JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Upgrades will be coming soon to the tennis courts at the Earl Bell Community Center.

The City of Jonesboro and the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism have entered into a grant agreement in which each of them will pay roughly $61,000 to repair and maintain those tennis courts.

Mayor Perrin said they hope to get the work complete before fall.

In total, the repair work will cost $121,700. The city applied for the grant in 2015.
