County commission approves new shed for 4-H Shooting Sports program

With the growth of the county’s 4-H Shooting Sports program, Lake County Commissioners have approved a request to add a storage shed at the 4-H grounds in Madison to hold some of the program’s equipment. Lake County 4-H Advisor Jen Hayford told commissioners Tuesday that they want to put a 12-by-20-foot shed outside near the southeast corner of the 4-H Center to store archery equipment.  She said that there are currently 136 youth enrolled in the Shooting Sports program.  As far as a timeline, Hayford said that they will work on getting funding for the shed and that it will probably take a couple of years.  

County Buildings and Grounds Supervisor Dave Hare said that the timeframe will be good in order to get the lower area filled in where they want to locate the shed.  Commissioners approved the addition of the new shed based on funding and working with Hare on it’s placement.

Also during their meeting Tuesday, county commissioners approved inmate housing contracts between the county and McCook and Sanborn counties.  The contracts are for these counties to house inmates in the Lake County Jail for the next year.  The daily rate for each inmate that Lake County houses for these two counties, along with Moody, Kingsbury, and Miner counties, is $82.50 a day.
