Bob Hiivala, Chief Deputy Auditor/Treasurer, requested that room numbering of the offices on the 2nd Floor be referred to the Building Committee. Mattson moved to approve the request, seconded by Russek, carried 4-0.
The Auditor’s Office received a request from Marvin Ortquist to place a crossing over County Ditch 12. All work completed would be at Ortquist’s cost. Ortquist explained that a home will be constructed on his property which would require crossing of the Ditch. The Ditch is currently tiled. There is also a surface ditch which will be maintained. Ortquist felt he may need to replace the culvert, depending on how deep it is. Mattson moved to approve the request, indicating Ortquist should come back to the Board with any problems. Ortquist indicated that he had been in contact with the SWCD. The motion carried 4-0 on a second by Russek.
Hiivala said that Bruce Kimmel, Springsted, has requested the Board schedule a sale date for the 1994A Solid Waste Bonds refunding. This is a current refunding. Russek moved to schedule the sale date for 8-09-04, seconded by Heeter, carried 4-0.
A petition was received from the City of Delano for transfer of a portion of Ditch #28. Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, indicated that this was the first request of this nature the Board has received from a City. The Board previously transferred all of County Ditches #9 and 21 to St. Michael and Albertville through special legislation. Subsequently, legislation was passed allowing for the transfer procedure. The City of Delano has supplied a resolution petitioning to use the Ditch for an outlet for the City’s drainage system. An engineering report was also supplied. The portion the City would like to take over is within the Parkview Hills Development. Asleson said the next action by the County Board would be to schedule a public hearing on the request. Notice would be mailed to benefitted landowners on the Ditch. Russek stated that the County needs a guarantee that the run off rate will be controlled. Russek moved to schedule the Public Hearing for 7-13-04 at 9:30 A.M., seconded by Mattson. Mattson said that the County would want to know at that time what their liabilities would be. Sawatzke hoped that Kerry Saxton would be available. The motion carried 4-0.
The claims listing was reviewed. On page 1, Court Administration, the signature copy will not include the claim to Aramark ($45.00). Hiivala indicated that the department was informed that this claim was being pulled. Mattson moved to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit, with the removal of the claim to Aramark. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 4-0.
A Building Committee Meeting was held on 6-9-04. Russek moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Mattson, carried 4-0:
Remodel Project Update.
• Final Inspection. The Architect will attend the next Committee Meeting to provide a summary of the project after the final inspection. The final inspection is scheduled for 6-11-04.
• Carpet. Carpet installation has been completed. The flawed carpet was used in the Detective Unit remodel, which provided a savings to the County.
• Paging System. Part of the wiring bid included a paging system which has not been installed. IT will continue to work on this.
• Panic Buttons. The panic buttons are being installed by KNR. Once completed, a test will be run on all departments.
• Signs. Signs have been installed and a few may require some minor revisions.
• Heat Pumps. As part of the project, 38 new heat pumps were installed on the 1st & 2nd Floors of the Annex Building. To date, three have experienced catastrophic failures and major parts were replaced. Hayes is seeking a price from the Contractor on an extended warranty. The Architect has suggested a 3-year warranty at no cost to the County (normally a 1-year warranty). Previously, a letter was received from Enviro-Con indicating that all units were freon compliant. Building Maintenance has found some units to be low in freon so it was suggested that all units be individually checked by Enviro-Con. It was felt that the freon check may be completed as part of the project finalization. Hayes said there may be a defect problem with the pumps as they are losing freon. The Balance Report is also expected. The last request for payment has not been received (Payment #11). It was the consensus that the final report from the Architect should be provided prior to making final payment.
• Air Quality, Annex. Dampers were installed in the air handlers in the basement. Al will complete CO2 testing to verify air quality improvement. Some complaints had been received.
• Decking. The caulking work has been completed. What is desired is a better warranty that complies with specifications. The vendor has not submitted the final pay request and was told that the County would not remit payment without warranty. Scott felt the County should require the 5-year warranty as outlined in the specifications. Scott referenced correspondence on the MP2 caulking which outlined instructions which had not been included with previous correspondence. These instructions called for wiping down the caulking with solvent after it is cleaned. Scott suggested that the north wall be inspected periodically, especially after periods of heavy rainfall. Hayes and Buskey recently did this and found no signs of leaking.
• Department Moves. The project involved 14 moves, which required extra work of the IT Department and Custodial staff. The assistance and savings provided by these departments was recognized.
• Conference Room Furniture. A quote was obtained for furniture for Conference Rooms 153 (1st Floor Annex) and C111 (between Extension and Veterans Services). To equip both rooms with furniture comparable to other conference rooms, the cost would be $7,500 for tables and chairs.
Recommendation: Approve equipping Conference Rooms 153 and C111 with furniture at a cost of $7,500 with funding from Fund 34. (End of Building Committee Minutes)
Jim Westrup, Wright County Amateur Radio Society, said their primary focus is on ham radio education. Their secondary focus is to set up an emergency services function with the Wright County Civil Defense and Sheriff Offices, as well as other organizations. Some areas of support have included: 1) Communications support for the 2003 Annandale Disaster Drill; 2) Developed a Wright County Skywarn Program to assist law enforcement; 3) Built a communications infrastructure for Pioneer Park; 4) Provided communications support for the recent Triathalon; 5) Started the groundwork for linking local hospitals via ham radio. The Society participates in ham radio contests. Such an event is being held on June 26 & 27 at Beebe Lake Park. The County Board was invited to attend. Monthly meetings are held at Brook’s restaurant and anyone is invited to attend. This was provided as an informational item.
Pat Melvin, Special Projects Administrator, provided an update on the Automated External Defibrillator Program. At the 7-09-03 Labor Management Loss Control Committee Meeting, a presentation on the benefits of the defibrillator was made by Dr. Charles Lick (Buffalo Hospital) and Chris Austin-Roehler (Public Health). The proposal is to place defibrillators at the Public Works site, the Courthouse, and the Courthouse Annex. The Human Services Center currently has a defibrillator. The units would be located in a hallway and training would be provided to a number of employees through the MN Safety Council (at no charge). A grant had been applied for through Wright Hennepin Electric but was not received. A total of $2500 was realized through an OSHA Grant. Chris Basgall, General Manager of Onyx FCR Landfill, was present at today’s meeting to present the County with a check for $1,697.00 toward the purchase of the defibrillators. Basgall said Onyx wants to be an active part of the community and feels the defibrillators will be an asset to the County as well as members of the public. The total cost for three defibrillators is $5,091 (1,697 each). That cost less the grant and donation brings the County’s contribution to $894.00. A funding source has not been identified. This was provided as an informational item.
At the last Meeting, the County Board adopted three Ordinance Amendments revising Section 14 of the Wright County Solid Waste Ordinance. The Board also directed Chuck Davis to complete research of other counties to determine the typical conversion ratio for construction and demolition debris. As part of the Ordinance Amendments, the language adopted included the definition of a cubic yard of MSW to weigh 600 pounds. At today’s meeting, a recommendation was received from Davis to accept the 600 lb./cu. yd. figure as the weight to be used in the Wright County Surcharge Ordinance. No action was required today as the Board already had accepted this figure at their last meeting.
At the last Board Meeting, DLR Group provided the final site evaluation of the Public Works site for its suitability for a future jail and/or law enforcement center. At that meeting, it was the consensus that DLR Group update their spreadsheets to include projections and calculations of what it would cost to remove gravel from the land. Today John Crump, DLR Group, said the recommendation of Option 2 as presented last week stands. He distributed the “Final Site Evaluation of Public Works Site” as prepared by DLR Group and referenced pages 6 & 7 reflecting the updated cost comparisons. The site evaluation process and information summary of adjacent land was reflected on page 4. The loss of gravel revenue below the proposed Jail/Law Enforcement Center ranges from $280,000-$500,000 and is approximately equal to purchasing 20 acres at $300,000-$600,000 adjacent to Hwy. 25 or Hwy. 55. Land costs drop approximately $10,000/acre away from primary traffic corridors but utility costs increase $260,000 for each mile from existing utilities. The final comparison is the loss of potential income held in the residual value of the land following mining ($200,000) against a current expenditure of funds ($300,000-$600,000) to obtain land for construction. Assuming the sale of the land immediately following the depletion of gravel in 2037 provides a return on investment of 33% to 66% after 23 years. This calculates to a very low yearly rate of return of .84% to 1.5% which further reinforces the decision to build a new facility on the Public Works site. Crump said the recommendation stands that the best location off site for a Jail is the northwest corner of the Public Works site. This issue will be discussed further at the Committee Of The Whole Meeting scheduled for 11:00 A.M.
A Personnel Committee Meeting was held on 6-9-04. Heeter moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Russek. Mattson inquired whether the request for the four deputies was within the 2004 Budget. Sawatzke responded that it was not. The request for increased hours came in after the budget process. The budget will reflect increased expenses but will be offset with additional revenues. Revenues received will cover the cost of the deputies, cars and equipment. The motion to approve the minutes carried 4-0.
Requests For Additional Contract Hours, Sheriff Department. Monticello , Otsego, Clearwater and Montrose are requesting additional coverage for 2004 and Rockford City has reduced their hours. The net increase in hours is 2,857 for 2004, resulting in an additional $119,256 in revenue in 2004. When carried into 2005, the total increase in annual hours is 5,463 for an increase in revenue over the budgeted 2004 figure of $260,859. The request figures to 16 hours/day or about 3.5 deputies. One officer may return in December from military leave. Recommendation: Approve request to hire four additional deputies starting 8-1-04 at a cost of $70,000; two squad cars for $45,000; and $4,000 for equipment.
Personnel Policy & Procedure Manual. The Committee continued its review of the Manual by discussing the following topics:
Personal Appearance Of Employees. It was the consensus to drop reference to capri pants and add a sentence that department heads may have more restrictive rules of dress than what is listed in the Policy. The draft Policy will be distributed to Department Heads and discussed at the next Leadership Team meeting.
Employee Recognition. Add a sentence that no department shall provide gifts to employees without prior approval from the County Board. If a department has a recognition plaque upon retirement of an employee, it will be presented in lieu of the more generic plaque. Section 309.02 was revised to the sentence ends “...at retirement.”
Pre-Employment Physical Examinations. The Committee discussed the value of conducting the stress test. Personnel staff will do further research on this issue.
Weapons. The Committee approves of having a Weapons Policy. A sentence will be added regarding who employees should notify if they are aware of somebody having a weapon.
Free Speech/Assembly. This item will be laid over so that Brian Asleson can be in attendance.
Mileage. At the request of Don Mleziva, Section 506.05 will be revised to read, “...that payment will be made for late submissions up to a maximum of 90 days after the incurrence of the expense, if extenuating circumstances preventing timely submission exist.” (End of Personnel Minutes)
At 9:45 A.M., Commissioner Sawatzke closed the bid process for the CSAH 35/Bison Blvd. Signal Project (CP 86-635-04, Contract #0405). The Engineer’s estimate was $160,000. The alternate is for an emergency preemption which the City of Buffalo may include dependent upon price. Fingalson opened and read the bids. Russek moved to lay the bids over for one week to provide an opportunity to meet with the City on the alternate. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 4-0.

A medical hardship mobile home placement request was discussed. The request is from John and Linda Veches (Silver Creek Township). Tom Salkowski, Planning & Zoning Administrator, referenced a memo dated 6-7-04 to the County Coordinator outlining the staff visit and findings. He said Planning & Zoning’s role is to see if there is adequate room for the mobile home and whether zoning standards are met. For the record he wanted to emphasize that if placement is approved, it is for a temporary use. The mobile home must be removed when it is no longer being used for a medical hardship. One letter of concern was received from a neighbor indicating that they would have less of an objection if the placement were on the west side of the existing home on the property. Richard Norman, County Coordinator, said a notice was sent to the person voicing objection indicating that this issue would be discussed today. Linda Veches said their home is in the center of 10 acres. The proposed location for the mobile home would be on the west side of their existing home. Veches said the mobile home would allow her to care for a relative. She has been providing care for this person for 10 years. Heeter visited with Human Services on this request and they have determined that it is a medical hardship. Heeter moved to approve the mobile home placement as requested, seconded by Mattson. The motion was amended to include that approval is dependent upon meeting Planning & Zoning specifications and that the mobile home must be removed 60 days after the medical hardship need no longer exists. The mobile home is to be located on the west side of the property. The motion carried 4-0.
A Committee Of The Whole meeting was held on 6-01-04. Russek moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Mattson, carried 4-0:
Discuss Topics From Leadership Team Retreat. The May 25, 2004 meeting was reconvened at 10:55 A.M. At that meeting Norman was directed to draft parameters of an expanded space study to present to DLR Group for a proposal (attached). The following additions were made to the list:
I. Analyze potential expansion of the Government Center
- Green spaces
- Surrounding County owned property
- Acquisition of properties to the West and North
- Abandonment of streets to the West or North
II. Analyze future space needs of departments at Public Works in conjunction with site location for Jail. (Public Works and Parks store off season equipment at the Compost Facility which may not be available in the future.)
III. Analyze Cokato Shop space. (This was discussed as a possible Human Services branch site several years ago.)
IV. Analyze number of additional staff positions which could be accommodated through consolidation and reconfiguration of current space within departments.
V. Analyze parking needs.
Norman clarified the intent of item #3 is if the Sheriff Department were to relocate alone, or in conjunction with one of the other departments listed. Sawatzke felt EOC should remain by Vets Services/Civil Defense and that it should be deleted from the list. A satellite courtroom at the Jail was discussed. Nordeen stated satellite courtrooms are being dropped by other counties because of logistical reasons. Costs associated with transporting prisoners to court was mentioned. The value of gravel at the Public Works site was discussed in relation to the expense of mining the gravel in preparation for a new Jail site on County owned property versus acquiring property which has already been mined. Heeter will contact Bill Davis regarding whether he would be interested in selling some land where mining has been completed. Fantauzza stated that elevation and site preparation costs need to be considered in addition to the cost of land. There was brief discussion on possible uses of the current Jail. MacMillan questioned contacting the Department of Corrections regarding their interest in a long-term lease agreement for juvenile offenders. The Committee felt all options should be explored. There was general discussion on projecting space and staffing needs for five and ten years and longer periods of time. In response to a question from Heeter, Fantauzza stated the study could be completed in 60-90 days. Norman requested DLR Group attach estimated costs associated with each of the items on the list. Recommendation: Heeter to contact Bill Davis regarding the status of his property. Request DLR Group develop a proposal for an expanded space study of issues on the list, along with additions from today’s meeting for presentation at the June 15, 2004 Board Meeting. The Committee will meet again a 11:00 A.M., June 15th in the Commissioner’s Board Room. (End of Committee Of The Whole Minutes)
A Technology Committee Meeting was held on 6-09-04:
Record Management Projects.
Records Center Build-Out. The Records Management Center has been constructed. The three departments of Human Services, Sheriff and Attorney are working on file processing and keying into the database. The total cost was estimated at $32,000 and the actual cost was $32,267. Swing obtained a quote from Climate Air for $4,780 for air conditioning in the Center. He felt problems associated with humidity might arise during summer months. Norman suggested the use of dehumidifiers as well. Recommendation: Swing will contact Climate Air and obtain information to be brought back to the Committee.
Attorney Project. Swing said the Attorney’s Office has a very complicated filing system. In October, 2003, the cost estimate to out source the project was $17,000. In January, 2004, these costs rose to $26,000. At the February, 2004 Committee meeting, the recommendation was to approve in-house secretarial staff overtime to conduct a pilot project. Hohl explained that thus far, 102 hours of overtime have been utilized at a cost of $2,164.89. Four staff are willing to continue with the project if paid overtime hours. Staff did not commit to an exact number of hours in the Summer but did indicate they would continue with the project. The project thus far has created additional filing space. Recommendation: Authorize use of the $17,000 approved last October for this project and utilize the funds toward overtime hours as an in-house project. The anticipated completion date for the Attorney Project is 12-31-04. Swing provided an update on the status of the Sheriff and Human Services Record Management Projects. The Sheriff’s Department is funding a half-time person who is working on update of information. Human Services will proceed with in-house assistance to set up their active records in the Center. DeMars and Schillewaert were recognized for their efforts.
Record Management - Court Administration. At the last Committee meeting, approval was gained to store files in the Records Center on a temporary basis with the understanding they would be removed by 9-1-04. At today’s meeting, the request was to extend this date to 12-31-04. Recommendation: Approve request.
Objectives considered for 2005. Swing outlined the objectives which included renewing the contract with consultant Rosanne Stoltz ($18,000). Part of the budget proposal will include the consultant contract to work with the three departments on procedures and to refine the Record Management Policy Manual. Another objective would be to merge the three databases into one record management software system (estimate $23,000). The first year file review and destruction of Record Center files would be completed. Swing projected Personnel records would be the next area to be reviewed.
Squad Car Project. A total of $150,000 of the Equipment Note was earmarked for this project. The project is in its first of three years, with 1/3 of the fleet being equipped with computers allowing staff to receive data in the field. Helgeson stated an advantage already realized is with the identification of individuals through photographs. This was provided as an informational item.
2005 Automation Budget Guidelines (attached). Swing highlighted the following:
• IT staff will work with individual departments on technology needs. In past years, Swing has provided this support.
• Computer costs will not be reduced at this time due to the increased cost associated with the flat panel monitor (as compared to the CRT).
• Desktop attached printers are being discouraged and workgroup printers encouraged. If a desktop printer is purchased, it should not be color due to the costs associated with printer cartridge replacement.
• Plans are to elevate in-house training programs. Estimates are being provided for the budget.
Web Portal Concept. Swing is a member of the MCCC. A small group of
its members has formed a Web Portal Committee. The website is one of the key components. The internet and website are the most significant automation systems for the County. The Web Portal Committee will work on a unified approach to the development of the website. It would allow taxpayers to visit county websites and access information with the same interface. A consistent fee would be charged in participating counties. Issues next year would include e-payment and functionality of land records offices. Just as the property taxes were outsourced several years ago, the website would be outsourced. This would be called the web portal. One of the key objectives is the efficiencies which will be realized in departments. Those seeking information will be available to do so on-line with a fee attached. Many companies would be willing to pay rather than sending staff to counties to obtain the information. This concept has been shared with the Auditor, Recorder and Assessor. The Recorder has approximately $35,000 earmarked which could be used toward this venture. Previously, a purchase order was generated to a vendor that supports the Recorder’s system. This vendor had a web component available for $35,000. The purchase order was stopped. Swing suggested use of these funds toward this new concept if the previous contract is cancelled. Recommendation: Endorse the Web Portal Concept. (End of Technology Committee Minutes)
The Board reviewed Articles of Incorporation for the Mid-MN Mississippi River Resource Conservation & Development Council, Inc. The Articles were reviewed by Rinke-Noonan and the County Attorney’s Office. Russek said they are seeking approval from each member county. Russek moved to accept the Articles of Incorporation, seconded by Heeter. In response to Mattson, Russek indicated the annual fee for RC&D is $100. It was recognized that this cost may increase in the future. Any increase would be reviewed by the County Board. The motion carried 4-0.
Norman said the WCCA Agency has the opportunity to receive grant funds in excess of $32,000 to conduct lead testing and reduction activities in Wright County. This program is only for families with children under 6 years of age where elevated lead levels have been diagnosed in the children. In order for WCCA to conduct these activities, Wright County will need to agree to be the legal project sponsor and enter into a contract with the Department of Employment and Economic Development as funding may only be conveyed through a local unit of government. Mattson moved to adopt Resolution #04-34 authorizing signatures on the contract authorizing Wright County to be the sponsor of the Lead Hazard Control Grant. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 4-0 on a roll call vote.
Genell Reese, Civil Defense Director, said a meeting was held on 6-14-04 with the MN Dept of Public Safety Regional Coordinator to discuss the Emergency Operations Plan. Steve Berg, who amended the Plan, was provided the information which needed to be changed. Another meeting will be held on 6-28-04. Upon correction of the Plan, it is anticipated that Wright County will receive grant monies. Heeter moved to establish a Civil Defense Committee Meeting on 6-28-04, seconded by Russek, carried 4-0. Reese is to contact the Regional Coordinator to request that the meeting either be held at 11:00 A.M. or 2:30 P.M.
Heeter provided an update on the Washington Fly-In which she recently attended with Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer. There is the potential to receive $5 million in funding for the Highway 55 Coalition Project, and $4 million has been earmarked for Hwy. 241. She referenced the varying opinions of Board members with regard to attendance at the Fly-In. Heeter felt that attendance at this event was important in an effort to meet with Legislators to inform them of projects.
Norman said a meeting with city representatives will be held on 6-22-04. He requested that a Committee Of The Whole Meeting be scheduled prior to this meeting to discuss the agenda. Department Heads would be invited to attend the Committee meeting. Russek moved to schedule a Committee Of The Whole meeting on 6-22-04 at 10:30 A.M., seconded by Heeter, carried 4-0.
Asleson referenced action by the County Board several weeks ago authorizing signature on a letter of support for land acquisition on Pelican Lake (290 acre parcel) by the US Fish & Wildlife Service. In return, the US Fish & Wildlife Service has asked for some assistance. The Legislature amended the Open Meeting Law so the Board is allowed to hold a closed session to discuss a possible purchase price for land. The parcel identification numbers involved include: 213-100-362300, 202-000-012200, 202-000-021100, and 213-100-354200. The meeting was recessed to a Closed Session at 10:25 A.M. and the regular meeting was reconvened at 11:29 A.M.
