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.
