FOX TWP. - On Wednesday evening, the Fox Township Supervisors approved forwarding an addendum to Elk County Catholic High School which increases the soccer team's fees to utilize the township's field for all of their home games. The school may choose to approve or reject the addendum.
Supervisors Dave Mattiuz and Mike Keller voted in favor of the fee increase, while Randy Gradizzi cast an opposing vote.
"I'm opposed to it. I think if we're going to change something, we need to do it at the beginning of the year when we do our budget," Gradizzi said.
Stipulations mentioned in the addendum were such changes of charging $50 per game, including the use of the park's electronic scoreboard, and $100 per game, including the use of the scoreboard and the lights; all practice sessions would be held at the SinterFire multi-purpose field, with no rental fee being charged to the team; all games and practice sessions would be scheduled through the Fox Twp. Recreation Facilities director, who is currently Debby Agosti, with consideration given to the use of the fields by the Fox Twp. Soccer League; rental fees would be paid to the Fox Twp. Secretary/Treasurer, who is currently Kathy Dowie, within 10 days of the month's end in any month the field is used; and as long as all conditions of the contract and the addendum are met, ECCHS and the Fox Twp. Soccer League would be free to make any arrangements between themselves to satisfy fees set forth in the contract and addendum.
