Council to consider contract for band shell renovation

Thursday, December 30, 2010

McCOOK, Nebraska -- City staff will recommend that McCook Contracting be awarded the bid for the $156,754 renovation project of the Norris Park Band Shell, during the McCook City Council's regularly scheduled meeting Monday, 7:30 p.m., at council chambers.

The project will make improvements to the exterior of the building as well as make it more user friendly, according to the architect firm which drew up the plans.

Council members will also host a public hearing to discuss the application from La Cocina Mexican Food, for a Class 1B liquor license to sell beer, wine and distilled spirits. City staff has recommended approval of the license.

The second of three required readings will be presented to the City Council surrounding a McCook zoning ordinance change which will give specific existing homes, located in business commercial and light industrial zones, permanent status.

A proclamation designating the month of January as "Official National Radon Action Month in McCook" is scheduled to be presented for authorization as well.

How old is that band shell? I remember in the very late 1950's and early 60's as a kid playing around it. Remember the old water tower that froze over? Geez, I'm getting old! How did that happen?

This is another example of the city working to save usuable historic buildings even though it will cost more to rehab than build new.
