Kimball City Council Letter to our Residents

Residents of Kimball,

The City of Kimball is always working to improve the health, safety and welfare of its citizens and community. The City has recently hired an independent contractor to address the property maintenance issues of our community. These efforts will enhance the quality of life in Kimball by maintaining or increasing property values, providing a safe environment to live, work, and play and to encourage new families and businesses to choose Kimball as their home. Inspections in the community have begun and property owners will be contacted concerning any violations that exist on their property. The City will be asking for the cooperation of all property owners to correct any violations that exist on their properties in a reasonable time or provide a plan of action to the Code Enforcement Officer that is reasonable and one that will resolve the issues.

Kimball Area Foundation

In 2016, the Kimball Economic Development Corporation and a group of Kimball residents gathered to form the Kimball Area Foundation, one of 78 communities to have a Community Savings Account (CSA) with the South Dakota Community Foundation (SDCF). The Kimball Area Foundation accepted a challenge grant from SDCF to raise $100,000 by September 2018 for $25,000 from SDCF. To raise awareness regarding the local CSA challenge grant goal, the Kimball Economic Development board and its Director, Anita Holan, organized “Keeping it in Kimball” this past June and the event raised over $7,000. It event was a great start to raise awareness to reach the goal of their CSA but the area has a ways to go to reach their goal of a $100,000 endowment. The board is planning additional events this coming year. Donations to the Kimball Area Foundation will be invested along with other SDCF endowed funds. In the future, a percentage of the Kimball Area Foundation’s fund value will be made available for a local board of directors to distribute. As the fund grows so will the annual amount available to give back to nonprofit groups. The CSA is an SDCF endowment fund that is invested and through community support, will provide a perpetual funding source for nonprofits and charitable causes in the Kimball community.
