Black hawk COunty Board of Supervisors – March 19, 2020

Waterloo, Iowa March 19, 2020
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 nine o’clock (9:00) 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, Tom Little, Dan Trelka, Craig White and Chris Schwartz, Chair.
Absent: None.
Unless otherwise noted, all actions were approved unanimously.
Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk said that the agenda for this meeting was disseminated to the public with the mistaken time of 11:30 am on it instead of 9:00 am. He said that under the emergency provisions of the Iowa Open Meetings law the Board could proceed with the planned 9:00 am start.
Moved by White, seconded by Little that the AGENDA be received and place on file with the County Auditor as approved. Motion carried.
WORK SESSION
The Board discussed the county’s preparedness for Covid-19. Schwartz said that Human Resources Director Debi Bunger believes that checking employees for fever is not legal. He said there have been questions about employees still coming to work using the main courthouse parking lot. The Board agreed it should be open to all.
The Board discussed the need for having Board Office staff at the office. The supervisors reached the consensus that calls coming into the office will be routed to the mobile phone of the administrative aide.
Little asked if the Board had the authority to not accept zoning applications for a set period, since they aren’t being processed as normal by Planning and Zoning. Burk said the Board could call a moratorium.
Moved by White, seconded by Laylin to proclaim a thirty-day moratorium on county zoning requests. Motion carried.
Schwartz said he would like to consider making funds available from the county to small business owners in the period before expected federal assistance is available. The other supervisors said they would like time to think about it.
Bunger asked if the fourteen days paid leave would apply to employees who are sick with COVID or have COVID-sick family members. The Board agreed that the same COVID-19 timesheet code could be used.
The Board discussed ways to assure social distancing at the budget hearing scheduled for March 24.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.

Grant Veeder, County Auditor

Black hawk County Board of Supervisors – March 18, 2020

Waterloo, Iowa March 18, 2020
The Board of Supervisors of the County of Black Hawk, in the State of Iowa, met at the Courthouse in Waterloo, County Seat of said County, at eleven thirty o’clock (11:30) 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, Tom Little, Dan Trelka, and Chris Schwartz, Chair.
Absent: Craig White.
Unless otherwise noted, all actions were approved unanimously, White absent.
Little attended by telephone.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Trelka that the AGENDA be received and place on file with the County Auditor as approved. Motion carried.
WORK SESSION
The Board of Supervisors discussed County preparedness for Covid-19. Schwartz said he felt the courthouse should be closed and the county should declare an emergency. Clerk of Court Arnell Ernst said that the court system has to be open for some services, and she would provide a list so that courthouse visitors could be screened. County Attorney Brian Williams said that his office also had to be open for certain services, but that he was reducing staff at the office to two attorneys and two non-attorneys. He said one courtroom would be open. Schwartz said each county department should make its own assessment of what staff is essential, and he wanted to keep as many workers home for the next two weeks as possible with no break in pay. Trelka agreed.
Human Resources Director Debi Bunger said that she needed to know the different scenarios in different offices, and that it will be tough to maintain consistency.
Trelka moved the following resolution seconded by Little.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors orders that the Black Hawk County Courthouse and Veterans Affairs Office are closed until further notice effective immediately with the exception of essential court functions; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors directs county department heads and elected officials to determine which of their employees will be considered situationally essential for current duties and which employees are not, and that non-essential employees will receive paid administrative leave for two weeks effective immediately for the time that they are not considered essential.
County Auditor Grant Veeder asked if courthouse visitors will be screened for COVID-19 exposure and checked for fever. Schwartz said that he would favor that if it there are sufficient health professionals at more critical locations. Bunger said that that would normally not be allowed under Equal Employment Opportunity Commission standards, but that the standards make an exception if a pandemic is widespread. Schwartz asked Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk to check on the legality of the proposal and said it would be discussed at the Board’s March 19 meeting.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Trelka, Schwartz.
NAYS: None.
ABSENT: White. Resolution adopted.
Bunger asked if the Board intended for the county to pay the cost of testing county employees who may have been exposed to COVID-19. Trelka said he thought it should.
Trelka moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that Black Hawk County pay the county employee co-pay amount for any COVID-19 testing.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Trelka, Schwartz.
NAYS: None.
ABSENT: White. Resolution adopted.
Trelka moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.
WHEREAS a resident of Black Hawk County has tested positive for COVID-19, and
WHEREAS Black Hawk County is in imminent threat of or has suffered from the effects of a COVID-19 pandemic, and this has occurred on March 17, 2020, and
WHEREAS this is causing damage to public and private property, disruption of utilities, with an adverse effect on commerce, local government and public health and safety, therefore
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Black Hawk County Board of Supervisors declares a state of emergency authorized under Iowa State Statute and will execute the expenditure of emergency funds from all available sources, and may invoke mutual aid agreements and may request assistance from the State of Iowa.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Trelka, Schwartz.
NAYS: None.
ABSENT: White. Resolution adopted.
Burk said that given assemblages of people are discouraged, some future meetings may best be held electronically, but that the Board must be careful to have the Board room open to the public so people have the opportunity to hear the meeting.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
Chris Schwartz, Chair, Board of Supervisors
Grant Veeder, County Auditor

WORK SESSION – The Board of Supervisors discussed the preparedness of county facilities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Mary Robinson, chair of the Board of Health, expressed the board’s confidence in Health Department Director Nafissa Cisse Egbuonye and her staff. Egbuonye said her department’s objective is consistent communication, and described the ways they are providing information to the public. Schwartz said he thought there was a need for more widespread community screening.
Trelka said he opposed the opening of an emergency operations center (EOC) because it would put more people in contact with each other, possibly spreading the virus, and people would be exhausted early on, when more serious work may be needed later, and it may produce panic. Emergency Operations Director Lorie Glover said that she recommended opening the center so that all information can be consistent, coming from the same source. She said that staff from different agencies won’t be on site at all times. She felt that panic has already set in, with people buying out food and other supplies from stores. Everyone attempting to enter the EOC will be asked questions about their possible exposure to the virus and will have their temperature taken. Various other counties have already opened EOCs. Trelka said he supported a virtual EOC so that so many people won’t be in one facility. County Sheriff Tony Thompson said the EOC would open that day at noon and would have press conferences at least once a day, building muscle memory for the media to get their information from one source. Trelka said bringing people together there is a bad model. Egbuonye said that there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Black Hawk County, and she feels in is important to bring people from different agencies together to reduce panic and assure the community that it will get necessary information.
Building Superintendent Rory Geving reviewed planning for medical emergencies in the county’s Emergency Response Program. He said it contemplates a six-month program and covers social distancing, reduction of staff in the workplace, working from home, backfilling of existing positions, daycare planning, etc. Thompson said that some wives of deputies are teachers who have been approved to provide daycare services since their schools are closed.
Human Resources Director Debi Bunger said that employees are concerned about being paid if they are told to stay home. Trelka and Schwartz said they favored continuing to pay employees. Little and Bunger said some employers are allowing employees to use 14 days available and possibly future sick leave.
Department heads and elected officials then described the situations in their offices as to whether they could close completely, or close to the public, or try to reduce public exposure by having people access services remotely. District Court Chief Judge Kellyann Lekar said jury trials are being suspended but there are many other court functions that require the courthouse to be open.
Schwartz asked that department heads and elected officials provide lists of essential employees who would still need to work even if county buildings were closed to the public, and lists of services that can be provided remotely. He said that information about county departments should be prominently displayed on the county’s website and social media sites and posted on the doors of county buildings. The Board decided to schedule meetings daily to assure compliance with the Open Meetings Law, and cancel those meetings that are found to be unnecessary.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Trelka said he appreciated Veterans Affairs Commission Chair Glen Keith’s communication, and he supports the commission and VA Director Yolando Loveless.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.

RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said that county roads are in good condition, and no one complained about their roads at a meeting with the Farm Bureau the night before. She said that at the Cedar Wapsi Road bridge project, PCI is finishing the middle pier, beams for the first three spans may be set in the next few weeks, and the causeway into the east side of the river will be removed, and work will then be based on the west side.
Conservation Director Mike Hendrickson said that the Maple Syrup Festival at Hartman Reserve the previous weekend went well, with 11-12,000 pancakes served, and he was very proud of staff and thankful for volunteers.
Veterans Affairs Director Yolando Loveless said that at the VA Commission meeting the week before, a 59-signature petition of no confidence was presented. He said he had had no personal contact with the petition signers, and he would work on addressing them personally. He said it looked like the signers were from a veterans group in Cedar Falls that was unsuccessful in getting an office established in Cedar Falls and became upset. He said the work of his office is better illustrated by the 2000 veterans served in 2019, and that they hoped to serve more veterans in 2020, and to visit service clubs that he hasn’t yet visited. Laylin and Schwartz expressed their support for Loveless.
Moved by Little, seconded by Trelka that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held March 3, 2020 and March 5, 2020 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

Moved by Trelka, seconded by Laylin to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing to be held at 9:09 a.m. on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed Ordinance No. 77-241 from a request submitted by Blake Wayson at W of 2905 Cherrywood Road to rezone 1.55 acres from “A” Agriculture District to “A-R” Agricultural-Residential District to build a new single family home. Motion carried.
DISCUSSION/POSSIBLE BOARD ACTION – to discuss road embargoes permit plan as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer. Assistant County Engineer Ryan Brennan said that normally affected citizens will be notified of embargoes in advance, but the plan would allow the Engineer’s Office to immediately embargo a road in an emergency situation and notify citizens later. He said the office could issue a $35 permit for a vehicle in excess of the posted limits. Trelka said he thought the fee was a good idea. Little asked what it was for. Brennan said it covered the office’s costs. Little said that taxpayers already pay those costs and it would be charging them twice. Laylin said that other permit fees had the same effect. Brennan said that some fees are in Iowa Code, but this is not, and is up to the Board of Supervisors to decide. He said the embargoes don’t affect instruments of husbandry.
Trelka moved the following resolution seconded by Laylin.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve the Process for Embargoing Roadways and Issuing Permits to Travel on Embargoed Roadway as recommended by County Engineer Catherine Nicholas, including the $35 permit fee.

Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin to receive and place on file proof of publication of notice of public hearing. Motion carried.
Moved by Little, seconded by Trelka to close the hearing after oral/written comments are received. Motion carried.
At nine-twenty-three (9:23) a.m. the Chair announced the time had arrived in accordance with prior action and as advertised, for the receiving and opening of bids for the proposed Project L-7521 Fiscal Year 2021 Sealcoating at various locations throughout Black Hawk County.
The Board of Supervisors examined proof of publication of notice to bidders and determined that said notice had been published in the Waterloo Courier on February 28, 2020 in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Iowa.
Little said that the Engineer’s estimate for the job was $229,135. Engineer Nicholas said that $270,000 was budgeted.
The Chair announced the following sealed bids were all received by three o’clock (3:00) p.m. Monday March 9, 2020, as stated in the Notice to Bidders. The time of announcement being nine-twenty-three (9:23) a.m., the following bids were opened and read:

Manatts, Inc. Brooklyn, Iowa $212,393.80
Prairie Road Builders, Inc. Hazleton, Iowa $224,644.75
