Chairman Stanton stated that it appears that a majority of the Commission, would <br />be in favor of re-shaping the road. Mr. G rindberg stated that the road does need to be re-built as there <br />is no drainage and no slopes. He did not feel the project could be done for 1985, but it could possibly be <br />worked into the 1986 program. The question of funds for this project will be discussed when the <br />Commission reviews the Road Department's budget on September 12, 1984. <br /> <br />Mr. Ken Pawluk presented petitions with approximately 155 signatures requesting improvements to <br />County Road 20 from the junction with County Road 17 to the junction with County Road 11. The County <br />considered improvements on this road a few years ago but ran into difficulties with over-head power lines <br />which would have to be removed at County expense, and obtaining necessary right-of-way. The <br />Commission will also consider this project during the Road Department's budget review. <br /> <br />A petition was received containing about 50 signatures requesting installation of railroad crossing <br />signal lights and cross arms on County Road 4 -between Sections 4-9, Amenia Township. Mr. Eckert moved <br />and Mr. Sondrall seconded to submit the petition to Steve Grindberg for evaluation and recommendation. <br />On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. <br /> <br />A protest hearing was held at 10; 00 A.M. on the Chrisan and Chrisan 2nd Subdivisions Street <br />Imrpovement District No. 1984-2.

Before the call of the question on the motion, States Attorney Robert Hoy reminded the <br />Commission of the concerns over drain fields in the County ditch. Project Engineer Steve Dewald stated <br />that an "Agreement Relating to Drainage" has been signed by all of the landowners involved stating and <br />agreeing to bring the drainage from their respective property into compliance with applicable drainage <br />laws and regulations to the satisfaction of Cass County prior to commencement of construction of the <br />street improvement project. <br /> <br />Further discussion was held on the drainage matter.

Three of the landowners involved were present and confirmed <br />that they will comply with the signed agreement. A spokesman for the fourth party stated that they will <br />also comply. It was the consensus of the Commission to have faith in the people that live in the area to <br />comply with the drainage agreement, and to approve the street improvement project as planned. <br /> <br />At the call for the question on the above motion to adopt the RESOLUTION ACCEPTING BID, the <br />motion carried on roll call vote with all members voting "Aye". <br /> <br />A presentation was made by Mr. Jim Stenerson, Mr. Charles Bailly and Mr. Vince Lindstrom <br />requesting financial support from Cass County in the amount of $50,000.00 for the proposed <br />Heritage-Hjemkomst Center to be constructed in Moorhead, Minnesota, as a cooperative agreement for the <br />entire Red River Valley.
