Auditor Burtch also informed the Commissioners that Absentee Voting began on April 20, 2018, and things have been going smooth.
County Coroner: Gary Grittner would like to appoint two deputy coroners, Tiffany Sanchez and Shirley Swanson. They are both teachers and both good hands as Gary is thinking ahead to a day when he may want to step down as coroner.
By law, a County Coroner has to have 16 hours of training to begin, and 8 hours every other year. Deputies are not required to take the training. As of the end of April, the Coroner has not had any calls.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to approve the appointment of Deputy Coroners Tiffany Sanchez and Shirley Swanson. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Fort Pierre Fire Department: Rick Cronin stated that in 2015 the County agreed to give the fire department land for a new fire hall located north on SD Highway 1806. The new hall committee worked with their attorney to finalize a land agreement. The Committee has met with Brosz Engineering, they have an initial design and will start acquiring funding and applying for Grants as soon as the land agreement between the County and Fort Pierre Fire Department is approved and signed. Rick stated that the new hall could be a potential storm shelter for the people living at River Bluffs Estate and visitors at the campgrounds.
Hughes/Stanley Emergency Management: Rob Fines informed the Commissioners that the Grant for the new digital radios has been completed and submitted. The States emergency radios need to be updated by 2023 when analog systems will be outdated. The local fire departments will be able to use the analog radios to communicate within their department, however, if other departments are called in to assist, they will have to use digital.
The POD (Points of Dispensing) Plan pandemic is about completed and should be good for 3-5 years. Points of Dispensing is a place where medications for vaccinations can be provided on a mass scale to an entire community in a short period of time.
The State wants to change the funding for EM&D. If EM&D offices have a Director and a Deputy, the funding will continue. Hughes/Stanley Director is Rob Fines, once a Deputy is officially on staff, it will give Hughes/Stanley Counties more assistance.
The weather warning sirens were tested Wednesday, April 25th. All 23 sirens tested well, as did the new one located near the downstream. Weekly siren tests will be conducted Tuesdays at 10:15 A.M. throughout the summer.
Fairgrounds: Scott Deal presented the Commissioners with a report of the work completed in the month of April. Scott would like to install rain gutters and snow stops on the west side of the Grandstand. This will help to reduce water and snow near the building.
Grandstand Concession Area Update –The concession area is almost complete. The updates are working well for the horse races. Scott has looked at the walk-in-coolers and will decide what size will fit best once the horse races are done.
Parking Lot – Auditor Burtch spoke with the City of Fort Pierre regarding their street projects and if we, the City and County, could work together to fix the parking lot. We will communicate on timing of events and availability of equipment. The drainage problem between the south doors of the Grandstand and the paddock area will to be fixed when weather and timing of events allows.
Electrical Hook-ups – The area north of the bath house needs to be built up and leveled. The electrical pedestals need to be updated. Pedestals with two outlets 30 to 50 amp has to be on a cement pad. Scott will get quotes for total cost of pedestals. Also, the electrical hook-ups east of the Schomer barn need to be eliminated. It will open up more area for outside stalls.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented the Commissioners with a report of the work completed in the months of March and April. Verendrye Drive is getting tore up with all the extra truck traffic, the County should look into a Resolution to add a ton limit.
Courthouse Parking Lot – Lee would like to take out the grass area southeast of the courthouse for additional parking and fix the drainage from the Courthouse by sloping the area before we, the City and County, start work on the alley. Lee will get a plan put together.
Trailer for Skid-steer – The trailer that the highway department owns is too small to haul the skid-ster. Lee looked at a 20’ tilt HW, 7000lbs axels for $5,300.00. The Commissioners would like Lee to get a couple more quotes.
Lee informed the Commissioners that the Weed & Pest Board met Monday, April 30, 2018. They approved the hiring of Dani’s Thistle Spraying to spray the road ditches. They have done a good job the last few years. The Board also discussed the chemicals used for spraying needs to be more plant specific for weeds.
