Rogers and Sons Concrete bid $82,550 (his bid included a cashiers check for 5% of the bid) Thomas Construction bid $99,550 (his bid included a 5% bid bond). Allen moved to approve the low bid from Rogers & Sons Concrete for $82,550 for the bid replacement near 145th & Tomahawk, Harold seconded and all approved. Frank said he would notify the winning bidder.

Harold took a phone call from Jeremy Scharenberg regarding Deer Road. He said the coal trucks are stirring up a lot of dust and that the truckers are using their Jake brakes. Barbara said she would ask Jim to call the coal company.

Rhonda Dunn presented the Commissioners a proposal for the upcoming tax sale from Security 1st Title. They wanted to bid $60 or $75 per tract depending on the information that is produced. Rhonda said she would talk to Dan Meara regarding the upcoming tax sale and the company used.

Rhonda Dunn talked to the Commissioners about adding commercial property to the tax sale. She said Commercial property does not have to be delinquent as long as residential before it is sold at a tax auction. She said (using the computer system) it is hard to define what is commercial property vs. residential property. Allen suggested asking Judy Wallis to run a list of commercial property so that she can compare the list to delinquent property owners.

Harold made a motion to renew the insurance coverage with KCAMP for three years (2015, 2016 & 2017), with a maximum annual rate cap of 2%. This entitles Bourbon County to a credit of $11,647 which will be subtracted from the 2015 bill, Barbara seconded and all approved. Allen signed the agreement with KCAMP.

Allen moved to go into a 10 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Harold seconded (the session included the three Commissioners and Valorie Leblanc). No action was taken.

The Bourbon County Commission met in open session with all three Commissioners and the County Clerk present.

Tammy Helm with the Fort Scott Tribune was also present.

There was discussion over the $10,000 that was budgeted in 2014 for Capital Improvements at Elm Creek. The buildings there need to be tuck pointed.

Jim Harris presented chemical quotes for 448 ounces of Escort, they were as follows… Van Diest bid $1,572.77, CPS bid $1,675.52 and Red River bid $1,603.84. Allen moved to approve Van Diest for $1,572.77, Barbara seconded and all approved.

Jim reported that they completed chip and sealing in Redfield last Friday and will be chip and sealing in Bronson this week. He said this week they will be milling on 215th going west from 69 Hwy as well as making cold mix.

Allen moved to go into a 20 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Barbara seconded and all approved (the session included the 3 Commissioners and Jim). No action was taken.

Jim notified the Commissioners that the Elm Creek Caretaker had resigned. The Commissioners will advertise the job opening.

Barbara moved to approve asking the Scott Township board to consider allowing Fort Scott Conoco to sell cereal malt beverages off premises, Harold seconded and all were in favor.

Deb Schoenberger came to the Commission meeting so that Kendell could leave to attend a funeral.

Becky Gray with SEK-CAP met with the Commissioners regarding the results of a completed survey. She said that every three years they look at the needs in the community; she talked about the programs available such as Head Start, housing support and economic development. She discussed the poverty level and said there are assets in a County with job openings, schools and outdoor recreation areas.  

Artie Lucas with Goldberg Group Architects PC met with the Commissioners. Also present for this meeting was Dallas Smith, Ben Cole and Bill Martin. Mr. Lucas was checking the status of the jail project.   He advised he can help put together the bond proposal (no additional fees for this) for a new jail, which would take the place of a financial advisor saving thousands of dollars. He said they had worked with Cloud and Cedar County. Mr. Lucas said he would send quotes for a 70, 90 and 110 bed facility options. He said the 70 bed option would not be an option without more money out of pocket. He estimated a 110 bed facility to cost $6.5 million and a 90 bed facility at $5.8 million vs. a 70 bed facility at $65,000 per bed. Bill Martin said he would not interfere with the school bond issue and that there would be no public forum until the school bond is over. He said he wanted the school bond to be front & center. He said there are things that they could move forward with, such as the survey (but said he wasn’t sure if there was money in the budget for this). Allen said since he will be leaving as Commissioner in a few months he didn’t feel it was right for him to push for a new jail. Barbara said she felt that a lot of work had been done towards a jail and she is ready to make some decisions on a jail after the school bond. Bill Martin said he thought the subject had been dropped; he wanted it in the news that he is still interested in a new jail. Barbara said she is very interested in the jail project, she said the survey money is set aside in the budget. Bill Martin said he thought there was a broken link regarding proceeding with the survey. Barbara said she had been in contact with someone regarding the survey. Bill Martin said he wanted the survey to happen right after the school bond issue; he wanted to save money and said he didn’t see the need to use the financial group to do the survey. No decisions were made regarding the new jail facility. Barbara said she emailed Greg Vahrenberg July 25, 2014 and that the anticipated cost to do the survey would be between $12,000-$14,000.

It was decided that Barbara will be the voting delegate and Harold would be the voting alternate for KWORCC at the 2014 annual meeting.

Allen made a motion to allow Hester Transportation LLC to have an account at the Landfill (account due by the 20th of the month), Harold seconded and all approved.

The Bourbon County Commission met in open session with all three Commissioners and the County Clerk present.

Jason Silvers with the Fort Scott Tribune and Clayton Whitson with the Fort Scott Biz were also present.

Allen said he had attended the Community update meeting. He said he gave a brief update of what had been going on in the County.

Barbara moved to go into a 20 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Harold seconded (the session included the three Commissioners). No action was taken.

Barbara moved to recommend the following changes/updates to Resolution 31-13 (wage resolution)… remove the Noxious Weed Secretary position, change the Public Works Office Deputy (a deputy typically works under an elected official – therefore there will be no deputy pay for this position) to Public Works Office Clerk and set the hourly wage for this position to $10.83 beginning wage and $12.03 full wage (after four full pay periods). Harold seconded and all approved.

Barbara moved to eliminate the Public Works Secretary job description from the 1999 job description manual, Allen seconded and all approved.

Barbara moved to approve the new job description for Public Works Office Clerk, Allen seconded and all approved.

Barbara said with these changes she said she felt that they needed to notify the recent applicants for this position of the changes and the wage changes. She recommended re-advertising the opening and then moving forward with interviews.

Allen moved to approve the Solid Waste Management, 5 year plan (Jim Harris presented the plan on February 14, 2014 to the Commissioners), Harold seconded and all approved.

Rhonda Dunn met with the Commissioners, she said a few weeks ago she was given transfers to be made for the Road & Bridge Sales Tax fund, but she was told to wait on the transfers, she questioned if she should go ahead and make the transfers. Allen said yes, so that they know the balances.

Harold made a motion to go into a 15 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Allen seconded (the session included the Commissioners and Rhonda Dunn). No action was taken.

Lora Holdridge questioned if the Commissioners had made a decision or looked at the old tag office on the first floor (Lora wanted to move the Register of Deeds office to this office and move what was currently stored there to the Register of Deeds office on the second floor). Lora said she has items stored in the old tag office that occasionally people need access to and she has had to leave only one employee in her office so that she can go to where the maps are. She said in her current office, there is no way for her to be upfront with the public, and that she can’t leave the public alone where her documents are in the back office. Barbara asked if the Deeds office had always been in the same office, the answer was yes. Allen told Lora that there are other issues to work out, before they consider moving the room, Lora said there is room in her current office for the Election equipment; Allen told her she was not the one to make that decision. Barbara said if it was known what would happen with building a new jail, this would free up some first floor space. Lora said she was paying out of her own pocket to paint the office and didn’t want to paint if she eventually would move. Lora suggested that the back room of the Register of Deeds office could be used for the Drivers License. Rhonda Dunn said that if she takes over the Drivers License (which she has checked into and will visit with the State about it again in October) she doesn’t want the Drivers License moved to a different floor. Rhonda said she prefer that the folder and mail machine not be moved anywhere until after the tax statements are mailed (by November 1st) Barbara said the I/T department didn’t receive as much foot traffic, and this is a first floor office. Lora said she didn’t want to paint her current office if she might get to move; she said there is a three day weekend coming up and that would be a good time to do the work. The Commissioners said they don’t have a decision on moving the Deed’s office yet.

Robert Query questioned if the sink hole at the northwest corner of the Fulton Bridge (215th Street) had been fixed; he said his hay bailer came off the ground when he hit it. The Commissioners said it had not been fixed yet.

Allen made a motion to go into a 5 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Harold seconded and all were in favor (the session included the three Commissioners and Terri Johnson). No action was taken.

Allen moved to go into a 20 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Harold seconded (the session included the three Commissioners). No action was taken.

The Bourbon County Commission met in open session with all three Commissioners and the County Clerk present.

Tammy Helm with the Fort Scott Tribune was also present.

Jim Harris reported that they will be chip and sealing in Redfield and Bronson this week. He said they will be mowing around the County this week as well as placing rock on Calvary. Jim said they need to make cold mix next week. Jim said that there are roads around the County that need maintenance in 2015 that were chip and sealed 4 years ago.

Allen made a motion to go into a 20 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Harold seconded (the session included the three Commissioners and Jim Harris). No action was taken.

Harold Allen talked to the Commissioners about closing a portion of a road in Marco Estates; Jubilee Street adjacent from lots 2-5, block 4. The Commissioners told Mr. Allen that he needs to get the signatures of all property owners that have access to this road. Once he has the signatures, the Commissioners will consider closing the platted but unopened road. Mr. Allen told Jim Harris that there is standing water (due to clogged whistles) in the ditches at 1022 232nd and 1023 232nd. Mr. Allen questioned the Commissioners about a 600 foot road that he said the County installed (on private property) approximately 10 years ago; he questioned if this road was County property or private property. The Commissioners said they check into this road.

Darrin Petrowski met with the Commissioners regarding the US 69 project. He said there are two access roads that they are proposing to build. One of the roads is by the old AT&T building on US 69, he said in order for the drainage to work properly the road will have to have curb and gutter, therefore the road will have to be a hard surfaced road. Mr. Petrowski asked the Commissioners what type of road they want Calvary next to Cherry Grove Church; Barbara moved to have KDOT make Calvary Road from 69 HWY (for approximately ¼ to ½ mile) as a hard surfaced road, Harold seconded, all approved. Motion carried.

Lora Holdridge met with the Commissioners. She said she had attending a KCOA meeting last week. She presented a new fee schedule for 2015. She said they collect $40 for survey reviews (for Jim Schmidt the reviewer); she requested to charge an $8 fee for a service/handling fee for each survey (to be deposited in the General Fund). There will be a new resolution for 2015 reflecting this.

Lora told the Commissioners that CIC will increase the rates by 10% for 2015; she said that if Bourbon County employees will place 95% of support calls by email instead of phoning, they will only increase the rates by 5%.

Lora Holdridge also asked the Commissioners if she could move her office to the old tag office on the 1st floor (which is where Kendell stores Election equipment). She said in her current office, due to the increase in phone/foot traffic she needs to be upfront with the customers which she says there is not room in her current office). She said that all of the shelving from her current office would have to be moved. Allen asked how this would affect her budget; she said it would not affect her budget, because they would be doing all of the work themselves. Allen asked Kendell her opinion; Kendell said that the Election equipment is large and heavy and some would not fit in the elevator (when its time to move the equipment in and out of the building for an election); therefore someone would have to move the equipment up and down two flights of stairs. Allen told Lora that this is not a decision that they can make without discussing it further.

Dan Meara, Rhonda Dunn and Terri Johnson met with the Commissioners regarding the upcoming tax sale. Mr. Meara said that the next tax sale should be in mid to late October, 2014. Rhonda Dunn said that October is not a good time to have a tax sale, due to the fact that the tax statements would be generated to the previous owner; which would require the Treasurers office to pull 65 – 80 tax statements that were generated to the previous owner (so that they could be forwarded to the new owner). By having the tax sale in October, the new owner would be responsible for the 2014 taxes. Mr. Meara said that the new owner receives notice (oral, written and by a signed affidavit) that they are to pay the current years taxes. If the tax sale were to be held after January, the 2014 taxes would be forgiven. Rhonda said she wants to collect the 2014 taxes from the new owners so we need to have a tax sale in 2014. Rhonda said the sale needs to be done before November 1st. It was discussed to have a tax sale earlier in the year.

Rhonda Dunn asked the Commissioners about organizing a monthly meeting for department heads. She said the department heads could have a chairman and a secretary. She thought that the monthly meetings would improve communication and working together for the department heads. The Commissioners thought the monthly meetings would be a good idea.

The meeting adjourned at 12:03 pm.

Jim Harris recommended a part time employee at the Landfill to eliminate the overtime there. The Commissioners advised to move forward on hiring a part time employee for the Landfill.

In March 2014, Jim discussed the need for building a building (cement block with a plastic membrane) for a salt bin. He said they could stock pile salt for usage to save money. They would have to contract out the work to build the building. Allen said this could possibly be started in a few weeks.

Sharon Elder advised that 110th and Katy needs rock.

Harold said Kenny Blake inquired about seeding at the Blake Quarry, it was suggested that Jim check about using the no-till drill if we don’t seed this fall.

At 10:00 the Commissioners had the 2015 budget hearing. Terry Sercer said it had been budgeted for more spending and a 1% raise without a mill levy increase. There was a discussion over the amount of road work that has been done; Allen said we need to thank Jim for his leadership. Terry said the County needs to cut back on the spending in the Sales Tax fund; he said they are budgeting $1.3 million for Road and Bridge, but need to cut the spending back to $1 million in the Sales Tax fund. Terry said that Allen has done a great job in keeping the equipment updated. Allen moved to close the budget hearing, and Barbara seconded. Barbara moved to accept and sign the published 2015 budget, Harold seconded. The Commissioners and Kendell signed the budget.

The Bourbon County Commission met in open session with all three Commissioners and the County Clerk present.

Tammy Helm with the Fort Scott Tribune was also present.

Jim Harris and the Commissioners discussed the permits the County uses regarding a Utility Company. The County has permits and fees they use for a road cut and bore in the road. Craw-Kan and Rural Water has approached the County about waiving the fees for them, so they don’t have to pass the expense on to their customers. The fees associated with the permits help offset the charges that may occur to the County if there is damage to a road. There was discussion over possibly waiving the fees for a bore, but charging for cuts. Anyone wanting to bore or cut on a road needs to apply for a permit through the Road & Bridge department.

Frank Crystal inquired about closing the road in an area of 165th from Soldier to Tomahawk. The Register of Deeds office said there has never been a road here; therefore there is nothing to vacate.

Kathy Cooper with Community Corrections met with the Commissioners. She talked about the amount of money collected from adult offenders who are on intensive supervision and how this money may need to be used to cover a shortfall on their budget. Harold made a motion to allow Allen to sign the 2015 carryover reimbursement budget, Barbara seconded and Allen signed.

Allen said that Mark Wade contacted him regarding Cedar Creek needing mowed; Jim said they started mowing there yesterday.

Harold told Jim that on 225th between Tomahawk & Unique the road needs maintenance, possibly compacted.

Allen made a motion to go into a 25 minute executive session for non-elected personnel to protect their privacy, Harold seconded (the session included the 3 Commissioners and Jim). No action was taken.

Barbara talked to Jim about the need to post and change the voicemail to reflect the holiday hours at the Landfill.

Bobby Reed met with the Commissioners regarding clarification of the 2015 budget for the SEKRCC. Allen told him that once the 2015 budget is approved they will meet with the department heads regarding their budgets. Bobby asked about charging for fingerprints, he said if they can keep the money from the fingerprints in the SEKRCC budget they will collect the money, he said if not he prefers someone else collect the money. There was discussion over reducing the SEKRCC budget if they keep the money. No decision was made.

Barbara made a motion to go into a 15 minute executive session for consultation with the Attorney regarding attorney client relation, Allen seconded and all approved (the session consisted of the three Commissioners and Terri Johnson). No action was taken.
