Five on board; five “seconds”

For the past three months, the County Board has basically been a four-member board. Former Commissioner Gary Peterson announced his resignation in late January, and he attended few meetings between then and his exit in mid March.

But the people of Commissioner District Three had their say on April 17, and elected Mr. Harry Root to represent them in the windowless chambers of the Fillmore County Commissioners’ Board Room. That service began last Tuesday when Judge Robert Benson administered the oath of office to Mr. Root.

Commissioner Root may have thought that Coordinator Karen Brown purposely kept the agenda light for his first day on the job, but, as a witness to the last few meetings, he already knew that most of the recent meetings of the Board have been rather light.

After repeating the oath of office and receiving a supportive hug from his wife, Commissioner Root took his place at the table between veteran Commissioner Duane Bakke on his right and greenhorn Commissioner Randy Dahl on his left.

"I’m going to do my best to fulfill my duties as Third District Commissioner," Root announced. "I’m going to do my best to represent the people of my district."

With the formalities completed, the new Board of five began the work of managing county government.
On Committees, Commissions, etc.

One of the first items on the administrative agenda was a discussion on the commissioner assignments to committees, boards and commissions.

While the salary of a commissioner may be set on the schedule of a mere four meetings of the Board each month, what Commissioner Root soon learned is that he has also been assigned to 17 different committees, boards, commissions and/or task forces. Some of his areas of "committee expertise" will include corrections, resource conservation, and county personnel.

Commissioner Root may find that his committee assignments are really not excessive: six-year commissioner veteran and Board Chair Helen Bicknese serves on 24 different committees, commissions, etc., in the fulfillment of her duties representing the constituents of the Second District.

Negotiating with Law Enforcement


Undoubtedly, the most significant policy issue on last Tuesday’s agenda was the final negotiations with the union representing the staff of the Sheriff’s office. The Sheriff, serving as an elected official, is not represented by .....
