MARCH 3, 1998
The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Russek, Rose, Mattson and Sawatzke present. The meeting was called to order by Rose and followed by the Pledge of Allegiance.
Additions to the Agenda were made as follows: Confidential Secretary position be referred to the Personnel Committee (Nelson); Russek to attend the Feed Lot Committee meeting today in Maple Lake ((Russek). Russek moved to approve the additions to the Agenda, seconded by Mattson, carried unanimously.
County Attorney Nelson passed out copies of the Letter of lntent to enter into a contract with Kue Contractors, Inc. on March 10, 1998 and the conditions under which it would be executed. He stated condition #3, "Contractor shall, notwithstanding any other provisions, be totally responsible for proper disposal of all demolition debris." was included to clarify this responsibility to the contractors. Rose opened discussion of condition #2. "Subject specifically to completion times as provided in bid documents." noting that Kue Contractors bid was 30 days less than any of the other bids, and expressed concern of not wanting to lose flexibility. Norman reported that the contract he has received from Buetow clearly states 120 days and follows the bid submitted by Kue. There was further discussion that while Kue feels comfortable with the 120 days, MIS has expressed concern regarding ample time for proper wiring. Sawatzke stated he would not be opposed to a 120-150 day time period in order to ensure the job is properly done. Rose also expressed concern over the issue of supervision and additional costs if the project were not completed within the 120 days. There was consensus among the County Board that their desire is for the project to be properly done and that the 120 day time frame does not provide much flexibility for unforseen delays. Nelson stated the Board could sign the Letter of Intent today with #2 altered by Board action at the March 10 Board Meeting. A motion was made by Russek and seconded by Mattson to approve the Letter of lntent as amended. Motion carried unanimously.
A motion was made by Mattson and seconded by Russek to refer the item of Confidential Secretary to the next Personnel Committee Meeting. Motion carried unanimously. Nelson asked when the Personnel Committee would be meeting. Norman reported that the Personnel Committee would be meeting Wednesday, March 11, I998, however, he as well as others would be attending the AMC Legislative Conference that day and the item would not be addressed until the March 25, 1998 meeting.
A motion was made by Mattson and seconded by Sawatzke for Russek to attend the Feed Lot Committee Forum being held by the University of Minnesota Extension today at Maple Lake on per diem. Motion carried unanimously with Russek abstaining.
The meeting adjourned at 9:14 A.M.
