New Stage Floor At MCCC

The city council voted unanimously to approve a bid from Zeller Construction for $57,860 to repair the stage floor at the Marion Cultural and Civic Center. The floor is been made of yellow pine, proven to be too soft for the stage, as over the past decade it is coming up in chunks or separating. The new floor will be made of an oak hardwood plank and will be four inches wide, and one inch thick. The bid will cover the cost of demolishing the old floor, replacing the support structures, and installing the planks.
