Motion was made and seconded WHEREAS, Roads are the backbone to the social, cultural and economic stability of Barry County and our region; and

WHEREAS, Senate Bill (SB) 396 (S-5) passed and reported out of the Senate Transportation Committee on September 6, 2018, allows exemptions from seasonal weight restrictions (also known as “frost laws”) to the forest product industry during the spring thaw when roads are the most vulnerable to damage from heavy loads; and

 

WHEREAS, It is a fact in Barry County and throughout all Northern states that all roads become soft in the spring as frost melts, and applying unrestricted 164,000-pound truck loading and traffic on soft roads, whether paved or unpaved, is poor public policy that defies common sense when it comes to road preservation, and will lead to significant damage to the road system, economic damage in Barry County and increased risk to drivers in our region; and

 

WHEREAS, SB 396 also grants exemptions to the forest industry that will allow the hauling of forest products and transport of equipment on the public road system without obtaining proper permits from road authorities at all times of the year; and

 

WHEREAS, the provisions of SB 396 will result in costly damage to the public road system which is the opposite of what the Michigan Legislature and the people of Michigan called for in the 2015 Michigan Transportation Package; and

 

WHEREAS, the provisions of SB 396 will negatively impact the traveling public accessing the road system, burdening road authorities with expensive reactive maintenance repairs and significantly increased taxpayer costs, as well as increased county and township contributions to maintain the public road system; and

 

WHEREAS, the provisions in SB 396 and subsequent impacts to the local road system will negatively impact the health, safety and welfare of Barry County residents and the traveling  public; and

 

WHEREAS, Barry County Board of Road Commissioners work closely with the logging industry to accommodate this valuable contributor to the Michigan economy, while also continuously monitoring road conditions and permitting the logging industry to move equipment and material on roads when the roads can structurally support such loading without negatively impacting the road system and the traveling public;

 

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that the Barry County Board of Commissioners hereby strongly opposes SB 396 (S-5).

WHEREAS, the Barry County Road Commission agrees to consider a local pavement warranty on each project that includes $2 million or more in paving-related items and includes any state or federal funds;

 

WHEREAS, the Local Agency Pavement Warranty Program law requires each county road agency to report annually on each project that includes $2 million or more in paving-related items and includes any state or federal funds, whether or not a warranty was utilized in the project;

  1. No provision in this Easement Agreement is to be interpreted for or against any party because that party or that party’s legal representative drafted the provision.

 

  1. Nothing in this Easement Agreement constitutes, nor shall the same be construed, as a waiver of any governmental immunity provided to the County, its agents, employees and officers provided under common law or statute.

Motion was made and seconded

 

WHEREAS, the Municipal Employees’ Retirement System (“MERS”) Plan Document of 1996, effective October 1, 1996, authorized the Municipal Employees’ Retirement Board (“Board”) to establish additional programs including but not limited to Defined Benefit and Defined Contribution programs (MERS Plan Document Section 71(2)(a)); and the Municipal Employees Retirement Act of 1984, Section 36(2)(a) as amended by 1996 PA 220, MCL 38.1536(2)(a));

 

WHEREAS, the Board has previously authorized MERS establishment of a retiree health funding vehicle (“RHFV” or “Program”), which a participating municipality or court, or another eligible public employer that is a political subdivision of the State which constitutes a “municipality” under MERS Plan Document Section 2(23); MCL 38.1502b(2) (“Eligible Employer”), may adopt for its Eligible Employees;

 

WHEREAS, MERS has been determined by the Internal Revenue Service to be a tax qualified “governmental plan” and trust under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, and all trust assets within MERS reserves are therefore exempt from taxation under Code Section 501(a) (IRS Letter of Favorable Determination dated June 15, 2005).

 

WHEREAS, the Board has established a governmental trust under Section 115 of the Internal Revenue Code (the “Trust Fund”) to hold the assets of the RHFV, which Trust Fund shall be administered under the discretion of the Board as fiduciary, directly by (or through a combination of) MERS or MERS duly-appointed Program Administrator;

 

WHEREAS, 1999 PA 149, the Public Employee Health Care Fund Investment Act, MCL 38.1211 et seq. (“PA 149”) provides for the creation by a public corporation of a public employee health care fund, and its administration, investment, and management, in order to accumulate funds to provide for the funding of health benefits for retirees and beneficiaries;

 

WHEREAS, a MERS health care trust fund constitutes a governmental trust established by a public corporation (“municipality”) as an Eligible Employer, provided that all such employers shall be the State of Michigan, its political subdivisions, and any public entity the income of which is excluded from gross income under Section 115 of the Internal Revenue Code; provided further, that the health care trust shall not accept assets from any defined benefit health account established under Section 401(h) of the Internal Revenue Code;

 

WHEREAS, the Board acts as investment fiduciary for the pooled assets of each MERS participating municipality and court enrolled in MERS Defined Benefit Plan, Defined Contribution Plan, and Hybrid Plan, on whose behalf MERS performs all plan administration and investment functions, and such participating municipalities and courts have full membership, representation and voting rights at the MERS Annual Meeting as provided under Plan Section 78; MCL 38.1545.

 

WHEREAS, the Board also acts as investment fiduciary for those participating employers who are non- MERS participating municipalities and courts that have adopted the MERS Health Care Savings Program, Retiree Health Funding Vehicle, 457, or Investment Services Program, and such entities are not accorded membership, representation or

 

 

 

voting rights provided to MERS participating municipalities and courts at the MERS Annual Meeting under Plan Section 78; MCL 38.1545.Page 2 of 5

 

WHEREAS, adoption of this Uniform Resolution (the “Uniform Resolution”) by the Eligible Employer is necessary and required in order that the benefits available under the MERS Retiree Health Funding Vehicle may be extended;

 

WHEREAS, this Uniform Resolution has been approved by the Board under the authority of 1996 PA 220, MERS Plan Document Section 71(2)(a), MCL 38.1536(2)(a), declaring that the Board “shall determine . . . and establish” all provisions of the Retirement System. The MERS RHFV shall not be implemented with respect to any Eligible Employer unless in strict compliance with the terms and conditions of this Resolution, the Trust Document, and Trust Agreement.

 

  • It is expressly agreed and understood as an integral and nonseverable part of extension or continuation of coverage under this Uniform Resolution Adopting MERS Retiree Health Funding Vehicle, that Section 43 of the MERS Plan Document shall not apply to this Uniform Resolution, its administration or interpretation.

 

  • In the event any alteration of the language, terms or conditions stated in this Uniform Resolution Adopting MERS Retiree Health Funding Vehicle is made or occurs under MERS Plan Document Section 43 or other plan provision or other law, it is expressly recognized that MERS and the Board, as fiduciary of the MERS Plan and its trust reserves, and whose authority is nondelegable, shall have no obligation or duty: to administer (or to have administered) the MERS RHFV or its Trust Fund; or to continue administration.

 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the governing body adopts the MERS PA 149 Health Care Trust Fund as provided below.

 

  1. MERS RETIREE HEALTH FUNDING VEHICLE

 

EFFECTIVE September 1, 2018, the MERS Retiree Health Funding Vehicle is hereby adopted by the Barry County Road Commission.

 

CONTRIBUTIONS shall be made only by the Eligible Employer, remitted to MERS by the Eligible Employer, and credited to the Eligible Employer’s separate fund within the trust sub-fund for MERS RHFV. As this Plan is funded solely by employer, on a cash or actuarial basis as determined by the employer, there is no requirement for a Participation Agreement establishing the schedule of contributions.

 

INVESTMENT of funds accumulated and held in the Fund shall be held in a separate reserve and invested on a pooled basis by MERS subject to the Public Employee Retirement System Investment Act (“PERSIA”), 1965 PA 314, as provided by MERS Plan Document Section 76; MCL 38.1539, and PA 149.

 

THE ELIGIBLE EMPLOYER shall abide by the terms of MERS RHFV, including all investment, administration, and service agreements, and all applicable provisions of the Code and other law. It is affirmed that no assets from any defined benefit health account established under Section 401(h) of the Internal Revenue Code shall be transferred to, or accepted by, MERS.

(MERS municipality or court or other eligible employer)

 

  1. IMPLEMENTATION DIRECTIONS FOR MERS AS RHFV INVESTMENT FIDUCIARY AND TRUSTEE

 

 

 

 

  • The governing body of this Eligible Employer desires that all assets placed in its    MERS RHFV (as a sub-fund within all pooled Trust Funds with MERS) be administered by MERS, which shall act as investment fiduciary with all powers provided under Public Employee Retirement System Investment Act, PA 149, all applicable provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and other relevant law. (B) The governing body desires, and MERS upon its approval of this Resolution agrees, that all funds accumulated and held in the MERS RHFV Trust Fund shall be invested and managed by MERS within the collective and commingled investment of all funds held in trust for all Eligible Employers. (C) The RHFV is designed as a PA 149 compliant trust. All assumptions, including the rate of investment return used in any OPEB valuation, are the responsibility of the employer in conjunction with any advice they may obtain from their health care actuary and/or auditor, if any. The Employer acknowledges and affirms the responsibility for selecting the investment option(s) from the MERS investment funds for their RHFV account.  Mid Cap Stock Index            20%International Stock Index     20%

(F) The Eligible Employer will fund its MERS RHFV Trust sub-fund to provide funds for health care benefits for “Eligible Employees” who shall constitute “qualified persons.” Participation in and any coverage under RHFV shall not constitute nor be construed to constitute an “accrued financial benefit” under Article 9 Section 24 of the Michigan Constitution of 1963, nor shall any contribution method for Eligible Employer funding other than “pay as you go” cash funding be required or imposed, and all benefits, rights, and

 

 

obligations conferred by or arising under RHFV shall be as provided under the RHFV documents.

SECTION 3. EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS RESOLUTION

 

This Resolution shall have no legal effect until a certified copy of this adopting Resolution shall be filed with MERS, and MERS determines that all necessary requirements under MERS Plan Document Section 71(2)(a), 1999 PA 149 and other relevant laws, and this Resolution have been met. Upon MERS determination that all necessary documents have been submitted, MERS shall record its formal approval upon this Resolution, and return a copy to the Eligible Employer’s designated primary contact.

 

In the event an amendatory resolution or other action by the Eligible Employer is required by MERS, such Resolution or action shall be deemed effective as of the date of the initial Resolution or action where concurred in by this governing body and MERS (and the Program Administrator if necessary). Section 86 of the MERS Plan Document shall apply to this Resolution and all acts performed under its authority. The terms and conditions of this Resolution supersede and stand in place of any prior resolution, and its terms are controlling.

Scott Bond, Superintendent, Jake Welch, Director of Operations, and Doug Peck, Operations Engineer, were at the meeting.

 

Ken Mingerink of 12970 Marsh Road spoke to the Board about a drainage issue he is having. The neighbors have filled in their ditches and the water runs into Mr. Mingerink’s and his neighbor’s yard. Mr. Mingerink would like us to put a culvert under the road to property he owns across the street to drain the water off his property. In speaking to Mr. Mingerink the Board found out the water is there usually 2 – 3 times a year and stays 3 – 7 days.   The Board explained the amount of drainage requests we get and our budget restraints and that we are unable to help him. We told Mr. Mingerink that he could hire someone to bore under the road, he could create a natural water way to Gun Lake to drain the water off his property or he could also speak to the Drain Commissioner to create a drainage district. It was also mentioned we would help fund the project.

Mark Flick from Frontline Maintenance spoke to the Board about the Vegetation Removal in Barry Township contract he has with BCRC. He explained that he is averaging ½ – ¾ mile a day and the project is taking longer than he thought it would. He has just purchased a Grapple Truck and will report back at a future Board Meeting to let us know if this truck will help him raise his average miles in a day.
