The bid to renovate the Mitchell Career and Technical Education Academy is almost as much as the budget for the project itself, meaning the school will likely need to re-bid the project. That's the recommendation given to the Mitchell Board of Education, which will act on the agenda item tonight at 5 p.m., during a regular meeting at the MCTEA building. Superintendent Joe Graves is recommending the school reject the lone bid and table all other bids. The lone general construction bid came from Sunkota at a total price of $735,000.

The city of Mitchell would like to remind citizens to check their sump pumps to make sure that they are working properly. It is recommended that sump pumps be drained to the curb. If possible, do not drain water in the backyard so you or your neighbor does not have to recycle the ground water. Do not drain sump pumps into floor drains or into the sanitary sewer system. This may cause the sanitary sewer system to back up on you or your neighbors. -Source: Mitchell Department of Public Works
