Bids Accepted for Addition to Agri-Center

Lauderdale County supervisors accepted bids to build a new horse barn at the Lauderdale County Agri-Center Thursday.

Nineteen bids were submitted. The estimated costs for the new barn is $400,000.

"It will encompass about 10,000 square feet, maybe a little more," said Rob seal, executive director of the Agri-Center. "This has been a long-awaited project from the standpoint that this was actually an original design on the original building that never got built."

The new barn will serve as a warm-up area for horses. The Agri-Center is used for many equestrian events.

Seal says once the board approves a bid, the grand opening will take place at least 180 days after that.

Supervisors are not expected to vote on the bids until mid-April.
