Deputy Treasurer/Welfare Director Dawn Sass resigned effect June 3, 2015.
Treasurer Peggy Dougherty has been appointed Welfare Director until a new Deputy Treasurer is hired and has welfare training.
Grow South Dakota: Jared Groos thanked the commissioners for their time and continued support with this program. Mr. Groos explained that Grow South Dakota helps people who are in need of assistance, whether it be weatherization, based on income, to start-up small business loans. The monies that come from county contribution stays in the same county.
Abatements: Lawrence Thompson Jr – Motion by Dennis Booth, second by Sonny Harrowa, to approve abatement for Rec #9227 in the amount of $148.60, as this land is in Trust. Booth, Heller and Harrowa voted Aye. Iversen voted Nay. Motion Carried.
Barry & Kathy Heiss – Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Dana Iversen, to approve abatement for Rec #9429 in the amount of $1,429.96, as this record no longer exists. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Highway Department: Kelly McCollam gave a run-down of work performed; since we have gotten rain they have been blading; Walker Rd (Sansarc) from the phone booth to the highway needs work done to it; Bad River Road has some soft spots so they will be laying gravel there. The short roads that are maintained by Haakon County need gravel.
They finished the big arena at the fairgrounds and have had a lot of positive feed-back. The one big thing that has been noticed is there isn’t standing water anymore.
Extended pipe on Flom Road, it is still a little soft, but it has been widened and they will keep working on the soft areas.
Kelly will be doing another depth test on Bad River Road, when all the numbers are figured, we will know more about what all needs to be done before we Otto-Seal.
Will start spraying for Hoary Cress on Wednesday June 3, the Highway Department needs to bill Weed & Pest for spraying to keep better track for the Hoary Cress Grant. Dani’s Thistle will start spraying right-of-ways on June 13.
Kelly found a 2009 Freightliner truck. The commissioners agreed that another truck is needed.
The Fairgrounds Board would like to see the use of wood chips instead of hay in the stalls.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Dana Iversen, to go into Executive Session for Personnel SDCL 1-25-2(1) at 5:58 P.M. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Dana Iversen, to reconvene at 6:13 P.M. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Drainage Problem: Bass Drive was privately built with an adequate drainage ditch. Since 1998 the adjoining south property has continued to develop. The drainage ditch is now full, therefore, this creates flooding/run-off onto the neighboring north properties. Codified Law 46A-10A, cannot interfere with the natural flow of water. As neighboring landowners there is a need to decipher where the property line is.
Emergency Management & Disaster – Rob Fines: The State of South Dakota has implemented a credentialing program for all emergency responders, government administrators, and workers that may be involved in any future disaster in South Dakota. By registering you help document hours worked which result in FEMA reimbursement. In the future you will need to have in your possession an ID card from this program to enter into a disaster scene. Reason for doing this is to document hours worked and safety of responders while on scene.
Homeland Security Grants are open until July 31, 2015. These Grants are very beneficial, they helped get the three new sirens that were recently installed on Frontier Road and in the city.
Rob Fines spoke with the Fort Pierre Fire Department and Four Corners Fire Department, they are both in favor of lifting the burn ban. The county has received a lot of rain, which has helped.
Burn Ban – Motion by Dana Iversen, second by Sonny Harrowa, to lift Resolution 2015-08 Burn Ban effect June 3, 2015. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Courthouse Cooling/Heating System: Received three Proposals. After reviewing and discussing each Proposal, tabled the subject until we get more detail.
Update on Courthouse Elevator Project: As of April 30, 2015, AEL, the company building the elevator, had not begun the process. After correspondence between G&N Construction, Hahn Engineering and AEL, the elevator will be delivered June 8, 2015 and demolition and installation should begin the following week.
