DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- After 14 years of discussion, plans for a water park in Dodge City took another step toward reality when city and Ford County commissions approved making the project eligible for funding from a special sales tax.

The joint commissions also voted Monday night to make the first $50,000 available for initial designs of a proposed $10 million water park.

The Dodge City Daily Globe reports ( ) the project is still a long way off. Monday's vote sends the project back to a sales tax project committee to work with city staff and a consultant on details for the park.

Dodge City Manager Cherise Tieben says if all goes as planned, the park could open in May 2016.
