C20091113                                                                                                                                           November 13, 2009


                The commissioners met in regular session at 9:30 a.m. with Commissioners Marty Long and Madison Traster and the County Clerk present. Chairman Higgs was absent due to illness. Commissioner Traster was acting chairman for the day.


                Marty Long made the motion to approve the minutes of the November 3, 2009 meeting and the claims against the various funds of the county. Madison Traster seconded the motion and it passed.


                Jerry Jo Deckert, EMS Director, presented information on that department?s software billing contract. Marty Long made the motion to approve the 2010 software billing contract in the amount of $2,488.88. Madison Traster seconded the motion and it passed.


                J.D. Neufeld, Civic Center Manager, and Jerry Jo Deckert thanked the commissioners for allowing them to attend the Certified Public Manager class and invited them to their graduation ceremony on December 4 in Topeka.


                Randy McCauley, Road Department Administrator, presented road crossing permits which were reviewed and approved by the commissioners.


                Sheriff Lance Babcock joined Randy McCauley to talk about posting 65 mph speed limit signs on paved county roads. It was decided that signs will be placed on most paved roads that don?t have them. Short paved roads such as the one by the Mennonite school east of town will remain at 55 mph.  Mr. McCauley talked to the commissioners about the necessity of road repairs on Rose Lane. He explained there are 2 residents who don?t want anything done to the road because they say it keeps people from speeding on the road.  It was decided the road needs to be maintained in a safe manner. Since lots along Rose Lane are platted but the roads aren?t, Mr. McCauley will talk to the landowners and explain that they should get the roads platted too.


                Marty Long made the motion to adopt Resolution 09-07 waiving the requirements of K.S.A. 75-1120a (a) as they apply to Grant County and resolving that the financial statements and reports of the county be prepared on the basis of cash receipts and disbursements as adjusted to show compliance with the cash basis and budget laws of this State. Madison Traster seconded the motion and it passed.


                Marty Long made the motion to appoint Cynthia Davis to replace Julia Traster on The Legacy at Parkview Board of Trustees. Madison Traster seconded the motion and it passed.


                The commissioners adjourned to meet again in regular session on December 1, 2009.
