Sheridan County Commissioners’ Meeting Summary
Vaimoana Songer received a certificate recognizing her 15 years of service to the District Clerk’s office.
The Sheridan County Commissioners gathered yesterday for their monthly meeting.
Before getting down to business, Chairman Mike Nickel presented a certificate of appreciation to Vaimoana “Moana” Songer, who has worked in the District Court Clerk’s office for 15 years.
“You’re a bright light for the courthouse and you always have a smile,” Nickel said to Songer, as he handed her the certificate. “Thank you for your service.”
Following that, the Commissioners approved all items on the consent agenda before considering the regular agenda:
- Courthouse closure schedule – approved
- Commission membership assignments – approved; Commissioner Terry Cram thanked Commissioner Bob Rolston for graciously deciding to stay on the Lake DeSmet board. Rolston explained that county membership is not required, but said he is having fun watching Johnson county develop the lake.
- Fox Quarry renewal – approved
- Paradise Estates Subdivision application submitted by Roger St. Clair – approved; Commissioners questioned a provision that required residents to maintain half of the county road. Commissioner Tom Ringley asked what good it does to maintain half a road. St. Clair said maintenance along the road had traditionally been an informal duty shared by neighbors. “Neighborhoods change,” he said. “Hopefully they’re good neighbors.”
- Dunn Farmstead Subdivision – corrected Plat – approved
