Randy Yost, Hayes Airstrip, has a Conditional Use Permit for the airstrip, however, he would like to expand. Roger Fuller explained will have to apply for a new Conditional Use Permit and meet with the County Board of Adjustments & Appeals.
Office of Hearing Examiners heard an appeal case from Stanley County. The case was ruled in favor of Stanley County due to insufficient information.
Update on Courthouse Elevator Project: G&N Construction is moving along on the new elevator. There are a couple issues with the elevator, but will look into them and correct them. The floors and stairs should be finished by the end of this week. By contract, they are 60 days behind schedule. Issues they have encountered include the crumbling masonry wall, steel columns were installed; the elevator wasn’t delivered as scheduled, and work was halted when court was in session due to the noise. The Commissioners requested an itemized bill of labor and materials.
Oahe Marina – August 15 Celebration & Make-A-Wish Fundraiser: Steve Rounds, Oahe Marina, has planned a Community Celebration and Make-A-Wish Fundraiser. It will be Saturday, August 15, 2015, at Oahe Marina and Resort. They will have a smoked pork feed, beer garden, live music, auction, spearfishing tournament, National Guard’s inflatables and fireworks at dusk. They would like permission from the county to have a fireworks show, weather permitting. The Fort Pierre Fire Department has agreed to have two trucks there. It is a good time to celebrate the Oahe Dam and it is for a good cause, Make-A-Wish, which helps the local chapter.

Fort Pierre Fire Department – Cody Lengkeek – New Fire Hall-Station #2: After the July 7, 2015, Commissioner Meeting, Cody Lengkeek went to the board members in charge of the new fire station with the possibility of receiving Block 47 instead of Block 48. With discussion, research and viewing the lots available, they feel Block 24 would be ideal, with access to Highway 1806. With public safety in mind, and talk of the softball complex in the same area, the fire department would have to drive past the complex to get to the fire hall on Block 47.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to allow Fort Pierre Volunteer Fire Department to develop and build the new fire hall located at Block 24, Townsite of Stanley.

Stanley Post 20 American Legion – Reed Stoeser – Softball Complex: Since Fort Pierre has caught baseball fever again with the start of our very own 12-13 year old baseball team, the Legion would like to build more fields for more ages to use and enjoy. They plan to have fields for Pee-Wee, 13-14 year olds, so this year’s team can continue, and eventually have one for 15-19 year olds. They have plans drawn and would like to have the first field completed for the 2016 season.
Motion by Craig Heller, second by Dana Iversen, to approve the development of a softball complex, with parking, located at Blocks 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 46, 47 & 48, Townsite Stanley. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
