9.    Assessor

 9.A   For Possible Action:  To approve the partial removal of Real Property Taxes for the 2018/19 fiscal year for parcel number 007-564-16 (1100 Chaparral Dr.) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $867.51.  (Rhonda Price, rprice@carson.org)

Staff Summary:  The Assessor's Office is requesting approval to remove partial taxes from the 2018/19 Real Property Tax Roll from parcel number 007-564-16 (1100 Chaparral Dr.) in the amount of $867.51 per NRS 361.765.  The owner of the property was entitled to receive a 100% Disabled Veteran Exemption on his real property taxes, however, due to a clerical error, he received only a regular Veteran's exemption. 

 9.B   For Possible Action:  To approve the correction and decrease of the 2018/19 Real Property Assessed Valuation for parcel number 010-661-12 (6788 Saddlehorn Rd.) in the amount of $16,580 per NRS 361.768(3).  (Dave Dawley, ddawley@carson.org)

Staff Summary:   The property owner of 6788 Saddlehorn Rd. removed a converted manufactured home from the property without obtaining a moving permit, nor notified the Assessor's Office of the removal.  Upon placing a new manufactured home on the property the Assessor's Office was notified by the building permit.  The new mobile home was billed on the Personal Property Tax Roll for the 2018/19 fiscal year.  The Assessor's Office is requesting a correction to reduce the 2018/19 Real Property Assessed Valuation from $142,510 to $125,930 to delete the assessed valuation of the converted manufactured home that was removed from the property.  The capped assessed value is $97,105, therefore; there will be no reduction in the 2018/19 Real Property Taxes collected. 

10.    City Manager

 10.A   For Possible Action: To ratify the approval of bills and other requests for payments by the City Manager for the period of July 7, 2018 through August 3, 2018.  (Nancy Paulson, npaulson@carson.org)

 12.A  For Possible Action: To approve Amendment No. 3 to Contract No. 1415-112 (Downtown Carson Street Urban Design by Lumos & Associates, Inc.), to extend the contract date through March 31, 2019. (Carol Akers, CAkers@carson.org and Darren Schulz, DSchulz@carson.org)

Staff Summary:  This contract amendment is to extend the contract term through March 31, 2019.  The construction was started later than anticipated and will be completed at the end of October 2018.  Lumos will need time to complete record drawings after the construction is finished; therefore a contract extension is necessary. 

 12.B   For Possible Action:   To approve Amendment No. 1 to Contract No. 1718-161 to extend the contract date to November 30, 2018, for the purchase and installation of audio/video systems from CourtSmart Digital Systems.  (Carol Akers, CAkers@carson.org and Max Cortes, Mcortes@carson.org)

Staff Summary:  The current contract with CourtSmart Digital Systems expires on July 31, 2018.  The installation is taking longer than expected and therefore a contract extension is necessary.  

 12.C   For Possible Action:  To approve Contract No. 1819-083 (Clinical Treatment & Counseling Services for Justice/Municipal Court) for an amount not to exceed $90,800.00 through June 30, 2019, and Contract No. 1819-084 (Juvenile Court & Juvenile Services with Community Counseling Center), for an amount not to exceed $37,000.00 through June 30, 2019, with both contracts to be funded from various court accounts.  These are professional services contracts and therefore not suitable for public bidding pursuant to NRS 332.115 (1)(b).  (Carol Akers, CAkers@carson.org, Max Cortes, MCortes@carson.org, and Ali Banister, ABanister@carson.org) 

Staff Summary:  These two contracts are being presented together for approval because they are with the same vendor offering similar services for two departments within the City.

 12.D   For Possible Action:  To approve the purchases of Fire Personal Protective Equipment-Turnouts and Fire Rescue Tools and Equipment for the Fire Department utilizing Curtis joinder contract No. 00000170 with NPPGov through June 30, 2019 for a not to exceed annual amount of $111,000 to be funded from the Personal Protective Equipment Account & Fire Rescue Tools and Equipment Account in the General Fund.

Staff Summary:  According to the Third Amended Collective Bargaining Agreement between Carson City and the Carson City Fire Fighters Association, Local #2251 of the International Association of Firefighters (July 1, 2010 to June 30, 2023), the Carson City Fire Department is responsible for providing uniforms, turnouts and safety equipment to all the Fire Department personnel who are active in the field. These items must meet the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) safety standards. The Carson City Fire Department has experienced an influx of new personnel in the last two years, and as a result, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) expenditures have risen substantially.

Staff Summary: The Clearview Ridge Planned Unit Development tentative map expires on September 6, 2018, unless the Board approves an extension of time as permitted under the current development agreement.  The developer is requesting an extension of time to 2019 as the firms handling the technical drawings are backlogged, and need additional time to finalize drawings. 

 16.B   For Possible Action: To consider adoption of an Order of Abandonment of up to a 20 foot wide public ingress / egress easement from Ash Canyon Road to Wellington South, then north on Wellington West, turning west and ending at the southwest corner of lot 12 of Wellington Crescent Subdivision.  (Reference AB-18-094) (Hope Sullivan, hsullivan@carson.org) 

Staff Summary: The subject easement was recorded August 26, 1992 as document number 133478 to create a non-exclusive easement to allow members of the public a means of ingress and egress to Ash Canyon. Per the recorded document, the easement was to be rescinded and revoked when an additional means of ingress and egress was dedicated that provides members of the public with an alternate access to Ash Canyon. This alternate access for the public was secured by Carson City, and was recorded August 26, 2003 under document 304501.  Therefore, abandonment of the easement is proposed. All notice requirements have been met in compliance with NRS 278.480.

 16.C   For Possible Action: To amend the Planning Commission Bylaws to change the month of election of Planning Commission officers (i.e. Chair and Vice-Chair) from July to January to coincide with the start of Commissioners’ terms. (Lee Plemel, lplemel@carson.org)

(Lee Plemel, lplemel@carson.org)

Staff Summary: Currently, banners and freestanding flags are permitted for up to 30 days in any 90-day period, and A-frame signs are prohibited except within the downtown area. The proposed changes include allowing flags, without time limitation, only attached to buildings, allowing A-frame signs adjacent to all businesses, and removing time limitations for banners.
