County Commissioners’ Meeting Minutes
Wednesday, June 24, 2009

         Bonnie Miller said there are complaints about curbs being replaced in the City of which Streetscape Enhancement money was used.
Mr. Cowhey told Ms. Miller that the County does not engineer City projects, therefore, having no say on how the projects are done.

          Mark Hiester, Noelle Fortna and Sara Gibson thanked the Board of Commissioners for the Municipal Transportation Grant award for
Mount Joy Borough, East Cocalico Township and Rapho Township.

           Commissioner Lehman said the grant awards are very well disbursed throughout the County, and the process shows we are doing a good
job with that.

           Commissioner Stuckey congratulated the recipients and thanked the members who reviewed the applications.


                                                            RESOLUTION NO. 48 OF 2009

           On motion of Commissioner Martin, seconded by Commissioner Lehman;

            WHEREAS, The Board of County Commissioners charged the Lancaster County Planning Commission with developing a Comprehensive
Plan for the County; and
            WHEREAS, The Comprehensive Plan includes numerous policies, goals, and objectives related to energy efficiency and conservation,
including, but not limited to, the establishment of compact development patterns and multi-modal transportation systems, the preservation of historic
buildings, and the use of green infrastructure such as street trees and green roofs for their ecological functions; and
           WHEREAS, The County owns and operates multiple buildings including three office buildings, a prison and a public safety training center;
and
            WHEREAS, Each of the municipalities within the County (one city, eighteen boroughs, and forty-one townships) owns and maintains over
700,000 square feet of buildings including municipal offices, meeting facilities, recreation centers, public service buildings (e.g. police, water and
sewer), etc.; and
           WHEREAS, Buildings account for 30 percent of annual energy consumption and 60 percent of electricity used in the United States; and
            WHEREAS, According to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Energy Start Fast Facts, 30 percent of energy in buildings is used
inefficiently or unnecessarily; and
           WHEREAS, The transportation sector is a major source of energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; and
           WHEREAS, LED traffic signals consume approximately 80-90 percent less energy than traditional incandescent traffic signals; and
         WHEREAS, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, Public Law 111-5, appropriates funding for the Department of
Energy (DOE) to issue/award formula-based grants to units of local government under the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant Program;
and
           WHEREAS, The County of Lancaster is eligible for a formula-based grant in the amount of $3,795,900; and
           WHEREAS, The preparation of an Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy is required at the time of application.
          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE LANCASTER COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS, That the Board
hereby adopts the Lancaster County Energy Efficiency and Conservation Strategy as its guide to energy efficiency and conservation in furtherance of
the goals and objectives of the Lancaster County Comprehensive Plan and does hereby also resolve to apply for the Energy Efficiency and
Conservation Block Grant for which the County is eligible.
           James Cowhey, Maggie Weidinger and Keith Harner explained to the Board of Commissioners how the grant money will be used for
projects in transportation and energy audits in municipalities, information technology and facilities management. Mr. Cowhey told the Board of
Commissioners that it was a team effort to apply for funding for energy efficiency programs.
            Commissioner Martin said everyone did a great job in a short amount of time by to prepare the grant application, and we are going to do our
best to apply the dollars to help save local tax dollars, especially in light of future energy costs. He continued to say that non-profits and municipalities
will realize some of the savings. Commissioner Martin said municipalities, nonprofits and ourselves will benefit from the money that has been
awarded.

            Commissioner Lehman asked if we will have flexibility to redirect funds to other projects if priorities change? Mr. Cowhey and Ms. Gattis
said there is flexibility. Commissioner Lehman said since energy rate caps are coming off in 2010, the timing could not be better to give us a chance to
maximize our facilities efficiency. The Board of Commissioners thanked everyone who worked on the grant application.

           Bonnie Miller asked if the energy audits will be outsourced. Mr. Cowhey said it will be out sourced because that specialty is not available
at the County through a bidding process. Ms. Miller asked if 150 N. Queen Street could be made geo-thermal? Mr. Harner said that system cannot be
used at 150 N. Queen Street.

           Motion passed unanimously.

                                                                     - continued -

           Motion passed unanimously.

           Bill Bonanno told the Board of Commissioners that we should still have an in house engineer and the Prison Board should meet more than
once a month since there are important issues at the County Prison. Mr. Bonnanno asked questions about building a larger prison. Commissioner
Stuckey told him no decision has been made to build a larger prison. The Commissioners thanked Mr. Bonanno for his interest.

            Bonnie Miller asked if those incarcerated at the Prison and the Youth Intervention Center could be used for outside work detail on County
farms? Commissioner Martin said juveniles cannot be used in work release, but we have LANCO volunteers who are at high privilege status at the
County Prison who are sent out to help, i.e. the parks. Bruce Clark offered to volunteer his services to help with overcrowding solutions at the Prison
rather than building a larger Prison. Commissioner Martin said the Board is not settling with the idea of building a larger prison.


           On motion of Commissioner Martin, seconded by Commissioner Lehman, the meeting was adjourned at 10:45 a.m.

           Motion passed unanimously.

                                                                   Respectfully submitted,
