Davison County Fairgrounds Athletic Training Proposal Moves Forward
Davison County Fairgrounds Athletic Training Proposal Moves Forward

A proposal to allow youth athletic training at the Davison County Fairgrounds will move forward.  Scott Houwman of Mitchell brought the proposal to the commissioners earlier this month, noting the lack of facilities in town for wintertime athletic training.  Batting cages, netting, and artificial turf would be added for baseball and softball training.  Training for other sports could eventually take place at the fairgrounds.  One concern raised by commissioners was removal of the equipment when other activities were scheduled to take place.  Other concerns raised were damage as well as cost to rent the facility.  Houwman addressed those concerns at the fair board meeting on Monday night.  The fair board voted to move ahead with the proposal; however, the commission did not vote on the proposal.  It will be further discussed and a contract may be drawn up by the next county commission meeting.
