The Dade County
Board of Education held a special called meeting last Thursday to discuss the
track facilities at Dade County High School.
Late last year
it was discovered that one of the radiuses was off and that the track was too
long. While the Board had discussed the issue before it was determined that
work wouldn’t be possible until spring when the weather warmed up.
questioned the contractor why preliminary work hadn’t been done earlier and
that now with expected repairs taking several weeks that they would be hard
pressed to be complete before football season.
indicated that repairs would take at least two months providing good weather
and no problems with rock were encountered.
After a lot of
discussion and questions from board members the meeting was adjourned to the
track to look at options and what could be done to solve the problem.
decision was made at the meeting the contractor and architect were looking into
the problem and would have a recommendation soon.
It is expected
the issue will come up at next week’s board meeting and work should begin on
the repairs soon.
