During the Superintendent's Report at the Sweetwater ISD (Independent School District) Board of Trustees' meeting on Monday night, discussion was held on new seating to be installed at the Mustang Bowl.
Three samples were seen by the board. Each seat is expected to cost an average of $120 and would be installed in sections D, E and F, excluding the first three rows.
