Board Chair Eric Johnson, CEO Cary Darrah, and Director of Investor Relations Jim Schaefer spoke on behalf of the Greater Cedar Valley Alliance and Chamber. They said changes are being made in the organization to better stimulate economic development, and they would like Black Hawk County to once again be engaged financially and by filling its seat on the board.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said all graders and trucks are out to deal with blowing snow, but she expects some gravel and paved roads to blow shut in the evening. No trucks will be out on Wednesday except for emergencies, given that the expected temperatures will be low enough to freeze up the trucks’ hydraulic lines.

CONSENT AGENDA ENDS

Moved by Trelka, seconded by White to receive and place on file with the County Auditor the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s office Annual Report for 2018. Motion carried.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Trelka that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to purchase Trimble survey equipment at the cost of $54,071.00 from Precision Midwest, Plainfield, IL.
Nicholas said it is global positioning equipment that they use for every bridge and roadway project, and would replace equipment that is 15 years old that has to be unwired to replace the battery. The new unit would have a rechargeable battery. Motion carried.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Trelka that the TRAVEL REQUEST submitted by Chris Schwartz, County Supervisor, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: $1,096.00 to attend the National Association of Counties (NACo) Legislative Conference in Washington DC scheduled for March 2, 2019 – March 6, 2019. Schwartz said that he will stay with friends which will save the county $1900. Motion carried.
Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to support the funding and creation of Iowa’s Natural Resources and outdoor recreation trust fund.
Schwartz said there is frustration that the fund hasn’t been created even though approved by a bipartisan majority of voters in 2010. Trelka said he doesn’t understand why the fund isn’t utilized when it has been overwhelmingly supported by the community.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
The Board discussed possibly endorsing the UNI Center for Energy and Environmental Education’s solar workshops to be held throughout Black Hawk County during the months of February and March. Maintenance Superintendent Rory Geving said this is supported by the county’s Alternate Energy Committee, and introduced Eric Giddens from the UNI center. Giddens said that homes and businesses that are interested in solar panel installation can get a free assessment by Eagle Point Solar, and anyone who purchases installment February through April will be bundled together for a discounted rate. Giddens said the center is seeking the county’s endorsement via use of its logo, and stressed that the endorsement would be for the UNI workshops and would not be seen as endorsing Eagle Point Solar or any private company. The proposal was on the agenda for discussion but not for action, so the county logo could not be included in the first of four mailers about the workshops, but could appear on later mailers if approved.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing to be held at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, February 12, 2019 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed Ordinance No. 77-223 from a request submitted by William and Abby Herkelman at South of 8902 Dysart Road to rezone 5.18 acres from “A” Agriculture District to “A-R” Agricultural-Residential District to build two single family home. Motion carried.
White moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the MINOR PLAT OF SURVEY submitted by Marc Gunnerson to minor plat 7.1 acres located at 11842 Gibson Road into two lots. A 2.44 acres parcel zoned “A-R” Agriculture-Residential District and a 4.66 acres parcel is zoned “A” Agricultural District. The property in question is located at 11842 Gibson Road, which is adjacent to the W. Eagle Road and Gibson Road intersection, and if approved that the County Auditor be directed to certify a copy of this Resolution for the Black Hawk County Recorder.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
The Board discussed the Memorandum of Agreement with the Salvation Army allowing the County to use their parking lot for county employee parking spaces located at 415 E. 7th Street, Waterloo. Board Administrative Aide Dana Laidig said that the agreement has been reviewed by Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk, PDCM Insurance and the Salvation Army. White said that too many employees must park on the street, and this would allow more to park in a lot at no charge. He said the county would plow the lot and probably clean the sidewalk. Trelka said there are numerous accidents involving parked cars. Laylin said there are lots on both sides of the building. Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said that there is room for 24 vehicles on the south side and 40 on the north side, that based on total courthouse employment the facility is about 80 parking spaces deficient, that the cost of hauling the snow away (once moved by his staff) runs $275-$500 per event, that parking lines would be painted in the spring, that the streets are dark at night and potentially dangerous. Laidig said that she would probably park on the Mulberry Street side of the building but not on the Franklin Street side due to the relative darkness. No action was scheduled on this item.
White moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Civil Money Penalty assessed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services against Country View Care Center (Notice date January 9, 2019), in the net amount of $14,217.45 ($21,873.00 minus appeal waiver discount of $7,655.55) be paid, and that right to appeal hearing on that penalty be waived.
Finance Director Susan Deaton said that this citation is due to bed rails that did not comply with regulations but caused no harm to residents, and that the situation has been corrected.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.

Moved by Laylin seconded by Trelka to receive and place on file proof of publication of notice of public hearing. Motion carried.
Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said this is for the two ground floor public restrooms, and the remodel will make them full accessible.
Moved by White seconded by Trelka to close the hearing after oral/written comments are received. Motion carried.
