Any member of the Board or any citizen may request that an item be taken from the consent agenda, discussed and acted upon separately during this meeting. The Mayor, or the Mayor Pro-Tem, retains discretion in deciding whether or not an item will be pulled off the consent agenda.

A "Statement of Cash Receipts and Disbursements" indicates the beginning balance, receipts, disbursements, and the ending balance of each cash account for every fund in the City as of April 12, 2011.

Action to approve an interlocal agreement between the City and NDOT whereby the City will allow NDOT to apply micro-surface paving and restripe Old Hot Springs Road (a City street) from the junction of Goni Road to the dead end at the I-580 grade separation, at no cost to the City. (Jeff Sharp)

Staff Summary: NDOT has an office on Old Hot Springs Road. NDOT workers every day walk along the roadway for exercise. The roadway is plenty wide enough, but not striped properly to allow designated bicycle/pedestrian walkways along the edges. There aren't any sidewalks along the roadway. The proposed micro-paving will obliterate the existing striping and create a nice smooth surface. The proposed new striping will result in a 6-foot wide bicycle/pedestrian lane along each side while still accommodating a full width traffic lane in each direction.

9-3. Purchasing and Contracts

The current contract is set to expire on June 30, 2011. The Statement of Stipulations has been revised to reflect there are no longer cafeteria services only vending services.

The project consists of, but not limited to, installing approximately 29,000-feet of new 24" PVC water line beginning along Bigelow Drive at the southerly Douglas County line and extending north and terminating near the intersection of Fairview Drive and East Fifth Street, in Carson City, Nevada. The project also includes the construction of approximately 58,100-feet of new 4" PVC conduit, approximately 6,300-feet of new 8" PVC sewer line and sixty-five 4-inch sewer laterals, a 12' wide (64,300 square-feet) paved asphalt concrete (AC) multi-use pathway; 94,300 square-feet of AC roadway pavement and associated improvements, installation of storm drain structures and appurtenances, installation of a 18-inch flow meter station and appurtenances, installation of a 16-inch flow meter station and appurtenances, and installation of a flow control station and appurtenances.

Staff Summary: The lifespan of SCBA is 15 years. The city's current packs will begin to expire in FY2012. The Fire Department applied for and received a grant to purchase new SCBA. The grant does not cover everything that needs to be replaced, but does cover about 75% of our needs.

Once we both make this purchase all of the departments in the Quad County area will have the same SCBA.

At the February 17, 2011 Board of Supervisors meeting, the Board reviewed and approved the 2011-12 CDBG Public Services and Public Improvements funding recommendations. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has not yet announced their award to Carson City for the FY11 annual cycle. The funding amounts listed in the Annual Action Plan are based on FY10 funding ($474,456) and will likely change when FY11 funding is announced.

15. Finance

A) Discussion and possible action regarding the Cost Allocation methodology for allocating and charging indirect costs to Carson City's Quality of Life Special Revenue Fund. (Nick Providenti)

Staff Summary: City staff is requesting clarification from the Board regarding indirect costs charged to Carson City's Quality of Life Special Revenue Fund. OMB Circular A-87 cost plans identify indirect costs in strict accordance with federal accounting standards, and are used as the basis for securing reimbursements from federal, state and local grant contract sources. Per OMB Circular A-87, certain costs are excluded from the allocation process including legislative costs, which include the costs of the Board of Supervisors and other "general government" expenses. Full cost (GAAP) allocation plans are used to claim reimbursement from enterprise funds, internal service funds and special revenue funds which require centralized support activities such as accounting, human resources and information technology and typically include legislative costs. A full cost allocation plan is a way to ensure that each department/division and function has its "true" full costs identified and to charge those departments/ divisions for the internal services that are required to support the direct services provided. Staff has been charging the Quality of Life Special Revenue Fund based on the Full Cost (GAAP) allocation plan since 2002.

B) Presentation and discussion with staff of the proposed 2011-12 Fiscal Year budget for Carson City which includes the general fund, enterprise funds and all other funds. (Nick Providenti)

Additional Backup Materials - Section 1    Section 2    Section 3    Section 4    Section 5

Staff Summary: Staff has prepared a balanced budget in light of the severe financial hardships that are facing the city. The goal for this and future years is to balance expenditures to revenues by reducing programs, containment of staffing and implementing efficiencies where identified. Staff will present the assumptions made during the process and the outlook for the future.
