                RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS.  County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said that her office has received phone calls about the unsightliness of windrows graded up on gravel roads.  She explained that material gets pushed off the road over time, and to maintain a 2% crown for drainage the shoulders are graded, producing the windrows.  The grass and weeds will decompose, making the piles smaller, and by the end of summer the material will be graded onto the roads.

                Interim Conservation Director Mike Hendrickson said there will be a construction meeting on the Hartman Reserve Center project on March 29, and there is a $15,000 grant pending for the project.  An electrical contractor is working at Black Hawk Park, and Hendrickson expects the park to be fully open in four to five weeks.

                County Treasurer Rita Schmidt said that property taxes will be delinquent on April 1, and said the public may pay at her office, at the DOT office at Crossroads, and online.

 

                Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held March 21, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

                CONSENT AGENDA ENDS

               

                UPDATES-Ben Delagardelle d/b/a Urban Services, Inc. gave his monthly Washburn Sanitary Sewer System update for January and February 2017.   He said there were three service calls and two locates in January, and one service call and no locates in February.  He said his pump inventory is fourteen, including nine rebuilds, with four waiting to be rebuilt.  He has been looking into purchasing more pumps, and finds that new pumps are $3,013, but he can get refurbished pumps for $1,520.  He wanted to get five to eight refurbished pumps to see how they work.  Little asked if they had a warranty.  Delagardelle said they do not.  Little suggested buying five refurbished pumps and placing them in busier areas and monitoring them.  Magsamen said to put in a request for approval.

 

                Little moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the BEST BID from Artisan Ceiling Systems, Waterloo, Iowa, for the acoustical ceiling tile and grid replacement for the Courthouse lower level in the amount of $53,880 be approved and for the Chair to sign the contract, conditional to the receipt of the Performance Bond and Certificate of Insurance, as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.

                Little asked if this would be done in FY17.  Geving said it would.  He said it is the first of five phases for the remodel of the lower level.

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

                NAYS:  None.                                                     Resolution adopted.

 

                Moved by Little, seconded by White to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a PUBLIC HEARING/BID OPENING to be held at 9:05 a.m. on April 11, 2017 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed Project #5009 Raymond Road Edge Rut Repair from the Gilbertville City Limits north to Dubuque Road (excluding the Hwy. 380 overpass). 

                Engineer Nicholas said there is a lot of traffic on that road, and this will serve to keep more people on the roadway.  Motion carried.

 

                Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz to approve the PERSONNEL REQUISITION submitted for a Commissary Clerk (part-time, replacement) as recommended by Tony Thompson, County Sheriff.  Motion carried.
                Moved by Schwartz, seconded by Laylin that the APPOINTMENT of Renata Sack to the Black Hawk County Planning & Zoning Commission for an unexpired term to end July 1, 2018 be approved. 

                Schwartz said that he interviewed all of the candidates on file, and Sack had the best working knowledge of zoning.  Motion carried.

 

Moved by Little, seconded by White that the Black Hawk County Board of Supervisors authorize the County Auditor to destroy the following:

PAYMENT VOUCHER INVOICES THROUGH FY13                         

PAYROLL TIME CARDS FOR FY13

BOARD MINUTE ROUGH DRAFTS THROUGH FY12

CASH RECEIPT FORMS THROUGH FY13

FINANCIAL EXPENDITURE RECORDS THROUGH FY06            

VALUATIONS THROUGH FY06

FAMILY FARM & AGRICULTURAL CREDITS THROUGH FY06

FIRE DISTRICTS THROUGH FY06

Motion carried.

 

                White moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve a reduction in the levy amount for the Mental Health and Disabilities Services Fund from $35.18 per capita to $33.18 per capita for Fiscal Year 2018 as recommended by the County Social Services Board.

                Karen Dowell of County Social Services said that expenditures will not be reduced, but the CSS Board saw that the year-end fund balance would be about 65% of expenditures, and since the desired proportion is about 25% they felt they needed to lower the per capita levy on counties.  Little said that this should have been done before county budgets were certified.  Schwartz said there is a mental health crisis and that CSS should have invested the excess funds into areas of obvious need.  Laylin asked if this should not have come to the boards of supervisors before the decision was made.  White said the CSS Board (he is the Black Hawk County representative) only heard about this from their executive committee a week ago.  He said CSS Director Bob Lincoln is extremely busy doing good things for the consortium.  Little asked what would happen if the Board did not approve this action.  Finance Director Susan Deaton said that Black Hawk County’s portion would go into the CSS fund balance.  Magsamen said the main point is that the county would be reducing property taxes from the amount originally budgeted for FY18.  Deaton said it would be a five-cent decrease in the tax rate for the Mental Health/Developmental Disability Fund (from $.87293 per $1000 of taxable value to $.82331/$1000), and would reduce the tax increase on properties valued at $100,000 as follows:  Residential, from a $9 increase to a $7 increase.  Commercial and Industrial, from a two dollar increase to a three dollar decrease.  Agricultural, from a $19 increase to a $17 increase.  Multi-Residential, from a $23 decrease to a $27 decrease.  She said the Department of Management has asked the counties involved to recertify their taxes by April 15.

                AYES:  Laylin, Little, White, Magsamen.

                NAYS:  Schwartz.                                            Resolution adopted.

 

                The Board of Supervisors discussed increasing the mitigation dollars for property acquisition in flood plains of unincorporated areas in Black Hawk County. On November 22, 2016 the Board of Supervisors approved submitting a Notice of Intent in the amount of $500,000.  The current estimated cost for six properties is $916,510.  Magsamen said that the county is responsible for 15% of this cost, and the state would pay the rest.  Finance Director Deaton said that the current amount is based 110% of assessed values; however, FEMA no longer allows calculating by assessed value, and the properties will have to be appraised, which may result in a higher amount.  The Board discussed whether it should pre-approve a higher amount.  Deaton said she wasn’t sure if the state would cover 85% of any amount over $916,510.  Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk said if the Board only approves an increase to $916,510, the county won’t be liable for anything above that.

 

                Little moved the following resolution seconded by White.

                BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve increasing the mitigation dollars for property acquisition in flood plains of unincorporated areas in Black Hawk County from $500,000 to $916,510.

                Laylin said there will be other factors to consider, that sometimes the property owners are responsible for part of the cost, and the Board may wish to employ the Iowa Northland Regional  Council of Governments to assist.

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

                NAYS:  None.                                                     Resolution adopted.

 

                HEARING

 

                At nine-fifty-six (9:56) a.m. 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 $750,000 General Obligation Bonds, in order to provide funds to pay the costs of improvements to public buildings and grounds, including reconstruction of the jail facility parking lot, 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 Little, seconded by White 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 were made.  Whereupon, the Chairperson declared the time for receiving oral and written objections to be closed.

                Moved by White, seconded by Schwartz to close the hearing after oral and written comments are received. 

                Finance Director Deaton said that this will add the amount for the jail parking lot to the general obligation bonds to be sold in FY18.  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.
