BOSTON — On Thursday, the State Senate voted to approve a budget amendment proposed by Senator Eric P. Lesser that provides $75,000 in state funding for enhancements to the athletic field at Minnechaug High School.
The resurfaced turf field will replace the existing field. The state funding will be in addition to an appropriation made by the Town of Wilbraham at its annual Town Meeting earlier this year.
“I’m proud to support Minnechaug Athletics and the Town of Wilbraham in this endeavour,” Senator Lesser said. “This funding will supplement the ongoing efforts on the part of the School Department and Town as they work to ensure that both the school community and broader community have access to a well-maintained playing surface.”
The funding must now be agreed to by the House of Representatives before heading to the Governor for his signature.
