***Monday, September 09, 2013, Commissioners met in regular session with Chairman Dan Dinning, Commissioner LeAlan Pinkerton, Commissioner Walt Kirby, Clerk Glenda Poston, and Deputy Clerk Michelle Rohrwasser.

 

Commissioners gave the opening invocation and said the Pledge of Allegiance.

 

9:00 a.m., Road and Bridge Superintendent Jeff Gutshall joined the meeting to give the departmental report. Mr. Gutshall presented a written report. Mr. Gutshall said dust abatement has been completed on a section of Lions’ Den Road from Gold Bar Ranch to Deep Creek Loop. Mr. Gutshall discussed using Sam Fodge’s glycerol material for dust abatement so he will see how that works. Mr. Gutshall said he learned if you shoot the glycerol on to rock, it will stick to tires so you want to place it on hard packed rock. Mr. Gutshall said biodiesel has been “come and go” as far as availability and the price differential was only 13 cents on that particular day. The Road and Bridge Department is continuing with roadside mowing and doing sign work.

 

Mr. Gutshall said Road and Bridge hauled rock to Fairchild Road. The crusher has started at Moyie Pit #2 and the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) has already completed their inspection. Road and Bridge has been maintaining the detour route during the Deep Creek Bridge construction. Mr. Gutshall said he received a call from the Grove residence about drivers speeding on the detour route, but they were instructed to contact the Sheriffs’ Office because Road and Bridge cannot do anything about that.

 

Mr. Gutshall reviewed his department report to include: having three graders out today, hauling more rock to Fairfield Road and Kerr Lake Road tomorrow, finishing patching with the durapatcher, roadside mowing in Moravia where the paving project will be, and soon installing culverts on Pleasant Valley Loop and Cabinet Mountain Road, which will be done in coordination with Idaho Transportation Department.

 

Road and Bridge will be working in the Deer Creek area towards Perkins Lake so roads in that area will get brushed. Notice signs will be put up including posting notice on Eileen Road. Mr. Gutshall said he may not finish Eileen Road because he wants to get rock on Green Pasture Road from Mountain Meadows down to Brown Creek Road. Road and Bridge will continue to crush rock for the next month or two, according to Mr. Gutshall.

 

Chairman Dinning and Mr. Gutshall discussed a public hearing to be held on the 129,000 pound truck limit matter. Chairman Dinning said Roosevelt Road will play into this. Mr. Gutshall said those trucks won’t stay on Roosevelt Road as they would probably turn onto Split Rock Road as well. Mr. Gutshall said he doesn’t think either road is conducive to a vehicle that long. Chairman Dinning asked Mr. Gutshall to review the rules that are being drafted for this legislation.

 

Mr. Gutshall discussed the overbid amount for the Deep Creek Paving project. Taking some things out of the project had been mentioned by the engineer and Scott Ellsworth with the Local Highway Technical Assistance Council (LHTAC) wanted to know what Mr. Gutshall thought. Mr. Gutshall said mitigation needs to be done on Deep Creek Loop and funding needs to be taken care of before anything else.

 

The meeting with Mr. Gutshall ended at 9:30 a.m.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to adopt Resolution 2013-32. A resolution increasing the Road and Bridge budget due to receipt of unanticipated funds. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously. Resolution 2013-32 reads as follows:

9:30 a.m., Courthouse Maintenance Jerry Kothe joined the meeting to provide his department report. Mr. Kothe provided a written report.

 

Mr. Kothe discussed mowing and checking on the restrooms at the boat docks in the north part of the county. Mr. Kothe discussed a quote from Steve Bourgard of Bogie and Sons for sealing the roof of the Courthouse. Chairman Dinning said he talked about issuing payment for this service after the start of the next budget year and that seemed to be okay. 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to accept the quote of $3,200 from Bogie and Sons to re-seal the roof of the Courthouse subject to the available budget. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.  

 

The meeting with Mr. Kothe ended at 9:45 a.m.

 

Commissioners reviewed claims for payment. Fund totals are as follows:

 

(insert claims)

 

Commissioners tended to administrative duties.

 

9:50 a.m., County resident Janet Satchwell stopped by Commissioners’ Office to voice her support of the county working with the Forest Service to brush the roads. It’s important that people can get to places. Ms. Satchwell said Queen Trail is getting brushy now and that is an established trail. Chairman Dinning said the county needs to sign an agreement with the Forest Service then the county will find an appropriate time to help brush these roads as the county roads need it, too. The county is moving forward in helping the Forest Service brush roads and is also looking into the ability to utilize the help of community service juveniles for this.

 

Ms. Satchwell left the meeting at 9:53 a.m.

      

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to approve the minutes of August 19 and 20, 2013.  Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Deputy Clerk Nancy Ryals joined the meeting at 10:05 a.m.

 

10:10 a.m., Commissioner Kirby moved to go into closed session under Idaho Code #31-874. Commissioner Pinkerton second. Motion passed unanimously. 10:11 a.m., Commissioner Kirby moved to go out of closed session. Commissioner Pinkerton second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to deny indigent application #2013-31 as per the Clerk’s recommendation. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Deputy Clerk Ryals and Clerk Poston left the meeting at 10:15 a.m.

 

Restorium Administrator Karlene Magee and Deputy Clerk Nancy Ryals joined the meeting at 10:20 a.m.

 

Deputy Clerk Ryals talked to Ms. Magee briefly about the Restorium elevator grant in regards to an additional $3,115 received for the snow stops and gutters. Ms. Magee said she hadn’t been informed of these funds.

 

Deputy Clerk Ryals left the meeting at 10:25 a.m.

Commissioners and Ms. Magee reviewed the update of the Quickbooks bookkeeping system. Commissioners asked if there is anything they can do or provide to help Ms. Magee catch up on the bookkeeping program. Commissioners said it may help to have someone work specifically on this program because Ms. Magee has a facility to run. Commissioners indicated that it was not acceptable that critical Medicaid information hadn’t been included in the report since May.

 

Commissioners discussed matters relating to funding and running the Restorium as well as focuses of the Commissioners and the role of the Restorium Advisory Board. Commissioner Kirby said Ms. Magee has always had Commissioners’ support.

 

Ms. Magee said she had been hesitant about providing the waiting list to Commissioners as there are potential residents on the list who would not want their information shared. Commissioners assured Ms. Magee that Commissioners are entrusted with information that is a lot more confidential. Chairman Dinning said the question is how to get potential residents to fill the vacant rooms as quickly as possible. Commissioner Kirby briefly mentioned the process of filling the rooms based on the waiting list. Commissioner Pinkerton asked Ms. Magee if she had any suggestions about filling the rooms. Ms. Magee said it isn’t an instant process as the potential resident has to meet her criteria as well as have notes from their doctor and family members, etc. Commissioners asked about the normal time frame to fill a room such as six months. Ms. Magee said it’s normally not that long.   

 

Chairman Dinning said there are people who are hired who can provide advertising for the facility such as providing notice of available rooms. This is something that falls on Ms. Magee now so it may be helpful to hire someone else so Ms. Magee has time to manage the Restorium. There is enough staff to provide care for 30 residents as it does for 40 residents. Ms. Magee mentioned the Restorium has to have a certain amount of square feet per restroom so that is something to consider. Chairman Dinning said he does know the Restorium is licensed for up to 50 residents. Chairman Dinning said he would like to see the Restorium have so many people want to stay there that the county has to add on. Commissioner Kirby questioned if it’s better to build the addition first. Chairman Dinning said he isn’t going to mandate residents share a restroom, but if there are residents willing to do that, Commissioners can take a look at that.

 

Chairman Dinning said Commissioners are trying to learn more about the Restorium and they advised Ms. Magee to not get into the political mess between them and the Restorium Advisory Board.

 

The meeting with Ms. Magee ended at 11:05 a.m.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to authorize the Chairman to sign the FY 12 Juvenile Accountability Block Grant Award. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously. 

 

11:10 a.m., Commissioner Kirby conducted a quarterly jail inspection.

Clerk Glenda Poston joined the meeting at 11:12 a.m.

 

Clerk Poston said she received the county’s property values from the State and on September 3, 2013 the county held the budget hearing for the Ambulance Service District for fiscal year 2013-2014. On September 4, 2013, the State had sent a notice stating the personal property amounts they had sent included the urban renewal information so those prior values were incorrect. Clerk Poston said after the county’s budget hearing she learned from the State the information on values had been wrong. The amount of $367,476 for property values was incorrect and the total is actually lower. The Ambulance District had a levy of .004% along with the higher, incorrect values so the difference is only approximately $150.

 

She provided Commissioners with a resolution to amend the prior resolution adopting the fiscal year 2013-2014 Ambulance Service District budget.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to amend the agenda for 1:50 p.m., to include the adoption of the resolution amending the Ambulance Service District budget for fiscal year 2013-2014 as it’s time sensitive. Chairman Dinning yield the chair to second. Motion passed unanimously.  

 

Commissioner Kirby returned to the meeting.

 

11:45 a.m., Commissioner Dinning, Commissioner Pinkerton and Clerk Poston visited the snowmobile park due to complaints from neighbors near the park. No decisions were made.

 

Commissioners recessed for lunch.

 

1:30 p.m., Commissioners met for the afternoon session with Chairman Dinning, Commissioner Pinkerton, Commissioner Kirby, Clerk Poston, and Deputy Clerk Michelle Rohrwasser.

 

1:30 p.m., County Noxious Weeds Superintendent Duke Guthrie joined the meeting. Mr. Guthrie said donations are being sought to keep the Idaho Weeds Awareness Program going forward as the budget for this program has been cut. There are a lot of awareness measures getting out to the public so this program helps, according to Mr. Guthrie. It was suggested approaching the Governor’s Office to add a line item to the budget as that hasn’t been done. Mr. Guthrie said he had been on the committee and that had also been the committee’s recommendation. Mr. Guthrie said education is a big part of how to control noxious weeds and he added that a website is available. Mr. Guthrie said the donation request had been for $500, but he does have $200 available in his budget.

 

Commissioner Kirby moved to donate $200 from the Weeds Budget to the State of Idaho Weeds Awareness Program. Commissioner Pinkerton second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Commissioners and Mr. Guthrie reviewed quotes for a vehicle for the Weeds Department. Mr. Guthrie said Rockstad Ford, Alpine Motors, Taylor Parker, and Dave Smith Motors were approached. Rockstad Ford submitted a quote, Taylor Parker and Alpine were going to submit quotes, but never did and Dave Smith Motors responded that they didn’t have anything available.  

 

The quote from Rockstad Ford has met the criteria. These are half ton trucks and the one quote was a three quarter ton, according to Mr. Guthrie. Chairman Dinning and Mr. Guthrie reviewed the quotes.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to accept the County’s Noxious Weeds Superintendent’s recommendation for a 2013 F-150 Super Cab pick up for $25,672 depending on availability. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.  

 

Mr. Guthrie left the meeting.

 

Commissioner Kirby moved to approve the minutes of September 2 & 3, 2013. Commissioner Pinkerton second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to sign the One Year Extension to the Agreement for Animal Shelter Services. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Chief Probation Officer Stacy Brown joined the meeting.

 

Clerk Poston said the proposed Ambulance Service District’s budget had been published in the newspaper at $334,000, which was an assumed amount. On August 29th the State of Idaho sent to counties the amount for state values, which was $8,258,350.52. A budget hearing was held on September 3rd, and the Ambulance District’s budget was approved at $330,334, which is the 0004% levy. On the morning of September 4th the State Tax Commission sent counties an email stating the property tax figure they had sent out was incorrect. The Ambulance District’s budget needs to be amended because it’s based on a fixed levy amount going back to property values. The fiscal year 2013-2014 Ambulance District budget needs to be amended so a resolution amending that budget by $150 needs to be adopted.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to recess as the Boundary County Board of Commissioners and convene as the Governing Board of the Ambulance Service District. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to adopt Resolution 2013-1A (Amended). A resolution amending Resolution 2013-1A adopting the fiscal year 2013-2014 Boundary County Ambulance Service District budget. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously. Resolution 2013-1A (Amended) reads as follows:

Recorded as instrument #258703

 

Commissioner Pinkerton moved to adjourn as the Governing Board of the Boundary County Ambulance Service District and reconvene as the Boundary County Board of Commissioners. Commissioner Kirby second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Ms. Brown said the Juvenile Justice Association conference went well this year. Ms. Brown said she is now officially the past president of the Juvenile Justice Association so her duties are less this year and the Misdemeanor Officer Academy is now held only once per year so that is another substantial savings. Ms. Brown said she is now the Chairperson for the Restorative Justice Committee and she will also sit on the grant scoring committee. That will be a good thing for the county, according to Ms. Brown.

Ms. Brown informed Commissioners her department was able to purchase $1,529 worth of office equipment for a little over $100 through a grant. 

 

Ms. Brown said Kootenai County Commissioners would still like to have an advisory group for the Region I Juvenile Detention Center and they had requested Ms. Brown sit on that group.

 

Commissioner Pinkerton and Ms. Brown discussed staffing matters and ensuring department coverage.

 

Ms. Brown and Clerk Poston left the meeting at 2:10 p.m.

 

Commissioners tended to administrative duties.

 

2:30 p.m., Treasurer Jenny Fessler joined the meeting to discuss delinquent taxes.

 

Treasurer Fessler said property owner Daryle Anderson can only pay $50 per month toward his mobile home taxes, but his 2013 taxes will become delinquent if he pays only that amount. If Mr. Anderson continues to pay $50, it will keep the Sheriff’s Office from seizing or posting the property.

 

Treasurer Fessler said Mr. Anderson owes taxes for years 2011 and 2012 and the Treasurer’s Office is about to bill for year 2013 taxes. Treasurer Fessler said Mr. Anderson was incarcerated during part of this time and he was released sometime around December, but it isn’t known when he went to jail. The cost of $131.48 is the amount Mr. Anderson owes for the solid waste fee and the translator fee. The actual property tax amount for year 2012 was $12.60. It’s the solid waste fee, etc., that increases the amount owed. Treasurer Fessler said Mr. Anderson does receive a homeowner’s exemption benefit. If Mr. Anderson paid $478.20 today, it would bring his taxes current. It was said if Mr. Anderson only owed the tax portion, a $50 payment would pay that off without interest, sheriff’s fees, etc.

 

Commissioners suggested Mr. Anderson continue paying $50 per month to eventually get his taxes caught up. Treasurer Fessler asked what would happen if a payment is missed. Commissioners contacted one of the county appraisers via telephone and learned that $1,000 of Mr. Anderson’s assessment is another structure and $1,500 is the camper he lives in. Chairman Dinning said the camper is not licensed according to county records so it has to be taxed in this fashion.

 

Commissioners asked Treasurer Fessler if she would contact Mr. Anderson to see what options can be worked out. Commissioners discussed getting Mr. Anderson to license the camp trailer instead of taxing it as a mobile home.

 

Treasurer Fessler left the meeting at 2:55 p.m.

 

Commissioner Kirby moved to cancel taxes and fees for years 2011 and 2012 for parcel #MH61N01W25615AA for property owner Daryle Anderson and to have the Treasurer contact Mr. Anderson to encourage him to license the camp trailer. Commissioner Pinkerton second. Motion passed unanimously.

 

Treasurer Fessler stopped back by Commissioners’ Office to inform them she spoke to Mr. Anderson about Commissioners’ proposal. Treasurer Fessler said Mr. Anderson said he could come to the Courthouse this week. Treasurer Fessler left the meeting.

 

3:00 p.m., There being no further business, the meeting adjourned.
