The Mitchell City Council is arguing against designating City Hall as being historic, fearing that could affect plans to improve the adjacent Corn Palace tourist attraction.
The council on Monday night voted 6-1 to urge the South Dakota Historic Preservation Office not to recommend the building for the National Register of Historic Places.
The city has planned to relocate city offices to a new City Hall and incorporate the existing City Hall into the Corn Palace expansion or tear it down.
