Marilyn Holje, MMC
Centerville City Recorder
To: Mayor Russell
From: Steve Thacker, City Manager
Subject: City Manager’s Summary of January 2, 2008 Council Meeting
Date: December 28, 2007
6:30 Swearing-In Ceremony – The agenda for the Swearing-In Ceremony is enclosed. Judge Miller will administer the Oath of Office to Ken Averett, Paul Cutler and Lawrence Wright. A reception in the lobby at 6:00 p.m. will precede the ceremony.
7:00 Regular City Council Meeting
E.1. Minutes – The minutes to be approved are enclosed.
E.2. Summary Action Calendar
a. South Davis Recreation District Board Appointment – The Mayor’s current term on the Recreation District Board expires December 31, 2007. The City Council needs to either reappoint Mayor Russell or appoint another representative as allowed by law.
b. Utility Fee Waiver for Military Personnel - Action on this resolution was postponed from the last meeting to allow staff to define eligibility more precisely. That has been done in the enclosed Resolution No. 2008-02. Eligibility requires active duty deployment to a foreign country in the fight against terrorism.
c. Reappoint Justice Court Judge – The State Administrative Office of the Courts has recertified David Miller for reappointment as the Centerville Justice Court Judge. Based on this recommendation from the State, Judge Miller is entitled to reappointment unless the City Council believes there is sufficient cause for him not to be reappointed. I believe Judge Miller has an excellent reputation and administers a fair court. Therefore, I support his reappointment.
E.3. Consider Drainage Agreement with Matt Green – Matt Green represents the owners of five parcels west of I-15 and south of Parrish Lane. This property is significantly affected by wetlands which have been created at least in part by surface runoff from the area east of I-15. In order to develop this property, this runoff needs to be intercepted and diverted from the property via a new drainage facility. Matt Green is willing to construct this new facility but has asked for future credits against storm drain impact fees that would be assessed to his development on this property. Staff believe this is a fair and proper request and recommend the City enter into an agreement with Matt Green for this purpose.
E.4. Appointment of Council Members – With the seating of a new Council, a Mayor Pro Tem should be selected to replace David Gutke. The Mayor and Council should also review the current appointments to various other organizations and determine if any changes should be made. In particular, former Council member Jack Dellastatious should be replaced as a representative to the Davis Chamber of Commerce and as vice president of the Municipal Building Authority. Marilyn has prepared the enclosed list of City appointments to various organizations.
E.5. Mayor’s Report – As is practice on a quarterly basis, the Mayor will report on utility bill adjustments approved by him during the past three months.
E.6. City Manager’s Report – Blaine will distribute to the Council the City’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the year ended July 2007. This will give you two weeks to review the report before the auditors make a presentation regarding the report at the January 15 meeting.
I also hope to give you at the meeting my traditional summary of significant projects and issues from calendar year 2007 and a summary of projects and issues I anticipate for 2008. I have not yet prepared this list but hope to do so by Wednesday evening.
E.7. Miscellaneous Business – No business is identified at this time under this heading.
E.8. Closed meeting, if necessary – A closed meeting may not be necessary, but the agenda allows for that possibility.
E.9. Action following closed meeting – The Mayor will have a few recommendations regarding appointments to City boards and commissions.
