This document wilt be signed by the commission chairman after being signed by Graham Dietz and Associates. The agreement had already been approved for form by the county attorney. Decision: William presented and recommended approval of the north airport grant agreement. Commissioner Grant moved, sec- onded by Commissioner Hinman, all were in favor and the motion was carried to sign the acceptance grant agreement for the North Big Horn County Airport Master Plan Study, Project Number 3-56-006-11. Decision: William presented and Commissioner Ewen signed the request for reimbursement of state funds for airport improvements #10 for the state grant project #GEY-06D, 2645 and # 16 for the state grant project GEY-06F, 2660. Discussion: William gave the commissioners an update regarding the Harold Shepard lease at the south airport. He said there is no salvage work being done at this time and William said he plans on putting the agreed upon signs up next week. William also told the commissioners the airport is now paying for garbage pickup at the South Airport. Commissioners asked about the Mountain Construction bill that the county has been holding for some time. William said he hasn't been able to talk with Mountain Construction yet and asked commis- sioners to hold on to the bill until William hears from them. Decision: Commissioner Ewen called for a break from 10:30 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. Discussion: Doug Miwamoto from the state agriculture department and William Bridges, Pryor Mountain Engineering, met with the commissioners to discuss, request and prepare a letter for the commissioners to sign which is addressed to the Governor Matthew Mead concerning the recent flooding. This letter declared Big Horn County to be an agri-business disaster due to flood damage. The letter will be forwarded to Washington D.C. Decision: Commissioner Grant moved, seconded by Com- missioner Hinman, all were in favor and the motion carried, to pass and sign Resolution #5, 2011-2012, asking the governor for disaster relief for flooding damage in Big Horn County. The resolution is on file in the county clerk's office. Discussion: William Bridges and Mike Calvin, Pryor Moun- tain Engineering, and Rod Wambeke and Jerry Denniston, Road and Bridge foremen, met with the commissioners to give updates on the roads that received flood damage in Big Horn County. John Hyde, emergency management coordinator, said they toured the areas with FEMA the previous week. The FEMA representative for our county is Steve Turner. William said some flood damage sites may not qualify for disaster money, however, a summary report and map will be forth- coming. Some of the damage is still underwater and will be assessed at a later date. William will prepare a worksheet for bridge sites that also need to be added to the FEMA list. William will prepare a flood damage repair priority list for the commissioners to review prior to adding the funds to the budget for the various repair projects. FEMA will reimburse the county at a later date. In other business William said the project specifications are nearly complete for the Cold Springs Road project. William will report back to the commissioners to inform them of the cost of finishing the Cold Springs Road project. William said he would also follow up with Michelle Burns, county attorney, on the status of negotiations for re- imbursement of damages to the Crystal Creek Bridge. Decision: After receiving a recommendation from Rod Wambeke, Commissioner Grant moved, seconded by Commissioner Hinman, all were in favor and the motion carried, to approve the fol- lowing permits: Town of Cowley, for a potable water line replacement, located at T.S. 57N., R. 97W., Sections 26, 27 & 28, Lane 7 1/2 and T.S. 57N., R. 97W., Section 25, Road 5. Decision: Commissioner Hinman moved, seconded by Com- missioner Grant, all were in favor and the motion carried, to adjourn for lunch at 12:00 p.m. and re-convene at 1:00 p.m. Discussion: Maria Eastman, grants administration, met with the commissioners on various grant issues. She gave an update on the Brownfield/Lovell Refinery project. Maria also gave an update on the State Land and Investments (SLIB) Board meeting and listed the various projects that did not qualify. Maria will get alternate proj- ects to consider at a later date. Maria informed the commissioners that the Lovell Library grant file was not handed over by the previous grants administration and that the file could not be located. She also reported that the file for the Washington Park restroom project was incomplete. The former grants administration had recommended that the two grants should be closed out even though unpaid bills were still pending. Maria will be able to get the supporting documentation for our files from the state. Maria said the grant for the library windows (ERG- Funds) was approved in chapter 32 consensus block monies. Maria will look for the $16,054.60 shortfall through other grant opportunities. Maria spoke with Brandy Davison, Volunteers ofAmerica (VOA), who agreed to have grants administration prepare the reimbursement re- quests with all details and reports supplied by Brandy. Maria also met with the sheriff's office to discuss better coordination regarding grants administration. Maria also told the commissioners of some workshops that might be advantageous to county personnel. Decision: Commissioners signed the request for reimburse- ment #7 for the Big Horn County Firewise Grant. Decision: Commissioners agreed that the wage correction for the Courthouse Boiler Energy Retrofit II grant project would have to be paid out of the general fund instead of the grant because the prior grants administration had not required the plumbing contractor to follow the Davis-Bacon wage requirements. Maria will draft a letter to the state for commissioners' signatures at their next meeting. Decision: The revival of the Wyoming Business Council Hyat- tville Community Center CDBG grant is underway. This will extend the grant until November 1,2011, to allow for completion of the project. Discussion:, Cynthia Johnson and Janell Metro, South Big Horn County Senior Citizens Center, and Maria Eastman, grants administration, met with the commissioners to discuss the consensus block grant and to ask if Maria would write a grant for new windows at the senior center. They told commissioners that they may come to them in the near future for a new water main to the center also. Janell said she presented pictures of the back parking lot to the previous grants administration and Maria has not been able to locate them. Decision: Janell asked that road and bridge inspect the Senior Citizen Center parking lot, as it will require repair in the near future. She said it might need to be topped or may need to be pulled up entirely. Maria said she would research possible grants which might provide funding for new asphalt for the parking lot. Decision: GinaAnderson,Assessor, presented the Big Horn County Report of Valuations, Levies and Taxes to the commissioners along with a resolution for approval. Commissioner Hinman moved, seconded by Commissioner Grant, all were in favor and the motion was carried, to accept the valuations presented by the assessor and to ap- prove Resolution 2011-2012 No. 6 dated August 16, 2011 as follows: REPORT OF VALUATIONS, LEVIES AND TAXES 2011 Big Horn County, Wyoming COUNTY VALUATION (as fixed by State Board): $264,016,644 STATE LEVIES PURPOSE OF LEVY LEVY TAXES LEVIED STATE GENERAL FUND (4 MILLS MAXIMUM) -0- Art. 15, '4 Wyo.
