Sanborn County Commissioners proceedings

JULY 5, 2022

Sanborn County Commissioners met in regular session on Tuesday, July 5, 2022, at 9:30 a.m., with Chairman Jeff Ebersdorfer presiding. Present were Steve Larson, Paul Larson, Gary Blindauer, and Rod Weber. Auditor Kami Moody was also present, along with Duane Peterson. Motion by P. Larson, seconded by S. Larson, to approve the minutes from the June 21 meeting, as presented. Motion carried.


Kylie Schlenker was present to ask for a donation from the County for his Eagle Scout project. The commissioners will donate $200 for his project.  


Stacy Mendenhall, Highway Superintendent and Sheri Kogel, Highway Administrative Assistant met with the board. Motion by S. Larson, seconded by P. Larson, to enter Weed Board. Discussion was held on the complaints from the amount of muss thistle on a property that was recently given a tax break for being an organic property. A letter was sent to the landowner. Chairman Ebersdorfer declared end of weed board. Highway Budget items were discussed. A bridge in Warren Township was discussed. A program of train-the-trainer is being held by the state; the county will send two of the highway employees for the training. 

Chairman Ebersdorfer exited the meeting at 10 a.m. Vice-Chairman S. Larson was then presiding chair. 


Motion by Blindauer, seconded by P. Larson, to enter executive session, for personal matters, at 11:16 a.m. Vice-Chairman S. Larson declared an end to executive session at 11:24 a.m.


Cora Schwader explained to the board how Miner County dispatch was started and how it is funded. Much discussion was had on how the county’s contributed funds are used in Miner County’s budget. Schwader was thanked for coming to the meeting for a better explanation of how the 911 process works, and the plans moving forward with Sanborn County’s involvement with Miner County Dispatch. 


Motion by P. Larson, seconded by Blindauer, to approve Larry Jirsa as the architect for the 4-H Building Addition project. Motion carried.

Motion by Weber, seconded by S. Larson, to approve the committed funds from the county to come from the Covid funding that was received. Motion carried. With discussion being held on the 4-H Building, since the board has stated that they would pledge $100,000 for the addition, the board will be using American Rescue Plan (COVID) Funds for the county’s pledge. These funds were received by the federal government to be used for expanding, creating bigger space, broadband or water/sewer. The commissioners feel that this project suits the feasibility of the spending required by federal compliance. 


Motion by Blindauer, seconded by P. Larson, to repeal the resolution adopted July 7, 2020. Passing this motion removes the Discretionary Formula on new construction within Sanborn County. Motion carried. This becomes effective August 9, 2022, in relation to 2023 assessment values for taxes payable 2024. Properties currently receiving the Discretionary Formula will be allowed to complete the five-year formula plan.
