Approve 5 Year SAS Agreement With OpenGov With The Option To Decline Renewal For Years 4 And 5 Hiivala stated the OpenGov Agreement was brought to committee. The option for an opt-out for Years 4 and 5 was negotiated, if done 90 days prior to the end of Year 3. He requested approval of a 5-Year SAS Agreement committing to 3 years with auto renewal of Years 4 and 5. Funding for this time period will be from Web Development funds.
Daleiden said departments have expressed their desire to utilize OpenGov. Pricing through OpenGov’s contract with the GSA will change next week. The County will save $20,000 by approving the Agreement today versus next week. Sawatzke asked how this compares to the offer of two weeks ago.

The motion includes sending the Agreement to the Technology Committee 6 months prior to the 90-day opt-out period in Year 3. The motion was seconded by Borrell.

ADVISORY COMMITTEE / ADVISORY BOARD UPDATES
1. 7W Transportation. Potter attended a meeting in St. Cloud on 9-23-16. Transportation alternative offerings are available, and information was sent to City Administrators by the Highway Engineer. Solicitations for projects will be accepted until the end of October. The group is also looking at Fast Track and Fast Lane Federal Programs and how those will affect future funding. Daleiden referenced a study to review the impacts a mall of entertainment would have on CR 19 by the Albertville Outlet Mall. Potter stated CR 38 and CR 19 were already included in a MnDOT study. When the mall project was announced, the study was revamped. He expects information to be available in February.
2. Central MN Mental Health Center. Husom attended a meeting on 9-26-16. Things are moving forward in a positive way as they continue to review programs.
3. Mayors Association. Husom and Potter attended a meeting in Hanover on 9-21-16. Two additional cities have joined WCAT.
4. GRRL. Potter attended the GRRL Board meeting last week. Sartell was approved for book lockers which will be placed in their community center. A grant will be used from anonymous donor. It is felt the community center is in too close of proximity to the St. Cloud Library to open another branch in Sartell. Potter said the book lockers may be a good alternative for communities that do not want to build a library.
