5-3. Purchasing and Contracts

Action to determine that Contract No. 0708-150 is a contract for the services of a professional engineer; that the selection was made on the basis of the competence and qualifications of the engineer for the type of services to be performed and not on the basis of competitive fees; and therefore not suitable for public bidding pursuant to NRS 625.530; and to approve Contract No. 0708-150 with Resource Concepts through December 31, 2009 for a not to exceed cost of $89,500 to be funded from the Morgan Mill Road Riverbank 275-5017-452-7801 as provided in FY 2007/2008.

Staff Summary: On March 15, 2007, the Board of Supervisors incorporated into the adopted United Pathways Master Plan the Carson River Aquatic Trail Plan. This on-river trail planning document was developed by Resource Concepts, Inc. Since that time, the Parks and Recreation Department has been applying for and receiving grants to plan and fund improvements at the Morgan Mill Road River Access Area. To implement these planned improvements, the Parks and Recreation Department and Public Works Department staff consulted Carson City's consultant list for professional services to select Resource Concepts to design this project. As a result of this selection, City staff has negotiated a project scope of work with Resource Concepts to develop construction documents and specifications, assist with environmental testing and permitting, bidding, and construction administration.

5-4. Fire

Staff Summary: The State of Nevada has identified an interoperable communications system as a priority to be funded by the Homeland Security Grant Program. This Cooperative Agreement allows the State of Nevada to retain the grant money that typically must be paid to the counties in order to develop the interoperable communications system. All seventeen counties in the State of Nevada are being asked to enter into the Cooperative Agreement.

(End of Consent Agenda)

Ordinances, Resolutions, and Other Items

6. Fire

A) Action to adopt on second reading, Bill No.116, an ordinance deleting Carson City Municipal Code Chapter 8.06 Fire Alarm Device Regulations and other matters properly related thereto.

Staff Summary: This section of the Municipal Code was originally adopted to allow the fire department to collect fees for the purpose of monitoring fire alarm systems and licensing companies that install alarm systems. Since the adoption of the ordinance state law has been changed to license alarm companies through a state-wide licensing process handled through the Nevada State Fire Marshal's Office. Fire alarms are no longer monitored through the Fire Department but by alarm companies. These changes make this section of Municipal Code obsolete.

B) Action to adopt a resolution adopting and approving an interlocal agreement between Carson City, a political subdivision of the State of Nevada, and Western Nevada College which is a part of the Nevada system of higher education, an agency of the State of Nevada, for the use of an emergency shelter and other matters properly related thereto. 

Staff Summary: During community wide disasters, or other emergency events, it is often necessary to activate emergency shelter locations for citizens to have a safe haven from the event. The emergency operations plan has designated shelters within the community, some of those shelters are not owned by the city and must be shared with agencies such as Western Nevada College. This contract will allow for that shared use.

C) Action to adopt a resolution adopting and approving an interlocal agreement between Carson City, a political subdivision of the State of Nevada and the Carson City School District, for the use of emergency shelters and other matters properly related thereto.

7. Office of Business Development

A) Discussion and action to approve a $50,000 development finance consultant contract to engage Jeremy Aguero, a principal with Applied Analysis, to complete a feasibility study, jointly owned by the Carson Nugget and the City, to facilitate public-private partnerships as they relate to current and future market demand within the Redevelopment Area of Downtown Carson City.

Staff Summary: As part of the recent settlement agreement between the Carson City Nugget, Inc. and Carson City regarding abandonment of streets, the City must present for approval within 30 days of the approved settlement agreement a contract to complete a feasibility study of Downtown Carson City. Mr. Aguero's highly respected, Nevada-based firm is experienced in economic impact analyses, socio-economic estimates and projections, mixed-use development absorption analysis and other services related to urban economics. These skills are directly related to ensuring that a well-designed, fiscally prudent redevelopment implementation strategy results in a possible complex containing casino/ hotel/conference center/mixed-use parking garage that will anchor future civic, residential, retail, entertainment and food and beverage venue-type development throughout Downtown Carson City.

8. Development Services - Building Division

Action to adopt on second reading, Bill No. 117, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code Title 14, Fire, Section 14.02.115, Section 903 B Fire Sprinklers, to revise the definition of total floor area and Section 14.02.045, Section 105.7 B Required Construction Permits and Title 15, Buildings and Construction , Section 15.05.020, Adoption and Administration of Building and Construction Codes, to revise the manner in which fees for plan reviews and permits are determined and to require approved property corners to be in place at time of foundation inspection and other matters properly related thereto.

Staff Summary: The proposed changes to the current building and fire plan review/permit fee schedules will provide a less cumbersome, less arbitrary and more easily understood process for calculating permit fees. The proposed fee schedule and methodology coincides with what is proposed by the International Code Council for obtaining permit fees and will be a more efficient use of staff time.

9. Public Works

Action to introduce, on first reading, an ordinance Amending Title 12, Water, Sewerage and Drainage, Chapter 12.03, Sewer Connection Charges and Use Rates, Section 12.03.020, Schedule of Rates, by decreasing the commercial laundry user charge per thousand gallons by 20 percent effective July 1, 2008, and other matters properly related thereto.

Staff Summary: The proposed decrease of the Commercial Laundry user charge per thousand gallons reflected in Chapter 12.03 is an adjustment for the significant amount of water used that is lost to evaporation and does not impact the sewer system.

The remaining twenty percent (20%) is allocated to planning, research, reports and administrative functions. A community-based application review workgroup oversaw the application review process and ranked the applications.
