Kasey stated her concerns regarding the lighting for the small arena. With updates in the plans, she asked about WiFi and the sound system. Auditor Burtch stated that we are working on WiFi and hope to have a system by the end of the year. As for the sound system, Scott has been in contact with a couple businesses regarding a sound system. Kasey stated that 4-H may be willing to commit funds to help purchase a different sound system.

After School Program: Pat Duffy stated that the Youth Center was built with the kids in mind. The Gold Program started 10 years ago with a Grant. Since the Program did not receive the Grant for the 2018-2019 school year, enrollment has dropped.


Pat stated the Youth Center Board is talking about running the summer program, but they are needing help with funding. Because our community is above poverty level, this Program does not qualify for food assistance. Right now, the Youth Center is feeding the kids lunch on Fridays out of the General Fund, which is funded by the City of Fort Pierre and Stanley County.


Vern Thorson stated that three weeks out of summer break parents have to find other child care because the ‘Gold Program’ is closed.


Pat stated the school is willing to share their facility for days when the Youth Center is not available. The Youth Center Board would run the Program differently. The Board would like to have solid plans set before summer break. They would like to see the local entities contribute more funding.
