Tonawanda News — The board also discussed allocating $9,000 in the 2014-2015 budget to pay monitors at the middle and high school’s new fitness facility, which was also completed as part of the capital project.
Residents would pay $5 for a membership card and the facility would be open from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. The facility currently has 14 members.
“We’ll see how much traffic we generate, and we may have to expand those hours,” Superintendent James Newton said.
The board had discussed taking the $9,000 from each school’s budget, but Interim Financial Manager Richard Hitzges said the end-of-the-year surplus would likely cover the cost.
