Work on the new grandstand project for Rickeman Field is currently in process. The concrete slab under the grandstand was poured the week of October 12th, and assembly of the grandstand structure has begun and should be completed before November. However, the press box piece of the grandstand will not be in Dell Rapids for another couple of weeks according to City Administrator Justin Weiland. The electrical portion of the project will happen when the press box is installed.
The Dell Rapids City Council budgeted $70,000 for the project for 2015 and then approved a proposed project estimated at $72,000 on Monday, August 3rd. The finished project included the new grandstand with mounted press box at the top, electrical work, and the new concrete pad under the grandstand.
