On roll call vote; the motion carried unanimously. <br /> <br />Concerning the bridge that was damaged in Sections 24-19, Raymond-Reed Townships, the <br />Commission suggested that Mr. Grindberg hold a meeting with the township officials of both <br />townships and have it open to the public for their input on the possible elimination of this bridge. <br /> <br />Scott Krueger, Administrative Assistant, made a presentation on a proposed 20 year County <br />Road repair and, construction program. He stated that if the' Commission were to place a question on <br />the June Primary Election ballot asking the voters for a County Road Program of 10 mills, it would <br />only raise taxes four-hundredths of a mifl over last year's level; and this would qualify Cass <br />County for approximately $202,000.00 of the State Highway Department's Incentive Fund which <br />counties are eligible to receive only if they have a separate levy for roads and bridges. The <br />Commission will' make a determination next week on whether to place the issue of a special road levy <br />on the Primary Election Ballot. <br /> <br />Mr. Larson moved and Mr. Eckert seconded to authorize Scott Krueger to submit the proposed <br />20 Year Cass County Road Repair and Construction Program to the State Highway Department and <br />to the Federal Highway Works Administration for preliminary approval.
