9:09 AMYou provided all thatpaperwork for them, and there'stoo short of time to --
Well, there's nothing else on the agenda to consume your time. I know that. It's all there. And certainly you know how to get ahold of us if you have anyquestions. We have a transportationcommittee next week, so we'll be reviewing any comments wereceived and looking at that andprobably firming that up for thepresentation to the public in october, if that's what youchoose.
Do we have to set the publichearing today?
I think that would beappropriate if you'recomfortable with that.it gives us time certainly next week and up until october.
We need a motion for that?>> October 24th and 9 o'clock iswhat we had looked at.
Okay.>> so moved.>> i've got a motion bycommissioner miller.

9:09 AMAll?i guess he'll be back from hisbig vacation. So I said I shouldn't publicize that, but I did. But anyhow, all those in favorof the motion on the floor,signify by saying aye.
9:10 AMAye.>> opposed, same sign.motion carried.>> thank you. last item for your considerationis adopting resolution 17-043. That's a transportation economicdevelopment infrastructure program application. So deed has an opportunity forus to solicit for funding. We're putting together an application for $500,000 grantto help us offset costs ofreconstructing county road 76 inthe year 2019. That grant is due this friday. I want to thank the city offaribault and thank sarah andkathy. They've been working hard tosolicit input from localbusinesses in the northindustrial park and the northern part of faribault. We also received a letter ofcommitment from troy zabinskiand matt khan where they are willing to contribute $50,000 incash out of their bottom line tohelp us secure a grant andultimately deliver a project that is north of there, northof their corporate headquarters. So great opportunity for us,great willingness on their part to help us gain a leg up on thecompetition. There's only $4. 2 million, ithink, in this grant pool for statewide. And we're asking for half amillion. Keep our fingers crossed and wish us luck. This resolution's required sothe board can support thatapplication.

A couple items for you today.the first is, as you know, weselected a local jurisdictionfor the state buffer requirements for enforcement ofthose requirements. And with that, then the nextstep is rice county adopting a local ordinance. The state did come out with amodel ordinance, and trent waskind enough to draft that into the rice county format with someminor changes to that. We have sent it to the state forreview. But in the meantime, we wouldlike the board to set the publichearing in front of the planningcommission for October 5th at 7:05 p.m.
