He questioned whether Weismantel spent time driving the roads to see the problems and said that if the county grinds more asphalt roads, it's going to have to buy more graders to care for them.
Feickert also said that county shouldn't expect more road funding options from Pierre as long as the Gov. Dennis Daugaard's administration is in power.
In other action Tuesday, the county:
- Approved a resolution banning open burning and campfires at the Brown County Fair. Fair officials requested the ban because campers are so close together during the fair.
Gas grills used for cooking will be allowed.
- Approved payment of a bill for $1,854 from Nick Guthmiller, who promotes stock car races at Brown County Speedway at the Brown County Fairgrounds.
The track's pit area got ripped up during the tractor pull at last year's fair, so dirtwork was done to repair it, said Gary Vetter, commission assistant.
Guthmiller was not satisfied with attempts by a contractor to repair the area, Sutton said.
- Decided how to break up the cost of installing a new fence and gate near the former county Extension building and BMX race track on First Avenue Southeast. The overall cost is $11,910 from Vosika Fencing of Aberdeen.
The county will pay $5,520, BMX $3,760 and Marco, an Aberdeen technology business, $2,630.
- Met twice in closed session, once to discuss personnel matters and once to discuss contractual matters.
