March 2022: County Clerk - $10,745.95; Clerk of District Court - $2,267.00. Specific Purpose Excise Tax Requisitions: Mrs. Mantle motioned, seconded by Mr. Jolovich, to approve Requisition #26 from the Courthouse Improvement Fund in the sum of $225,503.99. The motion carried. Liquor Permitting: Mr. Jolovich motioned, seconded by Mrs. Mantle, to approve two out-of-jurisdiction liquor permits as presented. The motion carried. The permits would be for a catering permit within the town of Wheatland and Albany County. Road & Bridge: Superintendent Beal Angle presented an encroachment license for Taylor Derra for approval. A discussion took place about the price of oil and its impact on the County’s ability to chip seal roads this summer – the Commissioners believed it would be wise to focus on gravel roads while oil prices are so high. Harris Park Road: Hal Hutchinson, County Engineer, spoke about the Harris Park Road project. The Hoskinson Ranch is requesting to improve to improve the road and the County will require that Hoskinson Ranch fund the project because it is happening at their request. Planning & Zoning: Planner Clark presented a request from Crafton Communications to obtain a Special Use Permit to add a 6’ X 8’ back-up generator to an existing cell tower. The applicant believes they do not need to go through the regular meeting process. The Commissioners denied approving the request without it going through the public notice, and meeting, requirements of P&Z Regulations. The request will be reviewed by the Planning & Zoning Commission on May 10th and the County Commissioners on May 17th. Ms. Clark presented one building certificate for approval from Seth Brockman. Public Health: Nicole Sticka, Public Health Nurse Manager, requested that the County accept the Prevention Program. The grant has been funded by the legislature for the next biennium and $222,800.03 has been allocated to Platte County. This amount is sufficient to cover the salary and benefits of a full-time employee – this makes the grant fully funded by the state and would require no match from the County. The Commissioners were supportive of Public Health taking on the prevention grant. Maintenance Department: Jim DeWitt, Maintenance Supervisor, provided an explanation of recently completed projects. Mr. DeWitt also spoke of some other maintenance issues that needed further direction from the Fair Board. Julie Henion, Library Director, and Mr. DeWitt spoke about building a Lee Miller memorial on the north side of the library. Lastly, Mr. DeWitt spoke about hiring summer help. Mr. DeWitt is requesting to hire six people for summer help, which will also work at the fairgrounds. The Commissioners agreed Mr. DeWitt should hire six summer helpers.

The full resolution is available online at www.plattecountywyoming.com or in the Office of the County Clerk.

Those change orders would release additional work. Mr. Jolovich motioned, seconded by Mrs. Mantle, to approve change orders #6 – #12 to the Courthouse renovation project. The motion carried. Health Insurance Renewal: Mrs. Mantle motioned, seconded by Mr. Jolovich, to renew health insurance with WEBT, with employees paying 9% of the premium and offering three deductible options.
