Board of Commissioners of Converse County

    The regular meeting was called to order at 8:15 a.m. on July 2, 2019.  Present were Chair Robert Short, Vice-Chair Jim Willox, Commissioners Mike Colling, Rick Grant, Tony Lehner and County Clerk Lucile Taylor.

    Misters Josh and Vern Moore discussed their proposal to realign a portion of Ross Road where it goes by their homes.  The County would not have any cost for the construction of the realignment. Health and safety for family members and animals are a concern. There was a concern that the County does not currently have an easement for Ross Road across the State and BLM sections.  The Moores asked if the County would submit the required permits for the proposed new route.  The County will pursue obtaining the necessary permits across the State and BLM.

    The regular meeting recessed at 12:00 p.m. and reconvened at 1:00 p.m.

    The regular meeting recessed at 4:00 p.m. into the Board of Health.

    The regular meeting reconvened at 8:30 a.m. on July 3, 2019.

    Mr. Kevin Christensen, High Plains District Manager and Mr. Lonnie Bagley, Casper Field Office Manager, BLM, discussed progress on the EIS in Converse County.  Vice-Chairman Jim Willox discussed Ross Road and the need for a ROW through the BLM portions.  Mr. Bagley said one application to the BLM would suffice.

    Mr. Thomas Osen, 4th Dimension Surveying, and Mr. Ray Bozlee, Golden Field Services, discussed the advantage of LiDAR for surveying. If all of Converse County was surveyed, the cost would be approximately $931,902.

    The regular meeting recessed at 12:00 p.m. and reconvened at 1:30 p.m.

    Mr. Jim Wasson and Mr. Tim Morgan, Black Hills Energy, discussed placing a gas pipeline in the Irvine Road right-of-way.  BHE is requesting a variance to the County’s Bore Permit adjusting the depth to 4 feet to the top of pipe.  Black Hills Energy will submit a ROW agreement for consideration.
