One point three million. That’s the estimated cost of turfing Legion Field in Grand Rapids.
Independent School District 318’s school board held a workshop Monday to discuss two topics- Legion Field and Phy Ed.
A group, led by Tom Saxhaug, approached the board on Monday asking for a financial commitment. Some board members said they were hesitant to name a dollar amount. District Financial Officer Pat Goggin told the board that there is no big pot of money and that anything not raised by fundraising would have to be charged to taxpayers. The board approved a letter of support for the project, but no school monies.
