Cleanup has started!  Please keep kids and pets OUT of the road. There is a lot of large equipment moving and we would like to keep everyone safe.  The only way to enter town is by Cat's Convenience Store. DO NOT TRY TO COME IN ANY OTHER WAY. You will be required to check in.

If you have equipment you are bringing to town and would like to volunteer, please enter by Cat's and you will be given an equipment card. From there, you will be required to come to City Hall Community Center to check in with your name, phone number, and type of equipment. Equipment can be staged at the empty Elevator lot on the SW side of town.  The plan is to start on Main St and work our way North and South.

We have had a lot of power related questions. Ottertail is bringing in a crew TOMORROW, Saturday May 14th and they will be repairing all the lines. For now, do not use generators if possible. We want to ensure there is fuel for any volunteer and Fire Department Vehicles. Again, please keep the roads clear and keep your children and pets away from any trucks. This ensures fast repairs and avoids any injuries.

Donations can be brought to City Hall as well. There will also be a donation fund set up with the Castlewood Community Foundation to help cover any storm related costs. Checks/Cash can be brought to City Hall or given to Breanna Beebe or Lois Junker Wiarda.

The City Dump will only be open to those working and volunteering. There will be a signup sheet for that as well. When cutting down trees, please do NOT remove tree stumps at this time so we can avoid hitting any gas or power lines. Cut at the stump only!! Debris should be separated into town piles: trees and building materials. Please place them on the edge of your property for easy clean up.

There will be someone in the City Office periodically throughout the day coordinating services but please be aware that answering messages and calls will be difficult at this time. Please come down to City Hall and see Cassidy Rae Borer or Brian Ries if you have immediate questions.
