5.  CREATE A POLICY TO GUIDE COUNTY EMPLOYEES, APPOINTED OFFICIALS AND ELECTED OFFICIALS DURING A SEVERE COMMUNICABLE DISEASE OUTBREAK:  Ms. Cerciello explained that the Human Resources Department, in conjunction with the Health Department, have developed a policy that will guide County employees, appointed officials, and elected officials during an outbreak of a severe communicable disease.  This policy is to ensure that measures are in place to safeguard the welfare of employees and citizens of Larimer County, while maintaining operations in an effective and efficient manner.  Ms. Dyer addressed specific aspects and topics included in the policy, and discussion ensued among the Commissioners.  Chair Gibson inquired about vaccinations for appointed and elected officials, and Ms. Cerciello said that she would look in to this aspect of the policy and bring a draft back to the Commissioners at a later date. 

 

6.  EXTEND THE LIMITS OF CONSTRUCTION FOR THE COUNTY ROAD 80 (CHEROKEE PARK ROAD) PROJECT AND ALLOCATE ADDITIONAL CAPITAL PROJECTS FUNDING TOWARDS THIS PROJECT:  Mr. Engemoen, and Mr. McDaniel addressed the Board and discussed the capital improvement project on Cherokee Park Road between County Road 82E and the top of Calloway Hill.  The County recently received a request from the local fire department to extend the project west of County Road 82E approximately 2,000 feet, just past the fire station.  The request is to improve the condition of the roadway and thereby improve fire department response times for emergencies.  The Engineering and Road & Bridge Departments have been setting aside $200,000 per year since the year 2000 for transportation improvements. However, the cost to construct the project is equal to approximately $1.8 million, which means the departments would be borrowing against the $200,000 through 2008.  If the additional 2000 feet is added to this project, there would be an additional cost of $150,000-$200,000, which will extend the borrowing into 2009. 

Several advantages to this project include an already completed design, plus the funds for the project are currently available.  Commissioner Rennels said that she has visited the project location, including the fire station, and feels as though the road leading up to the fire house is inadequate.  She also believes that the extension of the existing plan would be extremely beneficial to the fire fighters and surrounding community.

Motion carried 3-0.

 

M O T I O N

Commissioner Rennels moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve negotiating an amendment to increase the project contract by up to $200,000 to make the additional improvements.
