A motion was made by Lee, seconded by Haagenson, to reappoint Michael N. Steffan to the Devils Lake Task Force for a period of one year commencing November 7, 2007. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to allow employees a paid day off on November 23, 2007 to coincide with the Thanksgiving holiday. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

A motion was made by Lee, seconded by Haagenson, to have the chairman sign a Quit Claim Deed for repurchase by owner of Lots 7 and 8, Block 1, Original Knox City. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Gene Hager, road superintendent, met with the board. He informed the board the bridge known as the "Hellerud" bridge is closed and there is no intention of repairing and/or reopening it. The board reviewed a letter from Tilford and Lorraine Fossen dated October 31, 2007 regarding a bridge by the Peterson Coulee Channel and held discussion on the issue.

Steffan questioned if fishermen could get lake access off of old Hwy. #281 5 miles north of Minnewaukan. He stated the Game and Fish Department may consider putting a dock in that area.

A motion was made by Lee, seconded by Haagenson, to have the chairman sign the Maintenance Certification – County Federal Aid Project from the ND DOT stating all federal aid highway projects have been inspected and are being maintained in a good and safe condition for general public use. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Hager requested the board send a letter to the ND DOT stating a correction is needed on the Federal Aid System map relating to Oberon City. A motion was made by Lee, seconded by Haagenson, to send the letter as requested. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

James P. Wang, Benson County state’s attorney, arrived at the meeting.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Lee, to adopt the resolution. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Hager informed the board a separate resolution is needed for the "Roads Acting as Dams" plan. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Haagenson, to have the chairman sign the resolution when presented. All members voted yes.

The motion carried unanimously.

Hager notified the board of a severe winter weather table top exercise set for 6:00 p.m. on November 14, 2007 at Esmond.

Haagenson questioned the progress of road signing in Benson County. Hager stated the road department will start working on the road signing when time permits.

Attorney Mike Hurley and Glenna Gjestvang met with the board regarding two abatements filed on Lot 28, Block 1, Prairiewood Development in Sec.

16, Twp. 152, Rge. 63. Ellen Huffman, tax equalization director, presented the abatements to the board. Attorney Hurley commented that the taxes for this parcel of property were sent to someone who was thought to have a contract on Lot 28. It was found there was no contract on Lot 28 and the ownership issue was corrected. Attorney Hurley stated Gjestvang wants the value of the lot reduced for the 2005 and 2006 tax year and wants the property assessed as agricultural property. State’s Attorney Wang stated that once a subdivision is platted, each lot should be taxed commercially. Gjestvang stated her grievance with the taxes assessed on all the property in Prairiewood Development. State’s Attorney Wang commented the lot should not be considered agricultural property for tax purposes. A letter was presented to the board stating the Lohnes Township Board of Supervisors recommended the board accept the abatement.

Gjestvang stated Lot 28 is not currently for sale. Steffan recommended the property tax assessment remain "as is" for tax year 2007, however, because the landowner did not receive the tax statement on the property, he recommended the penalty and interest be waived. Attorney Hurley again requested the property valuation be reduced as there were other lots assessed as agricultural property in 2005 and 2006. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Haagenson, to grant an abatement on Lot 28, Block 1, Prairiewood Development in Sec. 16, Twp. 152, Rge. 63 for one-half of the assessed valuation for tax years 2005 and 2006 and to waive any interest and penalty incurred on that parcel of property for the tax years 2005 and 2006. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Morris Holen Jr. and Don Indvik, Wold

Engineering, met with the board regarding the three upcoming chip seal projects. Gene Hager was again present at this time. Holen stated the proposal deadline for engineering services is set for November 30, 2007.

Hager stated he met with the Benson County Water Board and an agreement was reached to install a low water crossing on the roadway between Sec. 21 and 28 in Twp. 151 Rge. 67 (Oberon Township). A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to close bridge #03-128-34.0 until the water crossing is constructed. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Thelma and Arland Paulson and Leo and Kathy Walker met with the board to discuss a letter sent to the board by Arland and Thelma Paulson dated October 17, 2007 regarding the Hellerud bridge. Leo Walker requested that notice of the Devils Lake Task Force meetings be published in the newspaper. Thelma Paulson commented on the poor condition of the township roadway in West Antelope Township between Sec. 16 and 21 and stated it needs to be closed. She informed the board the road was signed, but the sign is no longer there. State’s Attorney Wang informed her of the steps which need to be taken to close a section line. Paulson stated the whole portion of roadway does not need to be closed, only the bridge portion near the hill. Wang advised Paulson to contact the board of supervisors for West Antelope Township and request that the proper sign(s) be put into place stating the bridge is no longer trafficable. The township road between Sec. 8 and 9 in West Antelope Township was also discussed and Leo Walker questioned the need for the guardrails. The board concluded the area is part of the outlet project and the state of North Dakota would need to give permission for the guardrails to be removed.

State’s Attorney Wang reiterated that the Hellerud bridge is closed to traffic and will not be repaired. Thelma Paulson stated the bridge is on the historical register. Wang stated that does not mean it cannot be closed or must be repaired.

Paulson questioned the steps needed to put a Texas crossing in place.

The board reviewed a letter from Mike Connor of the Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource District Board dated October 25, 2007 regarding gauging information in Sec. 21, Oberon Township.

The board discussed the issue of allowing the social welfare director to allocate out, as he deems necessary, the wage increase to employees.

The board concluded that because there was no raise given last year, each employee will be allowed the $150.00 per month increase and the issue will be revisited for the 2009 budget.

The board discussed the plan for the multi-county social welfare district. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to provide notice of the board’s intent to form a Human Service District (NDCC 50-01.1-02 ) in collaboration with the counties of Benson, Ramsey and Towner and with a tentative implementation date of July 1, 2008. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board also reviewed the minutes from the Lake Region District Health Unit meeting of July 24, 2007.

A letter from Sheriff Steven J. Rohrer dated November 2, 2007 was presented to the board along with the mileage activity report of the sheriff’s department for October 2007.

The board reviewed the registration form needed to participate in the local update of census addresses (LUCA) program. The board opted to not participate in the program.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Lee, to transfer sufficient dollars from the County General Fund to the County Agent Fund to cover the shortfall of dollars created by the limitation of the mill levy. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
