The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. in regular session with John Barnett, Director of Planning. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Al Kadera, Subdivision Administrator; Rex Burns, Flood Plain Administrator; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. AMENDED FOSSIL CREEK MEADOWS WARRANTY COLLATERAL

(#S-78-86): 1-6-69; EAST OF HIGHWAY 287, 1/2 MILE SOUTH OF

HARMONY ROAD; 14.526 ACRES; 60 LOTS; R-RESIDENTIAL

ZONING (11-08-93)

This is a request for a release of collateral. Mr. Kadera provided the background on this item and noted that the Homeowners Association has indicated some concerns about drainage and an icy condition on a road. Staff Findings include: 1) The Amended Plat of Fossil Creek Meadows was approved in 1986. The improvements were completed and released in 1991. The warranty period has expired and the developer has requested that the warranty collateral be released; 2) The Public Works Department has inspected the drainage and street improvements and recommends release of the warranty collateral; 3) The Fossil Creek Meadows Homeowners Association requested a time extension to allow for further consultation concerning the improvements; 4) The developer has fulfilled his obligations under the provisions of the Larimer County Collateral Policy, therefore, the warranty collateral should be released.

Staff Recommendation is for approval of the release of warranty collateral for the Amended Plat of Envelopes H through P, Fossil Creek Meadows First Filing. The collateral to be released is a Certificate of Deposit in the amount of $1,404, plus interest, at Key Bank.

The President of the Homeowners Association requested the Board's consideration of three items: 1) A maintenance problem created by water and debris collecting and freezing in the winter at the Fossil Creek Drive intersection; 2) A difficult maintenance situation created by a high berm; 3) Liability responsibility for an erosion problem which will occur in the future.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board table the Amended Fossil Creek Meadows, 1st Filing Warranty Collateral Release until December 13, 1993 to allow time for the parties involved to resolve some of the issues and concerns.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

Mr. Barnett stated that the following is a consent item and will not be discussed in detail unless specifically requested by the Board or members of the audience.

2. MANOR RIDGE ESTATES RESIDENTIAL P.U.D. 2ND FILING (#S-106-90):

S 1/2 NW, 1/4, 24-6-69; EAST SIDE OF HIGHWAY 287 ON THE

SOUTH SIDE OF COLLAND CENTER; 114.58 ACRES; 17 LOTS

(PHASE II); FA-FARMING/FA-1 FARMING ZONING (11-08-93)

This is a request for release of warranty collateral. Mr. Kadera reviewed the project. Staff Findings are: 1) The improvements in Manor Ridge Estates Second Filing have been inspected by the Public Works Department and were found to be in good condition, with the exception of three driveway culverts; 2) The developer was not responsible for the installation of these culverts, but improperly installed or damaged culverts created serious drainage problems; 3) The developer has met all of his obligations under the Subdivision Improvements Agreement and the warranty collateral provisions of the Collateral Policy; 4) The County should not accept responsibility for maintenance of the streets or drainage facilities in Manor Ridge Estates Second Filing until the drainage system is functioning properly.

Staff Recommendation is for approval of the release of the warranty collateral for Manor Ridge Estates Second Filing with the express provision that the County shall not assume any maintenance responsibility until the drainage system is functioning properly. Any damaged or improperly installed culverts shall be replaced or repaired to the satisfaction of the Public Works Department.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt the Staff Findings and Staff Recommendation and approve the release of warranty collateral for Manor Ridge Estates Residential P.U.D. 2nd Filing (#S-106-90).

Motion carried 3 - 0.

3. MANOR RIDGE OPEN SPACE MAINTENANCE DISCUSSION: Mr. Kadera noted that this item will not be discussed this morning.

4. BONNELL WEST PLANNED UNIT DEVELOPMENT -THIRD FILING

FINAL PLAT (#93-MS0312): (11-08-93)

Mr. Kadera requested Board approval and the Chairman's signature on a Final Plat for the Bonnell West P.U.D. Third Filing. Mr. Kadera noted that a mortgage deed on some undeveloped property has been used for the first two filings, and the applicant is requesting the same for the third filing. As the County's collateral policy has been amended to remove property as an acceptable form of collateral, Board approval is required to waive this condition and accept the mortgage deed as collateral. Mr. Crowder, applicant, assured the Board that the undeveloped land is worth much more than the amount of collateral. Mr. Kadera noted that Staff has no objection to acceptance of the mortgage deed as collateral as it has worked well in the past. Commissioner Duvall noted she prefers a Letter of Credit be required as collateral. .

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board allow an exception to the collateral policy and approve the Final Plat for Bonnell West P.U.D. Third Filing (#93-MS0312), and authorize the Chairman to sign same.

Motion carried 2 - 1; Commissioner Duvall dissenting.

5. LAWSON MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT (#93-S0280): (11-08-93)

On June 7, 1993, the Board gave approval for Mr. Lawson to proceed with application for a Minor Residential Development. The following proposed conditions of approval were submitted by Staff today and Board approval was requested for same: 1) The final plat of the Lawson MRD shall be completed in strict conformance with the minimum requirements of the Larimer County Subdivision Resolution; 2) Wildfire mitigation recommendations of the State Forester and the County Sheriff shall be addressed by the applicant before the Final Plat is recorded. The work may be finished or the applicant may execute a Subdivision Improvements Agreement and provide appropriate collateral to ensure that the work will be completed; 3) The applicant shall consult with the County Sheriff's Department to determine the appropriate location, size and configuration of the water storage facility for fire protection. The installation may be completed before the Final Plat is recorded or the cost of completing the installation may be included in the SIA and collateralized with the other improvements; 4) The applicant shall consult with the County Engineer and the County Sheriff to determine if any on-site road improvements will be necessary to insure adequate emergency access to these lots. If widening or other work is needed, it may be completed before the Final Plat is recorded or included in the SIA; 5) Before the Final Plat is recorded, the applicant shall pay the development fees that would be applied to a vacant lot created by MRD. These fees are $8 for schools, $315 for parks, and $684 for off-site street improvements; 6) The Final Plat shall identify the source of water for each lot, as requested by the State Engineer; 7) Upon recording the Final Plat, the applicant shall obtain the appropriate permits from the Building Department and the Health Department for the improvements previously completed on this site; 8) The applicant shall complete at least one radon test in each dwelling on this site and provide a copy of the results to the Planning Division before the Final Plat is recorded.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the Proposed Conditions of Approval for the Lawson Minor Residential Development, as requested by Staff.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

6. BOXELDER CREEK FLOODPLAIN ZONE (93-#ZN0329): (11-08-93)

Mr. Burns described the area encompassed in the Boxelder Creek Floodplain Zone and noted that the purpose of the public hearing today is for the Board to consider the adoption of a flood fringe zoning district. Mr. Burns discussed the hydrology of the creek and noted that flood studies and level surveys have been conducted and he agrees with the City, State, and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that the results of the survey are accurate. Mr. Burns noted that FEMA is requiring adoption of this flood fringe zoning district by the County by November 17, 1993 in order for the County to continue participation in the flood insurance program. Mr. Burns noted that some homeowners in the area have expressed concern that adoption of the flood zoning will have an adverse effect on land values, but the reverse is true.

The President of the North East Business Association (NEBA) stated that failure to adopt the floodfringe zone can have some detrimental economic effects on the whole area, but offered some suggestions for the future which will reduce the threat of flooding in the area; such as culverts under Highway 14, construction of a berm between CR 52 & CR 54, etc. Kathy Koithan and Ursula Tagliamonti, area property owners and residents, expressed understanding that this flood zoning needs to be approved today, but requested the County continue working on this matter to correct problems for the future. Mr. Lane, Soil Conservation District representative, noted that the District also plans to designate this area as a state floodplain area at their Board Meeting in January, if the Board approves the floodplain zone today.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the Boxelder Creek Floodplain Zone.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

The meeting adjourned at 10:15 a.m.

MEETING REGARDING IMPROVEMENT DISTRICTS

(#378)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Rex Burns, Special Improvement District Administrator, and Diane Martell, Staff Services Manager. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Bob Grewell, Director of Finance, and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Mr. Burns recapped the recent General Improvement District election results, and noted that the Local Improvement District Referendums did not pass. Therefore, due to the success of the GID elections, this avenue of funding for districts will be pursued in the future. Ms. Martell stated that she would like to diligently work on amendment of the State Statutes so only the residents in the district would vote on their issues, instead of the whole County. Ms. Martell described the difference between an LID and GID, noting that since a LID is not a separate legal entity, the definition of district is still the County; however, the GID Statute contains an exclusion piece that states that if it is mining, agriculture, etc. property, and the value is assessed more than $25,000, it can be excluded from the district. If the GID Statute can be amended to allow special assessment, a mill levy can be assessed. After further discussion of other options, it was concluded that the best route to take would be to work with the bond attorney, local legislators, and CCI to draft legislation to amend the State Statutes. Ms. Martell agreed to work on this and Commissioner Disney offered his help. In addition, Chairman Hotchkiss suggested a fund be set up in 1994 to set aside seed money for street repair; this matter will be discussed with Rex Smith, Director of Public Works.

The meeting recessed at 10:05 a.m.

MEETING REGARDING AIR QUALITY

(#379)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:00 p.m. in regular session with Dr. Adrienne LeBailly, Director Health Department, and Dr. Larry Johnston, Director Environmental Health. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Steve Arnold, State Health Department; Jerry Blehm, Environmental Health, Kate Curran and Debbie Morgan, LaPorte Air Quality Task Force; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. Dr. Johnston reviewed and commented on the status of the recommendations of the Dehydrator Task Force, which were as follows: 1) Examine the USEPA Report on alfalfa dehydrators and determine if it contains any useful information (Yes, the document is still useful to control pollution and emissions); 2) Implementation of a community survey and the installation of a weather station with the assistance of an Agri-Business Grant (Six agencies were contacted for funding, but no one was interested; five alternatives were suggested and direction was requested from the Board); 3) Initiation of an air quality health study for the LaPorte area -- The air emission inventory has been completed and they are waiting for a status report from the State. Mr. Arnold reported that there were some technical problems with the spread sheet and complete assessment will require an updating of some of the emission factors. Mr. Arnold described how the survey is conducted and the chemical analysis was discussed. Dr. Johnston suggested completing the emissions inventory, obtain the PM-10 data, and then have the LaPorte Area Air Quality Committee, industry and citizens meet, and come back to the Board with recommendations, and at that time address the chemical analysis. Discussion of the PM-10 monitor ensued; the monitor was scheduled to be removed, as the State needs it in other areas. Mr. Arnold indicated his frustration that only the State has contributed to this study ($16,000) and they are out of funds. Ms. Curran and Ms. Morgan expressed their concern about removal of the monitor, as the physical presence of the monitor has made a major contribution in lowering the particulate pollution in LaPorte; the citizens trust the monitor and it should be a permanent installation. The costs of a monitor were discussed; the structure itself is not the major expense, it is the filters and analysis that are costly. After further discussion, Mr. Arnold agreed to leave the monitor in place thru the winter and complete the emissions inventory; 4) Reinstatement of Regulation #5 as it is currently written at the State - Dr. Johnston's recommendation was to not reinstate Regulation #5. With regard to whether or not the Board can enforce air quality control locally, Commissioner Duvall asked about the Attorney General's opinion in Section 25-7-128 of the Colorado Revised Statutes which states: "...If local governments submit adopted plans and regulations, as revisions to the State Implementation Plan, the local air pollution laws are fully enforceable by the Division...". Commissioner Duvall wondered if Larimer County created their own regulations, could the State enforce them? Mr. Arnold stated he did not know; Dr. Johnston will research this question; 5) The people of LaPorte be informed about the work of the committee - a one page report will be submitted to LAPAC and posted at the Post Office and other convenient locations.

2. Dr. LeBailly, representing the Health and Human Services Council, expressed concern with the external survey and offered three suggestions: 1) Make some minor changes; 2) Send it out the way it is; or 3) Write a new one. Mr. Gordon noted that to rewrite the survey would be very expensive; therefore, he recommended making minor changes and then send it out. After discussion, it was decided to put the external survey on hold until the Board has time to discuss it further.

3. Dr. LeBailly provided an update on HIV testing for sex offenders, noting they are still working on the problem and a solution is about to be reached.

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Duvall moved that the Board go into Executive Session for personnel evaluation.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1993

(#380)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Chuck Woodward, County Treasurer; Mike Burch, Risk Manager; Bob Grewell, Finance Director; and Steve Miller County Assessor. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. DISCUSSION REGARDING IN-HOUSE BONDING FOR WORKERS' COMPENSATION: Mr. Burch noted that in 1988 when the County began their self-insurance program for Worker's Compensation, we were required to post a minimum bond level of $300,000 and pay 15% or $4,500; as our costs for Worker's Compensation have risen, the self-insurance division has increased our bond level to $1,450,000, which cost us over $17,000 last year. Mr. Burch stated that in lieu of buying a bond from an insurance company, we could post our own bond; the State would have control over it. Instead of spending an estimated $20,000 next year for a bond, we could put this money aside, retaining the money, plus interest. Mr. Burch requested permission from the Board to pursue this matter further, obtain approval from the County Attorney, and return to the Board for approval. Mr. Woodward noted that the City of Fort Collins has in-house bonding for Workers' Compensation and recommended the County seriously consider doing the same. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to direct Mr. Burch to gather more information on in-house bonding for Worker's Compensation, have it reviewed by the County Attorney, and return to the Board with more information.

2. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL OF AN EXCEPTION TO POLICY TO ALLOW FOR THE TRANSFER OF SICK LEAVE: Mr. Miller requested Board approval of an exception to policy to allow the transfer of sick leave for one of his employees in a life threatening situation. The employee has used her sick leave and employees in the Assessor's Office have offered 264 hours for her. Mr. Gordon recommended the Board authorize the transfer of up to 300 hours of sick leave and make an additional request if more is needed. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to approve an exception to policy and allow the transfer of up to 300 hours of sick leave to an employee in the Assessor's Office, as requested.

 

3. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL AND SIGNATURE ON THE "PERSONNEL AUTHORIZATION REQUEST" FOR 2 MENTAL HEALTH GRANT FUNDED POSITIONS - MENTAL HEALTH THERAPIST I: The Board was requested to approve and the Chairman sign a Personnel Authorization Request for two FTE's for the grant-funded Family Preservation Program; application for same was approved by the Board on October 26, 1993. Mr. Gordon noted that the positions are temporary, pending further funding and support through alternative fees, grants, and contracts.

PUBLIC HEARING ON INCREASE OF LANDFILL RATES

(#380 @ 2000)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 1:30 p.m. for a Public Hearing with Frank Lancaster, Director Natural Resources. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Rex Smith, Director of Public Works, and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

The purpose of today's Public Hearing is for the Board to consider the proposed increase for the 1994 Solid Waste Disposal Rates and to receive public testimony. Mr. Lancaster outlined the reasons for the request to increase the rates and presented and reviewed charts showing the percentage breakdown of Solid Waste Revenues, Expenditures, the 1993 rates and proposed 1994 rate increases, and the Front Range Landfill Rate Survey--which indicated that Larimer County's rates, with the increase, will still be about 60% on average of the neighboring landfill rates. Mr. Lancaster discussed other options for the Board to consider if the rate increase is not adopted; such as, eliminate free days, reduce service, reduce hours of operation, close transfer stations, eliminate programs (Hazardous Waste, etc.) Mr. Lancaster and Staff recommended that the Board approve the rate increase for the landfill as proposed. A Hewlett Packard representative addressed the Board and stated he has no problem with the rate increase, but requested that in the future, HP would appreciate knowing ahead of time so they can allow for the increase in their fiscal year budgeting. The City of Loveland reviewed the proposed rates, as required by Statutes, and no comments were received.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the increase of landfill rates, as proposed by Frank Lancaster and Staff.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

The meeting recessed at 2:00 p.m.

MEETING WITH STATE OFFICIALS REGARDING ENTERPRISE ZONES

(#382)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:30 p.m. in regular session with Evan Metcalf, Department of Local Affairs, and Jim Davis, Department of Revenue. Chairman Hotchkiss presided; Commissioners Disney and Duvall were present. Also present were: Neil Gluckman, Director Employment & Training Services; Lew Wymisner, Enterprise Zone Administrator; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

The purpose of today's meeting is for the Board and Mr. Wymisner to glean a better understanding of an Enterprise Zone Designation and the role and duties of the Enterprise Zone Administrator. Mr. Metcalf provided an overview of the Colorado Enterprise Zone Law which created a state income tax credit to encourage taxpayers to make contributions to assist enterprise zones to market their economic development plans and to promote child care in enterprise zones. Lengthy discussion followed regarding the requirements of the tax credit. Mr. Gluckman stated they are attempting to find ways to market the Enterprise Zone or build infrastructure that will improve the economic development in an area. Commissioner Duvall expressed her desire to offer this tax credit benefit to contributors to non-profit agencies that help the working poor and provide affordable housing, affordable health care, and answer other social needs which are a spin-off of economic development itself; she is concerned with the other part of the equation--the County's costs in taking care of the people when they come here. Commissioner Disney asked if areas, such as the Northeast Business Association, could receive help with street improvements; Mr. Metcalf noted they could make a contribution to the Enterprise Zone Administrator and receive financial assistance for street improvements. Chairman Hotchkiss asked if the EZ boundaries are set in cement, once designated; it was noted that there is a process to amend the boundaries. Commissioner Disney asked what happens when an area becomes totally rejuvenated, does it drop out of the Enterprise Zone--they had no answer to that question. Many other questions were raised and Chairman Hotchkiss stated that the Board will have even more when they have more information on Enterprise Zones. Mr. Gluckman noted that economic entities are asking for a contract for pass-thru funds; he requested permission to proceed with drafting an agreement for economic entities and will return to the Board for approval.

The meeting adjourned at 3:45 p.m.
