The Sedgwick County Commission voted to rename the pavilions at the Kansas Coliseum and to keep them open until 2016.
The out buildings used for horse and dog shows near the Britt Brown Arena will now be called "The Kansas Pavilions." The commission also decided to keep the pavilions open for the next six years.
Capital improvement funds will be used to build a shower facility and to fix the parking lots at the pavilions.
The Wichita Kennel Club said if the county shut down the pavilions, the dog shows would be done. The Kennel Club sponsors one of the top five dog shows in the country every year at the pavilions.
