8:55 AMBut there are still olderhistorical records that aren'tsaved.
Like microfilm?
Before the microfilm.>> okay, thanks.>> any other discussion?hearing none, all those in favor of the motion on the floor,signify by saying aye.
Aye.>> opposed, same sign. motion carried.than you very much.
Thank you.>> okay, auditor/treasurer with fran windschitl.
Good morning.i just have three items.the first item is i'm seeking adoption of resolution 17-042,and that's the approval toremove property from theforfeited sale list -- that's the 1004 central avenue property-- and in order to sell it tothe rice county hra for anauthorized pubic purpose. And the purpose was to transferthat to the hra.
8:56 AMResolution 17-042.>> second.

8:56 AMAll?hearing none, all those in favorof the motion on the floor,signify by saying aye.
Aye.>> opposed, same sign.motion carried.>> next item, i'm seeking your approval of adoption ofresolution 17-041, and that's aresolution for levying specialassessments on various rice county drainage systems. The terms of this would be -- wewould try to send out noticesthis week and allow people to pay balances up to -- I believeit's December 1st -- withoutinterest. And if it's under $100, we would bill. If they don't pay by thedecember 1st date, we would billthat in entirety if it's over $100, and we would spread it outover 5 years to make itaffordable. And the interest rate would be 3%. So i'm seeking approval forresolution 17-041 and wouldanswer any questions. And most of this is levies toreplenish ditch funds formaintenance, for cleanouts, foradministrative costs, for some of the redeterminations thatwe've done, also on countyditch 9, 30, and 31. We will be sending out a check shortly before we send outthis notice of the damages thatwere due to landowners for thoseredetermination projects. So they should get a check, andthen they'll get a bill from usthe same week.
8:58 AMWell, it's better to give them the check first and thenbill, rather than the other wayaround. We've been through that scenario before.
Go ahead, commissionerdocken.>> well, and the purpose of that is obviously so that they canknow that they can pay it in itsentirety, so they would beoffsetting any kind of income is kind of the deal. I think that that was a requesta while ago, that you don't haveto pay tax on it this one year, and then come around and pay theassessment the next year. Why not be able to do it both inthe same year? So it made a lot of sense to doit that way.
Thank you.>> anyone else?
I'll make a motion to approveresolution 17-041.>> second.>> i've got a motion by Commissioner Miller and a secondby Commissioner Docken. Any other discussion on thishere?

8:59 AMHearing none, all those in favorof the motion signify by sayingaye.
Opposed, same sign.>> motion carried.>> no.anybody that's opposed to this motion?hearing none, all those in favorof the motion signify by sayingaye.
Aye.>> oh, opposed, same sign.yeah, we already got it.everything fell into place. motion carries.okay.
Next item, i'm seeking yourapproval of setting a public hearing for the redeterminationof benefits and combining someof the accounting records oncounty ditch 25 for October 10th at 9:00 a. M. And we will send out therequired notifications afterthis action is granted.
