A Minneapolis company was awarded the contract for the yard debris removal. Rapid City Public Works Director Terry Wolterstorff says crews are working seven days a week, and the operation is expected to continue until Christmas.

He says some of the work won't be eligible for federal aid, but officials believe it's a service that needs to be provided.
