Subject:   City Manager’s Summary of July 19, 2016 Council Meetings
Date:        July 15, 2016

5:30    Joint City Council and Planning Commission Work Session – The City Council will meet with the Planning Commission for a joint work session to discuss the Planning Commission’s work and recommendations regarding proposed amendments to the South Main Street Corridor (SMSC) Public Space Plan. The Planning Commission has studied and worked on this matter for the past six months and adopted its final recommendations by motion approved on July 13, 2016 (with 5-2 split vote).  The Planning Commission has requested the opportunity to meet with the City Council to present their conclusions and recommendations regarding proposed amendments to the SMSC Public Space Plan.  Numerous attachments are provided for this matter, including staff reports, minutes, public comments, and other background materials.  As time permits, the Planning Commission will also provide the City Council with information regarding the Planning Commission’s vote regarding proposed amendments to the Zoning Code on sensitive and constrained lands for purposes of calculating density for residential developments.  The Planning Commission motion to approve the proposed amendments failed by a 2-3 vote and no alternative motion was made.  Dinner for the Planning Commission, City Council and Staff will be available beginning about 5:15 p.m.

7:00    Regular City Council Meeting

E.1.    Minutes Review -- The minutes to be approved for the June 21, 2016 work session and regular meeting are available online via NovusAgenda.

E.2.    Summary Action Calendar – There are a number of summary action items for approval by the City Council.
a.    Stormwater Interlocal Agreement – The City has previously entered into an interlocal agreement with Davis County and other Davis County cities to cooperate in providing services,
education and training materials as required under the City’s Utah Pollution Discharge Elimination System (UPDES) General Permit.  The member entities find it is more
economical and efficient to cooperation and share the cost of such services and materials required by federal and state law.  The interlocal agreement runs concurrent with the
UPDES General Permit (with a 5-year term) and is recommended for renewal with some minor amendments. The proposed revisions and background information are provided on
b.    Buttars Deferral Agreement – The Buttars are remodeling their home located at approximately 150 North 600 East and they would like to defer the installation of sidewalk
improvements on the frontage of their property.  City Ordinances allow for the deferral of certain public improvements, subject to compliance with ordinance criteria and City
Council approval.  The proposed agreement and background information are provided on NovusAgenda.
c.    Culinary Water Rate Revisions – The new culinary water rates approved by the City Council on June 21, 2016, contained an error in the original amount charged per thousand
gallons (for 0-5,000 gallons).  The current rate was listed as $0.93 and should have been $0.86.  Thus, the amounts shown for the first tier of water rates was incorrect and must be
revised to reflect the correct figures.  The changes proposed in Resolution No. 2016-22 will actually decrease the water rates for the first tier; i.e. for the rate per thousand gallons for
0-5,000 gallons.  More details are provided on NovusAgenda.
d.    Purchase of Truck and Snowplow for Parks Department – The Parks Director recommends purchasing a new F550 Ford truck from Ken Garff Ford in the amount of $34,502.10 and
a snowplow from United Sales and Service in the amount of $6,508.60.  Purchase of these items is included in the Parks Budget for FY 2017 (in the budgeted amount of $48,000).
The prices for the truck and snowplow are based on State contract prices.

E.3.    Public Hearing – Urban Deer Control Amendments – Staff recommends amendments to the City’s current Urban Deer Control Plan to include the lethal reduction of urban deer populations by archery.  The City’s plan currently includes lethal reduction by trapping and euthanizing or by relocation.  The addition of archery as a lethal method of reduction will assist in the removal of resident deer between August 1 and December 31 each year.  More information regarding the proposed amendments is provided on NovusAgenda.

E.4.    Public Hearing – General Plan Amendments - Bicycle Paths and Trails Master Plan Map – The Trails Committee and Planning Commission recommend amendments to Section 12-450-3 of the General Plan to update language regarding bicycle and non-motorized pathways within the City and amendments to Section 12-460-2 of the General Plan to amend and update the Centerville Trails Master Plan Map.  Staff has a few suggested changes to the proposed language of the updates to Section 12-450-3.  More information is provided on NovusAgenda.

E.5.    Public Hearing – Zoning Code Amendments – Constrained Lands – The Council directed Staff to prepare proposed amendments to the Zoning Code to address how sensitive or constrained lands are considered when calculating density for residential development.  Proposed amendments were prepared and presented to the Planning Commission for review and consideration.  At the Planning Commission meeting on June 22, 2016, a motion to approve the proposed amendments failed by a vote of 2-3.  There was no additional motion.  Therefore, this matter comes to the Council without a specific Planning Commission recommendation.

E.6.    Accessory Building Setbacks and Flag Lot Ordinance Amendments – This matter is a continuation of the discussion that occurred in an earlier City Council meeting.  The Council requested that these matters be placed on the agenda in July for further discussion.  The materials and minutes from the previous Council meetings regarding these matters are attached to NovusAgenda.  The Council should discuss these matters and provide any direction to Staff for follow up.

E.7.    Award Bids for Frontage Road Culvert Projects – The City Engineer recommends the bid award to Kapp Construction in the amount of $361,704.40 for labor and to Oldcastle Precast in the amount of $16,828 (plus $1,194.70 tax) for materials for the Frontage Road Culverts Project.  The project will include the replacement of nine culverts and the abandonment and removal of two other culverts under the Frontage Road between Parrish Lane and Lund Lane.

E.8.    Waiver of Protest Agreement for Carlsons – Councilmembers Mecham and Ivie requested this matter be added to the agenda for discussion and consideration by the Council.  The issue involves whether the Carlsons should be required to install public improvements, including sidewalk, in conjunction with development of their lot with a single-family home or if they should be granted a waiver of protest by agreement pursuant to CZC 12.55.200.  Staff has not had an opportunity to review this matter or prepare a Staff Report.  If time permits, additional information or Staff input will be added to this agenda item.

E.9.    Mayor’s Report – Mayor Cutler will report on several matters identified under this heading on the agenda.

E.10.    City Council Liaison Report – Councilmember Tami Fillmore represents the City on the South Davis Recreation District Board and is the Council’s liaison to the Parks and Recreation Committee.  Councilmember Fillmore will report on the activities/issues of these organizations.

E.11.    City Manager’s Report – Several topics are identified under this heading on the agenda.

E.12.    Miscellaneous Business – No topics are listed under this agenda item.

E.13.    Closed Meeting, if necessary – The Council may adjourn into a closed meeting to conduct the annual performance review of the City Manager (as time permits).
