BRIAN ASLESON, CHIEF DEPUTY ATTORNEY
Update Regarding State Auditor Lawsuit
Asleson informed the Board that on 5-30-17, the MN Court of Appeals issued a decision upholding the ruling by Ramsey County District Court relating to the litigation involving the Office of the State Auditor vs. Wright County, Becker County, and Ramsey County. The Court of Appeals is a three-judge panel. Staff attended oral arguments for the Court of Appeals several months ago. The ruling of the MN Court of Appeals made three findings:
1. Auditing counties is a core function of the Office of the State Auditor
2. The Statute change in 2015 allowing counties to use private auditing firms did not take away the core function from the State Auditor’s Office.
3. The Statute allowing counties to opt out and use a private auditor does not violate that single subject clause of the State Constitution. The Court upheld that this was a properly adopted law in 2015.
Asleson said that Judge Cleary, the Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals, dissented and sided with the State Auditor’s arguments that this would decimate the State Auditor’s Office (i.e., allowing counties to opt out would take the State Auditor’s budget down to such a low level that it wouldn’t be able to operate). The annual audits are a revenue source for the State Auditor.
There was language in the opinion which invited the MN Supreme Court to weigh in. The MN Court of Appeals is an error correction court, meaning they review whether the lower court made an error in the ruling. Asleson said they indicated they can’t forge new law. This means if the courts want to decide that the omnibus bills are improper, that is something for the Supreme Court to do.
State Auditor Otto has indicated in news reports that an appeal will be filed. A formal notice has not been received but Otto has 30 days to do this.
The County Board discussed the cost to the taxpayers. It is estimated that the State Auditor has expended at least $250,000 in this lawsuit. This does not include what the three counties have expended. Daleiden asked whether any draft Bills for reimbursing the three counties were approved by the State. Greg Kryzer, Assistant County Attorney, said there was nothing included for reimbursement to the three Counties. The original passed both chambers but was vetoed. The special session bill that was passed did not include any special funding for this litigation. The application before the Joint Committee is pending and will hopefully be heard the next session. Asleson said notice has been given to the State indicating Wright County will be using a private auditor for the 2017 audit. He is unsure of the timeline for review by the MN Supreme Court but thought it was likely they would review this case. This was provided as an informational item.

(End of 5-15-17 Committee Of The Whole Minutes)
5-24-17 PERSONNEL COMMITTEE MINUTES
At today’s County Board Meeting, Daleiden moved to approve the Minutes and recommendations. The motion was seconded by Husom and carried 4-0. The Minutes follow:
I. Reclassification of Vacant Administrative Assistant I Position, HHS
Goodrum Schwartz indicated the recent retirement of the previous Administration Assistant I opens the opportunity to review and re-evaluate the needs of the department relative to the vacant position. Goodrum Schwartz stated there is a need for this position to provide more support to the entire HHS department such as coordinating and/or facilitating department programs and activities.
Goodrum Schwartz requested to reclassify the vacant Administrative Assistant I position to an Administrative Specialist position. The Administrative Specialist job description has been revised to include addendums specific to the duties and responsibilities within Administration and HHS.
Goodrum Schwartz also requested to post the vacancy immediately to move the recruitment process forward. In the event the Board does not approve the reclassification, the posting will be adjusted to reflect the Administrative Assistant I responsibilities and pay range. The Personnel Committee approved posting position immediately.
RECOMMENDATION: Approve request for reclassification of vacant Administrative Assistant I position to Administrative Specialist.
II. Reclassification of Director of Public Health Position, HHS
This reclassification request has been withdrawn from the Personnel Committee agenda. The Director of Public Health job description was revised to include changes to the minimum qualifications. The revised job description was reviewed by our Consultant with no change in rating. Therefore, the position does not require reclassification. The revised job description will be processed and posted.
RECOMMENDATION: Agenda item withdrawn.
III. Budgeted GIS Position
This item was tabled from the April 12, 2017 Personnel Committee meeting for further research including creating a job description and rating the position.
Halverson and Jobe provided copies of a final GIS Analyst job description and a proposed Org chart. Jobe is requesting to reclassify the GIS Specialist position budgeted for July 1, 2017 to a GIS Analyst to provide more in-depth technical support to the GIS Coordinator. The GIS Specialist is budgeted at pay grade 8. The new GIS Analyst classification rated at pay grade 13.
RECOMMENDATION: Approve request for reclassification of GIS Specialist to GIS Analyst with a start date no earlier than August 1, 2017.
IV. Centralized Communication
Kelly distributed documents regarding a proposal for a centralized communication position as part of 2018 budget process. Kelly shared information regarding the current state of operations versus the possible future state of operations with this position. Hesse informed the committee that the needs of the County related to a centralized communication position has been discussed in great length between management staff within Administration and Information Technology. Additionally, feedback was solicited from all department heads regarding whether the responsibilities of such a position would benefit their department. Majority of the departments indicated the position would bring value to their department. The concept was also discussed at the May Leadership Team meeting where a consensus was reached to move forward with developing the concept of the position for formal request during the 2018 budget process.
This discussion was informational only in preparation for the 2018 budget process.
RECOMMENDATION: Continue discussions as part of the 2018 budget process.
V. Performance Review – Lee Kelly, County Coordinator
RECOMMENDATION: Based on four (4) performance evaluations received, the Committee recommends a rating of “Meets Expectations”.
(End of 5-24-17 Personnel Committee Minutes)
5-24-17 TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE MINUTES
At today’s County Board Meeting, Daleiden moved to approve the Minutes and recommendations. The motion was seconded by Vetsch. Discussion followed on the roles of the IT Steering Committee and the Technology Committee. Kelly plans to bring to a future Board Meeting a change to membership of the Technology Committee. He stated InfoTech brought forth the challenge of the current Technology Committee membership being too large, resulting in difficulty in decision making. The motion carried 4-0. The Minutes follow:
I. Crop Productivity Index GIS/ Assessor Project
Presented by Tagarro
The Assessor’s office would like to combine available crop productivity data with GIS to enhance their ability to do quality assessments on crop land properties. The project was presented for discussion as the Assessor’s office hoped for expedited and priority completion. Tagarro stated that compared to a regular IT Project, this would take relatively few man-hours at about 69 hrs from IT, about 21 hrs outside IT. The Assessors were unable to be present for the meeting, in their place were Surveyor member’s Steve Jobe & Alex Halvorson; Surveyor is the owner of the GIS system. Monies were identified to pay for the project by the Assessor’s office. Commissioner Daleiden was not in favor of the expedition of the project due to lack of IT resources, current IT personnel available to complete the work. Commissioner Borrell did not feel that the project was a top priority.
Action: Project will remain on list but not given immediate priority to complete
II. Office 365 Status Update
Presented by Tagarro
Sam Sandsness, IT BA, was the project lead for Office 365. He recently left the County. Strobel, Sandsness’ Supervisor, is able to keep the Timeline of the project on track in his absence. Meetings are still on schedule, work is still being done for the rollout. Nelson stated that the Senior System’s Engineers have been actively working to prepare for Office 365, doing internal preparedness work. Fall 2017 is still the goal of initiating the rollout of Office 365. IT will be looking at options for Project Leadership.
Action: Update Only
III. The Future of our Voice System
Presented by Tagarro
The County currently utilizes Avaya for telecommunication. Avaya has recently filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy. Avaya still has good ratings and is considered one of the top telecommunication vendors. IT is currently preparing for the future in case that status begins to change. Alternate vendors are being researched in advance of any complications with Avaya. Changes will likely need to be seriously considered in the years 2019-2020. Riley and Kelly stated their main concern was planning for any replacement schedules for current technology, which advance notice would be helpful.
Action: Information Only
IV. InfoTech Workshop Debrief
Presented by Tagarro
The information from the Workshop was presented at a High Level as the IT Management Team would like to notify staff of any changes first. Main Recommendations from InfoTech were that the IT Department is in need of additional staff members to handle the workload expected. The Workshop Process allowed for the identification of the areas where immediate staff would have the highest impact. Daleiden stated that the Workshop really gave the IT department and the County Board a Roadmap for the Future in regards to what & how we need to proceed. Also that the money was well spent as the deliverables were very in-depth and other departments had insights as well. Jobe asked if this was ever done before for IT. Nelson stated that historically IT has never done an Organizational Analysis to this extent. Borrell questioned how Contractors fit into the recommendations, which Tagarro confirmed they are an option. Partlow voiced the past request of many departments, that it has been recognized that IT needs more staff, Departments would like to see that hiring process proceed sooner rather than later. Tagarro noted that a full update will be communicated once internal staff have been updated.
Action: Information Only
V. IT Steering Committee
Presented by Tagarro
The InfoTech workshop brought to light the Technology Committee’s current role within the County. That in all essence it is a Steering Committee for how the County will proceed in terms of Technology. Currently projects are discussed but decisions on those projects are rarely made. The recommendation is to have representatives come from each Sub Technology Committee: Land Records, Sheriff, Public Works, Law Legal, and Human Services. As Daleiden stated, the meeting would be treated as a mandatory meeting where decisions will be expected. Department Heads or a representative can also attend the meetings. If a project is on the agenda the Department will be invited to present their thoughts. The way Projects are prioritized and worked on in IT affect all departments, this change in committee model will allow for a more active, fair, and transparent participation in what projects are being completed.
Action: Implement Recommendation next month
(End of 5-24-17 Technology Committee Minutes)
At today’s County Board Meeting, the following change was made to the Minutes: Page 1, 3rd paragraph, 1st sentence should read, “Borrell noted that the Ag Society allows others to use the property such as the City of Howard Lake, other groups such as dog shows, as well as other events” (Borrell). Husom moved to approve the Minutes and recommendations, seconded by Daleiden. Vetsch referenced the Law Enforcement Service Contract Rates and inquired whether a cost analysis has been completed to include risk factors. He suggested building a fund for that situation. He thought this could fall back to the townships. Husom said the townships have coverage at no cost. The cities of Annandale, Buffalo and Howard Lake purchase this service. Husom said the cost formula can be reviewed again in the future. Chief Deputy Todd Hoffman said the formula has been worked on for 20-25 years and is always being refined. The Sheriff’s Office has worked with the Coordinator and the Board. The formula includes workers compensation, property casualty, health insurance, and other aspects of insurance. The motion carried 4-0. The Ways & Means Committee Minutes follow:
I. Ag Society Fairground Lease - (Laid over from March 8, 2017)
B. Asleson provided an overview from the meeting of March 8 at which time they discussed the need to update the lease agreement with the Ag Society.
By Statutory authority, the County can own property for the purpose of a County Fair; they also can lease to the Ag Society as a public entity and other similar public entity organizations. Asleson clarified the Fair Board formed the 501.c.3, not the Ag Society. We can lease to the Ag Society and they can allow the Wright County Fait to utilize the property.
Borrell noted that the Ag Society allows others to use the property such as the City of Howard Lake, other groups such as dog shows, as well as other events. Their lease allows them to sublease.
Asleson noted that State Statute does allow Ag Societies to purchase properties for fair purposes.
Kelly stated that he would like to see the Ag Society own the land, and expressed concern with County’s risk.
Borrell noted that the County should be indemnified by contract.
Kelly questioned if the County can gift the land or can we sell it. Asleson responded that Statute allows the county to sell personal and real properties to another public entity.
Husom questioned what other Counties are doing. Dahl responded that it is all over the place, and MCIT has indicated that it is up to the County. If the County retains ownership than we need to determine our risk. If we sell the land to the Ag Society, they assume the risk. We can defer most of the risk through the lease.
Husom stated that her preference would to give them the land. Borrell responded that he does not want the county to give up the land, and as a liaison to the Fair Board, it allows him to provide input on the fair.
Dahl informed the Committee that the Ag society has subleased the property to a church for $15,000, and that their proof of insurance is much less than it should be.
Asleson reminded the Committee that because we own the property we would always have risk. (Tort limit - 1.5M per occurrence)
Husom suggested that if they are subleasing then that money should come to the County. Asleson and Borrell replied that the Ag Society is responsible for all repairs and maintenance to the property and buildings, those funds can be utilized for those purposes.
Asleson spoke with Steve Jobe regarding the legal description; we can do it with a map and PID numbers, or an all-encompassing legal description. The Committee was in consensus with the all-encompassing legal description.
It was also the consensus of the Committee that a 20-year lease was adequate at $1 per year. Any costs over $10,000 to the property will need to come before the County Board. Utilities, repairs and maintenance are the responsibility of the Ag Society.
Dahl and Asleson will work on the insurance coverage. Dahl noted that organizations that are subleasing from the Ag Society need to be provide proof of insurance coverage to the County. Will get clarification as to who is under the umbrella of the 501.c.3.
It was suggested that Dahl, Asleson and a representative of MCIT attend a fair board meeting to help flush out the lease agreement and where the liability/risks exist.
Dahl said we should be sure to address safety. Borrell added that the County should reserve the right to take action to alleviate any safety concerns.
Recommendation:
Asleson and Dahl will work on clarifying and obtaining additional information to modify the lease agreement to include the items identified by the Committee for their consideration in June.
II. Sheriff’s Office 2018 – 2019 Law Enforcement Service Contract Rates
Hagerty stated that the Sheriff’s department has reviewed the contract formula with the Cities. They set the rate every two years being sensitive to providing the base level of service to all of Wright County. They value the contact with the Cites and work to retain those contracts.
Business Manager Athman presented the proposed rates to the Committee, noting that they did not completely redo the formula, but will be looking at that going forward. Information presented included the proposed rate increase of $2.50/per hour/ per year for years 2018 and 2019; 2018 is proposed at $72.00 an hour and 2019 is proposed at $74.50 an hour. Historically the rate increase per year from 2004 – 2017 has been $1.86. Athman noted that the largest variables are wages and fuel. Based on the proposal they anticipate there will be approximately $180,000 left on the table to cover costs associated with expenses incurred by the Attorneys office and other services that may be required. Over time, court time, training, insurance and work comp have also been taken into consideration.
Anselment noted that they did cost comparisons based on police departments within the county. The Cities that we serve are happy with the Sheriff’s services; these cities also provide the deputies with office space. When larger events occur within those contracted cities, such as the Montrose homicide the County absorbs those costs.
Recommendation:
Approve the Law Enforcement Service Contract Rates for 2018 and 2019, $72.00 an hour and $74.50 an hour, respectively.
(End of 5-24-17 Ways & Means Committee Minutes)
SCHEDULE COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE TO DISCUSS COORDINATOR LEVEL OF AUTHORITY
Kelly stated that as part his performance review at the Personnel Committee, discussion included potential duties that the Board may want to assign to this position. Borrell stated that discussion occurred a few years ago on whether the position should be Coordinator or Administrator. At that time, he supported the Coordinator position as it provided more control over the position. He is ready to review this topic again, as he feels Kelly is ready to take on other roles. On a motion by Husom, second by Daleiden, all voted to schedule a Committee Of The Whole Meeting on 6-27-17 at 10:30 AM to discuss the Coordinator Level of Authority.
SCHEDULE COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE MEETING TO DISCUSS LIEUTENANT POSITION
This item was pulled from the Consent Agenda on 5-23-17 to be sent to a Committee Of The Whole Meeting. Daleiden moved to refer this item to the 6-13-17 Committee Of The Whole Meeting that has already been scheduled. The motion was seconded by Husom and carried 4-0.

Greg Kryzer, Assistant County Attorney, petitioned this item onto the Agenda. Ordinance 17-1 was previously referred to the 6-14-17 Ways & Means Committee. He asked that it be pulled from that Agenda and referred to a public hearing on 6-27-17 at 9:30 AM. Husom moved to schedule a Public Hearing on 6-27-17 at 9:30 AM to discuss the Regional Inspection Ordinance. The motion was seconded by Daleiden and carried 4-0.
