New Timber Lake Town Board seated

Members of the new Timber Lake Town Board (L-R) Mike LaCompte, John Linderman, Josh Lemburg, Jess Schlosser, and Tom Hermes were seated at the annual reorganization meeting on Monday night.

The Timber Lake City Council, with Mayor Tim Gunderson presiding for a final time, concluded their governance and the new board of trustees took office on Monday night. The change in format of municipal government was mandated by a vote in the city election last November.

After adjourning as the council, the four elected town board members, Josh Lemburg, Jess Schlosser, Mike LaCompte and Tom Hermes, each took the oath of office.

Outgoing council member Lilian Turcotte was not present, and Gunderson, who lost to Schlosser in an election for a seat on the board, did not stay for the remainder of the meeting.

Hermes nominated John Linderman for the fifth trustee position, a one-year term. Lemburg seconded the motion, which passed.

The board elected Hermes as president, and Lemburg as vice-president.

City clean-up planned for May 5 to11

The City of Timber Lake will have a week-long clean-up effort May 5-11, during which the restricted use site will be open for free dumping from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day.

City Maintenance Manager Brad Kocmich says that designated areas at the site will be marked so that people know where to unload building materials, yard waste, etc. He reminds people that waste materials must be sorted and that certain materials, such as plastic, cannot be accepted. There will be a fee for tires.

Kocmich said there will be curb side pick-up on Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11.

Survey being considered to determine city right-of-way

Some dirt moving and grading at the corner of Eighth and F Streets in Timber Lake last week is intended to reclaim the city right of way. That street is supposed to be 100 feet wide to accommodate drainage, snow removal and parking. Not everyone agrees that it’s necessary.

The Timber Lake City Council is considering having a survey done to show where the right of way is for streets.

Council member Tom Hermes told the council at the April meeting that he gotten had an estimate of about $14,000 for a survey to have the four corners of each block marked.

The council has often discussed reclaiming the right of way where lawns, fences, trees and even some buildings have encroached onto the streets in some areas. In many places, the streets have gotten narrower, largely due to the nature of the sandy soil, which blows and fills in the area that is supposed to be the drainage ditch or space for parking.

Hermes said this week that a survey would be helpful for the sign and delineation project which the SD Dept. of Transportation has planned.

He said that Main Street and 8th Street (the street north of the courthouse going west past the post office) have 100 feet of right-of-way, and other streets have 80 feet of ROW.

Timber Lake city limits include rodeo grounds

At the Timber Lake City Council meeting on April 9, Finance Officer Karla Nordyke reported that recently-discovered county records had revealed that Lots 8 and 9, which includes the rodeo grounds, had been annexed into the city limits in 1950. The lots had been sold by Dewey County to the City in 1946 for $600. The property was sold to the county in December, 2018 to become the site of a new county highway shop.

There is no taxable property in the area but since the rodeo grounds is in the city limits, the Timber Lake Rodeo Association will not need a county license for alcohol sales during the rodeo as it already has a city license.

Isabel Town Board to hold public hearing on TIF district
