COUNTY COMMISSIONERS AND STATE DEPARTMENT OF HIGHWAYS PLAN JOINT MEETING The following letter has been received:
Utah State Department of Highways State Office Building Salt Lake City 14, Utah
July 8, 1966
Mr. K. S. Summers
San Juan County Commission
c/o Ada Palmer
County Clerk & Auditor
Dear Mr. Summers:
You will recall that the Transportation & Research Section of the Utah State Department of Highways, in coop-eration with the U. S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Public Roads, reinventoried all the roads in San Juan County in 1965. We have now placed all of this information on a base map and prints are being reviewed by the Bureau of Public Roads before the maps are published.
As has been our policy in the past, while we are waiting for the review by the Washington office of the Bureau of Public Roads, we would like the San Juan County officials that may be interested, to review the map before its release for publication. For this purpose we are sending you a tentative copy of the San Juan County Map, (scale I" equals 1 mile) under separate cover. Please feel free to make any notations you see fit on the map sheets. In meeting with officials of other counties we have often found that they like to discuss such items as road jurisdiction, road surface types, city limits lines, etc.
After your review, we would appreciate being notified of an acceptable date when the San Juan County Commission, and others interested would be able to meet with representatives of this department to discuss the map in line with your comments. If possible, we would like to meet with you at your next Commission meeting, or at a time that would be convenient for you.
After the above mentioned meeting, we would like to obtain a statement from your Commission that the map, as corrected, has been reviewed and found acceptable by the County Commission. After receiving this statement from your Commission and approval from the Bureau of Public Roads, the map will be reduced to a scale of 1" equals 2 miles, and a three-year supply of the maps printed.
Mileage as determined from this map will reflect your corrected County "B" mileage, and these mileages will be used in your Class "B" allocation; therefore, it is very important that any ommission or correction you may desire be obtained at this time.
We have enjoyed working with the officials of San Juan County in the accomplishment of this mapping program and will look forward to meeting with you as soon as you have had sufficient time to review the map.
Very truly yours,
B. Dale Burningham Chief Research Engineer
The Clerk was directed to write to Mr. B. Dale Burningham, Chief Research Engineer, that the Commissioners desire to meet with the State Department of Highways on July 25th, in order to allow sufficient time to re-view the map and make the necessary changes.

In Reply Refer to- SLC-600
Mr. K. S. Summers, Chairman Board of County Commissioners San Juan County Monticello, Utah
Dear Mr. Summers:
On June 30, 1966, Mr. Herman M. Maxwell, Chief, Airports Branch, and Mr. Paul A. Larson, Civil Engineer, accompanied by Mr. Steven Eager of Eager-Northern Electric Company, inspected construction progress at the San Juan County Airport, Monticello, Utah under Federal-aid Airport Project No. 9-42-037-C604.
In general, the Project is progressing satisfactorily; however, there are two items which were noted that warrent further discussion. It was noted in the course of this inspection that the contractor had stock-piled a quantity of 2/0 Type TW cable for use in grounding the beacon tower. This particular type of cable is not in accordance with the National Electric Code for this purpose. It is our recommendation that the cable called for in the Specifications be used.
It was also noted that your resident inspector was not on the job site during the course of this inspection. As you may be aware, a full-time resident engineer and/or inspector should be provided at all times the con-tractor is working to insure that the terms of his contract with San Juan County are being followed. The Fed-eral Aviation Agency cannot participate in the cost of construction not performed in strict accordance with the approved Project Plans and Specifications.
We also have completed a review of the contractor's equipment list as received in this office on June 26,
1966. Based on the information provided, it has been determined that the marker lights listed under Items 1
and 2 on the above list are approved units. The catalog number given for the taxiway guidance signs, contained
in Item 3, is not contained on the approved list of airport lighting equipment. The remaining items of equip-ment are contained in the approved list of airport lighting equipment.
The above mentioned list of approved airport lighting equipment is set forth in FAA Advisory Circular 150/ 5345-1, "Approved Airport Lighting Equipment". At such time as the above taxiway guidance signs are received on the job site, it is requested that you provide this office with the manufacturer's catalog number so that we may determine if the signs are contained in the above referenced Advisory Circular.
If you have any questions concerning the above discussed matters, please contact Mr. Herman M. Maxwell, Chief, Airports Branch of my office.
Sincerely yours, D. R. Newton
for Vaughan M. Clayton Area Manager

ESTIMATE ON COST OF FENCE AT CARLSON RESIDENCE
An estimate of cost of erection of a fence at the Carlson residence has been submitted by Mr. Carlson. Mr. Carlson had requested that San Juan County furnish the materials and he would do the work of construction of a fence at the county owned home in which Mr. Carlson is residing. The cost of a pine fence which would have to be painted would be $120.00 and a redwood fence would cost $170 for materials.

Be it enacted by the Legislation of the State of Utah:
Section 1. Section 35-4-8.5 is enacted to read:
35-4-8.5 (a) Notwithstanding other provisions of this act the governing board of any county, town or political subdivision of the state of Utah may by resolution of the majority of its members elect to become an employer subject to this act for not less than 2 calendar years.
(b) Upon filing a certified copy of such resolution with the commission, such county, city, town or po-litical subdivision shall become an employer subject to the same extent as all other employers, as of the date stated in such approval and shall cease to be subject hereto as of January 1 of any calendar year sub-sequent to such 2 calendar years if, at least 30 days prior to such January 1, it has filed with the Commis-sion a written notice to that effect; provided, however, that when such electing county, city, town or polit-ical subdivision fails to file contribution reports or pay contributions due within two calendar months after they become due, the commission may, on its own motion after due notice, terminate coverage of such employer on or after the first day of the calendar quarter immediately following the calendar quarter with respect
to which such contribution reports or payments were due and not paid.
(c) In lieu of contributions such electing county, city, town or political subdivision shall be obliga-ted to pay into the unemployment compensation fund, in accordance with regulations of the commission, an amount equivalent to the amount of benefits paid to individuals on the basis of base period earnings in the employ
of such county, city, town or political subdivision.
(d) During the period of the elective coverage the term "employment" shall include an individual's entire service performed for wages for such county, city, town or political subdivision, except that the term "unem-ployment" shall not include services performed by: elective officials; professional employees employed on a part time, irregular or fee basis; recipients of charitable aid who perform work for the employer which is incidental to, or in return for, the aid conferred and not under any express contract of hire; recipients of payments pursuant to the federal economic opportunity act or similar federal or state legislation; teachers who customarily engage in teaching; students while enrolled in school, or during school vacations; and each employee employed on a temporary basis for a period which does not exceed ninety days in a calendar year.
It was unanimously agreed that San Juan County will not participate in unemployment compensations. COUNTY TO ENTER INTO SERVICE AGREEMENT WITH SEVIER SCHOOL & OFFICE SUPPLY FOR PHOTOSTATIC EQUIPMENT
The County Clerk presented material from the Sevier School & Office Supply on a proposal for servicing the Smith Corona-Marchant photostatic machine in the Sheriff's office. The servicing proposal will include three service calls per year with complete cleaning and servicing for the sum of $95.00 per year. Any emergency calls would be extra.
A motion was made by Commissioner Hazleton that San Juan County enter into a servicing agreement with Sevier School & Office Supply for servicing the SC-M photostatic machine. The motion was seconded by Commissioner Bailey, and carried unanimously.
