After three days of free dump days in Valentine, a reminder that the city will now become more aggressive on nuisance complaints in the city limits. Residents were given the opportunity this past Friday through Sunday to dispose of items at NK Waste Management in Valentine, where approximately 600 loads were brought in. The city police will possibly start issuing tickets to those who do not comply with cleaning up properties. The city office has sent letters to some property owners and additional letters may be sent. It is the hope of the city that residents will voluntarily clean up properties without legal involvement from the city or police.
