Short Meeting For Supervisors On Tuesday Includes Board Appointments

With a procedural type of agenda for the Custer County Board of Supervisors, the final meeting of January took less than an hour to complete.

Zoning Administrator Darci Tibbs appeared in front of the board to ask for the appointment of five individuals to a pair of county boards.

Butch McGinn, Tom Hoff, and Larry Gibbons were all approved to be appointed to the Planning Commission while Greg Kissel and Mike Harvey were appointed to the Board of Adjustments.

According to the Custer County website, the Planning Commission is made up of 9 members.  The Zoning Administrator calls for a meeting when there needs to be any action taken by the Commission. The Board of Zoning Adjustments has 5 members, plus one alternate.  One member must be a member of the Planning Commission.  This quasi-judicial body’s powers include hearing and deciding appeals, map interpretations, and granting variances from the Zoning Regulations.

Custer County Extension Educator Troy Walz presented the annual extension report to the board which, according to Walz, has been taking place since the 1930s. He noted there is a lot of interesting information in the reports from the early submissions on how the county dealt with prairie dogs and more.

The Supervisors also approved the semi-annual report from the Custer County Treasurer’s Office, relocating Road 1075 and Road 1430, and set a public hearing on vacating Road 98 and  Road 208 for February 22 at 10:15 AM.

The next Custer County Board of Supervisors meeting will be held on February 8 at 9 AM.
