PUBLIC COMMENT

Theresa Pesce, Sioux Falls, SD, spoke about the transparency of election expenses especially the increase in the budget over the last few years, some companies that sell election equipment are also being in charge of the security and the need for a third party in charge of the security, and the electronic poll books would be easy hacked to share how the votes were casted by an individual voter. 

Gary Meier, Hartford Township, spoke about the City of Hartford’s plans to construct a regional wastewater treatment facility and not informing the residents near the site about the potential plans and there are other options that could be explored by the City of Hartford and other impacted parties. 

BRIEFING

Ben Kyte, Auditor, provided a briefing on the Medical Cannabis Dispensary Applications. The timeline for accepting applications for the Medical Cannabis License as November 29th to December 13th at 5:00 p.m. During that time the Auditor’s Office received four (4) applications. On December 13th, the Auditor’s Office posted a notice of the selection process on the county’s website as required by Ordinance 60-21. The selection of the order in which applications will be considered for a Medical Cannabis Dispensary License was held on December 17th at 9:00 a.m. in the Minnehaha County Commission Chambers. The ordinance allows for a 60-day review period of the applications, after the random selection was completed. Once the application review is completed, the Auditor’s Office will bring forward to the Commission the application with highest ranked order from the random selection process that is compliant with the ordinance and the review period would end on February 15, 2022. 

PUBLIC HEARING

Kevin Hoekman, Planner, was present for the scheduled hearing on a complaint on the property legally described as E1/4 NE1/4 (Ex. Coverts Addn.) Section 11-T102N-R52W, Humboldt Township, a Public Nuisance and Enact SDCL 21-10-06. The County Commission held an initial nuisance hearing on October 19, 2021 and gave the property owner until December to have the nuisance addressed. The updated pictures were taken on December 15 show that the property condition was nearly the same as when staff visited the site in October. 

Chair Karsky asked for proponents and opponents to speak on the public nuisance complaint.

Keith Dement, property owner, addressed the Commission about the condition of the property.  He explained that the inoperable and unlicensed vehicles have been removed from the property, the small storage building is being used by the family for 4-H projects, and the grain bin will be removed from the site but no timetable was given. Mr. Dement stated that he was not running a business on the property other agricultural activities. 

MOTION by Bender, seconded by Heiberger, to defer the declaration of the property legally described as E1/4 NE1/4 (Ex. Coverts Addn.) Section 11-T102N-R52W, Humboldt Township, a Public Nuisance Until January 11, 2022. By roll call vote: 4 ayes.

BOARD APPOINTMENTS

Scott Anderson, Planning Director, gave a briefing on the three applications received for appointment for two members to the Planning Commission. MOTION by Barth, seconded by Brender, to appoint Rebecca Randall and Adam Mohrhauser to the Minnehaha County Planning Commission for a five-year term beginning on January 1, 2022. 5 ayes. 

ZONING APPEAL

Commissioner Bender excused herself from the meeting at 9:55 a.m.

Kevin Hoekman, Planner, gave a briefing on an appeal of a decision by the Minnehaha County Planning Commission to approve Conditional Use Permit #21-76 Allowing Construction of a Public Utility Facility. The facility will include above ground and below ground equipment to connect to a local dairy to supply natural gas to the existing regional lines. The proposed facility will include several structures on the property which exceed 120 square feet in size which is the threshold to require a conditional use permit for a Public Utility Facility. The appeal was filed on behalf of David and Nicole Dybvig-Wirkus. The basis for the appeal includes: (1) the Petitioner failed to sufficiently inform the Planning Commission of the details of this proposed project, (2) additional information about the proposed project is necessary to make an informed decision, and (3) the conditional use criteria set forth in Section 19.05(D) favor denial of the conditional use permit. 

Chair Karsky asked for proponents and opponents to speak on the topic. 

Proponents

Jason Sutton, representing Northern Natural Gas, addressed the Commission about the joint Northern Natural Gas and Brightmark, to capture the methane gas at three local dairies which will then be turned into natural gas. The presentation also highlighted the details related to the site as well as the view from the Wirkus’s residence and reviewed the effects on the adjacent properties. 

 

William Taylor, representing Brightmark, addressed the Commission about the company and related projects that they are undertaking along with how the construction will be done, the need to be a good neighbor and the concerns raised by the adjacent property owners which were addressed by the companies. Mr. Taylor stated that the concerns raised by the Wirkus are related to the visual, noise, and safety concerns. 

Gary Meier, Hartford Township, spoke about how Northern Natural Gas and Brightmark have made an effort to be good neighbors. 

Opponents 

Reece Almond, representing David Wirkus and Nicole Dybvig-Wirkus, addressed the Commission regarding his clients’ appeal of the issuance of a conditional use permit for this project. Ms. Wirkus, speaking on her own behalf, presented the practical reasons for the filing of an appeal which include: potential financial loss that might occur because of the proposed construction of the project, effect the project will have on multiple views on the property to the adjoining river, various safety concerns including the construction in a known floodplain, noise concerns relating to the generators and compressors that will be used in the buildings, and if the site is appropriate for the construction of a public utility facility.  Mr. Almond presented legal reasons for the appeal and argued that Northern Natural Gas is not a public utility and therefore cannot apply for the conditional use permit as a public utility facility for that reason.  In support of his argument, Mr. Almond presented a copy of the “Initial Brief of Northern Natural Gas Company” filed by Northern Natural Gas in Staff’s Petition for Declaratory Ruling Regarding Farm Tap Customers, NG16-014, that was heard before the Public Utilities Commission of the State of South Dakota. 

MOTION by Heiberger, seconded by Barth, to enter into Executive Session pursuant to SDCL 1-25-2 (1), (3) and (4) from 11;15 to 11:24. 4 ayes.

The Commissioners directed both parties to provide supporting material regarding the definition of a public utility and to provide the information prior to the January 4 2022 meeting.

Either party may apply to the Court for further temporary order or modification or revocation of the Order.

TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER

BY ORDER OF THE COURT, YOU AND YOUR SPOUSE ARE:
