RESOLUTION NO. 07-05-01

COURT ITV USAGE

WHEREAS, it is the Lake of the Woods County Board’s belief that the Criminal Rules Committee proposed ITV rules are overly restrictive and would cause delay in court appearances and increased transportation and staff costs, which monies could be better spent improving underlying socioeconomic problems thereby reducing the need for jail cells in the future; and

WHEREAS, the Lake of the Woods County Board believes that an increased use of ITV procedures not only would be cost-effective, but would treat individuals charged with crimes in a fair and timely manner, regardless of individuals’ socioeconomic status; and

WHEREAS, the Lake of the Woods County Board believes that ITV should be used for various court appearances without restricting the physical location of the parties and discretion left with the District Courts and parties for the use of ITV in other court hearings; therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED that the Lake of the Woods County Board of Commissioners respectfully requests the Supreme Court adopt ITV rules that allow for the use of ITV in a common sense manner consistent with public needs while maintaining the constitutional rights of individuals. 

Seconded by Commissioner Moorman and the same being put to a vote was unanimously carried.

Lake of the Woods County Government Center Building

Board Room Reservation Policy

Purpose

Interested parties may schedule and reserve the County Board Room in the Government Center Building for educational and/or useful community purposes.  County facilities may not be reserved for religious, commercial, or partisan political uses or endorsements.

Scheduling

Scheduling and room reservations for the County Board Room must be made through the Office of the Auditor.  Scheduling is done on a first-come, first served basis; however, Lake of the Woods County Board of Commissioners will take precedence over any and all requests.  Request to schedule the County Board Room for video conferencing or to view a satellite downlink will be the responsibility of the facilitator of the meeting to set-up.

Board Room cannot be scheduled on paid holidays, weekends or evenings when no staff is available to lock-up.  A County employee facilitating the meeting and taking responsibility for locking up and coordinating procedures with Maintenance Department and their own Department Supervisor would be the only exception.

Use Expectations

It is expected that groups using the Government Center Building will leave the facilities in the same condition in which they were found (ex. tables and chairs in proper order, waste in proper containers).  Users will be responsible for and will be charged for damage to equipment or the facility.  The county will not provide refreshments, coffee or paper products. Requests for access to county photocopying machines and fax machines are only available during regular business hours.
