growing the future of Workforce and whereas Employment services of Weld County. 00:05:50
Programs innovate and advance strategies to build a pipeline of skilled talent, starting in secondary education and continuing 00:05:56

Proclaim September 23rd, 2023 as Workforce Development Month. That's signed by all five county commissioners. 00:07:00
Thank you, Commissioner Tammy Grant, Deputy Director of the Department of Human Services and on behalf of Employment Services and 00:07:12
the Workforce Development Board, I would like to thank each of the members employees that represent us today from from the 00:07:18
Workforce Team and Employment Services. 00:07:23
Committee members, we've got a lot of people that support their a variety of committees that are not appointed to the workforce 00:07:29
board but do invaluable work throughout the year. The workforce boards commitment to fostering growth, opportunity and inclusivity 00:07:34
within our community. 00:07:38
Has been nothing short of phenomenal and they definitely support individuals from all walks of life. Their strategic initiatives 00:07:44
and collaborative approach have not only facilitated many meaningful employment, but have also contributed significantly to the 00:07:51
overall economic advancement for our region. Between July 1st, 2022 and June 30th of 2023, which is one of our program years, our 00:07:58
Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act team, there's three primary programs involved. 00:08:06
That they enrolled and served 588 individuals with significant barriers to employment. 00:08:13
Employment Services of Weld County is proud of its team for earning a National Association of Workforce Development Boards 2023. 00:08:21
UM Workforce Program of the Year. 00:08:29
ESWC has been a long time supporter of our local foster youth as you all know, offering a variety of Foster and kinship programs 00:08:32
that serve youth and those with various barriers to employment education. 00:08:39
As well as coming from diverse backgrounds. 00:08:46
On March 8th of 2023, Employment Services held its annual hiring event for young adults in partnership with the City of Greeley 00:08:49
for the Governor Summer job hunt and this year that that hiring event included 517 young adults with 32 different employers. This 00:08:57
year what was unique was they added a new component. Every year the team identifies new opportunities to strengthen that 00:09:04
initiative and this year they offered free head shots to help youth who are. 00:09:12
And looking for employment have a better professional appearance when they are seeking employment opportunities. They also 00:09:20
partnered with a couple of our local thrift stores including ARC to have available clothes for interviewing on site with changing 00:09:27
rooms and everything so so everybody's able to get proper attire before they're on on the site. Interviews and her friends library 00:09:35
actually brought laptops so that kids could apply and young adults could apply on the spot as well. 00:09:42
This year, the 2023 workforce regional. 00:09:50
The Regional Workforce Symposium is all about embracing a time of growth. As the world evolves, so do opportunities that lie 00:09:54
ahead. The Workforce Development Board intends to provide a gateway to understanding and harnessing the power of growth in the 00:10:02
workforce. The Symposium was hosted by Both Worlds and Lermer County and is a true regional approach to our economic development 00:10:09
and AIMS Community College will host this at the new Welcome Center again this year that will take place on September 26th. 00:10:17
This would be a time and place to connect with fellow professionals, thought leaders, industry experts, IT Embracing growth often 00:10:25
requires embracing change, and this year, symposium speakers will focus on how to adapt to the new challenges sees emerging 00:10:32
opportunities while also maintaining A resilient and positive mindset. 00:10:39
SWC has also a variety of other hiring events, including one that is specifically for older adults ages 50 and older. I think that 00:10:48
the new terminology that we're moving toward is wisdom at work because that's truly whether those individuals have an opportunity 00:10:55
to bring wealth of knowledge, have strong work ethic and interpersonal skills. Connecting employers with this age group of of 00:11:03
worker is really beneficial. 00:11:10
And also this year during workforce development month on September 19th from 9:00 to 10:30, Employment Services will host a 00:11:18
recruiting boot camp for employers which is free and open to all employers. It's a fast-paced master class on attracting, 00:11:26
screening, interviewing and ultimately securing the talent in a candidate driven environment. So I want to thank again. 00:11:34

One of the fun things about being on the cheer team that is the well Board County Commissioners is being able to sing the praises. 00:13:40
About the great county in which we live and one of the things I constantly hear the praises on is the effectiveness. Tammy of you 00:13:47
and all the amazing people there here in the room today. 00:13:51
It is such a feather in the cap of Weld County to be able to say, hey, we have these workforce programs that can help businesses, 00:13:56
existing businesses, help attract new businesses to our county. To say that we are here to provide you with the workers that you 00:14:02
need in, in a time where it's a little bit difficult to come by. Sometimes it is such a competitive advantage. 00:14:08
For writing well businesses to have you all do the amazing work that you do. 00:14:15
So congratulations, Tammy and team. Thank you for what you do. We appreciate you very much. 00:14:19
Absolutely agree with Commissioner James and I, I just want to say workforce development is in the room. You guys are amazing. I 00:14:26
was honored to be part of that board my first year and just was so humbled and honored just to feel the energy of that workforce 00:14:33
development and it's so exciting. And Greg, what you do with our youth, I could call you all of you out. You've just done a 00:14:40
amazing job. And I I did go I think it was like 26. I don't want to say too long, but I. 00:14:47
Went to the office to help with resume building. So I just find your job. I did OK, good. 00:14:54
Store. 00:15:03
So I just don't wanna go on too long, but just thank you so much for the all that you do for the individuals in Weld County. We 00:15:07
are so proud of you and so appreciate all your work. 00:15:12
Mr. Ross, you know, I I think workforce development is awesome. You know, we go by the mantra it's it's better to give that to. 00:15:20
Why is that? 00:15:57
A large portion of our community that you're directly having an impact on. So I say thank you, great job, appreciate. 00:15:58
They also say thank you so much and working together with Lermer County. 00:16:06
I believe that that process kind of started maybe last year even and I think that's been a a tremendous product shows that we can 00:16:10
work together across counties that our workforce actually moves across counties or rather dependent on each other. 00:16:16
And they're saying that really struck me as the the help that we're giving our young folks their first entering the workforce, 00:16:23
given that great start right off the bat, taking those headshots. 00:16:28
Helping them with the interview process, getting suits and coats or whatever it is for people regardless of age I'm guessing too. 00:16:34
So I just think that is also very tremendous that we're helping our young people get into the workforce and be the kind of 00:16:42
candidate that's going to attract the job of your dreams. So thank you. 00:16:48
And and I would agree, I don't even know what else to add to all that. So I'm just going to say thank you for what you guys do. It 00:16:54
is true we're recognized throughout the state as having one of the having the best workforce development and the best working 00:17:00
workforce Development Board. It's pretty exciting to be a part of that. So thank you for what you guys do every day and with that 00:17:06
we could take a picture that would be great. Go ahead and bring everybody in your team up with. 00:17:11
Good morning. 00:17:19
How are you? 00:17:24
What does this mean? 00:17:29
Nobody wants to be on the left and get you guys in a little bit when I have to tear it. 00:17:49

Alright. 00:18:02

2/3. 00:18:09
2/3. 00:18:13
Awesome. Thank you. Thank you everybody. Thank you. 00:18:15
Alright now. 00:18:38
You don't have to go. You can stay for the rest of the meeting. 00:18:51
Please. 00:18:55
OK, we have one more proclamation this morning This is. 00:18:58
Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month. 00:19:02
Of September 2023, where suicide is a complex issue that can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, orientation, income 00:19:04
level or background. And whereas over 48,000 deaths annually or attribute to suicide or suicide rates in Colorado, ranking six 00:19:12
nationally and 66 lives lost to suicide in Weld County during 2022. And whereas being a trusted person to turn to when someone is 00:19:20
feeling isolated or hopeless is one of the most important things we can do to prevent suicide. And we're actively. 00:19:27
Challenging stigma around mental health and building skills to increase the likelihood of someone feeling safe to open up without 00:19:35
fear of shame or judgment is the first step and whereas because of the collaboration, prevention and education efforts of N Range. 00:19:42
Suicide education and support services. Imagine zero of Weld County, numerous survivors and community partners. Hope, excuse me, 00:19:49
hope exists in Weld County. 00:19:54
And whereas N Range Behavioral Health Suicide Education and Support Services Program supports those who have lost someone to 00:19:59
suicide and provides education to Weld County residents that help. 00:20:04
World Critical suicide prevention skills and whereas September is recognized as National Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month 00:20:09
and the goal of promoting awareness surrounding suicide prevention resources and support available to all in our community and 00:20:15
whereas we encourage all residents to take the time to learn how to talk about mental health research suicide prevention. 00:20:22
Resources available nationally and throughout Will County check in on the well-being of family, friends and neighbors and show 00:20:28
genuine appreciation for the people in your life by any gesture you deem appropriate. Now, therefore, be it proclaimed by the 00:20:33
Boardwalk County Commissioners that September 2023 be known as Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month and call upon the community 00:20:39
to increase awareness and understanding of behavioral health and the need for appropriate and accessible services for all 00:20:44
citizens. 00:20:49
So I'm well 5 county committee. 00:20:54
That's a mouthful. Good morning, commissioners. Thank you so much for the opportunity to come and to just pause for a moment and 00:21:03
create awareness. It is very difficult to follow. Tammy, man, what a show that was. That was incredible and that was amazing. 00:21:10
I guess what I would want to just instill upon the room today and then also on you guys is just that we are so thankful to be a 00:21:18
part of Weld County. We will continue the work to try to truly accomplish 0. 00:21:25
Suicides in Weld County N Range has a department that is Suicide Education and Support Services, but we also work alongside A 00:21:31
coalition of like minded people who are really trying to snuff out. 00:21:37
Any level of suicidal ideation in the county and that group is called Imagine Zero and they do amazing, incredible work. One piece 00:21:44
of a detail that I just want to share with you guys. I learned from some suicide survivors. 00:21:51
They shared that it's not necessarily that they want to die, it's just that they want their pain to end and that is such a 00:21:58
different lens and we can help. 00:22:03
And so everyone in this room, if you know someone who is withdrawing, or if you know someone who you think might not be OK, just 00:22:08
connect with them and then refer them to us. We will catch the balls that you throw at us. 00:22:14
Thank you for the opportunity. 00:22:20
She was gonna say anything. 00:22:22
Hello, Thank you so much for giving the time for us to talk about suicide. You know, I've done a couple of these proclamations and 00:22:26
what I do know is that it's not always comfortable to even say the word suicide in public spaces. And that's something that we 00:22:31
actually are really trying to advocate for people to be comfortable with the words. So when we're in a situation where somebody 00:22:37
does. 00:22:42
Feel that they have an opportunity to reach out. When they do talk about it, it's not going to scare us away. And that's where we 00:22:47
get to save lives. That's when we get to come together and be that trusted person that we talk about in The Proclamation. A 00:22:54
trusted person for someone to come to and share their concerns and their challenges and fears without the fear of being judged. 00:23:01
One of the things where I or situations where I see this is really applicable in our community is with our rural and our AG 00:23:09
workers. We have a beautiful. 00:23:14
Culture of standing up on our own and being self-sufficient and being very proud, Strong workers. And there's a really fine line 00:23:21
to toe there because we are strong, we are proud and we are self-sufficient and we can't do a lot of our things alone when it 00:23:28
comes to our emotional challenges. We are wired to be connected and so trying to figure out how to help our community members 00:23:35
celebrate their rugged individualism. 00:23:42
And also know that it's OK to ask for help. That's a nut that we have not cracked. 00:23:50
And we need to do it together. So we have QPR trainings, we have mental health first aid trainings, and we need the community to 00:23:56
be a part of that so we can figure that out together in discussion and save lives. That's that's my soapbox. So thank you so much 00:24:01
for the time. 00:24:06
Mr. Daves. 00:24:15
A good showbox. Thank you for for standing on it. Let me hop up on there and knock you off you in a little bit because I know it's 00:24:16
not as as as educated as you are and uncertainly not as close to the scenario I have gone closer and more passionate about. 00:24:23
Opening up and and spreading that awareness of of of the prevention of suicide about how it's not something that that has to be 00:24:32
completed, about how there are ways that we can make that to. 00:24:37
That pain go away. 00:24:42
I was taken in in another venue. We were working on a system of care for for kids, and I was honored to sit on a panel where one 00:24:44
of the ladies with the Colorado Department of Human Services Directors Association talked about her experience with her brother. 00:24:52
Ohh, unfortunately did. 00:25:01
Die by suicide? 00:25:04
About how they went through processes and steps with him. 00:25:06
In trying to identify mental health. 00:25:09
And behavioral health and systems that he could plug into. And there was a roadblock at every turn. 00:25:11
She shared her own experience then of of later 6-7 years down the road going through breast cancer and about how with a physical 00:25:17
health issue, the doors opened, insurance covered, she walked through and now she is cancer free. 00:25:23
We need to create the same kind of seamless access for mental and behavioral health that we have in in our in our physical 00:25:29
healthcare system. We need to address it as whole person Wellness and not a separate thing because we need to take care of our 00:25:35
bodies and our minds and our spirits. And so thank you for the work that you do in in that measure. 00:25:42
I'm here for you. And let me let me sit behind you on the soapbox a little bit because we need to sing that song. Thank you. 00:25:48
You for bringing that to awareness because it is really important the whole person. 00:25:55
Mr. Buck Well, I I was serving in the legislature. I just have to say, N Range Behavioral Health was always the beacon. 00:25:59
Of hope for the statewide I mean you're you're you've done such a phenomenal job and. 00:26:07
Um, serving on the as a coordinator for the coroner's office. I just. 00:26:12
I I just can't get over the number of suicides that we have in our county. So I'm here for you and any help that I can offer. I 00:26:17
hope anybody out there that millions that are listening that if they have any issues that they can. 00:26:25
Reach out and and and call me and and and, but I just can't thank you enough for all your all that you're doing for our citizens. 00:26:33
Thank you very much. 00:26:37
Most of us. 00:26:42
Thank you. First and foremost, I think suicides touched everybody's lives in in some degree. I remember, I remember losing one of 00:26:44
my best friends he 26 years ago and your your life changes after that and you see the impact on families, loved ones around them, 00:26:52
those closest to them and even those on the periphery. How how those events impact them and make them. 00:27:00
Contemplate things, contemplate what they're going through and the services that you guys provide are are amazing, right? You you 00:27:09
truly help. 00:27:13
Individuals get that care thing right, have the ear that they need to share with, right? And so I say. 00:27:17
Thank you very much on that, Randy. We lose too many youth, too many veterans. 00:27:26
Every day to this tragic. 00:27:31
I'll call it a disease, but. 00:27:34
I appreciate the work you guys do to to help save lives, so thank you. 00:27:37
Mr. Savage. 00:27:41
And one of the things that has struck me about today is. 00:27:44
You'd mentioned things that we can do. 00:27:47
And I'll just read the last line again of this proclamation. Whereas we encourage all residents to take the time to learn to talk 00:27:50
about mental health. 00:27:54
Research suicide prevention resources available nationally and throughout Weld County. 00:27:57
Check in. 00:28:02
On the well-being of friends, family and neighbors. 00:28:04
All right. 00:28:08
And ensure genuine appreciation for the people in your life. 00:28:09
And I think if we do that, it pierces through the pain. 00:28:12
Do I matter? 00:28:17
Which is probably one of the number one questions, right? 00:28:19
Does anything I do matter? Do I matter? 00:28:22
When you reach out to somebody, you're affirming that they do. 00:28:24
And sometimes that encourages people to reach out. 00:28:28
And get the help that they need. So we have a very important role in this in the community. 00:28:31
And for our neighbors, those who live around us, we're charged to take care of our neighbors as ourselves. So. 00:28:35
Just thank you very much for. 00:28:41
Doing what you do, and I'm glad to bring this proclamation forward with the rest of the commissioners. 00:28:43
Yeah, and and I I agree with everything that's been said and I wanna say thank you as well. And I agree with Commissioner Ross. I 00:28:48
think, I think probably everybody has been touched by by suicide at some point. I've experienced it a couple of times with my best 00:28:53
friends, Dad, when we were just out of high school. 00:28:58

Explain includes bids. Move on to new business #1. Consider petition for abatement or refunded taxes for account number P 1414999. 00:33:24
Thank you, caller. 00:33:29
Identical equipment instead of an individual cost. So for example, instead of listing that 7 shares each cost approximately $800, 00:34:06
they're listed that the original cost was approximately $5900. So when they're multiply that $6000 by 7 shares, you'll end up with 00:34:12
approximately $42,000 for those chairs. My office reviewed this, but also didn't catch the mistake, so the same methodology 00:34:18
continued for the entire listing, which exponentially increased the value of the of the items of equipment, there were greater 00:34:24
than one single piece of equipment. 00:34:30
So Bank of Colorado contact with us when they received a much larger tax bill than expected. As a result, we have corrected the 00:34:37
calculation we are recommending for tax year 2022. You approve the petition for abatement and change the value from $1,552,599 to 00:34:47
$275,413.00. So it alters the tax from $43,699.91 to $7751.94 and results in a tax abatement of 35,000. 00:34:57
$947.97 I can see why they questioned it differently. Absolutely. I'm glad they got it. 00:35:07
Just want to know what a $42,000 chair feels like? Ohh, you might have to go to the legislature. 00:35:16
They would move we approve the petition for abatement or refund the taxes for account number P 1414999 for Bank of Colorado using 00:35:26
the figure stated by the assessor. 00:35:32

I guess you've got missed it. I've got, I've got adjourned. 00:47:40
I got sidetracked, sorry. 00:47:44
For the record, my name is Steve Katz and I'm in Greeley. 00:47:50
And I just want to make a comment about. 00:47:54
One thing is. 00:47:58
You had the mental health. 00:48:00
Suicide Awareness I few years back had a a good friend commit suicide. I want at least on this planet, I would think we commit 00:48:02
suicide. 00:48:07
Even his family didn't know. He couldn't sense it which, But anyway, I have an idea of what people feel. 00:48:13
That's not what's gonna talk about. I just wanted to share that. 00:48:22
Um, we talked about the last meeting I was. 00:48:26
I'm not. I was at my friend was at he saying he was saying something about ostream 59. Don't have a roundabout. 00:48:31
And what I understand from him. 00:48:41
You guys want wider lanes in the city like mural lanes. Well, I don't think we should have a roundabout there. But if you go into, 00:48:44
I think it should be wider than narrower because of your first of all, your big truck summarize and all that other out there, 00:48:53
number one. Number two, you got emergency vehicles and especially the fire trucks and things like that. 00:49:02
It just doesn't make sense having one, but if you do have one and they need to be wider. 00:49:13
And not narrow #2 is. 00:49:18
Understanding the moves and also. 00:49:23
And there is there is a nursing home that's had a cases to where I understand 2 cases of coronavirus. 00:49:25
And I understand that's starting to spread. 00:49:34
I just wanna know you're staying on it. Hopefully it doesn't get as far as. 00:49:38
We're getting 2020. I just wanna know. 00:49:42
You guys, this idea of what you're going to, you know, like keep things open or close or what? 00:49:46
I'm happy to answer. Sure, go right ahead. I personally and I can't speak for the rest of my board, but as we did in 2020, Steve, 00:49:57
I don't see well County acting to close any businesses, right we're going to allow people to freedoms. 00:50:03
To make their own choices, what they feel is in their best interest, what are they, however they want to protect their own health 00:50:09
or or not protect their health or deem what they see fit to do so whether that's wearing a mask or not wearing a mask, closing a 00:50:15
business, not closing a business. That is their personal choice and we are not going to intervene on that. Steve, thank you and I 00:50:20
would agree. As we said in 2020, it's a personal responsibility. 00:50:26
You do what's in the best interest of yourself, your family, your employees, whatever. But well, counties not gonna mandate 00:50:32
anything. 00:50:35
OK, then the third one is and one goes to Commissioner James. When is the next? Where, I mean where is the next MPO meeting is 00:50:38
tomorrow night at the Windsor Public Works building? 00:50:45
Answer OK. Thank you. Any other public comment? 00:50:52
OK. Seeing none, we are adjourned at 947. We'll be back at 10:00 for Wendy's. Thanks, everybody. 00:50:57

Workforce Team and Employment Services. 00:07:23
Committee members, we've got a lot of people that support their a variety of committees that are not appointed to the workforce 00:07:29
board but do invaluable work throughout the year. The workforce boards commitment to fostering growth, opportunity and inclusivity 00:07:34
within our community. 00:07:38
Has been nothing short of phenomenal and they definitely support individuals from all walks of life. Their strategic initiatives 00:07:44
and collaborative approach have not only facilitated many meaningful employment, but have also contributed significantly to the 00:07:51
overall economic advancement for our region. Between July 1st, 2022 and June 30th of 2023, which is one of our program years, our 00:07:58
Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act team, there's three primary programs involved. 00:08:06
That they enrolled and served 588 individuals with significant barriers to employment. 00:08:13
Employment Services of Weld County is proud of its team for earning a National Association of Workforce Development Boards 2023. 00:08:21
UM Workforce Program of the Year. 00:08:29
ESWC has been a long time supporter of our local foster youth as you all know, offering a variety of Foster and kinship programs 00:08:32
that serve youth and those with various barriers to employment education. 00:08:39
As well as coming from diverse backgrounds. 00:08:46
On March 8th of 2023, Employment Services held its annual hiring event for young adults in partnership with the City of Greeley 00:08:49
for the Governor Summer job hunt and this year that that hiring event included 517 young adults with 32 different employers. This 00:08:57
year what was unique was they added a new component. Every year the team identifies new opportunities to strengthen that 00:09:04
initiative and this year they offered free head shots to help youth who are. 00:09:12
And looking for employment have a better professional appearance when they are seeking employment opportunities. They also 00:09:20
partnered with a couple of our local thrift stores including ARC to have available clothes for interviewing on site with changing 00:09:27
rooms and everything so so everybody's able to get proper attire before they're on on the site. Interviews and her friends library 00:09:35
actually brought laptops so that kids could apply and young adults could apply on the spot as well. 00:09:42
This year, the 2023 workforce regional. 00:09:50
The Regional Workforce Symposium is all about embracing a time of growth. As the world evolves, so do opportunities that lie 00:09:54
ahead. The Workforce Development Board intends to provide a gateway to understanding and harnessing the power of growth in the 00:10:02
workforce. The Symposium was hosted by Both Worlds and Lermer County and is a true regional approach to our economic development 00:10:09
and AIMS Community College will host this at the new Welcome Center again this year that will take place on September 26th. 00:10:17
This would be a time and place to connect with fellow professionals, thought leaders, industry experts, IT Embracing growth often 00:10:25
requires embracing change, and this year, symposium speakers will focus on how to adapt to the new challenges sees emerging 00:10:32
opportunities while also maintaining A resilient and positive mindset. 00:10:39
SWC has also a variety of other hiring events, including one that is specifically for older adults ages 50 and older. I think that 00:10:48
the new terminology that we're moving toward is wisdom at work because that's truly whether those individuals have an opportunity 00:10:55
to bring wealth of knowledge, have strong work ethic and interpersonal skills. Connecting employers with this age group of of 00:11:03
worker is really beneficial. 00:11:10
And also this year during workforce development month on September 19th from 9:00 to 10:30, Employment Services will host a 00:11:18
recruiting boot camp for employers which is free and open to all employers. It's a fast-paced master class on attracting, 00:11:26
screening, interviewing and ultimately securing the talent in a candidate driven environment. So I want to thank again. 00:11:34

About the great county in which we live and one of the things I constantly hear the praises on is the effectiveness. Tammy of you 00:13:47
and all the amazing people there here in the room today. 00:13:51
It is such a feather in the cap of Weld County to be able to say, hey, we have these workforce programs that can help businesses, 00:13:56
existing businesses, help attract new businesses to our county. To say that we are here to provide you with the workers that you 00:14:02
need in, in a time where it's a little bit difficult to come by. Sometimes it is such a competitive advantage. 00:14:08
For writing well businesses to have you all do the amazing work that you do. 00:14:15
So congratulations, Tammy and team. Thank you for what you do. We appreciate you very much. 00:14:19
Absolutely agree with Commissioner James and I, I just want to say workforce development is in the room. You guys are amazing. I 00:14:26
was honored to be part of that board my first year and just was so humbled and honored just to feel the energy of that workforce 00:14:33
development and it's so exciting. And Greg, what you do with our youth, I could call you all of you out. You've just done a 00:14:40
amazing job. And I I did go I think it was like 26. I don't want to say too long, but I. 00:14:47
Went to the office to help with resume building. So I just find your job. I did OK, good. 00:14:54
Store. 00:15:03
So I just don't wanna go on too long, but just thank you so much for the all that you do for the individuals in Weld County. We 00:15:07
are so proud of you and so appreciate all your work. 00:15:12
Mr. Ross, you know, I I think workforce development is awesome. You know, we go by the mantra it's it's better to give that to. 00:15:20
Why is that? 00:15:57
A large portion of our community that you're directly having an impact on. So I say thank you, great job, appreciate. 00:15:58
They also say thank you so much and working together with Lermer County. 00:16:06
I believe that that process kind of started maybe last year even and I think that's been a a tremendous product shows that we can 00:16:10
work together across counties that our workforce actually moves across counties or rather dependent on each other. 00:16:16
And they're saying that really struck me as the the help that we're giving our young folks their first entering the workforce, 00:16:23
given that great start right off the bat, taking those headshots. 00:16:28
Helping them with the interview process, getting suits and coats or whatever it is for people regardless of age I'm guessing too. 00:16:34
So I just think that is also very tremendous that we're helping our young people get into the workforce and be the kind of 00:16:42
candidate that's going to attract the job of your dreams. So thank you. 00:16:48
And and I would agree, I don't even know what else to add to all that. So I'm just going to say thank you for what you guys do. It 00:16:54
is true we're recognized throughout the state as having one of the having the best workforce development and the best working 00:17:00
workforce Development Board. It's pretty exciting to be a part of that. So thank you for what you guys do every day and with that 00:17:06

Alright now. 00:18:38
You don't have to go. You can stay for the rest of the meeting. 00:18:51
Please. 00:18:55
OK, we have one more proclamation this morning This is. 00:18:58
Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month. 00:19:02
Of September 2023, where suicide is a complex issue that can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, race, orientation, income 00:19:04
level or background. And whereas over 48,000 deaths annually or attribute to suicide or suicide rates in Colorado, ranking six 00:19:12
nationally and 66 lives lost to suicide in Weld County during 2022. And whereas being a trusted person to turn to when someone is 00:19:20
feeling isolated or hopeless is one of the most important things we can do to prevent suicide. And we're actively. 00:19:27
Challenging stigma around mental health and building skills to increase the likelihood of someone feeling safe to open up without 00:19:35
fear of shame or judgment is the first step and whereas because of the collaboration, prevention and education efforts of N Range. 00:19:42
Suicide education and support services. Imagine zero of Weld County, numerous survivors and community partners. Hope, excuse me, 00:19:49
hope exists in Weld County. 00:19:54
And whereas N Range Behavioral Health Suicide Education and Support Services Program supports those who have lost someone to 00:19:59
suicide and provides education to Weld County residents that help. 00:20:04
World Critical suicide prevention skills and whereas September is recognized as National Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month 00:20:09
and the goal of promoting awareness surrounding suicide prevention resources and support available to all in our community and 00:20:15
whereas we encourage all residents to take the time to learn how to talk about mental health research suicide prevention. 00:20:22
Resources available nationally and throughout Will County check in on the well-being of family, friends and neighbors and show 00:20:28
genuine appreciation for the people in your life by any gesture you deem appropriate. Now, therefore, be it proclaimed by the 00:20:33
Boardwalk County Commissioners that September 2023 be known as Suicide Awareness and Prevention Month and call upon the community 00:20:39
to increase awareness and understanding of behavioral health and the need for appropriate and accessible services for all 00:20:44
citizens. 00:20:49
So I'm well 5 county committee. 00:20:54
That's a mouthful. Good morning, commissioners. Thank you so much for the opportunity to come and to just pause for a moment and 00:21:03
create awareness. It is very difficult to follow. Tammy, man, what a show that was. That was incredible and that was amazing. 00:21:10
I guess what I would want to just instill upon the room today and then also on you guys is just that we are so thankful to be a 00:21:18
part of Weld County. We will continue the work to try to truly accomplish 0. 00:21:25
Suicides in Weld County N Range has a department that is Suicide Education and Support Services, but we also work alongside A 00:21:31
coalition of like minded people who are really trying to snuff out. 00:21:37
Any level of suicidal ideation in the county and that group is called Imagine Zero and they do amazing, incredible work. One piece 00:21:44
of a detail that I just want to share with you guys. I learned from some suicide survivors. 00:21:51
They shared that it's not necessarily that they want to die, it's just that they want their pain to end and that is such a 00:21:58
different lens and we can help. 00:22:03
And so everyone in this room, if you know someone who is withdrawing, or if you know someone who you think might not be OK, just 00:22:08
connect with them and then refer them to us. We will catch the balls that you throw at us. 00:22:14
Thank you for the opportunity. 00:22:20
She was gonna say anything. 00:22:22
Hello, Thank you so much for giving the time for us to talk about suicide. You know, I've done a couple of these proclamations and 00:22:26
what I do know is that it's not always comfortable to even say the word suicide in public spaces. And that's something that we 00:22:31
actually are really trying to advocate for people to be comfortable with the words. So when we're in a situation where somebody 00:22:37
does. 00:22:42
Feel that they have an opportunity to reach out. When they do talk about it, it's not going to scare us away. And that's where we 00:22:47
get to save lives. That's when we get to come together and be that trusted person that we talk about in The Proclamation. A 00:22:54
trusted person for someone to come to and share their concerns and their challenges and fears without the fear of being judged. 00:23:01
One of the things where I or situations where I see this is really applicable in our community is with our rural and our AG 00:23:09
workers. We have a beautiful. 00:23:14
Culture of standing up on our own and being self-sufficient and being very proud, Strong workers. And there's a really fine line 00:23:21
to toe there because we are strong, we are proud and we are self-sufficient and we can't do a lot of our things alone when it 00:23:28
comes to our emotional challenges. We are wired to be connected and so trying to figure out how to help our community members 00:23:35
celebrate their rugged individualism. 00:23:42
And also know that it's OK to ask for help. That's a nut that we have not cracked. 00:23:50
And we need to do it together. So we have QPR trainings, we have mental health first aid trainings, and we need the community to 00:23:56
be a part of that so we can figure that out together in discussion and save lives. That's that's my soapbox. So thank you so much 00:24:01
for the time. 00:24:06
Mr. Daves. 00:24:15
A good showbox. Thank you for for standing on it. Let me hop up on there and knock you off you in a little bit because I know it's 00:24:16
not as as as educated as you are and uncertainly not as close to the scenario I have gone closer and more passionate about. 00:24:23
Opening up and and spreading that awareness of of of the prevention of suicide about how it's not something that that has to be 00:24:32
completed, about how there are ways that we can make that to. 00:24:37
That pain go away. 00:24:42
I was taken in in another venue. We were working on a system of care for for kids, and I was honored to sit on a panel where one 00:24:44
of the ladies with the Colorado Department of Human Services Directors Association talked about her experience with her brother. 00:24:52
Ohh, unfortunately did. 00:25:01
Die by suicide? 00:25:04
About how they went through processes and steps with him. 00:25:06
In trying to identify mental health. 00:25:09
And behavioral health and systems that he could plug into. And there was a roadblock at every turn. 00:25:11
She shared her own experience then of of later 6-7 years down the road going through breast cancer and about how with a physical 00:25:17
health issue, the doors opened, insurance covered, she walked through and now she is cancer free. 00:25:23
We need to create the same kind of seamless access for mental and behavioral health that we have in in our in our physical 00:25:29
healthcare system. We need to address it as whole person Wellness and not a separate thing because we need to take care of our 00:25:35
bodies and our minds and our spirits. And so thank you for the work that you do in in that measure. 00:25:42
I'm here for you. And let me let me sit behind you on the soapbox a little bit because we need to sing that song. Thank you. 00:25:48
You for bringing that to awareness because it is really important the whole person. 00:25:55
Mr. Buck Well, I I was serving in the legislature. I just have to say, N Range Behavioral Health was always the beacon. 00:25:59
Of hope for the statewide I mean you're you're you've done such a phenomenal job and. 00:26:07
Um, serving on the as a coordinator for the coroner's office. I just. 00:26:12
I I just can't get over the number of suicides that we have in our county. So I'm here for you and any help that I can offer. I 00:26:17
hope anybody out there that millions that are listening that if they have any issues that they can. 00:26:25
Reach out and and and call me and and and, but I just can't thank you enough for all your all that you're doing for our citizens. 00:26:33
Thank you very much. 00:26:37
Most of us. 00:26:42
Thank you. First and foremost, I think suicides touched everybody's lives in in some degree. I remember, I remember losing one of 00:26:44
my best friends he 26 years ago and your your life changes after that and you see the impact on families, loved ones around them, 00:26:52
those closest to them and even those on the periphery. How how those events impact them and make them. 00:27:00
Contemplate things, contemplate what they're going through and the services that you guys provide are are amazing, right? You you 00:27:09
truly help. 00:27:13
Individuals get that care thing right, have the ear that they need to share with, right? And so I say. 00:27:17
Thank you very much on that, Randy. We lose too many youth, too many veterans. 00:27:26
Every day to this tragic. 00:27:31
I'll call it a disease, but. 00:27:34
I appreciate the work you guys do to to help save lives, so thank you. 00:27:37
Mr. Savage. 00:27:41
And one of the things that has struck me about today is. 00:27:44
You'd mentioned things that we can do. 00:27:47
And I'll just read the last line again of this proclamation. Whereas we encourage all residents to take the time to learn to talk 00:27:50
about mental health. 00:27:54
Research suicide prevention resources available nationally and throughout Weld County. 00:27:57
Check in. 00:28:02
On the well-being of friends, family and neighbors. 00:28:04
All right. 00:28:08
And ensure genuine appreciation for the people in your life. 00:28:09
And I think if we do that, it pierces through the pain. 00:28:12
Do I matter? 00:28:17
Which is probably one of the number one questions, right? 00:28:19
Does anything I do matter? Do I matter? 00:28:22
When you reach out to somebody, you're affirming that they do. 00:28:24
And sometimes that encourages people to reach out. 00:28:28
And get the help that they need. So we have a very important role in this in the community. 00:28:31
And for our neighbors, those who live around us, we're charged to take care of our neighbors as ourselves. So. 00:28:35
Just thank you very much for. 00:28:41
Doing what you do, and I'm glad to bring this proclamation forward with the rest of the commissioners. 00:28:43
Yeah, and and I I agree with everything that's been said and I wanna say thank you as well. And I agree with Commissioner Ross. I 00:28:48
think, I think probably everybody has been touched by by suicide at some point. I've experienced it a couple of times with my best 00:28:53
friends, Dad, when we were just out of high school. 00:28:58
And with a very good friend of mine. And so it's one of those things that you know it it. 00:29:03
Impact you forever maybe it is. It just does It's one of those things and and I don't think that you ever understand or ever do 00:29:09
understand you know why It just kind of comes out of nowhere and that's what makes it hard to prevent because you don't see it 00:29:15
coming. But we continue to do whatever we can to to try and prevent and and and I really do appreciate what you guys are doing 00:29:21
because I know for a fact you're saving people's lives. So thank you what for what you guys do every day. 00:29:27
And with that, we'll go ahead and take a picture. 00:29:34
Yeah, let's go. 00:29:39
Are you? 00:29:51
Nice to see you. OK. 00:29:52
Good. 00:29:54
Yes, great. Thank you. 00:29:55

For this particular bill, we did receive 2 responses and staff will bring back a recommendation to the board on September 20th. 00:33:15
OK, questions. 00:33:22
Explain includes bids. Move on to new business #1. Consider petition for abatement or refunded taxes for account number P 1414999. 00:33:24
Thank you, caller. 00:33:29
Identical equipment instead of an individual cost. So for example, instead of listing that 7 shares each cost approximately $800, 00:34:06
they're listed that the original cost was approximately $5900. So when they're multiply that $6000 by 7 shares, you'll end up with 00:34:12
approximately $42,000 for those chairs. My office reviewed this, but also didn't catch the mistake, so the same methodology 00:34:18
continued for the entire listing, which exponentially increased the value of the of the items of equipment, there were greater 00:34:24
than one single piece of equipment. 00:34:30
So Bank of Colorado contact with us when they received a much larger tax bill than expected. As a result, we have corrected the 00:34:37
calculation we are recommending for tax year 2022. You approve the petition for abatement and change the value from $1,552,599 to 00:34:47
$275,413.00. So it alters the tax from $43,699.91 to $7751.94 and results in a tax abatement of 35,000. 00:34:57
$947.97 I can see why they questioned it differently. Absolutely. I'm glad they got it. 00:35:07
Just want to know what a $42,000 chair feels like? Ohh, you might have to go to the legislature. 00:35:16
They would move we approve the petition for abatement or refund the taxes for account number P 1414999 for Bank of Colorado using 00:35:26
the figure stated by the assessor. 00:35:32

I guess you've got missed it. I've got, I've got adjourned. 00:47:40
I got sidetracked, sorry. 00:47:44
For the record, my name is Steve Katz and I'm in Greeley. 00:47:50
And I just want to make a comment about. 00:47:54
One thing is. 00:47:58
You had the mental health. 00:48:00
Suicide Awareness I few years back had a a good friend commit suicide. I want at least on this planet, I would think we commit 00:48:02
suicide. 00:48:07
Even his family didn't know. He couldn't sense it which, But anyway, I have an idea of what people feel. 00:48:13
That's not what's gonna talk about. I just wanted to share that. 00:48:22
Um, we talked about the last meeting I was. 00:48:26
I'm not. I was at my friend was at he saying he was saying something about ostream 59. Don't have a roundabout. 00:48:31
And what I understand from him. 00:48:41
You guys want wider lanes in the city like mural lanes. Well, I don't think we should have a roundabout there. But if you go into, 00:48:44
I think it should be wider than narrower because of your first of all, your big truck summarize and all that other out there, 00:48:53
number one. Number two, you got emergency vehicles and especially the fire trucks and things like that. 00:49:02
It just doesn't make sense having one, but if you do have one and they need to be wider. 00:49:13
And not narrow #2 is. 00:49:18
Understanding the moves and also. 00:49:23
And there is there is a nursing home that's had a cases to where I understand 2 cases of coronavirus. 00:49:25
And I understand that's starting to spread. 00:49:34
I just wanna know you're staying on it. Hopefully it doesn't get as far as. 00:49:38
We're getting 2020. I just wanna know. 00:49:42
You guys, this idea of what you're going to, you know, like keep things open or close or what? 00:49:46
I'm happy to answer. Sure, go right ahead. I personally and I can't speak for the rest of my board, but as we did in 2020, Steve, 00:49:57
I don't see well County acting to close any businesses, right we're going to allow people to freedoms. 00:50:03
To make their own choices, what they feel is in their best interest, what are they, however they want to protect their own health 00:50:09
or or not protect their health or deem what they see fit to do so whether that's wearing a mask or not wearing a mask, closing a 00:50:15
business, not closing a business. That is their personal choice and we are not going to intervene on that. Steve, thank you and I 00:50:20
would agree. As we said in 2020, it's a personal responsibility. 00:50:26
You do what's in the best interest of yourself, your family, your employees, whatever. But well, counties not gonna mandate 00:50:32
anything. 00:50:35
OK, then the third one is and one goes to Commissioner James. When is the next? Where, I mean where is the next MPO meeting is 00:50:38
tomorrow night at the Windsor Public Works building? 00:50:45
Answer OK. Thank you. Any other public comment? 00:50:52
OK. Seeing none, we are adjourned at 947. We'll be back at 10:00 for Wendy's. Thanks, everybody. 00:50:57
