RE: 2011 Parking Fine Adjustments


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Parking violation fines were last adjusted in 2006.

amounts.

FINANCIAL IMPACT: Staff anticipates the revised parking fine structure will
generate $15,000 in revenue

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None at this time.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Approval of the recommended increases in
parking fines effective immediately.

COMMITTEE RECOMMENDATION: None.

RE: Five-Year Contract for Copiers/Printers


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The City’s current contract for copiers/printers expires in December.
Staff recently conducted a review process to identify the company best suited to meet the City’s
document management needs for the next five-years. This process included in-depth interviews with six
companies conducted by a panel of City staff. Companies were ranked by the panel prior to the opening
of price proposals. Rather than simply focusing on replacing the current equipment fleet at the lowest
cost, we focused instead on finding the company that could provide the best overall value to the City in
terms of analyzing our needs and recommending cost-effective and flexible document management
solutions for our rapidly changing organization.

Following is a summary of the results of this process, including comparative pricing for replacement of
the current equipment fleet. Staff is recommending that Applied Imaging be selected and that staff be
authorized to work with them to modify and optimize the copier and printer equipment placed at the City.




FINANCIAL IMPACT: Staff anticipates the new contract will save $40,000 per year over current
costs. In large part this is due to lower copy/printing volumes and reduced equipment needs as staff has
downsized and technology has made document scanning/distribution more pervasive.

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION:                   Authorize staff to enter into a five-year agreement with Applied
Imaging


                                                                                           1

RE:          Youth Basketball League and Open Gym
             Proposal- Muskegon Public Schools


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The City of Muskegon contracted with the Muskegon
Public Schools (“Schools”) for the 2010-2011 school year to provide management of
the Youth Basketball League and Open Gym & Swim (formerly supervised by the
City Leisure Services Department). The program was successful (see attached
report) and the Schools would like to manage the program for the 2011-2012 school
year. In fact, they are prepared to start the program this October. The Commission
is requested to approve the attached proposal and authorize staff to enter into an
agreement with the Schools for oversight of the basketball program and the Open
Gym program.

FINANCIAL IMPACT: The actual program cost was greater than expected in 2010-
2011, particularly due to the costs of keeping the pool available for Open Swim (due
to State requirements for a pool custodian, cleaning locker rooms, and lifeguards).
However, the Schools can maintain the 2010-2011 costs of $18,500, if there is no
Open Swim.

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: Funds are available through the Leisure Services
budget.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To approve the “Youth Basketball League and Open
Gym Proposal” and authorize staff to enter into a formal agreement with the Schools.

                          Youth Basketball League Proposal



From: Muskegon Public Schools
To: The City of Muskegon

        Muskegon Community Education is continually looking for new ways to “reach
out and change lives” in our community. Collaborating with the City of Muskegon to
offer safe, positive after school recreational opportunities for our students offers that
opportunity. Last year's Youth Basketball and Open Gym and Swim program established
a successful foundation to sustain this collaborative effort. Based on a review of
expenses our current proposal is as follows:


       1) The MPS Youth Support Services Office located @ MCEC, Room 214 would
          administer the following programs: Open Gym, and the Youth Basketball
          League. These programs would run between October 2011 and March 2012.
       2) The City of Muskegon would contribute $18,500 towards this partnership.
          The money would be used for the following: program administration and
          supervision, custodial services, supplies/materials and support personnel (i.e.
          referees).

       Program Descriptions:

       Youth Basketball League

       1) Boy’s and girl’s basketball seasons would run consecutively for a six-week
          regular game schedule and a two-week tournament schedule to conclude the
          season.
       2) Student registration fee would remain at $25 per student to include: game t-
          shirt and trophies tournament champion team. (Shorts can be purchased for an
          additional $7.)
       3) Muskegon Community Education will accept responsibility for all
          administrative and supervisory obligations for the Youth Basketball League
          program.
       Open Gym

       1) Open Gym will be offered for three hours every Saturday for an eight-week
          period of time.
       2) Muskegon Community Education will accept responsibility for all
          administrative and supervisory obligations for the Open Gym program.


Muskegon Public Schools looks forward to further conversation regarding this proposal.
It is in the interest of both agencies that we offer quality programming to our community
without duplicating services.




       It is the policy of the Public Schools of the City of Muskegon that no person shall, on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin or ancestry,
        sex, age, disability, height, weight, or marital status be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination
           during any program or activity or in employment. If you feel you have been discriminated against, please contact the Office of the Assistant
                                 Superintendent of Human Resources, 349 W. Webster Avenue, Muskegon, MI 49440 (231) 720-2000
