Good news for soccer players in Rapid City as the ground breaking for a new complex this fall remains on schedule.
This news after city council approved a $1.76 million contract Monday, for the future 12-field complex on the northeast side of town.
The cost covers both an extension of the city's water main to the future complex off North Elk Vale Road, as well as irrigation and seeding.
The council has yet to decide on whether to use onsite wells or city water to irrigate the soccer complex's fields.
The Public Works Department will recommend using other options for water on a later date.
The total cost for the project is $4.6 million and the city already approved $3.8 million from a half-cent sales tax.
