Commissioner Shanks noted his crews put in low water crossing on Bridge#250, blacktopped over pipe on River Rd., and will be blading the rest of the week.

 

Commissioner Skidmore told his crews worked most of the week building the loft in the new shop.  Crews moved equipment from Dewey to new yard, removed trees from Hubbard Rd. project, removed debris from low water crossings, painted pipes for new shop building, repaired signs, picked up trash from road sides and graded roads and hauled rock.

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving a Change Order (piling hole clean-out) for Bridge#250-BIA Project, Dist#2.  Shanks explained the rain situation as to why a piling hole clean out was necessary and why a “change order” was in place.  He also told the BIA would be paying for the $1,500 clean-out and said mobilization fees would be around $5,000. Clerk Reese asked Shanks if he had paperwork accordingly.  DA Hermanson told the BOCC they could move forward with approval but told Shanks he needed in writing the changes that were to be made.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye.

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving to go out for bid on 2” asphalt overlay on Rainbow Road with Rainbow Road Property Owners Association providing $38,000 toward project, Dist#1.  Johnson said this was an asphalt road that has many bad spots and stated it is cratering and needed repaired.  He noted the property owners are contributing $38,000; Johnson said after the bid comes in, and if the amount is an acceptable amount, the county will pay the remaining amount.  Shanks asked if this road was on Dist#1 county maintenance and Johnson stated it was and indicated he had several similar situations.   Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye. 

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving Road Maintenance/Repair Agreement, Thunder Ranch Wind Farm, LLC.  Chairman Skidmore said he has been working long and hard on this and finally able to reach an agreement.  DA Hermanson noted the county reserves the right to review all road crossings and line placements by the addendum part of the contract.   Johnson noted he only had two miles of road and would agree with Skidmore with what he worked out with the wind farms. Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye. 

 

Motion was made by Johnson and seconded by Shanks approving Road Maintenance/Repair Agreement, Rock Falls Wind Farm, LLC.   Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye. 

 

DA Hermanson stepped out of the meeting.

 

Chairman Skidmore asked if he could go back and discuss more matters on Thunder Ranch Wind Farm and Rock Falls Wind Farm.  Clerk Reese said in her opinion the items were closed, but said to ask advice of DA when he returns.

 

DA Hermanson returned to the meeting.

 

Skidmore told DA Hermanson he was concerned and wanted to make sure the agreements that were signed were the correct and original finals that were sent.  Hermanson told the ones approved were the ones that were emailed to him Saturday morning at 8:02 and 8:04 a.m. and DA Hermanson said he sent them to Assistant District Attorney Billie Chrz for review.  Skidmore said he wanted to be sure the agreements were the ones with the updated changes.  Hermanson then explained the addendum to each. 

 

Motion was made by Shanks and seconded by Johnson approving to rescind previous motion for purchasing grid roller from the online public auction site (motion originally made in BOCC meeting March 27, 2017).  Skidmore stated this is not a commonly used item and it did not sell.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye. 

 

Discussion to purchase the grid roller directly from vendor because the total of the purchase price and delivery costs is less than $15,000.00:  Quotes were read as follows:  Grid Roller-Tom Cat Sales (California)-$14,572; National Equipment Sales, LLC (Canada)-$13,500; Dan’s Dirt Work (Kansas)-$13,000.  Hauling– Madera, California to Blackwell, OK:  TJ Potter Trucking-$2,980; 3G Pipe-$13,502; Diemer Construction-$6,616.  Hauling- Alberta, Canada to Blackwell, Ok:  TJ Potter Trucking-$2,675; 3G Pipe-$5,925; Diemer Construction-$7,024.  Hauling-Bogue, KS to Blackwell, OK:  TJ Potter Trucking-$875; 3G Pipe-$600; Diemer Construction-$1,148.

 

Questions arose from BOCC.  Why was this being quoted and opened in an open meeting?  Clerk Reese mentioned there was a Resolution in place to quote items $500 up to $15,000 and anything over $15,000 was done by a sealed bid.  She said direction had been given in writing to handle in this manner by Cindy Bryd, State Auditor and Inspector.

 

Motion was made by Skidmore and seconded by Shanks accepting the lowest quote from Dan’s Dirt Work from Bogue, KS in the amount of $13,000 for the grid roller and 3G Pipe in the amount of $600 for hauling from Bogue, KS to Blackwell.  Motion carried:  Johnson, aye; Shanks, aye; Skidmore, aye.
