Resolution adopted.
Gwen Bramlet-Hecker Development Director of the Riverview Center of Domestic and Sexual Violence Services addressed the board on the services provided by the agency. Other presenters included Alicia Smiley, Iowa Program Director; Kaylee Michelson, UNI Campus Coordinator/Sexual Assault Advocate and Associate Professor Michael Fleming at UNI’s School of Applied Human Sciences. The Riverview Center is seeking funds from the county to supplement funding from other federal, state, county, foundations and private sources to help them to continue to provide the hotline, advocacy, outreach and support services.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS: County Engineer Catherine Nicholas said the county roads are in fairly good shape with about 10-30% snow and ice covered in some areas. The warmer weather in the next couple of days will help melt what remains on the roads. She said she has a request for Youngblut Road near Gilbertville to be vacated. She will provide information to the board in the near future as this is a road that the county has done little to no maintenance in recent years.
Moved by Little, seconded by Laylin that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held January 9, 2018 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

CONSENT AGENDA ENDS
Moved by Magsamen, seconded by Little to receive and place on file with the County Auditor the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office Annual Report for 2017. Motion carried.
Sheriff Thompson said that while crime is down, the jail population is up due to area law enforcement agencies catching those committing the violent crimes. These cases take longer to get through the court processes so they stay in jail longer.Thompson described the year as a year of changes. The new security system software installation in the jail is going well. The old Black Creek system failed about two weeks into the transition process and couldn’t be recovered so the timing was fortunate. He said the new radio project is finishing up this week and going well with the test of the system for the Sheriff’s office going famously. Other agencies will now be migrated to the system starting next week. There have been administrative staff changes with a new Jail Administrator and Chief Deputy due to retirements. Magsamen asked if the state cuts to the court system reducing the court’s resources has an effect on jail population. Thompson said not so much that as the shifting of paperwork costs from the courts to the Sheriff’s Office involving their Electronic Data Management System (EDMS ).
Laylin moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to approve the ADDENDUM to the contract received from Code Publishing Inc. for codification services and web hosting for the Black Hawk County Code ending January 30, 2019 and to direct the Chair to sign for same as recommended.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.

BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the LOWEST REASONABLE BID received from Advanced Environmental, Inc., Waterloo, IA for the Asbestos Abatement- Flood Buy Out Property with a bid of $1,375.00 be approved as recommended by Susan Deaton, County Finance Director.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Moved by Little, seconded by Schwartz to release a Request for Proposal for Black Hawk County Insurance and Related Risk Management services. Motion carried.
Little said he would like to see the two board members, Board Administrative Assistant Dana Laidig and Building Superintendent Rory Geving be on the committee to review the proposals that are received.
Magsamen moved the following resolution seconded by Schwartz.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the TAXES DUE AND PAYABLE of the submitted persons, as indicated, including special assessments, and rates or charges, including interest, fees and cost, in accordance with the provision of §427.9 of the Code of Iowa, be suspended and that future property taxes on property owned by the persons will be suspended for such time as the persons remains the owner of the parcels, and during the period the persons receives assistance as described in §427.9 of the Code of Iowa.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz, White.
NAYS: None. Resolution adopted.
Moved by Magsamen, seconded by Schwartz that the PERSONNEL REQUISITION for the new Lead Worker-Facilities position (full-time) in the Secondary Roads Department be approved, as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer. Nicholas said this is the paperwork to fill the position that the board approved the reclassification for last week. Motion carried with Little voting no.
