Mr. Virnig addressed the Board.
To the Honorable Members of the Board of Supervisors of the County of Jefferson:
We have audited the financial statements of the County of Jefferson as of December 31, 1998, and for the year then ended. These general purpose financial statements and the combining financial statements are the responsibility of management of the County of Jefferson. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards and the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the Comptroller General of the United States. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the general purpose financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the general purpose financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and the significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the general purpose financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the County of Jefferson as of December 31, 1998, and the results of its operations and the cash flows of its proprietary fund types for the year then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles.
Our audit was conducted for the purpose for forming an opinion on the general purpose financial statements taken as a whole. The combining financial statements are presented for purposes of additional analysis of the general purpose financial statements rather than to present the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the individual funds. The combining financial statements have been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audit of the general purpose financial statements and, in our opinion, are fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the general purpose financial statements taken as a whole.
In accordance with Government Auditing Standards, we have also issued a letter dated May 20, 1999, on our consideration of the County of Jefferson's internal control over financial reporting and on our tests of its compliance with certain provisions of laws, regulations, contracts and grants.

(Reporter's Note: Because of the length of the financial statements, they have not been reprinted in the minutes, but are on file in the County Clerk's Office and available for public inspection and examination during regular Courthouse hours.)
Mr. Buchanan moved that the report be accepted, printed in the minutes and placed on file. Seconded and carried.
District Attorney David J. Wambach presented the annual report for his office.
OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY
1998 ANNUAL REPORT
The Annual Report is designed to provide a concise overview of the operations of the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. Within this report you will find the personnel structure, salient case statistics and some items of personal interest.
District Attorney David Wambach is supported by five assistants who constitute the State equivalent of 4.3 full time employees. The Assistant District Attorneys are Michael Schaefer, H. Elizabeth Kennebeck, Tris Baker and Susan Sommer. In 1998 a new half-time position was funded by grant money provided by the Federal Violence Against Women Act (VAWA). Attorney Wade Newell, a former Public Service Special Prosecutor here, was hired to fill the position.
Laura Rohland and Jennifer Stahr continue as Victim-Witness Coordinator and First Offender Program Director respectively. Other continuing personnel include Rhonda Rohloff, Office Manager; Carla Robinson, Paralegal; Jean Camacho, Kathy Hembrook and Deb (Stone) Hacht as Legal Secretaries. New to the office in 1998 are Legal Secretary Karen Schmidt and Receptionist Judy Lins.

III. NEWS AND DEVELOPMENTS
The District Attorney's Office was busy during 1998 trying 25 jury trials, including the first-degree intentional homicide trial of Dan Brown. Dan Brown was convicted by a Jefferson County jury and upon a recommendation of District Attorney Wambach and order of the court, sentenced to life imprisonment without the eligibility for parole.
A Crimes Against Women Unit (CAW) was created in the District Attorney's Office as a result of a VAWA grant written by and awarded to the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. The CAW Unit brings Federal tax dollars back into Jefferson County to provide funding for this critical work. The Federal funds also help - on an interim basis - to stretch the prosecutorial resources of the District Attorney's Office.
Mr. Buchanan moved that the report be accepted, placed on file, and printed in the minutes. Seconded and carried.
Mrs. Frances McGinley Anderson, Administrator of Countryside Home, presented the annual report for the Home for 1998.
The resident census for 1998 averaged 217.6 per day, compared to 233.3 per day in 1997. Based on the 238 beds as the maximum available after permanently eliminating 15 beds, the occupancy was 91.4%.
In January 1998, Countryside Home contracted with the consulting firm of Ejj Olson and Associates of Milwaukee to do an analysis of existing and prospective programs and facilities which serve older adults, developmentally disabled people and other long term care populations. Ejj worked closely with the architectural firm of Flad and Associates of Madison to develop a strategic plan which recommends the enhancement of existing programs by creating designated units for: Alzheimer's disease and other dementia, gero-psychiatry services, enhancing developmentally disabled programming, hospice services, short-term care and long term skilled care.
The final report was completed by the consultants in August and presented to the County Board in September. It included recommendations for new construction for 80 beds, deactivation of the outdated Building 2 (64 beds), renovation of the west and east buildings to create smaller, specialized resident units and construction of an addition which would include an entrance area, administrative offices and a multi-purpose chapel. The total estimated cost of all the improvements suggested in the plan is $10,213,116.
The current phase of the study is examining the costs/benefits of various program options which were outlined in the strategic plan report and include skilled nursing, assisted residential living, acute psychiatric hospital services and group home beds. The costs/benefits of the plan for Goodwill Industries to own and operate a 20 unit apartment building for low-income elderly with special needs will also be analyzed. The firm of Wipfli Ullrich Bertelson, in partnership with Ejj Olson was hired to complete this portion of the study.
The 1999 budget for Countryside Home includes $824,600 for the purpose of beginning the implementation of this strategic plan. The architectural and engineering design process will begin when the current phase of the study is completed.
Additional revenue was obtained for the sixth year from the Intergovernmental Transfer Program. The 1998/1999 award is estimated to be $1,267,945. The final amount for 1997/1998 was $1,499,030.
Significant changes were made in accounting practices during the process of developing the 1999 budget as follows: implementation of a new policy on non-lapsing funds which limits the fund balance available to be applied to a subsequent years' budget, eliminating a budget line item for capital improvements and equipment while retaining the funding of depreciation of fixed assets, and including an estimate for the Intergovernmental Transfer Program non-operating revenue.
In July 1997, the County Board authorized a quit claim deed to Goodwill Industries of Southeastern Wisconsin for approximately 3 acres located near Countryside Home for the purpose of building a 20-unit apartment building which was to be HUD-subsidized. The grant was not approved because the site had some contamination and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources required more thorough investigation. The site was cleaned up in 1998 and the DNR is expected to approve the request for closure. Goodwill intends to resubmit the HUD application in May 1999.
The key areas of planned activity in 1999 are:
1. Participate actively in the strategic plan process and begin implementation as approved;
2. Implement changes in systems to coincide with revised Medicare reimbursement. Nursing staff reassignments were made in 1998 to better meet the need for increased clinical assessments.

Mr. Buchanan read the following Budget Committee Report:
LAC DU FLAMBEAU DEVELOPMENT
VILLAGE OF JOHNSON CREEK
On June 17, 1999, County representatives were informed by representatives of the Village of Johnson Creek and the Lac du Flambeau Tribe about the possible development of a convention center in Johnson Creek which would include a casino. The tribal representatives advised that the Tribe was interested in constructing a 60,000 square foot casino with 2000 slot machines and 40 gaming tables in the Village of Johnson Creek, together with a live entertainment center, restaurants, 300-room hotel and covered parking for up to 2000 autos on the site. The initial proposal was to pay the Village of Johnson Creek and Jefferson County each the sum of $1.5 million per year annually for a term of 10 years, with that amount changing to $2,000,000 each annually to the Village and County thereafter for an additional 10 years. (As of 1998, 17 casinos in the State of Wisconsin had approximately 8,800 slot machines and 350 blackjack tables. The Milwaukee casino has been authorized to expand since that time from 200 to 1000 slot machines and 25 blackjack tables.)
The Tribe expressed that time was of the essence in that its new gaming compact with the State of Wisconsin would become effective July 1, 1999. The Village of Belgium in Ozaukee County has also been approached concerning a similar development by the Tribe.
The casino itself must be on lands held in trust by the U.S. Government for the benefit of the Indian Tribe. Approval of the Governor is required for gambling on lands held in trust. Land in trust is subject to concurrent jurisdiction between the Tribe and local officials for criminal law violations. Otherwise, the land held in trust is generally exempt from local ordinances such as zoning and building codes, state laws including environmental regulation, and property taxes. The Tribe proposes to place 10-15 acres in trust, and purchase additional lands for development of the hotel/convention complex which would be subject to property taxes and local and state regulation. All other things being equal, $50,000,000 worth of taxable development would reduce the County tax levy approximately $.06 per thousand. One and one half million dollars in additional revenue would reduce the tax levy approximately $.42 per thousand, yielding a County tax reduction of approximately $50 on a property with an equalized value of $100,000. It is important to note that potential reduction does not take into consideration any increased costs relative to the development, so any actual reduction in the levy rate would be dependent upon the amount of additional expenses incurred by the County, which amount has not been determined at this time. An example of potential cost items include additional traffic control and policing. It costs approximately $400,000 per year to staff one squad car around the clock each day. Possible additional costs through Human Services Department are being explored. A similar proposal by this tribe in Waukesha County offered $3,000,000 each to the affected town and county.
Following initial contact, the Chair referred this matter to the Budget Committee as the County Board, should it desire to approve the proposal, may well need to do so before other interested municipalities and counties. The Tribe indicates it is working under certain time constraints and wishes a prompt response if it can obtain one. The Budget Committee, on June 22, reviewed the terms proposed by the tribe and prepared a response concerning some of the issues. On July 1, the Village Board of the Village of Johnson Creek approved the proposed development. In an effort to proceed expeditiously, given the existence of competing parties, the Budget Committee held a public hearing on July 6, 1999 which was attended by approximately 450 people. Four hundred twelve people registered their opinions for approval, against approval or as undecided. Forty-eight persons from the Village of Johnson Creek indicated they favored approval, while 16 persons from the Village were against approval. Fourteen residents from the surrounding Town of Farmington were in favor of approval, while 48 Town residents were against approval. Of the 286 persons who were not from the Village of Johnson Creek or Town of Farmington, 64 were for approval and 216 against.
The Budget Committee then met on July 7 for the purpose of reviewing a revised proposal and potentially negotiating with the Tribe at that time. Unfortunately, the tribal representatives were not able to attend due to other commitments. The Committee reviewed the revised proposal and directed the Corporation Counsel to prepare a response for further negotiation. The Budget Committee has scheduled a meeting with tribal representatives to undertake further negotiation on July 15 at 8:30 a.m. at the Courthouse.
As this matter is subject to certain competitive pressures and time issues that normally do not apply to matters the County Board deals with, and the issue is likely to be strongly favored by some and equally as strongly opposed by others, the Committee views its role as twofold. First, the Committee will attempt to develop as much information as it can regarding the pros and cons of this issue and get that information to the County Board members. Second, the Committee will continue on the path of negotiating a potential agreement so as to preserve the option of approval, given the interest of other municipalities elsewhere in such a development. Upon completion of both tasks, the Committee will present a final report and proposed agreement to the County Board without recommendation, for the Board's action.
In order to preserve the opportunity to approve the proposal while the offer is still pending, the Budget Committee has a resolution on today's agenda which, if approved, would allow the Committee to call a special meeting of the County Board. For your information, the next Ozaukee County Board meeting is August 4, 1999. The next regularly scheduled Jefferson County Board meeting is August 10, 1999. (Several studies on the impact of casino gambling, communications and news articles will be copied and available for distribution at the July 13 meeting.)

STATUS REPORT ON
COUNTRYSIDE HOME STRATEGIC PLAN AND STUDY
The Phase II Market Analysis of the Countryside Home Strategic Plan has been completed by the accounting firm of Wipfli, Ullrich, Bertelson, LLP in conjunction with Ejj Olson and Associates. A Steering Committee comprised of the Board of Trustees, County Board Chairman, County Administrator, Human Services Department representatives and Countryside Home staff have directed the activities of the consultants. The key recommendations are:
Discontinue use of Building 2, which currently has a maximum occupancy of 64.
Construct a new Administration and Entry building.
Construct a new two-story addition for 72 skilled care beds.
Renovate the East Building for the 32-bed ICF/MR living areas and workshops.
Renovate the West Building for 119 skilled care beds.
Renovate the core area for rehabilitative therapies, medical assessment services and other resident services.
Construct a 27-unit Resident Care Apartment Complex (RCAC) to provide assisted living.
Allocate space in the current Administration building as a Department of Human Services Aging and Disability Resource Center in anticipation of Family Care.
The estimated cost for new construction and renovation of the existing facility is $9,800,000. The RCAC facility would cost approximately $2,000,000.
A phased approach is recommended. The new construction of 72 skilled care beds and the Administration/Entry and Chapel would cost approximately $5,853,000. The second phase would be the renovation of East and West Buildings and the Main Building at an estimated cost of $3,900,116. The first two phases would be designed as one project. The amount budgeted in 1999 for project design should be sufficient for this. The estimated $9,000,000 needed for construction costs remains to be funded.
The third phase of the project would need to be reevaluated following completion of the first two phases. It is anticipated that the third phase would not be considered for another two to three years.

Mr. Fiske read Resolution No. 99-37.
WHEREAS, county jails throughout Wisconsin are housing inmates at an unprecedented rate; and
WHEREAS, this continual increase in jail populations is forcing counties to build and staff new facilities at great cost to the property taxpayer; and
WHEREAS, a significant part of the increase in jail populations is directly attributable to the policies adopted by the Wisconsin Legislature; and
WHEREAS, such policies have tended to lengthen the periods of incarceration; and
WHEREAS, the adoption of these new and tougher penalties requiring incarceration in county jails has not provided for any state funding to support the implementation of said policies; and
WHEREAS, said failure by the Governor and Legislature to provide adequate funding to support their policies results in yet another unfunded mandate foisted upon the property taxpayer,
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED the Jefferson County Board of Supervisors, duly assembled this 13th day of July, 1999, does hereby ask the Governor and Legislature to provide sufficient funds to support all state legislation which results in the use of a county jail; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED these funds shall cover both the capital costs associated with increased use of county jails and the staffing costs incurred by a jail facility in order to safely support said jail population; and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED the County Clerk be directed to send a copy of this resolution to the Governor, the Secretary of the Department of Administration, the Secretary of the Department of Corrections and the Jefferson County legislative delegation.
