Supervisors approve loan agreement resolution and hear from agency on aging

The Wright County Board of Supervisors met Monday morning. They discussed several agenda items this week.

Wright County Engineer, Adam Clemons, appeared before the board to discuss various issues. He presented a resolution stating that the wage that the secondary road department received will stay the same as it is now, despite the union governing secondary roads being disbanded. The board unanimously approved the resolution stating the wage will stay the same. Clemons gave a road maintenance update after the wintery weather this weekend. He noted that there were three rounds of plowing. Graders came through after the snow froze to the road and salt was applied. He hopes the roads will clean up this week with nicer weather. He added that the department will be hauling rock to a Belmond site for road maintenance. The board then went into a closed session to discuss the purchase of particular real estate in the Secondary Roads department.

Eagle Grove city administrator Bryce Davis appeared before the board to present Resolution 2018-47 on approving a 5-year extension for the City of Eagle Grove to use incremental property tax revenues for an Urban Renewal Area. He explained it will be used for a new subdivision. This new subdivision will have between 25 and 30 lots and be used for residential housing. The board noted that this means that the county is growing and congratulated Davis on Eagle Grove’s efforts to expand, ultimately approving the resolution.
