Budget worries cause repairs to go off track

MONROE - With an increasing budget deficit, a shrinking fund balance and grim prospects for state funding, the Monroe school board decided Monday to delay resurfacing the high school track, which was slated for this summer. According to Tom Rufenacht, the district's building and grounds director, the project has already been delayed for about three years, considering the track was put down in 2000 and the rubber surface should be replaced after 10 to 12 years. "Eventually we have to spend the money to get it done," he said.
