WRIGHT COUNTY BOARD MINUTES
AUGUST 2, 2011
The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Sawatzke, Mattson, Russek, and Eichelberg present. Commissioner Thelen was absent.
On a motion by Mattson, second by Eichelberg, all voted to approve the 7-26-11 County Board Minutes.
Petitions were accepted to the Agenda as follows: Aud./Treas. Item #3, “County Ditch 38 Potential Repair” (Hiivala); Item For Consid. #3, “Set Emergency Closed Meeting With Frank Madden @ 9:50 A.M.” (Norman). Eichelberg moved to approve the Agenda as amended. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 4-0.
Eichelberg moved to approve the Consent Agenda, seconded by Mattson. Mattson referenced Item B1, “Approve Tobacco License Transfer For New Walgreen’s #13938, Eff. 8-18-11 (Monticello City).” He asked whether there previously was a Walgreens in Monticello. Gloria Gooler, Administrative Confidential Secretary, responded that the request relates to a change of address for Walgreen’s. The motion carried 4-0 to approve the Agenda:

Pat O’Malley, Jail Administrator, presented a retirement plaque to Corrections Officer Mike Aitchison. Aitchison was hired in 1988 as one of the first Civilian Corrections Officers. He was described as reliable, a good employee, and active in the community. He is on the dive team and was part of the honor guard for several years. Aitchison was thanked for his 23 years of service.
Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, brought forth discussion of an appointment to the Clearwater River Watershed Board. Two applications have been received, Marvin Brunsell (Annandale) and Dave Wagner (Annandale). Brunsell currently serves on the CRWD Board and his position has come up for appointment. Hiivala said it is normal procedure to advertise prior to making an appointment. Eichelberg said both candidates seem qualified. Wagner’s resume’ is not complete but reflects that additional information will be presented upon request. Brunsell distributed a copy of projects the CRWD has worked on in the past two years. He extended appreciation to the County Board for their support. In response to Sawatzke, Brunsell said he has been the CRWD President for the past 9-12 years. Sawatzke said placing Brunsell in this position is a significant statement from the other members of the CRWD. It was the consensus that this appointment should not be made today as Thelen is absent from the meeting. The appointment is from the District she represents and she also serves as the County Board’s appointment to the CRWD Board. Sawatzke moved to lay this issue over for one week, seconded by Mattson, carried 4-0.
Hiivala received a request from Keith Duske for repair to County Ditch 38 (Woodland Section 3 and Marysville Section 34). The request is to review the Ditch to determine why the system is not draining properly. Duske indicates his property and the trailer park area are being impacted. Today, Kerry Saxton, SWCD, presented photographs of the area. One photograph shows a flooded area of about 120 acres on the south side of TH 12. There is a 14” tile that lays flat and takes a long time to drain. The tile is capable of handling about 7 gals./second. Another photograph shows the outlet which is tunneled as there is no longer a pipe. The water flows directly to the tile at a rate of 5-7 gals./second. This is the volume to be expected but the water flow should not have this much head on it. When the water slows, the force will drop and it may not drain properly, causing the water to reservoir. Another photograph shows that the outlet is under a box elder tree. The water appears to flow through a treed area. Saxton feels there is a good chance the trees have penetrated the tile with their root system. Saxton requested authorization to dig a hole in the treed area to determine if it is under pressure. If the water comes up and out, it would indicate this is part of the problem. Both landowners would have to be contacted ahead of time as the water may flow on their crop land. He expects the water to flow back to the treed area and then out through the Ditch system. Saxton estimated the cost to dig would be under $500. This could increase if they have problems locating the tile. If that is the case, he would like to continue investigating the problem. He requested authorization for up to $1,000. He explained that if this is a small job completed by one of the neighbors, it may not be expensive. However, the cost would increase if a contractor is hired and equipment is brought in. Saxton recommended that this section needs to be repaired at some point including removal of the trees and installation of a proper outlet pipe. This work cannot be completed at this time due to the heavy water flow. Russek said the intake is probably plugged with cattails. Saxton said the intake is under an estimated 4-5 feet of water. With that type of pressure, Saxton felt if it were plugged there is a good chance it has cleared. Mattson asked whether the manhole cover in the trailer park was removed to check the water flow. Saxton said it was. The water is swirling but they were unable to see the pipes. He would like to check the elevation in that location after the pressure is released. The rain is not stopping and there is a lot of water to move through that system. Eichelberg moved to authorize up to $1,000 to investigate the problems on County Ditch 38, seconded by Mattson. Mattson asked whether the County must obtain quotes for the work. Hiivala stated this will not be required because of the dollar amount involved. The motion carried 4-0.
The claims listing was reviewed. Russek referenced a claim on Page 17, Highway, to ASTECH ($250,086.51) for a sealcoat contract. The Highway Engineer is scheduled later in the meeting, so Russek requested that the claim be approved under the condition that the Highway Engineer recommends doing so. Russek referenced a claim on Page 13, Pete Jonas ($150.00), for nuisance beaver removal. Hiivala said the cost is for removal of two beavers at $90 plus $60 mileage. Russek asked whether the Swanson Brothers still offer this service. Mattson said they do. He recalled the Swanson Brothers charge $20/beaver plus mileage. Russek felt someone should supply the Parks Administrator with the contact information for Swanson Brothers in an effort to save some money for this service. Sawatzke referenced a claim to LaPlant Sanitation for dumpster rental ($612.58) at the Jail and inquired what the claim relates to. Richard Norman, County Coordinator, stated that this is probably the monthly charge for dumpsters at the Jail/LEC. Hiivala confirmed this. Eichelberg moved to pay the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit, with the removal of the claim to ASTECH for $250,086.51 for recommendation by the Highway Engineer. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 4-0.
Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, recommended approving the Resolution of Final Acceptance for the Microsurfacing Project, Contract #11-07, with ASTECH Corp. of St. Cloud, MN. The motion includes authorizing final payment of $250,086.51. The project included work completed on Hwy. 8 and Hwy. 37 in the Maple Lake area. Eichelberg moved to adopt Resolution #11-38, Final Acceptance for the Microsurfacing Project, Contract #11-07, with ASTECH Corp. of St. Cloud, MN, and to authorize final payment of $250,086.51. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke and carried unanimously.
Laid over from the last meeting, Fingalson brought forth discussion on the proposal from Pearson Bros. to sealcoat the Heritage Center parking lot and driveway. Fingalson was in contact with Laureen Bodin, City of Buffalo, and Al Buskey, Wright County Building Maintenance. They both support the proposed material. Fingalson said the product clearly meets the City’s requirements and that is what they use in their projects. Fingalson also was in contact with Sally Stevens of the Wright County Historical Society. She will assist with coordination of the work with the Historical Society. Stevens is from Canada, where this type of product is commonly used, and also supports its use. Fingalson recommended that the Board authorize the proposal from Pearson Bros. so the work can be completed in 2011. Mattson said he is concerned that the County is spending $3,500 more for a project that will be torn up during Mn/DOT’s TH 25 project. Fingalson said that at the last Board Meeting, he conveyed that Mn/DOT has changed their construction plans for TH 25. The portion of TH 25 near the Historical Society will not be included in the project. Fingalson said this is all the more reason to go with a more permanent solution for the parking lot. Mattson said there is a sealing business in Maple Lake who indicated that the product is okay in open parking lots where no grass mowing occurs. Fingalson stated the project will include the lot being compacted, rolled, and swept twice. The sweeping will occur after the product is applied and then again three weeks later. Fingalson said the product is being used on 3rd St. near Buffalo Clinic and there is no loose material. Fingalson said this product is appropriate for application at the Historical Society. Sawatzke made a motion to approve the recommendation of the Highway Engineer to approve the proposal from Pearson Bros. to sealcoat the Heritage Center parking lot and driveway, $6,050.00, with funding from Budget 100, Site Improvements. The motion was seconded by Eichelberg and carried 3-1 with Mattson casting the nay vote.
At 9:30 A.M., Russek closed the bid process to the CSAH 34 Reclaim/Overlay Project (SAP 086-634-007), Contract, #11-08. Fingalson said the bid process included one addendum dealing with the timing of when work can begin. The Engineer’s estimated is $850,000. Fingalson opened the bids:
Bidders; Bid Bond; Addendum; Base Bid
Knife River Corporation, Sauk Rapids MN; Yes; Yes; $936,170.33
Hardrives, Inc., Rogers MN; Yes; Yes; $935,759.34
Fingalson recommended laying the bid award over to later in today’s meeting. Norman asked for the project funding source. Fingalson stated that the funding source is State Aid. They advance encumbered an additional $850,000 from State Aid money. At the Board Meeting of 6-21-11, the minutes reflect an estimated project amount of $650,000. The amount they requested for advance State Aid was $825,000. He said it is disappointing that the bids are yet that much higher. Sawatzke said that the original package of bids for the overlay projects were about what was budgeted. There were State Aid and local dollars involved (there was more in one fund than another). Sawatzke asked how much was deducted from the Knife River Contract when this three-mile section was shifted out of the project. Fingalson responded that it was about $825,000. Fingalson explained the savings realized was on the State Aid portion. The local portion of the project was the part that came in higher. The bid received today was changed to include a warm mix, which is a less expensive product. They felt the project would come in around $850,000. He attributed the increase in bids to the increase in oil prices. The County could review the State Aid funds and the other State Aid projects. The Highway Department would be able to carry this project through State Aid funding, utilizing funding they have saved on other projects. Russek asked whether there are other projects that will be completed in that area in the Five-Year Plan. Fingalson said not for two years and the three-mile portion of CSAH 34 is in tough shape. The County would have to do quite a bit of maintenance to hold it together for that period of time. The roadway is about 19 years old. It was the consensus to lay discussion on this item over to later in today’s meeting.
Greg Kryzer, Assistant County Attorney, presented the minutes for the 7-15-11 Wright County Inspection of River Levee in Otsego. At today’s County Board Meeting, Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes and recommendations. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 4-0:
The Inspection of the Levee started at 11:00 a.m. at the North end of the River Levee in Otsego by the Highway 42 River Bridge. Upon arriving on site the County Board Members and Staff asked about the possible removal of the trees on the north end of the levee. Rick Hauck indicated that the Army Corps of Engineers requires all trees to be removed from river and landward side of the levee. The Corps also requires that the levee easement line or 15 feet from the toe of the levee, which ever is closer, be cleared of trees. The rules require that the root ball of the tree be removed and any holes be back filled with dirt. Mr. Hauck stated that failure to follow this rule will result in the levee being decertified. If the levee is decertified the Army Corps of Engineers will not provide emergency flood protection or federal funds to assist in disaster mitigation efforts.
Mr. Hauck provided some background on the levee and stated that the levee was installed for the purpose of preventing the river from making a channel through this area of land. This levee was built for a 500 year flood event. There is an emergency non-federal levee to the east of Highway 42 which provides some protection but the Corps of Engineers is not sure how much protection is provided because it is not in their levee safety program and it is not inspected. The emergency levee could be entered into the federal levee safety program but it would require a local sponsor and a significant investment in improvements. The entire levee system only provides a 30 year level of flood protection because of the possibility of being back flooded from the downstream side of the river. After viewing the levee from the County Highway the group meet with Mr. Mark Pletsch. Mr. Pletsch is the owner of parcels 25 and 26 of the Wright County Right of Way Plat No. 52 Otsego Levee. Mr. Mark Pletsch walked with the group as they inspected parcels 25 and 26. Mr. Pletsch asked a number of questions regarding the removal of trees and the possible removal of an old barn in his back yard. Rick Hauck answered these questions and affirmed with Mr. Pletsch the requirements for the removal of trees. The north side of parcel 26 contains anywhere from 50-100 trees that would have to be removed. The Commissioners and Staff noted that this is a large project and will require an extensive amount of work to complete. While inspecting this area Commissioner Sawatzke asked about riprap on this section of the levee. It was noted the riprap ended at parcel 25 and did not fully extend to the bridge. Mr. Hauck stated that the project sponsor, Wright County, may have to add riprap. That determination would have to be made by a hydraulics engineer from the Army Corps of Engineers. The County does not have an easement for these parcels of land and will not able to complete any work until an easement is obtained. The group then walked along the levee and inspected the parcel’s owned by the Box Factory. Mr. Hauck stated that the main concern with this area is access and stability. The box factory has a drying rack on top of the levee. This drying rack prevents access to the top and landward side of the levee. This access problem is exacerbated by the fact that the wood shop encroaches to the toe of the levee and also prevents access from the landward side of the levee. Large trucks and equipment could not reach this area during a flood event. There also appears to have been a structural change to the levee with the construction of a retaining wall. The retaining wall was not likely designed as a flood control structure and is susceptible to failure during a flood event. This area, along with the drying rack would need to be studied by a geotechnical engineer to determine its stability. This study would require that the soils be evaluated to ensure that they will hold and not collapse during a flood event. Steve Gale indicated that the proposal he submitted should be sufficient for completing this study. The group then inspected parcel 15 which is currently owned by Mr. Roger Dickerson. Mr. Dickerson is interested in donating his parcel of property to the County. After reviewing the property there was consensus that the parcel did not fit within the County’s long term plans for land ownership and that this parcel should be referred to the City of Otsego to see if they would be interested in acquiring this property. The group then meet with Daniel and Eileen Johnston, Parcel 9, and answered their questions regarding the removal of trees. Steve Jobe indicated the easement line appeared to be about 18 feet out from the toe of the levee. Rick Hauck indicated all of the trees located within the easement zone would have to be removed. Mr. Hauck stated there is no variance from this rule. The national office for the Army Corps of Engineers has not given them authority to grant variances from this rule. Mr. Hauck stated the tree removal rule has been in place since the 1970s. The Army of Corps of Engineers only recently started to enforce this rule as a result of the Hurricane Katrina Disaster. During the Katrina Disaster the Army Corps of Engineers observed that trees can become uprooted and compromise the structural integrity of the levee and lead to failure. The group also inspected parcel 10. There is a garage on Parcel 10 that appears to be built into the side of the levee. This garage was noted on the periodic levee inspection because it appeared to be within the levee easement area. Upon reviewing the survey markers it appears that the garage is outside of the levee easement. Mr. Hauck stated this structure will not have to be removed because it is outside of the easement boundary. Mr. Hauck stated repeatedly throughout this meeting that this levee is really here to protect the private property owners. From his first hand experience, floods are very devastating and can cause considerable damage. Mr. Hauck stated a good way to see how high the water can reach on a structure is to stand on top of the levee and look across at the structure. The levee is built for a 500 year flood event, as such, if there was a 500 year flood and there was a failure of the levee the water would be as high as the levee crown. The structures behind the levee would also be flooded up that point. In walking the levee Mr. Hauck noticed that a number of the homes would have their entire first story, and possibly part of the second story, inundated with water in the event of a failure during a 500 year flood. Commissioner Sawatzke asked what would happen if the trees were not removed. Rick Hauck indicated that the levee would be removed from the Federal Levee Safety Program and that the Corps of Engineers would no longer provide federal assistance. Sawatzke asked if the levee could ever be brought back into the levee safety program after being removed. Hauck stated that the levee can be brought back into the levee safety program but that the levee will have to be inspected and found to be fully compliant prior to the levee being accepted by the Corps. If there was a failure of the levee while it was outside the Federal Levee Safety Program and the County wanted to re-enter the federal program, the County would be required to first fix the levee and then petition to enter the Levee Safety Program. Regardless of the levee’s status in the program, in the event of a major flood event the Army Corps of Engineers would most likely evacuate this area. However, if the levee was not in the federal program the structural integrity and further build-up of the levee would not be monitored by the Corps during a flood. Kryzer stated the county has easements for four of the 26 parcels. A number of additional people have expressed interest in providing an easement but nothing formal has been received. Keeping the levee in the Federal Safety Program will require all of the property owners along the levee to provide the county with an easement. Given the scope and possible fiscal impact of correcting the deficiency there was general consensus that the County Board will not take action to correct any of the deficiencies unless the property owners what to keep the levee within the Federal Levee Safety Program. It was recommended that the County Board take the following action: The County Attorney is directed to continue trying to get easements for all of the parcels along the levee. The County Highway Department is not to take any further remedial action until all of the easements are acquired. If any property owners decide not to provide the County with an easement the levee will be decertified from the Federal Levee Safety Program. If all easements are obtained the County will undertake a process to correct the deficiencies in the levee and bring it into compliance with the Army Corps of Engineers.

A Building Committee Meeting was held on 7-27-11. At today’s County Board Meeting, Eichelberg moved to approve the minutes and recommendations. The motion was seconded by Mattson. Sawatzke questioned why the contract is only with ISD #877, Buffalo, as other school districts are involved. Eichelberg clarified the contract is with ISD #877 but other school districts will participate and operate under the Agreement. Sawatzke said the minutes reflect that ISD #877 has committed funding through January, 2012. He questioned whether this was an error in the minutes. Eichelberg said ISD #877 has the funding to cover through January, 2012. ISD #877 will look to the other Districts to fund the remainder of the term of the Agreement. The motion carried unanimously:
Discussion RE: Continuation Of Rental Agreement With ISD #877 For wRight Choice Program.
ISD #877 leased space in the former Sheriff Department, Detective area, for the wRight Choice Program from February-June, 2011. This was a Pilot Program to provide academic and behavioral support for students who display inappropriate behavior at school. The focus is on academic work, restorative measures, intervention, diversion, and reinstatement to school.
A copy of the Lease Agreement used during the Pilot Program was provided, along with information on the success of the Program (attached). A total of 84 students participated from Buffalo High School, Maple Lake High School, Monticello High School & Middle School, Rogers High School, St. Michael High School, and Annandale High School. Those involved with the Program support continuation. Buffalo School District has committed to continue full funding through January, 2012.
A couple of issues arose during the Pilot Program regarding use of space outside of what is being leased, IT requirements, and removal of items after the lease has expired. Those issues have been resolved. The contract allows for either party to opt out with a 30-day notice.
Recommendation: Authorize renewal of the Rental Agreement with ISD #877 for the wRight Choice Program. The Agreement will be for the period of September, 2011 through June, 2012. The Program will involve 10 or less students. The total lease amount will be $13,750.
(End of 7-27-11 Building Committee Minutes)
A Ways & Means Committee Meeting was held on 7-27-11. At today’s County Board Meeting, the following correction was made: Page 1, 5th paragraph, 6th line, delete the sentence “Asleson said Mattice estimated the original tile line was placed 100 years ago” (Asleson). Sawatzke moved to approve the minutes and recommendations, including the noted correction, seconded by Mattson, carried 4-0:
I. Discussion RE: Drainage Tile Issue, Collinwood Park & Adjacent Drainage System.
Mattice explained a site visit was held on 6-01-11 to Collinwood Park to address concern of a neighboring landowner, Charles Devos, regarding a drain tile issue that extends from Collinwood Regional Park through his property on Collinwood Lake (see attached minutes of that meeting). Mattice said when Terning learned of this previous site visit, he contacted him with suggestions for repair. Since that time, Mattson and Mattice met with Terning on site to review options for repair and related expenses.
The Committee reviewed a site map of the area. Mattice stated this issue involves a 15” pipe (appx.) which ties into a tile line that crosses private properties. The tile line has separated. It is draining but not functional. Terning indicated his land is being flooded from the water draining so slowly. The tile on his property has been damaged.
Terning stated that there used to be a natural ditch that flowed from Chelgren Lake to Collinwood Lake. At some point, a developer closed the ditch and installed the pipe. He estimated this happened sometime in the 1980’s. Cabins were built thereafter. His parents fought the problem for 10 years with no resolve.
Mattice said Terning operates an excavating company and has offered to donate the labor. Terning suggested installation of an additional 15”pipe (allowing the existing pipe to remain) at an estimated material cost at $4,000 plus shipping. Mattice thought the pipe length would be around 400’.
A meeting was held onsite recently with Allen to review permitting and what work could be authorized from a wetland standpoint. Mattice said if work is approved, the landowner must be contacted that has the concrete line running through their yard. A private road is involved. Because of this, Mattson said the easements are unknown. The road becomes flooded. Mattice said other property owners who may be affected are Gary Piehl, Lloyd Johnson, and the Danielson’s. The County’s involvement would be dependent on the level of involvement when the line went in. The tile belongs to whoever agreed to put it in and fund the installation. However, this information is not recorded. It may also depend on how much this is harming someone (i.e., taking acreage out of ag production). He asked whether there is any great damage occurring. Terning said there is for him. Mattice said it is not affecting the Park. Terning said the water from the Park flows to his property as well.
Sawatzke said that based on Terning’s recollection, there was a natural creek at one point. He asked whether this area could be returned to a natural creek. Mattice said there are 50’ lots involved so it would be difficult. Terning met with Morris Excavating on site and they thought the pipe could be installed along the property line.
It was suggested that staff review aerial photos to help determine when the road went in, when there was an open creek versus a private ditch, and when the cabins were built. Staff should also contact the Planning & Zoning Office to research permits. They should check with the Recorder’s Office to see whether there is any recorded documentation on the tile and whether the documents reflect an easement road. Pooler explained the area is not platted so it is measured in metes and bounds. Pooler felt the property card may be helpful as it reflects property transfers.
Recommendation: Staff should complete research as outlined. Lay the item over to the next meeting being held on 8-17-11 at 10:00 A.M.
(End of 7-27-11 Ways & Means Committee Minutes)
Eichelberg moved to authorize signatures on the Lease Agreement with ISD #877 for the wRight Choice Program. The Agreement is for lease of space in the Government Center for the months September, 2011 through June, 2012, at a cost of $13,750.00. The motion was seconded by Mattson and carried 4-0.
Laid over from earlier in today’s meeting, the CSAH 34 bids were discussed. Fingalson stated the bids were checked and there was one error in the Hardrives, Inc. bid total. The corrected base bid is $935,758.04. Fingalson said the project addendum allowed bidders to start this work as late as September, 2011. The low bid from Hardrives, Inc. requests the work to start in September as opposed to this week when Knife River wanted to start. In view of that, Fingalson suggested that the bids for this project be laid over for discussion when the Road & Bridge budget is discussed at the Budget Committee Of The Whole Meetings, starting next week. He would then re-agenda the topic at a future Board Meeting to determine how the Board wants to proceed. The next time there is a project in the CSAH 34 area is 2014 when Federal dollars will be used for the CSAH 33 project. Sawatzke moved to approve the recommendation of the Highway Engineer to lay discussion over to the Budget sessions, seconded by Eichelberg. Mattson questioned how long the bids can be laid over. Fingalson said bids are good for 30 days. The motion carried 4-0.
