City announces final citywide grass collection on Wednesday

HURON — As part of a brief Huron City Commission meeting Monday evening, Huron mayor Gary Harrington announced that the final grass collection of the year will be Wednesday, Dec. 1.

Trucks will run throughout the city, but will not be sent back out, so green bins should be out Tuesday evening. This is for all Huron residents, regardless of normal trash/recycling pick up day.

In other items, assistant city engineer Dennis Bennett presented an agreement to the commission to work with DGR Engineering to access potential ARPA funding at an hourly rate for a total not to exceed $7,000. This was approved.

City attorney Tucker Volesky presented the first reading of Ordinance No. 2233-3-92, which adds Juneteenth as a holiday for city employees and adjusts holiday hours accordingly. The second reading of the ordinance is set for Dec. 8.

Commissioners reviewed a request from IT Specialist Chad Borgan to change the current antivirus provider to a hosted solution through the Center for Internet Security. The cost is an additional $3,300 over the current provider, but it does allow for additional protection for the city. This was approved.

Commissioners also:

  • Approved a special on-sale alcoholic beverage license filed by Top Floor Events for a Chamber Mixer on December 14 at American Bank and Trust, 1820 Dakota Avenue South.
  • Approved a wage correction for Glenda Maxted.
  • Removed Carli Keep from the Community Improvement Community and added Tom Brantner to the committee.
