Quarterly Update: Olivia Mears, Executive Director of the Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce provided a recap of the 4th quarter activities of the various Chamber committees. Tourism saw decent numbers during the peak season and although this is “the slow season” they are busy planning for next year. The Ag committee sponsored meals for conservation day at the Whitney Preserve and for 4H families at the County Fair. In November they held the last Chamber organized Ag Banquet, due to diminished attendance and lack of sponsors the Chamber will no longer host this event. The Retail & Business promotions committee has the Christmas Cookie Cruise this Friday and invites shoppers to enjoy our many local businesses then attend the tree lighting, sing carols, and watch the parade. The Ambassador Committee meets and greets monthly to welcome and recognize new and existing businesses in town, she highlighted the upcoming Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting at Bomgaars. Lastly she invited Council to the Chamber’s Christmas Soiree to be held at the Mueller Center on 20th December from 4-7 p.m.
Dawn Johnson, Director of the Hot Springs Public Library provided her quarterly update which included the “bad news” first; library heating system broke down and multiple calls were made in an attempt to get someone to come and trouble shoot the problem, Tessier’s from Rapid City came and made repairs of approximately $2K, lost 3 of 4 full-time employees in the last quarter but on the bright side they have seen very good applicants and have been able to fill the positions with the exception of 1. Requested to add promotion of Library Clerk Brenda Cullen to Assistant Library Director at the next council meeting. More good news, the Friends of the Library announced they will be replacing 7-9 computers at the library in 2020. The November food for fines program allowed approximately $700 in fines to be removed from their books and they collected 245 pounds of food for the Hot Springs Food Bank. Fall Library programs include; story times, computer classes. Friday movies, maker’s space, game and Legos day and a continuation of the coding club, which just recently graduated 7 members.

This summary included an overview of the 25 year Life-cycle costs that could be incurred if the City assumes responsibility for ownership and maintenance of the University Ave. bridges. The bridge assessment summary, photo documentation and maintenance cost analysis were also presented to Governor Noem during the telephone conference November 26th. Thanked city personnel and advisory committee members for their assistance with finalizing the City Fee Resolution that coincides with the integration of the codified City Ordinances, which are now posted on the city’s website.
