Treasurer and Auditor Report: Treasurer Peggy Dougherty presented the Commissioners with the Treasurers report, April and May bank statement and daily cash, delinquent real estate and mobile home taxes paid, tax trust, miscellaneous receipts (Grants, Register of Deeds receipts, etc.), investments and Money Market reports. Auditor Philena Burtch presented the Commissioners with the Budget Expenditure Report showing each department’s expenses as of April 30, 2019, the Outstanding Disbursements by account & budget remaining as of June 3, 2019, and the Fiscal Revenue Report as of April 30, 2019.
Grow South Dakota: Jared Groos presented the Commission with the 2018 Investments in Stanley County, which totaled $74,917. Funds from Stanley County are used for emergency situations such as repair of or replacement of water heater or furnace. The program assisted 27 people. They help with home loans, business loans and with the Governors house program.
In South Dakota, 115,000 people live in poverty. Many more have incomes above the poverty line, but still low enough to qualify for programs like Food Stamps and Medicaid. It is difficult for those of us who have enough to truly understand the situations that families living in poverty experience every day, the decisions they have to make and the fears and frustrations they feel.
County Employee Health Insurance: Zach Clark, with Clark Insurance, informed the Commission that if the County stays with the same health care insurance plan, the rates will decrease by 0.03%. The County’s health insurance is due for renewal on August 1, 2019. Zach presented two similar plans.
Motion by Craig Heller, second by Mike Kenzy, to accept the Wellmark quote for county employee health insurance to begin August 1, 2019. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
4-H: Johnathan Neuharth informed the Commission that he has been busy again this year in 4-H. He is involved in goats, chicken shows and visual arts shows. In 2018, he placed 4th at State for Showman. It was the 4th time Prairie Winds 4-H has been represented at Western Junior. This year he will be involved in the horse show. During 4-H Achievement Days 2019, he will show goats, chickens, visual art projects and public presentation. He has learned about vaccination of livestock, record keeping, emergency safety and bio security, which is keeping the animals and shelters clean. Johnathan thanked the Commission for their continued support of 4-H to help the program to keep going.
Jayna Blume is in her 2nd year of 4-H. She shows cattle, shoots BB gun and participates in Achievement Days.
Crystal Neuharth presented the Commission with a schedule of the upcoming local events, which includes County 4-H Horse Show, Progressive Agriculture Farm Safety Day, Special Foods Contest, Dog Show, Public Presentation Contest, Fashion Revue Workshop and Contest, and Prairie Winds 4-H Achievement Days. Crystal thanked the Commission for their continued support of 4-H.
The Commission thanked Johnathan and Jayna for coming in and to continue to work hard. They should be proud of their accomplishments.
Fairgrounds: Scott Deal informed the Commission that the Casey Tibbs Match of Champions went well. He had to hire R&W to fix the southeast corner of the blue barn. The stalls are fixed and ready for the next round of events.
All the stalls are clean, half of the mowing is complete. The storm on Friday, May 31, 2019, took down the gutters on the west side of the Schomer Barn, he will get a quote for repairs.
The gutters on the Grandstand are fixed. The natural gas line is installed and ready to hook up to the stoves. The panels for the southeast side of the crows nest arrived and everything is in place.
Scott met with Missouri River Energy Services regarding better, more efficient lighting in the Schomer Barn and under the Grandstand. The electrical box northeast of the crows nest needs to be fixed. Scott will contact the electrical engineer to get plans started on the electrical updates.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented the Commission with a report of work completed by the Highway Department for the month of May 2019. Work consists of organizing the new shop, repairs and maintenance on equipment, trucks and trailers, hauling gravel, blading, fill cuts and washouts on roads, repairing flood damaged roads, preparing the site at the new shop for the new fuel tanks, cleaning roadside ditches and culverts and flood control.
Lee informed the Commission that the County is running low on gravel, and will need to crush gravel within the next year.
The county roads are looking better. War Creek Road had water over it, but it did not hurt the culverts. Water is still flowing through the smaller culverts. Philip Matthews’ road washed out, the culvert needs to be replaced and more gravel will be laid.
Lee would like to look into purchasing another loader. He would like one that can reach the top of the trailers and fill the trailers with 4 buckets instead of 6-8 buckets.
Willow Creek Crossing washed out and has been fixed twice this year, and needs to be fixed again. Something different needs to be done with it, possibly fractured rock or chunked concrete.
The soil stabilization project for Cut-Across Road is on hold due to weather and priorities of other County roads. Gravel is needed for Sansarc Road before Cut-Across Road. Brown Church Road needs two culverts installed.
