Coroner Report: Gary Grittner presented the Commissioners with a Year End Report for 2017. The Coroner is called when a death is the result of an accident, homicide or suicide. In 2017, County Coroner Grittner was called to two such cases.
The Coroner’s budget for 2017 was $10,000.00. The amount expended was $129.18. None of the travel and training expenses were charged to the County. Gary will continue to do his best to provide a professional service to the County at the least possible cost.
Coroner Grittner introduced Deputy Coroner Jill Richardson. Deputy Richardson is a very positive asset with all her medical training and experience. Gary and Jill attended training in Sioux Falls. Deputy Cammie Erickson has moved out of Stanley County and stepped down as Deputy. Gary thanked Cammie for her willingness to serve. Gary would like to find another Deputy.
County Access Trail: Robby Calkins explained to the Commissioners that he is fed up with his fences being cut and gates being left open. When this happens and his cattle mix with the neighbors cattle, it could take a couple days to get them sorted and in their own pastures again. He is tired of the Jones County trucks going through whenever they want to, they used to ask.
Frank Iversen stated the trail has been in existence for at least 73 years, that he can remember. Frank moves his cattle across Calkins land when the Bad River is up, it’s the only way.
Tom P. Maher explained to Mr. Calkins that he needs to make the people accountable for the damages they cause. As for the County trucks, Stanley County will contact Jones County regarding better communication with Mr. Calkins when they are planning to haul gravel across the trail. Mr. Calkins would like some respect shown for himself and his property.
