Word that Sullivan Field is to be off limits to non-school activities brought county officials and members of the public to the podium during Thursday’s school board meeting in White Rock.
The issue surrounding field usage began to simmer last year following a large-scale employee picnic held by Los Alamos National Laboratory during which the track was damaged.
County Administrator Max Baker submitted a letter of concern to Superintendent Mary McLeod in December.
“As you may know, John Wolfe of your staff has been meeting regularly with the County’s Recreation Manager, Randy Smith, regarding the Joint Use Agreement that we currently have with the district,” Baker stated in his letter. “As the reciprocal use of facilities was discussed during a recent meeting, John informed Randy that the district would no longer be allowing public use of Sullivan Field due to damage that was caused by a non-school user. John stressed the importance of treating all of the public the same; therefore, he told Randy it was likely that the county would not be able to use the facility.”
