County seeks clarification on Sakakawea Estates roads

By Lee Coleman

The question of the road in the Sakakawea Estates was on a light agenda Monday at the meeting of the Mercer County Board of Commissioners.
Before any discussion on the road could happen, the Commission derailed the conversation and sought clarification on the ownership of the road before any further dialogue would take place.
“If we own it, we should be doing something about the road,” said Board President Gary Murray. “Shana (Brost, county auditor) can you look into it and see if you can produce the deed? We need to know if it is ours or not.
“We have to do our research and see where this goes.”
In other county news, Adam Wanner was selected to serve on the Weed Board and Brost shared a good financial report with the Board.
“At this point, I don’t have any concerns,” she said. “Everything really looks pretty good.”
The commission heard the second reading of a new county policy on the training of new employees.
Approved unanimously by the Board, the new policy, Section 205 Training Period, reads as follows: “All new employees shall work on a training period basis for a period of six (6) months after their initial date of employment. Part-time and seasonal employees must complete employment of six (6) months, whether or not the months of employment are continuous.”
