citizens and staff. He stated they looked at 28 sites and taken comments from cities and the public.

He identified options for three sites and pointed out the positives and negatives for each site. He also

Tagged Passions:sites

explained the option for the County to end providing services and allowing the private sector to

Tagged Passions:services

provide the service. Boe reviewed the private sector options available, costs and private sector drop

off locations. He stated all cities were providing some options and the County is giving money to

cities and townships to assist with the costs. He indicated, in other metro counties, it was a mix

Tagged Passions:Public Transit

between allowing the private sector to handle vs handling it themselves.

Boe explained he was asking for direction to transition to end the County s collection of brush,

leaves and grass or to transition to a new location and guidance as to that new location.

Maluchnik moved, Ische seconded, to begin a transition to end collection of brush, leaves and grass

effective January 1, 2019, and to continue to allow staff to look for a no cost soft search effort until

that time.

The Board acknowledged they were looking for a no/low cost site; recognized residents preferred a

Tagged Passions:recognition

private sector option and cities wanted to have input on the location. They also recognized the

Tagged Passions:recognition

Arboretum had a need; that residents want collaboration and this is still going to be an issue for the

east side. They noted the transition would allow cities and citizens to look for other options.

On vote taken on above motion, all voted aye.

The Board was asked to consider CUP requests for solar gardens.

Chair Degler acknowledged the Board had received all of the attorney and citizen letters that had

Tagged Passions:legal

advised by the County Attorney on legal issues. He stated they were familiar with the facts and the

Tagged Passions:legal

opinions of the parties. He asked that statements be kept brief and not repeat what has already been

submitted. He acknowledged the Board also had received numerous emails and phone messages

related to the solar gardens.

system. He indicated pursuant to the Board s direction on February 13th, an order for denial was

prepared. He also noted pursuant to the Board s direction at the February 27th meeting, the applicant

included a new northwest option. He stated the newest layout keeps the garden the furthest away

from the Appaloosa neighborhood and best addresses the concerns they have heard. Schmitt stated
