Wright County Board Minutes

JUNE 16, 1998

The Wright County Board met in regular session at 9:00 A.M. with Russek, Rose, Mattson, Jude, and Sawatzke present.

Motion to approve the minutes of 6-2-98 was made by Russek, seconded by Mattson, carried unanimously.

Petitions were accepted to the Agenda as follows: Aud./Treas. Item #7, "MN Association of Drainage Inspectors Meeting" (Groshens). Jude moved to approve the Agenda as amended, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.

The Consent Agenda was reviewed. Sawatzke requested that Item A4, "Claim, CMIF, $5,000.00" and Item D1, "Refer discussion of a storage building for Sheriff's Department to the Building Committee" be removed for discussion. Groshens requested the following be added to Item B11 for Tobacco License approval, "Casey's General Stores, Inc., Cokato; Casey's General Stores, Inc., Montrose; Riverview Liquorette, Otsego; Municipal Liquor Store, South Haven; Holiday Stationstores, Inc., Delano; Ken's Service, Monticello City; Squire Inn, Inc., Montrose; Maple Lake VFW #7664." Groshens requested that Item B12 be added, "Claim, KUE, $207,397.00". Russek acknowledged Item D2 for the donation of $170.00 from Klatt True Value Electric (Buffalo) for the purchase of a defibrillator. Russek referred to Item C4, "Request to rezone from AG and part S-2 to R-2a and S-2, Helen Mattila (French Lake Twp.)". He stated that the backup material incorrectly reflected that the vote was unanimous to support the rezoning, that he voted against the motion and it carried 6-1. He also noted that Items C2, C4, and C5 should be changed to read "Approve Request to Rezone....". Sawatzke moved, seconded by Jude and the vote was unanimous to remove for discussion A4 and D1, authorize the additions to B11, authorize the addition of B12, acknowledge that Items C2, C4 and C5 are requests for approval and to approve the Consent Agenda as amended:

Sawatzke pulled Consent Agenda Item A4, "Claim, CMIF, $5,000.00" for discussion as he does not support donating Wright County taxpayer dollars to a non-profit organization in St. Cloud. Response was that other non-profit agencies such (i.e., Community Action, MN Council on Aging) receive funding from Wright County. Jude moved to approve the claim, seconded by Mattson. Sawatzke said that Wright County is the largest funding source for the Economic Development Partnership. Although the CMIF does provide some business loans in Wright County, he stated they also provide funding to a large number of other things which taxpayers may find unacceptable. In regard to comparing CMIF to other non-profit organizations, Sawatzke noted that the County has services which they are mandated to provide and these other organizations may assist with this effort. Russek concurred with Sawatzke, stating that he did not approve of donating to an organization when the County will not necessarily receive a benefit back. Rose stated that the CMIF has spent over $1 million in Wright County and that healthy communities is the goal. Sawatzke said that the CMIF does receive back loan monies plus interest, whereas the County is not guaranteed a return for the $5000 contribution. Motion carried 3-2 with Sawatzke and Russek casting the nay votes.

Consent Agenda Item D1, "Refer discussion of a storage building for Sheriff's Department to the Building Committee" was addressed. Sawatzke moved to send this issue to the next Building Committee Of The Whole meeting, seconded by Jude, carried 5-0.

Consent Agenda Item D6, "Authorize Board Chair Signature on Application for COPS More 98 Grant" was removed for discussion. Rose stated that she signed the grant application last week as it had to be submitted by 6-12-98. Mattson said he felt this should have been presented as a regular agenda item. He referenced Planning & Zoning's scheduled Agenda item today to request permission to submit a grant application. Sheriff Hozempa clarified that it was a grant application for communication officers, not authorization to hire staff. The grant would provide an opportunity for matching funds (25%) for 1-3 staff and would be renewable for up to three years. Hozempa cited the 11 dispatchers currently employed and stated they do not have enough staff to meet the standardized relief factor. He felt the dispatch center should have 3 employees working 7 days/week, 24 hours/day, which would total 15 dispatchers. Jude felt the dispatch center was the most important public communication in the County. Sawatzke concurred, but noted that many departments cannot apply for grants without presenting them for Board approval. Hozempa said he made an error in not submitting the application earlier. He said last year Deputy Sheriff staff worked 5000 hours in Dispatch to cover for illness, maternity and resignations. The Dispatch area does not have a relief factor for such occurrences and Hozempa will request the additional three positions at budget time. Jude moved to approve Board Chair signature on the grant application, seconded by Sawatzke, carried unanimously.

Darla Groshens, Auditor/Treasurer, presented the April Revenue-Expenditure Guidelines for approval. Mattson moved to acknowledge receipt, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0. Groshens distributed the May Revenue/Expenditure Guidelines, which will reflect the Budget 820 transfers.At the request of Groshens, Jude moved to close the April 1997 Tax Forfeit Sale, acknowledging one parcel which did not sell. Motion carried 5-0 on a second by Russek.

Russek moved to appoint Jude and Mattson to the Tax Forfeit Appraisal Committee. Groshens and Gruber also serve on this Committee. Motion carried 5-0 on a second by Jude.

Mattson moved to approve the claim from Goodhue County for $1,880.00 which is Wright County's share of the MN Utility Contract (lobbyist costs associated with personal property tax issue), seconded by Jude, carried 5-0.

On a motion by Russek, second by Mattson, all voted to authorize attendance at the Drainage Inspection Meeting being held on 7-16-98 at the Kandi Entertainment Center from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The claims listing was reviewed. Mattson referenced page 11, City of Buffalo ($18,236.55) and questioned whether there had been an increase in utility rates. Rose responded that sewer/water charges have increased but not electricity. The bill covers the West Parking Lot Street Light, the Human Services Center, and the Government Center. Groshens made a correction to page 19, School District No. 876 ($100.00). She stated that the fee was for a day camp obstacle course. On a motion by Sawatzke, second by Russek, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit.

Dennis Moeller, U of M Extension Services, requested support for a Community Resources Educator for Cluster 20 (Wright, Benton, Sherburne and Stearns County). Cluster 20 submitted a proposal to receive special University funding for the position to meet issues relating to the fast population growth and the resulting impacts on farming, animal agriculture, natural resources and the interaction of rural and urban growth issues. Kay Bakeberg, Extension Committee Chair, was present for discussion. Further explanation was given that the Educator could act as a moderator or facilitator to assist with helping people to work together. If the position were approved, the U of M would support the salary and fringe benefits. The Educator would be a U of M employee. Moeller stated that Cluster 20 would be responsible for support and secretarial services and mileage. Wright County's projected costs are $1,842.50 (1998) and $5,870.00 (1999). Moeller said the 1998 costs may be reduced due to the 6-week hire process of the U of M. Sherburne and Benton Counties have given their support for the position, and the Stearns County Board will vote on the request as part of their agenda. Approval of the position is contingent on four county approval. Jude stated he was not against the position but would vote against it due to the financial implications and levy limits. As the 1999 budget process will soon commence, he did not feel there would be adequate time to address whether the position should be approved for 1999. Norman commented that as a result of the last legislative session, the other three cluster counties received a grant for multi-jurisdictional planning and did not want to see duplication of efforts. Moeller explained that the efforts of the Educator will be guided by the collaborative. Mattson moved to approve support of the Community Resources Educator, seconded by Russek. It was clarified that the motion includes the request for both years. Sawatzke moved to amend the motion for approval of the position through 12-31-99 and directed Moeller to provide a report back to the Board prior to that time on the activities of the Educator so the Board can evaluate the benefits to Wright County citizens, seconded by Jude. The amended motion carried 4-1 with Rose casting the nay vote. The original motion with the amendment included carried 3-2 with Jude and Rose casting the nay votes.

Bill Stephens, Planning & Zoning, presented for approval a draft 1999 BWSR Local Water Resources Protection Challenge Grant Application. The amount of the grant is $30,000 and would be awarded in October, 1998. The funds (matching) would be received in January, 1999. When questioned about matching funds, Stephens referenced page 2 of the document, Item 5, "The local share to match this grant will come from three sources. In-kind staff time from both county employees and WMTF members and a grant (application submitted) received from the Wright-Hennepin Operation Round-Up Trust comprise the first two. The third would be a 1:1 match of cash and in-kind time from the applicants of the proposed projects." Stephens said $25,000 of the local match would come from Wright Hennepin and local applicants and $5000 would come from Wright County. Jude was not sure it was appropriate to pledge taxpayer funds against the budget when the levy limits have not been established. Stephens responded that staff time would already be covered within the existing levy. Sawatzke moved to adopt Resolution 98-31 authorizing signature of the Board Chair on the grant application and for the application to be submitted, seconded by Russek, roll call vote carried 4-1 with Jude casting the nay vote.

Stephens presented a draft resolution which would increase the State funding for Comprehensive Local Water Planning. If approved, Wright County would request the State to increase the base amount of dollars going to the CLWP through the NRBG program from $37,500 to $50,000 and include a 3 percent cost of living increase each year thereafter. Russek moved to adopt Resolution #98-32, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

Tom Salkowski, Planning & Zoning Administrator, referenced a new gravel pit in Southside Township. The proposed gravel mining operation is owned by Annandale Rock Products, Inc. The EAW was mandatory due to the size of the operation and was performed on all four phases. Staff recommendation and State agency recommendation is that an EIS is not required in this case. The primary findings came from the MN Dept. of Health regarding potential effects on ground water quality. Salkowski indicated that those recommendations were incorporated into the CUP contingent upon negative declaration by the Board on the requirement for an EIS. In reference to public comment received in opposition to the operation, Jude stated that if the rules are followed and CUP requirements are met, the Board cannot stop the operation. Russek moved that based on the original EAW, comments received from agencies and individuals, the responses to comments, and the criteria used in deciding whether the project has the potential for significant environmental effects, the County finds that the Annandale Rock Products Gravel Mining Operation does not have the potential for significant environmental effects and does not require the preparation of an EIS. Motion carried 5-0 on a second by Mattson.

Wayne Fingalson, Highway Engineer, requested approval of a purchase agreement with the City of Cokato for the site of the new maintenance truck station. The purchase agreement has been approved by the Cokato City Council. Don Levens and Merlin Martinson attended the meeting representing the City of Cokato. Brian Asleson, Assistant County Attorney, worked with the Cokato City Attorney to finalize the purchase agreement. He outlined two changes which were made to the version the Board had reviewed several weeks ago. The first would require the County to pay the City $500 in earnest money with the remainder of $89,419.64 payable at closing. Asleson said the original purchase agreement called for the City to provide an abstract but this paragraph was removed. Asleson was not concerned with title problems after researching the property. The City owns the property on the North, East and South side and the Township owns the property to the West. The County is responsible for designing a suitable access from CSAH 4 to the site. The County has provided the survey work and will draft the deeds. Recording fees are not charged to the County. Minimal cost will be incurred for deed taxes. A warranty deed will be obtained from the City (not an abstract of title) and will be kept by the County Auditor. Jude moved to approve the purchase from the City of Cokato, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0.

Bids for the sale of the County Garage property in Cokato were opened on 4-21-98. The County Board awaited action on awarding the bid until the new site of the maintenance building had been determined. Russek moved to award the bid to Greg Holt at $125,000.00, seconded by Mattson. Asleson indicated he will request approval of the deed at a future date. Motion carried 5-0.

Russek moved to adopt Resolution #98-33 authorizing final payment ($41,230.00) to ASTECH Corp. for Contract No. 9804 (cracksealing work completed on Hwy. 34), seconded by Sawatzke, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

A draft resolution requesting the Commissioner of Transportation to designate two segments of Wright County State Aid Highways as 10 Ton Routes (80,000 lb. capacity) was presented for approval. These roadways include 1) CSAH 6 from the South County Line to TH 12 in Howard Lake (6.19 miles) and 2) CSAH 37 from CSAH 12 to TH 25 (2.96 miles). Fingalson said there is misconception that the County Highway System is a 10 ton route system. This designation can only be established by passing a resolution and obtaining authorization through the State. Recently, the State has been enforcing weight restrictions on CSAH 6. Fingalson said this segment is proposed as a detour route by Mn/DOT and will be able to handle 10 ton traffic. The CSAH 37 segment was approved at an earlier date but not by resolution, so that segment will be included within the resolution adopted today. Mattson moved to adopt Resolution #98-34, seconded by Jude, carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

An agreement and draft resolution was presented for approval for a traffic control signal at the junction of CSAH 5 and TH 55. The agreement would be between Mn/DOT, Wright County and the City of Annandale. Total cost of the project is $65,000.00 with the County's portion being $3,750.00. Jude moved to adopt Resolution #98-35, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0.

Architectural quotes for the Cokato Maintenance Shop were opened by the County Coordinator and Highway Engineer on 6-15-98 at 4:00 p.m.: Not-to-exceed fees


Buetow & Associates, $34,000 + expenses, $19,000 + expenses

Oertel Architects, $26,500 + 950 expenses, $6,500 + 700 expenses

OSM & Associates, $45,000 + 5,000 expenses, $23,000 + 5,000 expenses

RCM Associates, Inc., $32,300 + 2,000 expenses, $29,300 + 2,000 expenses

TKDA & Associates, $23,900, $8,500

The Traditional Option would involve hiring an Architect to perform the complete design. The Design/Build Option would involve the Architect putting together performance specifications and a schematic design. The County would decide on the type of building and advertise for bids. Based on the architectural quotes received, Fingalson thought any of the firms could handle the work and the decision would be based upon compensation and timeline. He did not feel that 11-15-98 was a realistic timeline to occupy the building, instead anticipating between December and February. He requested that he be allowed to research options and present his recommendation at the next meeting. Discussion followed on building design and material. Fingalson said as a result of information obtained through the RFP's, he felt the Board should also consider a precast concrete building due to durability (estimated at 40-50 years). Jude moved to refer this issue to the Building Committee Of The Whole and to set a meeting on 6-22-98 at 9:00 a.m. Fingalson is to obtain additional information for the meeting (bid information, budget information, costs associated with the land exchange, costs associated with construction of the Silver Maple Shop, and cost of the Sherburne County maintenance building). Motion carried 5-0 on a second by Russek.

Fingalson brought forth an agreement with the City of Cokato which would revoke the State Aid status on CSAH 53 (from TH 12 to a point .25 miles north along the alignment of Johnson Avenue for a distance of 0.25 miles) and convert it to a County road. Fingalson stated that the segment would require crack sealing or overlay. It has been 13 years since an overlay was completed and would cost approximately $10,000. He thought this segment could be included in the overlay agreement as a supplemental agreement. Mattson moved to approve the agreement, seconded by Russek, carried unanimously.

A Building Committee Of The Whole meeting was held on 6-2-98. A summary of the minutes follows.

DeMars and Schillewaert obtained clarification on proceeding with the Human Services Center equipment/furniture listing reviewed at the last committee meeting.

Project Update. A construction meeting and a meeting with KUE was held on 6-2-98.

Summarize Changes Authorized To Date, Scott Builders. The Committee reviewed the Human Services/Public Works Changes/Additions listing dated 6-1-98. Items 1-16 were previously approved and Items 17-28 were acted upon today. Discussion involved expediting the change order process. Vinyl and lights are being installed at the Human Services Center. Ceramic tile and carpeting is expected within the next week.

Report On Public Works Garage Doors. Consensus was to approve the request to enlarge five doors from 12' to 14' and to take care of safety issues funded from Capital Improvement with a not to exceed figure of $25,000. The County Attorney's Office should review whether a bid process is required. If so, this should be presented to the County Board in two weeks.

Building Maintenance Staffing. At the last meeting, a request was presented to add two custodians to meet the requirements of the additional 40,000 square feet of facility inventory. Consensus was to immediately hire one custodian for the Human Services Center (funded from Budget 820, Personal Services) and the second custodian will be placed in the 1999 Budget. The second custodian may be hired before 1999 depending on when Public Works staff occupies their new building.

Policy RE: Use of Building on Weekends. A request was received to use the building on weekends to conduct the Parenting Through Divorce Program. Currently, policy does not provide for weekend meetings due to custodial staff overtime and security issues. More information will be obtained on the program before a decision is made.

At today's meeting, Sawatzke said the Building Committee Of The Whole minutes should be corrected to reflect that he was in attendance for a portion of the meeting. Russek moved to approve the minutes with that correction, seconded by Jude, carried 5-0.

A Deferred Compensation Committee Meeting was held on 6-10-98:

American Express Withdrawal From 457 Plan. Zumbusch and Weber presented a letter notifying us that American Express will be exiting 457 Tax Deferred Government Plans effective January 1, 1999. They stated that there will be no surrender charges for individuals transferring to another approved Plan. American Express has reached an agreement with the Public Employees Benefits Corporation (PEBSCO) to offer individuals the option of moving their assets to this Plan. Beihl stated that PEBSCO has no administration fee. They have an asset fee of .95% on variable accounts only.

The Committee informed those in attendance that the County has a policy that a minimum of 20 new accounts need to be opened in order to offer a new plan. Also, PEBSCO needs to submit their plan to the County for review and approval before individuals could transfer assets to their plan. Nelson stated that under PEBSCO they are plan administrators. Thus, our Plan might have to be amended. In response to a question, Zumbusch stated that individuals are not restricted to transferring assets just to PEBSCO. They can transfer to any County approved plan. Also, the names of those currently enrolled in American Express will not be given to PEBSCO.


1. An Employee Benefit Fair will be scheduled after Labor Day to allow vendors to present their plan to employees.

2. Establish a November 1, 1998 deadline for employees to choose a plan.

3. Current plan offerings are grandfathered.

4. A minimum of 20 participants will be required in order to offer a new plan.

5. New plans are to be submitted to the Auditor/Treasurer. They will be reviewed by Groshens, Nelson and Norman. They will make a recommendation to the Board. Mattson moved to approve the minutes, seconded by Russek, carried 5-0.

A Ways & Means Committee meeting was held on 6-10-98:

Labor/Management Health Insurance Committee. Recommendation: Keep the current membership of the Committee. Invite one representative from each department currently not represented so that they can participate in discussions and communicate back to employees in their department. These individuals will not be voting members on the Committee.Russek moved to approve the minutes and recommendations, seconded by Mattson, carried 5-0.

Notice was received from AMC that they are seeking 1998-99 NACO Steering Committee Nominations, with an application deadline of 6-25-98. This was provided as an informational item.

On a motion by Jude, second by Sawatzke, all voted to authorize attendance at the following meetings: 1) Employment Trilogy Part 1 1998, 7-9-98 (Mankato) or 7-30-98 (Bemidji); 2) Anoka Sand Plain, 6-25-98 (Becker). Sawatzke moved to authorize attendance of Board members at the Collar Counties meeting on 7-13-98 in St. Paul. Norman was directed to make sure one of the Commissioners attends and to notify Salkowski of the meeting. Motion carried 5-0 on a second by Jude.

Two weeks ago, the Board received a request from the City of Otsego to address the overflow parking problem at Otsego County Park. A site visit was held on 6-6-98 and was attended by Sawatzke, Borell and Fedor (Parks), Hawkins (Highway) Mike Robertson (Otsego). The current lot has 40 parking spaces. Those present at the site visit felt that increasing the lot 25% (10 spaces) in the center island would be the most practical solution at this time. Parks will handle the majority of the work, with assistance and equipment from the Highway Department. Robertson felt Otsego Public Works may provide minimal assistance with hauling/stockpiling or short-term storage of County equipment. Estimated cost is $2,100 to be funded by the site improvement line item. Expansion on the east side of the lot could occur as the need arises. Consensus of the County Board today was to proceed as recommended.
