9-1. Assessor

A) For Possible Action: To approve the correction and increase of the taxes for the 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12 tax years for parcel number 005-061-03 (4300 Ryan Wy) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $3,394.92. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: Due to an error, one of the buildings was inadvertently removed from the properties assessor profile. This correction will result in an increase in the amount of $774.47 for the 2008/09, an increase of $833.65 for the 2009/10 fiscal year, an increase of $872.88 for the 2010/11 fiscal year and an increase in the amount of $913.92 for the 2011/12 fiscal year. The Assessor's office is requesting that the current fiscal year taxes be corrected along with the proceeding three years for a total amount due of $3,394.92 per NRS 361.765.

B) For Possible Action: To approve the correction, decrease and refund of the taxes for the 2011/12 tax year for parcel number 010-622-19 (1783 Carson River Rd) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $977.04. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: Due to a factual error, the improvement value for the property located at 1783 Carson River Rd (parcel number 010-622-19) was incorrect for the 2011/12 fiscal year. This resulted in an incorrect tax bill for the 2011/12 year. The Assessor's office is requesting that the current fiscal year taxes be corrected and refunded in the amount of $977.04 per NRS 361.765.

C) For Possible Action: To approve the correction and increase of the taxes for the 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12 tax years for parcel number 009-031-20 (340 Betts St) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $2,794.33. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: During reappraisal it was discovered that in 2008 when the new construction was added to the roll, the already existing building was deleted from the tax roll. The error has been corrected; however, the taxes for the current year and the previous three years of taxes need to be adjusted. The adjustments would result in an increase in the amount of $665.02 for the 2008/09, an increase of $685.00 for the 2009/10 fiscal year, an increase of $705.54 for the 2010/11 fiscal year and an increase in the amount of $738.77 for the 2011/12 fiscal year; for a total of $2,794.33. The Assessor's office is requesting that the current fiscal year taxes be corrected along with the proceeding three years per NRS 361.765.

9-2. Finance

For Possible Action: To accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury through March 27, 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.

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 $8,801.83 for Contract No. 1112-105 Carson River Park Phase 2A - 5013 Carson River Road to Horizon Construction, Inc. (Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: Project consisted of constructing additional parking for ten (10) cars, a group picnic shelter, new sidewalks, crosswalk and parking lot striping, siding and painting existing well house, landscaping, revegetation, and irrigation to an existing park.

B) For Possible Action: To approve Contract No. 1112-173, a request to have the Board of Supervisors determine that the listed City property is no longer required for public use and deem its sale by public auction desirable and in the best interest of Carson City. (Kim Belt)

9-4. Fire

For Possible Action: To authorize the mayor to sign the Operating Plan (Attachment A to the July 2010 Interlocal Contract) between the Carson City Fire Department and the Nevada Division of Forestry. (Stacey Giomi)

Staff Summary: This document is an update of the Annual Operating Plan (AOP) between the City and the Nevada Division of Forestry. The document provides the details of how we will provide mutual assistance between the agencies for responses to wildland fires as designated in the master agreement dated July of 2010. The AOP delineates specific information about operational procedures, district boundaries, and parameters under which assistance will be provided.

9-5. Health & Human Services and Fire

For Possible Action: To approve changes in the Health and Human Services Department and the Fire Department FY 2012 budgets as follows: eliminating the Emergency Preparedness Coordinator (Unc. 15) position and the Public Health Preparedness Coordinator position (Unc. 19) and adding a Deputy Emergency Manager position (Unc. 22) and to provide a 2% equity adjustment to the Epidemiologist position and the Public Health Preparedness Program Manager position. (Marena Works & Stacey Giomi)

Staff Summary: Emergency preparedness is a stated goal of Carson City. This re-organization will improve efficiency of emergency preparedness by sharing duties presently held by two individuals and moving the coordination for those responsibilities to one individual. The equity adjustments are necessary for the individuals who have had the responsibility of additional grant programs placed under their supervision and must take a greater role in grant writing. Additionally, when compared to similar positions within the state, these two positions remain the lowest paid for the work and responsibility they provide. These positions are 100% grant funded.

9-6. Parks and Recreation

For Possible Action: To authorize the Mayor or his designee to execute a joint use agreement with the State of Nevada to provide for public access and parking for Fire Station No. 1. (Juan Guzman)

Staff Summary: This action is for the Board of Supervisors to authorize the execution of a joint use agreement for 10 years with the State of Nevada Division of State Lands in order to provide public access and adequate parking at Fire Station No. 1.

9-7. City Manager

For Possible Action: To appoint Jean Perpich to the Carson City Redevelopment Authority Citizens Committee as a "Business Operator" or "Property Owner" from Redevelopment Area 2 for a three year term that expires in January 2015. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: In September of 2011, The Assessor's office asked for the removal of taxes for Sierra Solar 1 from both the 2010/11 and the 2011/12 fiscal years. The Board of Supervisors requested that the Assessor's office obtain a guidance letter from the Department of Taxation which provided more information on whether or not the change in the law was in fact retroactive and that the qualified systems were not only exempt from taxation as of July 1, 2011, but that any Qualified Systems built prior to that date were exempt as well.

The Fire Department is willing and able to provide these services as a natural extension to the Gurney transportation services provided by the Ambulance Division.

13. City Manager

For Possible Action: To adopt Bill No. 104, on second reading, an ordinance amending Title 7 Animals by amending Chapter 7.13 - Licensing and Regulation and by adding Chapter 7.02 Beekeeping and other matters properly related thereto. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: The existing regulations contained in the Carson City Municipal Code are outdated and do not reflect the current process and procedures for beekeeping within an urban setting. The modifications and additions would provide an opportunity for more citizens to keep bees in a healthy and safe environment.

14. Purchasing and Contracts

A) For Possible Action: To approve Contract No. 1112-148 pursuant to NRS 354.624 with Kafoury Armstrong & Co. to provide auditing services for a task based contract for a not to exceed amount of $304,010.00 to be funded from various funding sources. (Kim Belt)

C) For Possible Action: To determine that Contract No. 1112-174 is a contract for items which may only be contracted from a sole source and therefore not suitable for public bidding pursuant to NRS 332.115 and to approve Contract No. 1112-174 a request for Communication Equipment Purchase provided by Sierra Electronics for a not to exceed cost of $427,000.00 with a contingency of $42,000.00 to be funded from Fleet- Radio Maintenance Funds for Fiscal year 2012/2013. (Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: All two-way radios that the city uses must comply with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirement to transmit using narrowband capability. This capability allows the separation between assigned "channels" to be doubled there-by increasing capacity in the two-way radio spectrum. Many of Carson City's radios are not narrowband capable; these radios must be replaced by December 31, 2012. This purchase will bring Carson City into compliance with the FCC's narrowband requirement by providing new radios and having them installed within our radio system. This contract will be a task based contract with Task 1 to be the replacement of wideband radios with narrowband compliant radios including infrastructure upgrade and Task 2 will be to improve coverage by adding fill in sites.

16. Finance

For Possible Action: To accept the Carson City Cost Allocation Plan for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: City staff is requesting that the Board accept 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. As per last year, the city will use the OMB Circular A 87 Cost plan and will remove any costs associated with the City Manager's Office from the allocation for amounts charged to the Quality of Life Special Revenue Fund. The City will use the Full Cost Allocation plan for amounts charged to all other Enterprise and Special Revenue Funds.

The Board had previously accepted the Cost Allocation Plan at their March 1, 2012 meeting as a consent item. For the transferring of money from an enterprise fund, NRS 354.613(1)(c) requires "For a cost allocation for employees, equipment or other resources related to the purpose of the enterprise fund which is approved by the governing body under a nonconsent item that is separately listed on the agenda for a regular meeting of the governing body."
