The Board discussed the courthouse exterior masonry repair project for the south side of the building.  The Auditor read a letter from Schoonover Tuckpointing regarding withdrawing their bid.  Randy Janssen, Janssen Waterproofing, Inc. resubmitted his bid to allow for an over count on the number of bricks for the project area.  Discussion included details of the project, concerns of the rubber roof membrane, continuing the project around the southeast side of the building, and starting work before the end of the fiscal year.  Staudt/Enabnit moved to accept the bid of $122,073 from Janssen Waterproofing, Inc for the courthouse brick replacement project as well as continuing the project around the southeast corner for an additional cost of $12 per brick.  Motion carried 3-0. 

Doug Schroeder, Conservation Director, provided the Board with some bids from Swartzrock’s Implement for a trailer that he intends to purchase for hauling mowers, etc.  Schroeder will check prices with other companies.  The Conservation Board has approved the purchase at Schroeder’s discretion.  Schroeder will likely sell the old trailer at a later date. 

Staudt/Enabnit moved to set a public hearing on Thursday, July 1 at 8:30 a.m. regarding Jim and Jane Frisbie’s application to rezone 3.67 acres from Ag to R-1.  Motion carried 3-0. 

The Auditor shared information from a meeting last week with Mike Duffield, EMC Insurance Companies Risk Improvement Manager.  Due to excessive claims and increased costs, EMC would like the county to identify a worker compensation physician, develop a return-to-work procedure, establish a risk management committee to review all claims, identify and insure training needs are met, establish a fleet safety program, and update job descriptions to include physical limitations. Duffield stressed the importance of Board support of these issues.  Enabnit/Staudt moved to have the Auditor pull together members for a Risk Management Committee.  Motion carried 3-0.

The Auditor provided the Board with a Robert Hopson’s proposed GASB 45 actuarial report.  This report is necessary by June 30, 2009 to identify other post employment benefits (OPEB).  Pending any changes needed after reviewing the report, the Board will accept the report at the next regular board meeting.  The Auditor also provided the Board with sample Intangible Asset Policies.  Per GASB 51, the Board will need to have a policy in place by June 30, 2010.  The Auditor will proceed drafting a policy for the county for review and action at the next regular meeting.

The Board noted that $1,797.93 in fees was collected by the Clerk of Court for the month of May. 

Future agenda items:  have the County Attorney come up to next workshop meeting to discuss conflict of interest cases. 

A motion was made by Supervisor Enabnit and seconded by Supervisor Staudt to adjourn.  Motion carried 3-0.
