NEW ARENA BLEACHERS GREET FAIR SPECTATORS

By John Teagarden

Linn County Fair and Rodeo spectators will be greeted by a complete new arena renovation at the 2013 fair. The 1950’s built wooden bleachers on pipe frames have been replaced by state of the art aluminum seating. Also a new energy efficient stadium lighting system has replaced the old lights that date back to the 1970’s.

“Obviously this is a HUGH improvement for our spectators, both comfort and safety wise”, stated fair board president Kelly Carbon, Mound City. The bleachers are a closed deck system that meets all industry codes as far as hand rails, handicap seating and safety fencing above the 10 row seats. Knee room between each row is increased 7 inches compared to the old bleachers.

The stadium type lighting system features 4 banks of lights on steel poles. The new lights will provide three times the brightness and for about 1/2 the energy use of the old system according to representatives of Musco Lighting , Des Moines, IA.

Fair officials have been concerned for several years about the aging of the old bleachers and lighting system and potential replacement costs according the Carbon. Last winter, with the help of county officials and legal counsel, a state statue was discovered that allows county commissioners to assess a tax levy up to 0.5 mil per year for long term capital improvements of county fairgrounds.

The estimated $325,000 of improvements are financed on a lease/purchase agreement. According to county officials, the 0.5 mil tax will cost an average household about $5 to $7 per year and less than 2 cents per acre on farm ground. Estimated pay off time is four years.
