PERRY, Ga. -- On Tuesday, Dec. 12 the Houston County Board of Education unanimously approved funding for a new field, track and scoreboard for Perry High School.

The new field will have synthetic turf instead of grass, which will make maintenance easier in the long run.

The track and field project is estimated to cost $1,433,595.43, while the new scoreboard, which will feature a video display, is estimated to cost $209,895.

Perry High School has not had any renovation since 2008 and will be similar to other stadiums in the county such as McConnell Talbert and Freedom Field after the work is completed.

The district is hoping to have the project completed by the end of May and says the field will be ready for the 2018 football season.

The project is funded entirely by SPLOST.
