Tether Program
Administrator German noted that he, Sheriff Savoie, and Mackinac Counties had discussions with the State of Michigan Community Corrections and Michigan Works about the tether program being run directly by the Counties instead of using Michigan Works as the fiduciary. The reason for this was that Michigan Works was using $40,000 of the $140,000 grant proceeds for administrative cost.  It was thought that the County may be able to save on these costs. Mackinac County was working on the grant proposal and Chippewa County is working on contracts and resolutions for the new program.  A resolution would need to be passed by each County and some new positions may need to be filled on a Community Corrections Board. The cost of the tether vehicle was also discussed.

It was moved by Commissioner Kinsella, supported by Commissioner McLean, to approve the administration move forward on the tether project as long as Mackinac and Luce were also involved, and to ask the Sheriff to look into a more efficient type of transportation for the tether officer.

 C) Resolution 12-09 Supporting a Statutory Exemption for Stormwater Runoff from Logging Roads.

It was moved by Commissioner McLean, supported by Commissioner Moore, to approve the Resolution as follows:

RESOLUTION NO. 12-09

RESOLUTION SUPPORTING A STATUTORY EXEMPTION FOR STORMWATER
RUNOFF FROM LOGGING ROADS

WHEREAS, on August 17, 2010 the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit held that a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NODES) permit is required for stormwater runoff from logging roads; and

WHEREAS, the Clean Water Act (CWA) requires a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for the discharge of any pollutant to any navigable water (AKA “water of the U.S.”) from any point source.  Since 1973, rules promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) have distinguished between point source and non-point source pollution in the CWA.  Non-point source pollution, which is not defined in the CWA, includes any source of water pollution not characterized as a point source discharge; and

WHEREAS, included in the CWA rules is the so-called Silvicultural Rule found at 40 C.F.R. § 122.27(b)(1), which has remained substantially in its current form since 1976.  The Silvicultural Rule specifically defines timber “harvesting operations, surface drainage, or road construction and maintenance from which there is natural runoff “to be” non-point source silvicultural activities,” and thus, excluded from NPDES permitting requirements; and

WHEREAS, the Ninth Circuit disagreed with the Silvicultural Rule, holding that stormwater runoff that is collected and channeled in a system of ditches and culverts before being discharged into streams and rivers constitutes a point source, and that EPA lacks authority to promulgate a rule to the contrary. The Ninth Circuit stated that Congress has a history of providing specific statutory exemptions for certain categories of discharges. The court went on to say that federal courts have invalidated EPA regulations that provided similar regulatory exemptions; and

WHEREAS, the Court’s decision has potentially sweeping implications. If broadly read, this opinion would require NPDES permits for every road in the country that is served by ditches or culverts that eventually discharge to natural surface waters and that is not already regulated by the CWA; and 

WHEREAS, the court's opinion also leaves many critical questions unanswered. Even if the opinion were limited to logging roads, what constitutes a logging road? Contrary to the court's assumptions of fact, many forest roads, including the roads at issue in this case, are not dedicated just to logging. They are used for a variety of purposes, both public and private, beyond just logging.  If this is the case, who is responsible for obtaining these required permits?  The court did not address whether the permit obligation rests with the owner of the roads or every entity that transports logs on the roads, or even those using the roads to access the forest for recreation.   This Adopted Policy is consistent with current NACo policy that states that stormwater from all roads, gutters and ditches should not be considered a “water of the U.S.” under the CWA; and

WHEREAS, if rural county owned roads, such as logging or forest roads, require federal NPDES permits, this will be an unfunded mandate and preemption on county governments.  

BE IT RESOLVED, the Wexford County Board of Commissioners supports legislation that enacts into law the Silvicultural Rule.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED,  that a copy of this resolution shall be sent to Governor Snyder, Representative Huizenga, Senators Levin and Stabenow, Senator Booher and Representative Potvin, and also to the boards of County Commissioners of the other counties of the state, who we urge to join us in supporting legislation that enacts into law the Silvicultural Rule.

WHEREAS, that the transfer of the fiduciary duties be transferred from E.U.P. Employment and Training Consortium to Chippewa County; and
