From the desk of Lincoln County Commissioner Jim Schmidt
The Lincoln County Commission will have two new commissioners, Tiffani Landeen and Joel Arends. . Landeen, who will be the first woman commissioner in the country, was the former State’s Attorney for Turner County before moving to Sioux Falls to establish her law practice. Arends is an attorney residing in Harrisburg.
The Lincoln County Commission has joined the Minnehaha County Commission through a Letter of Intent in support of an application to The MacArthur Foundation. This grant would establish an implementation process to be used by the court system for services used during pretrial cases placing heavy emphasis on those involving mental health.
