YANKTON, SD -
Yankton's City Commission is mulling ways to pay for 36 acres of surplus state land.
The state human services center property is valued at $1.96 million. Most of it is vacant land, and some is already leased for soccer fields.
The commission appointed a business improvement district board of directors that will explore ways to pay for the land.
City Manager Doug Russell says if the city buys the property, it can have some control over the area's commercial development. It is across from a new Menard's hardware store.
