Black Hawk County Board of Supervisors – April 30, 2019 (2nd meeting)

Waterloo, Iowa April 30, 2019
The Board of Supervisors of the County of Black Hawk, in the State of Iowa, met in regular adjourned meeting at the Courthouse in Waterloo, County Seat of said County, at ten-forty-five o’clock (10:45) a.m., pursuant to law, to the rules of said Board, and to adjournment. The meeting was called to order and on roll call there were present: Linda Laylin, Chris Schwartz, Dan Trelka, and Tom Little, Chair.
Absent: Craig White.
Unless otherwise noted, all actions were approved unanimously, White absent.
Moved by Schwartz, seconded by Laylin that the AGENDA be received and place on file with the County Auditor as approved. Motion carried.
The Board held a DISCUSSION with Kim Veeder, Information Technology Director about an assessment of the IT Department. Veeder said the Iowa Counties Information Technology (ICIT) group has a tech team, which was honored by the National Association of Counties, that does assessments of county IT departments, and the supervisors could ask the Carroll County supervisors what they thought of the assessment they received. She said the only cost would be the travel for the tech team. Little asked about the contract renewal with ACES, coming up in May. Veeder said that she suggested a minor decrease, considering that Country View is no longer a county facility, and the Health Department has had a large staff reduction. She said she has not talked yet to the head management. Laylin suggested that ACES staff attend the May 7 Board meeting. She said that the Board has talked for years about having an assessment. Veeder said that former Human Resources Director Audra Heineman did a lot of work on an assessment, which is still available, and reviewed for the newer supervisors that when she (Veeder) became the head of the department, she wasn’t replaced, and that the GIS coordinator wasn’t replaced, that she used to have two network coordinators, and was in the process of replacing the second one out when the Board decided to hire ACES. Little said that he would like in-house staff, but it needs to be properly trained, and he isn’t sure the current staff is. He said the county has spent a lot of money on equipment, and he wondered it if was making life easier for county staff. Schwartz asked Veeder if she thought the ICIT tech team could help to answer those questions. Veeder said she did. Little asked if a supervisor could accompany the tech team when it evaluates IT staff. Veeder said she could ask. Schwartz said considering the minimal cost, the county should get an ICIT assessment, and then decide if further evaluation is necessary. Little said that the agreement with ACES could still be renewed, since it has a 60-day out clause. Veeder said that the IT infrastructure is pretty complicated, and hard for an outside organization to understand. She recalled that during budget deliberations she requested hiring a network administrator I and a network administrator II with different skill sets who would work together. She said there would still occasionally be a need for an outside firm for certain projects.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned at 11:02 a.m.

County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said that frost boils on gravel roads are still a problem, especially in the northern part of the county, and it’s no use to put more rock on them until they dry out. She said roads may be embargoed but it’s hard to do that for roads with many residents or that are needed for agricultural purposes. Trelka commended Secondary Roads workers for doing what they could in a difficult situation.
Moved by Trelka, seconded by White that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held April 23, 2019 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

Schwartz moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the three year CONTRACT EXTENSION between Black Hawk County and the Cedar Bend Humane Society effective July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2022 for Basic Animal Care Services at a rate of $26,748.31 per year ($2,259.03 per month), Confined Animal Pickup Services at a rate of $38.60 for live deer and $25.75 for all other animals, Dead Animal Pickup Services in the amount of $38.60 for deer with a $60 disposal fee between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday with an additional rate of $50 for after-hours services, and with an annual increase of 1% for all contract fees for the unincorporated areas of Black Hawk County be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same and to receive and place on file the Certificate of Insurance with the County Auditor.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Moved by White, seconded by Schwartz to approve 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.
Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk said that he had reviewed the agreement and found it to be all right. Little asked if there would be any county expense preparing the lot. Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said that some spots needed cold patch to avoid tripping hazards, and some yellow lines need to be painted. He hoped that Secondary Roads would be able to assist with this and keep the cost down. Motion carried.
Schwartz moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the LOWEST REASONABLE BID received from Clapsaddle-Garber Associates, Cedar Falls, Iowa for monument preservation and on-call surveying Services for the remainder of calendar year 2019 at various locations in Black Hawk County with a bid of $7,800.00 for monument preservation and surveying services not to exceed $22,800.00 be approved as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer.
Nicholas said that this is necessary since the county no longer has a licensed surveyor. She said that $15,000 is for the estimated monument preservation that will be needed for planned road projects, and $7,800 is an estimate for on-call surveying. Little asked what she would do with the surveyor truck and equipment the county still has. Nicholas said that there is a lot of survey work that her technician can do, which is not statutorily limited to a licensed surveyor.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the LOWEST REASONABLE BID received from Atech Freeman Security, Cedar Rapids IA, for the Pinecrest door access system addition project in the amount of $23,500.00 and for the Chair to sign the contract conditional to the receipt of the certificate of insurance and performance bond as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.
Geving said this is for ten additional door fobs, for the wing doors at the ends of the hallways, the doors to the basement and to the mechanical room, and in the elevator. Little said that some of the public have to go to the end of the hall. Geving said that a notification system for each floor is in the proposal. He said the plan has been received well by the employees. He said the system will be integrated with the fire alarm and the shelter-in-place program.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
White moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the LOWEST REASONABLE BID received from Paulson Electric of Waterloo, Inc., Waterloo IA, in the amount of $22,400.00 for the exterior lighting replacement at the Pinecrest facility be approved and for the Chair to sign the contract conditional to the receipt of the certificate of insurance as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.
Geving said the project includes 28 lights, some on poles and some on the building. LED lights will be used, reducing energy costs and maintenance, and resulting in rebates. He said there was a lower bid that did not meet specifications.
AYES: Laylin, Schwartz, Trelka, White, Little.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Moved by Schwartz, seconded by Laylin that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Kim Veeder, Information Technology Director, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to approve the statement of work for the migration to Docuware for $17,720.00 with Ricoh and the server operating software for $1,872.48 from CDW-G to be used by The Treasurer’s, Board of Supervisors Office, Human Resources, and Auditor’s Office. Motion carried.
