ONLY SIGN IF YOU ARE AN OHIO RESIDENT WHO PAYS TAXES TO THE OLENTANGY SCHOOL DISTRICT

To Olentangy School Board members: Serious Mis-use of Tax Payers Money:  TODAY THEY WANT MORE MONEY FOR TURF AFTER A LARGE LEVY PASSED. 

 

There are many reasons to sign this petition. You can get a list of all of them at: http://myosb.org

Here are some highlights:

Lead Poisioning. If we use artificial turf more, then outside of athletic exposure, young children (elementary) may be exposed when playing, marching, or visiting. 

Seach for LEAD

 

 

The new laws that have been implemented and signed by Governor Kasich and Senate Bill 316 will require additional operating capital for facilities. Turf decreases our working capital

Governor Kasich SB 316

 

 There is not any evidence by any local school district that turf "increases" the events at a field that has artificial turf -vs- one that does not.  

 

This is the language from the contract that will be presented for the vote THIS Thursday, we did not pass a levy  so they could buy astro turf for 3 football fields! 

Section II. The Board authorizes the Superintendent to enter into a contract with the best value proposer, as decided by selection committee formed by the Superintendent, in an amount not to exceed $1,266,666.67 to allow the design and construction work to proceed as expeditiously as possible and with no further delay to achieve completion before the 2012/13 school year begins with minimal interruption to the school schedule and activities. To the extent that any work has been performed prior to the Boardís action, the Board ratifies the action taken by the Superintendent to address the Project needs. The Treasurer is also authorized to issue a purchase order for the work.
