Staff Summary: Due to a clerical error, the property located at 7492 Mackinly Ct, owned by Robert and Robina Walter, did not receive the necessary economic obsolescence/reduction in value to their 2015/16 valuation. This reduction insures that the taxable value remains under the market value per NRS 361.768.

Staff Summary: The City's water rights in Washoe Valley associated with Well #12 are currently unused and cannot be moved to another site where they could be utilized by Carson City. As such, the water rights are subject to forfeiture for non-use. The Board is being asked to authorize the appraisal and sale of these water rights. The official sale will require adopting a resolution. 

19.B For Possible Action: To approve the reclassification of a GIS Specialist (CCEA T1) position to an Asset Manager - Public Works (Unclassified S2) position. (Darren Schulz, dschulz@carson.org)

Staff Summary: The GIS Specialist position is currently vacant.

Effective July 1, 2016, the Geographic Information System services provided to the City will move forward in a new direction. The current amount budgeted for this position is within the range of the Asset Manager - Public Works; however, the range of the Asset Manager - Public Works is approximately $30,000 higher, so over time there will be an increase in salary.

20. Purchasing and Contracts

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 for the purpose of transporting donated items such as furniture and equipment, and such purpose provides a substantial benefit to the inhabitants of Carson City. 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.

21. Finance 

21.A For Possible Action: To authorize staff to submit an application to the State of Nevada Office of the Attorney General for the 2016 Violence Against Women Act grant program in the amount of $40,000. (Janice Keillor, jkeillor@carson.org)

Staff Summary: The Office of the Attorney General is soliciting for grant applications for the Services, Training, Officers, Prosecutors (STOP) grant program for 2016-17, with applications due by April 15, 2016. The STOP program supports communities in their efforts to develop and strengthen effective victim services, law enforcement and prosecution strategies to combat domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. Staff would like to apply for funds to expand the Sexual Assault Exam Program Support project funded in 2015. There is a 25% match requirement, which Carson City will meet through the current funding of the sexual assault exam room Medical Director, Carson Tahoe Hospital's donation of the exam room, and exam room equipment provided by Advocates to End Domestic Violence. 

21.B For Possible Action: To recommend to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approval of the Carson City 2016-17 Annual Action Plan to implement programs associated with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and to forward the plan to HUD. (Janice Keillor, jkeillor@carson.org)

Staff Summary: The Annual Action Plan establishes the distribution of CDBG funds between public services activities, public facilities and improvements, and planning, research, reports and administrative functions in accordance with HUD regulations.

(Janice Keillor, jkeillor@carson.org)

Staff Summary: Due to recent CDBG funding recommendations and necessary revisions to the City's Citizen Participation Plan, Carson City is required to amend its Consolidated Plan that was approved in 2014. The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) considers a change in funding allocation priorities to an approved Consolidated Plan to be a substantial amendment, which requires grant recipients to undertake certain steps in order to amend a plan. These steps include publishing a notice in the paper regarding the amendment, holding a public hearing, and providing a 30-day comment period to ensure that citizens have an opportunity to participate in the process. The 30-day comment period will be open from April 1-30.
