Motion carried unanimously. Melanie Heitkamp, Youthworks Executive Director, informed the board that there will no longer be a Certified Shelter in Grand Forks County because their current space does not meet the qualifications for certification as required by the ND Department of Human Services and they have not been able to find a space that would qualify for certification. They will continue to try to find a space. Debbie Swanson, Public Health Director, gave a COVID-19 update. Kari Goelz, Emergency Management Director, addressed the board. Moved by Rost, seconded by Knauf, to approve the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program Subgrant Agreement for FEMA-DR-4553-ND with the Chair’s signature. Grand Forks County is not fiscally responsible for this project. Motion carried unanimously. Robin Spain, Juvenile Detention Administrator, addressed the board. Moved by Pic, seconded by Rost, to promote a Juvenile Detention Officer to a Lieutenant to supervise the Attendant Care Program, effective August 1, 2022. This will have no impact on the Juvenile Detention budget since we will no longer be paying Youthworks for the Attendant Care Program, we will be eligible for reimbursements from the State, and we could receive payments from out-of-county placements. Motion carried unanimously. Tracy LeDuc,CVIC Chief Financial Officer, Sue Shirek, Northlands Rescue Mission Executive Director and Murray Hennessy, Northlands Rescue Mission, addressed the board regarding their requests for American Rescue Plan Act funds. The board heard their requests and will decide on funding at a future meeting. Lesley Lubenow, NDSU Extension East District Director, addressed the board.
