Stump removal next step in Sioux Falls cleanup

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- The next step in a massive cleanup effort in Sioux Falls following a three-day ice and snow storm in April will involve removing tree stumps from boulevards.

The city through its "Operation Timber Strike" program cut down nearly 1,000 damaged trees on boulevards following the storm. Starting in September, crews will begin removing the tree stumps.

The cost is estimated at about $150,000. Earlier storm cleanup efforts are estimated at about $9 million.
