The city of Presho will hold a city election Tuesday, April 14th to elect a mayor and one council member from WARD III.
Current mayor Mike Sprenger and Allen Heiman have both filed nominating petitions for the office of Mayor, which is a 2-year term.
In Ward III current councilman Cody Volmer did not file but two new comers Lance Mortenson and Teresa Hanson have both filed for the one 2-year term up for election.
In Ward I only the current officer holders Bill Lengkeek and Roy England filed petitions and in Ward II only Tony Urban filed a petition for one of the 2-year terms up for election. Current councilman Barrott Lillebo did not file. The council will have to appoint someone to fill the vacancy in Ward II until the next election in 2016.
Three candidates have filed for two positions up for election on the Kennebec town board which will require Kennebec to hold a city election on April 14th also.
Michelle Langenbau, Kristen Thomas and Rod Bowar are running for the two vacancies on the Kennebec Town Board. Reliance will not have a city election as Brandon Bacon was the only person to file for the one seat on the town board up for election this spring.

The dry fertilizer storage building is currently being built. It will be constructed of concerte columns and wood panels.

Wheat Growers released a drawing of the proposed site layout Friday which shows the proposed location of the railroad siding, circular track, the elevator, the dry fertilizer plant
and Agronomy Center. The site will be accessed from several locations along Hwy 273.
