Engineer reviewed three quotes for a new gravel trailer. Hawkeye Truck Equipment bid $28,404 for a steel box, Brady Truck Equipment bid $28,600 for an aluminum box, and Sioux Falls Trailer Sales bid $33,040 for an aluminum box from Truck Equipment Service Company. Board discussed the merits of aluminum versus steel box, agreeing with the Engineer’s recommendation to purchase an aluminum model. Two used trailers were also reviewed, but were only twelve feet in length instead of the desired fourteen feet. Motion by Nieland, second by Danzer to approve the purchase of a gravel trailer with an aluminum box and hoist from Brady Truck Equipment for $28,600. On roll call, all voted aye. The aluminum trailer will be able to carry more pounds per load than a steel trailer, saving money in the long run.
Discussion was held concerning snow removal in the Courthouse parking lots. Due to a shortage of road workers, the Engineer suggested the Supervisors investigate hiring a private contractor for snow removal. Engineer Paulson will calculate what it cost the county to clear the snow from the Courthouse parking lots, and the Auditor will obtain quotes for snow removal by private contractors. Overnight parking in the northeast lot also needs to be addressed as the number of vehicles parking overnight will make snow removal more difficult. Snow removal issues will be revisited at a future meeting.
