City approves bid date for 2024 milling and overlay


HURON – In a brief meeting Monday evening, the Huron City Commission approved going to bid with a bid opening on Feb. 20 for the 2024 street milling and overlay project.

Assistant City Engineer Dennis Bennett noted that the total budget for the project in 2024 is $1,026,750.

Commissioner Rich Bragg questioned Bennett about the parking lot of the Huron Congregational Church being part of the plan, and Bennett expressed that two churches in the city have an agreement to be part of the milling and overlay schedule due to their parking lots being utilized for city parking on non-service days.

During public forum, Commissioner Drew Weinreis encouraged Huron residents to participate in the “burger battle” from Feb. 1-29, sponsored by Huron Connect and Huron Community Improvement Committee. Eight businesses have signed up to participate.

Commissioners also:
• Approved the full-time status of Arnold Case, solid waste maintenance I.

• Approved a raffle for the Huron MS Society on Feb. 6 at the Red Arrow Bar.
• Approved a correction to the rates resolution, section six referring to garbage collection rates on dumpsters.

The next commission meeting will be Monday, Feb. 5, in the commission room at City Hall.
