WATERTOWN, N.Y. -- Lawmakers in Watertown were a bit shocked at the price tag one company estimates it would take to rehab the City's Fairgrounds Arena.
A Rochester based firm presented a study to the city that said it would cost about $10 million.
But that included things like a yoga and arcade room, the bells and whistles the city says it can do without.
What it wants is a more barebones fix up, new locker rooms, restrooms, a roof and floor and more seating.
That cost would be significantly lower and still make the arena viable for organizations and fans.
"We're trying to make it more user friendly for everybody who uses our arena. We're trying to make it safer. We're trying to make it more updated and hopefully increase the capacity at the same time," said Erin Gardner, Watertown Parks and Recreation Supervisor.
The city will once again meet with that Rochester design team at a work session on January 13.
