PUBLIC COMMENT Mr. Steen asked for public comment.

He said there is no scientific basis to support capturing the carbon from ethanol plants will have a positive impact on the environment. He said there are other pipelines in place already that will almost crisscross each other and he is fearful a lot of money is being spent on pipelines. Hearing no further public comment, Mr. Steen moved on to the regular agenda items. 7.

The Project will be owned and operated by Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Foundation, a North Dakota nonprofit corporation. The amount of the proposed bonds issued will not exceed $2,550,000. Chairman Steen opened the public hearing for comments and hearing none, closed the public hearing. MOTION, passed Mr. Kapitan moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to adopt Resolution #2022-05, a resolution approving the Issuance of Bonds by the City of Frontier, North Dakota, on behalf of Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Foundation under the Municipal Industrial Development Act and authorize the execution of an agreement. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 8. SUMMIT CARBON SOLUTIONS CARBON DIOXIDE PIPELINE PROJECT, Introduction Summit Carbon Solutions Safety Environmental Manager, Jay Volk, was present to discuss a project that would capture carbon dioxide at 31 ethanol plants, carry the carbon capture through a 2,000-mile-long pipeline through North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, and Nebraska, to an injection site in North Dakota where it would be permanently stored in deep underground geologic formations. He said the project is under contract with 32 ethanol plants today with plans to transport 8.9 million tons of carbon and the potential with the proposed pipeline to transport 20 million tons. 303.82 miles of the pipeline will be in North Dakota with 20.74 miles being in Cass County. Mr. Volk said the project would have range in size of the pipeline from 6 inches to 24 inches in the main line. Mr. Volk said if you take three pounds of corn-one pound of output is ethanol, one pound of output is dried distillers grain, and the remaining pound is carbon emission. He said this project would take the carbon out of the environment and help stabilize the ethanol market thus also maintaining corn prices. He said North Dakota has ideal geology for storing carbon. Mr. Volk said the project capital investment is $4.5 billion with over $360 million in North Dakota. Mrs. Scherling asked if the pipeline is explosive or deadly if the carbon escapes. Mr. Volk said yes, the carbon would turn into a gas, he said safety valves would be put in segments to block off flow in the event of an escape. He said Summit Carbon Solutions is exceeding safety standards to reduce safety risks including extra weld capacity, digging the pipeline further into the ground, and having a well monitored detection and status systems. Mrs. Scherling asked how much carbon can be stored in the storage area in North Dakota. Mr. Volk said the storage area has over 250 billion metric tons of storage potential, a virtually infinite amount as North Dakota has ideal geological formations for carbon storage. Mrs. Scherling asked how Summit Carbon Solutions will determine the value of easements needed to complete the project. Mr. Volk said negotiations are started at 115% of the land cost and an upfront three-year disturbance payment with 100% disturbance and productivity cost on the land in year one, 80% in year two, and 60% in year three. Mrs. Scherling asked if farmland can still be used and farmed over the top of the pipeline. Mr. Volk said the land can still be farmed; however, no structures can be built. Mrs. Scherling said much of Cass County is tiled, she asked how this will be handled. Mr. Volk said Summit has contracted with a drain tiling company to complete work to repair and warranty drain tile and irrigation work during and after the project. Mr. Steen asked if the area is the same land and formations used for oil drilling. Mr. Volk said the formations are non-oil bearing. Mr. Steen asked if the carbon deposited into the geological formation will remain in the ground forever. Mr. Volk said yes, once injected, the carbon will mineralize over a long period of time and disperse. Mr. Peterson asked if the project is expandable. Mr. Volk said the storage capacity in the storage area is 250 billion tons and the pipeline is predicted to carry 12 million tons per year. He said there is room for potential growth with the permitting and pipeline being proposed. Mr. Steen asked what the benefit of the carbon storage is to North Dakota. Mr. Volk said the benefit is to help the ethanol industry that is large in North Dakota and the Midwest, along with decreasing the carbon dioxide being emitted into the air and decreases the ethanol carbon index score. He said the project will be relevant and valuable for many years. 9. JAIL, US Marshals Service Modification of Intergovernmental Agreement approved Cass County Jail Administrator, Captain Andy Frobig was present and said the US Marshall Service has proposed an addendum to the existing contract for services. He said the Jail is already compliant with nearly all the proposed changes related to medical services, pregnant or post-partum prisoners, video teleconferencing, body camera information requests, and restricting housing and suicide prevention. Mr. Frobig said the only changes that needs to be implemented relates to Inmate voting education and access to which the Jail will accommodate. He said the voting requirements will not require much change or additional workload, simply giving inmates information and access to voting. Mr. Frobig said the addendum has been reviewed and approved by the Cass County State’s Attorney’s Office. MOTION, passed Mr. Peterson moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to approve the addendum to the US Department of Justice United States Marshals Service contract as presented. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 10. INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY, Firewall purchase approved Information Technology Director, Bob Henderson was present and discussed the purchase of two firewalls to secure the County building network. In 2021 the County was awarded a grant from the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services (NDDES) to provide phishing training and a more secure connection to the County building network. Mr. Henderson said the County has already completed and been reimbursed for the phishing training, and funds from the grant are left over and expired December 31, 2021. He said he worked with the NDDES to get an extension of the grant to purchase firewalls to secure the building network by August of 2022. Mr. Henderson said the request today is to approve the nonbudgeted item of two firewalls in the amount of $22,723 to be reimbursed by NDDES grant funds. Mr. Breitling said there is a subscription fee as part of the quoted cost for three years, he asked if the County would need to continue the subscription after the initial three-year period. Mr. Henderson said yes, the County would need to continue paying the subscription fee each year out of the Buildings and Grounds budget and is now at a cost of approximately $1,200. Mr. Wilson said there is a great amount of technology and remote control to many of the County building services and it is important to ensure this network is secure. MOTION, passed Mrs. Scherling moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to approve the purchase of two Palo Alto Firewalls with a three-year subscription from High Point Networks in the amount of $22,723 to be reimbursed by North Dakota Department of Emergency Services grant funds. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 11. FARGO NATIONAL CEMETERY Jason Hicks, Commander for the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard was present to discuss opportunities near the Fargo National Cemetery. Mr. Hicks said the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard was created as a group to represent all local Veteran Groups to adequately handle honor guard duties. He said they are established as a non-profit 501(c)3 orginization that can raise money and accept government donations. He said their goal is to provide all veterans with proper military honors. Mr. Hicks said currently at the Fargo National Cemetery there is a small pagoda structure to hold ceremonies and limited parking. The Fargo National Cemetery is owned and operated by the US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Mr. Hicks said the VA requires a National Cemetery to be larger than 100 acres to have a building and the Fargo National Cemetery currently has five acres. He said the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard would like to purchase land next to the Fargo National Cemetery to construct a parking lot and building to hold ceremonies and provide a space for loved ones to gather. Mr. Hicks said the VA has strict guidelines for ceremonies and only allows 20 minutes per ceremony. He said they do not allow other cultural ceremonies such as Native American ceremonies. He said the Honor Guard would like to see the property become a destination with landscape features, a spot for Native American ceremonies to be held, donor recognition, and fundraising memorial benches. Mr. Hicks said the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard has been in contact with the nearby property owner, Jacob Gust, who is willing to sell five acres of land to locate the building and parking lot; however, Mr. Gust has a stipulation that a governmental entity must be involved to ensure the property is always well taken care of in the event the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard does not have the resources to keep the property maintained. Mr. Hicks said the VA has contacted Mr. Gust to purchase his additional land of approximately 32 acres to expand the Fargo National Cemetery. Mr. Hicks said the discussion today is to purchase three to five acres of land from Mr. Gust, donate the land to the County, and the County lease the land to Fargo Memorial Honor Guard. He said this would fulfil Mr. Hick’s request and allow the Honor Guard to fill their needs. Mrs. Scherling asked what the role of the federal government is in this situation. Mr. Hicks said the VA has said they will only construct a building if there are over 100 acres and the Honor Guard has worked with Senator Hoeven’s Office, however, no federal assistance has come through. Mrs. Scherling asked how state cemeteries are funded. Mr. Hicks said state cemeteries are fully funded through the state, Fargo National Cemetery is a national cemetery not a state cemetery. He said the Honor Guard would get donations to construct the building privately. Mr. Peterson said he supports the needs and the good the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard does for the community. He said he struggles with the process the Honor Guard is using to fill their needs, he said proper channels need to be used to get the facility built. He said additional work needs to be done with the state and national government. Mr. Peterson said if the County agrees to the donation and lease, the County is agreeing to eventually maintain a federal cemetery which is not a responsibility of the County or County taxpayers. He said the project is needed and needs to be done properly. Property owner near the Fargo National Cemetery, Jacob Gust, was present and said he is in support of the proposed project and believes it is needed, however, he said he is concerned that someday the Fargo Memorial Honor Guard will not have the resources to continue maintaining the property. He said he has tried to discuss his concerns with the VA and they will not discuss the details of what will go on the property after they purchase it. Mr. Gust said he is willing to sell the property to the Honor Guard and deed the property directly to the County. Mr. Steen said it seems that all parties involved are supportive of the project and a way forward needs to be identified that everyone is satisfied with. He suggested County Administrator, Robert Wilson be the point of contact for the County on this project going forward. 12. FLOOD CONTROL, State Water Commission reimbursement request approved For consideration today is the 123rd request for eligible expenses incurred from February 1, 2022 to February 28, 2022, for local matching share requirements outlined by House Bill 1020 for the Fargo-Moorhead Metropolitan Area Risk Management Project. The request is for land purchase and relocation assistance for homeowners living in areas of the Diversion project, environmental monitoring easement, Drain 27 directional bore, pay application #8 for Belmont Flood Risk Management Project phase 2, electrical pay application #5 for Riverwood Flood Management project flood mitigation, and pay application #19 for WWTF Phase 2B expansion storm water portion. MOTION, passed Mr. Breitling moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to authorize the Chair to sign reimbursement request #123 in the amount of $3,945,477.58 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. 13. VOUCHERS, Approved MOTION, passed Mr. Peterson moved and Mr. Breitling seconded to approve Voucher No. 329712 through Voucher No. 329937 and Electronic Payments 11960 through 12069 for a total of $1,404,338.33. On roll call vote, the motion carried unanimously. 14. MEETING UPDATES, Committee reports Commissioners and staff reported on meetings they have attended or will be attending in the upcoming weeks. Ms. Madrigga said Cass County revived two awards from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA); a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial reporting for fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 and the GFOA’s Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting. 15. CORRESPONDENCE, Received and filed MOTION, passed Mr. Breitling moved and Mr. Kapitan seconded to receive and file correspondence outlined by the secretary as follows: Motion carried. - Letter from North Dakota Water Resource Districts Association notifying that their 2022 Joint Summer Water Meeting and Executive Briefing is scheduled for July 11 to July 13 at the Holiday Inn in Fargo. - Information from the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corporation’s Growth Initiative Fund for fiscal year 2021 and activity reports detailing administrative activity, funding activity, loan approvals, loan funding, and grants. 16.
