- Resolution No. 2022-063, reappointing Ryan Carufel as Veterans Service Officer for a four-year term effective June 3, 2022.

General Administration

Approval of the following actions:

- April 26, 2022, and May 3, 2022, County Board meeting minutes.

- Resolution No. 2022-066, approving LWLP purchase of a conservation easement on Belwin Conservancy/Blasko property on Valley Creek in Afton.

- Deputy County Administrator Jan Lucke provided a federal legislative update. Congressmembers have posted their lists of projects recommended to various appropriations committees for community project funding. A project the county submitted was included on U.S. Rep. Betty McCollum’s list and provides $1.6 million to purchase 20 Ford Interceptor hybrid squad cars and two river patrol boats. The vehicles would be used to patrol both local roadways and the interstate system, and the boats would be used to patrol the St. Croix and Mississippi rivers. Ms. Lucke reported that another project included within the borders of Washington County is $7.8 million for the City of Cottage Grove’s 80th Street Transportation and Infrastructure project. It was forwarded by U.S. Sen. Angie Craig’s office.

- Margaret Vesel, Government Relations Director at Larkin Hoffman, provided a state legislative update. The 2022 Legislative Session ended at midnight May 22, 2022. This year was the second year of the biennium, and while nothing technically needed to be passed, there was a significant budget surplus that grew throughout the legislative session of more than $7 billion that has gone unspent after adjournment. The Legislature did pass legislation on reinsurance/health care premiums, unemployment trust fund repayment, and front-line worker pay. Time ran out for bills on public safety, education, transportation, and the bonding bill. There was good news for the Land and Water Legacy Program, which included  $4.2 million appropriation for Washington County habitat and protection restoration partnership. If the Legislature returns to a special session, Ms. Vesel is optimistic that counties will benefit in receiving funding for SCORE, Community Corrections, license vehicle service fees, and County Program Aid.

- Board correspondence was received and placed on file.
