Motion carried.
At the invitation of the Board of Supervisors, Chuck Meyers from MidAmerican Energy spoke and answered questions on MidAmerican’s interactions with solar energy. Meyers said that 51.4% of energy delivered by MidAmerican in 2018 came from renewable sources, mostly wind, and their goal is to use 100% renewable sources by 2021. Little asked about the rate paid by the county. Meyers said that MidAmerican has four rates, three of which the county qualifies for, and customers pay the lowest rate they qualify for. He said that if the county installed solar panels for different buildings, it would submit an application for each building to show that requirements are met, and steps would be taken to be sure the grid could handle any energy sent to it by a county facility. He said solar projects usually have a 12-14 year payback period.
Schwartz asked if MidAmerican has plans to retire coal-fired plants. Meyers said that they are needed as backup for energy sources that can be interrupted. Schwartz said that as long as they are used it is a misnomer to say that 100% of energy is from renewable sources. He thanked MidAmerican for their work in cleaning up storm damage from the night before. Laylin asked about the requirement that owners are responsible for generation distribution and compliance of solar energy. Meyers said that owners need to have a professional engineer provide drawings to MidAmerican, to show that the system meets code, and otherwise it can’t connect to the grid.
Trelka said that he likes diversified energy sources, but he has concerns about renewable energy regarding disposal of units, like solar panels and windmill blades, after their useful life, and the use of components in solar panels that come from China. He felt the Board needed to further educate itself. Laylin said that technology changes rapidly, and asked Geving what would happen if the solar technology is obsolete in 20 years. Geving said that the warranty is for 25 years, so the technology will be in use that long, and the life expectancy is reportedly 40 years, although he doesn’t have verification of that. Little asked if there is an American company that provides the necessary products. Geving said he would check. Laylin asked if the estimate Geving gave at the September 3 meeting of $1.2 million for eight county buildings included interconnection fees. Geving said it includes the fees at $120 per site per year, and the only amount not factored in is an additional warranty amount to match the inverter warranty period to the panel warranty period. Meyers said that the cost of any upgrades by MidAmerican, which are paid by the facility owners, is not included either. Laylin said rate changes aren’t either. Meyers said current rates should be good for 15 years.
Tyler Olson of SiteGen Solar said that solar significantly reduces a facility’s operating cost, besides using clean power. He said it locks the electric rate in for 25 years. He said his company uses American-made products in projects such as that at the Cedar Rapids airport.
Laylin asked Geving if he would have additional answers next week. Geving said he would.
The Board of Supervisors discussed the LUMP SUM COMPENSATIONS for Helen Steffen and Billie Jo Heth for their time working a dual position as interim Co-Finance Directors in the amounts recommended by County Auditor Grant Veeder ($1,354.50 for Heth, $748.20 for Steffen). Laylin said she wanted to defer action to try to determine a more fair amount, given the amount and difficulty of the work performed. She said that current policies should be change to better anticipate this situation. Trelka and Schwartz said they also felt the amounts were too low. Little asked Veeder to provide different amounts for the Board to consider in a week. Veeder explained how he, Steffen and Heth arrived at the figures presented, and asked Board members to provide any modifications they thought appropriate.
The Board of Supervisors discussed applications for funding from the county. Laylin presented a draft of a potential webpage that describes eligibility and requirements and links to an application. Little said that it should say that county funds are not available to pay salaries, just programs and capital projects. Schwartz said that he likes the wording that says programs and capital are prioritized, but leaves the door open in case an agency could justify using funds for salaries. Little said that the page should say that awards are subject to the availability of funding. The Board discussed whether applicants should be limited to non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporations. Laylin said that all the providers involved with the Metro Funders group require that status. Little asked that any desired changes be submitted.
ANY REPORTS OR INFORMATION FROM THE BOARD. Trelka said that the situation addressed by a resident of Dewar in recent public comments has been improved. Laylin said that the Iowa County Information Technology group that will assess Black Hawk County IT will attend the September 24 meeting to see what the Board expects.
On motion and vote the meeting adjourned.

Maggie Burger of Speer Financial, the county’s bond advisers, discussed a proposed bond issuance for the Solid Waste Management Commission (SWMC) and the E911 Board. She said that these entities would pay all the costs and debt service to the county, which will merely act as a pass-through agent. She said scheduling both bond sales together would save issuance costs, that the SWMC issue would be $6 million repaid over five years, and the E911 issue would be $2.6 million repaid over ten years. She presented a proposed timetable that was based on a bond sale date of October 29. Little said that he is a member of the SWMC Board, and he didn’t think that board would be ready for a presentation from Speer until October. Burger said there is flexibility in the schedule, but the sale should be before Thanksgiving, because rates for bond sales typically go up after that. She said revenue sharing agreements need to be concluded between the county and the two entities, and that the county will need to amend its budget to show this unanticipated income and expense. Little said that the Board needs to have discussion with E911 on paying the county to service their debt.
Solid Waste Management Administrator John Foster discussed SWMC’s request for bonding. He described the mission and activities of his agency, and said that while the current landfill cell has three years of capacity, it is time to plan for the next cell, which will cost $12 million. The first phase will be covered by the $6 million proposed bond issue. He explained the complex construction of landfill cells, accounting for their high cost.
RECEIVE PROJECT UPDATES FROM DEPARTMENT HEADS/ELECTED OFFICIALS. County Engineer Cathy Nicholas said her crews are still hauling mile rock for gravel roads, and when five more miles is rocked in each district, they will have completed the 15-mile plan for each. She said the first of three layers of asphalt is being laid on Cedar Wapsi Road, and that there has been no work recently on the Cedar Wapsi Road bridge.
Moved by Trelka, seconded by White that the MINUTES of the Board Meeting held August 20, 2019 be and are hereby approved as submitted. Motion carried.

Little asked County Treasurer Rita Schmidt why so many suspensions were on the agenda. Schmidt said that some individuals that used to qualify for suspension under Department of Human Services guidelines no longer so qualify, so they have filled out the detailed application provided by Schmidt’s office, and have proven to her satisfaction that they should continue to have their taxes suspended, with the understanding that upon the death of the owner or the sale of the property the taxes will be paid.
