      E. 2016-17 Healthcare & Wellness Program Finance Department
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: It is time to renew the City’s healthcare coverage for
2016-17 plan year (6/1/16 – 5/31/17). Renewal premiums for the City’s current
healthcare program came in at a 7% increase over the current year. Last year

                                    Page 2 of 10
we experienced an increase of 9.9%. In comparative terms, many employers
have been experiencing sharp double-digit rate increases for several years.
Also, the City’s healthcare costs remain below the “hard cap limits” set by PA
152 and remain cost competitive with the standards set by the state for new
hires. These are good independent indicators that the City’s program is cost-
effective.
Starting June 1, 2016, the deductible will be increased from $2,000 for an
individual and $4,000 for double/family to $2,500 for an individual and $5,000 for
double/family. In addition, the coinsurance will change from 80/20% to 70/30%
effective June 1, 2016.
For 2016-17, the City will continue to pay the HRA deductible if the employee
and spouse completed the wellness requirements by March 31st; non-
participants in the wellness program will continue to pay the first $500
(single)/$1,000 (double/family) of the deductible.
FINANCIAL IMPACT:        Following is an estimate of gross premium costs for the
Priority Health HMO Program compared with the current healthcare plan year:




Full-time City employees pay 10% of the above premium costs through payroll
deduction.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: Employee and retiree healthcare costs will be
included in the forthcoming 2016-17 budget.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:       Authorize staff to execute documents with Priority
Health to renew employee healthcare coverage for the coming year.

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The City of Muskegon entered into a development
agreement with Parkland Muskegon, LLC on September 4, 2007. The

                                     Page 8 of 10
to enter into a Second Amendment to the Development Agreement. The
Second Amendment removes Parkland’s requirement to construct 24 new
market housing units on the property adjacent to High Point Flats, and includes
the sale of this property to the City, on the condition that the City builds a
parking lot within twelve months of closing on the property. The parking lot will
be available for the properties on the block, including High Point Flats and
Ameribank. High Point Flats will be responsible for 60% of the annual costs
related to the parking lot (and Ameribank will be responsible for 40%). In
addition, Parkland is required to complete the exterior renovation of High Point
Flats by June 30, 2017, as well as “use reasonable efforts” to complete the
interior renovation by June 30, 2017 (which includes constructing 48 market rate
housing units).

adjacent to High Point Flats is $1.00. In addition, a special assessment in the
amount of $121,330.00 will be placed on the December 2016 property tax bill for

collect the special assessment and it will be discharged and deemed paid in
full.

To:           Honorable Mayor and City Commissioners
From:         Jeffrey A. Lewis
              Director of Public Safety

RE:           Memorandum of Understanding – Justice Assistance Grant


SUMMARY OF REQUEST:

The Director of Public Safety requests that the Commission authorize the Director
and the City Manager to enter into an agreement with the City of Muskegon Heights
and Muskegon County in regards to the disbursement of the FY 2016 Justice
Assistance Grant. It is further requested that the Mayor be authorized to sign the
Memorandum of Understanding. Note that time is of the essence as this grant
requires a 30-day governing body review period and the grant submission and the
grant deadline is June 30.

Although the Bureau of Justice Assistance has designated us as being in a disparate
funding situation due to the County providing more than 50% of the jail facilities, our
proposal is to keep the allocations exactly as they initially came down from the BJA
which is as follows:    County of Muskegon $ 0; City of Muskegon $26,703 and
City of Muskegon Heights $19,085.          Note that BJA uses crime data versus
population in making these allocation decisions.

The City of Muskegon portion is planned to be used in continuation of the manner in
which the previous year’s JAG funding was used, which is for the prosecution of City
ordinance cases dealing primarily with neighborhood issues.

FINANCIAL IMPACT:
None.

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED:
None.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends approval of this request.

                                     RESOLUTION NO. _____

A resolution approving the application for an Obsolete Property Rehabilitation Exemption Certificate by
Hamburger Mikey, LLC.

The City Commission of the City of Muskegon hereby RESOLVES:

Recitals

A.      The City Commission has received an Application for an Obsolete Property Rehabilitation Exemption
        Certificate from Hamburger Mikey, LLC, to apply to the improvements located in an Obsolete
        Property Rehabilitation District established by previous resolution.

B.      The City of Muskegon is a qualified local governmental unit as determined by STC Bulletin No. 9 of
        2000, dated July 12, 2000.

C.      An Obsolete Property Rehabilitation District in which the application property is located was
        established after a hearing on June 14, 2016.

D.      The taxable value of the property proposed to be exempt, plus the aggregate taxable value of
        properties already exempted under PA 146 of 2000 and under PA 198 of 1974, does not exceed five
        percent (5%) of the total taxable value of the City of Muskegon.

E.      In the event it is determined that the said taxable values do exceed five percent (5%), the City
        Commission determines further that the said exceedance will not have the effect of substantially
        impeding the operation of the City of Muskegon or impairing the financial soundness of any affected
        taxing units.

F.      This resolution of approval is considered by the City Commission on June 14, 2016, after a public
        hearing as provided in Section 4(2) of PA 146 of 2000. The hearing was held on this date.

G.      The applicant, Hamburger Mikey, LLC, is not delinquent any taxes related to the facility.

H.      The exemption to be granted by this resolution is for nine (9) years.

I.      The exemption was approved for less than the maximum of twelve (12) years and there will not
        be any extension available.

J.      All items described under “Instructions” (a) through (f) of the application for Obsolete Property
        Rehabilitation Exemption Certificate have been provided to the City of Muskegon, the Qualified
        Local Government Unit, by the applicant.

K.      The City Commission finds that the property for which the Obsolete Property Rehabilitation
        Exemption Certificate is sought is obsolete property within the meaning of Section 2(h) of Public Act
        146 of 2000 in that the property, which is commercial, is functionally obsolete. The City has received
        from the applicant all the items required by Section 9 of the application form, being the general
        description of the obsolete facility, a general description of the proposed use, a description of the
        general nature and extent of the rehabilitation to be undertaken, a descriptive list of fixed building
        equipment that will be part of the rehabilitated facility, a time schedule for undertaking and complete
        the rehabilitation, and statement of the economic advantages expected from the exemption.

L.      Commencement of the rehabilitation has not occurred before the establishment of the district.
M.      The application relates to a rehabilitation program that when completed will constitute a rehabilitated
        within the meaning of PA 146 of 2000 and will be situated within the Obsolete Property Rehabilitation
        District established by the City under PA 146 of 2000.

N.      Completion of the rehabilitated facility is calculated to and will, at the time of the issuance of the
        Certificate, have the reasonable likelihood to increase commercial activity and create employment; it
        will revitalize an urban area. The rehabilitation will include improvements aggregating more than ten
        percent (10%) of the true cash value of the property at the commencement of the rehabilitation.

O.      The City Commission determines that the applicant shall have twelve (12) months to complete the
        rehabilitation. It shall be completed by June 14, 2017, or one year after the Certificate is issued,
        whichever occurs later.

P.      That notice pursuant to statute has been timely given to the applicant, the assessor for the City of
        Muskegon, representatives of the affected taxing units and the general public.

        NOW, THEREFORE, THE CITY COMMISSION RESOLVES:

1.      Based upon the statements set forth in, and incorporating the recitals to this resolution, the City
        Commission hereby approves the application filed by Hamburger Mikey, LLC, for an Obsolete
        Property Rehabilitation Exemption Certificate, to be effective for a period of nine (9) years;

2.      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that this resolution of approval relates to the property set forth in
        Attachment A, the legal description containing the facilities to be improved;

3.      BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that, as further condition of this approval, the applicant shall comply
        with the representations and conditions set forth in the recitals above and in the application material
        submitted to the City.

This resolution passed.
