Turf, Track Project Gets Final "OK" From Town Council

August 10, 2011 by Josh Morgan

The Town Council approved the turf field and track replacement projects on Tuesday night, meaning ground could be broken in the coming weeks.
A site meeting is planned for this morning, August 10, and the contracts should be signed before the end of the week. With a 6-3 affirmative vote from the Council, both projects now are able to move forward after years of discussion.
The only new cost to taxpayers will be approximately $189,000 that the Cheshire Town Council approved on Tuesday night to supplement a previous appropriation for the track. The Turf Committee handed over a cashiers check for $231,610 on Friday afternoon and it has been deposited into the Town's bank account. All together, the Turf Committee donated more than $270,000 for the project. Coupled with a $525,000 state grant for the field, it was enough to move the project forward.
See a more detailed story, including comments from the Town Councilors and public, in tomorrow's Cheshire Herald.

Turf Track Project - Are we serious

As I make my daily drive to work heading from the North end down through the South I am amazed at the state our town's infrastructure or lack of. Pot holes and cracks in the road galore . Some of the roads were recently " repaired". Where are our priorities? So what on earth are we doing spending money on turf at the high school at the " approximate" cost of $ 189,000.00??? Let's get real and prioritize what is necessary in this economy and not spend money foolishly.
