NOW HIRING:  Seasonal Part-Time Mower & Lifeguards - See City Jobs page

Voicemails will be returned once the office reopens.  Emails to Montrose@goldenwest.net will be monitored and likely returned sooner, as time permits.

emergencyTextSignupIf you would like to receive emergency text alerts from the City of Montrose, please send the following information to Montrose@goldenwest.net or stop in the City Office:

I give the City of Montrose permission to send me text messages. 
Your name:
Your Cell Phone Number:
Your Cell Phone Provider (ie, Verizon, TMobile, etc):
Ward Number: 


If you live north of Walker Street, you are in Ward 1; If you live south of Walker Street, you are in Ward 2. If you live outside city limits but still want a notification, write Group 3. This might come in handy if there's an alert that only needs to go to one part of town. It might also keep these emailed texts from getting flagged as spam...

The email address these alerts will come from is Montrosealert@goldenwest.net. It will be unmonitored, so any replies will not be received. I certainly hope this is never needed, or only used very rarely. But I think it's better to be prepared...

Montrose is a small South Dakota community of approximately 480 people located along the banks of the Vermillion River.  The town offers a seasonal campground and pool. The downtown offers Security State Bank, Post Office, Raggedy Ann's furniture and decor, CJ's at the Wellington restaurant, The Office Bar, and the Montrose Gas Plus convenience store.  Montrose also offers a Public School for grades K-12, as well as City Daycare, which provides preschool classes.  It is home to 3 churches: St Patrick's Catholic Church, St John's Lutheran and Montrose United Methodist.  Come visit us or check us out as a place to reside. We're just a short commute east to Sioux Falls, or west to Mitchell.
