CORONAVIRUS UPDATE, County Facemask Policy updated County Administrator, Robert Wilson was present and said the Board last considered an update to the County Facemask Policy on January 3rd, and no action was taken. The current policy has been effective since September 2, 2021. The proposed update changes the phrasing visitors and employees “shall” wear masks to “are encouraged” to wear masks while in County buildings. Desi Fleming, Director of Public Health for Fargo Cass Public Health (FCPH) was present and said FCPH is seeing improving COVID situations within North Dakota. She said the daily positivity rate in Cass County is down to 8.99%. She said the CDC is going to put out updated information changing mask requirement metrics from case rates to hospitalization and serious illness parameters. She said there are currently 229 cases in Cass County. She said the County is still in the high transmission category; however, she suspects by next week will be in the substantial transmission category. MOTION, passed Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to amend the Cass County Facemask Policy as presented. Discussion: Mrs. Scherling asked if the updated policy being proposed will align with the updated CDC guidance. Ms. Fleming said the exact guidance is not known until it is released, she said the pandemic is not over and anything can change with variants. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 8. CASSELTON TAX INCENTIVE PROJECT FOR NORTH DAKOTA SOYBEAN PROCESSORS, LLC, fifteen-year PILOT application action tabled An application has been submitted by North Dakota Soybean Processors, LLC, a joint venture between CGB Enterprises, Inc., and Minnesota Soybean Processors, for a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) project located at S ½ Section 34 in Casselton Township to construct a soybean crushing facility. Mr. Wilson said the application proposes a fifteen-year PILOT incentive of $230,000 per year. He said of this $230,000, Cass County and the Central Cass School District would each receive $100,000, and the remaining taxing entities; Casselton Township, Soil Conservation District, and Water Resource District will receive a proportional percentage. Mr. Wilson said the Central Cass School District approved participating in the PILOT at their meeting on February 14th, 2022. He said related to this project, the Board agreed to participate with the North Dakota Department of Transportation to jointly provide up to $3 million in funds to construct two miles of roadway improvements leading to the proposed facility in anticipation for the 200 to 300 trucks per day hauling to and from the facility. This action was taken on December 6, 2021. Melissa Beach, City of Casselton Community and Economic Development Director was present and said work began on this project in December of 2020. She said it is a strong project that will bring benefits to Casselton such as high wage jobs, diversifies the market for farmers to sell soybeans locally, and grows the tax base. Ms. Beach said there have been over two dozen meetings and phone calls with local government entities and individuals concerning the project. President and CEO of the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation (GFMEDC), Joe Raso was present and discussed the economic impacts the soybean crushing facility will have on the region. He discussed the economic effects of the project in relation to jobs, payroll, and sales, Cass County government’s revenue impacts, and main street industry sales in Cass County. Mr. Raso said this project will have positive impacts to the local taxing bodies and business community. Eric Slater, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of CGB Enterprises was present and discussed the markets and divisions of Minnesota Soybean Processors and CGB Enterprises. He also discussed key areas of concern that have been heard from local residents; road impacts, bright lighting, loud noise, and environmental impacts. He said the building will be double insulated to retain heat and contain noise, the lighting outside the plant will be directed down, and the plant will utilize the latest technology to mitigate environmental impacts. He said there will be a truck staging area able to accommodate up to 70 trucks, with room for another 20 trucks inside the facility. He said they are going to do everything they can to be a good neighbor. Mr. Slater provided quotes from various businesses and entities who have worked with CGB Enterprises and spoke in favor of their organization and business practices. He reviewed key benefits of the facility for Casselton; new-value added market for North Dakota soybeans, a clean and modern plan to keep sound, lighting, and noise below regulations, the plant’s construction will include spending $100 million in the local area, a positive impact to land prices, housing values, wages, and soybean prices, North Dakota livestock will benefit from new supply of meal, 50-60 new jobs with above average wages and benefits will be created, a significant truck staging area for fast unload speed to minimize producer wait time and mitigate traffic congestion on local roads, and good jobs to help provide means for the community and school to grow and incentivize people to live in Casselton. Wes Bowen of Harvest Group, representing North Dakota Soybean Processors was present and said this $500 million project shows a large commitment to the local community and will have positive impacts. Mr. Peterson opened a public hearing to hear comments in favor, opposition, and neutral to the PILOT application. In-Favor Todd McMichael, Casselton resident and local farmer was present via Microsoft Teams and spoke in favor of the application as the soybean crushing facility would positively impact the price of soybeans and keep the soybean crushing business local. Mr. Steen said there are not a lot of farmers at the meeting speaking in favor of the application, he asked if Mr. McMichael had spoken with other local farmers. Mr. McMichael said he has spoken with a number of farmers in favor of the facility and said they may not be present today due to the ill weather and their inability to use Microsoft Teams. In-Opposition Greg Kemple, Casselton resident and business owner was present and spoke in opposition of the PILOT incentive. He said he is speaking on behalf of many Casselton residents who are afraid to speak up due to fear of repercussions. He discussed issues at the Central Cass School such as water damage and stains that are unable to be fixed due to lack of funding. He said no tax breaks should be given when the school cannot be fixed due to lack of funds. He said this company needs to pay their fair share of taxes to support Casselton. Mr. Kemple said Casselton is a small community built on agriculture, he said residents are in favor of the economic impacts of the facility and are against the location as it is close to town and will have ill sights and smells. Jon Watt, Casselton resident and farmer was present and spoke in opposition of the PILOT incentive. He is in favor of the facility coming to the area, and he opposes the fifteen-year exemption and the location of the facility. He said the project owners should pay their fair share of taxes. Ryan Rademacher, Chairman of Casselton Township was present via Microsoft Teams and spoke in opposition of the PILOT incentive. He said Casselton Township is in favor of the project and the business it will bring to the area. He said they are in opposition of the fifteen-year PILOT incentive and proposed a ten-year PILOT incentive with a graduated payment schedule. Sam Wagner, Casselton resident was present via Microsoft Teams and spoke in opposition of the PILOT incentive. He said his two main concerns with the incentive are that Casselton citizens were not informed of the project and the impacts the incentive has to the Central Cass School District. He said there was not transparent information about the project and the citizens of Casselton did not get proper notification of the project. Mr. Wagner said he was at the Central Cass School Board meeting and no one was able to give public comment on the PILOT incentive. He said the Central Cass School needs funds to make updates and fix damages to the school and they are unable to do so due to lack of funds. He said this incentive should not be granted to provide the school district with additional funds they need. Mr. Peterson said realistically, the full assessment value of the facility will not be equal to the amount that the facility was built for, and therefore, will be a decreased value than the numbers being discussed today. He said the facility will still be a great influx on the property tax roll, and he believes the largest influx of cash from this project will come from its production, sales tax, and employment. Scott Wagner, Casselton resident was present via Microsoft Teams and spoke in opposition of the PILOT incentive. He said he opposes the project as the incentive will take away funds from the Central Cass School District, they need to make improvements to the school. He said this project will also increase the property taxes and force people out of their homes in Casselton because they cannot afford the taxes. Neutral Stu Letcher, Executive Vice President of the North Dakota Grain Dealers Association was present and spoke as neutral to the PILOT incentive. He said his organization represents commercial grain industry business including grain elevators and processors, and they are not against the project. He said the Association is not in favor of the fifteen-year incentive as other projects in the agricultural sector have received a five or ten-year PILOT. He said he would like the Commission to take this into consideration and give a lesser incentive to be equal to other businesses and projects. Morgan Forness, Central Cass Schools Superintendent was present and spoke as neutral to the PILOT incentive. He said he would like to make clarifications to points brough up earlier in the discussion. He said the Central School Board requires a request before the meeting if anyone would like to speak on a topic at an upcoming meeting. He said this process is followed for every meeting and topic. He said schools are funded two ways- a general fund levy and a building fund levy. He said Central Cass Public School does not have a building fund levy and is one of few school districts in the state that does not have one. He said as a result of this, building improvement funding needs to come from the general fund. Mr. Forness said there was a referendum put forward to fund building improvements, which was voted on and did not pass. He said there were only about 300 people who voted. He said the School Board has been in communication and discussions as this project has progressed and the School Board voted to support the PILOT application, as historically the Board has never denied an incentive application. He said he believes this shows the Boards intention to support a growing community. He said supporting the incentive projects have proven to benefit the school district in the past, for example, Tharaldson Ethanol- a local ethanol plant that was granted a PILOT incentive in Casselton, donated $1 million to the Central Cass School District. Kevin Carl, Agricultural business owner in Arthur and resident of Highland Park was present and spoke as neutral to the PILOT incentive. He said he is in support of the project and opposes the tax incentive as it gives an unfair advantage and sets an unwanted precedent for future projects. Alex Richard, representative of Maple River Grain and Agronomy, LLC was present and spoke as neutral to the PILOT incentive. He said they are in favor of the project and oppose the fifteen-year incentive as it creates an unfair advantage compared to other incentives that have been granted for only five or ten years. Brandy Pyle, North Dakota State Representative for District 22 and Casselton resident was present and spoke as neutral to the PILOT incentive. She said she believes in the value of communication and has been in contact with stakeholders of the political subdivisions, project owners, and concerned citizens to organize a meeting to allow for dialogue to discuss the project tomorrow morning and eliminate the disconnect between the project owners and concerned citizens. Mark Weber, North Dakota Senator from Casselton was present and spoke as neutral to the PILOT application. He said he understands the ownership group has already purchased the land for the project. He said tax incentives are used to incentivize and draw businesses and projects to the area. He said it seems the project will go forward with or without the incentive and the current proposal leaves a fair amount of money on the table for the County and School Board. He said he agrees with others who have spoken today for a lower year PILOT incentive. Hearing no further comments, Mr. Peterson closed the public hearing. Mrs. Scherling clarified, the County does not control the location or zoning of the project. Jason Benson, County Engineer was present via Microsoft Teams and said the project is located in the City of Casselton’s extra-territorial area, and therefore is under the zoning jurisdiction of the City of Casselton. Mrs. Scherling said since the School Board voted to participate in the incentive, what will happen to the incentive if this Board decides to deny or not participate in the application. Tracy Peters, Chief Deputy Attorney for the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office was present and said if the Board chooses not to participate, the PILOT would not be effective. Mrs. Scherling asked what would happen if the Board approved an incentive that is different from the incentive approved by the School Board. Ms. Peters said she is still investigating this outcome, she said she knows there is room for negotiating the proposal. She presumes if this Board approved something different from the School Board, the application would need to go back to the School Board for approval of the new incentive. Mrs. Scherling said she has had many phone calls and emails related to this incentive and a majority of the people she spoke with were in favor and excited for the project, they opposed the incentive and wanted the amount of taxes being paid to be fair. She said it needs to be considered again that the Board has already committed funds for road improvements to the facility. She said as the PILOT application is presented today, she cannot support it. Mr. Steen said there have been suggestions today to consider a lesser incentive and he is interested in considering this alternative. He asked if it is a possibility for the Board to table action on the application until after the meeting Ms. Pyle mentioned earlier in the meeting takes place and more discussion is had with the concerned citizens. Ms. Peters said it is an option for the Board to table action on the application until the next meeting. MOTION, passed Mr. Steen moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to table action in the request for a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) incentive submitted by North Dakota Soybean Processors, LLC to construct a soybean crushing facility for up to fifteen years until the Boards next meeting on March 7, 2022. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 9. ABATEMENT HEARINGS Yoginivas, LLC Paul Fracassi, County Tax Director of Equalization was present to discuss an abatement application submitted by Yoginivas, LLC for a property located at 1407 35th Street South in Fargo, commonly known as Travelodge. The applicant requested a reduction in value for the year 2021 from $1,507,100 ($23,548 per room) to $690,000 ($10,781 per room). The Fargo Assessment Office and Fargo City Commission denied the abatement application. Mr. Fracassi supports the comparable sales supplied by the Fargo Assessment Office to support the current valuation of the property as their cost approach is equitable amongst similar competing properties. Gurunivas, LLC An abatement application was submitted by Gurunivas, LLC for a property located at 1415 35th Street South in Fargo, commonly known as Quality Suites. The applicant requested a reduction in value for the year 2021 from $1,866,600 ($28,282 per room) to $640,000 ($9,697 per room). Mr. Fracassi said an on-site review of the property was completed by the Fargo Assessment Office on November 11, 2021, which found water damage and deferred maintenance that was not accounted for when the value was determined. He said for this reason the Fargo Assessment Office recommended and the Fargo City Commission approved a reduction in value from $1,866,600 to $1,330,000. Mr. Fracassi said he believes the reduction is warranted based on the conclusions provided by the Fargo Assessment Office. David T. Tibbals, representing Yoginivas, LLC and Gurunivas, LLC, from Fredrickson and Byron, PA was present and said Yoginivas and Gurunivas are of the same ownership and are very similar properties. He said the City of Fargo approved a reduction in the value for Yoginivas as there was water damage and deferred maintenance. Mr. Tibbals said he is requesting the same reduction percent that was given to Yoginivas be applied to Gurunivas as the hotels are similar. He said one was built in 1987 and other in 1988, one has 64 rooms the other has 66, and the room rates differ by $5. Mr. Steen asked if the water damage and deferred maintenance that was found in the Yoginivas property could also be found in the Gurunivas property. Mr. Tibbles said from the owner’s perspective, there is a similar amount of deferred maintenance at both properties and the appraisal done on the properties supported the same amount of deferred maintenance. Paramount Hotel, LTD Abatement applications were submitted by Paramount Hotel LTD for a property located at 1635 42nd Street South in Fargo, commonly known as Delta Hotel. The applicant requested a reduction in values for the year 2019 from $16,408,000 to $10,738,765, for the year 2020 from $16,408,000 to $10,141,323, and for the year 2021 from $13,946,800 to $7,357,388. The Fargo Assessment Office and Fargo City Commission denied the abatement applications. Mr. Fracassi said he reviewed the income approach submitted by the applicant and noted it failed to include any food and beverage income, which significantly deflated the income valuation. He said he believes the sales and cost analysis provided by the Fargo Assessment Office demonstrated the assessed value of the property is a fair and equitable representation of value for all three years. Emerald Hospitality, LLC Abatement applications were submitted by Emerald Hospitality, LLC for a property located at 4041 17th Avenue South in Fargo, commonly known as Candlewood Suites. The applicant requested a reduction in values for the year 2019 from $5,837,000 to $3,610,000, for the year 2020 from $5,837,000 to $3,426,215, and for the year 2021 from $4,961,500 to $2,757,217. The Fargo Assessment Office and Fargo City Commission denied the abatement applications. Mr. Fracassi said he reviewed the income analysis submitted by the applicant and said it is property specific and does not reflect how similar properties would produce. He said no consideration was given to the cost approach or sales approach. Mr. Fracassi said he believes the sales and cost analysis provided by the Fargo Assessment Office support a fair and equitable representation of the value for all three years. David T. Tibbals, also representing Paramount Hotel, LTD and Emerald Hospital, LLC said he would like the Commission to consider the three different types of analysis that are accepted for the valuation process: cost, sales, and income. He discussed the three types. Mr. Tibbals said all three of types of analysis were presented for both Paramount Hotel and Emerald Hospitality for all three years being requested. The cost and sales analysis were provided by the Fargo Assessors Office and the income analysis was provided by the applicant. Mr. Tibbals presented an alternative option to the appraisal to use a weighted average value that takes into account all three analyses using various weights. Mrs. Scherling asked if the income analysis is affected by the management of a property, factors such as: vacancy rate, management quality, and staffing. Mr. Tibbals said ultimately these factors would result in a different value of the property. He said you account for the factors by evaluating if the data is property specific or market specific. Mr. Peterson said his struggle with using an income-based analysis is that the value can change based on how well or bad the business is doing. MOTION, passed Mr. Steen moved and Mrs. Scherling seconded to retain the current values for abatements 4509, 4510, 4511, 4512, 4513, 4514, and 4515. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. MOTION, passed Mrs. Scherling moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to correct the 2021 value for abatement 4516 from $1,866,600 to $1,330,000 submitted by Gurunivas, LLC. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. Fargo My Place, LLC An abatement application was submitted by Fargo My Place, LLC for a property located at 2555 55th Street South in Fargo. The applicant requested a reduction in value for the 2019 taxable year from $2,896,000 to $1,710,000. The Fargo Assessment Office and Fargo City Commission denied the abatement application. Mr. Fracassi said the applicant supplied an income analysis that was property specific and does not reflect how similar properties would produce. He said the sales and cost analysis provided by the Fargo Assessment Office supports a fair and equitable value. Christopher Stafford representing Fargo My Place, LLC from Fremstad Law Firm was present via Microsoft Teams and said the question that needs to be addressed today is whether the taxpayer’s assessment was individually higher than what a willing buyer or seller would accept. He noted that all five abatements being considered by the Commission today are hotels and this may indicate a systemic problem, however, he is only concerned about the current property, My Place, being considered individually. Mr. Safford said the applicant supplied an income approach and is asking the Board to consider all three of the approaches provided as the others provide information not available to the applicant. He said the indication of value the applicant came up with is $1,710,000 and the value the applicant is requesting the 2019 value be lowered to. MOTION, passed Mr. Kapitan moved and Mrs. Scherling seconded to retain the 2019 value of $2,896,000 on abatement application 4517 submitted by Fargo My Place, LLC. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 10. COMMISSION POLICY MANUAL, Section 4.00 amended, and Wyatt Kram appointed to the Reile’s Acres Planning and Zoning Board as the ET representative Mr. Wilson said the Commission Office received a vacancy from the City of Reile’s Acres Planning and Zoning Board extra-territorial (ET) jurisdiction representative, Robert Bohmert. The Commission is responsible for appointing City Planning and Zoning Board ET representatives. Mr. Wilson said an application was received soon after to fill the position from Wyatt Kram, who is highly motivated and willing to serve on the Board. MOTION, passed Mr. Kapitan moved and Mrs. Scherling seconded to amend Commission Policy Manual Section 4.00, Advisory Boards and appoint Wyatt Kram to the Reile’s Acres City Planning and Zoning Board from the extra-territorial jurisdiction for an unexpired term ending July 1, 2024. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 11. VOUCHERS, Approved MOTION, passed Mr. Kapitan moved and Mr. Steen seconded to approve Voucher No. 328752 through Voucher No. 329031 and Electronic Payments 11763 through 11865 for a total of $1,814,828.22. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 12.
