Road Superintendent Tom Kuester informed the board of some safety issues that he was made aware of. Two sets of steps coming out of the Sheriff’s Department are very worn and are in need of replacement. Sheriff Robbins was present and informed them that the stairs they use to take the prisoners out to the exercise area are in poor shape and need replaced/repaired before someone falls on them. The other set is coming from the patio off the office area. The patio itself is in good shape but the steps need work. 

Also the Quonset that the Weed and Veterans Department use to store their vehicles has broken windows and the snow drifts in. These windows need covered or replaced. The board asked Kuester to visit with Building & Grounds keeper, Dwaine Sones about these issues.

Kuester requested that the board declare another Army Surplus trailer owned by the County as surplus so that it might be sold at the upcoming Otte equipment auction on April 20. Krotz made a motion to declare the Army Trailer as surplus. Andersen seconded the motion. With a roll call vote all voted aye.
