Johnson Park could be getting three new pavilions installed.

The Rockdale County Board of Commissioners heard about the plan to install these pavilions at 1781 Ebenezer Road, Conyers, during the board's work session Tuesday morning.

Andrew Morton III, capital projects manager for the Recreation and Maintenance department, told the board that all three pavilions, which is an open structure that can be used for specific events or general get-togethers, would be different in size with one being "large," another "medium-sized" and the last "small."

"It'll be really nice," he said to describe the aesthetics of the pavilion.

The cost to install the pavilions will be $115,426. They will be purchased from UltraSite, a subsidiary of the Tennessee-based PlayCore which manufactures outdoor recreation products including picnic tables, park benches and other items.

The "large" pavilion would include two outdoor tables and a grill. The "medium-sized" pavilion will be two-tier structure that will have two outdoor tables. The "small" pavilion will have only one table.

All the funds are coming from SPLOST dollars, Rockdale Finance Director Roselyn Miller told the board.
Post 1 County Commissioner Oz Nesbitt wanted to know how the public will be able to use the pavilions if they desired.
"The large one will have to be reserved, but the other two will be first come, first served," Morton answered.

The board will vote on whether to approve this purchase at its voting session Tuesday, May 26, which will be held at the Assembly Hall, 901 Main Street, Conyers at 10 a.m.

After the work session, the BOC entered executive session to discuss personnel changes and pending and threatening litigation.
