4.0501 PURPOSE OF CHAPTER
The purpose of this chapter is to provide regulations applicable to private alarm systems and users. The public safety and good order require that emergency services be maintained with a proper balance between prompt response to alarms and a minimization of time spent on alarms which are false or otherwise not the intended function of private security systems.
The following words, terms and phrases, when used in this Section, shall have the meanings ascribed to them in this Section, except where the context clearly indicates a different meaning:
(a) Alarm user means any person, property owner, firm, partnership, corporation or governmental entity whose premises has an alarm system.
(b) Alarm system means a device or system that emits, transmits or relays a remote or local audible, visual or electronic signal indicating an alarm condition and intended to or reasonably expected to summon law enforcement officers of the Minnehaha County Sheriff's Department (hereinafter "Sheriff ') or fire services. Alarm system does not include an alarm installed on a vehicle.

(2) The activation of an alarm system by mechanical failure or malfunction because of improper maintenance of the alarm system.
(3) The activation of an alarm system because of improper installation and/or use of the equipment.
(4) The intentional activation of an alarm system where no unauthorized entry, commission of an unlawful act or fire exists.
(5) An alarm shall be presumed false if the law enforcement officers do not locate evidence of intrusion, commission of an unlawful act, or emergency on the premises that might have caused the alarm to sound. When responding law enforcement officers find unsecured doors or windows where there is no evidence of forced entry or other evidence of criminal intent, the alarm is presumed to be false.
(6) False alarm includes an alarm caused by power outage, but shall not include alarms activated by unusually severe weather conditions or other causes which are identified by the law enforcement officers or fire department to be beyond the control of the alarm user.
4.0503 INSTALLATION AND OPERATION

(b) Emergency information. The alarm user will provide the Sheriff and City with the names and telephone numbers of at least two persons in addition to the user who can be reached at any time, day or night, and who are authorized to respond to an emergency signal transmitted by the automatic alarm device, and who can open the premises wherein the device is installed.
(a) False alarm. No person owning, using or possessing an alarm system or transmitting information regarding an alarm system shall cause or permit the giving of a false alarm, whether intentional, accidental or otherwise.
(b) Prohibited devices. No person shall use or cause or permit to be used any telephone or electronic device or attachment that automatically selects a public primary telephone trunk line of the Sheriff or fire department and then reproduces any prerecorded message to report any unlawful act, fire or other emergency.
4.0505 FALSE ALARM FEE
(a) If the Sheriff or fire department responds to a false alarm, the alarm user shall pay the City a fee according to the schedule of fees for any false alarm occurring in a calendar year as determined by resolution of the City council.
(b) If the summons to the Sheriff or fire department is cancelled while the Sheriff or fire department is responding to an alarm, the alarm user shall still be assessed a fee for a false alarm.
(c) Any fees payable to the City which are delinquent shall be assessed against the property involved as a special assessment. The Finance Officer shall certify this assessment to the County Auditor.
4.0506 PENALTIES FOR VIOLATION OF CHAPTER

Notice to Burk Township Residents
South Dakota statute - 31-31-1 states that the township road right-of-way is to remain free of obstructions. The right-of-way of township roads extends thirtythree (33) feet from the center line of each road.
Trees, brush and debris present a potential safety hazard to the traveling public all year round should anyone go off the road into the ditch. Ditches are by their origin and use an area of the right-of-way which are to be free of all obstructions should anyone go off the road. Trees should be removed to ground level.
Burk Township will strictly enforce the tree and debris removal effort this year. We request this work be done as soon as possible, but no later than October 1, 2014. If this work is not completed, South Dakota law authorizes the Township Board to employ a person or persons to remove the trees, brush and debris and charge the expense back against the landowners as taxes on the property.

Director Daren Ketcham provided an example of the new reports that will be presented for the council in future meetings. He explained the report will include nationally recognized performance standards Metro Communications can measure themselves against. Metro Communications is currently looking at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards to use as benchmarks.
4. Presentation of 2013 Audit
Director Daren Ketcham presented the audit report from Eide Bailly, reflecting no concerns. He advised he felt the audit is a testimony to the financial strength of the agency.
Mayor Huether commended Ketcham and his team for the work they've done in this area.
Motion made by Councilman Jamison, seconded by Councilman Entenman, to approve the 2013 audit. Motion carried.
5. Presentation of Financial Statements for January - March 2014, including payroll, monthly overtime report and expenditures
Director Daren Ketcham presented the monthly financial statements and overtime reports for January - March 2014.
Ketcham reported the agency has more cash on hand due to the City paying their portion in advance. He explained Personnel expenses are higher due to a long term employee retirement and also pointed out revenue is reflecting 45 days behind. Ketcham advised there were no concerns and felt things were going well. He stated there were no issues meeting budget.
Overtime was presented and Ketcham explain the numbers are higher due to the number of paid holidays in the first few months of the year. He also brought attention to the detailed overtime report and advised comparison of current to previous years illustrates an increase of 300 hours. Ketcham explained this was part due to an employee that had been out on FMLA and partially due to vacancies. He advised he felt this would start to balance out again as four recruits have completed training and one employee has returned from FMLA leave.
Motion made by Councilman Entenman, seconded by Councilman Jamison, to approve the financial statements as presented. Motion carried.
Commissioner Beninga arrived at 3:40
6. Presentation of 2015 Budget
Director Daren Ketcham presented the 2015 budget and advised he had been conservative and estimated a 1% increase to 911 surcharge revenue based on historical and statistical data.
He explained the personnel expenses reflected the greatest increase and included the addition of 3 FTE that had been discussed during Strategic Planning. The additional personnel will increase minimum staffing on the morning shift from 7 to 8. Ketcham explained the importance of increased staffing to accommodate the call volume and responder activity during the shift. Statistical data regarding the number of calls handled per hour was shared with the Council. Ketcham explained with the approved increase of the 3 FTE, the actual net increase in FTE over the past 6 years would still only be -1. This is because of the positions that were eliminated during economic hardship that were never re-filled. Daren also explained the importance of shifting the working hours of the agency to ensure resources and demand are matched appropriately.
Ketcham stated the budget reflects a projected growth of 10% for insurance benefits and operations decreased by $3.00 from 2014. He stated this was due to cutting costs and reduced fees for new maintenance agreements.
Ketcham explained the Agency would notice a 1st time expense in Capital due to the phone system that must be replaced. Ketcham advised he couldn't say for sure if the new phone system would be stand alone or include seats on the statewide NG911 system, but it is more likely to be on the statewide system. He advised we are still waiting to see what happens with the State's proposal.
Cash flow was discussed and Ketcham pointed the agency's cash position is strong due to 911 surcharge receipts and the agency's conservative efforts with the budget.
Mayor Huether commented on decreasing cash levels in future years and Ketcham explained it was partially due to the phone system, potential fire protocol costs, and the fact that the 911 surcharge is scheduled to sunset in 2018. Ketcham stated more than likely our government entities would need to re-address the 911 surcharge prior to the 2018 sunset. He also reiterated that only the 2015 budgeted costs were being approved for today and future years are for planning purposes only.
Mayor Huether explained the importance of the board working together to ensure the surcharge was readdressed before the sunset occurred.
Motion made by Councilman Jamison, seconded by Commissioner Kelly, to approve the 2015 budget as presented. Motion carried.
7. Director's Report
Ketcham thanked those who attended the Metro Communications Open House in honor of National Public Safety Telecommunications Week. He also recognized the Employee of the Year, Chad Dykstra and the Supervisor of the Year, Jesseca Mundahl.
An expression of gratitude was given to the outgoing council members, Councilman Jamison and Councilman Entenman.
Ketcham brought recognition to the medical oversight in our community and explained there are only 6 cities in the United States, including Sioux Falls that have an accredited ambulance service, fire department and 911 center.
Ketcham requested the Council approve the 3 FTE to be hired to start training in June to allow them to be trained and ready to begin working in the 911 Center by January 2015. Ketcham explained he felt confident the cost to bring the 3 FTE on board now could be absorbed through the 2014 budget. This is due to an unexpected decrease in insurance cost, providing the agency with an estimated $47,000 savings. The Metro Council would support hiring the 2015 personnel now with the understanding if the County Commission or City Council were not in favor of the decision in August; the 3 FTE would be laid off. Councilman Jamison urged the approval and commended Ketcham for his preparation and the way he runs the department.
Motion made by Commissioner Kelly, seconded by Councilman Jamison, to approve the 3 FTE budgeted for in 2015 to be hired in 2014. Motion carried.
8. Executive Session - Contractual
Motion by Commissioner Kelly, seconded by Councilman Jamison, to adjourn the regular meeting and enter into executive session for the purpose of contract updates. Motion carried at 4:27 p.m. The executive session ended and the meeting was officially adjourned at 5:00 p.m.
Published once at the total approximate cost of $74.30.

Commissioner Pekas gave a briefing on a petition for compromise of lien for DPNO 58398 in the amount of $3,822.66. The applicant is requesting a compromise and release of the lien in full upon payment of $1,000. $296 of the lien is for Public Defender services in 2005. The remaining portion of the lien is associated with a neglect and abuse case in 2011 involving the applicant's minor child. The applicant states he was incarcerated when the incident occurred. A Public Advocate was hired to represent his minor child resulting in a fee of $1,582. A Court Appointed Attorney represented the applicant as the father of the child involved, resulting in a fee of $1,944.06. The applicant has been out of prison for four years, works full time, and is hoping to purchase a home in the future. His current annual income is $38,000. He lists assets totaling $1,078 that include a 2000 GMC Jimmy and $78 in a bank account. His liabilities consist of monthly expenses of $750 rent, $550 for insurance, car and medical bills, and other obligations for $80 a month. MOTION by Pekas, seconded by Barth, to approve Resolution MC14-49. 5 ayes.
WHEREAS, a County Aid Lien in the amount of $3,822.66 purports to exist in favor of Minnehaha County and against DPNO 58398 as Lienee, and
WHEREAS, said lienee has filed an application with the County Auditor stating such facts as provided for by Law,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that after due consideration of the circumstances the Board of County Commissioners finds it advisable and proper to authorize the Chairman of the County Board and the County Auditor to execute the following:
Compromise and release the lien in full upon payment of $1,311.33.
If payment is not made within one year from approval, this agreement is null and void.
Dated at Sioux Falls, South Dakota, this 19th day of August, 2014.
Deputy County Auditor
Kevin Hoekman, Planner, was present for the public hearing and gave a briefing on a public nuisance violation on property owned by Courtesy Investments, LLC, legally described as Tract 14 Preston Place Addition, Section 27-T101N-R48W. During an inspection of the site, staff found grass and weeds approximately six feet in height. Two attempts were made to contact the Courtesy Investments, LLC at the corporation's registered address. The letters were attempted to be delivered but returned to the county. An alternate address was provided by the State's Attorney's Office, and a letter was sent with a deadline for bringing the property into compliance. No reply was received. Due to no response from the property owners, the Planning and Zoning Department and State's Attorney Office believe the only recourse is to declare the property a Public Nuisance to allow Minnehaha County to remove the violations from the property. Mr. Hoekman stated that Ralph Hammer, Weed Board Supervisor, visited the site and reported that the weeds are mostly clover. Scott Anderson, Planning & Zoning Director stated that the property is zoned A-1 Agriculture but is classified as a residential lot because it is part of a subdivision. Mr. Anderson stated that there are many other subdivisions in the county that are also zoned agriculture. Robert Litz, Auditor, stated this property was purchased at the 2010 tax deed sale and that the taxes are current on the property. MOTION by Pekas, seconded by Beninga, to deny the declaration of a Public Nuisance at property legally described as Tract 14 Preston Place Addition, Section 27-T101N-R48W. Commissioner Barth stated he feels it is a nuisance and that the county should have it abated. Chairman Heiberger stated that the property is zoned A-1 Agriculture and doesn't see it being a problem. Commissioner Pekas stated that the property is a field of clover and zoned A-1, therefore he is reluctant to declare it a nuisance. Commissioner Kelly stated that it is clearly a residential lot and thinks it should be declared a nuisance. VOTE on motion, 3 ayes, Kelly and Barth voted nay. Motion carries.
(Deferred from May 20, 2014) Scott Anderson, Planning & Zoning Director, gave a briefing on an appeal filed by Robert Schulte of a decision of the Minnehaha County Planning Commission to approve Conditional Use Permit (CUP) #14-04, to allow a bulk fuel storage facility for Hartford Farmers Elevator on property legally described as Lot 1 Brower's 2nd Addition, SW 1/4 Section 27-T102N-R51W. A public hearing was held at the May 20, 2014 County Commission meeting. The Commission deferred action for 3 months to allow the applicant time to address road concerns in the Brower Subdivision. Commissioner Pekas stated that Gary and Gloria Krier, who filed a grievance against CUP #14-04, are related to him through his wife. The Kriers have not contacted him on this matter and Mr. Pekas sees no conflict. Scott Anderson stated that there is an established Road District for this development that should provide service for maintaining, improving, and developing roads.
