FDL School Board Discusses Turf Field Topic

The conversation regarding a turf field for Fond du Lac High School started back in 2019. The discussion surrounding that subject was brought up again Monday night during the Fond du Lac School Board meeting.

The item was on the agenda with School Board President Mark Jurgella opening up the discussion, and asking for input regarding giving Facilities Manager John Williams approval to begin gathering information and pricing options for a turf field, and whether a feasibility study would be a logical move forward.

Dr. Susan Jones said there are many factors that would come into play regarding a turf field, and that it made sense to wait until the new superintendent for the district, Dr. Jeffrey Fleig, assumes his position in July.

A number of board members said if the turf field was to be placed at Fruth Field, it wouldn’t make sense and no further discussion would be needed.

The board voted 7-0 to table the discussion with the discussion to be brought back up at the June 28 Board Meeting.
