Motion Carried.
Emergency Management: Rob Fines informed the Commission that the training went well, we had good attendance. Stanley County should be receiving the report from Homeland Security regarding the courthouse security. Rob reminded the Commission of the active shooter exercise on Wednesday November 13, the courthouse will be closed to public from 3-5 P.M. There will be a lot of emergency response departments involved in the exercise. There will be a debriefing afterward to discuss pros and cons.
Fairgrounds: Scott Deal informed the Commission that only one contractor showed up at the mandatory pre-bid meeting for the electrical hook-ups. The City of Fort Pierre will remove the old transformer and overhead electrical lines, and the City will install a new transformer in the area of the electrical hook-ups.
Scott stated that work on the parking lot has begun. Scott has been talking with Allen Weischedel about New Years Eve Bull Riding. They aren’t sure if the bull riding will happen this year due to the cost of heating the Schomer Barn.
Highway Department: Lee Smith informed the Commission that Levi Neuharth and he attended the Weed & Pest District meeting. Stanley County qualified for $3,500.00 Weed & Pest grant for 2020. They were informed of a new weed discovered in South Dakota, Palmer Amaranth. The Palmer Amaranth is an aggressive, invasive weed that has been popping up. This woody, noxious weed starts as a tiny seed and can grow to be around 6’ tall, however, they are easy to kill.
Lee Smith presented the Commission with a report of work completed by the Highway Department for the month of October 2019. Work consists of blading, hauling gravel, mowing, servicing and working on equipment and trucks, clean drainages on Cut-Across Road and Mission Ridge Road, haul fill material to fill washout on Tom Schmitz Road, replace a culvert on Bobby Stoeser Road and site prep at the fairgrounds parking lot. Lee informed the Commission that the 12,000 gallon fuel tank is supposed to be delivered to the county shop the first week of December 2019.
A couple of the Commissioners have received phone calls regarding Cut-Across road getting rough. Lee explained that they have not run a blade over it since the soil stabilization was completed in July. With the moisture that the area has received and all the grain and gravel trucks that have traveled on it, it may be time to blade it. Lee will drive across it and access what needs to be done to fix the issues.
Supplemental Budget – Courthouse Building Fund: Auditor Burtch will publish a Notice in the newspaper for the December 3, 2019, meeting to supplement the 2019 budget by increasing the Courthouse Building Fund by $100,000.00 for the final bill on the fairgrounds parking lot.
