Eloise Kampbell met with the board to give them the date of the upcoming Employee Training. The training will be February 4, 2014 with two, three hour sessions, one starting at 8:30 A.M. running to 11:30 A.M. and then starting again at 1:30 P.M. and running to 4:30 P.M.

Road Superintendent, Tom Kuester presented the board a resolution for approval. Andersen made a motion to adopt resolution #2014-3 setting the date of the 1 & 6 year road hearing for February 10, 2014 at 10 A.M. at the County Road Department in the Courthouse Annex in Rushville. Krotz seconded the motion. With a roll call vote all voted aye. 

Kuester informed the board that he has received a request to post a “No Outlet” sign on 396th Trail North of Antioch. Because the County has so many of these roads, it was determined that it would not be County policy to post them all but rather to consider requests as they are submitted.

Kuester reported that crack sealing on the county paved roads has been delayed due to severe cold and high winds. Approximately half the project is now complete and the cost is running much higher than estimated. 

County Weed Superintendent Kristi Paul presented her annual report for review and approval. There has been a slight increase in the number of acres infested with leafy spurge in the areas damaged by the Wellnitz fire. Other noxious weeds are being effectively controlled through the efforts of the weed department and cooperative landowners. 

Adjourn: 10:45 A.M.
