NORTHWOOD, Iowa (AP) - A grant of more than $190,000 will pay for a makeover of a northern Iowa grandstand that dates to the 1930s.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/Qrz0ZC ) Thursday that the Worth County Development Authority approved a $193,830 grant for the renovation of the Worth County Fairgrounds grandstand.

The grant to the Worth County Beautification organization was among $855,372 given out by the authority, which is the charitable arm of the Diamond Jo Worth Casino.

Worth County Conservation Director Dean Mueller, who heads the beautification group, says the money will pay for a stairway this is accessible to disabled people, the replacement of crumbling concrete, new aluminum seating, a new announcer’s booth and cable safety railings.

Work is expected to begin in July.
