Sandwich Turf Field Funding in Jeopardy

fieldSANDWICH – The new turf field at Sandwich High School is in place and is being used, but the funding for the field may not be in place.

A sum of $500,000 had been inserted into the state budget for the project, but now the Patrick administration has put that funding along with many other line items in the state budget in jeopardy to make up a $329 million budget shortfall.

“I’m sick to my stomach,” said David DeConto, President of the Sandwich Sports Complex Committee.

Town officials are meeting tomorrow to discuss how to fund the bill should the state not come through with the money.
