ST. CLOUD – The District 742 Board of Education discussed a new funding plan for Clark Field.

The field needs about $3 million in renovations due to mold and water damage.

Kevin Januszewski, executive director of business services, and Superintendent Willie Jett proposed using money from the district’s current levy, and money from the capital reserve fund for half the funding.

 

The new funding proposal was discussed this (Wednesday) evening, during the school board’s work study session.

The additional $1.5 million would have to be raised by the Clark Field Proposal Team.

Chairmen of the Board, Bruce Mohs believes it’s a good plan.

No official decision was made during the meeting. The board plans to revisit the idea before coming to a final decision.

The St. Cloud Tech Tigers football team was forced to play their home games last season at St. Cloud State University’s Husky Stadium, after the mold and water damage was discovered.  They’ll also play their home game there this year.
