They need more space for training and would like to use the grandstands at the fairgrounds. Fort Pierre and Pierre Fire Departments are working together with Rapid Intervention Training. They would like to do some rescue simulations in the bucking chutes also. They would not do any training at the fairgrounds if there are events going on.

 

Courthouse – Ricky Sass – Broom for Bobcat: Ricky Sass received two price proposals for a broom for the Bobcat. A broom would work better removing snow from the sidewalks around the courthouse. The highway department could use it also for sweeping the bridges. The Commissioners would like more information, is our Bobcat set up for a broom? This is tabled until January 5, 2016 meeting.

 

Highway Department – Lee Smith: Lee Smith received three different price proposals for loader forks. The differences are new, used, length and thickness. Loader forks would be used for different projects, tree removal, culvert placement, etc.

With the snow storm during the Christmas weekend, Lee Smith and Foreman Tom Richardson called in their crew to plow the roads on Sunday, December 27, 2015. Because the highway department was called in on Sunday, Lee would like for the crew to be paid as overtime.

 

The Blue Ford Trucks are 1990’s and the repair bills keep adding up just to keep them running. Lee would like to try to find another good used end-dump, possibly one with a sander.

Lee has talked with C. Alleman and Norman’s about gravel from their land. Gravel has been tested from both places and the results are good. Lee would like to talk price before they go any farther.

 

The highway department fixed the roof on the Cutter barn at the fairgrounds, and, weather permitting, will fix the fence around the race track.

 

There are still vehicles, campers and trailers parked at the fairgrounds from this fall when the city streets were under construction. Need to have the city contact the owners to have them removed.

 

Motion by Dana Iversen, second by Dennis Booth, to approve operating transfer from General to Road & Bridge in the amount of $200,000.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
