School Board Approves Plan For New Concession Stand

(Le Mars) — During Monday evening’s Le Mars Community School Board meeting, board members approved an estimated $600,000 cost to build a new concession stand near the football stadium, and the renovation of the middle school restrooms.  Architect Rick Dean of the Cannon, Moss, and Brygger firm explained the details to the school board. The proposed new concession stand will feature a new ticket sales area, new restrooms, an area designated for tailgate serving, as well as a covered picnic area next to the tail gate preparation and serving area.  The proposed facility will feature a larger concession prep and sales area than the existing concession stand. School officials have set March 30th as the date for contractor bids to be opened and for a public hearing on the proposed project. Construction for the new facility is hoped to begin in early May with completion done before the first home football game in the fall.
