The Stutsman County Commission unanimously approved allowing the maintenance supervisor to get bids for carpet and other materials at the North Dakota State University Extension Service office.

Jim Fettig, maintenance supervisor, said he wanted to get permission to get bids and carpets done right away because of the availability of carpet and rising prices for materials.

He said he wants to get as much work done, including painting offices, installing new carpet and replacing ceiling tiles with the allowed budget of $20,000.

The Stutsman County Park Board unanimously approved allowing Dale Marks’ family to mow Ypsilanti Park for $600 total during the upcoming summer.

Karl Berghe, Stutsman County Park superintendent, said the other options are to let the grass grow or having county employees drive to Ypsilanti to mow the park. Mark Klose, chair of the commission, questioned if county employees can even mow the park for $600 for the entire summer.

In other business, the park board was updated on snow-removal equipment. Berghe said he will add a snowblower that can attach to a county skidsteer on the budget for 2023. He said the current cost of a snowblower is about $7,600.
