PILOT ROCK - The city council worked through a few of the confusing kinks over city's responsibilities with The Bike Pit OHV park at its meeting Tuesday night.
The council voted to officially declare The Bike Pit a city park and voted to support it with public funds. The votes was not unanimous.
The council also voted to split the cost associated with drawing up a legal contract or agreement regarding the park. City Manager Paul Koch learned it would cost $700. The city and The Bike Pit board will split the cost 50-50.
Koch said the agreement will likely clarify the city's and the board's responsibilities when it comes to the park. If the city approves the grant for a Bike Pit master plan, it would further clarify those roles, as well as plan for what improvements happen when.
