DAWES COUNTY BOARD OF
COMMISSIONERS
The Public convened meeting of the
Dawes County Commissioners in regular
session was commenced at the hour of
9:08 A.M. on the 9th day of April, 2019
pursuant to public notice as required by
law. The meeting was called to order by
Commissioner Rivera. Roll was called and
the following Commissioners were present: Commissioners Rivera, Johnson and
Stewart. Also present was Deb Lesmeister,
Deputy Dawes County Clerk; Adam
Edmund, Deputy County Attorney and
Jerry Schumacher and Marty Tobiasson.
Per LB 898 the Chairman announced the
location of posted information concerning
the Open Meetings Act. Copies of the Act
are available upon request by anyone attending the meeting. Motion by Commissioner
Stewart, seconded by Johnson, approving the agenda with the following amendment of 6 Tourism Grants to be added
under items of consideration. Roll call
vote, Ayes: Johnson, Stewart and Rivera.
Nays: None. Motion carried. Motion
by Commissioner Stewart, seconded by
Johnson to approve the minutes of the
March 26, 2019 meeting. Roll call vote,
Ayes: Stewart, Rivera and Johnson. Nays:
None. Motion carried. Motion to approve
the claims by Commissioner Stewart, seconded by Johnson. Roll call vote, Ayes:
Rivera, Johnson and Stewart. Nays: None.
Motion carried. There was no correspondence to review.
Public comment began at 9:17 A.M.
Jerry Schumacher repeated his request for a
packet of information to be available for the
public. This packet would have the agenda,
minutes for the previous meeting, a Board
preapproval report and a copy of items to
be discussed in it so that the public can
also review as the Commissoners conduct
their meeting. He did publicly thank the
Clerk’s office for posting the agenda and
the minutes of the Commissioner meetings on the County website promptly after
the meetings. At 9:20 A.M. Roy Norgard
approached the Board to discuss Mill Road.
He has property on this road and said it was
lacking maintenance. He stated that he was
not complaining but requesting input
as the road is having drainage issues.
He was requesting permission to cut
groves to drain standing water off of it.
Commissioner Stewart said that if he was
doing it with his own equipment and on his
way back and forth to the property it was
okay to cover ruts or do small repairs to
address the problem. However,
if the repair were to take more than 1
hour the County needs to be contacted.
The proper way to do that would be to contact the Crew Chief for your Road District
and the Highway Superintendent. Adam
Edmund stated that this way notice would
be given and signage would be in place
to alert the Public that there is machinery
on the road to prevent accidents and for
public safety. Mr. Norgard stated that he
would contact Bill Gartner, Crew Chief for
Road District #3. Kerri Rempp entered the
meeting at 9:27 A.M. Mr. Norgard left the
meeting at 9:28 A.M.
Jerry Schumacher spoke on behalf of
Don Mandelko who was not present at
the meeting. Mr. Mandelko wanted the
Commissioners to know that the water

has been removed from his road. Mr.
Mandelko would like to fix the road in the
future and would like the Commissioners
input on how it should be done. Mr.
Schumacher stated he personally would
like current information on the road conditions to be available perhaps on the County
Roads website so citizens could look there
for updated information and by doing that
it would foster a better relationship. Marty
Tobiasson asked who he should talk to
in his district about the condition of his
road. Commissioner Stewart said for him
to contact Gary Bacon who is the Crew
Chief of District #1. The phone number
to call is 308-432-2510 which is District
#1 Road shop and leave a message for
Mr. Bacon. Bev Dyer entered the meeting at 9:34 A.M. She asked if any Road
Department employee is checking culverts
for undermining from water damage. She
stated that Squaw Mound Road has this
issue. The question was asked if Squaw
Mound was going to be fixed and if it will
meet FEMA or NEMA threshold for assistance for those repairs. Stetson Road which
has a pipe arch and there are concerns with
the safety of going over it with a tractor and
bale processor if there is damage that is not
visible from the top of the roadway. Dyer
Road has 4 culverts in different parts of the
road which she travels, 2 of the culverts
have been cut by Road personnel when they
have bladed in the past, and the ends of
the culverts are not being cleaned routinely
which results in the water not being able to
flow through them properly. She did want
to acknowledge Mike Reynoldson who has
bladed Dyer Road since the storm. She
said “Kudos for a great job”. It was very
smooth and there were no large humps
or gouges where you turn off to a private
driveway. Ms. Dyer left the meeting and
public comment was closed.
At 9:42 A.M. the Commissioners
reviewed an application for use of the
Courthouse grounds.
Motion by
Commissioner Stewart, seconded by
Johnson to approve the application from
the Fur Trade Days Committee for use of
the Courthouse grounds July 10-July 14,
2019. This application did not have the certificate of insurance attached to it. Roll call
vote, Ayes: Johnson, Stewart and Rivera.
Nays: None. Motion carried.
Adam Edmund presented the budget
preparation letter. Motion by Commissioner
Johnson, seconded by Stewart to accept
the Letter of Engagement for Budget
Preparation with Caleb Johnson for the
2019-2020 budget year. Roll call vote, Ayes:
Stewart, Rivera and Johnson. Nays: None.
Motion carried.
The Tourism grants were reviewed.
Motion by Commissioner Stewart, seconded by Johnson to approve the 6 Tourism
grants that were presented. Roll call vote,
Ayes: Stewart, Rivera and Johnson. Nays:
None. Motion carried. Next agenda item
was the Official hire of the Interim Tourism
Director. There was no information available at this time to share.
At 9:45 A.M. 5 employees were recognized for their years of service. Vance
Haug-22 years, Stacey McCartney-20 years,
Karl Dailey-32 years, Bobbi Wellnitz-29
years and Jeff Smith-22 years. Kerri Rempp
of the Chadron Record was there to take
their picture.
The Commissioners took a break at 9:52
A.M. and reconvened at 10:02 A.M.
At 10:03 Commissioner Stewart read
aloud Resolution 2019-08 regarding
weight restriction of 7 ton per axle on
Toadstool Road. Motion by Commissioner
Stewart, seconded by Johnson to approve
Resolution 2019-08. Roll call vote, Ayes:
Rivera, Johnson and Stewart. Nays: None.
Motion carried. A contract for Dunlap
Road prepared by Mainelli Wagner and
Associates was signed by the Board. The
approval of this contract was done at a prior
Commissioner meeting and only signatures
were required on the contracts today. Larry
Hankin, Interim Highway Superintendent
met with the Board. Mr. Hankin said the
rented crusher is set up at Crawford. The
State of Nebraska has concrete that can be
crushed at Highway20/Highway 71. It will
be crushed to a diameter of 2 ½ inches.
There is also concrete available at the
Chadron Airport. The County will crush
it to 1 ½ inch diameter and the County
will get ½ and the City of Chadron will get
the other ½. Local truckers will be hired
to haul rock to various roads, 1 of which
is River Road. The irrigation pump that is
being used on the north side of Table Road
is pumping from the bar ditch only. A
possible future solution was flood prevention on this particular road was to build it
up higher. 34 roads are still closed at this
time. Some of these roads are passable
but for safety reasons they are unsure of
the condition of the whole road bed. Jerry
Schumacher asked why not put weight
restrictions on them. Note: Resolutions
must be used to do this and it could not be
done until the Commissioners had another
meeting which is a time factor in this situation. Bridge work on the Dakota Junction
Bridge will be continuing. NIRMA will
be contacted about a question concerning
coverage if individuals want to work for
hire for the County driving County equipment during emergency situations such
as the flood. Contractors such as those
hauling rock are required to have their own
insurance.
At 10:25 A.M. Tony Armer, Mainelle
Wagner and Associates met with the Board.
He told the Board that their firm has several
different options to help with the Highway
Superintendent position.
He said they can hire his firm to mix
and match the following items: hire a
consulting engineering firm, do the 1 and 6
year road plan, assist with highway allocation funds, be an active part of the budget
process, or have someone be in the same
capacity as Mr. Hankin. He stated Mark
Mainella has a Class A license and he has a
