Ewen, Members present: Keith Grant, John Hyde Others County Representatives: Lori Smallwood County Clerk; List of attendees on file. The meeting was called to order at 9:00 AM by Chairman Ewen; followed by the Pledge of Allegiance led by Keith Grant. Chairman Ewen recognized guests and presented the agenda. A motion was made by Hyde to accept the agenda as amended; the motion was seconded and carried. Engineering/Road and Bridge: Wambeke and Hovey reported the purchase of excavators and the time already saved on a culvert installation. Hovey presented a utility permit for Road 42 and recom- mended approval. Wambeke presented and recommended approval of an access permit for road 6. Hyde moved to approve both the utility and access permits as presented, the motion was seconded and car- fled. Grant asked about the cattle guard and no gate issue on the WYDOT Highway 32 project. Grant requested that Bridges draft a second letter for Commissioner signature expressing the concerns over that project. Hyde ask Bridges about road 111/2 and the concern over right of way, and speed on that road. Bridges said speed bumps are hard to maintain on a dirt road and he doesn't recommend that. The documents will be pulled, reviewed and an update given to the Commission. Hyde expressed asked how that right of way was deter- mined. Bridges suggested getting the road committee back together to try to address some of the continuing concerns. Bridges present- ed a BLM right of way renewal application for roads 955, 956, 957. Hyde moved to sign the renewal application as presented, the motion was seconded and carried. Bridges gave a summary of WYDOTs bridge assessments and highlighted issues that were noted and need attention. Nothing was noted as critical and Bridges was pleased with the report. Joy Hill presented information on a WYOBEN flood plain devel- opment and discussed how the new flood plain regulations relate to that project. Both Bridges and Hill stated the extra work and time involved to secure a flood plain permit according to the regulatory process should not be necessary in this case, as the proposed project is well above the river channel, dearly showing the FEMA flood plain map to be in error. Having the area removed from the flood plain will require a lot of work and expense and will not be required to issue the permit for the building to move forward.

Michelle Burns - County Attorney: Burns stated that the coun- ty should pursue contracting for the services of court appointed at- torneys. Burns suggested an announcement be developed to solicit interested parties. Burns will develop an MOU using the States MOU as a model. Burns believes $3,000 to $4,000 per month would be suffi- cient, which will provide considerable savings over the amount spent during the last year.

Felix Carrizales & Vangi Hackney- Big Horn County Fair Board Chairman: Carrizales attended to discuss the finances and current funding shortfall for the multi-purpose building. Felix ran through the numbers and requested guidance from the Commission on what remains to be done. Hyde stated he was under the impression that the final bid numbers were going to Synergy by the end of June with final project numbers to be presented to the Commission by July 15th. Carrizales reported that fundraising is ongoing. Grant stated that design build contracts provide opportunity for Synergy to design to fit the funding on hand. Ewen commented on the design build pro- cess and the nnderstanding of the Commission regarding the project. Cardzales asked if the time line could be postponed. Ewen stated the time line is already set, by contract, with the contractor. Carrizales asked if the county would fund the short fall if needed. Ewen stated that the fundraising has gone very well and there is every indication the funding needs will be met. Carrizales inquired about a potential promissory note, Hackney indicated a promissory note could lean on future funding. Carrizales asked the Commission if the building will be utilizable. Grant shared he was told the arena would be the same size as the Thomas and Mack arena. Ewen said that they relied on the Fair Board to ensure the building was the proper size for in- tended use and that the work session on July 15th should have an- swers to many of these questions. Carrizales requested that $23,500 unspent 2013-2014 budget be applied to the building. Ewen and Hyde expressed appreciation for the fund raising efforts to date but that it was the Fair Board's responsibility and the County does not have the money to commit any more resources to the construction. Carrizales expressed a desire not to let everyone down if the building is not com- pleted as planned. Ewen expressed his desire to allow the Fair board to transfer $23,500 left over from their 2013-2014 operating budget to the building fund. Hyde stated he was not in favor of allowing the transfer. The check request for 823,500 was not approved and the funds will go back to the county general fund.
