/s/ Jeff Ebersdorfer, 

Chairman of Sanborn 

County Commissioners


/s/ Kami Moody,

Sanborn County Auditor


Lori Cowman gave a yearly update to the board regarding what District III offers and how Sanborn County had benefited from their presence, in hopes that Sanborn County can utilize District III even more than the county already does. They offer loans for Governor’s housing, Meat and Poultry Processors Loan Funding, and much more. District III can help with grant writing and submitting for many purposes for Sanborn County and other taxing entities within Sanborn County. More information can be obtained from the Auditor’s office.  


Drainage Board minutes from March 13 were reviewed, discussed, and approved.

The board had discussions about the 4-H building regarding the floors, doors, and a recap of the meeting with Summit Contracting from March 19th. 

There being no further business before the board, motion by S. Larson, seconded by Peterson, to adjourn the meeting at 11:30 a.m. Motion carried. 

The board will meet as a Board of Equalization on April 9, 2024. The next regular scheduled meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 16, 2024.
