Board resolves to terminate engineer

It was Commissioner Gary Peterson’s last meeting on the County Board, and probably the most significant event of the meeting was the Board’s unanimous approval of a resolution to terminate the one-year probationary appointment of County Engineer Steve Voigt.

The resolution was a product of a discussion that County Attorney Matt Opat held with the Board on what options were legally available to the County with respect to Voigt’s contract. At the County Board meeting on February 20, the commissioners voted to advertise for new candidates for the engineer position.

At the request of the Board, Attorney Opat researched the state statutes governing the County Engineer position and found that the commissioners could either terminate Voigt’s contract at the end of his one-year appointment on May 14, or reappoint him for another four years.

Opat recommended that the Board make a resolution to terminate the appointment if that is what they wanted. "We need to do something with Steve’s current contract," he explained.

At this point, Commissioner Randy Dahl joined the discussion, asking Opat, "Is it possible to extend a term?"

"Only if you appoint him for four years," responded Opat.

Commissioner Duane Bakke then inquired of Opat, "Can he re-apply for the position, then be hired again for one year?"

"I haven’t found in the statute where we could do that," replied Opat. "I don’t think we can start all over again; he would not be a new County Engineer."

To this, Commissioner Bakke responded, "Are we going to direct someone to make up a resolution?"

As the dialogue faded, Chair Helen Bicknese inquired of the commissioners, "Do you want to consider this and come back to this later in the morning?"

After a noticeable silence, Attorney Opat acknowledged that he would go write the resolution for the Board.

At the end of the meeting, Coordinator Karen Brown presented a resolution to the Board that called for the termination of the appointment on May 14, 2001. On a motion by Commissioners Bakke and Marc Prestby that was devoid of any discussion, the resolution was unanimously approved.
