An effort is underway to update and repair the only all-weather track in Greene County.
Gordon Rahe, who’s had four kids compete at the Carrollton High School track and volunteers his time working various meets, was put in charge of the effort to save the Carrollton track a few months ago.
Rahe says the project is worth the money, because the entire Greene County community continuously uses the track for walking and recreational purposes.
“The total is going to cost about $130,000 with the one-percent tax we passed last year. That goes to building and grounds and that will pay for half of it. We need to raise the other half and that is around $65,000. Right now we are at a little over $20,000 that has been collected and pledged so far.”
