FALL RIVER COUNTY RESOLUTION # 2017-29

EMERGENCY DROUGHT DISASTER RESOLUTION

WHEREAS, the vast majority of Fall River County has failed to receive adequate precipitation for the preceding twelve month period, and

WHEREAS, the lack of precipitation over the past years has created a catastrophic state of drought, and

WHEREAS, the drought conditions have had an enormous effect on the production capabilities of the agricultural industry, which in turn severely affects the entire local economy, and

WHEREAS, the lack of consistent precipitation has resulted in the lack of rain water runoff and therefore caused livestock ponds, dams, wells and natural water holes to dry up, and

WHEREAS, the grass, what there is of it, in the pastures in the county is bone dry, and quickly allows the start and spread of wild fires thus making containment almost impossible, and

WHEREAS, the local volunteer fire departments have almost depleted their resources in quelling wild fires, and

WHEREAS, the lack of dependable precipitation has resulted in record low subsoil moisture and has caused the water table to drop significantly,

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the Fall River County Commissioners declare that current drought conditions have created a natural disaster within Fall River County, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that both farmers/ranchers and local businesses may be eligible for disaster aid grants and/or low interest Economic Injury Disaster loans from the Farm Services Agency and Small Business Administration Agency retroactive to January 1, 2017, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of County Commissioners for and on behalf of the citizens of Fall River County, request that the Governor of the State of South Dakota petition the Secretary of Agriculture to declare Fall River County a drought disaster area, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that an Emergency exists in Fall River County and this Resolution shall be in effect from and after its publication and this action is necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety.

Dated this 26th day of September, 2017.

Discussion was held about additional drought and soil moisture monitoring locations. Falkenburg noted Don Anderson in the Edgemont area and John Sides in the Smithwick area are willing to do drought monitoring.

Maynard also gave updates on Commodity Flow Study, SLA Reimbursement, SDEMA Conference and fires and incidents.

Randy and Gwen Stombaugh, Ryan Walz, Jacki Conlon and John Renstrom were present to discuss the Hot Springs Ambulance District. Renstrom noted how he promised people when he circulated petitions to form the district that there would be 3rd party billing only. The Stombaughs, Conlon, and Walz described how the service and district works, that 3rd party billing was never promised by them, and they are following the South Dakota codified laws.

Paul Nabholz, Commissioner, spoke briefly on learning of surplus property and taxes at the South Dakota Convention. If the county would use realtors rather than an auction series, they can do better.

Break was taken at 10:23 a.m. Meeting resumed at 10:31 a.m.

Joe Falkenburg, Commissioner, spoke of county land use plans. Ranchers want more input on use of lands that border federal property, and he believes that there will be issues coming up in the next couple of months.

Dusty Pence met with the board to discuss video recording of meetings. Pence carried an informal petition around Hot Springs and collected 224 signatures in favor of video recording. Pence asked the board to please reconsider video recording their meetings. Discussion was held, with Nabholz being in favor of this; it was also questioned if recording would be allowed in the courtroom. A discussion would need to be held with the court system. No action was taken.

Pat Ginsbach, Attorney, representing the Paha Sapa Foundation and Mike Ortner, Attorney, met with the board. Ginsbach presented documents which outlined an error in the indexing of a deed to Fall River County for 5 acres back in 1940. The property was to be for acres north of SD State Hwy 71, but indexed as south of the highway on property owned by the Paha Sapa Foundation. Ginsbach asked the board to execute a Corrective Quit Claim Deed to Paha Sapa Foundation for the acres south of the highway. Discussion was held. Ortner noted this would put the Foundation property back on the tax rolls. Commissioners questioned whether the county would then own the property north of the highway, if not, who now owns that property, which is now Quality Real Estate. Or, if a trade could be made.

Motion made by Nabholz that subject to receiving a Quit Claim deed for the five acres north of the highway, approve a Corrective Quit Claim deed to Paha Sapa Foundation for the five acres south of SD State Hwy 71. Ginsbach advised that his client does not own 5 acres north of the highway to deed to the county, and after clearing the title, then ownership north of the highway acres could be determined. State’s Attorney Jim Sword also noted that it was a clerical issue on the deed, and the county should clear the title for Paha Sapa, and then pursue ownership on the north side of highway. Motion died for lack of a second.

Motion made by Russell, seconded by Allen to approve the Chairman to execute a Corrective Quit Claim Deed conveying whatever interest the county may have in the five acres south of SD State Highway 71 to the Paha Sapa Foundation. Ginsbach will prepare the deed for the Chairman’s signature. With Nabholz voting no, all other voting yes, motion carries.

Joe Falkenburg gave a short brief on the need to recognize mental health, with hopes to help individuals and prevent suicide.

The 5 Year Transportation Plan hearing was held as advertised. Ross Eberle, Brosz Engineering Inc, was present to go through the plan review with the Commissioners and public. The Argentine Bridge has been approved for the BIG Grant, the Chilson Bridge and Provo Road should be complete in 2019. The Oral Bridge and other is being kept up through preservation. The Cheyenne River Bridge is continued to be listed, but has been closed. The Buffalo Gap Bridge needs better analysis for action. Discussion was held on chip sealing versus gravel on certain roads. On the revenue side, it was noted STP Funding would not be enough to maintain asphalts on all the roads with asphalt. Discussion was held on traffic counts on roads and recent requests for black top on the Smithwick and Angostura, Pirates Road East. The Chairman asked for any additional questions or public comment on the 5 year plan, which there was none.

During public comment, Nabholz questioned whether the new water project that had been proposed at the previous meeting was able to cross state line; this is allowable due to federal funding. Fall River Users pipeline also crosses state lines.

Motion made by Russell, seconded by Nabholz to remove from the table the levy resolution approved at the September 5, 2017 meeting.

Motion made by Russell, seconded by Abbott, to approve the levy resolution as follows:
