BENSON COUNTY

NORTH DAKOTA

April 6, 2009

The Benson County commissioners met in regular session on Monday, April 6, 2009 at 8 a.m. in the commissioner room of the Benson County Courthouse in Minnewaukan. Commissioners present were Jason Lee, David Davidson, Curtis Hvinden, Lowell Haagenson and Michael N.

Steffan. The meeting was called to order by Chairman Lee.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Haagenson, to approve the minutes from the regular meeting of March 17, 2009 and the special meetings of March 25 and 26, 2009. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a proposal to rejoin the Devils Lake Basin Joint Water Resource District Board submitted by the Benson County Water Board.

Sheriff Steven J. Rohrer met with the board. He informed the board that people have been driving around the barriers on Old Hwy. #281.

He stated citations will be issued for this offense. The board discussed whether or not Old Hwy. #281 north of Minnewaukan should be cut so it is not trafficable. Rohrer commented on closing off the approaches on Old Hwy. #281 north of Hwy. #19, which are used to dock boats, due to safety issues. The board discussed when Old Hwy. #281 north of Minnewaukan should be opened to traffic. The board concluded it should not be opened for another week or two. Rohrer mentioned he received some complaints concerning the intersection of Old Hwy. #281 and Hwy. #2. He stated semi truck drivers etc., take Old Hwy. #281 by accident and it is hard for them to turn around to get back on the correct route. He stated signs are needed to direct drivers to new Hwy. #281. Hvinden stated the Devils Lake office of the ND DOT should be contacted concerning the issue. Rohrer questioned whether or not the highway patrol should be issuing citations for road restriction violations. Lee telephoned the highway patrol office in Devils Lake to see if officers have been patrolling Benson County for road restriction violations. The highway patrol office said officers are patrolling.

A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Steffan, to forgive interest accruing on the bill which is 365 days past due as of October 1, 2008 at the road department for Esmond Township. The reason the interest is being forgiven is that Esmond Township passed an excess levy to pay down the debt. Interest shall be forgiven commencing January 1, 2009 and it shall be forgiven as long as an excess mill levy is in place to pay down the past due amount.

Additional discussion was held on the issue. All members voted yes.
