polling location used for the

June 2nd Primary Election.

There is no need for a city election on June 16. And no absentee ballots will be sent out for the city election that had been scheduled for June 16.  


Considering how long school may be out of session and everyone is urged to limit contact with other people, the City Office will continue to be closed to any walk-ins until further notice.

To better balance working from home and caring for my children, the hours in which I can be contacted via phone call have been shortened to Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9 am to 12 pm. Please call 605-363-5065 during these hours.

Emails to Montrose@goldenwest.net are preferred and will be returned as soon as possible.

Please call or email if you have any questions or need to make utility payments in cash. Appointments will be set up as necessary.

For maintenance or emergency issues, please contact Daryl at 605-370-1240.

Remember - Even though the following items should already never be flushed down toilets, now is a good time to remind you to not flush these items down your toilet. These items include: paper towels, facial tissues, baby wipes, “flushable” wipes, rags and other similar items. Because items like these do not break down like toilet paper, they may cause sewer back up in your house and lift station malfunctioning, which in turn can cause additional public health hazards.

Because this is a situation none of us have ever dealt with before, plans may change as necessary. Thank you for your flexibility, patience and understanding.

Have questions about FEMA/flood relief?  When in doubt call 1-800-621-3362. They will help walk you through the process.
