Verendrye Museum Update: Deb Schiefelbein thanked the Commission for their continued support. They had a very good BBQ Fundraiser during Fort Pierre Trader Days in August, and the Museum is planning to do it again next year along with the trail rides. All the fundraisers help with expenses for the museum.
Habitat for Humanity has offered to bring a group of volunteers to do repairs to the Sansarc School. Work on the old jail is slow, but the Museum is hoping to have it fixed up by early season next year. The Museum staff have been inventorying and cleaning.
Fairgrounds: Scott Deal is working on a proposal to present to the High School Rodeo Association to host the High School Finals Rodeo in Stanley County. There were 568 stalls for 4-H Finals but the High School Finals are not as big. Scott stated that the electrical hook-ups need to be updated.
Signage – The design of the signage for the west side of the Grandstand has been determined. Before the 4x160 foot sign is put in place, rain gutters, downspouts and snow gates need to be installed. Scott will get quotes for gutters, the sidewalk and a breezeway.
4th of July Rodeo – 2018 4th of July Rodeo final tally is $2,868.00 in the red. Scott is working on other events to add to the traditional rodeo to hopefully bring more people to fill the bleachers.
RDO: Wade Iszler presented the Commissioners with a bit of a different proposal for a 2019 John Deere 772G Motor Grader from the August 2018 meeting proposal. Unfortunately, the interest rate raised a bit, but the dealer incentives are better.

The Commissioners will finalize the purchase procedure during the September 25, 2018 meeting.
