Kass Resigns County Finance Director Post

Issue Date: June 21, 2018

Marinette County now faces vacancies in two of it's highest level department head positions. Last month Rick Rickaby resigned his position as Highway Commissioner to accept a job in the private sector, and at the Administrative Committee meeting on Thursday, June 14, Finance Director Pat Kass made a surprise announcement that he is retiring and his last day on the job would be Friday, June 22. Both vacancies are likely to come up for discussion at the County Board meeting on Tuesday, June 26, but neither is on the agenda for action.

County Board will have a number of other significant issues to deal with, however, including purchase of the Crossroads Juvenile Group Home facility on Schacht Road in the Town of Peshtigo from the Group Home Association at a price of $220,000. This was the assessed value placed on the property.

The Group Home Association will continue to operate Anthony House and Taylor House, facilities that serve an older segment of the population.

Last month, after being informed by the Group Home Association that they were no longer willing or able to operate the juvenile facility, County Board approved a contract with Advocates for Healthy Transitional Living to provide foster care services at the Crossroads Juvenile group home, starting as soon as possible and running through December 31 of this year, at a cost not to exceed $95,000.

Marinette County loaned the Group Home Association the money they needed to build Crossroads in the first place, and also financed construction of the other two facilities. Of the $220,000 being offered to the Group Home Association for Crossroads, $200,000 will be applied to pay on current Group Home Association debt, and $20,000 cash will be paid to them from Contingency, and an underlying agreement between the county and the Association.

Also on the agenda for County Board on June 26 are 2.5 percent raises for county employees, fund transfers, personnel changes, and department head reports by Health and Human Services Director Robin Elsner, Library Director Jennifer Thiele, and Erik Burmeister in his regular full time role as head of Emergency Management.

Other business at the County Board meeting will include:

*Appointment of Supervisor Clancy Whiting to the Lake Michigan Area Land & Water Conservation Association Board of Directors;

* Ordinance amendments to all ow the Health and Human Services committee to meet on Wednesdays at the Health and Human Services Building as recommended by that committee;

*Amendments to the County Forest 15-year Comprehensive Land Use Plan as recommended by the Infrastructure Committee;

*Approve entering into an agreement with Wheeler Lumber, LLC of Eden Prairie MN for repair of Ernst Road Bridge, Town of Niagara for $24,119.00, plus $3,265.63 delivery cost, total $27,394.63, pending Corporation Counsel's approval;

*Approve agreement for appraisal and acquisition services related to to the county G reconstruction, at a cost that will not be known until Tuesday morning; and also approve relocation of parts of the road in about 3.106 miles of the construction area;

*Approve amendments, Appendix C & D, to UW, River Cities Pool and Marinette County Memorandum of Understanding;

*Approve County Investment Policy per annual review requirement. this was explained by Kass at the Administrative Committee meeting on June 14;

*Approve transfer of $455,073.86 from General Fund Unassigned Fund Balance to the Health and Human Service Fund to cover that department's December 31, 2017 fund deficit;

*Approve Carlson Dettman compensation plan 2.5% wage increase for 2019, plus one step for those employees below step 6, and an annual cost of living for county psychiatrist;

*Approve some changes in the Parks Caretakers positions that will allow two grades of caretakers, one which requires a commercial driver's license and one which does not;

*Approve creation of a Dementia Care Specialist position to be located at the HHSD ADRC, effective immediately, and

*Approve an agreement with Motorola Solutions, Inc. for new Dispatch consoles for the 911 emergency communications department, at a cost of $452,451.
