VII. 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.

A. Ordinances for Introduction:

1. Ordinance No. 98-13

An Ordinance Authorizing the Manager to Negotiate and Execute an Extension of a Lease of Approximately 0.36 Acres Within Tract A, Alaska Tidelands Survey No. 556 to General Communication Corporation for a Communication Earth Station Located at the Rock Dump. Presented by the Manager.

General Communication Corporation (GCI) has applied for an extension of an existing lease of CBJ land at the Rock Dump. GCI plans on expanding the existing facility and adding additional electronic equipment to serve the Juneau telephone market.

The lease was entered into March 1, 1983. The term was for 25 years with only 10 years remaining. Because of the substantial investment which GCI intends to make, they request to add three additional five-year terms to the existing lease with maximum lease term expiring February 28, 2023.

The lease area consists of 0.36 acres located between Thane Road and the Juneau-Douglas Sewage Treatment Plant. A small stream separates the two facilities. A portion of the GCI facility is on land owned by AJT Mining Properties, Inc.

A departmental review by CBJ Departments prompts no objections to the extension of the lease term. There have been no problems with the lease or use of the site since 1983 when the lease began. The Lands Committee at its meeting of April 8, 1998, recommended approval of the lease extension. The Planning Commission will review the lease at its meeting of April 28, 1998.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

2. Ordinance No. 98-14

An Ordinance Amending the Traffic Code to Prohibit Operation of Skateboards in Marine Park, and Amending the Schedule of Fines to Increase the Amount of the Penalty for Violation of Ordinances Applicable to Such Devices Generally. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance was prepared in response to Assembly direction at the meeting of March 16. It addresses the concerns expressed in a March 12 letter from Don Habeger to Assemblymember MacKinnon. In the letter, Mr. Habeger, writing on behalf of the Cruise Lines Agencies of Alaska, noted that Marine Park is a dangerous place to be skateboarding, and completion of the skateboard facility in Jackie Renninger Park has provided a safe and fun alternative. The cruise line agencies asked that Marine Park be closed to skateboarding.

The Committee of the Whole reviewed the draft ordinance at its meeting of March 23, and directed that certain changes be accomplished to allow in-line skating through Marine Park, and to protect the Fisherman's Memorial.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

3. Ordinance No. 97-17 (AV)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $203,438 for the North Terminal Access Rehabilitation And Acquisition of Security Access Control System. Such Funds, $196,875, Provided by the Federal Aviation Administration and $6,563, by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance appropriates a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration and matching grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to rehabilitate the North Terminal access and to acquire a security access control system. The North Terminal access rehabilitation is for design and construction of the access to the north portion of the terminal. This includes the canopy and sidewalk in front of the original portion of the airport terminal dating from the 1950's.

FAA requires that security access control systems meet a certain standard. The airportís current access control system is marginal for meeting the standard. The grant will purchase a system that complies with FAA requirements.

Attached for your reference is the application for federal funding including a program narrative. The grant should be fully executed by the time this ordinance is scheduled for public hearing.

The Airport Board approved these projects as part of the annual CIP review process in September, 1997.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

4. Ordinance No. 97-17 (AW)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $19,000 for Grants to Offset Water and Wastewater Charges for the Aware Shelter, the Glory Hole, and the Emergency Housing Unit at St. Vincent De Paul. Such Funds, $5,500, Provided by the Water Fund Retained Earnings and $13,500 Provided by the Sewer Fund Retained Earnings. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance appropriates Water and Sewer Fund retained earnings for grants of offset water and wastewater charges for non-profit emergency shelter providers. The CBJ is free to set water rates at whatever it deems appropriate, but Federal law prohibits setting wastewater rates less than the true costs of service. To provide some relief to these customers, the City can establish a grant program.

Non-profit organizations benefitting from the grant program will be the AWARE Shelter, the Glory Hole, and the emergency housing unit at St. Vincent de Paul.

After this ordinance is adopted, the Water fund retained earnings will be $2,044,255 and the Sewer Fund retained earnings will be $1,841,184.

This action was approved by the Assembly Finance Committee on March 18, 1998.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

5. Ordinance No. 97-17 (AX)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $3,900,000 for the Purchase of Land Located at Lena Point. Such Funds, $1,160,000, Provided by the U. S. Department of Agriculture Southeast Alaska Economic Relief Funds (SAEF), $170,000 from Interest Earned on the SAEF Funds and $2,570,000 from the Sales Tax Budget Reserve. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance appropriates Southeast Alaska Economic Relief Funds (SAEF) and cumulative interest earned on those funds, and Sales Tax Budget Reserve funds to fund the purchase 22.59 acres of land at Lena Point. This is the proposed site where the consolidated National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/National Marine Fisheries Service (NOAA/NMFS) facility will to be constructed.

The Sales Tax Budget Reserve will be partially repaid by the $1,030,000 in SAEF funds received in October, 1998, and accumulated interest earned on those funds at the time the purchase option is exercised. The purchase option allows the CBJ to purchase the property on or before December 31, 1999.

Negotiations are still underway for the Land Exchange Agreement between the CBJ and NOAA. The Agreement should be final by the May 4, 1998 Assembly meeting; at that time a Resolution will be introduced seeking Assembly approval of the Agreement.

These funds will be used only in the event that NOAA receives the funding to construct the new NOAA/NMFS Consolidated Facility at Lena Point.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular meeting.

6. Ordinance No. 98-17

An Ordinance Appropriating Money Out of The Treasury For FY99 City And Borough Operations. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance introduces the $100,620,200 FY99 Operating Budget for the City and Borough of Juneau as submitted by the City Manager. The difference between the $149,756,400 ordinance and the $100,620,200 contained in the FY99 budget document represents budget transfers between funds. It is necessary to appropriate these transfers in order to move them between funds, but they are not counted twice in the budget.

This ordinance is referred to the Assembly Finance Committee for review. Assembly Finance Committee budget revisions will be integrated into the ordinance prior to adoption. The Charter requires the Manager to submit the City and Borough budget to the Assembly by April 5 and to have one public hearing in April, which will be by special meeting on April 29. The Charter also requires the Assembly to adopt a budget by ordinance no later than June 15.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for a public hearing on April 29 and referred to the Assembly Finance Committee for review.

7. Ordinance No. 98-18

An Ordinance Appropriating Money Out of The Treasury For FY99 School District Operations. Presented by the Manager.

This ordinance appropriates the $46,083,900 FY99 Operating Budget for the City and Borough of Juneau School District. The Charter requires the Assembly to take action on the School Districtís budget within 30 days of receipt. If the Assembly does not, within 30 days, furnish the School Board with a statement of the minimum sum to be made available, the amount requested in the budget is automatically approved. The Charter also requires the Assembly to have one public hearing in April which will be by special meeting on April 29 and adopt a budget by ordinance no later than May 31.

I recommend that this ordinance be introduced and set for a public hearing on April 29 and referred to the Assembly Finance Committee for review.

B. Resolutions:

1. Resolution No.1924

A Resolution Authorizing the Manager to Negotiate and Enter into a Lease of Land to the St. Nicholas Orthodox Church. Presented by the Manager.

This resolution authorizes the issuance of a lease of a fraction of Lot 2, Block 24, Townsite of Juneau, to St. Nicholas Orthodox Church for purposes of providing an exclusive parking space for the benefit of the Church. An existing pocket park is also located on the lease site. The park will continue to be available for use and enjoyment by the public. The Church will accomplish specified park maintenance tasks in exchange for exclusive use of the parking space.

The CBJ purchased this lot in the mid-eighties recognizing its long association with the historic Church and its scenic value as an undeveloped parcel adjacent to the Church. The parking-in-exchange-for-park maintenance arrangement has been occurring through issuance of one-year Temporary Permits. The lease will solidify that arrangement in a more formal manner and allow for a longer use period. A five year lease is proposed with two five-year renewals.

The Lands Committee reviewed the proposal at its February 25, 1998 meeting and recommended the Assembly approve the lease.

I recommend that this resolution be adopted.

2. Resolution No.1926

A Resolution Authorizing the Manager to Negotiate and Enter into a Lease of 0.41 Acres of Land to the Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation for Patient Family Housing. Presented by the Manager.

The Bartlett Regional Hospital Foundation has applied for a lease of 0.41 acres of CBJ land adjacent to the Bartlett Hospital. The purpose of the lease is to allow the construction of an eight unit short stay patient family housing facility (Bartlett House). This housing is needed to serve the needs of patients and families from outlying communities as the hospital is becoming more of a regional medical care facility.

The land on which the Bartlett House will be situated is managed by Bartlett Hospital. The Bartlett Hospital Board of Directors has adopted a resolution which supports the project.The lease will be for a term of thirty-five years at no cost.

The Planning Commission and Lands Committee have reviewed the proposal and have recommended the Assembly approve the lease.

I recommend that this resolution be adopted.

3. Resolution No. 1927

A Resolution Authorizing the Manager to Accept the Donation of 14 Acres of Land at Pearl Harbor from Ms. Caroline Jensen for Use as an Arboretum, and Thanking Ms. Jensen for Her Generosity. Presented by the Manager.

This resolution authorizes the Manager to accept the donation of land at Pearl Harbor for use as a public arboretum.

On September 30, 1993, the City and Borough of Juneau and Caroline Jensen entered into an agreement creating a revokable trust for the donation of Mrs. Jensenís home and property located at Pearl Harbor, near the Shrine of St. Therese. The agreement outlined the concept of the property donation and its use for an arboretum. However, the agreement was nonbinding. Mrs Jensen was not required to make the donation; the CBJ was not required to accept it. Mrs. Jensen intends to make her donation at this time subject to certain terms and conditions.

The Jensen property consists of 14 acres of land on Pearl Harbor with a unique southern exposure which creates its own microclimate. Mrs. Jensen has developed an exceptionally beautiful array of gardens and trees on the property which would become the core of an arboretum. Uses envisioned for the arboretum include nature walks, hiking trails, public recreation, botanical research, as well as a visitor center. Mrs. Jensen will provide a significant endowment of about $450,000 which will be used to operate the arboretum. The arboretum is intended to be self-sustaining.

Mrs. Jensen is willing to make an irrevocable donation of the property and the support fund at this time provided that she is allowed to remain on the property until she dies or can no longer remain on the property because of health reasons. She is asking the CBJ to cover the costs of an appraisal of the property (estimated at $10,000), pay the attorney costs for preparing the irrevocable trust agreement (estimated at $2,000), and pay for property taxes starting in 1999. The property taxes should be significantly lower because Mrs. Jensen will be placing a conservation easement on the property which will ensure its use as a public arboretum.

The money needed for the appraisal and attorney fees can be paid for out of the existing Lands Fund FY 98 budget. The taxes would be subject to yearly appropriations starting in 1999 until the CBJ takes possession of the property.

The Lands Committee, at its meeting of April 8, 1998, recommended the Assembly accept the donation of the Jensen property and the endowment fund.

I want to thank Caroline Jensen for her generosity and community spirit in making this extraordinary property available to the public.

I recommend that this resolution be adopted.

CBJ 20.40.040 requires notice of the public hearing be provided to all persons holding certificates of public convenience and necessity. Such notice was accomplished by sending letters to certificate holders and publishing in the Juneau Empire's "Your Municipality" ad. The holders of certificates may provide written comments or testify before the Assembly regarding support or opposition to the certificate issuance.

CBJ 20.40.050 states that after holding a public hearing, the Assembly must determine that the applicant "is fit, willing, and able to perform such public transportation and to conform to the provisions" of the code. In making findings, the Assembly "shall take into consideration the character, experience and responsibility of the applicant, and the public health, safety and welfare."

CBJ 20.40.060 requires city tax review. The Finance Department has reviewed the applications and confirms that applicants are current in paying city taxes.

I recommend that Goldbelt, Inc., d/b/a, Alaska Native Tours, Inc., and Erlinda A. & Jose S. Ferrer, d/b/a, Erlinda's Gift Shoppe, be granted a For-Hire Vehicle Certificates of Public Convenience and Necessity to operate as provided on the applications.

VIII. ORDINANCES FOR PUBLIC HEARING:

1. Ordinance No. 98-15

An Ordinance of the Assembly of the City and Borough of Juneau, Alaska, Providing for the Issuance and Sale of General Obligation Technology Bonds of the City and Borough in the Aggregate Principal Amount of $3,383,000 for the Purpose of Financing Certain School Technology Capital Improvements Pursuant to an Election Authorizing the Same; Providing the Date, Form, Terms and Maturities of the Bonds to be Issued and for Unlimited Tax Levies to Pay the Principal Thereof and Interest Thereon; Appointing a Registrar and Paying Agent for Such Bonds; Authorizing a Preliminary Official Statement; Undertaking to Provide Ongoing Disclosure and Approving the Sale of Such Bonds. Presented by the Manager.

Administrative or Staff Report

This ordinance will authorize the issuance of the remaining $3,383,000 in unissued school technology capital improvement bonds. The voters approved the issuance of $3.91 million in 10 year general obligation bonds in October 1996 for the acquisition and installation of computers, components and related technological upgrades, educational software, networking equipment and electrical upgrades. The Finance Department issued $527,000 of this authorization as over-the-counter (mini) bonds in July 1997. The School District anticipated their funding needs for this project would be spread over a three year period. Issuance of the bonds, at this time, will be appropriate for the actual to date and projected cash flows for this project.

We are anticipating closing this debt transaction in late June or early July 1998. The first debt service payment on this portion of the bonds will be January 1999, with future payments being due on July and January there after until paid. We are anticipating that this issue will add $95,000 in debt service in FY99 and $445,000 annually there after until paid. Total annual debt service for this authorization, including the over-the-counter portion of this votersí authorization, is anticipated to be $505,000 annually. The ballot proposition language included a debt service estimate of $530,000 in annual debt service for the whole authorization. The impact to home ownersí for the total issue will be approximately 0.23 mills or about $23.00 per $100,000 in assessed value.

I recommend that this ordinance be adopted.

3. Ordinance No. 97-17 (AU)

An Ordinance Appropriating to the Manager the Sum of $67,318 as Partial Funding for the Juneau Transportation Assessment Report. Such Funds Provided by the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities. Presented by the Manager.

Administrative or Staff Report

This ordinance appropriates a $67,318 grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities for a Juneau Transportation Assessment Report which is the first part of a cooperative CBJ/DOTPF areawide transportation study for the Juneau area. The plan will also analyze the downtown Juneau parking problem. These grant funds are to pay the costs for a staff project manager (60% of salary for six months) for the first phase of the two year project, and also to hire a consultant to write the report.

The CBJ has appropriated funding for two related capital improvement projects, $170,000 for the Juneau Areawide Transportation Plan and $120,000 for the Juneau Downtown Parking Plan. The $290,000 of funding previously appropriated for these two projects exceeds the grantís local matching requirement of $6,682. A copy of the grant agreement which provides detailed information about the scope of the project is attached for your review.

This grant has been reviewed and approved by the Public Works and Facilities committee at its February 11, 1998 meeting.

I recommend that this ordinance be adopted.

IX. UNFINISHED BUSINESS:

X. NEW BUSINESS:

1. Howard Hayesí Appeal of Planning Commission Approval of Application for Allowable Use Permit (USE98-00006)

At its regular meeting on March 10, 1998, the Planning Commission approved an application by Rod Whitehead for an allowable use permit (USE98-00006) for the development of a facility for the manufacture of modular housing units. On March 31, 1998, Howard Hayes appealed the Commissionís decision to the Assembly.

The Notice of Appeal and the Notice of Decision on USE98-00006 are in your packet.

The Assembly is the appeal agency for this appeal, and its actions throughout the appeal process are governed by CBJ 01.50, the Appellate Code. The Code requires that upon receiving an appeal, the Assembly, must first decide whether to accept or reject it. The standards applicable to this decision are set out at CBJ 01.50.030(e):

(e) Action by Appeal Agency Upon Receipt of a Notice of Appeal.

(1) Within thirty days of receipt of a notice of appeal by the appeal agency, the appeal agency shall notify the appellant of the acceptance or rejection of the appeal and, if rejected, the reasons for the rejection.

(2) The notice of appeal shall be liberally construed in order to preserve the rights of the appellant. The appeal agency may reject the appeal for failure to comply with these rules or if the notice of appeal does not state grounds upon which any of the relief requested may be granted.

Howard Hayes, Rod Whitehead, the Community Development Department, and the Planning Commission have been advised that this matter is before the Assembly. In general, the Department and the Commission, have no objection to acceptance of the appeal, although they reserve the right to object to argument by the Appellant on some of the issues included in the notice of appeal.

Because this case is substantially similar to other Hayes cases recently decided by the Assembly, the parties are working on a stipulation which, if approved by the Assembly, would allow the matter to proceed directly to superior court without the necessity of revisiting all the issues at the Assembly. That stipulation is not yet in hand, so for present purposes, the following procedural issues should be decided:

1. Will the Assembly accept the appeal?

2. Will the Assembly hear the appeal itself or assign to a hearing officer?

3. If the Assembly hears the appeal itself, will the Mayor preside, or will he designate a member as presiding officer?

This matter is before the Assembly sitting in its quasi-judicial capacity. Accordingly, members should avoid discussing the case outside the hearing process. With respect to this issue, the Appellate Code provides as follows:

CBJ 01.50.230 IMPARTIALITY. The functions of hearing officers and those appeal agency members participating in decisions shall be conducted in an impartial manner with due regard for the rights of all parties and the facts and the law, and consistent with the orderly and prompt dispatch of proceedings. Hearing officers and appeal agency members, except to the extent required for the disposition of ex parte matters authorized by law, shall not engage in interviews concerning the appeal with, or receive evidence or argument on the appeal from, a party, directly or indirectly, except upon opportunity for all other parties to be present. Copies of all communications with a hearing officer or appeal agency member concerning the appeal shall be served upon all parties.

Because this is an appeal, I have no recommendation on whether or how the Assembly should hear the appeal. After the Assembly has made its decisions on these issues, the Clerk will contact the parties and the presiding or hearing officer to notify them of the Assemblyís decision and to arrange for a pre-hearing conference or other proceedings.

XI. ADMINISTRATIVE REPORTS ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS:

A. Manager's Report - Action Items:

B. Managerís Report - Information Items:

1. Areawide Transportation Plan

During the February 11, 1998, meeting of the Public Works and Facilities Committee meeting it was determined to accept a $67,318 grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities for the preparation of an areawide transportation plan. These funds will be used in conjunction with CBJ capital funds to initiate a two phase areawide transportation plan. The first phase is to make an areawide assessment of the various components of the local transportation system. The draft scope of work should be released in the next few days. This assessment is to be completed by September 30, 1998. It is anticipated that the second phase will also be partially funded by both CBJ capital funds and state funds. The plan phase will take approximately one year

An RFP to conduct a downtown parking study has already been released and the proposals are to be opened April 21, 1998. The funding source is the CBJ capital budget with the anticipated funding to be between $40,000 to $60,000. This planning effort is expected to involve conceptual designs for a parking facility or facilities.

A Transportation Steering Committee is presently being formulated to work with staff in the assessment and formulation of the various efforts of this planning program.
