Clark appointed temporary County Attorney

Glenn Clark was formally appointed Custer County’s County Attorney, at least for the next 45 days. It is up to the Custer County Board of Supervisors to fill the position being vacated by Tami Schendt as she steps into the job of County Judge. There are two years left on her previous appointment. Clark is the current Deputy County Attoney. In a letter to the Supervisors, Clark stated that he would accept a 45-day appointment but that he was not interested in the job on a permanent basis. The County Clerk has started advertising for the position. In other business, the Supervisors: • Tabled a request by the District Judge to support their share should a full-time court bailiff/secretary be hired. Judge Karin Noakes is making the request. Custer County’s share would be 35 percent of the estimated $50,000 it would cost for salary, mileage and benefits. • Approved a jail administrator position for the Custer County Sheriff’s Office. The funding is already in the budget. • Approved a conditional use permit for Allen Eastwood to start a used car dealership business. • Met with members of the Historical Society Board of Directors to discuss their tax asking of $5,000 and the distribution of county tourism dollars. Information was provided by the Historical Society on the economical impact of heritage tours. The next scheduled meeting for the board of Supervisors is Sept. 11.
