28  April 2017 Dearborn County Commissioners EMERGENCY Meeting Notes

Present: Shane McHenry, President, Art Little, and Kevin Lynch

Also present: Gayle Pennington, Auditor, Andy Baudendistel, Attorney.
Bill Shelton Building Inspector, Todd Listerman, Highway Engineer, and Mark McCormack, Planning Director

ABSENT: Terri Randall, Administrator

Baudendistel read the Title VI statement as legally required.

NEW BUSINESS: Baudendistel: Meeting asked for by Baudendistel after hearing about this from Mark McCormack, from Planning and Zoning.
Wireless support structures SB 213 is overly broad and it allows local municipalities counties towns etc to establish
Miller,  Smart, and Weldon, attorneys for the 3 cities were involved. 
Designating all the incorporated areas to have underground utilities not just the the current subdivisions preserves the ability to control cell tower placements. This can be amended later as needed. The governor has’t even signed this law. Even if he doesn’t the deadline still stands. The law does not change anything as far as co location or on maintenance and repair. 

McCormack: explained further saying that there are areas of the county that could be impacted like Bright where they have a lot of underground utilities. Development standards favor getting the utilities underground. They need to have consistency so as to not discriminate on standards. The cities are more impacted as they are placing more small cell structures on buildings or towers etc. 

Discussion around the ability to control some of these issues. Carmel IN, Decatur, Shelby and Johnson County are all watching this bill over time. Baudendistel read off the names of the authors of the bill. McCormack says its a bad bill- they should have worked longer on it. AIC (Association for Indiana Counties) and other entities for municipalities were all against the bill as is. It effectively eliminates our home rule over our own right of ways. It was being pushed by industry. McHenry said the deadline said it shows it intends to deceive people. Tech  needs to be advanced but not this way. They were thankful to Mark for keeping them in the loop and getting this out in time. McCormack found out April 25th that they had changed it. That gave us 5 days to react. Listerman said Mark kept them up to date on how the affects our right of ways. 
Asked for my thoughts on public impact. I told them I was surprised that they could take more liberties than even a public utility generally gets. It would be a taking if this were private property. Instead they are taking the public right of way for themselves. 
All our reps voted for it. In their defense, Baudendistel said they probably didn’t see the last minute change with a short deadline. I said- that even with that- they should have had an issue with the immense latitude they had with the entire public ROW. 

Resolution is to cover us using the blanket approach for protecting the whole county. Baudendistel read the entire resolution. 


RESOLUTION NO. 2017-_2____

SHORT TITLE: RESOLUTION OF THE DEARBORN COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS WHICH IDENTIFIES CERTAIN AREAS OF THE COUNTY AS AREAS DESIGNATED STRICTLY FOR UNDERGROUND OR BURIED UTILITIES

WHEREAS, the Dearborn County Board of Commissioners (“Commissioners”) have jurisdiction over street right-of-ways within the unincorporated areas of the County of Dearborn, Indiana (“County”) and is the permit authority of such municipality regarding the use of County street right-of-ways; and

WHEREAS, Senate Enrolled Act 213 has been enacted into law and amends Indiana Code § 8-1-32.3 as of April 30, 2017 to allow the use of the County’s street right-of-ways for the construction, installation, and use of small cell facilities and wireless support structures; and

WHEREAS, such legislation allows the permit authority of a municipality to designate areas as strictly for underground or buried utilities, provided that such areas are so designated before May 1, 2017; and

WHEREAS, the County, through its Commissioners, desires to designate areas within the unincorporated areas of the County as strictly for underground or buried utilities in order to restrict or prohibit the construction, placement, or use of a small cell facility and the associated supporting structure within the County’s street right-of-ways in such areas where investments have been made to ensure utility lines are located or buried underground.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE DEARBORN COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS AS FOLLOWS:

1. Purpose. The purpose of this Resolution is to adopt a local policy regarding 
the designation of locations within the unincorporated areas of the 
County as underground or buried utility areas pursuant to Indiana 
Code § 8-1-32.3-15(c)(1).

2. Designation. The County, through its Commissioners, hereby determines that 
various developers and homeowners located within the 
unincorporated areas of the County have previously made 
investments to ensure utility lines are located or buried 
underground and, therefore, in an effort to continue this policy, all 
subdivisions located in the unincorporated areas of the County 
where utility lines are currently located or buried underground are 
hereby designated as areas strictly for underground or buried 
utilities pursuant to Indiana Code § 8-1-32.3-15(c)(1).

3. Restrictions. With respect to the construction, placement, or use of a small cell 
facility and the associated support structure, the Commissioners 
hereby restrict and prohibit the placement of new utility poles or 
new wireless support structures in the designated areas of the 
County right-of-ways as outlined in Section 3, except as otherwise 
permitted in Section 4 of this Resolution.
4. Exceptions. Notwithstanding the restrictions and prohibitions contained in 
Section 3, above, the following provisions shall be met and the following exceptions are hereby permitted:

(A) Collocation of small cell facilities on existing utility poles and wireless support structures within the unincorporated areas of the County are allowed;

(B) Repair and/or replacement of existing utility poles and wireless support structures within the unincorporated areas of the County are allowed;

(C) A petition for a request to install new utility poles or new wireless support structures within the unincorporated areas of the County may be filed with the Commissioners which shall hold a public hearing on such petition within thirty (30) days of filing, and upon which a decision shall be made by the Commissioners within sixty (60) days of such filing;

(D) Upon receipt of a petition for the construction, placement, or use of a small cell facility on one (1) or more new utility poles or one (1) or more new wireless support structures in the unincorporated areas of the County, the County shall post notice of the petition on the County’s Internet website with a statement that the petition is available to public upon request; and

(E) The prohibition or other restrictions with respect to the placement of new utility poles or new wireless support structures within the unincorporated areas of the County shall be applied in a nondiscriminatory manner.

5. Emergency. Due to the statutory deadline by which the Commissioners must 
take action, an emergency is hereby declared and this Resolution 
shall be binding and effective immediately upon its adoption and 
execution.  Should Senate Enrolled Act 213 not become law for 
any reason, this Resolution shall not take effect.

18 April 2017 Dearborn County Commissioners Meeting Notes

Present: Shane McHenry, President, Art Little, and Kevin Lynch

Also present: Connie Fromhold, covering for Gayle Pennington, Andy Baudendistel, Attorney, and Terri Randall, Administrator

ABSENT: Gayle Pennington, Auditor

Baudendistel read the Title VI statement as required by law. 

OLD BUSINESS:

NEW BUSINESS:

HIGHWAY DEPT. Todd, Listerman, County Engineer: All the following were approved by Commissioners:
Bridge #24 - Cold Springs Road - Contract Supplemental 1- INDOT shifted the funds to fiscal year 2018. It will start in spring 2018.

Bridge Inspection Contract Supplemental 1- INDOT bridge inspection requires scour inspections now. This updates the contract to cover the additional funds at an 80/20 split. There is an additional charge for the additional inspection.

Bridge #108 - Harrison Brookville at Johnson Fork Road- Contract Supplemental 1- Last fall the county was awarded federal money for this. This is for additional work required for the federal dollars. $135,000 is contract total with Land Water Group and Dearborn County.

Report of Contract B-33278 (Collier Ridge) Final Inspection - work was completed and final inspection done in July, 2015- and this is a catch up on INDOT’s paperwork apparently.

Bridge #5- East Laughery Creek near Gregory Road- Federal aid money to replace this to realign this to take part of the curve out in 2019. To get the necessary permits we need to sign this report to IDEM to limit environmental impacts.

ADMINISTRATOR- Terri Randall- was contacted by Tim Grieve and working on quotes for dump trucks. $92,242 plus from Lischkge Motors was the lowest of 2 bids. Commissioners approved this as a Not To Exceed that amount. 

AUDITOR- Connie Fromhold covered for Gayle Pennington- April 4th minutes approved. Claims approved. 

ATTORNEY- Andy Baudendistel- nothing

COMMISSIONER COMMENTS- Lynch- thanked Lawrenceburg for handling the state legislators town hall for the public- was well attended even from other counties.
Little concurred.
McHenry - thanked every one for the flowers etc and support during that time. (His grandmother passed away) Annex is staying on time and on track.


PUBLIC COMMENT- Tom Niedenhauer lived in HVL- he sent emails to Chip Perfect, Randy Lyness, and the Council and Commissioners. Only got an automatic computer generated answer from Lyness. His concern is the bottles and garbage on the sides of the roads. He travelled for 29 years for Agriculture in Michigan and they had a 5 cent deposit on bottles and cans. Nevada does this also. Now they are a dime per cans and bottle in Michigan. They have CLEAN roadsides. Ten other states have this deposit.  People who clean this up say 3/5 of the containers are alcohol ones. He wants to know where to start with the cleanup. McHenry said to contact the state legislators. He asked if Shane would do that. Shane agreed to pass this on to them. He will contact Tom with that info.

Chris Mueller- asked about Skally’s Old World Bakery status with the West Harrison TIF. Commissioners asked Terri Randall to answer the question. Randall said they didn’t want to say too much as this was Skally’s story to tell really.  Skally’s is stalled. Skally’s parted ways with their developer early on in the project. Randall had spoken with them as the DCRC was holding the property for them and needed to know if it was going or not. She told them they could come back to us when they are ready to make the commitments. The problem was all on Skally’s end. They are not going to move forward. What will happen to that property? Randall said they are proud of what we did on this. A lot of work went into getting that Skally’s TIF district set up.  The property is open now? Yes. She plans to start marketing it now. There’s a lot of interest now so that is good news. What about the bonds tied to this? Randall said - The bonds were queued up. But nothing has happened with them. No actual bond documents created as that is an expensive step. Didn’t close on the land, so the bonds didn’t happen. It’s all still in the county hands, with the bonds queued up for another business perhaps. She said that any other information could be gotten from Skally's. 

LATE ARRIVAL- none

One Dearborn Presentation - Private/Public ED Organization- by EG McLaughlin (UCBank) and John Broward (Sycamore Gas.) 10 slide presentation:
EG- Grass roots effort of private sector business leaders meeting for 18 months. One Dearborn name is the collaboration of them. LEDO- Local Economic Development Organization. They found that we are the only county in the state without a LEDO. - one stop shop. 
Broward- The private sector is leading the effort- Carpe diem- have to seize the day- with the port coming, expansion at CVG with Amazon and DHL. Ripple effect will be felt around that. Real estate and home building market improving. Regional partnerships are the future of funding sources from the state of Indiana. They want to add their experience, resources, ideas, and financial support BESIDE OUR GOVERNMENT. Think they can help with business retention and bring in new ones too. HOW?- How to be sure we got it right. Building the RIGHT organization. Think they have a Dearborn County specific model that will work. Need the private and public to work together in a big way and be results oriented. 
EG- Key is collaboration with private and public. It can’t just be the government. The state is not looking at specific cities they are looking at regions. We need to know how to play the new game with the state of Indiana to come up with some funds. 
Broward- The One Dearborn Business Model- not to dominate it all but cooperate with each other. 
Quality of Life
Citizen Prosperity 
Business Success and Growth
Four pillars- 1.Business retention and expansion
2.Business attraction and marketing, Sites and building inventory development, Lead generation and response
3.Workforce development
4.Quality of Place incentives- Community impact 
Not for Profit Community Partners
Private and Public Sector Investors with a Shared Vision.
EG- There are businesses that have to ship in workers now. We need a trend workforce. The new advanced manufacturing at IVY Tech is great. He has 2 daughters that grew up here but live elsewhere in the state. That generation should have the opportunities to come back here if they so choose. Hard to find qualified candidates at times for some businesses. IVY Tech is a partner in One Dearborn. 
Broward- explained all the people in the operational model
INVESTORS- Business and private sector
Government and public sector - including the county at the top of the list
State and Regional relationships- REDI Cincinnati etc
Community Partners and non- profits
EG- The private sector raised over $125,000 annual for over 5 years. This needs to be an ongoing thing. The level of private sector involvement.
Broward- specifics They will respond and generate Leads, maintain properties on a quality website. Tell a compelling marketing story, understanding existing businesses and opportunities, Get TIFs in front of a wider audience, work regionally on your behalf.
Become the LEDO so they can neutrally, confidentially, negotiate deals. Provide education and economic development 
Leverage additional resources you currently don’t have.
Terri Randall-  if you decide to partner as you move forward with One Dearborn- don’t worry about my position. I couldn’t be more happy to have someone else put resources in this. I couldn’t do all this job. The phone rings and then try to do my county job too. The time has come. I couldn't be more excited to have the private sector do this. Whatever that means for me personally- I have more than enough work to do here. I am in total support of this. 
EG- Have it operational by June 2017. Will have  proposal and fee structure. Will meet with Board President and answer additional questions. 
Andrea Ewan- will you have a director? 
EG  Yes - they will hire one and that is the person we will coordinate with you and also a staff person. IVY Tech will give some space to help.
Ewan- That budget of $125,000 will be tight for this. Will One Dearborn market our properties? 
EG- Part of the fee structure. 
Helms- LEDOs around the state work with IVY Tech- as long as tehir is space available- IVY Tech does house several of this around the state. This gives them use of the phones and computers and space available for meetings. 
EG- We are excited about that part. 
Deaton- expect to see you at our next meeting.
