WORTHINGTON - The Worthington City Council on Tuesday met with District 518 Superintendent John Landgaard and two members of the school board during a work session to discuss the future of proposed soccer fields and where they should be located.

Earlier this year, the city had decided to move forward with refreshing some old designs for Buss Field that would give them a cost estimate for three fields, using sod from Prairie View Golf Links. Those plans were put on hold when the school district asked the city to consider a collaboration for soccer fields on the property they have purchased on the Vogt Farm.
