The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Heeter, Sawatzke, Mattson, Russek and Eichelberg present.

Russek moved to approve the minutes of 2-15-05, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0.

Heeter moved to approve the Agenda, seconded by Russek, carried unanimously.

On a motion by Eichelberg, second by Russek, all voted to approve the Consent Agenda:

A. ADMINISTRATION

1. Seasonal On Sale Beer License For St. Mary’s Mens Club (Franklin Twp.).

Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, presented the claims listing for approval. He referenced a claim on Page 10, Greg Kramber ($25.84), for meal reimbursement. The claim should have been payable to Jason Kramber and will be corrected. Two claims from the Road & Bridge portion of the abstract were pulled by Hiivala. The expenditures were for meals for a Safety Program. The Auditor will verify that these were appropriate expenditures. Mattson noticed a number of claims for Court Administration and hoped the State wasn’t pushing to get things completed before the State takeover of Courts on 7-1-05. Mattson referenced a claim on page 14 to the Sherburne County Sheriff relating to reimbursement for inmate pharmacy costs. Mattson said it appeared Sherburne County uses a number of different pharmacies. Sawatzke noted that the names reflected in the abstract are those of inmates, not pharmacies. Russek moved to approve the claims as listed in the abstract with the change and two withdrawals, subject to audit. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0.

The Aggregate Mining Conference which was originally scheduled for March 30-31, 2005, has been rescheduled to April 18-19, 2005, due to a conflict with the AMC Legislative Conference. Russek moved to authorize attendance, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0.

Russek moved to adopt Resolution #05-11 approving the annual spring load restrictions, seconded by Heeter, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote. Load limitations will go into effect when the signs are erected and will remain in effect until removed. The timing of the road postings will be determined by the County Highway Engineer.

Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #05-12 approving Detour Compensation Agreement No. 87640 with Mn/DOT for TH 25. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Craig Spofford, Regional Lead Supervisor for the Central MN Jobs & Training Services (CMJTS), presented the Annual Report. The CMJTS serves an eleven county region, including Wright County. Programs include Youthbuild, Workforce Investment Act Youth Program, Minnesota Youth Programs, Food Support Employment & Training Program, MN Family Investment Program, Welfare-To-Work Program, On-The-Job Training, Dislocated Worker Program, and Workforce Investment Act. The calendar handout highlights different counties. Wright County is featured in November and December and reflects success stories of Wright County participants in programs offered by the CMJTS. Spofford provided a draft letter that, if approved by the County Board, would be forwarded to Representative Tom Emmer, Senator Mark Ourada, and Representative Bruce Anderson in support of the MN Youth Program (MYP). The letter indicates the County is opposed to the elimination of funding for the MYP as proposed in Governor Pawlenty’s 2005-2006 budget. MYP provides roughly 25% of CMJTS’s overall youth budget for the eleven county region. If cut, 300 at-risk youth will not be served. These funds are used to leverage additional federal dollars to serve vulnerable youth. The letter further states that at an average cost of less than $1400/person, MYP is one of the best investments Minnesota can make. It results in a reduction in welfare and juvenile justice costs and helps them ultimately become a tax paying wage earner. The letter requests reinstatement of the MYP service level.

Spofford introduced Terra Brooks, Youth Employment Specialist, who has been working with the MYP Program. Alex Spearing, age 15, spoke of his involvement in the program. He performs general cleaning at the Community Center, parks, fire hall, and cemeteries. The program has kept him out of trouble and has resulted in better grades in school. Matt Robinson, age 15, assists with Meals-On-Wheels and supports the program. Mary Patnode, Director of the Corner Stones Schools, explained that the program is a summer academic enrichment program that targets students who have been defined with social and emotional disorders. They have about 35 students, of which 27 are currently Wright County residents, and their goal is to manage behavioral issues. Those enrolled either graduate or return to home school. They teach self sufficiency. They collaborate with MYP to apply what is taught to real life situations and assist with finding jobs. MYP is considered one of their highest level of resources. Patnode said many students would not be able to obtain employment without the assistance of the Workforce Center. Patnode said this is a program that needs and deserves to be continued. Bill Miller, Monticello High School Special Education, works with the youth employment staff to provide opportunities for students to work in non-profit segments. He spoke of the growth he has seen in youth involved in the program. He asked for continued support of the funding for the program.

Sawatzke said the CMJTS has received $332,974 for this program from the State and inquired as to how this was expended. Spofford said students are placed in non-profit agencies and are paid minimum wage for hours worked. Funds are utilized toward administrative staffing. Federal dollars are also used for administrative costs. Mattson inquired about the process for adult program screening. It was explained that there is an intake process. Age or disability could be factors related to employment barriers. They provide assistance with job searching through training and classes. Other programs assist Dislocated Workers and On-The-Job training.

Eichelberg moved to authorize signatures on the letters to Representative Tom Emmer, Senator Mark Ourada, and Representative Bruce Anderson, in support of the MN Youth Program (MYP). The motion was seconded by Heeter. The letters will be drafted on County letterhead. Spofford was directed to change the letters to reflect that the support is the position of the County Board instead of only the Board Chair. The motion carried 5-0.

Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, presented for approval a resolution supporting the Regional Trail Grant Application for CSAH 17, which was laid over from the last meeting. CSAH 17 is scheduled for a road upgrade in 2006, and a public hearing will be held at the Delano City Hall on March 10th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. to discuss road alignments. A trail is proposed along CSAH 17 as part of this project.

Mattson voiced concern with the trail, as well as the CSAH 12 trail project. He felt they were identical with respect to residents on the road being opposed to the trail versus others not on the trail being in support of it. He said residents for both projects support a road project with a trail on the road shoulder. Mattson did not support a trail being constructed by taking property from residents. He referenced a road project between Hanover and Rockford where trees were removed due to the required recovery area. With the proposals for the CSAH 12 and CSAH 17 projects, the trails would be within this recovery area. He did not feel the same criteria was being used. Mattson was concerned with taking away resident’s rights and invasion of their privacy. He supported utilizing the shoulder of the road with a rumble strip as a separator. Russek responded that of the resident letters received on CSAH 17, half were in support of the trail and half were not. Sawatzke said there is an area on CSAH 17 where homes are located close to the road and that most of the concern came from this area. He questioned whether a 6’ shoulder could be used in those areas with a trail attached to the road (separated by a rumble strip). Mattice said the Highway Engineer indicated that 6’ shoulders meet State Aid standards. There would be an urban design in these areas. The request to include a 6’ shoulder in designated areas would be handled by the design team (Highway Department). It would then require approval for a design exception through Federal guidelines.

Bob Bauman, Franklin Township, inquired as to the cost of the project. Mattice said if approved, the grant would provide funding for half of the cost of the trail, which is estimated at $500,00 for a paved trail and $394,000 for a non-paved trail. Bauman inquired as to funding for the portion that is not covered by the grant. Sawatzke said the Township will not be responsible for this. Bauman said residents that own the majority of the land where the trail is proposed are not happy about it. He did not feel consideration should be given to opinions of those who do not live on CSAH 17. He also felt Carver County should be contacted on the trail connection. He thought the County may be acting hastily on the grant and asked whether application could be made next year. Russek indicated that it could not be as the road will be under construction at that time. Bauman suggested using a paved shoulder separated by a rumble strip. He said many questions have been raised regarding use of the trail, including use by snowmobiles. The response was that if the trail is not paved, it would be eligible for snowmobile traffic. Mattice said grant funding could not be utilized toward a wider shoulder separated by a rumble strip. Due to the CSAH 17 road upgrade, right of way will be purchased with or without the trail (55’-65’ from centerline).

Don Anderson, resident on the west side of CSAH 17, asked who would maintain the trail and what hours it would be utilized. His main concern was that use would be mainly for a select few. He asked that consideration be given for use of golf carts on the trail so elderly people could use it. He was opposed to the trail and did not want his trees removed which are currently 25’ from the centerline. Russek said the Highway Department will work with Anderson on easements, but the road has not yet been designed. Anderson said his main concern was that use would be for younger people. He was opposed and wanted more questions answered. Anderson questioned who it was that started the trail proposal. Russek said a committee looked at trails County wide and came up with a recommendation in 2002. The proposal for a trail along CSAH 17 was one of the trails designated. The trail would be designed to connect with the Luce Line Trail, which connects to Lake Rebecca Park and back to Delano. Anderson said that use would only be for a select few who ride bike or walk. He said most residents on CSAH 17 would not be able to use the trail for that purpose. Mattice’s interpretation is that an electric golfcart would be a motorized vehicle. Motorized vehicles,with the exception of snowmobiles, would not be allowed on the trail. Sawatzke felt wheelchairs would be an acceptable use. In response to a question by Mattson on insurance, Mattice said MCIT provides insurance coverage for the County. However, 99.9% of what could happen on the trail is covered by the Recreation Immunity Act (at your own risk).

John Czanstkowski, Franklin Township, said government was in place to serve the wishes of people. Although recreational areas are needed, his concern is that most people don’t want the trail. It is a privacy issue. If he lived along CSAH 17, he would not want a lot of people riding by his home. He was opposed to the trail.

Mattson felt counties and cities were following different policies and regulations for trail placements. Eichelberg said the issue before the Board today was whether or not to apply for grant funding for the trail. Eichelberg was in favor of making application. Approval of the trail would be at a future date. Road alignment issues would be addressed at the upcoming public hearing in Delano. Eichelberg said the 8’ road shoulder could be used for recreation but questioned safety aspects of doing so. Mattice said authorization to apply for the grant would allow him to do so. If the grant is awarded, he would be required to come back for Board approval to accept the grant. Notice is generally around July 1st. By that time, the road alignment would be determined which may address some of the issues. Sawatzke questioned the impact of turning down a grant once awarded. Mattice said it would not affect future grant funding awards as long as the County had not signed the acceptance letter. If an acceptance letter is signed and the grant is subsequently declined, the funding cannot be used for the next qualified project.

Mattson said that residents along CSAH 12 would sign off if the shoulder were used as the trail. Residents do not have a problem with the road design. With the wetland and two bridges, he felt this was the most inconvenient area for a trail in the County. He said he could go along with the grant application for CSAH 17 if the County were not locked into the project. Mattson was not in support of a trail which would take people’s property.

Heeter echoed Eichelberg’s position on the grant application. The design of CSAH 17 was not known at this point but the grant decision needed approval today. The decision before the Board was not where the trail should be placed but whether the County should apply for the grant funding. She felt the Board owed it to the taxpayers to do so. Sawatzke felt an official response was needed from Franklin Township. The design of CSAH 17 may help to alleviate some of the concerns. Either way, the County would have to fund $200,000 for the path. He said 8’ shoulders along CSAH 17 would provide safety that is not present there today.

Eichelberg said he serves on the Parks Board and that the County-wide trail system was set up. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #05-13 authorizing Mattice to apply for grant funding for the CSAH 17 trail. Russek seconded the motion as this was the only opportunity to obtain funding. He said if this were the final vote on the trail, he would be against it. He said the County has the opportunity to work with the residents before acceptance of the grant funding. Mattson said the communication has been poor on the CSAH 12 project. He went along with the grant on that project and said it has resulted in problems. Russek responded that a public comment session was held on the CSAH 17 trail. The CSAH 17 road project will have a public meeting on 3-10-05 in March. The motion carried 3-2 with Sawatzke and Mattson casting the nay votes.

Mattice said at their last meeting, the Board authorized signatures on a purchase agreement for land near Ney Park. At that time, the seller was reluctant to sign the original offer. The original purchase agreement was for 140.12 acres at $7,200/acre. The seller presented a counter offer last Friday for 137.642 acres at a cost of $7,058.33/acre for a total purchase price of $971,522.65. The offer removes one of the four building entitlements from the original purchase agreement. The County match would be reduced by $26,850. Sawatzke moved to authorize signatures on the purchase agreement between Wright County and Henry A. Potter and Judith A. Potter for 137.642 acres at a cost of $971,522.65. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0. The purchase agreement is contingent upon the County receiving grant funds in an amount equal to or greater than 60% of the property according to the appraisal prepared by the County.

Mattice presented a purchase agreement between Wright County and John M. Hasselberg for 31.60 acres near Stanley Eddy Park at a cost of $5,600/acre and includes one building entitlement. The purchase agreement is contingent upon the County receiving grant funding in an amount equal to or greater than 60% of the value of the property according to the appraisal prepared by the County. The grant would require a 40% County match. Sawatzke moved to authorize signatures on the purchase agreement between Wright County and John M. Hasselberg for 31.60 acres near Stanley Eddy Park at a cost of $5,600/acre. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0.

Mattice requested the Board schedule a Public Hearing for the Regional Park Grants for the two property acquisitions just acted upon. The Public Hearing would be held to discuss funding sources, costs, etc. At the end of the Hearing, resolutions would be presented authorizing the grant applications. Sawatzke moved to schedule the Public Hearing on 3-15-05 at 9:30 A.M., seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.

On a motion by Heeter, second by Sawatzke, all moved to appoint Brian Nord to the Central EMS Region Advisory Council and to appoint Rollie Helgeson from the Sheriff’s Department as the alternate.

Bob Bauman extended congratulations to those who testified at the State Capital on methamphetamine. Bauman recently viewed this presentation on Channel 17.

The meeting recessed at 10:40 A.M. and reconvened at 11:05 A.M.

The Wright County Sesquicentennial Program was held commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Wright County. Representatives were introduced from County, City, Township and State Government. Members of the Sesquicentennial Committee include: John Norman, Ruben Bonk, Betty Dircks, Maureen Galvin, Orpha Illstrup, Dan Kiernan, Merle Lane, Claudia Menzel, Arlyn Nelson, Dave Newkirk, Judie Rose, Lois Ward, Ken Rudolph, Leander Wetter, Marian Jameson, and Mike Worcester. Commissioners Dick Mattson and Pat Sawatzke also serve on this Committee.

Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #05-14 acknowledging the 150th Anniversary of the founding of Wright County, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0. Resolutions acknowledging same have been received from approximately ten cities and townships, with more expected soon. Sawatzke read the Proclamation:

RESOLUTION ACKNOWLEDGING THE 150th ANNIVERSARY OF THE FOUNDING OF WRIGHT COUNTY

WHEREAS Wright County was established by an act of the Minnesota Territorial Legislature on February 20, 1855, and;

WHEREAS Wright County is named after Silas Wright, a former Governor, U.S. Representative, and U.S. Senator from New York State, and;

WHEREAS at the time of its creation, Wright County, then covered by the Big Woods, was inhabited by 504 settlers of European ancestry, as well as Native Americans from the Dakota and Winnebago Nations, and;

WHEREAS since that time, Wright County’s rich agricultural history spurred the development of numerous small, diverse communities across the county, and;

WHEREAS today, Wright County is a thriving county of over 100,000 people, comprised of seventeen cities and eighteen townships, and;

WHEREAS Wright County’s future holds great promise due to its outstanding citizens, rich natural resources, beautiful landscape, and proud tradition.

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that Wright County does hereby acknowledge and commemorate the 150th Anniversary of the incorporation of Wright County, which took place on February 20, 1855. (End of Resolution)

Fred Naaktgeboren, Chair of the Wright County Mayor’s Association, provided examples of current and historic urban legends in Buffalo which have proven to be untrue. He said these legends will continue and are one of the reasons cities exist. He looked forward to celebrating that part of the County’s 150th Anniversary.

Ralph Ordorff, Chair of the Wright County Township Officers Association, provided history on the establishment and organization of townships.

Gerald Woodley spoke on behalf of U.S. Senator Norm Coleman. He read and presented a letter from Senator Coleman congratulating the citizens of Wright County on the 150th Anniversary. The letter referenced the establishment of the County in 1855 and the settlement in the Big Woods. Agriculture still comprises 75% of the land but the use is changing due to labor force choosing the growing communities of Wright County to call home. With this growth, he felt it was important that citizens seek to actively preserve its heritage and history. He cited the Wright County Historical Society, the Fairhaven Mill, the Chatham Township Hall, and the exhibits at the County Fair in Howard Lake as examples of keeping citizens and visitors connected to the past. Senator Coleman also recognized the high quality of service provided by Wright County government. The letter ends by extending wishes for continued success and prosperity in the future.

Mark Matuska read a Congressional Record dated 2-15-05 whereby Honorable Mark R. Kennedy of the House of Representatives honored the 150th Anniversary of Wright County. The Congressional Record reflects the County’s establishment on February 20, 1855 which was three years prior to Minnesota becoming the 32nd State. The Big Woods, as Wright County was called then, was inhabited by 504 pioneers from across Europe, as well as Native Americans from the Dakota and Winnebago Nations. The Record describes the land, farming, and the impact of the railroad on the County. Today, the County has a population of over 100,000 and is one of the fastest growing areas in Minnesota. The Big Woods eventually was named Wright County in honor of Silas Wright, a former Congressman, Senator and Governor from the State of New York. Buffalo was established as the County Seat in 1873. There are nearly 2800 acres of land devoted to the 30 County parks, as well as 298 lakes. The Record ends by honoring Wright County as a place rich in Minnesota history and culture.

Judie Rose, Sesquicentennial Committee member, provided a history on the naming of Wright County after Silas Wright and the Wright County War of 1859.

Betty Dircks, Wright County Historical Society, read minutes of the first several meetings of the Wright County Board of Commissioners. The first meeting was held on April 9, 1855.

Arlyn Nelson, Sesquicentennial Committee member, spoke about the move of the County Seat from Monticello to Buffalo.

Franklin Denn, Monticello Township Chair, said Monticello played an important part of the development of the County. He spoke of the Monticello prairie and how it started as a river town. When the County Seat changed from Monticello to Buffalo, records were left with the Township. He felt today was the time to turn these records over to the Historical Society for proper care. He presented to Betty Dircks dockets of the Justice of the Peace for Wright County from 1856 to 1885. Also turned over to Dircks were Plat Maps from 1894 and 1915.

John Norman, Sesquicentennial Committee Chair, said the Committee has been meeting for the past two months organizing activities commemorating the 150th Anniversary of Wright County. One of those is today’s Program. Another will be the Wright County Sesquicentennial Celebration Day on 6-25-05 at the Wright County Heritage Center (10:00 A.M. - 4:00 P.M.). Some of the activities will include ethnic dancers and food vendors, arts/crafts demonstrations, and farm machinery and black smithing exhibits. The Committee may also hold tours of County historical sites.

John Wetter said he has almost finished with the design of the Wright County Historical Society website (www.wrighthistory.org). This website was made possible through the donation to the Historical Society by the Leander Wetter family. This website will feature Sesquicentennial events as well as other future exhibits. The County Board extended thanks to the Wetter family for their contribution to make the website possible.

Ruben Bonk extended thanks to the County Board and County Coordinator for the funding appropriated to the Historical Society and cited the staff that administers the program. He encouraged the public to tour the Historical Society. Each Summer they have visitors from across the United States and several foreign countries. Mattson spoke of the people that founded Wright County Government and the hardships they encountered.

A Sesquicentennial Celebration Reception was held following the Board Meeting.
