The city of Savage is set to decide Monday if Prior Lake High School will receive a new 43-foot tall scoreboard for its football field.
The new scoreboard at the Dan Patch Stadium would include video, something that would generate money for the school's sports programs, according to district spokeswoman Kristi Mussman.
The scoreboard would cost $392,000, paid for by the Laker Athletics Booster Club, Mussman said. The club expects the scoreboard to generate up to $80,000 per year in revenue.
The Savage City Council is considering a conditional use permit for the new structure at a meeting at 7 p.m. that would allow the scoreboard to be built. It would violate current city codes without the permit.
Mussman said the Savage vote is the last hurdle for the scoreboard.
If approved, installation would begin after commencement on May 30. The old scoreboard would be installed at Twin Oaks Middle School.
