                RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS.  County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said gravel roads are in decent condition except for a few experiencing heavy agricultural traffic.  She said that Iowa leads the nation in structurally sound bridges and provided a chart with county bridges longer than 20 feet (total of 229)  grouped by age and showing how many are either functionally obsolete (design doesn’t meet current standards, total of six) and how many are structurally deficient (total of 22).  Magsamen asked if the structurally deficient bridges have weight restrictions.  Assistant County Engineer Ryan Brennan said that eleven do.

                Maintenance Superintendent said that the courthouse suffered a power outage on February 10, and the building’s backup generator failed to start automatically.  He said the original contractors and manufacturer inspected the generator and found a defective part on the transfer switch.  The generator was still under warranty (by one day) and the repair was made at no expense to the county.

 

                Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held February 13, 14, and 16, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

                NAYS:  None.                                                     Resolution adopted.

 

                CONSENT AGENDA ENDS

 

The Board of Supervisors discussed four options for the Black Hawk County Jail Parking Lot with estimated costs as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.  Alternates #1 (est. $175,000) and #2 (est. $300,000) call for partial repair of the lot and Alternate #3 (est. $700,000) calls for full removal of rubble and debris (for details see minutes of February 14).  Alternate #4 (est. $650,000), requested by Magsamen, would entail full removal of rubble and debris but would not include the approach to the sally port, which was addressed in a repair in 2005.

                Geving said his recommendation was Alternate #3, as it would eliminate slab-on-grade settlement.  Magsamen said that the price differential between #3 and #4 wasn’t enough to make #4 worth considering.  Little asked if Geving could guarantee that there would be no future problems with the parking lot if #3 were chosen.  Geving said he was confident that any future problems would not be the result of the buried rubble and debris.  

 

                White moved the following resolution seconded by Little.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve Alternate #1, partial removal and replacement of parking lot adjacent to 5th Street, to address the unsafe deterioration of said parking lot.

                Magsamen said he favored complete removal in order to have finished with the issue.  Laylin agreed, saying that previous limited solutions had led to more problems.  White said the county has many costly issues to address, including the residents at Country View, and Alternate #1 would fix the parking lot for a long time.  Little said that the estimated costs on all of the estimates were subject to revision, and he wanted to be certain that whichever alternate is chosen that bids would be subject to Board approval.

                AYES:  Little, White.

                NAYS:  Laylin, Schwartz, Magsamen.                                     Resolution failed.

               

 

                Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve Alternate #3, complete removal of rubble and debris and replacement of the parking lot adjacent to 5th Street, to address the unsafe deterioration of said parking lot.

                Schwartz said that Alternates #1 and #2 cost too much for half measures.  White said Alternate #3 was throwing money out the door.  Little said it would likely cost more than estimated, and funds are not budgeted for the project.  White asked where the money would come from.  Finance Director Susan Deaton said that the county could increase its bonding for FY18 and structure payments so that taxes are not increased for debt service until FY19.  Little asked if an engineering firm had been determined for the project.  Geving said the County Engineer’s Office has consented.  He said that the Iowa Department of Natural Resources will have staff on site during removal of debris, checking individual loads to the landfill for contaminants, which will potentially lower the cost of disposal, since all the loads would be considered to be contaminated otherwise.

                AYES:  Laylin, Schwartz, Magsamen.

                NAYS:  Little, White.                                                                      Resolution adopted.

 

The Board discussed Geving’s request for funding not to exceed $15,000 for landscaping near the Black Hawk County Jail Parking Lot. 

Moved by White, seconded by Little to table action on landscaping the Jail Parking Lot area until repair of said parking lot is completed.

White said the request was premature since the landscaped area may need to be torn up.  Schwartz said that even if approved now, the landscaping could wait until work on the parking lot is completed.  Geving said his thought was to incorporate the landscaping with the parking lot project.  He described the landscaping he had in mind, which involved planter boxes and dwarf English boxwood hedges.  Laylin said she appreciated the suggestion of landscaping, but thought other areas needed it as well.  Little said the county tried landscaping the park area on the corner of E. 5th and Lafayette, but it didn’t work out, because the county doesn’t have a department like Waterloo’s Leisure Services to maintain it.  Geving said he hoped to continue the theme commencing at the generator on the Mulberry Street side of the courthouse and continuing along the 5th Street side.  White said that when parades pass on 5th Street, people cover the yard by the courthouse, and landscaping could be destroyed.  Schwartz said that landscaping the county properties would be in sync with the other great things that are going on downtown.  Little said the difference is that the county’s improvements would be paid for with tax dollars.  Schwartz said it would be money well spent because it would increase property values.

                AYES:  Laylin, Little, White, Magsamen.

                NAYS:  Schwartz.                                            Resolution adopted.

 

Moved by Little, seconded by White that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Kim Veeder, IT Director, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: 3,924.47 for nine (9) docking stations and two (2) tablets for the Health Department.  Motion carried.

 

Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz to approve the TRAVEL REQUEST submitted by the Human Resources Department for Marianne Wood and Debra Bunger to travel to Altoona, IA for the Iowa Employment Spring Conference held April 5th – 6th, 2017 for an amount up to $1,066. 

Little said it will be a worthwhile conference but he didn’t like closing the Human Resources Office.  He said that Bunger told him in future training will be spread out to assure office coverage.  Bunger said that she would be monitoring phone and email while the office is closed.  Laylin said that Building Maintenance has agreed to look out for visitors.  Motion carried.

 

                Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve the request submitted by the Human Resources Department to authorize Perspective Consultants to create and distribute a REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL for a new Flex Plan Administrator.

                Bunger said that there has been no RFP sent out for this service since 2008 and it was overdue.

                AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.

                NAYS:  None.                                                     Resolution adopted.
