The meeting was called to order by Chairman Steffan. Other people present were Richard Peterson of the Benson County Farmers Press.

A motion was made by Lee, seconded by Brown, to approve the minutes from the regular meeting of May 20, 2008. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a letter from Rod Cavanaugh, Bureau of Indian Affairs, dated May 29, 2008, regarding the transfer of fee simple land to the US in trust for the benefit of the Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe. A copy of this letter was presented to Benson County State’s Attorney James P. Wang.

The board discussed ownership of the old Hwy. #2 through Leeds, ND.

More information will be obtained and presented to the board on this issue.

The board reviewed a letter from the NDDOT dated May 20, 2008 regarding the special roads fund. A copy of this document was provided to the road department. The board concluded the NDDOT will be contacted to determine if anything would be available for Benson County.

The board discussed the amount of people utilizing the VSO office.

The board concluded a letter will be sent to the VSO officer requesting information.

A copy of a letter to CC Recycling from the ND Dept. of Health dated May 20, 2008 was presented to the board regarding the removal of scrap tires.

Jenny Steinhaus from the Extension office met with the board regarding the grant portion of the Family Nutrition Program (FNP). A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Hvinden, to support the program and have the chairman sign the approval form for FNP funding.

All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Gene Hager, county highway superintendent, met with board. Special road funds through the NDDOT were discussed.

Hager stated James P. Wang, Benson County state’s attorney, telephoned him and requested larger speed limit signs and flags be placed on Old Highway 281 north of Minnewaukan.

Hager commented on the training/certification session he and others will be attending in Bismarck put on by MSHA.

The board reviewed a notice of hearing regarding Enbridge Pipelines.

John Beckstrand, Brian Maddock and Ken Hoffert, Benson County Water Board, and Jean Olson, secretary for the water board, met to discuss the ownership of Bouret’s Dam. Beckstrand stated the water board has not taken any action on this issue as the water board takes the position the State of ND owns the dam and not Benson County. Maddock stated a document showing the state owns the dam was on record at the recorder’s office. This document is dated 1938.

James P. Wang, Benson County state’s attorney, arrived at the meeting at 9:35 a.m.

Beckstrand recalled that the board agreed some time ago to contribute money for repairs, but not take over ownership. Wang explained there is no levy in Benson County for dam repairs so how can the state determine Benson County has money to own and maintain it. The estimated cost to repair the dam is in excess of $100,000.00. Wang suggested writing a letter to the state indicating there is no money to repair the dam. Peterson stated he thinks the dam is an asset to Benson County. Wang advised the board to send a letter to the state indicating that if no action is taken by the state to repair the dam, it will be breached. Wang agreed to prepare a letter to send to the state. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Hvinden, to have the state’s attorney write a letter to the State of ND regarding Bouret’s Dam based on the advice and input of the Benson County Water Board. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously. State’s Attorney Wang suggested also signing the area to caution the public on dangerous areas.

Beckstrand stated Old Highway 281 north of Minnewaukan is dangerous to fishermen and all cars are not obeying the speed limit.

The board discussed taxation of property when it is transferred to the Spirt Lake Sioux Tribe.

Wang discussed a bill received for a prisoner that was held at the North Central Regional Correctional Center (NCRCC) in Rugby, ND.

Steffan suggested a procedure or contract be put into place for when an inmate is to be held for Benson County at the NCRCC. State’s Attorney Wang stated he will write a letter to the NCRCC stating that when a prisoner is being held, Benson County must be contacted immediately. A motion was made by Brown, seconded by Lee, to send payment to the NCRCC amounting to $30.00 for each day the prisoner was held. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Lee read an e-mail received from the NDDOT on what the special road fund generally funds.
