Agreement between Kay County and Kay Wind, LLC (an agreement for road use, repair and improvements):  Commissioner Shanks said this agreement addresses the responsibilities of certain roads within Kay County.  Shanks commented that Gate Road will be the main road used during the construction of the wind turbines.  He said two inches of rock will be put on roads that already have rock and four inches of rock will be put on the roads currently without rock.  Shanks stated the Road Crossing Permits would be obtained as needed instead of all at one time and the county will be reimbursed for any work the county does.

 

Commissioner Johnson questioned damages possibly done to roads in his district and asked if he would be reimbursed for those damages.

 

DA Hermanson referred to Article III Maintenance and Repair of Designated Roads, 3.2 Repair of Designated Roads on the Agreement.  Hermanson said if the county can prove the damage was caused by the trucks of the developer involved then the Developer shall reimburse the County the reasonable costs of repairs.

 

Chairman Shanks noted there will be a landowner’s meeting tomorrow night.
