DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — City Commissioners are looking to improve the Rip Hewes Stadium.

The stadium is more than 50 years old and commissioners want to make it more appealing to Dothan residents.

General Services Director Andrew Love stated new locker rooms, concessions and so much more to improve the stadium.

The city approved a request to work on the stadium for a budget of $542,000.

Love said this will be benefit not only football fans, but all Dothan residents.
