Brookings County Commission Assistant Stephanie Ellwein (right) details the floor plan of the new Brookings City & County Government Center for an attentive Sen. Tim Johnson, as City Manager Jeff Weldon and Commission Chair Deanna Santema look on.

Shown here at the information kiosk on the building’s main floor, Johnson was given a floor-by-floor tour of the facility Monday by Ellwein and Weldon. Accompanying the senator were representatives of both the council and commission. The $14 million-plus facility is the only shared city-county office building in the state. Besides his visit to downtown Brookings, Johnson and his team also toured the Sun Grant Initiative Lab on the SDSU campus, where he discussed university research initiatives with professors and administrators.
