Legal Matters continued in Open Session with discussion of the following subjects:

1) Grasslands Subdivision First Filing Building Permit Hold Release: Mr. Burns reminded the Board that on May 2, 1994 the Board placed a temporary building permit hold on the Grasslands Subdivision First Filing until certain conditions were met. Mr. Burns noted that the subdrain system is now complete and the Corps of Engineers has issued a permit for the completion of the wetland work; therefore, the Board is requested to lift the building permit hold on the First Filing at this time.





M O T I O N

Commissioner Hotchkiss moved that the Board approve the request to lift the temporary building permit hold placed on the Grasslands Subdivision First Filing on May 2, 1994.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

2) Rex/Alvin Miller and Buddy Noel Case: Discussion was held regarding an attempt to subdivide the property on the west side of Overland Trail and north of the Stadium in the UGA. The questions which have arisen are what density is allowed, is the property going to be annexed into the City, etc. Mr. Hass and Ms. Haag will review the situation and determine if and how the property can be subdivided and by which entity.

3) Discussion of Video Cameras at Committee Meetings: Chair Duvall noted that the presence of private video cameras at Committee Meetings inhibits free discussion and input from certain members and she wondered if there was a policy prohibiting same. Discussion followed; Mr. Hass stated that the Open Meeting Law extends to Committees and Boards; however, it was noted that meetings, such as Concept Technical Review, are not subject to the Sunshine Law. Commissioner Hotchkiss noted that the Chair of the Committee has the right to run the meeting in an orderly, non-threatening manner and if the cameras are creating an interference with the meeting, the Chair can prohibit video cameras. Commissioner Disney suggested that a policy be drafted prohibiting private video cameras from Committees and Boards, as the existence of same interferes with the free exchange of information; however, if a request is made twenty-four hours prior to the meeting, provisions will be made to have the meeting taped. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was that a policy regarding this matter needs to be drafted and requested assistance from Legal Staff in drafting this policy.

4) Approval of Intergovernmental Agreement: The Amended Intergovernmental Agreement between Larimer County and the Town of Berthoud was presented for the Chair's signature; this Intergovernmental Agreement was previously approved by the Board on April 25, 1994 (#A94-72).

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board authorize the Chair to sign the Amended Intergovernmental Agreement between Larimer County and the Town of Berthoud, previously approved on April 25, 1994.

Motion carried 3 - 0.
