SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Money is still needed to fund a more than $6 million expo center in Woodbury County.

It's a project that's been in planning since 2005.

Project organizers say $2.5 million dollars have been raised so far for the "Bomgaars Ag and Expo Center."

The center would be located at the county fairgrounds in Moville.  Livestock, equestrian and other events would be held in the building.

The plan is to get the remaining money through Federal and State funds.

If not, county supervisor George Boykin, says they'll have to turn to either the private community or the county for the rest.

Either way, he says avoiding taxpayer money would be best.

"That's one of our goals is not to have to use any direct tax dollars for this particular project, and if we can get it done for that then we've accomplished a tremendous amount here," said George Boykin, Woodbury County Supervisor.

Project organizers are partnering with the county, the city of Moville, and the Woodbury County Fair Board.

They hope to have all funds raised by 2014, with the ag and expo center finished later that year.
