Wright County Board Minutes

JUNE 23, 2015
The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Husom, Sawatzke, Daleiden, Potter and Borrell present.
Potter extended a welcome to Senator Bruce D. Anderson, who was present to provide a legislative update later in the meeting.
The 6-16-15 Wright County Board Minutes were reviewed. Borrell wished to correct a statement he made as noted on Page 3, Paragraph 6, Lines 2-3 should read, “The City of Minneapolis has hired extra staff for the BCA in order to obtain a more timely response.” At the time he made that statement, Borrell said he thought it was Hennepin County. Borrell said in the same paragraph, Lines 3-4 should read: “He suggested the possibility of Wright County look into hiring a staff person at the BCA for about $89,000/yr.” Borrell said he had previously been told that the position would cost about $100,000. Husom said it costs them about $100,000, but the City of Minneapolis is paying about $89,000 for each employee. Potter said no corrections are needed to the minutes because Borrell spoke what he knew at the time, and the minutes reflect what was said at the meeting. His corrections today are simply clarifications after receipt of additional information. Daleiden moved to approve the 6-16-15 County Board Minutes as presented. The motion was seconded by Husom, and carried 5-0.
Petitions were accepted to the Agenda as follows: Consent Agenda Item C3: “Renewal of 3.2 Malt Liquor License for Albion Ridges Golf Course” (Hiivala). Borrell moved to approve the Agenda as amended, seconded by Husom, and carried 5-0.

Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, requested approval and signatures on the Findings And Order Accepting Viewers’ Reports And Adopting Redetermined Benefits (Findings). Hiivala said the County went through the redetermination process and held a public hearing in order to recreate ditch records. The law firm of Rinke Noonan drafted the Findings at the order of the County Board. The documents included in the packet provide history regarding how the County used the Viewers to appraise the benefits of the land. Also included are questions and contests by the public. Hiivala said he has reviewed the Findings and thinks they accurately reflect the redetermination process. In approving signatures on the Findings, Hiivala said the Board is acting as the County Drainage Authority and not the County Board in this instance. The County Board Resolution related to this item is on top of the Findings in the packet. He asked for a roll call vote. Next, Hiivala said he will ask the Board for the authority to sign the Findings Order to put in the County Ditch 38 records.
Sawatzke asked where the Finding lists the final outcome for the Sones property. Daleiden said Pages 3 through 5 reference them. Hiivala said the Board directed Rinke Noonan to address the Sones’ personally. They were deemed to still benefit from the County Ditch system. Hiivala said the Viewers sat down with the benefitted landowners multiple times. Daleiden moved to approve the Findings and Order Accepting Viewers’ Reports and Adopting Redetermined Benefits for County Ditch 38. Borrell seconded, and the motion carried 5-0.
Borrell moved to approve the Order and Resolution #15-32 authorizing redetermination of County Ditch 38, seconded by Daleiden. All voted aye on a roll call vote.
Hiivala said the next step is to record the benefits against these benefitted landowners, and then acquire the one–rod buffer strip on the open ditch system. He will work with Chief Deputy County Attorney Brian Asleson and attorney Kurt Deter from Rinke Noonan regarding whether to bring in an engineer. Daleiden said he hoped they will be able to discuss the issues with the Wright County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD). Perhaps there is funding available to solve some of the wetland issues. Hiivala said he will bring those action items before the Board again.
Hiivala moved to the next Agenda item requesting approval of a resolution delegating powers to the County Auditor-Treasurer related to tax-forfeited land to help expedite the process. There is a large number of tax-forfeited parcels coming up in the fall. Potter said the goal is to get these parcels off the books and back onto the tax rolls.
Asleson said the Auditor/Treasurer’s Office recently recorded certificates of forfeiture on parcels that were eligible for forfeiture in 2013, 2014, and 2015. Many of the lots are very small and unbuildable, and would be appropriate for private sale to adjacent landowners. The Resolution would allow three things:
1) Designation of the parcels as conservation or non-conservation. The Attorney’s Office sends those designations to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) for their approval. Asleson said there is one parcel in this batch that the County labeled as conservation. Platted parcels don’t qualify as conservation.
2) Setting the minimum bid price or the appraised value. Hiivala and his staff will consult with the County Assessor’s Office.
3) Making the determination whether or not the parcels are eligible for private sale.
Asleson said when they set the public sale later this year, all the public sale parcels will come before the Board for review of minimum bid prices.
Daleiden asked whether the parcels like these that are small and unbuildable could be combined under one PID with another parcel. Asleson said it depends on the parcel numbering system, whether adjacent parcels are located in a different section, city, or township. Some parcels are split. The parcels may not be combined into one parcel number, but the Board can require that two parcels be linked and forever sold together in the future. He would present such a consideration to the County Board.
Hiivala said his Office will require that such parcels be combined into one when possible. Otherwise, his Office will require that both parcels be purchased together.
Asleson said there is a Statute that says if two parcels are in different sections, for example, the County may not require that they be combined. That is the same section of Statute that allows landowners to request a combination, which a lot of landowners do. Asleson said there are certain instances with the tax system and the way parcels are numbered that the Auditor’s Office chooses not to combine parcels into one tax identification number. He said many times it makes sense, as a landowner would rather get one tax statement than three.
Sawatzke said the section number is part of the parcel identification number. He said it is not possible to combine two parcel identification numbers that are in different sections. Asleson said that was correct. Each county has different parcel identification numbering systems.
Asleson said they are not asking the Board to delegate those types of decisions to Hiivala. If such a request arose (to combine to parcels with separate identification numbers), the request would come before the County Board for a decision. The Statute says the Board can set conditions of sale, including requiring certain parcels that cannot be combined to always be sold together (effective permanently).
Daleiden moved to adopt Resolution #15-33 delegating certain powers and authority relating to the administration of tax-forfeited land to the Auditor-Treasurer. Sawatzke seconded, and the Resolution carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Hiivala turned to the May Revenue/Expenditure Budget Report. There is nothing new at this time. Hiivala said the June Report will reflect new budget line items. It will also highlight mid-year milestones and include a new Highway Department line, number 325, to be consistent with Budget process. He has asked his staff to complete this process quickly to facilitate getting budget books to Departments as soon as possible. Daleiden moved to approve the May Revenue/Expenditure Budget Report, seconded by Husom. The motion carried 5-0.
The Honorable Senator Bruce D. Anderson (R) District 29 from the Minnesota Senate provided a legislative update. Key topics he addressed included:
• An update on a deficiency bill that addressed critical needs in outstate Minnesota.
• The amount of money spent in special session reduced the $2 billion State surplus to about $850 million.
• The Governor’s proposal for 2016-2017 was $43 billion, or $3.7 billion more than the current budget.
• A push for a Minnesota gas tax of 16.5 cents, prorated up to as much as 24 or 25 cents over the next few years, did not pass.
• A transportation bill made it through, but the budget is the same as 2013-2014, with a little extra money for critical projects. This year’s bonding bill was $362 million.
• A tax bill to pare back on taxes to citizens failed.
• Funding to help the City of Delano pay $35,000 for back taxes did not succeed.
• The Senate also rejected a $35 million bill to expand Randy’s Sanitation so enable them to sort garbage, compost it, and make methane gas from it.
• A bill to allow the County the choice to retain a private auditor or a State auditor to audit the books succeeded.
Borrell asked where the 50 foot buffer strip legislation ended up. The Senator said it was a major contention in both the State House and Senate. It is already a rule, but the Senator said there isn’t enough money to enforce it. A portion of the requested money was allotted for enforcement. Some of those funds will go to the Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) and others to enforce the rule. The Senator said this rule was done many years ago. Once an agency makes a rule, if no one contests it after 60 days, it becomes law. The funding supports the law and involves the Department of Natural Resources, the Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR), and the SWCD to help with enforcement.
Senator Anderson said he intends to ask for more funding for beds for homeless people who are mentally ill during the next session to broaden a pilot program near Brainerd. They are looking for volunteers similar to a 17-county coalition with a similar purpose in Florida.
Borrell said there are many working poor who live in Wright County but drive to the Twin Cities for work. The gas tax is unfair, as it shifts the burden onto the working poor. He is not opposed to raising money for transportation. Borrell said he hopes the Senate comes up with better options next session.
The Board thanked Senator Anderson for the update.
John Peterson spoke on behalf of the Waverly American Legion regarding Woodland Cemetery in Woodland Township, south of Montrose on Highway 25. Peterson said his interest in genealogy drew him to the Cemetery that holds graves of veterans and others. Peterson said the Cemetery is not being maintained. He said Woodland Township Clerk Gloria Janikula told him the Cemetery is abandoned. Peterson said he spoke with Asleson and Attorney Greg Kryzer, who told him there is a Statute which addresses the maintenance and care of cemeteries. Peterson said he is not looking for money from the County, but simply the County Board’s permission to clean up the Cemetery with the help of the Montrose Veterans of Foreign Wars.
Potter asked the size of the Cemetery. Peterson said it is one to two acres. Approximately 25 to 30 people are buried there. Potter asked who owns it. Peterson said Janikula told him no one owns it, although it has its own property identification number, and the tax statement says Woodland Township. There is no tax assessed against it. Veteran’s organizations can delegate authority to clean up cemeteries.
Daleiden moved to allow the Waverly American Legion and other interested Veterans of Foreign Wars groups to work on the Woodland Township Cemetery. Borrell seconded the motion.
Sawatzke asked Asleson what would happen if someone else cleaned up a cemetery without asking the County Board permission. Asleson said he is not sure why the Statute is worded the way it is. It says any nonprofit organization may ask the County Board’s blessing to clean up or maintain a cemetery. The County has the option to provide funding if desired. Another Statute says the Township may take over the cemetery; however, they are not usually interested in funding them. Asleson said there are at least 20 such cemeteries in Wright County that have a parcel identification number, that have tax-exempt status so no taxes are collected, and no tax statement is issued as no known ownership exists.
Daleiden said if Woodland Cemetery is set up under Woodland Township, it is not a public cemetery. Asleson said the only reason Woodland Township is listed is because the Auditor/Treasurer doesn’t know where to send the tax statement. That doesn’t mean it is public or private.
Husom said if Peterson finds other abandoned cemeteries that the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars want to clean up, they should talk with the County Attorney and the Auditor/Treasurer’s Offices, and place the request for permission on the County Board Consent Agenda. She said Peterson would not have to come back and present to the Board. The County Board will approve it at the meeting the following week. Peterson said he would follow that procedure.
The motion carried 5-0.
Asleson spoke regarding a tax forfeit property that was on the public auction last fall but did not sell. The minimum bid price was reduced to $15,000. It is a storefront in the City of South Haven that is full of abandoned personal property. The only party interested is Serenity Path, a nonprofit drug addiction treatment center in Paynesville. The County is unable to sell the property to a particular person, except in certain instances. The City was willing to purchase it for $15,000 and resell it to Serenity Path. The City had $8,000 in special assessments from delinquent water and sewer bills. The City can recover that out of the purchase price. The Auditor/Treasurer’s Office agreed to do an offset. The City is paying the purchase price of $6,923.34. The reason Asleson did a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) is in case Serenity Path backs out of the transaction. This Agreement brings all parties together on one document that is, in effect, a purchase agreement. Asleson said once he gets the State Deed in the City’s name, he will follow up to make sure the City conveys the property to Serenity Path.
Asleson said the first request is to vote on the MOU. Daleiden moved to authorize signatures on the Memorandum Of Understanding RE: RE: PID # 115-010-007090, seconded by Husom. The motion carried 5-0.
Daleiden moved to adopt Resolution #15-34 recommending conveyance of PID #115-010-007090 to the City of South Haven. Borrell seconded, and the motion carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Lee Kelly, County Coordinator, stated that originally discussion of the Tri County Regional Forensic Laboratory was scheduled for the 6-30-15 County Board meeting. Since there is no Board meeting on that date as it is the fifth Tuesday of the month, Kelly said he placed the item on today’s Agenda. Kelly said the Board and he toured the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension laboratory yesterday. He had no action item to recommend.
Daleiden moved to table this discussion until the first meeting in September to allow time for the County Board to tour the Tri County Regional Forensic Laboratory (Tri County Lab), and to meet with other counties before making a decision. Husom seconded the motion. She stated that would allow time for all County Commissioners to meet with Anoka and Sherburne Counties at the 8-11-15 Tri County Lab Advisory Board meeting at the Law Enforcement Center (LEC). The Board’s tour of the Tri County laboratory is set for 7-01-15. Husom said Sawatzke has the most history on this issue, and has many valid points. She would like him to have an opportunity to talk with Commissioners from Anoka and Sherburne Counties regarding why Wright County seeks to change the funding formula.
Sawatzke said he hopes the other County Commissioners come to the 8-11-15 meeting. He is disappointed in the delay in discussions until that time. He said that Sherburne County Commissioner Bruce Anderson, who was involved with the Tri County Lab from the beginning, stated in a meeting during the last month that “everyone involved agreed to the funding formula right from the beginning.” Sawatzke said that is not true. Sawatzke cited County Board minutes from 7-07 that indicate he raised the issue before the Tri County Lab was even built or the County was involved. Sawatzke said he stated that the population-based funding formula was not fair, as one county may have X percent of the population and use the Tri County Lab more or less than the other counties. Sawatzke said when the Joint Powers Agreement (JPA) was drafted, it stated that the Advisory Board would come up with the funding formula. He said the funding formula was not agreed to from the start.
Sawatzke quoted from the 12-11-07 County Board Minutes that included the 11-28-07 Ways & Means Committee Minutes on the Joint Powers Agreement for the Regional Crime Laboratory, saying “the cost is divided to member counties based on the formula.”
Sawatzke also stated he had minutes from the very first Tri County Forensic Lab meeting held 5-12-08 which he attended, and stated the need to create a funding formula. Sawatzke said the others decided to wait, saying they would address the issue in a year. The minutes from that meeting reflect that decision. He said other County minutes from that time period reflect discussions that a population-based funding formula is not fair. Sawatzke said the JPA initially approved never included a population-based funding formula because the Wright County Board never agreed to it. The JPA was later changed to add a clause about a population-based funding formula.
Husom said it would be good for the others involved with the Tri County Lab to hear Sawatzke’s points.
Sawatzke said he can demonstrate that year after year Wright County raised concerns about the funding formula, and was repeatedly told to wait. The Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust (MCIT) was prophetic regarding what would happen over time. He quoted from Page 3, Paragraph 2, Line 3, of a 9-18-07 MCIT letter to former County Coordinator Richard Norman: “Although it can be argued that Wright County and Anoka County have the same interests in reducing risk and liability, the two counties may diverge in the best course of action regarding how to achieve that goal. In the end, the Wright County Board Members will be required to explain and justify the expenses to their constituents.” Sawatzke said he believes the Board is now having to explain to citizens why the County continues to pay a greater percentage than what is used in services from the Tri County Lab. He asked why the County is involved with the Tri County Lab when there is a perfectly good alternative. Sawatzke said that, however, was a different discussion.
Sawatzke referenced a dialogue he went through in 2012 that was well documented in Board minutes regarding how much Wright County pays and how much the County receives in services. The numbers have improved a little. Sawatzke said the Sherburne County Sheriff said he did not know how to budget based on usage. Sawatzke said costs are projected based on history. He did not feel that objection was valid.
Daleiden said his reason for postponing the meeting till the first meeting in September is to give the County Board a chance to learn more about the issues. He has discussed this with some of the Sherburne County Commissioners. He would prefer to talk with all of them. If they aren’t interested, that becomes a different situation. Also, a previous Wright County Commissioner agreed to this current funding formula. Anoka and Sherburne Counties indicated the topic would be discussed at the next Tri County Lab meeting.
Potter said this affords Sawatzke the opportunity to bring the rest of the Board up to date on the history of the Tri County Lab. Daleiden said Sawatzke could put together a one page summary of the dates, the meeting, and what transpired. He said having that information on a timeline will help everyone. Potter said this is an issue that needs an answer that all participating entities can accept.
Sawatzke said it is easy for the other two Counties to prefer the population-based formula because it saves them money. He questioned how long the County will find this situation acceptable. Sawatzke said yesterday the Board toured the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA), which is one of the most impressive forensic labs in the world. He said the Tri County Lab, which does good work, only handles a fraction of the types of tests done by the BCA. Husom said the Tri County Lab is accredited for 3 of the 14 disciplines.
Sawatzke said no one at the BCA was critical of the Tri County Lab work. Husom said they were very supportive. She thinks a combination of a population- and usage-based funding formula would be fair.
Sawatzke said the statistics need to be evaluated. The County could hire its own DNA, fingerprint, and drug experts for a total of $267,000 at the BCA, a facility that has the capacity to do three times the volume of the Tri County Lab. Those three people would give cases from Wright County top priority. Currently, the County is spending $375,000+ for the Tri County Lab. Sawatzke said that would be an immediate savings of $100,000. He said it was never his goal to not be part of the Tri County Lab. His goal was equity in funding. Issues are arising now, and the County has options if the Tri County Lab doesn’t work.
Husom said the 8-11-15 meeting of the Tri County Lab will be at 2 PM at the LEC. She said the accreditation of the Tri County Lab provides the potential benefit of other entities utilizing its services for a fee. That would lower the County’s costs. Husom said she is curious about the potential financial benefits they may reap. There are a lot of agencies that are frustrated at the length of time it takes to get results from the BCA. The BCA works for 400 State agencies. She said given the potential influx of new entities using the Tri County Lab, the County may eventually pay less than $375,000.
Husom said the County should send invitations to Anoka and Sherburne County Boards inviting them to the 8-11-15 meeting. Daleiden agreed to a formal invitation.
Borrell said he wants to do what is best for the County. He is prepared to withdraw from the Tri County Lab. It doesn’t make economic sense. He said the County could hire a dedicated DNA person at the BCA for a lot less money. He will vote against postponing this decision. More than 80 Minnesota counties utilize the BCA. Borrell said the County should serve the other two counties notice of withdrawal.
Daleiden said he agrees with Borrell, but the County has invested a lot of money in the Tri County Lab. He wants to gather more information related to potentially selling services to other users and bringing in more revenue. He said if the County can get the same services for $100,000 at the BCA versus $400,000 at the Tri County Lab, Daleiden said he will want to save the money.
Sawatzke asked why the Board couldn’t do as Borrell suggested and send a 180 day notice to the other two counties with a statement that the County Board desires to negotiate with them to possibly work out an agreement.
Daleiden said this is an opportunity for the County to go about this without issuing threats. Sawatzke said he does not see the notice of withdrawal as a threat or bullying. Rather, the County is being bullied because we are paying more and the other parties are taking advantage of it.
Daleiden called for a vote on the motion. The motion carried 3-2, with Sawatzke and Borrell casting nay votes.
Sawatzke said in 2008 the County paid 23 percent, while the County only used 6.7 percent of the drug testing and 4 percent of latent fingerprints. In 2009, the County used only 9.7 percent of the drug testing done at the Tri County Lab, and 5.2 percent of latent fingerprints. In 2010, the County used 5.7 percent of the drug testing and 3.9 percent of latent fingerprints. Sawatzke said these statistics are why he has consistently raised the issue since 2008. More recently the County has been using 14 to 16 percent of the testing, but paying a lot more. Sawatzke said the County is literally paying as much as five to six times more than actual use in each category of services. Potter asked Sawatzke to make that information available to all the County Board members.
Borrell requested to appoint someone from the agricultural community to the North Fork One Watershed, One Plan Policy Committee. He said the SWCD voted unanimously to approve this addition. Borrell proposed Greg Bakeberg from Victor Township who is willing to serve, and who lives in the Watershed District. Sawatzke said his credentials are impressive. Borrell said this is an appointment to a policy committee and will probably be in effect for one year. Daleiden moved to appoint Greg Bakeberg, seconded by Sawatzke. The motion carried 5-0.
Kelly suggested scheduling a closed session of the Negotiation Committee Of The Whole meeting for 7-14-15 at 10:30 AM to discuss negotiation strategies. Husom made a motion, seconded by Daleiden, and the motion carried unanimously.
