A Wolf Point man told the Roosevelt County Board of County Commissioners, Tuesday, July 2, that they didn’t honor a promise to repair Rodeo Road before the end of spring.
Bill Juve referred to the minutes of the Oct. 31, 2013, commission meeting where he said the board had promised to repair holes on Rodeo Road, just east of the city of Wolf Point.
“Spring is come. Spring is gone,” Juve said.
“We’ve been down this road and back for four or five years now,” he said.
Juve said potholes are causing wear and tear to vehicles.
Commission presiding officer Duane Nygaard said asphalt and a provider for oil are available.
“We are projecting that, after Stampede, we will get that patched,” he said.
Juve responded with a question of which year’s Stampede.
“Before freeze up,” Nygaard said.
In other business, the commissioners approved a purchase of two computers for the sheriff’s office for dispatch services for a little over $3,000.
The commissioners are required to pre-approve purchases exceeding $500, which had not been done.
A representative of the sheriff’s office told the commissioners the 911 board approved the purchase.
Commissioner Gary Macdonald told him the commissioners ultimately have the power to make decisions.
The commissioners discussed hiring one-fourth of a human resources employee to share with Valley, Daniels and Sheridan counties. A meeting with commissioners of the other counties will be held at a later date.
