City takes over soccer complex

YORK – As of Oct. 1, it became official that the city will be taking over the soccer complex.

Cheree Folts made the announcement Monday, but projects were already budgeted for the complex, using LB 357 funds.

The soccer complex had been an operation of the York Sports Authority.

Folts said Monday the York Soccer Fields will eventually have an underground sprinkler system, which will ensure “luscious green grass” throughout the growing seasons.

“We just can’t wait to get started,” Folts said.

26,000 has been budgeted for replacing the soccer goals which have been worn due to wear and tear. Also at the soccer complex, $10,000 in LB 357 funds have been budgeted for replacing the player benches with aluminum full-size benches. And $20,000 has been budgeted for fertilizer, aeration, inner-seed, grass seed, etc. As Folts explained during the budget process, “The playing conditions are not up to the city’s standards this would be an initial start-up to get the playing fields a jump start.”
