Andrew S. Wilka, Attorney with Wilka & Welter, LLP, presented a request for compromise of lien on behalf of their client for DPNO 1101 in the amount of $6,707.29. The lien is for public defender services and human services assistance between 1983 and 2008. The applicant has been offered a $10,000 settlement from a motor vehicle accident. Mr. Wilka indicated that the settlement amount is approximately $4,100 short of covering all expenses and debts related to the accident. The applicant receives $7,212.00 in annual disability benefits and his wife has an annual income of $23,000. The applicant lists total assets of $360 and liabilities of approximately $4,000. He is requesting a compromise and release of the lien in full upon payment of $1,000 or a release of the lien as it pertains to the insurance settlement upon payment of $1,000 leaving the balance of the lien in place against the applicant. Commissioner Barth stated that the income tax information provided by the applicant did not have the earned income amount or the refund amount included, which sometimes can be a significant amount of money. MOTION by Barth, seconded by Beninga to approve a compromise of lien only as it pertains to the insurance settlement upon payment of $1,000. Commissioners Beninga and Kelly also questioned why a complete tax return was not provided by the applicant. Barth withdrew his motion.

Shore Pl., Hartford, SD, spoke in opposition of having the private access road restored. Rhonda Milstead, 46273 Park Pl., Hartford, SD, stated that four homeowners signed a mutual driveway easement running through private property to serve as access to their homes. The access has never been defined as a road. Ms. Milstead submitted a copy of the easement. Les Feiock, 46269 Park Pl., Hartford, SD, stated that in case of an emergency, he has no problem with fire and ambulance vehicles going through his property, however; it is not a roadway and he is not turning his private property into a public thoroughfare. Chairman Heiberger asked that the County Planning & Zoning Department and the State's Attorney's Office to determine what responsibility the County has in the matter and to keep Mr. & Mrs. Boice informed.

Michelle Boyd, Chief Deputy Sheriff, was present for the scheduled hearing to consider the 2014 Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Joint Spending Plan. The City of Sioux Falls and Minnehaha County will be receiving an allocation of $70,599 for the 2014 program. Under the joint Interlocal Agreement, the county will receive $24,710 to be used to purchase a single gas launcher, flash noise diversionary devices, ammunition, office furniture, and training. The city will utilize their funding in the amount of $45,889 for purchasing Taser X2 conducted electrical weapons. MOTION by Barth, seconded by Beninga to approve the 2014 Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Joint Spending Plan and to authorize the Chairman to sign the Interlocal Agreement between the City of Sioux Falls and Minnehaha County for the 2014 Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program Award. 4 ayes.
David Heinold, Planner I, was present for the public hearing and gave a briefing on Drainage Permit Application #13-61 from John Zomer to conduct agricultural drainage on property legally described as NW 1/4 (Ex Ry & Ex Sabers Addn & Ex N 660' W 660') in Section 1-T102N-R48W. On September 13, 2013, the Planning Department approved Drainage Permit #13-61. A Drainage Board Hearing is required because an official complaint was submitted by downstream landowners Daniel and Betty Irvine. They are concerned that dumping water and chemicals from drain tiling will cause chemical pollution in their wells. On May 28, 2014, staff conducted a site visit and determined that the location of the drainage tile allows water to continue to flow into the intermittent stream directly connected to Split Rock Creek. Staff recommends approval of Drainage Permit #13-61. Kersten Kappmeyer, Chief Civil Deputy State's Attorney, stated that this complaint is not timely under Article 1 of the County Drainage Ordinance which states appeals must be filed within 5 days of the permit being issued. Mr. Kappmeyer also stated that the Commission may elect to exercise jurisdiction over this complaint under Article 4 of the County Drainage Ordinance, however; by doing so they are committing themselves to making this a forum for resolving complaints regarding all existing approved permits. If the Commission declines to exercise jurisdiction under Article 4, any landowner may take a drainage dispute to circuit court. Scott Anderson, Planning & Zoning Director, recommended that the Commission not exercise jurisdiction over this complaint. MOTION by Kelly, seconded by Beninga, to decline to hear the matter due to the un-timeliness of the appeal under Article 1 and to decline to exercise jurisdiction under Article 4. Dan Irvine, 48343 256th St., Garretson, SD stated he was never notified that the permit was being issued, so how would he be able to file an appeal within five days of when it was issued? Mr. Irvine spoke about his concern with his well being contaminated. John Zomer, 26326 487th Ave., Valley Springs, stated the drain tile pipe was delivered to his property where it sat all winter long, and Mr. Irvine did not file a complaint until after he had the drain tile installed. VOTE on motion, 4 ayes.
David Heinold, Planner I, was present for the public hearing and gave a briefing on Drainage Permit Application #14-20 from Stanley Hanson and Pete Johnson to conduct agricultural drainage on property legally described as W 1/2 NW 1/4 (Ex Tr 1 Johnson Addn) and W 1/2 SW 1/4 in Section 36 of Edison Township. On May 1, 2014, the Planning Department approved Drainage Permit #14-20 to install drainage tile to increase agricultural production and reduce potential erosion on the property. The new tile would be connected with existing drainage tile in the NW 1/4 of Section 1 in Brandon Township. Since the proposed tile connects with existing tile that outlets into an intermittent stream and the outlet is within one mile of Split Rock Creek, the applicant was not required to obtain downstream permission. A Drainage Board Hearing is required because an appeal of an administrative decision was submitted by downstream property owners Daniel and Betty Irvine who live at 48343 256th St., Garretson, SD. They are concerned that dumping water and chemicals from drain tiling will cause chemical pollution in their wells. On May 28, 2014, staff conducted a site visit and determined that the proposed tile lines are being placed in traditionally wet areas where water flows naturally. The applicants plan to connect the tile lines with an existing bore under 256th St. to the existing tile south of 256th St. Staff finds the proposed tile lines should allow water to continue to flow into the intermittent stream which connects with Split Rock Creek and is recommending approval of Drainage Permit #14-20. Applicant Pete Johnson, 48320 255th St., Garretson, SD stated there will be clean filtered water coming through the drain tile and less runoff water. Mr. Johnson also stated that the tile is on quartzite, and he feels the water will not run up hill and contaminate Mr. Irvine's well. Applicant Stan Hanson, 48324 253rd St., Garretson, SD, stated that from his experience with tiling projects, the soil profile can actually hold more water in large rain events. Opponent Dan Irvine spoke in regard to concerns over his well being contaminated. Mr. Irvine stated his well water tested at 7 parts per million for nitrates approximately 10 years ago, and he has just recently submitted another sample to be tested and is expecting the results back in 7 to 14 days. John Zomer, 26326 487th Ave., Valley Springs, stated he has no inclination that Mr. Irvine's well will be contaminated due to the tiling project. MOTION by Kelly, seconded by Barth, to approve drainage permit #14-20. 4 ayes.
Jeff Gromer, Warden, gave a briefing on an amendment to the contract between Minnehaha County and Armor Correctional Health Services (ACHS) regarding staffing of the Medical Director Position. ACHS is proposing to utilize the Center for Family Medicine to provide 16 hours per week of physician time through Dr. Jean Heisler and the resident program. In addition to the physician coverage, ACHS proposes the employment of a Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant to provide an additional 16 hours per week. Dr. Hesler will function as the facility Medical Director and provide the supervision for the midlevel provider. The Center for Family Medicine is willing to provide the physician and Medical Director coverage for $150 per hour, clinical supervision of the Nurse Practitioners or Physician's Assistant for $1,500 per month and the on call coverage for no additional charge. The Nurse Practitioner or Physician's Assistant will work for $50-$60 per hour. The combined salary compensation of all providers involved is $184,400 - $192,720 per year. MOTION by Beninga, seconded by Barth, to authorize the Chairman to sign the contract amendment regarding staffing of the Medical Director Position as presented. 4 ayes.
Jason Reaves, Sr. Project Engineer, gave a briefing on change order #2 to the contract with Prahm Construction for Project MC121STR-13. The change order is for additional structure removal of old bridge decks and footings that were buried in the streambeds, and new backfill material for the two bridge reconstructions on Highway 121. The change order will increase the contract by $43,700 and extend the completion date by two weeks and one day. MOTION by Barth, seconded by Kelly to approve Change Order #2 to the contract with Prahm Construction for Project MC121STR-13 resulting in a new contract amount of $1,100,598.40 and completion deadline of October 3, 2014. 4 ayes.
Ken McFarland, Commission Administrative Officer, presented the 2014 detoxification program funding with the City of Sioux Falls. Due to the implementation of the new contract and detox program with Armor Correctional Health Services, Inc., finalization of the 2014 contract with the City of Sioux Falls was delayed. This resulted in a 10 month contract at a lower cost to the City. Under the terms of the agreement the City will pay the County $157,500 in twelve monthly installments of $13,125. The city will issue a check for the period of time from January 1, thru the present. It is anticipated that the County will receive approximately $131,000 in State funds for the detoxification program that will be applied to the contract with Armor Correctional Health Services, Inc. in addition to City and County funds. MOTION by Barth, seconded by Kelly, to authorize the Chairman to sign the 2014 Agreement for Detoxification Services between the City of Sioux Falls and Minnehaha County. 4 ayes.
Commissioner Kelly left the meeting.

Text Messaging for Community Messages: The council heard a presentation from Mr. Marc Rassmussen of My Town Text. The program allows citizens to sign-up to receive city text messages and can reply to the sender. Sortable messages based on snow removal, pool closures, special events, etc. Cost is $50 per month and .04 per text sent or received.
Planning & Zoning - Covered Decks on Rear Property and Accessory Structures on Adjoining Lots: Weiland explained that a resident had covered their rear porch without first obtaining a building permit at city hall. Resident was notified by Building Inspector. Councilman Crisp became involved in the situation and requested placement on the agenda. Discussion regarding the deck, centered on the intent of the homeowner three years ago and the changes in the ordinance between when the home was built in 2011 and today. City Attorney Hammer stated that: A building permit is only good for 180 days and a new permit was necessary; under the current ordinance the structure is not permitted; and in the year 2011 the ordinances would have allowed only a roof and not a three season room. At this point the penalty would be double the original building permit and/or an application for a variance.
Accessory structures being placed on adjoining lots was questioned by Crisp as being interpreted correctly. Hammer and Weiland explained that in the situation in question, it is one parcel with a home on one lot and a garage on another. Zoning Ordinance defines a lot as a parcel of land and an accessory structure is a permitted use within an R-1 district.
Visitors to be heard: None.
Veterans Park Improvements: Mike Geraets reported that plans are moving forward for improvements planned at Veterans Park.
City Administrators Report - Weiland reported on the following:

LIEN COMPROMISE (deferred from 6/10/2014)
Commissioner Pekas gave a briefing on a request for compromise of lien that was deferred from the June 10, 2014 commission meeting so a complete copy of the applicant's tax return could be obtained. Andrew S. Wilka, Attorney with Wilka & Welter, LLP, submitted a request for compromise of lien on behalf of their client for DPNO 1101 in the amount of $6,707.29. The lien is for public defender services and human services assistance between 1983 and 2008. The applicant has been offered a $10,000 settlement from a motor vehicle accident. The settlement amount is approximately $4,100 short of covering all expenses and debts related to the accident. The applicant receives $7,212.00 in annual disability benefits and his wife has an annual income of $23,000. Recently submitted 2013 tax return documents show the applicant and his wife received an income tax return in the amount of $9,826. The applicant lists total assets of $360 and liabilities of approximately $4,000. He is requesting a compromise and release of the lien in full upon payment of $1,000 or a release of the lien as it pertains to the insurance settlement upon payment of $1,000 leaving the balance of the lien in place against the applicant. MOTION by Pekas, seconded by Beninga to approve Resolution MC14-30. 4 ayes.

If payment is not made within one year from approval, this agreement is null and void.
Dated at Sioux Falls, South Dakota, this 17th day of June, 2014.
Deputy County Auditor
Pam Nelson, Treasurer, reported that the state computer system was down for four hours yesterday, June 16, 2014, and also stated one of her employees was stranded in her car last night because of road closures due to flooding from the heavy rains. Ms. Nelson stated she thinks there needs to be a better way of letting employees know if they should go home early or if they should stay and not go home during severe weather situations.
Lynn DeYoung, Emergency Management Director, Mike Milstead, Sheriff, D.J. Buthe, Highway Superintendent, and Darin Ketcham, Metro Communications Director, gave updates and commented on issues associated with the April 16, 2014 severe weather.
Robert Wilson, Assistant Commission Administrative Officer, commented on current county policy regarding severe weather and stated if there is something more that could be done, they would be happy to have that conversation.
Lynn DeYoung, Emergency Management Director, gave a briefing on the State and Local Agreement with the State of South Dakota to be used to support salary and administrative expenses within the Minnehaha County Emergency Management Office. This is a 50% reimbursement grant and requires a 50% match from the county. This year's grant amount is $227,360.22. In past years the grant amount has been greater than what is needed to support salary and administrative expenses within the county. Mr. DeYoung stated he will develop a list of special projects that may be funded with the remaining amount. MOTION by Pekas, seconded by Beninga, to authorize the Chairman and Emergency Management Director to sign the 2014 Emergency Management State and Local Agreement Addendum between the State of South Dakota and Minnehaha County in the amount of $227,360.22. 4 ayes.
Scott Anderson, Planning & Zoning Director, was present for the public hearing and gave a briefing on an appeal filed by Robert Schulte of a decision by the Planning Commission to approve Conditional Use Permit (CUP) #14-22 (with eight conditions) issued to Mark Schoenfelder to allow mini-storage units on the property legally described as Lot 1, Block 3 of Brower's 2nd Addition, SW 1/4 of Section 27-T102N-R51W. Mr. Schulte is appealing the decision to approve CUP #14-22 due to concerns about the condition of the road and drainage issues. Mark Schoenfelder, 26138 463rd Ave., Hartford, SD, was present and stated landowners need to do their part to keep culverts and ditches clean to allow water to drain properly and also keep their property graded properly. Mr. Schoenfelder showed pictures of water standing in front of Mr. Schulte's property and of a culvert on the property that appears to not be draining properly. Mr. Schoenfelder stated that the road district is not doing anything to improve the road conditions in the development. Kersten Kappmeyer, Chief Civil Deputy State's Attorney, stated road districts are entities that are formed whose limited purpose is building and maintain roads. Mr. Kappmeyer also stated that the county cannot forcibly tax people in road districts. No one spoke in opposition to the approval of the CUP. MOTION by Beninga, seconded by Pekas, to deny the appeal and approve CUP #14-22 with the 8 conditions. Mr. Schoenfelder stated that he applied for the CUP in the first week in April and requested more time to comply with condition #6 that requires hard surface parking. SUBSTITUTE MOTION by Beninga, seconded by Pekas, to deny the appeal and approve CUP #14-22 and the 8 conditions with a change to the deadline date for condition #6 to November 1, 2015. 4 ayes.
Robert Wilson, Assistant Commission Administrative Officer, reported that the Multi-Cultural Center is offering a Commissioner to serve on their Board of Directors for a three year term. They hope to fill the position as soon as possible. Commissioners discussed the possibility of appointing someone to serve the remainder of 2014 and then make an annual appointment in January of each year when the other appointments are made.
Kersten Kappmeyer, Chief Civil Deputy State's Attorney, presented an agreement between Minnehaha County and Luke Yellow Robe to provide the Qualified Expert Witness service effective June 1, 2014 thru May 31, 2015. The Indian Child Welfare Act requires an expert witness in cases where placement of Native American Children in non-Indian homes is possible. The State of South Dakota contracts with Minnehaha County for this service and the amount paid to Mr. Yellow Robe matches the amount paid to the County by the State. Under the terms of the current agreement Luke Yellow Robe will be paid the sum of $102,144 for the one-year term payable in four quarterly installments, with the first payment due upon funds being received by the county from the State of South Dakota. This is a 3.3% increase over the prior year. MOTION by Pekas, seconded by Beninga, to authorize the Chairman to sign the agreement with Luke Yellow Robe for Qualified Expert Witness Service. 4 ayes.
Robert Wilson, Assistant Commission Administrative Officer, gave a briefing on an agreement between Minnehaha County and Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center for court-ordered psychological evaluations of indigent defendants in criminal proceedings. These evaluations have been performed at the Human Services Center (HSC) in Yankton at a cost of $600 per evaluation. The HSC will perform three evaluations per month for each county in the state. This is not sufficient for the volume of activity in Minnehaha County and currently there is a back log of scheduled evaluations resulting in a delay in court proceedings. In order to obtain evaluations on a timely basis, staff has negotiated a contract with Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center to perform these evaluations.
