5. NEW DISTRICT RANGER FOR CANYON LAKES DISTRICT: Reghan Cloudman, from the United States Forest Service, introduced Kevin Atchley, the new District Manager for the Canyon Lakes District, to the Board.
The Board congratulated Mr. Atchley on his new position and he briefly updated them on the progress of spraying campgrounds to help ward off pine beetles.
6. COUNTY MANAGER WORKSESSION: Mr. Lancaster presented the discussion topics proposed for the Board’s meeting with the Fort Collins City Council and the Loveland City Council. The Board reviewed the topics and listed the ones they believed to be most pertinent.
Mr. Lancaster requested the Board’s approval to request a discussion about Worker’s Compensation claims and coverage, as related to the Senior Property Tax Work-off Program, at Colorado Counties Inc. (CCI). He stated that currently, the Department of Human Services must cover the individuals enrolled in the work-off program on the department’s worker’s compensation coverage, as this is the department from which the individuals are paid. However, because the individuals are placed in departments throughout the county, the Department of Human Services does not control the seniors’ work environments.
Also, in order to place seniors in non-profit companies, the company must agree to pay any worker’s compensation claims that may arise from that individual. Mr. Lancaster is worried that this may become a deterrent for many non-profits currently considering hiring seniors enrolled in the program.
He suggested the topic be considered during a CCI session as counties across the state employ individuals in the program and face the same obsticles. The Board agreed and Chair Rennels asked Mr. Lancaster to request information from surrounding counties about how they have structured their worker’s compensation for individuals enrolled in the program.
7. REVIEW OF THE 2008 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND DISCUSSION OF THE COUNTY AUDITOR’S FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS: Ms. Block and Ms. Lopez introduced Alan Holmberg, from Anderson & Whitney, who conducted the official audit of the 2008 financial statements on behalf of the county. He stated the audit did not reveal any concerns and his conclusion was that the county’s finances were fairly represented in the statements.
The Board will meet with Ms. Block and Ms. Lopez during a worksession on July 27, 2009, to further review Mr. Holmberg’s findings.
8. COMMISSIONER ACTIVITY REPORTS: The Board reviewed their attendance at events during the previous week.
9. LEGAL MATTERS: There were no legal matters to discuss today.
There being no further business, the meeting adjourned at 10:30 a.m.
