The Valentine City Council took care of mostly routine matters at a short regular meeting on Thursday, May 11th.
The main topic of discussion centered around Free Dump Days and the several hundred city code violations that have been noted around Valentine. Three full days of free dump days have been set for June 9, 10 and 11 from 9 am to 6 pm each day. Normal rules for the three days include no household waste and items must be separated before being accepted. Items accepted include furniture and carpet, scrap metal, scrap lumber, tree limbs, yard waste, concrete and bricks, and appliances. Following the clean up, city code violations will be more strictly enforced with tickets and fines possible.
In other news, the location change for Bolo Beer Company was approved. The closing of 3rd Street from Main to Ray Streets on June 3rd for the Valentine Classic Car Club’s show was also approved. The request for signage near 7th and Main Street was tabled.
