Commissioners give their nod for Seifert subdivision

After a little discussion on Wednesday the county commissioners moved to approve preliminary plat approval for the Seifert minor subdivision.

The property is located about 11 miles northeast of Valier and 2-1/2 miles west on Bullhead Road from the Westside Frontage Road.

The subdivision will create one residential lot on what is now pasture land. It was noted that the new subdivision will not create any adverse impacts on the natural environment or area wildlife.

The commission agreed to a date for an Open House at the newly remodeled Pondera Center at 311 S. Virginia. It will be held on Dec. 2 from 4-7 p.m. in conjunction with the annual Christmas Stroll conducted by the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce.


On a related topic, commissioners also met with Cynthia Grubb, the county health nurse in regards to the janitorial needs of the Pondera Center.


The commissioners arranged for service to start on Nov. 28.

Also discussed was funding for the sign for the Pondera Center. The estimated cost is $4,000 and Grubb advised the commissioners that $2,500 of that expanse could be funded from the Emergency Preparedness grant.

The engineering firm of Morrison-Maierle has requested the reallocation of space on the county’s computer server C drive at a cost of $320.

The commissioners moved to approve  the request.

The county has one geriatric chair that was declared surplus property. It has a market value of $50 and will be sold “as is” at a public auction or private sale. The date and time need to be determined.

The commissioners meet every Wednesday at 10 a.m. to conduct business. The public is always invited and encouraged to attend.
