Highway Superintendent Barta met with the Board on the following: 1. Draft of letter to be sent to townships when the Board receives complaints due to lack of township road maintenance and a draft of a road maintenance log.  As the County Board allocates a portion of the highway allocation funds to the townships, the Board will be requiring all of the township boards to keep a road maintenance log and the reports are to be turned into the Knox County Board on a quarterly basis; 2. Supr. Schlote had received a complaint on a Dowling Township road that needs to be graded and graveled.  Discussion was held on the Dowling Township balance of County/Township Allocation funds, noting the road is neither a mail route or bus route, and gravel needed now and graded could be done later; 3. Long-time Road employee Larry Cross will be retiring June 1, 2017 so a memo will be sent to road employees to see if someone in-house would want to transfer into the Creighton shed; 4. Bridge meeting in Lincoln on May 4; 5. Engineering costs are up so that line item in the budget is over; 6. A notice had been placed in the papers stating that planting or fencing a road right- of-way is prohibited.  A township board said that someone is planting in the right-of-way of a minimum maintenance road and this member questioned what the recourse is.  The Board said that the township board should document the issue and try to handle the matter first and then come to the County Board if necessary; 7. Removing sand and gravel from behind the courthouse and dirt will be placed and the area seeded to grass; 8. Discussed possible undermining of a culvert.  Work will begin next week on the area; 9. Discussed purchasing clay; 10. A bigger radiator is being placed on the pull-type broom; 11. Truck repairs; 12. The Board went into executive session at 10:26 a.m. so as to protect the reputation of an individual while discussing personnel; 13. The Board closed the executive session at 10:33 a.m. that was held so as to protect the reputation of an individual while discussing personnel.
At 10:34 a.m., Chairman Sokol, Jr. opened the advertised public hearing for the reclassification from local roads to minimum maintenance on 3.25 miles in Herrick Township and Frankfort Township.  Present were Herrick Township Board member Rick Stewart, Frankfort Township Board members Duane Guenther and Francis Steffen, and landowners Burl, Lois Ann and Dean Mormann.  Chairman Sokol, Jr. closed the open public hearing at 10:50 a.m.  The Board took no action on the reclassification of the 3.25 miles of roads in Herrick and Frankfort Townships at this time so that the Herrick Township Board can work on portions of 545 Way/896 RD and a public hearing will be held on Thursday, November 9, 2017 for the reclassification from local roads to minimum maintenance of 3.25 miles being portions of 897 and 896 Roads, 545 Way and 546 Avenue.
Discussion was held on notifying landowners when a public hearing is held for reclassification of roads.  It is not required to send notice nor publish a notice but only needs to be an agenda item.  As a courtesy, Knox County holds a public hearing and notice of such is published in the legal papers and the paper where the reclassification is.  Suggestion was that a letter be sent to the adjoining landowners of the proposed roads to be reclassified.
The Board approved Chad Paulsen Construction of Norfolk NE for repairs and brick replacement on the damaged upper parapet wall on the north side of the Courthouse and bracketing/bracing of the communication tower in the amount of $145,000.

The BIA inspection the Knox County Jail and waiting for written approval.
