They are also hoping to have the telegraph working to communicate with the Deadwood and Redfield Train Depots. The log cabin has been painted and they are putting in a Grant request to move the utilities upstairs from the basement. The museum is open. Some of the clothing has smoke damage, so they are trying to get help to get them cleaned. The building also needs better ventilation for all the archives.

Instead of calling a special meeting, or waiting for the regular meeting, it will be automatic per National Weather Service when the Fire Danger Index is Very High or Extreme category, or a Red Flag Warning is put in place. The Commission would like to have this ordinance in place. Rob will check with Fort Pierre Fire Department and work with them.
