To: Macon County Board of Commissioners
Derek Roland, County Manager
Lori Hall, Finance Director
From: Mike Decker
Date: May 8, 2014
Re: Amendments to Macon County Personnel Policy
Message:
I am seeking your approval of amendments to the county’s personnel policy. First,
under our current employee benefit structure, it is possible to continue to be a member
of the county’s group health insurance plan with 15, 25 and 30 year levels of service,
pending certain requirements. Also, for those at the 30-year level, their spouse can also
participate in the plan as long as the retiree remains eligible.

In talking with the Finance Director, it is apparent that the county needs to consider a
change to this portion of the policy as it pertains to our ability to sustain the particular
benefit in some form.

Therefore, I am suggesting that a portion of “Article VI, Section 2. Hospitalization and
Medical Benefits,” be revised as follows:

“Employees who are members of the group health insurance plan and retire with a minimum of thirty
(30) years of service as determined by the North Carolina Local Government Employee Retirement
System (LGERS) and who are qualified to receive service retirement from LGERS will be eligible to
continue as a member of the group regardless of age, or until the retiree ceases to be eligible as a
retired employee as specified under the Group’s Retirement Program.”
This change will do a number of things, including: (1) removing the 15-year and 25-year
stipulations from the policy, (2) removing the participation of eligible spouses for those
with 30 years of service and (3) giving the county an “out” if the individual retires but
then goes to work full-time for another entity participating in LGERS. Pending the
board’s approval, the changes would go into effect on July 1, 2014 and would affect any
employee hired or re-hired on or after that date. All regular/permanent employees
currently in the system would fall under the existing provisions of the policy, regardless
of whether they are vested under LGERS.

For your information, we currently have 46 retirees (and six spouses) covered under the
group health insurance plan, which results in an annual cost to the county of $302,640,
and that number is only going to increase as we have more employees retire who meet
the qualifications to continue as a member of the group.

I have checked with Mike Norris with Wayah Employee Benefits, and this amendment to
the personnel policy will not affect the county’s “grandfather status” under the
Affordable Care Act.

I am also asking for a minor change to “Article VIII, Section 2. Resignation” of the policy,
as follows, with the additional language in bold underlined print:

“Any employee who desires to terminate his/her employment with the County must
give written notice to his immediate supervisor or department head two (2) weeks prior
to his/her last intended day of employment. An employee who does not provide the
required notification shall have recorded on his/her service record that he/she resigned
without giving proper notice, and shall forfeit payment for accumulated annual leave
and longevity pay unless the notice is waived upon recommendation of the department
head, Human Resources Director and approved by the County Manager.”

If the individual in question, due to their actions, is forfeiting any annual leave, it is the
recommendation of Human Resources and Finance that they forfeit any longevity pay as
well. However, unless it is specified in the policy, we are obligated to pay it. If approved,
the effective date of this change would also be July 1, 2014.

Thank you for your consideration of these items.

told the board members that he had prepared an amendment to the county’s

hereby made a part of these minutes.

PUBLIC HEARING ON SECTION 5317 NEW FREEDOM PROGRAM:
Chairman Corbin called the public hearing to order at 6:16 p.m. and
recognized the County Manager, who explained the details of this particular
Macon County Transit Department program, which is primarily focused on
providing bus stop shelters for Transit’s Mountain Gem route. The purpose of
the “New Freedom” program is to encourage new services and facility
improvements to address the transportation needs of persons with disabilities
that go beyond those required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The County Manager said the local share of $1,700 would be used toward the
installation of four bus shelters that were purchased for the transit department
last year. In addition, $19,688 will provide a 50 percent local share in
operating funds that will establish another route for the Mountain Gem.
However, those funds will not have to come from the county, as they will be
used from another grant source to provide the local match. The County
Manager said that for $1,700, the county can increase the department’s level of
service while adding no additional employees, adding that the county will
dissolve the route if funds are not available in subsequent years. He asked the
board to consider a resolution regarding the program, noting that it will not
take effect until the 2014-15 Fiscal Year. Following questions from the board
members, Chairman Corbin closed the public hearing at 6:23 p.m. Upon a
motion by Commissioner Beale, seconded by Commissioner Tate, the board
voted unanimously to fund the $1,700 in the Transit budget for FY 2014-15
and to adopt the “Public Transportation Program Resolution” as presented. A
copy of the resolution is attached (Attachment 2) and is hereby made a part of
these minutes.

BOARD OF ELECTIONS BUDGETARY MATTERS: Luke Bateman, the

board’s consideration of a budget amendment in the amount of $41,458. The
discussion turned to the status of Kim Bishop, the director of the Board of
Elections, who has been on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of
an investigation into the apparent misappropriation of departmental funds.
Mr. Bateman told the commissioners that Ms. Bishop’s status remains in the
hands of the state Board of Elections. He explained that the bulk of the funds
outlined in the amendment were for election expenses directly associated with
the May 6
th
primary. Commissioner Higdon questioned Mr. Bateman as to
when the investigation would end, and he responded that the local board
members are awaiting an answer along with everyone else. The Finance
Director explained that there is approximately $104,000 remaining in the
county’s contingency fund from which the money could be taken, adding that
the elections department must be made whole from a budgetary standpoint.
Commissioner Beale made a motion to approve the budget amendment as
presented, which appropriates $15,089 in election fees and transfers $41,458
from contingency to the Board of Elections budget, and the motion was
seconded by Commissioner Tate. During further discussion, Mr. Bateman

recreation, first asked the board to drop the word “Facilities” from the title and
shorten it to the Robert C. Carpenter Community Building. Upon a motion by
Commissioner Beale, seconded by Commissioner Haven, the board voted
unanimously to approve the request. Mr. Adams then presented some photos
showing how the new signage for the building would appear, and he noted that

plans call for SCC to give up a classroom, with the county to give up one room
as well. The lease for the current DWS office on Harrison Avenue expires on

MACON TRACS PILOT PROGRAM WITH MACON COUNTY SCHOOLS: For
the board’s consideration, the County Attorney presented a proposed license
agreement between the county, the Macon County Board of Education and
Macon TRACS, Inc. Under the agreement, the county-owned property near
South Macon School would be used by Macon TRACS for the purpose of
“conducting equine therapy practices.” Macon TRACS is a local non-profit
entity that provides equine assisted activities and therapies to special needs
adults and children. The Board of Education had approved a pilot program
submitted by Macon TRACS, but with the school property owned by the
county, the commission’s permission was also needed. The County Attorney
recommended approval of the agreement subject to the necessary insurance
information being provided. Describing it as “a wonderful program,”
Commissioner Beale made a motion to approve the license agreement
contingent upon the required insurance being provided, and the motion was
seconded by Commissioner Haven, and all favored. A copy of the license
agreement is attached (Attachment 6) and is hereby made a part of these
minutes.

with Commissioner Beale commenting that the amount coming to the county
“is $250,000 short of what it should be.” A copy of the application for the

adopt a “Resolution of the County of Macon, North Carolina Declaring the
Intent of the County of Macon, North Carolina to Reimburse Itself for Capital
Expenditures Incurred in Connection with Certain Improvements to the Parker
Meadows Property from the Proceeds of a Certain Installment Purchase

resolution is attached (Attachment 10) and is hereby made a part of these
minutes. (3) Capital Project Ordinance: The Finance Director asked that the
board adopt a Capital Project Ordinance for the Parker Meadows Recreation
Complex, with the $3.3-million project to be funded by installment financing
proceeds, a PARTF grant and a transfer from the General Fund. Upon a
motion by Commissioner Tate, seconded by Commissioner Beale, the board
voted unanimously to adopt the Capital Project Ordinance as presented, a copy
of which is attached (Attachment 11) and is hereby made a part of these
minutes. (4) Budget Amendment #132: The Finance Director presented the
board with a budget amendment that would appropriate $500,000 from the

Parker Meadows Recreational Complex, in keeping with the board’s desire to
use $500,000 from fund balance in the current fiscal year and another
$500,000 from fund balance in Fiscal Year 2014-15 to help fund the project.

time to address an issue regarding a piece of property near the Little Tennessee

Little Tennessee (LTLT), but said that there were questions regarding legal
matters, which he wanted to direct to the County Attorney. There was also

inclusion of a representative from the Clean Water Trust Fund. This was

management along the greenway. No action was taken.

requested time to discuss a matter involving the county’s Tourism Development
Committee (TDC) as it relates to the application and collection of the tourism
tax as it applies to vacation rental properties. As liaison to the TDC,
Commissioner Haven said he was asked to bring to the board’s attention the
need to contact those who have such properties to ensure they understand the
obligation to pay the 3 percent tourism tax on those rentals. A lengthy
discussion followed, much of which centered on the issue of how to “police”
this matter. The board asked the County Manager to speak with a Finance
Department employee about sending out reminder letters to those who have
these rentals listed. Commissioner Haven also brought up questions about the
use of TDC funds to pay for fireworks displays, but the board deferred the
matter back to the TDC.

CONSENT AGENDA: Upon a motion by Commissioner Haven, seconded by
Commissioner Tate, the following items on the consent agenda were
unanimously approved: Minutes – Approved the minutes from the March 11
and March 18, 2014 meetings. Budget amendments – Approved the following
budget amendments: #119 for the Department of Social Services to

MACON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
CONTINUED SESSION
APRIL 29, 2014
MINUTES

Chairman Corbin reconvened the meeting at 6:02 p.m. in the commission
boardroom as recessed from the April 8, 2014 regular meeting. All board
members, the County Manager, Deputy Clerk, Finance Director, County
Attorney, members of the news media and interested citizens were present.
Chairman Corbin explained that the primary purpose of the meeting was to
hold two public hearings and to consider other items of business.

PUBLIC HEARING ON FINANCING OF PARKER MEADOWS RECREATIONAL
PARK: Chairman Corbin called the public hearing to order at 6:03 p.m. and
asked the County Attorney to explain the need for it. The County Attorney said
that the board is considering borrowing $1.8-million over a 10-year period at
an interest rate of 2.29 percent to finance improvements to the Parker
Meadows Recreational Complex, with the debt to be repaid in semi-annual
payments and with the county granting a lien on the 48 acres located at 1020
Maxwell Home Road in Franklin. Following a review of additional details
regarding the installment purchase contract, he noted the county was required
to hold the public hearing and Chairman Corbin opened the floor for
comments. Chuck Norton told the board that he was very involved in Little
League baseball and asked the commissioners to support the project. Ryan
Raby, the varsity baseball coach at Franklin High School, said the new
complex will be a huge asset to the school’s baseball program. “We’re investing
in our children, how can that be wrong?” he asked the board. Carl Barkman
said he has a grandson that plays baseball and cited the need for practice
fields and the new recreational park. Chairman Corbin closed the public
hearing at 6:09 p.m. and noted that no action on the part of the board was
needed at this time.

PUBLIC HEARING ON PROPOSED SCHEDULE OF VALUES: Chairman
Corbin called the public hearing to order at 6:11 p.m. He explained that no
one from the public signed up to speak, and recognized Tax Administrator
Richard Lightner to make comments. Mr. Lightner said the schedule of values
contains every detail and “ranges of prices” that will be used to appraise real
property in the county for the upcoming 2015 revaluation. Following the
public hearing, Mr. Lightner said he would be back before the board at its May
13
th
regular meeting requesting the commission to accept the schedule of
values. He then took the board through the remainder of the process, which
ends on June 11
th
with the last day to appeal items in the schedule to the
state’s Property Tax Commission. Mr. Lightner answered questions from the
board members, and told them that a lot of property in the county is
decreasing in value, and while there will be “winners and losers” following the
revaluation, the county stands to lose more than $2-billion in real property
value. Richard Melvin then asked to make some comments, not particularly
about the schedule itself but about the appeal process and the use of
appraisals within it, saying that it should be more flexible based in part on the
age of the property owner’s own appraisal. Mr. Lightner pointed out that this is
illegal under the state Machinery Act, and a brief debate ensued. Following
further comments, Chairman Corbin closed the hearing at 6:35 p.m. No action
was necessary.

MACON MULTIPURPOSE JUVENILE HOME LEASE RENEWAL: The County
Manager explained that the North Carolina Department of Public Safety was
seeking a renewal of the lease for the Macon Multipurpose Juvenile Home
located at 1950 Lakeside Drive in Franklin. The term of the lease is for one
year, with the option of two additional one-year renewals, at a cost of $1 per
year, beginning on June 1, 2014 and ending May 31, 2015. The County
Manager recommended renewal of the lease agreement, and the County
Attorney noted a memo to the board from Chuck Mallonee, the area
administrator for Adult Correction and Juvenile Justice for the state.
Commissioner Beale encouraged the other board members to visit the facility,
and noted that it is the only one of its kind west of Raleigh. Upon a motion by
Commissioner Beale, seconded by Commissioner Haven, the board voted
unanimously to approve the lease agreement as presented. A copy of the lease
agreement (Attachment 1) and the memo from Mr. Mallonee (Attachment 2) are
attached and are hereby made a part of these minutes.

DECLARATION OF RESTRICTIVE COVENANTS FOR PARKER MEADOWS
DEED: Chairman Corbin said that the County Attorney has drafted a
document regarding some necessary language that must be included in the
deed for the Parker Meadows property in order to receive the $500,000 in
funding from the state Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF). The County
Attorney explained that the county closed on the property before it was certain

it would receive a PARTF grant, and now a “Declaration of Restrictive
Covenants” must be attached to the deed, as follows, “This property was
acquired with State financial assistance from the North Carolina Parks and
Recreation Trust Fund and, pursuant to a contractual requirement, the
Property and/or any part thereof may not be converted to other than public
recreation use (whether by transfer, sale or in any other manner) without
approval of the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural
Resources.” The County Attorney recommended that the board approve the
Declaration of Restrictive Covenants as presented, and to consult with Lou Ann
Bryan with PARTF as to timing of the execution of the document. Upon a
motion by Commissioner Beale, seconded by Commissioner Haven, the
document was approved as presented, a copy of which is attached (Attachment
3) and is hereby made a part of these minutes.

RESOLUTION REGARDING INTERLOCAL CONTRACT FOR COOPERATIVE
PURCHASING: The County Attorney explained the legal aspects of joining a
purchasing group, in this case the Keystone Purchasing Network, noting that
Parks and Recreation Director Seth Adams is looking to purchase a number of
lights for the new ball fields at Parker Meadows. This network has the
particular lights the county needs at a discounted price, and the County
Attorney recommended that the board approve a “Resolution of the Macon
County Board of Commissioners Authorizing Entry into Interlocal Contract for
Cooperative Purchasing with Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit” for this
purpose, and to execute the membership application form as soon as possible.
Upon a motion by Commissioner Tate, seconded by Commissioner Higdon, the
board voted unanimously to adopt the resolution as presented, a copy of which
is attached (Attachment 4) and is hereby made a part of these minutes.

CLOSED SESSION: At 6:48 p.m., upon a motion by Commissioner Beale,
seconded by Commissioner Haven, the board voted unanimously to go into
closed session for the purpose of consulting with the attorney under NCGS
143-318.11(a)(3). Just prior to entering the closed session, Chairman Corbin
announced that the board would have a special meeting on Thursday, May 1,
2014 at the Macon County Heritage Center at the historic Cowee School
beginning at 6:30 p.m. in order to hold a joint meeting with the Town of
Franklin Board of Aldermen and the Town of Highlands Board of
Commissioners. At 7:42 p.m., upon a motion by Commissioner Tate, seconded
by Commissioner Haven, the board voted unanimously to come out of closed
session and return to open session. No action was taken.

MACON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
CALLED MEETING
MAY 1, 2014
MINUTES


Chairman Corbin called to order the joint meeting with the Town of Franklin
Board of Aldermen and the Town of Highlands Board of Commissioners at 6:32
p.m. at the Macon County Heritage Center at the historic Cowee School. All
board members (with the exception of Commissioner Higdon), the County
Manager, Deputy Clerk, Finance Director and County Attorney were present.
All of the Franklin aldermen, Mayor Bob Scott, Interim Town Manager Summer
Woodard and Town Clerk/Finance Officer Janet Anderson were present. All of
the Highlands commissioners (with the exception of Brian Stiehler), Mayor
Patrick Taylor and Town Manager Bob Frye were present. Also present were
members of the news media and interested citizens.

Following a welcome by Chairman Corbin and an invocation by Commissioner
Tate, the board members shared a meal together. Chairman Corbin
reconvened the meeting at 7:08 p.m., and explained that after the reports from
each government, Eric Moberg and Bill Dyar would give a report on the efforts
involving the heritage center followed by walking tours around the old school.

Chairman Corbin recognized Franklin Mayor Bob Scott, who gave a report on
the town’s activities and accomplishments. Mr. Scott said the $6-million
renovation of the town’s sewer plant is complete. He said the town has a desire
to have discussions with the county regarding the gazebo area on the town
square. He also noted that the eastbound bridge over the Little Tennessee
River will be replaced and plans call for some type of pedestrian access. He
said the town would also like to work in conjunction with the county regarding
economic development efforts. In closing, he introduced Summer Woodard, the
town’s interim manager.

Highlands Mayor Patrick Taylor spoke next, and said that the town will have to
drain Lake Sequoyah in the near future and will install new water intakes. He
said the dam there is more than 80 years old and is in need of some repairs.
He also noted that the town will switch to a bleach process to treat its drinking
water. A “major donation” of $1-milllion from Art and Angela Williams will
allow the town to turn its swimming pool into a year-round facility by enclosing
the pool, and some funds will be used to replace the gym floor at the town’s
recreation park. Mayor Taylor closed by saying the town board may consider a
tax increase that would be used for recreation.

Chairman Corbin focused his comments on the latest steps in the development
of the Parker Meadows Recreational Complex, noting that the county planned
to “occupy” the park in the summer of 2015. He then introduced the County
Manager, adding that Mr. Roland was “doing a fantastic job.” The County
Manager discussed the current budget process, saying that the county was
“entering some uncertain times” with the upcoming revaluation process. He
noted that county department heads have “heeded the call” to trim their
budgets, and that he will present a proposed budget with no tax increase later
this month. Commissioner Beale welcomed everyone to Cowee School, which
he said was “worth saving for future generations.” Commissioner Tate pointed
out that with the upcoming property revaluation, the county is anticipating
losing $2-billion in value. Commissioner Haven offered his congratulations to
Ms. Woodard.

Chairman Corbin recognized Mr. Dyar and Mr. Moberg, who teamed up to give
the board members an overview of recent and planned activities at the heritage
center, with Mr. Moberg pointing out that the center has received $70,000 in
grants and has benefited from 1,500 volunteer hours in the past 15 months.
Bobby Kuppers presented an overview of the center’s 2014 concert series and
thanked the commissioners for their support of the center, stating that he
believes the center will eventually be self-sufficient.

Highlands Town Commissioner Eric Pierson asked that the county consider a
change in the election process by which voters in the three individual districts
would choose their representative for the county commission, at least in the
primary, as opposed to the current countywide method.

MACON COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
CALLED MEETING
MAY 5, 2014
MINUTES

Chairman Corbin called the joint meeting with the Macon County Board of
Education to order at 4:22 p.m. at the Iotla Valley Elementary School. All board
members (with the exception of Commissioner Haven), the County Manager,
Deputy Clerk, Finance Director and County Attorney were present. All of the
members of the Board of Education, Superintendent Dr. Chris Baldwin,
Finance Director Angie Cook and Administrative Assistant/Board Clerk Renee
Burt were present, along with a number of other Macon County Schools central
office staff. Also present were members of the news media. Jim Breedlove,
chairman of the Board of Education, also called the school board’s meeting to
order.

Chairman Corbin explained that as the commissioners were awaiting the
presentation of the County Manager’s proposed budget next week, this meeting
would be to receive information only.

Dr. Baldwin opened with brief remarks regarding Iotla Valley School, noting
that it presently serves 380 students, and thanked the commission for its
support for the facility. He then spoke to what he called the “negativity” that
currently surrounds public education, and pointed out the support of the
county in light of that negativity. He told the commissioners that it cost
$41,300,000 to operate the Macon County School system last year, and with
4,400 students that results in a cost of about $9,000 per student per year. In
other terms, that equates to $52 per day per child, and he said $12 of that
amount comes from the county. In contrast, the state of North Carolina
spends $82 per day to house an inmate in a correctional facility, he noted.

NOTE: Commissioner Haven joined the meeting at 4:29 p.m.

The two boards and staff members then reviewed a draft of the school system’s
2014-2015 current expense budget in detail, with Dr. Baldwin highlighting
specific increases or decreases in certain line items. One topic of discussion
centered around the state’s proposal regarding 7.1 percent pay increases for
teachers with less than five years’ experience. Macon County has 37 locally
paid teachers, down from 54 a year ago. Overall, the school system is
requesting a county appropriation of $7,839,090 for the upcoming school year
– approximately $500,000 more than the current fiscal year.

The County Manager pointed out that the commissioners called for no increase
in the county’s tax rate for the new fiscal year, and with the property
revaluation looming, he had asked county departments to hold the line on
spending. He reported they have done so, and the county is looking at a $1.1-
million decrease in the budget for 2014-15. Dr. Baldwin noted that there could
be a possible cut in the state allotment to the school systems following the
upcoming “short session” of the state General Assembly.

Dr. Baldwin then reviewed the school system’s employee counts by
classification, pointing out a reduction of 22 positions overall from the 2012-13
school year to the current one.

NOTE: Board of Education Chairman Jim Breedlove left the meeting at 5:13
p.m.

Dr. Baldwin went on to review the system’s capital outlay requests for 2014-15
by individual school, which total $700,450 for the “urgent” ones. Of particular
concern is the sewer treatment plant at Nantahala School, which is at the end
of its useful life.

The final item for discussion centered on a technology request of $430,000,
which is over and above the $1.5-million the county recently provided to the
school system to “refresh” its desktop and laptop PCs as well as network
infrastructure devices. However, school officials explained that the state has
severely reduced the textbook allotment to schools, and will now only fund
digital textbooks, but not the devices on which to “run” them. So, the system is
going to spend the remainder of the $1.5-million to purchase some 400 iPads
to be used by high school students throughout the county.

In closing, the County Manager said the school system was requesting just over
$1.6-million more than the current year appropriation.


Minutes

With no other business, and upon a motion by Commissioner Beale, seconded
by Commissioner Tate, the board voted unanimously to adjourn at 5:44 p.m.,
with the Board of Education likewise adjourning.
