    Drainage: Chairman Stengel adjourned the Board of Commissioners and convened the commission acting as the Drainage Board. The Drainage Officer presented the following permits.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-25 by Chris Zubke in the E1/2SW1/4 of Section 16, Township 121, Range 47 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Big Stone Township) The request, if granted, would improve cropland.  Drainage Officer Atyeo-Gortmaker presented the permit for the ½ acre existing ditch conversion to tile with the wetland determination and adjoining landowner signature on file as an approvable permit using the 50 foot setback and existing culvert.
    During the public testimony, Kathy Tyler handed out information from the Des Moines Register from 2015 and followed up with excerpts from other publications. Tyler believes pig manure should not be applied to tiled ground and cover crops are necessary for filtration. She urged the Drainage Board to attach conditions to the permit for water monitoring of nitrates and phosphates.  
    Dale Tuchscherer addressed the Board on the tile line he installed 2 years ago to handle the water runoff from north of his residence. He stated the tile is just starting to work and not fully operational yet. He does not believe the creek can handle any more water and he does not want any more water going through his land. Ann Tuchscherer also concluded with concerns for erosion into the creek. At the conclusion of the testimony, Jerry Zubke withdrew the permit request citing the neighbor’s concern for the tile conversion as his reason for withdrawal.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-30 by Bruce Granquist SW1/4 of Section 15, Township 119, Range 49 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Madison Township) The request, if granted, would improve cropland and connect in a cooperative effort with DR2019-27.
    Atyeo-Gortmaker presented the request as a part of a cooperative project with several neighbors. Commissioner Street began speaking about the project and then recused himself as he is a member of the cooperative project for a permit to be before the board at this meeting. The ROW occupancy permit for crossing the road will be heard later on the agenda by the Commission. The adjoining landowner is a party to the permit from earlier approval, the NRCS wetland determination is on file. No public comment was received. Motion by Tostenson and seconded by Buttke to approve DR2019-30 as presented. Motion carried 4-0.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-31 by William Street NE1/4 of Section 34, Township 119, Range 49 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Madison Township) The request, if granted, would reduce mud holes and make the land more suitable to farm. Commissioner Street remained recused. NRCS wetland determination had been obtained, the tile will remain on his own property in the blue line and will not be going through a road. Commissioner Buttke had made a visit to the area and gave his opinion to approve the permit with the stipulation that work stays away from the Right of Way. No public comment was offered. Motion by Buttke and seconded by Mach to approve DR2019-31 with the condition as stated by Buttke. Motion carried 4-0. Street returned to the meeting as a member.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-32 by Gregory Kasuske in the SE1/4 of Section 4, Township 120, Range 49 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Grant Center Township) The request, if granted, would improve tillable ground. This project will go into a previously installed tile by pattern tiling to the main line and flowing into a blue line creek. All information for this permit is on record and is approvable. No public comment was offered. Motion by Tostenson and seconded by Mach to approve DR2019-32 as presented. Motion carried 5-0.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-33 by Gerald and Leslie Peters in the NE1/4NW1/4 & NW1/4NE1/4 of Section 16, Township 121, Range 48 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Melrose Township) The request, if granted, would allow for spring runoff and to plant in a timely manner.
    This ditch conversion would allow surface water to be placed into a permitted tile located to the south of this property as a cooperative project. Chairman Stengel relinquished the Chair and Vice Chairman Mach assumed the Chair. Commissioner Stengel recused himself from the meeting because he is the adjoining landowner to the project. The NRCS wetland determination is on file and the adjoining landowner’s agreement of support of the permit is on file.
    During the public hearing comment period, Ben and Kaylee Arlt objected to the tile permit as it would flood the blue line that travels through their acreage and they need the land useable for their animals and the livelihood of their family. They believe this tile would significantly increase the flow of water to flood their land. After clarification of the direction of water flow for this drainage tile going to the south into the Stengel tile line which was permitted previously, the Arlt’s continued by stating the water from the blue line creek in which their livelihood and the existence of their family farm relies would be significantly reduced. They need the water for their livestock that they rely on for income and this tile would remove the water from the blue line.  
    Motion by Street and seconded by Buttke to table the permit until the October 1 meeting to allow the parties involved to meet at the Drainage office to discuss tile size and location of installation prior to the next meeting. Motion carried 4-0.
    Vice Chairman Mach vacated the Chairman position and Commissioner Stengel assumed the Chair for the remainder of the meeting.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-34 and DR2019-35 by Leslie Peters and Gary & Cheryl Lindeman in Section 3, Township 121, Range 48 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Melrose Township) The request, if granted, would allow more land to farm during wet years.
    This is a joint cooperative project for tile line installations and would promote a correction of the Lindeman tile project from 2005 with cooperation to outlet to the blue line creek with tile lines in patterns throughout the west part of the properties. Adjoining landowners are working together and staying within their own land, the wetland determinations are on file and there are not any road crossings to be considered. This is a full and approvable permit. During the public comment period, Kathy Tyler states that she wants the Board to remember Randy Schmieg’s concerns on drainage. Also, a letter was received from Floyd and Bernard Hermans requesting no tile and to keep the drainage natural. After further discussion, it was moved by Mach and seconded by Tostenson to approve DR2019-34 and DR2019-35 as presented. Motion carried 5-0.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-36 by Doug Wollschlager in SW1/4 of Section 10, Township 119, Range 47 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Vernon Township) The request, if granted, would improve the land. This cooperative project goes into the Loehrer and Will tiles with their approval on file. The ROW occupancy application will be heard later for the road bore. Determinations are on file and this is an approvable permit. No comment from the public was heard. Motion by Street and seconded by Mach to approve DR2019-36 as presented. Motion carried 5-0.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-37 by William Street in S1/2 NE1/4 of Section 16, Township 119, Range 49 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Madison Township) The request, if granted, would improve the land. Street recuses himself as he is involved in this cooperative permit. The Drainage Officer presented the permit as being in order like in the earlier presented permits for this group project. Buttke stated he had made a visit to the location and recommends approval with the statement that they should stay out of the right of way with their work. Motion by Buttke and seconded by Tostenson to approve DR2019-37 with the condition all work stays out of the ROW. Motion carried 4-0.  Commissioner Street rejoined the Drainage Board.
    Drainage Permit DR2019-38 by Doug Schneck, in the S1/2 SE1/4 of Section 31, Township 120, Range 48 West of the 5th Principal Meridian, Grant County, South Dakota. (Alban Township) The request, if granted, would improve the ditch erosion. The permit would convert a ditch that is currently washing out to tile. The permit is in order with wetland determination and adjoining landowner signature of Alan Schneck on file. This permit is recommended for approval. No public comment was offered. Motion by Street and seconded by Mach to approve DR2019-38 as presented. Motion carried 5-0.
    Drainage Officer Atyeo-Gortmaker informed the Board a request had been presented to her for the installation of a culvert from Tom Wollschlager. This is a new culvert installation and in accordance to the FEMA requirements, any change affecting drainage should be presented to the Drainage Board.  Since no one was present from the township board, it was moved by Tostenson and seconded by Mach to table the request until the October 1 meeting. Motion carried 5-0.  
    This concluded the business for the Drainage Board. Chairman Stengel adjourned the Drainage Board and reconvened the Board of Commissioners.
    Tax Deed Sale: The tax deed sale was held at 9 AM on the first floor of the courthouse. At the public auction the following property was sold.
    Milbank: Parcel 26.00.56.07, Legal Description: Lot 7, Block 56, Original Townsite, City of Milbank. Sold to Kevin and Angel Mueller for $3,100.00.
    Milbank: Parcel 26.00.65.12, Legal Description: Lot 12, Block 65, Original Townsite, City of Milbank. Sold to Kevin and Angel Mueller for $1,000.00.
    Highway: Supt. Schultz requested approval for ROW occupancy applications from Doug Wollschlager and Bruce Granquist to either bore under or cut through the county road for their tiling project. Motion by Mach and seconded by Tostenson to approve ROW 2019-15 for Doug Wollschlager, Section 10 and 11, Township 119, Range 47, (Vernon) on 482nd Ave (Co. Rd 35) as presented by Supt Schultz. Motion carried 5-0. Motion by Mach and seconded by Street to approve ROW 2019-16 for Bruce Granquist in Section 15 and 16, Township 119, Range 49, (Madison) on 475th Ave (Co. Rd 25) as presented by Supt Schultz. Motion carried 5-0.
    Kaufman Slough: Supt. Schultz asked what direction the Commission is going to take with the Kaufman Slough water issue. Commissioner Street spoke on lowering the water level for the township and the county road with removing the tile installed by the county in the ROW and having an open ditch on the west side of the county road.  Supt Schultz reported he is still working on obtaining the elevation shots from Banner Engineering. The tile will be checked for any obstruction preventing the drainage flow of water.  
    480th Ave. by Jim Cummins: Supt. Schultz stated he had inspected the road and the intersection of 480th and 150th St. for a solution to traffic concerns. He suggested to install a stop ahead sign by the hill east of 480th Ave and a cross road sign south of 150th St and 480th Ave for north bound traffic.  Motion by Tostenson and seconded by Buttke to approve the sign installation as recommended by Supt. Schultz. Motion carried 5-0.
    BIG Award: The SD Transportation Commission approved two BIG grants in the amount of $20,100 each for the Preliminary Design for bridges #26-320-053 and 26-310-056.
    FEMA: The County has one bridge site that qualified for FEMA reimbursement funds from the March Disaster Event of 2019. The bridge is 26-330-107 located 4 miles southeast of Milbank between 152nd and 153rd St. on 482nd Ave. The Federal share award is $20,000 for the restoration of the bridge. Motion by Mach and seconded by Tostenson to approve Chairman Stengel to sign the State of SD Dept of Transportation Joint Powers Force Account Agreement for FEMA Project number ER6311 (10) PCN 07FQ for $20,000. Motion carried 5-0.
    5 Year Plan: The Commission reviewed the revised 5 Year Highway Plan based on the changes to the 2020 budget. The changes include the cost for health insurance reduced by $19,387, adding $35,000 due to the running rate of diesel, adding $175,000 for additional graveling, and adding $216,000 in contract labor as the county has to pay the project cost for the plans ready grant and then apply for reimbursement from the State. This is a net change in expense of $401,406.  The projected Road Levy for the County portion of $276,064 was moved from the General fund to be a designated source of revenue for the Highway Fund.  Reduced revenue by $16,000 as the exchange of labor with Deuel County for seal coating is not scheduled for 2020. The operating transfer of $2,033,966 from General Fund to the Highway Fund is needed to support the budget expense of $4,725,796. Motion by Mach and seconded by Buttke to adopt the 5 Year Plan as presented and to adopt the following resolution. Motion carried 5-0. Resolution adopted.
