(Randal Munn)

Staff Summary: The District Attorney's Office does not currently have any staff admitted to practice before the Sacramento Division federal district court, and time limitations for filing an amicus brief in support of the TRPA's motion for summary judgment required immediate action in drafting and filing the amicus brief under signature of the City Attorney's Office of South Lake Tahoe. The Agreement does not provide for any attorney's fees compensation and nominal costs will be shared by all amici (Carson City, Douglas County, Washoe County, Placer County, CA, El Dorado County, CA, and the City of South Lake Tahoe, CA).

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 approximately $9,292 for Federal Fiscal Year 2013. 

B) For Possible Action: To accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury and the statements of receipts and expenditures through December 10, 2013 per NRS 251.030 and NRS 354.290. (Nick Providenti)

NRS 354.290 requires the County Auditor to report to the Board of Supervisors a statement of revenues and expenditures based on the accounts and funds as were used in the budget. A more detailed accounting is available on the City's website - www.carson.org.

9-3. Fire 

For Possible Action: To adopt a resolution of the Carson City Board of Supervisors accepting a fee schedule for use in billing for Fire Department services. (Stacey Giomi)   Late Material (12/16/13)

Staff Summary: The Fire Department is often called upon to provide emergency response, emergency management, and/or educational assistance to citizens or other local governments. In those instances where these services are provided on a fee for service basis, the Department must have a fee schedule on hand. This fee schedule is an updated version of the one adopted by the Board in January of 2013 and will be used to seek reimbursement for services provided under assistance for hire circumstances, for the provision of elective educational programs, or to seek restitution in the case of a conviction in a court of law.

9-4. City Manager 

For Possible Action: To ratify the approval of bills and other requests for payments by the City Manager for the period of November 12, 2013 thru December 9, 2013. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: All bills or other requests for payment verified per CCMC 2.29.010 shall be presented by the controller, together with the register book of demands and warrants to the city manager who shall audit the same, and if found authorized, correct and legal, shall signify by his signature, as agent for the board, upon the register book of demands and warrants those demands which are approved or disapproved by him. Upon approval, the warrants, as prepared aforesaid, shall issue. The City Manager shall then cause the register book of bills and other requests for payment and warrants to be presented at least once a month to the board of supervisors, who shall by motion entered into its minutes, ratify the action taken on the bills or other requests for payment.

9-5. Parks and Recreation 

For Possible Action: To approve the current and temporary location of the World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial in Mills Park to be designated as the permanent location for the monument. (Roger Moellendorf)

Staff Summary: Supervisor Jim Shirk has requested that the current and temporary location of the 9/11 Memorial in Mills Park be designated as the permanent site, which is located southeast of the front entrance to the Pony Express Pavilion's front plaza area. It was agreed by all that the current site is not very accessible or functional due to the lack of improvements or amenities. Staff has not invested in the current site to date due to the anticipated relocation of the memorial per the direction of the Board of Supervisors' action taken on January 19, 2012. Since that time Supervisor Shirk has found it difficult to find the donations and funds necessary to relocate the memorial to the permanent site. After communications with staff we now believe that leaving the memorial at its current location will be more cost effective and hopefully enable future improvements to come sooner. Staff has identified some possible improvements such as ADA compliant paths to access the memorial, a small plaza area, lighting, interpretive signs, a flag pole, and additional landscaping. There is no allocated funding at this time for any improvements to the memorial. The request to designate the current site as the permanent location was brought before the Parks and Recreation Commission and unanimously approved on December 3, 2013.

9-6. Health and Human Services 

For Possible Action: To accept a grant in the amount of $38,700 from National Association of County & City Health Officials (NACCHO) for the support of local public health departments in undertaking accreditation preparation activities. (Nicki Aaker)

Staff Summary: Carson City Health & Human Services (CCHHS) has been actively pursuing national accreditation. Our Statement of Intent was submitted on April 1, 2013. This grant will allow CCHHS to fund the following activities: (1) support 50% of the PHAB Accreditation Fees; (2) would allow CCHHS to plan and promote an "Accreditation Kick-Off Day," which would feature representatives from an accredited Local Health Department (LHD) through the NACCHO's Speakers' Bureau to present about the value of Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation, the accreditation process, and specific topics related to PHAB accreditation; and (3) would allow CCHHS to hire an outside consultant from an accredited LHD to review current PHAB documentation in relation to the PHAB measure requirements.

9-7. Justice/Municipal Court 

For Possible Action: To approve converting a Judicial Clerk 3, 3/4 time Grade 31 position to a Judicial Clerk 1, full time Grade 22 position in the Justice/Municipal Court upon retirement of the current employee occupying the position. (Max Cortes)

Staff Summary: The Judicial Clerk 3, Grade 31, position has been occupied by an employee who is retiring in January 2014 after serving the Justice/Municipal Court for 24 years. The position is fully benefitted at a cost of $40,514 salary and $25,987 for benefits for a total cost of $66,501. The current employee works 30 hours per week. Converting the position to a Judicial Clerk 1 position, Grade 22, and to full time is $34,466 for salary and $24,020 for benefits for a total cost of $58,486.

Staff Summary: This is an opportunity to inform the Board of Health about the progress made on the Community Health Improvement Plan's Community Issue D: Improving Access to Health Care - Mental Health. According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, Nevada's mental health care system received a "D" grade (CHIP, 2012, p. 15). In 2010, suicide was the 10th leading cause of death in Carson City (Griswold and Packham, 2011). According to the Carson City Sheriff's Office in 2011, the number of suicides nearly doubled between January 2009 and August 2011. As a result of the Community Health Assessment, the outcome objectives for this issue are: 1) Identify mental health access and needs for Carson City residents, 2) Determine mental health providers who offer care to low-income and/or uninsured/underinsured populations (Get Healthy Carson City!: A 2020 Health Action Plan: A Community Health Improvement Plan, 2012, p. 15).

Staff Summary: This is an opportunity to inform the Board of Health about the progress of the Immunization Billing Project, the School-Located Vaccination Program, and potential implications of the Affordable Care Act. The Immunization Billing grant received in 2012 made it possible for CCHHS to obtain additional insurance contracts. Under these contracts, CCHHS is able to bill for services provided to patients within the clinic and through outreach programs who are insured, either publically or privately. 

E) For Possible Action: Board of Health to approve, acknowledge and abide by Carson City Health and Human Services' (CCHHS) Conflict of Interest Policy, which includes signing the Acknowledgment of Receipt of the Title X Conflict of Interest Policy. Under this policy, members of governing body are prohibited from using their position for private gain as required by Title X. (Nicki Aaker)

Staff Summary: CCHHS receives funding from Title X to provide family planning services. A Title X audit was conducted. One of the findings of the audit was the absence of a policy stating that employees, consultants or members of governing/advisory body may not use his/her position for private gain. The corrective action taken was to write a Conflict of Interest policy and present it to the Board of Health for approval, acknowledgment, and agreement to abide by the policy which requires signatures. 

F) For Possible Action: Report and possible acceptance of Animal Services' donations received since the last Board of Health meeting (9/1/13 - 11/30/13). (Nicki Aaker)

Applications were received from Denise Stewart, Wendy Talavera and Denise Bauer. Reappointment requests were received from Tina Peterson and Anne Keast.

B) For Possible Action: To provide direction to staff as to what projects to include in the proposed "Plan of Expenditure" such as the Animal Services Facility, the Multipurpose Athletic Center, and the Downtown, North Carson Street, South Carson Street, William Street and Hwy 50 East corridor improvement projects as well as timing to provide the two week notice prior to conducting a public hearing (as required by the NRS 377B.100 (6)) for the adoption of the "Plan of Expenditure."  (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: On November 21, 2013, the Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 to support proceeding with construction of the Animal Services Facility, the Multipurpose Athletic Center, and the Downtown, North Carson Street, South Carson Street, William Street and Hwy 50 East corridor improvement projects. Because the potential funding for the projects is the Infrastructure Tax under NRS 377B a public hearing must be held prior to adoption of the plan and the imposition of a 1/8th cent sales tax.
