Yankton City Commission approves donation to Mount Marty field house

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – The Yankton City Commission approved a proposal from the Business Improvement District to donate $1.8 million to Mount Marty College for construction of their new field house.

City Manager Amy Nelson says the payments will stretch out over about 15 years.

Mount Marty College Athletic Director Chris Kasson says the field house is projected to cost about 11 and a half million dollars.

BID Board Chairman Dan Specht says this is why the hotel and motel tax was implemented.

Construction on the field house may start early next year.
