1. Ordinances for Introduction

a. Ordinance 2012-27
An Ordinance Amending The Marine Passenger Fee Code.

The current CBJ Marine Passenger Fee (MPF) was enacted by initiative in 1999. This ordinance would make a number of housekeeping changes to the MPF code to update it and keep it in line with the Maritime Security Act of 2002. It would apply the fee to smaller vessels (those carrying more than 20 passengers), and adjust the uses to which the fee can be applied. This ordinance includes a delayed effective date of January 1, 2013, to allow the industry to adjust to the changes.

This ordinance is scheduled for the July 23, 2012 Assembly Committee of the Whole meeting.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

b. Ordinance 2012-29
An Ordinance Authorizing The Manager To Execute A Lease Of A Fraction Of Lot 1, U.S. Survey 3853, Located At The West Juneau Reservoir Site On Douglas Island, To DCS Tower Sub, LLC, For The Operation, Maintenance, And Leasing Of An Existing Communications Tower/Facility
.

Exhibit A                             Notice of Recommendation

This ordinance would authorize the Manager to execute a lease with DCS Tower Sub, LLC (DCS) for the purpose of maintaining, operating, and leasing an existing wireless communications tower/facility located at the West Juneau reservoir site on Douglas Island. The proposed terms and conditions of this lease are similar to those recently approved by the Assembly for the Atlas Tower and ACS leases, allowing for DCS to sublease while sharing the revenues from subleasing with the CBJ. The lease would be executed for a term of five years, with three five-year renewals. The new lease document would update the rent and bring terms and conditions in line with current CBJ leasing practices.

The Planning Commission and the Assembly Lands Committee recommended approval of the lease at the meetings of June 12, 2012 and July 2, 2012, respectively. The Planning Commission, in its Notice of Recommendation (included in packet), suggested two conditions relating to color and review of electromagnetic frequency levels. The Assembly Lands Committee did not include those suggestions in its approval recommendation.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

c. Ordinance 2012-30
An Ordinance Authorizing The Port Director To Negotiate And Execute A Lease To Nowell Avenue Development, Of Alaska Tidelands Survey No. 123, Lot 2, Located At Gastineau Channel, Juneau, Alaska, ADL 1799 At Approximately "0 Douglas Highway."

Exhibit A

Docks and Harbors advertised Alaska Tideland Survey 123, Lot 2, as available for lease. The Nowell Avenue Development, LLC application was the only application received. The lease application was approved by the Docks and Harbors Board Operations Committee on November 15, 2011 and an appraisal was ordered at the expense of the applicant. On January 24, the Docks and Harbors Board Finance Committee recommended an annual rent of $2,271.65, based on the appraisal.

The Board approved the lease at its January 26, 2012 meeting and the lease was forwarded to the Law Department for an ordinance to be drafted. Law determined the application failed to acknowledge the reason for sub-leasing. Nowell Avenue Development was contacted, and on March 9, 2012, Doug Trucano indicated the purpose for leasing is general use and they do not intend to sublease. The Board approved the revised request on April 26.

The Lands Committee recommended this action at its June 11 meeting.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

d. Ordinance 2012-32
An Ordinance Placing On The Next Regular Municipal Election Ballot The Question Of Whether To Extend The Existing Levy And Collection Of A Temporary 1% Areawide Sales Tax On The Sale Price Of Retail Sales, Rentals, And Services Performed Within The City And Borough, Such Tax Extension To Be Effective On October 1, 2013, For A Period Of Five Years, The Proceeds Of Which Are Intended To Be Appropriated By The Assembly For Certain Purposes As Set Forth Herein; And Calling For An Election On Whether Such Sales Tax Shall Be So Levied.

This ordinance would place on the October 2, 2012 municipal election ballot the question of extending the 1% temporary sales tax levy. The current temporary 1% sales tax levy will expire on October 1, 2013. If approved, the temporary 1% sale tax levy would be extended by five years, until September 30, 2018. It is estimated that the temporary tax will generate a total of $44.8 million in sales tax revenue.

The funding is intended to be used for a variety of capital projects. The identified projects include:

• Airport Snow Removal Equipment Facility
• Statter Harbor Haul Out
• Capital Transit Maintenance Shop Renovations
• Bartlett Regional Hospital Child and Adolescent Mental Health Facility
• Dimond Park Library
• Water Filtration
• Sales Tax Budget Reserve
• Juneau Arts and Culture Center Expansion
• Deferred Maintenance to CBJ Buildings and Facilities
• Parks and Recreation Maintenance, Improvements, and Upgrades
• Walter Soboleff Center

The Assembly Finance Committee recommended this action at its July 2, 2012 meeting.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

e. Ordinance 2012-33
An Ordinance Authorizing The Issuance Of General Obligation Bonds In The Principal Amount Of Not To Exceed $25,000,000 To Finance Capital
Improvements To The Facilities Of The City And Borough, And Submitting A Proposition To The Voters At The Election To Be Held Therein On October 2, 2012.

This ordinance would authorize placing on the October 2, 2012 general election ballot the question of issuing $25 million in 20-year General Obligation bonds for the purpose of funding a variety of capital projects. The identified projects include:

• Airport Terminal Phased Remodel
• Aurora Harbor Phase II
• Capital Transit Bus Storage, Administration Renovation, Electronic Fare Boxes
• Eaglecrest Learning Center Construction
• Centennial Hall Major Maintenance and Remodel
• Parks and Recreation Restroom and Concessions Replacement and Paving

If the temporary 1% sales tax is approved by voters during the October general election, the first five years of debt service will be paid by sales tax. Beginning in FY19, the debt service would increase by .39 mills. This amount of debt service would require an annual property tax levy of approximately $39 (.39 mills) per $100,000 of assessed value, or approximately $136 for the average single-family home (estimated 2018 value $349,000 per CBJ Assessor).

If the temporary 1% sales tax were not approved by voters during the October general election, the FY14 debt service would increase by .42 mills. This amount of debt service would require an annual property tax levy of approximately $42 (.42 mills) per $100,000 of assessed value, or approximately $139 for the average single-family home (estimated 2012 value $332,000 per CBJ Assessor).

The Assembly Finance Committee recommended this ordinance be forwarded to the Assembly at its July 2, 2012 meeting.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

f. Ordinance 2012-20(B)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $71,040 As Funding For The Parks And Recreation Department To Design, Manufacture, And Install Kiosks And Interpretive Signs In The Auke Bay Area. Funding Provided By The Alaska Department Of Transportation And Public Facilities National Scenic Byways Grant Program.

This ordinance would appropriate a $71,040 grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities to design, manufacture, and install kiosks and interpretive signs at the Auke Bay Ferry Terminal, Auke Lake Wayside, and Auke Lake Trail. These kiosks would provide information on cultural and recreational resources accessible from the Alaska Marine Highway, which has been designated a National Scenic Byway. This project would also design and produce 5,000 tri-fold color brochures, which would include a map of area trails.

The required grant match has been met by construction of the Auke Lake Trail.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

g. Ordinance 2012-20(C)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $16,500 As Funding For Planning, Development, And Installation Of Historical Interpretive Signs And Planning And Design Of An Interpretive Shelter For The 5-Stamp Mill At The Treadwell Mine Historic Park. Grant Funding Provided By The Alaska Department Of Natural Resources, Office Of History And Archaeology.

This ordinance would appropriate $16,500 from the State of Alaska Office of History and Archaeology (DNR) for planning, developing, and installing historical interpretive signs, and planning and design of an interpretive shelter for the 5-Stamp Mill at the Treadwell Mine Historic Park.

The proposed project would plan, develop, and install historical interpretive signs and plan and design an interpretive shelter for the 5-Stamp Mill located on CBJ-owned property as part of the Treadwell Mine Historic Park. The product of the project will be at least two interpretive signs similar to those recently installed throughout the Treadwell Mine Historic Park. The signs would assist locals and visitors in understanding the history of the Treadwell Gold Mine and specifically the role of the 5-Stamp Mill. In addition, a design for a protective shelter for the mill would be designed to be constructed as a later phase of the project.

The work of the project would be performed through the combined efforts of a graphic designer, writer/editor, and sign manufacturer. Volunteers of the Treadwell Historic Preservation and Restoration Society would assist with planning, developing, and installing the signage and planning and designing the shelter. The Historic Resources Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Department would review the draft and final products. The total project costs are estimated to be $27,500, 60% ($16,500) and would be funded from a federal Historic Preservation Fund grant administered by the Alaska Office of History and Archaeology. The remaining 40% ($11,000) of the project budget would be funded by in-kind services of volunteers of the Treadwell Historic Preservation and Restoration Society.

The Historic Resources Advisory Committee recommended this action at its February 1, 2012 meeting. The Assembly Lands Committee will review this ordinance at its July 23, 2012 meeting.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

h. Ordinance 2012-20(D)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $5,000 As Additional Funding For Review Of The Safe Routes To Schools Plan. Funding Provided By The Alaska Department Of Transportation And Public Facilities.

CBJ was awarded a $45,000 Safe Routes to Schools (SRTS) Grant from the Alaska Department of Transportation (DOT). Grant funds were used to hire a consultant to conduct a public process, create a Safe Routes to Schools plan, and make program and infrastructure recommendations to implement the plan.

Public review of the SRTS plan has been completed and Sheinberg and Associates is finishing the updated version.

DOT, Safe Routes to Schools Program, is granting the CBJ an additional $5,000 in SRTS funds to cover the cost of review of the draft plan by DOT staff.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

i. Ordinance 2012-20(E)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $3,500,000 As Funding For Construction Of The Aurora Small Boat Harbor Re-Build Project. Funding Provided By The Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, Municipal Harbor Facility Grant Program And From The Harbors Enterprise Fund Balance.

Award Letter

This ordinance would appropriate a $2 million state grant for Phase 1 of the Aurora Small Boat Harbor rebuild project with a required $2 million local match. The total cost estimate for this phase of the project is $4 million.

The funding would be used to replace failing infrastructure of the current facility including new piling, floats, electrical wiring, pedestals, water lines, and hydrants. Phase 1 would complete the main transfer bridge, gangway, main float, and head float A and B including mooring finger floats.

The Docks and Harbors Board recommended accepting this $2 million grant at its June 28, 2012 meeting. The Board will be holding a special meeting to review the transfer and appropriation of funds needed to provide the $2 million match.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

Reappropriation                        COW Minutes

This ordinance would appropriate $2,972,785.02 in grant funds provided by the Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development (DCCED) to support development of the upper modified corridor alignment related to the West Douglas Highway extension through CBJ property.

The State Legislature recently approved a transfer of $2,972,785.02 for this project from the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (DOT) to the DCCED. The purpose of this transfer was to allow for a DCCED grant to the CBJ. The grant will simplify the expenditure process and remove DOT overhead and oversight of the project.

I recommend this ordinance be introduced and set for public hearing at the next regular Assembly meeting.

2. Resolutions

a. Resolution 2615
A Resolution Authorizing The Manager To Lease A Fraction Of U.S. Survey 381 And A 12,000 Square Foot Portion Of Lot 4, U.S. Survey 381, Located Near The Intersection Of Hurlock Avenue And Mendenhall Loop Road, To Juneau Youth Services, Inc., At No Cost, In Support Of The Cornerstone Emergency Shelter.

Exhibit A-Map

This resolution is companion legislation to Ordinance 2012-25, under Public Hearing, and waives a fee for the lease.

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee recommended this action at its April 3, 2012 meeting. The Lands Committee (April 30, 2012) and the Planning Commission (June 12, 2012) recommended a 50-year lease for this project.

The current facility is located on property that the CBJ leases to JYS. The replacement facility is proposed on an expanded lease site, including an approximately 12,000 square foot portion of Jackie Renninger Park. The authorization of a lease for the project area will demonstrate site control and otherwise assist the project. The design life of the replacement structure is anticipated to be 50 years, which is the recommended duration for the lease term

I recommend this resolution be adopted.

3. Liquor Licenses

a. Liquor License - Transfer

Southern-Odom Wine and Spirits and Alaska, LLC d/b/a Southern Wine & Spirits of Alaska – Wholesale General Liquor License #4859.

This ownership transfer is in fact transferring the ownership, not of the license, but rather a transfer of ownership of the parent company of the licensee. Please see the organizational chart that is part of the liquor license application form for complete details.

This matter is before the Assembly to either protest or waive its right to protest this transfer of ownership. The Finance, Police, Fire, and Community Development Departments have reviewed the above business and found it to be in compliance with CBJ Code.

In the event the Assembly does protest the above-mentioned liquor license, CBJ Code 20.25 requires notice, with specificity regarding the nature and basis of the protest, to be sent to the licensee and provides the licensee an opportunity to exercise their right to an informal hearing before the Assembly.

I recommend the Assembly waive its right to protest the above liquor license action.

VIII. PUBLIC HEARING

The current facility is located on property that the CBJ leases to JYS. The replacement facility is proposed on an expanded lease site, including an approximately 12,000-square-foot portion of Jackie Renninger Park. This authorization of a lease for the project area would demonstrate site control and otherwise assist the project. The design life of the replacement structure is anticipated to be 50 years, which is the recommended duration for the lease term. Resolution 2615 companion legislation to this ordinance and waives a fee for the lease.

The Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee recommended this action at its April 3, 2012 meeting. The Lands Committee (April 30, 2012) and the Planning Commission (June 12, 2012) recommended a 50-year lease for this project.

IX. UNFINISHED BUSINESS

X. NEW BUSINESS

A. Ceder Appeal Of Planning Commission Acting As The Board Of Adjustment Notice Of Recommendation Of Text Interpretation TMI2012-0003 Regarding A Variance To Housing Density, Dated June 15, 2012.

Notice of Appeal                 Staff Report            Notice of Decision           Revised Notice of Decision

On June 15, 2012, the Planning Commission acting as the Board of Adjustment issued a final decision and determined that the Land Use Code would not allow the Planning Commission to consider Variance VAR2012-0005, because approval would result in a variance to housing density, which was not within the power of the Board of Adjustment to grant. The petitioner, Len Ceder of Ceder Revocable Trust, filed a timely Notice of Appeal of this decision with the Municipal Clerk’s Office on Tuesday, June 26, 2012.

The Notice of Appeal and the Notice of Decision are in your packet. The Assembly is the appeal agency for this appeal, and its actions throughout the appeal process are governed by CBJ 01.50, the Appellate Code. The Code requires that upon receiving an appeal, the Assembly must first decide whether to accept or reject it. The standards applicable to this decision are set out at CBJ 01.50.030(e):

(e) Action by Appeal Agency Upon Receipt of a Notice of Appeal.
(1) Within thirty days of receipt of a notice of appeal by the appeal agency, the appeal agency shall notify the appellant of the acceptance or rejection of the appeal and, if rejected, the reasons for the rejection.
(2) The notice of appeal shall be liberally construed in order to preserve the rights of the appellant. The appeal agency may reject the appeal for failure to comply with these rules or if the notice of appeal does not state grounds upon which any of the relief requested may be granted.

The appellants, the permit holder, and the Planning Commission have been advised that this matter is before the Assembly.

The following procedural issues should be decided:
1. Will the Assembly accept the appeal?
2. Will the Assembly hear the appeal itself or assign to a hearing officer?
3. If the Assembly hears the appeal itself, will the Mayor preside, or will he designate another member as presiding officer?

This matter is before the Assembly sitting in its quasi-judicial capacity. Accordingly, members should avoid discussing the case outside the hearing process.

With respect to this issue, the Appellate Code provides as follows:

CBJ 01.50.230 IMPARTIALITY. The functions of hearing officers and those appeal agency members participating in decisions shall be conducted in an impartial manner with due regard for the rights of all parties and the facts and the law, and consistent with the orderly and prompt dispatch of proceedings. Hearing officers and appeal agency members, except to the extent required for the disposition of ex parte matters authorized by law, shall not engage in interviews concerning the appeal with, or receive evidence or argument on the appeal from, a party, directly or indirectly, except upon opportunity for all other parties to be present. Copies of all
communications with a hearing officer or appeal agency member concerning the appeal shall be served upon all parties.

Because this is an appeal, I have no recommendation on whether or how the Assembly should hear the appeal.

B. E12-240, Juneau International Airport (JNU) Runway Safety Area Improvements, Phase 2A – Bid Award.

Bids were opened on the subject project on July 11, 2012. The bid protest period expires at 4:30 p.m. on July 12, 2012. Results of the bid opening are found on the memo.

Project Description: The Base Bid project consists of relocating the thresholds for Runways 08 and 26; relocating Taxiways B and G; revising Taxiway E; revising lighting and signing to accommodate the new thresholds and taxiways. Additive Alternate No. 1 to the project consists of constructing "wigwags" and runway guard lights at runway/taxiway intersections; rehabilitating the South Seaplane Base road; and constructing a Pavement Sensor System for Runways 08 and 26.

I recommend award of this project to SECON for the Base Bid and Additive Alternate No. 1, in the total amount bid, for an award of $12,348,732.50.

C. Docks and Harbors - Professional Services Contract for Aurora Harbor Re-Build

CBJ Docks and Harbors issued a Request for Proposals for professional engineering, design, bidding, and cost estimating services for the Aurora Harbor Re-Build project. Since the project will be phased depending on funding availability, the RFP provides that the contract may be amended for future phases of the work. The RFP also provides that the contract may be amended for construction administration and inspection services.

Proposals were received from URS Alaska and PND Engineers. The selection committee, comprised of the Port Director, Port Engineer, Deputy Port Engineer, Harbormaster, and two members of the Docks and Harbors Board, unanimously ranked PND Engineers as the top proposer.

PND Engineers, Inc. proposes a fee of $360,555 for services associated with Phase I of the project. The Aurora Harbor Re-Build project includes removal and replacement of the main approach dock; transfer bridge; portions of the head float; main floats, and fingers A and B; electrical system replacement, domestic water system replacement; and installation of a fire suppression system. The first phase of the work is being funded with an ADOT Municipal Harbor Grant and matching funds from CBJ Sales Tax proceeds.

The Docks and Harbors Board recommended this action at its June 28, 2012 meeting.

D. Docks and Harbors – Bid Award for Cruise Ship Terminal Staging Area-Phase I

The bid opened on July 3, 2012. The project includes removal of the existing transfer bridge and dock section adjacent to the Mt. Roberts Tram and construction of new dock section to create a continuous dock and Sea Walk. Funding for this work is provided by the overall funding sources for the cruse ship dock projects, including state passenger fees and port development fees. Trucano Construction has verified its bid and indicated the work can be completed for $1,955,751. The Engineer’s Estimate was approximately $4,000,000.

The Docks and Harbors Board recommended this action at its July 12, 2012 meeting.

E. Docks and Harbors – Consultant Contract Amendment – Cruise Ship Terminal Staging Area Improvements – Phase I

This is an amendment to an existing professional services contract with PND Engineers, Inc. for the Cruise Ship Terminal Staging Area Improvements - Phase I project. PND Engineers, Inc. was selected through an RFP process in July 2010 to perform design services for the Cruise Ship Terminal Staging Area Improvements project. The RFP included a provision to extend services for construction administration services. This contract amendment would extend services for construction administration for Phase I of the project on a time and materials fee basis not to exceed $283,350. The Cruise Ship Terminal Staging Area - Phase I project includes removal of the existing transfer bridge and dock section adjacent to the Mt. Roberts Tram and construction of new dock section to create a continuous dock and Sea Walk. Funding for this work is provided by the overall funding sources for the cruise ship dock projects including state passenger fees and port development fees.

The Docks and Harbors Board recommended this action at its June 28, 2012 meeting.
