USD 415 officials continue address issues with track

(KNZA)--Hiawatha school district officials continue to address issues with the new high school track.

Bubbles have formed in the surface of the track, which was installed in the summer of 2018. The track vendor, Beynon Sports Surfaces, has told the district they believed its due to water drainage issues on the visitors side of the track. However, bubbles have appeared in other areas of the track as well.

Beynon says it will not fix the track until the district addresses the drainage issues.

At Monday's USD 415 school board meeting, District Maintenance Director Chris Morey presented bids for track drainage repairs from Aller LLC and Knudson Construction,which included the installation of six 12-inch drains that connect underground and re-grading of the grounds on the visitor's side.  Aller submitted a bid for $39,500 and Knudson for $30,500.

Following a lengthy discussion, it was decided to get an opinion from Matt Sprick with the Natural Resources Conservation Service on needed repairs before moving forward.

The matter will be discussed again at the next board meeting on Monday, October 26.
