Work continues on Dixon soccer field

Posted: Updated:

Restoration has begun on the damaged soccer field in Dixon, Kentucky. 

Wednesday night, parks board members and other volunteers spread straw over the freshly seeded field.

The soccer field kicked up controversy after officials say the mayor's husband carved up the field without permission, and was later arrested for allegedly hitting a man with his tractor.

Initially, the field was to be left as is until the investigation was finished, but board members got the okay to start restoring the field.
