    County Sheriff Gary Menssen was present to discuss the Sentence to Serve program, which is running under Brown County’s jurisdiction. He was informed that effective July 1, they have been able to work in Watonwan County and if projects are available Neil Johnson should be called. The cost is $5.00 per hour per worker.  Commissioner Gustafson was informed differently, that they would not come to the County, but are giving hours to Watonwan County offenders to complete their sentences. Menssen would do further checking.  The possibility of hiring an employee to do the supervision was discussed.  Gustafson reported that in 2013 Brown County may have a 1/3 time position available to contract out to Watonwan.
    Sheriff Menssen reviewed the 800 MHz system, which is up and running. There are many complaints about the system, which is set up for 95 percentage coverage. The portables don’t work inside buildings. The only solution is to put up a 100-foot tower in St. James. Only one bid was received from Seibert Communications in the amount of $48,488.00. To make it an ARMER site, $120,000 of equipment is needed. No action was taken pending further review.

    Approved requesting proposals for engineering and design services for updated bridge load ratings.
    Risser reviewed a Public Works Department Inventory Policy as requested by the State Auditor’s Office and coordinated with Cassandra Page of their office.  Discussion was held regarding the tracking of fuel usage at the outshops.  Chairman Sanders noted that an Internet-based fuel tracking monitor is available.  
    Adopted the Public Works Department Inventory Policy as presented.
    Risser reviewed an analysis of contracted fuel consumption in 2012. A fill of unleaded fuel will be needed by year-end. It was discussed to purchase on an as-needed basis, because the timing is not good for contracting.
    The 2012 divided notice was received from MCIT in the amounts of $66,277 for Worker’s Comp and $101,378 for Property/Casualty.  Chairman Sanders also reported that rates for both will be decreasing.
    Reappointed Scott Sanders to serve on the South Central Minnesota Multi-County HRA Board when his term expires on September 29.
    County Assessor Mike Wacker reviewed a proposal to increase the per parcel fee charged to the cities and townships by 5 percent to be more in line with other counties, and to cover the cost of staffing the two fee appraisers.
