Quarterpath fields to undergo renovations

City Council members have agreed to spend $214,200 to renovate three softball fields at Quarterpath Park.

The unanimous decision allows a contractor to furbish the infields, laser grade the outfields and add irrigation to the field at 202 Quarterpath Road.

The work was initially in the 2017 fiscal year budget, although the scheduled work conflicted with the National Softball tournament in July.
