The estimated cost of the project is $285,000, currently the structure is 35 x 16 and the proposed structure will be 45 x 24.

The Board and Public Works Administrator Mike Craig discussed the Haug low water crossing. This is a bridge the county could build and material cost would be approximately $60,000-$70,000. This project will be revisited at a later time.

County Counselor Jason Brinegar met with the Board. He discussed the next steps in the sale or disposition of the tax sale properties that the County now owns.

$1,109.41-Treasurer’s Fund- P.O. #6110

County Treasurer Jami Ellenbecker and Agency on Aging Director Ashley Lyhane met with the Board. Title IIIC did receive part of the dollars they were expecting for reimbursement, therefore, a transfer of funds did not need to be made at this time. It has been advised that in the future, any bills that cannot be paid out of Title IIIC due to lack of funds, can and should be paid out of the General Fund.

The Board will need to draw up a Resolution and sign it to authorize the previous $45,000 transfer from the General Fund to Title IIIC.
