The law also changed to require a court to order a person to install an ignition interlock driving device if he was found to have a concentration of alcohol of 0.18 or greater in his blood or breath at the time of the arrest. This ordinance will allow the municipal/justice courts to impose this condition during sentencing.

Action to terminate Contract No. 0708-105 Construction Manager as agent for the Carson City Indoor Recreation Center/Multi-Purpose Gym with Metcalf Builders, Inc., contract for professional services. (Roger Moellendorf)       Late Material

Staff Summary: On March 6, 2008, the Board of Supervisors approved the above mentioned contract for a not to exceed amount of $991,764.00 to be funded from the Park Improvement/New Gymnasium Account. Because of the current decline in sales tax revenues funding Quality of Life Capital projects, coupled with the current financial situation in the City's General Fund budget that would prohibit even a minor subsidy for the operations of this facility, staff recommends that after receiving the final design of the project from Valentiner Crane Architects that the project be suspended until such time the City's financial situation and sales tax revenues improve. As such, staff recommends that Contract No. 0708-105, for the services of a Construction Manager as agent for the project, be terminated. The current balance of the contract is $957,292.71.

19. Public Works - Planning and Zoning

Action to recommend for approval the Carson City 2009-10 Annual Action Plan and 2009-2013 Consolidated Plan to implement Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) programs associated with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program and to forward the plan to HUD. (Lee Plemel)

Staff Summary: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is anticipated to award Carson City approximately $436,000 in Community Development Block Grant Funds for the FY09 annual cycle. Fifteen percent (15%), or $65,400, will be available for public services activities. Sixty-five percent (65%), or $283,400, will be available for public facilities and improvements.

A) Discussion and action to adopt rules and regulations of the Redevelopment Authority. (Joe McCarthy)

Staff Summary: On February 19, 2009, the Board of Supervisors requested that staff present for its consideration a draft of proposed redevelopment rules and regulations for its consideration.

B) Action to recommend to the Board of Supervisors approval of the Second Amended and Restated Commitment Agreement for Continuing Business Operations between Carson City and Richard Campagni. (Joe McCarthy)

Staff Summary: The Redevelopment Plan for Project Area No. 2 provides for public-private partnerships to retain and expand Carson City=s auto sales sector. On March 17, 2005, the Board of Supervisors adopted Resolution No. RAR-2, a resolution to allow the Redevelopment Authority/Board of Supervisors to consider, on an individual basis, projects/incentive packages that are clearly designed to secure and stimulate auto sales investment along South Carson Street. In July of 2005, Mr. Campagni and the City negotiated a Commitment Agreement that pledged his dealerships to remain in Carson City and for him to build a new Toyota Store on South Carson Street. The requirement to use prevailing wage on redevelopment projects in which incentives were provided in excess of $100,000 was not specified in the Commitment Agreement. This Second Amended Agreement requires compliance with the prevailing wage statutes and amends the repayment provision of the City financial assistance to reduce the principal amount from $3,600,000 to $3,057,000.

C) Action to approve and recommend to the Board of Supervisors their consent to a $53,520 incentive request by DSE, #4, LLC to redevelop the property at 503 N. Nevada Street, with the Redevelopment Authority finding that this project meets the incentive program criteria and the necessary findings set forth in NRS 279.486, that the project benefits the current redevelopment plan area, that the project has no other reasonable means of financing available, that the incentive will be paid on a reimbursement basis for money expended by the applicant on the project, that other financing is available to pay for the remaining costs of the project and that the incentive is subject to the applicant fulfilling City requirements. (Joe McCarthy)

Staff Summary: On April 6, 2009, the Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee (RACC) recommended approval of incentive funding for the complete renovation of a former boarding house situated at the northeast corner of Spear and Nevada Streets. This redevelopment project rehabilitates an abandoned, eyesore situated in the center of our historic downtown that was formerly substandard housing. The work includes interior demolition and renovation, facade and tenant improvements, landscaping, site work, handicap access and compliance with historic district guidelines. RACC reviewed the application and supporting material provided to measure the project's benefit to the redevelopment area as it relates to the incentive program=s criteria: aesthetics, curing of blight, job creation, business retention, addition of tax revenues and enhancement of the community's vision. RACC also determined that no other reasonable means of financing certain improvements associated with the project was available. Staff reviewed the project and DSE, #4, LLC's financials, tax returns and other confidential material to confirm the economic viability of the project and the appropriateness of redevelopment funding.

D) Action to recommend to the Board of Supervisors the approval of the expenditure of $10,750 from the Revolving Fund for the Redevelopment Agency to support the Wild West Tour, Rendezvous and Taste of Downtown, as an expense incidental to the carrying out of the redevelopment plan which has been adopted by the Carson City Board of Supervisors and based upon the findings that there is a causal connection between this redevelopment effort and the need for the expenses, the expenses are needed to ensure the success of the redevelopment plan and that the amount of the expenses to be given are minor in comparison to the money required for the overall redevelopment plan. (Joe McCarthy)

Staff Summary: This is a request to expend $10,750 from the Revolving Fund for the Redevelopment Agency to support the Wilde West Tour ($1,500), Rendezvous ($4,250) and Taste of Downtown ($5,000), unique special events occurring in this fiscal year. NRS 279.628 permits the expenditure of money from the redevelopment revolving fund for the purpose of any expenses necessary or incidental to the carrying out of the redevelopment plan adopted by the Carson City Board of Supervisors. Prior to approving the expenditure, the Board of Supervisors must make the findings that there is a causal connection between this redevelopment effort and the need for the expenses, the expenses are needed to ensure the success of the redevelopment plan and that the amount of the expenses to be given are minor in comparison to the money required for the overall redevelopment plan. The action requested of the Redevelopment Authority is to recommend to the Board of Supervisors the approval of this expenditure.

The Redevelopment Plan adopted by the Carson City Board of Supervisors provides that a purpose of the Plan is to "encourage and assist in providing 'people oriented areas' in the Redevelopment Project Area for daytime and evening special events and promotional activities," and "establish the highest level of recreational opportunity for residents and visitors of all age levels." Based upon previous years, these long-standing events attract thousands to our Downtown during times that are otherwise quiet and inactive. The increased foot traffic generated within this 'people oriented area' has a direct impact on the success of many small businesses and cultural facilities throughout the area. Thus, there is a casual connection between this redevelopment effort and the need for the expenses. Additionally, these expenses are needed to ensure the success of the redevelopment plan, as this funding specifically helps to pay for the production of the events. Finally, this funding is incidental to overall cost of implementing the redevelopment plan. The amount requested, $10,750 is essential to ensure this programming excellence, but is minor in comparison to the funding required to execute all the objectives of the redevelopment plan.

25. Action to Adjourn as the Redevelopment Authority

29. Finance

A) Presentation of the proposed 2009/2010 Fiscal Year budget for Carson City which includes the general fund, enterprise funds and all other funds. (Nick Providenti & Larry Werner)

        Section 1            Section 2        Section 3

Staff Summary: Staff has prepared a balanced budget in light of the severe financial hardships that are facing the city. The goal for this and future years is to balance expenditures to revenues with minimal reliance on ending fund balances including the City's stabilization fund through reduction in programs, containment of staffing and implementing efficiencies where identifies. Staff will present the assumptions made during the process and the outlook for the future.

B) Action to give direction to staff to begin the process of implementing the fee increases as outlined in the FY 2010 Budget memo - specifically: General Fund: 1) To increase the business license (franchise) fee charged to NV Energy from 3.5% to 4.5%; 2) To increase the business license (franchise) fee charged to Southwest Gas from 4.5% to 5%; 3) To increase the Right of Way toll charged to Carson City Water and Sewer Utility customers from 1% of the bill to 3% of the bill. Enterprise Funds: 1) To increase the rates charged to Carson City Sewer Utility customers by 5%; 2) To increase the rates charged to Carson City Water Utility customers by 5%; 3) To increase the rates charged to Carson City Storm Drainage customers by 10%.

C) Presentation and possible action to approve a Supplemental Request to the FY 2010 General Fund Base Budget - increasing Justices of the Peace (JOP) salaries by a 5% equity adjustment. (Nick Providenti & Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: Staff has prepared a balanced base budget with the assumptions outlined in the Budget memo. A 3% COLA was included in the budget for the JOP's, but the 5% equity adjustment was not. Court staff are requesting the Board of Supervisors consider increasing the JOP's salaries based on a January 2008 survey of salaries of other JOP's of neighboring counties. This will increase the FY 2010 budget by approximately $11,800.

D) Presentation and possible action to approve a Supplemental Request to the FY 2010 General Fund Base Budget - increasing the ranges of the Juvenile Probation and Juvenile Detention departments. (Nick Providenti & Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: Carson City Juvenile Probation and Detention salaries were overlooked in 2006 when the First Judicial District Court and the Justice and Municipal Courts consolidated administration and agreed to share staff resources. At that time, Human Resources performed a comprehensive salary study of all positions working for the courts. By inadvertence, Juvenile Probation and Detention positions were omitted from the salary study. Juvenile Probation and Detention salaries have not been formally reviewed for several years. Court staff has prepared a comparison chart of positions and salaries and are requesting increases in the ranges for the Juvenile Probation and Juvenile Detention salaries. This will increase the FY 2010 budget by approximately $36,775 and a Atop to top@ analysis indicates the total cost of increasing the ranges will be approximately $225,146.

E) Action to approve a 3% cost of living increase for unclassified personnel and for the positions of Public Guardian, Chief of Alternative Sentencing, Justice of the Peace (2) and City Manager, effective July 1, 2009. (Nick Providenti & Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: The City Manager is recommending that unclassified employees receive a 3% cost of living adjustment effective July 1, 2009. All other employees covered by labor agreements will receive a cost of living adjustment. This amount was included in the FY 2010 budget. It is also important to note that because of PERS increases, all non public safety employees pay will be reduced by .5% and all public safety employees pay will be reduced by 1.75% starting on July 17, 2009.

F) Discussion and possible action to set the annual salary of the Board of Supervisors as provided for in NRS 245.043, whereby the Board may by a vote of at least a majority of all the members of the Board.  (Nick Providenti & Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: The Mayor and Board of Supervisors are included in NRS 245.043. This statute provides that the Board must take action to increase their salary.

30. Public Works

Action to accept the 2008/09-2012/13 Capital Improvement Program. (Andy Burnham)

            Section 1        Section 2

Staff Summary: This is the annual update of the City Capital Improvement Program which accompanies the City=s annual budget. The significant issue this year is that the General Fund capital requests have not been budgeted because of reduced revenues to the city. The Board will have to decide in the future whether to fund any projects from the general fund on a case by case basis until revenues improve.

31. Action to Adjourn

Following a recess or the adjournment of the meeting, the Carson City Board of Supervisors will meet to receive information from an attorney employed or retained by the city regarding potential and/or existing litigation involving matters over which the public body has supervision, control, jurisdiction or advisory power and to deliberate toward decisions on the matters.
