Dusten Rolando, County Engineer, updated the Board on bidding for a sign truck.  Foreman’s minutes and Rolando’s timesheets were provided.  B57 was opened last week.  Contract rock/rock resurfacing started yesterday.  Because it is so dry, road blading has been at a minimum.  Crews are mowing edges of gravel roads.  Rolando will start reviewing the 75+ applications for the open Operator II position and may bump up a current road operator to a higher classification.  Rolando has meetings in Ames this week. 

Don Etler, I&S Group Drainage Engineer, and John Rosengren, ISU Intern, presented an Engineer’s Report:  Main Tile Repair Drainage District #12 Floyd County, Iowa dated 7-9-2012 Project No. 116481.  The district has roughly 450 acres of watershed.  The tile in the NENW of Sec 27 is in very poor condition, possibly from heavy growth of trees and brush, and is in great need of repair although the circumstances of the ground make it impractical to repair in its current location.  Etler believes the main tile with an original 3/8” drainage coefficient is sufficient but the replacement of a new tile should run west of the existing tree line and main tile so as to better pick up more tributary drains.  Due to the property being in the federal CRP program, Hoeft Enterprise, LLC, would need to obtain a waiver to disturb the ground and working periods on CRP property are limited between August 1 and May 15.  Etler also recommends that the district be reclassified and proposed some possible annexations into the district.  After the Board of Supervisors/Trustees of the drainage district have accepted the report, it needs to be on file for 40 days before a public hearing; newspaper publications and property owner direct mail notices must be provided within 4-20 days prior to the public hearing.  The Board would like Etler to amend the original report to correct a wrong assumption regarding a ditch on the southernmost 550 feet of the NENW of section 27 whereby including the repair of the eroded cut cause by the failed tile as well as include a remedy for a lateral tile causing a hole west of the main tile that Doug Hoeft reported to be large enough to fit a pickup.  The Board will take action at a special meeting on Monday to accept an amended report, set a hearing date and hire a drainage attorney to prepare required legal documents.

Etler commented that he has not started classification on DD #9.  Annexations in DD #12 may be properties pulled from DD #9.  He suggests we hold off on assessing any of his bills or other claims until work is completed.

Etler also commented that Floyd County DD #6/Cerro Gordo County #56 work continues.  It could be a couple of years before anything happens with this district due to the nature of the improvement and having to deal with a railroad with formal notice of procedure.

Kuhn/Dunkel motioned to adjourn the meeting.  Motion carried 3-0.
