    CITY COMMISSION CHAMBERS @ 5:30 P.M.
                                 MINUTES

The Regular Commission Meeting of the City of Muskegon was held at City Hall,
933 Terrace Street, Muskegon, MI at 5:30 p.m., Tuesday, June 14, 2011.
Mayor Warmington opened the meeting with a prayer from Commissioner
Lawrence Spataro after which the Commission and public recited the Pledge of
Allegiance to the Flag.
ROLL CALL FOR THE REGULAR COMMISSION MEETING:
Present: Mayor Stephen Warmington, Vice Mayor Stephen Gawron,
Commissioners Sue Wierengo, Steve Wisneski, Chris Carter, Clara Shepherd, and
Lawrence Spataro, City Manager Bryon Mazade, City Attorney John Schrier, and
City Clerk Ann Marie Becker.
2011-40 CONSENT AGENDA:
      A. Approval of Minutes. CITY CLERK
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: To approve minutes of the City Commission Meeting
that was held on Tuesday, May 24, 2011.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: None.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Approval of the minutes.
      B. Loan for Street Projects. FINANCE
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The City is fortunate to receive many federal and state
grants for street improvements. Accepting these grants allows us to leverage
local resources and get far more work done than would be possible using local
resources alone. We are at a point where we risk losing grant funds due to
declining local street resources (including CDBG). This request is to enter into a
$2.0 million, 10-year loan with 5/3 Bank in order to provide funds needed to
match anticipated grants over the next 2-3 years.
Staff had considered issuing MTF bonds for this purpose. However, the issuance
costs would be quite high ($57,000). Also, the bonding process is very time-
intensive requiring preparation of official statements and numerous other
documents. Staff surveyed the three major banks having offices within the
                                        1
City to determine if they were willing to do a 10-year loan with the City. Two of
the banks indicated they would do such a loan and 5/3 Bank had the most
favorable terms.
The City’s financial advisor (RW Baird) ran comparisons of the two transactions
and advises that the bank loan is the preferred avenue. It is worth noting that
the advisor would have received a substantial fee if MTF bonds were issued.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: $2.0 million borrowed for a period of 10 years at a fixed rate
of 2.98%.
Going the bank loan route provides for a much simpler transaction, avoids over
$50,000 in issuance costs, and produces an all-inclusive interest cost that is lower
than issuing MTF bonds.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: Annual debt payments will be included in the
Major/Local Streets budgets for the next 10 years. Funds are budgeted in 2011-
12 to cover the semi-annual interest payment due February 1, 2012.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Authorize the Mayor, City Attorney and City staff to
prepare and execute necessary loan documents.
      D. Memorandum of Understanding-Justice Assistance Grant.               PUBLIC
         SAFETY
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 2010 Justice Assistance Grant. The money in this
grant is shared by the three entities. The $34,698 in this grant will be utilized for
the prosecution of city ordinance cases primarily dealing with neighborhood
issues.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: None.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Approval of this request.
      E. Approval of the Use & Maintenance of City Owned Property at 325
         Jackson Avenue by the Jackson Hill Neighborhood Association.
         PLANNING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: To approve the use and maintenance of the City
owned property located at 325 Jackson Avenue for a community garden. The
property is buildable and the City would retain the right to sell the property with
the Jackson Hill Neighborhood Association having time to remove the garden
prior to any sales.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: The City would save on the cost of maintenance of this
property.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.

the additional revenues and expenditures.

Re:            Special Event Request –
               Muskegon Bike Time Events Inc (annual event)


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Muskegon Bike Time Events Inc. has filed a special event
application for the annual Bike Time festival in downtown Muskegon to be held July 15, 16, &
17, 2011. They have requested the waiver of some City equipment rental fees. They have also
requested to use their own labor pool rather than City employees whenever possible (as they
have done in past years).

Bike Time would also like permission to close certain street intersections in the downtown area
one day earlier than allowed in the special event policy, so that they can work on event/tent set-
up. They would like to close the intersections listed on the attached sheet starting at 6:00 p.m.
on Wednesday evening, July 13 (instead of waiting til Thursday evening, July 14).

FINANCIAL IMPACT: Request that equipment rental fees be waived. In exchange Bike Time
will provide a pre-negotiated amount of beverage tent wristbands. The exchange will be
coordinated with the City Manager.


BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED:               None


STAFF RECOMMENDATION:                It is recommended that staff be allowed to make the final
decision regarding rental fees, actual costs, and/or exchange of wristbands, to be coordinated
through the City Manager. In addition, staff recommends that if Bike Time picks up items such
as picnic tables, bleachers, and trash cans for distribution at the proper locations, there will be
no equipment rental charge to Bike Time. This must first be approved by and coordinated
through City staff.    It is also recommended that City staff review staffing levels for City
personnel with the Bike Time staff, with the City making the final decision on the number of City
staff needed for the event. These recommendations follow what was done for the 2009 event.

Regarding street closures, staff recommends approval with the condition that Bike Time notify
affected downtown businesses of the dates and times of street closures and the date and time
that No Parking restrictions go into effect on those streets.


COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION:                    N/A
Bike Time respectfully requests to close the following streets/intersections starting at 6:00 p.m.
