Re:    City Commission Meeting

Date: May 5, 2016

Here is a quick outline of the items on next week’s agenda:

Work Session

We will have our Work Session and CRC Meeting at McGraft Park on Monday. The CRC meeting
will actually come first, and the Work Session will follow. Here are the topics of discussion:

           a.   (CRC). Muskegon County Administrator, Mark Eisenbarth, will be in attendance
                to discuss the County’s efforts to create a Recreation Authority. This effort would
                supplant the current quality of life millage. There are opportunities for this to
                benefit the LC Walker and other city facilities, but that would be determined at a
                later date. Mark would like to talk about the concept and answer questions. If
                the Commission is supportive, he would like a letter of support to take to his
                County Commission.
           b.   (CRC).The Mayor and I will present the Actions Plans that were formed at the
                staff level following the Goal Setting Session. We should have email copies of the
                entire plan to the Commission prior to the meeting.
           c.   (Work Session). We’ll take a more in-depth look at revenue enhancements for
                the coming year(s). It is important to have this conversation now, as we are
                building the budget to be presented to the commission in the next 6 weeks.
                Items to cover will include lighting assessments, street improvement
                assessments, parking at Pere Marquette, vacation rental registration, etc.
           d.   (Work Session). We are proposing an immediate sewer rate increase following
                the loss of a major customer. The customer was a township-based groundwater
                cleanup site. They were essentially pumping groundwater, treating it, and
                disposing of it via our sewer system. They were given approval from the DEQ to
                stop this operation in the past few months. We are seeing a tremendous impact
                on the sewer fund – taking an original budget deficit of $443,000 and growing it
                to nearly $1,000,000. Originally, we had a plan to step up the sewer rates over
                the next few years to a 1.32 multiplier of the county rate. Staff is now asking that
                the rate be increased to 1.35 times the county treatment rate, effective July 1,
                2016.
           e.   (Work Session). We are seeking approval to hold a few special events at the
                Farmers Market to benefit the Power of Produce Program. The events would be
                similar to the Party in the Park concept, where non-profits operate the beverage
                area in an attempt to raise dollars for the specific charity. Originally, we were
                looking to only try this on Thursday evenings, but we would also like to try this
                on Saturdays, as well, because the impact on the charity would be much greater
                with the larger Saturday attendance.

Regular Meeting

1.     We will be presenting a special honor to Mardrekia Cook as the runner-up to the Miss
       Basketball award for the State of Michigan. She is a Big Red.
2.     Carla Flanders from the Chamber’s Beautification Committee will be here to speak about
       the group’s efforts to beautify Sherman Ave from US 31 to Beach Street. They will be
       looking for financial/staff participation from the City at some point.
3.     Under the consent agenda, we are asking the Commission for approval of the following:
       a. Last meeting’s minutes.
       b. A proclamation related to National Bike to Work Week.
       c. A Special Event Liquor License for the Farmers Market – to allow alcoholic beverages
            to be sold as part of a fundraiser for the Power of Produce Program.
       d. CDBG/HOME Recommendations from the CNS staff and the CDC Board. There are
            few changes from recent years, except that some funding was reduced. The big
            change for the year lies in the Emergency Housing Repair Program, as we will now
            require lead (water) testing prior to making an investment in a home.
       e. A contract with Zeno’s Italian Ice to sell concessions in certain city parks.
       f. A traffic control order allowing the installation of yield signs at the intersection of
            Miner and Denmark.
       g. We are planning to award the Monroe Street improvement project at this meeting.
            However, the bids are not due until Tuesday afternoon. Our plan is to review them
            and have a recommended contractor just prior to the meeting. It’s important that
            the contract gets approved this week, as we need them to start ASAP so we can get
            the houses on Monroe finalized with drive approaches and landscaping.

If there are questions on any agenda items, please try to let staff know in advance, and we will
be sure to have the appropriate data/research available at the meeting.
