Troy meeting on Alparon Park tonight
TROY - The meeting concerning the Troy Area School District's rent situation with Alparon Community Park will be held tonight in Troy.
At the meeting, residents will have a chance to share their ideas with the school board on the matter.
Last week, the school board agreed to hold a community meeting at 6 p.m. in Memorial Auditorium on Tuesday, June 18. The board's regular meeting will follow at 7 p.m.
The Troy Area School District athletic director said previously that the school district is looking for other out-of-town sites for its home football games this fall as a result of a stalemate in negotiations with Alparon Park. No decision has been made, however.
The official message on the district's website regarding the meeting states that it will be held "to discuss the options for playing home football games.
The district is weighing whether to play the games at either the Towanda Area School District field or at Mansfield University, according to district athletic director Ché Regina.
The stumbling block in the negotiations between the district and the park is a proposed increase in the district's rent for the use of the park for the football games.
