Yankton County Historical Preservation Commission

Wednesday, July 23, 2014

At their first meeting yesterday, members of the Yankton County Historical Preservation Commission selected Bernie Hunhoff to serve as Chairman. Hunhoff says in order to generate funds for the Mead Building renovation project the commission intends to ask the Yankton County Commission to place a five cent per thousand mil levy on the November election ballot for the approval of local voters. Hunhoff says since the scope of the newly formed historical preservation commission is not limited to only the Mead Building project, the input of the public is needed to help determine what other projects in the local area should be supported. It has been estimated that, if passed the five cent per thousand mil levy would generate a little more than fifty thousand dollars annually which would be used for the Mead Building Renovation Project and maintenance costs into the future.

Vermillion Bypass Roadwork

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Motorists in the Vermillion area will be impacted for the next several days by a chip and seal project on Highway 50 at the Vermillion truck bypass. South Dakota Department of Transportation Engineer Ron Peterson says the chip seal process involves laying down a coating of oil covered by gravel that is intended to extend the life of the roadway. Loose gravel will be present for a period of 36 to 72 hours after each chip seal application and Peterson says on all two-lane highways, traffic will be reduced to one lane and guided through the project with the use of flaggers and a pilot car causing a possible delay of up to fifteen minutes while travelling through the work area during daytime hours. Peterson says weather permitting the chip seal project should be completed by this weekend.
