Aye: 5 Nay: 0 $I1(1tTl~i(~ VACATION/LOT 27, BLOCK 3, EAGANDALE CENTER INDUSTRIAL PARK #4 Mayor Egan introduced this item as a vacation of a utility easement on Lot 27, Block 3, Eagandale Center Industrial Park #4. Director of Public Works Colbert said that when this property was platted, it was platted with a drainage and utility easement but when the storm sewer facilities were installed with the development, they were not constructed within the easement dedication. Mr. Colbert said it has been necessary to vacate the old easement and replace it with easement property located over the existing storm sewer facility. Mr. Colbert said all affected property owners were notified, no objections had been received and staff has recommended favorable action. There was no one present in the audience to address the issue. Pawlenty moved, Gustafson seconded a motion to close the public hearing and vacate the utility easement as described over Lot 27, Block 3, Eagandale Center Industrial Park #4 and the Mayor and City Clerk be authorized to execute all related documents. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 PAGE 5/EAGAN CITY COUNCIL MINUTES April 2, 1991 FINAL ASSESSMENT HEARING (COVENTRY PASS ADDITION) Mayor Egan introduced this item as Project 566, Final Assessment Hearing (Coventry Pass Addition - Trunk Storm and Sanitary Sewer). City Administrator Hedges said that on March 5, the City Council received the final assessment roll for Project 566 and scheduled a public hearing to consider adoption the roll. Director of Public Works Colbert outlined the background and scope of this project. He said written objection had been submitted by Mr. Leonard Perron, the owner of Parcel 10-02400-010-79. Mr. Leonard Perron, of 4000 Dodd Road, said he did not object to paying the assessments on his single- family home, however, did object to the agricultural land assessment. He suggested the assessments be collected when the property is developed. Additional discussion surrounded the different types of deferred assessments that Mr. Perron could qualify for. While Mr. Perron agreed that he would be eligible for green acres status, he could not see the advantage of allowing the interest to continue to accrue each year. He said it would work well if he knew someone was interested in purchasing the property to develop it in the near future. Mayor Egan pointed out that while it was unfortunate that these large assessments often accrue to the larger parcels of property, costs are incurred by the City for these improvements. He said someone has to pay for such improvements and it is likely that if the property is appraised, the benefit to the property would be justified. Mr. Perron said he did not believe the assessments were too much but said he just didn't know how he was going to pay them. In answer to a question from the audience as to why the developer did not pay the assessments, Mayor Egan said that State statute provides for assessments to be spread among all benefitting properties. McCrea moved, Gustafson seconded a motion to close the public hearing and approve the final assessment roll for Project 566 (Coventry Pass Addition - Trunk Storm and Sanitary Sewer), noting a formal objection received from Leonard Perron, Parcel 10-02400-019-79, and authorize its certification to Dakota County. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 RESOLUTION/DAKOTA COUNTY SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT STRATEGY After brief introduction by Mayor Egan, City Administrator Hedges provided background on this item and went on to say that a workshop session had been scheduled for April 2 at 4:00 p.m. in conjunction with Dakota County. He said no formal action had been taken, but Dakota County presented information that had been gathered in the past several years regarding solid waste management. Mr. Hedges said after the County's presentation, they answered questions from the City Council. The item under consideration on this agenda, however, has to do with a resolution concerning the Dakota County solid waste management strategy. County Commissioner Don Chapdelaine then summarized what they had presented and hoped to accomplish in the workshop session. Beyond the burn facility, the Commissioner reiterated the County's commitment to recycling. Commissioner Chapdelaine then turned his attention to the resolution before the City Council. He apologized for not formally responding to the original resolution in February of 1990. He said the County could agree with all the points in the present resolution except the statement dealing with the moratorium on solid waste incinerators. Commissioner Chapdelaine said such a moratorium would create an impossible situation for the County Board and would create a burden on the people of Dakota County. He said the Dakota County burn facility had received closer scrutiny than any other similar facility in the United States. After Mayor Egan opened the meeting to comments from the public, Mr. Terry Davis, of 4895 Safari Pass, congratulated the City Council on taking time to listen to the County's presentation on the incinerator issue. PAGE 6/EAGAN CITY COUNCIL MINUTES April 2, 1991 He said the Dakota County Citizens Against Burning (DCCAB) would also like two hours to debate the County's position, however, was aware that the City Council did not wish to do that. He said he and any other DCCAB member present would be happy to answer any question on any point made by the County. Mr. Jack Mueller, 1903 Silver Bell Road; Mr. Tim Honsa, 3812 Country Creek Way; Mr. Pat Wigleitner, 4628 Kingsbury Drive; Mr. Mike Miller, Deer Hills Trail; Mr. Mark Knauf, 3634 Denmark; Mr. Bill Samson, 1033 Beatrice; Mr. Tom Nelson, 1450 Ponderosa; Mr. Michael Hager, 904 Sudberry Lane; Mr. Al Bachel, 1485 Lone Oak Road; Mr. Ray Curran, 4224 Sandstone; and Mr. Craig Kohler, 2073 Jade Lane all spoke in favor of the bum facility. Mr. Dave Evans of Apple Valley, and Mr. Michael Orange of West St. Paul, both members of the Dakota County Citizens Against Burning (DCCAB), spoke in opposition to the burn facility. Both urged alternatives and asked that the City Council support the resolution which included a moratorium on incinerators in the State of Minnesota. Discussion also ensued with the County and the DCCAB group taking different positions on the safety of the burn facility, especially those relating to dioxin and mercury contamination. Mayor Egan asked if 50 to 55 percent participation in recycling would eliminate the need for a burn facility. Mr. Barry Shady of the Dakota County staff said no and added that going from 30 percent recycling participation to 50 percent would constitute a major change. County officials categorized any participation above 50 percent as extraordinary. Councilmember McCrea then raised the issue of reductions in the funding for recycling. Dakota County Administrator Lyle Wray said his office was studying the cost and long-term funding for recycling. He said they expect a report to be completed in June. Councilmember McCrea said even if the burn facility proceeds, she hoped Dakota County would continue to recognize the importance of recycling. The City Council then discussed the resolution under consideration. While they agreed both the County and the DCCAB group presented convincing arguments, there was some question as to what any City Council action could or would do. Councilmember Gustafson said he was leaning toward reiterating support for the February 19, 1990 resolution and hoped that would remove the Council from the issue. Mayor Egan added that the DCCAB group and the County Board had been studying the issue for a number of years and expressed a certain degree of frustration at being in the awkward position of interfering with another government agency. He added that while the City Council has a duty to express their views, the last thing he wished to do was take a careless or reckless action. Councilmember Pawlenty expressed similar sentiments and urged dialogue between DCCAB and the County on the incinerator issue. Gustafson moved, McCrea seconded a motion to adopt the Solid Waste Abatement Commission's recommendation to encourage Dakota County to retain reasonable levels of funding for local administration, promotion and operation of City recycling programs (at a level of approximately $2-S3 per year) and further, the capital funds retained by the County be dedicated on the basis of one-half of the capital grants to cities and one- half to specific solid waste needs, such as household hazardous waste. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 Gustafson moved, Wachter seconded a motion to strongly reaffirm the City Council's resolution concerning the proposed Dakota County resource recovery facility of February, 1990 as amended and reflected in Exhibit A. Aye: 5 Nay. 0 R-91.17 SENECA PLANT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT Mayor Egan introduced this item as Consideration of Seneca Plant Development Agreement - Proposed Revision of Schedule Regarding Incinerator Odor Control Improvement. City Administrator Hedges provided background on the item and said the City Council had asked the City Attorney to look at the development agreement and report to the City Council on what his office felt are the alternatives and considerations that should be given to this matter. PAGE 7/EAGAN CITY COUNCIL MINUTES April 2, 1991 As a result of the recent notification by the MWCC that they have changed the type of equipment to be installed at the Seneca Plant and the time frame for its installation, City Attorney Sheldon enumerated four alternatives available to the City Council: 1. Hold the issue in abeyance and make a decision at a later time. 2. Review the documents that are presented to the City and grant an extension to the MWCC. 3. Direct a renegotiation on a time extension with bargained for alternatives that the City considers appropriate. 4. Determine that the MWCC is in default and litigate on the contract or, in the alternative, litigate on other issues. The City Council reached an early consensus on the alternatives and determined that the most appropriate alternative would be to renegotiate a conditional extension of the time frame in which odor control equipment improvements will be made by the MWCC at the Seneca plant. They agreed, however, that any conditions to the time extension should be as strong as possible and that these conditions would be reviewed by the residents affected by such an extension. It was also deemed imperative that the conditions be prepared as quickly as possible so they could be returned for action by the Council at their regular meeting on April 16, 1991. After discussion, the City Council asked the City Attorney to issue a notice of default of the development agreement for the Seneca expansion and upgrade. City Attorney Sheldon said the notice could be issued and in the interim, the extension with conditions could be pursued and if unsuccessful, litigation alternatives could be considered. Councilmember Gustafson pointed out that an extension would be contingent upon the conditions and if the right set of conditions could be agreed upon, the City Council would then consider an extension. Betty Bassett, 2101 Wuthering Heights Road, said she was generally in favor of the proposed action. She said it seemed the most reasonable because fines against the MWCC would not take away the odor and delaying the permit would not solve their dilemma. She asked that various methods of accelerating the construction schedule be considered as conditions. Mr. Harold Vogt, representing the MWCC, said they were willing to work with the City on any conditions. Mr. Al Ahrens, 2133 Silver Bell Road, said the delivery dates of equipment for Seneca should be part of the conditions. Mr. Ahrens said Mr. Vogt had indicated that the MWCC would be meeting with the equipment vendors next week. Mr. Ahrens pointed out that the MWCC had said the same thing at the March 5th meeting. City Administrator Hedges asked Mr. Vogt if it would be acceptable to have a City staff member present at the contract meetings with vendors and Mr. Vogt said it would. Mr. John Westley, 1747 Bluebill Drive, asked that one of the conditions for extension be an alternative to sludge incineration. He mentioned the dioxin problems associated with incinerators and suggested the alternate method of in-vessel composting. Mayor Egan reminded Mr. Westley that the issue before the Council was how to address the default of the development contract for the expansion and upgrade of the Seneca plant. Mr. Westley said the City should still pursue an environmentally-correct solution to the problem and take a proactive stance. Discussion then turned to the issue of ash from the sludge incinerator being dumped in Fort Snelling State Park. It appears the ash disposal has been permitted by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency; however, Director of Community Development Runkle said his department would look into the matter. PAGE 8/EAGAN CITY COUNCIL MINUTES April 2, 1991 McCrea moved, Gustafson seconded, a motion to direct legal counsel to draft a notice of default of the development contract for the expansion and upgrade of the Seneca plant and to draft conditions for a conditional extension of the deadline for the installation of odor control equipment under that upgrade. Aye: 5 Nay. 0 CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT/R. L JOHNSON INVESTMENT COMPANY Mayor Egan introduced this item as a Conditional Use Permit for R. L. Johnson Investment Company, Inc. to Allow Outside Storage in a LI (Light Industrial) District and a Special Permit for a Fence in Excess of Six Feet Tall on Lot 1, Block 1, R. L Johnson 2nd Addition, Located Along Yankee Doodle Road and Yankee Doodle Drive in the Southeast Quarter of Section 8 and the Northeast Quarter of Section 17. City Administrator Hedges said this item was referred back to the Advisory Planning Commission on February 26, 1991 and was to be considered at the March 19, 1991 regular City Council meeting; however, the applicant requested a continuance. Mr. Hedges said the Advisory Planning Commission is recommending denial. Director of Community Development Runkle described the application and its location and said that since the Advisory Planning Commission had recommended denial, staff has been attempting to find a compromise. Mr. Runkle said the applicant was willing to meet with staff and find a solution. Pawlenty moved, Wachter seconded a motion to continue to the April 16, 1991 regular City Council meeting the conditional use permit to allow outdoor storage and a special use permit for a fence in excess of six feet for R. L. Johnson Compady. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 STOP SIGN PETITION, SAFARI PASS AT SAFARI TRAIL Mayor Egan introduced this item as Consideration of a Stop Sign Petition at Safari Pass and Safari Trail. Director of Public Works Colbert outlined the petition that had been received to install stop signs at the above location. He went on to explain that speed studies had been done showing no accidents but some evidence of vehicles exceeding the speed limits. Mr. Colbert added, however, that staff could not find any warrants to justify installation of the stop signs. Mayor Egan then opened the meeting to public comment. Mr. Brian Berseau, 1947 Safari Trail; Mr. Edward M. Evans, 1952 Safari Trail; and Mr. Mike Moser, 4875 Safari Pass all expressed concerns about the safety issues involved. All mentioned the'steepness of the hill on Safari Trail, the speed of the traffic going through the area, and the number of children who live in the neighborhood. All believe that placing a stop sign at this intersection would slow the traffic down. Mayor Egan and Councilmember Gustafson both agreed that safety was a number one concern; however, studies have shown that signs placed in the wrong location can be just as unsafe as no traffic control at all. Councilmember McCrea said that the petitioners were from her neighborhood. She said Safari Trail had become a major thoroughfare and indicated that safety was becoming a concern. After further discussion, McCrea moved, Pawlenty seconded a motion to receive the petition and approve the installation of stop signs at Safari Pass and Safari Trail. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 STOP SIGN PETITION DIAMOND DRIVE AT SAPPHIRE LANE Mayor Egan introduced this item as Consideration of a Stop Sign Petition for Diamond Drive at Sapphire Lane. PAGE 9/EAGAN CITY COUNCIL MINUTES April 2, 1991 Director of Public Works Colbert said a petition had been received as a result of an accident in this area in September of 1990. Mr. Colbert said the petition was not specific as to the location of the stop sign. He also pointed out that there are site restrictions at the intersection. Mr. Colbert said it is an offset intersection consisting of two T-intersections. He said State statute indicates that if traffic is to be controlled at a T- intersection, the through movement will not stop. He said while this offset intersection is unique, he did not believe installation of stop signs would have prevented the accident. Mr. Colbert said the intersection does not warrant a stop sign. There was additional discussion as to whether there should be an advisory sign near the intersection warning of conditions; however, there were also concerns that such signs would confuse the issue. Gustafson moved, McCrea seconded a motion to receive the petition and deny the installation of the stop sign on Diamond Drive at Sapphire Lane. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 REQUEST OF WAIVER TO WARRANTY MAINTENANCE BOND REQUIREMENT FAIRWAY HILLS ADDITION Mayor Egan introduced this item as a Request of a Waiver to the Warranty Maintenance Bond Requirements in the Fairway Hills Addition - Project 86-W. City Administrator Hedges said that Mr. Roger Derrick was not present to address the issue, however, a meeting had been held. with Mr. Derrick and Director of Public Works Colbert regarding the warranty maintenance bond. Based on the past practice of requiring warranty maintenance bonds, Gustafson moved, Pawlenty seconded a motion to deny the request for waiver to City Code 1330, Subdivision 15, Section C, Paragraph 2 (f). Aye: 5 Nay: 0 COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE PLAN/REZONING WEIERKE TRENCHING & EXCAVATING COMPANY Mayor Egan introduced this item as a Comprehensive Guide Plan Amendment, Weierke Trenching & Excavating Company, Changing the Land Use Designation from D-I (Single-Family) to NB (Neighborhood Business) and a Rezoning of Approximately 2.4 Acres from AG (Agricultural) to NB (Neighborhood Business) Located Along the Southwest Intersection of Dodd Road and Cliff Road in the Northwest Quarter of Section 36. City Administrator Hedges said a letter had been received from the applicant asking that this item be removed from consideration. Pawlenty moved, McCrea seconded a motion to remove from consideration the comprehensive guide plan amendment for Weierke Trenching & Excavating Company changing the land use designation from D-I (Single-Family) to NB (Neighborhood Business) and the rezoning of approximately 2.4 acres from AG (Agricultural) to NB (Neighborhood Business) located along the southwest intersection of Dodd Road and Cliff Road in the northwest quarter of Section 36. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 CITY CODE AMENDMENT/PAWN SHOPS IN CSC Mayor Egan introduced this item as an Amendment, City of Eagan, to the Eagan City Code, Chapter 11, "Land Use Regulations" (Zoning) to Allow Pawn Shops as a Permitted Use in CSC (Community Shopping Center) Districts. Because this item has not yet received action by the Advisory Planning Commission, McCrea moved, Gustafson seconded a motion to continue an amendment to the City Code, Chapter 11, relative to land use regulations of zoning to allow pawn shops as a permitted use in CSC (Community Shopping Center) districts. Aye: 5 Nay: 0 PAGE 10/EAGAN CITY COUNCIL MINUTES April 2, 1991 ADMINISTRATION/MAINTENANCE FACILITY FAX MACHINE Gustafson moved, Wachter seconded a motion to approve the purchase of a Konica 810L plain paper fax machine.
