OFFICIAL PROCEEDINGS
OF THE BOARD OF
COUNTY COMMISSIONERS
BENSON COUNTY
NORTH DAKOTA
November 15, 2005
The Benson County Commissioners met in regular session on Tuesday, November 15, 2005 at 9 a.m. Commissioners present were Jason Lee, Curtis Hvinden, Ed Ripplinger and Dwain Brown. Barry Cox was absent. The meeting was called to order by Chairman Lee.
A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Brown, to approve the minutes of the regular meeting on November 2, 2005. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
Brad Darr and Grant Levi, NDDOT, met with the board regarding the state abandoning the old portion of U.S. Hwy. #281 when the new portion is trafficable. Levi informed the board the state is willing to work with the county in keeping portions of the roadway open if necessary. Darr stated the concrete barriers will be removed when the road is abandoned north of Minnewaukan and the old roadway will be eroded away. Commissioner Ripplinger stated the county cannot afford to maintain the old roadway.
James P. Wang, Benson County State’s Attorney, commented that the county would have liability issues if it assumed responsibility for the old roadway. The board suggested a meeting be set up with the board of supervisors of the affected townships and the city of Minnewaukan to get their input on this issue. The board will then nominate one representative from each entity to serve on a committee to determine what portions of the old roadway are necessary for access. The board concluded it will meet with representatives of the affected townships and the city of Minnewaukan at its next meeting on December 6, 2005.
Commissioner Ripplinger questioned the county auditor as to why the $90,000.00 has not been paid to the city of Maddock for the multi-purpose building. The auditor stated there has not been any written signed agreement or any other documents presented to the board in return for the $90,000.00. Ripplinger stated the money is to be paid out regardless if there is a written agreement or not as there is currently a gentleman’s agreement in place. State’s Attorney Wang stated the paperwork is in progress and a written agreement must be in place prior to the money being issued.
At 10:00 a.m. the annual tax sale was held. People present for the sale were Fred and Gloria Vetsch and Lowell Baustad.
Lowell Baustad submitted the high bid of $325.00 for Block 9 in Fillmore, Benson County, ND. A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Brown, to have the chairman sign a county deed transferring the property to Lowell Baustad. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
Kelly Wang submitted the high bid of $217.28 on the property described as Lots 13 & 14, Block 18, Original, Warwick City. A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Brown, to have the chairman sign a county deed to Kelly Wang. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
No bid was received for Lots 7 & 8, Diamond Beach Subdivision in Sec. 13, Twp. 152, Rge. 63.
The board reviewed a letter dated November 10, 2005, written to the Department of Insurance, State Bonding Fund, by State’s Attorney Wang regarding Bond Claim #71 filed by the Benson County Housing Authority.
The board also reviewed a letter from Dwayne J. Oster, NDRIN, dated November 8, 2005, regarding grant monies available to counties.
Information from the October 12, 2005 meeting of the Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource District Board was presented to the board.
The board reviewed the proposed "Call for Bids" for the purchase of three new motor graders.
The board also reviewed a memo from the county auditor dated November 14, 2005, regarding budget issues.
A motion was made by Ripplinger, seconded by Brown, to rescind the motion made at the November 2, 2005 meeting which transferred $3,500.00 from the General Fund to the Emergency Administration Fund. All members voted yes.
The motion carried unanimously.
A motion carried unanimously to adjourn the meeting.
