WATERTOWN, S.D.–A local development company went before the Watertown City Council Monday night seeking a resolution of support for state infrastructure funding for a housing development.

Former Mayor Steve Thorson (pictured) spoke on behalf of High Five Development LLC‘s request by first explaining the Prairie Haven Second Addition housing development project…

Mayor Ried Holien asked Thorson for a timeline on getting the houses built…

Thorson says if High Five Development is successful in getting the state grant, they can use the money for such things as the installation of streets, which are expensive.

The resolution of support was approved unanimously by the council.
