COUNTY COMMISSIONERS

BENSON COUNTY

NORTH DAKOTA

March 6, 2009

The Benson County commissioners met in regular session on Friday, March 6, 2009 at 9 a.m. in the commissioner room of the Benson County Courthouse in Minnewaukan, ND. Commissioners present were Jason Lee, David Davidson, Curtis Hvinden, Lowell Haagenson and Michael N. Steffan. Richard Peterson of the Benson County Farmers Press was also present. The meeting was called to order by Chairman Lee.

A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Haagenson, to approve the minutes from the regular meeting of February 17, 2009. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a letter from the Rolette County Commission dated February 23, 2009 regarding Lake Region Law Enforcement Center issues.

Benson County Transportation Director Susan Fossen met with the board and requested a pay increase for two drivers in Minnewaukan. She also indicated she received a letter from Maddock Community Development requesting a donation.

Fossen suggested a gift certificate for a free bus ride for the donation. Fossen also presented a resignation letter dated Feb. 2, 2009 from Russell Ramsfield. Ramsfield indicated he would be able to drive during the summer months if needed. Fossen discussed regionalization of the transportation system. Peterson indicated he talked with Bill Keith concerning this issue and Devils Lake has been selected as a location for a pilot project. He indicated one person in Bismarck will handle eight regions and the state will own the buses, etc. Fossen presented a copy of SB 2223 on this issue. Peterson expressed his concern with the program in that all local control will be lost and once the program is put into place, it will not be able to revert back to the former system. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Hvinden, to grant the increase for the two drivers in Minnewaukan and to accept the resignation of Russell Ramsfield.

All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Haagenson stated he talked with Dennis Weed, acting highway superintendent, regarding the fees charged by the highway department. Weed indicated to Haagenson that the equipment rates were recently increased to equal the rates charged by the contractors hired by Benson County to assist with snow removal. Weed questioned if the rate should now be returned to the rate formerly charged. Lee stated his concern was that Benson County needs to be consistent with the rates charged by private contractors. Discussion was held on whether or not the rates charged equal the expenses for the machines and operators. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Davidson, to reduce the rates to the former amounts, to review the equipment rental rates charged by the county at the end of the year and to have the rates increase again if private contractors need to be hired in the future. All members voted yes.

The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed the equipment rental contracts submitted by Maddock Construction and Ritterman Trucking. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to sign the equipment rental contract. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Nelson County Sheriff Kelly Jahnke and Benson County Sherriff Steven J. Rohrer met with the board to give a presentation on the Learn System for rural law enforcement departments. He indicated the program costs are $25 per month per user which would result in a $100 cost per month to Benson County.

State’s Attorney James P. Wang came to the meeting at 10 a.m.

Jahne indicated on-site training will be provided to the users of the Learn System. Rohrer presented city patrol summaries for February 2009 along with his activity report for January, 2009.

Rohrer discussed a report which needed DEM response. The board asked for Rohrer’s input on the Learn System.

Tim Sattler and Roni Lillehaugen, RDO, met with the board regarding future equipment purchases for the road department. Sattler presented information on a new blade produced by John Deere.

Charles Paulson of the Department of Emergency Management (DEM) met with the board to give a progress report on the activities of his office.

The board reviewed an issue in which the DEM was unable to be contacted.

A special meeting of the Benson County Water Board was held to discuss information on Bouret Dam. People present at this time were Allan Howard; Ben Varnson, Upper Sheyenne Joint Basin Board; Leona Bouret; Gail Hanson; Don Hanson; Brittany Hanson and Andrew Morin Sr., Spirit Lake Fish & Wildlife Service; Brian Maddock and John Beckstrand, Benson County Water Board; Peter Larson; Charles Paulson, Benson County DEM; and Jean Olson, Benson County Water Board Secretary.

State’s Attorney Wang explained that he is still waiting for an Attorney General’s Opinion as to ownership of the dam. Beckstrand presented information as to what is on record at the Benson County Recorder’s Office as to ownership of the dam. Wang stated there is a statute in place which states the State of ND has the authority to turn the dam over to Benson County. Morin gave input that the tribe would like to see the dam repaired and the impacts which could arise if it is not. Donald Hanson said the area is used frequently for a recreation area. Maddock stated people living downstream may be jeopardized if the dam should fail. The estimated costs presented for removal of the dam were between $30,000.00 and $60,000.00. Information was received that the ND State Water Commission may be willing to assist in paying to repair the dam.

Peterson stated the dam is not a liability to the county and should remain in place. The estimated costs presented for repairing the dam were $110,000.00 which would include a fish passage.

At this time, the estimated contributions which could be received to repair the dam are $30,000.00 — State Water Commission; $27,500.00

— Game & Fish Dept.; $1,500.00 — Upper Sheyenne Basin Board; $12,000.00 — Fish & Wildlife; and $12,000.00 Cass County Board. The Devils Lake Basin Board and the Spirit Lake Tribe may also be willing to contribute. The amount requested from Benson County is $21,000.00 and Benson County would need to act as the sponsor for the project.

Varson presented information on lidar mapping and presented a list of all the dams in Benson County. The consensus of the people present and the water board was that the dam should be repaired. It was suggested that perhaps the State Water Commission would assist with the engineering. Davidson questioned when the funds from Benson County would need to be available.

The board consented to the water board getting more accurate estimates as to costs of the project.

Morris Holen Jr. and Bob Indvik of Wold Engineering met with the board and presented a map depicting ages of payment/overlay and chip seal on roads. Discussion was held on what can be done to resolve the issue between the State of ND and the Spirit Lake Tribe regarding the 4% materials tax assessed on projects. No agreement was reached between the state and the tribe by the designated deadline regarding the materials tax so the stimulus money allocated to Benson County could not be used to pave the Wood-Rutten Road. Steffan stated his aggravation of not being able to set up a meeting with the tribe to discuss the 4% materials tax issue. Holen stated Benson County may be in jeopardy of losing some federal aid dollars allocated because it is not being used. The board reviewed e-mails from Bryon Fuchs, ND DOT, dated February 19 and 23, 2009 regarding the stimulus money.

Commissioner Davidson left the meeting at 12: 53 p.m.

Holen suggested the board focus on the Hwy. #30 project at this time as the Wood-Rutten Road is no longer an option. The board concluded to have State’s Attorney Wang prepare a letter to Paul Benning, ND DOT, to inform him Benson County will not be able to use the stimulus money allocated.

The board discussed a request to allow Twete Inc.

of Devils Lake, ND to place radio equipment on the tower at Rangen Hill. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to grant the request. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed an estimate for replacing flooring in the recorder’s office. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Hvinden, to replace the flooring. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board discussed hiring a new highway superintendent. The board concluded to contact one of the previous applicants to discuss the wages and benefits for the position.

A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Steffan, to transfer $5,000.00 from the State Revenue Sharing Fund to the Disaster Emergency Fund. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a communication tower lease between Benson County and Devils Lake Equipment for placement of radio equipment on the tower located in the NW? of Sec. 2, Twp. 152, Rge. 69 (Rangen Hill Tower). A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Hvinden, to have the chairman sign the lease. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Hvinden, to pay the $125.00 membership dues to the ND Association of County Engineers. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a progress report dated March 6, 2009 from VSO David Daeley.

The board also reviewed a profit and loss report from the road department from February 2009.

A letter form the Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe dated February 27, 2009 was presented to the board regarding the transfer of fee simple lands to the US in trust for the benefit of the Spirit Lake Tribe.

The board reviewed a letter from Jeff Bitz of ND Insurance Department, dated February 24, 2009 regarding the possibility of assessing bondholders a premium.

The board also reviewed a letter from Paul Benning, ND DOT, dated February 26, 2009 regarding projects SC-0328(066) and SC-0319(061).

A motion passed to adjourn at 2:25 p.m.

City Auditor Pat Robbins reported she had checked with the Devils Lake District Department of Transportation (DOT) on a pump for the park. She is waiting for a decision from the DOT.

The council was questioned about the Legion paying for garbage service. It was decided the Legion is used only for occasional community social functions and the party using the hall pays the garbage charge.

Discussion was held on correspondence from the DOT concerning transportation enhancement grants.

It was decided this would not apply to the city of Knox.

The next meeting will be held Friday, April 10 at 7 p.m. at the Knox Fire Hall.
