Scott Deal informed the Commission that the big arena is a quarter complete. The Highway Department moved the road going by the arenas to the barns. Will Clark Electric is half done with the new electrical hook-ups. Scott ordered trees from Stanley County Conservation District, the trees should be ready to plant in May.

If the County buys the truck, insurance will pay the County $67,115, if insurance takes possession of the truck, insurance will pay the County $78,500. Lee would like to keep it for parts for the other 2014 Freightliner. Lee has been looking for another truck to replace the wrecked one. All the trucks he has found are automatics and all Detroit motors.

Bad River Road – Mag Treatment: People who live and travel Bad River Road have been asking if the County is going to apply another Mag Treatment. The treatment has been holding Bad River Road together the way it is meant to be. Lee will contact Z&S Dust Control to get something set up.
