Introductions
Beth Beulow facilitated the meeting. The meeting began with sharing one word that describes
Muskegon. Words include: dynamic, engaged, hard-working, underestimated, resilient,
beautiful, genuine, gem, change, vision, welcoming, evolving, re-evolving, passionate, resilient,
opportunities, refreshing rejuvenated, moving, interesting, awesome, beautiful/gorgeous, home,
momentum, attractive, and diverse.

Ms. Beulow spoke about active listening and using words like thank you, please, I hear you. Be
mindful of language, tone, eye contact, engaged expression, and posture. Take notes. Practice
actively listening. Conflict can be creative and productive and a reminder that we can only
control our own response to our surroundings. Remember that we are all on the same team.

Public Comment
Comments were heard from members of the audience.

The group broke down into small groups to discuss youth/education, social justice, and
housing. The results of those discussions are listed below.

                                Youth/Education Focus Group

   •   What resources are available to kids pursuing entrepreneurial ideas? Need to have an
       entrepreneurial culture to expose them to and give them economic opportunities.
   •   Needs to start at K-12 level. Schools affect every part of the students’ life, from food
       availability to technology exposure. Need to be partners with schools, and work to bring
       exposure to different career areas for the students.
   •   Need to identify barriers to parental involvement. How can we support them and get
       them involved with both the success of their student and the school system? We know
       time and money are both constraints, for parents and schools. How do we hold parents
       accountable?
   •    The pandemic has only amplified these issues.
   •   How do we make students aware of opportunities that exist, while still ensuring they
       master the curriculum?
   •   How do we ensure that opportunities that exist in our city are taken advantage of by our
       residents? Often times we see opportunities that end up going to residents of other areas
       simply because there was a lack of residents aware of or interested in the opportunity.
   •   How can the city join and support the conversation and movement that already exist? We
       don’t necessarily need to start a new one.
   •   We need to identify what works and what doesn’t.
What is success? Getting the opportunities in front of youth and making connections. Ensuring
everyone has equal access to the opportunities. We need to compile a list of what exists and then
grow those connections.
What do we need to keep doing? Identifying the connections to youth and working to grow
those connections. Working to grow parental involvement.
What do we need to stop doing? Stop being exclusive, and start being inclusive. We need to
value all input.
What do we need to start doing? Strengthening current connections. Offering more connections
and opportunities for youth and school-age children.
How do we measure progress? Possibly using school data, such as enrollment, but that can’t be
the only measure. Need to identify the relationship and connections that have been strengthened
and increased. Maybe use a survey of parents and students.
What does accountability look like? We need to continually re-affirm our commitment to
strengthened relationships and connections, and regularly re-evaluate that progress.

                                         Social Justice

   •   A need to use the next year to define what social justice is and to have those
       conversations internally within City Hall and externally in the community. Public
       education.
   •   Equality vs. Equity in terms of just not providing the same to everyone (equality) but
       providing what each one needs to get to a common outcome (equity).
   •   It has taken generations and centuries for us to get to 2021 with special attention and
       effort to create injustice, it will take as much attention and effort to create equity.
   •   In the next three years, look at the DPW training positions being used to help create a
       workforce that looks like our city population. Similar efforts are underway in public
       safety – police and fire.
   •   To get beyond where we are at today in terms of social justice, we must be
       INTENTIONAL.
   •   The city has made progress in diversifying its workforce but there is a long way to go.
   •   The city is not always competitive in pay and benefits in attracting and retaining
       employees of color.
   •   In the next three years, replicate the intentional efforts in DPW and public safety to
       diversify the city workforce.
   •   In the next three years, go from an education Promise to a job Promise.
   •   In the next three years, downtown will be home to more minority owned businesses as
       the current mix is not representative of who lives in Muskegon.
   •   Create a Citizens Economic Equity Commission that as the planning commission looks at
       land use this group will look at economic development policies and projects.
   •   At the table on the issue of social justice needs to be members of marginalized groups
       who have not had a voice, especially black citizens., decision makers/gatekeepers, the
       private sector, educators and all citizens of the city.
   •   Keep: Training job slots, promotion of policies that create equity and
       conversations/engagement on social justice.
   •   Stop: Barriers to social justice/equity inherent in the city’s civil service system,
       restrictions in the human resources system managed for the city by the county,
       staff/elected officials using social justice buzzwords that are doing little to further social
       justice.
   •   Start: Uniform understanding and use of social justice terminology, programs and
       policies to promote/support minority-owned businesses, a job promise for the youth of
       the city entering post high school training or education.
   •   Economic development and the creation/support of minority owned businesses not only
       focused on Downtown and Lakeside but other city commercial districts and
       neighborhoods.
   •   Progress in social justice needs to be data driven in counting people, ie, minority and
       women representation in the city workforce, the incomes of minority and women
       employees, and the number of minority-owned – mainly black-owned – businesses
       created or supported in the city.

                   CITY COMMISSION WORKSESSION

                          Monday, March 8, 2021
                               5:30 p.m.
                           REMOTE MEETING

                                  MINUTES



Present: Mayor Gawron (Muskegon, MI), Vice Mayor Hood (Muskegon,
MI), Commissioners Rinsema-Sybenga (Muskegon, MI), Emory
(Muskegon, MI), Johnson (Muskegon, MI), Ramsey (Muskegon, MI), and
German (Muskegon, MI).

Special Event Policy Update – City Clerk
Special event applications have transitioned to the City Clerk’s Office. Staff
reviewed current policies and is suggesting some updates/changes. Along
with a review of the current policy, staff reviewed fees and made several
recommendations as well as the adoption of a policy that allows any event
requesting a waiver of fees to fill out a form to be presented to City
Commission for consideration.

Over many years, Parties in the Park has had all fees waived for use of the
park and use of city equipment. Parties in the Park did raise funds and
added a new stage built at Hackley Park. This has been an ongoing
practice for many years. We are looking for acknowledgment from City
Commissioners to continue this practice and/or make any necessary
changes.

Staff held several meetings to discuss proposed fees and changes to the
policy. Many of the proposed changes provide further clarification for staff
and applicants. Some of the major changes include paid parking at the
beach, the elimination of deposits, uniformity for insurance requirements,
and increasing the fee for the use of Hackley Park.




                                   Page 1 of 5
Discussion took place regarding the Special Event Policy updates and this
item will be placed on the March 9, 2021 Regular Commission meeting
agenda for consideration.

Downtown Muskegon Social District Full Launch – Economic Development
Staff is requesting authorization to have the Muskegon City Clerk’s Office
sell biodegradable Social District cups and have the city cover the 2021
social district expenses.

The Muskegon City Commission approved the Downtown Muskegon Social
District in August. It has been operating 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a
week in a limited area since mid-September. The DMSD needs to be
expanded to its full area and open to all 22 potential establishments.
Please see an accompanying memo outlining the full launch of the DMSD
slated for mid-April.

Discussion took place regarding the full launch of the Downtown Muskegon
Social District and this item will be placed on the March 9, 2021 Regular
Commission meeting agenda for consideration.

Small Retailer Assistance Program – Economic Development
Staff is seeking approval of modifications to the City’s Small Retailer
Assistance Program. The Small Retailer Assistance Program was
established to aid in the creation of more small retail businesses and to aid
existing small retail businesses negatively impacted by COVID-19. Current
grant incentives include: Rental Assistance Grant, Retail Renovation Grant,
CV Rental Assistance Grant, and CV Capital Grant.

Rental Assistance Grant (new business) – intended to help small
retailers open new storefronts in traditional brick and mortar buildings.
Grantees reimbursed 50% of monthly rent, up to $5,000. Changes include:
Existing micro-retailers with under 300 sf of space will be eligible for
assistance when they move to their own space with their own street
frontage.

Retail Renovation Grant (new or existing business) – intended to assist
in creation of more rentable retail spaces. Grantees reimbursed 50% (up to
$5,000) of renovation costs associated with upgrading defunct space into
usable retail suite. No changes.


                                  Page 2 of 5
CV Rental Assistance Grant (existing business) – intended to help
existing small retailers continue operations in storefronts located in
traditional brick and mortar buildings. Grantees reimbursed 75% of their
monthly rent, up to $5,000. Changes include: Change to “CV Assistance
Grant” / grantees to be reimbursed 75% of their business operating losses,
rather than monthly rent, up to $5,000/remove eligibility requirement that
applicant “employ no more than five people”/permit “retailers or restaurants
who are independent and locally-owned” to now be eligible
applicants/remove requirement to offer retail goods for sale/remove
requirement to possess an executed rental agreement/revise location
requirement that applicant be in a traditional brick and mortar building,
rather than a “retail suite”, which is visible from the street/allow applicant to
demonstrate “significant” business loss rather proving “greater than 50%”
business loss & remove reference to comparable “prior months/years” /
permit business to be reimbursed 75% of business operating losses upon
providing evidence of business operating losses.

CV Capital Grant (existing business) – intended to help existing small
retailers continue operations in storefronts located in traditional brick and
mortar buildings. Grantees reimbursed 75% of their expenses up to a total
of $5,000 for renovations associated with modifying storefront in response
to COVID-19 distancing guidelines and reduced capacity requirements. No
changes.

Discussion took place regarding the Small Retailer Assistance Program
and this item will be placed on the March 9, 2021 Regular Commission
meeting agenda for consideration.

Inclusive Zoning – Development Services
Staff is requesting further consideration and direction on expansion of
inclusive zoning to additional neighborhoods beyond Lakeside and Nelson.

In an effort to support development that is inclusive and offers options to
build wealth, staff is again putting the urban residential zoning expansion
before the commission. The benefits of providing housing options are
numerous:
   • Housing at every price point is more inclusive
   • Housing that allow people to stay in one neighborhood for a lifetime
      as their housing needs change
   • Lease options for those who cannot or prefer not to own
                                    Page 3 of 5
   • Ensures proper space for parking
   • Options for people to build generational wealth by supplementing
       their mortgage with rental income from the second unit
   • Allowing multi-generational families to live at one address
   • Limits gentrification often seen in exclusive single-family zoning
   • Honors existing neighborhoods and residents living in them by
       providing options that are currently allowed there
   • Creates opportunities for local developers to build incrementally
   • Developments can provide affordability without significant subsidy,
       saving the city money and ultimately adding to our property and
       income tax base
Staff continues to turn away developers who want to build these housing
options. Since our last communication with commissioner on January 28,
another developer has contacted us to inquire about constructing duplexes,
and a developer from Lansing is interested to build mixed use and multi-
family. We have built good momentum in the city, and the current zoning is
limiting our ability to continue.

LeighAnn Mikesell, Director of Development Services, provided a slide-
show presentation and there was discussion regarding inclusive zoning.
The Department is looking for direction from the City Commission on this
topic.

Creation of a Citizen’s Commission on Economic Equity – Economic
Development

For several months we have been researching allowable methods to
increase the focus on economic development in the community through an
equity lens. The proposed commission would function as an advisory board
to the City Commission in a similar capacity to the Planning Commission,
but with a specific focus on social equity related to projects of growth and
development in the city.

Over approximately the last year, the Economic Development Department
has been researching public sector methods to improve focus on equity in
building, development, housing, and industry. What we discovered is that
there are lots of internal, organizational, nonprofit, academic, and human
resource related groups or policies pertaining to equity that all accomplish
worthwhile progress. We would like to take an innovative approach and

                                   Page 4 of 5
empower minority and marginalized members of our community by creating
a structural conduit to every major development project the city reviews.
The board will have the opportunity to hear from developers and staff, and
work with them to ensure Muskegon is on the forefront of creating an
equitable investment environment. This board will review large scale
housing, commercial, and industrial proposals, and have the ability to make
recommendations to the developer and City Commission concerning
matters of social equity related to each project. Additionally, this
commission will eventually be encouraged to foster community
conversations and education in the city to raise awareness on equity issues
surrounding economics, such as disparities in wealth, opportunity for home
ownership, wages, etc. This way, the City doubly benefits from their service
by using the members’ position in their cohort and the wider community.
The slide deck and resolution attached go into further detail on the creation
and structure of this new Citizen’s Commission on Economic Equity.

Jake Eckholm, Director of Economic Development, provided a slide-show
presentation and there was discussion regarding the creation of a Citizen’s
Commission on Economic Equity. The Department is looking for direction
from the City Commission on this topic.

   F. Updated Deficit Elimination Plan – Sewer Fund       Finance
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: To approve the Deficit Elimination plan and resolution
for the Sewer Fund and direct staff to submit plan to the State of Michigan.
On June 30, 2020 the Sewer Fund had a $3,595,965 deficit unrestricted net
position. Act 275 of Public Acts of 1980 requires the City to formulate a deficit

deficit elimination plan and resolution for the Sewer Fund are attached.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:           To approve the deficit elimination resolution for

                                          Page 3 of 12
the Sewer Fund.
   G. Campbell Field Playground         Public Works
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is seeking authorization to approve the purchase
of several items related to the construction of a new playground at Campbell
Field.
The City was unsuccessful in our grant application to MDNR to fund
improvements at Campbell Field, however staff is still moving forward on several
of the identified improvements that were previously shared for public comment
and are attached. This work is being completed utilizing the city matching funds
that were generated from the PILOT Agreement with Royale Glen Apartments
($156K).
To that end, City Staff is requesting permission to move forward with the
playground replacement at Campbell Field including contracting for the
construction of the playground pad, purchase of playground surfacing tiles and
contracting installation services for a new playground.
The equipment for the new playground was purchased through the Beidler
Street Sanitary Sewer Project (590/591-91854) and originally planned to be
placed at the Beidler Street tot-lot as a replacement for the equipment that was
removed there to facilitate the sewer installation. Through staff discussion and
coordination with the Campbell Field neighborhood we are now proposing to
install the new playground structure at Campbell Field and develop an
alternate plan for the Beidler Street tot-lot at a later date.
First, staff proposes to engage Wing Contracting, which is currently contracted
as the low bidder to install the concrete pad for the Aamodt Park Playground, to
install the concrete at Campbell Field. The cost of this is TBD but estimated at
approximately $8K and would be handled as a change order under the current
agreement for Aamodt Park. This change order would be over the % thresholds
available for approval at the staff level.
Second, staff recommends purchase of playground surfacing tiles along with
professional playground installation services from Sinclair Recreation. They are
the city’s preferred vendor for playground services and the suppliers of the
already purchased playground equipment. The cost for these items is
$35,752.40.
Staff will return with additional requests at a later date to utilize more of the
remaining funds towards completion of items at Campbell Field.
AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $43,752.40    AMOUNT BUDGETED:           $156,000
FUND OR ACCOUNT:          404
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:         Authorize staff to approve a change order with
Wing Construction to provide the concrete work for the new playground pad at

                                           Page 4 of 12
a cost not to exceed $8K and authorize staff to contract with Sinclair Recreation
for the purchase of playground surfacing tiles and playground installation
services in the amount of $35,752.40
   H. Beidler Change Order #004        Public Works
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is seeking authorization to approve Change Order
#004 to the sewer project work on Beidler Street in the Campbell Field
Neighborhood.
Final quantity measurements have been completed for the water and sewer
work conducted throughout the Campbell Field Neighborhood on Crowley,
Beidler, Young, and Pulaski Streets and the project has been recommended for
final acceptance and closeout.
Change Order #004 represents an increase to the Contract value of $9,847.24.
Combined with the previously approved Change Orders #001-#003 the total
change order value for the project stands at $38,077.86 on an original contract
value of $5,465,514.75 for a net final increase of 0.7%. The approved project
budgets contained a contingency of ~6% so this final balancing does not
exceed the budgeted contingency. Future reforecasts will reduce the total
budgeted cost of this project.
AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $5,503,592.61   AMOUNT BUDGETED: $5,793,445.64
                                                            ($5,465,514.75 + 6%)
FUND OR ACCOUNT:          590/591-91854
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:          Authorize staff to approve Change Order #004 to
the Westwood Sewer Project with Kamminga and Roodvoets in the amount of
$9,847.24 for a total net change on the project of $38,077.86.
   I. Harvey Pump Station Electrical Upgrades         Public Works – Filtration
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting authorization to contract with Wirtz
Electric & Communications for electrical upgrades at the Harvey Pump Station.
The Harvey Pump Station is critical to the distribution of drinking water to the City
of Muskegon and its wholesale customers. The electrical power for the entire
facility is distributed through the original motor control center (MCC) installed in
1964. The MCC is well beyond its expected service life of 40 years, and it was
recommended to staff that it be replace for reasons of reliability and safety. As
part of this project, the soft starters in the MCC that control the two constant
speed water pumps will be upgraded to variable frequency drives (VFDs) to
improve both reliability and efficiency.
Staff is also recommending the replacement of the existing armored cable that
feeds the MCC. Similar cable at the pump station experienced a seal failure
that resulted in water entering electrical equipment, and this project provides
an ideal opportunity to prevent a similar occurrence.

                                          Page 5 of 12
The base bid for this scope of work includes the cost to run new conduit
between the MCC and the pump motors. However, this cost will be deducted
from the total cost listed below if an inspection of the original conduit shows it to
be reusable for this project.
Proposals were solicited from five electrical contractors for the purchase, install,
and startup of all equipment. Three proposals were received. Staff recommends
this project be awarded to the lowest bidder, Wirtz Electric & Communications.
This project was budgeted as part of the ongoing upgrades to the Harvey Pump
Station.
                                       Base Bid       Feed Cable         Total

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:        Authorize staff to contract with Wirtz Electric &
Communications for $295,266.00 to perform electrical upgrades at the Harvey
Pump Station.
   J. Asphalt Paver Purchase DPW/Equipment Division
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The Equipment Division is requesting permission to
purchase one Asphalt Paver from Michigan Cat, the authorized, Mi-Deal
contract holder. We will be re-forecasting the Equipment budget for the third
quarter to reflect deleting two truck purchase and then allocating an additional
$7,000.00 to cover the purchase of this Paver.
The Equipment Division and Highway Department have been trading services
with another local Community for the use of their paver as needed. This
machine is aging rapidly and will soon be obsolete with nowhere to buy repair
parts. That is why this purchase is imperative to our paving projects to maintain
the quality of service our citizens have come to expect. This machine will also
allow the City to take on many more projects to ease the burden of always
needing to hire a contractor for slightly larger paving projects in our Parks and
Alleyways.
AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $90,335.00          AMOUNT BUDGETED:           $90,335.00
FUND OR ACCOUNT:          661
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:        Authorize staff to move forward with the
purchase of LeeBoy paver through Michigan CAT in the amount of $90,335.00
under the Mi-Deal Contract.

   K. MDOT Agreement for Peck Street          Public Works
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting approval of the contract with MDOT
for the reconstruction of Peck Street from Merrill Avenue north to Apple Avenue
and approval of the resolution authorizing the Mayor and Clerk to sign the
contract.
This is the standard contract governing projects that are constructed using
federal funds through MDOT. The estimated cost for the project construction is
$843,138.82 with $381,810 of that being federal surface transportation funding
and the remainder will be accounted for in the City’s 21-22 Budget for Major
Streets (~$300K / 202-92002) and Water (~$250K / 591-92002) funds.
Work on this portion of Peck Street is planned to commence after the 4th of July
and continue into September, hence the budgeting for these projects will fall in
next fiscal year.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:        Approve the attached contract and resolution
and authorize the mayor and clerk to sign both.

In accordance with the purchasing policy staff solicited three bids for this work
and is recommending award of the work to the low bidder St. John Truck and
Trailer in the amount of $24,680.50. Bids were received as follows:

   N. Lakeside Corridor Improvement Authority Resolution       Economic
      Development
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The Lakeside BID Board has petitioned the City to allow
for the creation of a Corridor Improvement Authority and corresponding Tax
Increment Financing Plan. A public hearing to take comments concerning the
creation of the Authority and its boundaries has taken place, allowing for the
creation of the Corridor Improvement Authority by the City Commission through
adopting the attached resolution.
The Lakeside Business Improvement District Board has requested a Corridor
Improvement Authority to generate TIF revenues and eventually phase out their
Business Improvement District special assessment. On October 27th the City
Commission held a required public hearing to review submitted comments on
the establishment of the Authority and its boundaries. Per Public Act 280 of 2005,
not less than 60 days must pass after the public hearing in order for taxing
authorities to be notified and give any feedback on the creation of the CIA. This
has taken place, and now the Commission may establish the Lakeside Corridor
Improvement Authority by adoption of the provided resolution. The next steps
will involve appointing the current Lakeside BID Board as the CIA Board
members after the resolution has been adopted and sent to the Michigan
Secretary of State. Once appointed, the CIA Board can adopt and submit a Tax
Increment Financing Plan to the state and begin TIF capture.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:         To adopt the resolution establishing the Lakeside
Corridor Improvement Authority as presented, and to direct staff to submit the
adopted resolution to the Michigan Secretary of State.
   O. Port City Industrial Park Expansion RFP       Economic Development
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The site preparation work at the former Shoreline
Correctional Facility is complete, and though we still await the outcome of a
recent EDA grant application for some utility capacity improvements the time is
right to seek submissions for potential end-users and/or builders. The attached
RFP seeks one or more developers to partner with the city by developing the 63
acre site.
Over the past year, the Economic Development department has submitted the
site for consideration in 5 confidential MEDC RFI’s all of which were either


                                         Page 8 of 12
national or North America wide. We did achieve third in a statewide
agribusiness attraction project as well. However, one “big fish” end-user
attraction is fairly rare and highly competitive, and now that we have seen a
slow down in these types of requests from MEDC during the pandemic the
department would like to try casting a wider net for potential development. The
site should garner significant interest, and this document contains the necessary
details for manufacturers and builders to submit potential construction projects.
The RFP is authored to accommodate multiple potential users, considering the
size of the development area. This RFP would be pushed by press release, social
media, trade publications/professional associations, and by working with our
county Economic Development partner GMED.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:            A motion to endorse the Request for Proposals for
the Port City Industrial Park Expansion as presented.
   P. Acquisition of 1259 Sanford from Muskegon County Landbank Economic
      Development
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Now that we have finalized the funding sources and
passed HUD’s administrative review for the EACH program, we are ready to
construct owner occupied homes for low-mod families. We own two of the three
lots for the development, and must acquire this last lot from the Muskegon
County Land Bank in order to execute the development agreement and begin
construction.
The City’s development of owner-occupied home construction in partnership
with Community enCompass has cleared administrative review by HUD, and we
are ready to order homes and commence construction. Now that the
development is assured, we need to acquire the only lot not currently under site
control by the city to ensure that we can utilize the Brownfield TIF. Tim Burgess
with the County Land Bank is very supportive of the program and our
application is pending per Commission approval. The offered price on the lot
we are recommending is one dollar at this time, though it is up to the County
Treasurer to accept the price and this is not guaranteed.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:       A motion to approve the acquisition of 1259
Sanford from the Muskegon County Land for the development of a single family
home, pending Land Bank approval.

Dear Muskegon City Commissioners,

As Muskegon’s only licensed Marijuana Event Organizer I bring to you today a marijuana
consumption event request for June 19 at Park Place Provisionary.

The details are as follows:

Location: 1922 Park Street, Muskegon Park Place Provisionary’s east parking lot, on the map
as Parcels 1 and 2.

Date: June 19, 2021

Time: noon to 8 PM

Event name: Smoke on the Water

Tickets: $42 to $75, pre-sold via a third party and in our stores

Who: People 21 and older, no kids, no animals, no bikes, blades or boards. IDs are checked at
the gate and patrons will be issued wristbands.

What: Live music from three or four bands throughout the day, no alcohol sales, we will have
food trucks or vendors, on-site cannabis sales from Agri-Med (Park Place Provisionary) only.
This sales area will be on the south side of the building.

COVID: We will scale this event to Michigan’s regulations on crowd size and provide hand
cleaning stands and sinks with soap and water at the portajohns.

Responsible parties: This is a joint venture between Roberta F. King, AU licensed Marijuana
Event Organizer and Agri-Med AU licensee and property owner.

Marijuana consumption: This is an on-site cannabis consumption event and while there’s no
program like TIPS for budtenders, Public Health Muskegon County is working on developing
some helpful information for security and budtenders. People will be smoking marijuana
on-premise. Ashtrays will be provided. There will be fire extinguishers and a faucet with a hose
is on site.

Insured: We are insured for a million dollars in liability.

Overconsumption: We’ll have a couple of chaise lounges under a four-pole canopy for people
who need to lay down and chill. We’ll ask Muskegon Fire will staff this area from 2 to 8 PM.
Parking: On the north side of the building (handicapped and special tickets) and surrounding
streets.

Neighbors: Shelby Avenue residents will receive written notice of the event one month in
advance and will be offered complimentary admission to the event.
As Shelby Avenue is the only public-facing area (which according to state rules must be blocked
from view, we’re planning to move two on-site semi-trailers to that area to block the view. It will
also muffle the sound.

Security: We are interviewing security firms at present and expect that there will be at least
seven security personnel on-site at all times, two each at the entrances and two walking the
premises and one watching the egress gate.

Seating: We’re providing at least 100 folding chairs, but urging people to bring their own.

Stage and power: There will be a temporary rented stage on the eastside of the building and
power will come from sources there.

Tents: The only tents on site will be small four-pole “vendor” canopy tents.

Other: We’ll be providing lawn games like cornhole for people to play and there may be a Puff
and Paint class, too.

Marketing will be handled by Canna Communication and Agri-Med.

Thank you for your consideration of this request.

Commission Meeting Date: March 23, 2021               Title: Extension of Temporary Modification to
                                                      MERS Benefit Provisions

Submitted By: Beth Lewis                              Department: Finance

Brief Summary: The City Finance department is requesting an extension of the Temporary
Modification to the MERS Benefit Provisions for the Defined Benefit employees which was adopted
on May 12, 2020. This provision would temporarily lower the number of hours an employee would
have to work during the month to earn service credit to accommodate those employees taking part
in the Work Share furloughs.

Detailed Summary: Currently employees need to work 150 hours per month to receive service
credit for their defined benefit pension. This modification would allow an employee to work 126
hours and still receive service credit for the month. The extension of the temporary provision
would be in effect through 2021.



Amount Requested: n/a                                Amount Budgeted: n/a

Fund(s) or Account(s):                               Fund(s) or Account(s):

Recommended Motion: To approve the Extension of the Temporary Modifications to Benefit
Provision as presented.

Commission Meeting Date: 3/23/2021                     Title: Credit Card Processor Change

Submitted By: Sarah Petersen                           Department: Treasurer

Brief Summary: We received notice that our software provider, BS&A, will no longer be compatible
with Official Payments, the provider we are currently using for online utility and tax payments as of
7/6/2021. BS&A has two payment providers they will integrate with: Point and Pay or Invoice
Cloud Solutions. We have chosen to partner with Point and Pay for our credit card services.

Detailed Summary: We have many customers that utilize the online payment system, particularly
for utility bills. Since we were notified that BS&A would no longer work with Official Payments, our
current credit card provider, we have looked into the two credit card processing options BS&A will
partner with. A majority of the municipalities in Michigan have chosen to use Point and Pay.
Based on feedback from municipalities that have utilized Invoice Cloud Solutions, it did not seem
to be a good fit for us.


Point and Pay presents significant benefits over the old system. Their payment system is fully
integrated with our software; when a customer makes a payment online or at the counter, their
account is immediately updated. We will no longer need to import payments into our system the
day after they are made online. Point and Pay offers additional online payment options, including
e-checks at a lower cost than credit card transactions. There is no implementation fee or support
costs charged to the city in order to accept payments through Point and Pay, and the processing
fees charged to the city and residents are lower than our current processor.



Amount Requested: N/A                                Amount Budgeted: N/A

Fund(s) or Account(s): N/A                           Fund(s) or Account(s):

Recommended Motion: To approve the treasurer to sign the agreement with Point and Pay to
provide credit card processing services for the city.

Commission Meeting Date: March 23, 2021               Title: MATS Micro-transit Funding

Submitted By: LeighAnn Mikesell                       Department: Development Services

Brief Summary: Staff is seeking approval to assist the Muskegon Area Transit System in funding
micro-transit services for our residents.

Detailed Summary: As part of the route study and comprehensive operational analysis conducted by
Muskegon County, one key recommendation was to offer a new type of service often called micro-
transit. This type of service uses smaller vehicles and new technologies for efficient same-day rides
on demand. It is an accessible general public shared-ride transportation service supported and
overseen by MATS and delivered through a qualified contractor. The service more effectively serves
certain geographic areas and times of the day, offering a new option where fixed-route and GoBus
services are reduced or eliminated.

Muskegon County conducted an RFP process to choose a micro transit vendor. The process took
many months, and City Manager Peterson participated in the recommendation committee. A vendor
was selected based on rankings in six criteria described in the original RFP. Micro-transit is
important to residents that do not live within reasonable walking distance to a fixed bus route. The
program works similarly to ride share companies like Uber and Lyft. Residents can request
transportation via a mobile application, a computer, or telephone. Local communities are expected to
cover their prorated share of the total contract. Based on our population, Muskegon’s share in year-
one would be $6,009 per month through March 2022, then $5,889 through June 2022. Residents of
the City of Muskegon are expected to utilize 49% of the service’s capacity – accordingly, our payment
represents 49% of the anticipated monthly costs.

Amount Requested: $71,748                            Amount Budgeted: Will be included with FY
                                                     2021/22 Budget

Fund(s) or Account(s): 101-10875-5371                Fund(s) or Account(s): N/A

Recommended Motion: Approve the financial support for the MATS micro-transit starting in fiscal
year 2021-22 with an estimated expenditure of $71,748.

Commission Meeting Date: March 23rd, 2021              Title: Beach Street Expanded Parking

Submitted By: Leo Evans                                Department: Public Works

Brief Summary:
Staff is requesting authorization to approve the pricing on Bulletin #3 with Hallack Contracting to the
existing Muskegon County / City of Muskegon contract for water main and street reconstruction on
Beach Street between Wilcox and Simpson.


Detailed Summary:
Bulletin #3 includes the updated project design and contract pricing related to our previous discussion
on expanded parking at Pere Marquette Park.

The proposed design matches very closely with the previously reviewed iterations a few items of note
are as follows:

   •   We were unable to save the existing trees. During final layout the trees were found located in a
       position relative to the parking that did not allow for them to be saved by simply gapping
       parking spaces. We further consulted with our staff horticulturist who advised that the trees
       were in a state of decline given the harsh environment which they have lived. Our staff
       horticulturist recommended replacement of the trees with a variety of plantings along the beach
       side of the boardwalk and within the small sand areas that serve as pedestrian crossings. If
       approved we intend to partner with Muskegon Conservation District and our staff horticulturist
       to develop a replanting strategy for the area that includes plantings along the boardwalk and
       within the pedestrian crossing islands. These are not included in the plans before you and are
       intended to be completed by staff in the fall of 2021 or spring of 2022 as nursery availability
       provides.

   •   We retained the angled parking along Beach Street. Staff has reviewed and believes that
       angle parking is the best parking option for this area. Parallel parking would have a lower
       capacity and is generally an equal or greater impediment to thru traffic. As an alternative and a
       short term cost saving measure all of the angled parking along Beach Street could be removed
       from the project and have that area remain as a sand buffer between Beach Street and the
       Parking area. This would eliminate 68 parking spaces from the plans as drawn and reduce the
       construction cost pricing by an estimated $50,000. We could add the angled parking along
       Beach Street at a later date if there was sufficient demand.

Staff anticipates being able to utilize funding from the City of Muskegon CARES Act allocation in
addition to beach parking revenue to be able to support this project.
If approved staff will need to present an amendment to the engineering services agreement with DLZ
to cover the additional engineering and construction administration costs. This is estimated at
approximate $35K and would be brought back for consideration at one of the April meetings,
presuming this request is approved.

If approved staff would need to immediately begin procuring the necessary permits for this work to
ensure the schedule could remain intact and allow for completion of this project prior to the 2021
Beach Season.


Amount Requested: $798,070.71                          Amount Budgeted: $0

Fund(s) or Account(s): 101-91917-5346                  Fund(s) or Account(s): 101-91917-5346

Recommended Motion:
Authorize staff to approve Bulletin #3 with Hallack Contracting in the amount of $798,070.71 and proceed with
the construction of the expanded parking lot at Pere Marquette Park.

Commission Meeting Date: March 23rd, 2021               Title: Amity Avenue Bridge

Submitted By: Leo Evans                                 Department: Public Works

Brief Summary:
Staff is requesting authorization to apply for State of Michigan FY2024 local bridge funds for a project
to remove the Amity Avenue Bridge and rebuild an at-grade road through the area. A resolution of
support is required to include with the application.


Detailed Summary:
Staff applied for this same project during the last two cycles and have both times been just outside the
fundable range. Staff feels that resubmitting the project for consideration is still our best option within
this program. Staff plans to take an extra step and lobby directly at the selection meeting to have this
project considered.

Costs are estimated at approximately $444,000 for the project, with the city requesting to provide
matching funds of $90,000 towards the construction costs and also and estimated $100,000 in
engineering costs for a total city commitment of $190,000. The costs for this project would be borne in
future fiscal years and only if the project is selected for funding.


Amount Requested: $190,000                             Amount Budgeted: $190,000

Fund(s) or Account(s): 203-TBD-5346/5355               Fund(s) or Account(s): 203-TBD-5346/5355

Recommended Motion:
Approve the resolution of support and authorize the Mayor and Clerk to sign and commit to funding the
required match and engineering costs in future fiscal years if the project is selected.

                                  SUPPORT OF
                  APPLICATION FOR BRIDGE PRESERVATION FUNDS


WHEREAS, Muskegon City Commissioners desire to promote safety and fiscal responsibility for
the residents and visitors of our great city; and

WHEREAS, Muskegon City Commissioners acknowledge there is no longer a need for the bridge
carrying Amity Street over the abandoned railroad; and

WHEREAS, Muskegon City Commissioners agree that removing the Amity bridge and rebuilding
the roadway on fill reduces the future costs of maintenance; and

NOW, THEREFORE LET IT BE RESOLVED, that Muskegon City Commissioners support the
application for federal and state bridge preservation funds and commit to funding required
match dollars for removal of the bridge.

        MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION LOCAL BRIDGE FUNDS
              AMITY STREET OVER ABANDONED RAILROAD (SN 7699)

   I.        INTRODUCTION

          The Amity Street Bridge over an Abandoned Railroad grade is the only priority for
          funding for the City of Muskegon. The City of Muskegon is requesting funding for
          a bridge removal project in the 2024 fiscal year. The City proposes to increase
          the local funding match by approximately 21%. A brief description of the bridge
          follows:

                Unknown original construction date, the bridge is a five-span, bridge with
                 an overall length of 100.7 feet.
                The bridge has a clear width of 24 feet and an out-to-out of 31.8 feet.
                The superstructure consists of steel beams with a concrete deck.
                The abutments are concrete cantilever.
                Four-foot sidewalks along each side.
                The bridge railing is an aluminum tube.
                The average daily traffic is 1972 vehicles per day.

   II.       GENERAL CONDITION OF THE BRIDGE

          The following major deficiencies were noted on a 2020 inspection of the Amity
          Street Bridge:

                The bridge is in fair to poor condition.
                Expansion joints are leaking and loose.
                Beam ends are heavily rusted over the abutments with section loss.
                Three beam ends have holes in the webs, north fascia has full section loss
                 along the bottom flange at each end.
                Areas of full paint failure.
                Water leaking through full depth cracks in the deck.
                Areas of deck spalling along the surface.
                Steel sheet piling retaining walls are failing.
                Slope erosion has exposed the abutment footing along the west side.

   III.      NARRATIVE SUPPORTING THE APPLICATION

             A. Contact Person for the City of Muskegon is:

                 Mr. Leo Evans, P.E.
                 Director of Public Works
                 1350 E. Keating Street
                 Muskegon, MI 49442

Amity Street over Abandoned Railroad                                                      1
City of Muskegon
           B. Removal Discussion

           The bridge needs preventative maintenance work or complete removal since
           the railroad below has long been abandoned. The City wishes to remove the
           bridge rather than continual maintenance of the structure. The land beneath
           the bridge is owned by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. They
           have granted the City permission to remove the bridge and replace it with an
           embankment. It is estimated that the preventative maintenance work will cost
           an estimated $547,000 versus removal with embankment and road work cost
           of $444,000. The preventative maintenance work would include a deep deck
           overlay, zone beam painting, beam end repairs, expansion joint replacement,
           railing replacement, sidewalk healer/sealer, slope repair, and approach
           guardrail.

           C. Economic Importance

           The economic importance of the Amity Street Bridge includes the following:

              Neighborhood vehicular and pedestrian access to downtown.
              Alternative east-west route for Apple Avenue.

           D. Existing Detour Impact

           There is no existing detour for this bridge.

           E. Impact of Closed Structure

            If the bridge was closed, motorists and emergency vehicles would have to
            take a 0.25-mile detour.

           F. Structure Maintenance

           Unknown maintenance work occurred in 1969.

   IV.     COST BREAKDOWN

           The following is the estimated removal cost for the Amity Street Bridge, SN
           7699.

                   ITEM                           ESTIMATED COST
                   Approach Construction          $284,000.00
                   Structure Construction         $160,000.00
                   Total (A&B)                    $444,000.00
                   Local Funding Match            $90,000.00
                  Note: The City of Muskegon will provide a match of nearly 20%, up to
                  $90,000 of the estimated construction cost.

                               Project Proposal
            Prepared for: City of Muskegon Zoning Board/Planning Office

                                   March 12, 2021




Lake Effect Sport, LLC is a Muskegon bike rental company seeking to provide rental of
 custom pedal and electric bikes in the City of Muskegon. Specifically, at a designated
   location within the City, Pere Marquette Beach. We have developed the following
project proposal to provide the necessary information for the City of Muskegon Zoning
    Board/Planning Office as Lake Effect Sport LLC moves through the zoning and
         permitting process to add this satellite location to our business model.

                        |​https://www.lakeeffectsportrentals.com/
                                                                                            2




                                   Company Description

Lake Effect Sport (LES) is a locally owned bike rental and repair shop that provides
affordable hourly, daily, and weekly bike and electric bike rentals. We are equipped to
outfit the whole family with a variety of adult and youth bikes. Our goal is to offer an
affordable and adventurous outdoor activity for our residents and visitors alike. By
having our bike rentals at Pere Marquette beach, we believe it will help enhance and
increase activity in the area and offer amenities similar to what other beach town
communities offer to their guests.




                                    Proposed Location

As mentioned above, Lake Effect Sport is requesting permission to set up and rent out
our custom bikes at Pere Marquette Beach. If this request is granted, we would be
seeking seasonal use in a location ideally located south of the chalet and closer to The
Deck and Indiana Street to ensure the safety of our riders as well as increase visibility
due to the location of the restaurant, playground, pier, and concessions. (See images
below)


                                       Specifications

At minimum, LES will require designated space for our renters to be fitted on their bikes,
fill the tires, and perform a brief pre-ride checklist while also allowing for our guests to
safely enter and exit the road/path smoothly without competing with vehicles backing
out in the parking lot. A location on asphalt would be ideal as we will be bringing a bike
rack and a small tent/canopy for shelter. We will be transporting the bikes daily using our
truck and small trailer and storing them in our Lakeside building overnight.
                                                                                             3




                                    Hours of operation

Lake Effect Sport would like to operate at the beach during the months of May- October
2021. Seasonal start and end dates are weather dependent.To start,rentals would be
available at the beach on weekends between the hours of 10am-6pm. During the peak
months of June, July, and August we would tentatively operate Wednesday-Sunday
10am-6pm. This would be a trial period in hopes of determining public interest and
community support. LES will employ at least one trained staff member to oversee the
Pere Marquette Beach location and will always be reachable on the provided cell phones
or by contacting the shop at 1929 Lakeshore Drive.



All administrative aspects of Lake Effect Sport’s business will occur at their Lakeside
location at 1929 Lakeshore Drive, Muskegon, MI 49441.


There are currently no bike rental activities located at Pere Marquette Beach and we
believe our business will be a great addition to not only the beach but to the nearby
neighborhoods that include local cyclists and many short-term rental visitors. As a
growing tourist town, we believe it is vital to offer a variety of activities to encourage
engagement in the community and ways to easily experience all that Muskegon has to
offer on and offshore. Our vision for the area is to promote tourism and community
engagement while bringing awareness and interest to our slice of paradise.



Thank you for your consideration of Lake Effect Sport’s proposal to rent bikes at Pere
Marquette Beach and for the opportunity to help contribute to the growth and progress
of our community while offering a fun, healthy, and affordable activity for residents and
visitors to the Muskegon area.

Proposal for eFoil and Wing Foil Lessons at Pere Marquette Beach Chalet



To: City of Muskegon Department of Public Works
Re: Beach Chalet, located south of U.S. Coast Guard Station
For: MACkite eFoil and Wing Foil lessons



Electric hydrofoil (eFoil) boards are ridden on the water, similar to a surfboard, in either the standing or
kneeling position. They are battery-powered, silent to operate, and produce zero emissions.

The rider controls the onboard propulsion system with a wireless handheld remote. Boards weigh around 50
lbs and are transported to and from the water by hand.

Please click below to watch electric hydrofoils being ridden:

Wing foiling (wind-powered) is similar to eFoiling, except that they are powered by a small sail that is held by
the rider (images attached).


Rent: $2000.00 annual + 5% gross sales.

                                                           1
Note:

     •   Lesson students will be accompanied by experienced MACkite staff at all times.
     •   Lessons ONLY—NO rentals.



Thank you for your time and consideration.

Sincerely,

Steve Negen

Hearing, Case 2021-06: Request to amend Section 2331 of zoning ordinance to allow the following marihuana related
license types at 420 S Harvey St, by Corey Roberts: Recreational class b growing, processing, retail, designated
consumption establishments and special events.

SUMMARY

   1. The applicant applied in October 2020 to amend the ordinance to allow for microbusiness, designated
      consumption establishment and special event license types at this same location. The case was tabled and
      eventually denied (2-7 vote by Planning Commission. City Commission denied by a 0-5 vote). At the December
      hearing where it was denied, the applicant had also applied for a new case where they were requesting to
      amend the ordinance to allow for growing, processing, provisioning, retail, designated consumption
      establishments and special event license types at this same address. The motion to recommend approval to
      the City Commission failed again 2-7. The motion to adopt the amendment passed by a 5-0 vote at the first City
      Commission meeting, however, a second reading was required and a motion to pass the amendment failed 0-
      5. This was after the applicant spoke to the Commission about ownership issues.
   2. The applicant has stated that there are no more ownership issues associated with the property and is
      requesting the same license types they applied for in December.
   3. Notice was sent to properties within 300 feet of this property. At the time of this writing, staff had not received
      any comments.

2171 Hudson St from R-1, Low Density Single Family Residential to Form Based Code, Urban Residential by Stephen
Benedict.

SUMMARY

   1. The properties are zoned R-1, Low Density Single Family Residential and measure 1.3 acres combined.
   2. The City of Muskegon owns 2169, 2171, 2184 Hudson St and 2172 Dowd St (mechanical tower site). A
      private citizen owns 2157 Hudson St and is willing to sell the property to the applicant on the condition of
      rezoning. (See aerial map with addresses). The applicant is planning a development that would include
      duplexes.
   3. The area is identified by a mixture of residential zoning types and offers a variety of housing options such
      as single family, duplexes and large apartment complexes. (See zoning map and aerial map)
   4. A former fire station was located on 2171 and 2184 Hudson St. It was demolished in 2002 and the
      property has sat vacant since.
   5. The mechanical tower on 2172 Dowd St is no longer functional and options are being explored to remove.
   6. The FBC, UR zoning designation would allow for single-family, duplexes, rowhomes and carriage houses
      (accessory dwelling units). It would not allow for small multiplexes because the lots are not serviced by
      an alley.
   7. Notice was sent to properties within 300 feet. At the time of this writing, staff had not received any
      comments from the public.
