Corn Palace Renovation Bids Higher Than Expected

May 16, 2014, 12:53 PM

Corn Palace Renovation Bids Higher Than Expected
MITCHELL, SD -

Bids for the first phase of a planned $7.2 million renovation of the Corn Palace tourist attraction in Mitchell have come in higher than expected, but officials say it shouldn't be a problem.

The two bids are close to the $4.2 million budget for the first phase but that other expenses such as design fees and furniture will add to the cost.

Development committee chairman Doug Dailey says the bid proposals include alternates that the group can work with. The committee will recommend a bid at the next City Council meeting.

The upgrade to the Corn Palace and the soon-to-be vacated adjacent City Hall includes new domes and lighting, larger murals and a walk-out balcony above the marquee.
