New commissioners receive overviews
Oliver County’s two new commissioners—Darrell Berger and Blake Wilkens—were greeted at the Jan. 3 meeting with overviews providing background on various reporting areas.
Steve Reiser of Dakota Central Social Services provided history for the organization in order to provide context for upcoming staff location changes. DCSS began serving Mercer, McLean and Sheridan counties in 1975 with a shared director. Cooperative efforts continued over the years, with the organization forming a district in 2007 after the Legislature passed a bill allowing counties to create Social Services districts.
