Notes from Commissioner Robert Heidgerken

August 2, 2017:  The Meade County Commission met one week early this month because of the Sturgis Rally.  Most of the County offices are preparing for this annual event.  The totals of the rally will be out later next week.

The Meade County Fair was held this past week.  Despite the drought - exhibits, venders and attendance were all up from previous years.  Good job Jenny Voigt, SDSU Extension 4-H Youth Program Advisor.  

After a lengthy discussion, a resolution was passed that declares Chaffee Place is not and has never been a public highway.  This will allow the land owners to control the use of this private road.  

We started discussions with RDO Equipment (John Deere) on our leased motors graders, which is up in December of 2019.  This has to be part of 2019 budget discussion next year.  

The highway department is working on replacing culverts all over the County as part of the ongoing maintenance of county roads.  Work is progressing on the Elm Springs Road, with a completion date before school starts.  

Keep cool and pray for rain.  


Commissioner Robert Heidgerken
