9-1. Health and Human Services

A) Action to adopt a resolution approving an Interlocal Agreement with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services in the amount of $113,437.57 to improve immunization coverage among those 0 to 18 years of age and to reduce hepatitis B disease among children and adults. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: This Interlocal Agreement will be used to improve vaccination rates, provide for site visits and vaccination coverage assessments in Carson City, Douglas, and Lyon Counties. This Interlocal Agreement is from the State Health Division's Immunization Program.

B) Action to adopt a resolution approving an Interlocal Agreement with the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services in the amount of $66,401.83 to improve immunization coverage among preschool children enrolled in licensed childcare facilities in Carson City, Lyon and Douglas Counties. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: This Interlocal Agreement will be used to conduct surveys in preschool children enrolled in licensed childcare facilities in Carson City, Lyon, and Douglas County.

C) Action to approve continued work on the competitive grant application for Family Planning Services in Carson City. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: This federal grant is used to provide women and men family planning, and related services, within the Carson City community. For the last 2 years the Health department has received funding from the Office of Population Affairs for the purpose of operating our family planning services. This funding is expected to expire on June 30, 2011. In order to be considered for continued funding after this date, CCHHS must apply for the new 5-year funding cycle.

9-2. Public Works

A) Action to approve and authorize the Mayor to sign a Non-Exclusive Road Easement and Right-Of-Way by and between the State of Nevada, acting through the Nevada Division of State Lands, on behalf of the Division of Building and Grounds, and Carson City, whereby an easement is granted to Carson City for a connector road, referred to as Tahoe Golf Club Drive. (Jeff Sharp)

Staff Summary: Several years ago, a developer was given permission by the State of Nevada Division of State Lands to construct Tahoe Golf Club Drive on State of Nevada property in order to accommodate access from Highway 50 West to a residential golf course community located in Douglas County, south of Old Clear Creek Road, on the condition that Carson City would permit the construction and accept the roadway easement, and that Douglas County would accept maintenance responsibility for the roadway. The majority of the connector roadway is located within the County of Carson City. In April of 2006, Carson City entered into an Interlocal Agreement with Douglas County, whereby Douglas County agreed to maintain the connector roadway, including snow removal, at no cost to Carson City, between the limits of Douglas County and U.S. Highway 50 right of way, upon completion of the roadway by the Developer. Acceptance of this easement and right of way by Carson City will result in Tahoe Golf Club Drive becoming a City roadway, maintained by Douglas County per the previously approved agreements.

B) Action to accept a Right-Of-Way Grant, serial number NVN 087468, from the United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management, authorizing the City to construct, operate and maintain a sedimentation basin on public lands located at the northeast corner of the intersection of South Edmonds Drive and Valley View Drive. (Jeff Sharp)

Staff Summary: Public Works staff recently made application to BLM for this 230' long by 145' wide right of way adjacent to Valley View Drive and South Edmonds Drive in order to allow future construction of a storm water sedimentation basin. This area receives abundant storm water runoff from Prison Hill during heavy rainfall events. The runoff carries with it a substantial amount of sediment and debris that tends to clog downstream storm water conveyance facilities, and makes a mess on the area roadways. Once constructed, the sedimentation basin will be useful to catch the sediment and debris.

C) Action to approve and authorize the Mayor to sign a Non-Exclusive Bridge Easement and Right-Of-Way between Nevada Division of State Lands and Carson City, whereby the Division of State Lands will grant the City an easement across the Carson River to facilitate access and maintenance of the Deer Run Road Bridge, formerly known as Brunswick Bridge. (Jeff Sharp)

Staff Summary: On December 27, 2007, the State of Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) relinquished ownership of the Deer Run Road Bridge, formerly Brunswick Bridge, to Carson City. Since the Division of State Lands hold title to the bed and banks of the Carson River, an easement from State Lands is required to allow the City to access and maintain the bridge.

9-3. District Attorney

Action to approve submitting an application, in the amount of $40,000, to the State of Nevada Attorney General's Office for the STOP Violence Against Women Grant. This funding will pay the salary for a Victim/Witness Coordinator. (Randy Munn)

Staff Summary: The District Attorney's Office was awarded funding in early October 2010, to hire an additional Victim/Witness Coordinator. Receipt of this grant will fund that Victim/Witness Coordinator position for 2011.

9-4. City Manager

A) Action to ratify the approval of bills and other requests for payments by the City Manager for the period of September 6, 2010 thru October 11, 2010. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: All bills or other requests for payment verified per CCMC Section 2.29.010 shall be presented by the controller, together with the register book of demands and warrants to the city manager who shall audit the same, and if found authorized, correct and legal, shall signify by his signature, as agent for the board, upon the register book of demands and warrants those demands which are approved or disapproved by him. Upon approval, the warrants, as prepared aforesaid, shall issue. The City Manager shall then cause the register book of bills and other requests for payment and warrants to be presented at least once a month to the board of supervisors, who shall, by motion entered into its minutes, ratify the action taken on the bills or other requests for payment.

B) Review of the quarterly summary for all active grants made to Carson City as well as a listing of all pending grants. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: During the second meeting of the month following the end of the fiscal quarter, a summary of all active grants made to Carson City as well as a listing of all pending grants will be given to the Board of Supervisors.

9-5. Finance

A) Action to accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury through October 12, 2010 per NRS 251.030. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: NRS 251.030 requires the Finance Director (for the purpose of the statute acting as the County Auditor) to report to the Board of County Commissioners (or in our case the Board of Supervisors), at each regular meeting thereof, the condition of each fund in the treasury. The "Statement of Cash Receipts and Disbursements" indicates the beginning balance, receipts, disbursements, and the ending balance of each cash account for every fund in the City as of October 12, 2010. It is important to note that there will always be timing differences with these balances - for example while all departments take deposits to the bank on a daily basis, revenue reports are only prepared twice a month and there is usually a lag time between when the reports are prepared and when they are entered into the system.

B) Action to confirm the engagement of Swendseid & Stern as bond counsel to Carson City, Nevada in connection with the $5,000,000 Carson City, Nevada General Obligation (Limited Tax) Various Purpose Refunding Bonds and the $2,600,000 Carson City, Nevada General Obligation (Limited Tax) Park Refunding Bonds. (Nick Providenti)
