CAPITAL IMPROVEMENTS UPDATE
Motion made to release $30,301.25 from the capital improvement fund to cover improvements to the field between Learning Lane and Field #1. Improvements include the re-grading of the field, installation of a sprinkler system and tying it into existing system, and hydro-seeding. The funding also covers the design and construction of a new snack bar with bathrooms and septic system. That leaves us $26,000 in the black. One stipulation is that the project be complete before school re-opens.
Dave Carter and Jen Hardy have worked to revise the lease as follows: · term of the lease has been increased to 10 years · description of the land covered by the lease has been revised to include the new field. · sublet terms have been revised so that PYS can freely sublet the fields for Mass Youth Soccer sponsored activities.
There is also a verbal agreement that lacrosse be able to use the field in the spring. Dick White has reviewed the lease and will present to School Committee and Board of Selectmen for approval. Approval is expected.
MOTION: Release $30,301.25 from Capital Improvement Fund as stated above. PASSED.

Planning has donated about $6,000 in engineering work. Al Wood has made a major donation
