    Six of the seven Brewster Board of Education trustees voted Tuesday in favor of moving forward with major improvements to the high school track.

    “At this point in time we have serious concerns about the track,” board President Dr. Stephen Jambor said. “…Unless it’s addressed, the condition of this track will continue to deteriorate, and in fact, we’ll be faced with an even bigger job.”

    The project will cost approximately $221,000, according to Joseph Charbonneau, vice president for the board. Thanks to a $100,000 grant secured by State Sen. Greg Ball, and roughly $35,000 from the Brewster Sports Foundation, the district’s contribution will likely come in at roughly $86,000, or about 39 percent, he said. (ARTICLE)
