Maintenance Supervisor Jett gave her weekly report to the Commissioners. Ms. Jett is worried about a heater that is being left on all night long and would like the Commissioners to tell the employee that it should be turned off when they leave and she will turn it on when they get there at 5:00 AM. The boiler for the Courthouse shut down twice during the cold weather because there were rocks in the coal.

Greg Benjamin and Adam Hagel with Stahly Engineering met with the Commissioners to introduce themselves and give an update on what Stahly has been doing.

Quarterly reports and financial documentation are required. For the Farrell Street Bridge, they are waiting on environmental permits for construction. The bridge has been deemed historic by Montana SHPO and the Army Corp. of Engineers so there must be mitigations measures in place for removal.
