Roll call vote, Ayes: Stewart, Johnson and Rivera. Nays: None. Motion carried. There being no correspondence, Public Comment ensued with Dana Streeks objecting to closure of the railroad crossing located between the Crawford Livestock Auction and grain elevator located on Mill Road. If this crossing is closed it will limit egress in bad weather. Karlin Moody expressed concern with emergency personnel getting to her place and semi trucks can’t get in to haul cattle. Jamie Rivera Haas expressed concern this crossing is the only avenue for trucks coming into the bulk plant. Connie Bosak reported train noise has been an on-going issue in the Crawford area. She reported NDOT and the Railroad are in support of closing the crossing due to safety concerns. An offer of $342,600.00 has been made to the City of Crawford to assist with installing a silent warning system and pay for a First Street crossing. Ms. Bosak also indicated in speaking to the Crawford Fire Chief, they are in support of the City of Crawford in pursing this issue. Roy Norgard and Casey Schuhmacher indicated the Fire Department is neutral on the issue. The Fire Department uses Bethel Road, not Mill Road. Karlin Moody reported the Bethel Road route is a private crossing. Twila Satchell suggested Bethel Road be fixed. Board Reports ensued with Vic Rivera-No report; Webb Johnson-Aging Board is working on their budget and Federal Law requires employees to log all work and calls. PADD-money is available for loans and they will possibly hire another person. OHD-working on budget. No RC&D report until January. Stewart-NCAP- The Salvation Army is still in need of bell ringers. The Head Start Program is working on grants. SWANN-The Board discussed insurance coverage which needs to be decided by January of 2018. Region 23-Jack Rhembrandt will join the Board as Deputy Director in January of 2018.
At 9:31 A.M. David Nixon, Mayor of Crawford, met with the Board regarding a silent railroad crossing in Crawford. He indicated after a feasibility study was conducted, the State and Railroad feel there is a safety issue with the railroad crossing located on Mill Road. The State has offered funding to install a silent crossing, however; the funding is time sensitive according to Nixon. Mr. Nixon also indicated for the record the city doesn’t own anything around the Mill Road crossing. Commissioner Rivera asked counsel if the City of Crawford can close a county road. Adam Edmund, Deputy County Attorney, indicated only the county can close a county road. Commissioner Rivera went on to ask if the railroad is so concerned about safety, where are the crossing arms? Mr. Nixon indicated this is a railroad question. A letter from Ken and Laure Sinn was received addressing their concerns with the closure of the railroad crossing on Mill Road. Commissioner Stewart expressed concern with the time frame involved to address this issue. The County can’t possibly close a road by January of 2018 due to State requirements in closing a county road. Commissioner Rivera added a silent crossing is great but it must accommodate all concerned. Adam Edmund asked Connie Bosak if anyone has talked to the railroad regarding the Bethel crossing and she indicated this is happening today. Karlin Moody indicated the Bethel Bridge has an eight (8) ton weight limit and is not the Burlington Northern Railroad. Roy Norgard indicated for the record he likes silent crossings but not at the expense of being bribed. He suggested two (2) silent crossings might be the solution to this issue. Connie Bosak suggested Bethel Road be fixed. A road study resolution will be added to the December 12, 2017 Agenda.
At 9:55 A.M. Larry Hankin met with the Board. Also present was Steve Arner, Susan Leeling, Don Clausen, Pam Mandelko, Casey Schuhmacher and Robert Grant. Mr. Hankin presented Board Members with a bid tabulation sheet on the Knueppel Bridge project. He reported he has been in contact with M.C. Schaff and Associates who have recommended Fuller Construction for the project. Mr. Hankin agrees with the suggestion of M.C. Schaff & Associates. Commissioner Rivera, seconded by Johnson, moved to award the Knueppel Bridge contract to Fuller Construction in the amount of $91,052.50. Roll call vote, Ayes: Rivera, Stewart and Johnson. Nays: None. Motion carried. At 10:00 A.M. the Chairman declared the Public Hearing regarding closure of Arner, a portion of Hawthorne and Lawrence Roads open. Public Comment ensued with Steve Arner indicating for the record that Ralph Knode couldn’t be present, however; Arner Road needs elevated and rock or close it due to people tearing up the road and nearby fields. He went on to say they didn’t mean to cause problems by asking for the road to be closed and he will not continue to pull anyone out anymore. Casey Schuhmacher asked about signage on Arner Road. Discussion ensued. Mr. Schuhmacher feels Arner Road needs to remain open and suggested the County have the road surveyed. Robert Grant asked if the road needs to be 24’ and Mr. Hankin indicated the road would be 26’. Don Clausen expressed concern if Arner Road is closed, the Postal Service must use an alternate route and the County should fix the problems with Arner Road. Pam Mandelko wants the road fixed, not closed. Pam Mandelko also shared letters from Carol & Terry Connell, Tanner Connell, Charlie and Calvin Ebermeier, Don Mandelko, Brooke & Kevin Keim, Robert Galey and Cher Reeves who all requested the Board keep Arner Road open. Susan Leeling wants the road fixed, not closed, as backtracking costs her money and time when delivering the mail. Steve Arner indicated for the record he asked Commissioner Stewart to take a drive with him at Mr. Arner’s expense to look at the condition of the road. There being no further comment on Arner Road and no one addressing Hawthorne or Lawrence roads during the hearing, the Chairman declared the Public Hearing closed at 10:25 A.M. Road Updates included the following to wit: District 1-maintenance and blading; District 2-dozing at Brun’s pit and looking at contracting out crushing of the rock; District 3-Rock has been hauled and spread on ½ mile of Galey Road. The Crusher is setting up at the Eleson pit. Hawthorne Road millings were discussed and Mr. Hankin informed the Board the Crusher engine is getting bad and District 3 needs to have the 140H CAT rebuilt. He shared costs associated with a rebuild. The Board recessed at 11:26 A.M. and reconvened to regular session at 11:39 A.M. The next order of business was setting salaries of Elected and Appointed Officials for the next four (4) years. Present was Lindy Coleman, Assessor; Karl Dailey, Sheriff; Celeste Cattin, Clerk of District Court; Chelsie Sparks, Treasurer and Larry Hankin, Highway Superintendent. An official decision regarding salaries will be made at the December 26, 2017 Commissioner meeting after additional information has been provided to the Board. The County Clerk presented the Board with the MAXIMUS contract renewal for review and approval. Commissioner Rivera, seconded by Johnson, moved to approve the three (3) year contract with MAXIMUS and directed the Chairman to sign the contract. Roll call vote, Ayes: Stewart, Johnson and Rivera. Nays: None. Motion carried. The Custodial Job description was updated to include services at 342 Main Street. Commissioner Rivera, seconded by Johnson, moved to add 342 Main Street to the Custodial Job Description. Roll call vote, Ayes; Johnson, Rivera and Stewart. Nays: None. Motion carried. The Tourism Board appointment will be addressed at the December 26, 2017 Commissioner Meeting to allow time to advertize the open position.
