Commissioners wrap up year

At their year-end meeting on December 28, the Dewey County Commissioners approved a budget supplement of $100,000 for the 2017 Highway and Bridge Fund, the money to come from cash on hand.

The board also made transfers totaling $30,180 from the commissioners’ contingency fund to meet final 2017 expenses for five budget categories.

Dewey County Sheriff Les Mayer reported on options for a new patrol vehicle to be purchased in 2018. The commissioners authorized the purchase of a Ford pickup to replace the 2013 Ford Explorer, which has 104,000 miles on it. The new vehicle will cost approximately $37,000, and, if ordered soon, will be delivered in the spring. It will be financed through Western Dakota Bank, which had the best interest rate of 3.99%, Mayer said.

Timber Lake School Board discusses taxation, track

When Dist. 28 Sen. Ryan Maher (R-Isabel) and Dist. 28A Rep. Oren Lesmeister (D-Parade) met with the Timber Lake School Board last week, Lesmeister said he thought the legislature could fix the issue of taxation of school-owned rental housing.

The issue arose after a ruling that the Highmore-Harrold School District should be taxed on residential property it rents out. Both the Timber Lake and Eagle Butte school districts own housing which is rented to teachers, which has been exempt from property tax.

The Timber Lake School Board is appealing the change to taxable status to the Dewey County Board of Equalization.
