County discusses storage building

Staff writer

County commissioners spent part of their meeting Monday discussing, but making no decision on, constructing a storage building southeast of the jail.

The long-discussed storage building would be on property the county already owns.

Commissioner Randy Dallke said the proposed 80-by-60 feet building was needed for storage.

“We’ve got to do something, guys, if we’ve got to store our equipment,” he told the other commissioners.

He said if the building were situated properly, there would be space to add onto it later.

County counselor Brad Jantz presented commissioners a template for a rental agreement for the county lake hall.

The three-page agreement includes an application form that would list the name, date, hours, and type of event; sets terms for the rental, prohibit smoking, alcohol, profanity, fighting, gambling, and weapons on the premises; and includes a cleanup checkout that requires renters to remove all decorations, wipe tables and chairs, replace them to their original place, remove all trash, mop the floor, straighten bathrooms, set heating and air conditioning to the noted temperatures, and lock all doors and windows. Trash in the parking lot and around the entrances must be picked up.

After commissioners approved the proposed lake hall rental contract, commissioner Kent Becker asked whether the commission should develop a comprehensive plan for the lake and work on issues one at a time.

Jantz said he had not yet prepared regulations for other rentals at the lake.
