During the hearing, there will be discussion regarding ‘No Maintenance’, ‘Minimum Maintenance’, or permanent road closer segments; Inventory of all roads under the jurisdictions to determine signing needs; Preparation of signing plans; Production of a map with names used for the rural addressing system applicable to Stanley County; and an aerial photographed map of the City of Fort Pierre showing location and type of existing and new or replaced signs.
