-North Dakota Department of Emergency Services-public assistance disaster grant agreement related to COVID-19 emergency protective measures.
Mr. Peterson asked for public comment and hearing none, moved on to the regular agenda items.
The Fargo City Assessor forwarded information to the Cass County Commission regarding a request received for Tax Increment Financing (TIF) for 505 Oak Street North from Enclave Development. The proposed project is located southeast of 6th Avenue North and Oak Street. The block is primarily vacant with one 4-unit apartment building and single-family rental house that is occupied, which will need to be demolished as part of the redevelopment of the site.
Austin Morris from Enclave Development briefly discussed the proposal. He said the redevelopment of this area will require soil correction and remediation along with construction of a flood protection levee. The proposal is to construct a building with 117 apartment rental units and 14 condos on the top floor, which will provide residential rental and home ownership opportunities. The project would not be able to move forward without financial support from the city and county. He said the developers will barely receive a 4% cash return based on the "but for" report prepared for the project. He said concerns and questions from neighborhood residents were taken into consideration during this process. The project will finish the last section of levee construction in the Oak Grove area and will clean up this site.
Mrs. Scherling asked about the sales price of the condos and when owners would pay property taxes. Mr. Morris said prices will range from $300,000 to $750,000. He said owners will pay property taxes after the five-year renaissance zone expires.
Michael Redlinger, Assistant Fargo City Administrator, said the Fargo Tax Exempt Review Committee approved the application. He said the project will be a positive addition to the City of Fargo.
Mr. Steen believes this is a good project for the neighborhood but questioned if there is any way to reduce costs. He said the county would contribute around $790,000 for a 15-year TIF. It would be approximately $250,000 in county funding if approved for five years. He does not support the 15-year TIF request. He believes the first five years of TIF will meet the debt service coverage, which he supports.
Mr. Peterson understands there is a cost for green field development. He said the building is aesthetically pleasing and knows a great deal of time has been invested with the neighborhood residents. The purchase option is also a positive benefit, but he struggles with 15 years of TIF.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to participate in the request for a Tax Increment Finance (TIF) District in the City of Fargo for years one through five submitted by Enclave Development for new housing on property located southeast of Oak Street and 6th Avenue North. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
8.CASS COUNTY JOINT WATER RESOURCE DISTRICT, Requests 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, said a purchase agreement has been reached with OIN 5016 (Cheryl Evert Etal). He provided a brief overview of the process. AE2S manages acquisitions with four land firms 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. Informational packets were prepared for each of the requests today providing proof that the process was followed.
OIN 698 9756 9757 9758 9759 (Glen Libbrecht)
Mr. Dodds said these properties are agricultural land located within the Diversion channel north of I-94. Only partial acquisition of these parcels is needed for the project. OINs 945, 9741 and 9760 are also owned by the Libbrecht family. Legal counsel has been obtained by the landowner with an independent appraisal being done.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Breitling 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 and temporary easements regarding OINs 698, 9756, 9757, 9758 and 9759. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
OIN 945 9741 9760 (Marilyn Libbrecht)
Mr. Dodds said these properties are agricultural land located within the Diversion channel directly north of the previous parcels owned by Glen Libbrecht. Only partial acquisition of these parcels is needed for the project. Legal counsel has been obtained by the landowner with an independent appraisal being done.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Breitling moved and Mr. Steen 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 easements for right of way regarding OINs 945, 9741 and 9760. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
OIN 9199 (Lisa Loberg and Steve Loberg)
Mr. Dodds said this parcel is agricultural land needed as part of the realignment of 38th Street West. OINs 9738 and 9739 are also owned by the Loberg family. Legal counsel has been obtained by the landowner.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling 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 and temporary easements regarding OIN 9199. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
OIN 9738 9739 (Steve Loberg)
Mr. Dodds said this parcel is agricultural land located within the Diversion channel. OIN 9199 is also owned by the Loberg family. Legal counsel has been obtained by the landowner.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling 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 and temporary easements regarding OINs 9738 and 9739. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
9.ROAD DEPARTMENT, Speed limit increased to 65 mph on designated county highways
Jason Benson, County Engineer, said in 2005 the state legislature changed state law to allow counties to post two-lane highways at speed limits of 65 miles per hour (mph). Speed limits on highways are 55 mph unless otherwise posted. The county has received requests from residents over the years to increase the speed limit on certain roads as they also travel two-lane North Dakota state highways within the county that are 65 mph. The option to increase speed limits has been discussed by the county over the past five years. The highways that are being proposed today meet engineering guidelines to handle the increase in speed.
The Road Advisory Committee met in July and determined that public comments should be sought regarding the potential change. The Highway Department conducted an online survey that was available from September 15th to October 9th on the county website. Mr. Benson said 1,614 votes were cast in favor and 54 votes in opposition to the change-or almost 97% in favor of the proposal. Many comments were also provided by residents expressing their opinions with the majority in support of 65 mph on the highways designated by the Highway Department.
Mr. Steen said County Highway 26 seems to have generated the most comments. Mr. Breitling said this road services a school and asked if there are concerns since some students drive to school. Mr. Benson said new warning signal lights were installed at this location, which are activated during school hours and during other events to support reduced speeds for safer access in and out of the school. He believes the speed limit is 45 mph when the signal lights are used.
Mr. Peterson said the commission received a phone call and email today from a citizen asking to provide comments. He said even though it is not a public hearing, he is willing to hear from the individual.
Mike Lovejoy lives along County Road 4 near Argusville. His children get on and off the school bus at this area, and he is concerned about the increase in speed limits. He was surprised about the recommendation and said neither he nor his neighbors were contacted about the change. There are three different bus stops between County Road 4 in Argusville and County Road 11 in Mapleton. He said there has been an increase in traffic over the years by people traveling along I-29 getting off at County Road 4 and using this route to County Road 11 in Mapleton as a means to bypass the traffic around the metro area. He asked the commission to allow residents in this area to be given an opportunity to provide comments.
Mr. Steen asked if this a valid concern that County 4 from Argusville to County 11 in Mapleton is being used as a bypass. Mr. Benson this traffic pattern does occur and said construction of a north-south bypass has been proposed as part of the future transportation plan but anticipates it will not be done for at least ten years.
Mr. Benson said additional signs posting the 55 mph speed limit will be placed at the different intersections where they change to 65 mph so travelers are aware. Mr. Steen said the county could allow residents living in the portion of Cass 11 from Mapleton to Cass 4 additional time to comment on the change.
Mr. Pawluk believes the county highways are well-designed to move traffic safely and efficiently and people drive at speeds they feel safe. He supports the recommendation and said the reason the county considered this issue is because of requests made by residents to increase speed limits.
MOTION, failed due to lack of a second
Mr. Pawluk moved to approve an increase in the speed limit to 65 mph for 134 miles of Cass County Highways to include Cass 6 from North Dakota Highway 18 to Cass 38; Cass 10 from Wheatland to Mapleton; Cass 4 from North Dakota Highway 38 to Argusville; Cass 26 from Barnes County to I-29; Cass 38 from North Dakota Highway 46 to I-94; Cass 11 from Mapleton to Cass 4; and Cass 15 from Kindred to I-94. The motion failed due to lack of a second.
There was discussion about removing Cass 11 from Mapleton to Cass 4 given the concerns with additional traffic by non-locals using it as a bypass so residents have the chance to provide comments.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to approve an increase in the speed limit to 65 mph on Cass County highways to include Cass 6 from North Dakota Highway 18 to Cass 38; Cass 10 from Wheatland to Mapleton; Cass 4 from North Dakota Highway 38 to Argusville; Cass 26 from Barnes County to I-29; Cass 38 from North Dakota Highway 46 to I-94; and Cass 15 from Kindred to I-94. Discussion: Mrs. Scherling believes it is appropriate to delay an increase on Cass 11 from Mapleton to Cass 4 to receive additional input from residents; however, after input is received, the county should move forward with this section of road. Mr. Steen understands that County 11 will most likely be part of a future bypass route. Mr. Pawluk will support the motion because he supports the increase on all roads recommended by the County Engineer; however, he also supports an increase on Cass 11 to Cass 4. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
Mr. Peterson believes the county can do a better job to inform the public on these types of issues. He knows there was quite a bit of public input on this topic and understands the difficulties sometimes involved in getting the word out to residents.
Mr. Benson said this issue received a significant amount of public interest and comments compared to other issues in the past and attributed it to the efforts of his staff and the Public Information Coordinator.
10.ROAD DEPARTMENT, Proposal for Davenport Highway shop addition tabled
Two proposals were received from Pfau Construction and RJS Building Systems for construction of an addition to the Highway Department shop at 85 1st Avenue in Davenport. This item was tabled at the last meeting to clarify the total cost and the work to be done by the contractor.
Mr. Benson said the low bid was from RJS Building Systems to construct the building at a cost of $82,865. RJS would subcontract for the concrete work at a cost of $43,351 with a total quote of $124,216. The proposal excludes electrical, pre-site preparation and other miscellaneous items. Final documents for the property purchase connected to this project are pending, so the request is to approve the proposal contingent on the property closing.
Mr. Benson said $400,000 was budgeted for this project. The total cost will be $300,000 for the land purchase and the building addition. He said it will be a challenge to complete the building by the end of the year because of a shortage of steel materials and shipping delays due to COVID-19.
There was discussion on the cost difference between the two proposals submitted for the building addition. Mr. Steen asked if a better option is to wait and bid on this project in 2021. Mr. Peterson anticipates a 10% increase in construction costs next year given the current environment.
Blaine Laaveg, Highway Superintendent, said there is a $1,500 difference between the two proposals with RJS Building Systems being the lower proposal. He anticipates it will take 10 to 12 weeks to receive the building materials.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Steen seconded to approve the proposal with RJS Building Systems, Inc. and authorize the chair to sign a purchase order in the amount of $124,216 pending the closing on a property at 85 1st Avenue in Davenport. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
11.COUNTY CORONER, Kriste Ross appointed
Robert Wilson, County Administrator, said Interim County Coroner Kriste Ross was the only candidate to apply for the County Coroner position. A second application was received but it was submitted after the deadline.
Ms. Ross was interviewed earlier this month by a committee consisting of Commissioner Peterson, Commissioner Steen, State's Attorney Birch Burdick, Sheriff Jesse Jahner and County Administrator Robert Wilson. The committee determined Ms. Ross meets the qualifications for the position and unanimously recommended she be hired as the Cass County Coroner.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to appoint Kriste Ross as Cass County Coroner for a term of five years effective November 1, 2020, at a Step 5 / Paygrade D62 with an annual salary of $81,652. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
Michael Montplaisir, Finance Director, provided a list of real estate forfeited to Cass County for three years of delinquent taxes, pursuant to North Dakota Century Code Chapter 57-28. The list shows the minimum sales price as recommended by the County Finance Director to be published in the official county newspaper, posted on the county website, and sent to cities and townships with properties on the list.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to set the minimum sales prices as recommended by the County Finance Director, and set the hearing date on the minimum sales prices for 3:30 PM on November 2, 2020, in the Cass County Commission Room. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
Mr. Wilson said part of the strategic plan implemented last year was appointment of an Accountability Team to review and offer feedback on the goals outlined in the plan. The team is made up of county staff Blair Hodge, Jason Benson, Amanda Johnson, Cindy Risk, and Levon Kohoutek and Commissioner Breitling.
The team met last month and discussed county workforce, operational excellence, outreach and engagement, embracing growth, and opportunities for improvement. There was appreciation expressed by the team about what has been done to date in listening to employees. Mr. Wilson said the hiring of the Public Information Coordinator and the addition of a Human Resources Payroll Clerk will allow the Human Resources Director to focus on other goals outlined in the plan.
Mrs. Scherling asked what is being done to ensure the county has a vibrant and happy workforce. Mr. Wilson said one suggestion was to improve communications internally between the different departments. He said Catlin Solum, Public Information Coordinator, has begun to work on this issue and will continue to work on different ideas including taking over the duties of the county newsletter.
Mr. Wilson said work will continue on the different goals outlined in the strategic plan.
14.ALERTUS PANIC ALARMS, Purchase order for additional panic buttons and alert beacons
Mr. Wilson said the Alertus program is currently used for immediate employee notifications and is installed on all desktop computers, county cell phones and personal phones installed with the software. Notifications are sent for severe weather, office closures, network disruptions and suspicious activities involving county facilities. There is an opportunity to expand the use of Alertus through installing panic alarms in county buildings that will tie into the current system.
Mr. Wilson is requesting to purchase and install 65 panic buttons connected to desktop computers, five wall-mounted alert beacons and 10 hard-wired panic buttons in the Courthouse and Annex. The total cost is $20,235. The 2020 Courthouse maintenance budget includes $100,000 for an emergency intercom system and will cover the cost.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Steen moved and Mrs. Scherling seconded to authorize the chair to sign a purchase order with Alertus Technologies LLC in the amount of $20,235 to purchase and install additional panic buttons and alert beacons in the Courthouse and Annex buildings. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
Mr. Wilson provided an update on activities associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The number of active cases in Cass County is growing and he discussed changes regarding the mask policy and remote working.
Mask policy
Mr. Wilson is proposing stricter mask guidelines for staff that require them to be worn in county buildings when they are not by themselves in their office or when outside their workspace. Visitors will continue to be required to wear masks in county buildings unless they indicate they are unable to wear a mask due to medical conditions.
Mr. Pawluk thinks the policy is not strict enough and should require all visitors to wear masks with no exceptions. Mr. Wilson said the policy was drafted with input from public health officials, but he could make additional changes if the board wishes.
State's Attorney Birch Burdick said at this time only two of the seven judges require individuals in their courtrooms to wear masks. He said the Fargo Mayor has issued a mask mandate today for the City of Fargo, but there is no enforcement provision included in his mandate. He said the commission has authority over mask usage in county buildings. The commission may also enact an ordinance for a mask mandate, but this would apply only to areas outside of incorporated cities. He is not sure that the county or any other entity could not be sued over a mandate and said enforcement would be very difficult.
Mrs. Scherling said it is very important that everyone wear masks. She asked if the website could include more information on this and other issues related to the virus, including avoidance of large gatherings. She stressed that resources be utilized to get the word out to the public. Mr. Wilson said the Public Information Coordinator is continually monitoring public health information on social media and websites.
Sheriff Jesse Jahner said staff at the Courthouse and Annex security desks are instructing visitors to wear masks and have them available to hand out. He also discussed issues with enforcing this type of mandate amid present concerns with the inmate population at the jail.
Mr. Wilson will have a follow-up discussion with Mr. Burdick and District Court regarding more stringent use of masks for the courtrooms.
Remote working
Mr. Wilson is encouraging remote work for as many employees as possible given the increase in cases. Information Technology assisted with this effort in March. However, their resources are now focused on election-related duties associated with early voting and election day. Their staff are not available now to trouble shoot new equipment, so he encourages remote working for staff already set up for this option.
Sub-allocation of CARES Act funds
Mr. Wilson said the City of Horace formally requested a share of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act funds that Cass County received from the state for expenses incurred related to COVID-19. Horace contracts with the county for police services provided by the Sheriff's Office. The state used a calculation of five months (March through September 2020) for licensed peace officer payroll expenses. Horace has requested $97,752.13 based on the value of the monthly contract of $13,964.59 paid for those five months.
Mr. Wilson and Mr. Peterson spoke with Horace officials after receiving their request to further discuss the issue. The CARES Act funds are not intended as a reimbursement for law enforcement salaries but for costs incurred as a result of the virus. Mr. Peterson said if the commission does this for one entity, it will need to do the same for all entities who contract with the county. Also, these funds will assist the county with many other expenses outside of law enforcement.
No action was taken by the board on the request from Horace.
16.FLOOD CONTROL, State Water Commission reimbursement request approved
The state legislature approved a total of $450 million during the last three legislative sessions to be spent on flood control costs. For consideration today is the 107th request for eligible costs incurred from August 1, 2020, to August 31, 2020, for local matching share requirements outlined in House Bill 1020 for the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Area Flood Risk Management Project. The request is for the final retainage payout on the 2nd Street North pump station project; pay application for 2nd Street South and Main Avenue flood mitigation; utility relocation for the Diversion Channel; and building permit application fee for the Wild Rice River Control Structure.
MOTION, passed
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Steen seconded to authorize the chair to sign reimbursement request #107 in the amount of $544,675.95 to the State Water Commission to distribute funds to the Metro Flood Diversion Authority according to the terms and conditions of House Bill 1020. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
17. VOUCHERS, Approved
MOTION, passed
Mr. Pawluk moved and Mr. Peterson seconded to approve Voucher No. 321,525 through Voucher No. 321,782 and Electronic Payments 9007 through 9091 for a total of $1,759,070.92. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously.
18.MEETING UPDATES, Committee reports
Commissioners and staff reported on meetings they attended or will be attending in the upcoming weeks.
19.CORRESPONDENCE, Received and filed
MOTION, passed
