Presho seeks grants for sewer project
 
  Angela Eves/LCH
   A representative of District III Planning and Development, Eric Ambroson, presented multiple financing options to the city council at their regular board meeting held Monday, Nov. 6 to help fund a sewer and water project. Ambroson presented multiple scenarios to the board and outlined a time table for the application process for grants and loans. 
   The city is currently looking at funding the project through sources such as the DOT Community Access Program, DENR, USDA Rural Development Program, and the Community Development block grant program. The city applied for a $400,000 grant back in July from the DOT Community Access Program, and the council is expecting to hear back within a couple weeks on whether that application was approved. Also, an application for a loan from the Department of Energy and Natural Resources (DENR) will be put together in December and submitted.  
   While the council hopes to cover most of the expense of the new sewer and storm drain cost with grant money, the city will need to obtain loans in order to cover the total estimated expense of the $2 million dollar project.  
   Nicole Husman, chamber director, reported to the council that half of the Rooster Rush shirts have been sold. Sales will continue on the shirts through the hunting season. Thurs., Nov. 30 will be the Presho Holiday Open House. The chamber will again draw for winners from names submitted at chamber member businesses for a turkey and $25 chamber bucks each Monday till Christmas. Husman also reported that there was a good turn out at the Trunk or Treat event Oct. 30.
   Mayor Mike Sprenger reported that Mike Olson, code enforcer, has five abate notices that he still needs to follow up with. Sprenger stated that Olson had made a comment about Presho being one of the best towns he has worked with. Sprenger stated that residents have complied well with the notices and the process went smooth. The council plans to have Olson back in the spring to look at other nuisance violations.  
   Roy England gave the council an update on the Dakota Mill and Grain project. Dakota Mill and Grain had submitted a proposal to the FAA to allow them to build a grain bin at the future railroad car loading terminal. Dakota Mill is working with senators and the FAA in order to have the application approved. The time frame for this approval is expected to last approximately 30-60 days. Construction on the site is continuing as planned at this time.  
   The first reading of Ordinance #1-2017 to established a new sewer rate of $30 was read by the council. This is an increase from the current cost of $23. This will help the city cover the cost of maintenance and upkeep of the sewer system. The board will vote on this increase at their next monthly meeting.  
   Council members also discussed the school’s request to close Birch Avenue between Second and Third Street for a building project. The board determined that prior to making any decision or discussing the issue the school would need to file a petition with the city. At that time, the city would hold a public hearing to help determine the final decision. 
   In other business, the city approved the following:
Approved liquor license renewal for Hutch’s Cafe – on sale
Approved liquor license renewal for Jet Lanes – on and off sale
Approved liquor license renewal for Prairie Post – on and off sale
