8-1. Assessor

A) For Possible Action: To approve the correction/increase of the taxes for the 2009/10 2010/11, and 2012/13 tax years for parcel number 001-153-01 (1718 N Carson St) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $943.92. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: The owner of assessor parcel number 001-153-01 (1718 N Carson St) was receiving the 3% tax cap on the above stated property located in Carson City. This property is a commercial property with an apartment and was previously receiving the 3% tax cap on 7% of the property. However, due to a clerical error, the property received the 3% tax cap on the entire property instead of only 7%. This error affected the 2009/10, 2010-11, 2011/12 and the 2012/13 real property taxes. The Assessor's office is requesting that the abatement be adjusted so that the taxes will reflect the correct percentage of the 3% tax cap for a total of three years plus the current tax year per NRS 361.765. This will result in an increase to the Real Property tax rolls in the amount of $356.57 (2009/10), $343.05 (2010/11) and $244.30 (2012/13), for a total of $943.92. It should be noted that the 2011/12 Real property taxes were not affected by the tax cap, the 2011/12 taxes were based on the actual assessed value; therefore, there is no adjustment necessary.

B) For Possible Action: To approve the removal of the taxes and any penalties that have occurred for the 2012/13 tax year for parcel number 005-101-01 (Technology Wy) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $21,704.84. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: Due to a clerical error the land use code was not changed and the improvement value was not removed from parcel number 005-101-01 (Technology Wy). This property is considered to be a common area and the value that is attributed to the property is divided between the adjacent properties within the subdivision or parcel map. The Assessors office is asking the taxes and any penalties that have occurred be removed from the 2012/13 Real Property Tax bill per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $21,704.84.

C) For Possible Action: To approve the removal of the taxes from the 2012/13 real property tax roll from Assessor's parcel number 009-721-31 (3134 Heaton Wy) per NRS 361.091 in the amount of $43.08. (Kimberly Adams)

Staff Summary: The Assessor's Office is requesting the Board of Supervisors to remove the taxes from the 2012/13 real property tax roll from Assessor's parcel number 009-721-31 (3134 Heaton Wy) in the amount of $43.08 per NRS 361.091. The owner of the property was entitled to receive a surviving spouse exemption on her real property taxes for the 2012/13 fiscal year. However, due to a clerical error, the exemption was not applied. The Assessor's office is asking for the 2012/13 taxes to be adjusted to reflect the exemption.

8-2. Finance

A) For Possible Action: To accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury through August 7, 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: To confirm the engagement of Swendseid & Stern as bond counsel to Carson City, Nevada in connection with the $3,500,000 Carson City, Nevada Highway Revenue Refunding Bonds, Series 2012. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: The agreement between the City and the firm of Swendseid and Stern sets forth the role proposed to be served and the responsibilities proposed to be assumed as bond counsel.

C) For Possible Action: To adopt a resolution electing to receive a share of the State of Nevada=s Secure Rural Schools (SRS) revenues pursuant to Sections 102(a)(1)(B) and 103 of the Secure Rural Schools and Community Self Determination Act of 2000, which has been amended and re authorized for FFY2012, referred to as the "full county payment amount." (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: Title I of SRS2008 gives each eligible county the right to elect to receive either its traditional share of revenues from the National Forest lands pursuant to the Act of May 23, 1908 and Section 13 of the Act of March 1, 1911 (the "25 percent payments"), or instead to receive a guaranteed minimum share of the State payment pursuant to Sections 102 (a)(1)(B) and 103 (the "full county payment amount"). Carson City expects to net $8,583 for Federal Fiscal Year 2012.

8-3. Purchasing and Contracts

A) For Possible Action: To accept the quarterly summary report of all active grants made to Carson City as well as a listing of all pending grants. (Kim Belt)

B) For Possible Action: To determine that Contract No. 1213-069 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. 1213-069 a request for Sodium Hypochlorite Solution provided by Sierra Chemical Co. at a cost of .934 per gallon through June 30, 2017 subject to escalation and/or de-escalation provisions with the option to renew for five (5) additional years subject to negotiation.

(Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: This contract is for the completion of a LOMR for the SW Carson City watersheds prior to the completion of the full freeway improvements. Accordingly, this single revised scope of remaining work will eliminate minor portions of Manhard's scope of services from previous contracts, and add new tasks required to address the City's changing needs, as the floodplain mapping has evolved over the past few years based on FEMA's re-study limits and revisions. The addition of the freeway and its effect on stormwater conveyances and resulting floodplain limits is also accounted for in this new scope of services.

D) 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 $330,685.59 for Contract No. 1011-201 North/South Water Transmission Main Project - Phase II to Contri Construction Company. (Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: The above noted parties have built a microwave interconnect between repeater sites and connecting the various agencies' networks. The build-out of the system was accomplished with federal interoperable communications funds. This agreement is the next step in the process and will provide a framework for the development of a committee to oversee utilization of the interconnect system.

B) For Possible Action: To authorize the Mayor to sign the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service Communications Use Lease. (Stacey Giomi)

Staff Summary: Carson City maintains a communications site on Snow Valley Peak along the Carson Range. The U.S. Forest Service manages the land on behalf of the federal government. A management plan for the site has existed for several years, but no lease has ever been executed. The approval of this lease will grant Carson City official access and responsibility for managing the users and operation on Snow Valley Peak.

8-5. Public Works

A) For Possible Action: To approve and authorize the Mayor to sign the Water Lease Agreement for Lost Lakes between Carson City and Carson Water Subconservancy District. (Thomas Guinn)

Staff Summary: Approving this Water Lease Agreement will provide Carson City with up to, but not to exceed, 50.0 acre feet of additional surface water, allowing equivalent rest of groundwater resources from October 1, 2012 until March 31, 2013. It has been the past practice of Carson City to lease these water rights as a part of our conjunctive use management plan.

B) For Possible Action: To approve the promotion of a Storm/Sewer Technician 1 to a Storm/Sewer Technician 2 within the Public Works Department. (Darren Schulz)

Staff Summary: This Technician has obtained all the required certifications and meets all the required standards for the position.

C) For Possible Action: To approve filling a vacant Constructor Inspector position with a Construction Manager position and adding a Document Control Specialist position. (Darren Schulz)

Staff Summary: Approval of this modification to staffing will allow Public Works staff to perform a significant portion of the construction management services currently done by consultants. This would result in a savings of approximately $241,000 in the cost of doing capital projects annually.

D) For Possible Action: To adopt a resolution and approve an interlocal agreement between Carson City and the Carson City School District for the purpose of exchanging property in the vicinity of the Pioneer High School and North Stewart Street Extension. (Jeff Sharp)

Staff Summary: A portion of the North Stewart Street Extension project was built on School District property adjacent to the Pioneer High School with the permission of the School District. The City required a total of 24,501 square feet of property from the School District in order to accommodate right of way and public utility easements for existing North Stewart Street improvements. In turn, the School District desires to acquire 25,742 square feet of surplus property owned by the City immediately south of the Pioneer High School to accommodate future expansion of the campus. Since the square foot areas of properties in question are nearly identical, the tax payer base is essentially the same, a straight land swap would be beneficial for both parties, and would be in the best interest of the public, a land swap is being sought.

The purpose of this QI Award Program is to support health departments to become more proficient in the adoption and application of QI and to meet the accreditation standards and measures set by the Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). Selected health departments will also be provided with additional opportunities, such as educational webinars with QI experts and sponsored attendance at a national accreditation and QI-focused meeting (the "Open Forum" meeting).

17. Sheriff

For Possible Action: To adopt Bill No. 109, on second reading, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code Title 4, Licenses and Business Regulations, Chapter 4.16 - Solicitors and Canvassers, amending Section 4.16.010 - Permit Required, to eliminate canvassers and other non-commercial first amendment solicitors from the title and permit requirement and to add peddlers, amending Section 4.16.020 - Definition, to clarify and expand definitions and delete the sheriff's application process from the section, amending Section 4.16.040 - Investigation and Issuance, to change the section name and create a new permit registration process and denial due process and permit fee schedule, amending Section 4.16.050 - Badges, by deleting the badge deposit and refund process and prohibiting use of an expired badge, amending Section 4.16.060 - Revocation of Permit, to add clarification to the permit revocation due process, amending Section 4.16.070 - Appeal, to change the section's name and delete the appeal process and replace it with a misdemeanor prohibition for any and all types of solicitors that violate a posted no soliciting sign, amending Section 4.16.080 - Expiration of Permits, to make expiration language changes, amending Section 4.16.100 - Hours of Soliciting, to delete the section, amending Section 4.16.110 - Certain Salesmen Exempted, to change the section's name and to clarify and expand the list of persons exempt from the permit requirement, and other matters properly related thereto.

Staff Summary: The existing solicitors' ordinance was adopted prior to current applicable case law and has not been previously updated. Compliance with current law has been accomplished by non-strict enforcement of the current ordinance under advice of the District Attorney's office. The applicable case law allows reasonable time, place and manner restrictions on "commercial speech" though it too is considered 1st Amendment speech. Door to door soliciting is either commercial speech or pure 1st Amendment speech (for example: political or religious speech). Generally, the restrictions that the law might allow to be placed upon commercial speech are not allowed with regard to pure 1st Amendment speech. This amendment to the Carson City Municipal Code is necessary to bring the City's ordinance in compliance with current law on this subject.

18. Public Works - Planning

The Regional Transportation Commission passed a Resolution requesting the Board of Supervisors issue the Highway Revenue Refunding bonds at their meeting on August 8, 2012.

The estimated par amount of the 2012 Refunding Bonds is $3,329,200, which will refund $3,140,000 of outstanding debt. The total interest savings is estimated at $228,674, with a present value savings estimated at $197,277.

Presentation of the Carson City Quarterly Business Review for the period ending June 30, 2012. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: This item represents the quarterly business review related to the City-wide performance scorecard. A scorecard is a tool that focuses our attention on those things most important, aligns our activities throughout the organization, measures our progress and monitors projects (initiatives) that improve our performance. In the report the objective represents what we want to achieve as a City. The performance measures give us a progress report on meeting those objectives by comparing actual data with established targets. These targets represent our expected and/or desired performance. If targets are not being met, staff focuses on those areas and determines what, if anything, can be done to reverse the situation. Initiatives are those projects adopted by the Board to support their strategic objectives and move performance in a positive direction.
