The board signed claim checks and audited and approved salary claims.

Road Superintendent Tom Kuester reported that some of the florescent lights in the County Shop have been replaced with LED lights. The initial cost of replacement is fairly high but the quality of the light and the low energy cost should justify it. Kuester plans to replace all the lights in the shop over the next few years. 

Kuester reported that weather has delayed restoration work on the fire-damaged Hay Springs Shop. Hopefully they will get a couple of days work in this week. The small heater in the office part of the Hay Springs shop was not able to be hooked up due to its age. Maintenance Superintendent Sones was asked to look into a new heater.

Kuester informed the board that CAT is going to be demonstrating a 12M3 Motor Grader on Tuesday at 8:30 A.M. 

Chuck Lemp informed the board that he would be shutting down operations for the winter. Lemp has been reclaiming, cleaning and crushing rock from the cowboy trail. Lemp estimated that 87,000 tons of rock remains to be processed for use by the County.
