The board heard two different proposals concerning the pictures at their Monday board meeting.
Judy Terrell of the Kiwanis Club of Cadiz presented a proposal that would have split profits from the sale of team and individual pictures between the club and the board.
In the proposal, each player would have received a 5x7 team picture and one 3x5 individual picture with a cardboard frame for $10. Money from the sale of the pictures would have been split evenly between the board and the club.
Complex Director Jerry Radford estimated there were 250 kids participating in the summer leagues, with the board to receive around $1,250 if every kid purchased a photo package.
Nancy Moore from Southern Exposure Photography, who has taken the team and individual pictures for the past several years, said they normally give the Complex one dollar back of every photo package sold. She added their photo package costs slightly more, but includes more pictures.
Moore also said in addition to pictures, they offer baseball cards, photo buttons, and other novelties, with the Complex to receive one dollar for each of those items sold.
The board voted 4-1 to decline the Kiwanis Club’s offer and continue their business with Southern Exposure.
Carolyn Bland cast the lone dissenting vote, saying she “voted with her heart” and felt the kids deserved some of the money.
In other business, the board voted unanimously to amend the rental agreement of the Lexie Bush Convention Center to include the prohibition of lewd acts on the property and ban the possession of weapons, alcohol, and illegal drugs at the center. The motion passed by a unanimous decision.
The amendment came after several board members had been told of a recent birthday party that included male strippers.
“I thought it was a regular birthday party, and therefore, drew up the agreement,” Radford told the board. He later learned it included more.
Radford also said a new 18.5-cubic foot refrigerator had been purchased for the convention center for $500.
In other business, Radford said he had been approached by local resident George Sholar about providing security for the recreation complex grounds.
Sholar’s proposal would provide security every weekend and when the convention center was booked.
No cost figures were included, and the board did not take any action on the matter.
Radford also told the board that he had spent $120 to replace swings damaged at the playground and $160 to replace several lights that had been shot out.
Although no plans are in writing, Radford said discussions are underway with Trigg County Judge-executive Berlin Moore to close in the livestock pavilion that is adjacent to the convention center in the future.
