JANUARY 19, 2017 -TIPP CITY – Tipp City council Tuesday expressed support for proposed city participation in a schools’ stadium construction project, if the facility would remain in the City Park.

The Tipp City Exempted Village Schools Board of Education said it would make a decision at its Monday, Jan. 23, meeting on where a stadium project would be built.

The aging existing stadium is located in the park. The second location being considered is land next to Tippecanoe High School near Interstate 75.

City Manager Tim Eggleston outlined for council around $350,000 in in-kind services and cost sharing the council could consider for assisting in a stadium project.
