Mitchell's mayor says the sudden resignation of the director at the city's Corn Palace will not affect a $7.2 million renovation planned for the tourist attraction.
Mayor Ken Tracy says the bulk of the planning is already done and the project will move ahead as planned. Construction is to begin in less than three months.
Mark Schilling on Monday abruptly stepped down after 13 years as Corn Palace director. Tracy said he asked Schilling to resign following a state audit that found several policies and procedures weren't being followed. The state Division of Criminal Investigation is now looking into the matter.
The audit hasn't been released to the public. Schilling told The Associated Press that he doesn't think he did anything wrong.
