The Dickinson County Board of Supervisors heard a request on Tuesday for the county to sell 28.6 acres of county-owned land near a gravel pit near Lake Park to a group that wants to build a trap/sporting clay range on the site. Rick Kalsow is among those heading up the effort.
On Friday, October 13th, 2017, at approximately at 10:30pm, the Dickinson County Communications Center received a call from a female in Lake Park reporting a juvenile missing that had possibly fallen into Silver Lake in the area of the dam north of the Lake Park High School football field on 2nd Street.
Lake Park officers responded to the reporting party’s residence to take the initial information within a minute. The reporting party indicated that the juvenile male was said to be at the football game and at the dam near the football field, but the reporting party had not seen or heard from the juvenile male for approximately two hours.
A single vehicle crash Thursday southwest of Lake Park sent three people to the hospital.

As fall approaches we often turn to yard clean-up before the snow flies. Just a few reminders:
- Landscape waste/Grass/Leaves: DO NOT put this waste in the garbage bins or dumpsters. There is a drop off spot for waste located at the city shed. The disposal of waste, originating on the premises, by open burning is allowed.
- Burning: Burning shall only be allowed North of Railroad St on even numbered days and South of Railroad St. on odd numbered days. Recreational fires are allowed at any time.
- Tree Trimming: It is the responsibility of the property owner to keep trees overhanging the streets/alleys trimmed so that all branches will be at least 15ft above the street surface. Branches may be disposed of at the City Shed. Lengths no longer than 10ft would be greatly appreciated. To those of you who have taken care of this, THANK YOU!
- Weed growth above 10” on your property, unlicensed/inoperable vehicles, appliances, mattresses, furniture and junk are all items that need to be removed from your yard to avoid a nuisance warning. If you are unsure, call City Hall at 712-832-3527
