County Engineer John Grindeland briefed the county board at their Tuesday meeting about an agreement between the state and county, where local units of government to perform work on behalf of MnDot.

On occasions when the state would find it more efficient for the county to do some work for it, the state would farm out the work and then be billed by the county. MnDot would have the ability to write work orders against a master contract thereby providing the greatest flexibility. The work orders would be negotiated by the county engineer and MnDot would pay the county for the work.

The agreement was approved as was the authorization for County Engineer John Grindeland and County Board Chairperson Chuck Amunrud to execute the contract.
