Gloria Gooler, Administrative Confidential Secretary, presented the Auditor/Treasurer items as Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, was not present at the Board Meeting. Hiivala was selected as one of thirty newly elected officials to attend the Introduction to Property Tax Administration training at the MN Department of Revenue. Gooler requested that a Deferred Compensation Committee be scheduled to discuss an employee hardship request. Heeter moved to schedule a Deferred Compensation Committee Meeting for 2-13-07 at 8:30 A.M. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried unanimously.

On a motion by Eichelberg, second by Heeter, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit.

Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, presented a draft resolution supporting a grant application for trail maintenance equipment. During the 2007 budget hearings, partial funding was given for trail maintenance equipment. On 11-21-06, the Board granted approval to apply for grant funding. If approved, the grant will require a 50/50 match by the County. Notification on the grant award should be received by July. The total amount projected to purchase the equipment is around $110,000-$120,000. These funds will be expended whether or not the grant is awarded. Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #07-08, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

A Building Committee Meeting was held on 1-24-07. At today’s County Board Meeting, Mattson moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0:

WEST PARKING LOT DESIGN. Hayes presented the design drawing of the proposed parking lot and explained that with the new design, there would be a total of 241 parking spaces. Norman stated that he asked Otto & Associates to lay out the design so that the Committee could view the lay out of the entire parking lot as well as see how the flow of traffic would move in and out of the space. Mattson expressed concern for saving the existing trees on-site during construction. Russek

asked if there are any trees around the existing house that are worth saving. Al Buskey, Building Maintenance Supervisor, stated that a few really nice 8-10’ blue spruce trees on the site. Hayes stated that Mark Mattice, Parks Administrator, has indicated that they are limited to what they can move with the tree spade they have. Russek asked if the large spruce trees could be used elsewhere around the parking lot. Hayes stated that the parking lot needs to be cleared. Norman clarified that for security reasons in conjunction with the security cameras, the parking lot will need to be clear from obstruction. Mattson suggested moving the trees to the Jail/LEC site. Buskey stated that the County would need to water the trees and due to the sandy soil-base at the Jail/LEC site, it will be difficult to keep the trees amply watered. Mattson proposed that Jim Sawatzke could move some big trees. Hayes stated that we need a Conditional Use Permit (C.U.P.) submitted to the City. Norman stated that Otto & Associates would submit the C.U.P and represent the County at the hearing. Hayes clarified that Otto would charge an hourly fee to present the plan. Norman clarified that the plan would be reviewed by the City Planning Commission and then moved to the City Council. Norman stated that he’d like to keep this moving so that the parking lot can be built in the spring. Hayes confirmed that Otto will take care of the electrical design as part of the complete design process, as well as act on our behalf as our representative. Hayes stated that Pfeifer Construction will remove the house in February, 2007. Buskey stated that the asbestos test has been completed but hasn’t seen the report of their findings. Norman stated that the County needs a written report on file. Hayes clarified that Pfiefer will need to get a permit from the City and the asbestos report would be part of the permit process. Norman asked the Committee if they felt two egresses leading out onto 2nd Street NW were needed. Hayes stated that an existing exit is already located on 2nd Street NW and the new design would allow for an additional egress to be constructed. Mattson asked if the parking lot would consist of a one-way design throughout. Norman stated that arrows could easily be painted onto the pavement if this would prove to be a beneficial design element. Mattson is in favor of a one-way flow of traffic throughout. (i.e. Wal-Mart parking lots with angled parking) Norman clarified that the parking lot is not laid out for angle parking. Russek stated that we wouldn’t gain an extra row by angling the parking and didn’t foresee a need for the angled parking. Norman demonstrated that the rows along the 1st Avenue entrance could be reserved for County vehicles. Hayes stated that there is already reserved parking for Dispatch, Assessor and Court Services. Norman stated that Jail and Dispatch would like additional reserved parking. Norman asked Hayes if Otto & Associates have submitted a cost estimate for the project yet. Hayes stated that he doesn’t remember seeing their projected numbers. Norman stated that when Otto draws this up for bidding, they should provide us with a cost estimate. Russek stated that he thinks the layout looks good and feels that we do need two accesses. Russek asked which access would make the most sense to eliminate if required by the City. Norman suggested leaving both accesses in and leave it up to the City to decide. Mattson asked if there are any concerns about the current parking lot layout. Hayes stated that the current lot is properly laid out. Russek proposed that if the City requires that we eliminate an access along 2nd Street NW, we could shift the parking to allow for a centered exit/entrance. Russek asked if the large spruce tree along 1st Ave would be saved. Hayes stated yes, however there is concern for how to keep the tree safe during the construction process. Russek stated that there shouldn’t be too much damage to its roots, as the root base of evergreen trees are fairly shallow and contained. RECOMMENDATION: Approve the design layout and request that Otto and Associates handle the C.U.P. process for the County as well as provide a cost estimate of the project. Contact Jim Sawatzke to determine if the existing large spruce trees can be moved and used elsewhere. (End of Building Committee Minutes)

The Board considered a request from the City of St. Michael for the transfer of Parcel #114-500-134300 from the County to the City. The parcel is surrounded by City-owned land, which is occupied by ball fields and the City’s wastewater treatment facility. The parcel is 4.82 acres (1.87 useable acres and 2.95 acres of water). In 2005, the City inquired about acquiring the parcel. At that time, the Auditor’s Office mistakenly believed that the parcel was tax forfeit property, held in trust for local taxing districts. On 11-15-05, the Board approved of the City’s application for a State deed. It was discovered that the property had been tax forfeit in the 1960’s and the property was conveyed to the County by the State in 1963. It is not known what the intent of the County Board was at that time nor is it known whether the County paid anything other than a processing fee for the land. The City is still interested in the property and has considered it for a possible canoe landing on the river. Staff is recommending transfer to the City with the understanding that the City would pay any recording or miscellaneous fees. At today’s County Board Meeting, City Administrator Bob Derus was present for discussion. If the City acquires the parcel, the intent would be to use it for public parks and recreation per State Law. The City has one affluent pipe running through the parcel that connects to the wastewater treatment plant. The plant may become larger in the future but Derus did not envision that the parcel would be used for that purpose. Derus said the City previously thought they owned part of the land. Sawatzke moved to transfer Parcel #114-500-134300 to the City of St. Michael for the purpose of public ownership for recreation. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg. Lonnie Davis, Account Clerk/Tax Forfeit Specialist, said the property is in the County’s name and the State is not monitoring the use of it. The property can be conveyed by quit claim deed from the County to the City without any restrictions. Derus confirmed that the motion was acceptable. He said their property is currently used intensely for sports. The long term plan is that the parcel will be a parks facility and the City’s public works garage will be moved to another location. Sawatzke felt the intended use of the land was appropriate. He said if the County felt the City was going to acquire the property and sell it for development, the County would elect to do so instead. The County Attorney’s Office will draft the documents required for conveyance of the property. The motion carried 5-0.

Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, brought forth discussion on a Memorandum of Understanding for the I-94 Implementation Task Force and Resolution of Support for funding. Eichelberg said the Albertville City Council approved this at their meeting on 2-05-07 and the City of Otsego will address it at their next meeting. The City of St. Michael has not decided at this time how they will proceed. Fingalson said it may be premature to act on the Memorandum of Understanding and suggested waiting 1-2 weeks. The Memorandum of Understanding identifies what entities are involved in the I94 Implementation Task Force and the attachments summarize the work that has been completed. Eichelberg and Sawatzke currently serve as the County Board representatives on the Task Force. Fingalson said the attachments to the Memorandum of Understanding reflect that a split diamond with collector distributor routes has been agreed upon. Also included are the general areas of study, the I-94 Implementation Master Plan Schedule, and projects that have been completed by the three Cities, the County and Mn/DOT. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #07-09, Resolution of Support for State and Federal funding for the CSAH 19 & CSAH 37 I-94 Interchange Project. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke. In response to Sawatzke, Eichelberg stated that the City of Otsego has passed a similar resolution of support. Fingalson clarified that the Resolution will be revised to include the City of St. Michael. Eichelberg and Sawatzke agreed the motion will include the change to the Resolution. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote. It was recommended that the Memorandum of Understanding be placed on the 2-20-07 County Board Agenda.

Fingalson presented a R/W Appraisal Schedule for the R/W acquisition on CSAH 19 (from 57th St. to South limits of the City of Albertville SAP 86-619-30). The acquisition of R/W is required for widening purposes to meet State Aid standards for a four-lane urban section and placement of a trail. The approximate 16 parcels involved require independent appraisals to be used as a basis for the purchase price. The Land Value Schedule, completed by Wallace Oien, Certified General Real Property Appraiser, was prepared based on land sales recently completed in the project area. If the Board approves the appraisal rates, offer letters will be forwarded to each parcel owner. Richard Marquette, Right Of Way Agent/Engineering Assistant, said the project involves 16 parcels. The R/W width will be the standard 75’ width on each side of the centerline. Comparable sales of properties within 1.0-1.5 miles of the site were used. The Albertville Outlet Mall has impact on the sales, with some land value at $17-$18/sq. ft. on some of the developed area. The values being presented for approval today were valued on undeveloped land. Marquette recommended approval. Sawatzke moved to approve the R/W Appraisal Schedule as presented, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0.

Fingalson requested approval of a Speed Zoning Resolution for segments of CSAH’s 18, 22, 42 and 8. These roadways have been identified and recommended by Highway Department staff to request that a speed study be completed by Mn/DOT. Speed zoning has not been completed on CSAH’s 18 and 22, and CSAH 18 has a new roundabout area. In response to Eichelberg, Fingalson said not all speed studies are initiated by cities or townships. The cities involved with today’s request have been notified, but Fingalson was unsure whether townships had been notified. Heeter said CSAH 8 is slated in 2007 for improvements as part of the Five-Year Plan. Fingalson said the road will be overlaid. The main reason for the study request relates to the area near the Hasty truck station. With all of the truck movement in that area, he felt Mn/DOT may reduce the speed. When a speed study is completed by Mn/DOT, they complete a study of the entire segment. The study will include Maple Lake where CSAH 8 intersects TH 55. There will also be a study of CSAH 42 in Otsego with the development in that area, including the Target store. Fingalson said when there are major improvements, it is important that the speed is established. In response to Sawatzke, Fingalson said he was unsure whether Otsego was aware of the requested study on CSAH 42. Sawatzke referenced a past speed study on CSAH 42 in Otsego which resulted in the speed being raised on a certain portion when it was anticipated it would be lowered. Fingalson said in that situation, the City initiated the request for a study. The important thing to remember is that the safe and reasonable speed will be determined. Sawatzke said the speed was 30 mph for years and then raised to 45 mph after the area developed. Fingalson said the State determined the speed. There may have been other factors involved. Sawatzke wanted the City of Otsego to be aware of the intent to request a speed study so they have an opportunity to voice any concerns. Sawatzke felt the Speed Zoning Resolution should be laid over for three weeks to allow the Highway Department to send notice to the respective cities and townships and to obtain feedback. Fingalson did not see why there wouldn’t be support for a speed study if one had never been done on a roadway. The response was that it was because of the uncertainty whether the outcome will be different than what is anticipated. Fingalson said Mn/DOT looks at all things (traffic, speed of vehicles, accesses, and turn lanes) when determining the safe and reasonable speed. Mn/DOT is the one body in the State that takes care of all speed limits. Heeter referenced CSAH 8 by the Hasty truck stop and inquired whether there were crash issues in that area. She said the entire stretch of CSAH 8 is 55 mph. Fingalson responded that the reason for the speed request is to provide a speed limit that is enforceable. Heeter felt a speed study on CSAH 8 would be a waste of Mn/DOT’s efforts unless crash data would support the request. Heeter made a motion to lay this issue over for four weeks to allow the Highway Department to send notice to the local jurisdictions (both cities and townships). The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 5-0.

Mattson moved to adopt Resolution #07-10, final acceptance for the CHSP Street Lighting Improvements, Contract #0609, with Design Electric, Inc. and authorize final payment of $4,002.70. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Dave Lindberg, US Fish & Wildlife Service, announced that the Service recently purchased 40 acres of land in Monticello Township (Section 35) from Daniel and Kathleen Holker. Lindberg requested County Board approval of a Certification for Acquisition. Sawatzke made a motion allowing the Certification of the purchase by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, second by Heeter, carried 5-0.

A Negotiation Committee Meeting was held on 1-24-07. At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Heeter, carried 5-0:

DEPUTY SHERIFF STEP INCREASES. Norman and Gary Miller, Sheriff, explained the issue. It impacts terms and conditions of employment and thus is subject to the collective bargaining process. After discussion, it was agreed that Norman will consult with Frank Madden on developing a remedy for the situation.

CONTRACTS/GRANT MANAGER POSITION. Don Mleziva, Human Services Director, has requested that this item not be discussed at this time. (End of Negotiation Committee Minutes)

A Personnel Committee Meeting was held on 1-24-07. At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke made a motion to approve the minutes, second by Mattson, carried 5-0:

Performance Appraisal – Larry Unger, Recorder. Based on the review of five appraisals submitted, the Committee recommends an overall rating of “Exceptional.” (End of Personnel Minutes)

A Technology Committee Meeting was held on 1-24-07. At today’s County Board Meeting, Mattson moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Sawatzke. Mattson had concern with the costs associated with the 800Mhz System and felt an audit should be completed to identify the costs. The system will cost millions of dollars and he felt more questions should be asked. Heeter responded that the 800Mhz will be a statewide system. Although a major investment, $9 million in grant funding will be made available to counties. The key to the System is the statewide interoperability. With the current radio system, there are areas in the County where radio communication is not received. At the Fire Chiefs and EMS meetings, this is one of the largest complaints or concerns the Sheriff Department receives. The 800 Mhz System will provide the ability to communicate effectively and efficiently to all firefighters, cities, etc. Mattson said with his bus business, he had a radio tower and communicated with staff in many areas. There was only one area within his range that transmissions were not received. Russek said he would like an answer on the longevity of the System’s technology. If the technology of the System will be in place for a considerable time, he felt it made sense to proceed in this fashion due to the ability to communicate State wide. It was the consensus that the minutes accurately reflect the discussion at the meeting. There was no Committee recommendation for action on this item. The motion to approve the minutes carried 5-0:

Regional Radio Board Joint Powers Agreement. Swing provided background information on the Regional Advisory Committee. Swing was previously appointed as the Wright County delegate and Howell as the alternate. The Region started with Wright, Sherburne, Benton, Morrison and Stearns Counties and the City of St. Cloud. Since its inception, the Region has grown to include Meeker, Kandiyohi and Todd Counties. The Committee has been discussing the Joint Powers Agreement for about 18 months. The thrust of the Agreement is the State of Minnesota’s rollout and interoperability of the 800 Mhz System, with the goal of making decisions on a regional basis. The areas of Central Minnesota and Rochester are in Phase III of the State’s implementation. The draft Agreement has been reviewed by the attorney offices of the participants. The Agreement has not been signed by any of the parties. This is anticipated toward the end of March but will be dependent upon further document revisions. Norman referenced the indemnification clause in the draft Agreement which reflects that each party to the Agreement will be held liable for lawsuits which may arise. Norman said a Joint Powers Board is required to hold their own insurance coverage. Otherwise, each signatory could be sued individually under the tort limits in Minnesota. Swing responded that MCIT has been contacted for their input. Once the Joint Powers Agreement has been signed by all agencies, the Regional Radio Board is formed. A handout was provided reflecting the flow charts of the various Boards and Committees involved. Discussion followed on the complexity of the structure of these Committees. Swing said the Regional Advisory Committee is the main group which will provide recommendations to the Regional Radio Board, after meeting with the User and Owner/Operator Committees. The Regional Advisory Committee is made up of one commissioner from each County, one council person from the City, and one voting member from each of the Committees (User, Owner/Operator & Advisory). The City will serve as the administrator of the Joint Powers Agreement. This includes formulation of the budget. The document indicates that the budget for each signatory will be based upon what is fair and reasonable. The allocation of cost will be determined based upon benefit to the agencies. The whole thrust of the project is interoperability Statewide. The purpose of working collaboratively is to reduce costs and to assure standards are met. Upgrades to regional equipment will be funded by all signatories and approval for these upgrades is based upon a majority vote. It was the consensus of the Technology Committee that the Agreement should include a funding formula and that the budget would need to be finalized and submitted to the County by August 15th in order to meet Budget schedules. It was suggested that the Agreement be discussed at the 1-30-07 Quad Counties Meeting. Swing previously met with Bruce Kimmel, Springsted Financial Advisors, and Jeff Nelson, the County’s consultant for the study on a shared system between Wright and Sherburne Counties for radios and subscriber radios. Swing has not yet obtained from Nelson the cost and equipment specifications. Jobe suggested that the County obtain a comprehensive list of equipment and what needs to be developed as the system moves forward, possibly modeled after other areas in the State. Norman said this information will be required by mid-Summer to potentially include the cost in the Jail/LEC bond issue. Hennepin County issued bonds for their 800 Mhz System and had a breakout list of equipment by city. All equipment is compatible and the cities paid their share directly to the County. Swing said that Kimmel and Nelson suggested the County front end the costs through bond issuance with payback by participants over a set time period. If a fire department elects not to switch over to the 800 Mhz System initially, the County would be required to maintain two systems. Howell suggested a sunset date for implementation. Swing said there are many grants available through the Department of Homeland Security. Planning and the consultant are being funded through Federal grants. The next Regional Advisory Committee Meeting will be held on 2-09-07 in Wright County (C118) where the draft will be discussed further. Recommendation: It was the consensus that further review of the draft Agreement is required. Any recommended changes should be forwarded to Swing. The Agreement was referred to the 2-28-07 Committee Meeting. (End of Technology Committee Minutes)

A Ways & Means Committee Meeting was held on 1-24-07. At today’s County Board Meeting, Mattson moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0:

COMPOST FACILITY REPAIRS. Chuck Davis, Environmental Health Supervisor, stated that he had to make an emergency furnace purchase for the Compost Facility. He had attempted to fix the furnace several times and was concerned about the pipes freezing. Carbon monoxide readings were taken in the building and it was discovered that the heat exchanger was leaking carbon monoxide. Climate Air, Inc. installed a new 3-ton Lennox – L.P. rooftop unit with roof curb in December, 2006, for $4,980. Davis requested authorization to pay the claim. Sawatzke asked Davis what his repair budget was for the year. Davis stated $10,000, but the actual repairs will be $14,000-15,000. Davis then requested that the electric and propane utilities be paid out of the 220 Surcharge Fee fund instead of the SCORE fund. The propane bill can be as high as $3,000/month and electric as high as $600/month. (Davis presented a current propane bill of $3,033.38 and explained that it was for propane consumed over a period of a month and a half.) Sawatzke requested that Davis provide a 10-15 year history of the SCORE fund’s year end totals for revenues and expenses. Davis stated that the SCORE fund has maintained a level balance of approximately $400,000 for the past few years. He was used to seeing the balance at approximately $600,000. Davis explained that they are heating the Fine Treatment building, which contains the sprinkler heads. If the pipes were to freeze, the sprinkler heads would consequently be set off. Sawatzke quizzed whether heating an entire vacant building made sense. Davis stated that only a small room containing the sprinkler heads is being heated; the tipping floor or the lounge is not heated. Sawatzke asked if the utilities have always been paid out of the SCORE fund. Davis stated yes. Sawatzke asked Davis if the County still receives $200,000 from the State. Davis stated that the County does receive two payments from the State and the Spring payment is due April, 2007. Sawatzke questioned Davis as to whether payments have been delayed in the past due to late paperwork submittal. Davis stated that to his knowledge, the SCORE report has been submitted on time every year and the next report is due in March. Davis proposed bringing in the SCORE reports for Sawatzke to review. Sawatzke stated that he’d rather see a summary of comparisons and Bob Hiivala in the Auditor’s office should be able to provide Davis with the information he needs. Sawatzke stated that it was his understanding that the utility payments have come out of the SCORE fund because it doesn’t have as much flexibility as the 220 Surcharge Fee fund. Davis stated that it will take him approximately four weeks to put together the reports, as the Auditor’s office is currently preparing year ends. The utility, electrical and propane summary comparison reports will be presented on 2-28-07 to the Committee. RECOMMENDATION: The Committee recommends payment of the $4,980.00 claim to Climate Air, Inc. for the installation of a new 3-ton Lennox – L.P. Gas rooftop unit with roof curb. Funding is to be from the Surcharge fund. (End of Ways & Means Minutes)

At the last meeting, the County Board took action to appoint Richard Lammers as a Municipal Representative on the Region 7W Transportation Policy Board, replacing Shelly Reddemann. At today’s meeting, Richard Norman, County Coordinator, said that the County has two municipal representative appointments on the Board. No action was taken on the position currently held by Fred Naaktegeboren, Mayor, City of Buffalo. Heeter moved to reappoint Fred Naaktegeboren as the Municipal Representative on the Region 7W Transportation Policy Board. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 5-0.
