Resolution adopted.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said that the Longfellow shop is undergoing an electrical upgrade that will take three or four weeks, and Raymond Road was closed in Dewar for the railroad crossing to be redone, and it is now open and much smoother.
Country View Administrator Dennis Coleman said he had sent a message to the Board and was here to answer questions. Magsamen said that county officials visited Dubuque County’s Sunnycrest Facility and noted what works well for them, and he hoped that learning from them, Country View can become more financially solvent, given that this year’s budget will have to be revised to cover expenses above income using county funds. Coleman said that labor has been reduced to minimum allowable levels, with one certified nursing assistant for every 7.2 residents on the first shift, one for every 7.7 on the second shift, and one for every twenty on third shift, when residents are sleeping. He said that Family and Medical Leave Act usage is high, resulting in overtime and use of an outside temp agency. Laylin said that there is no FMLA usage at Sunnycrest and wondered if the subject could be discussed with staff. Coleman said that it is a legal benefit that the facility cannot restrict. Schwartz said that Sunnycrest has a staff person handling its financials rather than a firm like Brighton, which is contracted by Country View. Coleman said that Brighton costs the county about $7-8000 a month, and that hiring an employee to do the work would cost less, and make the Human Resources and Auditor’s Offices happy. Schwartz said he would like to explore bringing the work back in house. He said Sunnycrest doesn’t have the need to hire an outside agency to cover FMLA leaves, and thought that second shift bonuses may one reason for it. Coleman said that it’s actually a shift differential of $3.00 an hour, and applies to professional nurses only. Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk said that if the Board is going to hold a detailed discussion on a subject it should be advertised in the agenda. Magsamen said that Country View discussions would be on the agenda for future meetings.
