Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing to be held at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed lease agreements (term December 4, 2018 – October 31, 2020) for the use of one or more of the County owned (flood damaged) vacant lots. Motion carried.
Schwartz moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors approve the acceptance of the settlement offer of $100,000 to settle the matter of Black Hawk County v. Central Cable Contractors, Inc. with respect to an incident involving the East Bennington Road bridge as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer.
Nicholas said the driver of one of Central Cable Contractors’ trucks pleaded guilty in court to driving an oversize load over the bridge, which was posted for a lower weight due to poor condition, which became worse after the incident. He said the company’s insurers offered to pay the county $100,000.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
The Board discussed the issue of approving funding for a new Public Safety Software System with a cost not to exceed $3,000,000 that may be funded by other county funds to be reimbursed partially or wholly by the E911 Service Board.
Magsamen said he put the item on the agenda because it is important for the Board to prepare for selling bonds on behalf of the E911 Board, which can’t issue bonds itself. Laylin and Little and Schwartz said that their understanding from the previous week’s meeting was that they would get more information about the proposed purchase before they voted on anything.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz to table the matter. Motion carried, Magsamen dissenting.
At Nine-twenty-three o’clock (9:23) a.m., a public hearing was held as provided by law in the Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, Waterloo, Iowa at which time all interested persons could appear to file objections the proposed Ordinance No. 142, Chapter 10.05.040.
The Board of Supervisors examined proof of publication of notice and determined that the notice had been published on October 26, 2018 in the Courier in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Iowa.
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 Schwartz to waive the first reading. Motion carried.
Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin to close the hearing and oral and written comments were received and placed on file. Motion carried.
Little moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the rules requiring the Board of Supervisors to consider and vote on a proposed ordinance at two prior meetings be suspended.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Little moved the following ordinance seconded by Laylin.
WHEREAS, “An Ordinance Amending Ordinance No. 95, as Amended, the Black Hawk County, Iowa, Parking Lot Ordinance adopted May 9, 2006, by adding Subsection No. 1 to section I (c ), “the Criteria for issuing permanent parking, and
WHEREAS, pursuant to §331.302(5) of the Code of Iowa, the Board of Supervisors has suspended by majority vote the requirement to consider and vote on a proposed ordinance at two meetings of the board prior to the meeting at which it is to be finally passed, and
NOW THEREFORE BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the ordinance is hereby adopted and known as Ordinance No. 142, Chapter 10.05.040.
Superintendent of Maintenance Rory Geving said that the amended policy would provide criteria for both permanent and temporary permits, and that about 42 permanent permits currently don’t meet the criteria. He asked if the Board would want to allow existing permit-holders to maintain their permits regardless of the criteria established. He reviewed the current list and identified county and non-county departments that had permits that would no longer meet the criteria. Magsamen asked what other parking is available. Geving said most of the nearby parking, including the county employee lot at E. 7th and Lafayette, don’t have excess capacity, but the parking ramp at E. 5th and Water might. Laylin thanked Geving for establishing criteria, and said that all staff should be treated fairly and equitably, and that personal appeals to county supervisors are not appropriate. She supported starting fresh with new criteria, and then possibly coming back later and amending for necessary permits. White said this will make parking difficult for more people, and more people will have to leave the building to plug meters on hazardous E. 6th Street.
Little asked if the language grandfathering the 42 permit-holders was in the ordinance. Geving said it was not. Little said that the matter should not have been put on the agenda today, as it will have to be republished for another public hearing and vote when amended. Geving asked Assistant County Attorney Peter Burk if the language could be amended today. Burk said it would be clearer to defeat this version of the ordinance and bring it back in amended form. Geving and the Board discussed the desirability of a parking ramp on the site of the current courthouse parking lot, but indicated they didn’t consider the idea feasible at this time.
AYES: None.
NAYS: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White. Ordinance failed.
Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that pursuant to the provisions of the Iowa Open Meetings Law, the Black Hawk County Board of Supervisors shall proceed into CLOSED SESSION AT 9:55 A.M., with attorney to discuss strategy with counsel regarding the potential litigation with United Health Care pursuant to Iowa Code §21.5(1c).
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.

Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing to be held at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, November 20, 2018 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed lease agreements (term December 4, 2018 – October 31, 2020) for the use of one or more of the County owned (flood damaged) vacant lots. Motion carried.
Schwartz moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the Board of Supervisors approve the acceptance of the settlement offer of $100,000 to settle the matter of Black Hawk County v. Central Cable Contractors, Inc. with respect to an incident involving the East Bennington Road bridge as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer.
Nicholas said the driver of one of Central Cable Contractors’ trucks pleaded guilty in court to driving an oversize load over the bridge, which was posted for a lower weight due to poor condition, which became worse after the incident. He said the company’s insurers offered to pay the county $100,000.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.

The Board discussed the issue of approving funding for a new Public Safety Software System with a cost not to exceed $3,000,000 that may be funded by other county funds to be reimbursed partially or wholly by the E911 Service Board.
Magsamen said he put the item on the agenda because it is important for the Board to prepare for selling bonds on behalf of the E911 Board, which can’t issue bonds itself. Laylin and Little and Schwartz said that their understanding from the previous week’s meeting was that they would get more information about the proposed purchase before they voted on anything.
Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz to table the matter. Motion carried, Magsamen dissenting.
At Nine-twenty-three o’clock (9:23) a.m., a public hearing was held as provided by law in the Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, Waterloo, Iowa at which time all interested persons could appear to file objections the proposed Ordinance No. 142, Chapter 10.05.040.
The Board of Supervisors examined proof of publication of notice and determined that the notice had been published on October 26, 2018 in the Courier in accordance with the requirements of the Code of Iowa.
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 Schwartz to waive the first reading. Motion carried.
Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin to close the hearing and oral and written comments were received and placed on file. Motion carried.
Little moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.

WORK SESSION. The Board of Supervisors discussed potential funding for replacement of the E911 Board’s Public Safety Software that is 30+ years old. County Sheriff Tony Thompson said that currently there is a hodgepodge of systems that is imperfectly interfaced and over capacity. He said an estimate for a new, integrated system serving law enforcement entities throughout the county is between two and three million dollars, and while the E911 Board can pay most of the amount in debt service payments on a bond issue, it likely cannot pay on more than a $3 million bond. Since the E911 board doesn’t have taxing authority, it would rely on the county to issue the bonds and then pay on the debt, as it did with their current radios. Finance Director Susan Deaton said that the E911 radio bond was paid off in FY18, and no debt service payment was budgeted for FY19. Thompson said that when those radios were purchased they received a $1 million grant from the Gaming Commission, but although he hopes it will support another grant, it traditionally does not support requests for software. Deaton said the E911 budget is expected to have a balance of about $300,000 at the end of FY19. Magsamen asked why there is a reduction in the E911 board ability to pay. Thompson said 911 surcharge funds continue to dwindle, because even though wireless phones now pay the same surcharge as wired phones, there is a steady reduction in the use of wired phones. He said he expects to have three to five serious bidders on the system, and if the request for proposal goes out in January, data conversion and other preliminary steps should be able to start in July. Deaton said that the public safety radio system bonds will be paid off in mid-2020. She said that the county’s financial advisers brought up the possibility that the county could make a loan to E911 from reserves, which could be repaid with interest. Thompson said that there are a number of options, and he just wanted to start a preliminary conversation before budget time.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Schwartz said there would be a vigil that evening at 7:30 at the Sons of Jacob Synagogue in remembrance of the eleven people murdered at a synagogue in Pittsburgh on October 28. Magsamen wished White a happy birthday.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
Craig White, Chair, Board of Supervisors Grant Veeder, County Auditor
