The money comes from Capital Outlay funds. School Board President Anthony Vigil says the track is in need of repaving, and the field needs new grass.
“We will be redoing the track and making those repairs so that way it can be used to host track meets,” said Vigil. Vigil says they hope to have the work completed by the next track season.
