            The Board of County Commissioners met in special session at 3:00 p.m. in the Commissioners’ Room at the courthouse with all members and the County Clerk present.


The meeting was called in order to review estimates for remodeling or building a facility for the Extension Service.


            Darl Henson, Extension Agent, and Keri Liddeke, 4-H Agent, presented estimates for remodeling the 4-H Building and the Commercial Building at the fairgrounds. They also presented estimates for construction of a new building.


After reviewing the estimates, all present except the clerk went to view a building that was discussed as a temporary place for the Extension Service until a permanent facility is done. When the commissioners returned, the decision was made to temporarily relocate Extension to the 4-H Building or, if practical, the part of the Commercial Building that isn’t being remodeled.


The decision was made to remodel the Commercial Building as a permanent site for the Extension Service. This decision was made to save taxpayers money by making use of an existing county building that is not being fully utilized at this time.


Mr. Henson will give his floor plan sketch to Bob Forsen and request that he develop plans and specifications to submit to contractors for bidding separate components of the project. Frank Goldsby, Public Works Administrator, is the county’s general contractor who will oversee the project.


            The Commissioners adjourned to meet again in regular session on May 4, 2004.
