WRIGHT COUNTY BOARD MINUTES
JANUARY 19, 2010
The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Sawatzke, Mattson, Russek, Thelen, and Eichelberg present.
Russek moved to approve the 1-12-10 County Board Minutes as presented, seconded by Eichelberg, carried 5-0.
Petitions were accepted to the Agenda as follows: Item For Consideration #3, “Announcement” (Mattson). Eichelberg moved to approve the Agenda as amended, seconded by Russek, carried unanimously.
On a motion by Eichelberg, second by Sawatzke, all voted to approve the Consent Agenda:
1. Performance Appraisals: L. Martie, Atty; T. Piram, P&Z; K. Davis, Sheriff.
2. Approve/Authorize Signatures On Law Enforcement Contract With City Of Clearwater.
3. O/T Report, Period Ending 1-08-10.
1. 2010 Tobacco License Renewals: Delano Legion Post 377 (Delano City); American Legion Post #131 (Maple Lake City); JVJ II Inc. (Rockford City).
1. Approval Of “Wright County Highway Right Of Way Plat No. 63”, CSAH 12 Construction-SAP 86-612-17.
Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, introduced discussion on a request from MinnCan relating to Joint Ditch 15. Kerry Saxton, SWCD, said he was contacted by Minnesota Pipeline Company. When the company installed a pipe under County Road 15, only 42” of cover was placed over the pipe. By State Statute, 54” of cover is to be used everywhere. The request from Minnesota Pipeline Company is to approve leaving the cover at 42”. Saxton said he is bringing this request to the County Board as they previously approved the install of the pipe. Saxton suggested the Board send a letter to Minnesota Pipeline Company requesting survey information of the area. The information should include survey information for 100’ in front of and beyond the pipe and the closest culvert upstream and downstream (for review of ditch levels). Saxton said the ditch is deep so there is plenty of cover. After discussion, it was decided that Saxton should draft the letter for County Board Chair signature. Sawatzke moved to authorize sending a letter to Minnesota Pipeline Company requesting the information outlined by Saxton. The letter is to be signed by the County Board Chair. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 5-0. Hiivala said that if Wright County incurs any costs, he will seek reimbursement from Minnesota Pipeline Company. Hiivala will update Meeker and McLeod Counties. Sawatzke asked whether the survey work has already been completed. Saxton was unsure whether surveys have been completed of these exact culvert or ditch locations. However, he felt the information could be easily obtained through GPS technologies.
Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy Attorney, said quotes were received for demolition of buildings at 8388 Needham Avenue NE in Otsego. The two quotes received included J.L. Schmitz & Sons ($4,325), and Gibby’s ($4,325). Asleson said the quote from J.L. Schmitz & Sons was received second. The process does not involve a competitive bidding system due to the dollar value involved. Both contractors confirmed that the household waste will be removed from the site and the appliances will be recycled. Asleson was comfortable with either contractor completing the work, as both have experience and both bids were similar in the scope of work. Gibby’s was used for clean up of the Harrison property in Albion Township approximately 1.5 years ago. Asleson said they did a nice job. Sawatzke asked whether tax is included in the quotes. Asleson felt the quotes were all inclusive but will confirm this. Tax may need to be paid on what is hauled to the landfill. Because both quotes came in at the same price and the County Board felt comfortable with either contractor, a coin was flipped to decide who the work should be awarded to. With the coin flip being in favor of J.L. Schmitz & Sons, Sawatzke made a motion to select them as the contractor for the work. The motion was seconded by Thelen. Mattson suggested that a letter be sent to both contractors informing them of the action taken and to thank them for the bid. The motion carried 5-0.
The claims listing was discussed. Russek referenced a claim on Page 3, Minnesota Counties Computer Association ($413.59), for expenses related to the Manatron System for the 4th Quarter of 2009. He said the Board recently took action not to pay any Manatron claims for 2010, but it appears those included on the claims listing relate to 2009. Hiivala confirmed this to be correct. Sawatzke noted that the Manatron System did not work in the 4th Quarter of 2009; in fact, it caused more problems as opposed to providing a service. Asleson said in review of the contract, the County might be obligated to pay. However, there are meetings being held later this week with other counties involved with Manatron. Asleson said it might be beneficial to defer the payment for the time being. He added that according to the contract, the County may be contractually obligated. However, the question is whether the County is receiving anything for the payment. Sawatzke made a motion not to pay the 4th Quarter claims to Manatron at this time. The motion was seconded by Thelen and carried 5-0. Russek moved to pay the remainder of the claims listed in the abstract, subject to audit. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg. Mattson referenced a claim on Page 13, MN Department of Corrections ($18,997.25), and noted that the STS Program comes at a cost to the County. The motion carried 5-0.
Asleson presented a draft Dangerous Dog Ordinance for review. Wright County contracts with Crossroads Animal Shelter to provide paperwork and notification services. Crossroads Animal Shelter approached the County with a draft of the Ordinance last summer. The draft was based largely upon Sherburne County‘s Ordinance. The Ways & Means Committee met several times to review and finalize the draft. Asleson said that State law addresses dangerous dogs, requirements, and penalties for those who fail to follow the law. What lacks in State law is the penalty and appeal process. This is the main reason Wright County needs an Ordinance. Wright County can charge a person with a misdemeanor for failing to register a dangerous dog. However, the dog owner may come to court and claim the animal does not meet the criteria as a dangerous dog. The Ordinance will set up a hearing process for both dangerous and potentially dangerous dogs. Asleson referenced a change on Page 17 of the draft, last paragraph, 4th line. The crossed out language will be removed from the Ordinance. He will review the draft for any similar changes. Eichelberg questioned whether cities will follow the County’s Ordinance. Asleson responded that this would be a County-wide Ordinance. Cities and townships can opt out if they are the animal control authority within that jurisdiction and if their ordinance complies with State law. Asleson said the City of Buffalo has indicated they will follow their own Ordinance. The City of Delano is leaning toward following the County’s Ordinance but they do have some language in their City Ordinance dealing with dangerous dogs. Asleson said if the County Ordinance is approved, he would notify cities and townships. The effective date will be 3-01-10. Mattson questioned who is responsible for any bills related to a dangerous dog picked up in a township when no one claims the animal. Asleson said if a township follows the County Ordinance, the County is responsible for the bill. The Ordinance language does allow these costs to be billed to the dog owner. Per their contract with Wright County, Crossroads Animal Shelter does try to collect any costs incurred from the dog owner. For matters involving dogs at large (not dangerous dogs), the cost may be the responsibility of the township. He said the Sheriff wants it made clear that the County is the animal control authority for dangerous dogs but not those at large. Thelen moved to adopt Ordinance #10-01 adopting the Wright County Dangerous Dog Ordinance, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0. A summary of the Ordinance follows:
The Wright County Dangerous And Potentially Dangerous Dog Ordinance will allow the County to regulate the ownership and possession of dangerous dogs and potentially dangerous dogs, as authorized by Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 347. The purpose of the Ordinance is to protect the public from such dogs and to reduce the threat to the health and safety of people and other animals that may come into contact with such dogs. Owners of dogs declared dangerous or potentially dangerous will have strict requirements to follow. Failure to follow these requirements may result in the owner being charged with a criminal offense. Certain owners may have their dogs confiscated or be prohibited altogether from dog ownership. A complete copy of the Ordinance can be obtained from the Wright County Coordinator’s Office.
(End of Ordinance summary)
A Personnel Committee Meeting was held on 1-13-10. At today’s County Board Meeting, the minutes were reviewed. The minutes follow along with discussion at today’s Board Meeting (in italics):
I. POSITION OPENINGS
A. Family Based Services Provider, Public Health. Mary Nesseth, Public Health Nurse Supervisor, presented documentation to fill a vacant Family Based Services Provider (FBSP) position. Current employees’ resignation was received 1-05-2010; however, the position has been vacant since 07-2009 (see handout). Eichelberg questioned the qualifications needed for this position. Nesseth stated that it requires a high school graduation and includes lots of on the job training. The position cares for clients 60+ years of age and healthy foot clinics. Currently there are three staff members doing the work of four. She stated that the case loads are large and that clients have been discharged in the interim. Nesseth added that currently there are not enough Public Health Nurses; therefore, the aides are part of providing services to families and maintaining lower costs.
Sawatzke questioned the billing for services totaling $20,000 from various programs. Nesseth stated that there are a variety of programs that the Family Based Service provider can apply to for reimbursement. Aides can bill for their time in clients homes, performing foot clinics and other care provided. Sawatzke questioned where the funding was used over the last six months when the position was vacant. Nesseth stated that it was lost. Sawatzke questioned the rate of pay for this position. Lori Pawelk, Personnel Representative, stated starting pay is $15.23 and hour. Recommendation: Request for a detailed description of funding to be provided. Fulfillment for the Family Based Service Provider will be laid over to the next Personnel Committee, 02-10-10.
At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke stated that this position was referred to the 2-10-10 Personnel Committee Meeting. This is to allow staff to provide documentation on what revenue this position will bring in relative to the expenses associated with the position. Sawatzke said the information provided was not detailed enough to analyze it.
B. Social Worker, Adult Unit, Human Services.
LeeAnn Thimell, Social Services Supervisor, presented documentation to fulfill a social worker position in the Adult Services Unit (see handout). She added that this is a waiver position. Waiver programs are where Medical Assistant (MA) dollars are approved to be used in non-MA ways to keep people in the community versus entering a nursing home. It was clarified that this position has the potential to bring in $126,000 a year which is after billable time. Sawatzke questioned the workload in regard to reimbursement. Thimell stated an average of 30 new referrals come in each month; however, the current case load does not close 30 cases each month. She continued that it would be hard to defer the new cases to current staff if this position is not filled. Pawelk stated the rate of pay for the position is $17.64 an hour with benefits. She continued that the position requires a Bachelors degree in sociology or psychology. The position would be posted internally first and then externally. Pawelk feels that based off the number of applications received in the past, this position will not be hard to fill. Recommendations: Authorize request to hire a Social Worker in the Adult Unit.
At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke said the recommendation to fill the position was made because: 1) there is a need; 2) the reimbursement from the State and Federal government can far exceed the actual cost of the position for the work done; and 3) there is a savings realized from people not being in a nursing home (savings to the State and Federal government).
C. Social Worker, DD Unit, Human Services.
Debbra Swanson, Developmental Disabilities Supervisor, presented documentation for replacement of a Social Worker in the Development Disabilities unit. The current employee is retiring on 01-29-10 (see handout). She requested that this position be filled due to the high case load. Eichelberg stated there is no indication if state aid will be decreased and if there is a decrease, the amount. Swanson replied that these are MA cases and in the budget, we have received more than what was spent. Sawatzke stated that it is not a good comparison if we have expenditures and do not include staff salary. He questioned where expenditures for transportation, family support, and living are paid from. Many of the expenditures come from state grants. Swanson stated that the current staff does an awesome job at obtaining reimbursements. Many of the expenditures come from state grants. Eichelberg asked what the job qualifications detail. Pawelk replied that a Bachelors degree in social work is required. Swanson stated that a new hire would have a learning curve that once mastered, would bring in reimbursements at a higher rate. Recommendation: Authorize request to hire a Social Worker in Developmental Disabilities Unit.
At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke said it was explained at the Committee Meeting that the State reimbursement will equal or exceed the cost of the position.
D. Social Worker, Mental Health Unit, Human Services.
Lori Schmidt, Social Services Supervisor, presented documentation for hiring of a Social Worker III in the Mental Health Unit (see handout). This position was previously approved by the Board and no qualified candidates were obtained. The current Social Worker II has recently resigned and a request to hire a Social Worker II to fulfill the position is being requested. Swanson stated that she would like to advertise for a Social Worker III again and if no candidates are qualified, advertising for a Social Worker II position start immediately. Swanson noted that a case load of 30 is recommended by the state. If this position is lost, the case load would go up to 37 which would lead to a client being placed on a waiting list. This position requires monthly visits and many clients are seen weekly. Currently the unit is working with a decreased staff due to a medical leave which has resulted in a decrease of efficiency. Swanson stated her long term goal is to bring clinical supervision in house to avoid billing for outside services. Pawelk stated that there were no qualified candidates previously. The current rate of pay is $21.25 and hour which is on the low side of the pay scale. The Social Worker III position is in high demand and qualifications include a mental health background. In addition, Pawelk stated, that by having a mental health specialist in house follows state recommendations. If the new hired staff does not meet these qualifications, other staff must provide supervision. Pawelk stated that to save time she would like to post twice and have the ability to move directly to a Social Worker II if a Social Worker III is not obtained. RECOMMENDATION: Authorize request to hire a Social Worker in the Mental Health Unit.
At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke explained there is a Social Worker II leaving, even though there is authorization (obtained in the past) for a Social Worker III position. This provides the flexibility to do things in house, which saves the County money from having to purchase outside services. Human Services will attempt to hire a Social Worker III. If they cannot, they will hire a Social Worker II.
E. Custodian, Building Care & Maintenance.
Al Buskey, Building Maintenance Supervisor, requested a replacement for the Human Services Building due to the retirement of a custodian. The building was staffed with two full-time custodians. Current work is handled by subs; however, all work is not being completed. Sawatzke questioned the number of staff allotted versus the number of staff currently employed. Buskey stated that full staff is approved at a total of 21 and there are currently 18 custodians. Eichelberg questioned the hiring time frame and if the position will be advertised. Barb Petersen, Personnel Representative, said that the position would be advertised externally for a minimum of seven days. Pawelk stated that it could take up to three months before someone would actually be hired due to the process including back ground checks, physicals, and finger printing. Recommendation: Authorize request to hire a Custodian within Building Care and Maintenance for the Human Services building.
At today’s County Board Meeting, Mattson voiced frustration and concern with the proposed recommendations to hire staff. He referenced surrounding counties’ efforts to reduce spending by cutting budgets, laying off staff or not filling positions, and freezing wages. He said Wright County has nearly the highest budget in the State and just implemented a 2.5% wage increase for employees. He thought everyone around is tightening up, including small businesses, yet Wright County continues to spend. Sawatzke said the recommendations in Items IB, IC, and ID are based upon staff providing information reflecting that the positions have the ability to bring in greater revenue than what the position pays. Sawatzke said with regard to Item IE, the custodial staff will be down by three if the Custodian position is not filled. The position provides services at the Human Services Center. There are currently two custodial positions at this location. Sawatzke said if the Custodian position is not filled, the County could save dollars. Mattson supported filling the custodial position and not the remaining positions. He referenced a financial report from Human Services and questioned where the revenues generated by these positions are reflected in the report. He understands that Human Services revenues are declining. If these positions were bringing in revenues, this would not be happening. Eichelberg said there might be larger needs in Human Services because of the tough economic times. Sawatzke referenced Item IB, replacement of a Social Worker, Adult Unit, Human Services. He said the wage for this position is $17.64. The backup documentation reflects that, “…With the exception of the two clients whose eligibility is not yet determined, case management for all of these cases is reimbursable at a rate between $92.36/hr for CADI and $96.04 for EW and AC. Generally speaking 60-65% of a workers time is spent in reimbursable activities…”. Sawatzke said this reflects that there is no cost to the County to have the position. The position is funded with State and Federal dollars for the purpose of keeping people out of nursing homes. Mattson felt there should be a line item in the Human Services budget that reflects these revenues. Sawatzke said staff provided budget information at the Committee Meeting. Thelen suggested that this request could be brought forth at the Human Services Board Meeting. A monthly summary could be provided reflecting these line items. Russek said he was not at the Committee Meeting to review the information provided. However, the Committee structure is the forum to discuss and analyze information. With regard to mental health cases, he felt it was better to handle the cases so the people do not end up in Jail. State and Federal funding is available to fund positions that work with these cases, but not for costs associated with jailing a person. Mattson said he wanted to vote on the requests individually as he will not be voting in favor of filling the Human Services positions. Eichelberg moved to approve the request to hire a Custodian (Item IE) within Building Care and Maintenance for the Human Services building. The motion was seconded by Thelen and carried 5-0. Eichelberg made a motion to approve the remainder of the recommendations (Items IA, IB, IC, ID) and to approve the minutes. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried 4-1, with Mattson casting the nay vote.
(End of 1-13-10 Personnel Committee Minutes & discussion at today’s Board Meeting)
A Technology Committee Meeting was held on 1-13-10. At today’s County Board Meeting, the following correction was made to the minutes: Page 1, Paragraph 1, Line 3, change from “1-30-09” to “1-30-10” (Eichelberg). Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Russek. Russek noted that the project timeline is included as an attachment to the minutes. The motion carried 5-0:
UPDATE, 800 MHz RADIO PROJECT.
Swing stated that the project is near completion. According to the timeline (see attached GeoComm timeline dated 12-23-09), the System Cut Over/Beneficial Use is slated for 1-30-10. Swing stated that they do not foresee any surprises or unknown costs to arise prior to the Cut Over. Swing stated that training on the use of the radios will take place in January/February for the Fire Departments, Police, and Sheriff. “Train the Trainer” training for County Sheriff staff starts on Saturday, 1-16-10. End user training will take place in February. Howell stated that a few of members of the Fire Departments and law enforcement staff have radios. So far, he has not received any negative feedback.
Fingalson stated that Public Works would not be trained until spring, 2010. Fingalson asked if a Sheriff staff member would conduct the training. Howell stated that the schedule and assigned trainer could be discussed as the time draws near. He noted that it is a four-hour training session. Russek commented that the training expense would be cheaper if it was done in-house. Swing explained that the State of Minnesota requires an 800 MHz administrator and Howell is that person. Swing stated that he spoke with Mike Mazzitello, GeoComm, this morning and they have a good understanding of the upcoming deadlines. He stated that GeoComm is under contract to complete inspections and recommend final sign-off. As the consultant, they are to ensure that the system is fully operational, recommend final sign-off, and recommend final payment to Motorola. Eichelberg clarified that GeoComm’s contract is not time-based. Their contracted duties are to fulfill the successful completion of the 800 MHz radio project. The PSR (Public Safety Radio Committee) will determine the frequency of future meetings. They will continue to meet to discuss upgrades, concerns, problems, and operational details. Russek asked Swing if he anticipates any additional hidden costs. Swing referred the Committee to the handout: “800 MHz Funding Report January 2010” (see attached). He stated that the total Bond Issue Estimate for infrastructure and subscriber radios from fourth quarter, 2008, was $4,096,024. He stated that a 6% contingency ($154,895) was included to cover additional infrastructure costs. He discussed the additional costs that were recently incurred against the contingency:
$ 333 Diesel fuel for generators
2,613 Microwave Terminating equip at
1,305 Microwave maintenance from
12-1-09 through 3-1-10
1,885 Electrical work at tower sites
(bringing electrical into shelter)
168 November 2009 Electricity Bill
15,000 Tower Monitoring System
14,805 Subscriber Radio 2010 Software
Subscription (900 radios @
10,000 Transitioning consulting services
He clarified that the $15,000 for the tower monitoring system is an estimate. He stated that the monitoring system would detect lost power to the tower and send an alert to Dispatch. Eichelberg asked Swing whether some of the contingencies are firm dollar amounts. Swing stated that the numbers are a mix of firm and estimated expenses. Swing stated that the transitioning consulting services would be with GeoComm. These services would be over and above what they are currently contracted for. Again, this number is an estimate. Swing stated that the project is estimated to have a surplus of $303,045. Swing stated that the budgeted numbers were good numbers; yet, the County will likely see a surplus. Eichelberg asked if there is a potential for additional hidden costs. Swing stated that there could be a small potential, but not likely. Fingalson asked when Highway would see a bill for the maintenance charges. Swing stated that he should expect to see the first month’s tower lease within a week. Fingalson asked whether some of the contingency monies would be allocated to the tower leases. Swing stated yes, which is noted in the Funding Report. Russek asked Fingalson if these costs were budgeted for. Fingalson stated that Highway did build this into their budget. Swing directed the Committee to the handout titled: “800 MHz Radio Maintenance 2010; Budget 2010 Distribution based on Ratio of Radios”. He stated that a ratio was figured based on number of radios. Public Works has 111 radios, with a ratio of .258 of the total number of radios. They are budgeted to pay $21,660 in 2010 maintenance costs. Swing stated that the tower rentals are the significant portion of the maintenance costs. Russek asked if $718,200 was the anticipated grant allotment. Howell stated that $718,200 was the known guaranteed amount for a couple of years. There was confusion when the discussions initially started in pursuing grant money for this project. Swing stated that the grant was to cover up to 50% of the County’s infrastructure costs. The total amount of the State allotment was $2 million. Howell stated that the infrastructure costs were $2.5 million. He stated that Wright County fared well in its receipt of grant monies. Howell noted a few western counties did not receive grant money or a break on their sales tax. Swing stated that he spoke with Scott Wiggens at the State who indicated that once the project obtains its final sign-off, the $718,200 check would be sent within a week. Swing stated that he anticipates receiving that check in March, 2010. The Public Safety Interoperable Communications (PSIC) grant amount will be $42,141. Eichelberg asked if the generator located at the Public Works Building is fully operational. Swing stated that the generator was fully operational at the end of December, 2009. Howell stated that the members of the Fire Departments that are using the radios have provided positive feedback. Kandiyohi County has been online since mid-December, 2009. They too have been positive about the transition. Sherburne County has been on line since mid-summer, 2009. Meeker and McLeod Counties will make the transition within the next two years.
(End of 1-13-10 Technology Committee Minutes & discussion at today’s Board Meeting)
Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution #10-07 for final acceptance of the 2009 Overlays, Contract #0901, with Knife River Corporation, North Central, Sauk Rapids MN. The motion includes authorizing final payment of $29,330.41. The motion was seconded by Russek and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Mattson announced that Gordon Burkland passed away. He was very active in the community and formerly served as a County Commissioner.
