Dundee will play football in Penn Yan

    DUNDEE—The Dundee Central School football home games will be at a “Home away from Home” for this year. Due to construction on the sports field, the home games will be played on the Penn Yan Academy field. The first game is scheduled at 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3.
    During the meeting of the district board of education on Thursday, Aug. 11, physical education teacher Jennifer Hutches announced Dundee is renting the field in Penn Yan this year. Hutches said the neighboring district was “Awesome” to work with. Schedules for sports is on the district Web site.
    The most visible portion of current work, the football field and all weather track, are part of an $18 million capital project will result in a brand new sports facility.
    Board of Education President James Koehler spoke about the project recently. Koehler said the football field will be sodded in September. He said the field will appear to be complete. It will not be used this season to allow the sod to take root.
    Other improvements in the area include new bleachers and a new press box. The track will be ready for use for the spring 2012 track season. The composite track is a rubberized material placed on a paved surface. Lights could not be included in this capital project because of the cost, according to Koehler.
    Paving is another visible portion of the project. Koehler said the paving should be done before school starts.
    Koehler said this project was almost five years in the planning. Mildly referring it as, “A long process,” Koehler said, “A lot had to do with the cost.” Koehler said the whole project is running well below budget.
The major portion of the project is in the building. Work has been ongoing throughout the interior. Heating and ventilation projects will touch almost every room in the building. Flooring and painting of classrooms is included in the work plan.
    Funds are expected to be left over from the original project budget. The balance will be used for roofs. This would be addressed and will include insulation. Koehler said all the work on roofs was not done in the last project. This work has not been bid out yet.
    There was more good news. Koehler said the project has not encountered a lot of problems. He said he feels that by this point, any problems would have surfaced. Koehler said, “Everything says we will start school on time.” The first day of classes is Wednesday, Sept. 7.
