On roll call <br />vote, the motion carried unanimously. <br />Mr. Larson moved and Mrs. Stanton seconded that the Chairman be authorized to send a letter to the <br />National Association of Counties declining payment of an additional $487.00, which is a special <br />assessment to save Federal Revenue Sharing; and that the Chairman state the County's position on the <br />Federal Revenue Sharing program. Motion carried unanimously. <br />Mr. Eckert reported that he discussed snow removal procedures at Bonanzaville with Ken McIntyre, <br />and he was informed that the County Road Department is contacted as soon as possible after a snowstorm to <br />clear the roads there. <br />On motion by Mr. Larson and seconded by Mrs. Stanton, the meeting was adjourned. <br />s Department, <br />REGULAR MEETING OF CASS COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS <br />FEBRUARY 11, 1986 <br />Chairman Alon Wieland called the meeting to order and upon roll call, all members were present. <br />Mr. Larson moved and Mrs. Stanton seconded that the minutes of the previous meeting be approved as <br />written. Motion carried. <br />Mr. William John Woell from the Davenport area appeared before the Board regarding a request he <br />made to the Clerk of the District Court on January 30, 1986, to look at a file currently held there. He <br />stated that he is a party in a lawsuit in District Court, and that there was a reversal handed down by <br />the North Dakota Supreme Court which was never entered into the file. His complaint to the Commission <br />was that an employee in the Clerk of Court's Office was less than courteous to him, and refused to make a <br />statement in writing to the effect that there was a document missing from the file. Mr. Woell requested <br />the Commission to conduct a thorough investigation as to the treatment he received in the Clerk of <br />Court's Office, and he requested something in writing from the Commission on their findings. <br />Mrs. Stanton asked Mr. Woell what he requested the Clerk's Office to put in writing? He stated <br />that he asked them for the condition of that file and what document was missing. Mrs. Stanton asked if <br />his attorney had neglected to file a document, and Mr. Woell stated that it is a distinct possibility. <br />He stated that he requested to have a judgement removed, but was told this required certain documentation <br />even though he showed them a copy of the Supreme Court ruling. Mr. Wieland questioned Mr. Woell's <br />appearance before the County Commission as far as what the Clerk of Court's Office can and cannot do. <br />Those rules would be according to the North Dakota Century Code. <br />Mrs. Stanton stated that she will not tolerate rudeness on the part of County employees, but there <br />are two sides to a story. Mr. Wieland stated that he investigated the matter from both sides, and he <br />suggested that each Commissioner conduct their own investigation and that it be placed back on the agenda <br />when a Commissioner so requests. <br />Mr. Larson moved and Mrs. Stanton seconded to change the make —up of the Salary Review Committee to <br />a total of nine consisting of five employees, three department heads and one Commissioner; with the <br />employees selecting their membership first and that every effort be made not to have a duplication of <br />departments. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. <br />Mrs. Stanton reported that the County's policy for replacement of County employees upon termination <br />of employment as adopted in 1985 gives the departments authority to hire staff replacement without <br />Commission approval. Mr. Larson stated that this does not give the Commission any control if they would <br />wish to eliminate a position. Mrs. Stanton moved and Mr. Larson seconded that the hiring of all County <br />employees, whether replacement or a new position, needs to be approved by the County Commission prior to <br />the hiring. Mr. Sondrall asked what would result if an employee terminated employment without notice, <br />and Mr. Wieland stated that the Commission could hold a special meeting, if necessary. At the call for <br />the question and upon roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. The Administrative Assistant will <br />notify the department heads of the change in policy. <br />
