The total estimated cost is $14,262.98.
This includes indoor field turf, two soccer goals, protective netting and the hardware for installing it, soccer balls, and a portable scoreboard.
Jason Perkins, director of the Town of Webb Recreation Department, will bring a proposal before the Town Board on Monday, January 20, at 5:30 p.m. for the installation of indoor soccer turf at the North Street Pavilion in Old Forge.
Funding for the turf would be made possible through a $15,000 grant from New York State Senator James L. Seward’s Legislative Member Initiative Project, administered through the Department of State.
According to Perkins, the entire cost of the proposed turf would be covered by the grant.
The turf is fully removable and would be enclosed by netting to protect the interior of the building, he said.
He invites feedback from the community on the proposed project by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via facebook at: facebook.com
