Item #7: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to sign Resolution#2023-18 to establish a C-PACE Program and approve the INCOG Agreement for program. Nancy Graham, INCOG Representative presented the Board with information on the program. Counties and either opt in or opt out of the for benefits to allow developers and commercial property owners to consider a low interest, long-term financing for program eligible capital improvements. The financing is secured as a special assessment lien on the property's land record. The county benefits from the assessment and it is paid through the C-Pace lender with property tax intervals over the average useful lifetime of the improvements, typically fifteen years or longer. This program has been utilized by Tulsa and Oklahoma County, with projects that have been completed and benefit the area. Graham gave some examples like improving building, making the company more energy efficient, improving lighting, HVAC Systems and some renewable energy upgrades. INOCG would oversee the program and charge a 1.25% fee at the time of closing. We will work with the approved applicants providing them with a list of lenders to shop the market. There have been sixteen projects to date examples Sinclair Building, Tulsa Boys home Downtown and a medical complex on HWY 169. Stephens asked if the county participates does this then give all the town and cities access to this program, as well, Graham stated yes. The approval process was discussed and approved. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #8: Motion was made by Warner and seconded by Whitehouse to let for Bid#23-14 Used Firefighting Pumper Engine for Olive Volunteer Fire Department to be opened on 3-13-23. Jason Dobson, Olive VFD Representative stated that this engine will be for fire station #2. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
Item #9: Motion was made by Stephens and seconded by Whitehouse to award contract to replace the overhead doors at the Bristow Fire Department per recommendations to Tulsa Overhead Door LLC for $43,096.00, as the lowest bidder has contractor supply issues and cannot supply factory door for project. Quotes submitted by Tulsa Overhead Door LLC $43,096.00, Elite Door Services $25,917.08, and Sapulpa Garage Doors $45,527.48. Charles Conkling briefly spoke about the fire tax benefits that the fire departments have received and how that has impacted their departments. Conkling reviewed the bids with the Board, the lowest bidder's price is not clear, as there are additional costs for taking the doors apart and painting them to the color specified, as well as removing the windows and placing them back. I think that there could be additional issues once they are put back together and it will cost more in the long run. Also, the vendor does not have a wide range of supply contractors to get the specified color and the delivery time is longer. We are wanting to go back to the original doors for the station, Tulsa Overhead Door has more vendors to choose from and can get the red color as specified and in a quicker time frame. Vote as follows: Stephens - Aye, Warner - Aye, Whitehouse - Aye.
