No cooking in new stadium’s concession stand
The new stadium at King George High School is getting ready for its opening game on Sept. 21.
“It’s great to see the progress there,” Supervisor Dale Sisson Jr. said on Tuesday.
Supervisor Chiarman Cedell Brooks Jr. asked if people will be able to cook in the new concession building.
County Administrator Travis Quesenberry said it will have a warming station only, that cooking equipment was cut from the budget because it cost another $50,000. The school boosters may provide some additional equipment, he said.
Also on Tuesday, supervisors approved the purchases of five modular trailers ($102,100) at King George Elementary School, five school buses ($386,730) and additional cafeteria equipment ($26,117).
Here’s an interesting tidbit: it costs $31,400 a year to lease a trailer, but only $20,420 to buy one.
NO COOKING ALLOWED
