The Noyac Civic Council will meet on Tuesday, November 15 with a focus on educating the public on the synthetic turf proposition the Sag Harbor Board of Education will place before the voters on December 14. The Sag Harbor School District will ask voters to approve spending an additional $365,000 from the Capital Reserve Fund to supplement the $1.62 million bond for installation of synthetic turf at Pierson after initial bids that came in higher than what was approved by voters in 2011. If voters approve the additional $365,000, it will be to install a smaller synthetic turf plan than what was proposed in 2011 with a newly estimated cost of $1,985,000. The proposed turf will be comprised of a coated crumb rubber called “Cool Fill.”
Superintendent Katy Graves and Business Administrator Jennifer Buscemi of the Sag Harbor School District will give a presentation at the meeting. In addition, Patti Wood, Executive Director of Grass Roots Environmental Education Organization will educate the community on synthetic turf versus natural grass. The meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m.
