Progress on the construction of the Huether Family Aquatic Center at Yankton’s Memorial Park was the focus of a walk-through of the project held Friday afternoon with city officials.
Yankton native and former Sioux Falls Mayor Mike Huether says their foundations’ donation of one million dollars towards the project has been warmly received by the local community.
Huether says now is the best time for the local community to set its sights on the next major project to accomplish.
Huether says a goal of his is to make sure that anyone who wants to use the new facility will be able to afford to do so.
In December of 2018, by a margin of sixty-six percent, Yankton voters approved a twelve million bond issue for the new outdoor aquatic center.
