MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) - A nearly $4 million construction bid has been awarded for the first phase of the renovation of the Corn Palace in Mitchell.

The Daily Republic (https://bit.ly/1k2WobO ) reports that Mitchell City Council members have agreed to make some changes to the original project to keep it within budget.

Council members scratched out a decorative tile planned for the base of the building, a felt wall finish on the upper floor of the lobby and seven small wind turbines on the south facade of the building.

But new all-glass doors for the main entrance pegged at more than $10,000 were added to the project.

The contract was given to Mueller Lumber.



The two-phase renovation project is expected to cost about $7.2 million.
