Sick Leave Donation: Commissioner Jolovich motioned, seconded by Commissioner Mantle, to approve the donation of seven (7) hours of sick time from one employee to another. The motion carried by unanimous vote.

Lease Agreement: Clerk Ervin presented a lease agreement between the County and Little Walker Properties for use of the temporary courthouse at 2020 South Street. Commissioner Mantle motioned, seconded by Commissioner Jolovich, to approve a lease agreement between Little Walker Properties and Platte County. The motion carried by unanimous vote.

Road & Bridge: Beal Angle, Superintendent, presented an encroachment license from Wheatland REA for approval. Mr. Angle also presented updates regarding equipment to be sold, equipment that has recently broken down and various road projects. Road & Bridge is aware of rough road conditions, but a lack of moisture has made road maintenance difficult.

East Laramie River Road: On October 19, 2021, David Kuntz spoke with the Board regarding E. Laramie River Road and the inability for a school bus to access their home. At that time, the Board expressed concerns of whether the right-of-way (known as County Road 13) had been vacated, and if not where it physically lays. The Board requested bids from surveyors but those were not received. Liz Kuntz came to the Board requesting an update and requested that the County maintain the road, including the last 7/10ths of a mile after the road crosses the railroad tracks. The Board will continue to work on the right-of-way questions but in the meantime will work with the school district to see how a school bus can access the home.

2022 Mill Levies: Danette Eppel, County Assessor, presented mill levies for the 2022 tax year. Commissioner Mantle motioned, seconded by Commissioner Jolovich, to certify mill levies as presented for 2022. The motion carried by unanimous vote.
