Steve Rohrer, candidate for Benson County Sheriff, met with the board and explained his proposed plan for the sheriff’s department if elected.
At 10:00 a.m., the bid opening was held on project PW-466/PW-947. Morris Holen Jr. of Wold Engineering, Bruce Dokken of Dokken Construction, Gene Hager, highway superintendent, and James P.
Wang, state’s attorney, were present at this time. One bid was received for the project and was submitted by Dokken Construction. The bid was opened and in order. The total bid for the project by Dokken Construction was $137,502.25.
Dokken informed the board the figure used for borrow may be reduced as the county will need to haul some of the dirt as part of its contribution to the project.

The board was informed FEMA will only approve the road to be built to 14 ft.
