Council approves emergency repairs to Centennial Park gym
The Paso Robles City Council approved emergency repairs to the heating and air conditioning system at the Centennial Park gym.
The 25-year-old system is in disrepair with six of 11 units failing. All units will run in ‘cooling mode’. But, six units on the administration building will not work in heat mode or have been taken out of service because of cracked heat exchangers that could allow carbon monoxide to enter the building, according to a city report. Two of the units on the gym are nonoperational. One of the nonoperational unit supplies the heat to the gymnastics room. Presently the YMCA is using quartz heaters for the daycare program.
Estimated cost of replacing the units is $125,000 to $160,000, the report says. Instead of replacing them, the council approved a short term fix of $14,900 that may last until summer. The bid was awarded to Paso Robles Heating and Air, the only bidder.
The council also approved gas line repairs for multiple leads at its 625 Riverside Ave. facility.
