2. DISCUSSION ITEM - JOHNSTON MINOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT:

Mr. Kadera reviewed the background of a problem which has arisen between Dick Johnston, landowner and developer of the Johnston MRD, (approved in September 1993) and the Hidden View Estates Subdivision Homeowner's Association. Originally, Mr. Johnston owned the property which included the leach field for the Hidden View Estates Subdivision; a Homeowner's Association was formed, an agreement was reached, and Mr. Johnston deeded the leach field to the Association and sold them an additional parcel for expansion of the leach field in the future. The County agreed that the Homeowner's Association would be responsible for the operation and maintenance of the leach field and that no building permits would be issued without the consent of the Association. Mr. Johnston has applied for a building permit and the Association has refused to sign off on a building permit until Mr. Johnston pays a tap fee of $5,000; Mr. Johnston refuses to pay the fee and an impasse has been reached. The County Attorney advised that this is a civil matter but it was hoped that by discussing this matter before the Board today an agreement could be reached without the need for litigation.

Mr. Johnston described the problems he has had obtaining approval of the Johnston MRD. Mr. Johnston stated he is desirous of reaching an agreement with the Homeowners Association and only wishes to be treated fairly and equally; he suggested that to be fair, all the homeowners should pay their proportionate share for the expansion. Mr. Johnston offered to withdraw from the original agreement and provide an on-site septic system for the homes in his MRD. The attorney for the Homeowner's Association stated that the Association has no objection to Mr. Johnston adding on to the sewer system; however, the problem relates to dollars, the existing sewer system is at capacity and if Mr. Johnston comes onto the system, the system must be expanded and money is needed for the expansion. Ms Haag stated that interpretation of the original agreement between Mr. Johnston and the Homeowner's Association is vague with regard to outlining the rights and obligations of the parties involved. Lengthy discussion followed.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Hotchkiss moved that the Board deny the request to amend the conditions of the Johnston Minor Residential Development, and noted for the record that the Board has tried to negotiate an agreement between the owner of the Johnston Minor Residential Development and the Homeowner's Association of the Hidden View Estates Subdivision.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The meeting recessed at 10:00 a.m.

LIQUOR LICENSE VIOLATION HEARING

FOR "END OF THE TRAIL" SALOON

(#479)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:00 p.m. for a Liquor License Violation Hearing for the End of the Trail Saloon. Chairman Pro-Tem Disney presided; Commissioner Hotchkiss was present, Chair Duvall was absent. Also present were George Hass, County Attorney, and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Mr. Rusty Nichols, attorney for Edith Moynier Stark, owner and liquor license holder of the End of the Trail Saloon, asked for a continuance of the hearing for two weeks because he hasn't had adequate time to review and prepare for the hearing. After discussion, it was decided to proceed with the hearing today.

Mr. Hass called Sheriff's Department Deputy William Eckrich to the stand; who was sworn in by Chairman Pro-Tem Disney and questioned by Mr. Hass. Deputy Eckrich described three incident reports (Exhibits 1, 2 and 3) from the End of the Trail Saloon, located at 1720 Glade Road in Loveland, Colorado and it was noted for the record that copies of these reports were previously sent to the license holder. Deputy Eckrich also submitted a computer printout (Exhibit 4) from the Sheriff's Department indicating twenty (20) calls of complaint against the End of the Trail Saloon in the last seven and one-half months; and a copy of the letter from Deputy Eckrich (Exhibit 5) requesting this hearing was also submitted. Deputy Eckrich stated that his main concern and reason for calling this hearing was that during one of the incidents Ms. Stark was requested to call the Sheriff's Department for assistance and she refused because she felt if the Sheriff was called, someone from the Sheriff's Department would be at her place every night. Deputy Eckrich noted that failing to call the Sheriff's Department when a disturbance occurs on the licensed premise, when requested to do so, is a violation of Colorado Revised Statute 12-47-130(1)(a) Regulation 47-105.1(1CCR 203-2).

Mr. Nichols cross-examined Deputy Eckrich and questioned Ms. Stark, after she was sworn in, about the three incidents described by Deputy Eckrich. Ms. Stark stated that subsequent to the three incidents in November, she has improved the lighting in the parking lot, increased staff by hiring additional bouncers and bartenders, installed moniters and a camera inside the bar and pool room, and all the bouncers wear two-way walkie-talkies. Ms. Stark submitted four pictures (Exhibits A,B,C, and D) of signs put in the windows saying "No Colors" to prohibit gang members inside the Saloon. Mr. Hass cross-examined Ms. Stark and she agreed to call the Sheriff's Department in the future if and when a disturbance occurs in her establishment; also Ms. Stark indicated she will have regular employee meetings to review the Colorado State Liquor Code Regulations with her employees. Commissioner Hotchkiss asked if there have been any violations inside the establishment; Deputy Eckrich responded that no violations inside have been documented. Mr. Nichols stated that Ms. Stark is trying to run a proper establishment and has learned a great lesson since last November; Mr. Hass noted that operating a bar in this State is a privilege granted by a license and the license holder has to have certain qualifiications for operating a liquor establishment and it is not a place for "on-the-job training". Mr. Hass offered several options for the Board to consider; further discussion ensued. Based on the evidence presented today and because the seriousness of the problem merits some type of disciplinary action, mainly the refusal to call the Sheriff, the following action was taken:

M O T I O N

Commissioner Hotchkiss moved that the Board of County Commissioners suspend the liquor license and close the End of the Trail Saloon at 1720 Glade Road, Loveland, Colorado for ten (10) days, beginning April 10 until April 20, 1994, and further moved that the Board suspend seven (7) days of that closure, resulting in closure of the establishment on April 10, 11, and 12, 1994, providing there are no more violations, alleged and proven, within the next six months.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The meeting adjourned at 3:20 p.m.

TUESDAY, APRIL 5, 1994

PUBLIC WORKS STANDING MEETING

(#481)

The Board of County Commissioners met at 9:30 a.m. in regular session with Rex Smith, Director of Public Works. Chair Duvall presided; Commissioners Disney and Hotchkiss were present. Also present were: Bill Heiden, Director Road and Bridge Department; Steve Chaffee and Don Haywood, Bike Racers; Lt. Dave Cox, Sheriff's Department; and Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

1. SPECIAL EVENTS PERMIT PROCESS: Much discussion ensued regarding concerns with the existing Special Events Permit Process. Mr. Smith requested minor revisions be made to the resolution and permit form to require an early check by Road and Bridge to see if there will be a conflict with road maintenance or construction at the time of the event, but not to require Road and Bridge to recommend approval or denial of the event. Mr. Smith also stated that the Board's policy regarding road closures for these events need to be reviewed. Lt. Cox stated that the Sheriff's Department position for issuing a permit is to check for safety and make a recommendation solely on whether or not it is safe to allow the event, they are not concerned with impact on citizens or road construction. After much discussion, it was agreed by all that the special events permit process needs to be streamlined. Commissioner Disney indicated his sanction for occasional road closures for these events, but maybe should consider placing a quota on the number of races allowed on any given road. Commissioner Hotchkiss stated that he feels that road closures should be avoided, if possible. Mr. Haywood said the reason they asked for a road closure is because the Buckeye Race has grown so large--over 700 bikers this year. Mr. Chaffee stated that the Frost-Bite Time Trial Race would need a 2 1/2 to 3 hour road closure. It was agreed by all that the promoters of the races should do all the planning. Commissioner Disney will work with a committee comprised of Mr. Smith, Lt. Cox, bike racers, concerned citizens, etc. and review the current policy regarding Special Events Permits and make revisions as suggested today. Chair Duvall suggested compiling a list of all the races scheduled for the year and having a public hearing to provide an opportunity for the Board to address the concerns of all interested parties.

2. LAKE SHORE GARDENS DRAINAGE: Mr. Smith reviewed the drainage situation which exists north of Horseshoe Lake on Engleman Drive, previously discussed with the Board on March 15, 1994. Mr. Smith stated that the existing drainage problem has been caused by an extension added to the original system by the homeowners; the County Attorney advised that when the County accepted maintenance responsibility for these roads, storm sewer maintenance was not accepted. Two options were offered to the homeowners: 1) Allow the extension to remain if it causes no further problems on the street, or 2) If a problem develops, the County will furnish labor and equipment to replace the extension if the homeowners are willing to furnish materials and remove/replace sod, landscaping, etc., and the County will sign off for any responsibility for any future damage. The Board concurred with the options presented and directed Mr. Smith to take care of the problem.

3. TRANSPORTATION PLAN: With regard to the Felsburg Proposal for a Transportation Plan, Mr. Smith requested guidance from the Board whether or not to proceed and if so, how? Mr. Smith had three questions: 1) Should we do it? 2) Who will pay? 3) Who is going to do it? Commissioner Hotchkiss asked Mr. Smith what he thinks. Mr. Smith responded: 1) It should be done; 2) Road & Bridge should not pay for it; 3) Felsburg should be retained to do it. Commissioner Disney suggested that the Plan should be integrated with the Upper Front Range and North Front Range Transportation Plans, and should be comprehensive and GIS compatible. Commissioner Hotchkiss recommended that monies for this Plan should be derived from year-end carry over. Both Mr. Smith and Commissioner Disney recommended proceeding with the Felsburg Proposal, and it was noted that the new Assistant County Administrator will integrate this Transportation Plan Project with the Strategic Plan.

4. CR 193 IMPROVEMENT: Mr. Smith received a call from the Loveland City Engineer requesting County participation for improvements on Namaqua Road to add paved shoulders and an overlay. Mr. Smith noted these improvements would be a joint project between the developer, City of Loveland, and the County and our cost would be $20,000; these monies to be derived from the Road & Bridge Budget. Mr. Smith stated that everything considered, it is probably wise to participate in this road enhancement project. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to direct Mr. Smith to inform the Loveland City Engineer that the County will participate in this joint effort.

5. ADOPT-A-ROAD: Mr. Heiden has had numerous inquiries regarding the County setting up an Adopt-A-Road Program for litter pickup and Mr. Smith requested approval from the Board to proceed in setting up this Program by Earth Day. The Board concurred with this request, although some concern was expressed as to signage, and directed Mr. Heiden to work with the Bureau of Reclamation on this project and draft procedures and a policy and return to the Board for formal adoption of the Program.

6. REQUEST FOR ADDITIONAL SICK LEAVE HOURS FOR ELAINE SPENCER: Mr. Smith submitted Ms. Spencer's schedule for her bone marrow transplant and stated that she will run out of donated sick leave by the end of April; Mr. Smith reminded the Board that over 2300 hours were donated by employees for Ms. Spencer and 600 have been used. Mr. Smith requested Board approval of an additional 300 hours; CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to approve up to 300 hours additional employee donated sick leave for Ms. Spencer.

The meeting recessed at 10:55 a.m.

3. REQUEST FOR APPROVAL REGARDING CHANGE OF INVENTORY POLICY: Mr. Gordon reviewed the history of the current inventory policy, adopted in 1990, which requires inventory of County property having an original value of $200 or more, except for certain items of furniture. The Larimer County Executive Council is requesting the Board to approve increasing this $200 limit to $500 for County owned fixed assets, excluding weapons. Mr. Martell noted that the State of Colorado Revised Statute 29-1-506 sets a $500 minimum amount and increasing the County's limit to $500 will bring the County into compliance with the State Statute.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Disney moved that the Board approve the change in the County inventory policy increasing the original value of inventoried property from $200 to $500 for County owned fixed assets, excluding weapons, as requested by the Larimer County Executive Council and recommended by the Purchasing Department.

4. WORKSESSION:

-- Mr. Gordon advised the Board he is having a difficult time arranging for the Planning Commission Members to come to a morning meeting with the Board and having a problem scheduling a meeting in the City Hall Chambers in order to have the meeting taped and televised. Mr. Gordon stated that the first open meeting time which can be scheduled in the Chambers is in May; the Board directed Mr. Gordon to schedule this meeting and to also schedule a worksession on long-range planning with the Planning Commission and the Board beforehand.

-- Mr. Gordon stated that Erik Nilsson, Emergency Management Specialist, is attempting to schedule an Emergency Operation Training Session, with the Board of County Commissioners, the City of Fort Collins, American Red Cross, and the State Emergency Management Agency. Mr. Nilsson has requested the Board to select at least two available days they would be free to attend the 2 1/2 hour session, to enable Mr. Nilsson to select a compatible date with the City, etc. The Board directed Mr. Gordon and Ms. Hart to select several dates and schedule a compatible time with the City and other agencies for this Emergency Management Training Session.

-- Mr. Gordon reminded the Board that on March 23, 1994, Commissioner Disney moved that the Board adopt a Resolution requesting the United States Congress to accelerate the process of developing and approving the National Highway System and to pass legislation designating and approving this System no later than September 30, 1994.

R94-32g RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE U.S. CONGRESS TO PASS

LEGISLATION APPROVING THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY SYSTEM

-- Mr. Gordon submitted a proposed Resolution and Ordinance concerning smoking in public places in unincorporated Larimer County, and requested authorization from the Board to proceed with first reading, publication, and public hearing.

Discussion followed and the Board agreed it would not be prudent to have too many items on the ballot. The School District is trying to find a use for the existing Fort Collins High School; the Board indicated their interest in possibly buying the school and the land surrounding it to serve as the County Administration Building. The Board directed Mr. Anderson, Facilities Manager, to check into this possibility.

-- Mr. Gordon stated that Paul Cooper, Director of Community Corrections, has been invited to participate in the Leadership into the 21st Century Organization Series of Training Retreats from April through November, at a cost of $1,600, and is asking if the Board would be willing to contribute to this expenditure.

STANDING MEETING WITH JOHN BARNETT, DIRECTOR OF PLANNING

(#485)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 2:00 p.m. in regular session with John Barnett, Director of Planning. Chair Duvall presided; Commissioners Disney and Hotchkiss were present. Also present was Bill Gordon, County Administrator. Recording Clerk, S. Graves.

Mr. Barnett stated that the purpose of today's meeting is to present the first of three installments of a workplan relating to special projects and requested comments, suggestions, and feedback from the Board during the discussions of the projects.

Mr. Barnett updated the Board on the following four projects : 1) Sign Code; 2) Special Exemption Review Group's (SERG) work on MRD regulations; 3) Planning Commission's work on long range planning and the Comprehensive Plan update; and 4) The introduction of the Sheriff's Department into land use application reviews. Mr. Barnett noted that the rural land use policy is being included as part of the Comprehensive Plan update rather than SERG. Mr. Barnett reported on the status of each project, a date which the project is to be completed, and a detailed work plan of the work in progress.

There was much discussion on each of the four projects and the Board concurred that several new policies need to be drafted to address some of the existing problems; for instance, what size development does the Board allow without public sewer. Mr. Barnett presented a proposed list of goals for the Board regarding the Larimer County Land Use Program.

The meeting adjourned at 3:25 p.m
