Ponca City Now - August 9, 2016 2:28 pm
Bids will be opened Thursday for the demolition of Hutchins Memorial Auditorium.
City Manager Craig Stephenson said he anticipates a contract award will be brought to the City Commission at its Aug. 22 meeting.
He said 16 contractors were present at the mandatory pre-bid meeting last week.
In place of the building, which was built in 1962, plans are being prepared for a concert hall to serve students at Ponca City High School. Hutchins is a 17,000 square foot building which had seating for 1,700 people, when chairs were added to the floor.
