Courthouse-Ventilation System: Rick Striker informed the Commission that one of the main units of the courthouse ventilation system is no longer working and the other one is weak. Rick tried to repair the one that is not working, but he’s having issues finding parts for units that old. Rick received an estimate from Airtech Heating & Cooling, not including the price of a boom truck to set the units on the roof. Rick will call around to get prices for the use of a boom truck.
Motion by Craig Heller, second by Dennis Booth, to accept Airtech Heating & Cooling estimate to replace both courthouse ventilation systems in the amount of $2,991. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Vanguard-GIS Web Site: Donnie Campbell presented the Commission with two Web Site Packages for five years, one in the amount of $11,000.00 and one for $12,000.00. With Director of Equalizations GIS near completion, Vanguard would host the web site for public viewing, seeing only the basic information of land in Stanley County. The County Commission would have say in how much information is viewed for basic information and how much information could be viewed by others who pay a subscription fee.
Emergency Management: Rob Fines informed the Commission about a $25,000.00 Homeland Security Grant that will be used to purchase a Matrice 210 Drone. The drone will be shared by Hughes County and Stanley County. The drone has the capability of carrying two high performance cameras at once, multiple payload options like zoom and infrared. The drone has 38 minutes of maximum flight time and a 5 mile operating range.
ALICE Training & Exercise – Rob explained that Homeland Security is focusing on security for courthouses. Emergency Management and Homeland Security will be conducting active shooter training and an exercise at both Hughes County and Stanley County Courthouses. All the employees will be trained and the exercise will be as realistic as possible. Rob explained that Homeland Security will conduct an assessment of the courthouse for safety and security before the training is held.
Stanley County Five-Year Highway and Bridge Improvement Transportation Plan: Motion by Dennis Booth, second by Sonny Harrowa, to approve the Stanley County Five-Year Highway and Bridge Improvement Transportation Plan as presented. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented the Commission with a report of work completed by the Highway Department for the month of September 2019. Work consists of blading, mowing, servicing and working on equipment and trucks, fill washout on Willow Creek Road, dust control on Cut-Across Road and cleaning up old and new shops and yards.
Lee informed the Commission that the stabilization project on Cut-Across Road is complete. The road is solid which makes driving on it good. The Commission asked Lee when the highway department plans to start tearing out the fairgrounds parking lot. Lee stated that he will get with Sharpe Enterprises to discuss timeframe. Lee also stated that with the water table, he feels a Geo-grid textile should be laid down prior to the base. It will cost an additional $7,000.00, but it will benefit the longevity of the parking lot.

4-H Finals Rodeo: Kasey Hanson informed the Commission that this year’s 4-H Finals Rodeo had 555 contestants, up from previous years. This is the first year 4-H Finals have been able to use the Expo Building. The 4-H board had a lot of complements regarding their BBQ and awards ceremony. Kasey thanked Shane Kramme and Calli Iversen for all their help with the Expo.
Kasey had concerns regarding the ruts, holes and weeds. Fairgrounds Manager Scott Deal reminded Kasey that it has been a very wet year, in fact there was a major thunderstorm that dumped a lot of rain 5 days prior to finals. Half of one barn had water in it, 32 stalls out of 589 were not suitable for use the first day of finals.
Scott had concerns regarding the parking. It has been discussed in the past of laying chalk lines, roping off sections or having someone in charge of showing people where to park the horse trailers. Kasey explained that they don’t have the resources to pay someone to be in charge of parking. Scott stated that the city streets are not the place for livestock as there are signs posted.
South Dakota 4-H Finals Rodeo is only one of two 4-H Finals Rodeo in the nation, New Mexico is the other. South Dakota is the largest and they will celebrate 50 years in 2021.
Fairgrounds: Gutters – Schomer Barn- Scott Deal informed the Commission that he contacted another gutter contractor, but they are unable to get the same gutters that are on the Schomer Barn, which are industrial gutters. Commissioner Dennis Booth recused himself from the conversation.
Motion by Craig Heller, second by Sonny Harrowa, to accept the estimate from Dakota Builders, LLC, to replace the damaged rain gutters on the west side to the Schomer Barn in the amount of $6,671.00. Heller Aye, Harrowa Aye, Kenzy Aye, Iversen Aye. Motion Carried.
