Moved to place the 10th Amendment Sanctuary on the agenda. 00:10:47
But it basically says whereas pursuant to the color statue of county home rule charter and our authority and stating that the 10th 00:10:52
Amendment to the United States Constitution is part of the rights. 00:10:57
Because our farmers and ranchers for water rights that are undeniably there's a use by rights and we as a board of county 00:11:37
commissioners have an obligation as a bully pulpit to say this is unconstitutional. We need to stand up for our farmers and 00:11:42
ranchers. 00:11:47
And at this time, I would like Miss Sylvester to come up and describe why she's asking us to do this. Not appropriate. If this is 00:11:53
this is your proof of the agenda. And I'll move the 10th Amendment Sanctuary to the agenda and ask for a second and a yes vote. 00:12:02

Works is recommending the award to DBE Manufacturing in a cost of 100 at a cost of $150,732.40. 00:14:18

which was June 30th, 20 which is until June 30th, 2024. Because of this short timeline and the need to also establish a contract 00:14:35

Number six, consider them in the bylaws for 401K savings plan and 457 deferred compensation plan. Judiciary Committee and 00:20:09
authorized Department of Finance to sign. Good morning Commissioner Cheryl Patelli, finance. This changes the members of the 401K 00:20:15
and 457 committee. 00:20:22
Since the Director of Finance and Administration position was split, we are now replacing that position on this committee with the 00:20:28
Controller. 00:20:32
All right. Anybody any questions for Cheryl on those? 00:20:38
Yes, the last page says that the the chair looks like I have to get back on that page committee chair where his or her delegate 00:20:42
may revise bylaws anytime in his her sole discretion. That seems like a pretty broad power now that I'm reading that. 00:20:50
Can we strike that? 00:21:00
And have that replaced by the committee, a vote of the committee majority. I don't have a problem with that, OK. 00:21:02
You guys agree to that? 00:21:09
I'm not making a limit. Well, this is a pretty big plan. You don't want one person just making a decision at his rehearsal 00:21:11
discretion. So if Cheryl has no problem, I'd like to amend this to have a majority of vote of the entire committee on that last, 00:21:16
that very last line on page 4. 00:21:22
I'm looking at the County Attorney. 00:21:29
I mean, you could probably do that, but I would need to set that through. 00:21:36
Our advisors on the retirement and on that plan, I don't know if it's a requirement. 00:21:45
Mr. James. 00:21:52
I agree with the Commissioner Shane Settlement. I'd like to the County Attorney to have a couple of minutes to look at it. So 00:21:54
therefore I move that we continue this matter until Wednesday, the 12th of June at 9:00 AM. Second, thank you very much. All 00:21:59
right. 00:22:04
My motion for continuance till June, did you say 12th? Yeah, whatever Wednesday is to at 9:00 AM signed by Commissioner saying 00:22:09
further discussion. 00:22:15
None. All those in favor of the continuance till June 12th at 9:00 AM signify by saying aye aye. All opposed same sign and that 00:22:22
item carries for continuance till June 12th 5 to 0. 00:22:28
Item number seven, consider 4th amendment to office lease agreement 822 7th St. Greeley and authorized chair to sign JP Chase, JP 00:22:36
Morgan Chase Bank National Association chairman. This is the 4th amendment to the lease for Chase Bank. 00:22:45
At the Chase building occupying that space downstairs on the 1st floor, it would take it through the time frame of they would they 00:22:54
would have the ability to have some consecutive five year terms that would go from 2024 through 20/29/2020, nine through 2034 and 00:23:05
2034 through 2039 at the rates that are put in. 00:23:15
On page I believe it's. 00:23:26
Three, two or three, so under #10. 00:23:28
This is consistent with the Second Amendment that was done prior to the. 00:23:34
County buying the property. 00:23:42
And so they were allowed to go through 2039 if they so choose. The rates that are there reflect. 00:23:46
Pretty much almost exactly what was in that Second Amendment. 00:23:57
Any further questions for Bruce? 00:24:05
Move to approve the resolution. Motion by Commissioner James for approval of the resolution second by Commissioner Freeman. 00:24:07
Further discussion. 00:24:11
Hearing none, all those in favor signify by saying aye aye. All opposed. Same sign and the 4th amendment to the office lease 00:24:16
agreement for JP Morgan Chase Bank National Association passes 5 to 0. Item number 8. Consider recommendation for appointment of 00:24:24
Scott K James to Greeleywell County Housing Authority. Move to approve second motion by Commissioner Freeman to approve Scott 00:24:31
James to the Greeley Well County Housing Authority. Second by Commissioner Buck. Further discussion. 00:24:39
Some questions, Mr. Chair, I had questions and ask. The resolution does not say what the makeup of the rest of that board is. 00:24:47
Do we know what to make of the rest of the board is? 00:24:56
I sure do. I don't. Go ahead, Mr. James. Bylaws may indicate what the makeup is. We have 4 appointments, two appointments, two 00:25:00
appointments. OK, well, kind of has two appointments to the agreeable Housing Authority. One individual had resigned. I believe 00:25:05
that. 00:25:11
The really world Housing Authority present prevents tremendous opportunity than the affordable housing space. Nothing in the 00:25:18
bylaws, nothing in our code or ordinance, it prohibits me from from serving on that board. As somebody who works in that space and 00:25:24
closely with DHS everyday, I believe it's a prudent to talk with me quite frankly and so therefore it has for your support. 00:25:29
Further questions? 00:25:36
It wasn't whether you can or couldn't serve. My question is what the makeup of the board is. And I just am concerned, as I always 00:25:39
am, if we can have more citizens participate in that space rather than the elected official. 00:25:45
That would be my preference just because it's really serving them and then making it. I think I'd give preference to somebody who 00:25:52
is in the community, in that space. So that's why I'm asking for the makeup of the board because honestly, I'm not sure at this 00:25:59
moment. It's flipped over quite a bit who who's on the Welfare County Authority housing right now. 00:26:05
They are Julie Anna, the deputy at city attorney. I'm sorry Deputy Greeley administrator had Joanna Kitten. 00:26:12
So she would be another governmental type. So, so to speak. Everybody else is is individuals. Everybody else is citizens as you 00:26:23
say and then the innovative citizens I believe and after conversations with agreement Housing Authority with a retirement Tom with 00:26:30
quite frankly the. 00:26:36
But what do they call that if they're in they're on the radar of of the feds. I I think it's appropriate as we go through the 00:26:43
hiring of a new of a new executive director that Weld County have me and I am happy to step aside when we get that new executive 00:26:51
director hired and when we get that board stabilized and and moving forward in the correct direction. You've made your definitely 00:26:58
made a great case. I will be supporting this today. 00:27:05
I will do the motioning and second OK. 00:27:13
All right. Do we have a motion or second on this here we do any further discussion? 00:27:18
All right hearing none all in favor signify by saying aye aye. All opposed. Same sign and Scott K James will be appointed to the 00:27:24
Well County Housing Authority 5 to 0 and #9 consider resolution regarding declaration of disaster emergency and authorized chair 00:27:31
to sign any necessary documents. Roy Roy. 00:27:37
Morning Krishna's brother to sell with the office Emergency Management Commissioners. On May 28th there's a severe thunderstorm 00:27:45
that came through pretty much central Will County. 00:27:50
From developing, uh, too much, uh, focused in on the, the Greeley area and dropping about four inches of rain in a 2 1/2 hours 00:27:58
within the last two weeks. The city of Greeley, Johnstown, militant area and the external properties outside of Greeley to the 00:28:05
east have been filing the damage assessment reports. As of as of this morning, we have 279 properties that have been affected, 00:28:13
personal properties, businesses or homes and 77 businesses or public infrastructure. 00:28:20
That has been affected most of that's what the city of Greeley. We have a few, the county has a few roads that were damaged and 00:28:28
some buildings that were flooded, but not to the extent of what Greeley has seen. With that, we're sitting right about $3.4 00:28:34
million in damage from the storm and the. 00:28:39
The impact of that won't necessarily get us to a federal declaration for any public assistance, that being government facilities, 00:28:47
but the impact of citizens is pretty steep. 00:28:52
So the purpose of requesting the disaster declaration is really to support Greeley and the recovery efforts. 00:28:58
The process is accounting has to sign a disaster declaration to start that support process. And so our request now is coming to 00:29:05
coming before you this morning to sign the disaster declaration and that'll in part of that process. 00:29:12
Activate our emergency operations plan and part of that is the recovery annex of that with support and who has role in that is 00:29:23
Human Services and the health department. I talked to Director Ulrich and I think was on Friday or I'm sorry Wednesday, I guess it 00:29:30
was after our after our work session and part of the disaster declaration by the board signing that will activate the emergency 00:29:36
SNAP funds. 00:29:43
For citizens that may need that. So there's a lot of steps going forward in that. The other thing that we're requesting is that we 00:29:51
seek assistance from the governor on any support or state support that they could provide on the recovery for citizens as well. 00:29:57
Excellent word. Any questions for? 00:30:05
Roy, regarding this matter, I'll move to approve the declaration for disaster emergency and authorized chair to sign any necessary 00:30:09
documents. Second motion by commissioner saying for approval of the disaster emergency declaration, second by Commissioner Park, 00:30:15
further discussion hearing none. All those in favor signify by saying aye aye, all opposed, same sign and that item carries 5 to 00:30:21
0. Thank you, Roy, good luck. 00:30:27

for damage to county roads which is directly attributed to activities on the oil and gas location. 00:32:31
Thanks, Jason. This board, have any questions for Jason? Mr. James? Jason, I'm sorry, I'm having difficulty following along in my 00:33:14

today just because I have some concerns. Thank you. 00:33:48
Any further questions for Jason, Mr. James? Mr. Chair, move we approve on. I'm sorry. 00:33:54

I just have to obviously come up here and thank all of you, quite a journey this has been, but it's opened up new doors and my 00:36:37
mind as far as education on how government works. 00:36:43
I can't thank you enough for working together with me in the community and doing the right thing in this. We thought this was 00:36:53
going to be a tough battle in the beginning, but it's not because it was already written in Law counties code. So I just want to 00:36:59
thank you guys for locking that up and doing this. My husband's in the audience and she's probably going to get upset with me, but 00:37:05
he's going to be able to breathe in log counting knowing that his commissioners did this for him and our family. And I appreciate 00:37:11
you all. Thank you very much. 00:37:17
Anybody else wish to make public comment? 00:37:23
Morning. Good morning, Commissioner Sergeant 1611139 LaSalle, Colorado 80645. I am a Parrot trooper and a farmer, and I'm also an 00:37:35
oil and gas worker here in Wealth County. And I just want to commend you as an intelligence analyst on passing this ordinance. I 00:37:41
don't think the State of Colorado understands a threat to our democracy. 00:37:47
In this county, and I just want to commend you for passion, authorities to keep us safe, preserving our way of life and preserving 00:38:24
our American values. Thank you. Thank you, Sir. 00:38:28
Anybody else wish to make public comment today towards this matter? 00:38:35
All right. I'll go ahead and close public comment and I'll bring it back to the board. 00:38:40
Let's see. 00:38:46
So, Mr. Chair, one of the things that this ordinance is still missing is the fact that we need to make sure that we add language. 00:38:49
So I propose an amendment that we add language to so we do not misuse taxpayer funds in all departments. Because as it turns out, 00:38:56
we do have nine programs, eight of which we do spend county money on, programs that do not ask for ID. We've had several 00:39:04
whistleblowers acknowledge that we have people who are legal taking advantage of those services. 00:39:12
And Australia citizens and they said that you know, one of the questions I had back was well I've never received health care 00:39:20
without an ID before. Some of that includes prenatal services. And it's already been discussed in several town halls that you know 00:39:26
when when folks come here and, and have children that. 00:39:32
You know, it, it, it kind of adds to that whole, you know, come here if you are here, not by legal integration. And as the 00:39:39
gentleman just mentioned, over 40% of the immigration coming into this country are from countries outside of Mexico and outside of 00:39:46
some of these Latin American countries. They're coming from Russia, they're coming from China, they're coming from places, as he 00:39:53
said, do not have our best intent, do not intend on being. 00:40:01
Or having those American ideals. So I think it's really, really important that we send a message that we truly are a non sanctuary 00:40:09
county by closing that loophole that we currently have. And I urge that we adopt this amendment to include that we will not misuse 00:40:17
any taxpayer funds because yes, we are paying for staff and supervisors in each of those programs that does take county funds. So 00:40:24
I would urge a yes vote on the amendment. 00:40:32
That was in the original resolution that I presented, and I'm happy, very happy to have started this conversation and get this 00:41:13
rolling. But let's add this amendment. Let's add it today. It's been voted down to times. Now. Please add this amendment. Sorry. 00:41:20
We will not misuse any taxpayer funds. Mr. St. has a motion for an amendment on the floor. Is there a second? 00:41:27
Hearing none, that amendment dies with no second. I would bring it back to the board for consideration. I'll move to approve this 00:41:37
ordinance, Mr. Chair, but I'm going to continue to educate the public on what's going on here because we are saying thank you very 00:41:43
much for the motion. Is there a second? 00:41:49
Second, Mr. Freeman has seconded, we have a motion and a second for final reading of Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 05. Motion by 00:41:57
Commissioner saying second by Commissioner Freeman, further discussion. Now you can speak. Commissioner Buck. Thank you, Mr. 00:42:03
Chair, and I'm just thrilled that this is happening. And I do see Bob, I see and I do see Natalie Tennant in the audience. I would 00:42:10
love if the two of you could come up to me. This is what? 00:42:17
Happens when you make a difference in your well county government. And I just want to appreciate the town hall effort that we did. 00:42:24
It was incredible. Natalie, you did a great job of leading that discussion. Bob, you were instrumental right bar behind right 00:42:31
along with her. But if you, the two of you could come up, I would like to present our challenge according to you. We want you to 00:42:39
know that we've got your back and you have our backs in doing what's right for well Towning. 00:42:46
So I would say let's reserve that opportunity for if this passes, Commissioner. 00:42:54
So, but it has not yet. So is there further discussion regarding code ordinance 20/24/05? 00:43:02
All right, hearing none, I will call the call. All those in favor of Code Ordinance 202405 signify by saying aye, aye, all 00:43:10
opposed, same sign and Code Ordinance 202405 does pass 5 to 0. Commissioner Buck, if you'd like to present your challenge coin, 00:43:17
that would be an opportunity. 00:43:23
I'll get you. 00:43:33
And it was remarkable. 00:43:39
Thank you. I appreciate you absolutely in there. Thank you. Thank you so much. 00:43:53
Thank you, Mr. Chair, for the moment of personal privilege. You're welcome. Item number 12, First reading of Code Ordinance 00:44:05
2024-12 in a matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 2 Administration on the Weld County Code firearms. Mr. 00:44:13
Chairman, this is a provision that deals with recently passed Senate Bill 24, Dash 131. 00:44:21
And specifically you can see the provision that it talks about in it's on page one of the code ordinance that is before you. In 00:44:30
fact it deals hasn't included in their section 1812105. 00:44:39
.3 subparagraph 1B that says was permitted by a local government is described section 4B, which includes counties on the property 00:44:49
or within a building in which so you can't provide or bring firearms. 00:44:59
Onto those places that are worse that chambers of galleries or galleries of local governments governing body are located and 00:45:10
meeting local governments governing body is being conducted or the official office of any elected member of local governments 00:45:18
governing body or the chief executive officer the local government is located. So on page two what this does is it provides for 00:45:26
the carrying of the firearm. 00:45:35
Is permitted in the admin building which which you've got your offices and also your chambers which is this. 00:45:44
Also, it says than any building where the board is conducting a meeting as defined in section 2464021 B of CRS, which is the Open 00:45:54
Meetings Act. It also includes the definition of the term firearm, which the state statute refers to, but it's in section 181901, 00:46:04
subparagraph 3, subparagraph H, which means. 00:46:14
Any handgun automatic. 00:46:25
Revolver, pistol, rifle shot down a rudder and smitter device capable or intended to be capable of discharging boards, cartridges, 00:46:28
or other explosive charges. 00:46:35
So. 00:46:44
In essence, what this does is it engage the prohibition that was in specifically so there was created in Senate Bill 131. 00:46:45
Excellent work, Bruce. Any questions for Bruce? 00:46:59
All right, this is a public hearing. Should anybody wish to make comment to coordinates 2024-12, now is your opportunity. Please 00:47:04
come forward to the podium, state your name and address for the record, and keep your comments to three minutes, please. 00:47:11
This is also why it's really good to have work sessions that have an entire board presence so we can work through this. 00:47:52
I did not have a work session on asylum. I'm glad we speed this up just a little bit, but let's add that language. So we are truly 00:47:57
a Second Amendment sanctuary county and all county property, including parking lots, for a lot of these altercations to happen so 00:48:02
our employees and our citizens can protect themselves. 00:48:07
I will second that I I think it's worthy of the discussion, but I'm I'm not sure. Well, I'll second it. 00:48:18
All right, there's a motion from commissioner saying for an amendment. 00:48:26
Second, by Commissioner Buck, Mr. James, hey, Mr. Chairman, Senate Bill 24, one, was it 131, whatever that abomination was, simply 00:48:29
define spaces in that Senate bill. God grants his rights to the Constitution, protects him. Colorado legislature tried to take him 00:48:37
away. They defined those quote UN quote sensitive spaces in Senate Bill 131. What our ordinance does is properly counters 00:48:45
according to the Senate bill. 00:48:53
It just simply negates their Senate bill. Our rights are protected. 00:49:01
And they are not infringed, so to speak, by the Colorado legislature, as they defined in Senate Bill 131. Parking lots still carry 00:49:08
all the things. 00:49:12
This is just simply counters. Senate Bill 131, the amendment is not needed and I don't think valid. I would agree with what 00:49:18
Commissioner James said. This is specific to that bill in specific areas. It's not included anywhere else. We don't need to be 00:49:25
saying something that's already that. We already have those rights, so it's not needed. 00:49:31
Miss Buck, did you have a comment? I would concur with Commissioner James because as it's spelled out in that Senate bill, this is 00:49:37
the areas where they were prohibiting. We are countering those specific areas to which they were prohibiting. Therefore, I don't 00:49:44
believe the amendments needed because our county code already takes care of those areas and it's not needed. 00:49:50
With that missing. 00:49:57
I'm gonna counter with this. When people recode a lot when it says is permitted, well, I understand the argument is important to 00:50:00
say exactly what we mean. It's very, very important because we want to make sure that people understand that we are protecting 00:50:08
rights everywhere. And I'm grateful to have helped leave the discussion. As far as expanding carrying rights for employees, 00:50:15
obviously citizens already have those rights. I want to make sure it's clear to both. 00:50:23
That anywhere in this county, if you step on the county grounds. 00:50:30
You are allowed to carry and I don't think that's exactly clear in here. In fact, we might even be winning it. I do not want that 00:50:35
danger of winning it just to this building or other buildings where we are having a meeting. There's a very good possibility we 00:50:40
are limiting ourselves. 00:50:45
Either earlier this year or last year, I forget me for forgetting, but we already authorized all our staff to carry and I mean, 00:50:52
are you negating that ordinance? No one. I'm glad I pushed that ordinance through through some big. 00:50:59
Everybody worked on SO. However, why do we need to pass an ordinance? 00:51:06
That states something that's already codified within our code, and there's no need to change. That's duplicative and it's 00:51:13
unnecessary. 00:51:17
Expanding something is always better than limiting that's that's a tenant. 00:51:24
Number one is you don't have an ordinance that prohibits people from carrying concealed carry weapons on any property. 00:51:31
That is owned by the county. 00:51:43
You could. There's two places in Colorado statutes that allow for that. One exception is courthouse, but that is governed by 00:51:46
judicial, the 19th Judicial District, and operated as such. 00:51:53
So you don't have an ordinance that does that. So they have the right to bring order weapons onto those properties. 00:52:02
You don't prohibit it. The second thing is that that actually is a good point to deal with Senate Bill 131. 00:52:13
That probably saying the Wall County Administration building and property located at 1150 O Street. 00:52:24
That would probably be a good thing to do to add. Then the second thing would be into any building and property where the Board of 00:52:33
Kennedy Commissioners is conducting a meeting. 00:52:40
And that that I think would fit with the prohibition. It would again negate the prohibition that is set forth in Senate Bill 131. 00:52:48
So I would recommend that actually you add. So it does say that while Kenny Administration building and property located 1150 L 00:52:58
Street and #2 any building and property where the Board of Tenant Commissioners is conducting a meeting. 00:53:09
I think the thing we need to be careful revenue and that's why you have to stay as to where we're having meetings like you are, 00:53:19
Bruce. And we can't simply say any building. We are not allowed nor is the public allowed, nor is the sheriff's staff allowed to 00:53:26
carry guns inside the jail. And that is county property. So you can't simply say any building. So that's why we have to counter 00:53:34
what's specifically spelled out in this Senate bill and Miss Buck. 00:53:41
Thank you, Mr. Chair. And that would be appropriate to amend in and 2nd, 3rd readings. I believe we can move forward. First of 00:53:49
all, you have a motion on the floor to amend. I'll change my amendment to include what Attorney Barker just said. I'll have 00:53:54
another. 00:53:58
So basically what he's saying is for number one and #2 well, Ken, administration, building and properties as properties are 00:54:05
property, property, property and #2 in the building with the border, county commissioners are conducting meetings that charge 00:54:11
defined in Section 24-6/4O21B CRS and property. So I'll make that amendment and then my amendment. Commissioner Sain is amended 00:54:17
her amendment. 00:54:24
Commissioner Buck that since you seconded, are you still OK with your second two Commissioner Saints amendment, amendment now 00:54:31
since we're on first reading, this gives us an opportunity to have a work session, but this is what the this this issue, well this 00:54:37
type of. 00:54:43
Umm, complications seem to always arise on the moment of instead of a discussion, and I'll leave it right there, but I will still 00:54:50
2nd. 00:54:56
And did you have another comment? All right, we do have a second for Commissioner Sayings amendment which incorporates Attorney 00:55:03
Parker's language of property under both items. Any further discussion on the amendment? 00:55:12
If he says yeah, bring your weapons in, OK, you can do it. If he says no, you can't bring weapons in, he's the keeper of the jail 00:55:55
and he says no, you can't do that, So he couldn't. 00:56:02
All right, further discussion on the amendment, Mr. James. 00:56:10
That we put this language into obviously the ordinance, and then we can have that conversation at a work session as we always do 00:56:15
between 1st and 2nd readings. 00:56:19
What do you do? Typically have our work sessions immediately after our first reading. That is correct, alright. 00:56:25
So I probably need to open this back up for public comment because it's been a minute. We need to vote on the amendment. Thank you 00:56:32
for your help there, Commissioner James. All right, all those roll call, please, on those in favor of the amendment to first 00:56:38
reading of Code Ordinance 2024 District Mike Freeman. 00:56:44
Hey, John Bruce's exclamation mark. I'll vote yes. Scott. Yes. What do you think? This expands right to yes. Payback. Yes. Kevin 00:56:51
Ross. Yes. The amendment to Code Ordinance 2024-12, including the language property. 00:56:59
On page two under A&B. 00:57:07
Is accepted and I will bring it back to. Do I need to open it back up for public comment again, Scott, there's no harm in doing 00:57:11
that. I figured there wasn't. I'll open it back up for public comment. If anybody wishes to speak to the discussion we've been 00:57:17
having regarding Code Ordinance 2024-12, now is your opportunity. Please come forth to the podium, state your name and address. 00:57:24
Keep your comments to 3 minutes. 00:57:31
All right. I see no public comment again for this matter. I'll go ahead and close public comment and bring it back to the board 00:57:41
for consideration. I have the Second Amendment, How about that Second Amendment? On the Second Amendment, here's. 00:57:48
I'm just making sure continue on this thing. Yes, Sir. Here's what I'd like to do. Again, I want to push back on this notion that 00:57:59
we always have work sessions. 00:58:04
Between the first, that is the case. However, I think we should do it from now on when we put in a new quarter. That's refreshing 00:58:10
so that we have those discussions. First, I would propose the amendment be to all county properties. 00:58:16
And move out other jurisdictions. 00:58:23
That the sheriff may be on control of or the 19th Judicial District. 00:58:29
This thing has a limit on the floors or a second. 00:58:35
That amendment dies with no second. Mr. James, should I move? We approve on proofs First reading Code Ordinance 2024-12, the 00:58:41
motion by Commissioner James to approve on First reading Code Ordinance 2024-12, as amended. 00:58:47
With a second by Commissioner, **** any further discussion. 00:58:54
All right, hearing none, all those in favor signify by saying aye aye, all opposed same signs. And that item carries 5 to 0 on 00:58:59
first reading. Item number 13, first reading of code ordinance 2024, Dash 11 in the matter of repealing and enacting with 00:59:06
amendments, Chapter 2, administration of the well County Code per diem. 00:59:13
Good morning, Cheryl Patelli, Finance. 00:59:24
This amendment would change our current travel policy in the code to allow not only for actual meal expenses as as, but now, but 00:59:27
also per deal an employee chooses per diem over the actual meal expenses. This per diem rate would be set by the US General 00:59:35
Service Administration guidelines. 00:59:42
Not right support. Have any questions for Cheryl? 00:59:51
All right, I'll go ahead and open this up to the public. If the public has any comments they wish to make towards the first 00:59:55
reading of Code Ordinance 2024 Dash 11, now is your opportunity. Please come forward to the podium. State your name and address 01:00:00
for the record. Keep those comments to three minutes, please. 01:00:05
All right, seeing none, I'm going to go ahead and close public comment, bring this matter back to the board. 01:00:11
Mr. Mr. James, I move we approve on first first reading Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 11. 01:00:17
That's great. Second, a motion for approval of Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 11 from Commissioner James. Second, my Commissioner 01:00:23
saying further discussion. 01:00:28
All right, hearing none. All those in favor signify by saying aye aye. All opposed. Same sign and turn 24-11 passes on first 01:00:34
reading 5 to 0. That concludes new business. This brings us to public comment. 01:00:42
Now is the public's time to come forth and state anything they wish to to the board. We ask. Keep your comments to three minutes. 01:00:51
If you're unable to be here today and would like to e-mail us, you can do so at publiccomment@well.gov or CTV at weld.gov. Or you 01:00:58
can do it the old-fashioned way with snail mail. Well, county clerk to the board, PO Box 7581150, OH St. Greeley, Co. 01:01:05
80632 Does anybody from the public wish to make comment today? 01:01:12
All right. We'll go ahead and close public comment and we'll adjourn our regular meeting and we'll take a 5 minute break here and 01:01:18

cross-border. 00:10:41
Moved to place the 10th Amendment Sanctuary on the agenda. 00:10:47
But it basically says whereas pursuant to the color statue of county home rule charter and our authority and stating that the 10th 00:10:52
Amendment to the United States Constitution is part of the rights. 00:10:57
Because our farmers and ranchers for water rights that are undeniably there's a use by rights and we as a board of county 00:11:37
commissioners have an obligation as a bully pulpit to say this is unconstitutional. We need to stand up for our farmers and 00:11:42
ranchers. 00:11:47
And at this time, I would like Miss Sylvester to come up and describe why she's asking us to do this. Not appropriate. If this is 00:11:53
this is your proof of the agenda. And I'll move the 10th Amendment Sanctuary to the agenda and ask for a second and a yes vote. 00:12:02

International Incorporated. However, they submitted bid pricing that does not match the quantities that were listed in the 00:13:54
requirements. The vendor was contacted and agreed this was an error in their submittal. 00:14:02
Therefore, the error results in incomplete bid. Second low bidder is DBE Manufacturing and meets specifications. Therefore, Public 00:14:09
Works is recommending the award to DBE Manufacturing in a cost of 100 at a cost of $150,732.40. 00:14:18

which was June 30th, 20 which is until June 30th, 2024. Because of this short timeline and the need to also establish a contract 00:14:35

Number six, consider them in the bylaws for 401K savings plan and 457 deferred compensation plan. Judiciary Committee and 00:20:09
authorized Department of Finance to sign. Good morning Commissioner Cheryl Patelli, finance. This changes the members of the 401K 00:20:15
and 457 committee. 00:20:22
Since the Director of Finance and Administration position was split, we are now replacing that position on this committee with the 00:20:28
Controller. 00:20:32
All right. Anybody any questions for Cheryl on those? 00:20:38
Yes, the last page says that the the chair looks like I have to get back on that page committee chair where his or her delegate 00:20:42
may revise bylaws anytime in his her sole discretion. That seems like a pretty broad power now that I'm reading that. 00:20:50
Can we strike that? 00:21:00
And have that replaced by the committee, a vote of the committee majority. I don't have a problem with that, OK. 00:21:02
You guys agree to that? 00:21:09
I'm not making a limit. Well, this is a pretty big plan. You don't want one person just making a decision at his rehearsal 00:21:11
discretion. So if Cheryl has no problem, I'd like to amend this to have a majority of vote of the entire committee on that last, 00:21:16
that very last line on page 4. 00:21:22
I'm looking at the County Attorney. 00:21:29
I mean, you could probably do that, but I would need to set that through. 00:21:36
Our advisors on the retirement and on that plan, I don't know if it's a requirement. 00:21:45
Mr. James. 00:21:52
I agree with the Commissioner Shane Settlement. I'd like to the County Attorney to have a couple of minutes to look at it. So 00:21:54
therefore I move that we continue this matter until Wednesday, the 12th of June at 9:00 AM. Second, thank you very much. All 00:21:59
right. 00:22:04
My motion for continuance till June, did you say 12th? Yeah, whatever Wednesday is to at 9:00 AM signed by Commissioner saying 00:22:09
further discussion. 00:22:15
None. All those in favor of the continuance till June 12th at 9:00 AM signify by saying aye aye. All opposed same sign and that 00:22:22

Item number seven, consider 4th amendment to office lease agreement 822 7th St. Greeley and authorized chair to sign JP Chase, JP 00:22:36
Morgan Chase Bank National Association chairman. This is the 4th amendment to the lease for Chase Bank. 00:22:45
At the Chase building occupying that space downstairs on the 1st floor, it would take it through the time frame of they would they 00:22:54
would have the ability to have some consecutive five year terms that would go from 2024 through 20/29/2020, nine through 2034 and 00:23:05
2034 through 2039 at the rates that are put in. 00:23:15
On page I believe it's. 00:23:26
Three, two or three, so under #10. 00:23:28
This is consistent with the Second Amendment that was done prior to the. 00:23:34
County buying the property. 00:23:42
And so they were allowed to go through 2039 if they so choose. The rates that are there reflect. 00:23:46
Pretty much almost exactly what was in that Second Amendment. 00:23:57
Any further questions for Bruce? 00:24:05
Move to approve the resolution. Motion by Commissioner James for approval of the resolution second by Commissioner Freeman. 00:24:07

agreement for JP Morgan Chase Bank National Association passes 5 to 0. Item number 8. Consider recommendation for appointment of 00:24:24
Scott K James to Greeleywell County Housing Authority. Move to approve second motion by Commissioner Freeman to approve Scott 00:24:31
James to the Greeley Well County Housing Authority. Second by Commissioner Buck. Further discussion. 00:24:39
Some questions, Mr. Chair, I had questions and ask. The resolution does not say what the makeup of the rest of that board is. 00:24:47
Do we know what to make of the rest of the board is? 00:24:56
I sure do. I don't. Go ahead, Mr. James. Bylaws may indicate what the makeup is. We have 4 appointments, two appointments, two 00:25:00
appointments. OK, well, kind of has two appointments to the agreeable Housing Authority. One individual had resigned. I believe 00:25:05
that. 00:25:11
The really world Housing Authority present prevents tremendous opportunity than the affordable housing space. Nothing in the 00:25:18
bylaws, nothing in our code or ordinance, it prohibits me from from serving on that board. As somebody who works in that space and 00:25:24
closely with DHS everyday, I believe it's a prudent to talk with me quite frankly and so therefore it has for your support. 00:25:29
Further questions? 00:25:36
It wasn't whether you can or couldn't serve. My question is what the makeup of the board is. And I just am concerned, as I always 00:25:39
am, if we can have more citizens participate in that space rather than the elected official. 00:25:45
That would be my preference just because it's really serving them and then making it. I think I'd give preference to somebody who 00:25:52
is in the community, in that space. So that's why I'm asking for the makeup of the board because honestly, I'm not sure at this 00:25:59
moment. It's flipped over quite a bit who who's on the Welfare County Authority housing right now. 00:26:05
They are Julie Anna, the deputy at city attorney. I'm sorry Deputy Greeley administrator had Joanna Kitten. 00:26:12
So she would be another governmental type. So, so to speak. Everybody else is is individuals. Everybody else is citizens as you 00:26:23
say and then the innovative citizens I believe and after conversations with agreement Housing Authority with a retirement Tom with 00:26:30
quite frankly the. 00:26:36
But what do they call that if they're in they're on the radar of of the feds. I I think it's appropriate as we go through the 00:26:43
hiring of a new of a new executive director that Weld County have me and I am happy to step aside when we get that new executive 00:26:51
director hired and when we get that board stabilized and and moving forward in the correct direction. You've made your definitely 00:26:58
made a great case. I will be supporting this today. 00:27:05
I will do the motioning and second OK. 00:27:13
All right. Do we have a motion or second on this here we do any further discussion? 00:27:18
All right hearing none all in favor signify by saying aye aye. All opposed. Same sign and Scott K James will be appointed to the 00:27:24
Well County Housing Authority 5 to 0 and #9 consider resolution regarding declaration of disaster emergency and authorized chair 00:27:31
to sign any necessary documents. Roy Roy. 00:27:37
Morning Krishna's brother to sell with the office Emergency Management Commissioners. On May 28th there's a severe thunderstorm 00:27:45
that came through pretty much central Will County. 00:27:50
From developing, uh, too much, uh, focused in on the, the Greeley area and dropping about four inches of rain in a 2 1/2 hours 00:27:58
within the last two weeks. The city of Greeley, Johnstown, militant area and the external properties outside of Greeley to the 00:28:05
east have been filing the damage assessment reports. As of as of this morning, we have 279 properties that have been affected, 00:28:13
personal properties, businesses or homes and 77 businesses or public infrastructure. 00:28:20
That has been affected most of that's what the city of Greeley. We have a few, the county has a few roads that were damaged and 00:28:28
some buildings that were flooded, but not to the extent of what Greeley has seen. With that, we're sitting right about $3.4 00:28:34
million in damage from the storm and the. 00:28:39
The impact of that won't necessarily get us to a federal declaration for any public assistance, that being government facilities, 00:28:47
but the impact of citizens is pretty steep. 00:28:52
So the purpose of requesting the disaster declaration is really to support Greeley and the recovery efforts. 00:28:58
The process is accounting has to sign a disaster declaration to start that support process. And so our request now is coming to 00:29:05
coming before you this morning to sign the disaster declaration and that'll in part of that process. 00:29:12
Activate our emergency operations plan and part of that is the recovery annex of that with support and who has role in that is 00:29:23
Human Services and the health department. I talked to Director Ulrich and I think was on Friday or I'm sorry Wednesday, I guess it 00:29:30
was after our after our work session and part of the disaster declaration by the board signing that will activate the emergency 00:29:36
SNAP funds. 00:29:43
For citizens that may need that. So there's a lot of steps going forward in that. The other thing that we're requesting is that we 00:29:51
seek assistance from the governor on any support or state support that they could provide on the recovery for citizens as well. 00:29:57
Excellent word. Any questions for? 00:30:05
Roy, regarding this matter, I'll move to approve the declaration for disaster emergency and authorized chair to sign any necessary 00:30:09
documents. Second motion by commissioner saying for approval of the disaster emergency declaration, second by Commissioner Park, 00:30:15

0. Thank you, Roy, good luck. 00:30:27

Thanks, Jason. This board, have any questions for Jason? Mr. James? Jason, I'm sorry, I'm having difficulty following along in my 00:33:14

Good morning, Natalie Tennant, Mount Andrew, Dr. Severance Co. I Remembered. 00:36:30
I just have to obviously come up here and thank all of you, quite a journey this has been, but it's opened up new doors and my 00:36:37
mind as far as education on how government works. 00:36:43
I can't thank you enough for working together with me in the community and doing the right thing in this. We thought this was 00:36:53
going to be a tough battle in the beginning, but it's not because it was already written in Law counties code. So I just want to 00:36:59
thank you guys for locking that up and doing this. My husband's in the audience and she's probably going to get upset with me, but 00:37:05
he's going to be able to breathe in log counting knowing that his commissioners did this for him and our family. And I appreciate 00:37:11
you all. Thank you very much. 00:37:17
Anybody else wish to make public comment? 00:37:23
Morning. Good morning, Commissioner Sergeant 1611139 LaSalle, Colorado 80645. I am a Parrot trooper and a farmer, and I'm also an 00:37:35
oil and gas worker here in Wealth County. And I just want to commend you as an intelligence analyst on passing this ordinance. I 00:37:41
don't think the State of Colorado understands a threat to our democracy. 00:37:47
In this county, and I just want to commend you for passion, authorities to keep us safe, preserving our way of life and preserving 00:38:24
our American values. Thank you. Thank you, Sir. 00:38:28
Anybody else wish to make public comment today towards this matter? 00:38:35
All right. I'll go ahead and close public comment and I'll bring it back to the board. 00:38:40
Let's see. 00:38:46
So, Mr. Chair, one of the things that this ordinance is still missing is the fact that we need to make sure that we add language. 00:38:49
So I propose an amendment that we add language to so we do not misuse taxpayer funds in all departments. Because as it turns out, 00:38:56
we do have nine programs, eight of which we do spend county money on, programs that do not ask for ID. We've had several 00:39:04
whistleblowers acknowledge that we have people who are legal taking advantage of those services. 00:39:12
And Australia citizens and they said that you know, one of the questions I had back was well I've never received health care 00:39:20
without an ID before. Some of that includes prenatal services. And it's already been discussed in several town halls that you know 00:39:26
when when folks come here and, and have children that. 00:39:32
You know, it, it, it kind of adds to that whole, you know, come here if you are here, not by legal integration. And as the 00:39:39
gentleman just mentioned, over 40% of the immigration coming into this country are from countries outside of Mexico and outside of 00:39:46
some of these Latin American countries. They're coming from Russia, they're coming from China, they're coming from places, as he 00:39:53
said, do not have our best intent, do not intend on being. 00:40:01
Or having those American ideals. So I think it's really, really important that we send a message that we truly are a non sanctuary 00:40:09
county by closing that loophole that we currently have. And I urge that we adopt this amendment to include that we will not misuse 00:40:17
any taxpayer funds because yes, we are paying for staff and supervisors in each of those programs that does take county funds. So 00:40:24
I would urge a yes vote on the amendment. 00:40:32
That was in the original resolution that I presented, and I'm happy, very happy to have started this conversation and get this 00:41:13
rolling. But let's add this amendment. Let's add it today. It's been voted down to times. Now. Please add this amendment. Sorry. 00:41:20
We will not misuse any taxpayer funds. Mr. St. has a motion for an amendment on the floor. Is there a second? 00:41:27
Hearing none, that amendment dies with no second. I would bring it back to the board for consideration. I'll move to approve this 00:41:37
ordinance, Mr. Chair, but I'm going to continue to educate the public on what's going on here because we are saying thank you very 00:41:43
much for the motion. Is there a second? 00:41:49
Second, Mr. Freeman has seconded, we have a motion and a second for final reading of Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 05. Motion by 00:41:57
Commissioner saying second by Commissioner Freeman, further discussion. Now you can speak. Commissioner Buck. Thank you, Mr. 00:42:03
Chair, and I'm just thrilled that this is happening. And I do see Bob, I see and I do see Natalie Tennant in the audience. I would 00:42:10
love if the two of you could come up to me. This is what? 00:42:17
Happens when you make a difference in your well county government. And I just want to appreciate the town hall effort that we did. 00:42:24
It was incredible. Natalie, you did a great job of leading that discussion. Bob, you were instrumental right bar behind right 00:42:31
along with her. But if you, the two of you could come up, I would like to present our challenge according to you. We want you to 00:42:39
know that we've got your back and you have our backs in doing what's right for well Towning. 00:42:46
So I would say let's reserve that opportunity for if this passes, Commissioner. 00:42:54
So, but it has not yet. So is there further discussion regarding code ordinance 20/24/05? 00:43:02
All right, hearing none, I will call the call. All those in favor of Code Ordinance 202405 signify by saying aye, aye, all 00:43:10
opposed, same sign and Code Ordinance 202405 does pass 5 to 0. Commissioner Buck, if you'd like to present your challenge coin, 00:43:17
that would be an opportunity. 00:43:23
I'll get you. 00:43:33
And it was remarkable. 00:43:39
Thank you. I appreciate you absolutely in there. Thank you. Thank you so much. 00:43:53
Thank you, Mr. Chair, for the moment of personal privilege. You're welcome. Item number 12, First reading of Code Ordinance 00:44:05
2024-12 in a matter of repealing and reenacting with amendments Chapter 2 Administration on the Weld County Code firearms. Mr. 00:44:13
Chairman, this is a provision that deals with recently passed Senate Bill 24, Dash 131. 00:44:21
And specifically you can see the provision that it talks about in it's on page one of the code ordinance that is before you. In 00:44:30
fact it deals hasn't included in their section 1812105. 00:44:39
.3 subparagraph 1B that says was permitted by a local government is described section 4B, which includes counties on the property 00:44:49
or within a building in which so you can't provide or bring firearms. 00:44:59
Onto those places that are worse that chambers of galleries or galleries of local governments governing body are located and 00:45:10
meeting local governments governing body is being conducted or the official office of any elected member of local governments 00:45:18
governing body or the chief executive officer the local government is located. So on page two what this does is it provides for 00:45:26
the carrying of the firearm. 00:45:35
Is permitted in the admin building which which you've got your offices and also your chambers which is this. 00:45:44
Also, it says than any building where the board is conducting a meeting as defined in section 2464021 B of CRS, which is the Open 00:45:54
Meetings Act. It also includes the definition of the term firearm, which the state statute refers to, but it's in section 181901, 00:46:04
subparagraph 3, subparagraph H, which means. 00:46:14
Any handgun automatic. 00:46:25
Revolver, pistol, rifle shot down a rudder and smitter device capable or intended to be capable of discharging boards, cartridges, 00:46:28
or other explosive charges. 00:46:35
So. 00:46:44
In essence, what this does is it engage the prohibition that was in specifically so there was created in Senate Bill 131. 00:46:45
Excellent work, Bruce. Any questions for Bruce? 00:46:59
All right, this is a public hearing. Should anybody wish to make comment to coordinates 2024-12, now is your opportunity. Please 00:47:04
come forward to the podium, state your name and address for the record, and keep your comments to three minutes, please. 00:47:11
This is also why it's really good to have work sessions that have an entire board presence so we can work through this. 00:47:52
I did not have a work session on asylum. I'm glad we speed this up just a little bit, but let's add that language. So we are truly 00:47:57
a Second Amendment sanctuary county and all county property, including parking lots, for a lot of these altercations to happen so 00:48:02
our employees and our citizens can protect themselves. 00:48:07
I will second that I I think it's worthy of the discussion, but I'm I'm not sure. Well, I'll second it. 00:48:18
All right, there's a motion from commissioner saying for an amendment. 00:48:26
Second, by Commissioner Buck, Mr. James, hey, Mr. Chairman, Senate Bill 24, one, was it 131, whatever that abomination was, simply 00:48:29
define spaces in that Senate bill. God grants his rights to the Constitution, protects him. Colorado legislature tried to take him 00:48:37
away. They defined those quote UN quote sensitive spaces in Senate Bill 131. What our ordinance does is properly counters 00:48:45
according to the Senate bill. 00:48:53
It just simply negates their Senate bill. Our rights are protected. 00:49:01
And they are not infringed, so to speak, by the Colorado legislature, as they defined in Senate Bill 131. Parking lots still carry 00:49:08
all the things. 00:49:12
This is just simply counters. Senate Bill 131, the amendment is not needed and I don't think valid. I would agree with what 00:49:18
Commissioner James said. This is specific to that bill in specific areas. It's not included anywhere else. We don't need to be 00:49:25
saying something that's already that. We already have those rights, so it's not needed. 00:49:31
Miss Buck, did you have a comment? I would concur with Commissioner James because as it's spelled out in that Senate bill, this is 00:49:37
the areas where they were prohibiting. We are countering those specific areas to which they were prohibiting. Therefore, I don't 00:49:44
believe the amendments needed because our county code already takes care of those areas and it's not needed. 00:49:50
With that missing. 00:49:57
I'm gonna counter with this. When people recode a lot when it says is permitted, well, I understand the argument is important to 00:50:00
say exactly what we mean. It's very, very important because we want to make sure that people understand that we are protecting 00:50:08
rights everywhere. And I'm grateful to have helped leave the discussion. As far as expanding carrying rights for employees, 00:50:15
obviously citizens already have those rights. I want to make sure it's clear to both. 00:50:23
That anywhere in this county, if you step on the county grounds. 00:50:30
You are allowed to carry and I don't think that's exactly clear in here. In fact, we might even be winning it. I do not want that 00:50:35
danger of winning it just to this building or other buildings where we are having a meeting. There's a very good possibility we 00:50:40
are limiting ourselves. 00:50:45
Either earlier this year or last year, I forget me for forgetting, but we already authorized all our staff to carry and I mean, 00:50:52
are you negating that ordinance? No one. I'm glad I pushed that ordinance through through some big. 00:50:59
Everybody worked on SO. However, why do we need to pass an ordinance? 00:51:06
That states something that's already codified within our code, and there's no need to change. That's duplicative and it's 00:51:13
unnecessary. 00:51:17
Expanding something is always better than limiting that's that's a tenant. 00:51:24
Number one is you don't have an ordinance that prohibits people from carrying concealed carry weapons on any property. 00:51:31
That is owned by the county. 00:51:43
You could. There's two places in Colorado statutes that allow for that. One exception is courthouse, but that is governed by 00:51:46
judicial, the 19th Judicial District, and operated as such. 00:51:53
So you don't have an ordinance that does that. So they have the right to bring order weapons onto those properties. 00:52:02
You don't prohibit it. The second thing is that that actually is a good point to deal with Senate Bill 131. 00:52:13
That probably saying the Wall County Administration building and property located at 1150 O Street. 00:52:24
That would probably be a good thing to do to add. Then the second thing would be into any building and property where the Board of 00:52:33
Kennedy Commissioners is conducting a meeting. 00:52:40
And that that I think would fit with the prohibition. It would again negate the prohibition that is set forth in Senate Bill 131. 00:52:48
So I would recommend that actually you add. So it does say that while Kenny Administration building and property located 1150 L 00:52:58
Street and #2 any building and property where the Board of Tenant Commissioners is conducting a meeting. 00:53:09
I think the thing we need to be careful revenue and that's why you have to stay as to where we're having meetings like you are, 00:53:19
Bruce. And we can't simply say any building. We are not allowed nor is the public allowed, nor is the sheriff's staff allowed to 00:53:26
carry guns inside the jail. And that is county property. So you can't simply say any building. So that's why we have to counter 00:53:34
what's specifically spelled out in this Senate bill and Miss Buck. 00:53:41
Thank you, Mr. Chair. And that would be appropriate to amend in and 2nd, 3rd readings. I believe we can move forward. First of 00:53:49
all, you have a motion on the floor to amend. I'll change my amendment to include what Attorney Barker just said. I'll have 00:53:54
another. 00:53:58
So basically what he's saying is for number one and #2 well, Ken, administration, building and properties as properties are 00:54:05
property, property, property and #2 in the building with the border, county commissioners are conducting meetings that charge 00:54:11
defined in Section 24-6/4O21B CRS and property. So I'll make that amendment and then my amendment. Commissioner Sain is amended 00:54:17
her amendment. 00:54:24
Commissioner Buck that since you seconded, are you still OK with your second two Commissioner Saints amendment, amendment now 00:54:31
since we're on first reading, this gives us an opportunity to have a work session, but this is what the this this issue, well this 00:54:37
type of. 00:54:43
Umm, complications seem to always arise on the moment of instead of a discussion, and I'll leave it right there, but I will still 00:54:50
2nd. 00:54:56
And did you have another comment? All right, we do have a second for Commissioner Sayings amendment which incorporates Attorney 00:55:03
Parker's language of property under both items. Any further discussion on the amendment? 00:55:12
If he says yeah, bring your weapons in, OK, you can do it. If he says no, you can't bring weapons in, he's the keeper of the jail 00:55:55
and he says no, you can't do that, So he couldn't. 00:56:02
All right, further discussion on the amendment, Mr. James. 00:56:10
That we put this language into obviously the ordinance, and then we can have that conversation at a work session as we always do 00:56:15
between 1st and 2nd readings. 00:56:19
What do you do? Typically have our work sessions immediately after our first reading. That is correct, alright. 00:56:25
So I probably need to open this back up for public comment because it's been a minute. We need to vote on the amendment. Thank you 00:56:32
for your help there, Commissioner James. All right, all those roll call, please, on those in favor of the amendment to first 00:56:38
reading of Code Ordinance 2024 District Mike Freeman. 00:56:44
Hey, John Bruce's exclamation mark. I'll vote yes. Scott. Yes. What do you think? This expands right to yes. Payback. Yes. Kevin 00:56:51
Ross. Yes. The amendment to Code Ordinance 2024-12, including the language property. 00:56:59
On page two under A&B. 00:57:07
Is accepted and I will bring it back to. Do I need to open it back up for public comment again, Scott, there's no harm in doing 00:57:11
that. I figured there wasn't. I'll open it back up for public comment. If anybody wishes to speak to the discussion we've been 00:57:17
having regarding Code Ordinance 2024-12, now is your opportunity. Please come forth to the podium, state your name and address. 00:57:24
Keep your comments to 3 minutes. 00:57:31
All right. I see no public comment again for this matter. I'll go ahead and close public comment and bring it back to the board 00:57:41
for consideration. I have the Second Amendment, How about that Second Amendment? On the Second Amendment, here's. 00:57:48
I'm just making sure continue on this thing. Yes, Sir. Here's what I'd like to do. Again, I want to push back on this notion that 00:57:59
we always have work sessions. 00:58:04
Between the first, that is the case. However, I think we should do it from now on when we put in a new quarter. That's refreshing 00:58:10
so that we have those discussions. First, I would propose the amendment be to all county properties. 00:58:16
And move out other jurisdictions. 00:58:23
That the sheriff may be on control of or the 19th Judicial District. 00:58:29
This thing has a limit on the floors or a second. 00:58:35
That amendment dies with no second. Mr. James, should I move? We approve on proofs First reading Code Ordinance 2024-12, the 00:58:41
motion by Commissioner James to approve on First reading Code Ordinance 2024-12, as amended. 00:58:47
With a second by Commissioner, **** any further discussion. 00:58:54
All right, hearing none, all those in favor signify by saying aye aye, all opposed same signs. And that item carries 5 to 0 on 00:58:59
first reading. Item number 13, first reading of code ordinance 2024, Dash 11 in the matter of repealing and enacting with 00:59:06
amendments, Chapter 2, administration of the well County Code per diem. 00:59:13
Good morning, Cheryl Patelli, Finance. 00:59:24
This amendment would change our current travel policy in the code to allow not only for actual meal expenses as as, but now, but 00:59:27
also per deal an employee chooses per diem over the actual meal expenses. This per diem rate would be set by the US General 00:59:35
Service Administration guidelines. 00:59:42
Not right support. Have any questions for Cheryl? 00:59:51
All right, I'll go ahead and open this up to the public. If the public has any comments they wish to make towards the first 00:59:55
reading of Code Ordinance 2024 Dash 11, now is your opportunity. Please come forward to the podium. State your name and address 01:00:00
for the record. Keep those comments to three minutes, please. 01:00:05
All right, seeing none, I'm going to go ahead and close public comment, bring this matter back to the board. 01:00:11
Mr. Mr. James, I move we approve on first first reading Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 11. 01:00:17
That's great. Second, a motion for approval of Code Ordinance 2024, Dash 11 from Commissioner James. Second, my Commissioner 01:00:23
saying further discussion. 01:00:28
All right, hearing none. All those in favor signify by saying aye aye. All opposed. Same sign and turn 24-11 passes on first 01:00:34
reading 5 to 0. That concludes new business. This brings us to public comment. 01:00:42
