9-1. Assessor

A) For Possible Action: To approve the partial removal and refund of Real Property Taxes for Parcel Number 009-161-10 (S. Carson St.) for the 2011/12 tax year per NRS 361.055 in the amount of $27.04. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: Assessor's Parcel Numbers 009-161-10 (S. Carson St.) was a parcel that the State of Nevada, Department of Transportation was leasing to a private party and was therefore taxable. The State of Nevada, Department of Transportation recorded a "termination of lease" document on February 3, 2012. This parcel is now exempt per NRS 361.055. The Assessor's Office is asking that the property tax be prorated from July 1, 2011 through February 3, 2012 and that the remaining amount be removed and refunded from the 2011/12 Real Property Tax Roll.

B) For Possible Action: To approve the partial removal and refund of Real Property Taxes for Parcel Numbers 010-011-24 and 010-011-25 (Section 5, T15N R21E & portion of Sections 7 and 8) for the 2011/12 tax year per NRS 361.060 in the amount of $399.34. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: Assessor's Parcel Numbers 010-011-24 and 010-011-25 were purchased by Carson City and the deed recorded on January 31, 2012. These properties are located in northeast Carson City and are now exempt per NRS 361.060. The Assessor's office is asking that the taxes be prorated from July 1, 2010 through January 31, 2012 and that the remaining amount be removed and refunded from the 2011/12 Real Property Tax Roll.

9-2. Finance

A) For Possible Action: To accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury through February 21, 2012 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.

B) For Possible Action: Action to accept an adjustment in the Public Work's allocations to the Carson City Cost Allocation spreadsheet for use in preparing the FY 2013 Carson City Budget. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: The Board accepted the Cost Allocation Plan prepared by Mahoney and Associates using financial information for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 for use in preparing the FY 2013 Carson City Budget at its February 16, 2012 Board Meeting.

The spreadsheet allocating indirect costs changed due to Public Work's allocations changing. The decision was made to directly charge some Public Works employees charges directly to capital projects instead of charging their time indirectly. This will give us a better accounting of the actual costs of the capital projects being charged by Public Works employees. This spreadsheet was provided at the February 16, 2012 Board Meeting as "Late Material" but the spreadsheet was not read into the record.

9-3. Purchasing and Contracts

A) For Possible Action: To accept the Work as completed, to accept the Contract Summary as presented, and to approve the Release of Final Payment in the amount of $42,914.56 for Contract No. 1011-051 titled Carson City Prison Hill Water Tank #2 Tank Construction Plans Project to Sierra Nevada Construction, Inc. (Kim Belt)

Project included all earthwork, trenching, plumbing and piping, fencing, concrete, electrical conduits and panels, vaults and tank coatings for the complete installation of the new water tank. Project also included the demolition and disposal of an existing three (3) million gallon concrete water tank. Carson City received a grant of $960,000.00 from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for construction of this project.

B) For Possible Action: To determine that Shaheen Beauchamp Builders, LLC. is the lowest responsive and responsible bidder pursuant to NRS Chapter 338 and to award Contract No. 1112-154 Carson City Public Works Tenant Improvement of Building "C" to Shaheen Beauchamp Builders, LLC. for a bid amount of $169,062.00 (which includes: Schedule A plus Schedule B) plus a contingency amount not to exceed $16,906.00 to be funded from the Water and Sewer Facility Addition Account Fund as provided in FY 2011/2012. (Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: Carson City received sealed bids for all labor, materials, tools and equipment necessary for the Carson City Public Works Tenant Improvement of Building "C". The Project includes, but is not limited to the addition of offices and conference room within an existing metal building, remodel locker room and office space, and mezzanine storage.

C) For Possible Action: To accept Public Works recommendation to approve Amendment No. 1 to Contract No. 1011-226 with PacificWest Energy Solutions, Inc. titled "Carson City Public Safety/Sheriff's Administration/WWTP Solar Project" to change the scope of work, increase the contract in an amount of $12,000.00 from $145,000.00 to $157,000.00 and to increase the contract term from January 30, 2012 to June 30, 2012. (Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: On May 5, 2011, The Carson City Board of Supervisors approved the above listed contract in the amount of $145,000.00. This request is to amend the contract scope of work, amount and term. This contract is to provide Professional Services which include: Solar Photovoltaic System Design, Specifications and Contract Document Preparation, Bidding Assistance and Construction Management for the Carson City Public Safety/Sheriff's Administration/WWTP Solar Project.

During the design process, it was determined that it was more cost effective to combine all three projects at the Wastewater Treatment Plant rather than pay the additional costs associated with re-roofing the Sheriff's Administration and Courthouse Buildings, while there was still remaining life in those roofs. The contract is being amended to cover additional design costs associated with increasing the size of the system at the Wastewater Treatment Plant as well as additional costs incurred while finding a suitable location for the installation at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.
