County officials look at bridge, storage bldg. projects

Monday, January 9, 2006

Buena Vista County Engineer Jon Ites updated the Board of Supervisors this week on various county bridge projects.

The Board approved a total overall payment of $63,938 to Christensen Bros. Inc. of Cherokee for a twin deck overlay on C65.

The Board also approved an increase in county payment for right of way easements for small land parcels. Approved was an increase from $2,500 to $4,200.

In other business, the Board discussed the possibility of a vehicle storage building at the East Richland Annex, just south of the county jail site. Supervisors discussed possibly providing either space in the Annex or a construction trailer for the on-site construction manager.

Upon Ites' recommendation, the Board decided not to lower the speed limit on 120th Avenue on the east side of Lakeside.

"Right now I don't see the benefit" of lowering the speed limit, Ites said.

Supervisors acted to give election workers a quarter an hour pay raise with workers now getting $7.50 an hour and chairpersons going up to $8 an hour.
