Pool Project Discussed At Council Meeting

The Mitchell City Council on Monday night discussed the possibility of building an indoor pool, which would be located next to a new wellness center being built by Dakota Wesleyan University just south of campus. The cost of the pool would be about six million dollars.

Mitchell Aquatic Club President Ryan Huber said the club could contribute one million dollars to the project.  Mitchell Mayor Ken Tracy said the city would use money set aside by the council for the past few years and revenue from loan payments to make a one million dollar down payment. The city would then make yearly payments of 300,000 dollars. The B-Y water project will be paid off in five years. A portion of that annual 700,000 dollar payment would also be used to help pay for the pool at that time.

The pool project was a discussion item only, so no action was taken.
