NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said her crews were cutting brush. She said the Iowa Legislature is considering a change in the law that would allow state monies currently earmarked for the primary (state-maintained) road system to be given to local governments in return for a dollar-for-dollar swap with the federal monies currently earmarked for local road systems. If the local entities didn’t use federal money, they wouldn’t be subject to federal requirements like exclusive use of U.S.-made steel and compliance with Davis Bacon Act wage rules (payment of prevailing wage rates as determined by the U.S. Department of Labor). She said the Iowa County Engineer’s Association supports the legislation.
Human Resources Director Audra Heineman said the Iowa Legislature is poised to approve legislation that will make sweeping changes in collective bargaining in the public sector, prohibiting negotiation of any issues except wages, prohibiting payroll deduction of union dues, and requiring the annual recertification of unions. She said various areas currently covered in union contracts would need to be covered by county policies, and suggested that the county be proactive in identifying gaps and should send a message to its employees that they are valued.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held February 7, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

AYES: Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz to direct the Finance Director to advertise for a PUBLIC HEARING on the proposed Black Hawk County Budget for the Fiscal Year 2017-2018 to be held on March 7, 2017 at 9:05 a.m. in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, Waterloo, Iowa.

AYES: Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
White moved the following resolution seconded by Little.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to RESCIND the approval of Alternate #3 option (Complete Removal and Replacement) of the Geotechnical Engineering Report and East 5th Street Parking Lot Evaluation provided by Terracon, Cedar Falls, Iowa, with an estimated cost of $500,000 taken on January 24, 2017.
Little said the January 24 vote was based on estimates and suppositions that have changed drastically since then.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
The Board discussed cost options to address the Black Hawk County Jail Parking Lot. Building Superintendent Rory Geving presented three alternatives: (1) Remove concrete in 240’x45’ area, excavate about 24” of existing subbase, install 24” compactable subbase material. Estimated cost $175,000. (2) Excavate 4’-6’ of existing fill consisting of about 2400 tons of rubble and debris containing asbestos contaminates. Install suitable geotextile fabric over soils at the undercut level to provide a separation with the new structural fill to reduce potential for migration or subsidence. Estimated cost $300,000. (3) Remove concrete in 300’x45’ area, remove about 4500 tons of rubble and debris containing asbestos contaminates in area of 220’x45’ (northeast end of lot has a safe subbase and is therefore excluded), install groundwater observation wells, dewater as necessary. This would eliminate risk of pavement settlement due to poorly compacted fill and presence of rubble. Estimated cost $700,000. (All alternatives include uncovering storm water piping, repairing it if necessary and wrapping it in geotextile fabric, and installing 6” concrete/rebar.)
The supervisors reviewed the options and asked questions regarding scope, timing and cost. The supervisors asked about the problem of this project overlapping the jail security project, which will be complicated if the loading dock is cut off by construction. Geving felt the project could be finished by June 2017 with an aggressive schedule, but said that another option would be to wait until the spring of 2018. Finance Director Susan Deaton said that if the project is done in FY17 funding would come from reserves, if done in FY18 it could come from reserves or bonding, if done in FY19 it could come from reserves, bonding or taxation. Geving said he has talked to the City of Waterloo about the use of brownfield funding, but learned that this is usually only available for areas that are to be developed. Magsamen suggested a fourth alternative, which would cause the excavation of all the area proposed in Option 3 except for the area excavated and resurfaced in 2005, at the southwest end of the lot. Geving said he would return in a week with that alternative prepared.
The Board discussed items on the agenda for approving non-bargaining and department head salaries, funding of outside agencies, and funding Black Hawk County libraries. Little said that it would not be appropriate to approve these items until the budget is approved. County Auditor Grant Veeder said that the action has been handled in different ways in past years, and the issue arose because there was uncertainty about the Board intentions when the items were discussed on February 7. Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk said it is more logical to approve the overall budget before approving the individual items.
Moved by Little, seconded by White to take no action on approving non-bargaining and department head salaries, funding of outside agencies, and funding Black Hawk County libraries. Motion carried.
The Chairperson announced that this was the time and place for the public hearing and meeting on the matter of the issuance of not to exceed $950,000 General Obligation Bonds, in order to provide funds to pay the costs of improvements to public buildings and grounds, including equipment, remodeling, reconstruction and additions or extensions to the buildings, including acquisition and installation of a chiller for the courthouse and courthouse lighting and ceiling improvements, for essential county purposes, and that notice of the proposal to issue the Bonds had been published as provided by Section 331.443 of the Code of Iowa.
Moved by White, seconded by Little to receive and place on file the proof of publication of notice of public hearing. Motion carried.
The Chairperson then asked the Auditor whether any written objections had been filed by any resident or property owner of the County to the issuance of the Bonds. The Auditor advised the Chairperson and the Board that no written objections had been filed. The Chairperson then called for oral objections to the issuance of the Bonds and none was made. Whereupon, the Chairperson declared the time for receiving oral and written objections to be closed.
Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz to close the hearing after oral and written comments are received. Motion carried.
Whereupon, the Chairperson declared the hearing on the issuance of the Bonds to be closed.
The Board then considered the proposed action and the extent of objections thereto.
Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by White.
WHEREAS, pursuant to notice published as required by law, the Board of Supervisors has held a public meeting and hearing upon the proposal to institute proceedings for the issuance of not to exceed $950,000 General Obligation Bonds, for the essential county purposes, in order to provide funds to pay the costs of improvements to public buildings and grounds, including equipment, remodeling, reconstruction and additions or extensions to the buildings, including acquisition and installation of a chiller for the courthouse and courthouse lighting and ceiling improvements, and has considered the extent of objections received from residents or property owners as to the proposed issuance of Bonds; and following action is now considered to be in the best interests of the County and residents thereof.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS OF BLACK HAWK COUNTY, STATE OF IOWA:
Section 1. That this Board does hereby institute proceedings and take additional action for the authorization and issuance in the manner required by law of not to exceed $950,000 General Obligation Bonds, for the foregoing essential county purposes.
Section 2. This Resolution shall serve as a declaration of official intent under Treasury Regulation 1.150-2 and shall be maintained on file as a public record of such intent. It is reasonably expected that the general fund moneys may be advanced from time to time for capital expenditures which are to be paid from the proceeds of the above Bonds. The amounts so advanced shall be reimbursed from the proceeds of the Bonds not later than eighteen months after the initial payment of the capital expenditures or eighteen months after the property is placed in service. Such advancements shall not exceed the amount authorized in this Resolution unless the same are for preliminary expenditures or unless another declaration of intention is adopted.
PASSED AND APPROVED this 14th day of February, 2017.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.

The Board of Supervisors held a WORK SESSION led by County Zoning Administrator Adrienne Miller of the Waterloo Planning and Zoning Department. She suggested a clarifying amendment to the Site Plan Review language in the County Zoning Ordinance and explained issues relating to floodplain regulations. She reviewed the ordinance language regarding wind energy facilities. Wayne McGarvey criticized wind turbines and presented the Board with a list of suggested amendments to the ordinance. Tom Leohr also spoke against wind turbines.
Miller and Aric Schroeder of Planning and Zoning said that current language on permits required for “taverns, nightclubs and similar uses” may not be interpreted to include adult book stores or cinemas or similar adult uses, and the Board may wish to consider amending the ordinance in that regard. Little asked that Planning and Zoning present the Board with such language.
Magsamen said that there is a vacancy on the Planning and Zoning Commission, and for gender balance purposes the new commissioner should be female.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
