The City of Chamberlain’s new development project for the Priebe land was discussed at the Brule County commission meeting held February 18. City Engineer Greg Powell and Engineer Jeff Williamson met with the board to ask permission to install water and sewer in and along the 2500 feet portion of Sunset Road that is owned by the county. The city’s plans are to extend Sunset Road west from the AmericInn/Ace Hardware intersection to Byron Blvd., south of the hospital. The sewer lines will run under the road and the water lines will be installed ten feet from the sewer line, alternating sides in order to avoid the Aurora Brule Rural Water lines. According to Powell, the development is an approximately $5 million dollar project for the city that will open up a new residential/commercial subdivision. Bids have been let for the infrastructure and construction of a gravel road which will be upgraded to a hard surface at a later date. Powell explained that a lift station will not be required, as the utilities will gravity flow back to the connection at AmericInn. Commissioners approved granting the right-of-way easement to the city as requested.
