    3. Ordinance No. 2000-15
    4. An Ordinance Amending the Sales Tax Code to Repeal the Exemption for Sales, Services and Rentals To or By the Federal Government and to Impose the Tax on Certain Sales, Services, and Rentals By the City and Borough of Juneau. (Readoption)

      The current sales tax exemption for governments allows Juneau to tax certain of its own services, but not its own goods. This ordinance amends the exemption to require taxation of several more CBJ goods and services.

      The ordinance also removes the exemptions for sales to or by the federal government. Many of these sales will remain exempt by force of federal law, but this ordinance will make some transactions subject to taxation. Sales by governments are the most likely candidates because the sales tax falls on the private buyer, not the government seller.

      The exemption for other municipalities is left in place in order to maintain Juneau’s role as a regional leader and good neighbor. Sales to CBJ remain exempt because it would be a pointless expense for the City and Borough to tax itself.

      This ordinance amends the code for clarification in several places, most notably by uniform usage of the phrase "retail sales, services, and rentals of real and tangible personal property" in place of several different wordings which gave the false impression of different meanings.

      In order to allow Capital Transit and Eaglecrest to make a more orderly transition to the new rule, the subsections which require them to collect sales tax will be effective at the beginning of the next fiscal year.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

      Assembly Action

    5. Ordinance No. 2000-16
    6. An Ordinance Repealing Chapter 30 of the Business Regulations Code Relating to Pawnbrokers, Secondhand Dealers and Junk Shops. (Readoption)

      CBJ pawnbroker regulations primarily duplicate state regulations. These state licensing and record keeping regulations are enough to provide JPD with the information it needs, so elimination of the CBJ system will save staff and businesses time and money.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

      Public Hearing

      Assembly Action

    7. Ordinance No. 2000-17
    8. An Ordinance Authorizing the Manager to Reconvey Approximately 30 Acres of Municipally-Owned Property Located at 7 Mile Glacier Highway and to Convey Approximately 46 Acres of Land Above Crow Hill in Douglas to the Alaska Mental Health Trust in Exchange for Property Located Near Sunny Point. (Readoption)

      This ordinance is in response to public input regarding the disposal of land in Douglas to the Alaska Mental Health Trust. The Trust had originally selected 134 acres of land as part of a land exchange with the City. However, in response to concerns about the size and development issues with the land involved, the exchange parcel was substantially modified; under the current proposal only 46 acres in Douglas would be conveyed to the Trust.

      Ordinance 2000-17 authorizes the Manager to complete an equal value land exchange with the Alaska Mental Health Trust, initiated three years ago with the adoption of Ordinance 97-23. Ordinance 97-23 established the foundation for the land exchange, prompted by a mutual desire by the CBJ and Trust to relocate the National Guard armory from its downtown site. Its current site is owned by the Trust and has been identified for redevelopment.

      As part of the exchange, the National Guard was given approximately 10 acres of Trust land near 7-Mile Glacier Highway for its new facility and the CBJ acquired an additional 40 adjacent acres, 30 of which were considered suitable for residential development. The 7-Mile land was valued at $900,000. The CBJ has the option of providing equal-value land or paying the Trust in cash.

      The Trust has agreed to accept a reconveyance of approximately 30 acres of the 7-Mile property, considered surplus to the National Guard needs, and valued at $612,000. To make up the difference in value, the Trust has selected approximately 46 acres of CBJ land, above Crow Hill in Douglas.

      At its meeting February 7, 2000, the Assembly referred this matter to the Assembly Lands Committee. The Lands Committee met February 23, 2000 and recommended approval of the modified trade agreement.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

    9. Ordinance No. 99-17 (AB)
    10. An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $323,900 As Additional Funding For The New Police Station. Such Funds Provided By Interest Income. (Readoption)

      This ordinance appropriates $323,900 in interest earnings as additional funding for construction of the new police station. The interest is earned on the unspent temporary sales tax proceeds, which provided funding for the project.

      Interest earnings on sales tax have been planned into the project budget. This is the second such appropriation. The total interest earned on the project as of June 30,1999 was $543,700. A final appropriation from interest earnings will appear on a future agenda.

      The project is nearing completion on time and on budget. JPD moved into the building in mid-February.

      This ordinance was previously adopted as 99-17(Q) on February 7, 2000. Due to an oversight the public notice requirements were not met.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

    12. An Ordinance Transferring To The General Fund $37,600 For Unanticipated Reductions In Employee Liability Charges. Of The Amount Transferred $25,800 Will Be Provided By The Juneau Douglas School District And $11,800 By Bartlett Regional Hospital. (Readoption)

      This Ordinance transfers $25,800 from the School District and $11,800 from Bartlett Regional Hospital to the general fund for reductions in Risk Management's FY00 charges for Employee Liability Coverage.

      During the FY00 budget process, it was determined that the Risk Management charges for Employee Liability coverage to the School District and Bartlett Regional Hospital could be reduced by $25,800 and $11,800. On June 9, 1999, the Assembly Finance Committee, by motion, reduced Risk Management's interdepartmental charge for FY00. The Assembly Finance Committee also went on to recommend the School and Hospital Boards that they consider transferring these unanticipated budgetary savings to the City’s General Fund.

      The School Board endorsed the transfer of $25,800 to the General Fund on June 15, 1999. The Hospital verbally approved the transfer to the General Fund on January 28, 2000. We appreciate the spirit of cooperation these actions indicate.

      Copies of the School Board meeting minutes can be found in your packets.

      This ordinance was previously adopted as 99-17[R] on February 14, 2000. Due to an oversight the public notice requirements were not met.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

    13. Ordinance No. 99-17 (AD)
    14. An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $26,000 For Maintenance Of The Exterior Siding And Interior Painting At Centennial Hall. Such Funds Provided By Centennial Hall Unreserved Fund Balance. (Readoption)

      This ordinance appropriates $26,000 from the Centennial Hall unreserved fund balance for costs associated with the cleaning and re-staining of the exterior siding, and interior painting at Centennial Hall. Currently, the siding is scheduled for replacement in FY02, in the amount of $420,000. However, by implementing a cleaning and resealing program in FY00, the siding replacement project could be delayed until FY05.

      The project would consist of cleaning and sealing, as well as caulking of cracks, window and door openings, and other exterior penetrations, and final staining of the exterior siding. Interior painting of the front offices, kitchen doors, service corridors, and maintenance office would be completed when weather does not allow outside work.

      This work is consistent with routine maintenance work done by CBJ staff. A temporary Laborer position will be created to perform the necessary work. Your packet includes a breakdown of costs estimated for the project, including personnel costs.

      It is recommended that the project be implemented as soon as possible, to take advantage of summer weather with better working conditions to do the exterior work.

      After this ordinance is adopted, Centennial Hall’s unreserved fund balance would be approximately $190,900.

      This ordinance was previously adopted as 99-17(S) on March 20, 2000. Due to an oversight the public notice requirements were not met.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

    15. Ordinance No. 99-17 (AE)
    16. An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $7,260 To Perform A Survey And Publish A Report Of The Historic Buildings In The Casey-Shattuck Neighborhood. Such Funds Provided By The Alaska Department Of Natural Resources. (Readoption)

      This ordinance appropriates a $7,260 grant from the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Office of History and Archaeology (OHA), to conduct a survey of historic buildings in the Casey-Shattuck neighborhood. The project would further document historic resources of the Juneau community. The scope of the work will include documenting the history of the neighborhood’s development, identifying historic resources and surveying the current condition of historic properties within the neighborhood. It is estimated the 75% of the buildings are historically or architecturally significant. The neighborhood is believed to contain the largest concentration of historic houses in the community.

      In 1993 OHA awarded the City a grant to survey the Casey-Shattuck neighborhood and the Assembly decided not to approve the in-kind services match which was proposed. Since 1993 many residents of the neighborhood have indicated a desire that a survey be done. A number of residents have offered to assist with such a survey. Volunteer time on the project will provide the entire match for the grant. Volunteers would provide research, field survey and photographic services for the project. Community Development staff would provide oversight of the project, administration of the grant, and preparation of the final report.

      The Juneau Historic Resources Advisory Committee held a public meeting to discuss the proposed project on October 27, 1999. The Committee recommended that the City submit an application to survey the historic buildings of the Casey-Shattuck neighborhood. The project is consistent with the CBJ Comprehensive Plan and the draft Historic Preservation Plan.

      Total project cost is $12,100. The grant share is $7,260; the local share is $4,840. The project will be completed by March 31, 2001.

      Resolution No. 2009, authorizing the manager to submit an application for the grant, was adopted at the Assembly Meeting of 12/6/99.

      This ordinance was previously adopted as 99-17(T) on March 20, 2000. Due to an oversight the public notice requirements were not met.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

    18. An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $1,650 For Completion Of A Historic Preservation Webpage As Part Of The City And Borough Of Juneau’s Internet World Wide Web Offering. Such Funds Provided By The Alaska Department Of Natural Resources. (Readoption)

      This ordinance appropriates a $1,650 grant from the Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Office of History and Archaeology (OHA), for the second phase of the development of a historic preservation web page for Juneau. Phase I included planning, initial development of features and launching the web page on the Internet.

      Phase II allows people to reach Juneau historic information, currently available in hard copy, electronically and include this information in the body of knowledge about Juneau’s history.

      Total project cost is $2,750. The grant share is $1,650; the local share is $1,100. The project will be completed by March 31, 2001.

      The Juneau Historic Resources Advisory Committee recommends the City submit an application to complete the development of the Historic Preservation Webpage. The project is consistent with the CBJ Comprehensive Plan and the draft Historic Preservation Plan.

      Resolution 2008, authorizing the manager to submit an application for the grant, was adopted at the Assembly Meeting of 12/6/99.

      This ordinance was previously adopted as 99-17(U) on March 20, 2000. Due to an oversight the public notice requirements were not met.

      I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

There is appropriated to the Manager the sum of $83,500 for the following capital projects:

    1. Airport Revolving Capital Reserve Account $43,041
    2. General Aviation and Air Carrier Ramp Design 8,354

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

Public Hearing

Assembly Action

    1. Ordinances for Introduction
    1. Ordinance No. 2000-13

An Ordinance Exempting Dawn Rider-Walsh and John Walsh from Compliance with Certain Sections of the Building Code, the Land Use Code, and the Public Ways and Property Code and Authorizing the Manager to Issue a Permit for an Encroachment of Approximately 60 Square Feet of Property in the Public Right-of-Way of 2nd Street in Douglas for the Purpose of Accommodating an Encroaching Porch Reconstructed and Expanded in 1999 at 1316 2nd Street in Douglas.

This noncode ordinance creates several Building Code and Land Use Code exemptions for the relief of Dawn Rider-Walsh and John Walsh and their house in Douglas. The Walshes recently added a porch and eaves to the house. This construction encroaches on the public right-of-way, extends into setbacks, and violates an order of the Building Official. At its meeting of February 23, 2000, the Lands Committee directed preparation of a noncode ordinance to excuse the Walshes from compliance with these requirements. Your packet includes a memo from the Attorney to the Lands Committee concerning this ordinance indicating this ordinance offers unprecedented exemptions and waivers.

I have reviewed the file on this matter and see no justification for granting the relief requested by the Walshes.

I recommend that this ordinance not be introduced.

    1. Ordinance No. 2000-19
    2. An Ordinance Amending the Election Code to Provide for the Confidentiality of Attorney Assistance on Initiative Petitions, to Provide for the Issuance of Forms by the Election Official, and to Provide for Preparation of the Impartial Summary by the Election Official.

      This ordinance implements the suggestions made during the discussion at your last meeting of the initiative process and Ordinance 2000-10. The changes were not included in Ordinance 2000-10 because they would have exceeded the scope of that ordinance.

      Two of these changes seem uncontroversial: Section 1 of the ordinance provides for the issuance by the election official of forms for use by the public in the initiative process. This change will make the process easier for both the public and the staff. Section 3 of the ordinance provides that the election official will draft the "impartial summary" which appears on the petition booklets. There is probably no way to avoid some disagreement about this summary, but the election official (who works closely with the attorney on these issues) is in a better position than the petitioners to be impartial about the initiative.

      The third, and less routine, change is set out in Section 2. It would increase the confidentiality of the advice provided by the Attorney at the request of the petitioners’ committee. Currently, the Attorney makes an effort to be discreet about the early stages of an initiative, but petitioners are nevertheless reluctant to seek advice from the CBJ Attorney because of a perception that their efforts will be untimely disclosed to a body with which they are likely to be at cross purposes: the Assembly.

      This is understandable, but unfortunate. Petitioners are usually focused on the major elements of the issue which prompts their initiative, and are prone to lose sight of the details that must be included if their legislation is to work smoothly. However, the voters may overlook bad definitions, unworkable time limits, and other rust on the nuts and bolts of the law. If they adopt the initiative anyway, the staff is left with the awkward and possibly illegal task of ignoring or making up parts of the law in order to make it work.

      Early review by the Attorney can help avoid these errors, and an increased measure of confidentiality may help achieve this. Total confidentiality is not practical: the Attorney is accountable to the Assembly and the Assembly is accountable to the people. Some procedure must address this accountability. The ordinance provides that the Assembly may by resolution require that the Attorney divulge the existence and nature of a proposed initiative. This procedure will assure that the early efforts of the petitioner’s committee will be undisturbed unless there is some good reason to disclose them.

      I recommend this ordinance be scheduled for public hearing at the June 5, 2000 Assembly meeting.

    3. Ordinance No. 2000-20
    4. An Ordinance Amending the Litter Code to Define the Offense of Depositing or Maintaining an Abandoned or Junked Vehicle, and Providing a Penalty.

      This ordinance changes the definition of an abandoned vehicle to include vehicles left for a period of 48 hours, instead of 30 days.

      It increases the fine for leaving an abandoned or junked vehicle on public or private property from $100 to $295.00.

      It adds a new offense for failing to notify the Department of Motor Vehicles of a transfer of ownership and provides for a fine of up to $295.00.

      An owner convicted of leaving a vehicle, then, will face a potential fine of $295.00. If the owner suggests that they are not responsible because they have sold the vehicle, but failed to register the change of ownership, then the owner faces an additional infraction and another fine of up to $295.00. Forget to sign, pay a fine!

      I recommend this ordinance be scheduled for public hearing at the June 5, 2000 Assembly meeting.

    5. Ordinance No. 99-17 (AH)
    6. An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $150,000 For Design Of The Food Service Facilities Renovation At The Bartlett Regional Hospital. Such Funds Provided By Bartlett Regional Hospital Retained Earnings.

      This ordinance will appropriate $150,000 of Bartlett Regional Hospital’s (BRH) retained earnings for design of renovations to the food service facilities at BRH. This area of the hospital needs to be renovated for modernization and for its new role in providing food service for St. Ann’s Care Center, once it opens in May, 2001. This appropriation provides funds for the design phase only. A second appropriation for construction funding will follow in late summer, 2000.

      This action was approved by the BRH Board at its meeting of April 25, 2000. After this ordinance is adopted, the balance in BRH’s retained earnings will be $1,799,300.

      I recommend this ordinance be scheduled for public hearing at the June 5, 2000 Assembly meeting.

    7. Ordinance No. 99-17 (AI)

An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $311,403 For Installation Of The Centerline Light Controls At The Juneau International Airport. Such Funds, $301,358, Provided By The Federal Aviation Administration And $10,045, Provided By The Alaska Department Of Transportation And Public Facilities.

This ordinance appropriates $301,358 as an amendment to Federal Aviation Administration grant AIP 21, Runway Rehabilitation and $10,045 in matching funds from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities.

The original grant provided funds for the rehabilitation of the runway at the Juneau International Airport, which included installation of centerline lights. After installation of the centerline lights, it was determined that the lights need to have a control installed so their intensity can be adjusted. This amendment provides funding for the light controls.

In addition, the amendment will fund design costs for the Runway Rehabilitation construction project, which exceeded the design grant. The City has funded the excess design costs with Passenger Facility Charge revenue pending receipt of the FAA grant amendment.

After the FAA and DOTPF grant amendments are received, the Passenger Facility Charge revenue will be transferred back to the Airport Revolving Capital Reserve Account.

I recommend this ordinance be scheduled for public hearing at the June 5, 2000 Assembly meeting.

    1. Resolutions
    1. Resolution No. 2030

A Resolution Authorizing the Manager to Request an Increase to an Existing Loan from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Alaska Clean Water Fund and Designating the Manner of Accepting and Managing the Loan Increase for the Purpose of Installing a Blower at the Mendenhall Wastewater Treatment Plant.

This resolution authorizes the Manager to request an increase of $140,000 in additional loan funds from the State Department of Environmental Conservation, Alaska Clean Water Fund to finance the installation of an additional blower at the Mendenhall Wastewater Treatment Plant. The original loan authorized by Resolution 1962 was to fund the upgrade of the control system and replacement of the sequencing batch reactor decanter system. These improvements are expected to be completed by the end of June 2000.

We recently learned that an additional blower is needed to provide air to the sequencing batch reactors and the sludge management system if the plant is to be used at the full capacity made available by the upgrade. This loan increase will fund the construction, design and inspection for the additional blower.

I recommend this resolution be adopted.

    1. ORDINANCES FOR PUBLIC HEARING
  1. ORDINANCES FOR PUBLIC HEARING
  1. Ordinance No. 2000-10

An Ordinance Amending the Election Code to Provide for Review by the Election Official of Initiative Affidavits. Presented by the Manager.

The ordinance expands the process used by the Election Official to review local voter initiatives. The new process is similar to the one used by the Lieutenant Governor to review state voter initiatives.

Currently, the Election Official’s review is exercised toward the end of the initiative process, when she examines petition booklets for damage or inadequate signatures. This ordinance adds a procedure at the beginning of the process when the petitioner’s committee submits its "affidavit". The affidavit identifies the members of the initiative committee, and sets out the measure to be initiated.

This ordinance would require that the Election Official certify the affidavit before issuing petition booklets. Certification would be denied if the affidavit or measure are in the wrong form or the petitioner’s committee has fewer than 5 members. More significantly, certification would be denied if the measure to be initiated violates certain rules for initiatives which are imposed by the Charter, the Alaska Constitution, or common law. Under these rules, the measure would be denied certification if it:

1. Establishes a budget, fixes a mill levy, or appropriates funds,

2. Dedicates revenue, creates courts, defines the jurisdiction of courts or prescribes their rules, or enacts local or special legislation, or

3. Is not limited to one subject.

It is important to note that these criteria do not involve the merits of the measure. The Election Official is not empowered to reject a measure because she thinks it is unconstitutional, pre-empted by state law, or generally unwise. These kinds of issues must be resolved by a lawsuit after the measure is adopted.

At your last meeting, Mr. Joe Geldhof offered several suggestions for improving the administration of initiatives. The Assembly instructed the Attorney to draft appropriate language for consideration. One of the suggestions – for a time limit on the affidavit certification process – can be implemented quite easily in this ordinance by inserting the words "within 15 days" after "shall" on page 2, line 6. This language does not specify "calendar days" or describe what happens if the election official does not respond to the request for certification. This is consistent with the rest of Title 29.

The other changes are outside the scope of this ordinance, and have been incorporated in a new ordinance, 2000-19, for introduction at this meeting.

Your packet includes a memorandum prepared by the Attorney for Mr. Garrett. The same memo, along with court cases, attorney general opinions, and other backup material is on the web at cbjlaw.com

I recommend that this ordinance be amended as shown in this manager’s report and adopted.

Assembly Action

  1. Ordinance No. 2000-18

An Ordinance Authorizing And Directing The Interim Reorganization Of The Health And Social Services Department. Presented by the Manager

We will soon be changing some of the services provided through programs operated by the Health and Social Services Department (HSS). These service changes could impact HSS programs to the extent that the department should be altered or abolished. The Charter requires that if the Assembly acts to alter or abolish a department, the action must be by ordinance.

It will be several months before we can arrive at any final recommendations for Assembly action. In the interim, we must address the issues in a sensitive and clear manner. This job will be easier if staff, clients, and the public are confident that CBJ administration and Assembly are working together.

There is no legal requirement for an ordinance at this point, and there may never be. However, it is possible that at some point in the process it would be legally prudent to have an ordinance. Legalities aside, an ordinance will be helpful. A noncode ordinance is sufficient right now: we will report back as necessary.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

Assembly Action

  1. Ordinance No. 99-17 (Z)

An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $7,700 As Partial Funding For The Purchase Of Bulletproof Vests. Such Funds Provided By United States Department Of Justice. Presented by the Manager

This ordinance appropriates $7,700 of a $15,700 grant from the United States Department of Justice (USDOJ) for the purchase of bulletproof vests. The remaining $8,000 of the grant will be appropriated to the Juneau Police Department (JPD) through the FY01 budget process. The grant has a match requirement of $15,700. JPD’s FY00 budget and FY01 proposed budget would provide match of $7,700 and $8,000, respectively.

The Bulletproof Vest Partnership (BVP) Grant Act of 1998 purpose is to save lives of law enforcement officers by helping states and units of local government and tribal governments equip their law enforcement officers with armor vests. The program is designed to pay up to fifty percent of the cost of NIJ approved vests contained in a jurisdiction’s application. The grant must be used by December 2002; however, JPD anticipates using the funds by June 2001.

The entire process of obtaining federal funds was completed through an Internet site. A copy of the grant award can be found in your packet.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

Assembly Action

  1. Ordinance No. 99-17 (AA)

An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $547,200 For School District Operations. Such Funds Provided Various State, Federal And Private Grants And Contracts. Presented by the Manager

This ordinance appropriates $547,200 in various State, Federal and Private grants and contracts for School District operations. This is a housekeeping action that will bring the School District’s FY00 budget into alignment with actual revenue received from the State, Federal and Private sources.

The FY00 budget originally projected that revenue from these sources would be $24,769,600; actual revenue will be $25,316,800.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.
