Hosting a Forum on EGCitizen.Com

Pretty soon I will be hosting a forum on the Elk Grove Citizen's website, I've already posted something there I'd like fan feedback on for use in an eventual story.

For all the money and support our local high school football programs get in this area, our facilities are really poor. Look at the conditions on the fields at Elk Grove and Sheldon high schools. Someone left the sprinklers on earlier this week at Sheldon and it was virtually all under water. Pleasant Grove and Sheldon play there Friday. Let's hope it dries out.

There is talk about replacing everything with artificial turf, but in the meantime does anyone in the maintenance department know how to keep an athletic surface in good shape? Or do they care? Seems to me safety should be a big issue to the school district.

Leave me your comments at EGCitizen.Com.
