Thank you question. 00:09:57
Hopefully you can all hear me and thanks for showing up for Debbie's retirement. 00:09:59
For 21 years, 21 and a half 20. 00:10:06
For a long time. 00:10:12
She's been the face of the Sheriff's Office, left the Southwest, so that made-up for all those years and it's definitely been the 00:10:17
presence of the Sheriff's Office down there. She's countless customers and she's been like I said. 00:10:23
So a lot of us down there, including myself, you're going to be missed. 00:10:30
But your service is very it's very appreciated. And then. 00:10:34
We're looking forward to your retirement. 00:10:39
Enjoy your retirement and work. I miss you. There you go. 00:10:49
I thank you. I'm going to turn around Showers. 00:10:53
And I remember this gentleman here when he was just a deputy. 00:11:07
But thank you everybody. 00:11:17
She's asked to come back and work with a volunteer basis a couple of days a week or so. She'll be gone, but not really gone. 00:11:24
She'll still be back and helping us. I'm still waiting for the approval first. 00:11:29
Thank you for your years of service to the county and to the citizens. 00:11:42
I'm unsure who's going to hold the sheriff accountable once you leave, but I'm glad that I'm glad that you're going to enjoy 00:11:46
retirements. And I don't know who's going to run our southwest building, for crying out loud, without you there. So I'm glad to 00:11:50
hear you're coming back on a couple of days. That way we can keep things in order. Congratulations. Enjoy your retirement. You 00:11:54
deserve it. 00:11:59
I want to thank you. Also I have to tell you to being called the mom, you will be missed. I don't know if anybody can replace your 00:12:09
tremendous service. So I just want to thank you for the citizens of Weld County and absolutely from the Board of Commissioners. We 00:12:14
still appreciate you, but we hope to see you back real soon. 00:12:19
21 1/2 years? That's awesome. Any plans other than going back and volunteering? 00:12:27
No. 00:12:35
OK. Well, I hope you find something fun to do and enjoy retirement. And I just want to say thank you on behalf of Well County and 00:12:37
what you've done for everybody, our residents, you've done an amazing job and and getting to know you the brief amount I have, 00:12:43
it's it's awesome. You have a great support group over here and I just want to say thank you. So great job, Tim. 00:12:49
No matter how old we are, we still need our mom. So I hope you come back to visit the grandkids here. 00:12:57
And I assure you will, but would just really appreciate your years of service. Thank you so much for being part of our family. 00:13:05
And I would agree. I just want to thank you for what you've done for the citizens of the world county every day for 21 years, 21 00:13:12
1/2 years. 00:13:16
It's great to be in a county where people are really, really support law enforcement and it's an honor to work with all of you 00:13:20
guys. So enjoy your retirement. Hope you got a little bit of fun things planned other than just coming back and work more time. 00:13:26
I just don't know when OK with that. If we could take a picture that would be great. 00:13:33
Yeah, if you got people here you want with you, you can bring another picture of them. 00:13:40
Right in the middle. 00:13:57
3126. 00:14:11
123 Thank you. 00:14:16
I'll be around. 00:14:30
OK. With that, we'll move on to the next presentation with 2023 employee service awards for 10/20/30 and 40 year employees and 00:14:52
we're going to start with the. 00:14:56
And I've got your friends, Michael, yeah. 00:15:05
Good morning, Commissioners. Mike, Rick Miller from the Will County District Attorney's Office and we are extremely honored to be 00:15:12
able to present 10 year pins to the two employees that I will identify here. 00:15:17
First, I want to call out Leticia Cervantes. 00:15:25
And I told Matthew yesterday that the number of kind things that I was going to say to her was in direct relation to the size and 00:15:27
the quantity quality of coffee that she brought me this morning. You'll notice I don't have a coffee. 00:15:35
Matisse was actually first time in office as a receptionist in March of 2013. So she's 10 years and 10 months if I can do the 00:15:44
math. She promoted through the office to her current position as a District Court secretary. She was promoted to that position in 00:15:49
June 2016. 00:15:54
And as I was going through a fire, as you would expect, you see great review after great review. But what I really wanted to do 00:16:00
was share with you all and the audience some of the comments that her attorneys made about her as I was talking to them yesterday. 00:16:05
Leticia, probably the greatest asset a deputy DA can have. She's extremely diligent, intelligent and hard working team member who 00:16:10
puts out fires with the best of them. 00:16:15
Congratulations. 00:16:50
I told him I was going to try to start a new tradition of commissioners meeting and have every recipient say a few words on behalf 00:16:58
of the PIN, just to try to keep you all here till 5. 00:17:02
I would also like to acknowledge Michael Mickey Paralia. Mickey has been with our office since January of 2013. He was first hired 00:17:08
as a Deputy District Attorney and then very shortly after that promoted to Chief Deputy. 00:17:14
Because he is truly one of the most skilled and talented attorneys in my office, he's also one of the most trusted in my office. 00:17:20
Just this year, Nikki has tried and obtained convictions in a money money laundering case. 00:17:27
A very complex wire, wiretap, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and 1st degree murder. 00:17:34
Last year, attempted murder of a police officer out of Fort Lupt. 00:17:40
First degree murder, Conspiracy to commit distribute distribution of a controlled substance. Starting to get the idea? 00:17:44
Mickey is is absolutely a trusted colleague, a trusted friend. I love working with him every day and he is an enormous advocate, 00:17:52
both on behalf of our office and on this county. So, Vicki, I want to congratulate you for 10 years of service. I'm looking 00:17:57
forward to at least, hopefully five more years. How about that? 00:18:02
Lastly, I want to publicly acknowledge Julie Cedar who is a Legal Secretary Supervisor in my office. She is receiving her twenty 00:18:13
year pin today. She couldn't make it today, but I wanted to thank the commissioners on her behalf. So on behalf of the day's 00:18:19
office, thank you very much. I have to go to court to help defend the honor of the Sheriff again. 00:18:24
What County Essential Brenda Jones. 00:18:38
Come on up, Brenda. 00:18:41
Me too. It's always such a pleasure to be here recognizing the greatest asset of Wells County, which is our employee. 00:18:53
All of our employees are are the reason why Weld County is successful. I have the honor today of recognizing Josh Geltenbaum. Josh 00:19:03
works. He started with us 10 years and 10 months ago. 00:19:10
Commitment to always doing it well, to doing it right. He has an ability he works with. I don't even know how many. Hundreds, at 00:19:59
least thousands, probably of developers for 31 cities, one county. They're all doing their work differently. 00:20:06
OK, well, County Clerk and Reporter Carly Coppolas, come on up, Carly. 00:21:02
Good morning. I am Curly Confessable. Can I start a recorder? And it is my extinct honor to celebrate 3 ladies. Two of them are 00:21:20
with us today on 10 years of achievement here at the Treasury Court's office, in particular the Motor Vehicle Department. First, 00:21:26
other women should give them a round of applause for surviving that. 00:21:31
Her name is Christina. We all are. 00:21:43
And Katie here is down in the Southwest office, so she's very familiar with mom. 00:21:45
And she's also very glad to hear that Mom is going to still be there a couple days, and I am as well, because Kiki's a little bit 00:21:53
of fun. 00:21:56
One thing that in the motor vehicle world that is a huge asset is not only ability to be extremely friendly and professional with 00:22:01
the public, but also to keep the atmospheric light. It can be very daunting, especially when you get to tell people how much their 00:22:08
check is going to have to wait out for it and she has had the ability to. 00:22:15
Tell you that price and still have you leave with a smile. 00:22:22
She also has a little bit of fun with TikTok as well, so she's a little bit of a tick tock star in the motor vehicle world in Del 00:22:27
Camino, which is just again, how much fun and lightheartedness she continues to bring every single day to the motor vehicle 00:22:32
offices up to me now. 00:22:37
So I want to thank you for always being the the fun, uplifting spirit when things get daunting. We know Dan Delk. We know Kiki is 00:22:44
going to make sure that everybody is going to continue to arrive with a smile, both the employees and the public, but also leave 00:22:51
with one as well. And she is really a foundational member of the Del Camino office that makes sure that not only the public, but 00:22:59
her teammates and her manager and Rudy and myself have a very good day. And she made sure that she leaves everybody with a smile. 00:23:06
Her, she's gonna get a little, I know she's she's gonna get a little emotional, but. 00:23:14
But you deserve every single accolade and I hope you truly understand how important the past 10 years, your dedication, you've 00:23:21
working through all the different things that we've had to work through and it just continuing to be a shining star down in the, 00:23:26
you know and the public loves you down there. And we're so appreciated that you represent not as well county, but us to the public 00:23:32
so well, so thank you. 00:23:37
This is a Nancy. She works in the Greeley motor vehicle office. Nancy and I have a little bit of a unique history together. We 00:23:49
actually went through motor vehicle training together. So we got to build our motor vehicle knowledge together 10 years ago and it 00:23:55
was just fantastic to be able to see her drive and passion so early on in that moment with her having that dedication of learning, 00:24:01
all the complexity and challenges that are in motor vehicles and really seeing a very bright star of leadership in her at that 00:24:08
moment in time. 00:24:14
And that's why we are so proud to continue to invest in her. Because again, when she comes into the office, she has just a calm, a 00:24:56
strong demeanor to herself and she just makes sure that every single person is served really well. Now that she's in the 00:25:02
leadership role, she really makes sure that every single one of her coworkers feels comfortable coming and asking her questions. 00:25:08
She's constantly learning and improving on her knowledge with her vehicle. She's now actually representing Low County on a state 00:25:14
board. 00:25:19
So I'm really proud that she's been accepted and appointed to that. So she is also, you know, representing Love County at that 00:25:26
state level too. And I couldn't think of a better person to have on there making sure that they understand just how strong Will 00:25:32
County is, especially pushing back on some fun State stuff. And she's she does it just so well and so elegantly and so thank you 00:25:38
so very much for 10 years and I can't wait to continue to see where your leadership role keeps you going over the next ten, 2037 00:25:44
years. 00:25:50
That's right. Thank you so very much. 00:25:58
OK, Sheriff Steve Rings. 00:26:08
Thank you. 00:26:12
That if possible. 00:26:17
We have got a few people to recognize today. We're going to start with the 10 year folks for the people that have been here for 10 00:26:22
years. I guess everybody has tenure for a little while. We'll try out Dale Rd. 00:26:27
Come on up, buddy. 00:26:35
Christopher, Kevin. 00:26:39
Grady Nicholson. 00:26:42
And Jared? 00:26:45
I'm gonna list off the others that are on the list that I don't think you we have Gregory Schneider, Brian Horton, Spencer Rozier, 00:26:46
Alejandra Scooter. 00:26:51
Casper Marcheska and Kiara Lynch, that's eleven people who hit the 10 year mark with the wealth County Sheriff's Office. That's 00:26:56
that's not a it's not an easy easy task for a lot of reasons. But working at the Sheriff's Office I think ages you in dog years, 00:27:04
which you can tell. But I just want to go around and kind of highlight each one of these folks. Chris is one of our new guys in 00:27:11
our school resource officer program and it just had a little short tenure up at Johnson. We've got a lot of good feedback. 00:27:19
The kids love him. They call him Deputy Chris. They hug him and chase him all over the school. He plays basketball and I think 00:27:27
dodgeball sometimes with him, hopefully easy on him. 00:27:31
Very well received so far. It's coming from trying to put Christmas lights on your house and fall off again this year, so he's in 00:27:37
a little safer zone up in the school, but his service is greatly appreciated. 00:27:43
Next to him is Dale Rosebrook, Bill, one of our detectives. He's also a polygraph examiner. So he sees some of the worst of the 00:27:49
worst. He's working the, the, the, the nasty calls. No one wants to know the long county solving those cases but also doing a lot 00:27:55
of pre employment polygraph and some criminal polygraph tests to make sure that all the people accountable hearing from the county 00:28:00
as well. 00:28:05
And if you're a polygraph, that's not an easy task either. That's a 10 week school, a lot of investment in that process. And then 00:28:11
you also have to do all those tests to keep up, keep up with what you're doing. Dale's been an excellent, excellent addition to 00:28:17
our agency 10 years seems like it's kind of like just like that, but I'm sure you got a lot more years in here. 00:28:23
And next to him is Marcia Mueller. She's one of our sergeants in the jail. 00:28:30
Is a motor. She is constantly moving, constantly going out and interacting with folks, making sure the jail is running the right 00:28:34
way. 00:28:38
And one of the things about Faustina is really interesting. When we have a briefing when a new shift is going on, she's not 00:28:41
interacting with all the troops, kind of seeing what's going on in their family lives. Because it's more than just what goes on 00:28:47
day-to-day, It's knowing your troops. Plus, Nina's an excellent example of what leadership looks like at Sheriff's Office. 00:28:52
Thanks to her great Nicholson, Grady's like combat ready all the time. 00:28:58
Anywhere Mandolero and just general kind of ******. 00:29:04
We're always ready for, always ready for the big one. He's been on some big ones. He's been involved in a in a officer, involved 00:29:10
shooting, came out good on the other side. But Grady's just an example of what what a good cop is. He knows how to go out and 00:29:16
catch the bad guy. He knows how to hold people accountable. 00:29:21
And he's a model of what a cop should be. 00:29:27
There is also a Sergeant in Brazil administration now he said that when you have a problem you can't figure out how to solve it. 00:29:32
He's going to take things apart and really look at things in detail and and really did take a deep dive and figure out how do we 00:29:39
fix the long term issue. Jared's been a great addition to our team. He came to us with some experience, worked his way up through 00:29:45
the hill ranks and he's he's done a great service to our agency. 00:29:52
So all these guys and gals deserve your round of applause for your 10 years of service. Thank you. 00:29:59
Next on the list I haven't seen coming out that I may have missed you, Thomas Gray. 00:30:10
He's up for a 20 year pin. He might be working, I'm not sure. Well, just a few words on TomTom Bill with the agency. Obviously 20 00:30:16
years. He started as a detention staff. He worked as an FTO in the jail and then due to some some medical issues went into our 00:30:22
master control division. He still served there very well and in his off time he's one hell of a foster parent. He raises a lot of 00:30:29
kids that are kind of in trouble. He's got a great addition to our agency and he's just a good member of the community. 00:30:35
Then we have a couple of 30 Europeans. I'll say their names out loud. I don't know if you remember here, Pat Castle. She's also a 00:30:43
master control operator. 00:30:47
She and I started in the master control division almost the same time. She actually doesn't like public recognition, so I knew she 00:30:51
wasn't going to be here. 00:30:55
He's one of our courts guys again, 30 year employment. You may see Van around. He comes to a lot of agency events. He's got the, 00:31:00
he's called magic sheet, he's going through some medical issues, had some prosthetics, but never slowed him down. He's always 00:31:07
continued to work for the Sheriff's Office. Been a great, great employee for 30 years. 00:31:14
And again, he's he's not one that necessarily seeks public accolades, so I'm not surprised. I'm not sure. Last but not least. 00:31:21
We have a a really unique situation. We have a 40 year employee. 00:31:29
It's so unique that the county doesn't even have a pin for a 40. 00:31:34
So they had to say, well, what else can we come up with? 00:31:39
1983 wow. 00:31:54
That's a long time. 00:31:57
For 40 years, because there's not necessarily a pin that gets awarded for 40 years. Elected to award you a coat and I hear if you 00:31:59
make it until 50, you get a car. 00:32:03
Wait a minute. 00:32:12
What was popular in 1983? 00:32:19
I was there too. 00:32:23
Mario Brothers, the video game, had just been invented. 00:32:27
Sally Ride. 00:32:31
American woman to go into space. 00:32:33
Remember that. 00:32:35
Michael Jackson's Thriller album was #1 on the charts. You still listen to that? No. The match had a final episode on TV. 00:32:38
And last but not least, the Internet was born. 00:32:46
So no one has been around for a long time. She's seen a lot of history, not just that in the world, but at the Sheriff's Office. I 00:32:50
can't imagine how many inmates you've seen come and go. I certainly can't imagine how many employees you've seen come and go. The 00:32:55
Normans, been that rock. She's been a constant. 00:33:00
She's been there so long, I believe you set the record for the longest serving employee at the Weld County Sheriff's Office. 00:33:05
Here in the crowd, so Eli ready to put your hand up there. 00:33:21
40 years in any place is a long time, but normally you definitely deserve another round of applause. 00:33:32
Wow. 00:33:53
Excellent job everyone. Thank you. 00:33:56
Oh, Cortana. 00:34:01
Recording this first one is Accounting, Chris. 00:34:08
Yeah, come on up. 00:34:16
100% I'm expecting a 10 year pin on behalf of John in the planning department. 00:34:22
Your husband with us for about a year, but she has been accounting for over the 10 years, the first nine years that she's trying 00:34:33
to treasurers office. 00:34:37
So I reached out to Treasurer, see if they had anything you want to say about Johnny and what came back is exactly what you see 00:34:42
from John. 00:34:45
She's a perfect example of a county, but she's helpful, willing to do whatever always wanted to learn. 00:34:50
We're just really happy to have done on our team. It's 15 years. 00:34:59
Human resources, Jill. 00:35:09
Well, I have the pleasure of giving Michelle her 30 year pin. 00:35:25
How is everybody here? Tell Joe Michelle once or twice in their career here at Wells County, but 30 years ago, an amazing career 00:35:34
that she's had here. She started as a receptionist. 00:35:39
And the team had about 3:00 to 4:00 employees. The team is now growing with the needs of the county, and so she's doing a lot. She 00:35:44
tells them almost every functional area of human resources. 00:35:48
She has been a tremendous resource for me and friends and confidant as I transition to my role. 00:35:53
I think we accomplished each other quite well with her historical perspective of my new wild ideas. 00:35:59
But I really appreciate everything she's outside County and congratulations on her. Thank you. 00:36:07
You're welcome. I do have to say that I do have the best team now. So if you do have call HR, all of us can help you. Any of us 00:36:18
can help you because I have the best teams, so. 00:36:24
Good morning, Bridget Grimm, County Treasurer. 00:36:56
I have recently joined the county about six months ago, so I have asked Renee to speak on behalf of almost 10 years. 00:37:00
Thank you. So we're so lucky and blessed and happy to have Arma as a 10 year employee in the treasurer's office. She is amazing. 00:37:10
She will step in and work on any project. She comes to us with new ideas, which is awesome because that way we can be innovative 00:37:17
and make changes in the office. She's that perfect person to look at the front counter and see what needs to be done, what would 00:37:24
make a better. 00:37:31
Interaction with the public. No one wants to come in and pay their taxes. 00:37:39
People with a smile. She helps people in both English and in Spanish. She is fluent, so that's very helpful for a lot of people 00:37:44
who are coming in, have a lot of questions and just don't know exactly you know where to go. She has helped people even from other 00:37:51
offices because she is so fluent and can tell them go to this department or speak to this person. She is now also our remittance 00:37:58
processor. 00:38:05
For all of the checks that come through our office. So that's millions and millions and millions of dollars. 00:38:12
She can look at transactions and quickly decide exactly how they should be posted. She is an expert on mobile home. She is an 00:38:19
expert on customer service, but she's an expert on everything really, and we are so happy to have her in our office for 10 years. 00:38:26
We hope we get many, many more years. So we thank you so much for your service to our office and to the entire county home. 00:38:34
Thank you. 00:38:42
Even though I've only had six months with Honor, the one consistent thing that I've so appreciated about her is the wonderful 00:38:49
energy that she brings. 00:38:54
To us internally and to our taxpayers, thank you, Alma. We appreciate you. 00:38:59
OK, Public environmental health, Jason. 00:39:13
Come on up, health department staff. My name is Jason Cheshire. I'm the. I guess I can still call myself a new executive director. 00:39:30
I've got 10 months now, so I've got a ways to go to get in the world. I'm going to let the department heads introduce their staff, 00:39:35
but I want to say. 00:39:40
It's great to recognize these milestones of. 00:39:46
But I hope that each of you, especially the two that have been here 30 years, consider the impact that you've had on the county, 00:39:51
the number of lives that you had a positive impact on over the course for you, all 30 years, 10s of thousands of people go down. 00:39:57
So thank you for your service. Thank you for choosing the local county. 00:40:03
I talked loud. I want to introduce Sylvia, who's getting her twenty year pin, which the math is a little fuzzy on that because 00:40:11
she's only 29, so. 00:40:15
But no, Sylvia stated through our department, she's. 00:40:21
Covered a lot of divisions over her career. We're happy to have her back in the age family. She is responsible for keeping us on 00:40:26
track with our decorations. She keeps us, you know, Valentine's Day, Christmas. She's got it down. But she always freaks and 00:40:33
smile. She's always just a wonderful presence and it's just great to have right here and right next to her S and she's been with 00:40:41
us for 10 years. She's in our lab and she just brings kind of a levity to our group. That's worth describing the *****. 00:40:48
We have to have in our group and it just is great to have her on a team and I'm just happy to have both of you be part of our 00:40:56
organizations. Thank you. 00:41:00
Hi Sean, may I work at clinical community health solution dresser Aurora and Isabel over here. These give legs over here. And I 00:41:06
started the county about 3 1/2 years ago during the pandemic and I have to tell you these these two ladies took me under their 00:41:13
wings. They they caught me a lot. They showed me a lot, just incredible patience, incredible pride in working for well county and 00:41:21
working for the health department. 00:41:28
Jason says The number of people that that they have touched their lives and changed their life and particularly what they do 00:41:36
directly or indirectly, how to be 10s of thousands. 00:41:40
Truly remarkable people have a heart for service, and I just appreciate working with them. They have made me better. They make us 00:41:47
better. And you know, I know that. 00:41:53
Laura is going to be retiring in the new year. 00:42:00
Well deserved and and look forward to celebrating that as well. 00:42:04
I've offered her, Commissioner James, the opportunity to that volunteer program that you're running. 00:42:08
I let her know about that. Anyway, just wanted to recognize them. I really appreciate the opportunity for the board to recognize 00:42:13
these two really deserving employees. 00:42:17
Well, just lastly, I want to recognize Heidi Musil for 20 years of service and I want to just echo. 00:42:29
All the lives that she has touched my name, by the way, Zurich, Ockham. We're the Health, Education, Communication, Planning 00:42:37
Division. 00:42:40
And Heidi has been with us for 20 years doing positive, healthy behaviors in schools and with her too, There has to be 10s of 00:42:43
thousands of youth who have been positively impacted by her work and the results of her work and her passion probably won't bear 00:42:50
fruit for or are probably bearing fruit right now, but will continue to bear fruit for years and years and continue with with 00:42:58
their families and so. 00:43:06
Want to thank you for your 20 years of service and all the work you've done on. 00:43:14
Positive youth development within our schools and with you young people and youth. And I also want to thank John, her husband. 00:43:19
He's here today too. John, just give a wave in the back there. So again, thank you so much, 20 years. 00:43:26
County has a lot to be thankful for for your service and thank you for working with us here at the health department. You do make 00:43:34
us a better place, so thank you. 00:43:38
With that moving along to Commissioner Perry Buck, Yes. And I'm just looking for Tina Powell come to the stage. Come on down, 00:43:49
girl. 00:43:54
So I was, I've been privileged and absolutely honored to be the coordinator for Dispatch. And I don't know if you all know, but I 00:44:01
love ride alongs. And so I got to do a ride along in the Dispatch. 00:44:06
Saw the commotion with a huge accident. Good to see you again. And there was an attempted suicide where they had opinions phone to 00:44:13
find out where he was and there was a someone watching a neighbor's house getting burglarized. It was absolute chaos. I don't know 00:44:20
how you all do it on the other side of the cubicle someone was giving CPR and I just want you to know that this batch is a 00:44:27
certain. 00:44:33
Place for special, special talented people that can interact with people when their lives are probably. 00:44:40
Really it could be in the most tragic place. And Tina Rosa Raju has been with us for 10 years and when I asked her, you know, is 00:44:49
this what you saw yourself doing? And she said. 00:44:55
I don't think I've ever seen myself do anything different. So it does take a very special person to do what you do. And we are so 00:45:01
honored and so blessed to have you. 00:45:06
Thank you. 00:45:11
And we really appreciate being here and celebrating these milestones for our people. So our group is a little bit different. So 00:45:19
everybody up here plus a few more. 00:45:23
We all share exactly the same 10 year anniversary, so prior to 2013. 00:45:27
Our center was managed by the City of Greeley and so around I think it was September 2nd of 2013, the county. 00:45:34
Assumed control of the center, so all of us are at our tenure with accounting. 00:45:41
But one thing I think is important to mention is. 00:45:46
I just wanted to share with you guys their actual years of. 00:45:52
Everybody up here has been here for a very long time. 00:45:55
And so I just want to run through these really quick and share it with the board. As I share it with the board, if you guys can 00:45:58
raise your hand so they know which one you are. 00:46:02
Lori Filer, 24 years. 00:46:06
Birth of Ramos, 22 years. Stacy Dobbs, 21 years. Jenna Trotter, 20 years, Sandy Johnson 26 years. 00:46:09
Laura Schumacher, 31 years. 00:46:18
Tammy Swanson, 27. Val Harris, 19. 00:46:22
Mark Patterson just celebrated his 25th anniversary. 00:46:27
Jennifer only 110 years. 00:46:31
Adam Hascarf, 11, Michelle Jones, 12, Jessica Powers, 18, Julie Elliott, 10, and Nick Seipul, 10. So there's like 300 years worth 00:46:33
of experience up here. 00:46:39
And they they just continue to answer the call, their.com voice when you need them. And so I'm humbled every day and honored to 00:46:51
work with every one of them. So thank you. 00:46:56
And I just want to make a quick comment. I was actually here in 2013 when you brought dispatch over from Greeley to us. You guys 00:47:02
have done a phenomenal job with that center. Congratulations and thank you guys every day. 00:47:08
And now we will have Doug Eller with Justice Services. 00:47:28
Come on down. 00:47:32
Yes, Sir. 00:47:44
Thank you. Thank you, Commissioner. My name is Doug Roller. I'm the director for the Justice Services Department. 00:47:48
Thank you for the opportunity to recognize Miss Andrea Rush who's 20 years of service with the Whitwell County. Unfortunately, 00:47:54
Andrew couldn't be here today. Andrea works in our work release program on the facility which is just over the hill here. 00:48:01
She's a supervisor and she works the overnight shift, so she is asleep right now. So she regrets not being able to be here. But 00:48:09
we'll definitely give this on your behalf. Thank you very much. Thank you. 00:48:14
So next we have Information Technology with Ryan Rose. 00:48:25
Rodriguez, Leticia Daniel Teaching just this year, so she's a a movie to the IT team, but she was with the PA's office for the 00:48:39
previous night and a half years. She keeps us all moving in the right direction and she's probably one of the smartest folks in 00:48:46
the room right now because she's actually in Mexico on vacation, so. 00:48:53
I will make sure I give the pin to Latisha and I appreciate the great recognition of her service. 00:49:01
First up, we have facilities with Curtis Neibauer. Curtis, come on up. 00:49:13
I think. 00:49:29
I think most everybody here knows who Sterling is. If you've been around the county anytime at all, you know who he is. 00:49:33
Sterling started out in 1983 with the Sheriff's Department. 00:49:47
He. 00:49:52
Sheriff's Office, OK, I want to get that wrong. He worked for them for 32 years, left them and came to work for facilities. He's 00:49:54
been with us now for about 8 years. 00:49:58
He has a wealth of knowledge like no one I've ever known about the county. He knows basically everything there is to know. If you 00:50:05
got a question, this is the guy you. 00:50:09
I don't know how much longer he's going to be here, but I hope he stays a lot longer. That's going to be up to him. But when he 00:50:15
does leave, he's going to be missed very, very much. I can tell you that, Sheriff. Do you want to say anything? You probably know 00:50:20
him much, much better than I have. 00:50:25
So Sterling was my boss when I started in 1997. 00:50:36
And somehow, somehow, I still managed to keep a career. So it's your fault. 00:50:40
Australia been a great friend throughout the years. He's been a mentor. He spent leader. He was also my under sheriff for the last 00:50:47
year that he served at the Sheriff's Office. I don't know if that's coincidental is that is that why you are? 00:50:52
You promised me you could stay for one year and help me get my feet underneath me. I was a great under share, but more so. He's 00:51:00
been a great friend, good asset to the county. I hope you stick around for a long time, but 40 years is a long time. 00:51:05
Thank you. 00:51:11
All right. Next up is Public Works, Chris Hall. 00:51:23
Good morning, Commissioners. 00:51:48
Although quick, thank you for allowing us to celebrate these great employees and then we'll keep on the Public Works tradition. 00:51:51
We'll let their supervisor say a couple of things about them. So. 00:51:56
We'll start with you. 00:52:02
Ryan Aspen has been here 10 years. 00:52:08
One of the one of the things I first remember on his first job, it was Nick and Tuck to be able to bring the contract under 00:52:12
budget, but it came in one cent under budget. I'll never forget that. 00:52:17
But anyway, Ryan is is is not only a good employee for Wall County, but he keeps me grounded as well as he keeps his team 00:52:23
motivated and he he's an exceptional dedicated county employee and dedicated to his team. And for that, Ryan thank you very much. 00:52:31
Thank you, Mr. Allen, Commissioners, I'm going to present. 00:52:48
Mr. Robert Dean Shannon He's worked for the county for 10 years. I've had the pleasure of working with him all those ten years in 00:52:52
some form of fashion. He is a man of faith, a good family man and a pleasure to work with. I'm setting you up for the challenge to 00:52:57
be here for my 30th. 00:53:02
Thank you. 00:53:08
Good morning. 00:53:19
These men here, they're, they're working guys. They're the backbone of the infrastructure, keeping roads and bridges alive for 00:53:22
you, keeping everything passable out there. 00:53:26
So here we have Dave Davis. This is his 10 year anniversary, but Dave actually has closer to 15 years duty. 00:53:31
With Well County Road and. 00:53:39
These are quintessential blue collar working man. I mean, this guy will dive in. He's dove in with me and some icy cold waters to 00:53:42
help contractors. 00:53:46
Get stuck on stuck from out under bridges. 00:53:51
There's nothing he's not afraid to jump in and do and get the job done. 00:53:56
And beside him we have Dale Hill. 00:54:00
Bill. He was working for the old bridge crew out of LaSalle in the mid 1990s when I first started. 00:54:03
So he's been around a long time. He's got a great history. But Girl worked for Will County at the bridge crew. 00:54:09
Took a few years off, started his own business. 00:54:15
He's had pretty good success with that and it's going real good. He came back to work for us and he's now running both of those 00:54:18
businesses, working here and running the auction house. 00:54:22
So he's got more energy than probably anybody. 00:54:27
Jeff Garcia started here 2013. I guess it was 2012, 2012. 00:54:33
So he came on with the covert crew, did cattle guard work, that type of thing. He's moved himself up and. 00:54:40
2019 Jeff became true leader of our tree crew and he's really turned that around. He does a great job trimming trees all over the 00:54:48
county. 00:54:52
Deals with the citizens real. 00:54:57
Lee's fantastic work behind and really beautifies the county. 00:54:59
And down here on the end, almost to the end, we have Waylon Daniel. 00:55:05
Wayland Daniel I remember he started his little skinny Guy, little skinny kid and 2001 and here we are. He's just a nice little 00:55:11
skinny guy. But. 00:55:16
Yeah, Way when started in 2001 and became full time in 2005. 00:55:23
And he came with a great attitude. 00:55:28
He just always happy, willing to learn, and willing to put forth the extra effort. 00:55:33
He just promoted lead worker in 2015. 00:55:39
And actually, just this past year, he became Foreman in 2022. 00:55:42
So all you guys, thank you for your dedication. 00:55:47
Morning, Commissioners. 00:55:57
So I get to present this pin to Scott Dale for 20 years, but with that, I've gotten to work with all of these guys for their whole 00:56:01
career. It's been an honor to work with all of them. 00:56:08
They're, they're, they're, they're the foundation. 00:56:16
Of public works. So Scott, he can still work Royal County. In 1995 a seasonal employee worked that season and then and then took 00:56:19
off and then he returned in 2003 as a seasonal employee for the end of that year. I came full time. 00:56:28
And the road construction. 00:56:38
Which promoted rebirth in 2012 and then promoted department in 2015. 00:56:41
Earlier this year, Scott decided enough management for me right now. 00:56:48
So he wanted to go back and get a equipment operator. So earlier this year he transferred to the. 00:56:54
The other Rd. maintenance management division to go back to London Equipment. So that's how he wants to finish his career out. But 00:57:01
congratulations all you guys, pleasure working with y'all. I was really with construction supervisor, that's why Ron and myself 00:57:09
kind of split this stuff just a little bit. But anyway, thank you guys. Thank you. 00:57:16
So I get the pleasure of our of our 130 year employee of public Works, Mr. Dwayne, My bar, my Deputy Director of Operations. As he 00:57:31
said he was the supervisor of road and Bridge. Like a lot of us in Public Works, Dwayne started as a seasonal employee. 00:57:40
And work his way up. 00:57:50
To management. Some decided to step down a little bit sooner than others, but. 00:57:52
I mean it's been said here for a lot of the a lot of folks around here, there's I don't think when any of us started the county. 00:58:01
I'm talking to the Public Works folks right now. When we started at the county, I don't think we necessarily understood what we 00:58:10
were diving into, but what's kept all of these folks here and I'll say that for my entire team at Public Works and probably a lot 00:58:16
of the folks in Weld County in general, it's that hard of service that we talked about this morning. 00:58:23
They I don't think anybody really realizes it that everyone of these folks up here cares about the citizens in North County. 00:58:29
And how they go to and from whatever they need to go to and from for they. 00:58:37
They're they're interested in keeping the public safe and making sure they get where they need to go. 00:58:44
Where we're coming up on on a holiday here and there'll probably be a few of these folks I think are probably Christmas Eve, maybe 00:58:51
Christmas Day, be out there working so that people can get where they need to go and they stayed around through many of those. 00:58:58
Holidays that they've had to work because of that heart for service and I just. 00:59:06
Thank you to all of you for what you do, Dwayne. 00:59:10
My 30 year employee kind of epitomizes that. I mean what will we listen to? 00:59:14
For people that call in and talk to us about how horrible things are and. 00:59:21
And how we don't know what we're doing. I always get it as a as a supervisor in the Grandma Roads division that I hired the 42 00:59:27
employees that knew nothing about running the motor greater because everybody I talked to told me that they could run it better 00:59:33
than anyone of my employees. So. 00:59:39
But Dwayne, I said he he started here as a seasonal employees worked his way up. I greatly appreciate everything he does for for 00:59:46
me and for the citizens of Wales County and your service is greatly appreciated Sir. Thank you. 00:59:53
Thank you. Thanks. 01:00:12
Jamie Ulrich, our Director at the Department of Human Services for her presentations. 01:00:17
All right. We have some great people here that we want to recognize. We're going to have you organize in 10/20/30 and we do need a 01:00:31
40 year person up here as well. 01:00:39
Going to set this down for a moment. 01:00:49
All right. As we're as we're gathering, I did want to let everyone know I'm going to be very brief this morning because if you 01:00:57
know anything about Human Services. 01:01:01
You know, we love to party. So we are having a party this afternoon called Cheers for years. And at that party, each of these 01:01:06
individuals will get more specific and individualized recognition from their supervisors. And we really get a chance to take some 01:01:13
really dedicated time to appreciate all the work that you do. But I do want to take to take to those opportunities to to introduce 01:01:20
all these wonderful folks and share some great, great aspects of their work with the county. We're going to start down there at 01:01:27
the far end. That's Barb Wood. 01:01:34
Is one of our CSS workers in Fort Lupton. We had the pleasure of recognizing Barb just two days ago here at the board meeting for 01:01:42
her retirement as well. So she's 10 years and her retirement bar is just an amazing employee. She's so dedicated to the work that 01:01:50
we do. And as I said at her retirement, she is such a positive force, has a lot of good energy and amazing laugh and saves all the 01:01:58
copiers from being hit with a baseball bat, as Commissioner Ross mentioned the other day. 01:02:06
Congratulations. Next we have Claudia Carbajal, who is our migrant seasonal farm worker, Ashworks, our Employment Services 01:02:15
division. This is just such a unique and specialized position that Claudia does and she does. She does this work truly out of a 01:02:23
heart for service for the population that she serves. So Claudia is out making sure that the migrant sees my farm workers have the 01:02:31
work conditions they need in order to perform their jobs within the law and then also helps. 01:02:39
Agricultural employers. 01:02:48
Get the the employees that they need so that they can keep keep everything going. Claudia does an amazing job and she also hosts 01:02:50
Migrant Seasonal Picnic every year where she solicits donations and gift cards so that we can help honor those that are doing that 01:02:57
very, very hard work. So thank you for being here and congratulations. 01:03:04
Unemployment services division as well. She's a case manager and she's had a couple different positions with us over the years, 01:03:16
but most recently she's really specializing in the veterans population. So we have through our program, we assign all of our. 01:03:25
All of our veterans to one person so that they can really get that specialized service and that person is Carla. She has found a 01:03:35
tremendous passion for working with the veteran population and is going to work tremendously with our new VSO office that has just 01:03:41
moved over. Super excited about that. Carla has a bright spirit and a welcoming personality. Congratulations Carla, for all you 01:03:47
do. 01:03:52
Next we have for 10 years Leslie Belinda Leslie is a youth worker and unemployment services division, a youth case manager. Leslie 01:04:02
has again a passion. I keep saying passion that that truly is what we always folks have for working with the youth in our 01:04:09
community, helping them get the skills that they need to become employed when they are ready to go out into the world and and 01:04:16
overcome maybe some of the barriers that they've experienced. 01:04:23
She was strong advocate for those youth and we really appreciate that. Leslie also coordinates all of our efforts around Project 01:04:31
Connect over here. She's done so for many, many years. And I don't know how you do that because it's like hurting cats, trying to 01:04:36
get, you know, volunteers from the department all organize what you do, a tremendous job. And we thank you for all of your work. 01:04:42
Thank you. 01:04:48
And then you have Patty, Patty Wolf. Patty again has had a few different positions within employment services over her ten years. 01:04:58
Patty currently is a disability program navigator and works really hard with our disabled population to be able to help them 01:05:07
upskill and get new skills so that they can become employed as as well as matching employers with these highly skilled folks. 01:05:16
Really just bridging that gap for for that particular population, it does take you know a special, a special person to be able to 01:05:26
do that and Patty uses her tenacity and perseverance to really make an impact in the lives of all of those clients and and people 01:05:32
that we serve. So thank you, Patty. 01:05:38
Next. 01:05:49
Next we have done Haley. Doug would really rather be anywhere else in the world than here right now. 01:05:52
But I need to come because dog is Doug. I don't, I don't really know what your title clinical care supervisor. But really what his 01:05:59
job is, is he is the backbone of the child welfare division judge supervisors, our mental health experts and our placement team 01:06:07
and does the person that is working day and night 24/7 to to secure placements for our youth. 01:06:15
When we have no options, I don't know how. I really don't. I always say you like to live on the edge, Doug. And he's like, I 01:06:25
really don't because that's the nature of the job. He's there Friday night at 5:00 when everyone else is going home and he's 01:06:30
trying to figure out where we're going to place these kids. So, Doug, thank you for coming, number one, but most importantly, 01:06:36
thank you for all of the work that you do. 01:06:41
Moving on, we have Susie Will Susie here for her twenty year pin as Susie works in our child support division and has worked there 01:06:52
the entire 20 years. In fact, I think you've had the same case load nearly the entire 20 years which really builds a lot of 01:06:58
continuity when you're looking with with those clients. But Susan Lawyer has done a great job kind of stepping out of that way 01:07:05
over the last few years and has been. 01:07:12
The bridge between child support and employment services. 01:07:19
And really working with non custodial parents in gaining skills so that they can become employed and then with those child support 01:07:22
payments. But really that bridging that gap has been so helpful for many, many people and you were very instrumental in doing all 01:07:28
of that. So congratulations and thank you Susie. 01:07:34
Nancy Sanchez, also one of those that. 01:07:45
Had to twist around with you here because Nancy don't really care for public recognition, recognition, but we really wanted to 01:07:49
recognize you publicly. Nancy's getting her 30 European today, which is amazing. 01:07:55
Nancy, I didn't know this, but start out in Head Start originally when you came to Wall County, but since then has worked 01:08:02
exclusively in employment services since then and has I I don't even know how many hundreds or thousands of people. 01:08:10
You have helped gain employment in your 30 years, but I'm sure it is really up there. 01:08:18
Nancy, you are a faithful servant of Weld County. You just put your head down and work and we so appreciate that and you always do 01:08:24
what is best for the clients. So again, thank you for being here, but most importantly, thank you for your 30 years. 01:08:31
Smaller star tree, our party where person. So we have three of those today. That's amazing. Morris is crying and so I'm not going 01:08:44
to look at her. 01:08:49
Because I've known my life. I know my life for the 27 years that I've worked at Wallace County. I know her family. I know her 01:08:56
personally. She is a wonderful person. 01:09:00
I thought you said you were gonna cry. I know. 01:09:06
So my room has been through the Human Services directors in for 30 years. Nobody else can say that, really. I mean, everybody 01:09:10
remembers Judy Grover, but who is before Judy Grogo? Milos knows. 01:09:17
Mario has had over 16 supervisors since she's worked for the county. Miles actually retired and State retired, I don't know, for 5 01:09:26
minutes and then has been back as a working retiree for the last 18 years. 01:09:33
Morris is hurt. I just. I can't even. I could go on and on and on. But one thing I want to say about my list is. 01:09:40
Her attention to detail and her commitment to making sure everything is done correctly is so admirable. She is currently working 01:09:49
in the Fiscal Office. She's had many positions over the years and to have you know that is such a a detail oriented position and 01:09:56
nourished his dives in and gets the work done. 01:10:03
I, my daughter and I used to go scrapbooking at Mario's house on the weekends and you know, I'd be like throwing pictures on the 01:10:10
page and wireless is scrapbooks were like so amazing. She's just a very detailed person. She she cares a lot about the work that 01:10:17
we do here at Weld County. That's why she's been here for 40 years. And I just love her. She's wonderful. And Marla, this is for 01:10:24
you. 01:10:31
Here's your challenge coin and your jacket. 01:10:39
Now I did want to say one more thing. We are missing 110 year person Kimberly from the Kimberly Davis from the single entry point. 01:10:51
She's getting her 10 year pin. She wasn't able to make it today but she you know she's done a great job with our older population 01:10:58
and helping them stay, feel to stay and thrive and live in their homes. 01:11:05
By providing them the support that they need, we will recognize Kimberly Cheers for yours because we like to party. 01:11:14
But I wanted to mention her today, and I'm going to pass it off to. 01:11:19
I have the honor today of presenting A10 year pin to two of my attorneys from DHS. They're being shy right now and they need to 01:11:23
come up here. 01:11:29
Both of these attorneys are good at what they do. 01:11:38
They both are in our child welfare department with DHS. 01:11:43
Child Walter Lawyering is tough. 01:11:50
You see a lot of stuff that you don't want to see again. 01:11:55
But you have to deal with it, and they do it about as as good as anyone in the state of Colorado. 01:12:00
I had the pleasure of if Mr. District Attorney was here, he'd say he stole them from me. 01:12:07
Which they came They both started in 2013 or 2013. 01:12:17
Yeah, 2013 and we're the DA's office. 01:12:22
At the same time, it was in the spring of 2013. 01:12:28
And Tammy had risen to the level of Chief Deputy in the DA's office. And then we are fortunate to have her come over to our shop 01:12:32
in 2013, in February of 2013. 01:12:40
Tate came over in 2018 and then became our lead attorney, doing DHS child welfare welfare work in earlier this year. 01:12:49
Both of them do great work and I'd like to go ahead and honor them with this pen. One thing I'd like to say about tape is that 01:13:04
I've been so impressed. 01:13:10
With her ability to organize the. 01:13:15
And to make it run smoothly, because there are a lot of moving parts, not only with the paralegals that are working on stuff, but 01:13:19
also the attorneys and trying to cover all of the things that need to be done. So I especially appreciate Tate's work. She does it 01:13:26
as good as as anyone. 01:13:33
Thank you. 01:13:41
Well, I just want to thank everybody for congratulations for all your service World County. Thank you so much. 01:13:50

Mitigation Grant for Steam Gauge. 01:24:45
Alert and Warning Station Project and authorize Office of Emergency Management to submit electronically with Emergency Management. 01:24:51
The request he had before you is an electronic grant. 01:24:58
Request to submit electronic grant. This is a hazard mitigation project. It's a 7525% grant, so we have a 25% match for that 01:25:07
grant. This will go to the state and then submit it to FEMA to expand on our stream warning gauge alert system that we have. So 01:25:16
it'll be an expansion. It's not a new project, but it'll be adding additional stream gauges along the rivers that we don't have. 01:25:25
Basically real time notification on that. So total project is 49,380. 01:25:36

Actually it's a, it's not the full grant application, it's actually the scope of work that we're submitting to the state. The 01:26:17
state is actually submitting the application for several counties to complete updates to the their hazard mitigation plans. It's a 01:26:22
FEMA requirement for each county to have a mitigation plan And so the application process is actually coming up a little bit 01:26:28
early. Our plan actually expires the end of 26. 01:26:34
But because of the grant cycle and the time that will that it will take to complete the plan development or the update to our 01:26:41
plan. 01:26:44
We're requesting to submit the application now, so the document that you have for you is actually the scope work with an estimated 01:26:47
estimated cost for matching dollars for us. 01:26:52
Is $25,145.00. 01:27:00
During the pass around memo there was a, there was a question of whether or not what that amount that would look like, but we'll 01:27:06

Good morning, Comm. 01:30:45
Here with Public Works and Don Anderson with Department of Planning Services and when we submitted our memo at the time we had not 01:30:48
received any comments. We've. 01:30:53
Yesterday received comments regarding the code changes. So for second reading we do not have any proposed code changes for your 01:30:59
consideration, but we will take the comments that we have received. 01:31:04
Under advisement and look to address them with you, we did receive them from AG professionals. We have two comments, one related 01:31:10
to permits for grading permit and our addition of written documentation from outside agencies for grading permits. 01:31:19
Say what that demonstration looks like, but if that's the direction that we'd like to go, we can talk about that. 01:31:58
The other comment was based on emergency access and again, we look at those on a case by case basis. Obviously we've got multiple 01:32:05
fire districts that all have a different opinion of what emergency access looks like. 01:32:11
We did say that for clarification. At a minimum, it seems like many of them want Knox Box equipment attached to emergency 01:32:18
accesses, so we were trying to recognize what that could be. So we have emergency accesses in commercial areas and residential 01:32:24
areas. They don't all. 01:32:30
One size doesn't fit all and so we're just trying to say if you're going to have a gate and it will be gated that you need to 01:32:36
include Knox box. 01:32:40
The criteria. So again, we're open to conversation about what these comments would be and are happy to try and address that for 01:32:45
third reading for you. 01:32:49
OK, what have any questions? 01:32:53
OK, this is public hearing. Is everybody in the audience who wish to come forward and discuss Code Orders 2023-16? 01:32:56
OK, so you know public comment. I will close that and bring it back to the board. Mr. Chair, I move to approve on second reading 01:33:03

County Code. Second we moved by to Mr. Ross second by Commissioner James to approve on second reading Colonos 2023-16. 01:33:17

math. She promoted through the office to her current position as a District Court secretary. She was promoted to that position in 00:15:49
June 2016. 00:15:54
And as I was going through a fire, as you would expect, you see great review after great review. But what I really wanted to do 00:16:00
was share with you all and the audience some of the comments that her attorneys made about her as I was talking to them yesterday. 00:16:05
Leticia, probably the greatest asset a deputy DA can have. She's extremely diligent, intelligent and hard working team member who 00:16:10
puts out fires with the best of them. 00:16:15
Congratulations. 00:16:50
I told him I was going to try to start a new tradition of commissioners meeting and have every recipient say a few words on behalf 00:16:58
of the PIN, just to try to keep you all here till 5. 00:17:02
I would also like to acknowledge Michael Mickey Paralia. Mickey has been with our office since January of 2013. He was first hired 00:17:08
as a Deputy District Attorney and then very shortly after that promoted to Chief Deputy. 00:17:14
Because he is truly one of the most skilled and talented attorneys in my office, he's also one of the most trusted in my office. 00:17:20
Just this year, Nikki has tried and obtained convictions in a money money laundering case. 00:17:27
A very complex wire, wiretap, conspiracy to distribute controlled substances, and 1st degree murder. 00:17:34
Last year, attempted murder of a police officer out of Fort Lupt. 00:17:40
First degree murder, Conspiracy to commit distribute distribution of a controlled substance. Starting to get the idea? 00:17:44
Mickey is is absolutely a trusted colleague, a trusted friend. I love working with him every day and he is an enormous advocate, 00:17:52
both on behalf of our office and on this county. So, Vicki, I want to congratulate you for 10 years of service. I'm looking 00:17:57
forward to at least, hopefully five more years. How about that? 00:18:02
Lastly, I want to publicly acknowledge Julie Cedar who is a Legal Secretary Supervisor in my office. She is receiving her twenty 00:18:13
year pin today. She couldn't make it today, but I wanted to thank the commissioners on her behalf. So on behalf of the day's 00:18:19
office, thank you very much. I have to go to court to help defend the honor of the Sheriff again. 00:18:24
What County Essential Brenda Jones. 00:18:38
Come on up, Brenda. 00:18:41
Me too. It's always such a pleasure to be here recognizing the greatest asset of Wells County, which is our employee. 00:18:53
All of our employees are are the reason why Weld County is successful. I have the honor today of recognizing Josh Geltenbaum. Josh 00:19:03
works. He started with us 10 years and 10 months ago. 00:19:10
Commitment to always doing it well, to doing it right. He has an ability he works with. I don't even know how many. Hundreds, at 00:19:59
least thousands, probably of developers for 31 cities, one county. They're all doing their work differently. 00:20:06
OK, well, County Clerk and Reporter Carly Coppolas, come on up, Carly. 00:21:02
Good morning. I am Curly Confessable. Can I start a recorder? And it is my extinct honor to celebrate 3 ladies. Two of them are 00:21:20
with us today on 10 years of achievement here at the Treasury Court's office, in particular the Motor Vehicle Department. First, 00:21:26
other women should give them a round of applause for surviving that. 00:21:31
Her name is Christina. We all are. 00:21:43
And Katie here is down in the Southwest office, so she's very familiar with mom. 00:21:45
And she's also very glad to hear that Mom is going to still be there a couple days, and I am as well, because Kiki's a little bit 00:21:53
of fun. 00:21:56
One thing that in the motor vehicle world that is a huge asset is not only ability to be extremely friendly and professional with 00:22:01
the public, but also to keep the atmospheric light. It can be very daunting, especially when you get to tell people how much their 00:22:08
check is going to have to wait out for it and she has had the ability to. 00:22:15
Tell you that price and still have you leave with a smile. 00:22:22
She also has a little bit of fun with TikTok as well, so she's a little bit of a tick tock star in the motor vehicle world in Del 00:22:27
Camino, which is just again, how much fun and lightheartedness she continues to bring every single day to the motor vehicle 00:22:32
offices up to me now. 00:22:37
So I want to thank you for always being the the fun, uplifting spirit when things get daunting. We know Dan Delk. We know Kiki is 00:22:44
going to make sure that everybody is going to continue to arrive with a smile, both the employees and the public, but also leave 00:22:51
with one as well. And she is really a foundational member of the Del Camino office that makes sure that not only the public, but 00:22:59
her teammates and her manager and Rudy and myself have a very good day. And she made sure that she leaves everybody with a smile. 00:23:06
Her, she's gonna get a little, I know she's she's gonna get a little emotional, but. 00:23:14
But you deserve every single accolade and I hope you truly understand how important the past 10 years, your dedication, you've 00:23:21
working through all the different things that we've had to work through and it just continuing to be a shining star down in the, 00:23:26
you know and the public loves you down there. And we're so appreciated that you represent not as well county, but us to the public 00:23:32
so well, so thank you. 00:23:37
This is a Nancy. She works in the Greeley motor vehicle office. Nancy and I have a little bit of a unique history together. We 00:23:49
actually went through motor vehicle training together. So we got to build our motor vehicle knowledge together 10 years ago and it 00:23:55
was just fantastic to be able to see her drive and passion so early on in that moment with her having that dedication of learning, 00:24:01
all the complexity and challenges that are in motor vehicles and really seeing a very bright star of leadership in her at that 00:24:08
moment in time. 00:24:14
And that's why we are so proud to continue to invest in her. Because again, when she comes into the office, she has just a calm, a 00:24:56
strong demeanor to herself and she just makes sure that every single person is served really well. Now that she's in the 00:25:02
leadership role, she really makes sure that every single one of her coworkers feels comfortable coming and asking her questions. 00:25:08
She's constantly learning and improving on her knowledge with her vehicle. She's now actually representing Low County on a state 00:25:14
board. 00:25:19
So I'm really proud that she's been accepted and appointed to that. So she is also, you know, representing Love County at that 00:25:26
state level too. And I couldn't think of a better person to have on there making sure that they understand just how strong Will 00:25:32
County is, especially pushing back on some fun State stuff. And she's she does it just so well and so elegantly and so thank you 00:25:38
so very much for 10 years and I can't wait to continue to see where your leadership role keeps you going over the next ten, 2037 00:25:44
years. 00:25:50
That's right. Thank you so very much. 00:25:58
OK, Sheriff Steve Rings. 00:26:08
Thank you. 00:26:12
That if possible. 00:26:17
We have got a few people to recognize today. We're going to start with the 10 year folks for the people that have been here for 10 00:26:22
years. I guess everybody has tenure for a little while. We'll try out Dale Rd. 00:26:27
Come on up, buddy. 00:26:35
Christopher, Kevin. 00:26:39
Grady Nicholson. 00:26:42
And Jared? 00:26:45
I'm gonna list off the others that are on the list that I don't think you we have Gregory Schneider, Brian Horton, Spencer Rozier, 00:26:46
Alejandra Scooter. 00:26:51
Casper Marcheska and Kiara Lynch, that's eleven people who hit the 10 year mark with the wealth County Sheriff's Office. That's 00:26:56
that's not a it's not an easy easy task for a lot of reasons. But working at the Sheriff's Office I think ages you in dog years, 00:27:04
which you can tell. But I just want to go around and kind of highlight each one of these folks. Chris is one of our new guys in 00:27:11
our school resource officer program and it just had a little short tenure up at Johnson. We've got a lot of good feedback. 00:27:19
The kids love him. They call him Deputy Chris. They hug him and chase him all over the school. He plays basketball and I think 00:27:27
dodgeball sometimes with him, hopefully easy on him. 00:27:31
Very well received so far. It's coming from trying to put Christmas lights on your house and fall off again this year, so he's in 00:27:37
a little safer zone up in the school, but his service is greatly appreciated. 00:27:43
Next to him is Dale Rosebrook, Bill, one of our detectives. He's also a polygraph examiner. So he sees some of the worst of the 00:27:49
worst. He's working the, the, the, the nasty calls. No one wants to know the long county solving those cases but also doing a lot 00:27:55
of pre employment polygraph and some criminal polygraph tests to make sure that all the people accountable hearing from the county 00:28:00
as well. 00:28:05
And if you're a polygraph, that's not an easy task either. That's a 10 week school, a lot of investment in that process. And then 00:28:11
you also have to do all those tests to keep up, keep up with what you're doing. Dale's been an excellent, excellent addition to 00:28:17
our agency 10 years seems like it's kind of like just like that, but I'm sure you got a lot more years in here. 00:28:23
And next to him is Marcia Mueller. She's one of our sergeants in the jail. 00:28:30
Is a motor. She is constantly moving, constantly going out and interacting with folks, making sure the jail is running the right 00:28:34
way. 00:28:38
And one of the things about Faustina is really interesting. When we have a briefing when a new shift is going on, she's not 00:28:41
interacting with all the troops, kind of seeing what's going on in their family lives. Because it's more than just what goes on 00:28:47
day-to-day, It's knowing your troops. Plus, Nina's an excellent example of what leadership looks like at Sheriff's Office. 00:28:52
Thanks to her great Nicholson, Grady's like combat ready all the time. 00:28:58
Anywhere Mandolero and just general kind of ******. 00:29:04
We're always ready for, always ready for the big one. He's been on some big ones. He's been involved in a in a officer, involved 00:29:10
shooting, came out good on the other side. But Grady's just an example of what what a good cop is. He knows how to go out and 00:29:16
catch the bad guy. He knows how to hold people accountable. 00:29:21
And he's a model of what a cop should be. 00:29:27
There is also a Sergeant in Brazil administration now he said that when you have a problem you can't figure out how to solve it. 00:29:32
He's going to take things apart and really look at things in detail and and really did take a deep dive and figure out how do we 00:29:39
fix the long term issue. Jared's been a great addition to our team. He came to us with some experience, worked his way up through 00:29:45
the hill ranks and he's he's done a great service to our agency. 00:29:52
So all these guys and gals deserve your round of applause for your 10 years of service. Thank you. 00:29:59
Next on the list I haven't seen coming out that I may have missed you, Thomas Gray. 00:30:10
He's up for a 20 year pin. He might be working, I'm not sure. Well, just a few words on TomTom Bill with the agency. Obviously 20 00:30:16
years. He started as a detention staff. He worked as an FTO in the jail and then due to some some medical issues went into our 00:30:22
master control division. He still served there very well and in his off time he's one hell of a foster parent. He raises a lot of 00:30:29
kids that are kind of in trouble. He's got a great addition to our agency and he's just a good member of the community. 00:30:35
Then we have a couple of 30 Europeans. I'll say their names out loud. I don't know if you remember here, Pat Castle. She's also a 00:30:43
master control operator. 00:30:47
She and I started in the master control division almost the same time. She actually doesn't like public recognition, so I knew she 00:30:51
wasn't going to be here. 00:30:55
He's one of our courts guys again, 30 year employment. You may see Van around. He comes to a lot of agency events. He's got the, 00:31:00
he's called magic sheet, he's going through some medical issues, had some prosthetics, but never slowed him down. He's always 00:31:07
continued to work for the Sheriff's Office. Been a great, great employee for 30 years. 00:31:14
And again, he's he's not one that necessarily seeks public accolades, so I'm not surprised. I'm not sure. Last but not least. 00:31:21
We have a a really unique situation. We have a 40 year employee. 00:31:29
It's so unique that the county doesn't even have a pin for a 40. 00:31:34
So they had to say, well, what else can we come up with? 00:31:39
1983 wow. 00:31:54
That's a long time. 00:31:57
For 40 years, because there's not necessarily a pin that gets awarded for 40 years. Elected to award you a coat and I hear if you 00:31:59
make it until 50, you get a car. 00:32:03
Wait a minute. 00:32:12
What was popular in 1983? 00:32:19
I was there too. 00:32:23
Mario Brothers, the video game, had just been invented. 00:32:27
Sally Ride. 00:32:31
American woman to go into space. 00:32:33
Remember that. 00:32:35
Michael Jackson's Thriller album was #1 on the charts. You still listen to that? No. The match had a final episode on TV. 00:32:38
And last but not least, the Internet was born. 00:32:46
So no one has been around for a long time. She's seen a lot of history, not just that in the world, but at the Sheriff's Office. I 00:32:50
can't imagine how many inmates you've seen come and go. I certainly can't imagine how many employees you've seen come and go. The 00:32:55
Normans, been that rock. She's been a constant. 00:33:00
She's been there so long, I believe you set the record for the longest serving employee at the Weld County Sheriff's Office. 00:33:05
Here in the crowd, so Eli ready to put your hand up there. 00:33:21
40 years in any place is a long time, but normally you definitely deserve another round of applause. 00:33:32
Wow. 00:33:53
Excellent job everyone. Thank you. 00:33:56
Oh, Cortana. 00:34:01
Recording this first one is Accounting, Chris. 00:34:08
Yeah, come on up. 00:34:16
100% I'm expecting a 10 year pin on behalf of John in the planning department. 00:34:22
Your husband with us for about a year, but she has been accounting for over the 10 years, the first nine years that she's trying 00:34:33
to treasurers office. 00:34:37
So I reached out to Treasurer, see if they had anything you want to say about Johnny and what came back is exactly what you see 00:34:42
from John. 00:34:45
She's a perfect example of a county, but she's helpful, willing to do whatever always wanted to learn. 00:34:50
We're just really happy to have done on our team. It's 15 years. 00:34:59
Human resources, Jill. 00:35:09
Well, I have the pleasure of giving Michelle her 30 year pin. 00:35:25
How is everybody here? Tell Joe Michelle once or twice in their career here at Wells County, but 30 years ago, an amazing career 00:35:34
that she's had here. She started as a receptionist. 00:35:39
And the team had about 3:00 to 4:00 employees. The team is now growing with the needs of the county, and so she's doing a lot. She 00:35:44
tells them almost every functional area of human resources. 00:35:48
She has been a tremendous resource for me and friends and confidant as I transition to my role. 00:35:53
I think we accomplished each other quite well with her historical perspective of my new wild ideas. 00:35:59
But I really appreciate everything she's outside County and congratulations on her. Thank you. 00:36:07
You're welcome. I do have to say that I do have the best team now. So if you do have call HR, all of us can help you. Any of us 00:36:18
can help you because I have the best teams, so. 00:36:24
Good morning, Bridget Grimm, County Treasurer. 00:36:56
I have recently joined the county about six months ago, so I have asked Renee to speak on behalf of almost 10 years. 00:37:00
Thank you. So we're so lucky and blessed and happy to have Arma as a 10 year employee in the treasurer's office. She is amazing. 00:37:10
She will step in and work on any project. She comes to us with new ideas, which is awesome because that way we can be innovative 00:37:17
and make changes in the office. She's that perfect person to look at the front counter and see what needs to be done, what would 00:37:24
make a better. 00:37:31
Interaction with the public. No one wants to come in and pay their taxes. 00:37:39
People with a smile. She helps people in both English and in Spanish. She is fluent, so that's very helpful for a lot of people 00:37:44
who are coming in, have a lot of questions and just don't know exactly you know where to go. She has helped people even from other 00:37:51
offices because she is so fluent and can tell them go to this department or speak to this person. She is now also our remittance 00:37:58
processor. 00:38:05
For all of the checks that come through our office. So that's millions and millions and millions of dollars. 00:38:12
She can look at transactions and quickly decide exactly how they should be posted. She is an expert on mobile home. She is an 00:38:19
expert on customer service, but she's an expert on everything really, and we are so happy to have her in our office for 10 years. 00:38:26
We hope we get many, many more years. So we thank you so much for your service to our office and to the entire county home. 00:38:34
Thank you. 00:38:42
Even though I've only had six months with Honor, the one consistent thing that I've so appreciated about her is the wonderful 00:38:49
energy that she brings. 00:38:54
To us internally and to our taxpayers, thank you, Alma. We appreciate you. 00:38:59
OK, Public environmental health, Jason. 00:39:13
Come on up, health department staff. My name is Jason Cheshire. I'm the. I guess I can still call myself a new executive director. 00:39:30
I've got 10 months now, so I've got a ways to go to get in the world. I'm going to let the department heads introduce their staff, 00:39:35
but I want to say. 00:39:40
It's great to recognize these milestones of. 00:39:46
But I hope that each of you, especially the two that have been here 30 years, consider the impact that you've had on the county, 00:39:51
the number of lives that you had a positive impact on over the course for you, all 30 years, 10s of thousands of people go down. 00:39:57
So thank you for your service. Thank you for choosing the local county. 00:40:03
I talked loud. I want to introduce Sylvia, who's getting her twenty year pin, which the math is a little fuzzy on that because 00:40:11
she's only 29, so. 00:40:15
But no, Sylvia stated through our department, she's. 00:40:21
Covered a lot of divisions over her career. We're happy to have her back in the age family. She is responsible for keeping us on 00:40:26
track with our decorations. She keeps us, you know, Valentine's Day, Christmas. She's got it down. But she always freaks and 00:40:33
smile. She's always just a wonderful presence and it's just great to have right here and right next to her S and she's been with 00:40:41
us for 10 years. She's in our lab and she just brings kind of a levity to our group. That's worth describing the *****. 00:40:48
We have to have in our group and it just is great to have her on a team and I'm just happy to have both of you be part of our 00:40:56
organizations. Thank you. 00:41:00
Hi Sean, may I work at clinical community health solution dresser Aurora and Isabel over here. These give legs over here. And I 00:41:06
started the county about 3 1/2 years ago during the pandemic and I have to tell you these these two ladies took me under their 00:41:13
wings. They they caught me a lot. They showed me a lot, just incredible patience, incredible pride in working for well county and 00:41:21
working for the health department. 00:41:28
Jason says The number of people that that they have touched their lives and changed their life and particularly what they do 00:41:36
directly or indirectly, how to be 10s of thousands. 00:41:40
Truly remarkable people have a heart for service, and I just appreciate working with them. They have made me better. They make us 00:41:47
better. And you know, I know that. 00:41:53
Laura is going to be retiring in the new year. 00:42:00
Well deserved and and look forward to celebrating that as well. 00:42:04
I've offered her, Commissioner James, the opportunity to that volunteer program that you're running. 00:42:08
I let her know about that. Anyway, just wanted to recognize them. I really appreciate the opportunity for the board to recognize 00:42:13
these two really deserving employees. 00:42:17
Well, just lastly, I want to recognize Heidi Musil for 20 years of service and I want to just echo. 00:42:29
All the lives that she has touched my name, by the way, Zurich, Ockham. We're the Health, Education, Communication, Planning 00:42:37
Division. 00:42:40
And Heidi has been with us for 20 years doing positive, healthy behaviors in schools and with her too, There has to be 10s of 00:42:43
thousands of youth who have been positively impacted by her work and the results of her work and her passion probably won't bear 00:42:50
fruit for or are probably bearing fruit right now, but will continue to bear fruit for years and years and continue with with 00:42:58
their families and so. 00:43:06
Want to thank you for your 20 years of service and all the work you've done on. 00:43:14
Positive youth development within our schools and with you young people and youth. And I also want to thank John, her husband. 00:43:19
He's here today too. John, just give a wave in the back there. So again, thank you so much, 20 years. 00:43:26
County has a lot to be thankful for for your service and thank you for working with us here at the health department. You do make 00:43:34
us a better place, so thank you. 00:43:38
With that moving along to Commissioner Perry Buck, Yes. And I'm just looking for Tina Powell come to the stage. Come on down, 00:43:49
girl. 00:43:54
So I was, I've been privileged and absolutely honored to be the coordinator for Dispatch. And I don't know if you all know, but I 00:44:01
love ride alongs. And so I got to do a ride along in the Dispatch. 00:44:06
Saw the commotion with a huge accident. Good to see you again. And there was an attempted suicide where they had opinions phone to 00:44:13
find out where he was and there was a someone watching a neighbor's house getting burglarized. It was absolute chaos. I don't know 00:44:20
how you all do it on the other side of the cubicle someone was giving CPR and I just want you to know that this batch is a 00:44:27
certain. 00:44:33
Place for special, special talented people that can interact with people when their lives are probably. 00:44:40
Really it could be in the most tragic place. And Tina Rosa Raju has been with us for 10 years and when I asked her, you know, is 00:44:49
this what you saw yourself doing? And she said. 00:44:55
I don't think I've ever seen myself do anything different. So it does take a very special person to do what you do. And we are so 00:45:01
honored and so blessed to have you. 00:45:06
Thank you. 00:45:11
And we really appreciate being here and celebrating these milestones for our people. So our group is a little bit different. So 00:45:19
everybody up here plus a few more. 00:45:23
We all share exactly the same 10 year anniversary, so prior to 2013. 00:45:27
Our center was managed by the City of Greeley and so around I think it was September 2nd of 2013, the county. 00:45:34
Assumed control of the center, so all of us are at our tenure with accounting. 00:45:41
But one thing I think is important to mention is. 00:45:46
I just wanted to share with you guys their actual years of. 00:45:52
Everybody up here has been here for a very long time. 00:45:55
And so I just want to run through these really quick and share it with the board. As I share it with the board, if you guys can 00:45:58
raise your hand so they know which one you are. 00:46:02
Lori Filer, 24 years. 00:46:06

And they they just continue to answer the call, their.com voice when you need them. And so I'm humbled every day and honored to 00:46:51
work with every one of them. So thank you. 00:46:56
And I just want to make a quick comment. I was actually here in 2013 when you brought dispatch over from Greeley to us. You guys 00:47:02
have done a phenomenal job with that center. Congratulations and thank you guys every day. 00:47:08
And now we will have Doug Eller with Justice Services. 00:47:28
Come on down. 00:47:32
Yes, Sir. 00:47:44
Thank you. Thank you, Commissioner. My name is Doug Roller. I'm the director for the Justice Services Department. 00:47:48
Thank you for the opportunity to recognize Miss Andrea Rush who's 20 years of service with the Whitwell County. Unfortunately, 00:47:54
Andrew couldn't be here today. Andrea works in our work release program on the facility which is just over the hill here. 00:48:01
She's a supervisor and she works the overnight shift, so she is asleep right now. So she regrets not being able to be here. But 00:48:09
we'll definitely give this on your behalf. Thank you very much. Thank you. 00:48:14
So next we have Information Technology with Ryan Rose. 00:48:25
Rodriguez, Leticia Daniel Teaching just this year, so she's a a movie to the IT team, but she was with the PA's office for the 00:48:39
previous night and a half years. She keeps us all moving in the right direction and she's probably one of the smartest folks in 00:48:46
the room right now because she's actually in Mexico on vacation, so. 00:48:53
I will make sure I give the pin to Latisha and I appreciate the great recognition of her service. 00:49:01
First up, we have facilities with Curtis Neibauer. Curtis, come on up. 00:49:13
I think. 00:49:29
I think most everybody here knows who Sterling is. If you've been around the county anytime at all, you know who he is. 00:49:33
Sterling started out in 1983 with the Sheriff's Department. 00:49:47
He. 00:49:52
Sheriff's Office, OK, I want to get that wrong. He worked for them for 32 years, left them and came to work for facilities. He's 00:49:54
been with us now for about 8 years. 00:49:58
He has a wealth of knowledge like no one I've ever known about the county. He knows basically everything there is to know. If you 00:50:05
got a question, this is the guy you. 00:50:09
I don't know how much longer he's going to be here, but I hope he stays a lot longer. That's going to be up to him. But when he 00:50:15
does leave, he's going to be missed very, very much. I can tell you that, Sheriff. Do you want to say anything? You probably know 00:50:20
him much, much better than I have. 00:50:25
So Sterling was my boss when I started in 1997. 00:50:36
And somehow, somehow, I still managed to keep a career. So it's your fault. 00:50:40
Australia been a great friend throughout the years. He's been a mentor. He spent leader. He was also my under sheriff for the last 00:50:47
year that he served at the Sheriff's Office. I don't know if that's coincidental is that is that why you are? 00:50:52
You promised me you could stay for one year and help me get my feet underneath me. I was a great under share, but more so. He's 00:51:00
been a great friend, good asset to the county. I hope you stick around for a long time, but 40 years is a long time. 00:51:05
Thank you. 00:51:11
All right. Next up is Public Works, Chris Hall. 00:51:23
Good morning, Commissioners. 00:51:48
Although quick, thank you for allowing us to celebrate these great employees and then we'll keep on the Public Works tradition. 00:51:51
We'll let their supervisor say a couple of things about them. So. 00:51:56
We'll start with you. 00:52:02
Ryan Aspen has been here 10 years. 00:52:08
One of the one of the things I first remember on his first job, it was Nick and Tuck to be able to bring the contract under 00:52:12
budget, but it came in one cent under budget. I'll never forget that. 00:52:17
But anyway, Ryan is is is not only a good employee for Wall County, but he keeps me grounded as well as he keeps his team 00:52:23
motivated and he he's an exceptional dedicated county employee and dedicated to his team. And for that, Ryan thank you very much. 00:52:31
Thank you, Mr. Allen, Commissioners, I'm going to present. 00:52:48
Mr. Robert Dean Shannon He's worked for the county for 10 years. I've had the pleasure of working with him all those ten years in 00:52:52
some form of fashion. He is a man of faith, a good family man and a pleasure to work with. I'm setting you up for the challenge to 00:52:57
be here for my 30th. 00:53:02
Thank you. 00:53:08
Good morning. 00:53:19
These men here, they're, they're working guys. They're the backbone of the infrastructure, keeping roads and bridges alive for 00:53:22
you, keeping everything passable out there. 00:53:26
So here we have Dave Davis. This is his 10 year anniversary, but Dave actually has closer to 15 years duty. 00:53:31
With Well County Road and. 00:53:39
These are quintessential blue collar working man. I mean, this guy will dive in. He's dove in with me and some icy cold waters to 00:53:42
help contractors. 00:53:46
Get stuck on stuck from out under bridges. 00:53:51
There's nothing he's not afraid to jump in and do and get the job done. 00:53:56
And beside him we have Dale Hill. 00:54:00
Bill. He was working for the old bridge crew out of LaSalle in the mid 1990s when I first started. 00:54:03
So he's been around a long time. He's got a great history. But Girl worked for Will County at the bridge crew. 00:54:09
Took a few years off, started his own business. 00:54:15
He's had pretty good success with that and it's going real good. He came back to work for us and he's now running both of those 00:54:18
businesses, working here and running the auction house. 00:54:22
So he's got more energy than probably anybody. 00:54:27
Jeff Garcia started here 2013. I guess it was 2012, 2012. 00:54:33
So he came on with the covert crew, did cattle guard work, that type of thing. He's moved himself up and. 00:54:40
2019 Jeff became true leader of our tree crew and he's really turned that around. He does a great job trimming trees all over the 00:54:48
county. 00:54:52
Deals with the citizens real. 00:54:57
Lee's fantastic work behind and really beautifies the county. 00:54:59
And down here on the end, almost to the end, we have Waylon Daniel. 00:55:05
Wayland Daniel I remember he started his little skinny Guy, little skinny kid and 2001 and here we are. He's just a nice little 00:55:11
skinny guy. But. 00:55:16
Yeah, Way when started in 2001 and became full time in 2005. 00:55:23
And he came with a great attitude. 00:55:28
He just always happy, willing to learn, and willing to put forth the extra effort. 00:55:33
He just promoted lead worker in 2015. 00:55:39
And actually, just this past year, he became Foreman in 2022. 00:55:42
So all you guys, thank you for your dedication. 00:55:47
Morning, Commissioners. 00:55:57
So I get to present this pin to Scott Dale for 20 years, but with that, I've gotten to work with all of these guys for their whole 00:56:01
career. It's been an honor to work with all of them. 00:56:08
They're, they're, they're, they're the foundation. 00:56:16
Of public works. So Scott, he can still work Royal County. In 1995 a seasonal employee worked that season and then and then took 00:56:19
off and then he returned in 2003 as a seasonal employee for the end of that year. I came full time. 00:56:28
And the road construction. 00:56:38
Which promoted rebirth in 2012 and then promoted department in 2015. 00:56:41
Earlier this year, Scott decided enough management for me right now. 00:56:48
So he wanted to go back and get a equipment operator. So earlier this year he transferred to the. 00:56:54
The other Rd. maintenance management division to go back to London Equipment. So that's how he wants to finish his career out. But 00:57:01
congratulations all you guys, pleasure working with y'all. I was really with construction supervisor, that's why Ron and myself 00:57:09
kind of split this stuff just a little bit. But anyway, thank you guys. Thank you. 00:57:16
So I get the pleasure of our of our 130 year employee of public Works, Mr. Dwayne, My bar, my Deputy Director of Operations. As he 00:57:31
said he was the supervisor of road and Bridge. Like a lot of us in Public Works, Dwayne started as a seasonal employee. 00:57:40
And work his way up. 00:57:50
To management. Some decided to step down a little bit sooner than others, but. 00:57:52
I mean it's been said here for a lot of the a lot of folks around here, there's I don't think when any of us started the county. 00:58:01
I'm talking to the Public Works folks right now. When we started at the county, I don't think we necessarily understood what we 00:58:10
were diving into, but what's kept all of these folks here and I'll say that for my entire team at Public Works and probably a lot 00:58:16
of the folks in Weld County in general, it's that hard of service that we talked about this morning. 00:58:23
They I don't think anybody really realizes it that everyone of these folks up here cares about the citizens in North County. 00:58:29
And how they go to and from whatever they need to go to and from for they. 00:58:37
They're they're interested in keeping the public safe and making sure they get where they need to go. 00:58:44
Where we're coming up on on a holiday here and there'll probably be a few of these folks I think are probably Christmas Eve, maybe 00:58:51
Christmas Day, be out there working so that people can get where they need to go and they stayed around through many of those. 00:58:58
Holidays that they've had to work because of that heart for service and I just. 00:59:06
Thank you to all of you for what you do, Dwayne. 00:59:10
My 30 year employee kind of epitomizes that. I mean what will we listen to? 00:59:14
For people that call in and talk to us about how horrible things are and. 00:59:21
And how we don't know what we're doing. I always get it as a as a supervisor in the Grandma Roads division that I hired the 42 00:59:27
employees that knew nothing about running the motor greater because everybody I talked to told me that they could run it better 00:59:33
than anyone of my employees. So. 00:59:39
But Dwayne, I said he he started here as a seasonal employees worked his way up. I greatly appreciate everything he does for for 00:59:46
me and for the citizens of Wales County and your service is greatly appreciated Sir. Thank you. 00:59:53
Thank you. Thanks. 01:00:12
Jamie Ulrich, our Director at the Department of Human Services for her presentations. 01:00:17
All right. We have some great people here that we want to recognize. We're going to have you organize in 10/20/30 and we do need a 01:00:31
40 year person up here as well. 01:00:39
Going to set this down for a moment. 01:00:49
All right. As we're as we're gathering, I did want to let everyone know I'm going to be very brief this morning because if you 01:00:57
know anything about Human Services. 01:01:01
You know, we love to party. So we are having a party this afternoon called Cheers for years. And at that party, each of these 01:01:06
individuals will get more specific and individualized recognition from their supervisors. And we really get a chance to take some 01:01:13
really dedicated time to appreciate all the work that you do. But I do want to take to take to those opportunities to to introduce 01:01:20
all these wonderful folks and share some great, great aspects of their work with the county. We're going to start down there at 01:01:27
the far end. That's Barb Wood. 01:01:34
Is one of our CSS workers in Fort Lupton. We had the pleasure of recognizing Barb just two days ago here at the board meeting for 01:01:42
her retirement as well. So she's 10 years and her retirement bar is just an amazing employee. She's so dedicated to the work that 01:01:50
we do. And as I said at her retirement, she is such a positive force, has a lot of good energy and amazing laugh and saves all the 01:01:58
copiers from being hit with a baseball bat, as Commissioner Ross mentioned the other day. 01:02:06
Congratulations. Next we have Claudia Carbajal, who is our migrant seasonal farm worker, Ashworks, our Employment Services 01:02:15
division. This is just such a unique and specialized position that Claudia does and she does. She does this work truly out of a 01:02:23
heart for service for the population that she serves. So Claudia is out making sure that the migrant sees my farm workers have the 01:02:31
work conditions they need in order to perform their jobs within the law and then also helps. 01:02:39
Agricultural employers. 01:02:48
Get the the employees that they need so that they can keep keep everything going. Claudia does an amazing job and she also hosts 01:02:50
Migrant Seasonal Picnic every year where she solicits donations and gift cards so that we can help honor those that are doing that 01:02:57
very, very hard work. So thank you for being here and congratulations. 01:03:04
Unemployment services division as well. She's a case manager and she's had a couple different positions with us over the years, 01:03:16
but most recently she's really specializing in the veterans population. So we have through our program, we assign all of our. 01:03:25
All of our veterans to one person so that they can really get that specialized service and that person is Carla. She has found a 01:03:35
tremendous passion for working with the veteran population and is going to work tremendously with our new VSO office that has just 01:03:41
moved over. Super excited about that. Carla has a bright spirit and a welcoming personality. Congratulations Carla, for all you 01:03:47
do. 01:03:52
Next we have for 10 years Leslie Belinda Leslie is a youth worker and unemployment services division, a youth case manager. Leslie 01:04:02
has again a passion. I keep saying passion that that truly is what we always folks have for working with the youth in our 01:04:09
community, helping them get the skills that they need to become employed when they are ready to go out into the world and and 01:04:16
overcome maybe some of the barriers that they've experienced. 01:04:23
She was strong advocate for those youth and we really appreciate that. Leslie also coordinates all of our efforts around Project 01:04:31
Connect over here. She's done so for many, many years. And I don't know how you do that because it's like hurting cats, trying to 01:04:36
get, you know, volunteers from the department all organize what you do, a tremendous job. And we thank you for all of your work. 01:04:42
Thank you. 01:04:48
And then you have Patty, Patty Wolf. Patty again has had a few different positions within employment services over her ten years. 01:04:58
Patty currently is a disability program navigator and works really hard with our disabled population to be able to help them 01:05:07
upskill and get new skills so that they can become employed as as well as matching employers with these highly skilled folks. 01:05:16
Really just bridging that gap for for that particular population, it does take you know a special, a special person to be able to 01:05:26
do that and Patty uses her tenacity and perseverance to really make an impact in the lives of all of those clients and and people 01:05:32
that we serve. So thank you, Patty. 01:05:38
Next. 01:05:49
Next we have done Haley. Doug would really rather be anywhere else in the world than here right now. 01:05:52
But I need to come because dog is Doug. I don't, I don't really know what your title clinical care supervisor. But really what his 01:05:59
job is, is he is the backbone of the child welfare division judge supervisors, our mental health experts and our placement team 01:06:07
and does the person that is working day and night 24/7 to to secure placements for our youth. 01:06:15
When we have no options, I don't know how. I really don't. I always say you like to live on the edge, Doug. And he's like, I 01:06:25
really don't because that's the nature of the job. He's there Friday night at 5:00 when everyone else is going home and he's 01:06:30
trying to figure out where we're going to place these kids. So, Doug, thank you for coming, number one, but most importantly, 01:06:36
thank you for all of the work that you do. 01:06:41
Moving on, we have Susie Will Susie here for her twenty year pin as Susie works in our child support division and has worked there 01:06:52
the entire 20 years. In fact, I think you've had the same case load nearly the entire 20 years which really builds a lot of 01:06:58
continuity when you're looking with with those clients. But Susan Lawyer has done a great job kind of stepping out of that way 01:07:05
over the last few years and has been. 01:07:12
The bridge between child support and employment services. 01:07:19
And really working with non custodial parents in gaining skills so that they can become employed and then with those child support 01:07:22
payments. But really that bridging that gap has been so helpful for many, many people and you were very instrumental in doing all 01:07:28
of that. So congratulations and thank you Susie. 01:07:34
Nancy Sanchez, also one of those that. 01:07:45
Had to twist around with you here because Nancy don't really care for public recognition, recognition, but we really wanted to 01:07:49
recognize you publicly. Nancy's getting her 30 European today, which is amazing. 01:07:55
Nancy, I didn't know this, but start out in Head Start originally when you came to Wall County, but since then has worked 01:08:02
exclusively in employment services since then and has I I don't even know how many hundreds or thousands of people. 01:08:10
You have helped gain employment in your 30 years, but I'm sure it is really up there. 01:08:18
Nancy, you are a faithful servant of Weld County. You just put your head down and work and we so appreciate that and you always do 01:08:24
what is best for the clients. So again, thank you for being here, but most importantly, thank you for your 30 years. 01:08:31
Smaller star tree, our party where person. So we have three of those today. That's amazing. Morris is crying and so I'm not going 01:08:44
to look at her. 01:08:49
Because I've known my life. I know my life for the 27 years that I've worked at Wallace County. I know her family. I know her 01:08:56
personally. She is a wonderful person. 01:09:00
I thought you said you were gonna cry. I know. 01:09:06
So my room has been through the Human Services directors in for 30 years. Nobody else can say that, really. I mean, everybody 01:09:10
remembers Judy Grover, but who is before Judy Grogo? Milos knows. 01:09:17
Mario has had over 16 supervisors since she's worked for the county. Miles actually retired and State retired, I don't know, for 5 01:09:26
minutes and then has been back as a working retiree for the last 18 years. 01:09:33
Morris is hurt. I just. I can't even. I could go on and on and on. But one thing I want to say about my list is. 01:09:40
Her attention to detail and her commitment to making sure everything is done correctly is so admirable. She is currently working 01:09:49
in the Fiscal Office. She's had many positions over the years and to have you know that is such a a detail oriented position and 01:09:56
nourished his dives in and gets the work done. 01:10:03
I, my daughter and I used to go scrapbooking at Mario's house on the weekends and you know, I'd be like throwing pictures on the 01:10:10
page and wireless is scrapbooks were like so amazing. She's just a very detailed person. She she cares a lot about the work that 01:10:17
we do here at Weld County. That's why she's been here for 40 years. And I just love her. She's wonderful. And Marla, this is for 01:10:24
you. 01:10:31
Here's your challenge coin and your jacket. 01:10:39
Now I did want to say one more thing. We are missing 110 year person Kimberly from the Kimberly Davis from the single entry point. 01:10:51
She's getting her 10 year pin. She wasn't able to make it today but she you know she's done a great job with our older population 01:10:58
and helping them stay, feel to stay and thrive and live in their homes. 01:11:05
By providing them the support that they need, we will recognize Kimberly Cheers for yours because we like to party. 01:11:14
But I wanted to mention her today, and I'm going to pass it off to. 01:11:19
I have the honor today of presenting A10 year pin to two of my attorneys from DHS. They're being shy right now and they need to 01:11:23
come up here. 01:11:29
Both of these attorneys are good at what they do. 01:11:38
They both are in our child welfare department with DHS. 01:11:43
Child Walter Lawyering is tough. 01:11:50
You see a lot of stuff that you don't want to see again. 01:11:55
But you have to deal with it, and they do it about as as good as anyone in the state of Colorado. 01:12:00
I had the pleasure of if Mr. District Attorney was here, he'd say he stole them from me. 01:12:07
Which they came They both started in 2013 or 2013. 01:12:17
Yeah, 2013 and we're the DA's office. 01:12:22
At the same time, it was in the spring of 2013. 01:12:28
And Tammy had risen to the level of Chief Deputy in the DA's office. And then we are fortunate to have her come over to our shop 01:12:32
in 2013, in February of 2013. 01:12:40
Tate came over in 2018 and then became our lead attorney, doing DHS child welfare welfare work in earlier this year. 01:12:49
Both of them do great work and I'd like to go ahead and honor them with this pen. One thing I'd like to say about tape is that 01:13:04
I've been so impressed. 01:13:10
With her ability to organize the. 01:13:15
And to make it run smoothly, because there are a lot of moving parts, not only with the paralegals that are working on stuff, but 01:13:19
also the attorneys and trying to cover all of the things that need to be done. So I especially appreciate Tate's work. She does it 01:13:26
as good as as anyone. 01:13:33
Thank you. 01:13:41
Well, I just want to thank everybody for congratulations for all your service World County. Thank you so much. 01:13:50

Alert and Warning Station Project and authorize Office of Emergency Management to submit electronically with Emergency Management. 01:24:51
The request he had before you is an electronic grant. 01:24:58
Request to submit electronic grant. This is a hazard mitigation project. It's a 7525% grant, so we have a 25% match for that 01:25:07
grant. This will go to the state and then submit it to FEMA to expand on our stream warning gauge alert system that we have. So 01:25:16
it'll be an expansion. It's not a new project, but it'll be adding additional stream gauges along the rivers that we don't have. 01:25:25
Basically real time notification on that. So total project is 49,380. 01:25:36
Which is a 25% match for well county will be $12,345 and that was budgeted this for this next year. OK, questions. 01:25:42

Brick Application for Hazard Mitigation Grant for updates and Multi Jurisdictional Plan and Authorized chair to sign. 01:26:01
The commissioners were rude to sell again with the Emergency Management Office. This is an application. 01:26:10
Actually it's a, it's not the full grant application, it's actually the scope of work that we're submitting to the state. The 01:26:17
state is actually submitting the application for several counties to complete updates to the their hazard mitigation plans. It's a 01:26:22
FEMA requirement for each county to have a mitigation plan And so the application process is actually coming up a little bit 01:26:28
early. Our plan actually expires the end of 26. 01:26:34
But because of the grant cycle and the time that will that it will take to complete the plan development or the update to our 01:26:41
plan. 01:26:44
We're requesting to submit the application now, so the document that you have for you is actually the scope work with an estimated 01:26:47
estimated cost for matching dollars for us. 01:26:52
Is $25,145.00. 01:27:00
During the pass around memo there was a, there was a question of whether or not what that amount that would look like, but we'll 01:27:06
work with the finance to get that budgeted for the 2025 budget year. 01:27:12

Rhythm in this chapter. Eight public works of the long term. 01:30:40
Good morning, Comm. 01:30:45
Here with Public Works and Don Anderson with Department of Planning Services and when we submitted our memo at the time we had not 01:30:48
received any comments. We've. 01:30:53
Yesterday received comments regarding the code changes. So for second reading we do not have any proposed code changes for your 01:30:59
consideration, but we will take the comments that we have received. 01:31:04
Under advisement and look to address them with you, we did receive them from AG professionals. We have two comments, one related 01:31:10
to permits for grading permit and our addition of written documentation from outside agencies for grading permits. 01:31:19
Say what that demonstration looks like, but if that's the direction that we'd like to go, we can talk about that. 01:31:58
The other comment was based on emergency access and again, we look at those on a case by case basis. Obviously we've got multiple 01:32:05
fire districts that all have a different opinion of what emergency access looks like. 01:32:11
We did say that for clarification. At a minimum, it seems like many of them want Knox Box equipment attached to emergency 01:32:18
accesses, so we were trying to recognize what that could be. So we have emergency accesses in commercial areas and residential 01:32:24
areas. They don't all. 01:32:30
One size doesn't fit all and so we're just trying to say if you're going to have a gate and it will be gated that you need to 01:32:36
include Knox box. 01:32:40
The criteria. So again, we're open to conversation about what these comments would be and are happy to try and address that for 01:32:45
third reading for you. 01:32:49
OK, what have any questions? 01:32:53
OK, this is public hearing. Is everybody in the audience who wish to come forward and discuss Code Orders 2023-16? 01:32:56
