ADMINISTRATIVE MATTERS

(#332 & #323)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:00 a.m. in regular session with Frank Lancaster, County Administrator. Chair Disney presided; Commissioners Clarke and Duvall were present. Also present were: Deputy Tom Perkins and Lt. David Cox of the Sheriff's Department; John Barnett, Director of Planning; Rob Helmick, Planner II; Moby Wile, Member of the Northern Colorado Land Use Symposium Group; Dr. Keith Olson, Director Mental Health; Joan Duchene, Supervisor Commissioner's Office; Jim Stokes, Director Information Management; Dr. Adrienne LeBailly, Director Health Department; Donna Hart, Assistant to the County Manager; and Neil Gluckman, Assistant County Manager. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. OPEN PUBLIC COMMENT: Dr. Charles Collopy requested assistance from the Board regarding maintenance and upgrading of County Road 73C (Red Feather Road). Commissioner Clarke stated that he does not think this road has been treated this year because of all the rain and noted that the Road and Bridge Department is several weeks behind schedule; the Board indicated to Dr. Collopy that they will discuss the road conditions with Mr. Heiden to see what can be done to improve them Len O'Rourke asked several questions about the 35-acre issue and requested clarification from the Board about what they are trying to correct. Commissioner Duvall described the law as it pertains to 35-acres noting that currently land can be divided into 35-acre parcels without county approval or review, but then all the government entities must provide services to those parcels (roads, schools, law enforcement, etc.); the 35-acre law, as it now stands, does not contribute to orderly growth and creates a land management problem. Discussion continued and Mr. O'Rourke urged the Board to try and solve the issue so that residential property doesn't have to support the tax base. Paul Powell provided a brief overview of several areas of concern which currently exist at the landfill and offered suggestions on how to remedy the problems; he noted he has written to Ms. Henderson, Director of Natural Resources, offering his suggestions. Mr. Lancaster informed Mr. Powell that they will discuss the possible solutions with Ms. Henderson and report back to the Board.

2. NATIONAL NIGHT OUT 1995 PROCLAMATION: Mr. Perkins presented National Night Out badges and caps to the Board and noted this is the 12th Annual National Night Out and Larimer County's 4th year to join forces with thousands of other communities across the country in promoting cooperative, police-community crime and drug prevention efforts. Mr. Perkins stated they are having a kick-off to the National Night Out on August 1, 1995 between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. in the neighborhoods and he invited the Board to accompany the deputies to several of the sites. Mr. Perkins stated that on July 26, 1995, there will be a Kick Off to the National Night Out at the Alpine Autobahn Go-Kart Raceway and the owner has agreed to donate $1 toward the program for every ticket sold.

M O T I O N

3. NORTHERN LARIMER COUNTY LAND USE SYMPOSIUM RECOMMENDATIONS: Mr. Barnett and Mr. Wile presented the 35-Acre Symposium Planning Team Evaluation and Recommendations to the Board, reviewed the events of the Symposium, and thanked the Board for attending. Mr. Wile stated that he feels, if there is money, time and commitment, that future structured, facilitated atmosphere meetings should be held because they generate education for the public. Mr. Barnett outlined the follow-up steps of the recommendations and stated he would like to have the Symposium Planning Team reconvene and select 8 people to form a Task Force to develop policy; those 8 people need to be able to articulate their point of view, have diverse perspectives and be knowledgeable of the issues, be willing to work as a group, have the ability to listen, and be role models for how this process can work in the future. Mr. Barnett stated that the Planning Team would have Staff support and County resources to assist them and he outlined the following timeline: 1) Meet and organize in mid-August to develop the policy and develop realistic and practical implementation strategies; 2) Hold 3 community forums in early November; 3) Produce a hearing draft by December 15, 1995; 4) Planning Commission Hearing on January 17, 1996; and 5) Board of County Commissioners Hearing in February, 1996.

WORLD WIDE WEB SITE FOR LARIMER COUNTY: Subsequent to discussion with Steve Moore regarding the amount of staff time which would be required to provide Internet access to Larimer County information via a Larimer County World Wide Web (WWW) home page site, Mr. Lancaster reported that staff time required would be minimal. Mr. Moore estimated that the cost to setup information on the home page would consist of about one hour initial for each department preparing new information, one half hour for departments posting existing files, and department maintenance would vary, based on the complexity and amount of information posted, but should not exceed 30 to 60 minutes each time information is changed; routinely updated information, such as agendas and minutes can be automated, thereby requiring no staff time

WAIVER OF PERSONNEL POLICY FOR HEALTH DEPARTMENT: Dr. LeBailly informed the Board that the interview process has been completed for hiring a half-time Environmental Health Specialist II and Jean Ross has been selected for the position; however, Ms. Ross has been a temporary employee for three years and is currently working at Step H in salary, which is more than current hiring policy allows. Dr. LeBailly requested Board approval for an exception to normal hiring practices to hire Ms. Ross at her current salary to avoid taking a pay cut and freezing her salary at her current rate until the hiring rate of Step E catches up to her current salary.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board allow an exception to the normal hiring practices and approve a waiver of the Larimer County Personnel Policy, Section 504, as requested by Dr. LeBailly.

10. WORKSESSION:

-- An update regarding the tight scheduling for the Board of Equalization Hearings was provided for the Board and they were requested to approve scheduling hearings to start at 8:00 a.m. for the last week of hearings; they concurred with the request.

-- Mr. Lancaster requested direction from the Board regarding the provision of additional space for CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate); there was discussion of possibly providing a modular for CASA, but the Board does not favor renting space away from the Courthouse. Commissioner Duvall stated she will have lunch with Judge Sullivan and discuss this matter further.

-- Mr. Lancaster requested the Board's input regarding the public comment session; as the time period ran over today by 30 minutes, the Board decided they will have to set a time limit for each speaker and also have a sign-up sheet in an attempt to stay on schedule.

11. INVITATIONS: Ms. Hart reviewed the pending invitations with the Board and they indicated to her which events they will be able to attend.

12. COMMISSIONER REPORTS:

-- Commissioner Clarke reported on the Northern Colorado Mayor/City Manager Meeting he recently attended and their desire to hire a staff person to work on the Regional Plan; however, he noted that Weld County does not want to participate. Chair Disney suggested discussing this possibility with the Director of Planning John Barnett to determine if existing staff could work on the Plan.

At this time, Commissioner Duvall left the meeting to attend a Rotary Luncheon.
