(SD)-Belle Fourche Looking At Replacing Rodeo Arena Bleachers

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/13/2017 11:46 AM
BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) - Belle Fourche officials are deciding whether to replace the nearly century-old rodeo arena grandstands at the city-owned Roundup Grounds Sports Complex and how to pay for such a project. 

       The complex consists of soccer and baseball fields that require repair and maintenance, in addition to the rodeo arena.
     Mayor Gloria Landphere told a city council meeting last month they need to talk about replacing the bleachers because of the insurance liability.

      She says work has already begun on a master plan for the complex and that initial talks are focusing on the financial aspects of the $1.2 million projected cost of replacing the grandstands. Suggested funding sources include the city's hospitality tax, bonding, grants and fundraising activities.
