BRANDON, Miss. (AP) - The city of Brandon has received approval to begin building a multimillion-dollar amphitheater.

The Clarion-Ledger reports (https://on.thec-l.com/1KhB0cJ) Brandon Mayor Butch Lee received approval Monday from the board of aldermen to move forward with getting information on a bond for the facility.

Workers have begun to clear space for the 200-acre park in which the amphitheater will be located. The $7 to $10 million facility will seat somewhere between 5,500 to 6,000 and host music and community events.

The city passed a two percent food and beverage tax two years ago to help pay for the park and amphitheater. The tax generated about $850,000 in its first year.

Lee says the project should be completed in 18 months to two years.
