Commissioners Proceedings Statement - Monday, September 18, 2017
By James Krotz

Present were Chairman Jack Andersen, Commissioners Loren Paul and James Krotz, County Clerk Sindy Coburn, Treasurer Peg Sones and Assessor Tina Skinner.

Acting as the Board of Equalization (BOE) the Commissioners conducted a valuation hearing on property owned by Neal Brewer.  After reviewing evidence presented the BOE approved a reduced valuation on deteriorated buildings as suggested by the Assessor.  
Wayne Jacobson appeared before the BOE to appeal the denial of his Homestead Exemption.  The Board determined that Mr. Jacobson was not living in Sheridan County as of January 1 and voted to deny his appeal.

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester reported that 99 loads of gravel have been delivered to the Lakeside district by a private hauler.   Twenty four of those loads were applied to 2 local roads by the hauler.  He further reported that  rain in some areas of the county was making it possible to do some grading.  Where surfaces are still very dry grading would damage the road base.

At 10:00 a.m. the Commissioners opened a public hearing on the 2017-18 Proposed Budget.  There was no testimony from the public.  The Commissioners then voted to approve the Proposed Budget, set the tax rate at .367168 and reauthorized a petty cash fund for the County Court of $500.

At 10:30 the Commissioners opened bids for the replacement of the Sheriff’s Office/Jail roof.  Only one bid was received and will be acted upon at the next meeting on September 25.

The Commissioners voted to table consideration of the courthouse window project- attic windows - until September 25.

Ryan Poots of EagleView Technologies made a presentation on Pictometrey.  This computerized aerial photography technology is used by many counties to facilitate the review and updating of property valuations and has also proved useful to road departments, law enforcement, fire departments and weed control.  The Commissioners will consider a proposal from Eagle View at their next meeting.

The next meeting of the Commissioners is scheduled for Monday, September 25.
