7.FARGO TAX INCENTIVE PROJECT FOR ELLIOTT PLACE 4 AND ELLIOT PLACE 9, County to participate in PILOT for 17 years
The Fargo City Assessor forwarded information to the Cass County Commission regarding applications received from Elliott Place 4 and Elliott Place 9 for two payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) requests. Jim Gilmour, Fargo Director of Strategic Planning & Research, said the projects will be located at 4462 30th Avenue South and will include 84 housing units for senior affordable housing. The projects are sponsored by the Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority in partnership with Blue Line Development. There are two PILOT applications because there are two different ownership groups for the one project. The project will use 9% in Low Income Housing Tax Credits (LIHTC) funding, and both PILOT applications are for a 17-year period. Mr. Gilmour said taxes will be paid on the land but not on the building. The Fargo High Rise will be demolished or repurposed within the next two years, so low income housing for senior citizens is needed. The project is not feasible without property tax incentives and tax credits. The Fargo City Commission voted unanimously to approve the PILOT requests.
Matthew Pike, Executive Director of the Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority, said 84 vouchers through the LIHTC program will be committed to this building for senior affordable housing.
Mr. Pawluk asked about the design life of the new building. Mr. Pike said it will be constructed for long-term use, which he estimates at 30 to 50 years. Mr. Pawluk asked about future use of the Fargo High Rise. Mr. Pike said the building has cast iron wastewater pipes with asbestos that needs to be removed and it most likely will be cost prohibitive to rehabilitate the building and it may need to be demolished.
Mr. Peterson asked about the $2.4 million in developer fees. Mr. Pike said the cost will be split with Blue Line Development. The Fargo Housing Authority will reinvest the fees back into affordable housing in Fargo. Mr. Pike said Blue Line Development was chosen through a Request for Proposals process, and the local architect and contractor for the project were publicly bid.
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to participate in the request for a payment in lieu taxes (PILOT) incentive for two low income housing projects in partnership with the Fargo Housing and Redevelopment Authority submitted by Elliott Place 4 and Elliott Place 9 for a 17-year period. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
8.FARGO TAX INCENTIVE PROJECT FOR PRx PERFORMANCE, County to not participate in PILOT and to negotiate terms with the city
The Fargo City Assessor forwarded information to the Cass County Commission regarding an application received from PRx Performance for a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) project located at 4125 24th Avenue North to construct a 140,000 square foot headquarters, industrial and manufacturing facility. Mr. Gilmour said the application is for a 10-year exemption at 100% for the first five years with incremental reductions in the percentages for years five through ten.
Brian Brasch, CEO of PRx Performance, said their business has an opportunity to further expand their building to include additional equipment. He asked for additional time on his request. Mr. Gilmour said a new application will be filed by Mr. Brasch to include the project changes for consideration by the Fargo Tax Exempt Review Committee, Fargo City Commission and Cass County Commission.
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to not participate in the request for a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) for a new headquarters, industrial and manufacturing facility submitted by PRx performance for a 10-year period and to negotiate the terms of the property tax incentive with the city as described in N.D.C.C. Chapter 40-05-24. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
9.CAREER WORKFORCE ACADEMY FUNDING UPDATE
The commission was previously asked to participate in a public/private partnership to fund construction of a Career Workforce Academy (CWA) for up to $15 million. Commissioners Peterson and Pawluk serve on the CWA Executive Committee. Federal stimulus dollars are available through the U.S. Department of Commerce to help offset construction costs. These funds are meant to help with the economic fallout resulting from the Coronavirus. The CWA Executive Committee reached out to Lake Agassiz Development Group (LADG) to develop a competitive grant application under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The application will require information on the source of funding commitments for the remaining dollars.
Mr. Peterson said a revised capital budget was proposed by the CWA Executive Committee changing the total project cost from $30 million to $25,220,000. Cass County, Fargo, West Fargo, and Fueling the Future will all be asked to provide a local cost share as part of the application. The Department of Commerce application request will be for $5 million. The proposal is for Cass County is to provide $5 million. He will support the county cost share because it is needed as part of the application process.
Mr. Pawluk said the county can continue to levy one mill until $5 million is raised. He said there is a possibility that the project will not receive federal funding. He is unwilling to support more than $5 million in county funding and if more is requested, he believes the issue should go to the vote of county residents.
Mr. Steen said the federal grant is important and he supports the local cost share from Cass County for $5 million.
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Steen seconded to support the $5 million cost share for the construction of a Career Workforce Academy. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
10.ROAD DEPARTMENT, Purchase agreement for Phillips home buyout approved
Jason Benson, County Engineer, said Cass County applied for Flood Mitigation Assistance and Pre-Disaster Mitigation applications late last year for six properties in Cass County that have experienced flooding issues and whose owners had requested buyouts. The county did not receive grant funding from either application. There was discussion on the use of flood sales tax dollars for property purchases. The Flood Sales Tax Policy allows home buyouts on properties with a history of flooding or riverbank slumping.
Last month the Flood Sales Tax Committee approved the buyout of property located at 2623 173rd Avenue SE in Section13 of Harwood Township owned by Daniel and Melissa Phillips for up to 90% of the total project cost. Mr. Benson said the property is located near the confluence of the Sheyenne River and Red River and will continue to experience flooding issues after the Metro Flood Diversion project is built. There are also soil stability issues and as a result, the home has experienced significant slumping problems. The proposal today is to purchase only the structure, which will be demolished. The land will stay in the Phillips' names and will be deed restricted to prevent any future building on the property. Mr. Benson said the owners will pay 10% of the overall acquisition and demolition cost, which totals $217,000. Approximately $145,000 to $155,000 of flood sales tax money will be used based on the quote received for the structure, asbestos testing and removal, lead paint removal, and demolition.
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to authorize the county engineer to proceed with the Phillips home buyout subject to state's attorney approval. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
Robert Wilson, County Administrator, provided an update on activities associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Mr. Wilson said the plan was to remove the appointment status to enter county buildings and open them to the public beginning today. However, he received concerns from employees about the difficulty to ensure social distancing requirements within different offices and building spaces, so this action has been delayed. More specific procedures are needed to limit the number of people gathering in areas before an overall change is implemented.
Mr. Wilson said the county should receive information soon about the status of CARES Act funding requests submitted by Cass County. One of the requests to upgrade the jail intake area was deferred in June. He will provide updates to the board once he receives information from the state.
Mr. Wilson said the East Central Judicial District Court has begun in-person court hearings and will begin jury trials the week of July 13th. Courtroom modifications were completed to allow for social distancing. Also, audio equipment was purchased at a cost of $20,186.68 for jurors to interact without touching the same equipment. He said the cost is expected to be reimbursed through CARES Act funds.
Mr. Pawluk questioned the cost and said it is not a county responsibility. Mr. Wilson said the county applied for reimbursement of the cost in order for the courts to function after re-opening during the pandemic. Mr. Peterson said statewide the court system did not apply for CARES Act funding, and this equipment was needed as part of jury trials beginning next week. State's Attorney Birch Burdick said state law outlines the duties of the county commission, which includes provisions to provide for the space and equipping of courtrooms.
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to approve the purchase of audio equipment in the amount of $20,186.68 for District Court. On roll call vote, the motion carried with Mr. Steen, Mr. Breitling, Mrs. Scherling, and Mr. Peterson voting "Yes"; Mr. Pawluk voting "No".
Mr. Wilson said Fargo Cass Public Health was involved with a program to house homeless individuals and victims of domestic violence while waiting for Coronavirus test results or when quarantined. The program was under state control until June 30th and has been turned over to local entities. He said local shelters will handle program operations, but Cass County and Fargo may be responsible for some costs, which may be eligible for reimbursement through CARES Act funds.
12.APPOINTMENTS, NDCCA Standing Committees
The President of the North Dakota County Commissioners' Association (NDCCA) will appoint county commissioners to serve on Standing Committees for their organization. Mr. Peterson is on the North Dakota County Commissioners' Association Board and is part of the Legislative Committee. Commissioners volunteered to submit their names for consideration on the following committees:
Rick Steen, Audit Committee
Duane Breitling, Legislative Committee
Mary Scherling, Nominating Committee
Ken Pawluk, Resolutions Committee
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Pawluk seconded to approve the submission of the names as outlined above for consideration to the Standing Committees of the North Dakota County Commissioners' Association. Motion carried.
13.COUNTY CORONER, Retirement of Dr. John Baird; position to be forwarded to salary consultant
Mr. Wilson said Dr. John Baird submitted a letter regarding his plan to retire as Cass County Coroner effective August 31, 2020. He and Dr. Baird have discussed the option of partnering with either Sanford or Essentia in Fargo to employ a forensic pathologist to serve as coroner. Mr. Wilson contacted both facilities and neither was interested in the proposal at this time.
There was discussion on how to proceed with filling the position, which currently is contracted and appointed by the Cass County Commission. Dr. Baird works on a part-time basis for approximately $25,000 per year. The office has two full-time deputy coroners and two part-time death investigators.
Mr. Burdick outlined state law regarding the coroner. The county commission shall appoint a "qualified individual to fill a vacancy". He outlined those individuals who are eligible to serve in the position, which include a physician, advanced practice or registered nurse, physician assistant, or any other person determined by the state forensic examiner to be qualified to serve as coroner. He spoke with the state forensic examiner, who said the coroner does not necessarily need to have medical training-experience and an interest in the work is the most valuable credentials for the position. He said the term of appointment is for five years as outlined in state law.
Mr. Wilson discussed the current staff in the Coroner's Office and their capabilities. Mrs. Scherling asked if there is a plan for an interim coroner in the event a permanent replacement is not appointed prior to the retirement of Dr. Baird. Mr. Wilson recommends the Human Resources Director help develop a Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ) for the County Coroner to submit to Gallagher Benefit Services to be classified as a county employee and to conduct a recruitment and hiring process similar to other appointed department positions. He said the county could continue with the same basic structure in place but would need to appoint a new coroner by September 1st.
Mr. Pawluk said under state law the sheriff could serve as coroner or possibly an employee within the office could be appointed as an interim coroner.
There was discussion on the fiscal impact in appointing a full-time position, but there could be some adjustments made to the other positions within the office if necessary. Mr. Peterson said the commission could possibly promote someone from within the office or could choose to advertise for the position.
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Steen seconded to direct the Human Resources Director to prepare a Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ) and forward to Gallagher Benefit Services for classification. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
14.FLOOD DIVERSION, Transfer of sales tax dollars authorized to City of Fargo
Mr. Montplaisir presented a request to transfer 94% of the flood sales tax dollars for June that are dedicated to the FM Metro Flood Diversion project to the City of Fargo.
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to authorize the County Finance Director to transfer $808,949.62 to the City of Fargo as the fiscal agent for the Metro Flood Diversion Authority. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
15.FLOOD CONTROL, State Water Commission reimbursement requests approved for Metro Flood Diversion Authority; OHB Levee
The state legislature approved a total of $450 million during the last three legislative sessions to be spent on flood control costs.

The 103rd request is for the purchase of three vacant lots at tax forfeiture auction and pay application for OHB Ring Levee Phases C and D.
