School board focuses on new year, new goals

By Bob Johnson

The Timber Lake School Board held their regular meeting on Wednesday of last week.

Joe Locken resigned from his position as Northwest Area Schools Cooperative (NWAS) representative due to a conflict of interest regarding fuel purchased from his service station. This contract does not qualify for a waiver of conflict of interest because Locken’s is the only gas station with hours of business to provide fuel for NWAS vehicles in Isabel. That situation makes the contract a non-competitive award, and not eligible for a waiver. The board appointed Bryce Lindskov to be the NWAS representative, with Jake Kraft as alternate. The new appointment corrects the oversight of Locken’s appointment in last month’s meeting.

Would-be Isabel water users frustrated with lack of progress

Delays in proposed water/sewer projects had potential customers who hope to be placed on municipal utilities wondering what the hold -up was about at Monday’s Isabel town board meeting. John Meginness, who is constructing a new building at his grain bin site, was at the meeting. So were Steve Schweitzer and Robin Miller, residents of the former Frank Fuhrer place. They, along with one other party, are awaiting progress from the town since the board was openly receptive to the projects months ago. Now, they are wondering if there is time to get things done before a freeze this fall.

Wheat harvest near completion during hot temps, lack of rain

Terry and Kevin Johnson of Firesteel were trying to finish wheat harvest Monday, the same as many other farmers in the region. Winter wheat harvest is nearly complete in the state, with many producers reporting better results than last year.

This week’s USDA crop progress report for South Dakota lists spring wheat as 80 percent harvested and winter wheat 97 percent harvested, both well ahead of last year and the average. Regarding yields, the South Dakota Wheat Commission reported this week that farmers are reporting anywhere from 50 to 60 bushels per acre up to 70-80 in certain areas, including around Eagle Butte.

Petition to call for change of governance

Timber Lake is one step closer to changing the form of city government.

City Finance Officer Karla Nordyke told the city council at their meeting Monday night that Margaret Holloman plans to initiate the petition process to change from the mayor and alder form to a board of trustees. The number of trustees was not specified but must be three, four, or five.

The petition requires signatures of at least 15% of the number of registered voters who cast ballots in the last general election —about 45-50. An election must be held within 50 days after the petition is submitted to the council. Nordyke suggested the election might be held the same day as the general election (November 6).
