Commission approved.

9:50am Stacey left the meeting.

10:00am Alba Higgins, Shop Foreman; Bobby Wiedmer, Road Supervisor joined the meeting.

Shop Updates

Discussion on Motor Grader Bids.

The Road Dept. would consider one Motor Grader as a John Deere machine; the current shop grader has minimal hours and trade-in value would be higher and would allow exposure to John Deere.

Field guys would rather stay with CAT due to significant operating differences. Commissioner Baldwin states; if you have multiple brands of equipment, then you need multiple filters on hand. Commissioner Ranum feels that CAT is not working with discounts and competitive bid pricing, as they know we are a CAT county. The County had previously upgraded all 7 machines at the same time, but retained these 3 in order to break up the roll over due to a decline in oil industry. In the past the county has had Champion and John Deere Motor Graders. Commissioner Rost agrees with concerns regarding CAT offering competitive bids. Overall, there is not a market for Motor Graders. Discussion on lack of interchangeability of wings and plows followed. In order to trade the 3 oldest machines and go with John Deere, the machines would require metal/body work repairs for the buy back. Road Supervisor stated that John Deere equipment is in the county with loaders, backhoes, etc.

Commissioner Rost made the motion to approve Caterpillar for the 3 Motor Graders. Being there was no second Commissioner Baldwin stepped down from Chair to second the motion. Commissioner Baldwin asked for any other discussion. 2 Ayes. 1 Nay. The motion carried.

4:43pm Debbie left the meeting. Mona Madler and Drury Phebus joined the meeting via conference call.

VETERANS POW MIA MEMORIAL

Drury feels the placement detracts from the WWII Memorial and wants it moved to the side.

Mona, spoke with the monument company, who did the placement, and since it is epoxied to the concrete, there is potential to crack or damage the stone. The company does not recommend attempting to move it. Drury still would like to see it moved.

4:47pm Drury ended the phone call thereby leaving the meeting.

Mona has had a lot of feedback and only has received two complaints. The location was chosen due to having existing concrete and an original design flaw that would have caused further water or ice damage to the Veterans Monument. Mona would like to leave the monument’s placement.

It is viewable from the parking lot for those who are unable to get out of their vehicles. Aesthetically out of balance if it was moved left or right of existing monument.

Although, currently there are no POW-MIA’s from Fallon County, the monument is a recognition to those individuals, and in the future, should the need ever arise, names could be carved into the monument.

Commission feels that it will be difficult to move and should leave it alone. Decision is not to move the POW-MIA Monument.

5:00pm Mona ended the phone call thereby ending the meeting.

9:08am Tom Kachel, Manager of Landfill Operations joined the meeting.

9:10am Travis Mashak, Greg Gunderson, and Dan Flor; Farmers Union joined the meeting.

LANDFILL PRICES

Commissioner Ranum stated the landfill prices from years ago were very low and therefore raised. Issues seemed to have arisen since there have been large cleanups.

Travis – There has always been opportunity to come voice concerns just as Farmers Union is now doing.

9:17am Steve Schweigert, Farmers Union Board Member joined the meeting.

Rich stated that soil testing and well monitoring is $90,000.00 in addition to excavation and landfill fees. One solution is to use the old landfill/junk vehicle graveyard site and have a one-time use land farm for low impact contaminated soils. Discussion followed on 50,000 parts per million (ppm) of hydrocarbons constitutes low impact soil and Farmers Union’s soil tested at 16,000 ppm. Hot spots were found at loading spot of bulk tank. Soil could be mixed to reduce hot spots.

Discussion followed on what testing was completed in comparison to the diesel range organic/gas range organic (dro/gro) testing the landfill does. Discussion of no limitations on yardage followed.

Commissioner Baldwin contacted Sheridan and Richland Counties with like landfills. Fallon County is three times higher. The County landfill should be competitive and not have individuals haul to other counties.

One reason rates were increased was due to North Dakota hauling contaminated soils here.

Commissioner Ranum asked if Tom could take his own tests from the Farmers Union site.

WBI charges $300.00 per test. Questioned the need for double testing, as samples would be sent to the same testing facility. DEQ must follow the work plan explicitly. It is very stringent.

9:28am Mary Grube, Planner Administrative Assistant joined the meeting.

9:30am Jim Rolle, West Central Environmental Consultants joined the meeting via conference call.

Placement of low impact contaminated soil from Farmers Union discussion followed.

Discussion of current rate of $100.00 per ton, would the state even consider reimbursement? Perhaps, but they would drag their feet, Travis knows of one project that has been tabled since 2014.

The higher the cost the more they will push back and drag this out.

9:50am Jim ended the phone call thereby leaving the meeting.

Discussion in regards to application server and domain server. Domain server handles computer settings. There are approximately 70 computers in the courthouse and about half are not on the domain.

10:15am Trent joined the meeting.

911 is not included on the domain, but does include the Sheriff’s office. Need to do cable cleanup. Courthouse – Andy is taking care of that, but just needs a backup to be ordered.

Need to add a firewall and antivirus for Health Dept. and Senior Center.

Health Dept. is in violation of HIPAA. Andy wants to put a server in the Health Dept. and would need firewall and access points. Andy can purchase.

Garrett with DIS suggested that Andy help do the work and would reduce labor costs. 80-100 man-hours to complete the work. Andy does not recommend the cable clean up as quoted; he feels that has already been done.

Andy is requesting permission to help.

Trent said all cables are brand new in the Sheriff’s Dept. and feels it does not need cleanup. DIS has quoted a $5,000.00 charge for this and he is unsure what that fee would do.

Commissioner Baldwin asked if we should be messing in the Sheriff’s Dept. at all.

Andy read through itemization of costs and fees DIS quoted.

Trent inquired as to DES, as he thought they were supposed to have grant money available? Grant money cannot be spent on equipment purchase.

Andy estimates the Health Dept. costs to be $11,000.00-$12,000.00. Discussion on securing the server in a room at the Health Dept.

Commissioner Baldwin asked if any of this expenditure is in the Health Dept.’s budget? Andy will visit with her.

Andy to report back to the Commission.

Andy still has about $130,000.00 in his budget.

Discussion then followed on the Colorado pick up the Extension Office was using. Inquired about transferability to Outside Maintenance and put the Dodge up for auction?

Commissioner Ranum inquired into status of insurance. There is no issue in regards to insurance.

Decision was to fix the Dodge and continue use rather than auction.

Discussion followed on the original contract with Military and Airport. Dialogue continued with Turch’s office and accomplishments for Fallon County.

1:17pm Commissioner Ranum joined the meeting.

In the original Military Operations Area (MOA) the Air Force had 240 days of large PRTC’s and David Turch was able to reduce to 10 days. He worked MOA critical mitigations with the Air Force; open dialogue with Ellsworth Air Base and Senators to increase radar coverage in our air space.

Commissioner Ranum requests detailed monthly reports.

David’s office is prepared to call in, as anything on paper is expensive, considered political, and has to go through many hands for review of language before sent out to Commission. Preference would be verbal communication as it allows questions and dialogue.

Discussions on processes and procedures in Washington DC.

David then discussed return on investment (RIO). Baker Lake fines were $37,500.00 per day from the EPA for non-compliance. If Fallon County would have sued and lost, fines go to $75,000.00 per day retroactive.

When Turch stepped in communications were in the process of breaking down and feels that they helped get the Corp of Engineer involved. When the Tornado happened, David was here the day after and had all the matrix paperwork to show how to move ahead and get FEMA funds involved, which started with the Governor.

David asked for continuing updates on the dewatering and progress of Baker Lake.

Regulatory relief- Turch is able to provide a presence in Washington DC and able to aid in what is due to the constituents.

Commissioner Ranum asked if during the clean out lake debris, will adjustment steps be made to accommodate cleaning out the rest of it?

There will be several EPA assessments done after it’s dewatered and will most likely would be looked at during that time.

David feels that Fallon County is one of the largest success stories he has worked with in return on investment.

Commissioner Baldwin stated, thus far Fallon County has not allowed the Air Force use our communications towers –how long can we hold out?

Turch is currently looking to duplicate the communications solution that Alaska has between the community, FFA and the Air Force.

There will be a monthly conference call for updates.

3:05pm Andy Fujimori, Computer/IT Tech; Garrett Johnson and Gary Habel with DIS joined the meeting.

Garrett discussed the DIS Security Analysis Report. Identified security issues with four different networks and not being on a domain. Each computer should access the server domain and many computers are not on the domain. Sheriff’s office would have their own network server, the courthouse would have one and the City would fall under the Courthouse or segment them onto their own server. In addition, critical documents were identified as being saved on their own hard drive. Using a domain would force documents to save to the server and all data could be restored from there. The server would then push updates out when needed. Five internet connections coming in from Mid-Rivers and there is a fiber optic line currently coming in. Need to utilize one large connection and then branch into multiple connections once inside the courthouse. Need to separate the servers and backup servers for disaster recovery. Currently there are two backup’s for our server and one backup server should be moved to the 911 closet and also use a Cloud so that if a tornado were to wipe out the building you would still have the cloud. Discussion on Crypto (data loss and ransoms) and compliance for backup (CJIN and HIPAA). Server/Network was not ready for domain migration that Tyler Tech did. We have new servers and still operating unsecure with no Domain.
