There's money included in the proposed Danbury budget for the coming fiscal year to rebuild the track at Danbury High School.  The project was put off last year as the school underwent a massive renovation and expansion.  Many of the residents speaking at Tuesday's City Council meeting advocated for the upgrade, noting that many meets, practice sessions and competitions are not being held this spring because the condition deteriorated to the point where the track is not useable.  Mayor Mark Boughton says he understands their frustrations, but noted that they might have needed the property for the new annex.  He believes the bigger priority was getting kids in classrooms.  Boughton added that they're not happy students will not be able to use it this season, but that City crews are working to make sure it's ready for next season.
