Hi Folks,

  • Congratulations to the Valley City Hi-Liner Tennis Team, 2024 State Team Champions!  Considering our small school talent pool compared to the large metropolitan talent pools, this is a HUGE accomplishment.  To the Hi-Liner players and coaches, “Way to go, you are to be proud”.
  • With more lawn mowing occurring, please minimize grass being blown on the streets.  The grass screws up the storm sewers and grass on the street is slippery causing kids on bikes to slip and fall.  Please help.
  • Pedestrians & bikers PLEASE wear bright clothing and face traffic when walking or jogging ….. distracted drivers are everywhere, keep them in your sight. 
  • From the MRES Board Meeting last Thursday, favorable updates on the Watertown Power Plant Project (reliable power) and the Brookings Solar Project (renewable power source) were heard.
  • City County Health Department and the Valley City Police Department partnered to purchase “Safe Wrap”.  Safe Wrap is a restraining device that is utilized safely with little or no pain to the detainee.  Thank you.
