RESOLUTION ON THE HUMANITARIAN CRISIS AT OUR BORDER
(Following is a summary of the resolution, which may be read in full at the Black Hawk County Auditor’s Office, 316 E. 5th St., Waterloo IA, weekdays from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm. It may also be found on the county website: www.co.black-hawk.ia.us. The resolution is effective immediately.)
Given that the actions of the current presidential administration have created a grave humanitarian crisis, and that the United States has always benefited from diverse immigrants, the Board of Supervisors condemns the actions of the administration for its zero tolerance immigration policy and for separating children from their families, calls on the government to assist in the reunification of affected families, and declares Black Hawk County to be a welcoming community to those making desperate efforts to find safety and a better life.
Schwartz read a comment from former Supervisor John Miller indicating that he is in full support of the current board’s resolution saying that Black Hawk County is and always has been a community known for welcoming people who are fleeing to a better place.
AYES: Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. ABSENT: Laylin Resolution adopted.
Little moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that that the LOWEST REASONABLE BID received from Power and Control Distributor, White City, OR, for high bay lights at the Jail with a bid of $3,163.60 be approved as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.
Geving said the original bid back in June from this company was $1,674.40 lower than the rest of the bids so he checked into the lights that were included. They were not the correct lights, but the company said they will honor the original price with the correct lights. Geving said he has some reservations with the company being so far away in Oregon, but we have the support of local representative for the lights. Support from the Oregon company will not be in person. It is a significant upgrade with savings estimated to be $6,000 per year in electricity costs with the payback realized in about three months. 88 lights with a five year warranty will be installed. Magsamen said the company is now meeting the specifications so they should be awarded the bid.
AYES: Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. ABSENT: Laylin Resolution adopted.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Schwartz said Country View staff presented him with information that is available on Medicare.gov about the ratings of the two companies that presented to us for purchasing the facility. They have one facility with a four-star rating, one with a three star rating with the rest of them being one and two-star ratings while Country View has had a four-star rating for a number of years. He also met with the Washburn Community Association with regards to establishing a park where the school once stood. White invited all police, firefighters and emts to a Superheroes Day event at the Evansdale Amvets starting at noon for free food, fun and games. He also said twenty-five Veterans will be honored at ballpark tomorrow night.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.

Black Hawk County Board of Supervisors – June 26, 2018 (pm)

  Waterloo, Iowa June 26, 2018 (pm)
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 one-thirty o’clock (1:30) p.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, Frank Magsamen, Chris Schwartz and Craig White, Chair.
Absent: None.
Unless otherwise noted, all actions were approved unanimously.
Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin that the AGENDA be received and place on file with the County Auditor as approved. Motion carried.
The Board of Supervisors interviewed representatives of the two companies that bid on the purchase of the Country View Care Facility. The interview was primarily conducted by Mark Myers of Marcus and Millichap, which firm has been retained by the county to assist in the possible sale. He was assisted by Ryan Fleming of Marcus and Millichap, and questions were also asked by the supervisors, and by Attorney Eric Johnson, outside counsel engaged by the county for the possible sale.
The first company to be interviewed was Beacon Health Management, based in Tampa, Florida, whose representatives, Shane Gaukel and Andy Borzumato, participated by telephone. Gaukel and Borzumato gave an overview of their company, which was followed by numerous questions.
The second company to be interviewed was Pritok Capital, LLC, based in Chicago, Illinois, which was represented by Dan Feinstein. He gave a brief overview, which was followed by numerous questions.
After the completion of the interviews, Myers said he liked the fact that Pritok, which has four facilities in Minnesota and three in Wisconsin and several elsewhere, appears to be building a regional platform, whereas Beacon, which has facilities in Florida and Ohio only, appears to be attempting something new. He recommended visiting facilities of both companies over the next seven days with principal clinical and financial staff to get fuller impressions, and that the county should negotiate a letter of intent with one of them by the second week of July.
He also suggested that if the supervisors felt Pritok was a clear front-runner due to its higher offer, its closer proximity of facilities, and other considerations, they may wish to focus solely on visiting its facilities unless and until considerations arise that convince them to further engage with Beacon.
The supervisors discussed visiting the Pritok facility in Rochester, Minnesota. Little said that it is most important that key staff make the visit. Magsamen said that a majority of the Board could tour the facility if they visited in shifts of two or fewer.
Myers emphasized that Marcus and Millichap didn’t care which company the county chooses as long as it is a quality buyer, but that a company having other facilities in the area is a huge thing for him.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned at 4:06 pm.
Craig White, Chair, Board of Supervisors
Grant Veeder, County Auditor
