Motion carried. <br /> <br />Mr. Eckert moved and Mr. Larson seconded to send a letter to the District Office of the <br />North Dakota Highway Patrol requesting their assistance in the enforcement of County Road <br />Restrictions that went into effect on Monday, March 5th. On '1'011 call vote, the motion carried <br />unanimously. Mrs. Stanton stated that it has been suggested that the County request this assistance <br />in writing each year. ' <br /> <br />Mr. Eckert and Mr. Larson reported that they met yesterday with the Kindred True Value <br />Hardware to negotiate the terms for their application for Community Development Block Grant funds, <br />which the County agreed to sponsor at their Regular Meeting of February 28, 1984. Mr. Eckert <br />stated that on this type of loan, if the Kindred True Value Hardware does not continue to make <br />their payments, Cass County will be directly responsible for the loan and would acquire the <br />'property. Mr. Larson stated that he is no longer in favor of this type of program after learning that <br />the rate of interest could be set anywhere from zero percent to twelve percent. <br /> <br />Mr. Eckert moved to authorize the application for Community Development Block Grant funds to <br />provide a loan to the Kindred True Value Hardware in the amount of $100,000.00 for the purchase of <br />their building plus $60,000.00 for additional inventory, the percentage rate for the loan being set at <br />8%. Mr. Wieland seconded the motion and discussion followed. The loan for the building will be a <br />15-year term and the loan on the inventory will be a 5-year term, with total monthly payments being <br />$2,170.00. Mrs. Stanton questioned referring this to the States Attorney before making a decision <br />but Mr. Eckert stated "that the deadline for submitting the application to the State is March 23rd, <br />and the State makes the final decision. At the call for the question, the motion carried on roll call <br />vote with four members voting "Aye" and Mr. Larson voting "Pass". <br /> <br />Upon the recommendation of Ruth Hellem, Clerk of the District Court, Mr. Eckert moved and <br />Mr. Sondrall seconded to approve the promotions within her office for five persons who are assuming <br />new duties caused by the resignation of one of her Second Deputies. Mr. Wieland reported that the <br />Salary Review Committee found that this falls within the categories of the County Pay Scale which <br />took effect on January 1, 1984. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Robert Hoy, States Attorney, submitted a written opinion on the County's question of leasing <br />property at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds for a proposed zoo by the Red River Zoological <br />Garden, Inc. Based on a Warranty Deed executed on April 12, 1979, between Cass County and the <br />Red River Valley Fair Association, Mr. Hoy stated that it js his opinion that Cass County is without <br />legal authority to sell, transfer, lease or otherwise encumber this property without the consent and <br />approval of the Red River Valley Fair Association. He further stated that it appears that if the Fair <br />Association desired to operate the zoo as an animal exposition, it could do so without the consent of <br />Cass County under the terms of said Warranty Deed. If, however, the Fair Association desired to <br />lease a portion of the fairgrounds to another entity for zoo purposes, the consent of Cass County <br />would be required. <br /> <br />Chairman Stanton read a letter from the Wheatland Township Board opposing the proposed zoo <br />at the Fairgrounds and expressing concern that it may require County tax revenue in the future to <br />maintain the facilities. Mr. Wieland moved and Mr. Larson seconded to receive and file the letter <br />from the Wheatland Township Board. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Mr. Wieland moved and Mr. Eckert seconded that the Cass County Commission schedule a public <br />hearing for Friday, March 23rd, at 7:00 P.M. in the Cass County Juvenile Justice Center Building <br />for the purpose of seeking public input on the zoo as proposed by the Red River Zoological Garden, <br />Inc. on the Red River Valley Fairgrounds property. On roll call vote, the motion carried <br />unanimously. Scott Krueger, Administrative Assistant, will be asked to conduct the hearing. <br /> <br />Mr. Ken Mcintyre gave a presentation on the Annual Audit of Bonanzaville, U.S.A. He reported <br />on upcoming improvements to be made as money becomes available. The Board commended him for his <br />time and efforts at Bonanzaville. <br /> <br />Mr. Larson moved and Mr. Eckert seconded to receive and file the following Officer's Reports <br />for February, 1984: Motion carried. <br /> <br />Clerk of Court $ 4,722.25 <br />County Court $13,847.97 <br />Register of Deeds $10,020.00 <br />Sheriff $ 5,147.37 <br />Veterans Service Office <br /> <br />On motion by Mr. Larson and seconded by Mr. Eckert, the meeting was adjourned. <br />
