Under Item No.1 of Yearly Priority after the words "Creation <br />of a CITY POTHOLE AND STREET REPAIR FUND in the amount of $300,000.00," the Commission <br />needs to delete the words' "to be financed by money allocated to Cass County from the State <br />Highway Department Incentive Fund and other sources". <br /> <br />Mr. Larson moved and Mr. Sondrall seconded that the minutes of the previous meeting be <br />approved as corrected on the resolution for the Cass County 20 Year Road Repair and <br />Construction Program. Motion carried unanimously. A signed copy of the corrected resolution will <br />be submitted to Mr. Henry Wisness at the State Highway Department. <br /> <br />Steve Grindberg, County Road Superintendent, prepared a form for requesting proposals <br />for construction engineering services on County road projects, a new requirement of the Federal <br />Highway AdministraHon. 'He requested the Board's approval of the form in order to advertise for <br />proposals to be accepted until 2:00 P.M. on May 14, 1984, for the bridge replacement project in <br />Sections 14-23, Noble Township, on County Road 31. Robert Hoy, States Attorney, reviewed the <br />form and stated that it appears to be in order and advised the Commission to approve it for this <br />particular project. He will discuss the matter further with Mr. Grindberg for future projects. <br /> <br />Mr. Eckert moved and Mr. Larson seconded to approve the form for requesting proposals <br />for construction engineering services on County highway projects, as prepared by the County <br />Road Superintendent. The motion carried on roll call vote with all members present voting <br />"Aye". <br /> <br />Discussion was held with Mr. Grindberg on the request of last week from the Prosper <br />Farmer's Elevator to raise the spring load limitations on County Road 22 in Raymond Township. <br />He stated that he has had several requests for changing road restrictions but has denied them. <br />The Commission is in agreement to support Mr. Grindberg in his recommendation not to change <br />the spring road restrictions in an effort to prevent the break-up of County roads. Mr. Eckert <br />suggested notifying the Prosper Farmer's Elevator of the Board's discussion today. <br /> <br />Upon the recommendation of Scott Krueger, Mr. Larson moved and Mr. Eckert seconded to <br />initiate a payroll deduction program for County employees to voluntarily join a physical fitness <br />center at either the Family YMCA or. Gold's Gym at a group rate. On roll call vote, the motion <br />carried with all members present voting " Aye". <br /> <br />Correspondence was received from Architects Clark Holman and Moorhead concerning <br />deterioration of the roof structure on the Cass County Jail. They estimated that it would cost <br />$56,900.00 to repair it, and they proposed a short-term repair program (15 years or less) using <br />wood materials, which would be considerably less expensive than replacing or repairing the <br />deteriorating concrete. The Commission asked Mr. Krueger to review the, file on the Jail <br />Restoration Project to see if any report was made on the condition of the roof at that time. The <br />States Attorney was requested to investigate whether the County's Emergency Funds could be <br />used for the roof repair, and Mr. Eckert suggested looking into other areas of the budget where <br />funds might be available. The matter will be placed on the agenda for next week. <br /> <br />Upon the request of Scott Krueger, Mr. Larson moved al1d Mr. Eckert seconded to <br />authorize the Administrative Assistant to utilize an Intern from the North Dakota State University <br />at a cost of $500.00, plus tuition on the credits this person will receive, for a total cost to the <br />County of $680.00.; this being effective from now until August 1, 1984, with a two-week trial <br />period at Mr. Krueger's discretion. On roll call vote, the motion carried with all members <br />present voting "Aye". <br /> <br />Mr. Eckert reported that he talked to Judge Cynthia Rothe about replacing a County Court <br />Reporter who has resigned.' Judge Rothe will prepare a salary proposal for, the Commission's <br />consideration, and she would like some idea 'from the Commission of how long this person will be <br />hired 'because of the County's past discussions on the possibility of purchasing electronic <br />court reporti ng equipment. <br /> <br />Mr. Sondrall moved and Mr. Larson seconded to grant the Application for a Raffle Permit <br />for the Nora Lutheran Church of rural Gardner on the date of October 6, 1984,.
