III. PUBLIC COMMENT – (Limited to 3 minutes each)



MOTION: It was moved by Don Lombardi and seconded by Don Wick to approve the record of proceedings of the work session for the board of directors dated November 20, 2017.



A. Financial and Budget Update – (CRS) Community Resource of Colorado Ms. Angie Kelly

1. Resolution to Amend 2017 Budget

  • Angie Kelly-presented the 5.7 that has been spent year to date. We do still have some expenses coming in and we anticipate being over the 5.9 million by the end of the year. The resolution amends to 6.5 million from the 5.9 million.
  • We may be coming back to JCECA with an ask to cover the additional amendment.

2. Budget Hearing on 2017 Budget Amendment

  • Jon Greer opened the public hearing on the amendment to the 2017 budget. No comments. Public hearing was closed.

MOTION: It was moved by Jeff Shrader and seconded by Don Lombardi to approve amendment of the 2017 budget as stated in Resolution 2017-01. The  motion was voted upon and carried.

3. Resolution to Adopt 2018 Budget, Appropriate Funds, Set Mill Levies

  • The budget’s final numbers remains the same as last board meeting. The only change was matching the resolution to what the budget actually reads. The IGA and the budget matched the member agency contribution percentages.
  • Final page of the budget is a reserve fund. This will be budgeted separately to match the resolution. It shows the transfer in of the $745,732 and ensures that it is set aside for capital expenses.
  • Second to last page separates out the general operating contingency of the 1 million. It is treated as a capital reserve fund transfer.
  • We will not account for left over funds to be given to member agencies in this resolution. That is something that will be addressed in the financial policy when it comes.

4. Budget Hearing on Proposed 2018 Budget

  • Jon Greer opened a public hearing for the adoption of the 2018 budget. No comments. Public hearing was closed.

MOTION: It was moved by Jeff Shrader and seconded by Don Lombardi to approve the 2018 budget as stated in Resolution 2017-02. The motion was voted upon and carried.

B. Executive Director Update – Executive Director Jeff Streeter

  • Considering Don Wick’s retirement, the alternate board member was identified as Deputy Link Straight.

2. Warren Tech

  • Don Wick and Jeff Streeter met with Warren Tech to establish a curriculum with them in a dispatch role; potentially leading them to a career in dispatch. They have agreed to work closely with Jeffcom to establish a curriculum.
  • Warren Tech has a need for equipment (consoles) to make this program sustainable. They said 12 consoles would be a help to them. We are hoping to have something stood up in Fall 2018. There is a way for the agencies to take their unused equipment and make a difference at Warren Tech. Jeff Streeter will meet with Warren Tech in the near future and come back to the board with a plan on how to accomplish this.

C. Legal Update – Mrs. Kathryn Winn

  1. Service User Agreement- Approval of form
  • The service user agreement has been sent to the agencies. A formal board approval for Jeff to sign for these SUAs is needed.

MOTION: It was moved by Jeff Shrader and seconded by Dan brennan to approve the form of the service user agreement and approve Jeff Streeter’s authority to sign for these. The motion was voted upon and approved.

2. Member Service Agreement-Review/Discussion/Possible Action

  • We changed the name to MSA to make it easier to understand which agreement we are talking about.
  • The MSA will include standard services that will be provided to all 8 agencies and then exhibits which outline services that will be provided to the individual who is signing the agreement. We pulled out member specific agreements, service levels, and target service levels and presented them as Exhibits. The MSAs went to the legal counsels for each agencies.
  • We would like to have a standard agreement and then just have the Exhibits be different for each agency. The board is in agreement that this is a good format and route to go.

3. Dispatcher Transition License Agreements with Jeffco SO and Golden- Review and Approval

  • The board has already approved these agreements for the agencies coming over January 1st. Golden and Jeffco decided they wanted to come over as well so those agreements were created. We are just looking for board approval Golden.

Jeffco will also provide cell phones for supervisors. In section 5E they requested a specific stacking plan. Added in was particular records retention and custodian issues that were discusses previously. Jeff Streeter is ok with this new agreement.

MOTION: It was moved by Don Wick and seconded by Don Lombardi to approve the Dispatcher Transition License Agreement for Jeffco. The motion was voted upon and approved.

4. Update on Records Management Meeting with agency attorneys

  • Jeffcom will be the records (dispatch logs) custodian for all agencies cutting over January 1st. The exception to that is Jeffco. Jeffco, Lakewood and Arvada offices will handle those requests until they cut over.
  • Jeffco requested that with respect to their legacy recordings that Jeffcom would handle those requests. They will have someone come over to Jeffcom to take care of this.
