Plans for an enhanced concession kitchen at the Fairgrounds Arena are being drawn, in a vacuum, and when released , the operation of the eating spot will again go out to bid.
I am not sure the result will be different even if an estimated $200K is spent on modifications and equipment for the benefit of a private vendor. That's a ball park figure that has been given to anyone who ask, so no ,it's not made up.
The decision to bid is still a business decision, something not always understood by those in government. There was a sense of surprise when no one responded to the original bid specs.
Food will not be part of things when the facility opens in the late winter or spring.
