Boys & Girls Club Allowed to Use School Fields


School boardmembers agreed to allow the Boys & Girls Club to use seven school district fields after some backlash from public commenters at the last two meetings. The club plans to create four junior high school–aged tackle football teams, but volunteer members of the Youth Football League have opposed, arguing their league has served the community for more than 43 years and has had continuous problems gaining access to fields. The approved “Field Use Agreement” for the Boys & Girls Club relinquishes district oversight of the program, an issue in question at the last meeting.
