Public Comment:

Mayor Goodman called upon citizens registered to speak. City Administrator Kavelman started in sharing information about the new Eagle Scouts in the City of Lincoln, Illinois.

Next, Mrs. Wanda Lee Rohlf's came forward to talk about the marijuana dispensary presentation. She said within the first five to six years of teaching, she said after working with a student she knew the student was overdosing on medication. She took her to the hospital.Then her parents were notified, they had no idea their daughter had been abusing drugs. She said she goes back another number of years to other experiences.She has a preconceived notion about marijuana and other substance abuse products. She then proceeded to read quotes. She saidif we are not selling it, they cannot blame the City of Lincoln. She read an article about recreational marijuana and college student usage.

She said having had personal experiences, we as a city need to protect our youth.She said she does not want to be one of the people who helps minors access the drugs.

Mr. Paul Carder came forward to talk about a marijuana dispensary as well. He wanted to know what products would be available, he said he uses oral and extracts - he said labels show where the item was produced. He wanted to know if this quality control would be the same in recreational usage. He said he'd like to spend his money in Lincoln and not have to drive to Springfield, Bloomington, Canton etc. He urged everyone to, "Bring it." He said it's going to be in Illinois anyway, we might as well benefit from it.

He then mentioned Cresco labs and that Lincoln is going to benefit from their vast expansion. But he said he never heard much about that. He said the market is here to stay, illegal or otherwise.

Alderman Schmidt asked if he was for medical and recreational, he said not for himself. More conversation was had off microphone as Mr. Carder left the table [inaudible].

Alderman Bateman weighed in about people buying from a facility, and not off the street. He said they have to buy it from a controlled state lab.

Alderman Schmidt was curious about the taxes, she wanted to know if the taxes from the Cresco Labs facility went to the city or the county. Mr. Conze said that there is a portion that goes to the county and not the city as it is not in city limits.

Alderman Downs asked about the city receiving a tax cut if a dispensary came to the city.Mr.Conzo said .5 percent to a maximum of five percent could be assessed. He said it's not three percent, a sales tax of three percent which can be increased. He continued on about law enforcement prevention programs.

Alderman Schimidt asked about more tax. He said this was the maximum. But he still did not know if it was possible to assess a licensing fee for the facilities. He was not sureif this was a $25 or $1,000 fee. He was hoping to find this out soon.

Mr. Francesco Pedinga asked if the city is trying to get a crop growers facility in town.Alderman Downs engaged with him.Then Alderman Bateman weighed in saying right now it is just a recreational dispensary. He said there are different requirements under the state license. He said before getting down that path they need to decide if they are going to get a dispensary in town.

Mr. Bateman said these growing facilities usually happen in places that do not already have a growing facility.

Mrs. Rohlfs ask about the three percent tax, asking if this is for people who are selling or if it's a three percent sales tax. Alderman Bateman weighed in, saying only people going in and buying the product would pay the three percent on top of the sales tax, he said it's the end user.

Alderman Keller mentioned a tax based on the level of THC, with 20 and 25 percent increments per THC level.

Mayor Goodman moved down to other agenda items and put the conversation on hold.

Swearing in of Fire Fighter James Cosby as newly-appointed Lincoln Fire Inspector:

Mr.James Cosby of the Lincoln Fire Department came forward to be sworn into the office of Lincoln Fire Inspector in the City of Lincoln, County of Logan - he swore to support the constitution of the country and state.

New Logan County's Proposed ETSB/9-1-1 Intergovernmental Agreement Costs for City Council Approval:

Chief Paul Adams said there was a meeting with Mr.Hoblit and the attorney for the county about getting out of the agreement. Alderman Keller talked about a formula on page three - what all participants would be paying, $221,000 and change. He said this is the initial anr:iual cost and reassessed every year. He said we are bearing a little over half of all the dispatch calls in the county. Chief Adams followed up, saying by state statue they can be responsible for those dispatching services up to 35 percent. It could fluctuate based on the numbers of calls going up and going down.

Alderman Keller noted the count fiscal year.There being no further questions, the item was placed on the agenda.

Legalized Marijuana Dispensary Presentation:

Alderman Bateman introduced Eli McVey and April Glosser - they are looking to start a marijuana dispensary. They shared a presentation titled, "Adult-Use Cannabis in Illinois." He lives in Denver, CO and is a research and data analyst. April is an entrepreneur. Eli's brother (Payton McVey) is also an entrepreneur and business partner who will be on their team.

Mr. McVey listed off what recreational marijuana is - and how it can be consumed. He talked about the product types. He recognized there is a stigma and baggage with marijuana. He said this is professional industry ran by professional people. He reiterated that, "This is professional industry." He said the gateway use has been debunked. He said people are not going to go on to use harder drugs. He said this isn't a substance that is entirely good or bad and he was not going to, "Evangelize."

He said the difference with marijuana use and dependency is quite minor. He said there are 55 dispensaries around the state, and they will be able to sell to the recreational market after January 1, 2020. Then in May 2020, 75 new dispensaries will be granted.Their group will be applying for one of those recreational licenses.

Alderman Keller said if he looks at research correctly, the state has divided Illinois into different regions so that they are geographically dispersed. Mr. McVey said Lincoln may not get one. Mrs. Glosser said it

is pretty competitive, they are hoping to partner with a community that sees it as a benefit. There would be reinvestment back into the community. She said the winning scenario will be a community and a strong applicant coming together.

Alderman Schmidt asked a question about the facility outside of Lincoln. Mr. McVey said dispensaries are just selling cannabis. He said cities and towns are doing exactly what we're doing today.

Alderman Schmidt had a question about language on a specific slide.Relating to the numbers.

Alderman Bateman said we do not have a facility right now, that is just a cultivation facility on the outside of town. Mr. McVey continued saying recreational marijuana has been consumed, will be consumed in the City of Lincoln. He said come 2020, that marijuana is going to come in much fancier packaging. He referenced the potential booth for the local economy.

He talked about converting dollars from the black market into a licensed, regulated retail channel. City Administrator Schmidt asked why someone would pay more money to buy it legally thanthey are paying to buy it illegally. She said it makes sense to her that those who are paying less won't want to pay more with taxes, etc. He said the black market will not recede immediately. He said eventually marijuana will likely become cheaper in a licensed retail store, the quality will be better and the selection will be much greater.

Mrs. Glosser said the state is anxious to get tax revenue off of this so they will not want to see a continued black market.

Alderman Bateman said the only thing that remains illegal, it is only legal when sold in a legal, regulated way. He said there is a lot of this that is still illegal and will remain illegal. He said it will drive the illicit market out. Alderman Keller asked a question. Mrs. Glosser said there is a $5,000 nonrefundable application, there will be a security firm to write a security plan, they have a partnership covered to fill gaps. She said the community reinvestment with the community will be a big part of their

application.That they are doing the best that they can for the community and that the community will be supporting them. Mr. McVey then weighed in.He said a strength of this application will show ties to the community. This is what the state wants to see. Mrs. Glosser said this is going to be a really strong application.

Alderman Keller said this is still a federal law on the federal level, he wanted to know if the city would still be on the hook or be liable for disobeying a federal law. Mr. McVey saidit would be terrible political move for the country to crack down on marijuana laws.

More discussion continued, with Alderman Parrott citing homelessness rates in Denver. Mr. McVey rebutted about housing prices in Denver.

Mr. Paul Carder spoke again but some of what he said about RSO's was off microphone and [inaudible]. Treasurer Conze asked about the number of counties - there are roughly 22 counties, with three dispensaries per county, it is west Central Illinois.Mrs.Glosser said it was a big area. She saidif Lincoln was lucky enough to get a dispensary,they would be pulling in customers from out of town.

Some dispensaries are putting them in a strategic place - there is tourism element and draw that could provide synergy for other businesses.

Mr. McVey then continued with his presentation - hitting on valid concerns and the impact to the city on usage rates. He said when walking into a retail store, the state will come down hard on places selling to minors. Making it harder for underage kids to get their hands on this. He said this will not be an issue like they have in Oregonwhere there are more dispensaries than there are Starbucks'.

He said the effect on people is not like alcohol, it will lower their inhibitions. He said there is no physical addiction that comes along with marijuana. He said if you look at the laws for the states, licensed dispensaries will be one of the most secure places in town. Mrs. Glosser said in some places they are seeing property values rise around dispensaries. Mr. McVey said, "Yes, these are nice places, they are attracting money. . .they do tend to increase property value. He said it will be illegal for anyone to consume marijuana outside of their own home. He said you can't use it in your car, outside in a park - only inside a private residence. He then wanted to address their request to set up a marijuana dispensary in Lincoln - he said this offers them a unique opportunity to present their own unique skills and strength and to own their own business. He said it is not a cash grab. They have a professional interest in the City of Lincoln.They think setting something up allows them to collect business from people in town and up and down the interstate. He saidit's really more than just a professional move, he saidit allows him to come back to be closer to his family. He called it a unique opportunity, he has local ties. He talked about those local ties and his incentive to come to Lincoln to run a business. He said he would not want to do it on a way that negative impacts the community. He said Lincoln is the right market for the culture of their business.

Alderman Parrott asked Chief Paul Adams about his research about crime - saying he thought crime would go up and there would be an increased cost to help with the costs of crime, more costs with personnel and such - he wanted to get a better understanding.

Chief Adams said the DUl's and traffic accidents and fatalities . .. he said it's going to happen here, are there going to be robberies? Yes, he said it's going to be expensive and you're going to have a black­ market sale, even if it becomes legal. People will be allowed to possess 30 grams, he said you're going to have those problems, the bad thing is, until things settle down, over the next few years - you're going to have problems.

He said if we can have something locally to support law enforcement and our fire department, he trailed off. Mrs. Glosser weighed in on the reality of enforcing the new laws .

Mrs. Adams said we have problems with mental health issues now, he said in Colorado there were around 9,973 visits that came in from cannabis use, he said the edibles provide more psychotic issues. He said with marijuana you're tripping that trigger a little bit sooner.He said there will be more problems transporting people to the hospital and the beds will fill up a little sooner. He said that number was from 2012.

Mr. McVey said what he had said about edibles, is true, as it pertains to portions. He said Illinois being on the cusp of that - he did not think the city would see such an increased rate in people going to the hospital.

Mrs. Glosser touched on how nice it was that other states have come before them.

Alderman Schimidt asked if it would be more harmful to the city than if it were in any other place. Chief Adams said he could not sayif he believed it would be any more harmful. He saidIt was on the   council's shoulders if they wanted to have dispensary or not. Alderman Keller said this comes incumbent upon the city if they want to prohibit the sale or publicly open it up and say,"We are open for business," in that regard. He proposed putting it on the future Committee of the Whole agenda (COW).

Alderman Welch asked about the portions. Consumers would be limited to one ounce per day. Mr. Welch said when he was under age it was not hard getting access to beer. He said you're going to see the same thing happen here with that frequency.

Mr. McVey said it is incumbent upon your local operators, to operate above the law. He said the state will crack down fast and it will crack down hard. Mr. Carder asked about items at the dispensary. They will be anonymous purchases. Mrs. Glossser said the auditing process was tough.

Alderman Welch was curious about their research on increased costs of law enforcement and emergency response in relation to the revenue that is generated. He posed a few hypotheticals.

Mr. McVey did not want to provide a number he would not defend. He said it comes back to whether you have the dispensary here or not, as the marijuana will be legal.

Alderman Welch said so you stated that they can get one ounce per day? He said as far as he was aware, that was where they were at. A dispensary has the right to refuse sales.

Alderman Bateman asked about crime increases, he wanted to know if the theft of cigarettes has gone up when packs went up to $8 per pack.Chief Adams said more people are going out of state and buying it in order to avoid the taxes.Mr. Bateman said tobacco use is more addictive than marijuana.

He posed putting a step one, step two and step three on the next agenda - to begin outlining the council's regulations and an ordinance to controlthe hours, where the dispensary can be etc. He said a mayor of an adjacent town is already on top of this, he wanted this put on the agenda for the next voting session in order to get ahead. He highlighted why the city is in a strong position to house a dispensary. He thinks delaying or waiting will put the city behind the eight ball.

Alderman Parrott wanted to make comments off of that saying recently we've done some things pretty rushed. He said this he'd like some contacts from mental health to talk about the data that they have. He said there is drug problem at the high schooland in the community. He did not want to rush into this, he said there are more options than the, "All mighty tax dollar."

He referenced alcohol related deaths in the community, and people trying to get horns removed on the trains passing through town. Mr. Parrott referenced Mrs. Rohlfs' concern for the youth too. He said there will be bodily harm and death. He wanted to bring in the mental health people. Mr. Parrott said he volunteers at the women's prison in town for their drug rehab program. He said everyone of those ladies -they didn't start with heroin or cocaine. He said he did not, "want to rush into this as a councilman," and he wanted to caution the council.

Mayor Goodman asked what kind of location they would be wanting to look into in a city. Mrs.Glosser said 1,500 to 2,000 square feet, a place with ample parking, an area the city wants to see up scaled, a place that will have synergy with other businesses. They would want to do the site selection with the city. She calledit a, "Well-weaved strategy."

Mayor Goodman asked how the councilwanted to proceed.

Mr. Bateman wanted to see it on the voting session agenda, and they could table it as needed.He wanted to take the first step forward in whether they were or were NOT going to do this. He called it a one-time chance to capitalize on this. He said, "We control the destiny." We have the control and Idon't think we should kick the can down the road, but we can table it if we are not ready to vote.

Alderman Parrot said, "We are not ready to vote." He did not want to push this too quickly, he did not think this was something the councilshould do.

They will be coming to Springfield, Bloomington, Peoria, Danville - the representatives would have to keep their options open.

Mayor Goodman said people will drive 30 minutes to get it regardless. The deadline is by October 1, for a municipality to taxit at three percent -as a means to get their foot in the door. Mrs. Glosser did not want to pass up on this opportunity.

Alderman Bateman wanted to congratulate Paul Carder for coming forward. Mr. Bateman said the money is being spent elsewhere in these towns.

They will not be a medical dispensary, but they will offer discounts to medical marijuana users. Alderman Welch said what he thinks the council has been tasked with is - is this recreational marijuana and edibles -will they come into the city based on our decision.Mr.Welch said they are coming in regardless. He then askedif they nad tne capability of regulating, he then said, steve is right," that there are

people looking at the financial aspect of this. He said it's coming regardless as there is a market for it. It will be, he said, "A very wise decision to capitalize on that." He said we are constantly looking for a revenue stream for the city, and these are things we should be looking at.

Mr.Keller said maybe not the next voting session, but the next COW. And then public can come forward. Then by the next voting session they could make a decision.Alderman Welch followed up about inviting someone from mental health.

Solar Energy Panels Presentation: 

Alderman Bateman introduced the next speakers - who passed out packets of information about a solar garden. Laurayn Farwell and Anthony Fotopoulos with Keystone Power Holdings Inc.said they met the city administrator at a conference.

This is about developing a solar array,maximum two megawatts - there would be a lot of usage. This is not a capital expense for the city, it is net metered.They take on the expense of building,developing and financing it. You go green, you get a lower rate, you make payments lower than your current rate, and you're agreeing to buy power at a fixed rate. It's a 25-year contract.

Mr. Fotopoulos outlined with the packet contained, he said the state did not know how they were going to continue to pay for each block. There is no capital investment from the city, but what they tell their customers is the review the proposals and legal documents - there is a time investment and on page five there was information on Keystone, the founders and information on the power purchase agreement. It's a 25-year contract, he called this the biggest risk from the city's perspective.

The contract is so long, due to the dedicate usage, according to Ms. Farewell.

All though it is long, there are option to buy it out, according to Mr.Fotopoulos.The fault at the end of the term will be taken away . He said it is typical that they see that. Money is already set aside to pay for that - that was the power purchase agreement.

On page six is a high-level layout - the size and the system. He said there is a strip in the property records that the town owns. He said there are economies of scale, one megawatt is five acres - roughly 1O acres including the fencing all the way around it, but it does not have to be two megawatts. In Illinois you can go up to 11O percent of what you use. He said it could be half this or it could be less.

He said half of this could work. He said they're working on Freeport right now, they are working with 1.2 megawatts. He said we'd have to find a place to put it. He said it could be released from the farmer - or there are some places that the town owns. He said this was to give the council an idea of what they could do. He said but, "It's a great place to put solar."

More examples continued about the various needs of city buildings.Mr.Fotopoulos said the new facilities building was looked at - it was too small 250 is their cutoff point. They could look at the facility again,but just on its own, they would not recommend it.

Mr. Fotopoulos continued to work through the packet explaining what was on each page - including electrical usage.How much they could go up to (90 percent of usage) without going over.

Each year production would degrade (a half a percent per year). It would save a bit on the police station, but not a whole lot. He then weighed in on the sewage treatment plant.

Alderman Keller wanted to know why Keystone was better than their competitors. They are building in Freeport, Illinois, other cities and villages too. Mr. Fotopoulos said they'd be happy to provide references. He said their buyouts are good, not everyone gets the buyouts over time - he also said their price is good, thereisn't a lot of fluff in their business, not a lot of marketing.

Alderman Parrott asked a question about a site in Springfield. Mr. Bateman said it is Turaskey's. He then said Country Bob's invested in solar at their own business in Centralia - they power their entire plant with solar and it will be entirely paid off in eight years, rather than 15. Mr. Bateman said he appreciated Mrs. Kavelman handing him this project. He said it was right up his alley.

Mr. Fotopoulos said they would be ready to work immediately and that they could provide references. They could also give examples on the east coast about what examples they own.

Mrs. Kavelman said she was impressed with the presentation at an economic development conference she attended this year and that was why she pursued them.

Alderman Welch said just so - and he could have this completely wrong, but so -what you're proposing out at the wastewater treatment facility is current farmland - he wanted to know what revenue is generated on the land annually.

Mr. Conzo said it is in the $6,000 range per acre. Mr.Welch said they want to put the facility on city property and then tum around and sell the energy back to the city at a discount. He then asked about the incentives. Ameren and ComEd have to buy it. There are also tax credits including the Solar Renewable Energy Tax credit.

Mr. Fotopoulos said the city does not have to take the option, he would look - but thereis a certain depreciation. He would run the numbers. At the end you do not have to buy it. Alderman Hoinacki said if we're locked into a rate what happens when someone comes in and offers lower energy prices. Mr. Fotopoulos said there is no one expecting power prices to plummet.

He said the only gotcha in this is that it is a long-term contract. Sean with Veolia came forward and called for an RFP, he said there are only 13 watts out there at the waste water and treatment plant. Those were his recommendations. He was very into solar. Water and waste water are the biggest single user of energy in the country.

Alderman Welch said he went back and looked at the municipal aggregation rates. He said this council tends to be very leery of 25-year agreements on most of anything. Alderman Welch asked him what he thought the future of solar would be.

Mr. Fotopoulos said the cost of solar is continuing to drop. He said if money is saved over the long­ term, and there is decent capital return, then it works and could continue after 25-year:s . The solar panels are warranted for 25-years . Efficiency goes up every year. He said it almost never pays to take a producing asset and upgrade it.

Mr. Fotopoulos said he believed there would be a lot more solar coming. And there is only so much land.

Alderman Bateman said,"So the next step moving forward," would be an RFPfor a two megawatt solar facility on the 40 acres, he wanted to point out that the 40 acres they are looking at is significantly prone to flooding. He said they just need someone to put together and RFP going forward and he wanted it put together as soon as possible. He wanted to move forward. The council agreed. Alderman Bateman askedif they wanted him to work with Sean.

Request to Permit the Lincoln Knights of Columbus #1250 to collect donations for the Annual

Intellectual Disability Drive on September 20, 2019,from 8 5 p.m.and on September 21, 2019,from 9 a.m. to 1p.m.,at the corners of Broadway and Mclean Streets,Pulaski and Mclean Streets,Pulaski and South Kickapoo Streets, and Broadway and North Kickapoo Streets:

The item will be placed on the consent agenda.

Resolution for Emergency Street and Sewer Repair at Keokuk and Hennepin Streets, estimated cost of $64,812:

Sean of Veolia gave a rundown of what the issue is. He said the ground underneath the streetis dropping, but it is 11feet deep. He is afraid there will be hole opened up in the street. Mayor Goodman has already signed the document. Then once signed, it can authorize the city administrator to order the work . It would be an emergency resolution, this exceed their $20,000 spending limit - the longer the problem sits there, the longer this problem is opened to the public.

This bypasses the voting session. This is an emergency declaration. Mr. Bateman said this same issue

is in the alley behind The Blue Dog. He wanted Veolia to authorize this spending at the same time. This would save the city $3,000 if the equipment only had to be moved into the city one time. This is in the middle of the street and goes back toward Hennepin. There is over $300,000 in a sewer improvement fund.

Mr. Anthony Harper introduced himself, he is the project manager for the waste water sewer and treatment plant for Veolia.

The item will be placed on the agenda.

Comcast 10-Year Agreement with the City of Lincoln,effective September 1,2019:

Comcast/Lincoln College/City of Lincoln Three-Way Agreement to Provide Public Broadcast Services to the Channel 5 Public Broadcast Station - four City Council Meetings per Month:

Alderman Bateman said, "We voted it down." He said we voted, "No." Alderman Welch wanted to join a meeting with Alderman Schmidt, the city attorney and city administrator to meet with Comcast.

Overall Update of the Progress on the City's Portion of the Fifth Street Road Project and Eminent Domain Letters from the City Sent to Non-Responsive Fifth Street Road Property Owners:

City Administrator Kavelman said the letters have gone out. She said all the properties are in influx, they sent out 15 letters.One letter did not go out and one is coming in.Someone came in and signed. She said she would have a better answer once some of the return slips come back.

Drainage Concern with the City of Lincoln's Property/Lincoln Futbol Club Lease/Lincoln YMCA Soccer Program Sub-lease of the Current Soccer Fields and Lincoln Industrial Park Board:

City Administrator Kavelman said there was a letter going out to the individuals asking them to do something. A letter is going out to the Futbol field, asking them to move the pilings, in order to try to correct the drainage. They either needed to relocate or help mitigate the problem with the landowner. There is no guarantee this will help, however, this is an attempt.

Committees Structure: 

Alderman Bateman revisited the idea of committees and gave examples. Mr. Bateman said we're all struggling. There are issues that could have been taken care of a long time ago had the conversation continued. He wanted to as a committee talk about items rather than keep putting it on a COW.

Alderman Schmidt said it seems already some committees have been formed by Mr. Bateman. Mr. Hoblit weighed in talking about adhering to the Open Meetings Act, if there's a committee that consists of two aldermen, or if there is a committee that is formed with two or more aldermen.

Alderman Bateman said he had this discussion with another alderman is that it needs to be more than two allowed, comes down to a vote and if an idea is able to come before the council.

Alderman Hoinacki said he liked the idea of it being as-needed only. He did not see so much of a structure. Mr. Bateman said he is saying, "As-needed." He was suggesting increasing the aldermen who sit on a committee. He said still, "As-needed," when a topic warrants a committee.

Alderman Keller said who will be responsible for attending the meet!ngs and recording the meeting - in order to comply with the Open Meetings Act -Alderman Bateman said whether, "She" the recorder needs to be present . . .Alderman Keller said he was not arguing against committees, he said there is work that needs to be done, but he didn't want to do something that could get the same results without

it being so complicated. More discussion ensued and Treasurer Conzo weighed in about the potential need to meet over the tax levee, he said it would be helpful to have a committee in place to work on the budget.

Alderman Welch wanted to recommend they continue to move forward, with committees formed as topics come up. He listed off a bunch of committees that he said were working.


Mayor Goodman asked if anyone had any announcements.

  • The next meeting is on Tuesday, due to Labor Day
  • Comcast announcements about Turner Classic Movies and Nicktoons


There being no further announcements to come before the council, Alderman Welch made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Alderman Hoinacki. Mayor Goodman adjourned the meeting at 8:58 p.m.
