Writs and transports with Kay County Sheriff Department:  Sheriff Van Hoesen told it has been a normal routine and getting ready to go after more inmates to bring to court.

 

Attorney Megan Holden said she was here representing the Town of Braman regarding a REAP & CDBG Grant the town received.  She said the grant was to put in new power lines and the engineer recommended going 28 feet from centerline of the road and Ms. Holden was here seeking approval.  Commissioner Skidmore said he spoke with the Assistant District Attorney Billie Chrz and together they both believed this to be a problem mainly because of ditch work (he said the ADA mentioned Noble County had similar problems).  Commissioner Skidmore said he has talked with several different people and NODA regarding this matter.  Skidmore said he needs 33 feet placement from the center line.  Commissioner Johnson commented he agrees with Skidmore and he mentioned problems with placement and named several different issues this could cause.  DA Hermanson asked how they came up with 28 feet.  Attorney Holden said the engineer; she said will need to revisit this matter with the engineer.

 

Motion was made by Shanks and seconded by Skidmore approving and authorizing Requisitioning Officer-Kelli Rader, Tami Hicks; Receiving Agent-Amanda Beaston, Michelle Mollet; Inventory Clerks-Michelle Mollet for the Kay County Health Departments accounts.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye.

Motion was made by Shanks and seconded by Skidmore approving to purchase off state contract a 2016 Ford F350 for Dale Township Fire Department.  Commissioner Shanks said this is for a REAP Grant for approximately $24,000.  He noted the county will pay for out of the general government fund and NODA will reimburse the county.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye.  

 

 

Road and Bridge Projects/Circuit Engineering District (CED) No.8 Road and Bridge Projects:  Commissioner Skidmore reported Enviro Clean crew has been out working on sites that have not been visited.  He noted his crews have been hauling rock and sand getting a detour ready for the closure of Hubbard Road I-35 overpass.  Skidmore said he purchased a loader at a surplus auction and crews have been getting it ready for use to lad sand at the river for roads and he has been checking in the expense of pushing sand up at two available sandpits.  Crews have been grading roads and working on FEMA project, putting in culverts on “O” Street and patching holes with rock where needed.

 

Commissioner Shanks noted his crews had the graders out blading and boom mowing.  He reported AMSHORE Wind Farm will start today and mentioned there is 8-9 miles in both Dist#2 and Dist#3; he said Dist#2 crews will start pulling ditches in front of their work.  Shanks said crews were also pulling ditches on “W” Street.

 

Commissioner Johnson reported his crews have been hauling material, grading (weather permitting), preparing specifications to do asphalt roads, repairing equipment and installing light bars on vehicles so workers will be more visible to traffic and provide a safe work environment.  Johnson said the Hubbard Road project has been delayed and Evans & Associates needs 10 days above freezing and dry conditions to complete the asphalt and they need two (2) days above 50 degrees to stripe for completion.

 

Heavy equipment-bulldozer and operator, Dist#3:  Commissioner Skidmore noted he spoke with companies who submitted a quote for this job about the size of the machinery used and if they charged for travel time.  Skidmore said he would like to use Diemer Construction, even though they were not low bidder for this job based on the fact they were local.  DA Hermanson spoke and said to be clear because they are local and no drive time would be charged this would in fact make Diemer less expensive.  Skidmore said that is correct.

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving and awarding the quote to Diemer Construction for heavy equipment-bulldozer and operator, Dist#3.  Commissioner Johnson said his approval of this action is based to include paperwork as to why Diemer Construction was chosen.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye. 

 

Motion was made by Skidmore and seconded by Shanks approving Resolution No. 15, 16-102, to add road to county road inventory, Dist#1.  Commissioner Johnson said Souligny Road was given to the county in 1967 but it was never officially accepted into county maintenance.  He said the former commissioner maintained the road but he has not.  Johnson had this matter reviewed by the Assistant District Attorney and through this Resolution this road will be added to the County Road Inventory and will now be maintained by the county.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye.
