The Lake County Commission approved a resolution Thursday transferring a county tax deed property to another government entity.
Commissioners in May approved a proposal from the Horizon Heights Road District to purchase the piece of county tax deed property. The county sold the three-by-four-foot wide piece of property that stretches along several lots adjacent to the Horizon Heights Road. The property was sold for the costs the county incurred with the property, which was just more than 321-dollars.
Commissioners Thursday also approved a resolution appointing Commission Chair Kelli Wollmann as the applicant agent for the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program. Commission Administrative Officer Shelli Gust said that the county did not have any applications to sponsor during the first award period for the program, but do have one property owner who is interested in making application during a now second application period. She said that the South Dakota Office of Emergency Management completed its first round of the Hazard Mitigation Grant program applications and the damage estimates were approximately twice as high as they initially thought. They opened up a second application period which ends on July 31st.
