The minutes of the preceding meeting of Oct. 15, 2002, were ordered filed on motion by Commissioner Johnston and seconded by Commissioner Fear. The motion carried.
The official bond for Lynne Myers, bookkeeper for the recreation board, in the amount of $5,000 was approved and ordered filed with the county treasurer.
Dan Holgate, road and bridge superintendent, reported that the graveling of the south end of Paradise is nearly finished, and the board accepted a quote from Dave Kanski for fencing the new section, but decided to install four-wire fence instead of five wire.
One cattleguard can be eliminated and the property owner will be provided materials for fencing. It was decided that the county will retain the old road site and name it "Old Paradise Road" and the new portion will be "Paradise Road". Rural addressing will need to be reviewed for the existing houses.
Holgate reviewed the proposed Industrial Site Road. The Wyoming Department of Transportation Memorandum of Understanding was reviewed for the highway access and will be forwarded to the district office for signature. Nelson Engineering has estimated that engineering for the project will cost approximately $46,000, and the bridge materials estimate from Big "R" will be approximately $55,000, for a total of approximately $100,000. The board directed Holgate to proceed with the project.
Holgate reported on maintenance and the crusher. The board directed Holgate to inspect Front Street for drainage problems in the spring.
Sheriff Hank Ruland and Undersheriff Henry Schmidt reported on crowding conditions in the jail and the need to house prisoners out of county. Schmidt discussed helicopter standby for the months of December through April for search and rescue.

Mike McGinnis, waste management superintendent, distributed monthly reports, and reported on visiting balefills in Chadron and Gering, Neb. McGinnis informed the board that the Casper facility is comparable to our needs. McGinnis informed the board that the county DEQ permit will need to be issued and amended to allow a balefill before a new facility should be built. Recycling bins were discussed.
It was moved by Commissioner Fear and seconded by Commissioner Johnston to contract with Desert Rose of Orem, Utah, for scrap metal hauling and authorize the chairman to sign the contract. The motion carried and the chairman signed the contract.
The board reviewed and signed the BLM right of way for the Industrial Site Road.
