Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, presented a request by Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, to continue the relationship with Kurt Deter, Rinke-Noonan, on County Ditch 20. Asleson referenced past Board direction that they wanted to retain Deter on issues relating to county ditches in urbanized areas. Asleson said it worked very well to have Deter involved with Ditch 33. The proposal by the City of Maple Lake is to outlet water into County Ditch 20. A public hearing on this request is scheduled for 10-04-05. Sawatzke moved to authorize retaining Kurt Deter on County Ditch 20 issues. Expenses will be tracked and paid for by the City and/or developer. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 4-0.

Hiivala received correspondence from the Quick Shop 66 in Delano appealing the suspension of their tobacco license and fine. Asleson said this is the third offense this establishment has received in a 24 month period. A letter was sent to them reflecting the fine, a seven day suspension of their license beginning 10-01-05, and the appeal process. The Tobacco Ordinance does not specify a publication period for the Ordinance Hearing. Until the appeal is heard, the suspension will hold. Russek moved to schedule the Ordinance Hearing for Quick Shop 66 in Delano for 9-27-05 at 10:30 A.M., seconded by Sawatzke, carried 4-0.

Eichelberg moved to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, seconded by Russek. Russek noted a claim on page 7, Phillips 66 Quick Shop-Delano ($76.59). The claim description was “253 miles.” Hiivala said the claim reflects payment is for cars washes for August. The motion and second were amended to approve with the change. The motion carried 4-0.

Jim Mulder, AMC Executive Director, provided an AMC Legislative Update. The AMC Policy Committee Meetings were held about two weeks ago in New Ulm.

County Efforts-Hurricane Katrina: The most recent update is that evacuees will not be sent to Camp Ripley as planned. That plan would have involved county employees providing services at that location. It is still possible that 1000+ evacuees will come to Minnesota but most have a connection (relatives, friends). The State is asking counties to seek more permanent housing solutions. The Governor is in the process of attempting to get waivers for a number of regulations for social and health programs. The residency requirement is the most critical. AMC is encouraging counties to organize gift giving amongst employees for relief efforts. The National Association of Counties has developed a County Relief Fund for the public employee sector in the affected area to assist those who have not had time to work on their own issues. AMC has set up a process to transfer the funds. The Board of Directors is also looking to donate.

Legislative Sessions. The next session will be during a large political year so Mulder did not envision many new initiatives. The session will commence on 3-03-06, although the hearing process will begin in January. He thought there would be a bonding bill, estimated at $600-$800 million to address transportation and environmental issues. He did not expect much local project bonding. State bonding is tied to its growth rate and the economy of the State is moving forward. However, many are concerned with gas and energy costs. Mulder said they currently have projected a balanced budget and there may be a slight surplus. However, the effects of Hurricane Katrina may have removed this surplus already. If there is a surplus, expenditures may relate to education or clean water.

AMC Policy Committee’s Key Issues:

Transportation: The main focus is that the Legislature is not focusing or dealing with transportation issues. A long-term plan has been established and over $1 billion has been identified in needs. One study reflects the need for $1.8 billion/year for the next 20 years. The Legislature has passed a bill for $330 million/year. The Transportation Policy Committee is seeking solutions. A new Federal Law will provide extra funding on Federal projects but requires matching dollars. Those dollars are diverted from planned projects to projects on a Federal list and these may not be ranked the same. Mulder envisioned more partnerships between counties, cities and the State. Many times, counties advance funding to the State knowing it will be received back in State aid. The State has extended themselves so far that they are now having a hard time meeting all of their financial obligations. There are situations where repayment is delayed. There is concern with cash flow issues and implications. Discussions are taking place on a new revenue stream, possibly through a gas tax.

Clean Water: The State needs to develop a plan on impaired waters. Mulder said they struggled with the Clean Water Legacy Act and Impaired Waters during the last Legislative Session. He said the system was too complicated on how funding was to be raised, expended and tracked. A subcommittee has been formed to work on a plan. The plan will focus on individual systems and may provide low interest or revolving loans.

E-Waste (tv monitors, computers, etc.): This type of waste had been prohibited from landfills effective 7-01-05. This date has been extended to 7-01-06. Sawatzke said that Wright County has a recycling program to accept this type of waste at the Compost Facility. Mulder said that one of the challenges is to provide programs which allow counties some flexibility.

Human Services Policy Committee: Health care is the focus. They are working with the Department of Human Services and Department of Health as providers and purchasers of health care. The Committee will work with the State and Legislature to find innovative ways to manage health care. One of the largest expenditures of the Human Services budget is senior health care. Another issue is the relationship between the State and AMC on the delivery of mental health and disabled services and whether more regional services can be offered.

Eminent Domain: Eminent Domain involves condemning land to place in public infrastructure. A recent court case in Connecticut, called the Kelo Decision, centered on an economic development plan involving a large county that wanted to redevelop. There were a few successful businesses in the area but most plants were empty. The area was used to build a new drug facility. The last eleven landowners property values were handled through eminent domain. Although news reports reflected that the government took the properties, they were actually purchased and sold to someone else. Mulder said Minnesota has always been conservative in their approach with eminent domain. AMC will work with the legislature to retain eminent domain for appropriate uses but also to make sure it is not overused.

Environmental Impact Statements and Reviews: This is stemming from a current issue in Kandiyohi County involving a proposed gravel pit. The concern is with the new interpretation of requiring cumulative affects of a project. For example, before a permit is issued, a county may have to provide projected cumulative effects of the pit and any other future pit in the county. Mulder said it is hard to anticipate cumulative affects. Another issue may be whether the county involved is liable for decisions made based on inaccurate projections.

Other: Mulder said about 70 of the 87 Minnesota Counties were represented at the AMC Policy Committee Meetings and that they were very productive meetings. One of the goals is to hold these sessions in various areas to allow counties to see what issues other counties are facing.

Questions:

1. Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, asked Mulder to expand on the implications of the constitutional amendment not passing this year and the education piece that might be needed. Mulder said that the Legislature passed a comprehensive bill that included gas taxes and other pieces, including a constitutional amendment. When the Governor vetoes a bill, the constitutional amendment cannot be vetoed. The amendment reflects that over a course of eight years, there will be a 100% dedication of the motor vehicle sales tax to transportation (highway user trust fund). AMC had questions on the language as it was confusing. He said there are other ways to finance highways, possibly through a gas tax. Over the next few months, the public needs to be educated on the need for these new revenues. If 100% of the motor vehicle sales tax funds are transferred, this equates to $300 million or 1/3 of what is required. Of this amount 40% will be earmarked for transit and the other 60% to roads. There is concern that funding could go to an 80/20 split, with 80% to transit. Mulder did not envision this in the near future. Funding flexibility was desired as the future of transportation is unknown.

2. Richard Norman, County Coordinator, said many counties are struggling with the 2006 budget process as it relates to Recorders fees. He requested that AMC assist counties in working with the appropriate State agency to define the parameters for use of this fee. Mulder said the Fee Bill raised the document recording fees in Minnesota. Of the $45 fee, $10.50 is appropriated to the State. Another $11.00-$11.50 goes to the technical fund for upgrading technology for land records. There is a broad definition on what this involves. The confusion relates to the $10-$11 which is placed into another fund to be used toward counties adhering to processing standards (15 day processing requirement). It is not clear whether these funds can be used in anticipation of problems meeting processing standards or whether they are expended after the problems have been experienced.

Mulder was thanked for the AMC Legislative Update.

Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, attended the 8-29-05 Marysville Township Board Meeting where action was taken to convey the deed from Marysville Township to Wright County for the old Marysville Town Hall Site. As part of their action, it was recommended that the Parks Department maintain the site and the Historical Society maintain the building. Mattson stated that Ruben Bonk, Historical Society, has indicated that the Historical Society is not interested in maintaining the building. Mattice said the building needs paint but the metal roof appears to be in good shape. Doors and windows may need replacement. Discussion followed on the potential of utilizing the building for rental as is done with shelters at County parks. Mattice said he has not been inside of the building to know whether this would be a suitable use. He would also have the Building Inspector determine if it meets public use standards. Sawatzke moved to approve the conveyance of the deed from Marysville Township to Wright County, seconded by Russek, carried 4-0.

At their last meeting, the County Board directed Asleson to revise findings associated with an Order allowing Carlisle Village to outlet water into County Ditch 33. Today, Asleson presented the revised findings. At the recommendation of Kerry Saxton, SWCD, an additional finding (#11) was added. This finding relates to a wetland downstream from Carlisle Village and the requirement for a portion of this development to remain in the watershed to keep the wetland complex viable. Sawatzke moved to authorize the Board Chair’s signature on the Findings and Order, seconded by Russek. Sawatzke inquired as to whether the City should sign the document. Asleson responded that the document follows statute, which reflects the ditch authority orders what will happen on the ditch. If the City does not follow the Order, the County could take enforcement action. As the last condition on the top of page 3, Asleson said the County has experienced approximately $1800 in fees. An additional bill for legal fees is anticipated from Rinke-Noonan for Deter’s attendance at the last Board Meeting. Asleson said the total fees are expected at just over $2000. The motion and second were amended to change Item 5C (Page 2) to read, “That, with respect to this and any future storm water work done by the City in the area, the City will be responsible for the repair and maintenance of that system, with no costs assessed to other landowners on County Ditch 33, unless such landowners further subdivide their property.” The motion carried unanimously.

Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, requested that the Board approve a resolution of final acceptance for Contract 0106 with Buffalo Bituminous, Inc. and to authorize final payment of $76,616.80. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #05-47, seconded by Russek, carried 4-0 on a roll call vote.

Fingalson requested approval of an agreement with Monticello for funding participation and construction improvements to CSAH 18. This project will be let on 9-23-05. Monticello will address approval at their next meeting in two weeks. The County cost participation cap for this project, CP 86-18-061 and CP 86-39-061, is $2 million. It was previously projected at $2.7 to $2.8 million. The $2 million cap will not only involve the previous project let and under construction but the one scheduled for 9-23-05. A suggested change was made under Article 6 reflecting that the traffic signal systems at the end of the freeway ramps will be handled by the City and Mn/DOT (no County involvement). The only County involvement will be for controllers at the intersections of CSAH 75, CSAH 18 and CSAH 39. Sawatzke moved to approve the agreement subject to approval by the City of Monticello, seconded by Russek, carried 4-0.

Fingalson requested the Board take action on two recommendations from the 9-07-05 Transportation Committee Of The Whole Meeting (TCOTW). The first would be to set a letting date for the vehicle storage building. The specifications would be written to allow the maximum amount of storage for the three departments involved at Public Works with the $172,000 available from bonding. This would be a post beam building with alternates for additional 8’ increments and possibly a second smaller equipment storage building. Sawatzke moved to schedule a bid opening for 10-11-05 at 10:00 A.M., seconded by Eichelberg, carried 4-0.

On a motion by Russek, second by Eichelberg, all voted to schedule a TCOTW Meeting for 9-21-05 at 1:00 P.M., Public Works Building. The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the Albertville Truck Station.

Russek moved to adopt Resolution #05-48 rescinding Resolution #05-21 requesting a speed study on CSAH 18 from CSAH 37 in Albertville to Fenning Avenue and School Blvd. in Monticello. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 4-0 on a roll call vote.

Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #05-49 approving a speed zoning resolution for a section of CSAH 18 from CSAH 37 (West Jct) in the City of Otsego to CSAH 19 in the City of Albertville. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 4-0 on a roll call vote.

Asleson brought forth discussion on a sewer hookup for Parcel #215-000-061401, Lon & Julie Voigt. On 5-03-05, the Board approved the request for a hookup for a new residence they are constructing on the west side of Lake Charlotte. The Board conditioned the hookup upon the payment of the 2005 basic trunk charge sum of $10,289.74. The Voigts are questioning additional costs associated with the necessary extension of the 3” sewer main in the Township road. The parcel to the west of the Voigt’s is Charlotte Shores and has been given preliminary plat approval by the Planning Commission. Final plat approval is pending and includes six hookups to the system. One of the conditions for approval includes the responsibility for costs associated with building the 3” main along the Township road. The Voigts have requested this matter come before the Board due to the costs they will experience with extending the line 60’. Asleson assumed the Voigt parcel was part of Phase I and presented a map reflecting this. Also included was correspondence from Bryan Oakley, MFRA, regarding the sewer line in the area. Oakley indicated that once the construction plans were drawn, the project line ended at the Joe Francis property. Francis was originally going to hook up and was allowed to pay $8700 for a sewer stub. Oakley noted that if the Francis property had not been allowed to hook up, the Voigts would have an additional 650’ of pipe to install in order to obtain service. The Voigts have obtained quotes for the extension of the 3” main and are concerned with cost. Russek said with plat approval for the Renstrom property (Charlotte Shores), it would include extension of the 3” main past the Voigt property (at the developer’s expense). He suggested plat approval include the cost the Voigt’s will incur to extend the main. With the delays in plat approval for the Renstrom property, Asleson did not feel the two should be tied together.

Lon Voigt, 945 Hamilton Ave. SE, Buffalo, said he attended one of the final meetings on the Lake Charlotte/Martha sewer project and asked to be placed in Phase I. He purchased the property with plans to construct a new home. He was told that the connection would be in front of his home and fees would occur at the time of the building permit. After construction started, it was discovered that the sewer line was not extended to their property. He said they were not notified of the change and felt they were included in Phase I of the project. Voigt obtained quotes to extend the sewer line. The low quote received to extend the sewer line was from Bursch Brothers Excavating for $4919. The total cost to connect his home will be $30,000-$33,000. They had been assessed $16,000 to connect another home in the area and projected that connection costs for this home would be around $20,000.

Sawatzke said that although the County Board will make the decision on whether to allow some sort of discount to Voigt, it does not involve County money. If the developer of the Renstrom property does not pay the cost, it would be subsidized by others who live in the sewer district. Asleson said the main line has been paid for. Any basic trunk charges collected will be placed in a fund for the district to use for future maintenance costs. If a discount were given, it would not affect the viability of the district. This action would not set a precedent as the situation involves confusion on whether the property was included in Phase I. The rules for Phase 2 reflect that, “When connecting, Phase 2 lots pay the same costs (adjusted for inflation) as Phase I, plus all costs of necessary extensions.”

Julie Voigt questioned whether the extension to their home had already been paid for as part of Phase I. Because of Oakley’s comments, she sent a letter to Russek asking whether any properties requested not to be stubbed in as part of Phase I. The only example provided by Oakley was Joe Francis. Voigt said the Francis property was stubbed for hookup. Sawatzke responded that it would be natural for all properties along the line to be stubbed. Oakley informed Asleson that the plans had not changed since the final engineering plans in the Fall, and that the line ended on the Francis property. Asleson felt confident that the contractor was not paid for the Voigt property. Discussion followed on review of past Public Hearing and Board Meeting minutes. Asleson said that conversations took place between the residents and MFRA that would not be documented, as these discussions happened in the field.

At 10:40 A.M., the Board Meeting recessed for an opportunity to research past minutes. The meeting reconvened at 11:18 A.M. Review of past minutes did not produce additional information on whether the Voigt property was part of Phase I or Phase II. Public hearing minutes did not reflect the Voigt’s making comment. Eichelberg was willing to support having the work completed at a cost of $4919, funded from the sewer fund, with possible reimbursement from the developer of the Renstrom property. Russek suggested the Voigts fund 1/7 of the $4919 cost, with 6/7 of the cost to be funded from the sewer fund and reimbursed by the developer when the Renstrom property develops. Asleson said the Voigts should pay the contractor directly as the County has no contractual arrangement with them. Lon Voigt was unsure whether the bid from Bursch Brothers included a 50’ or 60’ extension. The 10’ extension has been recommended for a shut off valve. Russek said the extra 10’ does not benefit Voigts and supported that cost to be funded by the developer of the Renstrom property.

Russek moved to allow the Voigts to pay the contractor $700 for extending the sewer line (1/7 of the $4919 bid). Anything over this amount, including costs to extend the additional 10’ (from 50’ to 60’), will be paid to the contractor by the Voigts and will be deducted from the $10,289 paid to the County. The costs to extend the sewer line (excluding the $700) will be attached to plat approval of the Renstrom property and collected when that property develops. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 4-0.

A Building Committee Meeting was held on 9-02-05. Russek moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 4-0:

Court Administration Space Issues. The meeting was reconvened from 8-24-05.Engel provided information on design modifications, cost estimates and project schedule.

A. Judges Chambers: The change in design included making the restroom handicap accessible. Water will be accessed below through the Sheriff’s Office. The remodel will follow standards used in other judges chambers, including ceramic tile on the floors and walls. Cost estimate is $15,000-$20,000. Engel suggested bidding the judges chambers as a separate component. However, the bid specifications should reflect that both components are constructed at the same time or inflated bids may be realized. Estimated time frame to complete is 4-6 weeks. This will result in some disruption to staff.

B. Court Administration Office Space Within The Extension Office: It is proposed that Court Administration utilize office space within the Extension Office. File cabinets and partition walls may be used to delineate the separate office areas. Access to court staff located in this area will be through the Extension Office reception area. Anderson said that the use of Conference Room C111 provides the ability to hold evening meetings and access to the Extension Office at the same time. The Committee discussed various options for use of a portion of the 3rd Floor space. It was the consensus that the offices at the east end of the 3rd Floor should be utilized by Extension staff. Recommendation: Approve use of Rooms 322 and 314 on the 3rd Floor by Extension staff members Mary Ann Peterson and Pat Larson. The modular furniture in one room of the Extension Office (former Court Services Director) will be moved to Rooms 322 and 314 on the 3rd Floor. The remaining furniture located in the vacant portion of the Extension Office will be purchased by the State for use by Court Administration staff.

C. Courtroom #6: The public lounge will be converted into a courtroom. The Committee discussed location of metal detectors and the installation of doors in the hallway between Administration and the new courtroom. The consensus was to proceed with a single door for security purposes and due to cost ($1500 more for a double door). The courtroom will have moveable seating to accommodate 5-10 people. Other items will include a public address system, microphones, infrared hearing assist system, suspended tv system, flags, carpeting, and panic buttons. An audio taping system will be installed in the back of the room. Lighting changes may be required. The courtroom walls would be finished similar to Courtroom #1. Engel proposed corian counter top for the judges bench, clerk and witness areas. The cabinets will be finished in a fashion to resemble the wood benches but will be constructed with a less expensive laminate material. Moulton Engineering recommends a new rooftop cooling/ventilation unit. The current unit was installed in the 1970’s. It was felt dual temperature controls should be included if possible because cooling/ventilation for the room next door is also controlled by this unit. An additional security camera may be needed. Mattson referenced the potential of converting this area back to Administration in the future. He wanted costs expended for this conversion to be minimal. Engel said costs associated with the judge’s bench, wiring, and doors with card access are not recoverable. The vending area will no longer exist in this area. During construction, the hallway will not be accessible. The total estimated cost for the project is $50,000-$60,000 plus 30% for soft costs and a 10% contingency fee. SAC/WAC fees will be added for the judge’s restroom. The County’s current ventilation vendor will be used instead of the general contractor for that portion of the project. The estimated time line for the project is 3-4 months. Recommendation: One door will be installed in the hallway between Administration and the new courtroom. This door will be card access only in both directions for use by employees only. Signing will be used to instruct the public in this regard. The metal detectors will be placed on the first floor near the steps going up to Court Administration. A card access door will be installed for entrance by the Judge and staff and a locked door will be installed for access by the public. The public payphone will be removed to allow additional seating in the hallway. The drinking fountain and in-house phone will remain in this area. The recommendation includes scheduling a bid letting date of 10-11-05 at 9:30 A.M. (End of Building Committee Minutes)

Richard Norman, County Coordinator, presented a draft resolution establishing the draft 2006 Budget and draft 2006 Certified Taxable Levy. The levy can no longer increase after adoption of the resolution today. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #05-50, seconded by Russek, carried 4-0 on a roll call vote. The resolution follows:

RESOLUTION 05-50

BE IT RESOLVED that the Wright County Board of Commissioners hereby establishes draft 2006 budgets as follows:

GENERAL REVENUE $36,595,644

ROAD & BRIDGE 16,033,655

HUMAN SERVICES 20,592,600

DEBT SERVICE 3,772,042

LAKE PULASKI L.I.D . . . . . . . 15,600

TOTAL BUDGET $ 77,009,541

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Wright County Board of Commissioners hereby establishes a Draft 2006 Certified Taxable Levy of $34,605,487. (End of Resolution)

The Board discussed the mileage rate reimbursement rate. Information received from the IRS reflects they have increased their mileage reimbursement rate to $.485/mile for all business miles from 9-01-05 to 12-31-05. Mattson said that during budget discussions for 2006, the County decided to follow the Federal Guidelines for reimbursement. On a motion by Russek, second by Eichelberg, all voted to increase the County’s mileage reimbursement rate to $.485/mile, effective 9-15-05 for the remainder of 2005.

Eichelberg referenced correspondence from the Metropolitan Council rescheduling the Regional Policy Initiative Conference. The Conference was previously scheduled for 9-07-05 and has been moved to 10-26-05. Eichelberg felt either a representative from the County Board or Planning & Zoning should attend. Eichelberg moved to authorize attendance, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 4-0.

Eichelberg and Mattson provided brief updates on issues addressed at the at the New Ulm Policy Committee Meetings.
