Present: Mayor Gawron, Vice Mayor Hood, Commissioners Rinsema-Sybenga, Emory,
Johnson, and German

Absent: Commissioner Ramsey


Alley Paving Policy
The Department of Public Works Director, Leo Evans, presented an Alley Paving Policy
for City Commission consideration. An overview of the process is as follows:

Citizens organize amongst their block and complete a (3) three-page application to
petition the city to have their alley paved. Application requires designation of a Block
Captain to serve as the single point of contact, information on the specific alley, and a
roll for the parcels with alley frontage.

The city staff will review all applications and create a shortlist of alleys to be paved on
an annual basis. Alleys will be reviewed and prioritized based on access, ownership,
utility conditions, use types/frequency, DPW availability for the work, and neighbor
support. Not all alleys are candidates for paving. City staff will communicate with the
Block Captain on the findings and recommendations.

Unanimous support is not necessary to proceed, however majority support is
necessary, and the higher the support the higher the priority.

Once an alley is selected the Block Captain is responsible to collect the fees associated
with the paving request and deliver them to the City. Once paid the City will schedule
the work during the available paving season (May – October) based on staff availability.
Work will take approximately 1 week to complete and residents are asked to minimize
their use of the alley during the work.

Alley paving will consist of a singe 12 FT wide late at approximately 2 inches thickness
asphalt. No flare outs or widening will be constructed. Any additional work to extend
existing paved driveways to meet the paved alley is the homeowners responsibility. City
will maintain the alley for its useful life, when full replacement is warranted the process
must be restarted.

Discussion took place regarding the proposed policy. This item will be considered at a
regular meeting in the future.

Draft Deer Hunting Ordinance
Department of Public Works Director, Leo Evans, presented a draft deer hunting
ordinance for City Commission Consideration. An overview of the process is as follows:

Parcels would apply for status as a designated Deer Management Area (DMA). Staff
would review applications and present a recommendation to the Commission for
approval. Staff would review the following in determining their recommendation:
    • Size of parcel (Minimum 5 Acres between maximum of 2 parcels)
    • Appropriate areas within the parcel
    • Number of hunters
    • Shooting Direction
    • Duration of DMA designation
Public and/or Private parcels could be considered for DMA status; combined public and
private parcels, to meet the 5-acre minimum, would not be considered.

Hunters are required to meet all MDNR rules and regulations, only archery hunting is
allowed and only during MDNR approved archery seasons. A legal MDNR harvest tag
must be possessed by the hunter and used if a deer is harvested.

Hunting within a public land DMA requires issuance of a permit from the City. A city
issued permit is not required for private land.
150 FT setback required from any public building, street, and DMA perimeter is
required.

Hunters may not trespass for any reason.

Discussion took place regarding the proposed ordinance. This item will be considered at
a regular meeting in the future.

ARP Infill Housing Program
City staff has developed and released a Request for Qualifications for homebuilders to
participate in our ARP Infill Housing Program. We received a total of four responses.

Staff is recommending that all four builders be selected to submit formal proposals to
construct homes as part of the ARP Infill Housing Program. LRS Enterprises submitted
to construct five homes; Williams Construction submitted to construct six homes;
Kramer Builders submitted to construct three homes, and West Urban Properties
submitted to construct the full $5 Million program. We are using a rough estimate of
$250,000 per home, the actual costs will be determined as the builders bid their specific
projects with their subcontractors. The breakdown will look something like this:
Builder/Developer               City ARPA Funds                 Developer Funds
LRS Enterprises                 $750,000                        $750,000
Williams Construction           $750,000                        $750,000
Kramer Builders                 $250,000                        $250,000
West Urban Properties           $3,250,000                      $3,250,000

Discussion took place regarding the ARP Infill Housing Program. This item will be
considered at the September 14, 2021 regular City Commission meeting.

Arena Buildout – Carlisle’s
Carlisle’s restaurant is officially moving forward at Mercy Health Arena. Staff is seeking
approval to perform the construction activities.

After more then two years of planning, we have started demolition of the front entryway
at the arena to accommodate the facility’s newest restaurant. There are a number of
logistics related to the construction timing that is resulting in a logical path forward that
includes the City managing the construction project and timeline.

There are a number of key milestones that we must hit, including the two greatest
issues: moving doors for the opening of the hockey season in October, and building in
compliance with our liquor license. Our lease with Carlisle’s calls for them to begin
construction after the DDA liquor license is secured – that may take much of October
and is not acceptable to the Lumberjacks. To expedite the process, the Arena is
seeking to undertake and manage the construction efforts. We would enter into the
construction contract with Platinum Construction (Carlisle’s contractor). Carlisle’s
ownership group would then pay us in full once construction is complete. Not that we
have their bank approval letter, and their financing is already set. The buildout will take
8-10 weeks at an estimated cost of $647,202.49.

Discussion took place regarding the Arena Buildout for Carlisle’s. This item will be
considered at the September 14, 2021 regular City Commission meeting.

Marihuana Facilities Update
Jill Montgomery-Keast from Public Health Muskegon County updated the City
Commission on how funding is being used to provide education, communication, and
outreach related to the use of marihuana. The education is harm-reduction focused.
Discussion took place about partnering with the Health Department on the education
campaign.

Mike Franzak, Planning Manager, updated the City Commission on Social Equity grants
that have been awarded. Two have been awarded. Mr. Franzak also provided some
suggested amendments to the Social Equity grant program. The Planning Department
is also working the County Clerk to hold an expungement clinic.
Mike went on to provide the Commission with some suggested Zoning changes that will
be discussed at an upcoming Planning Commission meeting. The suggestion includes
some rezoning in the Lakeside area to allow for certain marihuana license types. The
current zoning in that area does not allow for most of these types of businesses.

Public Comment – No public comments were received.

Adjournment – The Worksession meeting adjourned at 8:36 p.m.

                                       Respectfully Submitted,

$25,000 transferred from the General Fund and the Public Service Building
needs an additional $425,000 transferred from the General Fund.

Based on financial results for the fiscal year end June 30, 2021 the Mercy

from the General Fund then what was budgeted in the 4th quarter reforecast,
to prevent a fund deficit. The Mercy Health Arena fund needs to be

  D. Western Avenue ADA Work          Public Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting authorization to partner on several
projects along Western Avenue to improve the ADA Access throughout the
corridor.

The City Commission allocated $200,000 towards ADA work in the FY 21/22
budget as shown in line 101-91116. City staff is proposing a series of partnerships


                                         Page 2 of 15
along Western Avenue to enhance the accessibility and pedestrian experience
along the corridor.

Frauenthal

The Frauenthal is underway installing a snow melt system on the sidewalk in front
of the Frauenthal and the Hilt Building as a part of their capital project which
also includes replacing the ceiling of the Hilt Building basement which is under
the sidewalk. The snowmelt system will be installed, operated and maintained
by the Frauenthal at no cost to the City. Staff is seeking permission to allocate
$120,000 towards the cost of removing and replacing the existing sidewalk in
partnership on the project.

Staff is seeking to utilize the remaining $80,000 towards two projects along
Western Avenue and possibly supplement with additional Major Street dollars if
necessary. An exact split between these two is yet to be determined.

3rd – 4th Block (West Half)

This project will involve removal of several parallel parking spaces along Western
Avenue and widening the sidewalk. Instead of a barrier curb a gutter will be
placed along the edge of the roadway allowing for the area formerly used by
the parallel parking spaces to be either used as additional pedestrian space
and/or parallel parking spaces. This is a half-block long model similar to what
the City of Detroit completed on Bagley Street -
https://detroit.curbed.com/2020/1/16/21068713/bagley-street-mexicantown-
detroit-shared-street The goal is to create a barrier free interface from building
face to building face that can be used as the situation dictates. This would be a
trial concept to prove the notion for later use on a large scale.

1st – 2nd Block (West Half / North Side)

This project would be a partnership with the Leonard to eliminate several angle
parking spaces on Western in front of the Leonard, and several parallel spaces
along 2nd Street adjacent to The Leonard. The goal of this project would be to
offer increased pedestrian and plaza space for use as social district space,
and/or in conjunction with a future restaurant type operation located on the
ground floor of The Leonard.

In all of these projects the split of this $200,000 may not fully fund the project and
additional funds may be required. This proposal is just the first step in funding
each of these projects.

AMOUNT REQUESTED:             $200,000        AMOUNT BUDGETED:           $200,000



                                           Page 3 of 15
FUND OR ACCOUNT:           101-91116

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:           Authorize staff to utilize the $200,000 allocation
for ADA Projects in partnership with multiple projects along Western Avenue.

  E.   Extension of CHOP Contract        Public Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting authorization to extend an existing
contract with CHOP Tree Service during Fiscal Year 21/22 in the amount of
$75,000 for As-Needed Forestry Services.

The City Commission allocated $75,000 towards Contractual Forestry Work under
line 101-70771-5300 in the 21/22 Fiscal Year. Staff is requesting authorization to
extend our existing contract with CHOP, Inc. who was the low bidder selected
for the same work during the 20/21 Fiscal Year. CHOP, Inc. has been a great
contractor and helped partner with us successfully complete several forestry
projects during the previous fiscal year.

Staff has previously utilized CHOP for work outside of the road right-of-way when
performing tree work on development projects, and for large scale projects
where CHOP can provide increased resources to address large projects
(Lakeside Cemetery & Musketawa Trail).

Staff is requesting to award the $75,000 budgeted to CHOP as an extension for
the 21/22 Fiscal Year and not repost the work for competitive bids. During the
previous bidding cycle CHOP was the only bid accepted. A copy of the bid
sheet submitted during the 20/21 open competitive bidding is provided for
reference.

AMOUNT REQUESTED:          $75,000               AMOUNT BUDGETED:          $75,000

FUND OR ACCOUNT:           101-70771-5300

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:          Authorize staff to extend the existing contract
with CHOP Tree Service in the amount of $75,000 for completion during the
21/22 Fiscal Year.

  F.   Laketon Trail Lighting     Public Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting authorization to award a contract to
J&J Electrical LLC for the construction of lights along a portion of the Laketon
Trail.

Staff solicited bids for a project to install trail lighting on a portion of the Laketon
Trail between Peck and 7th Street. This area is located within the marihuana
district and the existing street lights along Laketon Avenue are all on the south

                                            Page 4 of 15
side of the street, across from the path leading to less than desirable lighting
levels along the pathway in particular at the street crossings. Bids were received
on August 24, 2021 with the low bid coming from J&J in the amount of
$94,037.00.

Staff has not worked with J&J previously and conducted a meeting with them
on August 30, 2021 to assess their understanding of the project and gauge their
ability to complete the work. It is the opinion of staff that J&J fully understands
the project and is appropriately positioned to complete the work as outlined.

The original bid did not include the installation of receptacles on the poles. As
such staff requested a price to add this into the project which wat quoted at
$7,379.00. Adding this amount to the original bid creates a proposed contract
cost of $101,416 which is still below the 2nd lowest bidder.

The funding for this project is derived from the Marihuana Business Fees
collected. Business are required to install decorative lighting on their site or make
a donation to the city to install lighting elsewhere. In 20/21 the City collected
$66,965 from this fee with anticipation of collecting an additional $30,000 during
the current fiscal year. Staff felt that the use of the lighting on the path in the
marijuana district improved an existing problem and also focused those dollars
back to the primary area that generated the revenue. The project will need to
be included in a future reforecast of the budget if approved.

J&J Electrical LLC is located within the City of Muskegon.

AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $101,416.00         AMOUNT BUDGETED:          $0

FUND OR ACCOUNT:          101

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:           Authorize staff to approve a contract with J&J
Electrical LLC in the amount of $101,416.00 for the construction of a pedestrian
lighting system along the Laketon Avenue Trail between Peck and 7th.

  G. Police Cruiser Replacement         Public Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The Equipment Division is requesting permission to
purchase three (3) Chevy Tahoes to replace existing vehicles in the Police
Department fleet.

Tahoes will be purchased from Berger Chevrolet, the Mi-Deal contract holder.
The price of this vehicle is $38,836.00 each for a total price of $116,508.00
coming from the Equipment budget. These vehicles were budgeted for
replacement in the 21/22 budget.

AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $116,508            AMOUNT BUDGETED:          $117,000

                                           Page 5 of 15
FUND OR ACCOUNT:         Equipment

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:        Authorize staff to purchase three (3) Chevy
Tahoes replacement vehicles for Police Department.

  H. Special Event Fee Waiver Form           Public Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: To amend the current Special Event Fee Waiver Form to
allow some fees to be waived at the staff level.

This is the same application that was presented at the July Work Session. Event
fees under $2,500 would be eligible to be waived at various percentages based
on the answers to the questions on the form. Fees over $2,500 will still go before
the Commission.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:          Approve the revisions to the Special Event Fee
Waiver Application for events scheduled in 2022 and authorize staff to waive
fees for events scheduled in 2022 and authorize staff to waive fees per the
stated requirements when less than $2,500.

  I.   Sanford Street and Glenside Phase 2 Engineering Assistance      Public
       Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting authorization to approve the
Professional Services Agreement with Prein & Newhof to provide comprehensive
engineering services for the design of water and sewer projects schedule for
construction in 2023 and planned for financing within the state revolving loan
fund programs during state fiscal year 2022.

Staff is planning to pursue two (2) primary water/sewer projects as a part of the
State of Michigan Revolving Loan programs (DWRF/SRF) during the State 2022
Fiscal Year. These projects would be constructed during 2023.

Sanford Street

This is the last phase of a three-phase project of which Prein & Newhof has
completed the prior two phases. The first was completed in 2020 and included
work on several alleys in additional to work on Jefferson and Strong. The second
was completed in 2021 and included work on Peck Street. This project will
include complete water/sewer upgrades on Sanford from Merrill south to
Laketon. In addition, staff is proposing to fund the remainder of Sanford Street
north to Apple as ineligible (SRF/DWRF) expense. The project will include a
substantial reduction in the width of Sanford Street (40 Ft – 27 Ft) and is proposed
to replace one of the sidewalks with a bike path that will connect from the
Laketon to Lakeshore Trails.


                                          Page 6 of 15
Glenside Phase 2

The first phase of this project was completed in 2020 and included work on
Westwood Street. This project will be focused on Hadden Street which will allow
for the eventual abandonment of the utilities in the non-existent alley between
Westwood and Hadden.

Both projects are budgeted in the 21/22 budgets and will also have allocations
included in the future 22/23 and 23/24 fiscal years. The two projects represent an
approximately $8.5M Investment of which nearly $2.5M will be forgiven through
the loan program based on our qualification as a disadvantaged community.

AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $862,300      (FY 21/22, 22/23, & 23/24)

AMOUNT BUDGETED:          $400,000      (FY 21/22)

FUND OR ACCOUNT:          202/590/591

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:         Authorize staff to sign the professional services
agreement with Prein & Newhof to provide Engineering Services for the water,
sewer, road, and bike path projects on Sanford Avenue and Glenside Phase 2.

  J.   Bulk Sticker Fee Adjustment      Public Works

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting Commission approval to adjust the
user fee for Bulk Item stickers from the current rate of $2/EA or 6 for $10 to a new
proposed rate of $3/EA and 4 for $10.

Staff is planning to increase the user fee for bulk item stickers and begin to offer
free bags with the purchase of a sticker. Residents purchasing a sticker would be
able to take one bag per sticker. Two bag options would be provided; a heavy
duty 60-gallon bag for miscellaneous items; or a larger thin bag for wrapping a
mattress. The hope is this program will save someone from having to make
separate stop to purchase bags and stickers and make it into a single stop
operation.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:           Authorize a change to the Bulk Item Sticker
pricing in the user fee schedule to $3 per each or 4 each for $10.

  K. Amendment to the Floodplain Management Ordinance                  Planning

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff-initiated request to amend Sections 26-401
through 26-405 of the City Code of Ordinances to adopt the new Flood
Insurance Rate Map panels from the National Flood Insurance Program.



                                           Page 7 of 15

kitchen from solid to surface, discount kitchen sink, hook up new single-bowl
undermount sink & permits, fees, dumpster.) The accepted purchase price is

  M. ARP Infill Housing Program       City Manager

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: City staff has developed and released a Request for
Qualifications for homebuilders to participate in our ARP Infill Housing Program.
We received a total of four responses.

Staff is recommending that all four builders be selected to submit formal
proposals to construct homes as part of the ARP Infill Housing Program. LRS
Enterprises submitted to construct five homes; William Construction submitted to
construct six homes; Kramer Builders submitted to construct three homes, and
West Urban Properties submitted to construct the full $5Million program. We are
using a rough estimate of $250,000 per home, but the actual costs will be
determined as the builders bid their specific projects with their subcontractors.
The breakdown will look something like this:

Builder/Developer          City ARP Funds               Developer Funds

LRS Enterprises            $750,000                     $750,000

Williams Construction      $750,000                     $750,000

West Urban Properties        $3,250,000                   $3,250,000

qualified builders: LRS Enterprises, Williams Construction, Kramer Builders, and
West Urban Properties to submit formal construction proposals to build a
minimum of 40 new single-family homes as part of the ARP Infill Housing Program
at a cost not to exceed $5 Million.

  N. Arena Buildout – Carlisle’s        City Manager

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Carlisle’s restaurant is officially moving forward at
Mercy Health Arena. Staff is seeking approval to perform the construction
activities.

After more than two years of planning, we have started demolition of the front
entryway at the arena to accommodate the facility’s newest restaurant. There
are a number of logistics related to the construction timing that is resulting in a
logical path forward that includes the City managing the construction project
and timeline.

There are a number of key milestones that we must hit, including the two
greatest issues: Moving doors for the opening of the hockey season in October,
and building in compliance with our liquor license. Our lease with Carlisle’s calls
for them to begin construction after the DDA liquor license is secured – that may
take much of October and is not acceptable to the Lumberjacks. To expedite
the process, the Arena is seeking to undertake and manage the construction
efforts. We would enter into the construction contract with Platinum
Construction (Carlisle’s contractor). Carlisle’s ownership group would then pay
us in full once construction is complete. Note that we have their bank approval
letter, and their financing is already set. The buildout will take 8-10 weeks at an
estimated cost of $647,202.49.

AMOUNT REQUESTED:         $647,202.49         AMOUNT BUDGETED:          $0

FUND OR ACCOUNT:          Arena Fund

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:           Approve the expenditure of $647,202.49 for the
construction of Carlisle’s and amend the budget accordingly to account for
both the expenditure and the reimbursement in the Arena Fund.

  O. Sale – 766 Leonard         Economic Development

The City is constructing this single family detached home as part of our infill
housing program. Our contract to construct two homes was for $425,000, and
the estimated finished costs of this home will be $215,000. We also anticipated
$12,900 in sales commissions. The accepted purchase price is $200,000, and the
incurred sales commissions are $10,000. The City will not contribute funds toward
closing costs outside of the seller’s agent commission. The proceeds of this home
will repay a portion of the Priority Related Investment made by the Community
Foundation for Muskegon County. The sale of the second home in this project
should repay the remainder, and any additional funds will reimburse the
Economic Development Fund for the $75,000 in the project.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:           Authorize the City Manager to complete the sale
of 766 Leonard Street, as described in the purchase agreement.

  E.   Camcar Plastics IFT Public Hearing      Economic Development

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Camcar Plastics has requested an Industrial Facilities
Tax Abatement for a small new construction addition to their shipping and
receiving department at their Glade Street location.

The Tax Incentive Committee has utilized the new Tax Incentive Policy approved
by the City Commission to score and make recommendations on several
incentive applications recently. Camcar has been working with the division to
apply for a Public Act 198 Industrial Facilities Exemption for an 800 square foot
expansion to their current facility at 1732 Glade Street. The incentive allowed an
eligible entity to apply for a 50% cut in their real property tax liability for up to 12
years, as approved by the local unit of government. The applicant has applied
for the full 12-year abatement.

Based on the new policy, due to the taxable value being created ($72,000), the
number of permanent jobs created (3), the Tax Incentive Committee’s scoring
system dictates a recommendation of 9 years of abatement as opposed to the
maximum of 12.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:            To close the Public Hearing and approve the
Industrial Facilities Exemption application for Camcar Plastics for a term of nine
(9) years.

PUBLIC HEARING COMMENCED:               No public comments were received.

  F.    Sun Dolphin Drive Industrial Space IFT Transfer Public Hearing Economic
       Development

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: InSite Real Estate LLC has requested the transfer of an
existing Industrial Facilities Tax Abatement for industrial real property they have
acquired at 1790 Sun Dolphin Drive.

The new owners of these facilities are leasing them back to the new operators of
KL Outdoor, and the facilities onsite are one of several operated locally in the
injection molding company’s portfolio. InSite is currently not listed the listed
owner of the building on the existing Industrial Facilities Exemption and so they
must request a transfer of termination of the incentive. Naturally, they opted for
a request to transfer the real property exemption, which is scheduled to
terminate December 30, 2026.

The new ownership has recently paid some back property taxes and is eligible
to request said transfer.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:            A motion to close the Public Hearing and
approve the Industrial Facilities Exemption Transfer for IIP Muskegon, MI (1790
and 1880 Sun Dolphin) LLC as presented.

applicant has applied for the full 12-year abatement.

Based on the new policy, due the taxable value being created ($600,000), the
number of permanent jobs created (18), the Tax Incentive Committee’s scoring

  C. Aquarium Feasibility Study        Economic Development
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff is requesting authorization to commit funds of the
City to be included in a Feasibility Study as one of two potential locations for the
construction of an aquarium facility in the West Michigan region. The Feasibility
Study would be coordinated by the John Ball Zoo (JBZ) in Grand Rapids and
conducted by Zoo Advisors, Inc.
The JBZ is currently exploring the viability of building a large scale aquarium in
the West Michigan area to compete with similar major marine attractions across

                                          Page 1 of 9
the United States. Staff initiated contact with JBZ officials earlier this Spring to
assess the impact of locating this pivotal tourist destination within the City. The
City is an established tourism and cultural destination throughout the region and
is supported by area educational and Great lakes environmental throughout
the region and is supported by area educational and Great Lakes
environmental research institutions. Exploring the potential of adding a
conservation, research and community education aquatic asset to our
lakeshore community could realize greater social resiliency and further catapult
our local and regional economy’s as a premier national tourism destination. The
City continues to reclaim its former industrial waterfront for a mix of uses
designed to enhance public waterfront access and further connect to our
vibrant downtown and other recreational activities.
Four phases of the 9-12 month Feasibility Study process would include Concept
Development (2-3mo), Preliminary Research Study (3-4mo), Project Modeling (2-
3mo), and Economic Impact (2mo). Results of the Study would further develop
the aquarium concept, assess the operational feasibility of locations in the City
of Muskegon and Kent County, establish attendance estimates, project
preliminary capital investment of construction, and develop economic impacts
associated with construction and operation of the facility in both potential
locations. JBZ has proposed a cost-sharing arrangement for the total cost of the
$227,585 Study. One-third of the fee would be paid by the City of Muskegon,
one-third by Kent County, and the remainder by JBZ.
Based on estimates of a 2018 JBZ Feasibility Study, a $150M aquarium investment
would, at minimum, result in a $100M impact on the regional economies.
According to their website, Zoo Advisors is a full-service planning and consulting
firm focused on helping zoos, aquariums, and conservation organizations
advance their missions, increase impact, and grow sustainability.
The expense will need to be included in a future reforecast of the budget if
approved.

the west side of the Water Filtration Plant. City staff is now recommending that
Ultra Aluminum fencing be used instead of the originally proposed black vinyl
coated chain link fencing. This upgrade will improve the appearance along the
east side of the plant and provide continuity with the existing fencing that was

Staff is comfortable that the revised proposal is appropriate for the site. As previously discussed we
are targeting to spend approximately $900K between Reese & Beukema parks which is drawn from
the Beach Parking revenue. The contract for equipment at Reese has been signed in the amount of
$364,600.00 bringing to total to date to $585,168.25.



Amount Requested:                                     Amount Budgeted:
$220,568.25 TOTAL                                     $0

not rent similar space to new competitor companies during the operating period.

Redistribution. CATMA will work with Gotcha to identify High Priority Areas based on station
usage per day and peak times of usage. Distribution will be critically timed to increase the
probability that each High Priority Area has sufficient bicycles available. Prior to the full launch,
Respondent and the CATMA will agree to designate High Priority Areas. Additionally, Gotcha
and the CATMA will agree to allocate a set minimum of the total bicycle fleet to the various
priority areas specified at peak days and hours.
