The Assessor's Office has attempted to collect the taxes and penalties using the approved methods under NRS 361.535 and 361.450. Most businesses have moved the personal property and we are unable to locate them. These taxes will result in a decrease for the 2008/09, 2009/10 and 2010/11 fiscal years.

(File 1314-060) (Kim Belt)

(File No. 1314-045) (Kim Belt)

Staff Summary: The joinder contract will allow Carson City to purchase the generator off of a nationally, competitively bid contract with NJPA. The proposed generator is a replacement for the standby generator for Public Works. The Public Works complex has received several additions in recent years and the generator was not upgraded to meet the added loads. An electrical design review was performed and it was determined that the facility required a 250KW generator. The current generator is only 88KW. This generator will maintain the critical water and wastewater automation systems as well as the alternate incident command center and public works facilities in the event of a power outage.

(Marena Works)

23. Recess as Board of Supervisors

 Redevelopment Authority

24. Call to Order & Roll Call - Redevelopment Authority

25. City Manager 

A) For Possible Action: Discussion and possible action to recommend to the Board of Supervisors, and approve and authorize the Chair of the Revelopment Agency Board to execute the Third Amended and Restated Commitment Agreement For Continuing Business Operations with Richard Campagni, which provides that upon the Board of Supervisor's approval of a resolution pursuant to NRS 244.2815(2), the Mayor will execute a grant bargain sale deed to Richard Campagni and thereby transfer 2443 South Curry Street (APN 009-051-19) for the purposes of economic development and resolving a continuing business obligation incentive inequity by the transfer of this land in lieu of reducing Campagni's existing redevelopment loan rate from 5% to 3% to match the rate recently provided to Michael Hohl. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: Richard Campagni was the first auto dealer to make a long-term continuing business commitment to Carson City. The City Manager believes there was a moral commitment made by the City that no other auto dealer would obtain a more competitive redevelopment incentive. Of necessity, the economic recession caused a recent reformation of Michael Hohl's continuing business obligation incentive loans, which resulted in Campagni's appeal for a parity concession. Because a reduction of Campagni=s existing redevelopment loan rate from 5% to 3% would create an unreasonable cash windfall to Campagni at the expense of the City's general fund, staff believes the transfer of this unproductive improved land that is contiguous to Carson City Toyota to further economic development in the area would be in the best interests of the public, the Redevelopment Agency and the City.

26. Public Comment

27. For Possible Action: To Adjourn as the Redevelopment Authority

28. Reconvene as the Board of Supervisors

29. City Manager 

A) For Possible Action: Discussion and possible action to adopt a resolution pursuant to NRS 244.2815(2) accepting an appraisal and declaring it in the best interests of the public to authorize the sale or transfer of 2443 South Curry Street (APN 009-051-19) to Richard Campagni upon the Mayor's execution of a grant bargain sale deed without competitive bidding and below market value for the purposes of economic development and to resolve a continuing business obligation incentive inequity by the transfer of this land in lieu of reducing Campagni's existing redevelopment loan rate from 5% to 3% to match the rate recently provided to Michael Hohl, and to approve and authorize the Mayor to execute the Third Amended and Restated Commitment Agreement For Continuing Business Operations with Richard Campagni, which provides for the same. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: Richard Campagni was the first auto dealer to make a long-term continuing business commitment to Carson City. The City Manager believes there was a moral commitment made by the City that no other auto dealer would obtain a more competitive redevelopment incentive. Of necessity, the economic recession caused a recent reformation of Michael Hohl's continuing business obligation incentive loans, which resulted in Campagni's appeal for a parity concession. Because a reduction of Campagni's existing redevelopment loan rate from 5% to 3% would create an unreasonable cash windfall to Campagni at the expense of the City's general fund, staff believes the transfer of this unproductive improved land that is contiguous to Carson City Toyota to further economic development in the area would be in the best interests of the public, the Redevelopment Agency and the City. 

B) For Possible Action: To approve the reestablishment of the Community Development Department and placing the Planning Division, Building Division, Business License Division, Code Enforcement Division and Office of Business Development (Redevelopment) from the Public Works Department to the Community Development Department; and to change the title of the Planning Director to Community Development Director and the Principal Planner to Planning Manager. (Marena Works)   Late Material submitted 07-02-13

Staff Summary: This action will remove the Divisions noted from under control and direction of the Public Works Department and create the Community Development Department to allow for more efficiency by having the Department Director report to the Deputy City Manager. The subject Divisions are located separate from the main Public Works offices and serve separate functions from other Public Works Divisions. The title changes align the Community Development Department with similar Departments within the City. Approval of this action will have no fiscal impact on the City.
