East Hampton residents to vote on upgrading athletic fields

The Town Council will hold a unique combination in-person and virtual meeting Monday to act upon a proposal to renovate three athletic fields and the high school track. Residents will be asked to vote on approving $1.2 million for the upgrades. In addition to the track, the proposal also calls for reinvigorating the baseball field and the tennis courts at the school, as well as fixing “a small drainage problem on the soccer field inside the track,” Town Manager David E. Cox said. Last Tuesday, the Town Council agreed to retain the committee’s recommended firm, Cheshire-based Milone & MacBroom, to serve as a design consultant to work with the town. The consultant will be paid $70,000 to “develop plans, implement bidding and help oversee construction,” Cox said. The town will “bid most, if not all, of the construction work out,” Cox added.
