Budget: Nancy Schlichenmayer is with The Right Turn. Nancy explained that the demographics have changed with COVID, so they offer more classes and programs on-line. The Right Turn has more people enrolled in the GED Program and work enforcement classes. Nancy informed the Commission that The Right Turn has been in existence for 47 years, since 1974, and has been providing education, career development, job readiness preparation and workforce development training. As a Capital Area United Way participating agency and nonprofit organization, The Right Turn is funded primarily through grants and donations. Nancy explained that The Right Turn’s mission is to support the individuals and communities in south central South Dakota by providing a variety of educational opportunities and resources. Nancy thanked the Commission for their time and consideration of a donation.

David Reiss is the Executive Director of Central South Dakota Enhancement District. David explained to the Commission that this year they have seen an increase in operating expenses. CSDED is working with Stanley County on the Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan. CSDED also worked with Stanley County on the FEMA/Moore Project, and the CARES Act. CSDED is also working with the City of Fort Pierre with the water tower and water treatment plant project, and the new firehall project.

SD DOT Highway Safety Signing & Delineation Project: Todd Mortenson and Mike Norman voiced their opinions regarding all the new signs. They both have property in the northwest section of Stanley County. They feel there is an over abundance of signs being put up all over. Too many signs, they are a nuisance and an eye sore. Todd and Mike counted 100 signs within 6 miles.

The SDDOT safety vision statement is “Every Life Counts: Partnering to Save Lives”.  SDDOT partners with Federal Highway Administration to utilize Federal 164 Safety Program Funding for providing traffic engineering services to local governments as well as paying for signing improvement materials.

Fairgrounds: Scott Deal informed the Commission that the SD State High School Rodeo went very well, only a few glitches. The 4th of July Rodeo went very well, a lot of people came out to watch.

Project Fence: Scott Deal explained that a project fence is 6’x10’ panels, used to direct foot traffic better, in a safer way, around the fairgrounds.

Pickup: Scott Deal would like to have a bigger, descent pickup to pull trailers, bleachers and panel trailers. Right now he uses his person pickup.

Loader: Scott Deal borrowed a 1982 or 1983 Cat 930 Loader with forks to use around the fairgrounds. It works well with moving panels, gates and clean up. Scott would like to purchase this loader.

Iron for Panels: Scott Deal stated that he and Joe Cline have made panels with all the iron that was purchased and would like to get more iron to make more panels. The Commission would like prices.

Full Time Maintenance Employee:  Scott Deal would like to hire Marvin ‘Joe’ Cline full time. Joe was hired as a seasonal, but he has proven to be a positive asset at the fairgrounds. He can fix, weld anything, so far. He is a hard worker, dependable and it’s nice to have someone else around to help with the heavy, bigger projects.

Highway Department:  Lee Smith presented to the Commissioners a report of work performed by the Highway Department for the month of July 2021, which consists of clean out cattle guard and replace culvert on Ray McQuistion Road, replace culvert on Hayes Road and Sansarc Road, hauling gravel, blading, fill cuts & washouts and remove trees and shrubs on Bad River Road, fill cuts and washouts on War Creek Road and working on equipment.

County Shop Lighting: Lee Smith informed the Commission that the County Shop needs new, brighter lights. Bright Energy Solutions has a rebate program. Representatives did a walk through and gave Lee some options.

Plum Creek Bridge Update: Lee Smith presented the Commission with the plans of Plum Creek Bridge Project. Lee explained the controlled density fill to be placed in void beneath backwall, drainage fabric and riprap placement.

Waste Tire Disposal: The State has a program for entities to set up waste tire disposal sites. Stanley County does not wish to participate in this program.
