The Mitchell City Council held a special meeting to canvass results from the special election to approve financing for the construction of an indoor aquatic facility.

The council approved the vote totals of 1,440 in support of the project and 1,213 in opposition.

The approved funding includes $4,808,880 in city funds, $2 million in lease purchase financing, $750,000 in Mitchell community project reserves and $500,000 from the Mitchell Area Development Corporation in the form of a loan repayment.
