MISSION—The Mission CISD Board agreed to budget for improvements to Tom Landry Stadium and Leo Najo Baseball Field on Dec. 11.
Roosevelt Rios, coordinator for purchasing, said the district had two options, and each option covered work on the Tom Landry Press Box, stadium bleachers and Leo Najo Baseball Field Bleachers.
“My concern is if you do a renovation or something like that, how do you know what the shelf life is for that,” said trustee Patricia O'Caña-Olivarez. “I know you like to bring us the less expensive option, but we need to know are we going to be spending what we would’ve saved at the end anyway.”
Renovations to the press box total $833,000, while option 2 totaled to almost $1.1 million for a press box with prefab construction. O’Caña-Olivarez said she would rather take the more expensive option if it will save the district money in the long run.
