MISSION—The Mission Consolidated Independent School District Board approved a preliminary estimated budget of nearly $2.3 million for synthetic turf and track re-surfacing at the Tom Landry Stadium and Veterans Memorial High School Stadium on Wednesday.
During the district’s committee meetings last week, Superintendent Ricardo Lopez recommended they look at the addition of synthetic turf.
“We are having to redo our tracks at both VMHS and at Tom Landry Stadium,” Lopez said. “Because we are looking at the tracks, we need to examine whether we want to move forward on surface turf. Once we do the tracks, we are not going to tear up the track again after spending all of that money to add turf.”
