Officials with the Midland County Horseshoe spoke with commissioners Monday morning about adding a new facility to their complex.
Some events currently held at the Horseshoe require a dirt floor and others don't.
Due to the varying needs of different events, crews need to add and remove dirt from the arena several times a year -- which takes 2 to 3 days to do each time. Those changeover times also restrict the number of days Horseshoe officials can book events.
Officials asked the county for a new building with a 40,000 square foot floor that can remain dirt free and separate from the main arena.
"I think this will give the county give us more places to seat concerts, to do things that are fun," the Horseshoe's Mike Dooley told Big 2. "It will help us bring in more shows. Put more people in hotels. Put more people in the restaurants. I think it's a very good addition for this county."
The new building could cost several million dollars to build, but Dooley says Midland County wouldn't need to raise taxes to build it.
