WAKE COUNTY GANG PREVENTION PARTNERSHIP

Chairman Bryan recognized Gibbie Harris, Community Health Director, to present information on the Wake County Gang Prevention Partnership. Ms. Harris reported that at the request of Alizanza Latina Pro-Education en Salud, an advisory group of Latino leaders, Wake County Human Services convened the Gang Task Force in the spring of 2003. The initial purpose of the Task Force was to assess the extent of gang activity in Wake County and to determine what efforts might be needed to address the issue. This group evolved into the Wake County Gang Prevention Partnership consisting of representation from over thirty different agencies, community-based organizations and law enforcement.

Chief Perlov appeared before the Board and reported on gang prevention activities in the City of Raleigh. She stated that gang activity was different from drug and other activities in the community and that last year the City Council provided funding for a gang unit for educational and intervention purposes. She also mentioned work on establishing a gang prevention hotline and concerns about graffiti and the Graffiti Team dedicated to removing it as quickly possible.

Sheriff Donnie Harrison also appeared before the Board and talked about gang prevention activities in the County, the Department’s work with the City of Raleigh and agencies throughout the State. He noted the impact on the jail population, the shortage of manpower to deal with the problem, and that the problem will not be resolved through “arrests.” He also emphasized the importance of education and partnerships, including the Wake County Gang Prevention Partnership.

Ms. Harris concluded the report indicating that the Prevention Partnership would continue to work with all municipalities and to look at developing a comprehensive plan to deal with gang activity in Wake County; and that the recommendations and strategies would be presented to the Board of Commissioners in late October 2005 for review/endorsement before being released and shared with all communities in the County. Ms. Harris also provided information on the first gang prevention hotline in the State (919-256-0919) and for more information, www.gangsorus.com.

Following a brief question and answer period, the Commissioners received the report as presented.

THREE-YEAR CONTRACT WITH BELLSOUTH
TO PROVIDE MANAGED NETWORK VPN SERVICES TO SUPPORT
THE COUNTY’S COMPUTER AIDED DISPATCH REMOTE FACILITIES NETWORK

In 2004 the two municipalities of Apex and Holly Springs requested remote CAD dispatch capability to the 911 Emergency Communication Center (ECC) CAD network. In May 2004, the Wake County Information Services Department along with the 911 ECC and City of Raleigh technical staff created a network designed for the CAD remote dispatch project. This project involves four sites: the two hosts sites primary 911 ECC on Hargett Street and the backup 911 ECC on Barwell Road, and the two remote sites in Apex and Holly Springs.

In January 2005 BellSouth proposed their Managed Network VPN service for connectivity from the two host sites to the two municipal remote dispatch facilities. The BellSouth managed network service will operate 24x7x365 with minimal downtime and will ensure high availability.

The cost of this network will be split equally between the two municipalities of Apex and Holly Springs: $3,317.03 per month or $119,413.08 over the three-year period.

Upon motion of Commissioner Webb, seconded by Commissioner Gardner, the Board unanimously approved the multi-year contract with BellSouth to provide network connections, management and maintenance for four sites comprising the CAD remote facilities network and authorized the County Manager to execute contracts on behalf of Wake County for these services.

ACCEPTANCE OF FUNDS FOR PARTICIPATION IN THE FAMILIES
ACCESSING SERVICES THROUGH TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM

The North Carolina State Department of Health and Human Services develops policies consistent with state and federal laws regarding the delivery of social service programs administered through local counties. NC FAST is a program designed to improve the way the NC Department of Health and Human Services and County departments of Social Services provide services to families.

Two Wake County staff members have been selected to participate in an automation project for NC FAST due to their knowledge and experience in social services programs. For fiscal year 2005-06 it is expected that one staff member will participate six months and one staff member will participate eleven months. Once the program is fully implemented, families will have one-time communication of their information and needs, and benefits will be determined in an expeditious and consistent way from any place in the state.

The project start date is August 1, 2005 and could last for up to two years. The NC Department of Health and Human Services will reimburse Wake County up to $85,000 in State fiscal year 2006 for these staff salaries plus ten percent and benefits.

Upon motion of Commissioner Ward, seconded by Commissioner Jeffreys, the Board unanimously approved the acceptance of funds from the North Carolina State Department of Health and Human Services for participation in the Families Accessing Services through Technology Program.

WAKE COUNTY JUVENILE CRIME PREVENTION COUNCIL
ANNUAL PLAN AND CERTIFICATION FOR FISCAL YEAR 2006

The North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (NC DJJDP) requires each county to prepare an annual plan before releasing the county’s allocation of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention funds. For fiscal year 2006, Wake County will receive $1,137,260 in State funds from the NC DJJDP. The local match requirement is thirty percent which has been identified by each program as well as by the Human Services Department. No new county positions will be created by these funds.

Upon motion of Commissioner Gurley, seconded by Commissioner Council, the Board unanimously adopted the Wake County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council Annual Plan and the affixation of signatures on the appropriate forms.

REVISIONS TO THE WAKE COUNTY POSITION CLASSIFICATION PLAN

The County’s Position Classification Plan is monitored on an on-going basis to assure that the salaries remain competitive and that job classes appropriately reflect the types and levels of work performed by employees. On an annual basis, any changes to the plan are recommended to the Board of Commissioners for approval.

The Human Resources Department has evaluated sixty classifications via the one-third-market survey. Of the sixty surveyed, eleven are being recommended for a band revision based on the market data comparisons. Sixty regular employees will be affected by the band revisions. Pay is only changed when the new minimum of the band exceeds an employees’ current salary. Nine employees will receive such minimum adjustments, totaling $8,292,

Upon motion of Commissioner Gardner, seconded by Commissioner Ward, the Board unanimously approved the classification plan changes, effective July 16, 2005.

APPROVAL OF A NEW POSITION IN THE ADULT ECONOMIC SERVICES
COMMUNITY ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM FOR DISABLED ADULTS

The Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults is a Medicaid waiver program for disabled adults in need of nursing home care. Services can be provided to the client in his/her home to prevent the individual from being placed in a nursing home as long as it is cost effective to do so. Resources for Seniors is the lead agency for this program in Wake County. There are currently 276 active cases with an allocation of 420 slots and there are approximately 350 people on the waiting list for this program.

Currently a Medicaid case manager is co-located at Resources for Seniors to manage the Medicaid caseload but Wake County cannot utilize all of the slots allocated by the state without an additional position. The case manager position will be reimbursed 50 percent with State funds. Resources for Seniors will provide the county share of funding for this position in order to increase the caseload and utilization of the allocated slots.

Upon motion of Commissioner Webb, seconded by Commissioner Gardner, the Board unanimously approved the establishment of one case manager position to increase enrollment in the Community Alternatives Program for Disabled Adults program that serves disabled and senior adults.

REMEDIATION OF STONY HILL VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT, INC.
LEAKING UNDERGROUND FUEL STORAGE TANK

Chairman Bryan recognized Mr. John Rukavina, Public Safety Director, to give an overview of the remedial actions to address soil and groundwater contamination associated with the leakage of fuel from an underground fuel storage tank at the Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Department site.

Mr. Rukavina stated that Wake County contracts with Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. for fire protection services in the Stony Hill community in northern Wake County, and that Stony Hill conducts its fire protection operations from two fire stations.

The original Stony Hill Station 1 was built in the 1960’s on leased land and included in that construction was an underground fuel storage tank. Over time the Department used the tank for the storage of fuel for its fire apparatus. One of the conditions of the lease was that when Stony Hill no longer needed the land for a fire station, Stony Hill would be responsible for returning the land to its owner in an environmentally safe and compliant condition. In order to comply with this condition, once Stony Hill vacated the original Station 1, it contracted with Stratus Environmental Services for removal of the underground fuel storage tank that had been installed adjacent to the original Station 1. After removal of the tank, Stratus Environmental conducted tests in the tank area and found that over an undetermined period of time, there had been substantial leakage of fuel from the tank into soil and groundwater. Stony Hill notified the NC Department of Environment and Natural Resources, which in turn, issued a “Notice of Regulatory Requirements” outlining the actions required of Stony Hill as the responsible party for the contamination. At Stony Hill’s direction, Stratus Environmental developed a corrective remediation plan which was approved by NCDHNR on November 17, 2004.

On January 27, 2005, Stony Hill Fire Department representatives appeared before the Wake County Fire Commission and advised the Commission of the issue and the costs it had incurred on assessment and remediation actions through December 2004, and that the Department did not have the financial resources to complete the remediation action plan.

The Department asked that the Fire Commission recommend use of Fire Tax funds to complete the plan. The Fire Commission members raised a number of questions, and recommended that the Board of Commissioners be informed of the situation, and that the County Attorney/Budget Office be consulted to confirm Stony Hill’s legal responsibility and options for funding completion of the remediation plan.

As recommended by the Fire Commission, the Public Safety, Budget and Management staff, and Stony Hill Fire Department leaders met with the County Attorney and a list of key questions and answers was presented for consideration by the Board of Commissioners.

During discussion, the following persons presented general information and responded to questions from the Board:

Mr. Wayne Woodlief, 9100 Woodlief Road, Wake Forest
Mr. Ray Echevarria, Wake County Fire Marshal
Mr. Robert Maude, 11501 Pacesferry Road, Raleigh
Mr. Brian Boutin, 11112 Branding Iron Place, Wendell

Commissioner Webb, a member of the Fire Commission, commented on the staff recommendation and moved that the information
provided to the Board of Commissioners at today’s meeting be sent to the Fire Commission as information, and that this item be
taken up by the Board of Commissioners at its August 1, 2005 meeting. Commissioner Jeffreys seconded the motion.

Upon vote, by a show of hands, the motion failed (Commissioners Webb, Council and Jeffreys voted aye; Commissioners Ward,
Bryan, Gurley and Gardner voted nay)

Commissioner Ward then moved approval of staff recommendation, to authorize the County Manager to enter into a funding
agreement for remediation of a leaking underground fuel storage tank at Stony Hill Volunteer Fire Department, Inc. fire station site,
subject to approval by the County Attorney; and to allocate $270,000 in fiscal year 2006 from the Fire Tax Capital Improvement
Program to pay for start-up costs of the remediation project; and, if at such time the County discovers that the oil company has some
liability, it will be pursued. Commissioner Gurley seconded the motion.

Commissioner Gardner offered a proposal which was accepted as a friendly amendment: that in the future if the State chooses to get
involved that the money would come back to reimburse the County (Fire Tax Capital Improvement Program), and that any assets the
Stony Hill Fire Department has that they sell in the future would come back to help reimburse the County (Fire Tax Capital
Improvement Program) for this expense.

The Chairman then called for the vote, by a show of hands, and the motion passed with all Commissioners voting aye, except
Commissioner Jeffreys who voted nay.

AWARD OF CONTRACT FOR DEMOLITION AND ASBESTOS
ABATEMENT FOR COURTHOUSE SECOND FLOOR

In 1998, a comprehensive study was commissioned to identify the long-term facility needs of the 10th Judicial District. This study proposed continued long-term use of the Courthouse for judicial services. County and officials of the Raleigh Inspections Department reached agreement in 2003 on a detailed 10-year plan of phased improvements to assure the building can continue to be used as the main judicial center of Wake County. These improvements include removal of asbestos containing materials, installation of fire sprinkler and alarm systems, to bring the building into compliance with current high-rise building codes and to provide additional building accommodations as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Mechanical and electrical systems will also be upgraded or replaced.

On June 14, 2005, bids were received from contractors for the asbestos removal phase of the project in accordance with NC Statutes. Staff recommends that a construction contract be awarded to the lowest responsive bidder. Although the low bid exceeded funds budgeted by 23 percent for this specific contract, there is sufficient savings from the fifth floor project recently completed to cover the shortfall.

Upon motion of Commissioner Webb, seconded by Commissioner Gardner, the Board unanimously approved staff recommendation to award a contract for Courthouse 2nd Floor demolition and asbestos abatement in the amount of $751,322 to the firm of Demolition and Asbestos Removal Inc. of Raleigh.

WAKE COORDINATED TRANSPORTATION SERVICES GRANT REQUEST

The Job Access Reverse Commute grant is intended to expand coordinated transportation services and make available employment related transportation services to at risk populations. The “Job Access” portion of the grant assists people living in rural areas to reach job opportunities in suburban and urban areas. The “Reverse Commute” portion of the grant assists people living in urban areas to reach job opportunities in the suburbs. Wake County has been designated with an earmark for these funds in the amount of $767,700 pending submission of an application. The County has proposed to use these new grant funds for “Job Access” to expand the existing TRACS rural public transportation services.

Wake County is asking the NCDOT to submit this application to the Federal Transit Administration on behalf of Wake County. The grant is intended to leverage other grant sources in order to provide these services, and requires a 50 percent match. Wake County would draw $383,850 in funding from Federal Transit Administration in fiscal year 2005-2006 and an additional $383,850 in funding from Federal Transit Administration in fiscal year 2006-2007. The grant requires a 50 percent match each year, and the County has funding commitments from partners that exceed the requirement for each year of the period of performance.

Upon motion of Commissioner Ward, seconded by Commissioner Webb, the Board unanimously endorsed the Job Access Reverse Commute Grant application, and authorized the Chairman of the Board of Commissioners to sign the Resolution to Apply, Certifications and Assurances and affix the signatures of local officials as required.
