Chamberlain City Commission –
Feltman explains request, Huffs address council in regards to haz-mat issues
By Janet L. Petrak
Doug Feltman spoke to members of the Chamberlain City Commission on Monday, Aug. 17, on the process to establish Chamberlain as a Purple Heart City.
The group met in the council chambers of the city offices in Chamberlain.
Feltman said there is a program where a request is made to become a Purple Heart City by a city, county or business in which they will furnish the signs for them. How it works is the city would write a resolution/proclamation making Chamberlain a Purple Heart City. When the resolution is completed, a copy is sent to Ken Teunissen, commander of the Military Order of the Purple Heart region. It takes approximately ten working days to get the signs made. After the signs arrive, Teunissen would be put on the city’s agenda for the adoption of the resolution and distribution of the signs. The Department of Transportation would be contacted to erect the signs which would be four total as more than one state highway route enters Chamberlain. This is at no cost to the city unless they would want more signs somewhere else.
