JASPER, IN (WFIE) - The Jasper Consolidated School Board has approved fundraising for a new turf football field.

Booster Club president, Richard Farr, says they have also have preliminary approval to start fundraising for new entries into Jerry Brewer Alumni Stadium.

Athletic Director, Andy Noblitt, says the turf field will at least save them $19,000 a year.

The field is expected to be done before next season.

Replacing the stadium grass with turf is the first phase of the $4 million renovation project.
