Coroner: Gary Grittner presented the Commissioners with a review of 2016. The Coroner is responsible for completing the cause and manner of death on the death certificate of 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. In 2016, the Coroner was involved in 8 such cases. The Coroner’s budget for 2016 was $10,000.00. The amount expended by the Coroner was $2,758.72. Of the total expended, $480 was stipends for the Coroner and Deputy Coroner, $270 was toxicology costs and the remainder $1,972 was cost of an autopsy from a late 2015 case. No travel, equipment or supply costs were charged to the budget, as Gary does not submit these expenses for reimbursement.
Gary appointed an additional Deputy Coroner, as to date, the County has, on-call, Coroner Gary Grittner, Deputy Coroner Jill Richardson and Deputy Coroner Camille Erickson. While the Coroner does not have control over the number of calls, Gary will continue to do his best to provide a professional service to the County at the least possible cost.
The Commissioners thanked Gary for his dedication.
Highway Department: Philena Edwards presented Commissioners with a report of all the work performed by the highway department for the month of January 2017.

Lee received a couple quotes for a new motor for the 2010 Ford pickup.
Motion by Dennis Booth, second by Sonny Harrowa, to accept the quote for a new engine for the 2010 Ford
pickup from Catlin’s Car Clinic, not to exceed $6,900.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Stanley Post 20 American Legion: Eugene Collett, Larry Manke and Reed Stoeser informed the Commissioners of the progress of the softball complex. They are getting ready to do backstop for the fence at home base, in-field is almost complete. They are working with Scott from Brosz, as soon as they get the plans the Commissioners will receive a copy. The first field is taking shape. They have half of the aggregate for the first field, as soon as they put the bases in place, backstop and irrigation in and work the field, they hope to be ready for practice this spring and games this summer. Their goal is to have 4 teams this year.
Eugene questioned if there is a need for the Legion to own the beer license? Or if others would be doing the beer garden at the fairgrounds? The Commissioners all agree that the Legion and Auxiliary do a good job and they are reliable to run it during the County run events. They have been doing other fundraisers and would like to continue to help the County with events.
Motion by Craig Heller, second by Scott Deal, to approve the Stanley Post 20 American Legion to run the beer garden and concession during the 4th of July Rodeo. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
