Drainage Still Top Issue For Commissioners

Board OK’s Computer Backup

The Marshall County Commission continued to deal with drainage issues at its regular meeting on Tuesday.

The board held an emergency meeting last week to deal with concerns of flooding roads in the county.

A drainage permit was approved for Westwood Colony and two temporary drainage permits were approved for Joe Zastrow to help ease flooding. The Zastrow permits can become permanent if it is determined that no wetlands are being drained.

In other action a building permit was approved for DuWayne Bosse. The commission had a request from an individual to clean the ditch on the north side of Marshall County 2, but the board said the right-of-way is actually in North Dakota and no permission from Marshall County was needed.

The board chairman was given approval to sign a contract with Zuercher to provide a new computer system for dispatchers. A 50-cent raise was also approved for dispatcher Chris Cease.

Purchase of a 1,000-gallon propane tank was approved for the Eden shop. A bid of $252.52 was accepted from Tracy Marquette to purchase the patrol car declared surplus. The resignation from Deputy Noah Nyok was accepted.

Commissioners approved paying $269 per month for an off-site backup system for computers in five county offices. The board also heard a Glacial Lakes Area Development (GLAD) update from Executive Director Lindsey Kimber.

Next meeting of the board is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 19.
