High School Fields Cost Another $40K

Change order for more manpower, infill rubber by contractor adds to Irene-related cleanup costs, Superintendent says

High School Fields Cost Another $40K

The  cleanup, as revealed at Monday night's school board meeting.

Superintendent Daniel Fishbein told the board that because of additional manpower and an unexpected replacement of cryogenic rubber infill at both Stevens and RHS Stadium Field, contractor LandTek has increased its charge by $40,000, bringing the total Irene cleanup and restoration to $158,000.

The district has been for its decision to construct turf fields in a known flood plain, though the weather has been an anomoly and participants get more use out of them.

Fishbein said the district is in the "last phase" of the Irene-related cleanup.
