used to assess agricultural property. She also discussed correspondence received regarding the
Requests for Proposals for the I-29 Corridor Regional Economic Growth Analysis, a thank you from
the Boys and Girls Club Teen Court Program, and an invitation for an accessibility review of the
current Brookings County Courthouse parking and path of travel from the Brookings Committee for
People who have Disabilities. Vogel also discussed letters of concern from citizens regarding the

Processor’s plant in Volga. She also reported on format changes for the Leadership Brookings

      Deputy State’s Attorney Mark Kratochvil reminded the board that he will not be at next

     Commissioner Falken reported on the Planning and Zoning meeting, the local review

       Commissioner Santema updated the rest of the board on the $2.25 million grant to the state

Innovation Campus dedication and letter from South Dakota’s Supreme Court Chief Justice David
Gilbertson regarding Judicial System grant funding.

      Commissioner Falken discussed the letters of concern the board has been receiving
concerning the CapX2020 transmission line project. He said that this is really a Public Utilities

the public about the PUC process that will take place, but that the county commission doesn’t have
the power to pull the plug on the project.

       Commissioner Santema asked if there is a report that the board could receive from the Teen
Court program to see how the money that they’ve given them is being spent. Deputy State’s
Attorney Mark Kratochvil said that they are affiliated with a national program that they report to,
so they could supply that report to the board. He said he would follow up with that request.
