The county board is preparing for a new grandstand, though the old one has yet to be demolished.

The board voted to assign $500,000 toward a new grandstand, among other assigned funds.

County officials say preliminary estimates for a 1,000-seat grandstand with a roof, seat-backs and a small press box would run about $428,000, with a 1,500-seat grandstand costing about $620,000 and a 2,000-seat structure running about $813,000. County Coordinator Craig Oscarson told the board the Mower County Fair Board was looking to build at least a 1,500-seat grandstand to replace the old one.
