BROCTON - The Brocton Board of Education held its first meeting of the new school year on Thursday, Sept. 6.
Unfortunately some members of the public missed the beginning of the meeting. The doors at the School Street entrance were locked. One woman said that she had tried all the doors and was unable to find one that was unlocked. Finally, a passing maintenance worker unlocked the door.
When the locked-out public members entered, the board was beginning a discussion of a request by the Chautauqua County Stampede, an amateur adult football team, to rent the football field for five to six games. Their season would be in May through August of 2013. They proposed to pay the school $500 per game. Games would be scheduled on Saturday to fit around current high school and youth league schedules.
