Item Description: Establish a public hearing on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 1:30 p.m. during the County Administration Committee for the purpose of issuing debt under the county s 2018-2022 Capital Improvement Program

Tagged Passions:hearing, capital spending, Capital Spending, and program

Resolution: BE IT RESOLVED, pursuant to Minnesota Statutes, Section 373.40, subdivision 2(b), the County Administration Committee shall conduct a public hearing on Tuesday, March 20, 2018, at 1:30 p.m., or as soon as therefore practicable, on the proposed issuance of up to 200,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of general obligation debt of the county for the purpose of financing new capital improvements that are included in the county s 2018-2022 Capital Improvement Program. Staff is authorized to cause notice of the hearing, substantially in the form presented to this board, at least once, not less than 14 days nor more than 28 days prior to the hearing, in the official newspaper of the county.

Background: Minnesota Statutes, Section 373.40, requires the county to conduct a public hearing prior to issuing debt under this particular capital improvement bonding authority. It is anticipated that the county could issue one or more series of general obligation bonds or notes during the next 12-month period based upon this public hearing. Following this hearing, staff will prepare a separate Board Action Request asking for authority to issue one or more specific series. Final decisions on sizing, structure and timing of the issuance of any debt will depend upon the progress and cash flow requirements of capital projects to be financed. Staff will work with PFM Financial Advisors, LLC, the county s contracted municipal advisor, to determine the timing and structure of debt issuance.

Tagged Passions:budget, hearing, capital spending, services, contract, Capital Spending, risk, youth, subdivision, finance, bond, grant, funding, and program

Resolution: BE IT RESOLVED, that a supplemental appropriation in the amount of 500,000 to the approved 2018 Human Services and Public Health Department budget, for the approved receivable Agreement A178253 with the Pohlad Family Foundation, be approved.

Background: Receivable Agreement A178253 was approved by the Board through Resolution 17-0500 on December 12, 2017. However, the Board Action Request did not include a supplemental appropriation as part of this action. Since this was a new grant awarded to Hennepin County by the Pohlad Family Foundation, a supplemental appropriation is needed for the 2018 Human Services and Public Health Department budget. The board action request for Resolution 17-0500 is attached to provide additional background information.

Tagged Passions:grant, funding, and program

Background: Hennepin County has been awarded a grant from the Pohlad Family Foundation for the provision of prevention services in the following conditions: 1) prior to eviction filing, 2) when seeking prevention services and 3) when presenting for shelter, for families (ages 16+) and unaccompanied youth (ages 16-24) at-risk of or currently experiencing homelessness in Hennepin County.

This is a new grant from the Pohlad Family Foundation. The Pohlad Family Foundation has been engaging in a strategic planning process over the course of the past year to identify priorities and focus for funding opportunities available through the Foundation in the future. The Foundation released their funding priorities in the Fall of 2017. Their funding priorities will be focused on unaccompanied youth and families that are at-risk of and currently experiencing homelessness.

Hennepin County staff from the Office of Housing Stability and the Office to End Homelessness began having conversations with employees of the Pohlad Family Foundation in September 2017. These were informal conversations to discuss community needs, specific to unaccompanied youth and families at-risk of and experiencing homelessness in Hennepin County. The Foundation announced in late October 2017 their plan to grant Hennepin County funds in the amount of 500,000 and for Hennepin County to select and convey these funds to community providers serving unaccompanied minors and/or families for the purposes of the grant. This grant will be included in HSPHD s 2018 budget.

Hennepin County has not selected specific contracted providers, at this time, to whom these grant funds will be awarded, given the very quick announcement of and awarding of this grant. Staff from HSPHD s Housing and Homeless Initiatives, the Office of Housing Stability and the Office to End Homelessness are convening to further discuss the disbursement of these funds and related outcomes and evaluation that will be associated with the funds. These funds may be used to increase current contracts that Hennepin County currently has with select providers in our community currently doing the same or similar work. In this case, Hennepin County staff would work to amend these contracts. The goal is to confirm by 12/15/17 with whom the County will contract for these funds and for what specific services.
