The Le Sueur County Board of Commissioners welcomed a new member of the human services staff as part of a brief agenda for its regular meeting held Tuesday, Sept. 16 at the courthouse in Le Center.

Human Services Director Sue Rynda introduced Jenni Christensen during her monthly report to the board. Jenni's title is human services program assistant/community support person.

Other items acted on or discussed at Tuesday's meeting:

• Veterans Service Officer Jim Golgart received permission to attend the national conference of the executive board of the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers (NACVSO) in San Diego, CA, January 16-22, 2009. Golgart serves as treasurer for the national board. He also informed the board he is applying for a grant to pay expenses for all Minnesota Veterans Service Officers attending a six-day national conference of NACVSO to be held in Minnesota in June 2010. He said the officers receive certification at this conference. Golgart will serve as chairman of the conference and the county would serve as fiscal agent of the grant funds. The grant application is for $228,000.

• County Auditor Ron Germscheid presented information on historical work to be completed at the Ottawa Town Hall, using the annual UNIMIN contribution. The UNIMIN corporation makes a donation of $7,500 each year to the Ottawa Historical Association, since it has considerable mining operations in that area. The county board approved the use of funds.

• The board authorized final payment of $10,000 to Barnett Brothers Inc. for work on the CSAH 29-County Road 144 project south of New Prague, on recommendation of County Engineer Darrell Pettis. The engineer also submitted 2008 municipal maintenance agreements for cities within Le Sueur County, which were approved.

• The commissioners approved health insurance rates for county employees.

• Jail Administrator Larry Sycks informed the board of a meeting with a representative from Federal Engineering who has been hired by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety to do a study of the entire county radio system. The study will result in three options and a 10-year cost analysis to meet the FCC mandates by the year 2013. The meeting will be held Wednesday, Oct. 1 in the Environmental Services Building in Le Center. All Le Sueur County radio system users have been invited.
