The Board opened and reviewed bids from five dealers for six different Compact Tract Loaders.  Bids, allowing for trade-in, ranged from $51,979 from Dieke Implement to $61,701.46 from Ziegler.   Staudt/Enabnit moved to authorize the County Engineer to review bid specifications and purchase a Compact Tract Loader at the lowest price with a trade-in and that it also meets the specifications.  Motion carried 3-0.

Rolando provided foreman’s minutes and discussed with the Board the bridge project schedule and various road projects. Bids were opened yesterday for a road project on T38 south of the Mitchell County line.  Croell had the low bid at $31,800 with a late start date is the 26th.  The Triumph Avenue project was discussed.  Supv Staudt commented that Jim Hebel inquired about having 240th St by Midway graded.  Rolando said crews were spot grading last week and crews will continue to do touchups.  Supv Dunkel asked for a list of FY11 road projects with the TIF money.  Supv Staudt and Supv Dunkel each received a complaint from the same rural resident who took garbage and recyclables to the collection site and was told the garbage bins were full so they had to take the garbage home.  Rolando informed the Board that the bins on two Saturdays were full by 3 p.m.  People doing spring cleaning may be causing the bins to fill up faster.  Rolando does not believe this will continue to be an issue so he is not planning for Jendro’s to do any additional pickup of garbage.  Rolando informed the Board about a residential request to place stop signs on all three sides of the T-intersection at Third Avenue and the Farm to Market road extension in the city of Floyd due to the heavy traffic traveling in excess of the speed limit and concerns of children playing getting hit.  Rolando said the first thing he always tells people is that it is a road where children should not be playing.  Per the 28E agreement for the Farm to Market road, it is the County’s decision to place stop signs but they are generally not placed on through streets on these types of roads.  Rolando believes this may be more of an enforcement issue and will speak with Sheriff Lynch about having deputies patrol the area more heavily or possibly using the mobile speed sign in the area to make drivers aware of their speed approaching the city limits.      

A motion was made by Supervisor Staudt and seconded by Supervisor Enabnit to adjourn.  Motion carried 3-0.
