Remove illegal hay bales from the right-of-way

The South Dakota Department of Transportation reminds landowners that hay remaining in highway ditches after Oct. 1 is deemed illegal.

Any person wishing to claim ownership of illegal bales must obtain a permit from the South Dakota Department of Transportation. Those permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis and allow permit holders to take ownership of any illegal hay bales.

Permits are available at DOT area offices in the following communities: Aberdeen, Belle Fourche, Custer, Huron, Mitchell, Mobridge, Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Watertown, Winner, and Yankton.

The Department of Transportation will remove or authorize the removal of any hay bales remaining in the public right-of-way after Oct. 31.
