City of Deadwood and Lead-Deadwood School District Consider Use Agreement for Ferguson Field

A five-year agreement was introduced to the Lead-Deadwood Board of Education on November 8th regarding the use of Ferguson Field in Deadwood, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. Currently, ambiguities exist regarding various maintenance responsibilities associated with the field. The use agreement would require the Lead-Deadwood School District to pay the City of Deadwood $1,200 per month September through November.

There are many expenses tied to use of the field by the school district, which are currently being paid by the city. Utilities, maintenance, and groundskeeping are all included in the rental agreement. The agreement also includes terms for concession stand use and scheduling of the field.
