ROCHELLE ó Although the weather hasnít cooperated much of late, some work has begun with constructing three new tennis courts at the Helms Athletic Complex at the corner of Eighth Street and Jones Road.

On Tuesday, a gate was removed and borings of the soil were taken as preparations for the demolition and building of new courts commence.

Flagg-Rochelle Community Park District director Eric Christensen told the park board on Monday night that bids for the work will be accepted soon and he is hopeful the new courts will be ready for play by mid-summer.

In addition, Christensen said bids are also being taken to fill the cracks and reseal a fourth court adjacent to the three new ones.
