Lopez School Water Retention Facility sign now

Lopez School District plans to spend over $400,000 on a water retention facility to water the football field.

The School Board wants to build a large industrial pond next to Center Rd, immediately south of the tennis courts, lined with black plastic and secured behind a chain-link fence. The irrigation pond will have the capacity to water one ball field per season.

Is it really that important to water a field when the school has more dire financial needs?
A recent audit, requested by the Lopez School Board, revealed that the school is in need of $5,000,000 worth of repairs to the campus buildings, infrastructure, and grounds. Why is the School Board moving forward with the water retention project?

In 2007 the taxpayers of Lopez Island approved a bond measure for capital improvements for the Lopez School. Three of the four projects in the bond are over budget. Lopez School Board took out an emergency loan to pay for cost overruns on the HVAC, fire suppression systems, and the new roof.
Would you agree that we caution the School Board to reconsider this expenditure?

We as taxpayers request:
The reallocation of more than $400,000, slated for the water retention facility, to pay down current over-budget projects.
A cessation of all work related to the water retention facility until a single topic meeting is held at which the School Board presents a complete budget and gives justification before moving forward.

    In addition to petitioning that these funds be spent as the petition recommends I suggest that the entire football program be eliminated as a ridiculous squandering of the schools limited resources. Soccer is a fine team field sport and it only requires a

    This is a foolish way to spend monies which have more relevant and imperative needs. Projects that are over budget and underfunded are the reason this country is in the financial mess that it is.
