CONSENT AGENDA ENDS

Moved by Schwartz, seconded by Little to receive and place on file with the County Auditor the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s office Annual Report for 2016.
County Sheriff Tony Thompson said that bookings and jail population are down, and violent crime is up, which means inmates tend to stay longer. Motion carried.

Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve the ADDENDUM to the contract received from Stanley Security Systems, Noblesville, IN for the Jail Security System Upgrade Project and to direct the Chair to sign for same as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.
Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk said that a clause called for the contractor to have $200,000 worth of insurance, which he and the county’s insurance carriers believed to be inadequate. He said another clause said the contractor will only be liable if grossly negligent, and he believes the use of the term “grossly” creates a very high standard not likely to occur. Craig Clary of Dewberry Architects, the consultants for the project, said that the language is very standard, and that while attempts were made to have legal counsel from both sides discuss it, that has not taken place. Burk said he is available any time. Clary said the insurance amount is usually $100,000 in such agreements. Little asked what the amount was in the last contract. Geving said he has been unable to find the original contract. Magsamen asked what the project status would be if the agreement isn’t approved. Geving said it would have to go out to bid again. Sheriff Thompson said that he pushed the contractor as hard as he could on these subjects, but he isn’t worried about gross negligence, because his department has checks and balances in place to prevent a jail escape, which happened in 2012 due to a mistake by a deputy.

ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. White expressed condolences to the Tichnor family and the Miller family.
Schwartz thanked outgoing President Barack Obama for his service, and hoped he could help to heal the country going forward.

After a recess the Board held a WORK SESSION regarding Country View. Bob Lincoln gave background on the facility. He said the county has no legal obligation to the residents there beyond its obligation for the Mental Health and Disability Services Levy, and that the county levies no more tax for the facility than said levy, and that Country View has cost-effective management. He outlined three options: (1) Do nothing, which is the easiest, but it ensures a future financial crisis or property tax increase. (2) Sell the facility, which creates the best economic outcome, but would cause political blowback from the impact on staff and residents. (3) Reorganize, because there is great demand for supports to individuals with complex needs, but it is difficult work and will require a more agile and responsive organization, risk-taking, exceptional leadership and investment.
The Board discussed the pros and cons. Country View Administrator Dennis Coleman said some state funding will be available this year for long-term care, but federal money he had previously hoped for has proved illusory. Schwartz said that he didn’t believe selling Country View would result in a good economic outcome, since 175 employees will be without a job. White said the county doesn’t have a legal obligation, but it has a moral one.
Patient Advocate Shirley Patchin said that Country View is the only home many of the residents have ever known, and if moved elsewhere there wouldn’t be anyone they knew. Lincoln said that in other facility closings there have been positive experiences for some moved residents, although some end up in nursing care. Country View Advisory Board member Dolly Fortier said that said that she felt some unnecessary services were being provided, and they might be legal but they’re morally unethical. Magsamen said that communication should be kept open so such matters can be discussed.
Laylin asked for a timeline for a reorganization to a public safety net for individuals with no community or private support. Lincoln said the decision-making takes more time than the implementation.

After a recess the Board held a BUDGET SESSION. The Country View and the Community Social Services budgets were discussed. Finance Director Susan Deaton said the $35.18 per capita rate for mental health and developmental disability services would be maintained, which would result in a lower tax rate given the increase in valuation.
Deaton discussed county employee salary and benefits. She said the county’s health insurance consultants, Perspective, recommend a 20.7% increase in health insurance rates. After discussion with Human Resources Director Audra Heineman and Helen Steffen of the Auditor’s Office, she is recommending a 20% increase and a 5% increase (meaning about $8,000) in dental insurance rates. She said this would likely maintain but not increase the Health Insurance Trust Fund, which is expected to end fiscal year 2017 at around $3 million.
Magsamen suggested that the dental rate be folded into a total health insurance rate of 20%, and the Board agreed.
The Board discussed the budgets for Human Resources, the County Auditor, and the Auditor/Elections Office.

On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.

Frank Magsamen, Chair, Board of Supervisors Grant Veeder, County Auditor
