A) Discussion and possible action to approve a Settlement Agreement between Andersen Family Associates, Hugh Ricci, P.E., State Engineer, in the matter of permit 68984, Division of Conservation and Natural Resources, State of Nevada, and Carson City, real party in interest, which establishes Andersen Family Associates percentage share of Ash Canyon Creek at 24% and Carson City's percentage share of ownership at 5.8762%. 

Staff Summary: On June 23, 2003, Andersen Family Associates filed a Petition for Judicial Review alleging that the State Engineer failed to correctly ascertain the true and correct percent of ownership Carson City has to Ash Canyon Creek. Specifically, Andersen Family Associates alleges that the State Engineer erroneously granted 6.2757% of water rights when it should have only been 2.7% and that this act has affected all water users of Ash Canyon Creek. The State Engineer has reviewed the percentages and believes that it would be in the parties best interests to settle this matter by slightly increasing Andersen Family Associates ownership to 24% and decreasing Carson City=s ownership to 5.8762%.

B) Discussion and possible action to approve the Settlement Agreement between Carson City Nugget, Inc., Carson Nugget, Inc. and Carson City Regarding Abandonment of Streets. 

Staff Summary: The City sought judicial review of its decision to charge for the abandonment of streets in that section of the City that encompassed the federal townsite. Capital City Entertainment joined in the suit seeking reimbursement. Following its decision to seek reimbursement, two other owners of property who had paid for the abandonment of streets also sought relief, one of which is the Carson City Nugget. The District Court held that the City should not have charged for the abandonments. The City appealed the decision to the Nevada Supreme Court, which upheld the District Court decision, but stated that there were some defenses to repayment of the purchase price of the streets. The City pursued some of the defenses in the Capital City Entertainment case and again lost in District Court. The case was appealed to the Nevada Supreme Court and was settled in the settlement program. This is the last abandonment case to be settled.
