City Council of La Porte City – August 14, 2017

 COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS August 14, 2017 
The City Council of La Porte City, Iowa met in regular session on August 14, 2017 at the La Porte City FFA Historical and Age Museum. Mayor David Neil called the meeting to order at 7:00 PM with Council Members Eric Allsup, Jasmine Gaston, Kristi Harrill, Mike Johnson and Brent Sadler present. Also present were Jan Erdahl, Angie Hutton, Peg Mullen, Sherry Sheffler and Amanda Stocks.  Unless otherwise noted, all actions passed by affirmative and unanimous vote of the council members present.     Moved by Sadler, seconded by Allsup to approve the agenda.   Moved by Johnson, seconded by Sadler to approve the CONSENT AGENDA including the following: Minutes of July 24, 2017, disbursements totaling $98,692.30, Clerk’s report, Police report and Administrative report for July 2017 and La Porte City Fire Association donation of $6,393.34 towards the purchase of a server for the public safety department.   Museum board president Angie Hutton presented the MUSEUM REPORT FOR THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2017.  The report included work done on the buildings as well as a list of projects still in process as well as a summary of the summer enrichment programs, scheduled tours, events and rentals.    Moved by Allsup, seconded by Sadler to APPROVE MUSEUM DIRECTOR JOB DESCRIPTION.   Moved by Allsup, seconded by Harrill to adopt RESOLUTION 17-51 AMENDING MUSEUM FEES. The amendment provides free museum admission to active duty service personnel through the Blue Star Museum program.  Mayor Neil asked for a motion on RESOLUTION 17-52 AMENDING SALARY FOR PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR.  Allsup said that he wanted to table the resolution. He believes that public works and the sewer department should be separated with Weich working only at the sewer treatment plant at his current salary and assistant public works director Rob Williams moving back to the street department. Mayor Neil indicated that the proposal was put forward to bring Weich’s pay up to the level of a Grade III operator equivalent in the area and so that if the City was able to hire a Grade II operator, they could be paid a competitive wage. Allsup was concerned that if any of the current public works employees were to get their Grade II, they would not be paid as well because of the current bargaining agreement. Neil stated that all current public works employees had been given the opportunity to obtain a Waste Water Operator permit and no one had shown any interest which is why the City was forced to seek a qualified operator elsewhere. Johnson stated that the City is currently required to have a Grade III operator to run the sewer treatment plant and that whoever the City hires as a Grade II will need to work under Weich’s Grade III permit until they learn the systems and attain their Grade III. That person will also need to learn the workings of the street department. The proposed increase was compensation for Weich’s Grade III certification as well as his knowledge and experience managing the public works department. Harrill asked if the basis for the increase for Weich was only to create the appearance of a competitive wage to a new hire, as Weich does not actually do anything at the sewer treatment plant.Johnson stated that Weich oversees all operations at the sewer treatment plant and Williams operates under Weich’s Grade III license.  Moved by Johnson, seconded by Sadler to adopt RESOLUTION 17-52 AMENDING SALARY FOR PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR. The resolution increases the salary of Public Works Director Sam Weich to $29.15/hr. Resolution passed 3-2 with Allsup and Harrill opposed.  Moved by Harrill seconded by Gaston to adopt RESOLUTION 17-53 TRANSFERRING RENTAL FEES FROM GENERAL FUND TO MUSEUM TRUST FUND. The resolution approves the transfer of $450.00 in museum rental fees from FY17 from the General Fund to the Museum Trust fund in accordance with Council Resolution 16-82.  Moved by Johnson seconded by Allsup to adopt RESOLUTION 17-54 APPROVING TEMPORARY CLOSING OF CITY STREETS. The resolution approves the closing of Exchange Street from between Maple and Walnut Streets from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sunday, September 17, 2017 for an event sponsored by St Paul United Methodist Church.  Moved by Sadler, seconded by Gaston to adopt RESOLUTION 17-55 APPROVING TEMPORARY CLOSING OF CITY STREETS. The resolution approves the closing of Main Street from Locust to Commercial Streets from 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday, September 9, 2017 for an event sponsored by Eastern Iowa Car Club.  Moved by Harrill, seconded by Sadler to adopt RESOLUTION 17-56 AUTHORIZING CERTIFICATION OF UNPAID NUISANCE ABATEMENT FEES. The resolution approves certification to the Black Hawk County Treasurer nuisance abatement fees for Black Hawk County Parcel 8712-25-431-001 in the amount of $300.00.  Moved by Sadler, seconded by Johnson AUTHORIZING THE MAYOR TO SIGN CERTIFICATE OF SUBSTANTIAL COMPLETION – DOWNTOWN FAÇADE PROGRAM.  Moved by Sadler, seconded by Allsup to APPROVE MAYOR NEIL’S APPOINTMENT OF HOLLY ALTHOF TO THE BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT.  Moved by Johnson, seconded by Allsup to APPOINT KRISTI CLAPP AND ADAM ALTHOF TO THE PARKS & RECREATION COMMISSION.  Moved by Sadler seconded by Johnson to adjourn at 8:19 PM.   Jane Whittlesey, City Clerk  David Neil, MayorCity of LaPorte CityClaims for 8/14/2017General Fund Acco, Chemicals 1,101.70 Advanced Systems, Std Pmt 180.84 Advanced Systems Contract Pmt 21.84 BHC Health Dept, Pool Insp 2017 418.00 BH Waste, Contract   15,232.87 Black Hills Energy, Natural Gas 547.53CECHFP, Fuel 89.82 City Laundering, Cleaning 332.86 The Courier, Help Wanted Ad 799.00 Davison K, Mileage – 2 Mtgs 36.51 EBS, Health Ins Admin 122.74 EFTPS, PR Taxes 5,911.22 EBS, Flex 2,195.58 FSB, VISA 773.67 GIS Benefits, Life Ins 225.50 IA Dept Of Public Safety, Comm 402.00 INRCOG FY’18 Dues 1,073.95 IPERS, Pension 1,563.04 LPC Printing, Pubs 426.13 LPC Motor Supply, Parts 3.94 Menards, Fence Supplies & Misc 22.29 Miller Window, Window Cleaning 92.00 Monkeytown, Supplies 232.06 Motorhead Mayhem Svc, Oil Chg 160.25 Mutual Of Omaha, Std Ins 84.17 NCroud Company, Museum Site 119.04 Bergankdv Technology, Support 386.56 Orkin Pest Control, Pest Control 68.75 Racom Corp, EDACS Access 26.77 Stevens M, Computer Updates 40.00 Stocks A, Mileage & Meals (IMPI) 97.98 Teamsters, Union Dues 83.46 Thriftway, Supplies 104.28 Urb’s, 15 Bags Of Concrete Mix 130.82 Varsity Cleaners, Cleaning 171.60 Wex Bank, Fuel 681.16 Whittlesey J, Mileage 93.43 Total General 34,053.36 Road Use Tax Fund Black Hills Energy, Natural Gas 34.60 CECHFP, Fuel 1,437.30 CSC, Child Support 196.60 Coots Materials, Fill 2,345.58 EFTPS, PR Taxes 938.44 GPS, Inc, Quonset Survey 150.00 LPC Motor Supply, Parts 28.00 Menards, Fence Supplies & Misc 39.55 Star Equipment, Magic Screed 1,295.00 Urb’s, 15 Bags Of Concrete Mix 56.50 Total Road Use Tax 6,521.57 DTR CDBG Grant Fund Cardinal Const, Facade #12 13,871.71 Total DTR CDBG Grant 13,871.71 Sewer Fund CECHFP, Fuel 269.50 City Laundering, Cleaning 146.46 CSC, Child Support 10.35 EBS, Health Ins Admin 27.28 EFTPS, PR Taxes 387.10 Ferguson Inc #520, Pvc Epdm 124.28 GIS Benefits, Life Ins 24.61 GPS, Inc, Quanset Survey 450.00 IA Dept Natl Res., NPDES Fee 210.00 LPC Motor Supply, Parts 38.30 Menards, Fence Supplies & Misc 174.42 Mutual Of Omaha, Std Ins 15.28 Pollution Control, Lift Station  15,763.00 Teamsters, Union Dues 3.04 Urb’s, 15 Bags Of Concrete Mix 71.56 Van Meter, Lift Station Parts 360.20 Total Sewer 18,075.38 Ambulance Fund Airgas Usa, LLC, Co Monitor 404.95 Black Hills Energy, Natural Gas 30.93 Bound Tree Medical, Supplies 226.50 Care Ambulance Svc, Mutual Aid 500.00 Covenant Clinic, Immunization 143.00 EFTPS, PR Taxes 105.12 LPC Motor Supply, Parts 1.22 Orkin Pest Control, Pest Control 18.27 Racom Corp, EDACS Access 26.77 Varsity Cleaners, Cleaning 48.00 Waterloo Fire Rescue, Mutual Aid 300.00 Wex Bank, Fuel 85.55 Total Ambulance 1,890.31 Total Accounts Payable 74,412.33 Total Payroll Checks 24,279.97 Report Total 98,692.30 Fund RecapGeneral 54,744.77 Road Use Tax 8,620.40 DTR CDBG Grant 13,871.71 Sewer 19,207.35 Ambulance 2,248.07 Grand Total 98,692.30                   July 2017 Receipts General 105,832.30 Road Use Tax 29,603.95 Equipment Replacement 56,771.49 Employee Benefits 1,357.90 Special Revenue TIF 1,108.58 Economic Development 2,049.72 Debt Service 1,918.00 Wolf Creek Rehabilitation 10,000.00 Permanent Funds 1,951.75 Sewer 24,630.98 Ambulance 10,480.20 July 2017 Receipts 245,704.87

The Dunkerton Road bridge deck is being poured this week, and that project has about a month to go. Weiden Road, which was classified in 2010 as a Service B road, and thus receives minimal maintenance, now has trees that encroach on the road, making it difficult to operate a motor grader on it. She has contacted people who farm the adjacent property, and they are in favor of vacating the road, and she wants to contact residents in the area to get feedback, and then hold a hearing about vacating it in November.  Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held August 1, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted.

She was told by some of the dealers that including in the specifications that the vehicles needed to have a five year/100,000 mile warranty was increasing the cost, and probably wasn’t necessary. She said it was a holdover from bidding diesel vehicles. She said that combining the bids of the two departments wasn’t gaining the expected savings.  Hendrickson said that Conservation wanted to get a 2017 model, but only 2018 models were available in this bid configuration, and he believes if he bids his single pickup separately he will be able to get a 2017 model.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.  NAYS:  None.   Resolution adopted.  On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.

FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said all gravel roads have been reopened after recent flooding. Washboard roads will be graded as soon as they get some rain. The deck for the Dunkerton Road bridge will probably be poured this week. Poyner Road is getting cracks retarred before them being covered with asphalt in a process that seeks to prevent old cracks from coming through the new asphalt. The resurfacing should be finished in a couple of weeks; meanwhile it remains open with a pilot car.  Conservation Director Mike Hendrickson said the Conservation Board will hold a work session August 2 at 9:00 am to consider the direction his department should go. He wants input from the board, the staff, and the public, and he said he would update the supervisors of the outcome.  Moved by Little, seconded by White that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held July 25, 2017 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.  CONSENT AGENDA   Little moved the following RESOLUTION seconded by Laylin.  A. TO APPROVE, RECEIVE, PLACE ON FILE WITH THE COUNTY AUDITOR  1.

The MANURE MANAGEMENT PLAN (MMP) update submitted by Grassland Pork, LLC, ID#64518 located in Jefferson Township, Section Eighteen (18) in Buchanan County with application in Black Hawk County pursuant to 567 Iowa Administrative Code §455B.  2. The MANURE MANAGEMENT PLAN (MMP) update submitted by Jerry Van Daele d/b/a Van Daele Bros Inc. Facility ID#59713 located in Lester Township, Section Twelve (12) in Black Hawk County pursuant to 567 Iowa Administrative Code §455B.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.  NAYS:  None.  Resolution adopted.  CONSENT AGENDA ENDS  UPDATES-Ben Delagardelle d/b/a Urban Services, Inc. gave his monthly Washburn Sanitary Sewer System update. He said in June he checked all stations and did routine tasks. There were seven utility locates and two service calls. There are sixteen total pumps after buying five refurbished pumps. Magsamen asked for the cost differential between new and refurbished. Delagardelle said new pumps cost about $3,300, refurbished about $1600. Little called for a count of original pumps that haven’t been replaced, and an update on sewer system finances.  Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz  BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the CONTRACT between Black Hawk County and IIW, P.C., Dubuque, Iowa (bids due June 30, 2017 3:00 p.m.) for final structural and hydraulic bridge design and permitting for the Cedar River Bridge on Cedar Wapsi Road (C57) (IDOT Project No. BROS-C007 (145)–5F-07 and IWI Project No. 15107) in the total amount of $103,840 be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer.  Assistant Engineer Ryan Brennan said this was the lowest of eight bids, and his office has been very pleased with IIW’s past work for the county. Schwartz asked how bidders from Black Hawk County compared. Brennan said there was one bidder from Black Hawk County, and it was one of the higher bids, in a range of bids from $100,000 to $500,000, depending on proposed scopes.    AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.  NAYS:  None.  Resolution adopted.  Moved by White, seconded by Laylin that the LETTER OF SUPPORT for a Certificate of Need application to the Iowa Department of Public Health for Comprehensive Systems, Inc. to add four (4) additional ICF/IID beds to their group home locations in Black Hawk County at no cost to the County be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same as submitted by County Social Services.    Magsamen asked if the four beds would be eligible for transfers from Country View. Karen Dowell of County Social Services said she would expect so. Magsamen asked her to explain the reimbursement for the beds. Dowell said that while the county used to pay one-third of the cost, the state now pays the full amount, using state Medicaid funds. She didn’t know how many beds existed before, but said that each of the four Comprehensive Systems group homes got a new bed. Motion carried.  Moved by Laylin, seconded by Schwartz that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Cathy Nicholas, Engineer, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to purchase Mover Kits from Hilmer Rollers of Billings, MT, for $1,703, to be used to move bridge beams in the Longfellow facility.    Nicholas said that $2,000 was budgeted for this expense. She said the rollers are like skates, they’re fifteen pounds each, and they go under 40,000-pound bridge beams, allowing them to be moved by one crane rather than two. White asked if Secondary Roads had these before. Nicholas said they had borrowed them from construction companies in the past, and when they saw how useful they were, they determined to purchase some for the county. Motion carried.  Little moved the following resolution seconded by White.  BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the natural gas transport pricing received from Mid-American Energy for the Jail facility be locked in for the term of October 2017 through April 2018 at the current trading rate, not to exceed $4.23/MMBtu and for the Chair to sign the contract as recommended by Rory Geving, Maintenance Superintendent.  Geving said that the county has historically gone to the open market to buy natural gas for high-volume months at the jail. The price that morning was $3.95/MMBtu, the lowest he has seen in his seven years with the county. He said the highest was $5.79.  AYES:  Laylin, Little, Schwartz, White, Magsamen.  NAYS:  None.  Resolution adopted.  ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Schwartz gave highlights from his attendance at the National Association of Counties (NACo) annual conference in Columbus, Ohio. He said he learned about grant opportunities and received training in crisis communications, which he wants to compare with the county’s current plan, especially as it involves social media. He said he was elected vice chair of the NACo LGBT Leaders and Allies organization.  White said the prior week’s meeting on the 28E agreement for mental health went well. He said they formed quadrants which will hold quarterly meetings, from which they will report back to the full board. He attended the patriotic bell choir at Country View. He drew people’s attention to the financial hardship of nursing home residents and nursing homes themselves.  On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.  Frank Magsamen, Chair, Board of Supervisors                                Grant Veeder, County Auditor
