Fiscal year 2012-2013 they made 221 trips with 385 veterans riding; Fiscal year 2014-2015 they made 132 trips with 492 veterans riding.

 

Gary Grittner – Thank you from the ‘Bring It Home” Committee. Update of the Depot: Gary Grittner thanked the Commissioners and the Highway Department for the load of gravel for the parking area at the Depot. They had a ‘soft’ opening during the All-School Reunion with a lot of positive comments. There is still work being done, it isn’t ADA compliant yet, so it isn’t guide ready yet. Gary also thanked the court services for the helpers who hauled and laid all the brick walk-way. It looks nice and adds to the history.

 

Deb Schiefelbein – Update on the Log Cabin: The Log Cabin and the Sansarc School have been painted, the wagon has been stained, the trees are cleaned up and the grass is looking good.

The Log Cabin, school and the jail were open during the All-School Reunion and they received a lot of positive feed-back.

They would like another application on the lawn, and the log cabin has had water in the basement from the recent rains. They have been pumping 15-20 gallons of water out every day since June 6. Either another sump-pump needs to be installed, a concrete valley gutter or a curb and gutter needs to be put along the elementary schools’ new parking lot.

Another project of Debs’ is Cedar Hill Cemetery. It is getting cleaned up and being taken care of. It too is looking nice.

Deb thanked the Commissioners for their continued support.

Bob Stoeser – Section Line: Bob Stoeser would like to have a Section Line closed. Section Line 33 is a one (1) mile road built by Leon Haskins years ago. The owners on either side uses it for their own farming use. All the property owners surrounding it would like it to be closed to the public, this road does not go anywhere except a field.

After a petition is filed in the Auditors office, a public hearing will be set and held. The board will then determine if the public interest will be better served by such proposal.

Leimbach Development & VIB Enterprises – Drainage: The properties have been surveyed. The survey shows the property line has moved from all the water and mud run off.

The Commissioners are all in agreeance that the neighbor’s property is encroaching onto Leimbach Development and VIB Enterprises property. The natural flow of water has been blocked by man-made devices, therefore, nature has moved the hill onto the neighbors land.

 

Emergency Management & Disaster – Rob Fines: The wind storm that came through the area on June 22, 2015, left a trail of damage countywide. Due to the fact that it affected multiple counties in South Dakota, it is suggested that each county declare their county a disaster to try to receive assistance from FEMA.

Motion by Dana Iversen, second by Sonny Harrowa, to approve Resolution 2015-09, Declaring Stanley County a Disaster. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.

Since counties and other local jurisdictions are prohibited from taxing Federal lands, annual PILT payments help to defray costs associated with maintaining services that support these lands within their boundaries.
