WAYNE & LAURIE STEFFENS (Silver Lake Township) – Planning Commission Unanimously Recommends Approval of Rezoning Two Parcels: One Parcel Is 2.24 Acres Currently Zoned Ag General Agriculture and S-2 Residential Recreational Shoreland and the Second Parcel Is Approximately One-Quarter Acre Zoned R-1 Urban-Rural Transitional and S-2 to R-2 Suburban- Residential and S-2
TIMED AGENDA ITEMS
BOB HIIVALA, AUDITOR/TREASURER
Approve October Revenue/Expenditure Budget and CIP Report
Hiivala said that, through 83 percent of the year, most line items are where they should be and that he highlighted some line items that are above the budgeted amounts. Daleiden asked why the court-appointed attorneys line item is high – 125 percent of the 2020 budget and $45,000 over the budgeted amount – since the courts were effectively shut down by COVID-19. Husom speculated the cost could be higher because many court cases have been conducted remotely. Hiivala said a written explanation of that budget overage will be included in the November Revenue/Expenditure Budget Report.
Vetsch moved to approve the October Revenue/Expenditure Budget and CIP Report. The motion was seconded by Daleiden and carried 5-0
Authorize Purchase of 26 Omni Ballot Assisted Voting Technology Devices from SeaChange
Hiivala said he has spoken with other elections officials and it gave him pause because of mixed reviews of the Omni Ballot product. The Automark system the county currently uses runs on the Windows 7 operating system which, if Microsoft stops supporting it, will become obsolete and the county would pay the full price for replacement devices. He added that the grant is for $53,000 and includes a county match in that amount. Husom expressed concern for spending $53,000 in county funds for a system that is unproved, adding that the county doesn’t need to rush into making the purchase. Vetsch said that, if Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft, the county will need pay approximately $220,000 to replace the voting technology – coming completely from county funds. Information Technology Director Matthew Fomby said that Windows 7 will not be supported after January 2021. Potter said that, since the county has until December 31, 2020 to expend the grant funds, that the item should be tabled for one week so more information can be gathered about the effectiveness of the Omni Ballot Assisted Voting Technology devices.
Potter moved to table the discussion one week for more information to be gathered and brought back to the December 1, 2020 County Board meeting. The motion was second by Borrell and carried 5-0
MATT DETJEN, AG & DRAINAGE
Approve Findings and Order Directing a Repair to Wright County Ditch #10 Pursuant to Minnesota State Statute 103E.715
Borrell asked about the bidding process and whether there will be an opportunity for local contractors to bid on the project. Staff is expected to put out bids in January and the bids will be broken down into five alternate proposals with different start/end times, which should encourage local bidders to be part of the bidding process.
Vetsch moved to approve the findings and order directing a repair to Wright County Ditch #10 Pursuant to Minnesota State Statute 103E.715. The motion was seconded by Borrell and carried 5-0
MARC MATTICE, PARKS & RECREATION
Review and Take Action on the Recommendation from the Focus Group Related to Nature-Based Education and Potential Expansion
Mattice provided background on the project, which is being proposed by the Monticello School District (MSD), to construct a building that will serve as 12 classrooms in Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park for the expansion of MSD’s nature-based learning program. A lengthy discussion took place at a November 3, 2020 Committee of the Whole meeting and a focus group was selected to vet out the issue deeper, including members from MSD, Mattice, Vetsch and Daleiden. That group met November 10 and recommended to the County Board that it move forward with hiring a firm to help better understand the costs associated with facility construction. Two quotes were received – one for $10,000 and another for $9,500 with the cost to be shared by MSD and the county.
Vetsch stated his concern is that what MSD is going to want is vastly different that what the county would construct in a multi-purpose facility of its own. He added that the project may far exceed the initial cost projection of $2 million, instead being in the $4-6 million range. Husom said the facility would include 10-12 classrooms, a building design the county wouldn’t construct for a facility of its own. Mattice said, if built, the construction costs would be borne by Wright County, which would then lease the building to MSD – adding that such a structure is not in the 5-Year Parks & Recreation Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) and would likely be 10 years out in construction under the county’s current CIP given aging infrastructure throughout the system and other projects that have been deemed more critical.
Husom said she supports nature-based learning but has concerns about the county spending significant money to construct the facility. Daleiden said the purpose of hiring a firm to conduct a cost analysis study for the project would be to get a realistic, accurate number, which neither the county nor MSD knows at this time. Borrell said that if there was an existing facility in place, he would be more supportive, but has a concern over building a new structure that fits MSD’s needs while not necessarily benefitting the county’s interests. Vetsch said, if the County Board doesn’t have an interest, the money spent on the construction documents would be wasted. Mattice said that the Parks Commission’s feeling is that any new construction needs to serve the county first and any outside entity second. Mattice added that, if the building isn’t going to be constructed for 10 years, the numbers gleaned from a cost analysis now would be outdated and meaningless.
Potter said that buildings need to support the core functions of government, adding that the County Board heard vocal opposition to building the Justice Center and new Government Center – both of which clearly serve the core function of government. Potter agreed that the cost projections in 2020 dollars would be irrelevant 10 years later.
Potter moved to deny the request to hire a firm to provide cost projections for a structure in Bertram Chain of Lakes Regional Park. The motion was seconded by Daleiden and carried 5-0
ADMINISTRATION
Resolution for the Establishment of the Wright County Economic Development Authority
Borrell stated that he has been against the creation of a county EDA, but was convinced by Vetsch that it was needed to liquidate county buildings when the remainder of the county employees currently working in the Government Center and Health & Human Services Center move into the new Government Center. Borrell asked that, if approved, the EDA have a five-year sunset to close. Vetsch asked Bruce Kimmel of Ehlers what happens to any funds that could be under EDA control or projects that are ongoing if there is a hard-sunset date. Kimmel said that the EDA is a sub-division of county government and that an EDA could be retained but allowed to lay dormant. Daleiden asked that, if the EDA sells the county properties, does the money generated remain with the EDA or can it go into the county’s General Fund. Kimmel said contract language can be drawn up between Wright County and the EDA that is flexible and can be laid out into parameters set by the County Board.
Vetsch said there are three reasons for the creation of a Wright County EDA – the liquidation of county properties, to partner with cities and townships in the county to help them meet their goals and to access state and federal grant programs that aren’t available without having a county EDA. He added that there is zero interest n the part of anyone on the County Board to create a taxing authority. One of the benefits of a county EDA in relationship to cities and townships is the expansion of broadband networks and the increased ability to access grant funds for that purpose. Borrell said he would like to see language in a resolution to have the County Board re-affirm its support in five years as opposed to writing in a sunset date. Kimmel said that Section 5.02 of the enabling resolution to create the county EDA speaks specifically to the EDA being able to be modified or allowed to fallow, especially seeing as five of the initial seven members are going to be County Commissioners.
Vetsch said there is value to having a county EDA in place even if it is dormant so there doesn’t have to be a repeat of the process that went into creating the current proposed EDA. Kimmel stated he liked Vetsch’s proposal to make the language in the EDA by-laws more robust to justify each year whether the wishes of the County Board and EDA Board are to keep it active, make it inactive or abolish it completely. Kimmel said that, moving forward, the county EDA would approve internal by-laws and the selection of the other two members in early 2021.
Vetsch moved to adopt a resolution for the establish of the Wright County Economic Development Authority. The motion was second by Potter and carried 5-0
GREG KRYZER, ATTORNEY’S OFFICE
Public Hearing on 2020 Assessments
The public hearing was scheduled for three parcels that were addressed separately – one in Chatham Township for a Public Health cleanup in the amount of $914.24, a court-ordered abatement for an illegal recreational vehicle in French Lake Township in the amount of $4,802.68 and a court-ordered septic system upgrade in Silver Creek Township in the amount $15,977. No members of the public attended the public hearing or provided written comment. Notice was published and certified letters were sent to the property owners.
Vetsch moved to approve the assessment of $914.24 for a property located at 413 Coburn Avenue in Chatham Township. The motion was seconded by Potter and carried 5-0
Daleiden moved to approve the assessment of $4,802.68 for a property located at 4695 Rhoades Avenue NW in French Lake Township. The motion was seconded by Vetsch and carried 5-0
Vetsch moved to approve the assessment of $15,977 for a property located at 228 97th St. NW in Silver Creek Township. The motion was seconded by Potter and carried 5-0
MATT TREICHLER, SHERIFF’S OFFICE
Seeking Board Approval to Enter a Joint Powers Agreement with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to Participate in the Minnesota Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force
Treichler said the Wright County Sheriff’s Office has been working loosely with the task since 2016 and is seeking to formalize its participation by entering into the Joint Powers Agreement. He said being a member of the Task Force would allow the WCSO to seek reimbursement for training, equipment resources, overtime pay, and costs associated with cases, as well as giving the WCSO an official access point to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Task Force. Treichler said this year alone, the WCSO has worked 15 cases that fall under the definition of Internet Crimes Against Children, up from eight cases in 2019.
Potter moved to allow the Wright County Sheriff’s Office to enter into a Joint Powers Agreement with the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension to participate in the Minnesota Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The motion was seconded by Vetsch and carried 5-0
ITEMS FOR CONSIDERATION

I. DISCUSS 2020 SALARIES OF ELECTED OFFICIALS
County Attorney
Brian Lutes, In-coming County Attorney, discussed information related to compensation for his position. Darek Vetsch, County Commissioner, said that he is proposing an annual salary of $161,000 to $162,000 per year. B. Lutes asked for an annual salary of $162,000 per year to bring his compensation closer to that of comparable counties.
Recommendation: Authorize an annual compensation of $162,000 for 2021 for the County Attorney.
Sheriff
Sean Deringer, County Sheriff, said the Wright County Sheriff’s Office is the third largest in the State, with more contracts than any other sheriff’s office, and the largest patrol division in Minnesota. His current salary is $148,000 per year, which is the third lowest salary for a Sheriff in our comparable counties. Deringer said he receives calls at all hours of the day and night and works 60-75 hours per week. The consensus was to increase the Wright County Sheriff’s compensation to a salary of $161,500 for 2021.
Recommendation: Authorize an annual compensation of $161,500 for 2021 for the County Sheriff.
Auditor/Treasurer
Bob Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, discussed his request for an increase of 2.25 percent, for an annual compensation of $141,270.65. The consensus was to increase the Wright County Auditor/Treasurer compensation by 1.5% to a salary of $140,235.00 for 2021
Recommendation: Authorize an annual compensation of 140,235.00 for 2021 for the Auditor/Treasurer.
County Commissioners

Recommendation: Authorize the salary for the County Board of Commissioners for 2021 to be $51,045.00.
11-20-20 COMMITTEE OF THE WHOLE
At today’s meeting, Vetsch moved to approve the November 20, 2020 Committee of the Whole meeting as presented. The motion was seconded by Borrell and carried 5-0.
2021 LEGISLATIVE PRIORITIES
The Wright County Board met with State Legislators to address the top priorities that the County has identified. Those top priorities are outlined below. (These and additional priorities are attached)
I. Driver Vehicle Services Testing
Wright County asks that the state consider delegating ability to counties to conduct tests. Request that the State agree to open a testing location in Buffalo, as the new government center, and that the location be open more than six hours per day, two days per week.
II. Elections Funding and Processes
The November 3, 2020 election represented a paradigm shift in voting, with record number of voter turnout, of which many utilized the absentee ballot or early voting rather than the traditional method of voting in person. We anticipate that this will remain the new normal, therefore we would like to suggest:
• Increase window of time for direct balloting (early voting)
• Additional days to process envelope absentees
• Allocate funds for upgrades to or replacement of Statewide Voter Registration System (SVRS)
• Eliminate counting write-in votes for candidates for local office who did not file a request to have their write-in votes counted.
• Require Secretary of State approval of all absentee ballot applications provide by other agencies for form and content prior to distribution to voters.
• Provide additional funding for voter education outreach.
• Waive witness requirement for registered voters.
III. Wright County supports continuing Health and Human Services waivers and telehealth strategies that demonstrate administrative efficiency and improve outcomes and service delivery.
In response to COVID-19, the DHS allowed for flexibilities, or waivers, to service programs. These changes allowed counties to continue programming despite closed offices. Wright County seeks to improve services by continuation of these waivers.
IV. Increased Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Funding
AIS funding has remained flat over the past few years, the County would like to see this funding increased, as AIS has become increasingly prevalent in Wright County lakes. The County Commissioners expressed their thank you to the legislators for working hard for the citizens of Wright County, their efforts are greatly appreciated.
ADMINISTRATION
Schedule Closed Session Committee of the Whole (COTW) Re: County Administrator Performance Review
Potter moved to schedule a closed session Committee of the Whole to conduct a performance review of County Administrator Lee Kelly at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 14. The motion was seconded by Daleiden and carried 5-0
ADVISORY COMMITTEE/ADVISORY BOARD UPDATES
Wellness Committee. Daleiden attended the meeting Tuesday, November 17, 2020. Discussion included the Better Back program, which had 98 employees enroll. There is a need for Bloodmobile volunteers, which will be held Thursday, December 3, 2020. The Jingle All the Way program runs from Monday, November 23 to Tuesday, January 5, 2021 – a program designed to keep weight off during the holiday season.
Trailblazer Transit. Vetsch and Potter attended the meeting, which was held Wednesday, November 18, 2020. Due to the pandemic, ridership is down, especially with the system’s largest client Functional Industries. Veterans Services Director Greg Pickard asked if Trailblazer is going to continue its program of giving veterans rides to VA facilities in the Twin Cities and St. Cloud. Vetsch responded that the program will continue at least through February 2021. Potter praised Trailblazer for stepping up in March when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down much of the county. Since March, Trailblazer has delivered more than 60,000 meals and Potter thanked them for stepping up and filling that void.
Law Library Committee. Husom attended the meeting – the first since the Law Library moved into the Justice Center. The committee reviewed its annual report and 2021 budget. Husom was named the chair of the committee for 2021. She commented that the service has been greatly utilized. County Attorney Tom Kelly donated some of his family’s law books to be included in the collection.
Safe Harbor. Husom attended the meeting of the board, which deals with sexually exploited youth. The group has been working on protocols and plans to do a presentation for the Wright County Board at some point in 2021.
The meeting adjourned at 10:24 a.m.
