County approves Seasons contract

By Staff | Apr 16, 2008

The Emmet County Board of Supervisors Tuesday approved a contract for an estimated $92,600 for mental health services with Seasons Center.

In presenting the new contract, County Mental Health Coordinator Dorothy Christensen said there were no changes from the current year. The new contract would begin July 1 and include an addendum in which specific services rendered would be identified.

In other business coming before the board, the supervisors approved utility permits for Long Lines in the Riverside Hills area and for Ringsted Telephone in six locations.

In other business the supervisors discussed:

n A contract with County Engineer Roger Patocka for the coming year with a 3.5 percent salary increase, the same as other county officers.

n Patocka also updated the board on a transmission line Corn Belt Power was installing from southwest of Gruver to Maple Hill. Patocka said crews were working on cross-Ts, frost heaves, blading, repairing equipment, and that 100 tons of salt had been delivered in anticipation of a price increase by next winter.

n Supervisor Randy Beaver noted that at last week’s meeting, he said he wanted each of six operators to apply 300 tons of gravel per mile on 25 miles of gravel road for 150 miles total, not 25 miles total as stated in the Daily News.
