Verendrye Museum: Deb Schiefelbein updated the commissioners with progress at the Train Depot. They are planning a Grand Opening on July 2, 2016. They are also hoping to have the telegraph working to communicate with the Deadwood and Redfield Train Depots. The log cabin has been painted and they are putting in a Grant request to move the utilities upstairs from the basement. The museum is open. Some of the clothing has smoke damage, so they are trying to get help to get them cleaned. The building also needs better ventilation for all the archives. The next project is to preserve the old jail. The Fort Pierre Verendrye Museum has put out a new brochure that includes the museum, the log cabin, the Verendrye Plate, the train depot and the Sansarc Country School.
US Forest Service: Dan Svingen briefed the Commissioners with all that the USDA Forest Service, Fort Pierre Ranger District is up to. They administer the 116,000 acre Fort Pierre National Grassland for multiple uses. Each year they graze 90% of the Grassland using modified deferred rotation; survey prairie grouse each spring; map prairie dog colonies every other year; cooperatively poison encroaching prairie dog colonies; coyote control was conducted by SD Game, Fish and Parks in spring 2016; repairing stock ponds; and they continue to do training and mutual aid firefighting with Fort Pierre Fire Department. They work well with Stanley County Sheriff’s Department. In May they finished contract to clean out 21 cattle guards and safely burned 390 acres. June 18, 2016, they have a ‘BioBlitz’ scheduled, which is where different groups walk through the Grasslands and identify different species of bugs and weeds. They have also created a SD Fishing Guide to the National Grasslands & Birding book. It is detailed with pictures and maps. They are available at their office.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented Commissioners with a report of all the work performed by the highway department for the month May 2016. A culvert on Cedar Hill Road has been fixed and the new grass that was planted after last year’s storm is growing.
The highway department would like to have a lowboy trailer to haul equipment. It would save wear and tear on the equipment and save time.
Motion by Scott Deal, second by Sonny Harrowa, to purchase a 1992 Trailking lowboy trailer, not to exceed $21,000.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Lee is working with two dealers for an excavator. An excavator will allow the highway department to do more of their own repairs.
Effective June 13, 2016, the highway assistants’ new hours will be 4-10 hour days.
Emergency Management & Disaster: Rob Fines informed the Commission about Home Land Security Grants are due by August 1, 2016. The county purchased one emergency siren last year with the Grant, may look into purchasing one for Bad River Road.
Rob would like to see Stanley County implement a similar burn ban like Hughes County recently adopted. Instead of calling a special meeting, or waiting for the regular meeting, it will be automatic per National Weather Service when the Fire Danger Index is Very High or Extreme category, or a Red Flag Warning is put in place. The Commission would like to have this ordinance in place. Rob will check with Fort Pierre Fire Department and work with them.
EM&D is just finishing up with the Mitigation Plan and starting HazMat Plan.
The Freshmen Impact program had 217 students attend, 146 volunteers and a lot of spectators. They have received a lot of positive comments. Thank you Stanley County for supporting this program.
