MERRILL - A Merrill-based construction company wants to help build an 82,000 square-foot Expo Center on the county fairgrounds.

But, that might only happen if Lincoln County is able to move forward with plans by early summer.

A severe storm in June ripped down a big part of the old grandstand in Merrill.

The County had already been considering improving the fairgrounds for the last two years.

AGRA Industries' proposed arena would feature 3400 seats.

It would cost around $7 million.

Insurance would cover more than a million dollars of the cost, but that's only if the county has an agreement signed by late June.

The Public Property Committee will meet February 20th to discuss hiring an architect for the arena.
