The Pole Bending Clinic held in March went well and Scott has set four more clinics from that event. The bull riding clinic went well also. The fairgrounds is ready for the horse racers, the inside rail is up. The new section of bleachers was delivered last Wednesday. Scott will remove the old bleachers, get the new bleachers put together and set in place as soon as the weather permits.
Grandstand Concession Area Update – The electrical is almost complete, waiting on appliances, and the walk-in-cooler should be in this month, Scott will inspect it to make sure it will work for all that it is needed for. The Fort Pierre Development Corporation is offering a Fix Up, Clean Up, Paint Up Grant; Scott would like to apply for this Grant to help with the updates being done.
Parking Lot – The parking lot in front of the Grandstand needs to be fixed. The City of Fort Pierre is going to be fixing a few streets, the Auditor will find out if the County can piggy-back on their bid. The drainage problem between the south doors of the Grandstand and the paddock area needs to be fixed.
Highway Department: Auditor Burtch informed the Commissioners that it is time to do the second Mag treatment on the first mile of Bad River Road. And because the treatment is working the way we had hoped, Highway Superintendent Lee Smith would like Z&S Dust Control to continue the treatment to the bridge.
County Access Trail – Gun Smoke Farms would like to limit traffic north on 268th Avenue. The discussion is to add a gate, the County needs to do some spot gravel and we need to make sure there is public access to Meers Cemetery.
Haul Road Agreement – Auditor Burtch presented the Commissioners with an example of another county’s haul road agreement. Highway Superintendent Lee Smith would like the Commissioner to consider the same standard to help the county maintain the roads from gravel haulers in and out the gravel pits.
