Resolution # 2012 -- 06
WHEREAS, Stanley County continues to suffer from a natural disaster in the form of severe agricultural drought conditions, including extremely inadequate winter snowfall, meager spring rains, desolating winds accompanied with high temperatures and late frosts which have severely impacted all drought conditions, the Board of County Commissioners resolve that said drought conditions constitute a natural disaster of such severity and magnitude that an effective response is beyond the capabilities of this County, or even the State of South Dakota, and that Federal assistance is necessary, and there is no emergency plan available to alleviate the damage and economic chaos resulting from these conditions; and
WHEREAS, Stanley County does not have the financial resources to respond to this disaster; and
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Stanley County is aware sparse pastures and lack of forage crops for the feeding of livestock is necessitating the reduction/disposal of livestock herds; and
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Stanley County is aware that fall and spring planted small grains are already dying; and
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Stanley County realizes that an emergency has resulted from a lack of water in the agriculture community and the quality of water in stock ponds due to extreme low runoff, which could result in a high selenium concentration and livestock mortality,
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Stanley County is aware that in addition to these conditions, the continuing drought conditions introduce a new element of synergism compounding the magnitude of devastation to our agricultural infrastructure,
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, the Board of County Commissioners of Stanley County, South Dakota, declares a natural disaster drought emergency; and it is
FURTHER RESOLVED, we, the Board of Commissioners of Stanley County respectfully petition the Governor of the State of South Dakota and the President of the United States to provide with all dispatch and remedies any state and /or federal assistance available for this type of emergency.
Commissioner D.D. Jacobson moved to adopt said resolution and Commissioner Brian Scott seconded the motion. All voted aye:
Motion passed and Resolution # 2012 -- 06 adopted this 2nd day of July, 2012.
