Council would like to change form of city government

By Kathy Nelson

 

The Timber Lake City Council appointed Tim Gunderson as mayor Monday night, acting on the advice of their attorney, Eric Bogue, to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Clyde Pfeifle last month. Council chairman Mike LaCompte had temporarily taken on some mayoral duties but declined when a motion was made to appoint him as mayor. Council members Tom Hermes and Josh Lemburg also declined. Lemburg said he was not willing to give up his vote. (The mayor votes only in the case of a tie.) Gunderson joined the council in January filling a Ward I vacancy. Jess Schlosser had previously resigned his Ward I post so Gunderson’s appointment as mayor leaves two vacancies in Ward I (east of Main Street).

Voters go to the polls next Tuesday

South Dakota voters will go to the polls next Tuesday, June 5 to choose Democrat and Republican nominees for the November general election.

What’s different about this year’s election is that there will also be a ballot measure decided, something that is usually done in the November general election. The issue is an amendment to the Constitution which was passed by a statewide vote in 2016.

Dewey County has four different ballots: one for Republicans, one for Democrats in Commissioner District 1, a different one for Democrats outside District 1, and one for people of neither party.
