11. City Manager

For Possible Action: Presentation of the Carson City Quarterly Business Review for the period ending September 30, 2011 and approval of revised performance measures for the objective titled, "Families in need are offered short term assistance and provided resources to become self supportive." (Linda Ritter) Late Materials -    Quarterly Business Review       Scorecard

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 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. The scorecard also provides a listing of the initiatives (projects and programs) identified in the strategic plan that support specific objectives. This tool allows the Board and public to monitor our progress in moving the strategic plan forward. It also provides an early warning of operational issues that may affect future resource allocation decisions.

12. Public Works - Planning and Zoning

For Possible Action: To introduce, on first reading, an ordinance amending Carson City Municipal Code Title 18 Appendix B Development Standards, Division 4, Signs, Section 4.8, Requirements for Billboards and Off-Premises Signs, by adding a new Subsection 4.8.7, Off-Premises Signs on City Bus Shelters, to allow advertising on passenger bus shelters subject to specific criteria. (ZCA-11-051) (Lee Plemel)

Staff Summary: The proposed amendment will provide for advertising displays that are approximately four feet in width and six feet in height, and attached to existing or future transit shelters that are already positioned in the public right-of-way as an amenity to transit customers. This amendment will allow Carson City RTC the ability to sell advertising on passenger shelters for the purposes of generating income that will partially off-set the operating subsidy being contributed by Carson City to support the Jump Around Carson transit system. Currently signage on any structure within the public right-of-way is prohibited.
