from:   Steve H. Thacker, City Manager
subject:  City Manager’s Summary of December 1, 2015 Council Meetings
date:       November 25, 2015

5:30    RDA/ACB Meeting – The Centerville Redevelopment Agency (RDA) Board and the Administrative Control Board (ACB) of the Davis Center for the Performing Arts will meet at 5:30 p.m. prior to the regular council meeting.  The Lease and Operating Agreement pertaining to the use of the performing arts center by CenterPoint Legacy Theatre (CPT) requires that CPT submit their annual budget for the following year to the RDA/ACB for review.  The RDA/ACB has specific authority to approve the facilities maintenance portion of CPT’s budget, and may comment on the other portions of the proposed budget.  CPT must then adopt their final budget by December 20 each year.

The other item on the RDA/ACB meeting agenda is the approval of several Lease Agreement amendments which accomplish the following: 1) creation of a Capital Projects Reserve Fund (CRF) and 2) revising the deadline for submittal of CPT’s annual audit report—making the deadline May 31 instead of April 30 each year.  The RDA/ACB discussed the need for these amendments in a meeting earlier this year and directed staff to draft such amendments.  The CRF would be the fourth reserve fund created pertaining to the performing arts center.  The other three—created by the original Lease Agreement—are the Operations Reserve Fund and the Maintenance Reserve Fund under the control of CPT, and the Theatre Reserve Fund under the control of the RDA.  Dinner will be available about 5:15 p.m.

7:00   Regular City Council Meeting

E.1.   Minutes Review – The minutes to be approved are enclosed, including the October 29 work session minutes, which were revised to include more detail as requested by the City Council.

E.2.   Report from Dee Hansen re Sewer District – Dee Hansen is Centerville City’s representative on the Board of Trustees of the South Davis Sewer District.  He has asked for some time to report on the finances and operations of the District, including a potential “food waste to energy” project which the Board is currently evaluating.

E.3.   Reappointment of Sewer Board Representative – Mayor Cutler recommends Dee Hansen be reappointed as Centerville’s representative on the Sewer District Board.  His current four-year term ends January 1, 2016.  The City Council may reappoint Mr. Hansen for another term; may appoint the Mayor or a Councilmember to fill that position; or may advertise the opening for a 30-day period and hold a public hearing before selecting someone else.

E.4.    Public Hearing – Porter Walton Townhomes Subdivision Final Plat – This townhome project on Porter Lane received site plan and conditional use approval from the Planning Commission several months ago.  The project includes 46 townhomes and an existing home.  Approval of the Subdivision Final Plat would divide the townhome portion for sale as 46 individually-owned units.  The Planning Commission recommends approval of the Final Plat.

E.5.    Report from Museum Board Chair re Projects – Spencer Packer, Chair of the Whitaker Museum Board, has asked for some time to report on the completion of a number of projects funded with CLG grants, City funds, and donations.  These projects have made significant improvements to the Whitaker Home and grounds.

E.6.    Deuel Creek Historic District – For the past few years, the Landmarks Commission has been studying the possibility of creating a historic district in the Old Townsite portion of Centerville—an area bounded by Main Street, Parrish Lane, 400 East and Porter Lane (both sides).  Recently the Planning Commission discussed the recommendations of the Landmarks Commission and now recommends the City Council approve the proposal.  The City Council will first discuss the proposal at the December 1 meeting, then continue the matter to December 15 when a public hearing will be held before taking action.  The proposal is incentive-based and would not force any property owner to do more than is required by the standards of the current residential zone.  The goal is to encourage new construction and remodeling in this area to be done in a manner that compliments the historic nature of the existing architecture.  The proposed incentives are in the form of reduced building setbacks and reduced building permit fees.

E.7.    Discussion re Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance – Earlier this year, the City Council discussed a proposed ordinance that would allow accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in single-family residential areas.  That discussion was put on hold, however, when the Council’s attention was focused on amending the South Main Street Corridor Overlay Zone.  The Council is now taking up this matter again.  They will discuss the proposed ordinance at the December 1 meeting, then continue the matter to December 15 when a public hearing will be held before taking action.

E.8.    Mayor’s Report – Mayor Cutler will brief the Council on the Tentative Budget for the South Davis Fire Agency.  The intent is for the Fire Agency Board to approve a six-month budget for the period January 1 –June 30, 2016; then later the new Local Fire Service Area/District would adopt a budget for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2016.  The six-month Tentative Budget will be attached to NovusAgenda after some corrections are made.

E.9.    City Council Liaison Report – Councilman Higginson will report on the Waste District and Mosquito Abatement District.  He represents Centerville on the boards of those two special districts.

E.10.    City Manager’s Report – I will update the Council on the status of the traffic signal installation project at 1250 West Parrish Lane.

E.11.    Miscellaneous Business – Councilmembers Wright and Ivie have asked for some time to review/discuss the use of the City’s newsletter and utility bill insert by non-city organizations.  This matter has been postponed several times due to long meetings.

E.12.    Closed Meeting, if necessary – At this time I do not know of a need for a closed meeting, but the agenda allows for that possibility.

E.13.    Appointments to City Boards/Committees – Mayor Cutler may recommend appointments to City boards/committees.
