OF THE BOARD OF
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
BENSON COUNTY
NORTH DAKOTA
July 5, 2005
The Benson County Commissioners met in regular session on Tuesday, July 5,
2005 at 9 a.m. Commissioners present were Dwain Brown, Curtis Hvinden, Ed Ripplinger, Jason Lee and Barry Cox. The meeting was called to order by Chairman Lee.
A motion was made by Cox, seconded by Brown, to approve the minutes of the regular meeting of June 21, 2005 and the special meeting of June 28, 2005.
All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
The board reviewed a letter from the city of Minnewaukan dated June 20, 2005, regarding annexing the Benson County Highway Department and the Social Welfare Economic Assistance Building into the city limits of Minnewaukan. The board expressed its concern that there may be additional fees/costs the county would be required to pay as a result of the annexation.
A request was received from Lana Johnson, Benson County clerk of court, for the board to set the county portion of the marriage license fee. Senate Bill 2361 increased the marriage license fee as of July 1, 2005 and the portion allocated to the county is to be set by the Board of County Commissioners.

The board reviewed a letter from James P. Wang, Benson County state’s attorney, dated July 1, 2005, concerning the cleanup from storm damage to Great River Energy’s 230-kV transmission line. The board agreed to have the letter serve as its response to the letter received from Great River Energy dated June 22, 2005.
The board also reviewed a letter from the ND DOT dated June 27, 2005, regarding 2006-2007 federal aid programs. A copy of this letter was provided to the Benson County Highway Department.
Further, the board reviewed a letter from the ND Department of Insurance dated June 27, 2005, regarding 2005 legislative changes to the State Bonding Fund.
John Beckstrand, Brian Maddock and Carl Duchscher, Benson County Water Resource Board; Dean Markestad; Tom Gilbertson; Matt Gilbertson; Wendell Grondahl, chairman of South Viking Township; Ralph Westby; and Lannie Fossen, supervisor of South Viking Township, met with the board regarding flooding of a county road in the Moose Creek area in North and South Viking Townships. They indicated a drain/culvert needs to be cleaned out two miles south of Maddock to help alleviate the flooding. Dean Markestad suggested setting up a water assessment district. John Beckstrand stated that several years ago the NRCS would not agree to assist in the matter because the land in the area is so flat. Comment was made that the surrounding landowners may need to assist in paying the costs involved. Carl Duchscher stated he will set up a meeting with John Paczkowski of the State Water Commission regarding forming a water assessment district.
Johanson Construction met with the board regarding the handicapped parking area at the courthouse. The bid received for the project was for a 26’x16′
area. The board asked that the dimensions be redrawn to include a larger area.
At 10 a.m. the bid letting was held on PW224 and PW222. Todd Weber, Harvey Sand & Gravel; Gene Hager, Benson County Highway Department; and James P.
Wang, Benson County state’s attorney, were present at this time. Gene Hager indicated the estimate given by FEMA for the projects was $74,000. Two bids were received for the projects. Wang reviewed the bid bond submitted by Harvey Sand & Gravel. He advised it was satisfactory to meet the bid bond requirements. He recommended the bid of Harvey Sand & Gravel be opened. The bid received from Harvey Sand & Gravel was $101,416.50. Wang reviewed the bid bond submitted by Swanson Gravel. He advised it was satisfactory to meet the bid bond requirements. He recommended the bid of Swanson Gravel be opened. The bid received from Swanson Gravel was $65,329.00. A motion was made by Cox, seconded by Brown, to accept the low bid of Swanson Gravel pending approval by FEMA. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
At 10:30 a.m. Paul Halko, district manager for the US Fish & Wildlife Service, met with the board regarding drainage issues in Normania Township.
Also present at this time were Gene Hager, Benson County Highway Department; Carl Duchscher, Brian Maddock and John Beckstrand, Benson County Water Resource Board; and Jean Olson, secretary of the Benson County Water Resource Board. Halko described the various procedures the US Fish & Wildlife Service follows in flood situations. He explained that approximately 4” of sediment could be removed to allow for drainage from the Hausmann slough. The width of the cleanout would not be a concern.
Further, the north end of the slough could be built up to direct the flow of water to the south. The board expressed its concern with flooding of the McConnell slough and the ability of the water to pass through a culvert under US 2. Halko explained how third party conversions work. The board discussed placing a culvert near McConnell’s property. Halko stated a culvert could be put into place as long as its purpose was to “equalize”
water and not “drain” water.
The board reviewed the narrative report for June 2005 submitted by Shelley Aabrekke, Benson County public health nurse.
The board also reviewed a diagram prepared by Johanson Construction of how the handicapped parking area will be constructed. The board concluded that if the area was constructed according to the diagram, it would be
acceptable and the project could be started.
The board contacted Minnewaukan City Auditor Laura Weed regarding annexation of the Social Welfare Economic Assistance Building and the Benson County Highway Department into the city limits of Minnewaukan. A motion was made by Cox, seconded by Ripplinger, to send a response letter to the city of Minnewaukan stating the commissioners are opposed to the annexation. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
A motion was made by Cox, seconded by Hvinden, to transfer $57,000 from the County Highway Tax Fund to the Road & Bridge Fund and $17,000 from the General Fund to the Road & Bridge Fund. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Paul Lee of KLJ offered his support on the lift stations. Drainage from new US 281 was discussed.

A motion was made by Carlson to renew the Memorial Building CD for a term of six months. Lund seconded. The motion carried unanimously.

A motion was made by Lund to appoint Peterson, Motis and Weed to the budget committee. Carlson seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
The council discussed trees with Dutch elm disease. Carlson will compile a list of trees that need to be cut down. The city will notify citizens if they have a diseased tree on their property.
An informal request was made to the council to vacate E street. Carlson stated that if a street was vacated it would go to property owners in the city not in the township. A formal request with the required signatures would have to be submitted to the city office before the council would make a decision.
Motis asked Weed to send letters to the owners of trucks asking them not to use their jake brakes within half a mile of town.
A motion was made by Motis to hold the first reading revising Chapter 4, Fire Protection. Lund seconded. The motion carried unanimously. The revision will include allowing recreational burning within the city.

The council decided to wait to see if there is a Presidential Disaster Declaration before considering buying new pumps.
A motion was made by Motis to pay Allen Nord $100 for his help on the lift station. Peterson seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
A motion was made by Carlson to adopt the final resolution annexing the following property into the city:
Ebach Construction
Humphrey Memorial Park
School (formerly St. James)
Fish Cleaning Station
Randy’s Bait Shop – Pat Feist
City Lift Station – Mark Motis
City Property West of Feist and Motis
Railroad Property South
There will be a $15 per month user fee for water service for anyone outside the city limits. Roger Huffman will be excluded because of an easement he gave the city.

Peterson approached the council regarding the water fund. The fund is in the red and has lost over $17,000 in the first six months of this year.
This does not include expenses incurred for the problems with the lift station in July. The fund will be even deeper in debt after these expenses are paid. He did not see where costs could be cut so the only other option would be to raise rates. This will be reviewed at the next meeting.
Huffman will be pouring a slab of concrete at the bank building. The cost should be around $800.
