$8M aquatic center to open by summer in Mitchell

MITCHELL, S.D. - Progress is being made on an $8 million aquatic center that voters in southeastern South Dakota narrowly approved two years ago.

Construction for Mitchell's indoor aquatic center began in March. Mitchell City Councilwoman Susan Tjarks says the facility is on track to be completed by the summer.

Fifty-four percent of Mitchell voters approved the $8 million center about two years ago.

Tjarks says she wishes the city could recoup the time lost to putting the project to a referral vote. She says that it'll be worth the wait in the long run and will serve the community for many years.
