Treasurer and Auditor Report: Treasurer Peggy Dougherty presented the Commissioners with Treasurers report, July bank statement and daily cash, delinquent real estate and mobile home taxes paid, tax trust, miscellaneous receipts, (Grants, Register of Deeds receipts, etc.), investments and Money Market reports. Auditor Philena Burtch presented the Commissioners with the Budget Expenditure Report showing each department’s expenses as of June 30, 2018, and the Outstanding Disbursements by account & budget remaining as of August 6, 2018.
American Legion Post 20: Kim Hallock informed the Commission that Post 20 and the City of Fort Pierre are negotiating plans for water and sewer to the new ball fields north of town. The Legion is planning to have the engineering for the second field complete before winter. They are developing as much as they can with the funds they have available.
Fort Pierre Horse Racing: Shane Kramme is working with representatives seeking funding for horse races for the 2019 season. He is hopeful, and doing all that he can to make sure horse racing continues in Fort Pierre, and South Dakota.
River Cities Transit: Ron Baumgart thanked Shane Kramme for all his efforts with the 2018 horse racing season.
River Cities Transit moves a lot of people. Transit tries to do the best for the people who need transportation. They transport, on average, around 1,000 people a day between Fort Pierre and Pierre. Ron explained that they are requesting additional funds to keep up with the cost. They are also needing to upgrade the fleet and would like the Commission to consider matching funds for the new buses.
Ron Baumgart also informed the Commission that River Cities Transit received a Safety Grant for efficiency during their annual convention. Ron learned that River Cities Transit is the only transit in the United States that runs 24/7.
Fort Pierre Fire Department – Land Agreement: Rick Cronin stated that he presented the land agreement to the new fire hall board, they didn’t have many changes. However, one question arose regarding the land transfer after Grant approval, but before construction: Does the County want the liability during construction? Commissioner Harrowa stated that the fire department could get their own insurance policy during the construction of the building. The transfer of the land will not take place until construction is complete, or five years, whichever happens first.
The fire department’s wish is to have land for the new hall and needs something in writing guaranteeing the land is being held for the new hall. State’s Attorney Tom P. Maher, Rick Cronin and Auditor Burtch will work on verbiage of the agreement.
Rick presented the Commission with plans for fire station #2.
Fairgrounds: Scott Deal stated that the Grandstand needs to have gutters, down spouts and snow gates on the roof. He would also like to put a sidewalk and guard posts along the building leading to the main entrance. Scott received one quote for gutters and will get another one. Scott is working with Cholik Signs on the new sign. The Grant monies the fairgrounds received from FPDC is specific to signage/improvements to outer buildings. Scott presented the Commissioners with a picture of the sign that will be placed on the outer west wall of the Grandstand. It will consist of 4x8 foot sections for the full 160’ of the building. Gutters will increase the life-span of the sign.
Scott would like to put drill stems around the fire hydrants throughout the grounds to protect them and a protective guard around the creek that runs between the barns.
The arena lights need to be updated. LED seem to be the best deal by lasting longer and saving electricity.
Scott has been setting stalls for the 4-H Finals Rodeo. He needs to get more panels for the outside stalls.
RDO: Wade Iszler presented the Commissioners with a proposal for a 2019 John Deere 772G Motor Grader. The snow wing and ripper from the 2012 John Deere 772GP Motor Grader will transfer to the 2019 motor grader. The price bid will expire September 30, 2018. No action taken at this time.
Highway Department: Lee Smith presented the Commissioners with a report of work performed for the month of July, 2018, which includes hauling and laying gravel on multiple roads, weed control, mowing ditches and cleaning out box culvert for bridge inspection on Bad River Road. The gravel crushing project is complete.
Bad River Road – SDDOT Agreement #6792 is an agreement stating that DOT will replace structure number 59-339-327 when inspections indicate it is necessary to do so. Scott Schweitzer stated that the bridge is rated for replacement and the County needs to complete a Federal Aid Bridge Replacement Program Resolution. Then the submittals and design will begin, with the possibility of 2020 replacement.
