Published 12/22/2009, The Daily Republic
The Mitchell City Council postponed its decision on a proposed land swap Monday evening following nearly an hour of testimony from a large audience at City Hall.
The proposed swap is between the city and local resident Jerry Thomsen. The city would get Thomsen’s 3-acre lot and 11,360-square-foot building at the corner of Industrial and Tower roads, adjacent to the city’s new Pepsi Cola Soccer Complex. Thomsen would get the city’s wooded, 9-acre lot across from his lakefront home, near the intersection of North Harmon Drive and National Guard Road.
