Auditor Philena Burtch presented the Commissioners with the Budget Expenditure Report showing each department’s expenses as of October 31, 2018, and the Outstanding Disbursements by account & budget remaining as of December 3, 2018.
Emergency Management & Disaster: Rob Fines informed the Commissioners that the Homeland Security Grant was awarded and Stanley County will received $18,000.00 for the purchase of new radios for emergency services. The new radios will not be put into use until 2023 when the communication system is updated.
Hazard Mitigation Project: Nicole Prince, with Central SD Enhancement District, informed the Commissioners of a home located on 1806 that is sliding. The homeowners would like the County to apply for a Hazard Mitigation Grant to demolish the home so they can move forward. The deadline for the application is December 15, 2018.
Mike and Robyn Moore stated there is a 100ft drop behind the house and they were advised to get out of the house before winter. The house is cracked in 3 sections. If they demolish the house, it is estimated to cost around $100,000.00. If the house falls, the homeowners will have to pay helicopters to remove the debris, or build a road to clean up the debris.
The mitigation program has funds remaining from the last disaster in Stanley County. The Grant would cover 75%, the homeowners would be responsible for 25%.
The Moore’s are requesting assistance from the County because only government entities can apply for such a Grant.
The Commissioners would like more information. State’s Attorney Tom P. Maher, CSDED Nicole Prince and Auditor Philena Burtch will meet on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, to discuss the project in more detail.
Motion by Dennis Booth, second by Craig Heller, to approve Auditor Philena Burtch as Authorized Applicant Agent. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
