Mike Jackson and Aaron Seehafer, Rio Verde Engineering, discussed bike path maintenance with the Board. Seehafer informed the Board the county has 30.5 miles of bike path with most of them in fair to good condition, but maintenance is necessary to avoid more serious problems.  He recommended the Board develop a maintenance agreement with the towns.  Chairman White requested the County Administrator, Jeness Saxton, work with Rio Verde and the County Attorney’s office on the recommended agreements.

Cassie Crumpton, Treatment Court, updated the Board on department activities.  She also requested permission to start a team to see what a behavior wellness program for county employees would look like.  Commissioner Noble directed Crumpton to work with HR and come back to the Board with recommendations.
