County investigates improving soccer fields

Published: Thursday, July 17, 2014 at 03:37 PM.

Commissioner Pinki Jackel said the commission had planned to use state funds. David Sasnett, who coaches soccer, said the source of funding was not mentioned when the field was promised.

Jackel said state funding was used to develop most county parks.

 “Whether we have to pay for it, or the state has to pay for it, they’re going to have it,” Sanders said. “The priority right now is a soccer field.”

She asked Clay Kennedy of Preble Rish, the county’s engineering consultant, if a soccer field would cost $103,000. He said that it would be a tight budget for a lighted field.

“I would like for a cost to come before this board,” said Sanders.

 “This is another example of us not having the information in advance (of the meeting),” Jackel said

David Sasnett said he hoped there would not be more delays for the project. “We thought the numbers were already there. I’m not a commissioner. She (his wife) is not a commissioner,” he said.
