Chairman Moyer stated that discussions had been held with the Council on Aging with respect to the aging programs in the community.
Karen Smith, Executive
Director of the Council on Aging stated that most people were aware that
The reasons for the
aging population growth are lower birth rates, retiring baby boomers, longer
life expectancies, and in-migration to this region.

Karen Smith stated that
the Council on Aging was asking the Board of Commissioners to designate them as
the lead planning agency in
The following groups participate in the Coalition:

Chairman Moyer asked Marion Lowery how the Board for the Council of Aging was made up as far as who is on it, what the composition was and how they got there?
Marion Lowery stated that they are self appointed. They have a nominating committee and they try to reflect the community. They do have people with different expertise on it. She offered to provide a list to the Board of Commissioners. At this time there are sixteen (16) people on the Board however there can be as many as twenty-five (25).
IMMIGRATION AND CUSTOMS ENFORCEMENT (ICE) PROGRAM
Sheriff Rick Davis
stated that after almost a year of working diligently on this project he could
safely say that they would get 287(g) on board.
There are some intergovernmental service agreements that need to be signed
and as you know the Federal Government takes its time with everything. One thing that he felt very obligated to do
was give a background on what exactly was going on with this program and why it
was taking so long. He feels that it is
a benefit for everybody in the county and Western
Whenever we signed up for 287(g) this was one of the lead statements. “Terrorism and criminal activity are most effectively combated through a multi-agency/multi-authority approach that encompasses the skills and expertise of federal, state and local resources. State and local law enforcement agencies play a critical role in protecting our national security in part because the vast majority of criminals are taken into custody under their jurisdiction. During the course of daily duties, state and local law enforcement personnel often encounter criminal aliens and immigration violators who pose a threat to our communities.”
Sheriff Davis felt this was an appropriate course of action because of the inability to identify the majority of criminal wanted illegal aliens, due to non-compatible databases being used by DOJ/FBI & DHS/IC. There are almost no consequences to current repeat offenders. All stages of law enforcement response & investigations are more lengthy and time consuming. An annual loss of an estimated $750,000 to county just from the detention center, and 103 IAQs (Illegal Alien Query) since December 1, 2007 (28 are eligible for deportation, 23 actually deported so far, offenses range from NOL (no operators license), DWI (Driving While Impaired), Possible Schedule II (drug offense), armed robbery, aid and abet armed robbery, assault on a female, murder and murder. Additionally 21 deportations started by ICE agents who accompanied the Sheriff narcotic’s unit and 49 persons at various stages of deportation since December 1, 2007).
It is important for
District Attorney Jeff
Hunt stated that you really cannot run an affective law enforcement program
and reduce or control crime if you have
a situation where you have a percentage of your inmates in jail in which you
don’t have a chance to identify. This
287(g) program has been designed or almost tailored for a situation like we

General Revenue Proposal
Getting Started: Illegal Alien Removal Unit
Assistant County Manager Selena Coffey stated that she and Amy Brantley have been working with Sheriff Davis and Captain Cochran on the numbers and one thing she suggested to the Board to give them more comfort level was to ask the Sheriff or Captain Cochran to provide a quarterly report which includes the revenues and expenditures as well as the number of inmates coming and going. Staff will continue to work with them to keep on track. If we do a transfer back from a special revenue fund, which is what is being discussed in the up-coming year budget to reimburse the general fund, we can show it being placed back into the fund balance.
Captain Cochran further discussed the long term needs as follows:
Addition to detention center for cell space
Sheriff Davis stated that the Sheriff’s Office is fully committed to using only federal money for this plan’s operation. In his opinion this will lead to a much safer community.
After lengthy questions and discussion Chairman Moyer requested that this item be placed back on the agenda for the March 6 meeting.
Commissioner McGrady felt that the Board needed to support the Sheriff’s initiative to address the issue of illegal aliens through the ICE 287(g) Program. He further felt that the Board should authorize the Sheriff to hire two (2) deputies starting April 1, 2008 from county funds, conditional upon the execution of an Inter-Governmental Service Agreement with the Federal Government, and authorize the hiring of additional deputies and expenditure funds for capital expenses such as the van and car only from our revenues provided by the Federal Government or State Grants and only after reimbursement of the cost of the hiring of the additional two (2) deputies. All of this would be conditional upon an understanding that monies generated from Federal and State sources would be placed in a special revenue fund and with the understanding that we would receive a quarterly report on the progress being made in the program, both in terms of the finances and the intention to address the criminal element.
Commissioner Williams felt that there would be greater implications than were realized. He was concerned that the Federal Government had created a problem that had now fallen into the laps of both state and local level officials. He stated that if we begin deportation for minor offenses it would create a panic among many in the community that we suspect to be here illegally. If these individuals begin to be deported it may possibly affect the construction workers, hospitality industry, agriculture, etc. These have been identified even by the Blue Ribbon Committee as being areas that we might perhaps find those folks. There could be some very major economic impacts on this county locally and the Board needs to recognize this. He feels there is a problem that needs to be fixed before we take extreme measures as a county. The problem being the need for worker programs, the potential for loss in the workforce.
Commissioner Young feels that people who hire illegal immigrants should help them by working with them and educating them to become legal immigrants with proper credentials.
Robert Heltman had waived his time to speak during public comment and spoke at this time. He had been the Chairman of the Blue Ribbon Committee on Illegal Immigration. Due to strong opinions on both sides of the issue the committee had not been able to solve any problems. The committee was however in full support of the 287(g) program.
It was the consensus of the Board to place this item on the agenda again for March 6.
A five minute break was taken.
FINANCING PROPOSALS – ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS
Finance Director Carey
McLelland stated that in preparation for the anticipated construction of the
new Hillandale and
The proposal from SunTrust Leasing Corporation has been certified as the lowest responsive proposal received. This bank provided a 20-year term rate of 3.92 percent and also an alternate 17.5-year term rate of 3.72 percent for consideration.
The annual debt service payment for 20 years would be $2,909,781 and for 17.5 years, the annual payment would be $3,081,436. These annual debt service payments are respectively $596,219 and $424,564 less than the $3,506,000 annual COPs (certificates of participation) debt service payment included in the projected budget for FY2009. Over both 20 and 17.5 year terms proposed, the interest savings from this installment contract financing over a COPs transaction would be a total of $3,049,107 and $5,274,825 respectively.
The maximum RFP
financing amount requested was $33,250,000.
Mr. McLelland made it clear that this is not the amount that he would
anticipate the county borrowing. He used
a higher amount for Hillandale ($15,272,000) and
Sun Trust Proposal/Annual Debt Service:
20 years (3.92%) $2,909,781
17.5 years (3.72%) $3,081,436
Annual Debt Service Savings (Sun Trust over COPs):
20 years (3.92%) $ 596,219
17.5 years (3.72%) $ 424,564
Term Interest Savings (SunTrust over COPs):
20 years (3.92%) $3,049,107
17.5 years (3.72%) $5,274,825
The total amount for Dana Phase II is a little over $3.6 million. We borrowed money for Phase I in 2005 and we still have some funds left over (primarily interest earnings) in the escrow account which is about $1.6 million. We only need to borrow a little over $2 million to finish out the Phase II construction project.
Staff requested that the Board consider awarding the financing to Sun Trust Leasing Corporation and to approve a resolution, of which a copy is attached hereto and incorporated as a part of the minutes, authorizing the negotiation of financing contract, to set a public hearing and publish a notice of the hearing on the draft financing documents for the Board’s March 6th meeting at 7:00 p.m., and which makes the necessary findings for the financing and authorizes Staff to make an application with the Local Government Commission (LGC) for approval. Staff will bring back final financing documents at the March 19th regularly scheduled meeting for the Board’s approval. LGC review and approval is anticipated at their April 1st meeting.
Commissioner Williams made the motion that the Board accept the schools financing proposal from SunTrust Leasing Corporation and to approve the resolution authorizing the negotiation of financing contract, to set and publish notice of a public hearing for March 6, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. on the draft financing documents, to make the necessary findings for the financing and authorizing Staff to begin the process of making an application with the LGC for approval, specifically pursuing the term of 17.5 years @ 3.72% fixed rate. All voted in favor and the motion carried.
ANIMAL ORDINANCE REVISIONS: KENNEL & CATTERY ARTICLE
During staff review however, discussion arose as to whether or not the County’s current Ordinance dealing with animal nuisances and mistreatment of animals would adequately address the issues that stem from animal hoarding. It was determined that the other sections of the Ordinance could address these issues, which may potentially prevent the need for the Companion Animal Article. Alternatively, the Companion Animal Program gives the County another enforcement tool to prevent serious mistreatment and public health issues.
Staff suggested to the Board two possible options:
1. To consider an alternative to the Kennels and Catteries Article i.e. the Companion Animal Article included below; or
2. To consider whether or not this type of article is actually necessary and whether or not the Board wishes to regulate the number of companion animals that are permitted in a household.
§66A-86. Companion Animal Permit. Any individual who owns, houses, cares for more than 10 animals in their home, residence or dwelling shall first acquire a Companion Animal Permit.
A. Standards. The Animal Service Director shall promulgate rules for the issuance of license permits, which shall include minimum requirements for humane care of all animals and for compliance with the provisions of this and other applicable laws.
B. Maximum Number. Any permit shall be for a specified number of animals. It shall be unlawful for any party to keep companion animals in excess of the permitted amount.
1. Violation of this provision may be grounds for permit suspension or revocation and may result in the impoundment of animals or civil or criminal penalties as discussed below.
impounded by Animal Services under this section must be reclaimed or the
decision appealed within 24 hours of the animal impoundment. After 24 hours, the animals become the
the discretion of Animal Services and Animal Enforcement, the excess animals
may be impounded at the
1. Appeals. Appeals of permit denial or revocation must be made to the Animal Services Advisory Committee within 10 days of revocation or within 24 hours of animal impoundment when it occurs, which ever is earlier and shall be heard in a quasi-judicial proceeding at its next regularly scheduled meeting.
1. No person convicted of cruelty to animals within the last 10 years shall be issued a license permit under this article.
2. Litter. Individuals whose companion animal has a litter do not have to get a companion animal permit provided the total number of animals meets the provisions of this Article after all the animals have been weaned. Individuals may have one litter per year.
Enforcement. Failure to comply with
the provisions of this Article may result in criminal or civil penalties as
contemplated in §66A-19 of this Ordinance.
Violators with more than 10 animals who do not have a permit or have
excess animals from their permit must pay $50 per additional animal more than
10 per day they are in violation. Excess
animals may also be impounded at the owner’s expense. Excess animals impounded under this Article
must be reclaimed within 24 hours of impoundment and then become the immediate
§66A-88. Compliance with Existing Laws. Nothing in this Article shall be construed to conflict or supplant any federal, state or municipal laws, rules or regulations especially those concerning the licensing of kennels, shelters, or pet shop. Not shall anything in this Article conflict with any state, local, or municipal laws regarding land use.
Lieutenant McKay stated that the Companion Animal Program in his opinion would be a good tool that he could use in the enforcement end. Once the Board determines the number then as he approaches someone that is unable to take care of what animals they have, he has a benchmark or number that he can present to the citizen.
Chairman Moyer made the motion that the Board adopt the Animal Ordinance Revision adding the Companion Animal Article as written. The motion passed 4-1 with Commissioner Young voting nay.
PROBATION AND PAROLA LEASE AGREEMENT
Attorney Russ Burrell stated that the North Carolina Department of Corrections is seeking a lease agreement with the County for the Probation and Parole Office. The Department has leased 1543 square feet of office space in the Henderson County Courthouse since 1998, and the current five (5) year lease agreement is due to expire on February 28, 2008. By way of letter dated December 4, 2007, the Department is requesting a three year lease agreement at the current annual rate of $12,961.
The proposed lease was provided to the Board and is a one year lease that would be due to expire on February 28, 2009. The annual lease amount would be $18,516.00 payable in monthly installments of $1,543 and is calculated at $10 per square foot per year.
It was requested that
the Board discuss and provide direction to Staff with respect to the amount and
length of the lease. The Board is

Department of Correction for the office space located at the Henderson County
Attorney Burrell responded that the County was mandated to provide the Probation and Parole Office space but not free space. Other Counties did provide office space outside of the Courthouse to Probation and Parole.
Commissioner McGrady suggested calling a meeting between the Staff of the Parole Office and County Staff to hear what everyone’s long term needs are, looking at statutory obligations both in terms of space, telephones, etc., and then come back with a process to get everything on the table.
Commissioner McGrady made the motion that the Board

therefore made the motion to nominate Jim Crafton as the Chairman of the
Consideration of the EDNEYVILLE COMMUNITY PLAN BOUNDARIES AND CHARTER
Anthony Starr stated that at the workshop on February 18th the Board had asked Staff to make amendments to the boundary to remove the Hooper’s Creek area and look at some of the other areas to see if there were adjustments that were needed. Commissioners Messer and Williams worked with Planning Staff to tweak the boundaries and Mr. Starr thanked them. He felt that the boundaries now seemed logical. The Charter was written almost identical to the Etowah/Horse Shoe Charter.
Commissioner Williams made the motion that the Board approve the Charter and Boundary Map for the Edneyville Community Planning Committee and allow minor changes to take place in respect to the boundaries without the Board’s consent. All voted in favor and the motion carried.
Relocation of a section of
Anthony Starr stated that the Board had discussed this topic at the workshop on the 18th and at this point he felt that the Board wished to further discuss the item. If the Board is willing to move forward the next step in the process would be to set up a public hearing for consideration of the draft agreement. That process does not bind the Board into what the draft says at the time. Additional amendment could be made based on the public input. A draft is put out and is available for public inspection prior to the public hearing. After the hearing, under state law, you can then enact or modify that agreement or choose not to go forward with the agreement at all.
Chairman Moyer stated that the Board would be setting a date for a public hearing.
REVISED LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE TEXT AMENDMENT 9A
The Board of Commissioners at its meeting on Monday, February 18, 2008, directed staff to revise the language for the proposed text amendment 9A concerning the review of subsequent development plans for subdivisions proposing 300 or more lots. Subdivisions with 300 or more proposed lots are reviewed and approved by the Board of Commissioners. This includes master plans and all subsequent development plans. As per the Boards request, Staff recommends adding the following language to §200A-308 to give the Board the option to defer the review and approval for any subsequent development plans to Planning Board, Technical Review Committee, or the Subdivision Administrator.
Anthony Starr stated that the Board had received a draft of the revised text for section of the Land Development Code. The following would be added to the existing text:
Subsequent development plans shall be reviewed and approved by the Board of Commissioners. However, the Board of Commissioners may delegate this approval authority, on a project by project basis, to the Planning Board or Subdivision Administrator provided all conditions of approval are met and the development plan is consistent with the approved master plan. Development plans shall meet all requirements of the Chapter. Final plats shall be reviewed following the processes and procedures outlined in §200A-76 and §200A-311.
There was nothing further at this time.
