The North Bend City Council accepted a bid to build a new pavilion in the city park at its April 5 meeting.

Fauss Construction of Hooper was awarded the job with a bid of $223,325. That figure includes removal of the current pavilion, some cement work and tree removal as well as construction of the new pavilion.

The structure will measure 30 feet by 50 feet, a 39 percent increase in size over the current 1,080 square-foot building.

The new pavilion will have several improvements over the current one, including a refrigerator, a sink with hot water, ceiling fans, counter space and cupboards.

The building will be shut and locked when not in use with overhead rolling doors on the serving windows. It will also have a garage door on the north side for greater access.

Serving counters will be made of poured concrete, which will be able to stand up to the use and abuse better than the current wooden counters.

“The hope is that this lasts for 100 years,” city clerk Theresa Busse said.

The style of the building will be built to match the look of the pool house.
Groups wishing to use the pavilion for functions will have to reserve it through city hall and pay a small rental fee which has not been established by the Council yet.

Construction will not start until after this year’s Old Settlers celebration, which is scheduled for June 24-26. The park pavilion is traditionally used for the Saturday night Chamber barbecue and the church food stand Sunday afternoon.
