City officials anticipate construction of the building, preliminarily estimated at more than $5 million, will take place in the spring after a building permit has been issued. They say a building permit is not required for the utility work.

The new auto center site is located just north of the present Mills Ford, Lincoln, Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and Ram dealership.

Besides the two auto dealerships in Willmar, Mills operates three dealerships in Brainerd.
