Auditor Philena Edwards presented the Commissioners with the June Budget Expenditure Report showing each department’s expenses as of June 30, 2017, the Fiscal Revenue Report as of June 30, 2017, and the Outstanding Disbursements by account & budget remaining as of August 1, 2017.


4-H Pierre Jr Shooters: Jonathan Hayes presented the eighth Daisy BB Gun National Championship team and trophy. The team of 7 traveled to Arkansas again and competed with over 400 kids from 21 different states. The BB Gun team has 6 competitions in the state throughout the year. Jonathan thanked the Commissioners for their continued support of the 4-H program.


Highway Department:  Lee Smith presented the Commissioners with a report of the work performed for the month of July. Lee had the south end of the gravel pile tested. The results came back good, 1,000 to 1,200 ton is needed for the DustGuard treatment. Lee would like to have this treatment applied this fall. Plum Creek needs to have rip-rap by the bridge pilings.


Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Craig Heller, to purchase the 1989 CAT Dozer, not to exceed $26,000.00.  All voted Aye. Motion Carried.


Motion by Scott Deal, second by Craig Heller, to lease a 2018 John Deere 772G motor grader for 5 years. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.


Lee looked into a used water tanker out of Minnesota. The Commissioners would like Lee to check into renting one due to the fact that the County does not need one on a regular basis.


Haakon County is rebuilding Saddle Butte Road and approached Lee about completing the entire road, including the two miles into Stanley County at a rate of $4,500.00 per mile, not to exceed $9,000.00. Their equipment is already on site. The Commissioners are all in favor of Haakon County rebuilding the entire road.


A building located on Buffalo Road may be up for sale, it would be a good fit for a new county shop. It is big enough to put trucks and equipment in, out of the elements of the weather. The Auditor will get more information. 


Log Cabin/Old Jail: Deb Schiefelbein informed the Commissioners that the new windows for the log cabin should be delivered within the week and then Rocky Curtis will install them.


Deb met with Lee Smith, Rick Hahn and Darby Nutter regarding a plan to update the old jail. The plan is to pour a thin concrete layer to slope the floor out the door, repair the masonry, replace the windows, paint and replace the old cedar shakes on the roof.


Fort Pierre Fire Department: Justin Jones and Tye Odden informed the Commissioners that as-to-date, the department has responded to 60 calls, compared to 106 total calls for 2016. The Department is requesting additional budget funds to purchase new radios and do fire hall maintenance, they applied for a match Grant to help with these expenses.


The Department applied for other Grants to assist with new gear. They have 12 new members in the last year and they need to have equipment for safety for all the fire fighters. Bunker gear, boots and helmets cost $8,600.00 per set and wild fire gear is $1,000.00 per set. All the trucks are up and running well, they get maintained on a regular schedule.


Tye informed the Commissioners that the SEAT plane is in Pierre, BIA gets first priority. Tye has not been informed if the State will assist with the cost.


Fairgrounds:  The roping over the weekend went well, and worked better in the small arena. Dana will work on mowing the weeds, pick up the bigger rocks in the parking area by the barns and get the area ready to set up outside stalls for 4-H finals rodeo.


Emergency Medical Service Agreement (EMS): Motion by Dennis Booth, second by Sonny Harrowa, to accept and approve Chairman Iversen to sign the EMS Agreement. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
