BENSON COUNTY

NORTH DAKOTA

July 1, 2009

The Benson County commissioners met in regular session Wednesday, July 1, 2009 at 8 a.m. in the commissioner room of the Benson County Courthouse at Minnewaukan, ND. Commissioners present were Jason Lee, Curtis Hvinden, Lowell Haagenson, David Davidson and Michael N. Steffan. The meeting was called to order by Chairman Lee. Also present was Richard Peterson of the Benson County Farmers Press.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Haagenson, to reappoint Jason Lee to the Governor’s Outlet Committee for a period of four years. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a proposed plan of

distribution for EMS tax dollars collected. The plan would allow distribution of the money to area ambulance services based on the amount of taxable acres in each ambulance service area. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to approve the proposed plan for distributing EMS tax dollars collected. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a letter from the Red River Basin Commission dated June 25, 2009 regarding funding for the commission. A motion was made by Hvinden, seconded by Davidson, to not fund the Red River Basin Commission for the year 2010. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed cost estimates received for the 2007-2008 audit of the county. A motion was made by Haagenson, seconded by Steffan, to hire Brady-Martz Associates of Grand Forks, ND to perform the 2007-2008 audit, provided the audit be performed in the 2009 calendar year. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed information regarding interested commissioners serving on the standing committee for the North Dakota County Commissioners Association.

The board also reviewed a memo from the ND DOT dated June 25, 2009 regarding emergency repair guidelines.

Benson County State’s Attorney James P. Wang, Don Trnka and Lester Ellingson Jr. of the highway department arrived at the meeting at 8:45 a.m.

Ellingson explained the repairs needed to the

1981 truck operated by the highway department.

Ellingson concluded the truck is not worth repairing. Haagenson presented an estimate for the purchase of a replacement truck. Ellingson also presented information on a truck he looked at located at Ag Resources in Maddock. Trnka stated the truck at Ag Resources would be under warranty through this season. Wang stated an advertisement for bids needs to be placed in the newspaper if the purchase price is in excess of $20,000. Haagenson questioned the progress on FEMA projects.

Trnka stated a new secretary started at the highway department. Trnka stated Old Hwy. #281 has been closed north of Hwy. #19 to the Brinsmade Road due to water on the roadway. He gave an update on water issues with several other roadways.

Trnka also stated the new computer system has been installed in his office. He discussed the money received from SB 2012 for weather-related road issues. The board concluded the majority of the money should be used for graveling. Trnka stated federal aid roads should be the first priority.

The board further discussed the purchase of a replacement gravel truck. The board suggested leasing the truck for a one-year period and then purchasing the truck. Trnka stated he would check into this issue but he thought perhaps advertising for bids would be the best option.

Trnka talked about OSHA and MSHA issues with the board. He requested permission to purchase a 200 gallon service tank with an electric pump and sell the bulk truck used by the highway department. He also requested permission from the board to advertise the 1981 gravel truck for sale. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Haagenson, to sell the two trucks and purchase a 200 gallon service tank with an electric pump.

All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

Trnka questioned why the highway department pays the electric bill for the Rangen Hill radio tower. A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Hvinden, to have the bill for the radio tower paid through the General Fund rather than the highway department. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

The board reviewed a proposed contract for employment between Benson County and Gene Hager.

Trnka stated it may be necessary to hire another truck driver. Hvinden questioned if Trnka selected a foreman for the department. Trnka stated he has not yet decided.

A motion was made by Steffan, seconded by Hvinden, to have the chairman sign the proposed contract for employment between Benson County and Gene Hager. All members voted yes. The motion carried unanimously.

David Daeley, VSO officer, met with the board to give an update on issues involving his office. He stated he will be going to an upcoming seminar at Bismarck.
