Staff Summary: The City Charter provides that the City may borrow money to acquire, improve, equip, operate and maintain a sewer project and for such purpose may issue bonds or other securities, and the Board has determined and declared that the Project is a municipal purpose within the meaning of said Charter provisions.

B) Action to adopt, on second reading, Bill No. 108, an ordinance of the Board of Supervisors of Carson City, Nevada providing for the issuance of general obligation (limited tax) water improvement bonds (additionally secured by pledged revenues), Series 2010A (taxable direct pay Build America Bonds), and general obligation (limited tax) water improvement and refunding bonds (additionally secured by pledged revenues), Series 2010B (tax-exempt); providing the form, terms and conditions thereof and covenants relating to the payment of said bonds; and providing other matters relating thereto. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: The City Charter provides that the City may borrow money to acquire, improve, equip, operate and maintain a water project and for such purpose may issue bonds or other securities, and the Board has determined and declared that the Project is a municipal purpose within the meaning of said Charter provisions.

C) Action to determine a program for the provision of Workers' Compensation Insurance for Carson City for FY 10-11. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: Staff is recommending that Carson City leave the Nevada Public Agency Compensation Trust (PACT), which is a guaranteed cost premium program. The estimated cost for PACT first dollar coverage is $1,594,733 for FY 2011. We believe we can provide better service to our workers and limit our worker's compensation total costs by implementing a self insured program at a total estimated cost including estimated claim costs, excess insurance premiums and other administrative charges of $706,809. The contracts for policies required for a self insurance program for Workers' Compensation Insurance would include an excess liability insurance policy with Midwest Casualty Insurance Company for a total premium of $77,043 and a Third Party Administrator services contract with Cannon Cochran Management Services, Inc. (CCMSI) for a total cost of $33,750. The self insurance program would result in a savings of almost $900,000 for FY 2011. We are anticipating using this savings to increase our contingency reserve in the Worker's Compensation Fund to an estimated $3.5 million at the end of FY 2011.

D) Action to determine providers for certain insurance coverage for Carson City for FY 10-11, including, property insurance, auto physical damage and excess liability coverage insurance and government crime insurance. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: Staff is recommending that Carson City leave the Nevada Public Agency Insurance Pool (NPAIP) starting on July 1, 2010. Staff recommends the package of insurance coverage, with a grand total premium of $627,844, provided by the following for FY 10-11: Affiliated FM for property insurance at a total premium of $267,702; Travelers Insurance Company for auto physical damage and excess liability coverage at a total premium of $350,397; Great American for government crime insurance at a total premium of $9,745.

Alternatively, the NPAIP quoted Carson City $626,202.98 in premiums for FY 2011, but we believe when you compare deductible amounts and service received from the NPAIP and their affiliates, that the City would be better served leaving the NPAIP and contracting with the recommended entities for the above outlined insurance coverages. The total premiums for FY 09-10 were $584,385 so the total increase in premium cost would be 7.4%.

E) Action to adopt a resolution to augment and amend the Carson City FY 2009-10 Budget in the amount of $17,425,418. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: The augmentation and revision is primarily due to carryover of program costs from the prior years' budget, board action over the past few months, federal and local grants and unanticipated sources of revenue.

F) Action to adopt a resolution for temporary interfund loans from the General Fund and Quality of Life Fund to the Grant Fund in the amount of $500,000 and $1,000,000, respectively. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: The Grant Fund was established to account for state, local and federal grants. Almost all of Carson City's grants are funded on a reimbursement basis, program costs must be paid for with City funds before reimbursement can be requested from the granting agency. The loan will be used to cover the temporary cash shortage in the Grant Fund due to the timing difference from when costs are incurred and reimbursements are received.
