At the request of Councilman Ray Marquez, the Big League Dreams baseball park on Fairfield Ranch Road will be placed on the city council agenda at 7 p.m. Tuesday for discussion.

Mr. Marquez has long been concerned that the city is not getting a return on its investment.

The city council will be shown the original 1999 agreement, graphs showing the financial picture since 2012-13, and improvements made to the park over the past three fiscal years.

In other business, the council is expected to award a $3.7 million contract to Kasa Construction, Inc. for the construction of Los Serranos Park on Bird Farm Road adjacent to Chaparral Elementary School.

According to a city council report, eight bids for the project were received July 19 but only four prospective bidders were eligible because of math errors by the others.

Of the four, Kasa was considered the low bidder, according to the report.

Total cost for the project is $4.8 million including the design contract, project management, inspection, testing and contingencies. The contract award will appear on the consent calendar, which means that if a councilperson or member of the public does not ask for discussion, it can be automatically approved.
