Don Mleziva, Human Services Director, presented a retirement plaque to Ellen Dressel for 38 years of service to Wright County. Dressel is retiring from the position of Income Maintenance Division Manager. Dressel started as a Receptionist/Secretary and moved into other positions due to her talents and work ethic. She was recognized for her leadership, vision, motivation, dedication, judgment and expertise. She was described as both commanding and compassionate. Mleziva extended congratulations and thanks. Dressel said it has been an opportunity to work for Wright County and that she would miss her job and co-workers. The Board extended thanks to Dressel for her years of service.

Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, requested approval to increase the Court Services change fund from $100 to $200. The change fund was established in February and it is not adequate. Hiivala provided a copy of the resolution passed in February and asked that a similar resolution be adopted increasing the fund amount. Mattson moved to adopt Resolution #06-66, seconded by Russek. The motion and second were amended to include the following changes to the draft resolution: Change all references of $100 to $200 and change the effective date to 11-08-06. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

A County Ditch 34 update was provided. At the 10-24-06, the County Board discussed a quote from Fyle’s Excavating in the amount of $5,160 for repairs to the Ditch. Russek did not support expending this amount of money due to the pending action by the City to outlet into the Ditch. If that occurs, repairs by the City may be completed. The problems do not affect tillable land. Russek said the property owner who contacted the County on the disrepair did not have a problem with waiting on repairs. Russek moved to not proceed with Ditch repairs at this time. He will contact Fyle’s Excavating to inform them. The motion was seconded by Mattson. Russek said he may have voted in support of the repair if it had been less than $2000. However, there is no water being restricted on the Ditch, it does not affect tillable land, and the property owner feels the repairs can wait. The motion carried 5-0.

A Forfeited Tax Sales Committee meeting was held on 10-16-06. At today’s County Board meeting, Russek stated that a photograph has been provided to the Auditor for the Delano property. Two of the properties in Buffalo were determined to be buildable lots and the others are not. Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, said legal action may be required on the property located in Corinna Township. This action may be necessary to remove people from the property which is in the name of the State. Russek moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0:

A meeting was held on October 16, 2006 in the Auditor/Treasurer conference room to discuss tax forfeited parcels in Wright County. A list of tax-forfeited property was prepared by the Auditor/Treasurer=s staff and assembled in parcel order. The list was reviewed to determine which properties should be site inspected. The County=s parcel viewer system and tax system were used to review each parcel. Based on this meeting, the Auditor/Treasurer was instructed to update the list with the amount of tax-forfeited tax, including special assessments certified to taxes. The Assessor was instructed to contact the City of Buffalo regarding minimum requirements for building purposes. This meeting was reconvened to October 30, 2006. On October 30, 2006 the group met to review the updated list of properties, and the Assessor reviewed specific notes regarding each parcel. Of the list of tax-forfeited property, several properties were selected for site inspection. The properties in Buffalo were reviewed on the 30th. The property in Delano would be photographed by Commissioner Russek, and the property in Corinna Township would be reviewed at a later date after discussion with the Attorney’s office. (End of Forfeited Tax Sales Committee Minutes)

The claims listing was discussed. Hiivala referenced a claim on Page 22, City of Cokato ($235,058.32). The expenditure was previously approved by the Board. Next week, Hiivala will ask the Board to approve the transfer of this amount from the Capital Project Fund to the Road & Bridge Fund to cover the expenditure. Mattson referenced claims on Pages 19 & 25 for tank pumping services for Highway and Parks. In checking with the Parks Administrator, it was explained that the difference in cost is due to tank size. Mattson referenced a claim on Page 27, KUE Contractors ($265,145.00). Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, said this is the first payment for the new shop building. Mattson referenced claims on Page 32, Buffalo Bituminous ($3,315) and Wright County Highway Dept. ($70,458.85) for the CSAH 12 bike path project. Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, stated that payment is for the portion completed this year. Once payment is made, the County will receive 50% reimbursement from the grant program. Any work completed to the north of this area will involve grant funding from July. Mattson will provide to Mattice copies of information he obtained from Meeker County on Federal guidelines which prohibit steep inclines on paths. Mattice said when CSAH 12 is completed in 2009-2010, the engineering department will take grade design standards into account. On a motion by Mattson, second by Russek, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit.

Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, provided a draft invitation to a Conservation Corridors Meeting, scheduled for 11-27-06 at the Wright County Government Center. He also provided an invitation list and agenda for review. As a first step towards creating a 4-County Parks, Trails and Open Space Plan (Wright, Sherburne, Isanti & Chisago) Wright County will host this meeting to help identify important target areas. This was provided as an informational item.

Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, requested approval of a revised resolution authorizing the Wright County Surveyor to prepare a ROW plat for CSAH 17 & CSAH 157 from South County Line to the South limits of the City of Delano. The County previously adopted Resolution #05-42 in August. By virtue of an agreement with Hennepin County, they are now responsible for ROW and construction costs on their side of the County line. The revised resolution will authorize the Wright County Surveyor to complete a joint ROW plat that will be recorded in both counties. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #06-67, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Fingalson requested approval of Agreement #90376-R with Mn/DOT for lighting construction on TH 24 and presented a draft resolution. Total County cost is $27,159.44. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #06-68, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Fingalson said Cooperative Agreement No. 06-55 with the City of Monticello for a portion of CSAH 75 was previously tabled because of the uncertainty of annexation. He has since met with the Monticello Township and they have passed a resolution of support for annexation into the City. The City and Township will enter into a joint agreement. The annexation process through the State may take several months. Fingalson recommended approval of the Agreement, which had been previously approved by the City pending Board approval and annexation approval. Sawatzke moved to approve the Agreement, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0. Fingalson recommended approving the City’s request to remove a median allowing full access to a developer. Since the Agreement has been approved by both parties and annexation is proceeding, he felt they should be allowed to remove the median through the ROW permit process. The County would draft hold harmless language regarding crashes. Sawatzke said the developer was told by the City this would happen if a contribution of $15,000 was made toward the interchange project. Fingalson said past traffic counts were 10,000/day and that area has now reduced to 1,500/day. Sawatzke moved to approve the recommendation and to authorize the County to issue a ROW permit. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 5-0.

Fingalson requested approval of a resolution granting the request for variance from State Aid operations. This relates to the Silver Creek Township Bridge project. Bids were opened prior to final State Aid approval in order to facilitate the bridge replacement in the Fall of 2006. A formal appearance before the State Aid Variance Committee by the County Engineer is now necessary in order to complete the funding requirements. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #06-69, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, presented a draft resolution relating to bonding for the Park Terrace Assisted Living Project, as proposed by Elim Care Inc. The Board previously held two Public Hearings. The resolution relates to the sale of $7.56 million in revenue bonds. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #06-70, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote. This project has no cost implications to the County.

At the 10-24-06 County Board Meeting, a Public Hearing was held to consider a request by ISD #2687, Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted, to outlet storm water from its planned new School site into County Ditch #10. The Board then directed Asleson to draft Findings consistent with approval of the request. At today’s meeting, the draft Findings and Order were presented for approval. Asleson highlighted portions of the document: Page 1, Section 4, reflects that the Ditch system has the necessary capacity; Page 1, Section 6, states that the land is part of a natural watershed and has always drained to the Ditch; Page 1, Section 9, reflects that the parcel has been among the assessed and benefited acreage on the Ditch; Page 2, Item 1, states ISD #2687 is permitted to use the Ditch as an outlet for storm water; Page 2, Item 2, states ISD #2687 is not responsible for payment of an outlet fee based upon steps taken to reduce runoff; and Page 2, Item 3, says ISD #2687 is responsible for sharing in the costs of future repair and maintenance of the Ditch. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #06-71 adopting the Findings & Order, seconded by Mattson. With regard to water flow, the rate will be reduced but there will be more volume. Asleson said the flow may be longer after a heavy rain but the rate of water should be reduced. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Chantill Kahler Royer, Bolton & Menk, Inc., said the City of Montrose is planning to prepare an AUAR (Alternative Urban Area-wide Review) to guide anticipated potential future growth and development in the City of Montrose. The AUAR will analyze the impacts and mitigation measures associated with future single-family residential, multi-family residential, industrial and commercial development. The proposed area encompasses Marysville, Franklin and Woodland Townships. The Townships do not object to the preparation of the AUAR. As the land use authority for the Townships, the Wright County Board needs to take formal action to allow the City to act as the RGU (Responsible Government Unit) for the AUAR. The AUAR would be completed at no cost to the County or Townships. Montrose Mayor Charlie Nelson was also present for discussion. Mattson moved to approve the AUAR process for the Montrose area, seconded by Russek. Russek said correspondence reflects that two Townships involved approved of the AUAR and Franklin Township did not object. Sawatzke questioned whether approval would grant the City to be the LGA for the area, making them the RGU as it pertains to the AUAR. Kahler Royer responded that it would. Sawatzke questioned whether it would grant them any other role or responsibility. Kahler Royer stated the RGU status would only be authorized in preparation of the AUAR document. Tom Salkowski, Planning & Zoning Administrator, said their understanding is that this is purely an environmental study and it does not give the City authority to do anything outside of the City limits. Kahler Royer further explained that the AUAR is a form of environmental review similar to an EAW which is required of certain developments that meet the threshold set by the Environmental Quality Board. An AUAR is an EAW on a large scale. Wildlife, wetland and human impacts are studied in a developing area. Once completed, the AUAR is sent for review by such agencies as the County, Townships, DNR, Army Corp of Engineers and Mn/DOT. The City would then try to incorporate comments from these agencies and finds ways to mitigate them. The AUAR serves as a planning document to address growth. Sawatzke referenced the maps and inquired why developed areas are not contiguous. Kahler Royer said this type of development is not generally the plan. She could not comment on the request and approval to do so. In the future, the plan would be to have one contiguous area and to avoid spot development. Mayor Nelson said Woodland Township supported that annexation. There is an Orderly Annexation Agreement. The motion carried 5-0.

A Building Committee meeting was held on 10-25-06. Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes and recommendations, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0:

Add 911 Dispatch Cameras To County’s Camera Surveillance System. Two cameras are not on the County’s camera surveillance system and are monitored by Dispatch. One camera is located in the hallway that services Sheriff and Jail, and the other on the west side of the building. The request is to add the two cameras onto the network, allowing those areas to be monitored from the network. A quote was received from Russell’s Lock & Key in the amount of $1,284.88, which will include repair of the camera on the west side of the building. The current controller has capacity for these cameras. Recommendation: Approve request with funding from Budget 100, Site Improvement line item.

Secure Video Conferencing Equipment, Room 153. In June 2006, the equipment was approved to be installed in Conference Room 153. Swing requested authorization to hire Ernst Construction to secure the equipment at an estimated cost of $200.00. This would allow security of the equipment and still allow the equipment to be portable as intended. County Policy prohibits such action without approval, as it would place holes in the wall of the Conference Room. The IT Department would take charge of the security and scheduling of the equipment. Recommendation: Authorize request with funding from the Information Technology Department budget. (End of Building Committee Minutes)

A Technology Committee meeting was held on 10-25-06. Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes and recommendations, seconded by Russek. Mattson questioned whether the items discussed were budgeted. Heeter said the Storage Area Network was not budgeted and the Board will wait until 2007 to see the balance of the Capital Improvement line item. With regard to the phone switch items, these were not budgeted. Some department’s phone line item was decreased during the 2007 budget sessions. The motion carried 5-0:

Storage Area Network. The Storage Area Network was proposed as a Capital Improvement item in the 2007 IT Budget proposal and also discussed at the 8-02-06 Technology Committee Of The Whole Meeting. This is considered to be a key component contributing to the 2007 objective of enhancing the integrity of the County’s network. Computer Integration Technologies assisted in a cost-benefit assessment, evaluation of different SAN manufacturers, and cost estimates. With the San Network there is one storage area, eliminating the costs associated with individual disks. Enhanced data security is realized through the replication of data. Cost is $170,000. Swing requested commitment to plan for the SAN in the 2nd Quarter, 2007. Project plans for 2007 are contingent upon this commitment. The 2007 IT Budget was submitted in anticipation of the SAN and if not approved, IT will have to re-examine their budget to see how needs for next year will be affected. Discussion led to expenditures from the Capital Improvement line item. Norman proposed that the Finance/Capital Improvement Committee become active. The Capital Improvement Software Package will be a useful tool to review needs for the one and five year time frames. Norman was unsure of the Capital Improvement account balance and encumbrances. In previous years, the County has relied on turn back dollars from General Revenue accounts as a revenue source for the Capital Fund. However, there have been years when the General Revenue budget had a negative balance. If the SAN is funded from the Site Improvement line item, that would be 57% of the budget. The County will not know the balance of the Capital Improvement line item until February, 2007 after accounts have been reconciled. Recommendation: The Committee supports the commitment to the SAN with the funding source to be determined at a later date.

Phone Switch Items For 2007. The items are proposed to support the 2007 phone growth and to improve the phone system monitoring and support. The total cost is $12,823 and cost will be distributed to departments based upon phone usage percentages. Caller Identification (name) is proposed and was supported by the Leadership Team. This enhancement is being provided by Qwest at no additional cost. With regard to monitoring, the Government Center and HS Center are on one system and Public Works on another. The proposed monitoring equipment will allow the vendor to monitor Public Works as well. A question was posed on cost percentages charged to departments, whether it was based upon usage or by headsets. It was clarified that charges are based upon true usage. Use of cell phones may decrease usage of department phones, but the department would then realize costs associated with cell phones. Cost percentages are charged to Court Administration and Law Library as well. With regard to the 2007 budget, departments did not budget for phone switch items. Heeter noted that the phone line item was reduced to the bare minimum in a number of budgets and that line item may be exceeded. Recommendation: Authorize the purchase of the phone switch items as outlined at a total cost of $12,823.

MCCC-Nazca Contract. A contract was signed in September, 2004 with MCCC to proceed with Nazca for a web portal agreement. Nazca has failed to perform. The Land Records Technology Committee recommendation is for no future work to be performed with Nazca even if Nazca were to offer concessions. The statement to MCCC was revised to read: “Wright County acknowledges that no contract exists between Nazca and MCCC, does not wish to proceed further with any type of contract with Nazca, and accordingly expects to receive the same offer that Nazca has provided to Morrison and Chisago counties - the recovery of 50% of its funds paid to Nazca or $36,227.94.” Wright County has expended $72,456 to Nazca over a two-year period. The total contract is $120,760 which Nazca wants the County to pay. The largest areas of concern were support, maintenance and the additional expenditure of $48,000. Swing did not recommend proceeding with Nazca. Norman referenced contract language allowing for cancellation of the contract with Nazca and questioned whether reimbursement would be sought from MCCC or Nazca. Swing stated that Nazca agreed to cancellation for convenience. However, MCCC’s legal counsel has filed a letter citing breach of contract due to performance issues. Paperwork and intellectual rights to those documents are still in question. Carver County has elected to remain with Nazca as they have paid 100%. Other counties, such as Hennepin County, are working with MCCC on their own. Asleson hoped that MCCC would take charge of the breach of contract suit. MCIT will probably not cover a claim arising out of this issue. The County is pursuing a new concept for land records portal development through several vendors. Systems will be incorporated as they arise. Norman questioned the presence of contracts with these vendors, in an effort to avoid a similar situation in the future. Agreements with vendors should be reduced to writing reflecting the scope of work and the time frame. Nelson stated that specific contracted tasks to integrate systems have not been identified at this time. This issue was provided as an informational item.

Record Management Workgroup Report. The recommendation from the 9-13-06 Technology Committee was to support the concept of records management planning and the records management position. A work group was formed to look at space options and records management costs. The group proposes two options:

• Construct a 2000 square foot records center above the planned mechanical room of the new Law Enforcement Center. Consider 16 foot ceilings to allow for a mezzanine design (similar to Anoka County’s Record Center). Expand the existing Record Center (now in the Annex basement south wing) into the main area of the Annex basement in 2007. Hire Record Management Manager January 2008. Move Annex basement center to new quarters when available in 2009 or 2010.

• Commit to locating the Record Center to what is now the 1st floor recreational area of the Jail once this area is vacated in 2009. Expand the existing Record Center (now in the Annex basement south wing) into the main area of the Annex basement in 2007. Hire Record Management Manager January 2008. Move Annex basement center to new quarters when available in 2009 or 2010.

Sheriff Department records for years 1-10 will be located at the new LEC. Years 11-25 will be located in the Records Center. Each County Department has a Records Retention Schedule which was developed by Patty Zimmerman. Currently, four departments utilize the Records Center (Human Services, Sheriff, Attorney and Court Administration). Norman and Swing made site visits to other record centers. Swing supported centralizing the records management function allowing for the pooling of space, staff and security. The Records Management position would be responsible for the Records Center as well as auditing/assisting departments on records management. Swing offered the suggestion of housing the Records Center, the IT Department and the computer training room in the current Jail (once vacated). This would offer a centralized location for these services and provide additional security to those functions. Howell stated that after the move has been made to the new Jail/LEC, the current Jail will be operated as a Day-Jail. Access issues would need to be addressed with housing IT functions in this area. Heeter did not support the Records Center being located in the current Jail if that area would be demolished in the future. Norman stated that when construction commences on the new Jail/LEC, the County Board will need to proceed into strategic planning for the space being vacated. The Space Plan was previously updated by staff. He suggested that the Administration Department proceed with completing a staffing analysis. The goal would be to have the information compiled over the next 3-6 months and presented to the Capital Improvement/ Finance Committee. Recommendation: Direct the Administration Department to update the County staffing analysis and refer this item to the Capital Improvement/Finance Committee.

Use Of Portable Devices. Swing presented a draft policy statement which incorporates suggested changes from the Technology and Leadership Team meetings. It was clarified that “Use of Portable IT Devices, Cellular Phones” relates only to the connectivity of the cellular phone to the County network. It was decided that the draft policy should be changed to include “Cameras-relating to connectivity to the County network only.” The following language was previously added to the draft under Wireless, “Wireless connectivity to the County’s network via cellular must comply with the use of the IT Department’s established cellular vendor for connectivity, Sprint-Nextel.” Recommendation: Support the draft as presented with the one revision. (End of Technology Committee Minutes)

On a motion by Eichelberg, second by Russek, all voted to cancel the 12-05-06 County Board Meeting due to attendance of the Board at the AMC Conference.

A Joint Meeting was held with the City of Monticello on 10-23-06 to discuss the potential acquisition of YMCA property. At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0. A summary of the minutes follows: The meeting was held in closed session, after which a draft Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was reviewed. Once approved, the MOU would be an official document that could be used to make a purchase offer. It would not be used as a Joint Powers Agreement. A revised MOU will be presented to both entities. No action was taken to authorize signatures on the draft.

Richard Norman, County Coordinator, presented a summary of responses received from Townships relating to their preference on when a Joint Meeting with the County should be held. Mattson felt each Township should be contacted to find out one or two issues they would like to discuss. An agenda could then be drafted for the meeting. Norman said when this issue was first discussed in September, the idea was to discuss Planning & Zoning procedures and issues with Township representatives. He questioned whether this was still the focus of the Agenda. Mattson responded that he would prefer an open discussion not just focused on Planning & Zoning issues. It was the consensus of the Board that discussion of possible agenda items should be placed on the Township Association’s first quarterly meeting in January.

The purchase of PID #103-011-000050 has been accepted. This property is located west of the Government Center. The realtor for the sellers was contacted and the purchase price of $165,000 was accepted. Asleson said the County has a purchase agreement in hand, but it is not signed. The realtor is trying to locate the abstract so the closing date may have to be flexible. The proposed closing date reflected on the purchase agreement is 11-15-06. There is also a provision to use a closing company. However, Asleson felt he should draw up the necessary documentation if the County pays cash. Norman stated the action sought is to authorize signatures on the purchase agreement and to direct the Auditor’s Office to draft the earnest money check in the amount of $1000. Sawatzke moved to sign the purchase agreement consistent with the verbal offer made by the County Board, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0. The 2006 taxes will be prorated. Asleson will contact the Assessor on the 2007 payable taxes to see whether an abatement is possible.

Correspondence was received from MCIT requesting the designation of the official voting delegate and alternate at the 2006 Annual Meeting on 12-04-06 in Rochester. Norman said the past makeup of AMC delegates to the Annual Conference were the five County Commissioners, the Highway Engineer, the Auditor/Treasurer, and the County Coordinator. In previous years, Norman was designated as the Voting Delegate and Hiivala as the Alternate. On a motion by Sawatzke, second by Russek, all voted to designate Richard Norman, County Coordinator as the Delegate and Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, as the Alternate.

Russek moved to adopt Resolution #06-72 authorizing signatures on the Office of Justice Programs, MN Dept. of Public Safety, JABG Grant for 2007. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Correspondence was received from Functional Industries requesting support of their Federal Transit Administration, Section 510, FY 2007 Grant Application. Functional Industries is applying for funding to assist with the purchase of a medium sized bus configured to accommodate up to four wheelchairs and eight seated passengers. They also applied for these funds in 2005 and the County offered a letter of support at that time. That letter reflected signatures by both the County Board and Human Services Board Chairs. However, there will not be adequate time for the Human Services Board to meet. Sawatzke moved for Wright County to support the grant application by Functional Industries and to send a letter of support signed by the County Board Chair (similar to that sent in 2004). The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 5-0.

The meeting was recessed at 10:31 A.M. A Closed Session was held to discuss PID #202-000-172203.

The meeting was reconvened and adjourned at 11:00 A.M.
