Discussion regarding wind farms, TIF and where revenue will be distributed with citizens including, but not limited to the following citizens:
Citizen Tony Epp was the first to speak. He mentioned the Declaration of Independence and certain rights for the citizens such as life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, the right to engage in free enterprises and talked about men with vision. Mr. Epp spoke of property taxes and regulation and taxation. He said it is time to back off the taxes and give back to man and businesses.
Lynn Courtney who lives in Dist#27, Peckham School District stated she did not want to see the revenue from the wind farms go to just one school; she said it should go to all schools and for all the children. Ms. Courtney said most of the children that attend Peckham School are bused to school.
Steven Crawford who has served as a superintendent of schools in four different Oklahoma school districts and served in various capacities on state school funding committees and commissions and recently retired as the Executive Director of the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) said he would explain by asking four questions.
1) Is it appropriate for county commissioners to approve this TIF? Mr. Crawford said legally yes it is fine. He told currently the county receives approximately 15.5% of the funds subject to this proposal while school districts receive in excess of 67% of these taxes. He said he would encourage the county to only incentivize private corporate efforts up to the level of ad valorem taxes it currently controls.
2) Will all taxpayers be impacted by the TIF? He told approving a TIF maintains higher property taxes for owners of non-exempt property?: Property taxes remain at higher levels because future ad valorem growth from the TIF cannot be considered for purposes of the sinking funds of affected taxing Jurisdictions. He listed school districts and sinking fund millage as follows: Blackwell-19.98; Kildare-4.67; Newkirk-29.44; Peckham-14.13.
He explained that property owners within the boundaries of Blackwell, Kildare, Newkirk and Peckham schools will be subsidizing the tax burden of the proposed wind farm.
3) How will public schools be impacted when counties create TIF districts to subsidize wind farm development?: According to the Oklahoma Tax Commission, the 2016 state ad valorem reimbursement costs were projected to be $80,234.967 with 39% of that total being attributable to wind generation facilities. In his handout was a chart indicating the estimated total loss if a TIF was created in each of the school districts.
4) Does this action create a future precedent for Kay County and the state of Oklahoma? According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the future of wind generation in Oklahoma has the potential to more than quadruple over the next few years. If Kay County approves a TIF for this wind farm other counties will want to follow. In Kay County more than 1,000 turbines are anticipated and commissioners should consider that future companies will expect that the incentives approved for one wind farm will be approved for all future wind farms. Mr. Crawford stated to the BOCC to be careful of their decision and he asked them not to form a review committee. He told them the decision they make today could have an extraordinary and lasting impact on the students and schools of our state.
Mr. Crawford mentioned his information he gathered was based on a review of state statutes and finance data from the Kay County Assessor as well as from the Oklahoma Tax Commission. His handout also included a 2015 Actual Disbursement Breakdown Ad Valorem Reimbursement Fund & “Let’s Get Personal” Property both created by the Ad Valorem Tax Division, a 2015 Kay County Tax Levy Report and A Tsunami of Proposed Wind Turbines is on the Horizon in Oklahoma breakdown.
Gary Young, Superintendent of Peckham Schools, began by responding to question 3 on a letter sent to him by Commissioner Johnson. The question is, Do you think the location of the wind power generators should be the only factor in determining school district distributions under a project plan? Young’s response to that question was yes and stated we should respect the district boundaries and the revenue should stay in the district where the turbines are located. He said this matter is of upmost importance and stated that is why he has attended three commissioners meeting and has gathered information from school experts.
Mr. Young presented the BOCC with a letter from Dr. John Cox, President of Organization of Rural Elementary Schools (ORES) stating his letter was to encourage the commissioners to pursue an agreement that allows the ad valorem funds generated from each school district area to return to those specific school districts in a manner that is proportional to the district where the funds were generated.
A letter from Ryan Owens, Executive Director of Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) was also presented. In his letter Mr. Owens urges the commissioners to consider the full impact of their decision. He stated our state is on notice that there is the potential of a four-fold increase in the number of new wind farms coming to Oklahoma and the BOCC decision to incentivize private wind energy production could establish a dangerous precedent that will cause other counties to provide similar incentives. The cumulative effect of providing TIFs for wind farms could result in billions of dollars of ad valorem taxes not being accounted for which will negatively impact state funding for public schools.
Mr. Young reported the Peckham Board of Education is against a state proposal that does not allow ad valorem taxes to stay in the Peckham School District and is not in favor of going to committee.
Mr. Bruce Shelley, Superintendent of Kildare Schools presented a Resolution of the Kildare Board of Education stating they are against any local, county or state proposal, plan action act or resolution that does not allow any ad valorem taxes or taxes in lieu of ad valorem taxes generated in the Kildare School District to stay within the Kildare School District. Mr. Shelley added after much consultation they do not want this to go to committee.
Andy Andrews, land owner in the Peckham School District, said he is pleased to see the changes and said as a land owner he is fighting for his lively hood. He gave a brief history of where he lived and history of his employment and how the wind turbines brought revenue in for the school districts in Corpus Christi.
He said there are less than 50 children in the Peckham School District. Superintendent Young corrected him and told there were 100 students enrolled. Mr. Andrews noted he has been in this area for five years and would like to see all the students in this area benefited.
Matt Dorsen, Amshore USA Wind, LLC/Duke Energy, stated he wanted to emphasize the purpose of this meeting is to determine if more facts are needed. He said $921 million is invested in these projects with multiple plans put together. Mr. Dorsen said the review committee needed to be put in place so the county will know what’s at stake and not just rumors. He said with a project plan in place you will be talking in circles. Mr. Dorsen told the BOCC to before they could base their decision they needed all the facts in place and he encouraged the BOCC to set up plan to study and to review.
Commissioner Johnson asked for the Kay County Assessor Susan Keen to speak. Ms. Keen said when this was first presented to her it was unusual because TIFs are usually in cities, economic development such as motels, restaurants, gas stations, etc. She stated her main objective is this is personal property in the middle of farm land. Keen said as for bringing in extra revenue she stated it all depends on how the TIF is written. She told it is a scary thing and lots of other counties are looking at Kay County because it will set precedence.
DA Hermanson stated that after the last meeting on wind turbines he asked Assessor Keen to check with other counties regarding changes in the value of properties with or without wind turbines. He was told that property would increase. With a TIF, any improvements to the property added after the signing of the TIF would not change the ad valorem value.
Assessor Keen said the base tax if in a TIF would stay the same in the increment areas. If improvements are added after the TIF then the assessed value/tax dollars would not go in to the ad valorem taxable amount and it would fall into the benefit of how it’s to be distributed.
Commissioner Shanks asked how the county can give Duke Energy $32 million and it not be competitive in an open market.
Matt Dorsen replied even with financial nourishment it is still an incredibly competitive environment. If there is no help it makes the odds very unlikely.
Eric Briones, Amshore USA Wind, LLC, told the BOCC to keep their eye on the ball and move forward with the review committee so everyone can get their questions answered more clearly.
Commissioner Shanks noted the TIF is set up for a five-year increment and asked if Duke Energy would consider a two-year TIF instead.
Dorsen reported the review committee can be approved with alterations and it can be modified.
DA Hermanson said it is not a five-year TIF but a twelve-year TIF.
Commissioner Johnson commented he has spent several hours reviewing this situation and with every positive there has been a negative. Johnson said he had Duke Energy send out questions to the schools because he wanted input from each before moving forward and before going to committee. He said the decision made would affect the state of Oklahoma and he would like to see this go to a vote of the people and not be decided by three commissioners. Johnson told the results from the questions asked of the schools: Peckham/Kildare-No; Newkirk – Mr. Brady Barnes first said he had no opinion and then spoke for himself and not of the board and said he would like a committee formed; Blackwell – wants to go to committee; Ponca City – No; Pioneer Technology Center – would like more time to review.
Commissioner Skidmore said he did not feel the county would be setting precedence if we moved forward.
Dorsen said if Kay County were to move forward to a review committee it would be unique to Kay County and if other counties wanted to explore TIF Districting they certainly could but there are no obligations.
Commissioner Skidmore said he has been researching the matter and has talked with Ford County in Kansas and was told they are definitely reaping many benefits from it. Skidmore said he felt the BOCC should form a review committee and find out the facts and then decide.
Commissioner Shanks said his biggest problem is he doesn’t want to give a tax break to be competitive. He said the schools are the ones that will benefit the most and the landowners and the schools are not in favor. Shanks said he is in favor of wind farms but not with a TIF.
Johnson said the BOCC received 69 letters of support from the land owners and said he understands the farmers are fighting to stay alive and said that weighs heavy on him. But, it does set precedence. Johnson said he will not make a decision without the vote of the people.
DA Hermanson said he is not sure this matter can be submitted to the vote of the people but would find out.
Dorsen said if the county moves forward there is $383 million for overall project cost, $8.2 million going to Health Department, $7.8 million to PTC, $24 million to schools and $5.4 million going to Kay County for operation. He said that is a tremendous amount of money to the county. Dorsen listed several counties receiving TIF.
Johnson asked if any counties in Oklahoma had TIFs and Dorsen replied Kay County would be the first.
Mr. Crawford reminded the BOCC why they are pursuing counties is because the state is not doing anymore; he stated there are a lot of really confusing facts.
Mr. Briones stated a review committee needed to be formed so everyone knows exactly what is at stake. He said he strongly encourages the BOCC to move forward or we will just keep talking in circles.
Johnson expressed his frustration regarding receiving information from Duke Energy on a Friday and it leaves him with little time to review by the following Monday. He reiterated there is much information to review and he is not being indecisive he just wants to make sure he is educated on the matter. He stated it is not fair to us to have to try and absorb this much information before making a decision; we need time to make the best decision possible for the county, schools and our state.
Skidmore said this is a lot of money to leave on the table and expressed he doesn’t want to lose $925 million.
Shanks replied we are not losing anything because we haven’t received anything and we don’t know for sure how much we are going to receive.
Skidmore questioned why schools are not taking money from electric lines that are on school land when schools are in need of money.
Johnson stated by giving a tax break to one entity would be setting a precedence. He said in the future the county would be asked to do this again and is this fair to other county businesses. Johnson said he doesn’t want the BOCC deciding who pays full taxes and who doesn’t.
Skidmore said he didn’t know all the ins and outs but he doesn’t know of any other company wanting to come in and provide jobs and give the county $300 million for 25 years. He reiterated the Ford County Kansas schools are benefiting.
Kay County Treasurer Christy Kennedy asked if this TIF is approved will there be pressure from other companies wanting the same and could the county be sued if they didn’t offer them a tax break.
DA Hermanson said yes there would be pressure because other entities would ask why one group would get this benefit of the TIF and not some other group.
Shanks commented TIFs hurt state and federal government.
Motion was made by Skidmore to move forward and form a review committee. Motion died from lack of a second.
Motion was made by Shanks and seconded by Johnson not to move forward and not to form a review committee on a resolution declaring the intent to consider approval of a project plan and creation of a tax increment district under the Local Development Act; directing preparation of a project plan; appointing a review committee; directing the review committee to make findings as to eligibility and financial impact, if any, on taxing jurisdictions within the district; and directing the review committee to make a recommendation with respect to the proposed plan.

Road and Bridge Projects/Circuit Engineering District (CED) No.8 Road and Bridge Projects: Commissioner Skidmore stated crews continue to dig and screen shale on roads. He said crews are mowing intersections and roads, cleaning debris, fixing washouts from last week’s rain and graders have been pulling material and working on getting the roads back in shape. Skidmore said crews finished a culvert on 13th Street and have been digging out the ditches along 13th and working on a couple of other culverts also.

Finalizing paperwork and all funding issues concerning purchase by Kay County to North American Title Company for the Halliburton property tract of land in NE4 S20 T27N R1W, 319 N. 29th, Blackwell, OK for Dist#3 new location: DA Hermanson said he put this on the agenda to be certain there is nothing else that needs to be done because the closing is on the 26th of this month.
Treasurer Kennedy asked Commissioner Skidmore what his plan was to pay the loan back.
Skidmore said he would pay the Use Tax account back as soon as the loan came in. He explained the federal government’s year end is in September and so no money has yet been allocated.
Kennedy asked if his plan was to start paying back the Use Tax account while waiting on the loan to come in.
Skidmore said when the loan came in he would pay back the Use Tax account.
Johnson asked are you going make payments to the Use Tax account before the loan comes in. He also asked if anyone needs to be at the closing.
DA Hermanson said to give Skidmore a couple months or so before making payments so he has plenty of money for moving expenses, etc. He suggested revisiting this issue in December.
No action was taken on finalizing paperwork and all funding issues concerning purchase by Kay County to North American Title Company for the Halliburton property tract of land in NE4 S20 T27N R1W, 319 N. 29th, Blackwell, OK for Dist#3 new location.
