CITIZENS COMMENTS

 

Pat Johnston, concerned citizen, requested that the appointment of “City Council Member” be removed from the Agenda.  She was concerned that the decision for appointing the City Council Member had been made too quickly and that it was done during the busy holidays and there was not adequate advertising done to allow other interested people to apply.  She asked that the decision be put off until the meeting of January 20, 2004 in order to allow time for people to respond to the two applicants and allow others to put their applications in.

APPOINTMENT OF CITY COUNCIL MEMBER

 

Susan Price, City Manager, reviewed staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to consider the appointment from applications received to complete the remaining eleven months of the four-year term of former City Council Member Tere Hancock.

 

The request by Pat Johnston, to hold over appointing the City Council Member for two weeks was discussed and it was mentioned that there had been 2 legal notices advertised in the Red Bluff Daily News as well as additional articles regarding the appointment of a City Council Member.

 

Mayor Flynn felt that there had been adequate notice and that there needs to be a full City Council to operate effectively.

 

Curt Dahl, applicant for the City Council position, addressed the City Council and expressed his appreciation for being considered.  Mr. Dahl is a Tehama County Code Enforcement Officer/Private Investigator, and does not feel that there would be any conflict with this position and the City Council Member position

 

Russ Frey, applicant for the City Council, thanked the City Council for the opportunity to be heard and mentioned that he has served previously and is a long time resident who looks forward to serving again.

 


Pat Johnston, concerned citizen, gave reasons why she did not feel that Russ Frey was an appropriate candidate for the City Council.  She read excerpts from the 1986 Grand Jury records resulting in a lawsuit by Russ Frey against the Grand Jury, for remarks made in the Grand Jury report.  She also mentioned another lawsuit filed by Russ Frey against the paper, Kathleen Rowen, Carol Santino, and Does 1-40 that Pat Johnston belongs to. She explained that the lawsuit was in regards to a 1996 story published in the paper that implied that there had been a cover-up between Russ Frey and the Police.

 

A 5-Minute Recess was taken.

 

Pat Johnston, concerned citizen, also gave reasons why Curt Dahl is not an appropriate candidate for City Council due to his misleading and alleged deliberate lies towards her and her family over a zoning problem next door to her property.  She felt that the lack of cooperation by Curt Dahl was because she was against the recall going on then and therefore against George Robison continuing as Planning Director and that it was payback.

 

Eventually Pat Johnston discovered FEMA Regulation Laws that she believed proved everything that Pat had been saying was correct during the 10 years of harassment by her neighbor over the zoning issues.  At that time she alleged that Curt Dahl came to her and told her that since digging up the FEMA information she could forget ever doing any improvements on her home. During this period of time the Police, County Sheriffs, and Curt Dahl were noticed out near her rural area on a regular basis.  Pat claimed that Curt Dahl was going to testify along with Barbara McIver over the zone issue and the case was eventually dropped on recommendation of the Court.  Pat Johnston feels that it’s time for the City to have some fresh new Council members.

 

The ballots were passed out for the City Council Members to vote and Gloria Shepherd, City Clerk, collected the ballots (attached as part of these minutes) and read the votes aloud.  Russ Frey was unanimously voted to the City Council.  Gloria Shepherd City Clerk, swore him in and he then took his place on the City Council.

 

Thanks were made to Curt Dahl for his application and interest in the City Council position.

 

 

OTHER AGENCY REPRESENTATION

 

Susan Price, City Manager, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to review the current City Councilmember assignments and determine who would assume other agency representation for 2004 left vacant by the resignation of City Councilmember Hancock.

 

Councilmember Russ Frey was asked to assume the vacant assignments for other commissions and agencies for 2004.

 

Councilmember Avilla asked to be appointed as the lead person on the Fish Passage Advisory Committee, and Russ Frey would become the alternate.

 

M/S/C Stevens, Avilla to approve appointing Russ Frey to the open assignments and other agency representation for 2004 with the amendment to have Councilmember Avilla as the lead person on the Fish Passage Advisory Committee and Russ Frey as the alternate.

 

AYES:            Councilmembers:            Avilla, Flynn, Houghton, Frey and Stevens

NOES:                                                None               

ABSENT OR NOT VOTING:             None

 

 

2003/2004 FINAL COMMUNITY PROMOTION BUDGET REDUCTION AND ALLOCATION RECOMMENDATIONS

 

Susan Price, City Manager, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to appoint two City Councilmembers to meet with staff prior to meeting with the Chamber of Commerce and any other organizations receiving Community Promotion funding from the City to discuss the 2003/2004 Final Community Promotion Budget reduction of $24,000 and develop recommendations for the allocation of Community Promotion Budget funds to community organizations in the City.

REDEVELOPMENT FEASIBILITY STUDY SELECTION OF CONSULTANT

 

Susan Price, City Manager, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to approve the selection of Quad Knopf of Roseville to complete the Redevelopment Feasibility Study and authorize the City Manager to execute a Professional Services Agreement with the firm.

 

Tom Buford addressed the City Council about looking forward to seeing what kinds of redevelopment can be done in the community.

RESOLUTION NO. 3-2004, A RESOLUTION OF INTENTION TO LEVY A FISCAL YEAR ASSESSMENT FOR THE DOWNTOWN RED BLUFF PARKING AND BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT AREA

 

Susan Price, City Manager, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to consider the collection of a $10 administrative processing fee per assessment to cover staff time, envelopes, postage and materials, adopt the Resolution of Intention to levy an assessment and set a public hearing for January 20, 2004.

 

The Chamber of Commerce and Historic Red Bluff Association (HRBA) proposals were addressed by Richard Crabtree, City Attorney.  The existing Ordinance requires that the City be the one to collect the fees to appropriately recover its administrative costs.  State law is not as clear in terms of whom can collect the fee and doesn’t prohibit an outside agency from collecting the fee. The opinion is that this is a municipal function best left to the City and is not delegable to a private organization. The assessment is authorized by state statute and properly collected by the City.

 

The City Council will hold a future Public Hearing and the Chamber and HRBA can bring their information forward at that time for discussion.

 

M/S/C Avilla, Houghton to consider the collection of a $10 administrative processing fee per assessment to cover staff time, envelopes, postage and materials, adopt the Resolution of Intention to levy an assessment and set a public hearing for January 20, 2004.

 

AYES:            Councilmembers:            Avilla, Flynn, Frey, Houghton and Stevens

NOES:                                                None               

ABSENT OR NOT VOTING:             None

 

 

GASB 34 VALUATION PROJECT

 

Margaret Van Warmerdam, Financial Director, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to:

 

1.      That the City Council hear the presentation by MuniFinancial / Wildan and comment on the two methods.

Scott Koppel, MuniFinancial, explained the two proposals available for the financial reports.

 

The first standard method includes the depreciated value that is an amount included on the financial statements.

 

The second modified method puts the original costs in place and requires that a policy of condition level be maintained on infrastructure items at condition levels and show what level you are keeping it at.

The utmost important thing to consider is life safety according to Michael Damon, Fire Chief.

 

Fred Wildes spoke on behalf of Frank Disalvo, expressing the support of the restoration of the building.  The qualifications of what defines a historical building were discussed and whether this building would be eligible for this. 

 

Frank Disalvo spoke to the City Council about trying to preserve the Main Street downtown area and requested the City Council help to support them in this.

 

Mayor Flynn Closed the Public Hearing

 

Concerns about the integrity of the structure were mentioned with the installing of the sprinkler system. 

 

To preserve the Historical downtown area there is a need to begin by installing sprinkler systems in an effort to prevent future fires.

 

The water line is not readily available to this property and not factored in to the cost and it will be a major project to put a water line in place that would accommodate the needs.

4.      Make the finding that revised Mitigation Measures No. 33 and 48, compared to the original Mitigation Measures, are equivalent or more effective in mitigating or avoiding potential significant effects and that in themselves will not cause any potentially significant effects on the environment.

 

Mayor Flynn opened the Public Hearing.

 

Everd McCain, Representative of McCain Associates, explained that this was an attempt to carry out the intent of the Council to make sure there is adequate parking available.  Some of the conditions were written without the knowledge that some of the streets were the standard type of streets that would be more effective with separate driveways.

 

Mayor Flynn closed the Public Hearing.

1.      Revise Condition No. 33 to state: “Shared driveways, perfected with appropriate easements, shall be provided as shown on the Tentative Map and for Lots 62 and 63.  Separate driveways may be developed on those lots if four off-street parking spaces are provided as specified in Mitigation Measure No. 48.

STATE TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT PLAN (STIP); STATUS AND ISSUES

 

Gary Antone, Public Works Director, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to discuss information presented.

 

The California Transportation Commission (CTC) has changed the method of distributing Transportation Enforcement (TE) Funds.  As the State continues to utilize local street and road funds for other purposes, the City Council is advised to discuss the other possible options for funding street improvement projects, such as local revenue enhancement.

 

Regional Public Transportation methods to allocate funding has had an effect on what kind of funds are left to be distributed to the transportation and the street repair funding.  The potential may be to go into the negative under the current method of allocations.

 

The issue of who is the claimant and who is the regional transportation commission will be reviewed by the City Attorney and brought to the Transportation Commission for discussion.

CHRISTMAS EVE AND NEW YEAR’S EVE HALF DAY (4 HOUR) HOLIDAY MOU POLICIES

 

Tessa Pritchard, Human Resource Director, reviewed the staff report and gave staff’s recommendation to:

 

1.                  Remove the provision that the Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve 4-hour holidays are only observed when Christmas Day or New Year’s Day falls on a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, or Saturday.  Add the language “Should Christmas Day fall on a Saturday, the Christmas Eve holiday (4 hours) will be observed on the previous Thursday.  Should Christmas Day fall on a Sunday or Monday, the Christmas Eve Holiday will be observed on the previous Friday.”  And “Should New Year’s Day fall on a Saturday, the New Years Eve holiday (4 hours) will be observed on the previous Thursday.  Should New Year’s Day fall on a Sunday or Monday, the New Year’s Eve Holiday will be observed on the previous Friday.”  This change will require union approval of all bargaining units.

 

There is no cost to either the Miscellaneous or Mid Management Unit in making this change.  There is also no cost to the Police Unit, as the mandatory use rate would increase in an equal amount to the composite leave rate, thus the time would be taken off.  However, there may be a negligible amount if the time is not taken off and employee cashes out composite leave with the “Annual over 1000 Hour Cash Out”.  The approximate cost that will be incurred in the Fire Unit (which will occur approximately twice every seven years) is $3,762.

 

2.              Remove the word “Saturday” from the existing provision.  This change will require union approval of all bargaining units.

 

3.              Leave the policy as written.

 

M/S/C Avilla, Stevens to accept item #1.
