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 John Hyde. 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. Willie Bridges- Pryor Mtn. Engineering: Bridges presented and recommended approval of utility permits for Lane 13 Marathon Oil, Big Horn Rural Electric Road 1 & Lane 2 1/2 & Road 9. Hyde moved to approve the utility permits as presented, the motion was seconded and carried. Bridges updated the Commission on the Steamship Min- ing application and incorporation of the counties recommendation to reroute Crystal Creek Road. Hyde moved to approve the Steamship Mining application as presented, the motion was seconded and car- ried. Bridges will prepare a letter for signature. Bridges reported that the first choice applicant denied the appointment to the Industri- al Roads Program so a new reviewer needs to be selected. Bridges informed the Commission that another person could be appointed besides those recommended by WYDOT and made a recommenda- tion. Ewen asked Bridges to contact potential candidates and find an agreeable nominee. BLM approved Right of Way renewals for 9-55, 9-56 and 9.56 were presented for Commission signature. Hyde moved to approve the Rights of Way as presented, the motion was seconded and approved. A BLM Right of Way renewal application was present- ed for approval on road 9.67. Hyde moved to approve the application as presented and asked about the maintenance issues that come with these Rights of Way. Bridges stated the maintenance is minimal and traffic is what will determine future obligations for maintenance. The motion was seconded and carried. Bridges updated the Commission on the review of Road 17 with Forest Service personnel and discussed a culvert installation. Bridges thought the culvert would be a good thing and the land owner is willing to contribute needed fill materials. There was discussion about necessary maintenance (water bars and crushed rock to maintain the road). The Forest Service will do the maintenance work and has asked the county to handle the pipe and installation. The Forest Service also ashed about hiring the County to come help do some of the maintenance due to lack of available Forest Service owned equipment. Ewen stated compensation would need to cover the costs, including mobilization and equipment maintenance/ wear & tear. Hyde pointed out that cooperating with the Forest Ser- vice and working on those roads is a great public benefit. Bridges requested a motion to proceed with the installation of the needed culvert. Hyde moved to install the needed culvert on Forest Service Road 17, the motion was seconded and carried. Bridges reported on the speed limit adjustment on Antelope Drive. Bridges thought that 30mph was about as slow as a speed study would justify. Ewen asked for clarification of the speed study. Grant requested that engi- neering studies to be done on 111/2 in Lovell as well as Antelope Drive in Basin. Bridges suggested others should be done while we have the equipment. The Roads Committee will be asked for recommendation as well. By consensus the Commission agreed to needed speed stud- ies being conducted as soon as possible. Carl Meyer - Airport Manager: Meyer presented the airport re- port. Hyde moved to approve proceeding with a geo asphalt study grant for the Cowley Airport. NAVAID grant applications for both air- ports were presented. Hyde moved to approve the applications as presented, the motion was seconded and carried. RFR #2 for the Greybull ramp project was presented for approval. Meyer presented an overview and changes to the WACIP based on conversations with WYDOT and FAA. Meyer clarified that the WACIP is a long term plan that can be changed in the future if needed. He presented the modified WACIP for approval. Ewen clarified this document isn't a commitment to spend it's just a plan. Hyde moved to approve the WACIP as presented, the motion was seconded and carried. Town of Greybull (Bob Graham, Paul Thur and Clay Coiling- wood) attended to discuss the airport Water System and Tank Project. Meyer gave an overview of the fast track process and the matches/ spending required for a fast track proposal that is due October 1st. Meyer also highlighted the project as a win/win for both the county and town, pointing out that funding needs to be discussed between the County and Greybull Town Council. Graham gave an overview of the project design and the anticipated cost of $1.1 million dollars. Graham stated that funding from Wyoming Water Development Com- mission is 67% with a 33% match. Tank ownership didn't seem to be an issue for project approval and that an agreement could handle that gap. The anticipated match for the project is $380,000. Graham re- quested that the Town and County split the required matching funds 50/50. Councilman Collingwood said he could only support the proj- ect if there was County participation. Ewen asked if Collingwood was happy with the 50/50 match, Collingwood confirmed he was. Grant reviewed the steps that created the tank system and said the original cost estimate to fie to Greybull was $300,000. Graham stated that the project wasn't engineered in the original stage and numbers were more discussion topics than accurate numbers. Grant disagreed that engineering had been done. Meyer clarified that an October dead- line commitment needs to be made and that a match hasn't been dis- cussed up to this point. Meyer suggested exploring funding options like SLIB, WY Water Development Commission, and Business Coun- cil grant deadlines. Ewen and Grant agreed it's a good thing for all involved but nobody has explored options for funding to date.. Meyer asked about the County's being willingness to be a partner and if the Commission would instruct him to look into funding. Hyde suggest- ed that he wasn't comfortable with committing funding at this point. Ewen clarified he didn't see Greybull asking for a contract they were just looking for good faith par tnership. Graham stated that July is the deadline for the Master Plan, which will provide clarification. Meyer asked for a commitment to research options at this point. Ewen clari- fied that water is needed to develop a business park at the airport. By consensus the Commission approved Meyer to do some research on this project. Fred Werner - B.H.C Maintenance: Werner stated that quotes for parking lot sealing were received and suggested that the jail park- ing lot move forward but the pavement in the courthouse is not worth sealing. Vendors suggested that courthouse pavement needs to be replaced.. Werner suggested the Courthouse be patched only at this point. Grant suggested chip sealing the lot to add some life. Werner stated drainage is an issue and that he would like to look into Commu- nity Enhancement grants to redo the lot. By consensus the Commis- sion instructed Werner to proceed according to the recommendation. Marquerite VanDyke and Carol Willard-Deputy County Clerks: VanDyke and Willard presented the bills and payroll for approval. Hyde moved to approve the bills and payroll as presented, the motion was seconded and carried.
