VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - In a story March 25 about a lawsuit over the use of a Vermillion building, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Eagle Creek Software Services was expected to sign a long-term lease to move into the Vermillion Technology Center. A lease agreement had already been signed.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Tech center looks for tenants, sues company that backed off

South Dakota technology business center looks for tenants, sues company that backed off deal

VERMILLION, S.D. (AP) - A $4.2 million building in southeast South Dakota that’s meant to host technology companies is looking for tenants after the facility’s managers sued a company that backed off a deal to move in.

The Vermillion Area Chamber & Development Company is responsible for the 32,000-square-foot facility in the outskirts of Vermillion. Executive director Nate Welch tells the Yankton Daily Press and Dakotan (https://bit.ly/1AVTIS7) that the Vermillion Technology Center was built for Minnesota-based Eagle Creek Software Services, but the company is no longer moving in.

Welch says the company entered into a long-term agreement to lease the building. Welch’s group, through the lawsuit, is seeking about $3.1 million in future rent.

A representative of the software company didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment on the lawsuit.
