The City of Sioux Falls is one step closer to getting its new administration building.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held Monday afternoon to celebrate the beginning of construction.

Bonds were sold in October, and those proceeds will be put toward designing, constructing, furnishing and equipping the new building.

City officials said the new administration building will help serve a growing Sioux Falls, but also attract the right people to work for the city.

"This new administration building with its modern amenities can provide us with additional tools to not only attract, but also retain our valued city employees," Rick Kiley, vice chair of the Sioux Falls City Council, said.

The City expects to open the facility by 2018 with the aim of centralizing departments into a government corridor in downtown Sioux Falls.
