Field Rentals, Naming Rights Likely Coming
Montville school district business administrator said changes could be coming soon.
The Montville Township Board of Education is still considering charging for rental use of its athletic facilities, which would include athletic fields and the track at Montville Township High School.
According to district Business Administrator James Tevis, the discussion on whether or not to charge outside parties to rent district facilities has to go to the district’s policy committee first.
After that, he said, the subject will be up for discussion within the context of a board of education meeting. Tevis estimated that this would occur “probably within the next month.”
“It will be coming to a board meeting for approval once the policy committee meets first and discusses it,” Tevis said.
Tevis also told Patch on Tuesday night that the naming rights to the Montville Township High School football field have been advertised for bid.
“(The naming rights have) been legally advertised,” Tevis said.
Tevis said the possibility does exist that the grass surface on the field will be replaced with a synthetic turf surface, but only if the district receives a bidder for the field’s naming rights.
