Adopted this 9th day of October 2006. Children’s Services Unit: Larry Crandell, DSS Director, recognized these employees for their successful foster care placement rates. Mr. Crandell shared that these employees handle children protective services, adoption services, investigation, case management and foster care. County Manager Lucas stated that Anson County DSS had been commended by the State Department of Health and Human Services for its continued commitment to assisting the State with meeting its Challenge for Children goals. County Manager Lucas noted that the goal is to reduce the number of children remaining in the custody of DSS for more than 12 months. County Manager Lucas stated that Anson County’s reunification and placement stability rates exceed counties of similar size. County Manager Lucas stated that not only are they doing great things but they are demonstrating results. Mary Kendall, Supervisor, introduced those in attendance as Joan Polk, Sherry Ponds, April Burch-Benton and Keisha Dunlap. Mr. Crandell recognized Tanyon Martin and Tammy Goodson as part of the group who were unable to be here tonight. Vice Chair Sikes thanked them for the job they do and they received a round of applause from those in attendance. Commissioner Jones voiced that this was a hard job and these employees are called upon when families are in trouble and commended them for their contribution to people’s lives and neglected families. Ms. Kendall stated that the social workers in this department do this from the heart and are not paid for what they do. Ms. Kendall thanked the Board for the recognition, stating that this is the first time in her fourteen years that they’ve been recognized. EMS Crew- Life Saved: County Manager Lucas stated that this was related to an incident that occurred late September in response to a cardiac arrest at Brown Creek Correctional. County Manager Lucas shared that two guards started CPR on the scene and when our EMS crew arrived there was no pulse. County Manager Lucas stated that thanks to the efforts of the EMS staff the individual lived. County Manager Lucas introduced the crew as Teresa Morton and Sidney Sides. County Manager Lucas noted that Scott Russell, who is also a crew member, was unable to attend tonight. Vice Chair Sikes thanked them for the job they do. They received a round of applause from those in attendance. Appearances: Richard Pinkston voiced concern for the landfill not accepting car batteries and shared that this is included in the contract. Mr. Pinkston shared that he talked with employees of the convenience centers and found that some accept them and some don’t. Mr. Pinkston shared that some give them to the Gideon’s and the Burnsville Center accepts them and the person running the center sells them. Mr. Pinkston stated that this was not that much but the county was to get half of anything received from recycling. Mr. Pinkston spoke to the terms of the Citizens Advisory Board and was of the opinion that the Commissioners should enforce the term limitation. Mr. Pinkston also felt that the Advisory Board was working against the county rather than for the county. Vice Chair Sikes thanked Mr. Pinkston for expressing his thoughts. County Manager Lucas noted that he has communicated with Allied concerning the battery issue and they have committed to working with us to resolve the matter. Commissioner Lear stated that it was pretty clear cut if it was in the contract. Commissioner Sims voiced that it was interesting that twenty years later they are still discovering what is in their own contract. Teresa Capers-Greater St. Matthews Children’s Celebration: Ms. Capers shared a hand out with Board members regarding their Christmas in November Program. Ms. Capers stated that the program started in 1991 with a purpose to strengthen families who were in need of more than just Christmas presents for children and to impart the love of God through word and deed. Ms. Capers stated that the program was the brainchild of their Senior Pastor and since the program began, they have served over 500 families in Anson County. Ms. Capers outlined that they work with several agencies including DSS, Crisis Ministries and the school system to identify children in need of help. Ms. Capers stated that there is a greater need this year and because of the loss of their corporate sponsors she asked the Commissioners to partner with them by making a cash donation of $2,000. Ms. Capers invited each Board member to attend the program on November 27, 2006 at 6:00 P.M. Commissioner Sims stated that like Ms. Capers he grew up very poor and volunteered one bicycle. Vice Chair Sikes stated that no action would be taken at this time and directed staff to look at this and get back with her. Ted Hill-Gardenscape Request for Waterline: Mr. Hill was not present. Commissioner Streater asked if he was on the Agenda last month with County Manager Lucas answering it was two months ago. Commissioner Jones noted that if he asks again the matter would be considered again. Sandra Ricketts-Board of Election Chair: Ms. Ricketts shared that she was present as a secondary backup to her appearance last month. Ms. Ricketts stated that the Board of Elections met in closed session last month with the Board of Commissioners and the only word they received was that no decision was made. Ms. Ricketts asked the courtesy of a yes, no or that the matter has been tabled to be discussed at another time. Commissioner Jones called for the next item on the Agenda. Vice Chair Sikes stated that the matter was tabled at this time until further action. Vice Chair Sikes then stated that no action was taken so he guesses that is a no to their request. Public Addresses to the Board: Sylvia Jeter, a resident of Morven, appeared on behalf of the Township of Morven. Ms. Jeter shared that Morven was one of the poorest towns in the county and they are having high water and wastewater billings with some ranging from $60 to $125 a month. Ms. Jeter shared that their rates have gone up while their gallons have gone down. Ms. Jeter stated that they cannot afford to pay these high bills and asked the county to consider taking over water and wastewater for the Town of Morven. Commissioner Streater stated that this was on the Agenda to be discussed later in the meeting. Karen White, of the Anson County Association of Educators, appeared before the Board to ask them to consider raising the local supplement for teachers. Ms. White shared that the minimum supplement was $383 with the maximum being $930. Ms. White shared the following supplements from various other counties: Richmond: minimum is $744 with the maximum being $1109 Montgomery: minimum is $600 with the maximum being $2000 Stanly: minimum is $1650 with the maximum being $2250 Union: minimum is $1550 with the maximum being $4542 Ms. White shared that she loves her job in Anson County but is considering going to Union since financially it is getting harder and harder. Ms. White stated that in addition to being teachers, they are also counselors and they wear many hats in a given day. Commissioner Jones asked Ms. White if she was from the NEA with Ms. White answering yes. Commissioner Jones then asked if she holds an office with Ms. White answering she is the local president. Commissioner Jones then asked Ms. White if she was aware that a couple of years ago they made an appearance before the NEA with a suggestion for a supplement and it was voted down by the NEA. Ms. White shared that she was not aware of this. Commissioner Jones stated that the NEA told the Board of Commissioners the reason they voted against this was because Dr. Truman was opposed to this. Again Ms. White stated that she was not aware of this. Commissioner Jones stated that the suggestion made to the NEA at that time was for a referendum to the people of Anson County to have supplements for teachers. Commissioner Jones asked Ms. White what level of supplement she would recommend with Ms. White feeling it was currently at 1.5%. Commissioner Jones then asked Ms. White her thoughts on having a referendum and Ms. White felt it was a wonderful idea and recommended 2.5. Commissioner Sims voiced that he did not remember talk of a referendum as a body in official capacity. Commissioner Lear stated that he did not recall mention of this as well as Commissioner Streater. Commissioner Jones shared that he made an appearance before the NEA as an individual and they voted it down based on the fact that George Truman was opposed to it. Commissioner Streater asked why he was opposed to it with Commissioner Jones answering it was not clear other than the fact that they were afraid of him. Commissioner Jones stated that his proposal then and now is to have a referendum and let the people of Anson County decide if they want to support education. Commissioner Streater agreed with holding a referendum. Commissioner Sims stated that he was not aware of the events discussed by Commissioner Jones and offered that Dr. Truman was a professional educator and he does not believe he would do anything to keep teachers from having higher supplements. Commissioner Sims feels if Dr. Truman rejected the plan it was probably because he did not feel comfortable that it would be advantageous for teachers. Commissioner Streater was of the opinion that a Board member or County Manager Lucas should talk with Dr. Truman and this group to see if they would support this. Vice Chair Sikes offered that staff would follow up on this. Vice Chair Sikes thanked Ms. White for appearing before the Board.

Approp) $ 833 Total Increase $ 833 Adopted this 9th day of October, 206. Economic Development Report: Accepted as presented. Administrative Matters: Town of Morven-Water & Sewer Issues: County Manager Lucas shared that the issue to consider the feasibility of taking over the Morven’s water and sewer operation came to him from Mayor Carr. County Manager Lucas feels the board needs to work with the Town to evaluate the system. County Manager Lucas suggesting getting an engineering assessment in order to know the condition of the assets in the ground and bring that back before the Board with a recommendation. County Manager Lucas feels it would not be prudent to take over the system without knowing the financial implications. County Manager Lucas feels it would take thirty to sixty days for the assessment. Commissioner Streater asked Mr. Gulledge if he thought it would take sixty days with Mr. Gulledge feeling there were a couple of factors to consider. Mr. Gulledge feels we need to evaluate the water and sewer system. Mr. Gulledge stated that the general life of water and sewer is generally forty years and Mr. Gulledge understands this was put in during WPA days. Mr. Gulledge agreed that an engineer needs to evaluate the maintenance requirement for the Town and if we take this over he feels we need to prepare a complete budget for their water and sewer. Mr. Gulledge shared that our sewer rates are based on treating for all the towns and Morven’s rates are considerably higher. Mr. Gulledge stated a preliminary analysis shows that the average water and sewer customer of the county uses approximately 5,000 gallons per month. Mr. Gulledge stated that based on the number of customers and the amount of flow Morven has, their average bill is around 9,000 gallons. Mr. Gulledge stated that if the average Morven customer uses 5,000 gallons per month and we extend our rates to them, we would lose several thousand dollars a month in revenue. Mr. Gulledge stated that it would take an engineer to find out what is happening and feels it would take at least sixty days. Commissioner Streater then asked Mayor Carr if the Town had a recent study on the system with Mayor Carr answering that he just signed a contract with Engineering Services about a month ago. Mayor Carr was of the opinion the pipes were closer to fifty or sixty years old. Mayor Carr shared that the town is spending between three and five hundred dollars a month on repairs. Mayor Carr voiced that it was unfortunate that tax rates, water and sewer rates bear no relationship to the ability of people to pay. Mayor Carr shared that they have lost their tax base and are relying on customers to pay the bill. Mayor Carr stated that they would soon spend $19,000 to refurbish their water tank. Mayor Carr stated that they have thought about doing away with the water tank due to the high maintenance cost and have the water piped directly to the citizens. Mr. Gulledge was of the opinion that DWQ would not let them close the tank since it was needed for fire flow. Commissioner Lear wondered if Environmental Impact of RC&D could be of assistance to Morven. County Manager Lucas stated that he would investigate to see if there was something they could do. Mayor Carr stated that he could almost crush the water pipes with his hand with all the rust and corrosion. Mayor Carr voiced that some customers were no longer drinking town water to due all the rust and corrosion. After discussion, motion by Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Jones, to direct the County Manager to look into this and report back within sixty days. Motion carried unanimously. 2007-2009 Work First State Plan: Mr. Crandell stated that every two years he appears before this not so humble body to present the plan for work first or more commonly called the welfare program. Mr. Crandell stated that the plan cost money but it was the same as was spent in 1996. Mr. Crandell introduced Lula Jackson, Work First Supervisor, to present the plan. Ms. Jackson explained that the plan was basically the same as last year with a few innovative changes. Ms. Jackson stated that one difference is that this plan will assist work first participants in obtaining a drivers license. Ms. Jackson stated a lot of work first participants have never taken a driving test and this plan will set aside funds to make this available to them. Ms. Jackson stated that another program was family planning and DSS in conjunction with the Health Department will offer gift certificates to TANIF recipients for family planning services. Ms. Jackson stated that this would be available to both male and females starting at age twelve and over. Commissioner Jones questioned getting a gift certificate for attending family planning. Commissioner Jones then questioned giving a present to someone to come listen to something about family planning which generally speaking is not get pregnant. Ms. Jackson said they were offering a gift card to Wal- Mart in the amount of $50.00 as an incentive to not do that. Commissioner Sims asked if the gift card was given per night of attendance thinking he might want to get on the program. Ms. Jackson shared that family planning was once a year. Commissioner Streater asked if they had to attend the follow up with Ms. Jackson explaining that they would receive $25.00 for attending the initial program and they have to return within a month to make sure they are using the contraceptives or doing what was suggested for them to do in the first visit. Ms. Jackson shared that they would receive an additional $25.00 for attending the follow-up visit. Commissioner Jones asked if they receive this gift card only if they are not pregnant with Ms. Jackson stating that they get the card whether they are pregnant or not as long as they attend the programs. Commissioner Jones voiced appreciation to Wal-Mart for their generosity with Commissioner Sims stating that Work First pays for the cards and Wal-Mart is not giving them away. Commissioner Jones asked the county’s role in this. Mr. Crandell voiced that for nine year’s he has been trying to get into the school system to prevent and reduce teenage pregnancies in the county. Mr. Crandell offered that we have one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the State and they cannot get into the school system due to some federal thing that says all you have to do is preach abstinence. Mr. Crandell stated that if we were practicing what we were preaching we would not have the teenage pregnancy problem in the first place. Mr. Crandell stated that they are trying to back door into this to get the welfare parents and children to hear that if you’re going to have sex at least practice safe sex which prevents STD’s and pregnancies. Mr. Crandell offered that you can’t get people to do things out of the goodness of their heart and if you offer a little something they will participate. Commissioner Sims voiced appreciation for the attitude and concern but feels there are two ways of doing this. Commissioner Sims feels you can give incentives or say if you don’t come we will cut it all off. Mr. Crandell shared that they can’t do that because we are a standard county and the federal government through the state operates these rules. Commissioner Lear feels this is admirable and asked if anything like this had been tried in other counties. Mr. Crandell did not know the answer. Mr. Crandell stated that we are going to spend $367,000 regardless of what we do and we also have the opportunity to pull down about $690,000 of federal money and up until two years ago we were not spending all of it. Commissioner Jones asked why with Mr. Crandell answering we were not spending it because we did not have an adequate plan. Mr. Crandell shared that we have less than 200 families in the county on welfare. Commissioner Lear asked Mr. Crandell if he feels this will reduce the rate with Mr. Crandell answering that he feels it is better than doing nothing. Commissioner Lear asked if there was a way to measure the success of the program with Mr. Crandell answering yes by seeing what happens to the STD rate and the pregnancy rate. County Manager Lucas stated that the ultimate goal is self sufficiency. Mr. Crandell stated that if they had their way and the school system had its way we could get in and work together. Mr. Crandell offered that Smart Start, the Health Department and DSS cannot get in the school system. Commissioner Lear offered that working in the school system he has seen plenty of what Mr. Crandell is talking about and asked about an incentive to not get pregnant. Ms. Jackson felt that was a good thought. Commissioner Jones shared that twenty years ago his wife, a public health nurse, was on the school board and a champion of putting into the school system a similar program. Commissioner Jones stated that the program was adopted but then cancelled because the School Board Chair reported her to the Attorney General and wanted her arrested and her nurse license taken away because she was promoting promiscuity in the school system. Commissioner Jones agreed that we need to find an effective way to frustrate this situation. Ms. Jackson noted another program they will be promoting is volunteer time for parents. Ms. Jackson stated that all Work First recipients are required to do thirty-five hours of activities per week and those having children in school will be required to spend a portion of those hours in the school. Ms. Jackson did state that those parents that are working will not be required to spend time in the school if there is a conflict but there are meetings that take place in the afternoon that they will be encouraged to attend. Commissioner Streater voiced support for the program noting that we’ve got to try something because everything else has failed. Motion by Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Jones, to approve the plan as submitted. Commissioner Sims asked at the state, local and national levels were we increasing the number of illegitimate children or decreasing the number. Mr. Crandell did not know the answer. Commissioner Sims stated that if the federal or state government does not turn lose and give us options to say to people we want the children to be taken care of but if you don’t do as asked then you will not get anything it will not get better. Commissioner Sims agrees that the incentives are better than nothing but they will not solve the problem. Commissioner Streater stated that an educator from the school system was on the Work First Committee and they agreed that something needs to be done. Motion carried unanimously. Work First Demonstration Grant: Mr. Crandell announced that this was a demonstration grant where they are going after more money. Mr. Crandell stated there are no county dollars in this Grant. Mr. Crandell shared that one of the more serious problems their welfare clients have is transportation. Mr. Crandell then introduced their brainchild, Lawrence Gatewood, to explain the grant. Mr. Gatewood stated that has served as a work first social worker for approximately six years and he’s never been more excited about the opportunity to contribute more to the working poor in our county than he was tonight. Mr. Gatewood stated that they have written and applied for a $288,630 grant that can be administered using existing manpower at DSS. Mr. Gatewood explained that the General Assembly has appropriated nineteen million dollars to be spent over three years in support of work first participants. Mr. Gatewood shared that the objective is to move the participants from where they are currently into meaningful work. Mr. Gatewood shared that Ms. Dorsey, area coordinator for work first, was impressed by the plan. Mr. Gatewood explained that they will ask the client to contribute $500 towards the purchase of decent vehicle and they will invest from the grant money $4500, making a total package of $5,000 towards the purchase of a vehicle. Mr. Gatewood stated that they plan to work with local dealerships to make sure the car is well equipped and has been thoroughly inspected. Mr. Gatewood stated that if the client has a vehicle to trade in they would hope the local dealers would guarantee $500 value for the trade in making the total value of the deal $5500. Mr. Gatewood shared that over the three year period they propose to purchase 45 vehicles at a rate of 15 per year starting as soon as the program is approved. Mr. Gatewood feels confident the program will be approved. Commissioner Jones asked Mr. Gatewood if he anticipates this reducing the burden on ACTS with Mr. Gatewood answering in a sense yes. Mr. Gatewood stated that this would give the clients reliable transportation to and from work. Commissioner Lear voiced that he likes the concept of the client contribution of $500 and applauded Mr. Gatewood for a well thought out program. Commissioner Sims asked what assurance we have that the client will not loan the car to someone or that they will do the required maintenance. Mr. Gatewood stated that once the client has access to the car it becomes their vehicle but the primary intent is to make sure they have transportation to and from work. Mr. Gatewood feels that out of the 45 cars they hope to purchase some will be abused and misused but one requirement of the program is that the applicant must attend an automobile maintenance workshop. Commissioner Sims asked if the client becomes unemployed do they keep the car with Mr. Gatewood answering yes. Commissioner Lear feels we will never be able to foolproof the $500 and asked what happens if someone decides to sell their car. Mr. Crandell said there would be assurances that they would never get another car under this grant. Commissioner Jones asked why we could not protect ourselves and take a lien on the vehicle. County Manager Lucas noted this was presented as information only and no action is required at this time. Commissioner Sims feels there should be some personal responsibility somewhere. Commissioner Sims noted that politicians say all the time that we are not going to give anybody money and we’re going to make people work. Commissioner Sims was of the opinion that people ought to work as it was good for pride and productivity but stated that when he looks at housing, food stamps, transportation, daycare, automobile and medical he is not so sure we are not paying more to work than we were the other way. Urgent Repairs Grant: County Manager Lucas stated that we were writing an application to the State for this program and in the past it was $3500 then bumped to $5,000 and we didn’t put any county match in the program. County Manager Lucas stated that last year we were a Tier 2 county and now we are a Tier 3 county until January 1 when the Tiers will change. County Manager Lucas stated that this is a competitive grant process and using our funds will enhance the competitiveness and allow us to leverage more with the grant. County Manager Lucas asked the Board to consider reallocating existing funding in the amount of $3,000 as matching funds for the Urgent Repairs program upon receipt of the grant. County Manager Lucas announced that funds would be reallocated from the existing budget. Motion by Commissioner Sims, seconded by Commissioner Lear, to follow the County Manager’s suggestion. Motion carried unanimously. Former Board of Education Building-Storm Water Drain: County Manager Lucas stated that he asked someone from DOT to be present to speak to the issue. County Manager Lucas shared that there is a large sink hole that has been growing in size for the last six to eight months and on several occasions we’ve added dirt to this to keep it from growing. County Manager Lucas stated that DOT is concerned that the sink hole will begin to consume their sidewalk and then the road and we would be liable. County Manager Lucas explained that DOT is responsible for storm water and when the building was constructed someone put a junction box at the drain on the hill and ran a pipe under the ground to take the water to the storm water run off which is adjacent to the left side of the building. County Manager Lucas stated that staff researched old minutes and it has been difficult to find any information on this issue. County Manager Lucas stated that DOT has nothing on record to say they installed the pipe and therefore will hold the county liable if it falls in. County Manager Lucas noted that repairs to the drain would be more costly with the building there than if the building was removed. County Manager Lucas stated that the building is of no use to the county and it seems no one has a desire to purchase this property and asked Board members their thoughts. County Manager Lucas reminded Board members that the Town of Wadesboro has asked us to condemn the property. Commissioner Streater asked Marvin Deese, Chief Building inspector, his thoughts. Mr. Deese advised the Board to tear down the building. County Manager Lucas feels the property would sell better without the building. Commissioner Streater asked the board to remove the building with Mr. Deese feeling it would be expensive. Commissioner Sims stated that if we get into lead paint and asbestos there is no telling what the cost would be to tear down the building. Commissioner Sims voiced that we had a fairly decent building that we ignored and over a period of time water got in and completely ruined the building and the problem will continue to grow and cost even more. Commissioner Lear commented that we would do better to give the building away. County Manager Lucas stated that that was an option and feels someone may take it if we give it away. Larry Newton, Assessor, stated that at one time he had a demolition quote of $28,000. Mr. Deese shared that at one time the man tearing down the old Little Cotton building gave a price of $35,000 but then said he might be wiling to tear down the building for the property. Commissioner Streater mentioned the person tearing down the Little property and made a motion to deed the property to him. Commissioner Lear suggested having the County Manager enter into negotiations for the building. Commissioner Lear asked the Manager and the County Attorney to make sure the county is relieved of any liability. Cooperative Extension Memorandum of Understanding: County Manager Lucas stated that this was something the State and the NCACC has been working on for the last year in order to establish a new Memorandum of Understanding between the counties and the Cooperative Extension. County Manager Lucas asked the Board to consider and adopt the changes to the existing Cooperative Extension Memorandum of Understanding. County Manager Lucas stated that there was no fiscal or operational impact to the county. County Manager Lucas offered that the county is currently a send-in county which means all the employees are employees of the State and this is not the case in some counties. County Manager Lucas stated that this revised MOU moves all Cooperative Extension Agents to be employees of the State of North Carolina. County Manager Lucas stated Anson County has been an optional lock in county which essentially guarantees the cost-share percentages for all compensation related adjustments. County Manager Lucas stated that both things in the memorandum that they are seeking other counties to get to we have already done in Anson County. Motion by Commissioner Lear, seconded by Commissioner Streater, to approve. Commissioner Streater asked what changes were made with Ms. Rywak noting there were no changes to the current Memorandum of Understanding. Ms. Rywak stated that the last MOU was signed in 1993 and it was time to update and resign. Commissioner Sims was of the opinion Ms. Rywak was doing a good job and voiced that he would vote for this. Motion carried unanimously. Dress Code Policy: County Manager Lucas stated that this was brought before the Board in September and the Board asked the County Attorney to review the policy. County Manager Lucas stated that there was one instance where we left something in the male dress code that we did not put in the women’s and that has now been made equal and consistent per the County Attorney’s recommendation. County Manager Lucas stated that it was now back before the Board for approval to become a part of our Personnel Ordinance. Motion by Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Jones, to approve. Motion carried unanimously.

Appeals should be addressed to the County Manager. Meeting Date for November & December: County Manager Lucas stated that the Board meeting for November was currently set for the first Tuesday which is November 7 and is also Election Day. County Manager Lucas asked if there was any desire to change the date. County Manager Lucas stated the December meeting was scheduled for the first Tuesday and per North Carolina General Statutes in even numbered years the new Board is to take office on the first Monday. County Manager Lucas asked the Board to change the December date to the first Monday rather than meeting on two dates. Commissioner Streater voiced that he saw no reason to change the November date. Commissioner Streater voiced agreement in changing the December meeting to the first Monday. Commissioner Sims agreed. Motion by Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Jones, to have the November meeting on the regular scheduled date and move December to Monday. County Manager Lucas announced that would be December 4th. Motion carried unanimously. Criminal Justice Facilities-Capital Needs Assessment: County Manager Lucas stated that this issue first came before the Board in September with the recommended action to consider appropriating an amount not to exceed $15,000 from the court facilities fund balance to conduct a capital needs assessment for the court facilities. County Manager Lucas noted that the criminal justice stakeholders and Board members felt it was imperative to get an objective, professional opinion on the condition, options and funding estimates for the renovation and/or construction of a new courthouse facility. Commissioner Jones asked what they plan to do with the $15,000. County Manager Lucas stated they would do an RFP for the study and then bring that back to the Board to select the firm and then come back to the Board with a full assessment. Motion by Commissioner Jones, seconded by Commissioner Streater, to approve the $15,000 allocation from the court facilities fund for this purpose. Commissioner Lear wanted to make sure this was a necessary first step and that we were not spending $15,000 to find out something we already knew. County Manager Lucas stated that was one of the questions asked and feels before going into any capital construction project you need an assessment of needs. County Manager Lucas stated that if this were to lead to a capital project we could reimburse the fund balance with the capital project fund. Commissioner Sims was of the opinion that we would probably spend the money for a study with such a high price tag that nothing much would be done. Commissioner Sims voiced that the alternative was to do nothing and that would make the Judge ill and he feels the only reasonable thing to do is to do the study. Commissioner Lear agreed doing nothing was not an option and asked if the stakeholders agree this is what we need. County Manager Lucas answered yes and Judge Beale feels it would be beneficial to have something the Board could take to their constituents. Motion carried unanimously. Parallel Taxiway Contract: County Manager Lucas stated this was approval of the capital project contract and budget for Phase 1 of the parallel taxiway construction at the Airport. County Manager Lucas stated that the parallel taxi-way was a requirement for the ILS system (instrument landing system) that the FAA will commission, install and maintain beginning in 2008. County Manager Lucas stated that matching funds for the project were budgeted in FY 2007. County Manager Lucas shared that the total budget for phase 1 construction would be $1,112,908.28. County Manager stated that this total is $215,192.62 less than the lowest bid and approving the change order allows us to begin installation of the taxiway. Motion by Commissioner Lear, seconded by Commissioner Jones, to approve. Commissioner Sims asked the cost of the installation and equipment to be installed by the FAA. County Manager Lucas did not know the value but stated he would be glad to find out. Commissioner Sims feels it important to understand that most of the money spent at the Airport has been federal and state grants and the pay back is taxing the planes and hangars. County Manager Lucas pointed out that the county has made a substantial investment of approximately three to four hundred thousand dollars over the last three or four years and feels there is a point where the capital comes to a conclusion and we begin to market the facility. Motion carried unanimously. The Crossings Subdivision-Letter of Credit Release: County Manager Lucas referred to the letter contained in the agenda packet from the Department of Transportation stating that the road and erosion control measures have passed inspection. County Manager Lucas recommended the return of the remaining $30,000 we are holding as a performance bond. Motion by Commissioner Lear, seconded by Commissioner Jones, to release these funds. Commissioner Sims was of the opinion that as we move forward we should be cautious on how much liability we take on these projects. County Manager Lucas stated that DOT will take over the road so there is no liability. Commissioner Streater asked if we should not wait until DOT takes over the road before refunding the money. County Manager Lucas stated that they’ve done what was asked and DOT has signed that it meets their approval. Commissioner Lear asked to amend his motion that we release this funding based upon the inspection and satisfactory report of the DOT. Commissioner Sims voiced that they have about as much river frontage as we have in front of the courthouse. Commissioner Jones voiced that his second stands. Motion carried unanimously. Appointments: Airport Commission: Commissioner Sims asked the number of appointments needed with County Manager Lucas answering six were open. Commissioner Sims nominated Bobby Hancock for one position. Commissioner Streater offered a second to the nomination. Commissioner Jones stated that Mr. Hancock was a personal friend of his but felt he was one-half of the County Manager’s problem with the Airport. Commissioner Jones was of the opinion that Mr. Hancock would tell others problems he saw with the construction of the terminal rather than telling the County Manager. County Manager Lucas stated that he has no problems with Mr. Hancock and in fact he has encouraged Mr. Hancock to take more action as the Airport Manager. Commissioner Jones remembers the County Manager telling him of a number of concerns from Mr. Hancock that the Manager had to hear third hand. County Manager Lucas stated that Mr. Hancock tells him of issues and he has encouraged Mr. Hancock to be more aggressive in dealing with them. Commissioner Jones shared that he received a call in support of Mr. Hancock but he feels Mr. Hancock would serve no purpose on the commission as it is not his style. Commissioner Sims stated that he understands there are five or six appointments to be made and he didn’t think Mr. Hancock would be the only one. Commissioner Jones stated that he would recommend Blake Hildreth and Bobby Little, III. Commissioner Jones stated that he is hearing now that had Mr. Hancock only told us there would not have been all this back door stuff and now he is hearing that none of that happened. County Manager Lucas asked for clarification on this as he has had conversations about being kept out of the loop but it was a result of things this Board remedied in previous meetings and not Mr. Hancock. Commissioner Streater voiced that he visited the Airport and Mr. Hancock showed him things about the new building that was not right. Commissioner Jones asked why Mr. Hancock didn’t tell the Manager with Commissioner Streater offering that this was before Andy’s time. Commissioner Sims was of the opinion that everyone should go through the Manager with everything. Commissioner Jones agreed. Commissioner Jones feels there are serious money issues at the Airport and feels there should be an audit of the monies expended on the project. Commissioner Jones stated that no one can tell him how the monies have been spent. County Manager Lucas stated that he would be happy to share the information on how the funds have been expended with Commissioner Jones. County Manager Lucas shared that the furniture for the building was purchased before he came on Board and before Holly was finance officer so he cannot speak to the issues of furniture. Commissioner Jones voiced that he has no interest in what happened after October and he would love an audit prior to October. Commissioner Streater reminded Board members of the call from Mr. Martin regarding the furniture. Commissioner Jones voiced that he was interested in not only that but how the secondary paving money was spent and how the checks were written. Commissioner Jones stated that he is also interested in how the money was spent for the first grading and how the checks were written and what happened to the balance of the funds. Commissioner Sims voiced that Mr. Hancock was a fine man that has spent a lifetime of service at the airport and if you find fault with him you probably have a problem of your own. Commissioner Jones took issue with this statement and Commissioner Sims then apologized. Motion carried unanimously. County Manager Lucas then asked which position Mr. Hancock would be filling with Vice Chair Sikes stating it was the vacant position. County Manager Lucas asked about the other vacancies. Motion by Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Lear, to approve the reappointment of Jim Martin, Hoy Lanning, Theodore Horne, Jr., Benjy Brasington and Ken Huntley. Commissioner Sims voiced that he assumes the Board was voting for the vacant position and reminded Board members that he did not agree with not allowing Mr. Wease to participate and assumes that was not a part of the vacancies. Commissioner Sims stated that he was making a motion for a vacancy and according to the vote last time Mr. Wease was not eligible. Vice Chair Sikes agreed. Commissioner Jones then asked Commissioner Sims if he would have supported Mr. Wease with Commissioner Sims answering yes. Commissioner Jones then asked Commissioner Sims if he would support Mr. Wease over Mr. Hancock with Commissioner Sims stating that was his business. Motion carried unanimously. Citizens Advisory Board: Commissioner Lear submitted the name of Frederick Usrey and Commissioner Jones submitted the name of Hugh James. Commissioner Sims stated that he realizes they’ve served many terms but they’ve done a wonderful job and he would like to keep Bobby Briley and Mr. Hobbs. Vice Chair Sikes said he was not ready to make his appointment. Vice Chair Sikes asked for a motion to table this until next meeting. Commissioner Streater suggested appointing those mentioned tonight. Commissioner Streater stated that Mr. Tyner did not wish to serve again. Motion by Commissioner Sims, seconded by Commissioner Streater, to approve the appointment of Hugh James and pending their approval, Frederick Usrey, Bobby Briley and Dwight Hobbs. Motion carried unanimously. Board of Health: Commissioner Jones nominated Betty Russell to replace Carroll Anderson whose term has expired. Commissioner Streater seconded the nomination. Commissioner Streater asked the Clerk if Ms. Knotts and Mr. Wright were willing to serve with the Clerk stating she did not know. Commissioner Lear favored leaving them if they were willing to serve. Motion by Commissioner Lear, seconded by Commissioner Sims, to approve the two recommendations for reappointment if they are willing to serve. Motion carried unanimously. ACTS Advisory Board: County Manager Lucas noted that two were eligible for reappointment and Ms. Taylor-Lisenby has served two terms. Commissioner Jones asked her residence with County Manager Lucas stating Chesterfield but she works with Smart Start. Commissioner Lear nominated Ms. Bernice Bennett to replace Ms. Taylor- Lisenby. Commissioner Jones seconded the nomination and asked if Ms. Bennett was serving on other Boards. The Clerk pointed out that Ms. Bennett was already serving on the ACTS Advisory Board. Motion was withdrawn. Commissioner Jones asked the names of those up for reappointment with County Manager Lucas answering Ms. Dixie Allen, Ms. Lula Jackson and Ms. Cindy Taylor-Lisenby. County Manager Lucas noted that two are eligible for reappointment based on the fact that they have served only one term and Ms. Taylor-Lisenby has served two terms already. Motion by Commissioner Jones, seconded by Commissioner Streater, to postpone this until the November meeting. Commissioner Streater asked the Clerk to check with the Transportation Board to see if they have anyone they would like to serve. The Clerk stated that they would like to see Ms. Allen and Ms. Jackson reappointed and she was of the understanding that it was a requirement of this Board to have a representative from Smart Start. Commissioner Streater then asked the Clerk to check with Bonnie Morgan or Johnnie Pettiford to see if one of them would be willing to serve. Commissioner Sims stated that agreeing to postpone had nothing to do with reappointment Dixie Allen or Lula Jackson as both were fine ladies. Motion carried unanimously. Manager’s Report: County Manager Lucas stated that at a previous meeting the Board asked the County Attorney to look into the certificate of need for the cancer treatment center. County Manager Lucas reported that the county was not eligible to appeal. County Manager Lucas reported that the ROCC group from Charlotte has now decided that they are not going to appeal. Commissioner Jones asked the theory at law that we don’t have standing. County Attorney Bower answered that by regulations the county is not an injured person. County Attorney Bower noted that the county was not a petitioner and had the ROCC appealed we could have filed a motion to intervene but we don’t have the ability to appeal ourselves. County Manager Lucas reported that the prime time ambulance approved in September was now in service and fully operational. County Manager Lucas stated that they met last week to work out a few operational issues and things were flowing fairly well. County Manager Lucas stated that he was astonished when he saw the EMS ambulance parked in front of the Rescue Squad the other night and they were actually working together. County Manager Lucas stated that this only enhances our level of service by having three ambulances available. Commissioner Sims stated that if they ever need a place to park an ambulance Polkton would be glad to help out. Commissioner Concerns: Commissioner Jones reported that the YMCA goes forward. Commissioner Jones stated that the YMCA had a committee visit here last week to interview various citizens and would return for additional interviews. Commissioner Jones stated that he hopes the YMCA will say they are ready to come to Anson County. Closed Session: Motion by Commissioner Streater, seconded by Commissioner Sims, to go into closed session pursuant to North Carolina General Statutes 143- 318.11(a)(5) to establish or instruct the staff or agent concerning the negotiation of the price and terms of a contract concerning the acquisition of real property located in Anson County, North Carolina and North Carolina General Statutes 143-318.11(a)(6) to consider the qualifications, competence, performance, condition of appointment of a public officer or employee or prospective public officer or employee and North Carolina General Statutes 143-318.11(a)(3) to consult with the Attorney to protect the attorney-client privilege.
