Wright County Board Minutes

APRIL 15, 2008
The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Heeter, Sawatzke, Mattson, Russek and Eichelberg present.
Russek moved to approve the 4-01-08 County Board Minutes as presented, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0.
Petitions were accepted to the Agenda as follows: Item For Consid. #9, “Overtime Request For Planning & Zoning Staff On 4-22-08 As Part Of Earth Day At The Compost Facility” (Russek). Sawatzke moved to approve the Agenda with the addition, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.
Bill Stephens, Environmental Health Officer, said the Compost Facility will be open on 4-22-08 from 9:00 A.M. to 7:00 P.M. The extended hours are to accommodate collection of televisions at the Facility as part of Earth Day. Stephens envisioned 2-3 staff members incurring approximately 8 hours of overtime. Sawatzke felt the extended hours for collection of the televisions was a value to citizens and did not feel the overtime hours would total more than a couple hundred dollars. Sawatzke moved to authorize the Planning & Zoning Department to utilize overtime hours on 4-22-08 as part of the Earth Day television collection. Mattson seconded the motion. In response to Mattson, Stephens affirmed that if needed, they will continue with the collection past the 7:00 P.M. time. Notice of the collection has been forwarded to local newspapers. The cities and townships have been informed as well with a request to place the notice on their bulletin boards and websites. The motion authorizes overtime past 7:00 P.M. if required. The motion carried 5-0.

Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, presented a request to refer concerns from the Main Switchboard in the Lobby to the appropriate Committee for discussion. With the recent security addition in the Lobby, the noise level has increased. The request is to potentially enclose the area due to safety concerns. This could also serve as a barrier for direct access to the Commissioner’s offices. Sawatzke felt this position was one of the safest in the County due to four bailiffs being in close proximity to the area. He understood the noise concern. Sawatzke moved to refer the issue to the Building Committee for further discussion, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0. Heeter requested that Hiivala provide to the Committee possible solutions to the problem.
Hiivala presented a draft Credit Card Policy for review. The Policy was written in response to State Auditor recommendations. The County currently has fuel cards and more specific credit cards (i.e., Wal-Mart & Target). The draft Policy would relate to a more generic credit card (i.e., Visa) and would be held for use by Craig Hayes, Purchasing Agent, allowing purchases over the internet. Once approved, the Policy would be made part of the County’s Policy and Procedures Manual as recommended by the State Auditor’s Office. Sawatzke moved to refer the draft Policy to the Personnel Committee for further review. The motion was seconded by Heeter. In response to Mattson, Hiivala explained that the Visa type card would not replace the fuel cards or those specific to a store. The policy was drafted by Norman, Hiivala, Asleson and Hayes. It was the consensus that the Committee will discuss this Policy potentially applying to other types of credit cards as well. Hiivala explained that the Policy was written specific to use by the Purchasing Agent, as they do not want departments obtaining cards on their own. The motion carried 5-0.
Hiivala requested approval of the March Revenue/Expenditure Guidelines. In addition to one full report being provided to the Board, a two-page budget report was also distributed. It was the consensus to proceed in this fashion until July at which time all Board members will receive the full report as well. Hiivala explained that there are always appropriations paid at the beginning of each year which may make the budget appear to be exceeded. The budget is in line for the first quarter of the year. Russek moved to accept the March Revenue/Expenditure Guidelines, seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0.
The claims listing was discussed. Heeter questioned what immunizations inmates were receiving. Capt. Gary Torfin, Jail Administrator, said this relates to tuberculin skin tests. These tests are required of all inmates who are at the Facility for seven days or longer. Employees must also be screened when they are hired and on an annual basis. Russek referenced a payment of $1,068 for supervisor training with funding from the Administration Department. Richard Norman, County Coordinator, said the Administration Department budget funds the initial payment. A journal entry will be made in April charging the other departments involved. On a motion by Mattson, second by Russek, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit.
Kerry Saxton, SWCD, provided an update on the Weed Grant applied for through the Board of Soil & Water Resources (BWSR) for the eradication of wild parsnip and possibly other noxious weeds. Originally, $1 million was designated for the program through BWSR. Due to the State shortfall, the grant funding was cut to $500,000. The local SWCD applied for $70,000. The County Board and SWCD Board agreed to fund $10,000 each toward the effort. Saxton said the grant documents reflect that Wright County’s application rated 9 out of 22 total applications. Wright County is being offered $25,000 with the suggestion of reworking the budget with the funding available. Saxton said the SWCD Board agreed to uphold their $10,000 contribution toward the weed eradication effort with County Board support. He wanted to know whether the County will still contribute $10,000. Saxton said the reduction in grant funding would require them to rely more heavily on other entities such as the Highway Department which does spraying. The public will be asked to report incidences of wild parsnip on private property. The first year of the effort will provide information on where wild parsnip is located. A cooperative weed management group will be formed. This group may need to be downscaled due to the cut in funding. Other invasive species may be looked at as well but the target will be wild parsnip. Russek moved to support the previous motion to contribute $10,000 toward the eradication effort. Mattson asked whether the SWCD has identified where the heaviest areas of wild parsnip are located. He is working with a Sante Fe Burlington Rail System representative. Saxton responded that the SWCD and Highway Department put together something that identifies areas based on information received. However, this does not include public input and may not reflect new locations. Saxton will provide Mattson with the information they have obtained. Saxton said wild parsnip has been identified along the I-94 corridor and along the railroad tracks. The railroad did spray last year when they were informed of the wild parsnip. The Highway Department sprayed as well. Wild parsnip is a biannual plant and some training will need to occur on identification of the plant. It has not been determined whether train traffic spreads the seed. It may be transferred with mower decks as well. Saxton felt the weed may have been transferred to the area by trucks or possibly trains. The motion to contribute the $10,000 by the County was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0.
Gary Torfin, Jail Administrator, presented a draft resolution proclaiming May 4-10, 2008 as Correction Officer’s Week in Wright County. Each year, the American Jail Association designates one week as Correctional Officer’s Week. This week is the first week in May. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #08-16, seconded by Heeter, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, requested that the Board address funding options for CSAH 12/TH 55 improvements. Fingalson received an email this morning indicating that the Senate has agreed to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to consideration the SAFETEA-LU Technical Corrections Bill. What this means it is takes away the requirement of unanimous approval (where all 100 Senators need to agree). The vote was 93 to 1 in favor. The Bill will be considered starting today with a maximum time of discussion of 30 hours under the cloture rule. There is concern about a filibuster occurring. The email further summarized that given the discussion in the Senate, it is felt the discussion will be much shorter. Both sides have requested that if there are amendments to present, they were to talk with their respective leader last night. The intent of both leaders is to keep the Bill as close to the House Bill as possible to make for a quick conference committee action on a joint bill. Fingalson said that since this was a correction to a 2005 Bill, many wondered why it could not wait until the next bill. However, there is a large impetus on the jobs that would be created and many projects are being held hostage by this Bill. Fingalson anticipates finding out by the end of the week whether the Technical Corrections Bill is approved. The County still needs to consider alternatives in case this does not happen. Fingalson said the City of Buffalo decided to apply for Transportation Revolving Loan Funds to upfront costs associated with the TH 55/CR 134 intersection project. Mn/DOT has agreed to reimburse the City in 2013 for the funds they expend as so much of the project involves improvements to TH 55. This is unlike the TH 55/CSAH 12 project. Most of the high priority project money (Federal funding) from the Highway 55 Corridor Coalition would have been paying for the State portion in the CR 134 project, whereas it pays for the County portion on the CSAH 12 project. Fingalson presented three options for funding the TH 55/CSAH 12 intersection if the Technical Corrections Bill does not pass. He distributed a handout breaking down the $346,833.00 shortfall. The first option would be to apply for Transportation Revolving Loan Funds. This option would require payment of the loan plus interest. The application deadline is today and the request for funding could be withdrawn if the Bill passes. The second option would be the Capital Improvement Fund. The third option would be State Aid funding. Fingalson said with the passage of the Transportation Bill, it appears that more State Aid will be available in 2009. Wright County has advance encumbered almost to the maximum amount. However, the District State Aid Engineer felt the County could advance encumber more State Aid. The Highway 55 Corridor Coalition Technical Committee met yesterday to prepare for a joint meeting on 4-18-08. Fingalson said a total of $1.6 million needs to be spent this year. Given the short time frame, there is not adequate time to add projects to the list. Right of way along TH 55 cannot be purchased as the environmental reports are not complete. If the Technical Corrections Bill does not pass for the whole Highway 55 Corridor Coalition, this will reduce chances of obtaining funding in the future. Heeter appreciated the City’s efforts to take responsibility for the TH 55/CR 134 stoplight. She felt both projects are long overdue and need to be completed. It was the consensus of the Board not to pursue funds from the Transportation Revolving Loan Fund. No action was taken, awaiting word on whether the Technical Corrections Bill passes.
Fingalson requested approval of Agreement #08-52 with the City of St. Michael for highway improvements on CSAH 18. These improvements are required as a result of the construction of the St. Michael/Albertville High School. There will be no cost to the County other than future responsibility of the signal controller, which is done with all agreements. The Agreement outlines improvements which need to be made. Sawatzke moved to approve the Agreement, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.
Fingalson requested approval of Amendment No. 4 to Mn/DOT Agreement No. 86572 for the TH 55 Corridor Coalition. The Agreement was originally approved on 5-25-04 and allows Mn/DOT to act as the County’s agent in accepting Federal aid in connection with the TH 55 Corridor Project. An amendment is required as part of the Federal reimbursement process to keep the County’s consultant, SRF Consulting Group, Inc., on board through 2008 to help manage the transportation development process. The County will solicit for another consultant in 2009. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #08-17 and to approve the amendment. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
At 10:00 A.M., Eichelberg closed the bid process for the Administration Department Remodeling Project.
An Owner’s Committee Meeting was held on 4-01-08. At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes and recommendations. Mattson questioned whether the furniture in Conference Room C118 will be moved to the new Jail/LEC site. Sawatzke responded that the furniture will remain in C118, as that will continue to serve as a Conference Room. New furniture will be purchased for the Conference Room at the Jail/LEC. Furniture from workstations will be moved to the new site. The motion to approve the minutes and recommendations carried 5-0:
Streich stated that the final concrete pour in the lower and upper levels of the LEC occurs today. Framing, rocking, and setting door frames continues on the second level. The electrical and mechanical rough-ins will continue throughout the next couple of weeks. Taping of the sheetrock walls in the LEC second level is also scheduled to take place throughout the next couple of weeks. Interior wood blocking, masonry walls, and installation of radiant heat is complete in Areas A and B. Last week, the color concrete was poured down the main corridor of the Jail. The slab on grade and freezer base will be poured in the kitchen area. In Area C, the underground mechanical is in and the installation of the underground electrical is being done today. The interior masonry walls will be laid next week in Area C. The plank block and the above grade block work was completed in Area F. Roof blocking is scheduled for this week. Roofing is scheduled to begin on 4-07-08 in the gym area. Forming and pouring footings occurs this week in Area E. Thirty-five of the 121 pre-cast units (one unit equals two cells) were set. Twelve to sixteen more units will be set on 4-03-08. Streich stated that it has been a struggle to maneuver the units around the building. A full-time operator is on site to assist in bringing the trucks in and out of the site and keeping up the maintenance of the roads. Sawatzke acknowledged Blotske’s Potential Change Orders (PCO) log. The log (see attached) was printed on 3-18-08 and Blotske confirmed that the list is accurate as of today’s Meeting. Blotske clarified that the log lists all change orders approved by the Committee and Torfin. She noted that the list may appear to be missing sequential change orders. She stated that the reason for the missing change orders is because either the PCO was not approved, or she is in the process of attaining pricing on the PCO. The approximate value of the unprocessed PCOs is $230,000. Sawatzke requested that the log be attached to the Minutes for the record.
Buikema stated that KKE is starting the design process for the exterior signage. The hope is to present the concept to the Committee on 4-15-08 so that it can be sent off for bid. The intent is to design a pylon sign on the street and exterior address signage. Heeter questioned the site address that would be placed on the exterior signage. Torfin stated that 3800 Braddock Ave NE is used for deliveries. Norman reminded the Committee that the City has assigned an address of 2300 1st Ave NW. Sawatzke proposed that the exterior signage be interchangeable until the permanent address is determined. Buikema questioned the County’s intent for the interior signage. Hayes stated that the County’s current vendor would provide the interior signs. Only the signs necessary for occupancy will be ordered immediately. Buikema noted that the interior signage should be one of the last items to be installed. Discussion occurred on the numbering system for the offices as it corresponds with the fire alarm system. Buikema stated that Roxanne DeCoster has been working on furnishings and coordinating FF&E with Hayes. Hayes stated that DeCoster has also been working with the furniture vendors.
Swing presented a handout (see attached) outlining the progress of the Voice & Data contract. After receiving three proposals, an Evaluation Team reviewed the proposals and negotiated pricing with Spectrum Solutions. The Team has made its recommendation and requests that the Committee recommend execution of the contract with Spectrum in the amount of $420,108.00. Norman asked how Spectrum’s contract amount compares to the estimate presented to the Technology Committee of the Whole on 7-25-07. Swing stated that the project was estimated at $401,000. He stated that he is still confident that the overall technological needs for the new facility will come within budget (as presented on 7-25-07). RECOMMENDATION: Execute contract with Spectrum for the negotiated amount of $420,108.00. Swing announced that a “Kick-off” meeting is scheduled with Spectrum on 4-11-08. Because the County Board Meeting is cancelled on 4-08-08, it was noted that the Board would not officially approve the contract until the following Board meeting on 4-15-08.
Hayes provided an update on FF&E.
1. Dispatch Furniture. Seven Dispatch stations are to be furnished in the new facility.
Hennepin County has a contract with Watson Dispatch. Watson works “hand in glove” with Motorola. The contract was a result of a competitive bid process. Hennepin County’s contract allows for a 40% discount on the product, a ten-year warranty, and pricing includes shipping and installation. The consensus between the I.T. Director, Sheriff, and Mike Mazzitello of GeoComm is to pursue a proposal from Watson for the Owner’s Committee review. Howell described the Dispatch furniture as being very technical and custom designed. RECOMMENDATION: Pursue obtaining a proposal from Watson for the Owner’s Committee review.
2. Modular Furniture. Hayes provided detailed drawings of the modular furniture and a proposal from Intereum. The handouts (see attached) include a breakdown of the new pieces the County would be ordering, and a tabulation sheet that shows current inventory that will be moved and used in the new facility. The proposed cost of the new product, installation of both new and old product, teardown and move of existing product, and cleaning of the old product, is $261,050.81. If the Committee selects Intereum as the office furniture vendor, a contract will be required by summer. Hayes explained that installation is quoted at $35/hour. Hayes stated that Intereum did not provide a quote for the quantity of hours for installation. Hayes encouraged the Committee members to review the furniture layout to determine the extent and necessity. Heeter stated that she felt comfortable with what was presented knowing that Intereum is using the County’s current inventory. Heeter asked if the invoice for Intereum’s design services has been submitted. Hayes stated that he did not recall seeing an invoice; however, the State contract specifies a design amount of $75/hour.
3. Ancillary Furniture. Hayes distributed Marco’s drawings, room-by-room costs, and summary index cost (see attached). Hayes stated the assumption is that the current conference room furniture would remain in the Government Center. New conference room furniture will be purchased for the LEC. There are three training rooms and two conference rooms. Hayes stated that Hoffman inventoried the existing furniture that will be moving to the new facility. Sawatzke asked if Office Max, Office Depot, or HOM would be interested in bidding on the ancillary furniture. Hayes stated that the furniture is all under State contract. Hayes explained that the benefit of working with Marco is that a good working relationship has been established. Sawatzke questioned the fuel surcharge in Marco’s proposal. Hayes stated that more vendors are charging fuel charges. Hayes stated that he could seek another proposal from General Office Products; however, the only price difference would be in the delivery fee, which Marco would likely negotiate.
4. Jail Furniture. Torfin stated that he anticipates the high density plastic furniture for the Jail portion of the building will cost approximately $80,000. The furniture is designed for high-usage. Hayes confirmed that this package would be put out for bid.
Hoffman briefed the Committee on the technology and projection needs for the Training room, conference rooms, and Sheriff’s room. Miller proposed that the Owner’s Committee Members and Commissioners make a site visit. He stated that a lot of progress has been made and felt it would be beneficial for the members to get an idea of the layout. A tour will be scheduled as part of the 4-15-08 Owner’s Committee Meeting. Norman reminded the Committee that the 4-08-08 Owner’s Committee Meeting is cancelled. Blotske stated that she would present the next pay application at the 4-15-08 Owner’s Committee Meeting.
(End of Owner’s Committee Minutes)
The bid opening occurred for the Administration Department Remodeling Project. The bid includes demolition, new walls, interior finishes, filling of the stairwell, and updating light fixtures. The County will be responsible for HVAC, modular furniture, card doors, and data/voice wiring. The total estimated cost for this portion of the project is approximately $95,000. Four bids were submitted. It was the consensus that the bids would be laid over until 10:30 A.M. for review and recommendation.
Bidder’s Name; Bid Bond; Total Cost
Ernst General Construction (Buffalo MN); Yes; $79,899
Nelson Building Development (Buffalo MN); Yes; $90,749
Hunerberg Construction Co. (Maple Grove MN); Yes; $67,438
J.S. Cates Construction Inc. (Hamel MN); Yes; $99,000
The Owner’s Committee will meet at 1:00 P.M.
On a motion by Russek, second by Heeter, all voted to appoint Commissioner Eichelberg to attend the Technology Planning Workshop on 4-21-08 from 1:30-3:30 P.M.
Heeter moved to adopt Resolution #08-18, approving Charitable Gambling Application Form LG215 for Monticello Lions Club, Up The Creek Grill & Bar Inc., 4246 112th St. NW, Silver Creek MN 55358 (Silver Creek Twp.). The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Laid over from the 4-01-08 Meeting, the Board discussed compensation for members of the Personnel Board of Appeals. Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, was unable to be present for discussion today. Richard Norman, County Coordinator, stated that neighboring counties were surveyed on compensation. Anoka, Sherburne, Stearns, and Benton Counties all provide a $50/day reimbursement rate plus mileage. Norman recommended the same rate for Wright County. Heeter moved to approve a $50/day reimbursement rate plus mileage for Personnel Board of Appeals members. The motion includes approval of the claims submitted by the three Personnel Board of Appeals members for a recent termination appeal. The motion was seconded by Russek. Sawatzke understood that members could not obtain a salary from another source while collecting a per diem. The motion carried 5-0.
Asleson submitted a request for the Board to set a date and time for a public hearing to consider amendments to Ordinance 99-02 adopting the MN State Building Code. In August of 1999, the County Board adopted Ordinance 99-02, adopting by reference the then current version of the State Building Code. Wright County’s Building Official has recommended adoption of language to make the Ordinance “self-perpetuating”. Since the building code is an official control, a public hearing is required. Norman requested that this issue be laid over until later in the meeting to determine when the Building Official is available for the public hearing.
Norman said information was received from AMC inviting the County Board and himself to attend Session 8 of the AMC Leadership Cohort Program on 4-23-08 from 12:30 to 4:30 P.M. at the Coyote Moon Grill in St. Cloud. Heeter moved to authorize attendance, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0. Those interested in attending were to inform Norman yet today.
Russek moved to adopt Resolution #08-19, approving Charitable Gambling Application Form LG215 for Crow River Youth Hockey Association, Boone Docks Saloon, 2448 Hwy. 55, Buffalo MN 55313 (Rockford Twp.). The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
The meeting recession at 10:21 A.M. and reconvened at 10:30 A.M.
Laid over from earlier in the meeting, Hayes brought forth the results of the review of the bids opened for the Administration Department Remodeling Project. In the bids, contractors were asked to provide a breakdown of material and labor which is reflected below:
Bidder’s Name; Bid Bond; Total Cost; Material Costs; Labor Costs
Ernst General Construction (Buffalo MN); Yes; $79,899; $41,664; $38,235
Nelson Building Development (Buffalo MN); Yes; $90,749; Not provided; Not provided
Hunerberg Construction Co. (Maple Grove MN); Yes; $67,438; $51,656; $15,782
J.S. Cates Construction Inc. (Hamel MN); Yes; $99,000; $41,000; $58,000
Hayes said the low bid is from Hunerberg Construction Co. at $67,438. In review of the bid, he felt the labor costs may not be accurately reflected. Hayes recommended that Hunerberg Construction Co. be accepted as the low bidder with the understanding that a meeting will be scheduled to make sure they understand the scope of the project and to assure they can stand by their bid. If this is not the case, the County would then proceed with the second low bidder. Mattson moved to approve this recommendation, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.
Discussion resumed on the request to schedule a Public Hearing to set a date and time for a public hearing to consider amendments to Ordinance 99-02 adopting the MN State Building Code. Norman recommended that the Public Hearing be scheduled for 5-06-08. Russek moved to schedule the Public Hearing for 5-06-08 at 10:00 A.M., seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0.
