December 9, 2010

PUNXSUTAWNEY — The Punxsutawney Area School Board won’t charge the Mathog Wrestling Club for its winter tournament until March, but it still realizes no solid decisions on tweaking the existing building usage fee rates.

Business Administrator Susan Robertson said Tuesday that the usage fees were changed this summer, and Superintendent Dr. Keith Wolfe said there are three categories: School groups, non-profit groups and for-profit groups.
