BEMIDJI, Minn. — Bemidji’s events center may have to spend as much as $80,000 to find out why it sometimes leaks, officials said Monday.

Mike Cronin, the Sanford Center’s operations director, reported to the Sanford Center Advisory Board on Monday that panels on the side of the building were bowing, causing water leaks in the center’s ballroom and service corridor areas.

Cronin said the leaks were sporadic, depending the direction and force of the rain.

The Sanford Center opened in October 2010.

Bemidji City Manager John Chattin said he’s been in contact with Kraus-Anderson and Leo A Daly, construction and architectural firms, respectively, that helped build the center.

Having an independent consultant investigate the leak could cost between $30,000 and $80,000 and the work may cause additional damage to the Sanford Center, Chattin said.
