The Spanish Fort High School Toros Football team are the shining stars of the Eastern Shore city, but today, their city council did not vote in their favor.
Monday, June 1, the Spanish Fort City Council voted against a motion to install an artificial turf on the football field of Spanish Fort High School.
The city’s mayor, Mike McMillan, had proposed the project, noting that it made good business sense for the city.
While the turf would cost taxpayers some $760,000, McMillan said it has a 12 to 14 year life span and a 10 year warranty. Future replacement would be half the cost. He said the turf would end up saving the high school money, that it could use for other necessities.
