CONSENT AGENDA ENDS
Moved by Laylin seconded by Magsamen that the REQUEST FOR PURCHASE OF CAPITAL EQUIPMENT submitted by Kim Veeder, Information Technology Director, be approved and direct the Chair to sign for same: to purchase the operating system and the SQL database for 2,682.84 from CDW-G. Motion carried.
Moved by Magsamen, seconded by Schwartz to direct the County Auditor to advertise for a public hearing to be held at 9:05 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2018 in Board Room 201 of the Black Hawk County Courthouse, 316 E. 5th Street, Waterloo, Iowa on the proposed Ordinance No. 142, Chapter 10.05.040 amending Ordinance No. 95. The Black Hawk County, Iowa Parking Lot Ordinance, adopted May 9, 2006. Motion carried.
Moved by Magsamen, seconded by Laylin that the REVISION to the Black Hawk County Emergency Action Program effective for October 23, 2018 be approved as recommended by the Emergency Action Planning Committee. Magsamen said the changes were mostly minor language changes, updating exit routes and identifying where fire alarms, exits and safe rooms are. Rory Geving, Superintendent of Maintenance said the old program is very outdated and didn’t clearly identify where pull stations, fire extinguishers and other items are located. Some sections were removed to condense and simplify the program and make it more user friendly. Once adopted and sent to the departments electronically, we will ask departments to remove the old program in the red book covers. We have received some nice examples for other counties from Lorie Glover with Emergency Management and will work with a printing company to get it formatted and printed. Motion carried.
Moved by Schwartz, seconded by Laylin that the APPOINTMENT of Allen Sage to the Black Hawk County Planning & Zoning Board be approved, effective October 23, 2018. Motion carried.
Schwartz moved the following resolution seconded by Magsamen.
BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED that the DISPOSAL of property at the intersection of Gilbertville and Indian Creek Roads be gifted to the Poyner Cemetery Association and be approved as recommended by Catherine Nicholas, County Engineer. Nicholas said this parcel is near the Poyner Cemetery. Necessary steps to survey the land were completed this spring at a cost of $1,500 for the survey with the result of an appraisal value of $1,600. Letters were then sent to neighboring land owners to see if anyone was interested in purchasing the .25 acre parcel for $3,100. One comment received but no offers to purchase. Poyner Township Trustee Gail Mueller said it would allow them to add at least one more burial on each row. There is a lot of junk buried under an old fence line so we wouldn’t be able to go much further. The rest would be used for parking during burials and also a sign would be placed at the point.
AYES: Laylin, Little, Magsamen, Schwartz.
NAYS: None.
ABSENT: White Resolution adopted.
Discussion occurred regarding solar opportunities for Black Hawk County facilities with guest speaker Eagle Point Solar as recommended by the Alternative Energy Committee. Rory Geving, Superintendent of Maintenance said that in 2016 an Alternative Energy Committee was established and they have met three or four times to discuss opportunities available for alternative energy options for our facilities. The committee has worked with the University of Northern Iowa Staff, Eagle Point Solar and Tri-City Electric. Kent Kraus, Solar Energy Consultant with Eagle Point Solar in Dubuque said they checked out 16 meters on county facilities along with information from MidAmerican Energy. They found that seven meters would be feasible to build solar by performing detailed site assessment measurements, rooftops, rooftop conditions and point of connections. The rooftop panels collect sunlight as direct current (DC) and inverters convert the DC to alternating current (AC). The product has a 25 year warranty with an expected life of 40 years. Extra energy is produced on the sunny days to be used when the sun isn’t shining. One example is the Engineer’s Longfellow Shop that would have 152 solar panels and two inverters at a cost of $90,577. It is estimated that it will pay itself off in about 14 years with 11 years of warranty remaining and a net cash gain of nearly $110,000. Besides the cash savings, the environmental impact would be a reduced carbon footprint. All seven facilities-three buildings at the Longfellow Shop, Conservation Headquarters, Conservation Mechanic Shop, Elk Run Shop and Hartman Reserve would cost $310,720. The cash gain for all seven over the 25 years is estimated to be $317,000. Kraus described funding methods available through the company to indirectly gain access to energy tax credits that wouldn’t be available directly to the county. Little and Schwartz said they were interested in the county’s main facilities of the Jail, Courthouse and Pinecrest. Kraus said unfortunately there isn’t enough roof space on those facilities. Eric Giddens, Energy Education & Outreach Coordinator with the University of Northern Iowa attested to the expertise and professionalism of Eagle Point. They have a robust process and are super diligent while conforming to best practices and industry standards. This is a move in the right direction. Sheriff Tony Thompson mentioned the Range and the Impound building. Magsamen said Finance Director Susan Deaton would crunch the numbers and the board will take this up as a budget matter next year.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD: Magsamen said the Honor Flight would arrive back at the airport after 9:30 tonight.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.
