Medfield athletic project on track, under budget

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 20, 2007 01:56 PM


Workers have finished resurfacing the track at Medfield High School, and builders will now turn their attention to replacing the school's bleachers and press box, Town Administrator Michael Sullivan said recently.

The total cost of the project was initially slated at $300,000, Sullivan said, but officials are hoping that construction assistance from town highway workers will drive the cost down to between $225,000 and or $250,000. Town Meeting voters this spring appropriated $125,000 for the project, and volunteers are raising the rest of the money.

Sullivan said officials had hoped to complete all parts of the project by the beginning of the school year, but he now thinks that goal may be too ambitious.
