West City Limits Road

Tuesday, May 3, 2016

At yesterday’s meeting members of the Yankton County Commission declined to pay a bill which had been submitted to them from the city of Yankton for the recent repair work that was done on West City Limits Road. Yankton County Commission Chairman Todd Woods says which entity, the city or county is financially responsible for maintaining West City Limits Road is unclear. The bill was for about four hundred twenty-five dollars and Woods says since the work was not approved by Yankton County ahead of time the commission declined to accept it. Woods says he thinks that following the future annexation of the Westbrook Estates Housing Development, all of West City Limits Road will be within Yankton city limits.
