County Board of Equalization Meeting is set for Tuesday April 23, 2019, at 5:00 P.M. CT

SD Game Fish & Parks – Animal Damage Control Report:  Brad Janecke is the local State trapper. South Dakota has a very diverse landscape and land-use varies across the state. Wildlife damage specialists, seasonal staff and many other GFP staff provide the “boots-on-the-ground’ delivery of the Wildlife Damage Management program services. The staff work directly with livestock and agricultural producers to alleviate or reduce livestock loss from predators.

In 1939, by state law, GFP operated only the Animal Damage Control program. In 1974 the program was more formalized by the South Dakota Legislature. This legislation established the program and funding which allowed GFP to employ personnel to control coyotes, fox, prairie dogs, beavers and other wild animals. GFP also operates an aerial predator control program to control coyotes and fox.

Central South Dakota Enhancement District: David Reiss is the new Director. CSDED is working on the hazard mitigation project for the County on SD Highway 1806. The State OEM approved the project and it is being reviewed by FEMA. David has not heard any time frame.

CSDED is also working on the county’s GIS for the Director of Equalization office. David is hopeful that it will be completed this year.

Discussion: Shane Kramme informed the Commission that the Verendrye Benevolent Association voted not to have horse races for 2019. With the short time frame of the State’s funding decision and the amount of snow still on the track, it was a tough decision. Shane stated that he’s not sure what the future will hold. Shane thanked the Commission for the County’s continued support for the last 70 years. Scott Deal, Fairgrounds Manager stated that he informed some of the trainers that stalling and the Schomer Barn is available for training, however, they cannot run on the track.

Fairgrounds: Panels – Motion by Craig Heller, second by Sonny Harrowa, to approve purchase of Priefert panels, not to exceed $21,000.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.

Parking Lot – Motion by Craig Heller, second by Sonny Harrowa, to bid Fairgrounds Parking Lot. Sealed bids will be opened April 23, 2019. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.

Highway Department:  Lee Smith informed the Commission that he would like to have new dual-wall fuel tanks placed at the new county shop. Commissioner Dennis Booth recused himself from the conversation. After discussion, Lee will request bids for dual-wall fuel tanks, a containment wall and pad for the fuel tanks.

 

SDDOT LTAP – Soil Stabilization: Gil Hedman, with SDDOT LTAP, feels the soil stabilization process will improve Cut Across Road. The Base 1 product will tighten the soil, increase the strength of the base, provide stability in material, help prevent gravel loss, wash boarding and pot holes. Time and money spent for maintenance will decrease.

The Commission tabled this subject until the County receives the final cost.

Agtegra Coop Road Landing Permit Request: Tabled until Commission receives more information.

Disaster Spring Flooding Resolution 2019-08: Rob Fines, Emergency Manager, informed the Commission that Stanley County has to have $13,000 in flood disaster expenses to qualify for State and Federal Disaster Funding. The documents have to include roads, culverts, fence, wages and any sandbag hours, just to list a few.

Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to approve Disaster Flooding Resolution 2019-08. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.

STANLEY COUNTY RESOLUTION NO. 2019-08

RESOLUTION DECLARING A DISASTER

Spring Flooding, 2019

 

WHEREAS Stanley County, South Dakota suffered from a record setting blizzard on March 13th and 14th, resulting in significant snowpack, blocked roads and other snow impacts; and

 

WHEREAS Stanley County sustained severe damage due to spring flooding starting March 18, 2019 which flooded county roads, washed out culverts, damaged bridges, damaged city roads and infrastructure; and

 

WHEREAS Stanley County and area water and utility companies and power cooperatives, specifically Oahe Electric, have committed all available resources and taken all possible actions to alleviate the existing emergency; and

 

WHEREAS the total costs for flooding repair are not yet fully known but estimated to be extreme and local resources are not adequate to cope with the situation; and

 

WHEREAS the resulting damage and destruction endangered and threatened the health, safety, and welfare of the public and the financial stability of the local governing units and the utility companies and power cooperatives generally; now therefore,

 

BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Stanley County Commissioners does hereby declare a spring flooding disaster emergency and respectfully requests the Governor of the State of South Dakota to declare Stanley County a Disaster area and to request a Presidential Declaration of Disaster in order that assistance from state and federal agencies may be made available to Stanley County, West Central Electric, Rural Water and other utility companies, residents and communities affected.
