4-H/Extension: Hilary Risner is the Regional 4-H Youth Program Advisor for SDSU Extension. Her function is to be the liaison between SDSU Extension and county 4-H programs. Hilary thanked the Commissioners for their continued support of the 4-H Program.
Fairgrounds: Scott Deal presented to the Commissioners a report of work performed for the month of October. Scott put up guard rails on bleachers and has been working the arenas. People have started using the Schomer Barn for riding. Also, Scott has received word from SDRA Rodeo, Stanley County’s Fort Pierre 4th of July Rodeo has been selected as 2017 Rodeo of the Year. The award will be presented at the SDRS banquet November 18, 2017, at the Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center.
Bleachers: Scott Deal called for prices for new bleachers for the north side of the grandstands. He would like to eliminate the north gate for safety purpose and place bleachers for more seating. The bleachers are 10 rows, 27 feet long and $12,278 each. Scott would like two sets, one to replace the old existing set and one for the area of the north gate. He has spoken to Emeline with Central South Dakota Enhancement District regarding the availability of a Grant.
New Year’s Eve Bull Riding: Scott Deal has a meeting set with an outside party interested in the bull riding. The County will rent the facility.
4-H Finals: Kasey Hanson is the new President of the 4-H Finals Board. She discussed the 4-H/Stanley County waiver, makes the paperwork easier if they are one form. 4-H had a Special-Needs day this year for people with special needs. Received good reviews and would like to do one again in 2018. Kasey discussed the safety of traffic inside the grounds and asked if the stock trucks and trailers could be directed out a different gate. Discussion of the gate on Ash Avenue as an exit only is a possibility. There is a need for more hydrants around the barns.
Kasey received a lot of good comments about the way the contestants received their stalls this year, less confusion and clutter having someone greet them at the entrance with the information. Parking is another issue. Scott Deal stated that he is working on a solution, a parking grid.
4-H Finals 5 Year Contract Agreement: Kasey Hanson stated that SDSU has agreed that a 5 Year Contract would be in the best interest of the Finals Rodeo. Tom P. Maher and Scott Deal will review the existing contract and make changes as needed, including a revision clause. The 4-H Finals Board and Stanley County will meet once a year to revise any portion of the contract as needed.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented the Commissioners with a report of the work performed in October. Lee has looked into a new pickup, ¾ ton, 4x4, 4 door short box. They are 2 to 3 months out for delivery. Saddle Butte Road is complete, so the dust control project on Bad River Road will start next week. The highway department is finishing the prep work by removing the loose gravel. The temperature has to be at least 50° for the mixture to set up.
Lee has talked with Brosz Engineering about the 1936 bridge on Bad River Road. They will start the engineering planning to replace the bridge within the next 5 years.
2018 Gravel Crushing: Lee Smith suggested that it would be in the best interest of the County to crush gravel from a pit near Bad River Road, less miles to truck it. Chairman Iversen suggested the Lee contact Jones County and find out if they would like to go in on a bid for gravel crushing.
Weed & Pest: The Weed & Pest Board met and discussed a skid-mounted spray unit that will slide into a pickup. Lee Smith stated they have been noticing more puncture vine, goat heads, taking over. The Board feels this type of sprayer would be more convenient for access to these areas.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to purchase a skid-mounted spray unit, not to exceed $3,500.00. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Emergency Management: Rob Fines presented the Commissioners with the idea of a new alert system. There are two parts of the Alert Sense; public – notifies the public of severe weather or road closures by text, voicemail, email, land line or cell, depending on how the individual signs up to receive the message; and private or internal – each individual entity can set it up for their group for messages or reminders. The Alert Sense is a mass notification that is an enhancement to our siren system. The cost to Stanley County is $750 a year, Rob will present the idea to the City of Fort Pierre. If the City agrees, the cost will be split per population.
Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to accept the annual Alert Sense contract, not to exceed $750.00, and approve Chairman Iversen to sign the contract. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Walworth County Jail 2 Year Rental Agreement: Motion by Dennis Booth, second by Craig Heller, to accept the Walworth County Jail 2 Year Rental Agreement and approve Chairman Iversen to sign. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
PILT: Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to approve split of PILT (Payments In Lieu of Taxes) as follows; County General $220,147.34; Fire $6,281.45; Road & Bridge $16,643.36; Courthouse $4,228.85. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
