The claims listing was presented for approval. Robert Hiivala, Auditor/Treasurer, drew attention to the Bolton & Menk, Inc. claims on Page 39 of the Claims Listing. Hiivala said they are the engineers who worked on Joint Ditch 14. Since the Joint Ditch Board has not yet taken action to accept that allocation, Hiivala requested that these bills be removed from the claims listing. Borrell moved to remove the Bolton & Menk, Inc. bills from the claims listing, seconded by Daleiden. The motion carried 5-0.
Daleiden moved to approve the claims as listed in the abstract, seconded by Borrell, for a total of $624,533.64, with 258 vendors and 441 transactions, with the exception of Bolton & Menk, Inc. in the amount of $10,459.59. The motion carried unanimously.
A Committee Of The Whole Meeting was held 12-05-14. Daleiden summarized the minutes. Those present discussed alternative uses for the Compost Facility (Facility). Since the majority of the current Board was not serving when the Facility opened, they felt it would be beneficial to tour the site and discuss alternative uses for the building and equipment. Representatives from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) also indicated interest in reviewing the Facility to determine any potential uses. Those present discussed new rules for Source Separated Organic Materials Composting (SSOMC). No decisions were made at the Committee meeting, as the purpose was to provide information to the Board. Some questions remain regarding whether the County is obligated to pay back the State grant awarded when the Facility was built. Borrell moved to approve the 12-05-14 Committee Of The Whole Minutes, seconded by Potter.
Potter said he had asked Greg Kryzer, Attorney III, to provide a definitive answer from the Minnesota Management and Budget Department (MMB) that the County is not obligated to repay the Compost Facility grant (as mentioned on Page 1, Paragraph 3, Line 4 of the Minutes). Potter said he would like the MMB statement in writing. He said Sig Scheurle, Solid Waste Planning Director with the MPCA, indicated the grant may not have been forgiven. Potter would like clarification on this issue.
Sawatzke said the last full paragraph on Page 2 of the minutes, Line 5, should be changed to read “heavy organic material.”
The motion to approve the Minutes, as amended, carried 5-0. The 12-05-14 Committee Of The Whole Minutes follow:
I. Meeting with Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) Officials To Discuss Alternative Uses For The Compost Facility.
Sig Scheurle, MPCA Solid Waste Planning Director, said he requested a tour of the Compost Facility (Facility). Greg Kryzer, Wright County Attorney III, told him that County Board members and County staff may have questions for them about the Solid Waste Capital Assistance Program, the grant agreement, and the sale of equipment from the Facility. Scheurle said Mike Mondloch, MPCA Solid Waste Facility Permitting Supervisor, can answer questions regarding groundwater, and Emily Barker, MPCA Solid Waste Planner, can answer questions related to source separated organic materials composting (SSOMC).
Kryzer said he attended the 11-18-14 MPCA Citizens’ Board meeting. They approved the new SSOMC rules, which the County was following at the Facility before it closed. Given that new development, Kryzer said he thought a primer on the rules would be appropriate since the County Board is looking at options for the Facility and anticipated developments going forward.
Kryzer said he and Scheurle have discussed the bonding for the Facility that was done by the State, and what the County’s potential obligation may be to repay it. This matter needs more research with the Minnesota Management and Budget Department (MMB). Kryzer said they have letters from the previous organization, the Office of Environmental Assistance (OEA), that say the County would not be obligated to pay the bond back. However, the MMB has a different interpretation. The legal aspects of this situation must be clarified.
Scheurle said the MPCA adopted a new landfill abatement plan in 2010 for the Twin Cities Metro Area. The plan set higher goals for recycling and the diversion of organic material from the waste stream. The waste stream may not necessarily be composting, but rather, diversion of food waste to swine feeding and animal food manufacturing. All seven Metro Counties have adopted the new rules in their comprehensive plans. Metro Counties requested better rules for SSOMC.
Barker said it has been a four-year or more process to develop the new SSOMC rules. The Citizens’ Board has approved the language. It is now being reviewed. The new rules will become official about mid-
January 2015. It is an attempt to acknowledge that the majority of composting is no longer municipal solid waste (MSW) composting. The considerations are different. The waste generators (whether residents or institutions) are separating the material from the beginning, so there is much less hazardous material coming in. The goal was to create rules that reflect the actual practices. The rules created two new aspects of composting:
1) Small Site Composting: A Non-permitted designation for community gardens, universities, and small businesses that want to do composting on site (but not backyard or residential composting).
Barker said these sites were operating in a gray zone between residential, back-yard composting and large MSW facilities. This will allow up to 120 cubic yards of composting material without a permit from the MPCA. The MPCA will not have regulatory control over facilities with this designation, although they hope to provide best practices for them so they are good neighbors and operate well.
2) Source Separated Organics Composting Facility designation: Many facilities are now operating in this manner. The designation allows a facility to take source separated food and yard waste, compostable plastics, and a few MPCA Commissioner-approved materials. If someone wanted to bring in manure or equine bedding material, they will need special MPCA permit approval. There are a number of provisions for operations. This Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) process aims to reduce pathogens via certain criteria that facilities must meet to ensure the final product is safe for release. There are rules for testing for maturity, among others.
Daleiden said as a County Commissioner and a taxpayer, he hates to see the Facility not utilized. He would like to do something with it. If the equipment has a use elsewhere, they should find a home for it. He was open to ideas from MPCA regarding how the equipment could be utilized on-site or elsewhere.
Scheurle said the legislature recognized that the grant agreement requirements imposed by the State on Counties should no longer be enforced. The Facility does not have to stay open if there is no way to get the waste to it and pay the bills. During recent MPCA research, Scheurle said the question arose regarding what documentation must be submitted to the MMB (formerly the Minnesota Department of Finance) to lease the Facility or sell it. They were not sure whether the requirements under Statute 16A.695 are still in place. At first, the OEA sent out a letter stating the requirements were still in effect, but others said the legislative intent was to eliminate them. Scheurle said the Statute is not clear. In 2002, MPCA sent a second letter saying certain counties were relieved of that duty. In recent conversations with Stearns County regarding their household hazardous waste facility, it became clear that the MMB should address this question. The MPCA does not interpret this Statute.
Scheurle said that re-commissioning the Facility for another purpose would probably require someone to assess the equipment. Daleiden said Buehler has already done so. The equipment is in good shape. Daleiden added that the software would have to be updated to reuse the Facility. This would require a significant investment.
Scheurle provided examples of potential buyers of the equipment.
Sawatzke said the Facility was more expensive and elaborate than the other seven facilities in the State. The County paid twice as much, but the others had more operational problems because their equipment wasn’t as good. In the end, all the facilities failed for various reasons.
Sawatzke reviewed the history of the Facility. He said it cost $15.8 million, of which $2 million was given by the State, and $13.8 million was paid for by the County with a twenty-year bond that finished a few years ago. Sawatzke was elected to the County Board in 1991. Construction was just beginning, and the Facility went online in June of 1992. The Facility had the capacity to process 165 tons of garbage per day, but never achieved that marker. On average, the County generated less than 100 tons per day. Heavy organic material was also received from Elk River. Eden Prairie Resource Recovery sent highly compostable material, which was added to the regular County garbage. Eventually the Facility achieved an average of nearly 140 tons per day. The lighter material was sent back to the Elk River facility to burn.
Scheurle said before the County completed the sale, there was an acceptance testing process where all the equipment was pushed to its capacity. The failures of the system were financial, and loss of flow control of the garbage (the requirement that garbage must be processed at the Facility), which was determined to be unconstitutional in the early 1990s. After that, the Facility was forced to compete with other waste processing facilities.
Sawatzke said the other challenge was that contaminants were mixed in with standard organic waste, which made it hard to end up with an outstanding product. The product standard was fairly good, but did include some contaminants. As the waste stream became less organic, the concept of taking every type of waste and ultimately yielding an organic product was not realized.
Scheurle said the third challenge was the expectation that the Facility would be a proven system and work at 100 percent efficiency immediately. It wasn’t ready to go, and it took time. There was a substantial amount of fine tuning to do in every case.
Sawatzke said there were certainly issues regarding odors as well. Jean Bryant, a resident of Maple Lake Township adjacent to the Facility, said she lived with the odors every day. Sawatzke said the material was spread on farm fields and was used for daily cover at the landfill, with mixed success. There were more challenges. It was a by product of the waste stream. Since the Facility closed, the Board has been approached a few times. Sawatzke said the Hutchinson facility used the County Facility for organic composting for about a year and a half. The Board has received other requests as well, but the inquirers either didn’t have good track records regarding odor control, or were not interested in paying enough to warrant the risks to equipment and time to manage.
Jeff Young, a resident of Monticello Township, inquired what the Board wanted to get out of the sale or use of the Facility that would benefit taxpayers. Sawatzke said today the intent is to tour the Facility with the MPCA representatives and get their input about potential uses.
Daleiden was curious what the MPCA would like to see with the Facility.
Scheurle said aside from what MMB wants, he and the other MPCA representatives want to help the County landfill less and recover more materials and energy from the waste stream. Scheurle said there are many ways to accomplish that goal. It is up to the County. There are a variety of options regarding the utilization of the Facility. The question is – what is the feed stock and output? There may be haulers who would be willing to pay to utilize the Facility for trash and recyclables. A lot of demolition material is being recovered for valuable commodities in the Twin Cities Metro Area. It is all done within a building. There would be no composting outside. Scheurle said the other reason he brought more staff was to look at composting and to determine whether that would work for source separated organics. He asked if there was an odor control system. Sawatzke said the Board would have to see another comparable facility where odor is not a problem. He said other facilities are also not successful with odor control.
Scheurle said he was referring to source separation. Materials recovery occurs within a building. He asked Mondloch whether petro soil composting is still done to decontaminate the soil. Mondloch confirmed
that the process is still utilized. The contaminated soil can also be placed in the landfill. Scheurle said the idea is that microbes break down the petroleum. Sawatzke said that would create little or no odor.
Scheurle said the MPCA does not want to give the Board advice regarding how to move forward, as that might bias the Board regarding any proposal they receive for this Facility.
Bryant advised the Board not to sell the Facility, but use it the way it is currently. She said she lived with horrific odors for many years. She suggested the Board use the Facility for equipment storage. Potter said the purpose of this meeting was only to gather information.
Daleiden asked whether the building is more useful with or without the equipment. Bryant said selling the equipment is a good idea. Barker said there are other facilities the Board could visit. She agreed that odors are a major challenge with composting facilities nationwide. Scheurle suggested Barker compile a list of facilities in the region that the Board could tour. Most are in the Metro Area.
Jeff Young, resident, Monticello Township, said the Facility created a bad odor. He felt the product was very poor – with elements of benzene, cadmium and mercury. Sawatzke said facilities like this must pre-separate the waste. Barker said it is wise to do source separation.
Kryzer asked how clean the source separated material is based on the trials that have been done. Barker clarified that the quality of the waste stream from residences and institutions depends on procurement. If an institution recycles more Styrofoam and plastic, it will have an adverse effect on the composition of the waste. The increased availability of compostable plastics and materials, along with educating the general public, has improved the quality of the waste stream and makes composting more economically viable. Mondloch said the new rules also specify what materials are acceptable.
Barker said the Duluth facility doesn’t take paper waste, only food, since they are right on the water. The Metro facility takes food. Grocery store waste is very clean. The largest volume of organics is handled through food to livestock. That doesn’t work for residential programs that generate more paper waste. It depends on who the generator is. The primary sites do a lot of work on education, and working with haulers and generators. They are making Class 1 compost. The U.S. Composting Council has a testing program. They test for persistent pesticides, inerts, glass bits, and other materials. Scheurle said it’s not zero. Barker said no, but it is much cleaner than when composting garbage. Mondloch said the rules apply to source separated and organics and not MSW anymore.
Daleiden said convenience stores throw away a lot of food every day. Barker said it comprises thirty percent of the waste stream, with compostable waste paper taking up ten percent. She said they hope to see more commercial waste. Effective 1-01-16, there will be a recycling requirement for commercial buildings. She said the MPCA is hoping they will see higher contributions to organic waste materials at that time. Mondloch said there is a need for good operations to keep odors and fires down. Young said even with good operators, this Facility created a bad odor. Mondloch said the waste stream is different than it was when the Facility began operations.
Bryant said she was here before the landfill opened. The MPCA back then did not help when the smell became very bad.
Potter asked Scheurle to provide information on the State grant to Kryzer regarding the appropriate people to contact regarding whether or not the County is still obligated to pay back the $2 million. Scheurle said he thinks the bonds have been rendered defeasible. He said regardless of whether the County owes any money, there may be document requirements.
Recommendation: Informational only.
(End of 12-05-14 Committee Of The Whole Minutes)
Brian Asleson, Chief Deputy County Attorney, said the County Board held a public hearing in September 2014 and issued an Order approving a land swap between the Elk River and St. Michael-Albertville School Districts. After the original Order was issued, Asleson discovered that five or six lots were not supposed to be transferred to the Elk River School District. Today’s Order corrects the legal descriptions of the affected parcels so that these lots remain in the St. Michael-Albertville School District.
Potter moved to adopt the Revised Order Re: School District Detachment And Annexation Of Land – School Districts #885 and #728. Daleiden seconded, and the Revised Order passed 5-0 in a roll call vote.
Virgil Hawkins, Highway Engineer, presented three resolutions of support for three Local Road Improvement Program (LRIP) projects. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is soliciting applications for the LRIP program, which provides funding assistance for road projects to cities, townships, and counties for construction projects with regional significance for rural road safety. The total funds available in the LRIP now are $54 million for 2015 and 2016. The funds are for projects State-wide. The maximum amount is $750,000 per project for construction costs only. Hawkins said this is a very competitive program. In 2012, there were $61 million in requests and only $10 million available. Hawkins has three projects that meet the current eligibility requirements.
Hawkins said the first project is for a roundabout at CSAH 34 and County Road 134. The estimated cost is $500,000. This project is already listed in the County Five-Year Plan. Hawkins said he is receiving a letter of support from the City of Buffalo.
Hawkins said a similar roundabout project at CSAH 35 and County Road 134 has approximately $400,000 in Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP) funding. If LRIP Funding is awarded to the County for the project at CSAH 34 and County Road 134, he would like to complete them both in 2016.
Sawatzke moved to adopt the Resolution #14- 83 in Support of Funding Application to Local Road Improvement Program for Improvements (Roundabout) at CSAH 34 and County Road 134. Potter seconded the motion.
There was discussion about the speed limits on the roads coming up to the roundabout, and whether roundabouts are more fuel efficient and safer than stop signs or stop lights. Hawkins said the road speeds are currently 55 miles per hour, but would be reduced to 20 miles per hour at the roundabouts. Hawkins said studies show roundabouts provide more efficient traffic flow and increased safety. There are more crashes of greater severity at traffic lights. Daleiden said roundabouts are also less expensive than traffic lights. Borrell said he will not support the Resolution because he feels roundabouts with speeds approaching more than 45 miles per hour are too dangerous. He prefers traffic lights.
The motion carried 4-1 on a roll call vote, with Borrell casting the nay vote.
Hawkins said the second road project is planned to be built this year for intersection improvements at TH25 and County Road 106. Hawkins said $270,000 of local money is budgeted. If the County is awarded this grant, there could be savings in that amount. Hawkins is getting a letter of support from MnDOT Engineer Terry Humbert.
Potter moved to adopt Resolution #14-84 in Support for Funding from Local Road Improvement Program for Improvements at the Intersection of TH 25 and County Road 106. Borrell seconded, and the motion passed 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Hawkins said the third project is the replacement of the dynamic signing systems at the intersections of CSAH 35/CSAH 6 and CSAH 35/ CSAH 8. This application would replace existing intersection warning systems with a fourth generation system (Rural Intersection Warning Control Systems). If successful, the County will put more robust systems in those intersections. Potter moved to adopt Resolution #14-85 in Support for Funding from the Local Road Improvement Program for Replacement of Intersection Warning Systems at the Intersections of CSAH 35/CSAH 6 and CSAH 35/CSAH 8. Borrell seconded. The motion passed 5-0 on a roll call vote.
Potter said at the 55 Coalition meeting they mentioned the State revenue forecasts an extra $240 million. He is not sure how the State will divide that money. It might help some of these projects get funded. Sawatzke said roads would be a good area to invest in.
Hawkins said at the 55 Coalition meeting Claudia Dumont of MnDOT reported that the State found Safety funding for constructing turn lanes on Highway 55 and Highway 3. If they don’t get the Safety grant money, they do have extra funds from their Safety account.
Lee Kelly, County Coordinator, requested to schedule an Owners Committee Of The Whole Meeting on 1-14-15. That is a Committee Day. Kelly said the schematic design is nearly completed and he anticipates budgetary numbers will be available regarding the cost of construction.
Daleiden moved to schedule an Owners Committee Meeting at 10:00 A.M. on 1-14-15 at the Public Works Building, Room 114A, seconded by Potter. The motion carried 5-0.
Husom addressed Items For Consideration C: Board of Adjustment Appointment. The appointee from District 1 is not seeking re-appointment. Daleiden directed staff to publish a public notice for applications for the Board of Adjustment on the County web site. He will review the applications and make a suggestion. Daleiden said perhaps the press could also publish a notice. Daleiden said candidates should submit a letter of interest with their application.
At 9:30 A.M., the County Board meeting was recessed to a Public Hearing for a proposed project for Park View Care Center and the issuance of revenue bonds under Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 462C, adopt a resolution for the issuance and sale of Wright County Revenue Note Series 2014, and authorizing the execution of associated documents.
Asleson said the County was approached by Park View Care Center about issuing revenue notes or bonds not to exceed $10 million. This is commonly referred to as Conduit Financing. The bonds would be paid by the revenue from the planned facility, and the County would not be responsible for the indebtedness. On 12-02-14, the Board adopted preliminary Resolution #14-72 setting today’s date for the required public hearing.
Daleiden asked Asleson to clarify that this bond has no effect on the County’s bonding capability. Asleson said that was correct. The County has done this several times over the last decade or so. The County always consults financial advisors before adopting similar Resolutions. Asleson also consulted State Statutes and the paperwork related to this indebtedness. It does not affect the County’s limits, even if Park View Care Center defaults.
Husom asked if anyone from the public would like to speak about this issue. Hearing none, Husom closed the Public Hearing at 10:34 A.M. and reconvened the County Board meeting.
Borrell moved to adopt the Final Resolution #14-86 for the Proposed Project for Park View Care Center, and the Issuance of Revenue Bonds under Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 462C and Adopt the Resolution for the Issuance and Sale of Wright County Revenue Note Series 2014 and Authorizing the Execution of Associated Documents. Sawatzke seconded, and the motion carried 5-0 in a roll call vote.
Advisory Committee/Advisory Board Updates
1. Highway 55 Coalition. Potter attended the meeting 12-19-14. They discussed updates at County Road 116 and 115 at 55 in Medina. The final pieces are in place for Settler’s Parkway. There were updates from MnDOT. Regarding the legislative preview – Potter said the focus is on transportation. The balance sheet is at $31,819.32.
2. MEADA (Methamphetamine Education And Drug Awareness). Husom said she attended a recent MEADA meeting. They approved a couple of grants, one for Buffalo High School and one for Buffalo Middle School for Drug Education Week.
