Chapter VI

CAPITAL FACILITIES

Capital Facilities

VI- 1 INTRODUCTION

Purpose

The Capital Facilities Chapter contains the capital facilities element, one of the six elements required for Mason County's Comprehensive Plan under the Growth Management Act (GMA)

(36.70A.070 RCW). This element provides an inventory of existing conditions and publicly owned facilities by quantifying capital facilities currently provided by Mason County or by other jurisdictions operating in the County.

The chapter also contains goals and policies for the capital facilities operated by Mason County, except for transportation facilities, which are discussed in the Transportation Chapter.

The capacity of the County facilities and the level of service they provide is discussed and compared with the County's desired levels of service. The "level of service" is an objective measure of how well services are provided to the public. Deficiencies and improvement needs are identified, improvement costs are estimated, projects are scheduled for six and 20-year planning horizons, and a six-year finance plan and possible financing options are discussed.

Besides the City of Shelton, there are other public organizations and special districts that have capital facilities and taxing authority which exist in the county. These include the school districts, hospital district, port districts, cemetery district, regional library system, and fire districts. These districts have their own governing body and capital facilities planning. The county coordinated the comprehensive plan with these bodies, through meetings, correspondence, and by providing draft of the comprehensive plan to these districts for comment. A list of these districts is provided as follows:

Organization and Contents

The following section of this chapter, Vl-2, includes a list of goals and policies that provides the direction for future capital facility decisions for Mason County.

Subsequent sections, Vl-3 through 8, profile and analyze seven types of capital facilities in the County, as follows:

• Wastewater and Wastewater Utilities

• Solid Waste Utility

• Parks and Recreation Facilities

• County Administration Buildings

• Police and Criminal Justice Buildings

• Stormwater Management Facilities

Sections 3 through 8 each includes a brief description of the existing systems and public entities that provide the facilities. An assessment of future facility needs is also developed for each category of facility. The last section of this chapter, Vl-1 0, discusses financing for county owned and operated facilities for the six-year financial planning period 2006 to 2011.

Facility Needs

A number of methods can be used to determine Mason County's capital facility needs over the next six and 20-year GMA planning periods. As not all capital facilities require the same level of analysis to determine needed improvements, different analytical techniques can be employed to identify facility needs as long as they accomplish the goal of determining future need for the capital facilities.

While the state Growth Management Act requires that level of service (LOS) standards be established to identify transportation improvements, the need for other capital facilities can be assessed using either LOS or planning level assumptions (WAC 365-195-315).

August, 1998- (updated in 2006; July 31, 2007; January 15, 2008, July 29, 2008) Capital Facilities

The advantage of using LOS standards is the ability to quantify deficiencies and identify improvement needs. The LOS can also be used as a performance standard for concurrency by comparing the service level being provided by a capital facility against the quantitative LOS standard. The service is considered deficient if it does not meet the service level standard that the County has determined it wants to deliver to its residents and users. The LOS approach makes the most sense where there are easily quantifiable facilities or where the state has defined the standards, such as for sewer and water facilities.

The less rigorous planning assumptions approach also has advantages. The capital facilities planning assumptions are not quantitative measures of facility need. Instead, they identify facility improvements based upon the need to serve growth and development anticipated in the land use element. This approach works best where identification of quantitative measures would be difficult, where there are no statewide standards, or where the necessary information or data to apply quantitative measures would be difficult or too time-consuming to obtain. Facilities such as parks and recreation and stormwater facilities might best be handled with this approach.

Financing

Facility needs are identified, and a six-year finance plan is developed, in section Vl-1 0 for the following County-owned-and-operated facilities. Finance plans for stormwater management in the Allyn and Belfair Urban Growth Areas also provided in Section 8-

Costs, Schedule and Implementation of the Allyn Urban Growth Area Stormwater

Management Plan and in Section 8Costs, Schedule and Implementation of the Belfair

This section also includes the results of facility planning efforts completed by the County for County administrative buildings, police and criminal justice facilities, and solid waste facilities. Financing needs and options are included for these facilities as well. The section appendix includes the capital facilities plans for Grapeview, Hood Canal, North

Mason, Pioneer, and Shelton School Districts, to facilitate orderly growth and coordination in the provision of future capital facility needs.

Concurrency Management

One of the Growth Management Act goals, referred to as "concurrency," is the provision of infrastructure facilities and services to serve projected growth at the time such growth occurs, or within a reasonable time afterwards. This starts with identifying specific facility needs using the strategies previously discussed. Another important aspect of concurrency is the ability to monitor the development of infrastructure improvements to assess whether they keep pace with approved development.

Concurrency management, as it is called, involves a set of land use and permit approval processes designed to ensure facilities and services keep pace with growth. In some cases, development codes could be enacted to require that specific LOS standards be promulgated through the development of identified improvements.

In other cases, restrictions to growth may be imposed until appropriate service standards for capital facilities are achieved. This might be the approach required for unincorporated areas within the City of Shelton Urban Growth Area (UGA), for instance.

Land use applications for certain development proposals, in areas targeted for future growth, could have their approvals withheld pending concomitant development of appropriate urban service level facilities (e.g., sewer facilities). The municipality would be responsible for managing the concurrent development of these urban services. This can be accomplished by requiring that individual developers fund and implement needed improvements. Under this arrangement, the final tenant (e.g., homebuyer or building purchaser) would ultimately pay for the new facilities through a higher initial purchase price or through a periodic assessment.

Mason County's policies for concurrency management are contained in the following section, Vl-2.

WATER AND WASTEWATER UTILITIES

Introduction

The County owns and operates small water and sewer systems for the Harstene Pointe and

Rustlewood communities, and the water system for Beard's Cove community. In addition, the

County operates a medium-sized wastewater collection system and treatment plant for the North

Bay Case Inlet area. This area was defined through studies of the area contributing human sewage contamination to Case Inlet, and the system service area was set accordingly. In the smaller community-based systems, there is no planned expansion beyond the existing platted lots. These systems currently provide services to approximately 1200 customers, with the potential to serve an additional 100. The North Bay Case Inlet system provides service to approximately 950 customers, with additional capacity to serve an estimated 850 additional equivalent residential units within the existing service area.

The following "Water" and "Wastewater'' sections provide project-level detail on the planned improvements necessary to meet state regulatory guidelines in the provision of water and wastewater services for these systems. Each project in each section is accompanied by a separate project sheet, which provides a description, and justification, along with a table depicting the estimated costs and funding sources for planning period 2008 through 2013. A summary table that provides overall costs and funding sources for each water and sewer system follows each section.

1)

2)

3)

4)

Financing the planned utility improvements requires the use of grants, loans, and capital reserves. The specific combination of funds, and the availability of grants and loans, may affect user rates for each system as well as the timing on projects. The ability to initiate specific projects will be assessed annually based on the urgency of need, reserve funds available, and commitments from funding agencies to provide grants and/or loans. The decisions about whether or not to proceed with any planned project is the decision of the Mason County Board of

Commissioners for consideration in the annual budgeting and rate-setting process. To the extent possible, projects will be funded through:

Rate revenues (capital reserves)

Grants;

Low interest loans; or

Some combination of 1-3 above.

Project costs shown in each section range in accuracy from + or- 40% to + or- 15%. Each project cost sheet identifies the accuracy of the estimated costs shown, based on the following scale:

• "Planning Level"- The least accurate of costs estimates, in the range of+ or- 40%. Cost estimates at this level are usually based on a project concept and some assessment of relative scale, or annual program amounts commensurate with a level of activity sufficient to accomplish the intent of the program over time.

• "Design Report" - Moderate accuracy, in the range of+ or- 30%. Based on design report evaluation of options and an assessment of project elements and associated costs.

<~~ "Engineer's Estimate"- Most accurate estimate, in the range of+ or -15%. These estimates

Capital Facilities

Future System Development

Included in the wastewater sections of this document are additional projects that are not associated with the existing County-owned utility systems. These projects represent efforts to provide utility services to areas which have been identified as problems with regard to density and water quality, but where no established systems are currently in place. There are two such areas where the County is currently investing resources in the long-term resolution of identified problems:

Belfair Urban Growth Area

The County has adopted a sewer connection strategy for the Belfair UGA. The strategy is identified on Maps 1 though 4 and Appendix B. The strategy identifies phasing, line location, and environmental constraints, and covers total build out of the UGA. The development of the infrastructure necessary to serve the entire Belfair UGA will be financed through a combination of grants, loans, monthly utility rates, system development charges, and developer contributions.

The Belfair area is divided into four phases with the initial area to be sewered is the Belfair corridor area, followed by the Old Belfair Highway, the Newkirk Connection, and the Southern

Connection (Map 1 ). Map 2 shows the year in which development will occur. Map 3 illustrates capital improvements needed in each of the areas. Appendix C illustrates the cost for each of the areas. Appendix A outlines the affordability of the sewer system for the community.

Hoodsport /Skokomish Area.

The development of a sewer facility plan has been completed for the Hoodsport Rural Activity

Center. Additional sewer planning efforts are now under way for the Potlatch State Park and

Tribal areas. These planning efforts will address options for collection and treatment of the more densely populated Hoodsport area, the State Park and portions of the tribal lands. The funding for any recommended system development will initially be provided through grants and/or loans until there is an established rate base to provide payments for the system.

Description: Annual improvements program for system facilities, buildings, and grounds.

Projects may include small piping improvements, pump stations, lighting, exterior painting, and other general improvements.

Justification: The treatment plant and system construction provided basic functionality, however the facilities and system need improvements from time to time to correct deficiencies and improve operational capabilities. Plant operations and system maintenance staff are not equipped to address these types of improvements in addition to the plant operations. It is also anticipated that the work can be completed professionally and more expediently through contracts with specialty firms.

Project Name: Minor Facility and System Improvements Program

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: Annual improvements program for system facilities, buildings, and grounds.

Projects may include small piping improvements, pump stations, lighting, exterior painting, and other general improvements.

Justification: The treatment plant and system construction provided basic functionality, however the facilities and system need improvements from time to time to correct deficiencies and improve operational capabilities. Plant operations and system maintenance staff are not equipped to address these types of improvements in addition to the plant operations. It is also anticipated that the work can be completed professionally and more expediently through contracts with specialty firms.

Project Name: Mobile Home Park Pump Station Improvements

Estimates: Planning level

Description: Upgrade existing 3 HP pumps that pass solids with 5 HP submersible grinder pumps to improve the pump station performance and capacity. Add an emergency generator for use during power outages.

Justification: The existing pumps require additional maintenance and are subject to periodic clogging. They are also undersized to handle the increased flow due to expansion of the original sub-basin and unanticipated levels of infiltration and inflow. The emergency power supply is needed to prevent overflows during prolonged power outages

Project Name: Pump Station Overflow Reroute

Capital Facilities

Estimates: Planning level

Description: Analyze options, then design and construct the piping and receiving basins to detain pump station overflows resulting from failures at the primary transmission line booster pumps.

Justification: The current pump stations are situated near receiving waters that could be affected in the event of a pump failure and overflow. This project will analyze the options for routing this potential overflow to artificial detention ponds, rather than it reaching the surface waters where the effects would be much more pronounced. Design and construction are included in the costs following the initial analysis of options.

Estimates: Planning level

Description: The Treatment plant does not currently have a secure building suitable for parking vehicles and equipment.

Justification: Currently Utility vehicles are parked at the Mason County Landfill. When employees report to work they must first go to the Mason County landfill to pick up their vehicles.

Operators currently arrive at the landfill at 8:00AM, pick up their vehicle then travel to the plant arriving at around 8:45AM then leave about 3:45 PM to check out at the landfill by 4:30 PM. If employees are called out for emergency repairs they must first pick up a service truck at the landfill. Having service vehicles on site shortens emergency response times and will improve employee efficiencies.

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: Annual program to reduce the flow of surface water and groundwater entering the collection system. Projects may include system inspections, manhole replacements, pipe replacement, and manhole or pipe connection sealing and grouting.

Justification: Federal and state regulations require treatment systems to remove 85% of the contaminants from flows coming to the treatment plant. When inflow and infiltration is excessive, the plant cannot achieve the required standard, resulting in potential permit violations. In addition, valuable plant capacity is used to treat flows, which do not require treatment. Plant operational costs also increase with the excess flows due to infiltration and inflow.

Estimates: Design Report

Description: Pre design and Design work to upgrade the wastewater plant has been completed. Construction of improvements to address new water quality standards as well as rehabilitate aging plant systems will begin in January 2008 and be completed November 2008.

Improvements will include influent headworks, solids separation, sludge treatment, effluent disinfection, remote system monitoring, and pumping capacities.

Justification: The existing plant is over 30 years old, and many of the main components are worn to the point that rebuilding them would be more costly than replacement. In addition, regulatory expectations for treatment performance have increased since the original plant was constructed, requiring upgrades to the former treatment methods.

Description: This program is designed to provide annual incremental improvements to the water distribution system to ensure its continued viability and integrity. Annual projects may include the following: addition and replacement of fire hydrants, replacement of small sections of pipe, new or replacement valves and looping, well and pumping station improvements and the installation of service meters.

Justification: Over the past two decades, maintenance activity for the water system has consisted primarily of leak repairs and service repairs or replacement. To ensure the continued performance of the system, it is necessary to replace key components as they wear out. These small projects for pipe replacement are beyond the current staff resources and may be much more efficiently performed by outside contractors. State Law now requires service meters. In

2008

Mason County will begin installation of service meters on existing services. Finally, several of the fire hydrants on this system are in need of replacement and many need modifications to accommodate 4" storz fittings. s 1ma e ro ec

Description: This program is designed to provide annual incremental improvements to the existing water system facilities to ensure their long-term integrity. Annual projects may include the following: storage tank exterior coatings, pump house structures, fencing, roofing, driveway surfaces, site electrical improvements, etc.

Justification: In order to preserve the storage and pumping systems, we must maintain the facilities that surround them. If we do not pursue preventative maintenance on these facilities the costs to bring them up to an acceptable condition will be much higher. These facilities are also the publicly visible portion of our system, therefore, it is important that the facilities are kept in good condition.

Project Name: Beards Cove Booster Pump

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: Installation of a booster pump to improve water pressure to residences near the water storage tank and provide additional fire flow to the entire community.

Justification: Currently only the top 16.7 feet or 120,000 gallons of the 60' 400,000 gallon

Storage tank can be considered for usable storage. The total requirement for this system identified in the 2002 water system plan is 250,050 gallons. That document identified fire flow as

500 gpm for 30 minutes or 15,000 gallons. That number has increased to 45,000 gallons under the code adopted by the county since the water plan was written. Technically the system is

150,000 gallons deficient on usable storage. The addition of a booster pump to provide pressure to all homes with an elevation within 57' of the storage tank base will allow for the use of the systems entire water storage capability and meet the system's storage requirements.

Description: Install a Stationary Generator at Well #1

Justification: The December 15, 2006 windstorm knocked out power to the Hartstene Pointe community for approximately seven days. In addition a secondary power line to the well houses and community center faulted and PUD crews could not repair it until all primary power lines were repaired. County Staff worked around the clock to prevent the sewage pump stations from overflowing and needed the same portable generator used to power well number one. It was realized at that time that the plan to provide emergency power to all the facilities using one portable generator was flawed as a result of the failure to compensate for sewer system

Infiltration & Inflow when calculating the needed frequency that the sewage pump stations needed pumping.

SOLID WASTE UTILITY

Introduction

Capital Facilities

Mason County's solid waste utility provides transfer and disposal operations for solid waste at four transfer station locations, and eight "blue box" drop off sites for household recyclable materials. The largest transfer facility is located outside Shelton on Eels Hill Road. Materials collected from the other smaller stations at Hoodsport, Union, and Belfair, are transported to the

Shelton facility for shipping to Centralia, WA. From there, the material is long-hauled via railroad to Roosevelt Landfill in Klickitat County, located in Eastern Washington.

Household hazardous wastes (HHW) are collected and disposed of by Mason County staff at the Shelton transfer facility. Residents in North Mason County can take their HHW to the Kitsap

County transfer station. This arrangement is established through interlocal agreement and

Mason County pays approximately $60 per customer for collection and disposal or materials from residents who take their materials to the Kitsap County facility.

The Shelton transfer facility is located at the former Mason County Landfill. The current utility provides post-closure monitoring and capital construction in support of the closed landfill. The

Shelton facility receives wastes collected by private and municipal haulers operating inside

Mason County.

The Belfair and Shelton transfer facilities are nearing capacity in terms of the tonnage they can effectively handle on a daily basis. Growth in the Belfair area and elsewhere in the County continues to impact operations at these facilities and capacity improvements will need to be addressed in the near future.

The following pages provide details on specific projects proposed for the current capital facilities planning period. Project estimates range in accuracy from+ or- 40% to+ or- 15%. Each project cost sheet identifies the accuracy of the estimated costs shown based on the following scale:

• "Planning Level"- The least accurate of costs estimates, in the range of+ or- 40%. Cost estimates at this level are usually based on a project concept and some assessment of relative scale, or annual program amounts commensurate with a level of activity sufficient to accomplish the intent of the program over time.

• "Design Report"- Moderate accuracy, in the range of+ or- 30%. Based on design report evaluation of options and an assessment of project elements and associated costs.

• "Engineer's Estimate"- Most accurate estimate, in the range of+ or -15%. These estimates are based on a project design or significant completion of the design work.

Estimates: Design Report

Description: Annual program to ensure continued operational effectiveness of transfer station facilities and preserve existing assets. Improvements will include: road resurfacing, facility roof replacements, minor building modifications, storage or handling facility construction, or modifications to comply with regulatory requirements or preserve capacity.

Justification: Normal operation of transfer station facilities requires ongoing facility improvements to existing fixed assets to maintain overall operational capabilities. Providing an annual program and funding to complete these improvements is more efficient from an administrative perspective and prudent in terms of ensuring the longevity of existing assets.

Project Name: Belfair Household Hazardous Waste Facility Improvements

Estimates: Design Report

Description: Design and construct a facility to provide household hazardous waste collection services to north county residents.

Justification: Currently north county residents must take their household hazardous waste to the Kitsap County facility. This service is provided through an interlocal agreement that costs

$65.00 per visit. The costs are the same no matter what type of material is dropped off at their facility. Our own facility would save us considerable cost for disposal of less harmful materials such as motor oil or latex paints. Operation of a county-owned facility would allow us to tailor the hours of operation and types of material accepted to decrease these costs.

Project Name: Transfer Station System Improvements

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: This facility serves as a hub for all the garbage in Mason County. When originally constructed in the early 1990's, throughput was a fraction of current levels. In order to safely and efficiently serve the needs of the public and our commercial accounts, a second access road with a scale is needed. Other minor improvements and enhancements will be required to maintain the system over the next few years, such as road work, tip walls, and typical wear and tear.

Justification: Over the past 15 years, the number of customers has grown dramatically, along with tons exported. Steps to improve customer safety, reduce wait times, and increase efficiency for commercial customers will allow the facility to postpone major construction for this planning period.

Project Name: Belfair Improvements

Capital Facilities

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: This facility serves the north end of the County by providing residential drop off of wastes and recyclables seven days a week. Growth in the portion of the County is significant, and will likely increase at the current high rate for the near future. Minor improvements and enhancements will be required to maintain the system over the next few years, such as road work, tip walls, and typical wear and tear. A wholly new facility, with a scale and compaction equipment, may be necessary by the end of this planning period.

Justification: Currently, our system is able to support the Belfair area. However, the current and projected growth may exceed the capacity of this facility in the relatively near future. Due to the location, it does not make sense to increase the tonnage without exporting directly to rail, or at least to rail containers. To do so, a new facility would be necessary.

V/.5 PARKS AND RECREATION FACILITIES

System Description

Recreational opportunities in Mason County include parks for day-use activities and overnight camping; fresh and salt water areas for boating and other water sports; facilities and equipment for sports and play activities; and wilderness areas and other open spaces for hiking, hunting, and horseback riding.

Existing parks and recreation facilities in Mason County are available through a variety of public and private entities. Federal and state facilities include camping, boating, and day-use parks.

The County-owned park system includes day-use and water access facilities, sports fields, and related recreational areas. Other agencies providing park and recreational resources include municipalities, port districts, and public schools. Some private recreational facilities are open to the public as well.

County Park Facilities

The County currently manages 18 park properties in Mason County two of which are undeveloped, and three others have large portions that are also undeveloped. Of the developed parks, two are large baseball/softball complexes, five provide saltwater access parks, two are located on freshwater lakes, and three provide upland day use and recreation facilities (see

FIGURE VI.

5-1). In addition to the day use facilities, the County also owns and maintains one above-ground skate park. The conditions of these facilities vary by location, however, significant investment in facilities has been made in the last two years from Real Estate Excise Tax proceeds (REET 2). The capital plan for the next six years continues this trend of investment in park development and facility upgrades. The heavy use and demand from both county and non-

County residents are particularly high during the spring and summer.

In recent years, parks operated by Mason County have received substantial increases in visitors.

Total visits increased 52 percent from 1992 to 1993, from 180,600 to 27 4,500 annual visits.

Nearly half of the total increase was at Sandhill Park, a sports park in Belfair. Sandhill's visitation increased by 230 percent, from 20,300 to 67,000 visits, due in large part to increased use of the park by local baseball, softball, and soccer leagues. Mason County Recreation Area, the largest baseball/softball complex has grown in use the last several years and is now recognized regionally as a preferred site for major tournaments.

There are no facilities for overnight camping throughout the Mason County Parks system. The last county-wide park plan was developed in 1991 and subsequently updated in the late 1990s.

The previous plan recommended two sites for development as overnight camping facilities,

Truman Glick Memorial Park and Mason Lake Park. Camping options will be examined in the long-term development plan being crafted for these and other park properties with large portions of undeveloped land. Mason County developed a new county-wide parks plan in 2006, which includes analysis and recommendations to address recreation needs within the county.

V/.6 COUNTY AND ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDINGS

System Description

Mason County owns several buildings, most of which are located in the City of Shelton, the

County seat. These buildings are used to support general County functions such as internal management, health, public service, and general administration. Other buildings owned by the

County include Memorial Hall, the Cooperative Extension Office, the Mason County

Fair/Convention Center, the Central Shop, the Belfair Annex and the Belfair Shop.

TABLE

Vl.6-1 describes these sites. Locations of the facilities within the Shelton Campus are shown in

FIGURE

Vl.6-1.

Memorial Hall is located in Shelton, a few blocks from the main campus area. The Mason

County Extension Office is located about 3 miles north of Shelton, on the northeast side of

Highway 101, across from the Shelton airport. The Central Shop is located on Johns Prairie

Road near Bayshore. The Belfair Annex is located on Highway 3 in Belfair and the Belfair Shop is situated on the north shore of Hood Canal about 3 miles from Belfair.

Inventory

Mason County's administrative offices and departments housed in the buildings are listed in

TABLE

Vl.6-2. Also provided is a summary of current office area allocations for the County departments and departmental functions.

Most of the County's administrative offices are located in the Shelton Campus, a four-squareblock section of the downtown area. At this location, the County operates from 12 publicly owned buildings. These include the Courthouse, Jail, Juvenile Detention Facility, Building I,

Building II, Building Ill, Building IV, Building V, Building VI, Building VII, Building VIII, and

Building IX. Other county administrative offices are located at Building X (Belfair Annex),

Building XI (Cooperative Extension Building), and the offices at the Mason County Fairgrounds.

Facilitv Needs

Facility needs are being developed through a space planning effort currently being updated by the County. This work is based on an assessment of agency needs related to growth in both the six- and 20-year planning horizons. While planning is continuing, the county has identified the space needs for County administration, law enforcement, and criminal justice facilities. Specific planned improvements for the first six-year planning period and associated financing are detailed in Section Vl.1 0, Finance Plan. Based on the "Space Standards Manual" published by the State of Washington Department of General Administration, 251 square feet are needed per employee. In addition, certain governmental functions have special requirements for facilities.

Currently the county has a deficit in space. Significant additional space will be required over the next six and twenty years if the county is to offset that deficit and meet the future growth. The information is summarized in Table Vl.6-3. Needs analysis and facility planning was done in

1995 and 1996. The background information and analysis can be found in "Update to Mason

County Space Needs Analysis for inclusion in the Mason County and Master Plan update, June

16, 1999."

Vl.7 POLICE AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE FACILITIES

System Description

The Mason County Sheriffs Office provides patrol and detective services to residents of unincorporated Mason County. The Mason County District Court, located in Shelton, handles all

County-jurisdiction cases. Mason County has a juvenile detention or lockdown facility. The

County also has a severe shortage of jail space for adults, resulting in the early release of some offenders.

Inventory

Law Enforcement

The County Sheriff's patrol division has a staff of 30 persons, of which 7 are assigned to the detective division. The Sheriffs Office has a total staff of 92. The staff includes 33 jail employees, 37 police officers, 16 support persons, and 6 administrative persons.

Criminal Activity

In 2004, the Sheriffs Office received 19,046 calls for service. The types of crimes reported in

2002, 2003, and 2004 are shown in

TABLE

V1.7-1. Overall, violent crimes account for approximately eight percent of the criminal activity in Mason County. There was a reduction in the number of violent crimes between 2002 and 2003, followed by a substantial increase in

2004. The majority of crimes committed in Mason County are property. For the past several years, total calls for service have increased, thus limiting staff abilities to perform traffic enforcement duties. As a result, criminal traffic and infraction traffic citations issued countywide were 6,068 in 2004, compared to 6,718 in 1992.

Jail Facilities

The Mason County Jail opened in 1985 with capacity for 45 inmates. In 1989, capacity was increased to 51, and in 1991 it was increased to 58 beds with floor space for 106. In 1993, the average daily jail population was 62. In 2004, the average daily jail population was 95 or 146% over capacity.

Facility Needs

In 1996, the Facilities Steering Committee and the Criminal Justice Working Team, working with a consultant, assessed future County building needs. A report was issued jointly by the Facilities

Steering Committee and Criminal Justice Working Team in 1996, and updated in 1999 ("Mason

County Space Needs Analysis for inclusion in the Mason County Master Plan update, June 16,

1999") which identified four capital facility projects. Space needs are not determined by a simple set of standards but by a comprehensive approach to the criminal justice systems program needs. The projected cost of this plan and potential funding sources are incorporated in the finance plan contained in Section Vl-1 0 of this chapter. A summary of space needs for the next six-year and 20-year planning periods can be located on Table Vl.6-3, in the previous section

V1.6.

V/.8 STORMWATER MANAGEMENT FACILITIES

System Description

Existing stormwater facilities in Mason County include both natural (streams) and manmade

(pipeline) collection and conveyance systems. The existing systems generally handle runoff from

County Roads. The County currently has no stormwater plan or utility. Stormwater is managed primarily through onsite control measures.

Increases in the amount of impervious surfaces, such as rooftops, roads, driveways, and buildings, cause increased stormwater runoff. Forestry practices, such as logging, new roads, and construction, also increase runoff and downstream sedimentation. Storm water runoff, erosion, sedimentation, and flooding problems will likely increase in Mason County as a result of residential and commercial development, particularly in the designated urban growth areas.

Inventory

Mason County has adopted a Stormwater Management Ordinance (Mason County Code

Section 14.48). This ordinance adopts by reference the 1992 edition of the Washington State

Department of Ecology's Stormwater Management Manual, with the exception of the Minimum

Requirements chapter, for use in designing best management practices (BMPs) for new development and other improvements. The ordinance defines specific minimum requirements and other approval standards for development on all ranges of parcel sizes

The City of Shelton has prepared a Surface Water Drainage Utility Master Plan. That master plan identifies existing problems in the city and offers some recommendations for improvements.

The city has scheduled some improvements based on the existing master plan, but the city also intends to update the plan within the six-year financial planning period.

Facility

Needs

In 2006, Mason County commenced the development of a comprehensive countywide

Stormwater Management Plan (referenced hereafter as the Plan). This includes a review of existing Comprehensive Plan Stormwater Policies, amendments to County Stormwater regulations, and a review for consistency with the new Mason County Critical Areas Ordinance

(CAO) and Low Impact Development (LID) Standards. The Plan would address changing state and regional regulatory requirements. This includes the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination

System (NPDES) permit program of the Clean Water Act, that controls water pollution by regulating point sources that discharge pollutants into waters of the United States. Also, the Plan would consider implementation of the 2005-2007 Puget Sound Conservation Plan, and the

Department of Ecology (DOE) 2005 Stormwater Design Manual for Western Washington. The

Plan would address evolving water quality needs affecting Hood Canal and South Puget Sound, and delineate program objectives and identify funding sources to fund Plan implementation.

The Plan includes developing Stormwater Management Plans for the Allyn and Belfair Urban

Growth Areas, and the Hoodsport area. The Stormwater Management Plans for the Allyn and

Belfair Urban Growth Areas have been completed. These plans have been adopted by

Ordinance and are incorporated herein by reference. The Stormwater Management Plan for

Hoodsport is expected to be complete in 2008.

These Stormwater Management Plans assess existing built conditions, and evaluate future infrastructure and capital improvement needs.

Flooding problems in the Skokomish River watershed are being addressed in a Comprehensive

Flood Hazard Management Plan. This plan defines a total program of river maintenance activities, valley creek maintenance measures, flood protection measures, and flood warning and emergency response procedures.

Mason County anticipates that the Skokomish River Watershed Comprehensive Flood Hazard

Management Plan would be completed and adopted in 2007. Focused plans for specific problem areas may need to be developed in the future.

Storm Water Facilities Development

Project Name:

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: Upgrading and construction of storm water facilities around the County will provide treatment and proper control of storm water, reducing the risk of property damage and contamination in our waterways. In support of efforts to implement more current regulations to improve storm water quality, Mason County will be updating Ordinances and applying the new

Department of Ecology standards, beginning with the Allyn, Belfair, Shelton, and Hoodsport areas in 2007/2008, then the Union areas in 2009/2010 and continuing throughout the county in later years. The current Stormwater Management Plans for Allyn, Belfair and Hoodsport are being development now. The Mason County Program is also being developed. Changes to the

CIP projected expenditures and revenues will be updated as the plans are finalize.

Justifications: The criteria for development of storm water facilities will be driven by the population and identified contamination of each area. The State of Washington has identified several areas within Mason County where contamination is effecting the water quality of our bays and lakes.

V/.9 PUBLIC WORKS FACILITIES

Introduction

Mason County Public Works is responsible for engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of approximately 640-miles of county roads. Currently staff is housed on the

Shelton campus, the Central Shop on Johns Prairie Road and the Belfair Shop.

Building 8, located on the Shelton campus, includes administrative services, accounting services, environmental services, engineering and construction services and geographic information services. The Information Services Section of Equipment Rental & Revolving Fund

(ER&R) is located a block away in Building 9. Road Maintenance and the Vehicle Maintenance

Section of ER&R share the Central Shop facility located on Johns Prairie Road approximately 3miles north of Shelton. A small maintenance crew is located at the satellite shop in Belfair to service roads in North Mason County.

Public Works has outgrown the Shelton campus facilities. The buildings located at the central shop are over 50-years old, overcrowded and inefficient. The vehicle maintenance shop lacks several modern amenities like insulation, women's restroom and building ventilation systems. A lack of sufficient storage facilities results in expensive road maintenance equipment being stored outside in the elements.

As a result, Public Works proposes to develop a master plan and construct a multi-use facility to house the entire department. This will result in better communication and coordination of the various sections in the department. A shared multi-use facility will provide more efficient use of space and county resources. The Belfair Shop, however, will continue to operate as a satellite facility.

Financing the planned multi-use facility requires the use of grants, loans, and county road funds.

Project costs shown range in accuracy from + or- 40% to + or- 15%. Each project cost sheet identifies the accuracy of the estimated costs shown, based on the following scale:

• "Planning Level" -The least accurate of costs estimates, in the range of + or- 40%. Cost estimates at this level are usually based on a project concept and some assessment of relative scale, or annual program amounts commensurate with a level of activity sufficient to accomplish the intent of the program over time.

• "Design Report" - Moderate accuracy, in the range of+ or- 30%. Based on design report evaluation of options and an assessment of project elements and associated costs.

• "Engineer's Estimate"- Most accurate estimate, in the range of+ or -15%. These estimates are based on a project design or significant completion of design work.

Project Name: New Belfair Shop

Estimates: Planning Level

Description: Public Works is in the early stages of negotiation to acquire property in the vicinity of Sandhill Elementary School for the location of the new Belfair Shop. The Shop will include a work staging area, vehicle maintenance bay, crews lunch/meeting room, restrooms & shower facilities, offices, vehicle and equipment storage and materials storage.

Justifications: The current Belfair Shop is very old, it is located in a residential neighborhood adjacent to Hood Canal and does not have it's own water source. The Shop is hooked up to the neighbor's well. Concerns have been expressed about the proximity of the material storage to the Canal. The site is woefully inadequate for the road maintenance services being provided to the north end of the County. If the land trade negotiations are successful, there would be no capital outlay for the land and the shop would be in a much more appropriate location.

Description: The County Road Fund owns property on Shelton-Matlock Road that is currently used as a fenced materials and equipment storage yard. The construction of a Pole Barn type

Structure on this site will help to facilitate the efficient deployment of crews and equipment to the south end of the County, particularly during snow and ice conditions. The price below reflects a fully enclosed metal structure.

Justifications: Currently crews assigned to maintain, plow and de-ice the south portion of the

County must go to the Central Shop to get the equipment needed to respond. When doing scheduled maintenance in the south end, the crews end up using valuable working time traveling to and from the Central Shop transporting heavy equipment, vehicles, tools and materials needed for their work. One of the Public Work's long range goals is the placement of satellite maintenance yards in several locations in the county to improve response and efficiency.

Introduction

This section discusses Mason County capital facilities needs and related funding sources. As required under the Growth Management Act (GMA) a six-year finance plan has been prepared for the years 2006 to at least the year 2011 for those facilities currently, or to be, owned and operated by the County.

The following facilities are included in the financial planning:

(Appendix C)

'" Solid Waste Management Facilities

" County Administrative and Law Enforcement Buildings

,. Public Works Facilities

Parks and Recreation

Transportation

Only County owned and operated facilities, except for the community-based wastewater systems for rural activity centers, are included in the finance analysis. Several alternatives have been suggested to deal with the problem of providing water and wastewater service in areas outside the existing utility service area in which growth is forecast. The service area for the solid waste utility is county-wide.

The finance plan identifies reasonably reliable funding sources, and forecasts revenue and expenses to at least the year 2011. Funding varies depending on the facility. The different financing methods, public or private, could have significant implications on the cost of utility service. Potential funding sources that could be used to fund unanticipated needs and shortfalls are also discussed.

Financial Impact Overview

The financial impact for capital facility improvements have been analyzed for the six year planning period. Information on transportation can be found in the Transportation Chapter. A summary of the six year improvement costs, revenues and financing is listed in Table 10-1. The

Table displays the cost by capital facility category. The total of improvement costs and

Capital Facilities

Water and Wastewater Systems

The County owns and operates water utilities in the Belfair and Rustlewood areas. The County also operates water treatment facilities for Rustlewood and Beard's Cove. There is no expected expansion in any of the service utility areas with the exception fo the Belfair sewer. A 20 year plan has been developed for sewer expansion to serve the entire Belfair Urban Growth Area. A financial plan and rate structure has been developed to accommodate this growth. The Belfair

Sewer Finance and Rate Forecast, Facility Expansion Map, and Phasing Program Map are incorporated into this Chapter as Appendix A

Information provided in Table Vl.4-1 and the facility worksheets which follow it summarize the planned water supply and sewer system capital improvements over the next six years.

Solid Waste

Table V1.4-2-presents revenue sources and expenditure levels for Mason County solid waste services from 2006 to 2011. Further detail is provided in the facility worksheets that follow the table.

Municipal Buildings and Law Enforcement Facilities

The Facilities Steering Committee and the Criminal Justice Working Team, working with a consultant, has assessed future County building needs. A report issued jointly by the Facilities Steering

Committee and Criminal Justice Working Team in early January, 1996, has identified four capital facility projects. At this time, the Department of Facilities and Grounds proposes to fund and make necessary improvements over a number of years. Table V1.1 0-2 shows the 2006-2011 plan.

Parks and Recreation

The County has identified over the six year period large number of park and recreation improvements.

The projects include improvements to existing parks and boat launches as well as the development of new ball fields. The total cost for these improvements are expected to be approximately $13.9 million

(see Table V1.10-3).

Stormwater Management

Mason County created a stormwater utility in 2008. The initial emphasis for Stormwater management will be placed on the Belfair/Allyn area. The utility outlines future expansion to other areas of the County with the whole county being included within the boundaries fo the utility by 2013. the County also adopted the 2005 Department of Ecology Stormwater Drainage

Manual and Low Impact Development Standards which will be enforced in the Belfair and Allyn

UGAs first with the entire county being subjected to the requirements as water quality monitoring dictates. The following tables outline expected Capital projects in the stormwater utility in 2009 -

2014.

APPENDIX A

MASON COUNTY- BELFAIR SEWERING PROJECT

FINANCIAL AND RATE FORECAST .. JULY

8, 2008

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to provide a current financial forecast for the Belfair sewer project, to support the County's efforts to receive GMA approval for the project.

A financial forecast was prepared with the Wastewater Management Plan. Since completion of that document there have been significant changes to financial assumptions including additional service areas, updated capital costs, and additional secured grants.

The County has existing sewer utilities with policies in place to support fiscally and financially prudent operation of those entities. This forecast presents a rate forecast that modifies some of those policy assumptions where it may bring the rate closer to an "affordable" range.

Doing so may bring on financial risk, and so two forecast scenarios are presented here: a

"conservative" scenario and an "affordability" scenario. In the conservative scenario, the

County's current policies continue to be used in the Belfair area. In the affordability scenario, the County uses all policy options to make the rates as affordable as possible in the initial years.

Data Sources and Assumptions

The capital financing analysis uses capital costs, project timing, and capital inflation rate as projected and provided by CH2M Hill. Also provided were existing ERUs and new annual connections, projected O&M costs and estimated timing of capital spending. Each set of data was provided for four different phases including 1. Initial Connection (this is the Core

Service area evaluated in the Master Plan), 2. Old Belfair Hwy Connection, 3. New Kirk

Road Connection and 4. Southern Connection.

At the time of the forecast presented in the Master Plan, the County had secured $16 million in grants and $2.4 million in state loans (SRF). The County has since secured a total of $24 million in grants and has $3 million of state loans available.

The forecast period includes 2008 through 2025. However, actual 2007 costs are included in the summary and financing analysis in order to consider total costs and total resources for the project.

The capital costs for the Initial Connection are projected 2007 through 2010, with year 1 of operation, 2011. This includes treatment plant costs for enough capacity to serve the four identified service areas (at the projected rate of growth), as well as the infrastructure planned to serve the Initial Connection service area.

Capital costs to build infrastructure to connect customers in the Old Belfair Hwy Connection are planned for 2014 through 2016 with first year of operation targeted for 2017.

The New Kirk Road connection is projected to begin service in 2020 with capital spending in the two years preceding, and the Southern Connection in 2025 after infrastructure is built in

2024.

Customer Base

The customer base is defined in Equivalent Residential Units (ERUs), and it is projected to grow at 5% annually. The Sewer Master Plan completed in 2007 forecasted growth at about

9% annually, though, the financial projections in that plan also used the more conservative rate of 5% annually.

The customer base is defined with two types of service connections: existing and new. The analysis distinguishes between developed properties with existing permitted septic systems

(as of Jan 1 2008) and new connections since the sewer project has begun.

The following table summarizes the annual ERU projection used in the forecast.

Operations and Maintenance

Operations and Maintenance costs were provided in current dollars for the first year of operation for each service area. For rate projections, annual O&M costs are escalated at 3% annually. The rate forecast separately calculates excise taxes on projected rate revenue, which are added to these O&M costs for rate projection calculations.

Capital Facilities Charge- CFC

(conversion/connection charges)

Calculation of a connection charge for the Belfair sewering project considers total project costs, 2025 customer base, secured grants toward funding the identified capital costs and reduction of unit costs to customers paying a ULID to fund a portion of their capital costs.

Separate charges are calculated for conversions (existing development) and new development. In order to distinguish the separate charges, the connection charge for existing development is referred to as a "conversion charge," while the charge for new development continues to be referred to as a "connection charge."

The charges are calculated as three separate components of the total. One reason is so that if a developer chooses to build and finance particular infrastructure ahead of the County doing so, there is a clear dollar amount per ERU of credits that they may receive toward their connection charge, based on the type of project they are building and for how many ERU

Capital Facilities units. Another is to properly reflect the Old Belfair Hwy Connection ULID contribution and adjust their connection charge accordingly. And finally, it is done to provide an opportunity for existing development (as defined in the ERU section) to benefit from available grants toward reduction of their treatment unit cost.

The total unit cost before adjustments is about $30,000 per ERU (using the number of ERUs projected in 2025).

The ULID-funded projects (in the Old Belfair Hwy Connection service area) are then deducted from the cost total. The ERU basis is also adjusted to recognize ERUs served by the ULID-funded projects.

The number of ERUs served by the identified treatment costs through 2025 total 1 ,783.

ERUs served by the trunk and collection costs after removing the Old Belfair Hwy Connection portion total 1 ,413.

Capital Financing

As discussed in the Master Plan, utility formation requires consideration of unique cash flow constraints. An existing utility has an existing revenue stream and some level of cash reserves to support capital financing and debt repayment. In the case of a new utility, capital costs will be incurred preceding a revenue stream from a rate-paying customer base. Even use of grant funds requires approximately 60 days of financing since funds are dispersed on a reimbursement basis. The capital financing analysis developed for this rate projection uses a mix of the County's funding and financing options to complete 2007 through 2010 capital spending preceding connection of customer base.

The capital financing analysis considers use of the lowest cost funding options first and balances the total financing need with those that have a greater rate impact. The financing priority is as follows; 1. Secured grants (CTED), 2. Secured state loans (SRF), 3.

Accumulated cash reserves [from CFCs or projected Real Estate Excise Tax (REET) funds] and 4. Revenue bonds.

An exception to this priority list is that the County is planning to fund the Old Belfair Hwy

Connection trunk and collection line costs with a ULID. The County would borrow funds to finance those costs, and they would be repaid through property assessments within the service area boundary.

In order to have funds available to finance the first 60 days of grant use, a combination of

SRF and grant use is projected to fund capital costs for each of the four years of capital spending. Because SRF repayment begins the fiscal year after the first draw, debt service obligations are projected begin ahead of year one of operation and therefore require another

County resource for repayment. The County has pledged $200,000 annually of REET monies from the General Fund beginning in 2009 to help fund the project. These funds allow

Vl-78

Mason County Comprehensive Plan

August, 1998- (updated in 2006, July 31, 2007; January 15, 2008; July 29, 2008) Capital Facilities the County to make SRF payments that are due ahead of the 2011 first year of operation.

Without the REET funds, the County would not be able to utilize all lowest cost financing options first, but rather would need to issue revenue bonds and capitalize the interest for the period preceding utility revenue collection.

Revenue bonds are needed to balance the net financing need after use of all available grants, state loans and any available cash reserves. Revenue bonds not only affect rates through debt repayment obligation, but also carry a security requirement, bond coverage.

Bond coverage defines an annual minimum level of revenue the utility must collect. The coverage factor is a factor applied to the utility's revenue bond payment in each year of repayment. It requires revenues be sufficient to make the bond repayment as well as an additional percentage of that amount. For example a bond coverage factor of 1.25 requires that rate revenue (along with any other eligible revenues) be sufficient to fund annual operating and maintenance expenses plus 125% of the revenue bond payment. Coverage will be discussed further with the rate projections.

The following table summarizes planned annual financing of the capital costs for this project.

'Old Belfair Hwy Connection collection/trunk costs

The County is planning on a ULID to finance the Old Belfair Hwy Connection infrastructure costs, planned for 2014 through 2016, totaling $9,570,000 in current dollars and $15,930,949 in projected future dollars. The County would issue debt for the projected $16 million total and repayment would occur through annual assessment revenue collected from the Old

Belfair Hwy Connection properties.

Secured grant funds are used from 2007 through 2010, totaling $24 million. SRF loan proceeds are projected to be spent from 2008 through 2010. The balance of capital financing needed for the Initial Connection period is $15,312,100. This consists of a projected $11.8 million in conventional municipal revenue bonds and $3.5 million of short-term financing.

The purpose of the short-term financing is to allow the County to use CFC revenue from conversions and new connections in 2011 to reduce the rate burden from debt repayment.

Based on results of the connection charge analysis, an expected $4.1 million of CFC

Mason County Comprehensive Plan

August, 1998- (updated in 2006, July 31, 2007; January 15, 2008; July 29, 2008) Capital Facilities revenue is anticipated to be collected in 2011. Of that, $400,000 is planned to support existing annual debt service obligations, leaving $3.7 million available for project costs.

Since capital financing is completed before customers connect, it is assumed the County could secure short-term financing for what could be repaid with the net available 2011 CFC revenue. This reduces the debt repayment obligation from rates.

On July 5, 2008, the 2-year municipal bond yield was 2.75%. Assuming this interest rate and a 0.5% issuance cost, the County could realize debt reduction of $3.5 million by using the

$3.7 million of 2011 CFC revenue.

The above capital financing summary represents a rate scenario in which some level of available capital funds are used directly for debt repayment for rate relief, rather than reserved and available for cash-funding capital. The most conservative scenario does not consider capital revenues for debt repayment (with the exception of the short-term financing).

They are reserved in the Capital Fund and used to cash-fund future projects, which would reduce the need for future revenue bonds.

The result is that no additional revenue bond borrowing is required after the Initial Connection financing and $15 million of capital reserves fund the remainder of projected capital costs

(with the exception of the ULID).

Revenue

There are four types of revenue considered to meet annual cash obligations. These include revenue from rates, interest earnings on the operating fund, and use of REET funds and

CFC revenue toward debt repayment. In order to provide the greatest level of rate relief, a scenario is provided that uses 100% of REET funds and $400,000 per year of CFC revenue

(which represents about 70% of total CFC revenue initially, going to under 20% by 2025) toward annual debt repayment. The conservative alternative is that REET funds are used only for debt repayment that precedes utility operation. In the remainder of the forecast,

REET funds are reserved for cash-funding future capital. CFC revenue is also reserved for cash-funding future capital rather than supporting annual debt repayment obligations.

REET funds and CFC revenue are also considered in the coverage calculation. The

County's bond counsel has indicated that dedicated REET funds would be an eligible revenue for the coverage calculation and that the County could specifically write them in to a bond covenant as an eligible revenue source. The risk is the potential that the County will not collect sufficient REET funds to make the full $200,000 support to the utility in a given year. Similarly, due to the variable nature of revenue collection from CFCs, which are also subject to economic conditions, there is risk associated with including CFCs in the coverage calculation as eligible revenue. Typically, coverage is tested at a higher factor when including CFCs.

The two scenarios vary in coverage calculation in that the conservative scenario tests coverage at a 1.25 factor and excludes REET funds and CFCs as eligible revenues and the scenario that targets affordability includes REET funds and 75% (an element of conservatism within this scenario) of annual CFC revenue, though tests at a higher coverage factor of 1.50

The higher rate revenue need of the total cash and total coverage obligations becomes the basis for setting rates. Coverage is the driving factor in most years before the second

Because this amount varies annually and typically trends down with ERU growth, operating reserves are managed to set a single rate for periods within the forecast.

Sewer Connection Zone Characterization

Initial Connection Zone:

Capital Facilities

The area consists of scattered residential and the "core" commerical corridor for the Belfair community. A majority of the commercial development is underutilized because of little organized infrastructure, especially sewers. The area is the most problematic for the contribution of pollutants to

Hood Canal. The County has secured funds to construct a collection system and a Membrane

BioReactor (MBR) treatment facility to serve the area along State Route# 3 which transverses the length of Belfair. Following the construction and commissioning of the NBR treatment plant all properties within 500 feet of the initial sewers lines will be required to connect to the Belfair sewer system. All on-site expenses incurred for connection will be borne by the property owner. Once connection occurs a monthly utility rate will be collected from each property.

Old Belfair Highway Connection:

The area is a larger urban density residential community north of the Belfair "core" commercial corridor. Many of the owner occupied structures are pre-and early posts World War II stock. The structures use on-site systems as their method of sewage disposal. Because of older on-site systems, denser development patterns and high ground water tables the area likely contributing nitrates and fecal contamination to the canal. The area is low-to moderate income and financing large sewer improvements will be difficult without Federal and state assistance. The county will relay on grants and loans and County supported Utility Local Improvement Districts (ULID) to develop sewers in the area.

Newkirk Road Connection Zone:

The area is divided into two sectors. The area to the north is vacant, larger parcels held by four developers. It is planned and zoned for commercial and industrial development. The area to the south is comprised of vacant properties still in large parcels with a single owner. The land is planned and zoned for higher destiny residential development. There is current demand for the development of the northern area. The development of the sewer collection system to serve the northern area will occur as the MBR plant is developed at developer expense. The southern area will remain in large tracts until near the end of the UGA planning period.

Southern Connection:

The area is the most difficult to develop because of environmental constraints. There is some scattered low-density residential development but most of the land remains in large undeveloped tracts. Portions of the area will be impacted by the development of the Belfair by-pass. The properties will remain vacant until the later years of the planning period.
