Sanborn County Commissioners proceedings

JULY 16, 2013

The Sanborn County Commissioners met in regular session on Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at 9:00 a.m. with Chairman Ebersdorfer presiding.  Other members present were: P. Larson, Blindauer, Ohlrogge and S. Larson. Also present was Deputy Auditor Regynski.  Motion by S. Larson, seconded by Ohlrogge, to approve the July 2, 2013, minutes as presented.  Motion carried.
Sheriff Fridley met with the Board. Discussion was held regarding alternate power to the third floor in case of power failure. Ohlrogge reported an estimate of $25,000. Grant funds will be researched.   Matter tabled until end of the year.
Marla Feistner, County Health Nurse, met with the Board to give her quarterly report.
Lee Goergen, Highway Supervisor/Weed Supervisor, met with the Board. Goergen reported an updated estimate of $11,916.00 not including  wiring for the fuel card pump at the highway shed. Goergen will proceed with the process.  Because of the many complaints received about the new signage that has been installed around the county, Ron Gillen from Brosz Engineering and possibly representation from Pierre will meet with the board at 10:00 a.m. on August 6th. The township boards and any other interested people are encouraged to attend.
Discussion was held on the bridge on 416th Avenue, 1/4 mile north of 230th Street.  The bridge has been barricaded due to deterioration and can’t be repaired. Goergen reported the expense to replace the bridge is too great for the county. The board recommends closing the road which must be a township decision. No action was taken.
Darren Swenson and Dale Swenson met with the Board. They are still waiting for the railroad to get back to them.
An estimate from Claude Miller to clean Ditch 14 in the amount of $1,800 was received. A culvert on Mark Snedeker’s land, which is on Ditch 14, also needs lowered. The new culvert plus installing is estimated at $5,000. Motion by Ohlrogge, seconded by P. Larson, to clean Ditch 14 and put in a 48-inch  culvert. Motion carried.
Discussion was held regarding the personnel policy regarding pre-employment physicals for new employees. Motion by S. Larson, seconded by Ohlrogge, to amend Section VI, E. (2) of the policy manual to read: “The physical examination required will be the Commercial Driver Fitness Determination.”  Motion carried.
