Tonawanda News — “The track could be open to the community, but close at dusk,” Superintendent James Newton said. “I think we should try our best to do that.”
But some board members expressed concerns that the district will be liable for injuries on the property.
“If someone gets hurt, it is our responsibility,” Board President Sharon Stuart said.
Discussions about public use of the workout room and track will continue in the coming weeks.
Richard Ertel, of Amato, Fox and Company also attended Tuesday’s meeting to provide the external audit report on the district’s finances.
“Your financial position is very stable and very solid,” he told the board while presenting the review.
He noted some increasing costs, such as retirement benefits, but said the district is doing well controlling spending in light of reduced government funding.
“A-plus all across the board,” he said.
