Emergency Management Monthly ReportEmergency Management Coordinator Bill Gordon presented the 2011 Emergency Management Performance Grant for the Commissioners' approval. This grant provides 50% of the annual funding for Emergency Management. Brad Basse moved to approve the FY 2011 Emergency Management Performance Grant award in the amount of $14,521.00 for the period 10/1/11 – 3/31/12. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Maintenance Monthly ReportMaintenance Supervisor Chuck Carver reported that the County Planner's new office is just about ready to move into. The Planner is in need of a new desk and chair, which Mr. Carver felt could be obtained for less than $1200.00. Mike Baker moved to approve the purchase of a new desk and chair for the Planning office for an amount not to exceed $1200.00 - funds to come from Courthouse Equipment. Brad Basse seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Sam Hauf has been hired for the maintenance department and is working out well. June Peterson will continue to work until sometime in October to cover for vacations and allow the department to catch up on their backlog.
The new mower has been delivered and has cut mowing time to about half what was required previously. Mr. Carver has investigated costs for placing sidewalks along the new parking lot and has received an estimate of roughly $25,000.00. As this was considerably more than was budgeted for the project, the Commissioners asked Mr. Carver to meet with Town of Thermopolis representatives to determine what their requirements might be and how costs might be reduced. Mr. Carver will report back in October. Mr. Carver reported that a shower drain line broke and caused minor flooding in the law enforcement records storage room. The line has been replaced and repairs are nearly complete. A survey of the old pipes will be performed this winter to try to locate and prevent future problems.
Road and Bridge Monthly ReportRoad & Bridge Superintendent Ray Shaffer reported that the closing of the Baird Pit is nearly complete. Pit run is being hauled from the Wagonhound Pit. The County is still working with the BLM on their enlargement application for the Wagonhound Pit. The crushing project is complete and chips have been staged at various sites around the county in anticipation of the chipping project starting this Thursday. Mr. Shaffer indicated that the price of oil for the chipping project should be somewhat less than anticipated due to a change in the type of oil being used. All of the overlay projects have been finished for the year. The leftover cold mix will be used for grader patching throughout the county this fall.
Mr. Shaffer has discussed the bridge repair/replacement funding options with WYDOT. The only funds available require full engineering and replacement of the bridge, with a 10% cost match on the part of the county. Mr. Shaffer does not feel that complete replacement of the Gooseberry Bridge is necessary at this time due to the minimal use of the bridge and the nature of the required repairs. Chairman Lumley asked Mr. Shaffer to check with WYDOT District Engineer Shelby Carlson to make sure that repairing the bridge rather than replacing it would not eliminate Hot Springs County's access to program funding in the future. A 36" culvert has been replaced on Upper Grass Creek Road. The second round of roadside mowing is complete and fall seeding will start shortly. The new county-wide fuel system is installed and operational. Mr. Shaffer is checking on operator certification requirements to make sure those are met for the new system.
Teet Weston has resigned to take a position with Washakie County. The position has been advertised, with interviews to be conducted this week. Mr. Shaffer hopes to have someone on board by the first of October.
Youth Alternatives Monthly ReportDirector Alan Rossler reported that there are only four participants in the program at this time. Four participants successfully completed the program in August. There were no 48-hour holds in August. Mr. Rossler has completed the True Thought certification process and has started the Corrective Thinking classes for program participants.
Planner Monthly ReportPlanner Bo Bowman reported that the public comment workshop on the Bighorn Basin Resource Management Plan sponsored by the NRPC went very well with good participation by county residents. The NRPC has also asked that the Commissioners consider asking Karen Budd-Falen to draft additional comments on the BHB RMP. After discussion, the Commissioners felt that there was not enough time for Ms. Budd-Falen to do the required research on this matter prior to the comment deadline of September 7, 2011, and that adequate response has already been made via ERG and the Commissioners. Chairman Lumley suggested that a short letter be drafted to Mr. Don Simpson, State BLM Director, reiterating the County's request that the County's land use plan be taken into consideration per FLPMA regulations prior to making decisions regarding BLM control of lands in Hot Springs County. Brad Basse moved to draft said letter for the signatures of the three Commissioners. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Mr. Bowman reported that the pending septic system regulation compliance issues at two sites in the county are in the process of being resolved. As a side note, a new septic system application form is now available from the DEQ and is being used by the county.
Constitution Week ProclamationRepresenting the Washakie Chapter of the DAR, Ruth Clare Johnson and Kay Rush appeared to request the Commissioners to sign a Proclamation designating September 17 – 23, 2011, as Constitution Week in honor of the 224th anniversary of the signing of the Constitution. Ms. Johnson also provided the Commissioners with copies of a pamphlet on the history of the Star-Spangled Banner and a booklet on the Constitution. Brad Basse moved to approve the Constitution Week Proclamation as follows:
WHEREAS: September 17, 2011, marks the two hundred twenty-fourth anniversary of the drafting of the constitution of the United States of America by the Constitutional Convention; andSigned: John P. Lumley, Chairman Attest: Hans Odde, County Clerk

Mike Baker seconded the motion. Discussion: Commissioner Baker expressed thanks and gratitude on behalf of the County to Ms. Johnson for her dedication and efforts on behalf of Constitution Week. Motion carried.
Public Hearing – Stone's Throw Liquor LicenseChairman John P. Lumley opened the public hearing for the annual liquor license renewal for Krista Raymond, LLC, doing business as Stone's Throw Restaurant at 11:15 a.m. Clerk Odde reported that the Wyoming Liquor Division has reviewed and approved the application to proceed to hearing. A check with local law enforcement reveals no alcohol-related violations in the last year. After three calls for public comment, receiving none, Chairman Lumley declared the hearing closed at 11:17 a.m. Brad Basse moved to approve the liquor license renewal application from Krista Raymond, LLC, dba Stone's Throw Restaurant. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Public Hearing – Flying Dutchman Liquor LicenseChairman John P. Lumley opened the public hearing for the annual liquor license renewal for Violet M. VanBuskirk, doing business as the Flying Dutchman open at 11:18 a.m. Clerk Odde reported that the application is complete and approved by the Wyoming Liquor Division for public hearing. The Sheriff's report indicates four calls to the establishment in the last year, resulting in one citation written which was later dismissed. There was a bookkeeping error which resulted in a sales tax payment issue in the last year, but this too has been resolved. After three calls for public comment, receiving none, Chairman Lumley closed the public hearing at 11:21 a.m. Brad Basse moved to approve the liquor license renewal application from Violet M. VanBuskirk, dba The Flying Dutchman. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Public Hearing – Wyoming Whiskey Land Use ChangeChairman John P. Lumley declared the public hearing on the Wyoming Whiskey Land Use Change request open at 11:30 a.m. Wyoming Whiskey is requesting a change of use from agricultural to industrial on 2.0 acres of land located on the Mead Ranch for the purposes of constructing two warehouses for storage of bonded and barreled whiskey. Ranch roads will be used for access and the parcel will remain part of the ranch – no subdivision is being requested. County Planner Bo Bowman presented the Commissioners with copies of the county land use plan and score sheets to use in evaluating the land use change request. The land use change request has been forwarded from the Land Use Planning Board with a "do-pass" recommendation. After three calls for public comments, hearing none, Chairman Lumley declared the public hearing closed at 11:48 a.m. Brad Basse moved to accept the recommendation of the Land Use Planning Board and pass the land use change request changing the 2.0 acre parcel from agricultural to industrial use based on a positive score using the land use change scoring sheets. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Discussion: the Planner had suggested two conditions be placed on the land use change – first, that a lighting plan be submitted by the applicant providing a description of how illumination and security would be achieved while minimizing the amount and intensity of light viewed from off-site, and second, the requirement that, should the proposed "barrel-house" activity cease in the future, the land use designation would revert to agricultural and any new industrial use be required to go through a new Land Use Change proposal. The Commissioners were not comfortable with requiring the lighting plan, as that had not been required of similar applications in the past. However, there was support for the reversion of the use to agricultural should the barrel-house operation cease to exist. The motion was amended to reflect that condition. The second concurred. Motion carried. Public Hearing – GK Construction Subdivision and Land Use Change Request Chairman Lumley declared the public hearing on the GK Construction Subdivision and Land Use Change request open at 11:50 a.m. GK Construction is requesting the subdivision of a 35 acre parcel into two
parcels – one 20.5 +/- acre lot and one remainder lot of 14.5+/- acres. Further, GK Construction requests a land use change from agricultural to industrial on the 20.5 acre lot for the purpose of establishing a minor maintenance facility for a mining operation on the premises. The Land Use Planning Board has reviewed the request and, being unable to come to an agreement, has forwarded the request to the Commissioners with no recommendation. Planner Bowman presented the Commissioners with written comments from Linda Reed, the HSC Conservation District and Diane Winter. Oral comments were received from landowners Brett Belden and Linda Reed and the Kirby Irrigation District expressing their opposition to the proposed land use change. Oral comments in favor of the land use change were received from landowner Mel Morgan, GK Construction owner Rick Grandalen, and Wyo-Ben representative Dale Nuttall. Extensive discussion ensued, eventually focusing on disposition of the water rights for the land in question. County Attorney Jerry Williams pointed out that, per land use plan requirements, before approval of the subdivision could be granted, a stated plan for water rights must be in place. This does not appear to have been done at this time. After three calls for further public comment, hearing none, Chairman Lumley declared the public hearing closed at 1:10 p.m. After stating their concerns regarding the completeness of the plan due to a lack of a firm plan regarding the water rights, the Commissioners sent the land use change request back to the Land Use Planning Board for review at their September meeting. Assuming all requirements have been met, the Commissioners will take up the matter again at their October 4th meeting.
Consider FAA Grant Agreement– Dustin Spomer with GDA presented an updated version of the FAA Grant agreement previously approved at the June 7th Commissioners meeting for the Commissioners' review and approval. Brad Basse moved to approve the FAA Grant Agreement for airport development and noise program implementation for the new HSC Airport in an amount not to exceed $3,660.866.00. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Airport Relocation Project FAA Request for Reimbursement #11– Clerk Odde presented FAA Request for Reimbursement #11 for the Commissioners' approval. Mike Baker moved to approve FAA Project 3- 56-0032-03 RFR #11 in the amount of $20,284.00. Brad Basse seconded the motion. Motion carried.

Brad Basse moved to approve WYDOT-Aeronautics Division Project THP-11A-2757 RFR #11 in the amount of $641.00. Mike Baker seconded the motion. Motion carried.
Discuss Engineering Contract Amendment Justification– Mr. Spomer reviewed the justification document for amendments to the Engineering Agreement between Hot Springs County and GDA Engineers for Land Acquisition and Master Design, outlining changes to the original agreement and resultant cost increases. The total cost increase for the amended agreement is $139,000.00. The amended Agreement will be presented for approval at one of the next Commissioner meetings.
Progress Update– Mr. Spomer reported that he and other GDA representatives will be appearing in front of the Wyoming Aeronautics Commission to provide them with an update on the Hot Springs County airport project on September 27, 2011.
Canyon View Circle Right-of-Way Abandonment DiscussionDale and Sue Jackson appeared before the Commissioners for an informal discussion regarding abandonment of a platted right-of-way on property they own in Sable Run Subdivision. The Jacksons own two lots on either side of Canyon View Circle and would like to get rid of this right-of-way and combine the lots into one. At this time, Canyon View Circle is not actually being used or maintained as a road, but more as a driveway to the Jackson's property. As the right-of-way provides access to property owned by Rob Schmidt, the Commissioners suggested that the Jacksons would need to discuss abandonment of the right-of-way with him prior to taking any further action.
