The group also sought support from the Corn Belt Real Estate Association, which was holding its annual meeting in Mitchell. The two businessmen canvassed the city for support and by the end of the day had raised $3,700 toward building the new Corn Palace.
Some Mitchell residents were without water Saturday afternoon after a water main break along West First Avenue. Workers from the city responded around 3 p.m. to a water main break between North Sanborn Boulevard and North Edmunds Street.

The water was shut off for area residents most of the afternoon, Johnson said as repairs took about five hours.
