RESOLUTION #2021-1, Scheduling a Public Hearing Relating to Project under Municipal Industrial Act for Red River Human Services Foundation
Attorney Jim Stewart was present to discuss a proposal from the City of Frontier to issue revenue bonds under the Municipal Industrial Development Act (MIDA). Tom Newberger, CEO of Red River Human Services Foundation, was also present.
The proceeds from these bonds will be used to finance the construction and equipping of a three-story, 31,000 square foot building to be located at 4302 17th Avenue South in Fargo. The project will be owned and operated by Red River Human Services Foundation. The building will be used for program facilities, administrative offices, and related facilities. The City of Frontier has agreed to issue the bonds, but because the project is outside its jurisdiction, Cass County is being asked to provide “host approval”. The proposed bond issue is in an amount not to exceed $5 million. A public hearing will be scheduled for February 16th.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Kapitan moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to adopt Resolution #2021-1, Scheduling a Public Hearing Relating to a Project under the Municipal Industrial Development Act (Red River Human Services Foundation Project). On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
ABATEMENT HEARINGS, Values to remain unchanged for Charleswood Commercial Estates, LLC
Paul Fracassi, County Tax Director of Equalization, was present to discuss abatement applications submitted by Sanjay Patel for Charleswood Commercial Estates, LLC. The applications are for properties located at 740, 752, 823, 833 and 837 Beaton Drive East in West Fargo. The applicant requested a reduction in 2018 values on five properties to reflect values outlined in a contract for deed that was submitted along with the applications, which listed a contract price of $1,085,000 or $3.21 per square foot. Mr. Fracassi said the five parcels originally sold in 2013 for $5.63 per square foot. The applicant is asking the values be adjusted to $2.41 per square foot for the 2018 tax year. The City of West Fargo Assessor’s Office and West Fargo City Commission denied the abatement applications.
The applicant was invited to the meeting but was not present in person or remotely.
The vice chairman opened the public hearing for comments and hearing none, closed the public hearing.
Mr. Fracassi said two of the parcels have been sold by the applicant for around $9.00 per square foot—a price that is significantly higher than the square footage listed in the contract for deed as well as the values requested in the abatement applications. He recommends no change to the values for 2018.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Kapitan moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to retain the 2018 values on abatement applications 4497 through 4501 submitted by Sanjay Patel for Charleswood Commercial Estates, LLC as previously approved by the West Fargo Assessing Office and West Fargo City Commission. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
CASS COUNTY JOINT WATER RESOURCE DISTRICT, Request approved to take immediate possession of necessary right of way for Metro Flood Diversion project
The role and responsibility of the Cass County Joint Water Resource District (CCJRWD) is to acquire property rights in Cass County needed for the Metro Flood Diversion project. The CCJWRD is asking to continue with the procedures laid out in North Dakota Century Code Section 61-16-1.09 for the commission to review whether the process was followed by the CCJWRD and grant them authorization to use quick take eminent domain for right of way easements.
Eric Dodds, Diversion Program Manager from AE2S, provided a brief overview of the process. AE2S manages acquisitions with different land firms also involved with the process. The first step to acquire a property is obtaining an appraisal.
Sean Fredricks, Attorney from Ohnstad Twichell who represents the CCJWRD, briefly discussed the statutory process for quick take eminent domain laid out in North Dakota Century Code Section 61-16-1.09. The commission is not responsible for appraisals or negotiations. The sole responsibility of the commission is to determine whether the CCJWRD has followed the statutory process as outlined in state law. It is not the role of the commission to act as the negotiator, to provide offers or to hear legal arguments. It will be the decision of the court to decide whether the appraisals are accurate or whether land is developable. An informational packet was prepared for the request today providing proof that the process was followed.
OIN 9736, 9737 (Charles Coster Real Estate Trust)
Mr. Dodds said these properties are agricultural land that will be impacted by the Diversion channel and are contiguous parcels located in Mapleton Township. The appraisal value of the land is $448,000 or $5,900 per acre. The landowner provided a counteroffer of $1,514,700, which includes $1,500,000 for 75.89 acres or $19,765 per acre and $14,700 for the temporary construction easement (TCE) acres.
Mr. Dodds said an appraisal was completed in April of 2019, which valued the land at $448,000 or $5,900 per acre. A second appraisal was done in June of 2019, which valued the land at $779,000 or $8,000 per acre.
Attorney Dan Bueide was present remotely to represent the landowner. He said the owner made a counteroffer in September of 2020 based on the first appraisal. He said the CCJWRD presented an updated offer on November 30, 2020 of $779,000 or $8,000 per acre based on a “replacement” appraisal. He does not believe the district satisfied its statutory obligations since only 50 days was given for the owner to consider the offer.
Mr. Dodds said the second appraisal completed in June of 2019 was not discovered by staff until October of 2020. The CCJWRD never ordered the second appraisal. Mr. Dodds acknowledged that an error was made and in honor of good negotiations, a second increased offer was made to the owner in November of 2020. He said a new appraisal will be ordered after the quick take is approved.
Christopher McShane, Attorney from Ohnstad Twichell, said a new appraisal will be required to establish a value on the date of the taking by the CCJWRD.
Mr. Bueide asked the commission to consider whether the offer presented by the CCJWRD provided a reasonable and diligent effort toward negotiations prior to commencement of the quick take eminent domain since it has only been 50 days after the increased offer was presented on November 30th.
Mr. Peterson understands that a mistake was made with the second appraisal and when it was discovered; however, contact by staff with the owner dates back to 2019, which is almost two years ago. He believes there has been more than enough time for a settlement to have been reached.
Mr. Fredricks agreed that discussion with the owner has been ongoing for almost two years. He said a mistake was made regarding the second appraisal done in June of 2019; however, he said the process was followed by the CCJWRD. The district decided to present an increased offer based on the second appraisal in an act of good faith. The difference between the value offered by the CCJWRD and counteroffer by the owner is significant, and it appears an agreement will not be able to be reached even with the increased offer.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Breitling moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to authorize the Cass County Joint Water Resource District to utilize quick take eminent domain under Section 61-16-1.09(2) of the North Dakota Century Code to take an easement for a right of way regarding OINs 9736 and 9737. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
COUNTY CORONER STAFFING, Request approved to convert two positions
Robert Wilson, County Administrator, said the County Coroner’s Office has experienced significant increases in caseloads, attributed partly to an increase in drug overdoses and suicides. Also, Sanford Hospital was designated as a Level 1 Trauma Center a few years ago, which means additional critical patients have been transferred to their facility and any death investigations that are needed are done by the County Coroner. Mr. Wilson said Kriste Ross was appointed as County Coroner in November after the retirement of Dr. John Baird, which has required more of her time to be devoted toward administrative duties and less time on field duties and casework.
Mr. Wilson and Mrs. Scherling, who holds the portfolio for this office, met with Ms. Ross to discuss some staffing changes. The request today is to change the half-time (.5) Death Investigator to a full-time position and to change the .2 Death Investigator to a half-time (.5) position. The individual who had held the half-time position recently resigned. Ms. Ross knows someone who is a trained Death Investigator who is interested in the full-time job. The person currently holding the .2 position is available to work additional hours.
Kriste Ross, County Coroner, briefly discussed the request. She is concerned about employee burnout with the increased caseloads in addition to the type of work they perform. She said there were 20 homicides and 20 child deaths last year. She also said there may be an opportunity to generate additional revenue for their department after the change in staffing, and she will bring this item to the commission for future discussion.
Mrs. Scherling supports the request today and said there is an opportunity to hire a person for the full-time position that is already trained which is beneficial for their office.
Mr. Breitling left the meeting at 4:36 PM.
MOTION, passed
Mrs. Scherling moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to convert a current .5 Death Investigator to a full-time Death Investigator, and a .2 Death Investigator to a .5 Death Investigator for the Cass County Coroner’s Office. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
Mr. Wilson provided an update on activities associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Fargo Cass Public Health Update
Desi Fleming, Director of Fargo Cass Public Health, said 4,200 vaccines have been given to date with another 1,200 scheduled for next week. They continue to be administered based on a phased approach. Phase 1B of individuals 75 and older and of individuals 65 and older with underlying health conditions have begun. She anticipates Phase 1B to be completed in four to six weeks. At this time only individuals with appointments are given vaccines.
Mr. Peterson wants to make sure area residents are aware that no vaccines are going unused or are sitting on shelves waiting to be used. Ms. Fleming said all vaccines are being used and none are going to waste.
Courtroom 303/304 Remodel Project
Mr. Wilson said the Courtroom 303/304 remodeling project continues with a completion date tentatively set for mid-March.
Jail Intake Expansion Project
Mr. Wilson said planning for the Jail Intake Expansion project continues. Bids are to be advertised this week with the bid opening scheduled for February 18th. There was previous discussion about replacement of some air conditioner chillers and the intercom system as part of this project. Buildings and Grounds plans to add one additional chiller to meet the capacity needs with plans to replace the current equipment in future budget cycles. Also, Buildings and Grounds will work on replacement of the intercom system. The county will save around $60,000 by completing these two elements outside the overall project scope.
Mrs. Scherling wants the county to look into the cost to replace all of the duct work and air filters at the jail. Mr. Peterson believes it will be costly but does not object to obtaining a cost estimate.
CARES Act Budget
Mr. Wilson said around $600,000 remains in Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funding. Costs for the chiller and intercom replacement work at the jail have not been taken into account, so those costs will come from the remaining dollars.
VOUCHERS, Approved
MOTION, passed
Mrs. Scherling moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to approve Voucher No. 322,971 through Voucher No. 323,270 and Electronic Payments 9357 through 9659 for a total of $6,008,609.36. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
MEETING UPDATES, Committee reports
Commissioners and staff reported on meetings they attended or will be attending in the upcoming weeks.
CORRESPONDENCE, Received and filed
MOTION, passed
Mr. Peterson moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to receive and file correspondence outlined by the secretary as follows: Motion carried.
Information from the North Dakota Public Service Commission regarding NuStar Pipeline Operating Partnership L.P. application to relocate 2.21 miles of refined petroleum pipeline that will be impacted by construction of the FM Diversion channel in Cass County (copy referred to county engineer and county planner).
MOTION, passed
On motion by Mr. Kapitan, seconded by Mr. Peterson and all in favor, the meeting was adjourned at 5:10 PM.
