Assistance, Support, Justice and Peace Signed by all Royal County Commissioners. 00:15:00
I see a remarkable people in the audience that I would love to have them all come up to the podium. I think we will have our 00:15:10
District Attorney, Michael Ward lead the charge. 00:15:15
Good morning, commissioners. Thank you very much for having us. And in all Canada, this is my favorite date of the year to come 00:15:22
visit the commissioners because I don't have to ask you for money. I don't have to ask you for anything else other than simply 00:15:27
your gratitude. And and that's why we're here this morning. 00:15:32
Every year for the last 10-12 fifteen years, I've had an opportunity to stand up and thank the members of the Victim Services 00:15:38
community in Lowell County. Not just my office, who I get to talk about all the time in front of you all, but all of the 00:15:43
organizations that I'm going to comment on and and introduce here in just a moment to you all. 00:15:49
Recently. 00:16:27
In a talk I got to give recently, I always make mention of victim services. Folks are the voices for victims before the victims 00:16:29
have their own voices back. That is extremely significant to these people because victims, when they have been victimized in 00:16:34
whatever way, often don't have their voice back. They don't know how to articulate what is meant to them, what is meant to their 00:16:40
families, what the impact is, both in the short term and the long term. And the people that I'm going to introduce have given 00:16:45
victims in this community for decades. 00:16:51
The voices that they need. 00:16:57
To be heard in the criminal justice system, to be heard in my office and to be heard. 00:17:00
By the defendants who have, hopefully they're being heard. 00:17:05
Who had victimized them? So I'd like to take a minute just to introduce the folks who are here. I also want to acknowledge some of 00:17:09
the victim services agencies that we work with. They weren't able to be here this morning, but I'll start with the folks that are 00:17:14
here in no particular order. 00:17:18
Greeley Police Department Law Enforcement Victim Services. I know Heather Wright is here. 00:17:24
You get to stand up and come up here later. 00:17:28
This is not your first time being here. 00:17:32
From the 19th Judicial District Administrative Office, who worked so closely with us about victims, compensation and bail issues, 00:17:34
and Amanda Mandek is here. 00:17:38
From Lutheran Family Services, Tammy Fisher. 00:17:43
Tiedman, I hope I pronounce your name right. Kendall and Melody Fick. 00:17:47
From Frederick Police Department, Law Enforcement Victims Assistance, Alexis Gutierrez and Madison Bergman. 00:17:52
Catholic Charities, Stephen McLaughlin. 00:17:58
From our own very own DHS, Jamie. 00:18:01
From a Woman's place, Beth Watts. 00:18:05
From Life Stores, Millie Stokes and the wonderful Chris Eisenhower. 00:18:08
Yeah, you get that title, Chris. 00:18:12
For my office, I'm very proud to introduce these folks, Carol Patch. I'm Archbeck. 00:18:18
Daisy Thursday, you all come up because. 00:18:24
Danny Michelle Barrera. 00:18:30
Veronica. 00:18:33
And I also want to acknowledge a few of our supervisors who are here because oftentimes I forget that the attorneys in my office 00:18:39
are also advocates on behalf of victims truly in the courtroom with the assistance of the folks behind me. So would you please 00:18:44
join me? I know all the commissioners will have comments for these amazing people, but please join me in a round of applause for 00:18:49
all the work that these folks do 365 days a year. 00:18:55
Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that there is our annual victims rights event this Friday starts at 8:30, right, 00:19:06
Bill? 00:19:11
It's over at the Riverside Cultural Center Library in Evans, and we have a lineup of wonderful speakers. So obviously we want to 00:19:15
extend the invitation to all five county commissioners. But thank you very much for this proclamation. It is incredibly important 00:19:22
and an opportunity to say thank you, which is not nearly enough for these folks. So thank you, Madam Chair. Thank you. 00:19:29
Mr. Attorney you wanted Scott James, Commissioner James. 00:19:38
I don't know what I have to say. I would know that would be a first. 00:19:43
Mr. District Attorney, I know it is in your hearts to pursue justice, but I know it is equally in your heart, not more so, to 00:19:48
pursue the restorative justice that these victims seek and and and need, or certainly deserving of. As important as it is that we 00:19:56
get the bad guy, it's even more important that we help the individual upon which the bed was was perpetrated. So, Sir, thank you. 00:20:04
For making sure that it's a part of your heart and instilled into the fabric of your office and folks who work in that realm. 00:20:12
Thank you so much for what you you do. I've grown a little closer to. 00:20:17
Your your efforts this year and I can tell you that I am certainly appreciative of our as are the people who have been on the 00:20:24
receiving end of your services. So thank you. 00:20:27
All right, Commissioner saying, and I just want to thank you, the O'Brien and this entire community together. We all need somebody 00:20:33
to walk alongside us in life. 00:20:37
And more so, the data is probably the worst day of people's lives, and being able to come around them is truly. 00:20:42
A mission, and it's something that is a calling and I just can't thank you enough. Thank you so much for doing this. 00:20:52
To Mr. Freeman. 00:20:59
And I also agree with everything that's been said as a victim of crime and knowing somebody that has gone through it, nothing is 00:21:29
better when they have somebody out there that can support them, give them some peace, restore that confidence that they may have 00:21:35
lost. So I just can't thank you enough. Appreciate all that you do. 00:21:42
And we would be honored to have a picture with you all so if we could get back and. 00:22:20
Present this. 00:22:26
I know. 00:22:33
That means you will be here too. 00:22:38
Understand that these two people in the back Shorty, I don't know where. 00:22:44
You got a kneel. 00:22:59

Organization for access to. 00:29:53
An employee engagement platform, our department for. 00:30:00
At least a few years has utilized this Gallup platform to conduct employee engagement surveys for our health department employees. 00:30:04
And of course, the platform allows for anonymous surveys and then provides metrics. 00:30:11
Both comparisons to other similar organizations and areas for potential improvement in the department, as well as toolkits and. 00:30:19
Other resources to help address issues that the survey finds. Again, it's a one year contract for $3000. We will utilize grant 00:30:30
funding for the contract. This was submitted to the Board on a past round dated April 2nd of 2024 and approved by 4 out of the 00:30:36
five commissioners and I recommend that the Board approve the contract with Gallant. 00:30:43
Any questions of the board? Yes, Commissioner saying yes, and I appreciate the time you took to speak with me the other evening. I 00:30:50
just saw some concerns because when probably when you started these contracts, we hadn't started our system with Qualtrics yet. 00:30:57
My concern is that we'll have some conflicting information that won't go together. 00:31:04
And we'll have two different employee surveys and maybe some confusion on that because some of the things you mentioned the 00:31:09
anonymous. 00:31:12
Surveys and metrics establishing that baseline, which takes a little bit of time. So I just spoke to Ryan about that, Ryan rose 00:31:15
about that as well. So that would be the only reason I I'd take a no vote today is just that I, I I think we need to stick with 00:31:22
the one survey over the other and I I appreciate applying for the grant and and having the extra coverage, but that's my concern. 00:31:29
Any other questions on the board move to approve second it's been moved by Commissioner Freeman, second by Commissioner James, all 00:31:38

This is essentially A facilities use agreement with District 6. One of the programs that our department has, I would call it a 00:32:13
resiliency program. It targets 5th graders going into 6th grade. 00:32:19
District 6 is one of the organizations that we partner with. This MOU will allow us to continue to utilize District 6 facilities 00:32:27
for those activities. We had a similar agreement in place since August 19th since August of 2019. I should say it was a five year 00:32:33

families, what the impact is, both in the short term and the long term. And the people that I'm going to introduce have given 00:16:45
victims in this community for decades. 00:16:51
The voices that they need. 00:16:57
To be heard in the criminal justice system, to be heard in my office and to be heard. 00:17:00
By the defendants who have, hopefully they're being heard. 00:17:05
Who had victimized them? So I'd like to take a minute just to introduce the folks who are here. I also want to acknowledge some of 00:17:09
the victim services agencies that we work with. They weren't able to be here this morning, but I'll start with the folks that are 00:17:14
here in no particular order. 00:17:18

You get to stand up and come up here later. 00:17:28
This is not your first time being here. 00:17:32
From the 19th Judicial District Administrative Office, who worked so closely with us about victims, compensation and bail issues, 00:17:34
and Amanda Mandek is here. 00:17:38
From Lutheran Family Services, Tammy Fisher. 00:17:43
Tiedman, I hope I pronounce your name right. Kendall and Melody Fick. 00:17:47

For my office, I'm very proud to introduce these folks, Carol Patch. I'm Archbeck. 00:18:18
Daisy Thursday, you all come up because. 00:18:24
Danny Michelle Barrera. 00:18:30
Veronica. 00:18:33
And I also want to acknowledge a few of our supervisors who are here because oftentimes I forget that the attorneys in my office 00:18:39
are also advocates on behalf of victims truly in the courtroom with the assistance of the folks behind me. So would you please 00:18:44
join me? I know all the commissioners will have comments for these amazing people, but please join me in a round of applause for 00:18:49
all the work that these folks do 365 days a year. 00:18:55
Lastly, I would be remiss if I didn't mention that there is our annual victims rights event this Friday starts at 8:30, right, 00:19:06
Bill? 00:19:11
It's over at the Riverside Cultural Center Library in Evans, and we have a lineup of wonderful speakers. So obviously we want to 00:19:15
extend the invitation to all five county commissioners. But thank you very much for this proclamation. It is incredibly important 00:19:22
and an opportunity to say thank you, which is not nearly enough for these folks. So thank you, Madam Chair. Thank you. 00:19:29
Mr. Attorney you wanted Scott James, Commissioner James. 00:19:38
I don't know what I have to say. I would know that would be a first. 00:19:43
Mr. District Attorney, I know it is in your hearts to pursue justice, but I know it is equally in your heart, not more so, to 00:19:48
pursue the restorative justice that these victims seek and and and need, or certainly deserving of. As important as it is that we 00:19:56
get the bad guy, it's even more important that we help the individual upon which the bed was was perpetrated. So, Sir, thank you. 00:20:04
For making sure that it's a part of your heart and instilled into the fabric of your office and folks who work in that realm. 00:20:12
Thank you so much for what you you do. I've grown a little closer to. 00:20:17
Your your efforts this year and I can tell you that I am certainly appreciative of our as are the people who have been on the 00:20:24
receiving end of your services. So thank you. 00:20:27
All right, Commissioner saying, and I just want to thank you, the O'Brien and this entire community together. We all need somebody 00:20:33
to walk alongside us in life. 00:20:37
And more so, the data is probably the worst day of people's lives, and being able to come around them is truly. 00:20:42
A mission, and it's something that is a calling and I just can't thank you enough. Thank you so much for doing this. 00:20:52
To Mr. Freeman. 00:20:59
And I also agree with everything that's been said as a victim of crime and knowing somebody that has gone through it, nothing is 00:21:29
better when they have somebody out there that can support them, give them some peace, restore that confidence that they may have 00:21:35
lost. So I just can't thank you enough. Appreciate all that you do. 00:21:42
And we would be honored to have a picture with you all so if we could get back and. 00:22:20
Present this. 00:22:26

Good morning, commissioners. Jason Cheshire with the Health Department. This is a contract, A1 year contract with the Gallup 00:29:49
Organization for access to. 00:29:53
An employee engagement platform, our department for. 00:30:00
At least a few years has utilized this Gallup platform to conduct employee engagement surveys for our health department employees. 00:30:04
And of course, the platform allows for anonymous surveys and then provides metrics. 00:30:11
Both comparisons to other similar organizations and areas for potential improvement in the department, as well as toolkits and. 00:30:19
Other resources to help address issues that the survey finds. Again, it's a one year contract for $3000. We will utilize grant 00:30:30
funding for the contract. This was submitted to the Board on a past round dated April 2nd of 2024 and approved by 4 out of the 00:30:36
five commissioners and I recommend that the Board approve the contract with Gallant. 00:30:43
Any questions of the board? Yes, Commissioner saying yes, and I appreciate the time you took to speak with me the other evening. I 00:30:50
just saw some concerns because when probably when you started these contracts, we hadn't started our system with Qualtrics yet. 00:30:57
My concern is that we'll have some conflicting information that won't go together. 00:31:04
And we'll have two different employee surveys and maybe some confusion on that because some of the things you mentioned the 00:31:09
anonymous. 00:31:12
Surveys and metrics establishing that baseline, which takes a little bit of time. So I just spoke to Ryan about that, Ryan rose 00:31:15
about that as well. So that would be the only reason I I'd take a no vote today is just that I, I I think we need to stick with 00:31:22
the one survey over the other and I I appreciate applying for the grant and and having the extra coverage, but that's my concern. 00:31:29
Any other questions on the board move to approve second it's been moved by Commissioner Freeman, second by Commissioner James, all 00:31:38

resiliency program. It targets 5th graders going into 6th grade. 00:32:19
District 6 is one of the organizations that we partner with. This MOU will allow us to continue to utilize District 6 facilities 00:32:27
for those activities. We had a similar agreement in place since August 19th since August of 2019. I should say it was a five year 00:32:33
