Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News)- The grass fields will no longer be mowed, painted over or played on at the three Monroe City high schools come fall.


Monroe City School's will join others in the parish by installing turf fields at Neville, Carroll and Wossman High Schools. The fields will consume three million dollars of a millage voters passed in November.

The school board wants to include additional upgrades costing another two million. All together the turf, track, drainage, and the fencing will cost more than five million dollars.

School board president Clarence sharp believes the upgrades will save the school system a million dollars a year.

The two million dollars for the added work will also come from the same millage voters approved for the turf project.

School board leaders believe the upgrades will put city schools on a level playing field with others in the parish.
