The Mitchell City Council will meet tonight due to the Labor Day holiday yesterday. One discussion item on the agenda tonight is a proposed new indoor swimming pool. The council has passed on first reading the creation of a project fund and appropriated $25,000 to pay for the proposed indoor pool’s design. The pool is estimated to cost around six million dollars and would be located on the Dakota Wesleyan University campus. A second vote on the indoor pool is expected to be held tonight. The council will also discuss the new city hall building which would be located on the corner of West 1ST Avenue and North Main Street. Plans for the two-floor building were unveiled during a city budget hearing last month. Tonight’s council meeting begins at 7:30 at City Hall. Committee meetings begin at 6:55.
