COLUMBIA, S.D. — A Brown County town is set to start construction on a new city hall building.

The American News reports that Columbia’s new city hall will be located on the site of the old city shop. Columbia Mayor Corey Mitchell says HKG Architecture designed the building, which hill hold the city shop and meeting room.

The town board in August accepted Wolf Construction’s $287,000 bid to build the new city hall. Mitchell says a $250,000 low-interest loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture will cover most of the building costs.

Mitchell says town sales tax funds will be used for the loan payments. He says building should finish in the spring.
