Fuel Tank NCDENR Requirements

 

            Support Services Supervisor Danny Stovall presented the following information to the

 

Board regarding the recent NCDENR Violation Notices received by the County on 11-29-07

 

pertaining to an audit of County owned underground fuel tanks along with current upgrade cost

 

estimates:

 

Stokes County Landfill - 10,000-gallon tank dispensing highway diesel fuel

            1.  Violation – Failure to inspect Cathodic Protection System

·         System was inspected on October 30, 2007 – no system was detected; therefore, piping will have to be replaced according to 15A NCAC 2N .0900.

·         Would also request to replace the dispensing pump at the location due to the age of the existing pump

 

Walnut Cove Refuse Site -  4,000-gallon tank dispensing gasoline

            1.  Violation - Steel piping will have to be replaced in accordance with 15A NCAC 2N

                   .0900.

            2.  Well for human consumption within 100’ of underground fuel tank

·         Before January 1, 2008, well for human consumption within 100’ will have to be closed or the underground fuel tank permanently closed

·         Decision made by Stokes County Management - Port-a-let has been installed and water has been discontinued from the building located at the site

·         Well at this location is still being used to supply water to a yard hydrant for washing down concrete area in front of refuse containers (approved by NCDENR)

3.   Would also request to replace the dispensing pumps at the location due to age of

       the existing pumps, numerous repairs, and new pumps would enable the County to

                   place the new pumps on the petro-vend system, which accounts for usage of fuel.

 

Stokes County Garage - 10,000-gallon tank dispensing gasoline

            1.  Violation – Failure to inspect Cathodic Protection System

·         System was inspected on October 30, 2007 and failed to meet NACE standard RP0285-95

fuel by the County, quotes provided by Mr. Stovall, need for requesting an extension from the

 

State, expenses incurred if the county discontinued dispensing fuel, and funding from

 

contingency.

 

            Mr. Stovall recommended Option 1-turnkey quote from Southern Pump and Tank in the

 

amount of $42, 427.10 along with Protective Technologies for the Garage in the amount of

 

$2600.00 – total project cost = $45,021.10.   Mr. Stovall noted that the turnkey option would be

 

dealing with one vendor instead of two or three vendors.

 

            Chairman Inman directed the Clerk to place the item on the January 28th Action

 

Agenda and directed Mr. Stovall to request an extension from NCDENR.

o   Construct metal-framed addition, concrete floor, installation of exterior block veneer, upgrade current HVAC, electrical systems, expand workshop area, construct training/computer lab along with bathrooms in new addition

o   Building inspections – facility is located within the Town of Walnut Cove

The Board discussed adding to the existing building versus a modular unit, bidding out

 

the project to general contractors versus the County acting as a general contractor, and possible

 

architects and bidders.

 

            The Board unanimously agreed to new construction for the renovations, to move

 

forward with Stokes County as the general contractor, and secure architectural pricing for

 

the Board’s consideration.

Inventory of County Property and Space Needs- Continuation

 

            County Manager Bryan Steen requested additional time to review the recommendations

 

received from Clerk of Court Jason Tuttle and the Stokes County Magistrates due to being

 

out of town last week.  (Judicial Meeting was held on January 9th to discuss space needs)

 

            Clerk of Court Jason Tuttle spoke to the Board regarding the following:

 

o   Need for space for District Attorney in order to have personnel in Stokes County (possibly the current Law Library and Magistrate office)

o   District Attorney does not wish to be located behind the security doors – prefers to be located so that citizens can walk directly into the office

o   Possible move of the Magistrate Office to the lower level could create security issues

o   Move Law Library to one of the two small offices in front of Courtroom “A”

o   Move Attorney’s computer to one of the two small offices in front of Courtroom “A”

o   Move snack area from the lower level to the upper level

o   Relocating the Grand Jury to Law Library – giving Grand Jury Room and current probation offices to District Attorney

o   Request the Board of Commissioners review the status of the office of the resident District Court Judge located on the lower level of the Government Center. The County currently has two resident District Court Judges and the current office is only being used by only one Judge and that Judge has the only key.

 

      District Attorney Ricky Bowman spoke to the Board regarding the following:

 

o   Possibly two new positions in July 2008 – no space available

o   Desire to have more personnel in Stokes County – no space available

o   Not fair for the citizens of Stokes County to not have the appropriate personnel in Stokes County – no space available

o   Desire to have at least 7 staff members in Stokes County – no space available

o   Need for space to discuss confidential matters with clients – no space available

o   Stokes County files are taken to Surry County for storage – no space available

o   The Clerk of Court should also be considered in the master relocation plan for future space

o   Need to consider the safety of law enforcement officers

o   Need to consider a possible living area for Magistrates for the future

o   Need for someone to make a decision

o   Willing to move as long as space provides access to the public

o   First priority – space available that provides public accessibility with additional space in the law library if possible

o   The main objective – move the first domino to get the process started

 

            The Board discussed the information with Clerk Tuttle and District Attorney Bowman

 

along with the need to have recommendations of Phase 1, Phase 2, etc. and cost estimates at the

 

next meeting.

 

            The Board discussed the request from Clerk Tuttle regarding offices for both resident

 

District Court Judges.

 

            Commissioner Lankford noted that all Departments in need of space must be

 

considered in the upcoming proposals.

 

            Commissioner Carroll noted the need to possibly move the Fire Marshal to the third

 

floor in order to have vacant space for other departments to move into.

 

            County Manager Steen reiterated the need for additional time to review the information

 

presented today by Clerk Tuttle and District Attorney Bowman along with acquiring

 

information from Probations and Elections.  Election Director Jason Perry had presented

 

information to the Manager today regarding not wanting to move if the move could not be

 

completed by August 2008 due to the Presidential Election in the fall.

 

            Chairman Inman directed Manager Steen to contact Clerk Tuttle, Sheriff Mike Joyce

 

and District Attorney Bowman for input regarding the space needs and present a

 

recommendation at the January 28th meeting.
