Lighting upgrades were previously completed on fields 5 and 7, the document said.
The total cost is about $187,000, city documents show. The city of Tomball will be contributing about $40,000, Public Works Director Beth Jones said at the meeting, with the rest being paid by Tomball Little League, which is responsible for maintaining and operating the sports complex.
Half of the funds will be paid to Musco Finance, a sports lighting company, at the time the promissory note is executed with the remaining half being paid to the company over the next five years, according to the city document. Jones said Tomball Little League anticipates it will pay off the balance quicker.
“The Little League is growing here in Tomball,” Jones said. “They anticipate paying off this note well within five years. They’re actually hoping to have it paid off within three [years].”
Council Member Chad Degges said he has personally spent many afternoons at the sports complex.
“This just brings so many people here and is such a jewel to us back there,” Degges said.
