Union County initially advertised the Network Architecture project in December 2019 and received no bids at the bid opening in January 2020. The

project was re-advertised in February 2020 and one bid was received on the bid opening on May 01, 2020. The bid received was from Carolina Contracting Investments Inc. in the amount of 1,289,230, and the engineer s estimate for the project was 2,300,000. The bid was thoroughly reviewed for accuracy and compliance with the bid documents and found to be responsive. The difference between the bid and engineer s estimate was found to be attributable to discounting on materials, efficiency in labor for systems setup and integration, lower general conditions costs, and conservatism in the engineer s estimate. Based on the engineer s review and Procurement Division approval of the bid, staff recommends award of the project to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder, Carolina Contracting Investments Inc., in the amount of 1,289,230.

16. Records Retention and Disposition Schedule Amendment to Creat Retention Periods for Administrative Value Records BACKGROUND: In 2015 and 2016,

the Sheriff and Board of County Commissioners adopted a Records Retention and Disposition Schedule (the Schedule ) to direct the length of time various records (known as record series ) created in the operation of the Sheriff's Office must be retained by the Sheriff, and thus when such records may be destroyed. In 2019, the State revised the General Records Retention Schedules for county governments and removed several types of records from the Sheriff's Office specific retention schedule. The County's general Retention Schedule was amended in 2019 following this change by the State. However, the Sheriff's Office Retention Schedule has not been updated.
Tagged Interests: boards and commissions and public safety

Additionally, the law permits the Sheriff to destroy certain categories of record series when their reference value ends. At each place where the law

permits this destruction to occur in the Schedule, there is an instruction to destroy when administrative value ends, and a blank space for the Sheriff to insert the time period after which the record may be destroyed. If the record does not have a designated retention period, then the NC Department of Cultural Resources (the State department having control over the retention and destruction of public records within North Carolina) has not given consent for the record to be destroyed.

26. Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Funding BACKGROUND: The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was

signed into law on March 27, 2020. This law directed 150 billion to states and territories via the Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) to be used for expenses related to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic. NC received a total of 4.066 billion, with approximately 481M provided directly to local governments with populations greater than 500,000. Session Law 2020-4 placed 300 million in a local government CRF reserve fund and appropriated 150 million of those funds to be distributed to counties across NC who were not eligible for direct funding.
Tagged Interests: coronavirus, funding, and security

On May 22, 2020, Union County received 4,152,585 from the NC Office of State Budget and Management. Guidance continues to be released regarding

eligible expenses, but the initial direction suggests that eligible spending must be directly related to necessary expenditures incurred due to the COVID-19 public health emergency. This funding will provide a revenue source for expenses incurred between March 1, 2020 and December 30, 2020 to prepare, prevent, and/or respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Tagged Interests: coronavirus, funding, health, budget, and emergency

Page 12 of 498

Requirements regarding the use of CRF include: the expenses must be not accounted for in the most recently approved budget as of March 27, 2020,

expenses must be used for expenses incurred between March 1, 2020 and December 30, 2020, and any unspent funds as of December 30, 2020 must be returned to the State by January 10, 2021.

27. Solid Waste Recommended Rate Changes - (This item was deferred at the June 1, 2020, Regular Meeting.) BACKGROUND: The Solid Waste Enterprise fund

is a dynamic business with ever changing operational issues that require flexible business practices to adjust to market changes. With the variety of materials and vehicles used to make deposits at the Austin Chaney convenience site, it has become clear that current fees charged do not reflect a fair assessment for the variety of vehicles being used to deliver material. The new rate structure would simplify the rates while clearly defining the vehicle types based on their
Tagged Interests: impact fee, business, market, utility, solid waste, Utility, materials, and rates

Page 13 of 498

respective capacities. The new structure also includes a new fee for disposal of electronics (CRT's and TV's) to help offset the net 150,000 per year

loss for disposing of such products.

In addition, it is recommended to change the permit rate charged to commercial haulers to an annual flat rate rather than the current per vehicle

charge which becomes a disproportional financial burden to the larger haulers. This is also a business model that will continue to keep the County's Solid Waste program competitive with surrounding solid waste disposal options.
Tagged Interests: business, finance, utility, solid waste, Utility, program, and commercial

FINANCIAL IMPACT: The new rate structure is anticipated to result in a positive revenue position yet to be determined. Initiation of fees for

televisions and CRT's is estimated to generate nearly 100,000 in additional revenue to offset costs for disposal. Changes to the credit hauler permit fee are estimated to result in a nearly 10,000 loss in revenue. ACTION REQUESTED: Approve revisions to the Solid Waste rate schedule for Austin Chaney Residential Waste and Recycling Center and Waste Hauler permit fees.

28. Water, Sewer Solid Waste Write Offs BACKGROUND: Beginning in FY13-14, the Tax Collector's office assumed responsibility for collecting delinquent

utility accounts. N.C.G.S 25-2-725(1) and 1-52(1) place a statute of limitations on how far back delinquent water, sewer, and solid waste account balances can be collected. Water accounts can be collected up to 4 years past their final bill date while sewer and solid waste accounts can only be collected up to 3 years past their final bill date. Staff respectfully requests the Board's approval to write off all water, sewer, and solid waste account balances exceeding these statues of limitations as detailed in the attachment.
Tagged Interests: sewer, boards and commissions, taxes, Taxes, utility, solid waste, Utility, and water

FINANCIAL IMPACT: There will be a reduction in the accounts receivable balances for Public Works by 354,982.40 and Solid Waste by 11,403.97. There

will also be shown as a corresponding expense to the enterprise fund uncollectable accounts. ACTION REQUESTED: Approve the write off of uncollectable water, sewer and solid waste accounts as needed.

Tagged Interests: impact fee, sewer, utility, Utility, services, water, and rates

In response to the states of emergency related to COVID-19, as well as the Governor s Executive Order 124 concerning the operation of utilities

related to disconnections, late fees, and payments, the District s Board of Governors adopted a resolution on May 4, 2020, taking certain actions regarding utility service disconnections, late fees, and payment plans related to Executive Order 124 ( EO 124 ).

Tagged Interests: coronavirus, impact fee, boards and commissions, utility, Utility, and emergency

On May 30, 2020, the Governor issued Executive Order 142 ( EO 142 ), which among other things, extends the prohibition on a utility from terminating

the service of a residential customer for nonpayment and billing or collecting late fees in EO 124 through July 29, 2020. EO 142 also continues, with minor revisions, the payment plan requirements of EO 124.
Tagged Interests: impact fee, utility, and Utility

Corresponding with the requirements of the Governor s Executive Orders 124 and 142, the resolution also extends the suspension of any policies and rules preventing reconnection of services during the same time period.
Tagged Interests: sewer, utility, Utility, services, and water

The District s resolution also authorizes the District s Executive Director, or designee, to provide certain payment plans as required by Executive

Orders 124 and 142. In addition, the resolution allows arrearages incurred prior to March 17, 2020, (the date the District s suspension of service disconnections due to nonpayment and billing and collection of late fees began) to be included in such payment plans.
Tagged Interests: impact fee

If the District s resolution is so adopted, it will be necessary for the Board of Commissioners to take action to approve the resolution relating to

32. Adoption of a Resolution Authorizing Condemnation to Acquire Certain Property or Interest in Property for a Temporary Construction Easement and

Permanent Utility Easement BACKGROUND: The Yadkin Regional Water Supply Project ( YRWSP ) is a water utility project involving the construction of a raw water intake and pump station on Lake Tillery in Norwood, a raw water pipeline running from the raw water intake to a water treatment plant in Union County, and a finished water pipeline running from the water treatment plant and connecting to the County s existing water distribution system.
Tagged Interests: construction, utility, Utility, water, plant, property, condemnation, and easement

As part of the YRWSP, the County must acquire easements for construction and use of the water pipelines, and related infrastructure in Union County.

The Board has adopted the Union County Property Acquisition Policy and Procedures (the Policy ) for property acquisition applicable to the YRWSP. The Policy involves property appraisals and multiple attempts at discussions with the property owner. The Policy is designed to ensure that property owners are informed about the project and given a fair price for property interests acquired. At the end of the Policy s process, if the County and property owner have been unable to agree on property acquisition, the County may use condemnation to acquire the necessary property interest.
Tagged Interests: construction, boards and commissions, utility, Utility, procedure, water, property, policy, condemnation, and easement

Pursuant to Chapter 40A of the North Carolina General Statutes, the General Assembly has delegated eminent domain authority to county governments for

certain purposes. The County tries to use this authority sparingly, reserving it for use only when unable to obtain property interests after following all of the steps in the Policy. In this case, as the County is obtaining easements for the YRWSP, it has been unable to obtain easements across properties owned by: (i) Bentwood Farms, LLC; (ii) Shawn Levy; (iii) Bobby Sherrill Little; (iv) Darwin J. Caudle; and (v) Loretta Simpson Fincher, Melvyn Cornelius Simpson, Melissa Tucker Jarrod Simpson. In order to ensure timely completion of easement acquisition for the YRWSP, it is requested that the Board adopt the attached resolution for the condemnation of certain utility easements across these properties.

36. CZ-2019-014 (Oakton Mixed Use) BACKGROUND:

Page 17 of 498

This is a request to amend the Zoning Map of Union County by rezoning three parcels of land (06-159-003, 06-159-003C, and 06-159-003E) from R-40

(Residential, 40,000 square foot minimum lot size) to R-4 CZ (Residential, 4,000 square foot minimum lot size) and B-2 CZ (Community Business). The applicant requests the rezoning in order to develop a single family, age restricted neighborhood with a maximum of 46 duplex and triplex units and contains approximately 2.2 acres of commercial. The project s access will come from one access point off Providence Road. The project will meet setbacks of 20 feet in the front, 25 feet in the rear, and 10 feet on the sides. The overall density of the residential portion of the project is 5.17 units per acre. Since this is a conditional rezoning request, the district is bound by all conceptual plans and conditions approved as part of the process.
Tagged Interests: business, zoning, property, commercial, and neighborhood

At its March meeting the Planning Board voted to recommend that the BOCC deny the rezoning request. In making the recommendation the Planning Board

noted that this would add traffic to an already congested Providence Road and that the plan seemed underdeveloped due to the uncertainty of the commercial component in terms of uses and size.
Tagged Interests: planning, boards and commissions, streets, zoning, commercial, and traffic
