City-county government center opens in Brookings

Posted: Updated:

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - A new $12 million city and county government center in Brookings is making it easier for residents to conduct official business.

The 76,000 square feet facility took 14 months to build.

Brookings County Commission Assistant Stephanie Ellwein says people would often come to the county to get a building permit, then find out they're within city limits and have to go to a different office three to four blocks away. She says now they can just go across the hall.

The center will be dedicated Wednesday at 5 p.m.

Resident Steve Sprecher says the new digs are nice, modern, cleaner and a lot less cluttered.

The new center also frees up space at city hall and the old courthouse built in 1921.
