D) Action to adopt a resolution approving of and authorize the Mayor to sign a 3-party Developer Agreement by and between State of Nevada Department of Transportation, North Carson Crossing, LLC and Carson City for removal of a portion of existing freeway sound wall along the North Carson Crossing commercial development adjacent to the Home Depot site. (Jeff Sharp)

Staff Summary: The Developer would like to remove a portion of the existing freeway sound wall in order to improve visibility to his North Carson Crossing commercial site. The hope is that the increased visibility will result in increased retail sales which will benefit the Developer, as well as the City through increased sales tax revenues. NDOT and the Developer have conducted noise studies, and have concluded that with minor modifications to the existing Home Depot wall, the freeway sound wall can be removed with little or no impact to surrounding residences. With this Agreement, the City agrees to backstop the Developer with regards to perpetual maintenance of the Home Depot sound wall. Should the Developer fail to maintain the wall, the City would perform the maintenance and then seek reimbursement from the Developer. All costs for the proposed freeway wall removal as well as modifications to the Home Depot wall will be borne by the Developer.

18. City Manager

A) Action to adopt on second reading, Bill No. 125, an ordinance amending Carson City Municipal Code Title 2 Administration and Personnel, Chapter 2.14 Carson City Audit Committee, Section 2.14.030 Composition by removing one of the Board of Supervisors from the committee, removing the Finance Director from the committee, increasing the number of Public-At-Large Members from two to four and removing the requirement that members must possess certain qualifications, Section 2.14.040 Meetings of the Carson City Audit Committee by removing the language regarding monthly meetings and other matters properly related thereto. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: At the August 20, 2009 Board of Supervisors meeting there was discussion regarding the composition of the Audit Committee. The Board directed staff to bring back an ordinance that would change the number of Board members from two to one, remove the Finance Director from the committee and create four public-at-large positions. This ordinance accomplishes the direction requested by the Board and also removes the requirement that an applicant must possess certain qualifications, but encourages applicants to possess them and allows the Board to select members who meet the recommended qualifications. In addition, old language was deleted from municipal code regarding monthly meetings.

B) Action to introduce on first reading, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code, Title 7, Animals, by adding Chapter 7.01, Bear Proof Collection Bins, Containers, and Structures, and adding Section 7.01.010, Definitions, Section 7.01.020 Statement of Intent, Section 7.01.030 Applicability, Section 7.01.040, Collection Bin, Container and Structure Maintenance, Section 7.01.0500, Authority to Issue Citations, Section 7.01.060, Violation and Penalty, Section 7.01.070, Severability and other matters properly related thereto. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: One of the major reasons bears are drawn into the community is that they are searching for food and unattended garbage cans are a prime source. The other problem is that some people intentionally leave food for the bears. The concern with this is that it does draw the bears into more contact with humans and at some point there could be a devastating encounter. This proposed ordinance will put some controls on feeding bears and consequences of leaving cans out in such a manner that bears are attracted.

C) Action to appoint one member to the Planning Commission for a term ending June 2010. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: Carson City Municipal Code Chapter 18.02.010 and NRS 278.030 provide for a Planning Commission to be composed of not more than seven members who shall be appointed by the Board of Supervisors. There is one vacancy for a term that will expire June 2010. There are three applicants.
