Commissioner Pflugh summarized correspondence received from the County Attorney in regards to a potential referendum. Alexis Pflugh moved to meet with council regarding preparing a question for a referendum on the nursing home to give the public an option for input. The motion died for a lack of a second.
Alexis Pflugh moved to adopt an agenda based on parliamentary procedures so that we can discuss old business and cover topics and not have a lull like we did but also provide for appointment times given certain people’s needs. Motion died for a lack of second.
County Clerk Harlow suggested that the board consider reducing the hours of the meeting, to alleviate a large gap in time between appointments, and only extending should there be people requesting to be on the agenda. Commissioner Pflugh suggested that the board have an evening meeting at least once per month, possibly the last meeting of the month when there is not as much on the agenda. Clerk Harlow related that if that would be the case then they would need to move the meeting to the night before the last working day of the month, so that all vendors could be paid and checks issued on the last working day of the month. No decision was made this date.

Howe reported on projects and discussed damages to a guard rail caused by a State truck. O’Hare and Howe noted that the Lawson Bridge was temporarily closed and will be until the water volume has decreased so that they can determine the extent of damage, as it appears that a corner of the structure is lowering. O’Hare updated the board on the progress of crushing the concrete pile at the landfill.
Gerry Miller inquired if the crushed concrete aggregate could be placed on the back road that is often taken to the landfill. Board members related that because the road is a dirt road that washes out on a regular basis, that they did not believe that would be the best decision.
