A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Steffan, to approve the minutes from the regular meeting of April 6, 2009 and the special meeting of April 17, 2009. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a letter from the ND DOT dated March 31, 2009 regarding a traffic safety contract for year 2009. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Hvinden, to have the chairman sign the contract. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

A motion by Haagenson, seconded by Hvinden, to forgive interest accruing on the bill which is 365 days past due as of October 1, 2008 at the road department for Riggin Township. The reason the interest is being forgiven is that Riggin 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. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed an e-mail dated April 16, 2009 regarding stimulus money from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act available for projects that will improve energy efficiency.

James P. Wang, Benson County State’s Attorney, arrived at the meeting at 8:20 a.m.

The board reviewed a letter from Central Power Electric Cooperative dated April 3, 2009 regarding the Pleasant Lake to WAPA 115kV Transmission Line Environmental Review.

The board reviewed the mileage/activity report for the sheriff’s department for March 2009.

Lee gave a report on the meeting in Bismarck between the governor, the Spirit Lake Tribe and Benson County regarding the issue of removing the 4% materials tax to obtain stimulus money to proceed with the Wood-Rutten Road paving project.

Gene Hager met with the board regarding assessments of flood damage.

He presented photos to the board showing damage near the Gavin Foss residence. Hager requested permission from the board to proceed with repair of the road at Fillmore. He indicated this emergency work will be 100% funded by FEMA if it exceeds $5,000. Morris Holen Jr. of Wold Engineering came to the meeting to discuss flood damage issues.

John Beckstrand came to the meeting at 8:45 a.m.

Holen stated if paving is not included in the emergency designation, it will need to be cost shared 80%/20%.

Hager stated he reconsidered the issue of the board appointing him as applicant agent for the 2009 flood. He stated he will work on doing the initial damage assessments and then he requested the board transfer the applicant agent work to the new highway superintendent.

Holen advised the board of possible costs assessed to Benson County for the road damage projects.

Brian Maddock came to the meeting at 8:50 a.m.

A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Haagenson, to proceed with repair of the bridge near Gavin Foss’s and Federal Aid Roads CMC-0314, 0315 and 0328. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Hager discussed a road east of Maddock which has several spots which are breaking up. This is a project which was set for seal coat and the seal coat cannot take place if the road is in bad condition.

Holen said the state is not in favor of dropping the project and stated patching could be added into the project if needed. Hager questioned what would be involved in dropping off five miles of the damaged road set for seal coat. Holen stated it would need to be negotiated with the contractor. The board concluded a cost estimate should be obtained for patching the road prior to seal coating.

Steffan commented that the contractor should be contacted to see if the project could be dropped. He also suggested removing the pavement on the road and returning it to gravel.

Haagenson asked Holen if he knew of any updated information on SB 2012. Holen said the last information he heard of was the amount allocated for roads was going to be reduced from 120 million to 43 million.

State’s Attorney Wang left the meeting at 9:20 a.m.

Charles Paulson came to the meeting at 9:25 a.m. and indicated maps have been sent out to townships to get a list of damages.

Holen recommended a change order be made and the patches be made on the road near Maddock prior to chip sealing rather than dropping the project.

Maddock stated the water board received several requests from townships for the water board to purchase culverts to be used by the townships. Hager stated a load of culverts would cost approximately $15,000. Maddock said the culverts would need to be distributed on a first come, first served basis and only a limited amount of money will be allocated.

Gene Hager left the meeting at 9:50 a.m.

The board concluded to let the water board decide on whether or not to purchase culverts to be used by the townships. Maddock stated the board will request a list of culverts needed throughout the county.

Beckstrand informed the board of issues concerning the Kurtz Dam in Benson County.

Maddock and Beckstrand left the meeting at 10:05 a.m.

Scott Knoke and Margaret Tweten met with the board. Knoke informed the board Jenny Steinhaus will be resigning her position with the NDSU Extension office. He stated he will advertise for a new employee to fill the position. Tweten stated the position is cost shared and Benson County’s portion would be approximately $6,500 if the position is advertised as a full-time position. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Hvinden, to advertise the position. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously. Tweten mentioned a commissioner could serve on the search committee for a new employee if interested.

Haagenson and Steffan both volunteered to serve on the search committee.

Joe Mayer of Butler Machine met with the board regarding advertising for bids for new motor graders for the road department. The board thought the bid opening could be set for May 19, 2009. The board discussed advertising the old blades for public for sale to see if they would be worth more than the guaranteed buy-back.

The board reviewed the contract and contract bond on chip seal projects SC-0319(061) & SC-0328(066). A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Steffan, to have the chairman sign the contract. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a letter from the NDIRF dated March 30, 2009 regarding the annual meeting and election.

All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Haagenson, to amend a motion made at the April 17, 2009 meeting to have all administrative money received for the flood of 2009 go through the Emergency Administrative Fund rather than the General Fund provided a sub-fund be created to track amounts paid to the applicant agent. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a cost estimate for repairing the floor in the Maddock county shop building dated April 20, 2009. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to table the issue. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.
