The Presho Area Chamber will hold a fall city-wide clean up day in Presho Saturday, Sept. 26.
"The spring clean up has been very successful in the past," Nicole Husman, chamber director said. "We hope people will take pride in their property and take advantage of the clean up day."
The rubble site will be open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and extra fees will be waved that day for any acceptable rubble.
Presho area volunteers will gather at 10:00 AM in front of the Thrift Store to assist elderly and disabled residents of Presho with clean-up.
If you need assistance or have items to dispose of but no way of hauling, contact the Presho Area Chamber office at 895-9445.
Mayor Mike Sprenger reminds residents that only acceptable rubble site items such as grass clippings, leaves, tree branches, and scrap lumber and untreated, burnable wood with nails and glass removed can be taken to the rubble site.
White goods such as appliances, hot water heaters and other scrap metal will be taken but all freon must be removed and the item tagged with an appropriate affidavit.
Items not accepted include household garbage, plastic, tires, batteries, waste oil and other hazardous waste.
It is important that residents adhere to the rubble site rules and regulations. If city residents have any questions regarding disposal of waste, contact the Presho city finance office for clarification.

Heavy rail that was stocked piled in various locations along the MRC line is being ‘pedaled out’ by crewmen from RailWorks Tracks Systems and laid next to the track in preparation for installing the new rail. "That’s how they refer to distributing rail out along the main line," said Chris Brosz, project engineer with Civil Design, Inc. The rail pictured above is near the railroad crossing on the east side of Reliance. According to Brosz, eventually the steel plates and joint bar will be moved out along the line also. Rail installation was to start in the spring of 2016 but Brosz said with so much of the material arriving on site already, crews could begin installing rail this fall, starting at Reliance and moving west, as bridge and crossing work continues between Chamberlain and Reliance.

Following Monday night’s special meeting, the Presho City Council voted to re-bid the city’s on/off sale liquor license and lease on the City Bar building by a vote of four to one. The motion made by Bill Lengkeek was to re-bid with two options, one being the license and leasing the building, and the other just the license with intent to move to another location. The motion received a second from Lillebo. With the exception of a missing council member from WARD II, the full council was in attendance and the only opposing vote came from council woman Angela Ehlers.
