PROCEEDINGS OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS MONDAY, MARCH 29, 1993 8TH JUDICIAL DISTRICT PROBATION DEPARTMENT PRESENTATION (#189) The Board of County Commissioners met at 10:00 a.m. in regular session with Scott Courtney, Acting Chief of Probation Services. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were Gina Dersham, Domestic Violence Evaluation Specialist; Roland Gilmore, Probation Supervisor; and Wayne Lawler, Acting County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves. Mr. Gilmore provided the history and an overview of the Domestic Violence Monitoring Program, noting that previously the program was supervised out of the District Attorney's Office. In 1991, the District Attorney realized it was a conflict of interest to be prosecuting as well as supervising offenders of domestic violence. Therefore, they requested Community Corrections to supervise the offenders on a temporary basis, which within one year increased to over 600 offenders. Realizing the magnitude of this program, the Community Corrections Advisory Board was consulted for ideas how to continue supervision of these clients. Mr. Paul Cooper, Director of Community Corrections, came to the Board requesting an additional FTE; the request was denied. The Advisory Board determined that Community Corrections should not be handling this program and recommended the program be dropped. Mr. Gilmore applied for seed money from the State, the program was funded for one year, and Ms. Dersham took over the Domestic Violence Program in November. Ms. Dersham presented a flow chart of the agencies involved in domestic violence in Larimer County and noted that over 50% of all households in America experience some type of emotional, sexual, verbal, or physical abuse. Ms. Dersham described in detail her duties and activities as Domestic Violence Coordinator. Mr. Courtney stated that the request today is for the Board to authorize funding to continue the domestic violence program, as current funding ends June 30, 1993. Mr. Courtney presented a budget summary and noted that the Probation Department will provide in-kind contributions of supervision, administration, supplies, and operating expenses. The request is for salary and benefits only. Because of the restrictions of Amendment #1, the Board cannot commit to long-term continuation of this program. The Board suggested that Human Development be contacted to ascertain the possibility of obtaining CDBG Funding for this program. M O T I O N Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board approve the continuation of the Domestic Violence Program until the end of the year, at the current funding level; funds to be derived from Unanticipated Carry-Over. Motion carried 2 - 1; Chairman Hotchkiss opposing. Commissioner Duvall expressed appreciation to Ms. Dersham for her work and commended her for using volunteers as much as possible. The meeting adjourned at 10:45 a.m. TUESDAY, MARCH 30, 1993 EXTENSION QUARTERLY UPDATE (#190) The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Laurel Kubin, Director of Extension. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were Tom Brown, 4-H Youth Coordinator; and Bob Scott, Advisory Committee Member. Recording Clerk, S. Graves. Ms. Kubin thanked the Board for their support in contacting the State Legislators requesting minimal cuts be made in Extension. As a result, Ms. Kubin noted that the percentage cut to extension as an agency is not as bad as the percentage cut to other agencies; the Urban Programs will receive a $136,500 cut, and 4-H will not be cut. The cuts will be in horticulture, agriculture, family consumer education, etc. Mr. Brown provided an update on the 4-H Programs in Larimer County and reported on the annual 4-H Carnival held last Saturday. The Carnival was attended by 12,000 persons; $23,000 was raised and another $10,000 is anticipataed. This money is used to finance 4-H Programs for scholarships, award trips, leadership development, and to provide educational experiences for members and leaders. Ten college scholarships are given each year. There are 1,535 4-H members in Larimer County, ages 5 to 18, involved in over 3,000 projects. Mr. Brown stated that the strength of the program is their volunteers. Mr. Brown described several new programs: Shooting Sports, which teaches safety; "Dare To Be You", which develops self-esteem; Day in Denver for younger 4-H members to visit the Capitol, Mint, Museum of Natural History, and possibly meet the Governor; and a Meats Education Program. This summer, two 2-day Day Camps will be held and over one-half of the participants will be non 4-H members. Mr. Brown noted that 4-H has an Exchange Program and members must earn their money thru Community Service Projects. This year the Exchange members will be visiting North Carolina and Washington, D.C. In response to questions from the Board, Mr. Brown stated that each Fall a 4-H flyer is distributed to every child in 3rd thru 6th grade to acquaint them with 4-H; Commissioner Disney asked if it would be possible to incorporate a program educating the youth how County Government works and the duties of a County Commissioner; and Commissioner Duvall wondered if a program about horse psychology could be introduced.

Mr. Lloyd stated that fifty percent of Larimer County's 1,689,000 acres is publicly owned, and the Districts are: Estes-Poudre, and Red Feather.
