2. Consent Agenda Items
2a) Purchase: (3) Pull-Behind Mowers Meet the Board
Members : http://www.
The fiscal year 06-07 budget includes $34,000 for out-front conservationboard.org
mower replacement. In an effort to reduce mowing costs
throughout the organization the natural resource unit has
explored facilitating our traditional mowing process with pull-
behind tri-deck rotary finishing mowers. We have demonstrated
four different mowers. These include: Progressive Model TD65
(15.5 Ft.), Land-Pride AFM 4014 (14.9 Ft.), Land-Pride AFM 4011
(11Ft.) and a Locke Turf 11ft.
After demonstrating and seeing the capability of each mower,
we believe that we can substantially reduce our mowing/labor
costs by utilizing pull-behind mowers in conjunction with our
out-front mowers. The mowers will be stationed at Jester Park,
Thomas Mitchell and Easter Lake.
Invitations to bid were sent to Tri-State Company, VanWall
Equipment and TurfWerks. Bids were received from Van-Wall
Equipment and TurfWerks.

Polk County Conservation Board Meeting - June 7, 2006 2 Back to Agenda
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: that the Board approve purchasing
three pull-behind finishing mowers model Land-Pride AFM 4014
(14.9 F) and a set of replacement blades for each unit from
Van-Wall Equipment at cost not to exceed $32, 213.88.
2b) Holiday Schedule, Fiscal 06/07 Appendix 2b
Attached is a copy of a resolution passed by the Polk County Holiday Schedule 06/07
Board of Supervisors and the supporting letter of understand - Resolution and The
ing in regard to a change in the holiday schedule for fiscal year Supporting Letter
06/07. President’s Day scheduled to be celebrated the 3rd
Monday in February (2/19/2007) will be celebrated on July 3,
2006.
There is no intent of the Board of Supervisors to penalize any de
partment for this change in the holiday schedule. A budget
amendment could be submitted in August to cover any over
time created by this change in holidays. Staff feel the overtime
will be minimal.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: That the Board approve a change
in the holiday schedule for fiscal 06/07 per actions taken by the
Polk County Board of Supervisors.
2c) Action on the Bill List
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: That the Board approve the May
2006 expenditures.
3. Resource Enhancement
3a) 28E Agreement, Ankeny to Woodward Trail
Attached is a revised 28E agreement for the Ankeny to Wood Appendix 3a
ward trail. You approved a 28E agreement in March. At that
time, we expected revisions would occur. While they have Joint Public Service
largely been “wordsmithing” in nature, we have had so many Agreement (Ankeny)
changes to the document that it is unrealistic to simply amend
the original agreement. Instead, we’re asking for you to ap
prove this agreement, superseding the document approved
earlier. The notable changes here are two-fold:
1) The earlier agreement stipulated specific dollar amounts
that would be the responsibility of each participating
jurisdiction. Now the agreement does not commit jurisdic
tions. Instead, the Ankeny to Woodward Trail Steering
Committee will make recommendations on how to
spend the dollars available for a phase of the project as
it approaches if the full funding required for a phase is
Polk County Conservation Board Meeting - June 7, 2006 3 Back to Agenda
not yet available.
2. Originally, two representatives from the Ankeny to Wood
ward Trail Steering committee plus one representative
from PCC were to participate in Public Works’ review of
the engineering qualifications. This agreement allows for
three committee representatives to participate. (Note:
By the time this comes before you, that qualifications
review will have occurred).
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: That the Board approve the joint
public service agreement (28E) between Polk County, Iowa
and the jurisdictions of Ankeny, Madrid, Sheldahl, Slater, Wood
ward, Boone County Conservation Board, Polk Conservation
Board, Dallas County Conservation Board, and the Story County
Conservation Board super seding the 28E agreement approved
in March of 2006 by this body.
3b) 28E Agreement, Trestle-to-Trestle Trail Appendix 3b
Please review the attached 28E Agreement for the Trestle-To- Joint Public Service
Trestle Trail between City of Des Moines, City of Johnston, and Agreement (Des
Polk County Conservation. Staff recommendation regarding Moines, Johnston)
this agreement will be made Wednesday night.
3c) Projects for New Resources Support
Polk County Conservation is working with at least two initiatives
for resource enhancement: The (relatively) newly formed Great
Outdoors Fund and potentially the Greater Des Moines Partner
ship’s one-cent sales tax initiative. (You will have a detailed
presentation on that initiative by Jay Byers of the partnership
in July. Due to the Partnership’s annual D.C. trip, we could not
secure that presentation for this meeting). The GOF Board has
asked for recommendations from PCCB for 3-5 “focus” projects
for that organization’s fundraising efforts. At the same time, we
need to identify projects to take to the Board of Supervisors for
potential inclusion in a “community plan” for possible funding
by the one-cent tax if it passes in November.
At the meeting Wednesday night, the director will make a brief
presentation on a series of projects, including:
• Easter Lake Master Plan/Trail and Associated Lake/Wa
tershed Restoration
• Ankeny to Woodward Trail, Trestle to Trestle Trail, Central
Iowa Trails Network
Polk County Conservation Board Meeting - June 7, 2006 4 Back to Agenda
• Des Moines River Greenbelt
• Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation Land Purchase
at CBG
• Chichaqua Field House and Associated “Public
Welcome” Features
• Mally’s Park Plan
• Jester Park Natural Playscape
• Park Cabins (System-Wide Program)
• Park and Trails Security/Phones (System-Wide Pro
gram)
We will not have detailed budget estimates for all of
these projects, but can paint a picture of what might be
involved and will make recommendations on Wednes-
day evening for how to potentially unfold these projects
for new resources support.
3d) Ankeny to Woodward State Recreational Trails Grant Appendix 3d
Support
The Letter of Support
On behalf of the Ankeny to Woodard Trail Project, the Iowa Nat
ural Heritage Foundation is preparing a grant application to the
State Recreational Trails Fund. It is still to be determined which
project partner will be the primary grant applicant. The State
Recreational Trails Fund requires an Official Endorsement by par
ticipating agencies, a letter of support, and documented com
mitment to trails maintenance for 20 years. This was also the re
quirement for the Ankeny to Woodard Trail grants previously
awarded.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: That Board approve supporting the
State Recreational Trails grant request for the Ankeny to Wood
ward Trail, recommit to 20 years of maintenance on the trail,
and authorize board chair and director to sign the letter of sup
port attached.

ATTACHMENT A
The purpose of this Agreement is to establish the terms and conditions of the
relationship between Polk County, the Cities, and the County Conservation Boards, for the
construction and maintenance of the Ankeny to Woodward Trail. This corridor is or will be
owned by each of the public agencies and managed as a multi-use recreational trail. This
property is subject to the terms and conditions of the National Trails System Act, 16
U.S.C.1247(d), and 49 C.F.R. 1152.29, and the terms and conditions contained in the Decisions
served January 13, 2003 by the Surface Transportation Board in STB Docket No. AB33 (Sub-
No 187X) and September 3, 2003 by the Surface Transportation Board in STB Docket No.
AB33 (Sub-No. 206X) (Trail Use Decisions).
The project will consist of grading and paving of a 10’ wide hard surfaced multiuse
recreational trail in each jurisdiction, repair and reconstruction of existing bridges and
construction of trail head facilities. In some portions of the trail corridor, the project will also
include surface preparation of an equestrian trail meeting the recommendations of Iowa Trails
2000 Design Guidelines for Equestrian Trails, adjacent to the hard-surface trail from Slater to
Woodward. Total estimated cost of these improvements is approximately $7,533,000. The
project funding currently includes $5,520,000 in Federal High Priority Transportation
Improvement Program funds allocated as part of the 2005 Federal Highway SAFTEA – LU
legislation which will be formalized by a separate federal funding agreement between Polk
County and the Iowa Department of Transportation. Information provided by the Iowa
Department of Transportation indicates that the High Priority funds will likely only receive an
85% allocation of the original award amount, therefore the estimated funding used for planning
purposes is $4,727,328.
14
Construction of the project will be completed in the following phases:
Cost Completed
Phase 1: ROW Acquisition $ 975,000 2005
Phase 2: Trail, Bridge, and Structure Design, $ 396,000 2006
Aesthetic design, and Public Art Plan
Phase 3: Construct Des Moines River Bridge, $2,554,000 2007
Culvert and Drainage Improvements
Phase 4: Ankeny to Woodward Trail Construction $3,030,000 2008
With regulatory signing
Subtotal – Functional Construction Cost $6,955,000
Phase 5: Trailheads, fencing, bathrooms,
Informational signing, Timber Bridge $ 578,000 2009
Total Construction with Improvements $7,533,000
Funds Secured to Date
Federal SAFTEA – LU Funds $4,727,328
State and Regional TE Funds $1,032,073
REAP Funds $ 166,766
Subtotal $5,926,167
Remaining Funds to be secured: $1,606,833
Total Estimated Cost $7,533,000
Funding secured to date will complete Phase 3. Construction of each Phase will not begin until
the plans, specifications and funding sources have been approved by the Ankeny to Woodward
Trail Steering Committee. If available funds are not enough to complete a particular Phase, the
Ankeny to Woodward Trail Steering Committee will direct how the available funding will be
spent. Upon completion of these improvements, maintenance of the improvements shall be the
responsibility of the agency in which jurisdiction of the trail or other improvements resides.
15
16
ATTACHMENT B
Duties of Polk County
Polk County, through their Public Works Department, shall act as lead agency for this
project and shall provide all planning, concept development, preliminary engineering design
services, survey, right of way design services, right of way acquisition services, contract
administration, construction survey, and construction administration/inspection for the construction
of this project at no cost. Estimated value of Polk County’s in-kind contribution is $320,000.
However, Polk County Public Works may need to obtain the services of an independent
consulting firm to perform necessary engineering services including design and survey. These
services will be eligible for payment from the available Transportation Enhancement and Federal
Earmark funds.
Polk County will not be responsible for any maintenance or trail management of the Ankeny
to Woodward trail outside its jurisdiction.
17
ATTACHMENT C
Duties of the Cities and the County Conservation Boards
Each agency and the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation shall provide a representative to
serve on the Ankeny to Woodward (A2W) Trail Steering Committee. This Committee will have
the opportunity to provide input to Polk County Public Works concerning design issues, signing,
trailheads, bridge aesthetics, public involvement, etc. The final design cost estimate will be
presented to the A2W Trail Steering Committee for final approval before proceeding to project
letting. Two representatives of the A2W Trail Steering Committee, a representative of the
Boone County Conservation Board, and a representative of the Polk County Conservation
Board will participate in the selection process for the independent consulting firm to perform
necessary engineering services as detailed in Attachment B.
Each agency shall maintain that portion of the trail within its respective jurisdiction,
however, this does not preclude any of the participating agencies from entering into a separate
agreement for maintenance of their portion of the trail.
