Kogel also presented a Request For Design Exception from the South Dakota Department of Transportation on Project Number BRF 6215(00)   17-1. The bridge is located 1.6 miles west and 7.4 miles north of Artesian on 413th Avenue. The request is for a variance in allowable design headwater. The design allowable headwater is one foot below subgrade shoulder. The request is variance in allowable headwater to overtopping at the subgrade shoulder which would not be inundated with the 25-year design event.  It will lower the cost from $856,972.88 to $449,484.24. Motion by S. Larson, seconded by Ohlrogge, to approve the changes. All ayes. Motion carried.

Kogel presented a Program Description Division L of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, which appropriated $225 million to be awarded by DOT for a Competitive Highway Bridge Program. Eligible applicants are States that have a population density of less than 100 individuals per square mile. The funds must be used for highway bridge replacement and rehabilitation projects on any public roads that demonstrate cost savings by bundling multiple highway bridge projects. The Competitive Highway Bridge Program provides an opportunity to address significant challenges across the Nation for improving bridges that serve America. Sanborn County has an opportunity to apply for the funds for bridges across the James River coupling with Davison, Hanson, and Yankton Counties. Each county will be allowed a bridge. The one in Sanborn County that Brosz Engineering feels would be the one to replace would be on Road 12 on 221st Street in Jackson Township.  The county would be responsible for consulting fees which would be divided by the number of counties who would be applying for the grant.  Motion by S. Larson, seconded by Blindauer, to stipulate three or more counties would be necessary for Sanborn County to apply for the grant.  All ayes.  Motion carried. 

VARIANCES

Motion by Blindauer, seconded by Ohlrogge, to meet as a board of adjustment.

Penny Farris, Director of Equalization, presented a variance request for Dawn and Joel Rassel.  The request is for a front yard depth of not less than nineteen feet at Lots 13-18; Blk 1, Dunn’s Addn., Woonsocket.  Motion by S. Larson, seconded by Ohlrogge, to approve the variance for Dawn and Joel Rassel. All ayes. Motion carried.

James and Kim Cross requested a variance for a minimum lot requirement of less than ten acres. They will be gifting the land to their son so a plat is not required. Motion by Ohlrogge, seconded by S. Larson, to approve the variance. All aye. Motion carried.
