Repairs to begin at Sports Complex

The City of Biloxi has awarded a $170,000 contract to Mandal’s for storm repairs to the roofs of dugouts and pavilions and the Biloxi Sports Complex.

The federally funded work at the 66-acre complex is expected to begin in two to three weeks and should be complete in 120 days, in March 2008.

The project includes replacement of metal ridge caps on several concession building roofs, replacement of metal roof panels and fascias on bleacher pavilions and dugouts, and new insulated metal roofing on the soccer pavilion.
