The city council along with volunteers hosted a second cleanup day. This time construction rubble and metal items were picked up. The limitations for the types of items that we can pick up is determined by the Marion rubble site rules. (see https://marionsd.com/rubblesite)

It was a successful day again with the use of 3 dump trucks and a tractor with a grappler claw. Thanks to all who helped and for the equipment brought.

Ellen Buskohl approached the city council last year with a proposal to redo the landscaping around the community center. With a lot of effort on her part and her peers, the project is showing completion. First she removed the old rock garden and battled the weeds and volunteer trees. Then with funding provided by the 125th Committee a concrete curb was laid around both the community hall and the fire hall. Then an industrial strength underlay was placed and the old rocks were washed and relaid. The hard work shows a lot of community pride and dedication to making our town a nice place to live. Thank You Ellen and your peers for your efforts and a big thanks to the 125th Committee for paying the $1700 invoice for the curb.

Our town has a new look. Not only have the leaves changed but so have the roads too. We finally got a long overdue resurface of most of our town roads. We have gone from a black and white look to an all red surface.

We don’t plan on letting the roads get this neglected again! Since 2016 money has been set aside for the roads and this will continue.

I would like to thank all of the volunteers over the past 5 years who worked on patching these roads and keeping the potholes to a minimum. It is my hope that this new surface will reduce the work needed in the upcoming spring months.

Several volunteers joined in this past Saturday for a tree and branch cleanup day. We used the city dump truck, Ben Beil’s dump truck and Gene Berg’s dump truck. Nate Buskohl loaded the trucks with his family’s tractor that had a hydraulic grabber. It was amazing to see this thing pick up an entire pine tree and drop it into a dump truck. Each truck made 3 trips to the Marion dump for unloading. Big thanks to all of the volunteers who helped.
