  3. CONSENT AGENDA

The Consent Agenda includes routine items of business, which may not require separate discussion. When the Mayor calls for public comment on the Consent Agenda, you may raise your hand and the Mayor will recognize you asking which item(s) you wish to have removed from the Consent Agenda for separate discussion and action. Following the removal of any item from the Consent Agenda, the Assembly votes on the remaining items in one motion. (Ordinances for introduction generally may not be removed from the Consent Agenda.)

All items that are removed from the Consent Agenda will follow the format of: Administrative or Committee Report, Public Hearing/Participation and Assembly Action.

    1. Ordinances for Introduction
    1. Ordinance No. 99-17 (W)
    2. An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $100,000 For An Acoustic Study Of Neighborhoods Affected By Flightseeing Noise. Such Funds Provided By The General Fund Unappropriated Fund Balance.

      This ordinance appropriates $100,000 in FY00 from the General Fund Unappropriated Fund Balance for an acoustic study. to establish baseline noise levels in neighborhoods affected by flightseeing noise.The project will also predict expected future noise levels in the absence of mitigating actions, and explain the noise levels in terms of impacts on health and well-being. This work is appropriately funded by the cruise ship passenger fee, but until all expenditures for the fee are established, the general fund is listed as the source. It is appropriate for the cruise ship passenger fee fund to reimburse the general fund for this work.

      After this appropriation, the General Fund Unappropriated Fund Balance will be $19,000.

      I recommend this ordinance be scheduled for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

    3. Ordinance No. 99-17 (X)

An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $100,000 As Additional Funding For The Riverbend Elementary School. Such Funds Provided By Interest Income Earned From Unspent Project Funding.

This ordinance appropriates $100,000 in interest earnings from unexpended project bond and grant funds as additional funding for the Riverbend Elementary School construction project. These funds will be used to expand the paved parking lot, fencing, drainage and other safety improvements to the playground, and provide funds for staff to continue to work with consultants to resolve roof problems.

To date, total interest earned for the project is $386,900. Additional interest will be earned in FY00.

I recommend this ordinance be scheduled for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

    1. Resolutions
    1. Resolution No. 2027

A Resolution to the State of Alaska, Department of Transportation and Public Facilities Expressing Continued Support for the Douglas Highway Safety Improvement Project, Cordova Street to Douglas.

This resolution reiterates the Assembly’s support for highway safety improvements along the Douglas Highway from Cordova Street to downtown Douglas. The resolution encourages the State Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to move this project up its priority list for construction. A description of the project from the Project Nomination Package is in the packet.

    1. Resolution No. 2028

A Resolution Authorizing the Manager to Amend the Existing Lease of Land with St. Ann’s Care Center, Inc., to Add an Additional 4,100 Square Feet and to Execute a No-Build Easement.

This resolution authorizes the manager to grant an easement and expand an existing lease to St. Ann's Care Center, Inc. to enable construction of its nursing facility on City land adjacent to Bartlett Regional Hospital. A modification of St. Ann's program goals resulted in a reconfiguration of the building footprint, part of which falls outside its existing lease site. St. Ann's is requesting a modification in the land lease and issuance of a no-build easement to accommodate the new building plans and meet building code requirements.

The Assembly Lands Committee recommended approval of the easement and amendment of the land lease at its meeting March 22, 2000.

I recommend approval of this resolution.

This year, the Planning and Policy Committee worked with Juneau air tour operators to build upon their efforts in previous years and develop new flightseeing guidelines. Operators have identified changes in routes and altitudes and voluntary "low use zones", and have increased their commitment to pilot training and coordination among themselves.

The Tourism Advisory Committee modified or added measures with the intent to further improve traffic flow, particularly in the downtown and residential areas, and improve coordination and courtesy on hiking and biking trails.

The Planning and Policy Committee has approved the flightseeing voluntary guidelines and reviewed the program guidelines approved by the Tourism Advisory Committee. The Committee submits the complete 2000 Voluntary Compliance Program to the Assembly for approval.
