Commissioner Wagner moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the request for $15,000 start-up operating expense for Resource Fort Collins, contingent on Resource Fort Collins obtaining a site for their operations in the Fort Collins area.

 

Motion carried 3-0.

 

7.  WORKSESSION:  Mr. Lancaster informed the Commissioners that the letter, indicating the Board's endorsement of southwest annexation, has been sent to the Fort Collins City Council.  

 

Mr. Lancaster explained that the Board has received many complaints regarding broadband broadcasting, as the frequencies for this type of transmission are not regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and are often interrupted or intercepted.  Mr. Lancaster noted that the Board has no authority to regulate the transmissions, and he requested direction from the Board as to whether he should schedule a worksession with the Planning Department Director to discuss this issue.  The Board stated that a worksession would not be necessary, and that the issues could be addressed at the formal regulations hearing that will soon be scheduled.  Commissioner Wagner suggested the possibility of encouraging developers to address broadband transmission issues within their Homeowners Association Covenants.   

 

8.  COMMISSIONER ACTIVITY REPORTS:  The Board noted their attendance at events during the past week.  

 

9.  LEGAL MATTERS:  There were no Legal Matters to discuss.

 

The meeting adjourned at 10:35 a.m., with no further action taken.
