Victoria City Council will vote Tuesday on $428,100 worth of renovations to the community center.
The funds will come from the community center budget, said Manager Alex Busken.
The work includes repairing walls and floors in the annex lobby, annex meeting rooms, dome kitchen and arena.
"We're just trying to make sure there is a good facility for the citizens of Victoria and the surrounding communities to use," Busken said.
Although the facility is booked almost every weekend, no events are planned to be impacted by the remodeling work.
While the dome kitchen is under construction, community center users can take advantage of the concession stand, which also doubles as a kitchen, Busken said.
The reinforced walls will make sure the facility stands up stronger to abuse and use, he said.
The council is also expected to discuss policies for the adult softball field and using a portion of sales tax to fund residential street projects.
Mayor Paul Polasek said the council needs to address the residential street needs.
"No one likes taxes, but we can't leave this work to the next generation. That would be irresponsible," he said.
