Yankton Chamber & Municipal Government

The recent series of events that has caused the green-flag event for this week’s filming of the Fireball Run television program to be moved from Yankton to Vermillion has led one member of the Yankton City Commission to call for the Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce to be brought directly under the umbrella of municipal government.

By making the Yankton Chamber a department of city government Commissioner Tony Maibaum says city leadership would have direct input into decisions related to how the community is marketed and what agreements are entered into.

Maibaum says keeping the Chamber outside of city government leaves the Yankton community at a competitive disadvantage.

Fireball Run is expected to be filming in Yankton and Vermillion this Thursday and Friday.
