The board will review the information and complete the documents at a future meeting.

Carl Wilburn, IT director, met with the board to discuss the purchase of an intrusion prevention/web content appliance for the county’s computer system to respond to potential network threats and security issues. Wilburn looked at products from Barrier 1, Fortigate, and Watchguard. Barrier 1 installed a device to demonstrate how it could benefit the county. The device can do load balancing, intrusion prevention, monitor and control bandwidth, web content filtering, and provide antivirus protection. Wilburn presented a 5-year cost comparison, with Barrier 1 being the most cost effective. Motion by Danzer, second by Meiners to approve the purchase of a Barrier 1 appliance with a first year cost of $10,900. On roll call, all voted aye. The quote from Barrier 1 includes total hardware replacement, 24/7 monitoring of the system by the service provider, software maintenance, and vulnerability assessment.

Board proceeded to discuss regionalization of mental health services. The county has until April 1, 2013 to formally apply to join a region and until May 1, 2013 to formally apply for an exemption. If a county applies to opt out, the state has 45 days to render a decision. Beardmore said he strongly feels the county should opt out of regionalization. Danzer said he is not ready to make that decision. There will be a regionalization meeting in Denison on August 22nd, and Danzer favors not making a decision until that meeting has been held. Bock also favors standing alone, but said he is still open to joining other counties. The mental health services Carroll County would need to add in order to stand alone are family support, peer support, and health homes. Bock did not feel it would be difficult to add these services. Meiners said he is leaning toward opting out, but is still open to the possibility of joining with other counties. Danzer and Meiners both expressed concerns about what would happen if the state denied the county’s application to opt out. It is unknown if the state would determine which region Carroll County would join, or if the county would be able to choose the region they want to join. Nieland said he is also strongly leaning toward opting out of regionalization. If Carroll County would choose to join with other counties, the general consensus was the fewer counties the better. The entire board is focused on the best interest of the consumers in Carroll County and the future of Carroll County’s mental health financial reserves.
