      WHEREAS the disabilities of the patrons prohibit many of them from visiting

      WHEREAS some patrons are brought to the library by family members to pick

            creates one full-time Clerk I position in order to continue to
            provide Saturday service in the Library for the Blind and Physically
            Handicapped. In addition, the full-time position will provide more
            stability to the staff, allowing the library to provide the required
            level of service to library patrons.
      2.    The additional cost of this position is $8,928 annually.
      3.    Starting in Fiscal Year 1999 and continuing through Fiscal Year
            2001, an increase in State aid funding covers the additional cost of
            the full-time position. By Fiscal Year 2002, other efficiencies in
            operation or additional revenue will need to be found.

            attorney mediators, the balance of the fund will be used by the

            for funds forfeited through narcotic seizures, i.e., specifically
            requested by the Court and approved by the Board of Commissioners.
      4.    The fund currently has a balance of $497,323 of which a minimum of
            $65,350 is committed to cover the 1999 mediation liability to date,

BY: Finance Committee, Sue Ann Douglas, Chairperson
IN RE:    PERSONNEL DEPARTMENT - 1999-2001 LABOR AGREEMENT FOR EMPLOYEES
REPRESENTED BY THE GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES LABOR COUNCIL (CHILDREN’S VILLAGE)
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      Pursuant to Rule XII-F of this Board, the Finance Committee has reviewed
the above-referenced resolution and finds:
      1)    The County of Oakland and the Government Employees Labor Council
            (Children’s Village), have negotiated a contract and reached a
            three-year agreement for the period of January 1, 1999 through
            December 31, 2001.
      2)    The agreement includes a 3.0% salary increase for Fiscal Year 1999,
            effective September 26, 1998, and a “me too” salary adjustment with
            non-represented employees for Fiscal Year 2000 and Fiscal Year 2001.
      3)    The effect on Fiscal Year 1999 is an increase of $188,136 in
            salaries and a decrease of $(75,115) due to a reduction in the
            fringe benefit rates.
      4)    There are sufficient funds in the Fiscal Year 1999 Children’s
            Village budget to cover the increase, therefore no budget amendment
            is necessary.
      5)    The contract also increases the Personal Mileage rate from $.30 to
            $.325, which is also included in the Children’s Village budget.
      6)    The budgets for Fiscal Year 2000 and Fiscal Year 2001 will be
            adjusted by the amount of salary increase granted by the Board of
            Commissioners to non-represented employees.

* MISCELLANEOUS RESOLUTION #98321
BY: Personnel Committee, Thomas Law, Chairperson
IN RE: PERSONNEL DEPARTMENT/HUMAN RESOURCES - EXPANDING COUNTY BOUNTY TO INCLUDE
DIFFICULT TO RECRUIT PART-TIME, NON-ELIGIBLE CLASSIFICATIONS
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      WHEREAS the Board of Commissioners has approved a County Bounty program to
offer a monetary award to current County employees who refer a successful
candidate for specific, difficult to fill positions; and
      WHEREAS there are certain part-time, non-eligible positions which pose
serious staffing problems due to turnover and recruitment difficulties; and
      WHEREAS part-time, non-eligible positions are funded and would provide the
source of funds for the monetary award if they go unfilled.
      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
approves the expansion of the County Bounty program to include certain part-time,
non-eligible, difficult to fill classifications as identified by the
Personnel Department, and approves a monetary award to be paid to County
employees for this purpose.     Guidelines specific to part-time, non-eligible
referral awards will be developed and administered by the Personnel
Department/Human Resource Division, and will be similar to those guidelines
currently designated for full-time referrals with certain exceptions, including
the following: The referred part-time non-eligible candidate cannot have been
previously employed by Oakland County in any capacity, and must complete 520
hours of work within a one year period after the initial hire date in order for
the recruiter to be eligible for the award.
      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that notification of the “County Bounty” for
part-time, non-eligible candidates will be posted in a manner similar to that for
full-time candidates.
      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the award will come from non-designated fund
balances in the department where the vacancy exists, will be determined and
authorized by the Personnel Department, and will be clearly specified at the time
the award is announced. The amount will be established based on a formula not
to exceed 2% of the annualized base rate of a given classification in affect at
the time the award is announced, and not to exceed a maximum of $1,000 per hire.

IN RE: PERSONNEL DEPARTMENT/HUMAN RESOURCES - EXPANDING COUNTY BOUNTY TO INCLUDE
DIFFICULT TO RECRUIT PART-TIME, NON-ELIGIBLE CLASSIFICATIONS
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      Pursuant to Rule XII-F of this Board, the Finance Committee has reviewed
the above-referenced resolution and finds:
      1.    It is requested that a program called “County Bounty” established
            with Miscellaneous Resolution #98159 be expanded in order to assist
            the Personnel Department with recruiting persons for specific
            classifications which have been difficult to fill, resulting in
            vacancies for extended periods of time.
      2.    The “County Bounty” expanded program would offer a monetary award to
            County employees who refer a successful candidate in certain
            part-time non-eligible positions.
      3.    The Personnel Department/Human Resources Division would be
            responsible for developing and administering specific policy
            guidelines for this award program.
      4.    The award would be based on a formula not to exceed 2% of the
            annualized rate of a given classification in affect at the time the
            award is announced.
      5.    The amount to be awarded shall in no case exceed $1,000.
      6.    Funding will be derived from favorability in departmental salaries
            budgets, arising from subject vacancies, therefore no budget
            amendment is recommended at this time.

                                      555
Commissioners Minutes Continued.   December 10, 1998

      1)    The County of Oakland and the Michigan Association of Police have
            negotiated a three-year contract covering eight (8)employees for the
            period January 1, 1998 through September 30, 2000.
      2)    The contract includes a 3.5% wage increase for Fiscal Year 1998,
            effective December 20, 1997, and a 3.0% increase for Fiscal
            Year 1999, effective September 26, 1998, for all classifications
            represented by the bargaining unit.
      3)    The increase to the County for Fiscal Year 1999 is $6,831 in
            salaries, offset by a decrease in fringe benefits of $(5,206) due to
            a reduction in the fringe benefit rates.
      4)    The Medical Examiner’s budget includes the increase in salaries and
            reduction in fringe benefits for Fiscal Year 1999; therefore no
            budget amendment is necessary.
      5)    The contract also includes an increase in Night Shift Differential
            from $.40 to $.45 and Personal Mileage from $.30 to $.325.
            Sufficient funds are in the Medical Examiner’s budget for
            Fiscal Year 1999 to cover the increase; no budget amendment is
            necessary.

IN RE:    DRAIN COMMISSIONER - IMPLEMENTATION OF LABOR DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM,
MISCELLANEOUS ACCOUNTING POLICY CHANGES AND ORGANIZATIONAL CHANGES
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      Pursuant to Rule XII-F of this Board, the Finance Committee has reviewed
the above-referenced resolution and finds:
      1)    Representatives from Management and Budget, Division of Fiscal
            Services, Drain Commissioner and Personnel Department have agreed on
            recommended changes to reduce the current number of transactions to
            better utilize the new financial system.
      2)    Administrative sub-funds will be used to allow for the budgeting of
            positions and payment of operating costs.
      3)    Drain administrative sub-funds will require periodic advances from
            the Drain Revolving Fund during periods when cash balances are
            insufficient to pay outstanding bills.       Therefore, the General
            Appropriation Act be amended by adding the following as
            Section 21(h):
                  Transfers (advances) may be made as necessary from the Drain
            Revolving Fund to Drain Construction Funds and Drain Maintenance
            Funds as short term advances for costs incurred such as preliminary
            engineering fees and ongoing maintenance costs. Costs incurred by
            Drain Maintenance Funds and Drain Construction Funds will be repaid
            by the Drain Fund thru assessments.      Specific requests will be
            reviewed and approved by the Fiscal Officer.
      4)    Drains will continue to collect assessments to reimburse the Drain
            Revolving Fund for advances.
      5)    Transfers and accounting changes will have no impact on General Fund
            contingency.
      6)    Sixty-six (66) Drain Commissioner positions will be transferred from
            General Fund/General Purpose to Special Revenue designation. See
            attachment “B”.

through the Friends of the Rouge and paid for primarily with Federal grant
funds; and
      WHEREAS the Oakland County Board of Commissioners is desirous of having
such an educational plan implemented for the Clinton River.
      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
hereby requests that the Oakland County Drain Commissioner prepare a program of

licensed child care service provider through the normal competitive bid process;
and
      WHEREAS the 1999 Capital Improvement Program identifies the Day Care Center
as the sixth item of the Building Section that, at a cost of $1,600,000, will
provide a facility with a capacity of approximately 100 children, ages 5 and
under, for County employees at the former Health Care Annex located on the
Pontiac Service Center; and

requirements of the State of Michigan and be consistent with space, environment

administered by the Personnel Department; and
      WHEREAS the County Executive recommends approval of this program in order
to provide quality and affordable child care services for employees, help to
retain employees and, also, help to attract potential employees to the County in
today’s very competitive job market.
      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
authorizes the establishment of an on-site employee child care program to be
located on the County Service Center at the former Health Care Annex and
administered by the Personnel Department.
      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the $1,600,000 funding for the capital costs
of the aforementioned program be transferred from the Fringe Benefit Fund (678)

      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that once the contract for a child care service
provider is negotiated, it shall come back to the Board of Commissioners for
final approval through the Board of Commissioners' committee process.

IN RE: MANDATORY IMPRISONMENT WITHOUT PAROLE FOR SEXUALLY ASSAULTING CHILDREN
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      WHEREAS one of life’s most precious treasures, our children, are far too
frequently the innocent victims of cruelty inflicted upon them by heartless,
violent criminals; and
      WHEREAS in 1997, in order to stem the tide of convicts being released years
before serving their mandatory sentence, the State of New Jersey passed
legislation, commonly referred to as “Joan’s Law” -- named after seven year old
Joan D’Allessandro who was abducted, sexually assaulted and murdered while
delivering Girl Scout cookies. This law prohibits parole for sex offenders who
assault and kill children under the age of fourteen; and
      WHEREAS in 1998, the New Jersey State Legislature introduced Senate
Bill #783 and Assembly Bill #1740, which require that a person who is convicted
of the heinous crime of sexually assaulting a child, be sentenced to a mandatory
minimum term of imprisonment without eligibility for parole; and
      WHEREAS recognizing that the deviant behavior of pedophiles may not be
“cured”, it is in the best interest of the public safety of our children that
legislation be enacted that mandates a prison term of life without parole for the
person who causes the death of a child in the commission of a sexual assault; and
      WHEREAS eliminating the possibility of parole also relieves the families
of the innocent victims from the horror of having to relive their personal
tragedy every few years at parole hearings; and
      WHEREAS eliminating the possibility of parole acts to prevent other
families from falling victim to the convicted criminal’s repeat behavior.
      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
supports the “Joan’s Law” that was adopted in New Jersey and its provision that
molesters who murder children receive life without parole and supports the
proposed New Jersey legislation, Senate Bill #783 and Assembly Bill #1740, which
establishes mandatory minimum terms of imprisonment without parole eligibility
for sexual assaults committed against children.
      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners urges
that the Michigan State Legislature consider similar amendments to our parole
system in order to eliminate the possibility of those convicted of sexually
assaulting children of being eligible for early release and urges the Legislature
to formulate legislation which mandates a life sentence without parole for those
convicted of murdering a child during the assault.
      BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED that copies of this adopted resolution be forwarded
to all Oakland County legislators, Governor Engler, Michigan Association of
Counties, and Oakland County’s legislative agents.
      Chairperson, we move the adoption of the foregoing resolution.

BY:   Commissioner Charles Palmer, District #16; Lawrence Obrecht, District #3;
Dan Devine, Jr., District #14; Jeff Kingzett, District #7
IN RE: GAMING CASINOS IN OAKLAND COUNTY MICHIGAN
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      WHEREAS Oakland County, with its more than $35 billion SEV, has been
described as “engine which runs the economy of the State of Michigan”, and
Oakland County has exceeded National and State measurements in virtually every
category of business and community growth and vitality; and
      WHEREAS while Oakland County’s population is expected to grow over 18%
between 1998 and 2020, and it is estimated that $2.5 billion in new construction
will occur in 1997 and, 30% of all new incorporations in the State of Michigan
occur in Oakland County; the quality of life in Oakland County is still very
representative of traditional Midwestern values, which all combine to provide
Oakland County’s citizens with a standard of living which is amongst the best in
the world; and
      WHEREAS currently Windsor, Canada has two casinos and the City of Detroit
is engaged in developing three new casinos, all which will be less than 50 miles
of Oakland County; and there are a total of 21 casinos already approved or in
existence in Michigan, with efforts continuing to establish other casinos; and
      WHEREAS a common motivation of pursing the establishment of casinos has
been a demonstrated need for jobs and economic development within the
municipality, a circumstance which does not correspond with Oakland County’s
prosperous economy and booming economic outlook.
      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
requests the support of the Governor and the State Legislature in disallowing the
establishment of gaming casino within Oakland County.
      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that certified copies of this resolution be sent to
the Governor, all Michigan U.S. Congressmen, all Oakland County State
legislators, the Michigan Association of Counties, Michigan Municipal League,
Michigan Township Association, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the Secretary of the
Interior, Oakland County’s Legislative lobbyists, and all Oakland County local

MISCELLANEOUS RESOLUTION #98334
BY: Planning and Building Committee, Charles E. Palmer, Chairperson
IN RE: GRANTING THE DRAIN COMMISSIONER THE AUTHORITY TO APPLY FOR COVERAGE UNDER
THE MICHIGAN WATERSHED BASED STORM WATER GENERAL PERMIT PROGRAM FOR ALL COUNTY
DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      WHEREAS since October 1995, the Drain Commissioner’s office has been a
participant on a “task force” established by Federal District Court Judge
John Feikens to address the short and long term water quality efforts of the
communities located in the Rouge River watershed to improve the water quality of
the Rouge River; and
      WHEREAS in 1996 the Drain Commissioner’s office introduced to
Oakland County cities, villages, and townships (CVTs) located in the
Rouge Watershed, the “subwatershed approach” concept for addressing and improving
the water quality of the Rouge River; and
      WHEREAS under this approach, the regulatory agencies, Environmental
Protection Agency/Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (EPA/MDEQ), would
issue a “general storm water permit” to various subwatersheds of the
Rouge River; and
      WHEREAS in September 1997 the Federal Court indicated its concern and
impatience as to the progress towards improving the river and proposed to issue
an “Order to Show Cause” against the counties of Wayne, Oakland, and Washtenaw
and the CVTs in the Rouge Watershed, which among other things, would address why
a “formal organization” or watershed-wide authority should not be established to
address non-point source pollution problems within the Rouge Watershed; and
      WHEREAS the Federal Court has held the proposed “Order to Show Cause” in
abeyance until January 1999 while the Counties of Oakland, Wayne and Washtenaw
and CVTs located in the Rouge Watershed contemplate coverage under the Michigan’s
“general storm water permit;” and
      WHEREAS the subwatershed approach for addressing non-point pollution
contained in the general storm water permit offers a viable alternative to the
Court’s proposed watershed-wide authority and provides strong local control of
management decisions; and
      WHEREAS the Rouge River National Wet Weather Demonstration Project will
provide technical assistance and Federal grants (up to 50% of the cost) for those
communities that choose to apply for coverage now with an opportunity to
implement the most cost effective approaches to meeting pollution abatement
objectives; and
      WHEREAS the general storm water permit approach offers the County the
opportunity to establish its own priorities, propose their own schedules and
integrate storm water management practices into their ongoing operations and
would allow the County and CVTs to develop a plan of action that best meets the
needs of the watershed; and

Commissioners Minutes Continued.   December 10, 1998

      WHEREAS the Oakland County Board of Commissioners established a Storm Water

      Director of the Department of Facilities Management (or designee)

Michigan Watershed-based Storm Water General Permit program on behalf of all
County Departments.

IN RE:     EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT - ACQUISITION OF E-911 RADIO COMMUNICATION
EQUIPMENT AND UNIFICATION OF COUNTY PUBLIC SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS
To the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
Chairperson, Ladies and Gentlemen:
      WHEREAS the Oakland County Board of Commissioners, by Miscellaneous
Resolution #86245 (dated August 21, 1986), adopted the E-911 Service Plan
consistent with Public Act 32 of 1986, Emergency Telephone Services Enabling
Act; and
      WHEREAS under the County Plan, the initial installation costs ($412,271)
were absorbed by the County and the networks annual recurring costs
(approximately $600,000) are shared on a 50/50 basis with local communities; and
      WHEREAS    the   Oakland   County    E-911   system   became   operational
November 14, 1988; and

                                      611
Commissioners Minutes Continued.   December 10, 1998

      WHEREAS with the passage of a decade in time and advancement of technology,
public safety officials throughout the County have expressed a need to review the
existing E-911 system and related communication network to identify the status
of the equipment located at the various public service answering points (PSAPs),
to examine the strengths and weaknesses of the current system, and to recommend
improvements where needed; and
      WHEREAS the inability of 13 public safety agencies to effectively
communicate at the scene of the Wixom Ford Plant shooting, and the recent
similarly critical life-threatening incident involving the City of Farmington’s
Public Safety Department and the City of Farmington Hill’s Fire Department,
underscores   the   immediate   need   to   unify   County-wide   public   safety
communication; and
      WHEREAS the Board of Commissioners, by Miscellaneous Resolution #97017
dated April 10, 1997, authorized the establishment of the E-911 Communications
Task Force to study public service agency communication needs and make
appropriate recommendations for improvement; and
      WHEREAS upon recommendation of the E-911 Communications Task Force, the
Board   of   Commissioners,    by   Miscellaneous    Resolution   #97256,   dated
November 20, 1997, authorized the engagement of Plante and Moran, LLP to perform
such study because of their prior experience in assisting the County in
determining the needs relating to replacement of the County’s Court and Law
Enforcement Management Information System (CLEMIS) and in the replacement of the
County’s mobile data terminals and related infrastructure; and
      WHEREAS the study by Plante and Moran, LLP conducted between December 1997
and March 1998, including contact with all 32 PSAPs in the County, various
telephone companies and other parties of interest in the study, resulted in a
report presented at the April 17, 1998 meeting of the E-911 Communications Task
Force; and
      WHEREAS due to major interoperability deficiencies of the current patchwork
radio systems operated on 150 MHz, 420 MHz and 800 MHz frequencies by public
safety agencies throughout the County and due to the prospects for further
denigration of radio communication related to refarming of 150 MHz and 420 MHz
frequencies by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the Plante and Moran,
LLP report recommended, and the E-911 Communications Task Force concurred, that
upgrading and expansion of the County’s 800 MHz system sufficient to encompass
all public safety radios would eliminate the interoperability issues that are
present today; and
      WHEREAS the first year cost of the recommended expansion is $14.0 million,
while the annual operating costs amount to as much as $4.2 million, including
debt service on the initial capital outlay; and
      WHEREAS expansion of the system is predicated upon the allocation by the
Frequency Allocation Committee of the FCC of an additional fourteen (14) channels
in the 800 MHz frequency range to accommodate an additional 1400 radios; and
      WHEREAS the City of Detroit Water and Sewer Department has petitioned the
Frequency Allocation Committee (FAC) for all available 821 MHz channels in the
region; such request may be considered at the January, 1999 FAC meeting; and
      WHEREAS Public Act 29 of 1994 enables the Board of Commissioners to
authorize a telephone surcharge up to four (4%) percent for emergency
telephone operations; and
      WHEREAS over 49 Michigan counties have authorized enactment of a surcharge
for E-911 enhancement and operating purposes, and the charge proposed herein
would amount to only $.16 per phone line per month, with Centrex line counting,
generally, as only one line.
      NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Oakland County Board of Commissioners
authorizes the amendment of the Fiscal Year 1999 and 2000 capital improvement
budgets in the amount of $14.0 million and $2.9 million, respectively, to
appropriate funds, in accordance with the attached materials, up to approximately
$18.1 million initially and up to $4.2 million annually, sufficient to address
the subject interoperability requirements of all public safety agencies in
Oakland County.

Commissioners Minutes Continued.   December 10, 1998

      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that in the event the funds are not appropriated in
accordance with the immediately preceding paragraph, than and solely in that
event the Oakland County Board of Commissioners authorizes the various telephone
companies throughout the County, in the absence of presently feasible alternative
means of financing the system, to levy a four (4%) percent surcharge for
emergency telephone operations contingent upon approval of the Frequency
Allocation Committee of the Federal Communications Commission for the allocation
of fourteen (14) 800 MHz channels, sufficient to address the interoperability
requirements of all public safety agencies in Oakland County.
      Chairperson, I move adoption of the foregoing resolution.
