Longview — Gregg County commissioners agreed Monday to provide labor, asphalt and equipment for additional parking spaces at the rodeo arena the city is renovating.
The Longview City Council moved in December to spend $892,000 to replace structurally failing bleachers at the arena and replace them with new seating for 5,060 people. The renovation also includes new lighting and an announcer’s booth.
Assistant City Manager Chuck Ewings subsequently asked the county for the parking lot help.
