Wright County Board Minutes

The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Heeter, Sawatzke, Mattson, Russek and Eichelberg present.
On a motion by Russek, second by Mattson, all voted to approve the 9-02-08 County Board minutes as presented.
Heeter moved to approve the Agenda as presented, seconded by Russek, carried unanimously.
On a motion by Heeter, second by Mattson, all voted to approve the Consent Agenda:
1. Performance Appraisals: R. Jenson, Bldg. Maint.; T. Janikula, P&Z; K. Clemence, D. Estensen, A. Sturm, Sher./Corr.
2. KKE Architects, Inc., $21,360.05, Service for July, 2008 (Jail/LEC Project).
1. Accept The Findings & Recommendations Of The Planning Commission For The Following Rezoning:
A. Donald W. Shore (Rockford Twp.). Planning Commission unanimously recommends approval of the request to rezone appx. 8.58 acres from AG to R-2.
Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, presented Registered Land Survey No. 39 (Silver Creek Twp.) for approval. On a motion by Russek, second by Heeter, all voted to approve a Registered Land Survey No. RLS #39 submitted by Robert L. Rohlin, Land Surveyor, MN License #7439, for client, Robert A. Williams, owner of said property described as: Tract A of Registered Land Survey No. 35; with all outstanding taxes and fees having been paid, and the Registered Land Survey has been reviewed and signed by Steven A. Jobe, Wright County Surveyor.
Hiivala requested approval of a resolution authorizing a County Absentee Ballot County Board for UOCAVA. The Board will be comprised of four specific members of the Auditor’s Office staff who will take care of the processing of military absentee ballots. Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #08-35, seconded by Mattson. Gloria Gooler, Election Supervisor, explained that not many military absentee ballot requests have been received for the Primary Election. There are far more military absentee ballot requests coming in for the General Election. A new procedure has been implemented allowing ballots to be transmitted electronically to military and overseas voters. It is the voter’s responsibility to print the ballot and return it by mail or fax. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
An update was provided on County Ditch #10. Hiivala reported that Mattson met with three contractors on site and asked them to submit quotes on the repair of the Ditch. Hiivala opened the bids:
Bidder; Bid; Description of Repair Work
1. Brad Fyle, Fyle’s Excavating;
$6,795.00; Option #1, 1702’. Includes ditch cleanout, tree removal and spring leveling of spill soils.
$5,495.00; Option #2A, 672’. Includes section ditch cleanout, tree removal and spring leveling of spill soils.
$2,950.00; Option #2B, 672’ ditch area. Includes ditch area - removal of low overhanging tree limits & excavate ditch bottom.
Additional notes: Brush only to remain on site. Ditch cleaning completed by March 2009, leveling by May 15, 2009.
2. Ed Rettmann Jr. Excavating;
$2,553.00; 1702’
$3,520.00; 672’
3. Deno’s Excavating & Drainage Inc. ;
$2,553.00; Section 2, 1702’. Includes burying trees and clean to grade and level spoiled dirt.
$3,897.60; Section 1, 672’. Includes cutting and piling trees on both sides of the ditch, clean to grade and level spoiled dirt.
It was noted that the bid from Ed Rettmann Jr. did not include a description of work. Sawatzke questioned whether the contractors were told specifically what to bid on. Mattson confirmed this was the case. Russek moved to lay the bids over for one week to allow verification by Hiivala and Mattson. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 5-0.
An update was provided on Joint Ditch 14. Mattson met with the Meeker County Highway Engineer on 9-05-08. Meeker County is completing reconstruction of a portion of CSAH 15. The DNR has authorized them to reconstruct the roadway over a wetland. A small lake drains into the area. The culverts flow two different ways causing a problem with drainage. Mattson said he supported the request for repairs to the Ditch. Estimated cost is under $10,000. Hiivala said Wright County is the host County on Joint Ditch 14, with three Commissioners serving. Mattson said if Wright County approves of the request for repair, the process will be for Meeker County to work with other agencies to obtain permits. Mattson made a motion to move forward with the concept of repairing Joint Ditch 14. The motion was seconded by Russek. The Board questioned whether a Joint Ditch 14 meeting is required with Meeker and McLeod Counties. Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, was unsure whether there is a sitting ditch authority for County Ditch 14. There is authority in State Statutes allowing the work to be completed as the Ditch is existing, and it is the County’s duty as Ditch authority to repair it. Meeker County is seeking approval from Wright County. They will then obtain approval from the DNR and come back to Wright County for final approval. Asleson said Meeker County should come back to Wright County at a future date with costs. Mattson said the only thing approved by the DNR thus far is the road. It was clarified that the motion includes the concept of moving forward noting that Meeker County still has to obtain permits. Meeker, McLeod and Kandiyohi Counties have signed policies where the host county can authorize work up to $10,000 without approval of the other counties involved. The motion carried 5-0.
The claims listing was discussed. Hiivala referenced Page 15, Spectrum Solutions ($262,714.55). Hiivala said the claim will be paid from bond proceeds. Russek referred to a claim on Page 9, Munson Lakes Nutrition ($444.60). He questioned why the County would pay Munson Lakes for mileage. In review of the claim, Hiivala reported the claim should actually be paid to Margaret Munson for mileage. Hiivala will have the signature copy corrected. Russek moved to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit, with the noted correction. The motion was seconded by Heeter and carried 5-0.
Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, presented a request for the Board to adopt a resolution authoring repurchase of Parcel #118-036-001110. The residential property is located in Otsego and forfeited to the State for non-payment of taxes on 7-20-07. The property owner has applied to repurchase the property. By Statute the property owner has agreed to pay one-tenth of all delinquent taxes, penalties, and interest at the outset, along with all costs of the repurchase. The remaining payments would be made over the next 10 years. The contract for repurchase includes all taxes which would have accrued during 2008 but for the forfeiture. Asleson explained that there have been some property use issues with the City of Otsego. As requested by the City, the contract for repurchase reflects that the property owner agrees to keep the property in compliance with all of the City of Otsego’s Ordinances. If the problems continue or worsen, the City may request for the contract to be cancelled. The resolution authorizes Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, to enter into the contract. Sawatzke questioned the interest rate. Asleson thought it would be the judgment interest rate set by the State Court Administrator each year (4% for 2008). He said it was either set by Statute or by an order of the State. Eichelberg asked for clarification on the property owners’ compliance with the City of Otsego’s Ordinances. Asleson explained that if they are not followed, the process would be to cancel the contract similar to the process used in contract for deeds. The property owner can pay the contract off early if desired. Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #08-36, seconded by Russek. Asleson said the Resolution will authorize Hiivala to sign the contract. The contract is then recorded in the Recorder’s Office. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote. In response to Sawatzke, Asleson said the property owner has paid in excess of the first payment and associated costs.
A Committee Of The Whole Meeting was held on 8-26-08. At today’s County Board Meeting, Richard Norman, County Coordinator, made the following correction to the minutes: Page 3, 3rd to the last paragraph, 4th line should read, “Norman stated that the County does not have a COBRA financial obligation.” The County does not contribute to the premium payment once a person leaves employment. Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes with the one correction, seconded by Mattson. Mattson extended thanks to Hiivala for his work with LarsonAllen. The motion carried 5-0:
AUDIT EXIT CONFERENCE. Hiivala provided a summary of the 2007 draft Audit results, graphs reflecting the County’s financial condition, and a draft statement of net assets (attached). Hiivala stated that LarsonAllen completed its audit of the 2007 financial statements. The audit confirms that the financial statements are materially correct. Host stated that as part of the audit process, LarsonAllen is required to communicate significant audit policies. The purpose of the audit is to issue an unqualified opinion, provide suggestions, and look at financial statement highlights. He informed the Committee that the audit information is still in draft form. The final report will be issued by the middle of next week to meet the 9-30-08 single audit deadline. As part of the required communications of LarsonAllen, Host stated that he is to explain the firm’s responsibilities and issue an unqualified and clean opinion. Host stated that the audit is done through a risk based audit approach. This methodology is the required method. Host stated that this is the second year that LarsonAllen has performed the audit and this year was an easier process. He added further comment that his staff did not have any disagreements with management.
Statement of Net Assets:
The Statement Of Net Assets on page 15 of the bound packet (see attached) provides a government wide full accrual of the County’s net assets. It exceeds $183,123,911.00. The Statement Of Activities on page 16 shows that the County’s net assets increased almost $22 million. The Balance Sheet-Governmental Funds (pages 17 and 18) is like a traditional statement which reflects the assets of all the funds, approaching almost $100 million in assets. On pages 18 and 19, Host highlighted the Capital Projects fund by noting that a large amount is reserved for encumbrances. Host stated that the Statement of Revenues, Expenditures And Change In Fund Balances-Governmental Funds (pages 22 and 23) reflects total fund balances of $79,337,930.00. Mleziva asked why Public Health and Human Services is reflected separately in the statements. Host stated that Public Health is considered part of the Human Services fund via the rules for auditing. For accounting reasons, it is separated out. Hiivala stated that the grouping is part of COFARS.
Summary of Auditors’ Results:
Page 61 of the bound packet discusses the Summary Of Auditor’s Results. Items 1-3 of the Results are specific to the financial statements. Item 2 is basic audit language discussing deficiencies. Items 4-6 are specific to the audit. The wording in Item #9 is different than in years past: The County does not qualify, under federal guidelines, as a low-risk auditee. This change is due to some new audit standards. The new standards state that if there are any Material Weaknesses, the auditee is no longer considered low-risk. Host stated that LarsonAllen has audited 10 counties, and due to the new standards, all ten counties went from a low-risk status to not low-risk. Norman asked if a “not low-risk” status would affect the County in its bond rating. Host stated no. He stated that he thought bond companies look more at fund balances. He stated that he thinks the “not low-risk” status was related to grant requirements.
Material Weaknesses (Financial Reporting):
Host stated that six of the twelve issues from last year were fixed. LarsonAllen stated that they have found two new issues this year.
• Segregation of Duties. This issue remains due to lack of staffing.
• Audit Adjustments. This year the County significantly improved on this issue. Host stated that he has never audited a County that did not have an audit adjustment issue.
• Financial Reporting Process. Again, this weakness is due to limited personnel
• Timely Deposits. Host stated that some departments are not depositing on a timely basis. He stated that deposits should be made on a daily basis. If a daily deposit is not needed, a policy should be created.
Significant Deficiency:
• Bank Reconciliation Review. Host stated that bank reconciliations are to be completed on a timely basis and reviewed by personnel other than the preparer. Host stated that this is an easy fix. Hiivala commented that he often does the reconciliations and he will have an employee review his work.
Control Deficiency:
• Unauthorized Bank Signers. Host stated that one account had a non-current employee on it. Hiivala responded that this was fixed on the day of the discovery.
Previously Reported Items Resolved:
• Journal Entry Approval. No similar instances noted during the current year testing.
• Contracting and Procurement Procedures. Host commented that the County adopted a contracting policy in December, 2007.
Other Items For Consideration – MN Legal Compliance:
• Cash Deficits in Ditch System. Host stated that LarsonAllen found negative cash balances in the County’s ditch system. He stated that this is not unusual, however, the deficiencies need to be reported. Hiivala explained that his office is trying to fix this. The problem is that after a ditch clean-up, the assessments are not issued until the following year. The assessment may not be paid for ten years. Hiivala stated that this is a perennial comment in the audit results. He stated that the County used to cover the negative cash balance from the General Funds.
• Ditch Special Revenue Fund – Deficits In Equity Balances.
Previously Reported Items Resolved – MN Legal Compliance:
• Approval of Change Funds. Host stated that the County Board approved the change funds per review of the County minutes.
• Credit Cards. Host stated that the County adopted a credit card policy.
• Electronic Wire Transfers. Host stated that the County adopted a written policy for electronic wire transfers.
• Publishing of Financial Statements. The County did not publish the 2005 financial statements in accordance with State statutes. LarsonAllen viewed the County’s publishing of the 2005 and 2006 financial statements during 2007.
• Months Expenditures in Fund Balance – All Governmental Funds. This graph reflects the unreserved fund balances for the five large budget categories. Host stated that the Capital Projects fund balance depends on the types of activities in that year. For example, in 2008, the Capital Projects expenditures are going to be larger due to all of the construction. This can sway the calculation.
• Total Net Assets – Government –Wide Financial Statements. This graph reflects total assets less total liabilities resulting in a net worth just over $183 million. An upward trend has been realized over the past few years.
• Total Capital Assets, Net. This is one of the largest investments made (road, bridges, buildings, etc.) totaling $175,018,487.00.
• Long-Term Liabilities. Host stated that this graph shows the big picture. The County has one large liability: GO Bonds. All debt payments were made according to schedule.
• Total Revenues & Expenditures for Governmental Funds. Total expenditures exceeded the revenues during 2006 and 2007. The bond proceeds are not included in the revenue numbers in this graph. However, when spent, the debt payment will be reflected in the expenditures. This is according to audit standards. Host stated that it would look as if the County spent more in 2007 than it took in, which is not an accurate reflection. Host stated that the debt payments for the Jail/LEC are considered an “other financing source” which has a credit balance like a revenue account. Technically, it is not a revenue account. Sawatzke stated that he was surprised that 2007 did not appear worse. He stated that 2008 would appear to have a larger disparity. Host stated that Sawatzke’s statement is correct. Hiivala asked Host to footnote the graph for next year. Hiivala asked that Host exclude capital expenditures from the graph next year. Russek stated that he agreed, as the graph should only show general operations.
• Revenues-General, Special Revenue, Debt Service Funds, Capital Project Funds. Host stated that this graph shows the predominant revenue sources.
Host forewarned the Board that in accordance with GASB 45, the County will have to hire an actuary to calculate the liability of post employment benefits for employees electing COBRA coverage. Hiivala explained that LarsonAllen cannot provide this service as it is in conflict with their auditing activities. Norman stated that the County does not have a COBRA financial obligation. The employee elects to continue coverage through COBRA and pays for their medical benefits. Host stated that there is a standard implicit rate calculation. It does impact the County and its benefits. Hiivala stated that working with LarsonAllen has been an exceptional experience. He stated that he would present to the Board the idea of sending a letter to the State Auditor requesting that they extend their three-year exemption allowing the County to be audited by an independent firm. Hiivala stated that he would continue to work with Host to adopt policies which will be presented to the Board for approval. He stated that they might look at developing a ditch policy. (End of Committee Of The Whole Minutes)
An Owner’s Committee Meeting was held on 9-02-08. At today’s County Board Meeting, Russek moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Sawatzke. Mattson questioned whether bids have been received for the bituminous/concrete for the parking lot and drive. Sawatzke felt the bids were received approximately nine months ago. The motion carried 5-0:
Buikema stated that he would like to provide an update on PCO#94 – BP#3 PR#045 which was discussed at the 8-19-08 Owner’s Committee Meeting. The PCO was to add four windows in the Women’s Dayroom, as well as add a discretionary film to the lower windows.
Norman introduced Brad Hatfield, the new Building Supervisor for the Jail/LEC. Hatfield oversaw the building of the Monticello High school and supervised the maintenance of the building for several years. Norman stated that Hatfield would attend the remaining Owner’s Committee Meetings. Sawatzke welcomed Hatfield.
Streich provided a project update (see attached “Schedule Look-A-Head 2 Week”). Streich commented that all kitchen equipment was delivered and is ready for installation. Today’s rain has delayed the final grading and backfilling of the curbing. A&P anticipates that Knife River will be able to rock the north parking lot by the end of the week so that asphalt is poured the final week of September.
Streich stated that they are approaching the time of year to start thinking about assigning snow plowing duties. Sawatzke asked if the parking lot would contain interior islands. Sawatzke stated that he has concerns regarding snowplowing. Russek stated that he has similar concerns about plowing around the islands. He asked if there are light poles in the islands. Hayes asked if the islands could be painted. Streich stated that some of the curbing would be painted. Buikema stated that in the public area, there is an island with landscaping and sidewalks. In the rear of the facility, KKE purposely removed the winged islands to ease plowing efforts. KKE designed bollards to protect the light fixtures. The wings of the island will be painted in lieu of concrete curbed wings. Streich stated that the west parking lot is the only issue as the island will contain a sidewalk, trees, and landscaping. A bobcat will need to plow that portion. Norman proposed placing colored rods within the curbing to identify island curbing. Hayes asked who plowed the Jail/LEC site last year. Streich stated that the Highway Department kept the site clear. Norman stated that Parks, using equipment purchased through the Building Maintenance budget, plows the Government Center’s parking lots. Russek stated that the Sheriff’s Department would be on site at the first of the year. Sawatzke stated that it seemed sensible to have Parks plow the Jail/LEC since they have the equipment. Miller stated that the new facility would be an extensive area to plow. Hayes stated that he spoke with Marc Mattice, Parks Administrator, about plowing the Jail/LEC site. Mattice is reluctant to commit to plowing the Jail/LEC. Sawatzke stated that the Committee has two months to make a determination on snow removal. Sawatzke asked what the Maintenance staff has for snow removal equipment. Hayes stated that they have lawn tractors that are converted to snow blowers. Torfin asked what the timing is in regard to asphalting the parking lot and Braddock Avenue. Streich stated that when he hears of a confirmed date for the parking lot pour, he would contact Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, to coordinate the two projects. The parking lot will be poured first.
Blotske stated that there were no PCO’s approved by Torfin during this period.
1. PCO#092 – BP#043 Additional Angles At Dayroom Handrails - $7,212.00.
Buikema stated that this PCO is to install additional angles on Dayroom handrails. Due to the length and height of the handrails, the handrails vibrate when handled. Adding the angles will provide strength and anchors to the rails. Blotske stated that there is an urgency to strengthen the handrails before the painter arrives on site to prevent an additional change order for extra painting fees. The Committee unanimously agreed to approve proceeding with PCO#092 – BP#043 Additional Angles At Dayroom Handrails - $7,212.00.
The current contingency amount is $657,439.00, not taking into account the approval of PCO#092.
Buikema presented a Memorandum dated 9-02-08 (see attached) providing clarification on PCO#94 – BP#3 PR#045 which was discussed at the 8-19-08 Owner’s Committee Meeting. Buikema stated that there are a set of DOC “Grey Rules”, which are rules that the DOC has not officially had the Legislature approve. The “Grey Rules” evolve from project to project. According to the “Grey Rules”:
1) Natural light shall be provided in each inmate housing area.
2) When natural light is provided in a dayroom as an alternative to cells, each dayroom provides a minimum of 12 square feet of transparent glazing with a view to the outside, plus two additional square feet of glazing per inmate whose cell does not contain an opening or window with a view to the outside.
Buikema stated that according to the standard, the Jail/LEC needs 12 square feet, plus 28 square feet for 14 inmates, or a total of 40 square feet. The Woman’s Dayroom has 78 square feet. Buikema stated that in summary, the rule is met for natural light as the current rules under development permit “translucent glazing to the outside”. Buikema added further comment that he personally feels when the ceiling and light fixtures are in, and it is painted, the room will appear brighter. He stated that the film will take care of the line of site issue, yet still addresses the need for natural light. Sawatzke questioned the definition of translucent film. Buikema explained that the window film is like a glass shower door that has a light sandblasted treatment. The film will allow light through so that you can see images, but not details. Sawatzke stated that according to Buikema’s memorandum, the requirement for natural light is met. Russek stated that he agreed. Buikema stated that the County runs the risk of the DOC making a later determination that the rule regarding natural light is not met. Russek stated that the DOC would have to provide specific rules pertaining to their determination. Norman asked Blotske if she would issue a PCO for the window film. Blotske stated that she submitted it to Torfin. Blotske stated that the window film in the Women’s Dayroom is valued at $915.00.
E. PROJECT FF&E BUDGET $1,879,314.00.
The current FFE Budget amount is $1,399,391.00.
Sawatzke stated that Commissioner Mattson wanted him to ask if all of the computers in the Government Center are going out to the new Jail/LEC. Swing stated yes. Torfin stated that a few computers would stay in the Government Center for the Correction Officers to use.
Buikema stated that KKE is not happy with the metal panels finish or the precast concrete panels. The metal panels are oil panning, an affect created when the metal is under stress. KKE is attempting to resolve the issue. The precast concrete panels appear to have an uneven finish. Some panels have more exposed granite than others. Blotske stated that the concrete contractor is on site patching and washing the panels to correct the finish. Buikema stated that KKE’s engineers undersized the plumbing connections for the washing machines. Additional plumbing is being designed for the water supply lines. Torfin announced that A&P has provided a semi-trailer, free of charge, for the County to use for storage. He commended A&P for being helpful.
Sawatzke stated that there is a scheduling conflict with the 9-30-08 Owner’s Committee Meeting. A Quad Counties meeting is scheduled to take place in Stearns County that morning. The Committee unanimously agreed to skip the 9-30-08 Meeting unless an emergency arises. The Committee will meet at 1:00 p.m. on 9-16-08 and 10-07-08.
(End of Owner’s Committee Minutes)
The Owner’s Committee will not meet today.
Laid over from the last meeting, discussion occurred on the Conservation Award that was highlighted in the August MN County Newspaper. The question at the last meeting was whether the award is the same that the SWCD is applying for. Russek was in contact with Kerry Saxton, SWCD, and it has been clarified that the awards are different. Saxton will proceed to make application for the Conservation Award on the County’s behalf by the deadline of 10-03-08.
Norman presented a draft resolution setting the 2009 draft Budget & draft Certified Taxable Levy. State rules require local jurisdictions to pass a draft Budget & Certified Levy by September 15th. From that point forward, the Levy can decrease but cannot increase. Heeter moved to adopt Resolution #08-37, seconded by Sawatzke. Mattson referenced a comment he made in January regarding the 2009 budget, where he stated he would not consider department budget requests if they were similar to those in the 2008 budget. After proceeding through the Budget sessions, he felt more positive on the requests presented. The budget requests were reduced. Mattson extended thanks to Departments for working with the Board in this regard. The motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote:
Resolution #08-37
BE IT RESOLVED that the Wright County Board of Commissioners hereby establishes draft 2009 budgets as follows:
ROAD & BRIDGE 21,299,394
DEBT SERVICE 4,461,453
