Mr. Barnett noted that concerns have been raised by the Estes Valley Land Trust regarding acceptance of the conservation easement near the Honda School with the inclusion of the ten acres split off of a former landfill. The Estes Valley Land Trust offered several options for the Board to consider regarding this matter. Mr. Barnett stated that the easement has not been recorded and a decision needs to be made. Ms. Haag recommended leaving the ten acres out of the conservation easement, as it is never going to be a buildable site. The Board directed Mr. Barnett to inform the Estes Valley Land Trust to proceed with closure of this matter in the way they prefer.

The meeting recessed at 9:30 a.m.

MEETING WITH KEITH OLSON

(#335 & #337)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 1:30 p.m. in regular session with Dr. Keith Olson, Director of Mental Health Department. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioner Duvall was present. Commissioner Disney was attending the Upper Front Range Regional Planning Commission Meeting in Greeley, CO. Also present were four neighbors of 218 Whitcomb; George Hass, County Attorney; Bob Keister, Budget Manager; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

DISCUSSION OF 218 WHITCOMB RESIDENTS: The neighbors of 218 Whitcomb apprised the Board of their concerns regarding the lack of supervision of the mental health residents living in the Whitcomb Street Halfway House. Instances were described and the number of police calls to the home were charted in comparison to the number of police calls to adjacent blocks. The neighbors noted that the complexion of the neighborhood has changed--it is no longer composed of college students and rental properties--it is comprised of young families and they are concerned for the safety of their children. Dr. Olson reviewed the history of the home and stated that drinking and drugs are not allowed and violators of the rules have been ousted from the home. Dr. Olson stated that the residents are one step from being released and 24-hour supervision of all the residents is impossible.

After much back and forth discussion between the neighbors and Dr. Olson, Commissioner Duvall suggested a neighborhood meeting be scheduled with a facilitator to moderate the discussion. The Board directed Dr. Olson to work with Julie Fisher and schedule a meeting and also include the Mental Health Advisory Board in the discussion.

DISCUSSION REGARDING PARTICIPATION IN COLORADO BEHAVIORAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEMS, INC: Dr. Olson requested direction from the Board regarding Larimer County's participation in Colorado Behavioral Health Care Systems, Inc. Dr. Olson stated that this organization is a proposed non-profit corporation which will act as the main force of the Medicaid capitation program and all the other mental health centers in Colorado have voted to join. A meeting of all the mental health centers in Colorado will be held in Denver on September 30 and a decision whether or not Larimer County will join needs to be made at that time. Dr. Olson noted that if Larimer County participates, resources will be developed to serve all the Medicaid population in Larimer County (12,000 persons) for which we would be paid $50 per month per capita, for a total of $5,000,000, and services in Larimer County can be expanded.

 

The Mental Health Advisory Board and Dr. Olson recommend that the Larimer County Mental Health Center be designated as a Enterprise Fund and join the Colorado Behavioral Health Care Systems, Inc. It was discussed whether or not this can be done under the terms of Amendment #1. Mr. Haas will review the proposal and financial information and report back to the Board. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was for the Larimer County Mental Health Center to join the Colorado Behavioral Health Care Systems, Inc. in principle, but the County Attorney must ensure that the necessary protective clauses are in the contract, and become an Enterprise Fund.

The Board adjourned at 3:05 p.m.

PUBLIC WORKS STANDING MEETING

(#338)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Rex Smith, Director of Public Works. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were Bill Heiden, Director Road and Bridge Department, and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. LIVERMORE WELL: Mr. Smith reminded the Board that a few years ago, Larimer County agreed to provide non-potable water to the Forks Cafe and several other area residents in the Livermore Area. All the recipients of the water, except the Forks, signed an agreement and pay a monthly fee for the water. The Forks is charged $45 per month and they are $450 in arrears. Mr. Smith requested direction from the Board whether to shut the water off to the Forks or continue sending them the agreement for signing and the bill. Commissioner Disney suggested that in addition to sending the agreement and bill, a letter from the Board of County Commissioners be included indicating they have been apprised of the situation and will monitor the situation. The Board directed Mr. Gordon to prepare a letter to the Forks Cafe for the Chairman's signature.

2. ROAD AND BRIDGE SHORT RANGE HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM (CONTINUED): Mr. Smith submitted a list of the eight major factors considered when developing the short-range highway improvement program; which are: 1) Traffic volumes; 2) Physical condition of existing roads/bridges; 3) Safety considerations; 4) Input from public and other agencies; 5) Input from Commissioners; 6) Maintenance costs; 7) Sufficiency ratings on bridges; 8) Continuity of major travel routes. Mr. Smith reviewed the road projects scheduled for 1996 and 1997, but stated that by 1997 inflation may deflate construction monies and some projects may have to be eliminated. Mr. Smith also noted that applications for state funding for four bridges are made each year and usually State and Federal Funds are received for two bridge replacements. Mr. Smith informed the Board that the decisions they make today will determine what will happen in 15 to 20 years and stated he is open to any suggestions from the Board for changes in procedure.

Commissioner Disney suggested a day or more be set aside for the Board to site visit these scheduled road projects and Commissioner Duvall requested the Director of Planning be included in earlier discussions and planning of road projects because of implications on land-use planning. Mr. Smith stated that within the next two months, the road and bridge short range highway improvement program will be reviewed and revised and the Planning Director will be included. Commissioner Duvall also would like to have the long range transportation plan include the possibility of mass transit. Mr. Heiden will prepare a map for Commissioner Duvall of the County roads, indicating which roads are gravel, paved, or have magnesium chloride.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board go into Executive Session to discuss a personnel matter.

The meeting recessed at 11:50 a.m.

OFFICE ON AGING ALLOCATION MEETING

(#339)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 3:00 p.m. in general session with Rena Mackrill, Director of Human Development. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Duvall and Disney were present. Also present were: Bill Gordon, County Administrator; Dr. Becker, Chairman of the Office on Aging Advisory Council; and, Shelly McGraw, Director of the Office on Aging. Recording Clerk, D. Lord.

In response to a question from Commissioner Disney, Ms. McGraw reviewed the Older American Act funding and allocation process. She explained that Congress allocates funds to the Administration on Aging and, in turn, the AoA allocates the funding to the 50 states and territories based on population. The funding for Colorado is administered by the Department of Human Services and, in turn, the DHS allocates the funds to either single county or multi-county Planning and Service Areas(PSA). Each PSA must designate an Area Agency on Aging to develop a four-year service plan and allocate the funds to community programs and agencies to provide services for older residents. The Office on Aging in Larimer County was established by the County Board of Commissioners to be the AAA. The Office on Aging Advisory Council is appointed by the Commissioners and the majority of members must be at least 60 years of age or older.

The Titles under the Older American Act are: Title B - Social Programs, such as Information and Referral, I & R, Counseling, Handyman, etc.; Title C (which includes C-1 for congregate meals and C-2 for home delivered meals) - Nutrition; Title D - In-home care; Title F- Health Promotion and Prevention Programs (new this year); and, Title G - Elder Abuse funding. Ms. McGraw explained that the only Titles which allow transfer of funds are Titles B to C, or C to B. Funds are provided for administration of the programs. The County provides matching funds for the money.

Ms. McGraw explained that the allocation plan being submitted for approval was being recommended by the Office on Aging Advisory Council after the following actions were completed: conducting site visits to all contractors to assess compliance with regulations and contract provisions; reviewing proposals for renewal of grant funds from each provider; completing an Information and Referral Survey and sending it to 63 county service providers (40 of whom responded); and, correlating the projected allocations to the area plan.

Ms. McGraw reported that there were four proposals which were not recommended for funding in 1994. The Choice-Housing Counseling proposal was rejected because the agency is changing administration and has applied for 501-3(c) approval, but is not a viable entity at this time; the Helpline organization was not refunded as the grant for 1993 was to develop a data base, which has been completed; the funding for Care-A-Van had not been renewed pending the outcome of the City of Fort Collins RFP for transportation; and, finally, no proposal for Title F funding was selected. She explained that, since Title F was developed to fund new programs, the recommendation is to wait and prepare an RFP to seek proposals for mobile clinics or other programs to promote health access. The other programs, with slight changes in funding levels for some, are being recommended for approval.

The major change, according to Ms. McGraw, was the recommendation to move the Information and Referral services into the Office on Aging. No viable contractor was identified to provide the service, and since the Office on Aging is mandated by federal law to ensure that I&R services are available, the recommendation of the Advisory Council was to bring the services in-house. Commissioner Duvall expressed her concern regarding the move of the I&R program from the community into County government. She stated that she believed that the goal of the County was to develop the county community services, not expand governmental services. Ms. McGraw responded that every effort had been made to identify a community agency capable of providing these services, but that the Counseling Committee of the Advisory Council was unable to find a viable alternative to the recommendation. Ms. Mackrill said she was not supportive of moving the I&R services to the County either, but the Office on Aging was facing an October 1 deadline for submission of the area plan allocations to the state and no alternative had been found to date.

MOTION

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board approve the recommended allocation plan of the Office on Aging with the understanding that there will be additional effort made to identify a resource in the community to provide Information and Referral Services.

The Motion carried 2 - 0.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:20 p.m.

Commissioner Disney is attending the Front Range Budget Conference. Also present were: Rena Mackrill, Director of Human Development; Carol Gillespie, Director Community Development; Lani Van Eck, Housing Development Specialist; Patty Arnett, Health Department Business Manager; John Barnett, Director of Planning; and Dick Anderson, Facilities Manager.

1. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF: A) OWNER-OCCUPIED HOUSING REHABILITATION PROGRAM AND B) LONG-RANGE AFFORDABLE HOUSING PLANNING PLAN:

A) The Application for the Owner-Occupied Housing Rehabilitation Program was submitted to the Board for review. Ms. Gillespie noted that the application is complete except for the inter-governmental agreement with Jackson County, permitting rehabilitation for one house in that County. An information sheet regarding the housing rehabilitation program was provided to Chairman Hotchkiss and he was requested to call the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners of Jackson County and relay the information. Chairman Hotchkiss requested Ms. Gillespie to also send copies of the application and the information sheet to the Jackson County Chairman.

 

B) The Comprehensive Affordable Housing Plan was described to the Board as a broad-based affordable housing consortium in Larimer County, with membership from public and private sectors working together to create an ongoing system of data collection and disbursement. This process will provide: 1) An ongoing assessment of the need for housing assistance among low and moderate income residents and reliable statistical data about the population in need; B) A current assessment of available resources to meet the needs of Larimer County residents for affordable, decent, safe, and sanitary housing; and 3) A guide for program development and implementation which will allow each organization to select target areas for action and to coordinate its efforts with others to multiply the impact of each activity. Ms. Van Eck stated this Plan is an updating collection system--it is not another survey. Commissioner Duvall asked how all this information will help solve the problem. Ms. Mackrill stated this system will allow any player access to information and will become a marketable tool in the future--it is a self-sustaining program. Initially the request is for $8,000 from the County. Discussion followed. Commissioner Duvall requested more information in order to see how this Plan fits into the bigger picture, find out what kind of community support is out there, and to look at the overall budget.

LEGAL MATTERS

County Attorney George Hass, entered the room for Legal Matters.

Mr. Hass reported on the implications of Amendment #1 regarding refund on property taxes. Previously, when an abatement was allowed, the Treasurer gave credit for taxes due the next year. Under Amendment #1, this creates a problem because it decreases the base. Different ways for handling this dilemma were discussed. To recover the refund would require an election. It was emphasized that the mill levy cannot be raised, but revenue might possibly rise to the full CPI increase of 3.1% if abatements of previously paid taxes were considered an expenditure and revenues were treated on a gross basis. In working on the budget, Mr. Hass, Mr. Keister, and Mr. Gordon will interpret Amendment #1 in the best interest of the tax entities.

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board go into Executive Session to discuss a personnel matter.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The meeting adjourned at 11:15 a.m.
