With the approval of the budget adjustments, monthly reports will reflect the actual activity. These funds have already been awarded and disbursed.
Wetter moved to approve Item A1 under the Consent Agenda. The motion was seconded by Husom and carried 5-0.
TIMED AGENDA ITEMS
ADMINISTRATION, LEE KELLY
Introduction of Assistant County Administrator Holly Wilson
County Administrator Lee Kelly introduced the new Assistant County Administrator Holly Wilson. Wilson comes from Mille Lacs County where she served as the Assistant County Administrator.
Wilson held several positions while working at Mille Lacs County. She served as the Personnel Director, Public Works Director, County Engineer and most recently the Assistant County Administrator. Prior to Mille Lacs County, Wilson worked for Public Works in the City of Willmar and was the City Administrator for Pine City.
ADMINISTRATION – FINANCE, RYAN KOTILA
Approve Resolution Accepting Performance Measurement Grant Application
Kotila said last year the board approved a resolution accepting a Performance Measurement Grant and asked the board to approve the same resolution for 2021. With the grant approval the county will receive approximately 14 cents per capita. Last year, the county received about $19,394 for this grant.
The first year the Performance Measurement Grant was accepted, the county adopted the measures. With the approval of the measures, it was then submitted to the Office of State Auditors (OSA). The funds will be received in December 2021. This grant does not require local matching funds.
Vetsch moved to accept the Performance Measurement Grant Application. The motion was seconded by Husom and carried 5-0 on a roll call vote.

ITEMS FOR CONSIDERATION
COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING MINUTES 6-15-21
Husom moved to accept the Committee of the Whole meeting minutes and recommendations from 6-15-21. The motion was seconded by Vetsch and carried 5-0.
I. County Assessing and Local Appraisers
IT Director Matthew Fomby provided the guidance and standards IT recommends for using a government workstation:
• Device should be placed in a public know location – ex. St. Michael, MN Government Center
• Device should be place behind two physical barriers (ex. IT server room or the mail room)
• Restricted access to the specific location
• Cameras are not required to be in the same room as the device; but a minimum of 2 cameras from two different perspective should be face the room in which the device is located
• Devices should be chained lock to the specific location
• The specific location should meet “normal” temperature to avoid overheating and vice versa
• All ports on the computer will be disabled other than the mouse and keyboard ports
• Only access Wright County network via VPN
• User must have Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)
• Workstation should a static internet protocol (IP) – for monitoring and auditing
• Workstation IP should be hidden
• Workstation installed with end-point protection and web filtering
• User Permission: Only read or hidden all non-personal file; read and write personal files, etc.
• User should not have permission to download and execute application
• User should shut down device after using device
County Administrator Lee Kelly stated the group should discuss IT security considerations, the current process, the future process, and any financial impacts. Commissioner Kaczmarek questioned municipalities and townships’ ability to choose between local assessors and county assessors each year. Assistant County Attorney Brian Asleson stated the power lies with the County Board. The County Board, by resolution, can decide that all assessments will be completed by the county assessor. If pursued, the language would not take effect immediately but rather the second assessment that takes place after adoption of a resolution. There are exceptions in the statute for larger cities. Municipalities with a population over 30,000 can have their own assessors regardless.
Commissioner Daleiden stated the County is currently providing the computers for contract workers to utilize. Fomby said Wright County computers operate on the Wright County VPN system, Microsoft Windows licenses are provided, and anti-virus protection.
Daleiden stated some of the independent appraisers work in their homes and may not be able to meet all of the IT requirements. Fomby said the County needs to ensure that the information is protected, that the person accessing the information is the person you’re saying is accessing the information, and physical security is maintained. Any government building will meet the physical security requirements. Commissioner Vetsch questioned the need for a minimum of two cameras from different perspectives facing the room in which the device is located. He stated we have allowed Wright County employees to work remote without having two cameras. Fomby stated County employees are covered under a policy and their access can be terminated immediately if they are working in a location they should not be. IT has the ability to only allow access to the network from a specified location. The standards IT is expecting are federal standards used across all organizations.
St. Michael City Administrator Steve Bot stated the city has no issue with physical security within a government building. He only asked that Wright County employees are asked to follow the same standards as his employees.
Daleiden questioned if there is a way to have the VPN open during a limited timeframe, making it more secure. Fomby stated the County does not have the manpower to continually monitor the network, like large organizations do. It may be possible to turn the VPN on and off; it is something he would investigate.
Tou Pha stated the biggest challenge lies with the Internet Service Provider (ISP). ISP’s have a limited number of IP addresses available, therefore several individuals are assigned the same IP address. Fomby will be investigating if IT can limit one person’s access without a large expense. Static IP addresses cost additional money.
Tom Praska detailed security already in place by listing the steps he must take to gain access to his computer. He must use his cell phone to verify he is the one accessing information. He stated he must connect to internet at his house and cannot gain access at a public location. Additionally, Praska has four separate passwords to access the information he needs. He questioned if Assessors are the only group losing current access. He stated he works many nights and weekends and expressed concerns with not having the ability to enter data from his home. He also stated he has not been given access to County email and he must use his personal email; Adding he would pay the yearly amount for County email access himself. Praska also stated he cannot print anything from his computer.
Private Assessor Cheryl Foster stated she does not want County email on her computer for security reasons.
Ken Yager stated he is close to retirement and has been asked what the County’s view is toward local assessors. The advantage of being a local assessor is that you can do things on your own time.
Wright County Assessor Tony Rasmuson said his department handles all the mailings and notifications internally. The entire county consists of approximately 70,000 properties and Wright County assess approximately 19,000 of them. Rasmuson stated he thinks we need to find a solution so local assessors are not burdened by the proposed standards. He suggested implementing it over time.
Commissioner Kaczmarek stated the County pays for the license requirements for employees and the private assessors are responsible for paying for licenses on their own. He requested an approximate cost if the County were to handle all assessments. Vetsch stated the County would need to hire five additional assessors and would see an increase of approximately $200,000 per year. Kelly stated there are many scenarios, such as phasing it in over several years.
Rasmuson said a five-year plan could be developed or the County could acquire districts over time as individuals retire. Districts would have to pay additional per parcel to attract an assessor. Vetsch stated it becomes more difficult for private assessors to be profitable.
Corinna Township Supervisor Chuck Carlson stated he is hopeful all sides can work together to make something work.
Daleiden questioned if the township association has insurance that will cover cyber security. Carlson stated he did not know but would find out.
Vetsch asked what cities and townships plan is long-term; are they going to keep local assessors, or will they rely on the County? Carlson stated the kind of experience needed cannot be learned in six months. Kaczmarek stated he spoke to Fomby, Rasmuson, four independent assessors, cities and townships, and citizens. Overall, those that have had county assessors for a long time have been satisfied. Those with independent assessors are very satisfied and would like to keep them, if possible. The price range from independent assessors is $11-$14 per parcel. The security concerns raised were internal to Wright County. The response from the public was “big government wanting to get bigger”.
Vetsch stated there is more demand for independent assessors while only a limited number of assessors are available. Daleiden stated of the 15 largest counties in the state, six of them have local assessors. Some of the local assessment is done by municipalities.
Kaczmarek stated the new Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal (CAMA) system will be installed soon. All assessors will need training and he feels a portion of the expense should be passed on to the municipalities.
Daleiden stated the county wants to make things work for the independents but also want to make sure the County is protected.
Fomby stated he is working on a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the City of St. Michael. Once signed, IT would physically check the location and complete the checklist. He recommended each city or township work with the County individually to develop a MOA. Daleiden suggested passing some of the costs on.
RECOMMENDATION: Develop and have Memorandum of Agreements in place with all parties by September 30, 2021.
COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING MINUTES 6-16-21
Vetsch wanted to clarify that a consultant would only be used in the capacity of a grant researcher. Kaczmarek confirmed that if a consultant is hired, the American Rescue Plan will cover the cost. Kelly said a public health survey also needs to be added to the recommendation.
Wetter moved to accept the County Board Workshop Meeting minutes and recommendations from 6-16-21. The motion was seconded by Vetsch and carried 5-0.
I. Continuation of American Rescue Plan Discussion
Project Administrator Elizabeth Karels gave the board a 38-page document. The first few pages provided an overview from the previous Committee of the Whole meeting last Tuesday, June 8, 2021, which Karels went over with the board.
County guidelines were added in the document, which included the temporary nature of ARP-SLFRF funds, hiring employees, supplanting, and supplementing existing programs, 2020 revenue loss, and subrecipient relationships. The document also included a proposed process to follow for the American Rescue Plan.
The rest of the document includes program suggestions that have been brought to the committee. The highlighted proposed programs are the ones that could possibly be included in “phase one”. Phase one is the first group of projects that could move forward.
Vetsch said the “internal county expenses” proposed programs are clean and clear. The external proposed programs have conceptual pieces, but the actual grant application would need to be seen for the board to review the project activities and outcomes before a claim is submitted. He said there should be one more step in the process or approving uses of funds. He suggested that any external proposal needs to have a detailed proposal for the funds, not just a general idea.
Karels clarified that a step will be added between number six and seven, which will bring the grant agreement back to the Board for review and approval. An annual review check will be built-in, which will need to show the program is working the way the agreement states.
The grant agreements will be written for a one-year period. Programs will have to provide the data after one year, and if the data doesn’t show that the program is performing, the grants could be denied for the next year.
Karels suggested hiring a consultant to help navigate other funding available under the American Rescue Plan. That way if there are questions on a program proposal, the consultant could look it over and tell us where it would fit or where else it could be funded from. This would help ensure that the county wouldn’t miss out on the possibility of other grant funds.
Vetsch clarified that step ten will be added, to the process for approving uses of funds, regarding renewals.
Karels reminded the board that the ARP-SLFRF funds cannot be used for programs that have already been budgeted for. The funds cannot be used to supplement existing programs unless there is detailed data showing how the pandemic has expanded the use of the program.
Assistant Finance Director Heather Lemieux said it could be helpful to get some community input to help prioritize the programs to help find out the want and the need.
The committee discussed adding board members to the staff American Rescue Plan (ARP) Committee. After much discussion it was decided if the committee received a questionable grant application the process would be to contact one of the Commissioners for guidance as needed, rather than adding them to the review committee.
The committee reviewed the different programs that could be added to phase one.
Karels and Goodrum Schwartz will provide more detailed descriptions of external and internal – HHS programs that will be included in phase one to the board on July 6, 2021.
RECOMMENDATION:
Karels will add a step between six and seven to bring the grant applications back to the Board for review and approval. Step 10 will be added to the process of approving uses of funds, regarding renewals. Karels will also look for a consultant to help navigate other funding available. Goodrum Schwartz will create a public health survey which will help the committee figure out where the needs are in the community.
Move forward with phase one external projects:
• Technology Support and Training for Seniors through Senior Community Services,
• Economic Assistance for Wright County 4H through Wright County 4H,
• Volunteer Recruitment for Safe Families through Wright County HHS,
• Expand Emergency Assistance through Wright County HHS.
Move forward with phase one internal items:
• Public Health Community Health Needs Assessment,
• Pandemic Unknowns, PPE and other Supplies,
• Payroll for Public Health Employees,
• Administration Time through Wright County.
Schedule Committee of the Whole for 1:00 p.m. July 6, 2021.
WRIGHT COUNTY HISTORICAL SOCIETY
Wetter informed the board that Welker School, which is located on the Wright County Fairgrounds, is in need of a new roof.
Facilities Director Alan Wilczek said the Wright County Historical Society in Buffalo is structurally maintained by the county. Kelly said the county does own the fairgrounds site. However, traditionally if the Fair Board is making improvements that exceed $10,000 it is brought to the County Board.
Kaczmarek said he discussed the proposal and arrangements with the President of the Fair Board. The President of the Fair Board said this building is one of a few buildings in which the owner is responsible for maintenance and repairs.
Wright County Historical Society Manager Sally Stevens said the current shingles on the Welker School building are asphalt. She agreed that the county owns the land, and the Historical Society owns the building. The Welker School building is only used during the fair. She said there is gray area regarding this building and the land use, and it would be beneficial to clarify who oversees the space and where the responsibility lies.
Kaczmarek asked if the building will be used during this year’s county fair because it’s quickly approaching. Stevens said the roof won’t be fixed before then, but the building will still be used.
Husom suggested developing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU); if the Fair Board is using the building for its own purposes, the liability would essentially be on the Fair Board.
Assistant County Attorney Greg Kryzer suggested referring this item to a committee. The committee can look at the lease and agreements to have a better understanding to help move the repairs forward. Daleiden and Kelly suggested sending this item to the Ways & Means Committee in July.
Vetsch moved to send the Historical Society and the Fairground agreement and all other information to the Ways & Means Committee at the next meeting in July. The motion was seconded by Kaczmarek and carried 5-0.
WRIGHT COUNTY COMMUNITY ACTION (WCCA)
Daleiden and the WCCA toured the old jail and found equipment that could be used to help the community. He forwarded pictures of kitchen items that WCCA is interested in using along with a letter, to the other commissioners. The equipment is from the old jail and would be used for Food Rescue in Wright County. The equipment has been sitting unused in the old jail since 2009. WCCA will remove the equipment it is interested in.
Daleiden said while on the tour of the jail he saw file cabinets and chairs being stored in the kitchen and suggested it would be a good idea to start sending the items to auction or offering it to the 4-H Club and other organizations in the county.
Husom agreed that it would be better to start liquidating items rather than waiting until the last minute. However, she wants to make sure it is disbursed fairly. Daleiden said the items can be donated to WCCA and other organizations but it must be nonprofit organizations or would benefit the county. Kelly said by Minnesota Statute §375.18, General Powers of the County Board, with a subdivision directly related to Community Action Agencies and the disposition of equipment from a county to a Community Action Agency, if the dollar amount is relatively low the county can donate equipment per the statute. Daleiden said Auction Masters sells kitchen equipment and the items are selling for low prices.
Wilczek said after reviewing the items, the only refrigeration unit WCCA is interested in is a plug-in freezer, a range top oven and the rest of the equipment is mainly stainless-steel tables, shelving and racks. He said there are a few different options for disposing of items stored in the old jail, but some of the file cabinets will be used for storage in the new buildings.
Kaczmarek asked if WCCA has a location already designated for the list of items. Daleiden said they do have a location and are looking at a second location. Kaczmarek said the stainless-steel equipment was originally paid for by the taxpayers and he thinks the county should have someone without a vested interest do a walk through and establish a value for the equipment that WCCA is interested in.
Husom said this is a group that can utilize this equipment and has been making meals for seniors since COVID-19 started and it’s a value to the community. Daleiden added that it’s not just seniors but anyone who needs it, so in the end the taxpayers are benefiting from it.
Vetsch moved to donate the kitchen equipment to WCCA for its usage. The motion was seconded by Husom and carried 4-1 with Kaczmarek voting against it.
ADVISORY COMMITTEE/ADVISORY BOARD UPDATES
Association of Minnesota Counties (AMC) District 5. Kelly and Husom attended the AMC District 5 meeting on June 14, 2021. Executive Director Julie Ring emailed the Commissioners regarding the Strategic Planning efforts for the District.

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) was discussed and the other counties at the meeting are in a similar situation to Wright County as far as developing their plans.
Minnesota Counties Intergovernmental Trust (MCIT) will be sending a dividend again this year, in the amount of $12 million, split among member counties.

• Bus Route Discussion
o Board member B. Heimerl addressed the Board concern of the bus route on Hickory Street given to the district by the city to follow.
School closed a section of N. 2nd Avenue north of the school.
Permits were being held up by the city
City said they were not aware of the road needing to be closed
In order to continue construction process and get permits, the school agreed to the bus route plan given to them by the city on Hickory Street and would address it at a later time.
City said this is a compromise
We have used these same roads for 45 years
Not changing anything structurally
We cannot have Elementary kids walking through High School to get to the Elementary side.
We have always dropped off on the Elementary side
Board has safety concerns of this new route as the buses now have to travel down Hickory Street to the North, make a right turn and then a quick left turn in to the parking lot and make a U turn and travel back down Hickory Street headed South.
Board has concerns with young drivers and students walking in the parking lot.
Board member B. Heimerl approached the city to re-consider the bus route for the safety of the students.
City Administrator advised the Board to work through the city liaison
Board would like to keep the buses on traveling North on Fir street to 2nd Avenue North, head west to on 2nd Avenue North to Elm Street, and then South on Elm Street.
Board member B. Heimerl gave the Administrator Board’s plan
Letters from 4.0 and School Board insurance company given to City Administrator
City has concerns from City Attorney (open up liabilities), City Safety director (weight 18,000) and the City Engineer Bolten and Menk(width of street)
Finally, after some run around from the city Administrator, Board member B. Heimerl was allowed by the city administrator to be on the City Council Agenda to address the bus route and safety concerns of the students.
Unaware it was to be a zoom meeting. Administrator allowed Board member B. Heimerl in to city hall.
After hearing Board member B. Heimerl address the council at the meeting, City council member Ron Foust made a motion to keep the current bus route on Hickory Street from the advisement of City Attorney, Safety Director and City Engineer.
Council member Luke Meyer 2nd the motion and all were in favor except for Mayor Chris Mike.
Bus owner of 4.0 Mike Hennek experience with buses since 1985, spoke about his concerns of safety of the students and his drivers.
Agrees with the board’s plan to stay on Fir Street to keep the buses isolated.
You are just asking for problems if you turn around the buses in the parking lot.
Possibly have to back up buses to make the corner
Just doesn’t make any sense to have them turn around in the parking lot.
What if it your student that gets hurt, how much is that road really worth.
We are talking 4 buses, 175 days for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the afternoon
Visiting schools use 2nd avenue North and dropping students off
We can fix buses but cannot fix a student as easy
If you buy a house by a school you most likely will have buses driving by. Sometimes you have to state the obvious
Buses are currently using the route down Fir to 2nd avenue to Elm Street and it is working just fine.
Buses have always traveled down the narrow roads in the city of Lester Prairie
Mr. Hennek stated in the other districts he serves, the bus route has always been separated from the parking lots.
Mr. Hennek would like to keep the buses on Fir Street for the safety of students and drivers.
Dr. Radeke explained the misconception of the secure entrance.
• Secure entrance is not the only drop off. This is entrance is used for visitors during the day.
• School is locked down after start of school during the day.
• School has several drop-off areas.
Clarified there is not a daycare on Fir Street, only on Madison street
Students from Madison Street daycare are picked up and dropped off by buses.
Board has always had concerns of this turn around
Parking would be eliminated on the west side of Hickory if the buses stay on Hickory
Years ago parking there was diagonal parking on Hickory street
Board has sent emails to city to work together
School is biggest attribute of city
Board member B. Heimerl has received several calls of support
Here to talk about the safety of the students
School needs the city and city needs to the school
Dr. Radeke to reach out to the entire Council
Working with each other creates the relationship
Community member Danny Lamott said he does not want to see the buses in the parking lot and suggested that if the city wants the School Board to continue with the plan of the buses turning around in the parking lot, the Board should move all parking out to the streets. Board needs to look out for the safety of the kids.
Joe Ulhorn from H & U construction stated that from his experience the busing and traffic have been separate at schools and always a concern of the district and building plan
• Sometimes separate loops, driveways, and parking lots are made for just buses
• Community member Angie Christianson asked if a traffic study was performed by H&U – Dr. Radeke said no.
School admin performed their own traffic study showing the day to day activity in the parking lot.
City attorney stated the permit process would have to be revisited if we changed anything in our plan
• No changes to road and parking lot. No permitting issues
• No costs to city
• Pretty simple change
Community member and former city council member Larry Hoof stated if you do another presentation for the city.
• Have good clear drawings for the city
• Maybe city can change streets to one ways for safer of students and buses
• Present information to the planning and zoning commission
• Keep your attorney involved
• City Attorney was a bunch of lawyer talk with threats
• Council was aware that it was always in the plans to close 2nd avenue N.
• City council was aware of the road being closed
• Get information to the parents
• Scary for elementary kids to walk thru high school side
Joe Ulhorn – Original plans given to the city had the buses on Fir and parking for kids was on Hickory street.
• It was a trade-off that we will give you 2nd avenue and in return for you putting the buses on Hickory
• Board did not come up with the plan for the buses to be on Hickory, it was given to them by the city council.
Chariperson Hentges stated it may take some time to work through to keep the buses on Fir but would do everything they can
• Get the word out and have the conversation with the city
Board member B. Heimerl stated it is only 4 buses.
Mike Hennek has not heard a compelling argument for the city stance on the matter
• The question need to be asked why
• He has never been denied in his experience in any city he servers of going down any street
Buses do travel in town on the narrow roads already
School buses have always been exempt for driving on roads
o Molly Mike – One of the complaints and arguments that the roads were not strong enough
Bolten and Menk have not stated anything about weight, their issue is the width of the road
City ordinance states gross weight is 18,000 lbs. unless you are on a truck route.
o Otto – stated the street may be wider but having to go in the parking lot defeats that argument as the parking lot would be very narrow to loop through.
o B. Heimerl – stated he was told that Hickory was built for buses but he does not know that as he was not here at that time. It is more of an opinion than anything.
• Why is a road more important than a kid.
o Hentges stated the board will do all that it can and the #1 priority is the safety of the kids
