Judge Gary Meyer addressed the Board with departing comments. Judge Meyer explained that he is leaving Wright County for personal reasons. He has built a home at St. Mary's Point to be closer to his family and will work for Washington County. Judge Meyer said he leaves with reluctance, having served as a Judge in Wright County since 1987. He commended Judge Douglas, Judge Mossey and Judge Johnson for their excellent service. He cited the positive relationship between Court staff, Court Services, Court Administration, Attorney and the Judges.

Doug Gruber, Auditor/Treasurer, presented the March Revenue/Expenditure Reports for approval. Mattson moved to accept the guidelines, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0.

Discussion followed on a tax forfeit parcel located in Delano. This was pulled from a prior tax forfeit sale due to the City of Delano expressing interest in purchasing the parcel. Nothing has transpired until recently when the City again indicated interest in the parcel. There are $48,000 in special assessments owed but the City can choose to forgive them. The City has requested an updated appraisal. Jude moved to direct the Auditor, Assessor and Russek to come up with a recommendation on the appraisal, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0.

On a motion by Jude, seconded by Eichelberg, all voted to approve a plat, "HIGHLAND ESTATES," as submitted by Gary I. & Vicki L. Hoglund, husband and wife, fee owners of the following property described in part as: Part of the SE1/4 or the SE1/4, Section 30, Township 122, Range 26; and the NE1/4 or the SE1/4 of said Section 30; with all outstanding taxes including green acre liability, if any, having been paid; the park dedication fee has been paid (#88404); there is a road bond on file; and the title opinion prepared by D. A. Schroeppel, attorney, has been reviewed by Assistant County Attorney Thomas C. Zins, who finds the plat to be ready for recording.

The claims listing was reviewed. The claim on page 2, Hillyard Floor Care Supply ($30.99) will be corrected and taken from line item 111-6411 instead of 031-6235. On a motion by Eichelberg, second by Mattson, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit.

Russek received correspondence from Scott & Burnell Lovaasen commending staff in the Auditor/Treasurer and Assessor Offices, particularly Donna Reddemann , Randy DesMarais and Sandy Dickerman for their assistance in resolving a problem associated with their property. A copy of this letter will be given to those mentioned and placed in their Personnel files.

A Building Committee meeting was held on 4-24-02. On a motion by Jude, second by Eichelberg, all voted to approve the minutes as presented. A summary of the minutes follows:

Quotes, Camera Recording System. A prioritized listing of security issues and related costs was distributed and reviewed, along with a map of the Government Center outlining placement of security cameras and card access doors. The install of a camera/monitor in License Bureau would be temporary until remodeling or relocation is complete with a hallway counter. Sheriff Miller said the cameras in dispatch are obsolete and should be replaced to tie into the current system. The estimated cost of this is $5500 and was added to the quote by Russell's Lock & Key. Custodial uniforms will cost $1700/year providing five changes of shirts/pants for 13 custodians and includes laundering. A cost estimate of $23,500 was received to raise the air intake vents. Proposed changes to the mail delivery to the Government Center may not take place as the Post Office is undergoing some reorganization. Metal detectors, expanding the current paging system and funding were discussed. Recommendation was to proceed with implementation of Item 1. Point-Of-Entry, II. Video/Recording System, III. License Bureau camera/monitor, IV. Custodian Uniforms, and X. Metal Detector.

Humidity Control, Public Works Building. A proposal from Climate Air, $10,260, was discussed to change the current pneumatic control system. The system was bid as an alternate and accepted due to cost and the Mechanical Engineer for the project said it would work. The humidity and ice buildup problems continue even though attempts to correct the problem have been made by the Architect and Contractor. Suggested funding source is approximately $5200 from the sale of a boom truck and additional revenue from equipment sold at the auction. Norman will research the cost difference in the alternate bid and what the Mechanical Engineer designed in the specifications. Once parts are ordered, the work could begin within one month with completion within two weeks. Recommendation: Accept the Climate Air proposal to correct the humidity problem at PWB with funding from the Highway equipment sales.

Improvement to Sheriff's Impound Area, PWB. Two proposals for enclosing the Sheriff's Office impound lot were presented. Plan A would have a 6' tall Commercial Grade chain link fence topped with barbed wire that would encircle the impound lot, shed and hill ($20,000). Plan B would enclose the impound lot excluding the shed and hill ($12,000). Possible funding sources will be reviewed. Recommendation: Obtain formal quotes for Plan A and B.

Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, reviewed the 4-16-02 Parks Commission Minutes and recommendations on the Lake Ida School. At the Parks Commission meeting, Susie Bjorkland, Freedom Farm Therapeutic Riding Center, requested that the condition of the Lake Ida School be evaluated. She would like to enter into an agreement between Wright County, Freedom Farm and the 4-H group which uses the facility. This agreement would allow Freedom Farm to utilize the School for lodging for families participating in overnight activities. Freedom Farm borders the School property. The mission of Freedom Farm (non profit agency) is to assist children and adults with all types of special needs to improve mobility and build confidence by using the unique attributes of the horse to assist in this physical and emotional development. The Parks Commission voted to recommend to the County Board to allow further research to determine structural soundness of the School and that the Parks Commission remain as the reviewing Board to look at issues such as insurance needs, legal matters, and planning and zoning regulations. Other issues discussed by the Parks Commission included an update on the public survey, web page update, monthly activity report, County Fair booth fees, and Regional Trail Planning update. At today's County Board meeting, Mattice said that Bjorkland is pursuing grants to assist with the cost of remodeling, to be completed at no cost to the County. The building was determined to be sound by a construction person. Mattice will have the Building Inspector check for compliance (septic system, electrical, etc.). Currently, there is no septic system in place. It was the consensus to proceed with researching the request including such issues as insurance, liability, and compliance. Mattice is also to make sure the 4-H group can continue to use the facility and to obtain their support for pursuing this request. Mattice said the referendum passed in St. Michael for the Becker Woods preservation project. On behalf of the Parks Commission, he expressed thanks for the County Board's support in preserving the area.

On a motion by Mattson, second by Eichelberg, all voted to schedule a Transportation Committee Of The Whole meeting for 5-8-02 at 1:30 P.M. The Agenda will include: 1) Access Concerns for Life in Christ Lutheran Church in Albertville; 2) Discuss Financing Options for CSAH 19 in Albertville; 3) Discuss Options for Albertville Truck Station.

Fingalson and Jude attended a transportation meeting and the James Oberstar Forum on Transportation Policy and Technology on 4-29-02. The official award of the funding for the 212 Corridor Group was presented. It offered an opportunity to publicize the Hwy. 55 Corridor Coalition Group. Fingalson and Jude were recognized at the transportation meeting for their efforts in protecting the corridor to provide a safer roadway for the future.

A Budget Committee meeting was held on 4-24-02. On a motion by Mattson, second by Eichelberg, all voted to approve the minutes as presented. A summary of the minutes follows:

GASB 34 Implementation. Hiivala distributed information and provided an overview of the process to switch to GASB 34. GASB 34 shifts the reporting focus from financial resources to economic resources. The major impact of GASB 34 will be the inclusion of infrastructure, to include such items as highways, bridges, etc., along with depreciation figures. GASB 34 is required to be implemented for 2003. In the Spring of 2004, it will be required that 2002 is restated in GASB 34 format. The Committee consensus was to create a GASB 34 Committee. Members of the Committee will include: Richard Norman, Bob Hiivala, Larry DeMars, Nila Ellis, Doug Gruber, Wayne Fingalson, and Don Mleziva. As GASB 34 is implemented, the Board would adopt resolutions passing policies. The Committee consensus was to create an Accounting & Finance Committee (sub-committee of GASB 34 Committee) to implement consolidation of the general ledger. Consolidation of the general ledger was approved previously by the County Board. Norman said both Committees will have reporting relationships back to the Budget Committee. The following will serve on the Committee: Bob Hiivala, Larry DeMars, Nila Ellis, Lonnie Ogden, Alicia Gillham, Marsha Kutz and Cindy Davis. Norman, Russek and Gruber will attend the first meeting being held on 4-30-02 at 2:00 P.M. With consolidation of the general ledger, the Board will receive one revenue/expenditure guideline for review. Norman requested that this report tie to the line items presented at budget. Hiivala will draft a time line for implementation of GASB 34.

A Negotiation Committee meeting was held on 4-24-02. Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Jude, carried 5-0:

HAY Job Description Evaluation Results. The Committee reviewed the points for the Home Health Aide Coordinator and Account Clerk/Tax Forfeiture Specialist positions. Recommendation: Authorize Norman to write letters to the Business Agents involved explaining the proposal of the Negotiation Committee.

A Personnel Committee meeting was held on 4-24-02. Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes and recommendations, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0:

Performance Appraisal - Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer. Based on review of three appraisals submitted, the Committee recommends an overall rating of "Superior." The Committee further recommends that Fingalson be reappointed to a four-year term as Highway Engineer commencing May, 2002.

Performance Appraisal - Kathy Gramsey, Administrative Clerk. Based on review of five appraisals submitted, the Committee recommends an overall rating of "Exceptional."

HAY Job Description Evaluation Results. The job classification Collection Services Supervisor II received 2,161 points. There is one incumbent in this classification. Based on the point total, this classification fits into Class "F" on the Non-Union Salary Schedule. The incumbent is being paid at a Class "E" level. The other position is new in the Human Services Department. Recommendation: Place the Collection Services Supervisor II position in Class "F" on the Non-Union Salary Schedule. The incumbent in this position will remain on the Class "E" salary schedule so that she is not adversely impacted by this change.

A Technology Committee meeting was held on 4-24-02. The minutes were corrected to include Professional Services as the funding source for payment of the invoices for Brenda Schald. Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Jude, carried 5-0. A summary of the minutes follows:

Address Changes On 106th St. NW. Twelve properties require a change of address from Maple Lake to Annandale. The house and street number will remain as listed. The Annandale Post Office delivers to these properties and concurs with the requested address changes. Two of the properties are not seasonal. The request originated from Pat and Darrell Dahl who reside at the property year round. The change will not affect E-911 Emergency Services. The address change will affect properties with house number from 7602-7696 and 7800-7854. The consensus of the Committee was to proceed with the changes as requested.

Fees For Data. Proposed changes to the fee schedule were distributed. The trend is the provision of public information via the website at no cost. The proposal is to adjust the fees to make them consistent with what is being done in the metro area and to be in compliance with MN Statute. Statute indicates that a County may require the requestor to pay actual costs of certifying, searching, compiling, copying, or electronically transmitting the data. Data has a commercial value when it is a substantial and discrete portion of a database or system developed with a significant expenditure of public funds. A reasonable fee related to the development costs may be added. The proposed changes are reflected below (underlined):

$5.00 postage & handling fee for 1 to 3 prints

Fees for orders of 4 or more prints will be calculated using the cost of postage + $5.00 handling fee.

Mailing Tubes are available for an additional $4.00.

Increases in the Surveyor's Department relate to covering labor costs, standardizing costs across County departments, and costs associated with the aerial photos. Half section map fees have been not been changed for 10 years. A survey of neighboring counties was completed. It was felt the Auditor's Office may want to research time spent on plat checking and inquired whether they should be charging for this service. Since a public hearing would be required for the increase to the plat checking fees, all increases could be considered at that time. A public hearing is required when there is a change in fees for service. The projected implementation date for the change in fee structure would be 7-1-02.

Local Digital Phone Service. Local digital service is less expensive and more efficient than the analog service the County currently has. A purchase order for local service was issued last Fall based on a 14 month recoupment of switch upgrade costs. This order was subsequently cancelled when a error on quoted figures resulted in an unacceptable extension of the recoupment period. It was decided then that this item be brought back to the Committee for reassessment. Swing recommended, for budget reasons and due to the terms of the contract with Brenda Schald & Associates, that the switch to local digital phone service be budgeted for year 2003 with installation to occur after August. This move would prevent the obligation to Brenda Schald & Associates which is 50% of savings realized for 18 months following implementation. The County would likely benefit also from a more efficient, less costly upgrade at that time. The Committee recommendation was to discuss this request during the 2003 budget sessions for installation after 9-1-03.

Invoice, Brenda S. Schald & Associates. The Committee consensus was to recommend payment of the invoice, $4,687.75, out of the Professional Services line item.

Contention For Satellite Equipment. When the satellite equipment was installed in the Government Center, it was for use by the Extension Service. Since that time, more demand by other departments has been realized. The problem lies in the fact that the equipment is housed in the Community Room. Swing suggested rewiring, allowing the equipment to be moved to another location for ease in taping and to free up the Community Room for other meetings. Swing spoke with the County Coordinator who provided approval to move the equipment out of the Community Room. Klein said that in 2001, 15 satellite programs were accessed. In 2002, 19 programs have been scheduled thus far. Another possible location would be C118 (Sheriff's Conference Room). Human Services Center has inquired about purchasing a satellite dish for their location. However, Swing felt that if another location were provided in the Government Center this would not be required. The consensus of the Committee was to endorse rewiring to other location(s) in the Government Center. Swing is to research the cost of and present these figures to the County Board.

On a motion by Sawatzke, second by Eichelberg, all voted to schedule Public Hearing for 5-28-02 at 9:30 A.M. to address the requested change in fees for data.

A Ways & Means Committee meeting was held on 4-24-02. On a motion by Sawatzke, second by Jude, all voted to approve the minutes and recommendations. A summary of the minutes follows:

Bid Opening, Seasonal Requirements. Jude officially closed the acceptance of bids and acknowledged receipt of the bids received by the closing deadline. Bids were opened by Fingalson and Hayes (see attached).

Bauerly Co. Pit Operations. Seifert-Kissner distributed copies of a letter dated April 24, 2002 to Tom Salkowski, Planning & Zoning Administrator, providing a comprehensive written description of the restoration plan at the South Haven gravel site. A meeting was held on April 4, 2002 with Dave and Mark Bauerly, Seifert-Kissner, Zins, Mattice and himself to resolve outstanding issues. Two maps were presented at today's meeting: one map shows existing conditions and the other the restoration plan. The wetlands would be delineated on the final copy of the restoration map. Mattice indicated a small corner on the map that also needs to be included. Zins distributed copies of the draft Comprehensive Agreement Between Bauerly Brothers, Inc. and Wright County. A copy of the April 24, 2002 letter from Bauerly Brothers, Inc. would be included as an attachment to 4.B. It was agreed that Zins would prepare the warranty deed for signature. Seifert-Kissner stated they have been working with Steve Applebaum from the DNR and others for training on reforesting the big woods and using plants on site to help restore naturally. In regard to the sand piles, she stated it is anticipated that there will be a big demand for the sand over the next 5-6 years because of its quality. Zins stated agreement has been reached on the "hours of operation agreement" other than the sunset date of the agreement. Seifert-Kissner stated Bauerly Brothers, Inc. is requesting a sunset date of 2010. Agreement was reached for an end date of June 1, 2008. In response to a question from Zins, Seifert-Kissner stated that Dave Bauerly has reviewed the comprehensive document and is in agreement. Jude and Sawatzke requested Zins, Salkowski and Mattice review all final documents, agreements and maps and forward to the County Board when ready for acceptance. It is anticipated all documents will be ready within two weeks. Recommendation: Bauerly Bros. to provide new maps with wetlands delineated and incorporate the corner referenced by Mattice. Zins will prepare the warranty deed and incorporate into the Comprehensive Agreement the sunset date of June 1, 2008 and include the April 24, 2002 letter from Bauerly Bros. as an attachment to 4.B along with the two maps. Zins, Salkowski and Mattice will review all final documents and forward to the County Board when ready for acceptance.

On a motion by Jude, second by Sawatzke, roll call vote carried 5-0 to adopt Resolution #02-27 approving a Charitable Gambling Application submitted by the Clear Lake Lions Club (Monticello Twp.).

Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, met previously with the Sheriff's Department to discuss the request for proposal from Crossroads Animal Shelter for dangerous dog services. The recommendation is to meet with Crossroads to work out details of the agreement. The main shortcoming is that evening and weekend on call service will not be provided. They also do not indicate a willingness to pick up animals. The Sheriff's Office is not equipped for this function. A possible alternative would be to contract with animal control officers located within Wright County. The Crossroads proposal does reflect that they may be able to provide this service in the future. Jude moved to lay this issue over. Asleson will place it back onto the Agenda when he feels he has obtained the information desired. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 5-0.

Asleson requested the Board recess into closed session at the end of today's meeting to discuss a settlement agreement with Superior Landfill relating to attorney's fees and other issues.

Russek represented the CROW Organization of Waters at a MN Public Radio Meeting at St. John's University. Questions will be formulated for the public to see how much awareness there is on rivers.

Norman indicated that the lease agreement with the Department of Public Safety expires 7-1-02. They are requesting another three-year agreement with a one-year option for lease of space in the Government Center. Eichelberg moved to lay this item over for one week as space will be discussed during the Leadership Team Retreat. The motion carried 5-0 on a second by Mattson.

The Board recessed into closed session at 10:22 A.M. regarding the Superior Landfill partial settlement agreement. They reconvened the Board meeting at 10:49 A.M. Asleson said it was the recommendation of MCIT (MN Counties Insurance Trust) and John Baker to sign the agreement calling for a $1.2 million payment by MCIT to Dorsey & Whitney. Eichelberg moved to authorize signatures on the agreement, seconded by Jude. On page 2, paragraph 2 of the agreement, "defendant" was changed to read "MCIT." On page 4, Item 5, the first word was changed from "This" to "The." The signature page will also be revised to include a signature by MCIT. Eichelberg and Jude agreed that these changes are included with the motion to authorize signatures. The motion carried 5-0.
