Sheldon Monson of the Wadena County Ag Society asked the Wadena City Council for an extension before demolition of the fairgrounds grandstand which was damaged by the June 17 tornado.


On the Dec. 14 meeting, Monson said he had Tim Tobin of Seating and Athletic Facility Enterprises look at it and said the existing structure could be salvaged.

"He said it would be about half the cost of a new grandstand," he said.
