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 city of Mitchell recently completed a housing study for a cost of about $28,000.
