County supervisors approve new county engineer

Ryan Weidemann to begin his duties Monday

The Hamilton County Board of Supervisors approved a contract and agreement for a new county engineer on Tuesday morning.

Ryan Weidemann, of Stratford, will take over as Hamilton County Engineer on Monday.

“Ryan comes to us after several years as an assistant in Webster County,” Hamilton County Supervisor Doug Bailey said.

“I just wanted to point out that Ryan is also a land surveyor so he serves kind of a dual purpose as a professional engineer and a land surveyor, which is a nice combination to have with the county so we’re really excited for that aspect of it,” Hamilton County Supervisor Dan Campidilli added. “He has 12 years of experience with Webster County, so he brings a wealth of knowledge from over there and we’re really excited to have him over here with us and get him on the ground and he’s ready to start moving forward.”

Weidemann was present for the board meeting on Tuesday morning.

“I thank the board and the people of Hamilton County for the opportunity and I’m looking forward on getting started on Monday,” Weidemann said.

In other business, the board also approved a contract for snow removal at three county properties – the courthouse, Shashi Station and the Conference Center. The contract was awarded to Ruba Lawn Care, of Webster City.

“This is at an hourly rate for snow for $85 an hour,” Bailey said. “It also covers salt and sand.”

Bailey said that with the recent snowfall, the county has already been using the services.

The supervisors also passed a resolution to install a stop sign on the new gravel road that enters onto Highway 17 off of the new Boone River Bridge.

A public hearing will be held at 1 p.m. on Dec. 10 at the county supervisors’ office in regards to the establishment of Drainage Ditch #314 Hill.
