Coroner 2020 Report: Coroner Gary Grittner presented the Commissioners with the 2020 Stanley County Coroner Year End Report. The County Coroner is responsible for certifying the cause and manner of death on the death certificate for in-county deaths where the deceased is not under the care of a medical professional, or where the death is the result of an accident, homicide or suicide. Gary informed the Commissioners that the Coroner’s Department had eight calls for 2020. Gary showed the Commission the newly purchased jackets and badges for the Coroners Department. The jackets and badges will make it easier for other law enforcement and first responders to recognize Coroners on scene.

Fairgrounds – Scott Deal informed the Commissioners that the Schomer Barn has been busy. People are coming from a long way to use the barn. Scott has the welders set up, the square tubing and drill stem pipe has been delivered and Scott has started to make panels. Scott has 32 events scheduled for the fairgrounds.

Fence: Scott Deal would like to remove the chain link fence and put up a wood fence from the south corner of the Expo Building to the north corner of the Grandstand, and from the south corner of the Grandstand to the Wandel Gate. No action was taken.

Ticket Booth: Scott Deal looked at a ticket booth at federal surplus. Scott feels there is a need for some kind of cover for protection from the weather at the Wandel Gate. The Commission would like Scott to get a price.

VW Truck Rebate Program: Lee Smith informed the Commission that the highway department applied for the South Dakota’s Volkswagen Class 4-8 Local Freight Truck Rebate Program.

Discussion: Chairman Iversen stated that Register of Deeds Bev Stoeser is planning to retire before the end of 2021, the County needs to open the position and advertise so there is plenty of time for training.
