City Council advances contribution for Miss USA, Miss Teen USA

The Bossier City Council will vote in two weeks to approve an ordinance appropriating $50,000 from the Hotel/Motel Taxes Fund to support the Miss USA and Miss Teen USA pageants coming to the Shreveport-Bossier area in May.

The council also awarded a bid to Boggs and Poole Construction for improvements at CenturyLink Center. The bid of $698,000 is for external storage, cap stones on wells, a new ticket office, new concessions areas and rehabbing the holding kitchen, all locker rooms, and restrooms.
