Aberdeen May Add Another New Building

Aberdeen May Add Another New Building
ABERDEEN, SD -

Aberdeen could be getting a new library. City leaders have a location and are considering design plans for a new facility.

This would be the latest in a string of big Hub City projects within the past decade. Aberdeen mayor Mike Levsen says the community went through a stretch of time where leaders were hesitant to borrow money for big projects.

Within the past ten years the mayor estimates the city has taken on more than $50 million worth of infrastructure updates or replacements. Those include replaced or improved facilities for various city departments, a new waterpark and a current project renovating city hall. The city has also contributed to other projects such as the YMCA.

“We've had quite a task in catching up over the last 10-12 years. We've done it without having special taxes raised or anything like that,” Levsen said.

The city makes payments on its loans using revenue from the second penny sales tax.

The mayor says there is some opposition, but he expects a new library in town within the next four years.
