On a motion by Mattson, second by Russek, all voted to approve the June Revenue/Expenditure Reports as presented.
On a motion by Mattson, second by Russek, all voted to approve a plat, "HILLSIDE VIEW," as submitted by Jeffrey S. Markwardt, aka Jeff S. Markwardt and Jamie J. Markwardt, aka Jamie J. Kaskinen, husband and wife, fee owners, and the State Bank of Kimball, a Minnesota Corporation and mortgagee of the following described property: Lots 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11, Block 7, SCENIC SHORES, according to the recorded plat thereof; with all outstanding taxes having been paid; there is no park dedication fee or new roads, as this is a replat; and the title opinion prepared by Timothy Young, esq., has been reviewed by Thomas C. Zins, Assistant Wright County Attorney, who finds that the plat is ready for recording.
Gruber requested approval to convey four tax-forfeit parcels to the City of Monticello. Three lie in the Meadow Oaks Addition and the fourth is an alley near Flicker's TV and Appliance. The PID numbers are: #155-059-004010, 155-010-035042, 155-059-000010, 155-059-000020. The transfers should have taken place when the plat was recorded. Mattson moved to approve the conveyance, seconded by Sawatzke. The City retains ownership of the parcels until they are sold, at which time they must be conveyed back to the State. The motion carried 5-0.
On a motion by Mattson, second by Sawatzke, all voted to schedule a Communications Committee meeting for 8-27-01 at 9:00 A.M. The agenda items will include adding an additional trunk to the phone switch and the phone system study performed by Schald & Associates.
Eichelberg moved to authorize Gruber to work on a beaver problem in County Ditch 31, Woodland Township. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried unanimously.
Gruber referenced an AMC Legislative Update which provided an article on property taxes. He said that Truth In Taxation Notices do not have to be sent to each property owner and that Truth In Taxation public hearings do not have to be held. The cost to print and mail the notices was estimated at $14,000 in 1999 and $15,000 in 2000. The positive thing about mailing the notices is that some new property owners would be alerted to the fact that they had not filed for homestead. However, there is an abatement process to handle these situations. The State did not designate funding for reprogramming to calculate taxes for next year. Eichelberg moved to direct Gruber to send a letter to the Tax Division requesting a waiver for sending Truth In Taxation notices, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.
The claims listing was reviewed. Mattson referenced page 1, AMC ($294.00). Jude responded this is for a Leadership Summit being held on 8-15-01 which Eichelberg and Jude will attend. Mattson questioned the claim on page 15, Buffalo Hospital ($1503.95). His question related to what expenditures the County has over and above the contract and whether the claims are checked by the County. Sawatzke moved to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit, noting that the Coordinator is directed to research the contract with Buffalo Hospital. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 5-0.
Brad Wozney, SWCD, said a 2002/2003 Challenge Grant was received for the Wright County Cooperative Lake Monitoring Program in the amount of $8,440. Matching funds (1:1) will come from existing water management monies. The SWCD cannot be the direct conduit for the grant so the request is for the County to act in this capacity. In response to Russek, Wozney stated that monitoring data obtained on the Crow River or water that flows there will be given to Jennifer Gieseke, CROW Coordinator, so there will be no duplication of monitoring efforts. Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #01-56 accepting the 2002/2003 Lake Challenge Grant, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
A Personnel Committee Meeting was held on 7-25-01. Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0:
Performance Appraisal, Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator. Based on the review of three performance appraisals submitted the Committee recommends an overall rating of "Exceptional."
Discuss Request For Office Ass't. Position, Auditor/Treas. Dept./Transfer Of Passports From Court Administration. The Committee discussed Lavonn Nordeen's interest in having passports transferred to another County Department. By law, Court Administration is not mandated to provide this service and given their workload, Lavonn would like to see this service transferred to another Department. She initially discussed this with Doug Gruber, who would like to hire another staff person for the License Division and consequently was open to this possibility. Recommendation: Approve an additional staff person for the License Division Auditor/Treasurer's Department and transfer responsibility for preparing passports to the License Division effective October 1, 2001.
Discuss Home Health Aide Coord. Position. Public Health would like to hire a replacement for the current Home Health Aide Coordinator position which will be vacated at the end of August due to a retirement. At the same time Public Health is changing from hiring additional Home Health Aides to contracting for these services since the community need is oriented more towards family services. The existing Home Health Aid Coordinator job description calls for an LPN, however it was determined that this is not needed for the position. An updated job description will be provided to Personnel for review. Recommendation: Lay this issue over for two weeks while the job description is being reviewed. Sawatzke would like to discuss further service delivery issues involving contract providers and Human Service employees.
A Personnel Committee Meeting was held on 8-2-01. At today's meeting, Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0. It was noted that discussions will continue on the Jail staffing issue.
School Resource Officer, Monticello Schools. Monticello School District has budgeted for a School Resource Officer for the upcoming school year. It is addressed in the Sheriff Department budget request for 2002, but an officer needs to be hired now to accommodate their request. The projected revenue is $37,000, based on a $26.39 per hour rate. An additional SRO may be needed if Monticello is successful in receiving a grant they have submitted. Miller indicated that some other school districts are reviewing the benefits of having an officer available in their schools. Recommendation: Authorize the filling of a School Resource Officer position for this Fall. A contract or memorandum of understanding needs to be developed to formalize the agreement with the school districts.
Jail Inspection Report. Thompson stated that based on the staffing plan prepared by the Jail Administrator and the shift relief factor the facility should have 40 full-time Correction Officers, not including supervisors. Thus, the facility is currently operating seven staff positions short. Also, staffing is not adequate to provide for all the clerical functions that are necessary to effectively operate the facility. Discussion centered on the data and DOC jail standards. Jail Administrative staff were not available so they could not be questioned as to how they arrived at their staffing level needs. Recommendation: Review the Jail staffing plan and shift relief calculations with Torfin, and schedule another Committee meeting after this has been accomplished.
Janis Amatuzio, Wright County Coroner, distributed and provided an overview of the 2000 Report Of The Coroner. There were 207 total deaths as follows: Natural (178); Accident (16); Suicide (7); Homicide (2) and Undetermined (4). Two of the undetermined deaths were nonhuman bones. One was portions of a human skull deceased more than 50 years ago found while excavating an old homestead occupied between 1860 and 1900. The bones were released to the State Archeologist. The fourth case involved an infant who had autopsy findings suggestive of a metabolic disorder who was co-sleeping. Of the natural deaths, 45 involved hospice patients. Amatuzio said there were 0 deaths from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. She attributed this to placing infants on their backs while sleeping and because of using tighter bed clothing. Amatuzio also noted that none of the accidental deaths involving motor vehicles related to use of cell phones, computers, etc. The majority of crashes were when roadways were dry. The safest time of day to travel in Wright County is between 4:00 p.m. and 12:00 a.m. More accidents occur between 12:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m. The most dangerous day to travel is Wednesday. Nationally, the male to female suicidal rate is 10:1; in Wright County it is 6:1. There were 102 cremation approvals. Of these, 62 were of natural deaths referred by funeral homes and the remaining were where the family elected cremation. There were 41 autopsies performed. Amatuzio said she appreciated being Coroner and the cooperation she has received from law enforcement. She said Sheriff Miller and former Sheriff Hozempa have been exemplary in making the whole process work.
Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, said that approximately one month ago, a public hearing was held for the purpose of making the Wright County Recorder an appointed position. This action was based upon special legislation passed by the MN Legislature this year. The next step in the process is to adopt a resolution of intent which will be published for two weeks. The Board would accept public comment. Then the Board would adopt another resolution. After the second publication, the public could petition for a referendum which requires a 30-day window. Russek moved to adopt Resolution # 01-57, intent to make the Wright County Recorder an appointed position. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
On a motion by Russek, second by Sawatzke, all voted to hear Tobacco Licensing Appeals on 8-28-01 at 1:30 P.M. The Board will recess their County Board meeting and reconvene 1:30 P.M. There are five retailers who have appealed notice of violation.
A Ways & Means Committee Meeting was held on 7-25-01:
Discuss Request From Assessor To Charge A Fee For Multiple Property Requests. Due to the increasing number of requests for property data and the increase in staff hours required to respond to these requests, the Assessor's Department would like to implement the following fees for requests that do not originate from the property owner. Property inquiries ($3.00 per service/parcel); Tax Estimates ($5.00 per service/parcel); Tax Increment Financing Projects ($100.00 min. up to 2 hrs, $40.00/hr thereafter); Archival Search ($15.00 min. up to 1hr, $10.00/hr thereafter). The County Board will be asked at the August 7 meeting to set a public hearing date to proceed with implementation of the above fees for services. Jerry Kritzeck will prepare a notice for distribution to any affected parties that have made requests of the Assessor's Department in the past informing them of this change in policy.
At today's meeting, Gruber stated that these requests are not isolated to the Assessor's Office. He anticipated that more calls may be received by other departments, such as the Auditor/Treasurer's, if these service fees are adopted. He felt the issue had to be looked at on a larger scale as some of the information used by departments is interchangeable. It was felt that another avenue to be researched would be to see if some of the information could be accessed via the Internet. Mattson moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Russek. The motion and second were amended to include advertising the proposed fees for two weeks and set the public hearing for 9-4-01 at 9:30 A.M. The motion carried 5-0.
Louis Marshall and Ann Stumpf addressed the Board on their properties. Several years ago, the property owner between their parcels was given a permit to build a home. They voiced frustration due to lack of the property owner following stipulations set forth by Planning & Zoning, the lack of completing things in an expedient manner, and the impacts on their properties which have resulted. These include such things as not following setbacks, problems with drain tiles and code violations. Stumpf said she had contacted Planning & Zoning many times to assist with correcting the situation. Even though staff has been in contact with the landowner, she did not feel issues were being resolved. Jude stated that the Board of Adjustment gave the individual the right to build on a bluff area. There were existing buildings with a non-conforming sewer system. The permit was given contingent upon an acceptable sewer system. A nonstandard system was installed over a year ago. Jude said it is a narrow, steep lot and the owner has not followed the rules to get things done and in a timely manner. The property owner has acted as his own general contractor. Water flows through the basement into the sewer. The sewer has been excavated once. He said retaining wall problems should have been corrected at that time but were not. Jude said Stumpf and Marshall would like a review of County ordinances or policies so this does not happen to anyone else. Pictures of the area were reviewed. In a letter addressed to the County Board, both Stumpf and Marshall request that problems with erosion and drainage be corrected to their satisfaction before the County issues a Final Right of Occupancy Permit.
Tom Salkowski, Planning & Zoning Administrator, responded that his office did not have the capability to resolve what he deemed as a two-year feud between neighbors. He did not disagree with some of the accusations but said that both sides of the issue should be heard. He said there has been a problem since the permit was issued two years ago. He said it was probably a lot which should never have built upon, which is the case with a number of 50'-60' lots. If the property had been declared unbuildable, he thought litigation would have resulted. Salkowski felt that issues could have been resolved if the parties involved would have worked together. When the threat of litigation from Marshall was suggested, Salkowski said cooperation from his office backed down. He said the Planning & Zoning Office has spent ten times as much time on this project compared to others in the County but has been accused of not doing anything. A number of conditions were imposed on the project that were above what the BOA had required. He felt the Board needed to hear from both parties and view the area before making a decision. In response to what recourse the property owners had, Salkowski suggested hiring an attorney if property was being damaged and contacting the Sheriff for trespassing issues. Salkowski felt that the accusations of violating laws may not be substantiated. He understood that the work by the lake has been done fairly well. He was frustrated that the County is being blamed for the problems. He said Planning & Zoning's options are to either shut the project down and let the property erode or do the best they can to see that the project is finished. The consensus of the Board was that they should set a time to view the property and that staff from Planning & Zoning should be consulted for input. Louis and Stumpf requested that they be notified of the date of the review so they can be present.
Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, presented the Transportation Committee Of The Whole (TCOTW) minutes of 7-16-01 for approval. At today's Board meeting, Russek moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0. A summary of the minutes and discussion at today's meeting follows:
Review of Safety Audit Report for CSAH 35/Bison Boulevard (Presentation by Loren Hill & Dan Brannan, Mn/DOT): An independent study was performed. Short and long range alternatives for traffic control improvements at CSAH 35/Bison Boulevard and CSAH 35 and CR 134 were presented. At the TCOTW meeting, Nick Miller, Buffalo High School, requested a set of slides to better educate students. He will attempt to resolve parking issues on Dague Avenue and across from Bison Boulevard. Signage was also discussed. Miller expressed appreciation for the study and the ability to now provide answers for parents/students. A meeting with the School group and County officials may be set up in the future. At today's County Board meeting, Fingalson said the recommendation is that the intersection does not meet warrants for a traffic signal but instead some type of right-of-way device. The next step is to meet with the school group which has been scheduled for 8-8-01. Signing and striping issues will be changes which can be made, but other suggestions involve financial obligations. Mattson was concerned with speed issues, stating he felt speeds should be lowered. He did not agree with the speed criteria for setting speed limits.
Right-of-Way Issue along CSAH 38 (Darrell Kelly Concern): In 1965 a segment of existing CSAH 38 was realigned. Before realignment, the Kelly property line was the same as the centerline of CSAH 38. The shift of CSAH 38 to the south separated a piece of land on the north side of the highway from the remaining portion on the south side. The County bought additional easement south of the old roadbed and did not vacate any portion of the old easement that lay to the north of the new piece of easement. This was done to prevent land locking. It was common practice in 1965 not to record easement documents. In order for two driveways on the north side of the highway to have access, the driveways were continued over the original road easement. The Kelly's purchased the land in 1975 and the easement has still not been recorded. The request by Kelly is to have the easement recorded. The Attorney's Office indicated that the original easement cannot be recorded as it was not notarized. Fingalson sent correspondence to the Kelly's on 6-15-01 relating to an agreement. The Committee recommendation was to wait for a written response from the Kelly's so that the County Board can decide what solution is feasible and legal. At today's Board meeting, the Board stated they had received a response from the Kelly's. This will be referred to a future TCOTW meeting.
Drainage Easement Issue Along CSAH 6: In 1988, the County removed an old cattle pass from under a highway, connected to property owned by Ted Nichols. A new 48" culvert was placed under the road and this had a catch basin which took surface water. The catch basin was installed 17' north of the easement. With permission from the County, the Gruenhagen field tile was directed into this catch basin and was also off the easement. In 2000, Gruenhagen replaced old tiles which is when the easement problem was discovered. Nichols owns the property on which the tile line is located and has objections to its repair. The Highway Department has attempted to obtain an easement at the fair market value but Nichols has concerns with environmental aspects. The TCOTW recommendation is to have Chuck Davis, Planning & Zoning, conduct a water quality test on the runoff that comes through the Gruenhagen drain tile and determine the source and the quality. This should be reported back to the TCOTW.
Road Access To Cokato Truck Station: City of Cokato representatives were present to request assistance for repair to Omer Avenue, located next to the County Truck Station. Heavy traffic from County trucks and other vehicles has caused the road to break up. The City is asking for the County to pay for blacktopping about 200 feet of road, up to the entrance of the shop. There is about 500-600 feet needing repair. Estimated cost of repair is $12,000 not including the culvert. Approximate cost for total replacement is $20,000. The trucks were originally going to access right onto CSAH 4. The City had concerns with impacts on their driveway and underground power lines. It was recalled that the agreement with the City called for this easement from the shop to CSAH 4 specifically so that the County wouldn't have to deal with coming off a road belonging to someone else. Steve Meyer, Highway, said the County tried to work with the City on joint entrances. The County trucks utilized Omer Avenue instead but didn't anticipate the damage to the road. Meyer felt there may not have been good support under the road causing it to break up. Discussion involved engineering and cost sharing. The TCOTW recommendation was for the County Commissioners to do a site inspection of this road and set another meeting time and date with the City to discuss possible options. At today's County Board meeting, Fingalson said that Omer Avenue is owned by the Township but maintained by the City and is used as a haul road by Mathowitz Construction. Fingalson said the largest problem is that the road is not solid enough to accomodate traffic. Fingalson said the report completed by the consulting engineer for the City recommended removing much of the roadway and replacing it with 10" of Class 5 and 4" of bituminous, which would be expensive. Mattson said he viewed this area last winter and felt the County had caused damage to the road. Upon his request, fill was brought in. He felt the Highway Department should also have discussed with the TCOTW the change in directly accessing CSAH 4 to using Omer Avenue. It was felt that cost estimates to repair Omer Avenue should be obtained as well as accessing CSAH 4 directly, and that cost sharing should be discussed with the City and other businesses on the road.
Review Layout For Proposed Changes To TH 12/CSAH 16/CSAH 17/CSAH 30 in Delano: The Committee reviewed plans. Cost sharing has not been determined. Changes proposed are not in the County's Five-Year Plan, so Mn/DOT will have to come up with funds if they want to force changes to the County highways. The City and County will ultimately have to approve changes. This was provided as an informational item.
Fingalson said a meeting was held in St. Michael on 8-2-01 with the Project Management Team for the Berning's Mill Bridge project. Fingalson said the City is in a tough situation as property owners are on two different extremes on what to do with the intersection. The recommendation of the Project Management Team was to hold a meeting on 8-10-01 at 1:00 p.m. with representation from as many County Board and City Council members as possible. Notice has already been provided that more than two County Baord members may be in attendance.
The Board addressed a request from Jim Stemper to be reimbursed for well repair in the amount of $857.50. The County previously purchased the property from Stemper (north of the Public Works site). As part of the agreement, Stemper is allowed to reside at the property up to one year if the property is maintained in the same condition excluding normal wear and tear. Jude was contacted by Stemper on 7-31-01 as the well went dry. Mattson questioned the process for approving the repair, stating that all five commissioners should have been involved or at least informed of the situation before approving of the expenditure. Fingalson said that Stemper came to the Highway Department with the problem. The Highway Department contacted the Attorney's Office and Jude for direction on how to proceed. Jude indicated at that time that Stemper should obtain a second opinion on well drilling. As this happened late evening on 7-31-01, Jude said he did not contact all of the Board members as they would be attending Committee meetings the morning of 8-1-01 and would be informed at that time of the situation. He had discussed the situation with Russek on 7-31-01. Eichelberg said he became aware of the situation on 7-31-01 as he had contacted Fingalson on another issue. Stemper subsequently found that a 3" insert would suffice and proceeded with repair the morning of 8-1-01. The repair took place before it was discussed on 8-1-01.
Sawatzke stated the County paid a premium price for the property, three times the market value of what the Assessor's office has for value. Stemper is residing on the property rent free for one year and Sawatzke felt if he fixed the well for his own personal use, that was far cheaper than renting elsewhere. He did not see where the repair benefited taxpayers. In response to the suggestion of potentially renting the property in the future substantiating the expenditure for the well repair, Sawatzke did not envision the County doing so. Russek supported renting the property as it would generate approximately $1000/month income. Russek also stated that if he had the finances, he would personally purchase the property from the County due to the gravel resource out there. Mattson said that no ground testing or surveying reflecting gravel depth had been completed. Asleson said that with the agreement, the Stempers could live on the property for up to one year if the property was maintained in the same condition excluding normal wear and tear. As far as the Board making necessary repairs, statutes do not provide much guidance. Emergency repairs can be made without advertising for bids by obtaining consent by the majority of the Board at their next meeting. If there had been a budgeted amount set aside for repairs, this expenditure may not even have been addressed by the Board. Eichelberg moved to approve payment of the repair out of professional services, seconded by Russek. In response to Sawatzke, Asleson clarified that the expenditure can be approved if a majority (3 out of 5) of the Commissioners agree with the repair and the claim is ratified at their next meeting. Sawatzke questioned whether the other Board members had been notified. Jude responded that Russek and Eichelberg had been notified there was a problem but the total expenditure was unknown. Sawatzke stated that Stemper made the expenditure without the Board being informed and without approval. Jude responded that he informed Stemper he would carry the bill forward for a vote. He pointed out this was a less expensive route than a new well. Sawatzke said he didn't disagree but that it didn't meet the criteria for an emergency expenditure as outlined by Asleson and that it may be an illegal expenditure. The motion carried 3-2 with Sawatzke and Mattson casting the nay votes.
