For Possible Action: Discussion and possible action to authorize the Mayor to sign a Quit Claim Deed and Declaration of Value to accept the transfer of properties on Brown Street from Lyon County to Carson City, APN's 008-303-15, -16, -21, -36, -37, and -39. (Lee Plemel) Late Material submitted 06-03-13

Staff Summary: In 2005 the Western Nevada HOME Consortium (WNHC) funded the purchase of properties on Brown Street using federal HOME funds in order to construct 45 units of affordable, for-ownership low-income housing. This project failed to materialize due to the economic downturn and the eventual bankruptcy of the developer, Citizens For Affordable Housing (CAHI). Since then, Lyon County, the lead agency for the WNHC, has paid back their investment to HUD and now owns the property. The State of Nevada had also invested Federal funds in the property but has also paid back the funds to HUD. Lyon County is now interested in donating the property to Carson City since Carson City was a member of the WNHC and would have benefitted from its development. A Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment has been done on the property and there was no evidence of recognized environmental conditions in connection with the property. Carson City would be able to either keep the property for public use, auction the property for private development, or donate the property to an organization that would build affordable housing.

23. City Manager 

For Possible Action: To approve and authorize the Mayor to sign Amendment No. 2 to the Ground Lease between The Seasons II Limited Partnership (Autumn Village II) and Carson City, which provides that the consideration for the lease will be in part a payment in lieu of ad valorem taxes for this entity in the event that they obtain a tax exemption pursuant to NRS 361.082. Such payment to be calculated as a normal ad valorem tax but only that portion of the tax attributable to Carson City's portion of the tax is payable under the lease. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: The Ground Lease, as amended, provides that rent shall be fixed as one dollar ($1.00), and it was the original intent of the parties that taxes would be the lease payment. The sister facility, Autumn Village I, has a similar lease agreement that was previously amended to provide the authority for tax exemption application and a payment in lieu of taxes as its lease payment. This amendment for Autumn Village II will equalize the lease payment calculation process for the two similarly situated senior housing facilities.

24. Board of Supervisors 

A) For Possible Action: To appoint a member of the Board of Supervisors to the Nevada Association of Counties (NACO) Board of Directors to fill an unexpired term ending December 31, 2013.
