1. Mandatory Supervisory Training. Mr. Jacobs began the meeting with a discussion of the mandatory supervisory training program as outlined in the memo distributed to the Commissioners, reviewing the advantages and disadvantages. The purpose of today's discussion, as stated by Mr. Jacobs, was to request guidance from the Commissioners as to procedure in incorporating a mandatory supervisory program as well as to inquire if the Commissioners wish to ascribe to a particular 'management philosophy' to be included in this program. Much discussion followed with respect to various management philosophies, who this mandatory training would include, how the present curriculum came into existence, current laws and how to maintain the current program. CONSENSUS OF THE BOARD was to instruct Mr. Jacobs to continue with the current program until the Board decides on a management philosophy to be added to the mandatory supervisory training program. Mr. Jacobs will publish a draft policy regarding this program for distribution to the County departments for input and suggestions. Chair Disney requested Mr. Gluckman to extract any management philosophy references from the strategic plan for distribution with Mr. Jacob's draft policy. Mr. Gluckman will also provide a copy for the Board to review. Commissioner Duvall inquired of Mr. Hart if a management philosophy was already part of the current classes. Mr. Hart responded that he was not aware of a particular philosophy, but would contact The Mountain States Employers Council (present class provider) regarding this matter. Discussion followed concerning the internal survey and if the mandatory training program could address some of the problems identified in the survey. At this time, Commissioner Duvall excused herself to attend a meeting with the Private Industry Council. Chair Disney suggested that Mr. Jacobs discuss the possibility of developing a safety training program with Ms. Anderson-Siler, Assistant Risk Manager.

Much discussion followed concerning the distribution of the surplus between the County and current employees. Mr. Jacobs stated he will consult with the Medical Insurance Advisory Board for guidance in distributing the employee portion of the fund. At this time Mr. Keister Larimer County Budget Manager, was invited to join the meeting. Mr. Keister gave a concise overview of the various insurance reserve funds currently held by Larimer County.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

4. Waiver of Personnel Policy Manual for Planning Department: Ms. Bennett came before the Board requesting a waiver of Section 404 of the Larimer County Personnel Policy Manual, which states, "An employee may work in more than one County department on a permanent basis only if the hours worked do not exceed forty (40) hours per week." As stated by Ms. Bennett, the Planning Department is in need of a highly trained employee to help complete the GIS project. The Assessor's office and the Planning Department have negotiated an arrangement for Planning to employ one of the Assessor's office Mapping Technician from the Mapping Section of the Assessor's beyond the normal 40 hour work week. Discussion followed regarding options in the rate of pay for this individual. As a result of this discussion Mr. Jacobs stated that the overtime policy will also need to be waived.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board waive Section 404 of the Larimer County Personnel Policy Manual, as well as the overtime policy, and reimburse this particular employee overtime for all hours he works in Planning using his current rate of pay for the work he normally performs for the Assessor's Office.

Motion passed 2 - 0.

4. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT REVENUE BONDS, ULTIMATE SUPPORT SYSTEMS, INC: Mr. Grewell requested Board approval and the Chair's signature on two inducement resolutions; he described the two issues and noted they have been approved as to form by the County Attorney George Hass.

Mr. Dwyer informed the Board that these types of bonds are available only for manufacturing facilities and only for companies who will expend not more than $10 million in a six year-period in capital expenditures; he noted that this type of financing was designed by Congress to aid smaller companies with their capital acquisition costs and 95% of the money has to be used for the acquisition of land, construction of buildings, and purchase of equipment. Mr. Dwyer informed the Board that the bonds won't be issued except with a Bank One Letter of Credit behind them, so the bond holders will be fully protected and secured both in terms of collateral and liquidity facility. Mr. Hass stated that previously he had a question with regard to a requirement for applying for special review for expansion under the zoning regulations; however, he has been advised that special review is not necessary for the expansion and he recommends the Board approve the resolutions. Mr. Grewell also recommended the Board approve the resolutions; he stated that today's action is preliminary and final approval and authorization of the issuance of bonds will take place during the public hearing on May 17, 1995.

Commissioner Duvall requested reassurance that neither county nor state money will be required with this action; Mr. Dwyer stated that individual investors out in the market will buy these funds and these types of bonds secured in this way are usually sold to tax exempt money market funds. Mr. Dwyer assured Commissioner Duvall that there is no county money behind these bonds, but it order for them to be tax exempt, the county has to approve the transaction and issue the bonds; the bonds will state that the county has no liability whatsoever.
