1. May Parks Commission Minutes.

Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, presented a retirement plaque to Mary Palmquist of the Auditor/Treasurer’s Department. Palmquist was hired in March, 1980 and served in the positions of Senior Clerk, Land Records Technician, and Land Records Administrator. Palmquist was previously honored with the 1992 Employee Of The Year Award. Palmquist said she has seen many changes in the office over the years. Her position has been enjoyable and challenging. The Board extended thanks to Palmquist for her years of service.

Hiivala requested the Board authorize signatures on a contract with Maximus. The cost allocation plans will be based on the County’s actual year-end financial data for the years 2006, 2007 and 2008, and will be prepared in 2007, 2008 and 2009 respectively. The fee will be $6,500/year. The County expended $7,581 last year with a one-year contract. Sawatzke moved to approve the recommendation to authorize signatures on the contract, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0.

The claims listing was discussed. Mattson referenced a claim on Page 16 to Black Box Resale Services ($916.97) for eight remanufactured phones and inquired whether this was related to cell phones. Hiivala explained the claim is for remanufactured Meridian basic digital telephones for the Highway Department. On a motion by Heeter, second by Mattson, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit.

Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, presented a draft Order to establish a Mink-Somers Lake Improvement District (LID). The County Board held a Public Hearing on the formation of the LID on 5-01-07 and there was overwhelming support in favor of establishing the LID. The Order was drafted based upon Statute. The LID boundaries are not defined by legal description. A map and list of tax parcels will be attached to the Order. Upon approval by the County Board, a seven-member Board of Directors will be formed and each Director must meet the qualifications outlined in the Order. As the number of Directors is not specified in Statute, the number of Directors was based upon the wishes of the organizers. The majority of the Directors have to be full-time residents or homesteading property in the LID. The first Board of Directors will serve until the LID’s Annual Meeting (July or August), when a new Board of Directors will be elected by members of the LID. The Board of Directors authority and powers are generally taken from Statute. Sub-paragraph 5F refers to the ability to construct a water, sewer, or water and sewer system. While the LID is provided that power, the LID would be required to come back to the County Board for bonding authority. Items which were not included in the Order related to water level control, a provision to do a special service type of project, and water surface use regulations. The Order must be published once in the official County newspaper and filed with the Secretary of State, Pollution Control Agency, and the Commissioner of Natural Resources, with the effective date of the Order to be 7-02-07. Russek referenced the ability to construct the water or sewer system. Asleson explained there are no plans for such a project. This was left in the Order to accommodate smaller repairs which may be needed (i.e., three lots with failing systems could be serviced by community on-site treatment). These smaller repairs would be completed without bonding. Any action in this regard would still require approval by the Planning & Zoning Office. Asleson recommended that the Order be adopted by Resolution, making it consistent with past action by the Board for other LID formations. The following sentence will be added to Section 4 of the Order, “These Directors shall serve until the first annual meeting.” Heeter moved to adopt Resolution #07-27, seconded by Mattson. Mattson asked whether those appointed to the Board of Directors had reviewed the Order language. Asleson said the draft was routed to Russ Orson and Brad Longtin who will serve on the Board of Directors. They worked with drafting the language of the Order. Asleson was unsure of circulation beyond that. Sawatzke inquired about bylaws, and Asleson stated these were included in the binder of material provided to the Board. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Asleson was contacted by an attorney representing BANATCO, who was the successful bidder for the County sale of excess Mn/DOT right-of-way in the City of Buffalo, which resulted from TH 55 and CSAH 35 work. The land sold for $27,500.00. Asleson said that John Lundsten, owner of BANATCO, submitted a formal purchase agreement at that time. There have been a few changes to the closing date, but the buyer would like to close prior to July 4th. Asleson requested the Board authorize signatures on the purchase agreement. BANATCO owns property adjacent to the land purchased. An abstract will be prepared for both properties and the cost will be split between BANATCO and the County. The County’s cost for the abstract will be about the same through this method as it would be for only the portion being sold. Mattson asked whether there were any back taxes involved. Asleson said the property is tax exempt as it was acquired by Mn/DOT in 2003-2004. Heeter moved to authorize signatures on the purchase agreement, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0.

Craig Hayes, Purchasing Agent, recommended accepting a proposal from Loberg Electric for electrical work associated with the expansion of the parking lot to the west of the Government Center. At their last meeting, the County Board voted to award the construction project contract to Knife River. Otto Associates is the Engineer of record. Otto does not perform electrical services so the County must arrange for the work to be completed. The work will include moving the transformer (completed by the City at no cost to the County), two 25’ light poles, 200 amp service, and re-feeding existing light circuits and lawn sprinkler controls to the new service. Hayes said proposals were sought from four firms with two proposals received. These included Design Electric ($18,275) and Loberg Electric ($14,984). Based on the proposals, Hayes issued a purchase order to Loberg Electric so materials could be ordered. Signed contracts will be forwarded to the County. A pre-construction meeting will be held within a couple of days. Hayes inquired whether the Board would want representation at that meeting. Eichelberg moved to approve the low proposal from Loberg Electric and to authorize attendance by Heeter and Mattson at the pre-construction meeting if desired, with the date of the meeting to be determined. Otherwise, the authorization is to proceed. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 5-0.

At 9:30 A.M., Russek closed the bid process for the CSAH 19 Improvements in Albertville.

A Budget Committee Of The Whole Meeting was held on 5-15-07. At today’s County Board Meeting, the following changes were made: Page 4, 3rd paragraph, 2nd sentence should read, “Eichelberg noted that the County is in the low end of the percentage the State Auditor recommends” (Norman); and Page 4, 4th paragraph, 1st sentence should read, “Hiivala stated that although there is a surplus in the County’s General Revenue Fund, he would not recommend making any fund transfers at this time.” (Norman). Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes as corrected, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 4-0 (Russek abstained as he was not at the Budget Of The Whole Meeting):

REVIEW 2006 YEAR-END REVENUES/EXPENDITURES.

Hiivala introduced the purpose of today’s meeting by explaining that this is the annual meeting that summarizes how the County did financially during the previous year. State Statute 6.48 states, “the state auditor shall prescribe and install systems of accounts and financial reports that shall be uniform, so far as practicable, for the same class of (county) offices.” The Statute lead to the Board’s recent adoption of the County Financial Accounting and Reporting Standards (COFARS). Hiivala distributed the COFARS report for 2006. The report includes a comparison of budgeted revenues and expenditures to actual figures for the Human Services, Road & Bridge and General Revenue Budgets.

A. Human Services

Hiivala presented the Human Services COFARS report of the three divisions: Income Maintenance, Social Services, and Public Health Services.

Income Maintenance

Revenues; Budget: 3,573,800.00; Actual: 3,571,075.65; Surplus: 124,090.88; Deficit: 126,815.23; Net Surplus/(Deficit): -2,724.35

Expenses; Budget: 3,785,700.00; Actual: 3,759,457.10; Surplus: 64,345.12; Deficit: 38,102.22; Net Surplus/(Deficit): 26,242.90

Social Services

Revenues; Budget: 13,494,500.00; Actual: 12,294,618.81; Surplus: 209,742.16; Deficit: 1,409,623.35; Net Surplus/(Deficit): -1,199,881.19

Expenses; Budget: 13,695,700.00; Actual: 12,940,971.18; Surplus: 836,719.67; Deficit: 81,990.85; Net Surplus/(Deficit): 754,728.82

Public Health Services

Revenues; Budget: 2,940,600.00; Actual: 2,648,665.15; Surplus: 121,681.90; Deficit: 413,616.75; Net Surplus/(Deficit): -291,934.85

Expenses; Budget: 3,027,500.00; Actual: 3,000,331.27; Surplus: 77,497.25; Deficit: 50,328.52; Net Surplus/(Deficit) 27,168.73

Hiivala highlighted a few Sub Categories for each division:

Income Maintenance:

- Property Taxes, which are never 100% collected, came in $42,435.02 under projected revenue.

- Child Support came in at $109,674.82 under projection. Hiivala explained that the information is presented as a cash-basis type of reporting, and therefore does not take into account monies that are owed to the County from the State.

- DeMars stated that Medical Assistance Revenue has the appearance of a surplus at $87,328.43, however his Department is reimbursed by insurance companies for client medical services.

- Income Maintenance had an overall $23,518.55 surplus.

Social Services:

- Hiivala stated that Human Services budgeted Children Services revenues at $2,685,400.00, but they only took in $1,907,737.54. They came in under projection by $777,662.46. DeMars stated that collaborative funding runs through this specific line item.

- DeMars stated Foster Care is over budget.

- Combining Revenues and Expenses, Social Services has a total deficit of $445,152.37.

Public Health Services:

- Overall Public Health suffered a $264,766.12 deficit. DeMars stated that staff turnover, as well as changing over to a new software system, have been the main causes for the shortfall. The software system was acquired in late 2005/early 2006 and created a long learning curve. The staff spent more time in the office trying to familiarize themselves with the system rather than creating billable hours out in the field.

- There has been a significant caseload in Public Health. This requires a lot of documentation which in turn takes time away from being out in the field.

DeMars stated that overall, their Department has been affected greatly by employee turnover. Mleziva stated that Human Services had seen a 23% turnover in 2006, which mainly affected Social Services. Mleziva and DeMars both explained that a position experiences 2-3 months of downtime when an employee leaves. A new staff person costs the Department an additional 4-6 months of revenue as they are not out in the field, which directly affects client billable time. The Department loses the ability to bill when its staff is in the office, learning software, or shadowing experienced staff. This downtime addresses the budget reductions. Norman asked if the Department forecasts the turnover rate at budget time. DeMars stated that they do attempt to forecast turnover, however in 2006, 5 supervisory staff were new. The Department is on pace to lose 35 staff in 2007. Mleziva confirmed that they do factor in turnover, but it is not to the degree that the Department has actually suffered. Norman stated that his concern is that if Human Services continues to over-forecast its revenues on an assumption of being 100% staffed, while anticipating receiving 100% State funding, then the Department will deplete its reserve fund. Mleziva stated that he understands Norman’s concerns. Hiivala explained that he had each division itemize and explain budget variances greater than $10,000 for Significant Line Items in a 2006 Year-End Budget Summary Report. Sawatzke questioned the variance on the State Grant CADI Waiver. DeMars explained that in CADI, the Department tries to predict how many children and adults will require services. Sawatzke asked if the CADI number was under projected. DeMars stated yes. DeMars explained that with Meth and increased drug busts, a significant high number of children have been put into foster care. Human Services was significantly off on their 2006 projection. Mleziva stated that they have attempted to adjust the 2007 budget to project the continued growth in foster care. Mleziva stated that the Department has changed MFIP billing. Mleziva explained that Human Services still has contracts, however, they still are using a lot of money for in-house activity. He noted that the State is temporarily approving their plan. Mleziva also stated that the Department has written two employment positions which will directly deal with foster care funding. Funding is complicated but there are staff members involved in attempting to coordinate the expenditure aspects of foster care. Sawatzke noted that the Board had anticipated using $500,000 out of reserve when in all actuality there was $686,399.94 used. Norman stated that this information appears to be different than what was reported in the year-end printout. Sawatzke stated that he was concerned as it appears as if Human Services has lost over a million dollars. Sawatzke and Norman noted that there appears to be a discrepancy. Sawatzke and Norman both stated their concerns that the Department cannot budget reserve spending any further. The actual use of reserves in 2006 was over $1.1 million. Mattson asked Mleziva and DeMars if it would be accommodating to bring in experienced child support services from the outside to alleviate the “downtime” during staff turnover. Both Mleziva and DeMars stated no, as there is a lot of training; welfare alone has over 6,000 rules. Mleziva stated that there is a plan to look at an increase of local levy to help meet the Department’s income demands.

B. Road & Bridge

Hiivala presented the Road & Bridge COFARS report:

Revenues; Budget: 16,512,925.00; Actual: 16,473.114.84; Surplus: 1,984.420.21; Deficit: 2,024,230.37; Net Surplus/(Deficit): -39,810.16

Expenses; Budget: 16,033,655.00; Actual: 14,747,946.26; Surplus: 1,337,939.10; Deficit: 52,230.36; Net Surplus/(Deficit): 1,285,708.74

Hiivala highlighted a few Sub Categories:

- A comparison of actual revenues to budgeted revenues reflected Taxes, Charges for Services, and Other Financing Sources above projected figures, with actual expenditures for Salaries, Benefits, Communications, Rentals, Insurances, Operating Supplies, Highway Supplies and Highway Repair Supplies below projections.

- A draw-down on State Funding produced a deficit totaling $1,738,625.57 for construction.

- On the expense side, the Department came in $93,592 under Salaries projections.

- Norman noted that the “Insurances” line item appeared to be quite high. Discussion ensued on what was coded to the 635 series. Hiivala stated that highway contracts are coded under 635 (Insurances), but should have been coded to Highways.

- All Gravel Tax is receipted into the Road & Bridge Revenue fund and showed to be better than budgeted.

- State Aid for Regular Construction, specifically coded under Engineering Revenues, was projected to take in $4,189,500, but took in an actual $1,918,475.42. State Aid for Municipal Construction also came in under budget; however “Other Funds – Construction” did not have a budget and yet took in $916,847.99. Federal Funds for Construction came in $285,604.80 under budget.

- 98% of projected Property Taxes were collected.

Norman asked if the revenue from the Intra-County Services was a one year increase, or if it is expected to be a trend. Ellis stated that the revenue was from a grant for the Parks Department. Discussion continued on the appropriate coding of auction revenues and equipment/land acquisitions. Norman questioned the $87,949 surplus for the Equipment Note Transfer. Ellis stated that there shouldn’t be a surplus as the Department collected what was budgeted. Hiivala noted that he had Ellis provide explanations for variances greater than $10,000 on significant line items in the 2006 Year-End Budget Summary Report. In the Report, the variance is noted “actual should have been $549,981 – County Auditor to correct.” Eichelberg stated that he found the comments to be beneficial. Hiivala stated that in the 5 Year Financial Data report, the Department has shown a $1,278,633.64 surplus. Hiivala reiterated that the report is a cash basis type of report. Discussion took place on the Chouinard property and where the revenue will be posted in the 2007 Budget Report.

C. General Revenue

Hiivala explained that the General Revenue COFARS Report condenses all the other remaining County Departments to sub-categories. The General Revenue COFARS Report was distributed:

Revenues; Budget: 36,538,644.00; Actual: 38,745,854.23; Surplus: 2,803,737.39; Deficit: 596,799.16; Net Surplus/(Deficit): 2,206,938.23

Expenses; Budget: 36,595,644.00; Actual: 38,853,666.13; Surplus: 1,947,499.87; Deficit: 4,205,522.00; Net Surplus/(Deficit): -2,258,022.13

Hiivala highlighted a few Sub Categories:

- Collectively, the County has a surplus.

- The County exceeded its anticipated tax collections by $526,495.71.

- The County had a very good year in its Investment Earnings. The interest rates nearly doubled over the last year providing a surplus of $980,131.58.

- A comparison of actual revenues to budgeted revenues reflected Taxes, Licenses & Permits, Grants, Charges for Services, Investment Earnings and Contributions above projections, with actual expenditures for Salaries, Benefits, Communications, Insurances, Travel, Repairs & Maintenance and Interdepartmental to be below projections.

- “Other Financing Uses” came in over budget by $3,312,436.57. The Board did approve a transfer from the Revenue Fund to the Capital Improvement Fund of $3,347,676.00.

- Hiivala noted that the County paid $541,260 for Fair land that was not budgeted.

- Intergovernmental revenues came in $401,419.55 under projections.

Hiivala noted that the County is within the State Auditor’s recommended reserve fund balance. Eichelberg noted that the County is in the low end of the percentage the State Auditor recommends. Sawatzke noted that the County’s surplus appears to be at $3,039,313.96. Funds earmarked for Parks and aerial photographer should be deducted from the reserve balance. Hiivala explained how he backs out the Recorders Equipment Fund from the 2006 surplus in the 5 Year Financial Data Report. A consensus was to have Hiivala draft a detailed report of earmarked projects to allow for future cash planning. Norman stated that during budget planning, Departments come forward to request “capital project funding”. Norman reminded Hiivala that following contract negotiations, the County will have to book for severance pay. Hiivala stated that the severance will affect the unreserved fund balance. Hiivala stated that although there is a surplus in the County’s General Revenue Fund, he would not recommend making any fund transfers at this time. (End of Budget Committee Of The Whole Minutes)

The bid opening was held for the CSAH 19 improvements in Albertville (from 57th Street to the South City Limits of Albertville). There were 43 plan holders and 33 elected the option of downloading the proposals from the Internet. There was one addendum to the project. The County received three bids. The Engineer’s Estimate for the project was $3,800,000. Fingalson requested the bids be laid over to later in the meeting in an effort to award the bid today. The Albertville City Engineer was present to review the bids, as a portion of the project is for the City. The bids were as follows:

Bidder; Bid Bond; Acknowledge Addendum; Bid Price

Dennis Fehn, Albertville; Yes; Yes; $3,236,571.79

Knife River, Sauk Rapids; Yes; Yes; $3,410,359.08

Duininck Bros., Prinsburg; Yes; Yes; $3,669,786.13

Fingalson presented a draft resolution which would revoke a portion of CSAH 14 right of way to the jurisdiction of Rockford Township. Due to the realignment of the intersection of CSAH 14 and 10th St. SE with TH 55, certain portions of the old road right of way are no longer needed by Wright County and are to be turned back over to Rockford Township to be designated as part of 10th St. SE. As allowed by MN Statutes, Rockford Township has agreed to waive any hearing requirements. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #07-28, seconded by Sawatzke. In response to Russek, Fingalson confirmed that this land will not be needed when TH 55 expands. Mattson asked whether the Township received the $5,000 benefit due to the closing of the railroad crossing. Fingalson said there was not a direct payment to the Township in this case, as safety improvements were made at the railroad crossing. The Township was in agreement with the improvements. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Due to the recent realignment of the intersection of CSAH 14 with TH 55, certain portions of the old road right of way are no longer needed for the repair and maintenance of CSAH 14. However, access needs to be retained for utility companies that have facilities in this portion of the vacated CSAH 14. A draft resolution was presented by Fingalson which would reserve the County’s right to access or give permission for access to the vacated portion of CSAH 14. Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #07-29, seconded by Mattson. Fingalson stated that once approved, the Resolution will be posted in the County Auditor’s Office for ten days and the three owners will be served a copy as well. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Tara Martin, A&P Construction, recommended award of the Special Inspections/Material Testing for the Jail/LEC Project. Three proposals were received including Braun Intertec ($103,985), Construction Engineering Laboratory ($115,274), and Northern Technologies ($82,000). After review of the proposals, Martin recommended accepting the proposal from Braun Intertec. The bid from Northern Technologies excluded testing requirements for the concrete portion which would have increased their proposal amount. The Northern Technologies bid reflected $5,600 for the concrete portion and it is valued at $30,000. In response to Sawatzke, Martin said the $160,000 budget for testing is included in the $40.5 million estimate for the project under General Conditions. Discussion followed on total project cost and how this amount would be affected by bids which come in lower than estimate. Martin explained that they acknowledge internally that costs have come in under budget for three bid categories. That surplus is carried from Bid Package #1 to Bid Packages #2 and #3 as a contingency until all contracts are fully awarded. The $40.5 million figure is a variable and is dependent upon contracts. Sawatzke said this current proposal came in $56,000 less than the $160,000 estimate. He asked whether another category would come in that much higher as a result. Martin responded this would not happen. However, there will be bid categories that come in over estimate. Norman inquired whether the $103,985 was a hard number or a not-to-exceed figure based upon testing. Martin said Braun Intertec will bill on a time and material basis and could potentially come in less than the bid amount. Sawatzke moved to accept the recommendation to award the Special Inspections/Material Testing for the Jail/LEC Project to Braun Intertec at a cost of $103,985. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 5-0.

Rick Streich, A&P Construction, provided a project update on the Jail/LEC Project. Norman inquired whether the targeted completion date is the same as the original schedule. Martin said an updated schedule was sent to the County this morning reflecting a date of 2-01-09, which is still within the 18-month construction period. Todd Hoffman, Sheriff Department, informed the Board that the person renting land for crops has planted in an area where construction will be occurring and storage will occur. Fingalson met with the grading contractor yesterday. As indicated at a previous Ways & Means Committee Meeting, the person renting land (Gapinski) was to have contacted Richard Marquette of the Highway Department on layout prior to planting. This was not done.

Eichelberg moved to authorize attendance at the Metropolitan Council Meeting, Chair’s Meeting with Neighboring County Officials, on 6-08-07 in St. Paul. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 5-0.

Russek announced the AMC District V Meeting being held at the Wright County Government Center on 5-24-07 at 8:00 A.M. This was placed on the Agenda to put the public on notice that five Commissioners may attend this meeting.

The meeting recessed at 9:57 A.M. and reconvened at 10:31 A.M.

Laid over from earlier in today’s meeting, Fingalson brought forward the results of the bid review for the CSAH 19 improvements in Albertville (from 57th Street to the South City Limits of Albertville). Fingalson said all three proposals contained errors. The recommendation is to award the contract to Dennis Fehn at a revised cost of $3,237,536.51 which is 16% below the project estimate. The City concurs with their portion of the project. The revised proposals from the other two firms are Knife River Construction, $3,345,260.51 and Duininck Brothers, $3,702,786.15. Eichelberg moved to award the bid to Dennis Fehn, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0.
