Auditor and Treasurer Reports: Treasurer’s report was presented to the Commissioners with the July delinquent real estate list, advance tax trust, miscellaneous receipts (grants, Register of Deeds receipts, etc.), interest report, investments, and real estate tax receipts. Auditor Philena Edwards presented the Commissioners with the June Budget Expenditure Report showing each department’s expenses as of June 30, 2016, and the Outstanding Disbursements by account & budget remaining as of August 2, 2016.
Budget – Verendrye Museum: Carmen Carlisle stated that with the museum acquiring the Train Depot, the expenses of the three has exceeded their regular budget. The log cabin is the only one that sits on county land, therefore, as long as it is taken care of and kept up, the Commissioners agree that the funds are used where the museum sees fit. The Commissioners commented on how nice the log cabin looks, the crew is doing a great job. Carmen thanked the Commissioners for their continued support.
4-H Pierre Junior Shooter: Jonathan Hayes presented the Daisy BB Gun National Championship team along with their traveling trophy. This year they competed in Arkansas. They have won seven national titles, this is their third in a row. There are 49 kids in the program, seven of them make up the team that competed at nationals. They don’t rely on one person to carry the team, they are a complete team. The coaches are very proud of all the participants in the program. They do have a trophy for themselves to keep, it is hanging up at the Izaak Walton. They thanked the commissioners for their continued support of 4-H. If it wasn’t for 4-H, the kids wouldn’t be where they are.
Budget – River Cities Transit: Ron Baumgart stated that River Cities Transit logged around 18,000 transfers for Stanley County in 2015, 300 walk-ons per month, most of them were late-night rides. When they know big events are going on in town, they have extra drivers. They worked with Stanley American Legion Post 20 and received a Grant for Stanley County Veterans to ride for free for medical care appointments. Ron invited the Commissioners to come over anytime for a tour of the new additions to the building and the buses. The monies from the county is matched by Federal funding. Ron thanked the Commissioners for their continued support.
Emergency Management: In July 2016, Governor Dennis Daugaard issued an emergency fire declaration for 13 central and western South Dakota counties, including Stanley, which has been impacted by drought conditions. Daugaard said the declaration allows state government services to be used as necessary to help the counties that are part of the declaration. The declaration allows one single engine air tanker plane to be stationed in Pierre and managed by the South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s Division of Wildland Fire. The plane will respond as needed to fires in the declared counties. If used, the state would cover 90% of the cost while the counties would pay the other 10%. Additionally, the plane will be available to use on prairie fires affecting federal and tribal lands through existing agreements.
Fort Pierre Fire Department went through the right channels to request the plane to help with a fire north of town on Corps ground and the next day for a fire south of town. The purpose of the plane is to communicate with their contact on the ground for best placement of the water to get a fast moving fire slowed down so the fire fighters on the ground have a better chance of getting it under control. The pilot hit the mark both days and the fire department was able to extinguish both fires.
Rob Fines stated that the two priorities to consider before calling the plane are structure and safety. We will set protocol for both Fort Pierre Fire Department and Four Corners Fire Department. Will need to consider structure, life and terrain, since Stanley County has some rough terrain not fit for fire trucks. Also will need to be in contact with Randy Yost in Hayes, as he is good about having a plane on stand-by, we don’t want to have an accident with two planes. Would also like to send out a Thank You to CHS and ConeAg, they have both helped at times by bringing tankers of water to the fire fighters, making sure the tanks on the fire trucks have plenty of water.
Fort Pierre Fire Chief Justin Jones submitted a revised budget request for 2017. They are requesting an additional $500.00 to their original request. They would like to use it to purchase new equipment for structure and vehicle fires.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented Commissioners with a report of all the work performed by the highway department for the month of July 2016. Will be replacing cattle guards at Mortensons and Normans. Gravel has been placed at the fairgrounds and it is ready to start setting up stalls for 4-H finals rodeo. As soon as Morris, Inc. finishes their job with Hughes County, they will start crushing gravel at the Buffalo Pit.
The city asked if the county had any land to place the big recycle bin. It used to sit in the Casey Tibbs parking lot along the highway. To keep in centrally located, the county does have a small lot on the west side of the railroad tracks on W 2nd Ave, just west of the Cool Spot.
Fairgrounds: Aaron Brewer discovered water under the Schomer Barn. He put a sump pump at the curb stop and has been pumping out water. Been cleaning up old stuff that has been piled up behind the Schomer Barn. Get a list to the auditor so it can all be surplused. Need to start gathering panels for the outside stalls. The Commissioners would like all the weeds gone, either get the weed eater or pull them along the fence and rail, the fairgrounds needs to be cleaned up and looking nice for the 4-H Finals Rodeo.
PILT: Motion by Sonny Harrowa, second by Scott Deal, to approve the split of PILT as follows; County General $215,722.17; Fire $6,155.19; Road & Bridge $16,308.81; Courthouse $4,143.83. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
Oahe Marina – Annual Fundraiser – Fireworks: Motion by Craig Heller, second by Sonny Harrowa, to approve a Fireworks Public Display Permit to operate a display of fireworks to Oahe Marina for August 13, 2016 annual fundraiser event. All voted Aye. Motion Carried.
