The board of Lyman County Commissioners met Tuesday, June 16, in the conference room of the Lyman County Courthouse in Kennebec.
A resoluton regarding treasurer’s administration fees was approved.
Resolution 2020-02 read, “For The Establishment of An Administrative Fee For Certain Title and Registration Services. Whereas, South Dakota allows out-of-state resident and non-resident applicants to title motor vehicles entirely by mail and whereas, any title, interstate title and initial registration applications that are processed entirely by mail are more time consuming and result in higher administrative expenses and allocation of staff time for the treasurer’s office and whereas, SDCL 32-3-18.1 allows counties
to charge an administrative fee for applications for title, interstate title and initial registrations completed entirely by mail and whereas, South Dakota allows non-resident applications to title large boats, as defined by South Dakota Codified Law 32-3A-2(5) entirely by mail and whereas, SDCL 32-3A-21.1 allows counties to charge an administrative fee for application to title large boats, as defined by South Dakota law, completed entirely by mail and whereas, SDCL 32-3A-4 requires non-residents to register boats requiring numbering by the State of South Dakota and whereas, initial registration of boats completed entirely by mail is as time
consuming as the titling process for large boats or motor vehicles and whereas, pursuant to SDCL 7-8-20(7), the Lyman County Commission is empowered with the responsibility to superintend the fiscal concerns of the county and secure their management in the best possible manner, now therefore be it resolved that as of July 1, 2020, the Lyman County Treasurer’s Office will charge an administrative fee of $25 for any title, interstate title or initial registration application that is received and processed entirely by mail.”
