YMCA Renovations

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - The Billings Family YMCA is on schedule to finish its complete renovation of the women's and men's locker rooms.

The construction crew started more than two months ago, and expects to have the men's locker room finished by mid-August.

Both locker rooms will have a new sauna, a new hot tub, and completely new tile and lockers. Project leader Lane Huffman is very happy with his team's progress.

"The plumbers and electricians are going as quickly as they can in the showers the bathrooms and the vanity areas," he said. "We can sheetrock (the bathrooms and vanity) by the end of the week, and we have tile scheduled to start in two weeks."

The women's locker room will be finished early this fall -- two months after the men's locker room. The project's total cost is $1.9 million dollars.

    Big concerts like Tuesday night's Tim McGraw show at MetraPark aren't just good for fans - they're good for local businesses, too. The concerts draw in many people from out of town, and according to Kelly McCandless from the Billings Chamber of Commerce, the average visitor who stays overnight will spend about 250 dollars in the Magic City. Some of that money will go to retailers, but hotels and restaurants also get a boost - especially when they're close to the attraction."Depending on the e...

    The Tim McGraw concert at MetraPark is one of the Magic City's biggest events of the year, with more than 8,700 tickets sold. But according to MetraPark's sales and marketing director, the concert might not have been possible without another big event in Metra history - the Father's Day Tornado. Some shows like this would have had too much gear, such as heavy stacks of speakers, for the arena a few years ago."The Father's Day Tornado tore the roof off the place, but it gave us an opportunity ...
