YANKTON | City commissioners in Yankton want to study what they believe is a housing shortage.

The commission on Monday approved a motion to create a committee to explore a housing survey and how to pay for it.

Commissioner David Knoff says he's been told the city is lacking in apartments and houses in the $125,000 to $175,000 range, yet nobody is building.

Knoff says it may be that infrastructure costs are too high.

The Yankton Press and Dakotan reports (http://bit.ly/YV5A2V) that the city of Mitchell recently completed a housing study for a cost of about $28,000.
