JeffCo BOE amends bid amount for Clay stadium turf

By Gary Lloyd

CLAY — The Jefferson County Board of Education on June 26 amended the bid amount for artificial turf at Cougar Stadium on the Clay-Chalkville High School campus.

The board at its June 5 meeting approved Shaw Sports Turf as the lowest responsible bidder with a bid of $480,000. The correct amount is actually $480,300.

The total cost of the project is $516,664.51 and will be equally divided between the city of Clay and the Jefferson County Board of Education.

The Clay City Council in May voted to enter into a facilities use agreement with the Jefferson County Board of Education, in which the city would provide up to $265,000 — roughly half the cost of new field turf — in exchange for usage of all school sports facilities through June 30, 2029. The target date for the field to be completed is Aug. 5. Clay-Chalkville’s first home football game is scheduled for Aug. 29 against Minor.
