The Stutsman County Park Board Tuesday extended the deadline for Jamestown Reservoir lease holders to submit inspection requests on septic systems to Aug. 7, the date of the next Park Board meeting. Jim Michael, director of environmental health, said 12 cabin owners haven't responded to letters requiring them to submit those forms to his office at Central Valley Health District. The commission will send certified letters to those individuals.
Jack Uehran, who holds the lease for the Spiritwood Lake campgrounds, reported continuing disagreements with the city of Spiritwood Lake. At the June 5 meeting of the Park Board, a committee was formed to discuss transferring the lease from Uehran to the Park Board, but an agreement hasn't been reached.
"Lets get this sale closed in the next few months and then we won't have to deal with all this small stuff," said Fritz Fremgen, county state's attorney.
Dennis Lorenz, county park superintendent, said people have been driving golf carts recklessly through the campground at Pelican Point. Board members suggested the camp management print a set of regulations on the use of off-road vehicles on the grounds.
Board members approved a request by Lorenz to purchase a $29,000 tractor and loader.
Carol Kelley of Grand Forks, whose family has owned property on Spiritwood Lake for more than 60 years, asked for an easement to build a new home partially on county property. They recently had the area surveyed and found their property doesn't extend to the road, as they had believed.
The board will look into the legality of the request before making a decision.
