A bit of this and that

In a meeting shortened so that the county board could take some time out to honor county employees for their years of service, Fillmore County Board Chair Helen Bicknese moved through an abbreviated agenda in quick fashion last Tuesday. Here are the highlites of the meeting.

Dust control It might be hard for rural residents living on unpaved county roads to visualize dusty roads in these last days of winter, nonetheless the county board was a bit surprised that no one had signed up to take part in the county sponsored dust control program. So surprised in fact that the board extended the sign up period an additional week to April 6. For more information, the public is invited to call the Fillmore County Highway Department.

Engineer Vacancy Also receiving little attention is the soon to be vacated Fillmore County Highway Engineer position.

Commissioner Marc Prestby asked whether it would be too late to have someone in before the present engineer leaves. Brown replied that the Deputy Engineer is in place and that the county can ask County Engineers in other counties to sign off on necessary documents. Stay tuned.

Bridge Replacements The board tabled a resolution to update the countys bridge replacement list that will be sent to the state until next week so that the board will have a chance to review the list in more detail.

Voigt said that it wouldnt hurt to have every bridge in the county on the list "so that we dont cut ourselves out of funding".

Bakke said that he understood why were doing this, but wanted another week to make sure that we had them (bridges) all in.
