SWANN held their meeting on July 18, 2019 in the evening. They discussed a new policy on accepting tires and clarifying the difference between business accounts and regular accounts.

At 9:57 A.M. Pat O’Brien and Lynn Webster, both with Upper Niobrara White NRD approached the Board in regards to Mirage Flats flood control. Mirage Flats is one of the 7 watershed dam structures. It was inspected and has been damaged by extreme rain and flooding. The outlet pipe was damaged and resulted in a plunge pool. The NRCS will cost share repairs on a 75/25 cost share to fix the damages or they can do force accounting which is similar to a MOU and that would take into account trucking costs by the county. Mr. Hankin stated that the county would probably need to subcontract the trucking as the Roads employees are currently busy with repairs. The cost share will be split between 3 entities, Mirage Flats Irrigation District, Dawes County and Sheridan County. Jim Hicks, Environmental Engineer has done an engineering cost estimate. An engineer would be needed to draw up the plan for repair and the repairs would need to be completed within a 220 day window after signing. Motion by Commissioner Stewart, seconded by Johnson to move forward with the contract and cost share for the retention dam for Mirage Flats. Roll call vote, Ayes: Johnson, Stewart and Rivera. Nays: None. Motion carried. Mr. O’Brien will return with a contract to sign at a later date. Mr. O’Brien and Mr. Webster left the meeting at 10:10 A.M. Roy Norgard entered the meeting at 10:10 A.M.

At 10:21 A.M. Denny Erickson, Titan Machinery entered the meeting followed by Kerri Rempp, Chadron Record at 10:22 A.M. Mr. Hankin shared a spreadsheet he had prepared with Rock crusher bids from the previous meeting. The rented crusher from Titan is now at the airport crushing and then will be moved to the Furman pit. It is crushing a softer rock and working well. After finishing at the Furman pit the County may need to start hauling from a different source. Titan is charging a $40.00 per hour wear charge in addition to the rental. Motion by Commissioner Stewart to continue the lease on a crusher from Titan Machinery with no purchase at this time, seconded by Johnson. Roll call vote, Ayes: Rivera, Johnson and Stewart. Nays: None. Motion carried. Mr. Erickson left the meeting at 10:30 A.M. Discussion ensued concerning cost of hiring contracted trucking for gravel. The cost per hour would be approximately $130.00. Mr. Hankin indicated that he may adjust the work schedule of employees to have more available to haul rock. They presently work four 10 hour days and he may adjust so they can have more employees available to haul rock on Fridays which may be less expensive than hiring contractors to do that. He stated that red rock used to repair flood damage must be certified for it to qualify for NEMA reimbursement. Airport, Ormesher and West Dakota Junction have been restored following the flooding and damage done to those roads. Mr. Hankin indicated that Mansfield Road will be open later today from the damage it sustained. Mr. Hankin said that presently each Road District has 5 employees per shop. Mr. Hankin left the meeting at 10:44 A.M.
Roy Norgard had suggestions for the Board. He stated that as an owner of the Rising Pit in Marsland they have available a mixture of black top and waste material that could be used for road repair. He stated that in exchange for the product he would expect ½ of the completed materials once the County crushed the whole pile. He also stated that he owns property on Mill Road north of Crawford. He stated that a camper he owns sustained $8,500.00 in damages from trees that overhang on that Road. He would like to see the County have someone chip the trees to remove the hazard. He stated that he intends to open a campground on his property in the future and wants to make sure the road does not pose a problem for campers to travel it.
At 10:48 A.M. there being no further business before the Board, the Chairman adjourned the meeting. The next meeting of the Dawes County Commissioners will be August 13, 2019 beginning at 9:00 A.M. with a Board of Equalization Meeting, followed by the Commissioner Meeting at approximately 9:20 A.M. Both meetings will be held in the former County Courtroom located at the Courthouse. A current agenda is available at the Clerk’s Office during normal business hours but will close at 12:00 P.M., August 8, 2019. Disclaimer: A complete text of all resolutions passed by the Board is available upon request in the County Clerk’s office during normal business hours.
