New facilities planned
At Tuesday’s night’s Brownstown Central school board meeting, it was announced that plans are in the works for an 8-lane track and turf field at the high school.
The following statement was read by the board:
“Though the scope of the upcoming 2018 construction projects has not been fully formed and is far from finalized, we anticipate, and wanted to inform the public as early as possible, that a turf football field and an eight-lane track will be included in the scope of the project.”
The school board will vote on the proposal in October’s meeting.
