Vehicle in Jim River

Vehicle in Jim River

          The Yankton County Commission considered how to remove an uninsured vehicle that has been in the Jim River since Riverboat Days.

          Paul Scherschligt, Yankton County Emergency Management Director, talks about the situation in Mission Hill Township…

          The vehicle in question destroyed some signs on a township road when it crashed into the river, requiring replacement of the signage, as well.

          Scherschligt talks about some of the problems about who is the responsible entity at this location…

          The James River Water Development District has already pledged to reimburse the County for half of the cost of this vehicle recovery.

          The Commission voted to have a professional towing company hired for the recovery at a cost of $3,750, with the vehicle being held until the owner of the vehicle reimburses the County for the cost.
