PILT are Federal payments to local governments that help offset losses in property taxes due to non-taxable Federal lands within their boundaries. PILT payments help local governments carry out such vital services as firefighting and police protection, construction of public schools and roads, and search-and-rescue operations.

This report includes assessments for blood pressure checks, immunizations, vision, hearing, dental, and health, WIC Certifications and caseload issued vouchers, secondary nutrition counseling, and Reach Out & Read Books. Carmella held a DTAP and meningococcal clinic at the school in March. One day a month, Carmella travels to Kadoka/Jackson County to work and she has presented Growing Up classes at the school. WIC is eliminating the vouchers and replacing them with e-cards.
4-H: Amy Mesman presented the Commissioners with 4-H report. Total enrollment for the 2016-2017 4-H year is 284; 142 from Hughes County; 81 from Stanley County; and 61 from Sully County. 4-H has been busy with junior livestock shows, family & consumer science show, fundraisers, recognition events, horse judging, archery, Ag field day, tri-state horse show, market beef weigh-ins, horse safety, dog projects, shooting sports events, sheep, swine and goat weigh-ins and more.
Amy feels the transaction of having an Extension Director to just having an administrative assistant has been smooth, Jackie Husted has been doing very well and keeping very busy. 4-H is putting in for a Grant to help with programs for the kids. Amy thanked the Commissioners for their continued support of the 4-H program.
Log Cabin: Deb Schiefelbein had a group of over 70 people from the Retired Teacher Association tour the old school. The log cabin, school and train depot are open and ready for the season. The log cabins’ new roof is complete and it looks nice. Blackburn Basement has fixed the basement. They discovered some broken sprinkler pipes and Dakota Landscaping is working on fixing them. Rocky Curtis will replace the windows in July 2017. Deb has submitted a Grant to save the old jail. The Commissioners thanked Deb for all her hard work and dedication, the area around the log cabin looks very nice.
PAWS – Stray Animal Ordinance: Brenda Manning would like to see Stanley County adopt an ordinance for stray animals. As to date, there isn’t a policy or ordinance for what to do with stray animals within the County. Brenda presented the Commissioners with a proposed ordinance for animal control. Tom P. Maher will review it, do some research, and will work with law enforcement and Brenda.
RDO – John Deere Motor Grader: Wade Iszler presented the Commissioners with a Minnesota bid for a 2017 John Deere 772 GP Motor Grader. It comes with an 84 months, 7500 hour warranty. Includes snow wing, rear-view camera is optional. The Minnesota bid is set to expire September 2017, if we are interested in this bid, the motor grader will not be ready for delivery for 5 months.
Fairgrounds: Aaron Brewer informed the Commissioners that the Casey Tibbs Match of Champions went well. Need to get better handicap signage and build a ramp on the north side of the bleacher. Aaron has sprayed all the weeds, except around the track, he plans to weed eat next week.
Troy Ventura would like to rent the fairgrounds for the Indian Rodeo June 17, 2017, the finals this fall, and possibly make it an annual event. They asked if the County could help with prize monies. The Commissioners agreed to $2,500.00, with the stipulation that the County gets all the concession and ½ the gate until the County makes back $2,500.00.
Aaron has spoken to Fresh Start Convenience Store in Fort Pierre about doing the concessions for little events. They will do the beer and food concessions, the County will get 20% of gross income. Fresh Start will bring in their own equipment and take care of everything. Aaron also suggested that since there are 4 windows in the food concession area, there could be 4 different food vendors. Commissioner Harrowa stated that the electrical will need to be updated and brought up to code before any extra equipment can be used. Aaron will contact an electrician.
Chairman Iversen asked about sponsors for the 4th of July Rodeo. Aaron stated he has been around town, handed out more brochures and he has some out-of-town people to call. Things are tight with all that is going on in the community. He has 80 more calls to make. Aaron’s goal is to get $20,000.00 in sponsorships, then he is done.
Central SD Enhancement District – County Site Analysis Program: Emeline Hoblick presented a PowerPoint showing locations that would accommodate concentrated animal feeding operations development (CAFO) or agriculturally-related commercial/industrial development (AID) in Stanley County. The analysis does not make claim that identified sites are the only sites for development in the county. The analysis identified potential sites that met very specific criteria. The purpose for the analysis is to identify where the best place for CAFO and AID development could occur within a county that met local development controls and also had adequate infrastructure. The methodology is the proximity to three-phase electricity supply, rural water system, rural residences and communities, and rail, capacity of rural water system, existing zoning districts and buildable parcel. This is the only database built in the state based on parcel, electricity, rural water, road and zoning data. It has the ability to do in-depth query analysis and to contact landowners. Siting of CAFO/AID facilities, counties use GIS database to verify a potential site and to respond to GOED RFP request.
Stanley County has 34 good sites for low water CAFO and 15 good sites for high water CAFO. There are 4 good sites for low water AID and 4 good sites for high water AID.
Motion by Scott Deal, second by Sonny Harrowa, to accept and approve Chairman Iversen to sign the 2018 Joint Cooperative Agreement between Central South Dakota Enhancement District and Stanley County. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Highway Department: Lee Smith stated that the highway department has been hauling a lot of gravel. They have been laying gravel on north Hayes road, all the way to Mission Ridge, all the gravel at Fravels pit has been used up. Gravel has been laid on County Line Road and War Creek Road, they are hauling out of the Stroup pit. Lee’s plan is to gravel one full section of the county roads before moving to the next section.
Lee and Commissioner Harrowa will look at a section in the SW corner of the county for possible Hoary Cress. The county has had it under control, but some landowners believe they have discovered some. Lee needs to contact the railroad to make sure they are spraying for weeds.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Scott Deal, to approve new hire of Keva Briggs, Highway Administrative Assistant, at $14.50 per hour, plus benefits, with 50¢ wage increase at 6 months, 12 months and 18 months, with supervisor approval, plus any cost of living increase approved by Commissioners for all county employees.
