Five, Yeah, 5. Two down this way. 00:09:38
Going to add a resolution to the agenda declaration that Weld County is not a sanctuary county for the federal immigration crisis, 00:09:49
I'll go ahead and read that. Whereas the Board of County Commissioners of Old County Colorado, pursuant to state statute and 00:09:55
Lowell County home World charter, is vested with the authority of administering the fairs of World County Colorado and whereas the 00:10:01
Board has witnessed negative impacts of citizens on the current immigration crisis. 00:10:06
And those cities designating themselves as sanctuary cities. 00:10:13
And whereas a member Mayor Mike Johnson's office has 100 million, $180 million managing the immigration crisis in 2024 and 00:10:16
migrants now reported to be camping outside of our world county, towns and cities which constrain our taxpayer resources. 00:10:23
Already dedicated to helping those in need who live in Walden County, including veterans, elderly, citizen, children of all ages 00:10:30
and the homeless. 00:10:34
And where's the well? County Board of Commissioners will continue to prioritize the needs and safety of our citizens, and that 00:10:38
mission has been jeopardized. But this governor's support and signature on sanctuary laws that hobbled sheriff's police and our 00:10:42
justice system. 00:10:45
Such as HB 19201124, HB 1930, HB 211194, HB 2311 hundred and where is the Biden administration has ended the Trump administration 00:10:50
policies including detention and deportation of illegal immigrants and thus failed to execute the law to secure our country's 00:10:57
borders and causes crisis overwhelm this nation our cities in the state of Colorado. 00:11:04
And where it be resolved by the Board of County Commissioners of Lowell County, Colorado to declare that we are not a sanctuary 00:11:12
county for the federal government failures normless use of taxpayer dollars resulting from this federal immigration crisis 00:11:16
affecting Colorado. 00:11:20
Which includes the misuse of taxpayer dollars regarding all departments on the authority of World County, including any other help 00:11:25
with grants any cities or towns declaring themselves be sanctuary towns and cities. 00:11:30
Nor sanctuary towns or cities is found to be operating in that capacity. Be it further resolved by the board we called on the 00:11:35
federal government channel representatives in Congress is hereboarding for safety and sovereignty of our country, backstanding 00:11:41
skier border wall barriers and reinstating Trump administration policies such as safe third countries, Title 32 tariffs and 00:11:47
freezing coordinated countries unwilling to enforce their borders. 00:11:52
The above and foregoing resolution. 00:11:58

resolution on life sanctity of life rather than a proclamation. But I do have both here. Which one would you like me to move? 00:13:08
I haven't told him anything. What are you trying to pin me into, commissioners, Once again, Can I just make one comment? Sure. So 00:13:15
if you haven't had a chance to read the awards, you vote no. If you haven't had a chance to read anything, you vote no. And yet 00:13:20
you bring something that none of us have seen. The County Attorney hasn't looked at it. Expect us to vote on it today. That's not 00:13:25
going to happen. I'll pass that on. It's the same when the County Attorney Roach, it's the same one you've seen before. It's the 00:13:30
same one. 00:13:35
Exactly the same resolution as before. Well, that's not the. That's not for today. 00:13:43
I'd rather just get it all done today, no? 00:13:49

Works, Good morning Tony. Good morning Toby Taylor with Purchasing Public Works has conducted a quality based selection process to 00:16:49
select a consultant to perform on call right away acquisition, relocation and appraisal services for calendar year 2024. The 00:16:56
contract is a single year contract with options to renew in 2025 and in 2026. 00:17:04
The Decision Ranking Summary is an Exhibit A of your attached to this memo. The first ranked proposal was submitted by Western 00:17:13
States Land Services, also called Western States. Bell County has used the services of Western States multiple times in the past 00:17:20
and they have been found to be representative of the county needs and have completed the projects on schedule. 00:17:26
Therefore, Public Works is recommending the award of On Call Right Away Acquisition and appraisal Services to be contracted with 00:17:34
Western States Land Services LLC for a not to exceed amount of $110,000. 00:17:40
All right. Questions for Toby. Regarding the bid, I do have a question. What are the three bids from the vendors for the 00:17:48
contractors? 00:17:52
This was a process, so price was not evaluated until it was negotiated at the end per county code. 00:17:57
OK. And if? 00:18:07
So we don't do a good process no more. 00:18:11
We have a bid process and a QBs process. The QBs process complies with federal requirements in which you look at quality versus 00:18:15
price. 00:18:20
What that means is once you find the bid, the bidder that meets the qualifications for the bid that we're looking for, then you 00:18:27
get the numbers and pricing from the. 00:18:31
Correct, Toby, correct. 00:18:36
Excuse me. Is there any way we can get pricing even with what we have three contractors in the queue? That's not how QBs works. If 00:18:40
we go for best price bidding, then that's when you're going with three competitive bids or trying to get multiple bids to compete 00:18:46
when you're going QBs. That's exactly the reason why we go this way. 00:18:53
To whether we can also have a bid process and have a QBSQBS pick one of the other. You pick one of the other in the process. 00:19:01
Federal guidelines? There's no way to do both? Nope. OK. 00:19:08

Changes to item number 10. Consider expression of support for University of Northern Colorado College of Osteopathic Medicine and 00:31:55
HD24-1231 state funding for higher education projects. 00:32:01
If you would, thank you, Sir, I have requested this resolution of support. We have. We, being the Board of County Commissioners, 00:32:10
has actively used resolutions to take positions on active legislation. In this case we are. 00:32:16
HB24-1231. 00:32:24
Course, we have already heard from President Andy Feinstein from the University of Northern Colorado was actively pursued this 00:32:27
College of Osteopathic Medicine. It's expected to generate $1.5 billion in economic impact over the next several years. UNC would 00:32:34
graduate 150 new doctors and put them into the workforce each year. Once they get up and fully cohorted, they, I believe, expect 00:32:41
to admit their first class of cohorts within the next two years. 00:32:47
It is a piece of legislation that's being carried from a bipartisan standpoint 1 by a former county commissioner. Current Senator 00:32:56
Mark Kirkmeyer, Representative Mary Young are just a couple of the bipartisan Co sponsors on this piece of legislation. 00:33:04
It has significant impact on the person's wealth, counting on the positive. And with that Mr. Chair, I would move that we approve 00:33:11
this resolution. 00:33:15
Second, the motion from Commissioner James for approval. 00:33:20
Of the expression of support for the University of Northern Colorado College of Osteopathic Medicine and HB 241231, second by 00:33:24
Commissioner Freeman. Any further discussion? 00:33:30
I'm going to go ahead and make comments. I think this is a great opportunity for UNC City agreement, Weld County. You're really 00:33:37
going to change the dynamics of this community by bringing in this type of college. They'll be one of only two or three. 00:33:45
Medical colleges here in the state, and that's a very big deal. And I know President Feinstein has worked tirelessly on this as 00:33:55
others have in the community, and I appreciate our legislators. 00:34:01
Seeing the value in this not only for UNC, but with HP 24/12/31 there's multiple other higher Ed entities that are being able to 00:34:08
get support that they need as well on their projects and so I'm going to be in full support of this as well. 00:34:15
So there are no other comments. I'll bring that back to the board. We have a motion and a second. 00:34:23
And with that I'll go ahead and call the call all those in favor of the expression support signify by saying aye, aye, all 00:34:29
opposed, same thing. 00:34:33
And that expression of support passes unanimously and we obviously wish you would see. 00:34:37
The best first year, if you would. You're probably a couple of gentlemen from UNC this morning. 00:34:42
OK. I was mistaken. I'm sorry, Commissioner James, thanks for pointing that out. 00:34:50
Brings us to item number 11 that was amended. This is a resolution declaration that Weld County is not a sanctuary county for 00:34:56
federal immigration crisis. 00:35:00
If you're saying you wish to address anything on this. 00:35:08
I just approved the declarations and said the already read into the record. 00:35:11
Motion on the floor from Commissioner saying for approval of this resolution. 00:35:19
Any second. 00:35:25
Second, second by Commissioner Buck for the resolution, any further discussion. 00:35:26
Mr. James. 00:35:35
Thank you, Mr. Chair, I appreciate, Commissioner, same thing this forward, it expresses a concern by many in the Community. 00:35:37
I think it is a bit in reaction to some false information that's on a website on the Centers for Immigration Studies website. They 00:35:44
rather mistakenly branded well county or sanctuary county, no. 00:35:49
Action ever has been taken by this Board of County commissioners to to designate, well, plenty of sanctuary county. It could not 00:35:55
be farther from the truth. 00:35:58
Their definition of sanctuary and mind you this isa.org. So therefore it comes with a particular bias. Their definition of of a 00:36:03
sanctuary county is certainly not what what you and I would recognize as as a sanctuary county. No action has ever been taken by 00:36:09
this board of County commissioners to designate World county. 00:36:15
Therefore the the resolution in my opinion is is out of order. Let me indicate as as to why. 00:36:22
We sit as you can go further and how I see my role as an elected representative. 00:36:29
We elected a couple of fold. This is how I see my role. Want to be an elected representative of the people and help them petition 00:36:36
government, IE there's a pothole on my Rd. I I wish to have something done in the Department of Human Services. I provide 00:36:42
constituent services and elected representative, and that's what I I do. 00:36:48
I'm also elected to be 1/5 of a governing body that it sits as a boy. County commissioners or county commissioners has certain 00:36:55
powers, powers, and duties that are outlined in section 3-8 of our our county charter. We certainly can enact policy and enact 00:37:00
legislation. 00:37:06
You have heard this morning we move to approve. Is this is all done by a resolution? 00:37:13
The primary instrument of action that this Board of county Commissioners has is is the resolution. 00:37:19
That is how we take action, the resolution while heartfelt, and I certainly agree with the sentiment. 00:37:24
Because we are being invaded by the southern border, we see it every day, but the resolution that is requested by by Commissioner 00:37:32
saying simply declare something that we're not. 00:37:37
But we're not a sanctuary county and and so why do we have to reinforce that, which we're not? 00:37:43
Soon we'll have to reinforce everything that we're not, we're not in Oregon County. We're we're the sky is not purple. We are. If 00:37:49
we are not taking action with the counties primary instruments instrument of action, which is a resolution, then why are we making 00:37:55
a resolution? If it takes no action, it's inaction. 00:38:01
I stand against. 00:38:08
Twisting the primary instruments of of of this body's action. 00:38:11
To take in action, it certainly makes a statement, it makes a political statement of that. 00:38:15
It's a cinema that I agree with. But when the Board of County Commissioners uses its primary instrument of action, the resolution 00:38:22
to take in action or to make a political statements, then that's fine when we agree with that political statement. But what 00:38:27
happens when we don't agree with that political statement and they're using the instruments of government to make a political 00:38:32
statement? 00:38:37
I disagree with that. 00:38:43
I believe that we all have platforms in which that we can make statements apply for them by speaking out as as one of five at this 00:38:45
particular meeting in social media, in in in the realms that we make as as newly elected representatives we can make those 00:38:51
statements. We are not a sanctuary county by any standard of any measure and I will continue to make that statement that I don't 00:38:58
support those who choose to be sanctuary organizations because I I think it is wrong. 00:39:05
Now, that being said, let's take a look at the action that we can take. 00:39:13
What action does this board have by the consent of the government under the proper authority, which I'm big on? 00:39:18
What actions can we take to stem the tide of illegal immigration? 00:39:25
I think that we can equip our Sheriff's Department that interesting. Interestingly enough, we had a request a presentation by a 00:39:29
chef for NC on Monday. 00:39:33
To to to provide a request for more money to help him make his agency his Sheriff's Office, 1st in class in the state. 00:39:39
It would be a proper designation by this board of county commissioners to a program. With that I mean the the request was 13 point 00:39:48
million, $13.2 million / 4 years if I if I remember correctly. He can duly bring that request to the Board of County Commissioners 00:39:53
would be considerate here in in a meeting. That is something that we can proactively do to make sure that we have a law 00:39:59
enforcement agency that's tasked with protecting the the health and safety and welfare of the citizens of Weld County. That's 00:40:05
something we can do. 00:40:10
But I don't believe in using our primary action instrument, action resolution, to take in action. 00:40:17
Because if we pass a resolution, that claims to be an action, but it's not when it's in action. 00:40:23
Our, our, our, our residents will approach this and say, Commissioner, I saw somebody whom I believe to be here illegally. 00:40:31
And you passed your resolution saying that we're not a sanctuary county. What are you going to do about it? 00:40:37
And our response to a speech must be nothing, because we don't have the authority. 00:40:42
A board in the elected body must. It must act in its proper authority. It's our proper authority to empower a Sheriff's Office 00:40:48
with additional money to empower a Sheriff's Office with ordinances, like a camping van, that allows them to protect the citizens 00:40:53
of Weld County. 00:40:58
But to. 00:41:04
To to take a resolution of inaction is something I can't stand behind. I appreciate the sentiment and I agree with many of you 00:41:06
that are here that want something done on illegal immigration. But when a government tries to do something that is not granted to 00:41:11
it in its its charters, its ordinances. 00:41:17
The usurping of given authority by the consent of the governors, nothing but tyranny. 00:41:25
And while we may agree with the sentiments to try to grab it some sort of authority that we don't have is is clearness, let's 00:41:30
focus on that which we can can properly do. 00:41:35
And and and do it And so as our sheriff comes to us and ask for more for more money which will have to come from our our 00:41:40
contingency funds to ensure that our, our, our citizens are safe. That's a valid role of the of of this board, county 00:41:45
commissioners. 00:41:50
I don't believe it is a valid role. If if we're going to pass a resolution, an instrument of action that takes inaction, then what 00:41:55
is it? If it's not action, it's it's a political statement. And while I may agree with it, there might be a time when I don't. And 00:42:01
I believe that's an overstep of government, so therefore I will not be in support of the motion. 00:42:06
James, like you comment, Mr. Freeman? 00:42:14
A phone call to sheriff and they will be removed. I mean we passed that resolution. So I'm not, I mean last year I believe, let me 00:42:59
actually put that on the books and that has been enforced and will continue to be enforced. That's the action that we can take as 00:43:03
a board of county commissioners. 00:43:08
This doesn't do anything other than say that we're something that we're not. 00:43:13
I'd like to respond about this chair and so I will not be in support of the motion as well, Mr. said. 00:43:18
Yeah, so we already equipped the Sheriff's Office and support the sheriff, So that's status quo. 00:43:23
That's not leadership. Resolutions are supposed to be about action, and simply saying that we're not a sanctuary county isn't 00:43:29
enough. 00:43:32
Which means we need to take a strong stand. Money is policy. 00:43:37
That is action by saying we will not misuse any funds from any department. 00:43:43
Then we will have done what we will have done to ensure that we are non sanctuary county. 00:43:48
Only when we ensure with our mouth and with our budget, which is action. 00:43:54
Better departments are compliant, and that includes our Department of Health of Human Services. And furthermore, we have an 00:43:59
apartment that's bent on giving environmental justice to people on the record. Our budget considerations include those who have 00:44:06
declared themselves sanctuary cities, towns, or the facto sanctuary cities and towns. And as you are aware, the mayor, Denver, has 00:44:12
been calling around to mayors asking them to help shelter these illegal immigrants up from Denver. 00:44:19
So we have people actively trying to move this crisis up to Weld County. We need to act. 00:44:26
We have a duty to protect the health, safety and law for our citizens. 00:44:32
And we act the fact that through a budget in our department that is an action, that is the action we take. 00:44:37
And the small town of Keansburg passed an anti sanctuary resolution. Should we have as much courage as the town of Kingsburg? 00:44:44
And I've mentioned this before. I've been down to the border and both the Obama administration and the Trump administration to 00:44:51
McAllen. 00:44:54
And what a difference. 00:44:59
What an incredible difference between the two. 00:45:00
The Trump administration had the lowest amount of apprehensions in 45 years because of the policies. 00:45:03
Mentioned in this resolution. 00:45:10
We should support that with our mouths. 00:45:13
But we should also support that as leaders. 00:45:15
To have other leaders take up the mantle, and others are doing that right now, by the way, in some of our towns and cities, 00:45:18
enacting some version of this resolution, and I applaud them for doing that. 00:45:23
We need to say openly that this is wrong. What's going on in the state of Colorado. 00:45:28
This effects. 00:45:33
The safety, the health, the welfare of our citizens, and that's our job. 00:45:35
That's our job to protect that. 00:45:41
And the fact that this human trafficking crisis has exploded and I mentioned the Border Patrol pointed out to me this one child. 00:45:43
Who was laying with a man that he probably wasn't related to, that he had passed over that border eight times. 00:45:51
Because of our Congress. 00:45:57
Created OK, as long as somebody's with a child, they passed through our borders without questions. 00:45:59
That's terrible. 00:46:06
And the fact we've got countries South. 00:46:08
That do not take visas. 00:46:11
You can just pass through and they do, with the intent of coming to the United States of America. 00:46:14
That also must be stopped. 00:46:19
The least we can do is. 00:46:21
But we should be doing more. 00:46:23
So with that. 00:46:26
Again, I will urge my colleagues about yes in this resolution. 00:46:28
Do you have anything done? 00:46:33
Just quick question, I appreciate what you're saying. I do what you say, I just disagree with. 00:46:35
How? We're trying to enact something again. We're taking inaction on. 00:46:42
We're using an instrument of action to take in action. That being said, you did make. Are we misusing in your purview? Are we 00:46:45
misusing county funds? And where? 00:46:50
We shouldn't be, are we? Are we? I'm asking you, are we? 00:46:57
Not. Well then let's continue not doing that and pass the resolution. So again, we're going to take in action. 00:47:05
And I would and one other comment I would make you know if if the, if the. 00:47:13
If the mayor of Denver is calling. 00:47:22
Mayors in, well, County wanting them to help, That's also not in our jurisdiction. We have no. This doesn't have anything to do 00:47:25
with what goes on in the city of Greeley, or the city of the town of Keansburg, or the town of Eaton or Windsor or anywhere else. 00:47:31
This is only about unincorporated World County, and it is it is a resolution to take in action. 00:47:38
I'm going to go ahead and weigh in. 00:47:47
We are not a sanctuary county. This board has never taken any action to state that it is not now. Not passports, There is no. 00:47:50
No vehicle out there inside of this county. And by vehicle I mean acting authority that is doing anything to make, well, county a 00:48:03
sanctuary county. I agree with Commissioner James. 00:48:08
Website is using information out of context. 00:48:16
That may be out there stating that, well, county, in fact, pretty much every county in the state of Colorado is a sanctuary county 00:48:21
because they're following their sheriff's departments, are following federal detention law when it comes to ICE and so. 00:48:29
I I think that's a total misuse of this characterization. I believe there's a huge. 00:48:38
Crisis when it comes to immigration in this country. I think it is sickening, Commissioner, saying I agree on many of your points. 00:48:45
What's going on is is troublesome. It is frightening when it's having as far as an impact goes on our communities. 00:48:52
And it could be resolved rather quickly. 00:49:01
If folks in Washington had the political will to get it done, frankly the laws are already in place in Washington. They need to 00:49:05
actually enforce the rule of law that they have and have the political stomach to do it. I don't think this is a partisan issue. I 00:49:12
think this is something both parties agree on. I've had many talks with people not only on on the right side of the aisle, but 00:49:19
also on the left side of the aisle. 00:49:25
And and they're all in favor of fixing what is broken when it comes to to immigration again. When I was out in DCA few weeks ago, 00:49:33
I urged our Congressional delegation. 00:49:39
Have the political will get this fixed and the other Commissioners that were with Commissioner James and myself unanimously agreed 00:49:45
with that. 00:49:50
However, this is a resolution which is a document of action. 00:49:56
We're simply not taking action in this resolution. I think it erodes the quality of what a resolution is for, It takes away from 00:50:00
the purpose of it and therefore it's not the appropriate tool. I do agree with Commissioner James. We all have various. 00:50:09
Media platforms that we can go on and take a political stance, should we choose any personal stance, should we choose. However, 00:50:19
that's not using the instruments of government for our own political purposes. 00:50:25
That's not the proper rule. And so therefore I am not in favor of a resolution that doesn't take any action as far as this board 00:50:32
goes and and what I am able to ascertain from it. So with that, there is a motion on the floor from commissioner saying for 00:50:39
approval, second from Commissioner Buck. I'll go ahead and call the call, we'll have a roll call. Bill, please. 00:50:46
Mike Freeman. 00:50:56
No, Scott. James. What are you saying? Perry back. Kevin Ross? No, That emotion dies 2:00 to 3:00. 00:50:58
Commissioners Ross, Freeman and James voting no. 00:51:11
That concludes new business. On to planning. 00:51:15
Item number one, consider a request to withdraw application for site specific development plan and use by special review permit 00:51:18
USR 12-0041 for an agricultural service establishment primarily engaged in performing agriculture, animal husbandry or 00:51:26

Parker with our office did a lot of work on this, went through and contacted applicants on some of our cases that hadn't been 00:51:56
finalized. 00:52:02
And these are cases where the applicants have requested to. 00:52:09
Vacate or rescind the USR. I could go through each resolution if you'd like and explain the details. Or since there's nine of 00:52:14
these. 00:52:18
I think we have to take him case by case. 00:52:25
Be appropriate here, Chris, and I mean you can just give us a minimal explanation on this where this is a withdrawal. 00:52:28
Requesting to rescind it and that means they're not going to do it, so we would resend them so. 00:52:37
Yeah, I'll do a quick one this. The first one, USR 120041 was located east of adjacent to County Road 3 and approximately. 00:52:42

verified that. 00:52:58

This concludes planning brings us to public comment. This is the time when anybody is allowed to come forth, share any concerns or 01:03:54
comments you have with the County Commissioners. We ask that you please come to the podium up front here. State your name, your 01:03:59
address for the record, and keep your comments to 3 minutes. 01:04:04
On anything that's not on today's agenda. Thank you, Commissioner Freeman. Does anybody have any public comment? 01:04:11
Come on up, man. 01:04:19
Good morning. Good morning. 01:04:22
My name is Lynn Tales and I live at 2160 144th Ave. in Greeley, Co. 01:04:31
And I just want to remind you, we are walking in unchartered waters right now. 01:04:36
You've already had a big discussion about this, so I'm going to share with you my story. Last Thursday evening at Union Colony 01:04:41
Civic Center, Mayor Gates presented the state of Gray message to the citizens of the area. It was well received for the community. 01:04:47
A burning question I wanted to have answered was are illegals coming and are in our area? Everyone I asked that work for the city 01:04:54
of Greeley. Orwell County had no idea or wouldn't give an answer. 01:05:01
One City of Greeley employee sitting next to me had the answer. Yes, they are here. 01:05:08
Who is sending them? Who is allowing it to happen? 01:05:15
Well, who is placing them in our area? 01:05:19
We have been watching the past year what is happening in the sanctuary cities across the country. 01:05:22
The cities are being destroyed. 01:05:27
Denver is broken. Collapsing financially and leaving the illegals on their own. Denver has placed the city employees on extended 01:05:30
layoffs. 01:05:34
And they were to pay for the needs of the illegals. 01:05:38
What are we doing to our own citizens? 01:05:41
We're no longer a sovereign state. Maybe that is the point. 01:05:44
This invasion of illegals as a planned and intentional move to destroy a country and bring it to great chaos. 01:05:49
All you have to do is watch who is allowing it and encouraging the invasion. What do you plan to do to protect the citizens? 01:05:55
As this is the role of our leaders. 01:06:03
And your positions as county commissioners, you have the power, like the governor of the county. 01:06:05
Royal County is recognized today as a safe place to live, according to the citizens in the community. 01:06:11
Will it continue to be like that in two months? 01:06:17
I chose to become a U.S. citizen and went through the naturalization process as a former citizen of Canada. 01:06:20
There was order to the process and all the laws were followed by both protecting the US border. 01:06:26
As a young person, my parents and I had to report our green cards until I chose to become a citizen. 01:06:32
What are we experiencing? 01:06:37
There's chaos, confusion, not to mention the sex trafficking of women and children, horrible drug trafficking, the cartels 01:06:40
involvement and the utter disregard and respect for human life, our borders, our citizens and our communities. 01:06:47
I plead with you to act on something to protect the citizens of Well County. 01:06:54
I hope you are bold enough to protect us, the citizens of Royal County, and do something now before it is too late. 01:07:01
May God give you over some of the courage to do so. Thank you. Thank you. 01:07:08
Anybody else? 01:07:18
Morning. 01:07:22
Again, just remember to state your name and address for the record. 01:07:24
My whole address or just the street address? Yeah. Thank you. Hi. Natalie Tennant. I live on Mount Andrew Drive in Severance, Co. 01:07:28
Good morning. Good morning. 01:07:38
I would like to thank Commissioner Singh for bringing this to my attention first, I would also like to thank Commissioner James 01:07:41
for connecting with me and being informative for allowing for following up with me. I think you both for your time. 01:07:48
As a concerned resident of all county, I'm here to express my strong support for prioritizing. 01:07:57
Well-being in the interest of our local residents over the concerns of illegal immigrants and to urge you. 01:08:03
Sorry, very passionate about this as well too. It's OK to urge you not to designate our county as a sanctuary county. 01:08:09
I understand and I hear you all that you do not want this to be that, and I respect that. 01:08:19
What you say and what we do are two different things though. OK, I understand that the topic of immigration can be polarizing. 01:08:26
That is essential to address this issue in a manner that upholds the rule of law. 01:08:31
And protects the rights and welfare of our community. By not becoming a sanctuary county, we can ensure that our limited 01:08:38
resources. 01:08:41
Are directed towards the safety and prosperity of our town residents. It's important to acknowledge that illegal immigration poses 01:08:46
challenges to our county. 01:08:50
Including potential strains on public service, job competition and public safety concerns. 01:08:54
And taking a conservative approach and not providing sanctuary, we can send a clear message to the that White County values law 01:09:01
abiding residents who contribute to our community. 01:09:06
I respectfully request that you consider alternative strategies to address immigration concerns while maintaining the integrity of 01:09:12
our county. 01:09:16
Collaborating with federal agencies and enforcing existing immigration laws. 01:09:20
Which we spoke on can help ensure that our community remains safe and welcoming. Welcoming place for legal residents. 01:09:26
Furthermore, I encourage you to further evaluate the potential consequences of adaption of adapting. 01:09:34
Century County status, which you've all stated that you do not want to do. So I thank you for that. 01:09:40
This is also written before you all spoke today. 01:09:47
In 3 minutes we'll come try. You're getting close to get it 45 seconds. 01:09:50
Setting the impact on public safety, education, health care and economic stability is essential to make informed decisions that 01:09:54
reflect conservative values and needs of our kind residents. 01:09:59
I would like to say there's more, but I want to add a little personality to this. I wasn't going to, but I'm going to. 01:10:06
My husband works in Denver. 01:10:13
Every day. He is also a veteran. He served our country. I'm not using that as a crutch to get sympathy from for any of you to do 01:10:15
anything. What I'm saying is he comes home to Wall County and he feels safer. 01:10:22
Are not going to Denver. He wishes that his employment would allow him to not have to do that, or to allow us to, you know, go 01:10:29
somewhere while camping where we do feel safer. I ask you to seriously consider. 01:10:36
Taking some form of action for we the people that you're solidifying saying that while county is not going to become sanctuary. 01:10:43
Thank you. Thank you. 01:10:48
Everybody else have public comment this morning. 01:10:54
Good morning, ma'am. 01:11:00
State your name and address. Summit to town Colorado. I will try to control myself because I feel very passionate about this and 01:11:06
I'm quite disgusted that you do not acknowledge the resolution for anti sanctuary status. 01:11:14
As a form of action, as several other cities are already implementing. 01:11:22
So to say first, that is not affirmative action. 01:11:30
2nd that you think the sale has the power to enforce a non camping band. 01:11:33
To protect this county is ridiculous. 01:11:40
They dropped by 4 buses. Anybody doesn't know this? Four buses are going as a golden crowd. 01:11:44
What happened to those people? Where are they? Cable put a strain on one schools. Schools are basically data for children that 01:11:51
don't speak English only. They'll be here, they'll be in the schools, they'll be overcrowding. The what is happening in other 01:11:57
cities is the children are not receiving their education they deserve. 01:12:03
Because of the situation. 01:12:10
Second, what about sheltering when we show up? OK, they can't camp. What are you going to do with them? 01:12:12
So it's gonna let you know we can't camp here. Never mind. 01:12:21
They're dropping them off by the busloads. It's going to continue. Are you saying we never said for a century that has no power at 01:12:24
all? 01:12:28
It's going to financially impact everyone in this county. 01:12:32
For many, many ways, it's going to have dire consequences if you do not stand up for the citizen of Weld County. 01:12:36
Which effects? All of our entire state. I have children here, our grandchildren here. We spend plenty of money. 01:12:44
They should be depend on what happens here. 01:12:50
This is a severe problem. There are ones with dire consequences if you do not take action personally and for the citizens. 01:12:55
Thank you. Thank you. 01:13:03
Somebody else have public comment? 01:13:09
Good morning. Just remember, state your name and address please. 01:13:20
My name is Bobby showing 2885 42nd Ave. and it's not a platform or discussion piece. It's more of a question to you guys. My 01:13:24
concern today was that I wanted to see us take a bold stance on the illegal immigration issue like we did with Covad. 01:13:32
And I think everybody commended you. 01:13:39
Over and over for the bird stance you took, that was the opposite of what Denver was doing in the county South of us. We were very 01:13:42
anti enforcing of masks. We kept our businesses open and we really appreciated the commissioner standing behind us and taking that 01:13:50
stance because it wasn't a popular opinion with Colorado in in poll. So my question today is why are we not doing the, you know, 01:13:57
not taking action on the immigration when we weren't not taking action on the COVID? 01:14:04
I guess I just don't understand the difference. So if we could maybe understand that there would be more people that understood 01:14:12
why we're not taking an inaction with this revolution and making it and making it go away. That was really my question here, the 01:14:17
difference. Thank you. Thank you. 01:14:22
Any other public comment? 01:14:31
Good morning. Please remember state your name and address. Good morning, Commissioners. For the record, Steven Grant. 01:14:36
2405 Dr. Evans Co. 01:14:49
22 year old, 22 year Greeley, resident senior pastor of Destiny Christian Center and also author of the book Fixing Immigration. 01:14:53
In today's meeting, item number 10 was to pass a resolution expressing support for the University of Northern Colorado. It says 01:15:02
nothing. It does nothing. 01:15:08
You're disingenuous in your approach. Everything begins with words. Everything begins with resolve. 01:15:14
Or else, what county will become the place where morals come to die? 01:15:21
Now as such, Jesus Christ said, by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. It all begins with 01:15:26
words. 01:15:30
And then moves to action. 01:15:34
With that in mind, I have documentation as a pastor where I have been invited to meetings to take care of these refugees with 01:15:37
Lutheran Family Services and other organizations that are operating right now. I have a an e-mail dated October 1st. 01:15:45
Of 2023 dealing with that. They're here, they're coming. They will be quietly washed. 01:15:54
Through all your Family Services and all of the things that are going on and for you to quietly say we're not going to do 01:16:01
anything. 01:16:05
As representatives of We the People is disingenuous. This is a different season. You see yourselves as an extension of state 01:16:09
government, but your home rule, you're actually elected by us. We are we the People. It's not tyranny to impose and enforce the 01:16:15
doctrine of the Western magistrates. 01:16:22
It is actually integrated is that which created the Bank of Cardiff, the Declaration of Independence and other items. We as well 01:16:28
county have a responsibility to stand against what is going on in the larger context of things, whether it is abortion, 01:16:35
immigration, Human Services, public services. 01:16:42
It's fun to spend other people's money, but it's always OPM opium. 01:16:49
And we don't want you spending our money, our time, our taxes, and we don't want you. 01:16:54
Saying in God we trust and then not living it. 01:17:00
It's up behind you and you need to pay attention to that. I urge you to reconsider your actions today when it comes to this 01:17:05
resolution. 01:17:09
Thank you. Thank you. 01:17:13
Good morning. 01:17:19
I just take your name and address for the record. Thank you. OK. Bob Ricci, Greeley Co. 01:17:24
I think we got a lot of lip service for Mr. Scott this morning. 01:17:31
That try to make his appointment or his opinion that you guys can't do something. It's time for you guys to stand up. 01:17:35
And take charge of this issue. 01:17:44
And do something to protect your people in this county. 01:17:47
And I don't see that. 01:17:52
All you have to do is make resolution to take care of your US. 01:17:54
But you don't care about us. Everything here, it seems to appear to me. You're worried about worrying about your fancy words, what 01:17:58
you can spin just like any other politician. 01:18:04
And it gets tiresome to sit back in the back and watch what you guys are doing to this county. 01:18:11
Because you want to take a stance. We have two people in this up here that took a better stance to the guys that should have. 01:18:18
And I appreciate what you've done for us. 01:18:26
Because we got three that don't care about the substance of this county. 01:18:28
And lives will be on. Their bloodshed will be on you. 01:18:34
When things start happening. 01:18:39
So what's going to happen? 01:18:41
And you're the closet, everyone of you guys. 01:18:45
Except for two. And I appreciate Miss Day and Lori for what they've done and thank you. 01:18:50
Sorry, you forgot to take your address. Do you mind giving that for the record? 01:18:59
And if anybody is speaking, we ask that you sign in to the sheet. It is a process. So we got to have record of who is speaking 01:19:03
today. 01:19:07
Any other public comment? 01:19:12
Yes, ma'am. Come on up. 01:19:14
Good morning. I'm Piano Evans, 4170 County Road 49. 01:19:26
Hudson, Co. 01:19:31
I just want to tell you that an incident I came across last week. 01:19:34
Suddenly I think she's 74 year old. 01:19:40
Woman was talking to me. I was in my friends business in Kingsburg and she was homeless, an experience she had at Q Soopers. 01:19:43
In Brighton, which is 2 blocks away from White County on 50th. 01:19:53
She was bringing out her groceries from the grocery store. 01:20:01
And she was surrounded. 01:20:04
By several. 01:20:07
Illegals and they were taking the groceries out of her cart. 01:20:11
That's a safety issue. It's not a moral issue. It's a safety issue for a 73 year old woman. 01:20:16
And we're going to have more and more of that if we don't take a stand on it. 01:20:22
That's that's all I wanted to let you know is that little story there and it was two blocks away from Royal County. 01:20:26
It was right there at the county line. 01:20:35
So we can walk over into Web county. 01:20:37
Thank you. 01:20:42
Everybody else had public comment this morning. 01:20:45
Yeah, you want to go ahead and close public comments. It is 10/14 and we will adjourn. We will take a 5 minute break and reconvene 01:20:49
for 9:00 AM public hearings. 01:20:57

You have a minute. 00:09:20
Yes, all right. What's your name by Commissioner Singh. 00:09:22
Let's see, I'm going to add a resolution. 00:09:26
And I'll pass it out now. 00:09:31
Five, Yeah, 5. Two down this way. 00:09:38
Going to add a resolution to the agenda declaration that Weld County is not a sanctuary county for the federal immigration crisis, 00:09:49
I'll go ahead and read that. Whereas the Board of County Commissioners of Old County Colorado, pursuant to state statute and 00:09:55
Lowell County home World charter, is vested with the authority of administering the fairs of World County Colorado and whereas the 00:10:01
Board has witnessed negative impacts of citizens on the current immigration crisis. 00:10:06
And those cities designating themselves as sanctuary cities. 00:10:13
And whereas a member Mayor Mike Johnson's office has 100 million, $180 million managing the immigration crisis in 2024 and 00:10:16
migrants now reported to be camping outside of our world county, towns and cities which constrain our taxpayer resources. 00:10:23
Already dedicated to helping those in need who live in Walden County, including veterans, elderly, citizen, children of all ages 00:10:30
and the homeless. 00:10:34
And where's the well? County Board of Commissioners will continue to prioritize the needs and safety of our citizens, and that 00:10:38
mission has been jeopardized. But this governor's support and signature on sanctuary laws that hobbled sheriff's police and our 00:10:42
justice system. 00:10:45
Such as HB 19201124, HB 1930, HB 211194, HB 2311 hundred and where is the Biden administration has ended the Trump administration 00:10:50
policies including detention and deportation of illegal immigrants and thus failed to execute the law to secure our country's 00:10:57
borders and causes crisis overwhelm this nation our cities in the state of Colorado. 00:11:04
And where it be resolved by the Board of County Commissioners of Lowell County, Colorado to declare that we are not a sanctuary 00:11:12
county for the federal government failures normless use of taxpayer dollars resulting from this federal immigration crisis 00:11:16
affecting Colorado. 00:11:20
Which includes the misuse of taxpayer dollars regarding all departments on the authority of World County, including any other help 00:11:25
with grants any cities or towns declaring themselves be sanctuary towns and cities. 00:11:30
Nor sanctuary towns or cities is found to be operating in that capacity. Be it further resolved by the board we called on the 00:11:35
federal government channel representatives in Congress is hereboarding for safety and sovereignty of our country, backstanding 00:11:41
skier border wall barriers and reinstating Trump administration policies such as safe third countries, Title 32 tariffs and 00:11:47
freezing coordinated countries unwilling to enforce their borders. 00:11:52
The above and foregoing resolution. 00:11:58

I wanted to give you the opportunity, since I believe you told some ladies at the early Republican women that you would pass a 00:13:02
resolution on life sanctity of life rather than a proclamation. But I do have both here. Which one would you like me to move? 00:13:08
I haven't told him anything. What are you trying to pin me into, commissioners, Once again, Can I just make one comment? Sure. So 00:13:15
if you haven't had a chance to read the awards, you vote no. If you haven't had a chance to read anything, you vote no. And yet 00:13:20
you bring something that none of us have seen. The County Attorney hasn't looked at it. Expect us to vote on it today. That's not 00:13:25
going to happen. I'll pass that on. It's the same when the County Attorney Roach, it's the same one you've seen before. It's the 00:13:30
same one. 00:13:35
Exactly the same resolution as before. Well, that's not the. That's not for today. 00:13:43
I'd rather just get it all done today, no? 00:13:49

Works, Good morning Tony. Good morning Toby Taylor with Purchasing Public Works has conducted a quality based selection process to 00:16:49
select a consultant to perform on call right away acquisition, relocation and appraisal services for calendar year 2024. The 00:16:56
contract is a single year contract with options to renew in 2025 and in 2026. 00:17:04
The Decision Ranking Summary is an Exhibit A of your attached to this memo. The first ranked proposal was submitted by Western 00:17:13
States Land Services, also called Western States. Bell County has used the services of Western States multiple times in the past 00:17:20
and they have been found to be representative of the county needs and have completed the projects on schedule. 00:17:26
Therefore, Public Works is recommending the award of On Call Right Away Acquisition and appraisal Services to be contracted with 00:17:34
Western States Land Services LLC for a not to exceed amount of $110,000. 00:17:40
All right. Questions for Toby. Regarding the bid, I do have a question. What are the three bids from the vendors for the 00:17:48
contractors? 00:17:52
This was a process, so price was not evaluated until it was negotiated at the end per county code. 00:17:57
OK. And if? 00:18:07
So we don't do a good process no more. 00:18:11
We have a bid process and a QBs process. The QBs process complies with federal requirements in which you look at quality versus 00:18:15
price. 00:18:20
What that means is once you find the bid, the bidder that meets the qualifications for the bid that we're looking for, then you 00:18:27
get the numbers and pricing from the. 00:18:31
Correct, Toby, correct. 00:18:36
Excuse me. Is there any way we can get pricing even with what we have three contractors in the queue? That's not how QBs works. If 00:18:40
we go for best price bidding, then that's when you're going with three competitive bids or trying to get multiple bids to compete 00:18:46
when you're going QBs. That's exactly the reason why we go this way. 00:18:53
To whether we can also have a bid process and have a QBSQBS pick one of the other. You pick one of the other in the process. 00:19:01
Federal guidelines? There's no way to do both? Nope. OK. 00:19:08

Changes to item number 10. Consider expression of support for University of Northern Colorado College of Osteopathic Medicine and 00:31:55
HD24-1231 state funding for higher education projects. 00:32:01
If you would, thank you, Sir, I have requested this resolution of support. We have. We, being the Board of County Commissioners, 00:32:10
has actively used resolutions to take positions on active legislation. In this case we are. 00:32:16
HB24-1231. 00:32:24
Course, we have already heard from President Andy Feinstein from the University of Northern Colorado was actively pursued this 00:32:27
College of Osteopathic Medicine. It's expected to generate $1.5 billion in economic impact over the next several years. UNC would 00:32:34
graduate 150 new doctors and put them into the workforce each year. Once they get up and fully cohorted, they, I believe, expect 00:32:41
to admit their first class of cohorts within the next two years. 00:32:47
It is a piece of legislation that's being carried from a bipartisan standpoint 1 by a former county commissioner. Current Senator 00:32:56
Mark Kirkmeyer, Representative Mary Young are just a couple of the bipartisan Co sponsors on this piece of legislation. 00:33:04
It has significant impact on the person's wealth, counting on the positive. And with that Mr. Chair, I would move that we approve 00:33:11
this resolution. 00:33:15
Second, the motion from Commissioner James for approval. 00:33:20
Of the expression of support for the University of Northern Colorado College of Osteopathic Medicine and HB 241231, second by 00:33:24
Commissioner Freeman. Any further discussion? 00:33:30
I'm going to go ahead and make comments. I think this is a great opportunity for UNC City agreement, Weld County. You're really 00:33:37
going to change the dynamics of this community by bringing in this type of college. They'll be one of only two or three. 00:33:45
Medical colleges here in the state, and that's a very big deal. And I know President Feinstein has worked tirelessly on this as 00:33:55
others have in the community, and I appreciate our legislators. 00:34:01
Seeing the value in this not only for UNC, but with HP 24/12/31 there's multiple other higher Ed entities that are being able to 00:34:08
get support that they need as well on their projects and so I'm going to be in full support of this as well. 00:34:15
So there are no other comments. I'll bring that back to the board. We have a motion and a second. 00:34:23
And with that I'll go ahead and call the call all those in favor of the expression support signify by saying aye, aye, all 00:34:29
opposed, same thing. 00:34:33
And that expression of support passes unanimously and we obviously wish you would see. 00:34:37
The best first year, if you would. You're probably a couple of gentlemen from UNC this morning. 00:34:42
OK. I was mistaken. I'm sorry, Commissioner James, thanks for pointing that out. 00:34:50
Brings us to item number 11 that was amended. This is a resolution declaration that Weld County is not a sanctuary county for 00:34:56
federal immigration crisis. 00:35:00
If you're saying you wish to address anything on this. 00:35:08
I just approved the declarations and said the already read into the record. 00:35:11
Motion on the floor from Commissioner saying for approval of this resolution. 00:35:19
Any second. 00:35:25
Second, second by Commissioner Buck for the resolution, any further discussion. 00:35:26
Mr. James. 00:35:35
Thank you, Mr. Chair, I appreciate, Commissioner, same thing this forward, it expresses a concern by many in the Community. 00:35:37
I think it is a bit in reaction to some false information that's on a website on the Centers for Immigration Studies website. They 00:35:44
rather mistakenly branded well county or sanctuary county, no. 00:35:49
Action ever has been taken by this Board of County commissioners to to designate, well, plenty of sanctuary county. It could not 00:35:55
be farther from the truth. 00:35:58
Their definition of sanctuary and mind you this isa.org. So therefore it comes with a particular bias. Their definition of of a 00:36:03
sanctuary county is certainly not what what you and I would recognize as as a sanctuary county. No action has ever been taken by 00:36:09
this board of County commissioners to designate World county. 00:36:15
Therefore the the resolution in my opinion is is out of order. Let me indicate as as to why. 00:36:22
We sit as you can go further and how I see my role as an elected representative. 00:36:29
We elected a couple of fold. This is how I see my role. Want to be an elected representative of the people and help them petition 00:36:36
government, IE there's a pothole on my Rd. I I wish to have something done in the Department of Human Services. I provide 00:36:42
constituent services and elected representative, and that's what I I do. 00:36:48
I'm also elected to be 1/5 of a governing body that it sits as a boy. County commissioners or county commissioners has certain 00:36:55
powers, powers, and duties that are outlined in section 3-8 of our our county charter. We certainly can enact policy and enact 00:37:00
legislation. 00:37:06
You have heard this morning we move to approve. Is this is all done by a resolution? 00:37:13
The primary instrument of action that this Board of county Commissioners has is is the resolution. 00:37:19
That is how we take action, the resolution while heartfelt, and I certainly agree with the sentiment. 00:37:24
Because we are being invaded by the southern border, we see it every day, but the resolution that is requested by by Commissioner 00:37:32
saying simply declare something that we're not. 00:37:37
But we're not a sanctuary county and and so why do we have to reinforce that, which we're not? 00:37:43
Soon we'll have to reinforce everything that we're not, we're not in Oregon County. We're we're the sky is not purple. We are. If 00:37:49
we are not taking action with the counties primary instruments instrument of action, which is a resolution, then why are we making 00:37:55
a resolution? If it takes no action, it's inaction. 00:38:01
I stand against. 00:38:08
Twisting the primary instruments of of of this body's action. 00:38:11
To take in action, it certainly makes a statement, it makes a political statement of that. 00:38:15
It's a cinema that I agree with. But when the Board of County Commissioners uses its primary instrument of action, the resolution 00:38:22
to take in action or to make a political statements, then that's fine when we agree with that political statement. But what 00:38:27
happens when we don't agree with that political statement and they're using the instruments of government to make a political 00:38:32
statement? 00:38:37
I disagree with that. 00:38:43
I believe that we all have platforms in which that we can make statements apply for them by speaking out as as one of five at this 00:38:45
particular meeting in social media, in in in the realms that we make as as newly elected representatives we can make those 00:38:51
statements. We are not a sanctuary county by any standard of any measure and I will continue to make that statement that I don't 00:38:58
support those who choose to be sanctuary organizations because I I think it is wrong. 00:39:05
Now, that being said, let's take a look at the action that we can take. 00:39:13
What action does this board have by the consent of the government under the proper authority, which I'm big on? 00:39:18
What actions can we take to stem the tide of illegal immigration? 00:39:25
I think that we can equip our Sheriff's Department that interesting. Interestingly enough, we had a request a presentation by a 00:39:29
chef for NC on Monday. 00:39:33
To to to provide a request for more money to help him make his agency his Sheriff's Office, 1st in class in the state. 00:39:39
It would be a proper designation by this board of county commissioners to a program. With that I mean the the request was 13 point 00:39:48
million, $13.2 million / 4 years if I if I remember correctly. He can duly bring that request to the Board of County Commissioners 00:39:53
would be considerate here in in a meeting. That is something that we can proactively do to make sure that we have a law 00:39:59
enforcement agency that's tasked with protecting the the health and safety and welfare of the citizens of Weld County. That's 00:40:05
something we can do. 00:40:10
But I don't believe in using our primary action instrument, action resolution, to take in action. 00:40:17
Because if we pass a resolution, that claims to be an action, but it's not when it's in action. 00:40:23
Our, our, our, our residents will approach this and say, Commissioner, I saw somebody whom I believe to be here illegally. 00:40:31
And you passed your resolution saying that we're not a sanctuary county. What are you going to do about it? 00:40:37
And our response to a speech must be nothing, because we don't have the authority. 00:40:42
A board in the elected body must. It must act in its proper authority. It's our proper authority to empower a Sheriff's Office 00:40:48
with additional money to empower a Sheriff's Office with ordinances, like a camping van, that allows them to protect the citizens 00:40:53
of Weld County. 00:40:58
But to. 00:41:04
To to take a resolution of inaction is something I can't stand behind. I appreciate the sentiment and I agree with many of you 00:41:06
that are here that want something done on illegal immigration. But when a government tries to do something that is not granted to 00:41:11
it in its its charters, its ordinances. 00:41:17
The usurping of given authority by the consent of the governors, nothing but tyranny. 00:41:25
And while we may agree with the sentiments to try to grab it some sort of authority that we don't have is is clearness, let's 00:41:30
focus on that which we can can properly do. 00:41:35
And and and do it And so as our sheriff comes to us and ask for more for more money which will have to come from our our 00:41:40
contingency funds to ensure that our, our, our citizens are safe. That's a valid role of the of of this board, county 00:41:45
commissioners. 00:41:50
I don't believe it is a valid role. If if we're going to pass a resolution, an instrument of action that takes inaction, then what 00:41:55
is it? If it's not action, it's it's a political statement. And while I may agree with it, there might be a time when I don't. And 00:42:01
I believe that's an overstep of government, so therefore I will not be in support of the motion. 00:42:06
James, like you comment, Mr. Freeman? 00:42:14
A phone call to sheriff and they will be removed. I mean we passed that resolution. So I'm not, I mean last year I believe, let me 00:42:59
actually put that on the books and that has been enforced and will continue to be enforced. That's the action that we can take as 00:43:03
a board of county commissioners. 00:43:08
This doesn't do anything other than say that we're something that we're not. 00:43:13
I'd like to respond about this chair and so I will not be in support of the motion as well, Mr. said. 00:43:18
Yeah, so we already equipped the Sheriff's Office and support the sheriff, So that's status quo. 00:43:23
That's not leadership. Resolutions are supposed to be about action, and simply saying that we're not a sanctuary county isn't 00:43:29
enough. 00:43:32
Which means we need to take a strong stand. Money is policy. 00:43:37
That is action by saying we will not misuse any funds from any department. 00:43:43
Then we will have done what we will have done to ensure that we are non sanctuary county. 00:43:48
Only when we ensure with our mouth and with our budget, which is action. 00:43:54
Better departments are compliant, and that includes our Department of Health of Human Services. And furthermore, we have an 00:43:59
apartment that's bent on giving environmental justice to people on the record. Our budget considerations include those who have 00:44:06
declared themselves sanctuary cities, towns, or the facto sanctuary cities and towns. And as you are aware, the mayor, Denver, has 00:44:12
been calling around to mayors asking them to help shelter these illegal immigrants up from Denver. 00:44:19
So we have people actively trying to move this crisis up to Weld County. We need to act. 00:44:26
We have a duty to protect the health, safety and law for our citizens. 00:44:32
And we act the fact that through a budget in our department that is an action, that is the action we take. 00:44:37
And the small town of Keansburg passed an anti sanctuary resolution. Should we have as much courage as the town of Kingsburg? 00:44:44
And I've mentioned this before. I've been down to the border and both the Obama administration and the Trump administration to 00:44:51
McAllen. 00:44:54
And what a difference. 00:44:59
What an incredible difference between the two. 00:45:00
The Trump administration had the lowest amount of apprehensions in 45 years because of the policies. 00:45:03
Mentioned in this resolution. 00:45:10
We should support that with our mouths. 00:45:13
But we should also support that as leaders. 00:45:15
To have other leaders take up the mantle, and others are doing that right now, by the way, in some of our towns and cities, 00:45:18
enacting some version of this resolution, and I applaud them for doing that. 00:45:23
We need to say openly that this is wrong. What's going on in the state of Colorado. 00:45:28
This effects. 00:45:33
The safety, the health, the welfare of our citizens, and that's our job. 00:45:35
That's our job to protect that. 00:45:41
And the fact that this human trafficking crisis has exploded and I mentioned the Border Patrol pointed out to me this one child. 00:45:43
Who was laying with a man that he probably wasn't related to, that he had passed over that border eight times. 00:45:51
Because of our Congress. 00:45:57
Created OK, as long as somebody's with a child, they passed through our borders without questions. 00:45:59
That's terrible. 00:46:06
And the fact we've got countries South. 00:46:08
That do not take visas. 00:46:11
You can just pass through and they do, with the intent of coming to the United States of America. 00:46:14
That also must be stopped. 00:46:19
The least we can do is. 00:46:21
But we should be doing more. 00:46:23
So with that. 00:46:26
Again, I will urge my colleagues about yes in this resolution. 00:46:28
Do you have anything done? 00:46:33
Just quick question, I appreciate what you're saying. I do what you say, I just disagree with. 00:46:35
How? We're trying to enact something again. We're taking inaction on. 00:46:42
We're using an instrument of action to take in action. That being said, you did make. Are we misusing in your purview? Are we 00:46:45
misusing county funds? And where? 00:46:50
We shouldn't be, are we? Are we? I'm asking you, are we? 00:46:57
Not. Well then let's continue not doing that and pass the resolution. So again, we're going to take in action. 00:47:05
And I would and one other comment I would make you know if if the, if the. 00:47:13
If the mayor of Denver is calling. 00:47:22
Mayors in, well, County wanting them to help, That's also not in our jurisdiction. We have no. This doesn't have anything to do 00:47:25
with what goes on in the city of Greeley, or the city of the town of Keansburg, or the town of Eaton or Windsor or anywhere else. 00:47:31
This is only about unincorporated World County, and it is it is a resolution to take in action. 00:47:38
I'm going to go ahead and weigh in. 00:47:47
We are not a sanctuary county. This board has never taken any action to state that it is not now. Not passports, There is no. 00:47:50
No vehicle out there inside of this county. And by vehicle I mean acting authority that is doing anything to make, well, county a 00:48:03
sanctuary county. I agree with Commissioner James. 00:48:08
Website is using information out of context. 00:48:16
That may be out there stating that, well, county, in fact, pretty much every county in the state of Colorado is a sanctuary county 00:48:21
because they're following their sheriff's departments, are following federal detention law when it comes to ICE and so. 00:48:29
I I think that's a total misuse of this characterization. I believe there's a huge. 00:48:38
Crisis when it comes to immigration in this country. I think it is sickening, Commissioner, saying I agree on many of your points. 00:48:45
What's going on is is troublesome. It is frightening when it's having as far as an impact goes on our communities. 00:48:52
And it could be resolved rather quickly. 00:49:01
If folks in Washington had the political will to get it done, frankly the laws are already in place in Washington. They need to 00:49:05
actually enforce the rule of law that they have and have the political stomach to do it. I don't think this is a partisan issue. I 00:49:12
think this is something both parties agree on. I've had many talks with people not only on on the right side of the aisle, but 00:49:19
also on the left side of the aisle. 00:49:25
And and they're all in favor of fixing what is broken when it comes to to immigration again. When I was out in DCA few weeks ago, 00:49:33
I urged our Congressional delegation. 00:49:39
Have the political will get this fixed and the other Commissioners that were with Commissioner James and myself unanimously agreed 00:49:45
with that. 00:49:50
However, this is a resolution which is a document of action. 00:49:56
We're simply not taking action in this resolution. I think it erodes the quality of what a resolution is for, It takes away from 00:50:00
the purpose of it and therefore it's not the appropriate tool. I do agree with Commissioner James. We all have various. 00:50:09
Media platforms that we can go on and take a political stance, should we choose any personal stance, should we choose. However, 00:50:19
that's not using the instruments of government for our own political purposes. 00:50:25
That's not the proper rule. And so therefore I am not in favor of a resolution that doesn't take any action as far as this board 00:50:32
goes and and what I am able to ascertain from it. So with that, there is a motion on the floor from commissioner saying for 00:50:39
approval, second from Commissioner Buck. I'll go ahead and call the call, we'll have a roll call. Bill, please. 00:50:46
Mike Freeman. 00:50:56
No, Scott. James. What are you saying? Perry back. Kevin Ross? No, That emotion dies 2:00 to 3:00. 00:50:58
Commissioners Ross, Freeman and James voting no. 00:51:11
That concludes new business. On to planning. 00:51:15
Item number one, consider a request to withdraw application for site specific development plan and use by special review permit 00:51:18

Chris Gapping, Department Planning Services. This site is north of an adjacent dispersed Dr. and approximately 750 feet West of 01:03:07
County Road 5. 01:03:11
The building was never built in. Interesting aside on this, at the time this was applied for, we had the lock coverage requirement 01:03:15
in agricultural subdivisions. We no longer have that as part of our code. So they were to go forward. Today they wouldn't have to 01:03:21
do anything. So they wish to withdraw any questions for Christian. 01:03:26

This concludes planning brings us to public comment. This is the time when anybody is allowed to come forth, share any concerns or 01:03:54
comments you have with the County Commissioners. We ask that you please come to the podium up front here. State your name, your 01:03:59
address for the record, and keep your comments to 3 minutes. 01:04:04
On anything that's not on today's agenda. Thank you, Commissioner Freeman. Does anybody have any public comment? 01:04:11
Come on up, man. 01:04:19
Good morning. Good morning. 01:04:22
My name is Lynn Tales and I live at 2160 144th Ave. in Greeley, Co. 01:04:31
And I just want to remind you, we are walking in unchartered waters right now. 01:04:36
You've already had a big discussion about this, so I'm going to share with you my story. Last Thursday evening at Union Colony 01:04:41
Civic Center, Mayor Gates presented the state of Gray message to the citizens of the area. It was well received for the community. 01:04:47
A burning question I wanted to have answered was are illegals coming and are in our area? Everyone I asked that work for the city 01:04:54
of Greeley. Orwell County had no idea or wouldn't give an answer. 01:05:01
One City of Greeley employee sitting next to me had the answer. Yes, they are here. 01:05:08
Who is sending them? Who is allowing it to happen? 01:05:15
Well, who is placing them in our area? 01:05:19
We have been watching the past year what is happening in the sanctuary cities across the country. 01:05:22
The cities are being destroyed. 01:05:27
Denver is broken. Collapsing financially and leaving the illegals on their own. Denver has placed the city employees on extended 01:05:30
layoffs. 01:05:34
And they were to pay for the needs of the illegals. 01:05:38
What are we doing to our own citizens? 01:05:41
We're no longer a sovereign state. Maybe that is the point. 01:05:44
This invasion of illegals as a planned and intentional move to destroy a country and bring it to great chaos. 01:05:49
All you have to do is watch who is allowing it and encouraging the invasion. What do you plan to do to protect the citizens? 01:05:55
As this is the role of our leaders. 01:06:03
And your positions as county commissioners, you have the power, like the governor of the county. 01:06:05
Royal County is recognized today as a safe place to live, according to the citizens in the community. 01:06:11
Will it continue to be like that in two months? 01:06:17
I chose to become a U.S. citizen and went through the naturalization process as a former citizen of Canada. 01:06:20
There was order to the process and all the laws were followed by both protecting the US border. 01:06:26
As a young person, my parents and I had to report our green cards until I chose to become a citizen. 01:06:32
What are we experiencing? 01:06:37
There's chaos, confusion, not to mention the sex trafficking of women and children, horrible drug trafficking, the cartels 01:06:40
involvement and the utter disregard and respect for human life, our borders, our citizens and our communities. 01:06:47
I plead with you to act on something to protect the citizens of Well County. 01:06:54
I hope you are bold enough to protect us, the citizens of Royal County, and do something now before it is too late. 01:07:01
May God give you over some of the courage to do so. Thank you. Thank you. 01:07:08
Anybody else? 01:07:18
Morning. 01:07:22
Again, just remember to state your name and address for the record. 01:07:24
My whole address or just the street address? Yeah. Thank you. Hi. Natalie Tennant. I live on Mount Andrew Drive in Severance, Co. 01:07:28
Good morning. Good morning. 01:07:38
I would like to thank Commissioner Singh for bringing this to my attention first, I would also like to thank Commissioner James 01:07:41
for connecting with me and being informative for allowing for following up with me. I think you both for your time. 01:07:48
As a concerned resident of all county, I'm here to express my strong support for prioritizing. 01:07:57
Well-being in the interest of our local residents over the concerns of illegal immigrants and to urge you. 01:08:03
Sorry, very passionate about this as well too. It's OK to urge you not to designate our county as a sanctuary county. 01:08:09
I understand and I hear you all that you do not want this to be that, and I respect that. 01:08:19
What you say and what we do are two different things though. OK, I understand that the topic of immigration can be polarizing. 01:08:26
That is essential to address this issue in a manner that upholds the rule of law. 01:08:31
And protects the rights and welfare of our community. By not becoming a sanctuary county, we can ensure that our limited 01:08:38
resources. 01:08:41
Are directed towards the safety and prosperity of our town residents. It's important to acknowledge that illegal immigration poses 01:08:46
challenges to our county. 01:08:50
Including potential strains on public service, job competition and public safety concerns. 01:08:54
And taking a conservative approach and not providing sanctuary, we can send a clear message to the that White County values law 01:09:01
abiding residents who contribute to our community. 01:09:06
I respectfully request that you consider alternative strategies to address immigration concerns while maintaining the integrity of 01:09:12
our county. 01:09:16
Collaborating with federal agencies and enforcing existing immigration laws. 01:09:20
Which we spoke on can help ensure that our community remains safe and welcoming. Welcoming place for legal residents. 01:09:26
Furthermore, I encourage you to further evaluate the potential consequences of adaption of adapting. 01:09:34
Century County status, which you've all stated that you do not want to do. So I thank you for that. 01:09:40
This is also written before you all spoke today. 01:09:47
In 3 minutes we'll come try. You're getting close to get it 45 seconds. 01:09:50
Setting the impact on public safety, education, health care and economic stability is essential to make informed decisions that 01:09:54
reflect conservative values and needs of our kind residents. 01:09:59
I would like to say there's more, but I want to add a little personality to this. I wasn't going to, but I'm going to. 01:10:06
My husband works in Denver. 01:10:13
Every day. He is also a veteran. He served our country. I'm not using that as a crutch to get sympathy from for any of you to do 01:10:15
anything. What I'm saying is he comes home to Wall County and he feels safer. 01:10:22
Are not going to Denver. He wishes that his employment would allow him to not have to do that, or to allow us to, you know, go 01:10:29
somewhere while camping where we do feel safer. I ask you to seriously consider. 01:10:36
Taking some form of action for we the people that you're solidifying saying that while county is not going to become sanctuary. 01:10:43
Thank you. Thank you. 01:10:48
Everybody else have public comment this morning. 01:10:54
Good morning, ma'am. 01:11:00
State your name and address. Summit to town Colorado. I will try to control myself because I feel very passionate about this and 01:11:06
I'm quite disgusted that you do not acknowledge the resolution for anti sanctuary status. 01:11:14
As a form of action, as several other cities are already implementing. 01:11:22
So to say first, that is not affirmative action. 01:11:30
2nd that you think the sale has the power to enforce a non camping band. 01:11:33
To protect this county is ridiculous. 01:11:40
They dropped by 4 buses. Anybody doesn't know this? Four buses are going as a golden crowd. 01:11:44
What happened to those people? Where are they? Cable put a strain on one schools. Schools are basically data for children that 01:11:51
don't speak English only. They'll be here, they'll be in the schools, they'll be overcrowding. The what is happening in other 01:11:57
cities is the children are not receiving their education they deserve. 01:12:03
Because of the situation. 01:12:10
Second, what about sheltering when we show up? OK, they can't camp. What are you going to do with them? 01:12:12
So it's gonna let you know we can't camp here. Never mind. 01:12:21
They're dropping them off by the busloads. It's going to continue. Are you saying we never said for a century that has no power at 01:12:24
all? 01:12:28
It's going to financially impact everyone in this county. 01:12:32
For many, many ways, it's going to have dire consequences if you do not stand up for the citizen of Weld County. 01:12:36
Which effects? All of our entire state. I have children here, our grandchildren here. We spend plenty of money. 01:12:44
They should be depend on what happens here. 01:12:50
This is a severe problem. There are ones with dire consequences if you do not take action personally and for the citizens. 01:12:55
Thank you. Thank you. 01:13:03
Somebody else have public comment? 01:13:09
Good morning. Just remember, state your name and address please. 01:13:20
My name is Bobby showing 2885 42nd Ave. and it's not a platform or discussion piece. It's more of a question to you guys. My 01:13:24
concern today was that I wanted to see us take a bold stance on the illegal immigration issue like we did with Covad. 01:13:32
And I think everybody commended you. 01:13:39
Over and over for the bird stance you took, that was the opposite of what Denver was doing in the county South of us. We were very 01:13:42
anti enforcing of masks. We kept our businesses open and we really appreciated the commissioner standing behind us and taking that 01:13:50
stance because it wasn't a popular opinion with Colorado in in poll. So my question today is why are we not doing the, you know, 01:13:57
not taking action on the immigration when we weren't not taking action on the COVID? 01:14:04
I guess I just don't understand the difference. So if we could maybe understand that there would be more people that understood 01:14:12
why we're not taking an inaction with this revolution and making it and making it go away. That was really my question here, the 01:14:17
difference. Thank you. Thank you. 01:14:22
Any other public comment? 01:14:31
Good morning. Please remember state your name and address. Good morning, Commissioners. For the record, Steven Grant. 01:14:36
2405 Dr. Evans Co. 01:14:49
22 year old, 22 year Greeley, resident senior pastor of Destiny Christian Center and also author of the book Fixing Immigration. 01:14:53
In today's meeting, item number 10 was to pass a resolution expressing support for the University of Northern Colorado. It says 01:15:02
nothing. It does nothing. 01:15:08
You're disingenuous in your approach. Everything begins with words. Everything begins with resolve. 01:15:14
Or else, what county will become the place where morals come to die? 01:15:21
Now as such, Jesus Christ said, by your words you shall be justified, and by your words you shall be condemned. It all begins with 01:15:26
words. 01:15:30
And then moves to action. 01:15:34
With that in mind, I have documentation as a pastor where I have been invited to meetings to take care of these refugees with 01:15:37
Lutheran Family Services and other organizations that are operating right now. I have a an e-mail dated October 1st. 01:15:45
Of 2023 dealing with that. They're here, they're coming. They will be quietly washed. 01:15:54
Through all your Family Services and all of the things that are going on and for you to quietly say we're not going to do 01:16:01
anything. 01:16:05
As representatives of We the People is disingenuous. This is a different season. You see yourselves as an extension of state 01:16:09
government, but your home rule, you're actually elected by us. We are we the People. It's not tyranny to impose and enforce the 01:16:15
doctrine of the Western magistrates. 01:16:22
It is actually integrated is that which created the Bank of Cardiff, the Declaration of Independence and other items. We as well 01:16:28
county have a responsibility to stand against what is going on in the larger context of things, whether it is abortion, 01:16:35
immigration, Human Services, public services. 01:16:42
It's fun to spend other people's money, but it's always OPM opium. 01:16:49
And we don't want you spending our money, our time, our taxes, and we don't want you. 01:16:54
Saying in God we trust and then not living it. 01:17:00
It's up behind you and you need to pay attention to that. I urge you to reconsider your actions today when it comes to this 01:17:05
resolution. 01:17:09
Thank you. Thank you. 01:17:13
Good morning. 01:17:19
I just take your name and address for the record. Thank you. OK. Bob Ricci, Greeley Co. 01:17:24
I think we got a lot of lip service for Mr. Scott this morning. 01:17:31
That try to make his appointment or his opinion that you guys can't do something. It's time for you guys to stand up. 01:17:35
And take charge of this issue. 01:17:44
And do something to protect your people in this county. 01:17:47
And I don't see that. 01:17:52
All you have to do is make resolution to take care of your US. 01:17:54
But you don't care about us. Everything here, it seems to appear to me. You're worried about worrying about your fancy words, what 01:17:58
you can spin just like any other politician. 01:18:04
And it gets tiresome to sit back in the back and watch what you guys are doing to this county. 01:18:11
Because you want to take a stance. We have two people in this up here that took a better stance to the guys that should have. 01:18:18
And I appreciate what you've done for us. 01:18:26
Because we got three that don't care about the substance of this county. 01:18:28
And lives will be on. Their bloodshed will be on you. 01:18:34
When things start happening. 01:18:39
So what's going to happen? 01:18:41
And you're the closet, everyone of you guys. 01:18:45
Except for two. And I appreciate Miss Day and Lori for what they've done and thank you. 01:18:50
Sorry, you forgot to take your address. Do you mind giving that for the record? 01:18:59
And if anybody is speaking, we ask that you sign in to the sheet. It is a process. So we got to have record of who is speaking 01:19:03
today. 01:19:07
Any other public comment? 01:19:12
Yes, ma'am. Come on up. 01:19:14
Good morning. I'm Piano Evans, 4170 County Road 49. 01:19:26
Hudson, Co. 01:19:31
I just want to tell you that an incident I came across last week. 01:19:34
Suddenly I think she's 74 year old. 01:19:40
Woman was talking to me. I was in my friends business in Kingsburg and she was homeless, an experience she had at Q Soopers. 01:19:43
In Brighton, which is 2 blocks away from White County on 50th. 01:19:53
She was bringing out her groceries from the grocery store. 01:20:01
And she was surrounded. 01:20:04
By several. 01:20:07
