He drafted a resolution which would 'authorize and 'instruct the <br />County Auditor to place the question on the Primary Election Ballot for establishing a special road <br />mill levy according to the proposedCass County 20 year road repair and construction program as <br />prepared and presented at previous meetings by Mr. Krueger and County Road Superintendent <br />Steve Grindberg. <br /> <br />Mr. Larson suggested increasing the amount of money to be allocated to the cities for the <br />creation of a City Pothole and Street Repair Fund as noted in Item No.1 of the resolution. It was <br />moved by Mr. Larson and seconded by Mr. Sondrall to adopt a resolution requesting a 10 mill' levy <br />annually for a Cass County Road Repair and Construction Program but stating that 150% instead of <br />100% of the money allocated to Cass County from the State Highway Department Incentive Fund be <br />allocated to cities on a matching basis, and that the mill levy l?e for a period of 10 years instead <br />of 20 years.

Mr. Wieland seconded the motion for discussion, and questioned <br />whether a figure of $300,000.00 could be used instead of a percentage for the City Pothole and <br />Street Repair Fund. Discussion was held on using a minimum and a maximum dollar amount. <br /> <br />Robert Hoy, States Attorney, informed the Commission that if they were to go beyond 1 OO%. of <br />the State Highway Department Incentive Fund, the proposed road mill levy cannot be used to' <br />subsidize the additional amount to be allocated to the cities. This would have to, come from other' <br />County monies. <br /> <br />Mr. Eckert amended his motion to adopt the resolution as follows; The amended 'motion was <br />seconded biMr. Wieland, and it carried on roll call vote with all members voting "Aye". <br /> <br />WHEREAS, The Board of Cass County Commissioners has prepared a proposed County Road <br />Program of Federal Aid and Off System Roads, setting forth a general description of the roads to <br />be repaired or constructed, the location of the bridges constituting a part of the program, the <br />approximated total mileage and the priority of construction, and; <br /> <br />WHEREAS, said program has been submitted to the State Highway Department and the Federal <br />Highway Works Administration as follows: <br /> <br />CASS COUNTY 20 YEAR ROAD REPAIR AND CONSTRUCTION PROGRAM <br />Yearly <br />Priority Description and Location <br /> <br />1. <br /> <br />Creation of a CITY POTHOLE AND STREET REPAIR FUND in the amount of <br />$300,000.00, to be allocated to cities on a matching basis, pursuant to ~ 54,-40-08, <br />North Dakota Century Code, 1983; <br /> <br />2. <br /> <br />Repair or Replacement of 1 substandard bridge on the Federal Aid 'System, as <br />shown on Exhibit 1 <br /> <br />3. <br /> <br />Repair or Replacement of up to 8 substandard bridges off the Federal Aid <br />System, as shown on Exhibit 2 <br /> <br />4. <br /> <br />Reshaping and Resurfacing up to 12.7 miles of surfaced roads' on the County <br />Road System - 254 miles total, as shown on Exhibit 3 <br />
