PUBLIC HEARING REGARDING LANDFILL RATES

(#272)

The Board of County Commissioners met in regular session to discuss a possible increase in Landfill rates. Chair Disney presided and Commissioner Olson was present. Also present were: Janelle Henderson, Director of Natural Resources and Frank Lancaster, County Manager. Recording Clerk, Gael Cookman.

Ms. Henderson explained that she is once again requesting an increase in tipping fees in order to offset the lost revenue that her department has incurred since Waste Management of Northern Colorado began diverting waste to their own landfill in Ault. Ms. Henderson stated she and former Public Works Director, Rex Smith, tried to determine whether to cover the entire deficit with tipping fees, or to start charging for the recycling service; she noted that the County is required to pay the operators of the Recycling Center (Waste Management) $36,000 per month, even if no recycling takes place. Ms. Henderson also noted that the haulers are not required to take their recyclables to the County facility and if they started charging for recycling, it might encourage them to take their business elsewhere. Ms. Henderson explained that she came up with the proposed rates after comparing fees with the competitors, and considering where other cuts in the budget could be made; cuts might include reducing operating costs, delaying equipment replacement, purchasing used vehicles, not opening the Last Resort, and delaying construction projects. Ms. Henderson passed out some sheets which compared her proposed rates with those of her competitors. Chair Disney asked if County rates had kept up with inflation, and if they should consider raising them higher since, even with the proposed rate increase, they seemed to be far below the competitors. Ms. Henderson explained that historically the landfill rates have been set to cover equipment replacement, operating costs, and reserve funds; therefore, inflation and profit were never considered when setting fees. Chair Disney asked if the proposed rates would also replenish the reserve funds. Ms. Henderson replied that they would not and that the reserve funds would remain status quo for the time being. Mr. Lancaster explained that the rates may appear to be much lower, but in actuality, the competitor rates are often negotiated and the rates haulers are paying at other landfills may be very similar to ours.

Chair Disney opened the meeting for public comment and Ray Meyer from Ram Waste Systems approached the podium. Mr. Meyer stated that he is most concerned with the fact that since the cost of recycling is rolled into the tipping fee and their competition (Waste Management) is no longer paying the tipping fee, he and the other haulers in town are subsidizing their competition. Commissioner Olson asked for Mr. Meyer's opinion on whether or not they should charge for recycling and on how the rate increase would affect him and his customers. Mr. Meyer stated that charging for recycling is a possibility but that it could backfire if the haulers chose to take their recyclables elsewhere; he noted that he pretty much absorbed the last fee increase and he will have to see how the new rates affect his business before he can determine how it might affect his customers in the way of a price increase. Chair Disney asked Ms. Henderson if she had considered charging for recycling, but allowing credits each time haulers used the facility to dump trash; an example being that if a hauler dumped $5.00 worth of trash, then that hauler could get $5.00 worth of credit towards dropping off recycling or vice versa. Ms. Henderson stated that this could be an option as the Recycling Center Operating Agreement states that Waste Management cannot charge for recycling, but that doesn't preclude the County from charging for it at the landfill gate. The Commissioners asked Ms. Henderson to devise a way to implement this and come back to the Board with a proposal. Mick Mercer from the City of Loveland stated that he felt it was very important that the public be kept informed with regards to these issues, so when they decide on which hauler to contract for their waste removal, they can take into consideration what the hauler is doing for or against the community. Commissioner Olson wanted to be sure that individual homeowners were not inadvertently discouraged from recycling. Ms. Henderson stated that she would only look at charging the haulers, not individuals, for recycling.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Olson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the Landfill and Transfer Station tipping fee increase, effective January 1, 1998, in accordance with the proposed rate schedule.

Under discussion of the motion, Commissioner Olson asked if the Estes Park Transfer Station would be handled as a separate issue. Ms. Henderson noted that Estes Park would have a separate rate hearing January 15, 1998. Chair Disney stated for the record that this is an issue of fairness and he feels that Waste Management is treating the citizens of this County unfairly and the citizens should be aware of this.

Motion carried 2-0.

The meeting recessed at 3:15 p.m.

ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AWARD PRESENTATIONS

AND LAND-USE PLANNING MEETING

(#273)

The Board of County Commissioners reconvened at 7:00 p.m. in regular session with Larry Timm, Director of Planning. Chair Disney presided and Commissioner Olson was present. Also present were: Dan Tasman, Planner II; Doug Ryan and Judy Heiderscheidt from Environmental Health; and Jeannine Haag, Assistant County Attorney. Recording Clerk, Sherry Graves.

1. ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP AWARDS PRESENTATIONS:

Mr. Ryan informed the Board that this is the third year for the presentation of the Environmental Stewardship Awards, sponsored by the Board of County Commissioners and the Environmental Advisory Board; he explained the application and nomination process and noted that the purpose of the award is to recognize citizens, businesses, and agencies that demonstrate exceptional stewardship of the environment. Mark DeGregorio, Environmental Advisory Board (EAB) member, stated that the EAB believes that the award winners for this year represent a cross section of businesses, agencies, organizations and individuals that have taken on a personal commitment to maintain the quality of the environment in Larimer County, and have demonstrated exceptional effort with their innovation and approaches taken in solving environmental changes.

The Board of County Commissioners presented the 1997 Environmental Stewardship Awards to the following: 1) Houska Automotive, nominated by Judy Heiderscheidt, for their ongoing efforts regarding pollution prevention in an automotive repair shop and community involvement by conducting workshops to provide training to other shops; 2) Friends of the Poudre, nominated by David Lauer, for their ongoing activities regarding protection of the Poudre River; 3) Larry Gamble and Rocky Mountain National Park, nominated by Mark Peterson, for their work with neighboring landowners to develop strategies for protecting natural and cultural values and using citizen work groups and computer generated mapping data in a project called the "Related Lands Evaluation"; and 4) Steve Hird, nominated by Larimer County Parks and Open Lands Department, for his donation of $15,000 for reclamation activities.

2. LARIMER COUNTY COMMERCIAL MOBILE RADIO SERVICE (CMRS)

FACILITY REGULATIONS (#97-RA1109):

This is a request to amend Section 27 of the Larimer County Zoning Regulation by adding Section 27.11 - Commercial Wireless Radio Service (CMRS) facilities (regulations for cellular, PCS, paging and other services classified by the FCC as Commercial Mobile Radio Services); to amend Section 33.2 by adding definitions relating to CMRS facilities, and to require a $180.00 administrative review fee for CMRS facilities, effective upon adoption of the amendment. Mr. Tasman submitted and reviewed the pros and cons of the proposed siting regulations, as of December 16, 1997, and noted that Planning staff is proposing these amendments to regulate the placement of such facilities in a clear, flexible manner, and to encourage the construction of facilities where the impact on the County's visual environment is as small as possible; he noted that the purpose of the proposed regulations is to accommodate the increase in wireless communications needs of Larimer County residents, businesses and visitors, while protecting the public health, safety, general welfare and visual environment of the County. Mr. Tasman continued that expansion of the wireless telecommunications industry will have many positive effects on Larimer County, including lower rates, higher quality service, higher security, and the ability to transmit data and signals from remote locations.

Staff findings include: 1) Wireless communications facilities are of value to the community and it is in the interests of the community to encourage their appropriate placement and design and to foster competition between and among providers of wireless communications services; 2) The amount of applications and inquiries for wireless facilities is increasing at an exponential level; 3) The County currently regulates wireless facilities through an interpretation of existing regulations for antennas and towers, which were written before wireless communications services, such as cellular and PCS telephones were commercially viable; 4) Current regulations do not encourage or offer any incentives for co-location, co-development, or the use of less intrusive wireless facilities; 5) Wireless facilities that are not properly placed, designed and maintained can have adverse visual, aesthetic and safety impacts on the community as a whole, and on residential neighborhoods and the County's sensitive visual environment in particular; 6) It is necessary to reduce these impacts to establish clear and objective standards for the placement, design and continuing maintenance of wireless communications facilities.

The Planning Commission/Staff recommendation is for approval of the amendment to Section 27 of the Larimer County Zoning Resolution adding Section 27.11 - Commercial Wireless Radio Service (CMRS) facilities and approval to add Section 33.2 of the Zoning Resolution by adding definitions relating to CMRS facilities. The staff recommendation is for approval of a $180.00 fee for administrative review of CMRS facilities effective upon adoption.

Questions from the Board and discussion followed; Chair Disney asked about the danger of the radio signals from the cellular facilities. Mr. Ryan responded that the typical cellular tower is 1/100th of the FCC maximum standard allowed and emits relatively low emissions, which are safe. Commissioner Olson asked about enforcement of the regulations; Mr. Tasman responded that enforcement would be similar to enforcement of other provisions in the Zoning Code. Ann Closser, land use consultant for Air Touch Cellular, lauded Mr. Tasman for his efforts in working on these amendments to the regulations and for being so concise and doing a great job; her only comment was that special condition (e) under zoning states that "notice must be sent to all property owners within 2,640' of the site" and she noted that it is customary to only require 500' for concept technical review and special review and she asked that the distance requirement be changed accordingly.

At this time the public hearing was closed and opened for Commissioners' remarks; Chair Disney stated that common sense should be applied for the distance requirement. Mr. Timm stated that one of their goals in the new Land Use Code is to use a common sense approach and make the notice requirement fit the situation by having a set distance, with the ability to go farther if circumstances dictate; he noted that staff will have to be very careful in assessing what the neighborhood area of interest might be. The Board expressed appreciation to Ms. Closser, the Task Force, and Mr. Tasman for their hard work in bringing about good government in action; Commissioner Olson read aloud the names of the other members of the Task Force: Nathan Foster, Fred Fox, Ron Hovlin, Jill Jellenek, Mike McCreedy, Troy Miller, Jeanie Richens, Larry Storms, and Phil Wattus.

Mr. Tasman recommended that special condition (e) under the Zoning section be changed to read: "Neighborhood meeting required. Notice must be sent to all property owners within 500' of the site, or a greater distance if the Planning Director determines that the visual impact of the facility warrants a greater notification area."

M O T I O N

Commissioner Olson moved that the Board of County Commissioners adopt the staff findings and Planning Commission/Staff recommendation and approve the amendment to Section 27 of the Larimer County Zoning Resolution adding 27.11 - Commercial Wireless Radio Service (CMRS) facilities, approve the addition of Section 33.2 of the Zoning Resolution by adding definitions relating to CMRS facilities, as further amended this evening, and approve a $180.00 fee for administrative review of CMRS facilities, effective upon adoption.

Motion carried 2 - 0.

The hearing adjourned at 7:50 p.m.

Also present were: Neil Allen, Executive Director FortNet; Ginny Riley, Deputy Director of Community Services Programs; Glen Rathgeber, Manager Community Services; Gary Klaphake, Estes Park Town Manager; and Deni LaRue, Community Information Officer.

1. OPEN SESSION FOR PUBLIC COMMENT: Frances Banderet reminded the Board he addressed the Board on August 19, 1997 on behalf of his elderly parents regarding a locked gate denying access to their home at the west end of WCR6; he noted that the matter was taken under advisement to provide an opportunity for the Board to discuss the situation with the County Attorney. Mr. Banderet stated that he has not heard anything and he wondered if a decision had been made. Chair Disney stated that the last he heard the situation was under litigation and the County Attorney was going to take legal action to keep the road open. At this time, Mr. Lancaster called the County Attorney for an update and was informed that he has met with some of the residents and has a few more people to interview; he noted he will report back to the Board regarding this matter after the first of next year.

5. PRESENTATION ON FORTNET: Mr. Allen presented a packet of information and provided an overview about FortNet; he noted that in 1993, the Fort Collins City Council wanted the citizens to have an easily accessible, community-wide source of community information and so a handful of energetic citizens and several dedicated volunteers, with contributions from local businesses formed FortNet, a non-profit corporation, which is a comprehensive web site listing various types of information about Larimer County. Mr. Allen discussed some of the activities of FortNet; he informed the Board that on January 24, 1998, they will be holding their second annual all-day Community Internet Festival at Rocky Mountain High School and they are expecting over 800 persons to attend. Mr. Allen stated that he hopes the County and FortNet can get together and promote other activities in this area; questions from the Board and discussion followed. Mr. Allen noted that FortNet helps Larimer County residents become better-informed citizens and brings new technology to our society.

6. PRESENTATION ON PROPOSED NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPLORER CENTER IN ESTES PARK: Mr. Klaphake informed the Board that the Town of Estes Park has been approached by National Geographic to build an Explorer Center in Estes Park; he noted that National Geographic has Explorer Centers in Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, Waikiki Beach, Seattle, Hearst Castle, Yellowstone and Centers are under development in Victoria, B.C. and the Florida Everglades. Mr. Klaphake stated that the plan is to convert the existing Town Hall into the Center and relocate the old police and fire station; he noted that City Council is interested in this proposal because it will be a higher and better use of the site on Elkhorn Avenue. Mr. Klaphake stated that they have been working on the design of the building and have decided it will have the "lodge look" using natural materials of moss rock and wood. Mr. Klaphake noted that, as required by State Statutes, an election will be held next April for citizen approval to sell the building to National Geographic; he stated that, if approved, construction will begin in June 1998 with completion by March 1999. Mr. Klaphake stated that a seat fee will be charged which will be used for parking and shuttle transportation to the Center; they plan to provide free "Park & Ride" from satellite lots with people movers; he noted that this whole venture will cost National Geographic $20 million. Questions from the Board and discussion followed.

7. REQUEST TO RENT OFFICE SPACE AT 1629 BLUE SPRUCE DRIVE: Ms. Riley requested Board approval to lease an additional 6,000 sq. ft. of office space at 1629 Blue Spruce Drive for Community Services Elderly and Disabled Programs; she noted that the reason for leasing this space is to provide 20 additional work spaces to address the current overcrowding situation in the Blue Spruce building and the other objective is to complete consolidation of the aging units. Mr. Rathgeber described the funding for this request, noting that the move in, the first years' rent, equipment and renovation will be $201,000, with $127,000 of that total being a one-time cost. He noted that they will be funding that expenditure with some additional pass-through money from the State, some indirect rent money from the Office on Aging and Long-Term Care Program, and they will have some vacancy savings. Questions from the Board and discussion followed; Mr. Rathgeber stated that they are still working on funding and can use $62,000 from their Fund Balance. Chair Disney asked about long-term funding implications; Mr. Rathgeber stated that will be covered by reductions in staff.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Clarke moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the rental of 6,000 square feet of space at 1629 Blue Spruce Drive in Fort Collins for Community Services Elderly and Disabled Programs; monies for this expenditure to be funded within the 1998 budget, with a maximum of $62,000 from the Community Services Fund Balance for one time costs.

Motion carried 3 - 0.

8. RESOLUTION FOR WAIVER/REDUCTION OF LIQUOR LICENSE BACKGROUND CHECKS: Ms. Graves requested Board approval of a resolution for the waiver/reduction of the liquor license background investigation fee; she noted that last July the State raised the fees for liquor licenses and renewals and added some new fees, including an optional fee of $100 at the local level for background checks. Ms. Graves stated that the applicants already pay $48.00 for fingerprinting and background checks by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation and, as it only takes five minutes of the Clerk's time to process the background investigation paperwork and fifteen minutes for the Sheriff's Department to process a fingerprint card, a fee of $25.00 seems more reasonable; she noted that since no fee was collected for background investigation previously, adoption of this resolution will not result in a loss in revenue.

M O T I O N

Commissioner Olson moved that the Board of County Commissioners approve the resolution for the waiver/reduction of the liquor license background investigation fee, as requested; the fee to be charged will be $25.00 per person for regular (for-profit) corporation applicants and waived for non-profit organizations.

-- Mr. Lancaster informed the Board that a letter of notification has been received from the Stanley Heights Homeowner's Association in Estes Park stating that they plan to close the North Lane road on January 1, 1997 and erect a gate with password access; he noted he asked Public Works about this closure and was told that North Lane road is a private road and not a public right-of-way and is not maintained by the County.

11. COMMISSIONER REPORTS:

-- Commissioner Clarke stated that the alternative parties group is planning to go to Glenwood Springs on January 17, 1998 and they have asked the School Board and the City of Fort Collins to pass a resolution supporting the "BASH" (Best Alternative Student High) and he would like for Larimer County to do the same. Commissioner Clarke noted that the group now has a logo and video and this Thursday they are going to meet with the Seizure Fund Committee to request funding and they are also trying to schedule an appointment with the City of Fort Collins to request funding. Commissioner Clarke stated that the BASH to Glenwood will cost $14,000 and the students and chaperones will each pay $15, which will be $7500, and they have already received some donations. Mr. Lancaster will prepare a resolution and have it ready for Board approval and the Chair's signature during Administrative Matters next week.

-- Chair Disney reported on the Fort Collins Growth Management Committee meeting he attended recently, along with Assistant County Attorney Jeannine Haag, Larry Timm and Russ Legg from the Larimer County Planning Department, and Marc Engemoen, Public Works Director, regarding the IGA agreement; he noted that they agreed with all our positions. Chair Disney stated that the change of the Growth Management Area boundary will go through Fossil Creek Reservoir and they are proposing having this area in the corridor and becoming a joint planning area with Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, and Larimer County.

The meeting recessed at 11:10 a.m.
