Fuel tanks have been removed from the northwest side of the Meridian Bridge in Yankton, which clears the way for its development.
The City Commission agreed in May to acquire the Stern Oil property for $130,000.
City Manager Amy Nelson says that Stern Oil is also responsible to remove the foundations upon which the tanks rested. Then the city will tear down the buildings on the site.
Gillas Stern of Stern Oil was not available for comment on the project.
The city's long-term plan is to use the property as a river front and recreation area.
