Proceedings Statement of the September 15, 2014 Commissioners meeting.
By James E. Krotz
Present were Chairman Dan Kling, Commissioners Jack Andersen and James Krotz, County Clerk Sindy Coburn and Assessor Trudy Winter.
Acting as the Board of Equalization (BOE) the Commissioners reviewed two Homestead Exemptions denied by the State. In one instance the applicant did not meet the disability standards set by the Department of Health and Human Services and in the other the taxpayer had failed to file a protest within 30 days. The BOE is unable to make any change in such instances.
Assessor Winter reported that the BOE had made an error in recording their ruling on a Property Valuation Protest filed by Darlene Perreten. The Assessor will consult with the County Attorney regarding the proper procedure for correcting the error.
The Assessor presented the list of permissive exemption applications. The BOE approved a motion directing that the list be published in the newspaper of record. Publication of the list will enable the public to review the list of applicants and offer comments and/or protests before the Board considers them for approval later this year.
Link Thompson approached the Board with a request to purchase material from a county pit. Because the crushed rock is the product of a County contract it cannot be sold lest the County be in competition with private contractors offering similar material. Mr. Thompson was told that he could arrange to purchase pit-run material directly from the owner.
The Commissioners declared as surplus a "retired" BOSS snowplow – suitable for mounting on a pickup truck -- and approved the sale of the plow to the village of Clinton for $1800.
At 10:00 a.m. the Board opened a hearing on the proposed 2014-15 Budget.
No citizen appeared give testimony but the Board did receive a letter from Rudy Stanko protesting the amount allocated for the office of the County Attorney. The hearing was closed at 10:20 a.m. and the proposed budget was approved, as was a levy of 40.9075 cents per $100 of valuation to fund that budget. The levy is a reduction of 4.4858 cents from 2013-14.
Rick Willis the area representative for Congressman Adrian Smith appeared before the Board to invite the Commissioners to let the Congressman know of their legislative concerns.
