The committee is scheduled to meet next on Jan. 3.
The Board of Selectmen last Wednesday night appointed High School Lacrosse Coach Josh Field to fill a vacancy on the Athletic Field Study Committee. The committee is considering various options for improving the fields either with natural or artificial turf. The controversial issue was defeated at the last Town Meeting largely because of the estimated $1.5 million price tag for an artificial turf field. The committee has been meeting regularly to explore options. Its next meeting is set for Jan. 3.
