Fri, Jan 9th, 2004
Posted in Features

Fillmore County Coordinator Karen Brown started off the boards annual meeting by entertaining motions for the 2004 Chairman. Commissioner Randy Dahl, Second District was elected, with Commissioner Chuck Amunrud, Third District voted in as Vice Chair.

Im looking forward to working on the countys Comprehensive Plan, stated Dahl as he took his place at the boardrooms table. With the past years events overseas, Dahl said he was very appreciative of the countys abilities to get their work done in a democratic fashion.

Retiring Chairman Marc Prestby was acknowledged for his past years efforts and for his abilities to run meetings in a timely manner. It has been an especially trying year for Prestby as he has had to sign document after document regarding the countys courthouse construction project, one he believed taxpayers should not have been burdened with.

Zoning

Zoning Administrator Norman Craig informed board members that the county issued 136 permits for new sewer systems in 2003. Less than half of these sites were inspected personally, relying on the credentials of licensed installers. Craig stated hed only seen about 25% of the newly permitted sites and requested approval for a contract with the Soil and Water Conservation District to help with inspections. The agreement would allow Feedlot Officer Michael Frauenkron and Don Krohn, Administrator, to also complete inspections. All three men are required to complete continual education credits regarding installation regulations.

Commissioner Chuck Amun-rud expressed serious concern over sites being closed off after the traditional 24 hour period has passed allowing the new installation to be covered up -- even though the county hadnt found time to complete an inspection. By adding two other individuals to the task, Craig hopes to eliminate this problem.

The board elected not to move on the agreement until more information could be gathered regarding the duties listed for the two additional men.
