A nearly $4 million construction bid has been awarded for the first phase of the renovation of the Corn Palace in Mitchell.
Mitchell City Council members have agreed to make some changes to the original project to keep it within budget.
Council members scratched out a decorative tile planned for the base of the building, a felt wall finish on the upper floor of the lobby and seven small wind turbines on the south facade of the building.
But new all-glass doors for the main entrance pegged at more than $10,000 were added to the project.
The contract was given to Mueller Lumber.
The two-phase renovation project is expected to cost about $7.2 million.
