The estimated cost per court was $35,000 dollars. Prior to the meeting, $90,000 dollars had been raised between contributions from Vernal City, Uintah County, Ashley Regional Medical Center, Uintah Basin Healthcare, the Rocky Mountain Power Foundation, and the Healthy and Happy Lifestyle Committee. The Rec board approved $50,000 dollars as a contribution from the Rec District and the motion passed unanimously. Bid packets are available at Sunrise Engineering in Vernal.
