KEENE - President of Keene State College Anne Huot announced that the college will be picking up the extra cost of the damage that occured during the weekend of the Pumpkin Festival in October.
"As a leader in our community and with this in mind, I have decided that we will provide the necessary funds to cover the balance of the bill," Huot said in a press release.
Keene State suffered property damage in excess of $70,000, Huot said in the release.
Huot indicated that the college is an important part of the community.
"We are all one community - the future of the College is intertwined with the future of the city and its residents," Huot said. "My commitment to our shared future is the very reason that Mayor Lane and I initiated the College-City Commission - to develop a lasting framework that will allow us to work together continually rather than episodically."
The estimated cost still owed to the city is $32,000. The college said it intends to use funds collected from fines collected from infractions of the Student Code of Conduct.
