Watson/Tressel training center funding short

Published: Fri, March 12, 2010 @ 11:25 p.m.


It looks like Youngstown State University will have to come up with an additional $700,000 to build its proposed Watson and Tressel Training Site Center.

The YSU Board of Trustees had set a $10 million price tag on the project which is to include a full-size indoor football field, a 300-meter indoor track, locker rooms and related facilities in 120,200 square feet of space.

The plan was to take $7 million from a bond issue borrowed for campus construction and renovation projects and raise $3 million in philanthropy to pay for it.

Gene Grilli, vice president for finance and administration, told the trustees’ Finance and Facilities Committee Friday, that, based on the low bid for the project, the funding is $713,132 short.

They should have spent the Wick Pollock money on the WATTS Center. We need to get that facility up ASAP in order for our sports programs to compete at this level.

Hope4theValley... go ahead and refuse to support YSU. You are doing a disservice to our community in doing so.
