Board agrees to rebuild Putnam Stadium

ASHLAND — It’s official: The Ashland Tomcats and their fans will have a new stadium for the 2014 football season.

The Ashland Board of Education on Wednesday agreed unanimously to rebuild Putnam Stadium and hired two construction companies to do the work for $1.46 million.

The project includes new concrete foundations — the existing ones will be demolished — bleachers with fold-down VIP chairs, press box, concrete walkways behind the bleachers, fencing and lighting, plus preliminary plumbing for future restrooms.

It does not include locker rooms, for which the board expects to pursue financing later.
