Discussion on the expansion of the John Leslie tennis complex is expected to continue on Tuesday at the Lafayette County Board of Supervisors meeting. The committee that has helped raise awareness for the tennis project was scheduled to be on the board’s agenda. Tuesday’s meeting will begin at 9 a.m. at the chancery court Building.
Oxford Park Commission Executive Director Rob Boyd confirmed this morning that supervisors had the group on the agenda, although a new agenda had not been made public as of press time. The goal of Tuesday’s meeting is to continue the dialogue for the project, which has garnered support from the city of Oxford and University of Mississippi officials.
So far both government agencies have committed to help fund the approximately $3 million project with up to $2.3 million. (July 1, 2011, Page 8A)
