Centerville government schools work to fund artificial turf
Centerville school leaders turned to parents to figure out how to raise more money for a new artificial turf. Parents met with the athletic director at the high school Tuesday night.
The district wants to build an artificial turf field for the soccer and lacrosse teams.
School leaders say an anonymous donor already funded more than half of the $520,000 project.
Officials say artificial turf is a worthwhile investment.
“The teams are not the only entities that are going to be able to use the artificial turf, with the stadium, with grass, concerned about letting certain people on there, it’s gonna wear the grass down for the teams that are playing,” said Rob Dement, athletic director.
School leaders are adamant that they will not use levy funds for the turf.
