County Commissioners Approve Pay Raises

Roosevelt County Commissioners Gary Macdonald, Duane Nygaard and Jim Shanks held a public meeting, Oct. 8, to approve several items.

The commissioners began by approving the minutes for the public meeting on Sept. 12, as well as the minutes for the regular meeting that took place in September.

During public comment, Bill Juve asked the commissioners if they found any material to fill the holes in the road. Nygaard said one of the operators in the area is on sick leave and they have not been able to fill the holes at this time. He also said he was not sure if they will be able to catch up before the roads freeze.

Under administrative issues, the commissioners approved the report of investments and pledged securities from the treasurer's office. They also approved the claims for Sept. 19.

In business matters, the commissioners also approved pay raises for Tarrah Poitra, Carol Rasmussen, Peggy Purvis, Loren Weston and Vince MacDonald.

Prior to the end of the meeting, Roosevelt County Attorney Ralph Patch introduced new deputy county attorney Jordan Knudsen.
