The Greenfield School District will investigate how the costs got so high for a new concession stand at Greenfield High School.
Doubts expressed by some Greenfield residents, piled on top of doubts of some Greenfield School Board members, about whether the school district paid too much for the concession stand triggered that decision by the board Monday.
The 12-by-12-foot structure cost $68,000. It was built as part of a massive update of the high school that was paid for with $48.5 million in funds approved in referendums in 2007 and 2008.
School Board President Bruce Bailey said people have told him the cost of the concession stand seems excessive.
The board isn't expecting a refund, but if the process of approving spending was flawed, it needs to be fixed, said board member Cathy Walsh.
