Waupun Officials Approve Shared Use Agreement Of Athletic Facilities

(Waupun) An updated shared use agreement of athletic facilities between the City of Waupun and the Board of Education for the Waupun Area School District was passed this week as the city board voted to approve the memorandum for another five years.  The prior shared use agreement only on the Gus Thompson field, where as the new memorandum includes multiple athletic facilities across the city of Waupun.  City Administrator Kathy Schlieve spoke to the council about the changes saying this agreement is more extensive and looks at all facilities used.  The big change is really looking at true cost share and what it costs to run utilities at these facilities and regarding longer term maintenance agreements.  Other changes include the Waupun Area Junior/Senior High School being exclusively responsible for expenses related to high school sporting events, as well as a $15,000 turf replacement program.
