County still seeking standby election workers

HURON — Beadle County commissioners met Tuesday morning with a brief agenda. One priority item on the minds of commissioners was the upcoming election. Auditor Jill Hanson reported that while she believes she has enough staff to work the election, she is still short on standby workers. Standby election workers this election have been voted a $50 stipend by the commission to be on-call on election day. If a standby worker is called in to work the election, the worker would be compensated for election day pay.

Commissioners also reviewed gravel bids with Highway Superintendent Merl Hanson. Asphalt Paving and Arlan Jantz each submitted bids, for $6.75 per ton and $7 per ton, respectively. Commissioners accepted both bids.

The commission reviewed and approved platting of two parcels of land.

Beadle County commissioners will meet next Thursday, Oct. 29.
