The property is located in the southwest corner of Mills Park, 844 North Saliman Road, APN No. 002-181-01. The lease was approved by the Carson City Parks and Recreation Commission during their December 1, 2015 meeting.

18. Public Works

18.A For Possible Action: To approve the donation of a Carson City Public Works van to the Carson City Senior Center (Darren Schulz, dschulz@carson.org)

Staff Summary: Carson City Public Works wishes to donate a 1992 F-350 box van, Unit# 4206, VIN #1FDKE37H8NHA02607 from the Public Works Storm Water Division to the Carson City Senior Center. The Public Works Storm Water Division removed this unit from services a few years ago. Before sending it to auction, the van was evaluated for possible repurposing. Once it had been determined it could no longer serve Public Works, the Senior Center expressed a desire to obtain it. This donation would aid the Senior Center by providing the capability of moving donated items such as furniture and equipment. Public Works has no plans to replace this unit as it no longer provides value to our operation. Additionally, the Moss Adams audit report recommended this be one of the units we surplus. 

18.B For Possible Action: To approve an agreement between Carson City, Nevada and Lopiccolo Investments, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company, for a permanent easement necessary for construction of improvements associated with the Downtown Improvement Project, Project Number 031407.

18.C For Possible Action: To provide direction to the Utility Financial Oversight Committee to examine Resolution 2013-R-45A, which formally established the Committee and make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for possible modification or amendments. The recommendations should include a justification of why a change is needed and why existing practices or controls are not satisfactory. (David Bruketta, dbruketta@carson.org)

Staff Summary: The Utility Financial Oversight Committee was established in 2013 by Resolution Number 2013-R-45A, as an oversight committee to monitor compliance with utility financial policies. From time to time, at the direction of the Board of Supervisors, it may be necessary to review the provisions of a resolution. In this instance, being a relatively new committee, it may be appropriate to consider any provision of the resolution at the next meeting of the Committee and provide to the Board of Supervisors recommendations relating to such considerations.

19. Purchasing and Contracts

19.A For Possible Action: To approve Contract No. 1516-119 for the repair and rehabilitation of centrifuge #1 at the Water Resource Recovery Facility to Andritz Separation, Inc.

Staff Summary: Solids from the sewage treatment process are broken down and stabilized through a digestion process. After this process, the majority of the water is removed by using polymer and high speed centrifuges. The output from this process, called bio solids, are then sent to the landfill. The Water Resource Recovery Facility has two centrifuges that are over 20 years old. Centrifuge #2 was rehabilitated several years ago. Centrifuge #1 is overdue for a rehabilitation. This contract is to provide the necessary repairs and rehabilitation of the existing centrifuge #1 and provides upgrades to the controls and power system. The repairs will be performed by the centrifuge manufacturer Andritz Separation, Inc. This contract was sole sourced in order to maintain the warranty and integrity of the centrifuge.

20. Finance

The priority area selected to focus on is "partnering with, or enhancing integration of family planning with primary care services." This project must demonstrate "evidence of the ability to provide comprehensive primary care services onsite or demonstration of formal linkages with comprehensive primary care services."

Staff Summary: The Lompa Ranch Specific Plan (LR-SPA) was created as a part of the Carson City Master Plan in 2006 and includes the subject properties plus additional properties on the south side of 5th Street.
