Chairman Tice congratulated Lt. Watkins on his achievements.<br><br> PUBLIC HEARINGS Chairman Tice declared the meeting to be in a public hearing. Proposed Amendment to the Iredell County Subdivision Ordinance - Section 405.7.I, Curb & Gutter 3 Stormwater: Subdivision Administrator William Allison said a two-step approach to address erosion related problems was being presented. He said the first amendment pertained to curb and gutter, and it proposed to address erosion from the beginning stages of development with subdivisions as ca whole. d Allison said the amendment stipulated that builders would have to meet some standards in order to be eligible to use curb and gutter.<br><br> Allison said the second amendment was geared towards a cmore individual approach. d He said the building contractor would have to obtain a grading permit at the time of construction. Mr. Allison said this amendment would educate responsible parties and prevent individual erosion occurrences on lots not covered by the state ordinance (one acre minimum review).<br><br> Mr. Allison said neither amendment would totally eliminate stormwater problems, plus they were not retroactive, but the staff felt they would make an impact. Additionally, he said the staff could enforce the amendments in-house.<br><br> Allison said the planning board had approved both amendments, and there was a recommendation for the grading permit fee be set at $45 for residential and $100 for commercial with July 1, 2005 being the effective date. Commissioner Robertson said the amendments still allowed for much silt to flow into the lake areas. He said there were many intermittent streams in the county not listed on the U.S.<br><br> Geological Survey maps. Robertson encouraged the staff and planning board to re-review the problem especially with lake residents and builders because silt could not be prevented. He said a more comprehensive ordinance was needed to aid the residents who had the intermittent streams.<br><br> Robertson acknowledged that a more stringent ordinance might be difficult to enforce, but he still desired to see something that addressed the problem cmore directly but didn 9t place an unreasonable burden on someone doing construction in the watershed around Lake Norman. d Commissioner Williams asked how the amendments would impact pending subdivisions. 3 Allison said the standard policy indicated that any projects having preliminary approval through the subdivision review committee would be grandfathered or vested. He noted the curb and gutter amendment would apply to all areas of the county.<br><br> Jerry Santoni presented slides of his Lake Norman property. He said one tract bordered a cove and another was across the street with both of them being connected with a culvert pipe. Mr.<br><br> Santoni had the following to say about the stormwater issue: Stormwater effected everyone, Stormwater was dangerous and powerful, Stormwater created safety & health hazards, and Residential landscaping also created problems. Santoni said he had contacted over 25 different federal, state, and county offices, along with other agencies about his stormwater problems, but there wasn 9t anything that could assist him. No one else desired to speak, and Chairman Tice adjourned the hearing.<br><br> MOTION by Commissioner Robertson to (1) accept the amendment to the Iredell County Subdivision Ordinance 3 Section 405.7.I, Curb & Gutter - Stormwater, (2) accept the amendment to the Iredell County Zoning Ordinance; Article XV, Section 5.1 Grading Permits, Erosion and Sedimentation Control, (3) accept July 1, 2005 as the effective date for both amendments and (4) to accept the recommendation for the grading permit fees to be $45 for residential and $100 for commercial.

Inspections of work in progress : As the work pursuant to a permit progresses, local inspectors shall make as many inspections of the work as may be necessary to satisfy them that it is being done according to the provisions of the applicable State and local laws, local ordinances and regulations, and terms of the permit.

Note: During the briefing, Finance Director Blumenstein said the funding would be taken from the fund balance which would still remain around 11% of the General Fund Budget. She noted that maintaining the 11% mark was not a written policy; however, bonding agencies were always told this was the percent the county tried to maintain.<br><br> It was also noted that this year 9s Medicaid costs were $480,000 higher than anticipated. Social Services Director Don Wall said at the agenda briefing that 146 children or youth were currently in foster care.

Request for a Decision Regarding the Monetary Amount to be Used for the General Obligation Bond Referendum to be held in October 2005: Finance Director Blumenstein said that earlier in the year, the Iredell-Statesville School System presented a request for a General Obligation Bond Referendum in the amount of $36,400,000.00. She said later, requests were submitted from the Mooresville Graded School District for $10.5 million and Mitchell Community College requested $6 million resulting in a total amount from all entities of $52,900,000.00.<br><br> She said calculations for a 20- year debt service, with level principal payments, revealed a total estimated tax increase of $0.0334. She said, however, the amount could be reduced to $0.03 and it would be well within the budgets already established for capital outlay with the restricted tax and restricted revenue stream from the sales taxes. Blumenstein said a specific bond amount was needed for the upcoming legal documents.<br><br> Commissioner Johnson noted that, historically, a per pupil method had been used. Blumenstein said the 1997 General Obligation (GO) referendum was on a per pupil basis. She said the 2003 Certificates of Participation (COPS) was not.<br><br> Mrs. Blumenstein said that in 2003, Mooresville 9s percentage was about 33% of the issuance total. Chairman Tice said it was her understanding that Mitchell 9s request would be voted upon separately from the two school systems.<br><br> Blumenstein said this was correct. She said both questions could be on the same ballot, with the two public school systems being combined in one question, but the college would have to be separate. Commissioner Williams said the per pupil method, which was traditional for the county, was the fairest way for all of the citizens.<br><br> 13 Commissioner Robertson said the board tried to adhere to funding formulas to be fair. He said sometimes, however, that method didn 9t put the resources where they were most needed. Robertson said most of the past bonds were used to build facilities for future student populations and not to assist with existing needs.<br><br> He said that out of the county 9s total public school students, Iredell-Statesville had 81.4% compared to Mooresville at 18.6%, but this didn 9t include the charter, private and home-schooled children. He said projected student population figures out to year 2010 didn 9t deviate that much from the current percentages. Robertson voiced concern for the Mooresville system, and its future plans, if the board of commissioners chose to use a per pupil method for the bond amounts.<br><br> Commissioner Johnson said the commissioners had acted upon the school needs in the past, and if the bonds were unsuccessful, the commissioners would continue to fund the systems. Johnson said the schools would be built, but he would let the citizens decide if they wanted their taxes raised. MOTION by Commissioner Williams to use a per pupil basis for the General Obligation Bond with $36,400,000.00 being used for Iredell-Statesville Schools, $8,230,000.00 for Mooresville Graded Schools, and $6,000,000.00 for Mitchell Community College.<br><br> VOTING: Ayes 3 5; Nays 3 0. (The total amount for the bond referendum will be $50,630,000.00.) Announcement of the 2005 Annual Conference of the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners to be held August 25-28, 2005 in Charlotte, NC & Request for the Designation of a Voting Delegate: Commissioner Williams advised that if his schedule remained clear, he would attend the NCACC Annual Conference and serve as the voting delegate.

COUNTY MANAGER 9S REPORT: County Manager Mashburn distributed a written activity report. Finance Director Blumenstein noted that a $10,000 budget transfer had been made for the Human Resources Department due to increased advertising costs.<br><br> (No action was needed from the board, but standard operating procedures require for the transfer to be reported.)
