John Manning – Fairgrounds/Horse Races: John has concerns regarding the large rocks that have been placed by Fairgrounds Manager Aaron Brewer. They have been placed where horses should be able to walk, but due to safety concerns, they are having to go around the areas. John questioned as to why Aaron couldn’t have waited until after the horse races were over. Dean Hanson made a drain ditch to drain the water out and away from the barns, Aaron filled them back in. Commissioners Iversen and Deal stated they would investigate the situation. John thanked the Commissioners for their time and consideration with this matter.
Brosz Engineering – School Drainage: Scott Schweitzer stated that we need to increase the efficiency of water flowing south between the high school and the Sansarc School & log cabin. The sidewalk is a main foot traffic area. Dr. Joel Price stated that in the winter months the water runs onto the sidewalk and on the playground, when it freezes, it creates a health and safety issue. In the spring and fall, the water runs into the school and they are constantly running fans to dry out the floors, and it is a breeding ground for mosquitos.
Scott has worked up a plan to alleviate the water issues with a concrete channel for the water to drain south between the properties to the storm sewer on Main Avenue.
The Commissioners are all in favor and will have our State’s Attorney, Tom P. Maher, draw up an agreement with the school stating both parties agree to 50% of the cost of the project and 50% of the maintenance since the concrete channel will exist on both school and county property. The school will be responsible for the work and cost to fix the drainage to the playground. The County Highway Department will be responsible for the work and cost to fix the drainage in the northeast corner behind the Sansarc School.
Deb Schiefelbein inquired about the old jail. She will apply for a Grant for the roof and the masonry, then would like to see about lifting and leveling it to preserve it better.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented Commissioners with a report of all the work performed by the highway department for the month of April 2017.
Lee introduced Allan and Ken, with Z&S Dust Control. Magnesium chloride is the preferred chemical for dust control and road deicing. When used for dust control, magnesium chloride retains moisture from the air to keep the dust levels down on surfaces. When used as a deicer during the winter months, magnesium chloride lowers the temperature at which water freezes, or remains frozen, keeping the roads from getting slick. Maintaining dust-free roads is important in order to keep road users safe.
They use DustGuard as part of their dust control equipment. DustGuard is a stabilizing agent derived from Great Salt Lake minerals and its magnesium chloride component attracts moisture from the air in order to keep roads damp. When applied consistently each season, DustGuard penetrates the road base and significantly improves stability. Since magnesium chloride is composed of organic minerals, it is non-toxic and completely safe for humans and animals.
Traffic count is up on Bad River Road and Cut-Across Road. Lee will contact LTAP to get the material tested on Bad River Road. If the material is good, the Commissioners would like to see the first mile of Bad River Road treated. Lee will also contact the State for options for Cut-Across Road.
Lee received a quote for trailer tarps of $1,500.00 per trailer. They are electric with the switch on the trailer. Lee hired Wayne Deal at $125.00 per hour to haul gravel from the county pit to where ever the county equipment operators need the gravel.
Fairgrounds: Aaron Brewer stated the big rock is where the horse racers should be parking, no horses should be walking through that area. Aaron has been bringing in over-sized rock and packing them in, then he will bring in pit rock, it will make a good base. The over-sized rocks that were placed by the race track needs to have sand put over the rocks. Aaron spread sand under the horse walker, the horse trailers are parked in designated area and lined up, the fire lanes are kept clear.
Chairman Iversen asked how things were going with getting sponsors for the 4th of July rodeo, he hasn’t gotten any answers. Since the horse racers cleaned up the weeds, Aaron needs to make sure he sprays to keep the weeds under control.
Equine Events Management Internship: The Dakota Seed program has already set the summer internships. Auditor Edwards reached out to Hughes and Sully Counties for assistance funding the internship. As of our meeting time, we had not heard anything. The Commissioners agree, if the funding comes together, we will go forward with the internship. If the funding is not available, then the 4-H leaders and members are going to have to step up to help Jackie Husted with the 4-H events.
Amend Resolution 2015-18 – RDO dba Gun Smoke Farms: Motion by Scott Deal, second by Craig Heller, to amend legal description for Resolution 2015-18. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
