Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, presented the 3-09-15 Tax Forfeit Committee Minutes for approval. The Committee met to review properties from prior tax forfeit auctions. The goal is to return the properties to the tax rolls. Hiivala said they are working with municipalities on what the City’s intent is on outstanding special assessments. That could help with marketing the properties. Daleiden referenced PID #114-298-000020 which reduced in value from $79,900 to $100. Hiivala said the $100 is the cost assigned above the special assessments. Potter said the property is a townhome development in the central part of St. Michael. Hiivala said the properties are for public sale but the purchaser must also pay any outstanding special assessments. The original sales prices were sufficient to pay off special assessments. Potter stated that that an interested party could negotiate the special assessments with the City; however, most of the cities have bonds tied to the assessments. The County is lowering the prices and letting municipalities decide what to do. The $100 amount assigned on some of the parcels relates to covering staff costs. Daleiden moved to approve Minutes, seconded by Borrell, carried 5-0. The 3-09-15 Tax Forfeit Committee Minutes follow:

(End of 3-09-15 Tax Forfeit Committee Minutes)
As requested by Hiivala, Husom made a motion to approve a temporary 1 day to 4 day On Sale Liquor License for the Church of St. Mary of Czestochowa. The motion was seconded by Borrell and carried unanimously.
Daleiden made a motion to approve the December Budget Report, seconded by Husom. The motion carried 5-0. Hiivala will ask the Board at a future meeting to set a Budget Committee Of The Whole Meeting to review the 2014 Budget.
On a motion by Borrell, second by Daleiden, all voted to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, subject to audit, for a total of $248,010.58 with 172 vendors and 269 transactions.
Virgil Hawkins, Highway Engineer, said the City of Monticello is requesting additional funding for the TH 25 & CSAH 75 intersection project. He commended the City’s effort in taking the lead on the project. Wright County was a partner in helping the City leverage $1.2 million in Region 7W Federal Funds, which will cover the majority of the construction costs. Hawkins stated that when approached by the City initially, the County did not have any construction dollars available for upcoming years because of other needs.
Hawkins said that in the recent past, millions of State Aid Construction dollars were invested in CSAH 75, which was a collaborative project with the City and included access management, development of channelized left turn lanes for safety, new pavement, and a variance from the State Aid Variance Committee to allow parking to remain (8.5’ wide parking lane).
Hawkins said that at the time, the County did not have funds to contribute but supported the project in writing and commitment to maintenance dollars in the amount of $90,000. The monetary commitment made the project eligible for Region 7W Federal Funding. The City received a grant award totaling $1.2 million. The County’s support for the project and financial commitment of $90,000 has been on the condition that four travel lanes remain on CSAH 75.
A compromise Agreement being reviewed would allow the Project to reduce CSAH 75 to three travel lanes on a temporary basis, with assurance that four travel lanes will be restored if there are safety or operational problems. The Agreement was approved by the City Council at their 3-09-15 Meeting. Hawkins recommended approval of the Agreement and approval to provide the remaining $72,400 in County funding at the time that CSAH 75 has four lanes restored. This would be consistent with the County’s support for the Project.
Hawkins introduced Jeff O’Neill, Monticello City Administrator, and Shibani Bisson, City Engineer. O’Neill conveyed appreciation of the cooperation received from the County on the Project. The Project will open up access at a critical intersection in the community, improve the County and State road systems, and support the local redevelopment in the area. With the agreement in place, the four lanes of traffic in both directions has been established on CSAH 75. The road will remain three lane until there is concern, conflict, or when redevelopment occurs on Block 52. As a result of the study and parking demands, the City would like to go to four lanes right now. However, because of Block 52 and other businesses, it needs to remain three lanes until it is demonstrated that there is a critical issue. O’Neill said because the $90,000 in improvements are being made at this time, the City’s request is that the funds not be delayed until the four lanes are established. He extended thanks for the energy the County has provided to ensure they were eligible for this funding.
Potter referenced the Agreement and understands if there is a problem, the road will be restored to four lanes. O’Neill said that is correct. If there are traffic issues, crashes, or incidents of congestion and a true bottleneck occurring, O’Neill felt the County and City would look at the area and open it up. Traffic, congestion, and concerns with safety will trump parking needs. Statistics show that is not going to be a problem short term. He wanted everyone to know that the City stands behind its commitment to be supportive of removing the parking if needed. Potter understands this is an interim situation. At the point in time where that area is redeveloped, CSAH 75 will be restored to four lanes. O’Neill said that is correct. They will be designing the redevelopment as it occurs with that thought in mind. There could be additional on-street parking, but the road would have to widen for that to occur. They could take part of Block 52 for additional parking. Three lanes will not be proposed with redevelopment.
Daleiden questioned whether the City is looking for the $90,000 in County contribution now instead of waiting until the road is returned to four lanes. O’Neill said that is correct. Daleiden asked whether more funding will be requested from the County at that time. O’Neill deferred to Bisson for response, but did not think that would be the case. Bisson stated that when CSAH 75 goes to four lanes, it will be at the City’s cost (removal of parking, restriping, signal revisions, and median work on the median east of TH 25), which is estimated at $30,000-$60,000. Bisson said that at this time, they will complete a mill and overlay for the entire project which is estimated at $90,000. They need to do this to cut in the medians so they don’t have a joint in the pavement. It makes sense to complete an entire mill and overlay because of this.
Sawatzke referenced the letter from the City which states, “it has been agreed to, through a signed agreement, that should the County and City determine that for safety or operational concerns, the ultimate lane configuration would be implemented by removing the parking and restriping the roadway, at the City’s cost, to provide the two through lanes for westbound CSAH 75.”
Sawatzke summarized the Project. The Project is receiving about $1.7 million in State and Federal funding, which leaves a balance of $540,000. The City is willing to contribute $450,000 and is asking the County for $90,000. There are no City streets in that location; it involves a County highway and a State highway. Sawatzke said the County’s Committee Of The Whole previously met and more or less agreed to the $90,000 contribution. At that time, the Highway Engineer and City were asked to work out an agreement, and the Highway Engineer feels what has been worked out is acceptable. Sawatzke said they have done what was asked of them. There is remedial action if needed, and the City is willing to bear the responsibility. He thought the City may be completing the Project to a great degree, because of the congestion of turning lanes and the problems associated with large trucks turning. Sawatzke frequents this intersection and sees the back up of vehicles because of semis turning the corner. It is something that needs to be fixed. He said the location of the buildings close to the road is necessitating the development project. This is a large City investment and he assumed others would view this as a fair request.
Potter has also seen the traffic problems created with semis trying to turn the corner at this location. He said the City has invested a lot into the intersection relating to the flow of traffic, and he applauded the City for taking the lead on alleviating some of the traffic problems. Potter feels the Agreement provides a mechanism for the City to correct parking problems. Borrell said he is supportive of this intersection being corrected. If there is a problem, the City will need to take action and remediate the situation. He asked how long this may take the City to move to four lanes when needed. Bisson replied that the Agreement states if there is a traffic safety or operations issue or if there is redevelopment, the City will act as quickly as possible. They will contact the Highway Engineer on safety concerns to agree on a plan. Bisson said there is a plan in place and would involve restriping. Borrell asked if the road will need to be torn up and she stated it will not. Sawatzke said there is a possibility for redevelopment on Block 52. He thought that would be the time when the City could take care of any issues, possibly through widening of the road or a change in parking dynamic.
Sawatzke said he appreciates the Highway Engineer’s concern about through traffic on CSAH 75. Four lanes of traffic have been on CSAH 75 for some time, and a lot of traffic moves through the area. He expects the City’s Engineers have taken that into consideration and have modeled it in such a way that it will work. If not, Monticello’s residents that drive CSAH 75 will be impacted. Bisson said a traffic analysis has been completed. To receive Federal funding, an intersection control evaluation is required. The Highway Engineer has that document for review, and it will be reviewed by the County and the State to receive the funding.
Daleiden made a motion for Wright County to contribute $90,000 to the TH 25 & CSAH 75 Intersection Improvement Project with the understanding that in the event the intersection needs to be redone, it will be at the City’s cost and based off the County Highway Engineer’s recommendations (i.e., how fast the correction needs to be implemented, etc.). Potter sought clarity of the motion as it relates to the redo of the intersection. Daleiden stated the reference is to when on-street parking is eliminated and CSAH 75 is returned to a four lane road. Sawatzke seconded the motion. He asked if the motion applies to what the City is agreeing to in their correspondence to the County dated 3-11-15. Daleiden said that is correct. If the County Engineer says there is an issue, the City will take care of it at that point. Sawatzke asked to change the motion to cite the County Board instead of the Highway Engineer. That way, the City can approach the County Board to make their argument relative to whether or not it is working. The County Board will then make the decision. Daleiden accepted that as part of the motion. The motion carried 5-0. Bisson said the Project is anticipated to start mid-July.
Hawkins requested approval of Agreement No. 14-52 for the TH 25 and CSAH 75 intersection improvements with the City of Monticello. Husom moved to approve the Agreement, seconded by Daleiden. It was agreed that the Agreement needs to be modified to reflect the $90,000 financial contribution by the County, replacing the reference to $17,600. The motion carried 5-0.
Laid over from the last Board Meeting, discussion resumed on whether Wright County should apply for a buffer grant (FY 2015 Clean Water Funds grant opportunity). Borrell asked for explanation on how existing State law differs from the bill proposed by Governor Dayton. Joe Jacobs, SWCD, said the current State law deals with shoreland rules and the County was delegated those duties in the early 1990’s. The law deals with waters that are on the public waters inventory. There is a map that was developed by the DNR in the early 1990’s that shows protected lakes and wetlands, as well as large rivers and some of their tributaries. Jacobs said Dayton’s bill proposal includes any public waters, in addition to anything that has a defined channel or channel bottom and some of the intermittent streams that are flowing most of the time. Jacobs said many of those details have not been identified. The proposed bill will refer to a map that will be developed by the DNR by 2016 that delineates the water bodies. He said those water bodies will have a 50’ buffer. Borrell asked whether that will include county ditches. Jacobs thought it would. Sawatzke said the proposed legislation identifies perennial waters but was unsure if perennial has been defined. Kerry Saxton, SWCD, said the bill language references perennial streams. He doubted the law, if passed, would apply to county ditches; however, he said there may be some areas involving public waters and county ditches that could be included. He said those details still need to be worked out. The bill still needs to move through a number of committees.
Daleiden read from an article entitled, “Buffer Strips on Minnesota’s Waterways and Ditches,” prepared by Rinke Noonan Law Firm, John C. Kolb, Attorney, and Kale R. Van Bruggen, Attorney. According to the article, current law requires vegetative buffer strips in two instances:
1. On each side of a public drainage ditch managed under Minnesota’s public drainage code; and
2. As a condition to a permit or zoning requirement under county shoreland management rules.
Saxton said his understanding is that the only time this is required is after a ditch redetermination.
Husom asked whether the buffer grant is available to assist in completing an inventory of what is happening in the County. Saxton said that is correct. Additionally, language will include corrective measures (including how to make areas more vegetative). He envisioned that to be a 2-3 year process and hoped that all the legal questions will have been worked out during that time. It would then come back to the Board, and the Board would decide whether they wanted to take any action.
Sawatzke said when he attended the AMC’s Environment & Natural Resources Committee, he thought the laws were the same. At that time, he didn’t realize there was an old and new law and that they were different. The second component of the grant application is how to become compliant. He suggested that the application indicate the County will provide education and incentives, if available, to assist willing property owners to adhere with the law. He does advocate enforcement if that is not being done in other Minnesota counties. Jacobs said six counties have become more active with this specific law, with four of them targeting education. Those counties have completed the assessment and ground work to determine the violations, and then followed up with landowners on available programs that deal with buffer compensation. Those counties have been fairly successful in their efforts. Some counties have not done anything. Dodge County has taken the position that this is State law and County Ordinance, and it is expected to be followed.
Borrell supported making this more of a voluntary or cooperative effort. There will be situations where landowners will not work with the County. He thought the language should reflect, “As money becomes available from the State or other public funds, that we will justly compensate the landowner for the taking of their property, so as not to violate the takings clause of the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.” Borrell said that is what the County is doing by taking 50’. If the landowner fights that and the County indicates the land is needed, the landowner should be compensated. If that does not occur, the County is taking their property. He said we either live by the Constitution, amend it, or get rid of it. Saxton said that it needs to be worked out at the State level as to when land is taken.
Potter asked whether land in programs such as CRP have to abide by the buffer law. Jacobs stated that counties that have been actively working on this have indicated a several year timeline to identify areas not buffered. Landowners are informed of available programs and expiration dates. Saxton said in Dakota County, landowners were given a couple of years to correct issues prior to enforcement. He understands a group tried to oppose this. An attorney informed the group that it is State law and encouraged compliance.
Sawatzke said speakers at the AMC Legislative Conference referenced evaluation of the exemptions for the 50’ setback. He said the current law apparently has no exemptions. Sawatzke asked whether the proposed law, if passed, will eliminate current law or whether the laws will govern separate areas. Saxton said there will be an overlap if the bill passes. The definition of the perennial stream is unknown. Another key element is the State has looked at the number of counties not doing this properly. Under the proposed bill, enforcement will be turned over to the DNR. The County is tasked to do this but enforcement is turned over to the DNR, much like the WACA Law. Saxton said exemptions would allow a conservation plan to be written for a landowner.
Borrell said on flat land, some farmers have built berms so the water does not flow into the ditch. The water instead flows into a drainage tile and is filtered. With a redetermination, the setback is 16.5’. He thought it would be ridiculous to make that 50’. Saxton did not feel 50’ would apply on most county ditches. Sawatzke said that would take thousands of acres out of production. Saxton said that is why he does not believe that will happen.
Daleiden’s concern if the bill passes is that it will take the responsibility from the County and transfer it to the DNR. His viewed the inventory as a tool that can be used to fight the proposed law. They need to know what effect it will have on residents of the County.
Kathy Jonsrud, 7646 Isaac Avenue NW, said she is active in the Cedar Lake Association, she serves on the Wright County Coalition of Lakes Association, and is a manager for the Clearwater River Watershed District. She expressed appreciation for the time the County Board has spent on this issue, and urged Board members to move forward with the DNR grant to complete the inventory.
Daleiden made a motion to apply for the buffer grant. The application should be a joint effort between Wright County and the SWCD, using Planning & Zoning. Before the grant application is submitted, it should be approved by the County Board. The motion was seconded by Husom. Borrell asked to amend the motion to include the language Sawatzke suggested relating to enforcement. Sawatzke restated the proposed language for the grant application relative to enforcement. He said the application could reflect that Wright County will work with property owners to educate, to share incentives and programs, and to voluntarily get residents to abide with the program. Daleiden accepted the amendment to the motion. Daleiden said whether or not the grant is approved, it is important that Wright County’s voice be heard. He said the County is concerned with the taking of property. He also stated that waters are an important component to the Board, and that something needs to be done. He said the County needs to identify where the issues are. The motion carried 5-0.
A Building Committee Meeting was held on 3-11-15. At today’s County Board Meeting, Daleiden moved to approve the Building Committee Minutes and recommendation. The motion includes appointing Husom and Borrell to the Committee. The motion was seconded by Sawatzke. The motion carried 5-0. The 3-11-15 Building Committee Minutes follow:
I. Courts Security.
Kelly said the purpose of this meeting is to continue the recent discussion on the Courts Security Study. Monica Tschumper, Courts Administrator, said her former employer at another county significantly increased their courts security recently, with a single point of entry and front door screening. They received grant funds to purchase a baggage scanner and placed it at the front door.
Kelly said a few years ago the Board allocated funds for a baggage scanner, but there wasn’t enough room at the front entrance to put it in place. The money was instead directed toward improving the security system with high resolution cameras. He thought cameras in the court rooms may also be an option. Kelly said the goal is to prioritize the necessary changes to accommodate the security needs of the Courts, the County, and the Departments that work with the Courts. He suggested establishing a Security Committee (Committee) to make recommendations to the Board.
Judge Mottl said they met with Sheriff’s Office staff yesterday. They also suggested setting up a Security Committee to develop security screening policies and procedures, implement testing, and training programs and exercises. Mottl said MacMillan and his staff have been collaborative in coordinating similar programs for area schools. Tschumper said the Committee could also brainstorm for grant funds, discuss policies and procedures, track who and what enters the Government Center and Courts every day, and inform staff of threats.
Dahl said he recommends establishing a County Security Committee. His venue is Safety and Loss Control Management, but security issues often overlap. Tschumper said her former employer found that designating a Security Committee was beneficial, as it separated Safety issues from Security ones.
Kelly asked who sat on the Security Committee at Tschumper’s former place of employment. She said there were Judges, the Courts Administrator, Probation Director, County Attorney, Maintenance Director, two County Commissioners, and law enforcement representatives. Daleiden suggested that Commissioner Borrell be appointed to the Security Committee. Mottl said the Security Committee would be a great first step. There was discussion about who would be on the Wright County Security Committee.
Daleiden said the best scenario would be for Courts to find grant funds. MacMillan asked whether grants typically include staffing costs. Tschumper said most of the grants she has seen do not, but rather, cover things like mechanicals and equipment. Kelly said once the Security Committee identifies what works best, grant funds can be targeted. Tschumper said obtaining grants is a long-term process.
Mottl said another priority is to design a contemporary security screening station. She doesn’t know if there are grant funds available for such a purpose. Former Courts Administrator Peggy Gentles submitted a grant application to the State for a space allocation study. Kelly said they have not heard back on that request.
Daleiden suggested constructing a door to the Courts area. Mottl said the Sheriff indicated that the optimal placement of a door to the Courts area would be on the first floor.
Kelly said a Security Committee could determine proper use of County resources and set priorities. Daleiden asked whether minutes would need to be taken. Kelly said minutes should be taken based on County practice. Due to the nature of the topic, the minutes would be brief. Some meetings may also be closed under State Statute 13.
Daleiden said his recommendation was to form a Wright County Security Committee. Daleiden recommended appointing two County Commissioners to sit on the Committee, to be designated by the full Board.
Recommendation: Authorize establishment of a Security Committee.
(End of 3-11-15 Building Committee Minutes)
A Personnel Committee Meeting was held on 3-11-15. At today’s County Board Meeting, Husom moved to approve the Personnel Committee Minutes and recommendation, seconded by Sawatzke. The following change was made to the Minutes: Page 1, paragraph 3, second line, change “about” to “above” (Sawatzke). The motion was amended to include the change. The motion carried 5-0. The 3-11-15 Personnel Committee Minutes follow:
I. Starting Salary Range.
Lee Kelly, County Coordinator, said the Salary Schedule recently changed from steps to an open range schedule for most union and non-union County employees. Previously, the County Board authorized the Human Resources Director and Coordinator to hire up to Step 3 as necessary. Kelly calculated percentages between Step 1 and Step 3 on the 2014 Salary Schedules. The percentage wage increases between Steps 1 and 3 ranged from 7 to 20.5 percent, with most at about 11 percent. Kelly said it would be helpful to have an established percentage as a starting salary range for all employee groups. He proposed 12 percent.
Daleiden said 12 percent is fair. Husom agreed. Kelly said there have been 5 or 6 requests since the start of this year to start salaries higher than Step 3 (the prior limit). Kelly asked the Commissioners regarding their comfort level with the 12 percent figure, and to reaffirm the process for addressing requests for a starting salary above 12 percent.
Daleiden said requests above 12 percent would have to go to the Personnel Committee. He said the request to hire above the starting range must be justified in writing.
Recommendation: Authorize the County Coordinator and Human Resources Director to recommend a starting salary up to and including 12 percent above the minimum of the salary range based on the applicants’ education, experience, and labor market considerations.
II. Request to Rehire a Public Health Nurse at Step 9 (HHS Board).
III. Request to Hire Technology Supervisor (HHS Board).
IV. Human Resources Director Position.
Kelly said he has been hesitant to make a wage offer to the selected candidate because the starting salary range had not yet been established (See Item I above). The salary amount the top candidate indicated falls within the 12 percent starting range. Kelly made an offer to the candidate contingent upon receipt of a satisfactory background report and the Board’s approval of a starting salary range as outlined above.
Recommendation: Authorize hiring the new Human Resources Director at a wage not to exceed 12 percent above the minimum of the salary range.

Advisory Committee/Advisory Board Updates
1. Wright County Community Action (WCCA). Daleiden attended a WCCA meeting on 3-10-15. The WCCA works with many of the same people served by Health and Human Services. He referenced a 2014 Report of Program Participants. The WCCA assisted 6 households with transitional housing but there were 12 families turned down as funds were not available. A facility in Waverly provided food shelf services and a clothing center, which last year served 3,373 households and 12,552 people.
2. Safe Schools. Potter attended a Safe Schools Meeting in Rockford last week. Wright County had good representation at the meeting, and they hope to have Hennepin County officials at a future meeting.
3. Public Works Labor Management Meeting. Husom said upcoming projects were discussed including the CR 12 project. The Wright County website includes links so residents can keep updated on the project.
4. Safe Communities of Wright County. Husom said crash/fatality data was provided at their recent meeting. There were over 400 DUI arrests in Wright County last year. The three-year data for TH 55 reflects 515 crashes, with 368 involving property, 135 involving personal injury, and there were 7 fatalities (4 of 5 last year were Wright County residents). Husom said the Highway 55 Coalition group discussed the speed limit increase on TH 55 to 60 mph. She said that will not be in Wright County. The increase will happen west of Kimball.
5. Workforce Center. Husom said the Workforce Center is determining 2015 goals. There is an upcoming Legislative breakfast. Sawatzke added that the Workforce Center Job Fair will occur on 3-31-15 at the Monticello High School from 2:00-7:00 PM.
