MANDAN, N.D. (AP) - The Mandan Park Board has awarded contracts for the first phase of work on a new $22 million sports complex.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1pZXryY ) that the $2.5 million package of bids was about $1 million less than projected.

Site excavation for the Starion Sports Complex could begin this month. The complex is scheduled to be ready for use by the fall of 2017. It will have a two-rink hockey area, a gymnastics facility and an outdoor track and field.

The facility is being funded through a special sales tax, $1 million from the Mandan Hockey Club and $750,000 from Starion Financial for the naming rights. The Mandan School District is leasing the facility for 10 years for $1.25 million.
