Miller moved, Burns seconded, 3 to 1 carried (Jonson Nay) to approve the Professional/Technical contract with Preservation Alliance for Minnesota Historical Society Legacy Grant applications. 

HR Director Arrick-Kruger, spoke briefly about the contract with Preservation Alliance to write the grant proposals for submission to the Minnesota Historical Society. She has met with the Historical Society, Preservation Alliance, and detailed a phased strategy to seek access to Legacy Grant funding to aid in restoration and repair of the Historic Courthouse and Historic Jail facilities. Johnson expressed concern that agreeing to this contract sets us on a path towards reuse of the Historic Jail facility when that decision hasn’t been made yet. Other board members acknowledged the need to address repairs of the Courthouse Building immediately and the roof of the old jail regardless of use, but felt what to do with the jail is still up for discussion. Grant recipients will be announced in early fall. The use of the historic jail needs to be decided before the grants can be drawn up in the eyes of Johnson. Burns feels that we have already decided to not demolish the jail so we need to decide to go ahead with the grant. Johnson wants to restate his case and wants it to be noted that two big projects are being done and our priorities need to lie on the county shop, and fix the courthouse ourselves and not use the grant monies.

 Phase I of the Grant proposal addresses repairs to the roof of the Historic Courthouse and repairs to the historic staircase entry. Phase Ia is a small grant that will request funding to develop the engineering documents of the Historic Jail Building. Phase II focuses on remaining repairs required on the Courthouse building and for the roof of the Jail building. Phase 1 application is due in July, phase I1 in October, and Phase II dates have not been identified, but expected mid-summer of 2020. 

Burns moved, Johnson seconded, 3 to 1 carried (Johnson nay) to approve a County Match of up to $300,000 for the Grant application for repairs to the Historic Courthouse facility (Phase I) upon acceptance of the grant. 

Johnson moved, Miller seconded, unanimously carried to approve the E911 service support agreement with Vesta Solutions for E911 service. 

Sheriff Mark Inglett and Detention Sergeant Olson shared the options considered prior to recommending the support agreement with Vesta Solutions. This solution will bring “text-to-911” service direct to the County and allow easier transition to future improvements as changes to Enhanced 911 develop. Miller commend Mark Olson for stepping up to this position and supporting the E911 development. Johnson also commend both Olson and Inglett for all their work on this. 

Miller spoke about Wildcat Park stating he spoke with Jake briefly about the boat launch; overall, it is off to a good start. 

Walter spoke about Board of Equalization all went well. EMS meeting still working on state and county monies. Workforce Development has a new director who will take over at next meeting. 

The board officially thanks Carl Ask for his 23 years of service. 

There being no further business and the time being 11:01 a.m., Burns moved, Johnson seconded, and unanimously carried to adjourn the meeting, the next advertised meeting being a Regular Board Meeting on Tuesday, June 25, 2019.
