Council Approves Appropriation Of Turf Grant | The Cheshire Herald

Nov 21st, 2009 | By | Category: Artificial turf, Health

The Town Council appropriated a state grant to be used for field turf Tuesday night, but the vote does not guarantee the installation of a new field at Cheshire High School.

In a 6-3 vote, the Council appropriated a $525,000 grant for synthetic turf at the Maclary Athletic Complex. The Town originally accepted the grant in 2008, although it was not immediately appropriated as a Field Turf Study Subcommittee was formed to investigate health risks and costs of installation. The Committee presented its report on Nov. 17, with the Council ultimately giving the go ahead for the project and for organizations and residents to begin the fundraising process.
