Watertown to get $24M multi-purpose facility

WATERTOWN (AP) — Watertown will be getting a new $24 million multi-purpose facility.

KWAT-AM reports that Watertown's city council has approved the project that would replace the existing rec center and swimming pool while adding flat floor space.

Mayor Steve Thorson says the project will be paid for with the city's 2nd penny sales tax. He says residents will have an opportunity to express their opinions about the building's design.

Thorson says he hopes crews will break ground in spring of 2015.
