Chair- man Ewen recognized guests and presented the agenda, a motion was made by Hyde to accept the agenda as amended; the motion was sec- onded and carried. Willie Bridges - Pryor Mnt. Engineering & Road and Bridge: G. Flitner attended to present the ditch project he was working on to get water to pivots on his land. Flitner reported that boring under Beaver Creek Road in thfit location was not feasible because of rock issues. Bridges & Hovey confirmed the reports given by Flinter and recommended allowing the cut with global fill being used to replace the back fill to prevent settling. Bridges presented the Beaver Creek Road Cut permit and recommended approval. Hyde moved to approve the cut on Beaver Creek Road for G. Flitner with the fill stipulations set by the County Engineer. The motion was seconded and carried. Hovey reported that the Table Mountain gravel pit has been closed for the year and that excavation for the transfer station was underway. Hovey also reported that Road 26 and the Lower Nowood Road head- ed toward Tensleep were in the process of being crack sealed. Ewen thanked Hovey for the work that Road and Bridge is doing on the landfill construction project. Hovey presented permits on Sagebrush and Horseshoe Lane that had been approved at a meeting in March but missed signatures. Hovey presented and recommended approval of a utility permit for Road 16 1/2 (Mendez Bros.) Hyde moved to approve the utility on road 16 1/~ as presented, the motion was second- ed and carried. Carrizales talked about the water issues on the Seed Ranch Road and suggested a meeting between land owners, Bridges and Hovey to talk about moving/eliminating ditches and other water issues. Wam- beke reported on work in the North including 12 miles of crack seal- ing that is complete and ready for chipsealing.

Bridges summarized a concern received from MI SWACO on Davis Lane and their request for clarification on the right of way. Bridges stated that he had heard similar concerns from WYOBEN. Bridges requested permission to request a clarification letter on the right of way from the County Attorney. Ewen stated that if the County Attorney was okay with such a letter that was acceptable. Hyde stated he agreed with Ewen but didn't see the reason for such a letter. Bridges sug- gested that the County get with BLM to obtain rights of way on the BLM section at the upper end of Davis Lane and also the south end of Crystal Creek (Gun Barrel Road) to create a formal understanding of maintenance. Ewen agreed that this should be pursued sooner rather than later because BLM access continues to get more and more re- strictive. Hyde moved to proceed with an easement/right of way for Lane 33 and the Gun Barrel road that ties to Crystal Creek Road. The motion was seconded and carried. Bridges reported that traffic stud- ies will begin again within the week in the Burlington area. Hyde mentioned a complaint he received about the rail road crossing near Spence road and the potential hazard. Bridges stated that WYDOT has the authority over that private to public crossing change and due to the low traffic volume it isn't something they have been willing to address to date. Bridges also stated that Burlington Northern is not in favor of the change because of costs and changes in their line use. Bridges will follow up with WYDOT. Hyde shared a concern regard- ing a road near the Mickelson and Asay properties and whether or not it was abandoned. Bridges will check on this issue/concern and report back.
