1. Resolution 2020-08 approve amended CUP to add approximately 277 acres to River Fork’s solar project. They have added additional property. This resolution applies to these new parcels. Essentially the new parcels will be subject to the same conditions as the old parcels. Sean asks about the grass rig being a part of this generalization.

2. Resolution 2020-09 approve extending permit applications for one year for new starting date of construction. Sean explains why they are applying for this extension. Scott asks if they have a scheduled start date. Sean answers that they plan on starting construction in 2021; either before or after harvest. Scott asks about a construction plan schedule, but they do not have one yet. A motion was made by Scott 2nd Shanna by to approve Resolution 2020-09. Roll call vote; all in favor. The motion passed
3. Resolution 2020-10 establish date for public hearing for the establishment of Industrial Development District. There is discussion about when to schedule the meeting. We must have 7 days notice. It is decided that it makes sense to tie it to the next regular board meeting. It would then need to be a virtual meeting since we would not know how many participants there would be. That would make it scheduled on October 20th at 7pm. Scott is asking when would be the best time to ask questions about this resolution. Discussion follows as Brien answers the questions that Scott has. Brien says that our tax revenue should go up not down. A motion was made by Scott 2nd by Shanna to accept the 2020-10 resolution. Roll call vote; all in favor. The motion passed.
IV. Adjourn: A motion was made by Shanna, 2nd Scott to adjourn at 7:45. Roll call vote; all in favor. The motion passed.
