August 3rd

County Commissioners’ meeting creates discussion about community development

The August 2nd Haakon County Commissioners’ meeting drew quite a few people as both plans for a new library and ambulance hall were discussed.

Ted Haeder of the Central Enhancement District in Pierre sought approval from the commissioners and feedback from members of the public gathered at the meeting. Among those present were members of the Midland ambulance crew, who were curious as to how the new ambulance hall in Philip was going to be funded and other clarifications.
