PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Harrold area residents are invited to a meeting next week that will offer information on how the proposed pulse crop processing facility will impact the community. A public meeting will be held Wednesday, May 8 at the Harrold School-starting at 7:00 p.m. A press release from the Pierre Economic Development Corporation says that board members from South Dakota Pulse Processors LLC and a representative of PEDCO will provide an overview on the project and answer attendees’ questions. PEDCO plans to buy five acres of land and construct an 11,000 square foot building on the west edge of Harrold that it will lease to SD Pulse Processors. Once constructed, the plant will take in pulse crops from area producers; process and package the crops and ship the product via truck and rail. Plans call for hiring 12 workers to start and additional line shifts could be added in the future. PEDCO plans to pursue a zoning change through Hughes County later this month and construction is expected to start in June. Pulse Processors has been working to gather the funding needed to go forward with the plant and reached its goal last month. Harrold residents with questions on the project can contact Brian Minish of SD Pulse Processors at 605-366-2373.
