Emergency Management – Rob Fines: Rob Fines reported that the 2016 Emergency Management Agreement does not have any changes from 2015. We did well with Grants in 2015. Emergency operations manual needs to be updated. Rob attended our Oahe District Meeting on December 23, 2015, and did a presentation on courthouse security. He talked about what to do in different scenarios of threat in public buildings. Rob would like to do training in the courthouse for employees.

Fort Pierre Fire Department – Tye Odden: Tye Odden is 1st Captain and Head Training Officer with the fire department. They need more space for training and would like to use the grandstands at the fairgrounds. Fort Pierre and Pierre Fire Departments are working together with Rapid Intervention Training. They would like to do some rescue simulations in the bucking chutes also. They would not do any training at the fairgrounds if there are events going on.
Courthouse – Ricky Sass – Broom for Bobcat: Ricky Sass received two price proposals for a broom for the Bobcat. A broom would work better removing snow from the sidewalks around the courthouse. The highway department could use it also for sweeping the bridges. The Commissioners would like more information, is our Bobcat set up for a broom? This is tabled until January 5, 2016 meeting.
Highway Department – Lee Smith: Lee Smith received three different price proposals for loader forks. The differences are new, used, length and thickness. Loader forks would be used for different projects, tree removal, culvert placement, etc.
Motion by Craig Heller, second by Sonny Harrowa, to approve the purchase of loader forks, not to exceed $5,500.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
With the snow storm during the Christmas weekend, Lee Smith and Foreman Tom Richardson called in their crew to plow the roads on Sunday, December 27, 2015. Because the highway department was called in on Sunday, Lee would like for the crew to be paid as overtime.
The Blue Ford Trucks are 1990’s and the repair bills keep adding up just to keep them running. Lee would like to try to find another good used end-dump, possibly one with a sander.
Lee has talked with C. Alleman and Norman’s about gravel from their land. Gravel has been tested from both places and the results are good. Lee would like to talk price before they go any farther.
The highway department fixed the roof on the Cutter barn at the fairgrounds, and, weather permitting, will fix the fence around the race track.
There are still vehicles, campers and trailers parked at the fairgrounds from this fall when the city streets were under construction. Need to have the city contact the owners to have them removed.
Motion by Dana Iversen, second by Dennis Booth, to approve operating transfer from General to Road & Bridge in the amount of $200,000.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Motion by Dana Iversen, second by Craig Heller, to surplus the 1999 CAT Motor Grader. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.

Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to delay decision until the next meeting, January 5, 2016. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
The Commission will continue with Event Coordinator, Brenton Crane, until details are worked out.
