The Dallas County Board of Supervisors convened Tuesday morning in regular session.
The meeting got started with the approval of the 29th pay application from the Samuels Group for the new law enforcement center, in the amount of $351,398.23. The Board then got an update on the project, from Samuels Group President Sid Samuels and lead architect Jerry Purdy with the Farnsworth Group. Next, the Supervisors continued their conversation from the previous meeting on a wetland development project in Washington Township, and approved moving forward with the project. There will be more action in the future to change the drainage district.
At 9:30 a.m. there was a public hearing on a three-year contract renewal with Cost Advisory Services for cost recovery analysis. With no objections, the Board approved the contract amount of $6,100. A second hearing was held at 10 a.m., this one on the final plat for the Deer Haven development between DeSoto and Redfield, which was also approved as presented. Following that, the Supervisors approved the purchases of an excavator and trailer for the Secondary Roads Department, which cost $205,500 and $73,601.18, respectively. County Engineer Al Miller then gave an update on completed road projects.
Other items approved included the abatement of $152 in real estate taxes, and the second pay application of $114,378.10 from CL Carroll and Company for the Ortonville Lagoon demolition. The meeting concluded with discussion on the public comment period regarding the draft of the North Raccoon Watershed plan, which ends this week.
