Five Flags Civic Center Commission members this week offered mixed opinions on a new proposal to put more than $25 million into rehabilitating the center without expanding its footprint or seating capacity.

During a commission meeting, City Manager Mike Van Milligen discussed the proposal to invest at least $25.8 million into the facility to address a variety of needs and deficiencies.
