Starpoint to hold hearing on artificial turf

PENDLETON – The Starpoint Board of Education will hold a public hearing during its meeting Monday on which of two possible types of infill should be used for the district’s new artificial turf athletic field.

The hearing, set for 7:20 p.m. in the board room at the school on Mapleton Road, will follow a presentation by a representative from Chenango Contracting, which will install the FieldTurf field approved by voters as part of a recent capital project.

The choices for the base of the field are SBR crumb rubber, generally made from ground-up tires, or EPDM, ethylene propylene diene monomer, a synthetic rubber material.
