Leon Fredrichs and Sharon Fredrichs own property that has a county drainage ditch in it. L. Fredrichs has been to drainage board meetings and met previously with the commissioners, regarding the ditch. Blindauer has had discussions with Scott Groper from NRCS and will continue to work with Groper to compare maps to move forward with where this ditch is located and what the county is responsible for.

All bids were opened regarding the mowing at the 4-H and archery building lots in Forestburg. Motion by P. Larson, seconded by Blindauer, to award the winning bid to Todd Spader for the cost of $345 per mow; motion carried:

Todd Spader – $345;

Fred Knight – $350.


Steve Larson gave an update on behalf of the 4-H leaders, regarding the 4-H Building addition. The leaders are working with an architect and contractors to keep the process moving forward with blueprints to be able to obtain new bids. 


Drainage Board minutes from April 12 were reviewed, discussed, and approved.  

CoreLogic is requesting information from the county’s GIS mapping system. Commissioners were all in agreement to deny CoreLogic the information. They are able to obtain the information as it is if they come retrieve it, without the county doing all the work for them. 

Letters were sent to some landowners in Forestburg regarding their property. A clean-up has been requested. 

An ambulance demo will be at the ambulance shed today (April 18) at 1 p.m. The ambulance crew is exploring options of an upgraded Ambulance rig. Getting a new ambulance is roughly a two-to-four-year process, depending on requests. 

Auditor Moody presented documents to participate in the National Opioid Settlement. Motion by Blindauer, seconded by P. Larson, to approve participation in the continuing National Opioid Settlement and to appoint Moody as the authorized signatory. Motion carried. 

Motion by S. Larson, seconded by Peterson, to continue the agreement with Jerauld County regarding the nurse secretary position. Motion carried. 

District III has requested boundary specifications for coverage areas for Fire Districts and Ambulance since it crosses county lines.
