Township supervisors request snow removal help

Posted

The Spring Lake township board would respectfully request an agreement similar to the one the City of De Smet has with the County Highway Department. We have approximately 250’ feet of township road that connects to the county road that we have requested the County highway department to remove snow for us but were told by Mr. Sorenson that this was not possible and “Would never happen” because why should the county residents help with Spring Lake township expenses? The reason this is such an expensive burden is because our blade man must drive empty for three miles one way to clear 250 feet for the residents of our township. The county goes right by this road and would take less than five minutes to clear it. With government cooperation that is happening with the city and the county, this seems like another very good example of that cooperation that should happen. Thank you in advance for your consideration in this matter.
