County employees recognized for their service

The annual county employee recognition awards were presented at the board's February 8 meeting. Thirty-nine employees were recognized with a certificate noting their service to the county for five (14), ten (10), fifteen (6), twenty (3), twenty-five (2), thirty (2), and thirty-five (2) years.

Jeffrey Dyreson received the annual Safety Award.

Highway

Brent Kohn, maintenance superintendent, recommended the low quote of $39,500 from Dan Himmer Sales, Inc., Stewartville, to purchase a 1999 Mack truck with a 20,000 pound front axle to replace the current Volvo water truck, which will be traded or sold. The county expects to put only about 5,000 miles per year on the truck.

The board accepted the resignation of Larry Niemeyer, highway maintenance specialist III, with thanks effective August 18, 2011. Board members were concerned that the number of employees in the department be kept at the same level. It was made clear that they were not in favor of adding an additional employee.

They approved in-house advertisement for Niemeyer's replacement in Spring Valley and in-house advertisement for a maintenance specialist in Canton. A current floater position would not be refilled in order to keep the number of employees constant.

Kohn maintained that at least 50 percent of the time there is a shortage of one man for snow removal. Commissioner Chuck Amunrud asked if it has ever been considered to hire a part -ime person during the winter for snow removal. The Sheriff's department hires part-time people to fill in when needed, which also reduces overtime.

There was a question if this would be acceptable with the union. Commissioner Duane Bakke said he has spoken with union members about using a qualified person to fill in when needed. The individuals he spoke with didn't seem to have a problem with someone filling in if it didn't affect their hours.

Other Business In Brief
