1. Ordinances for Introduction

 

a. Ordinance 2012-20(U)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $1,628,164 As Funding For A Habitat Mapping and Analysis Project, Grant Funding Provided By The Alaska Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development.

This ordinance would appropriate $1,628,164 for a Habitat Mapping and Analysis Project of CBJ lands. This project is funded by a grant from the Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development

This project is for the development of LiDAR (light detection and ranging) and Ortho-imagery (aerial photography that is geometrically corrected so that scale is uniform). This imagery will be used to update the Juneau Wetlands Management Plan to identify low-value wetlands appropriate for development, and to develop new stream maps to improve parcel map accuracy and flood management. LiDAR and imagery will be available for other CBJ development projects during and after the four-year grant timeline.

The project would begin in fall 2012 and end in February 2016. The grant budget includes $163,694 for CBJ personnel services and $1,454,470 for contractual services, equipment and other supplies.

There is a no match requirement for this grant.

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

 

b. Ordinance 2012-20(V)
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $7,000,000 As Funding For the State of Alaska’s Designated Legislative Grant Projects For The Dimond Park Library, Grant Funding Provided By The Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development.

This ordinance would appropriate $7,000,000 for an Alaska Department of Commerce, Community and Economic Development legislative grant as partial funding for the Dimond Park Library. This grant represents half of the estimated project cost with the remainder coming from the 1% temporary sales tax ($4.7M), Friends of the Library ($1M), CBJ land contribution ($1M) and the Library Endowment fund ($0.3M)

The Public Works and Facilities Committee reviewed this request at its October 29, 2012 meeting.

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

 

c. Ordinance 2012-20(W)   
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $177,419 As Additional Funding For The Juneau International Airport Runway Safety Area Capital Improvement Project, Grant Funding Provided By The Alaska Department of Transportation.

Economic Impact Note (EIN)

This ordinance would appropriate $177,419 for the Runway Safety Area (RSA) capital project. Grant funding is provided by the Alaska Department of Transportation (ADOT).

This phase of the RSA project includes Design, Engineering, and Construction of approach lighting to runway 8. $23,964,693 has already been appropriated for this phase of the Runway Safety Area project.

The FAA funds 93.75% of the project with the remainder split between ADOT and the Juneau International Airport.

The Airport Board recommended this action at its October 10, 2012 meeting,.

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

 

d. Ordinance 2012-43
An Ordinance Designating Certain Tax-Foreclosed Properties, Located in the Indian Village Subdivision, for Disposal to the Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska, Through a Negotiated Sale.

In August 2011, the CBJ received a clerk’s deed to Lot 7, Block 2, Juneau Indian Village Subdivision and Lot 10, Block 4, Juneau Indian Village Subdivision as a result of delinquent property taxes. Central Council Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska has expressed interest in acquiring the properties for redevelopment and improvement, in conjunction with larger projects that it is preparing for.

Disposal of tax-foreclosed property is addressed in CBJ code (53.09.210) and Alaska Statute (AS 29.45.295-500). The Assembly may identify by ordinance whether to 1) retain the property for a public purpose, or 2) to dispose of the property via a land sale. In a tax-foreclosure land sale, the minimum sale price is typically set at the amount due to the CBJ for delinquent taxes, interest and penalties, rather than fair market value. The amount due for Lot 7, Block 2 is approximately $1,682. The amount due for Lot 10, Block 4 is approximately $1,400.

At its October 15, 2012 meeting, the Lands Committee recommended that the Assembly approve an ordinance that disposes of the two properties to Central Council, through a negotiated sale, for the amount(s) due to the CBJ for delinquent taxes, interest and penalties.

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

 

2. Resolutions

 

Resolution 2630
A Resolution Authorizing the Manager to Apply For, and Enter Into, a Loan Agreement With the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Alaska Drinking Water Fund, State Revolving Loan Fund, for the Eagles Edge Water System Replacement Project.

This resolution would authorize the City Manager to enter into a loan agreement with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Drinking Water Fund, for $300,000, to provide partial funding for the Eagles Edge Water System Replacement project.

The water system replacement project would install a municipal water system in the roadway to replace the existing private water system constructed on private property. The Eagles Edge Homeowners Association owns and maintains the existing private water system. The remainder of the roadways, sewer infrastructure, and storm systems, have already been accepted by the CBJ for Maintenance. After completion of this project, the CBJ would operate and maintain the water system within the subdivision.

The terms of the low interest loans under the Alaskan Revolving Loan Fund program are 20-year repayment at 1.5-percent interest. The project loans will be partially repaid through the formation of a Local Improvement District (LID).

The Public Works and Facilities Committee recommended this action at its October 29, 2012 regular meeting.

I recommend adoption of this resolution.



3. Bid Award

 

13-112 Bio-Solid Containers
Bids were opened on the subject project on Friday October 19, 2012. Upon review of the specification, the award posting occurred on Monday, October 22, 2012. The bid protest period expired at 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, October 23, 2012. Results of the bid opening are as follows:

BIDDER Each Price (5) Extended Price
Wastequip Manufacturing Co. LLC $20,210 $101,050

These containers are being purchased for the purpose of transporting City and Borough bio-solids generated from the wastewater treatment plants. The manufacture of this particular equipment is fairly specialized. It is not unusual in this market to see only one bid response.

With the concurrence of Kirk Duncan, Public Works Director, the Purchasing Division recommends award to Wastequip Manufacturing Company, LLC, on the basis of having the lowest responsive and responsible bid price in the amount of $101,050.00 based on Total Bid.

I recommend bid 13-112 be awarded to Wastequip Manufacturing Company, LLC, based on total bid, for $101,050.

 

4. Liquor License Transfer

Alcohol Bevarage Control Notice

Beverage Dispensary License #1081
Transfer FROM: Auke Bay Inn, Inc. d/b/a Auke Bay Inn
Transfer TO: Shayz, LLC d/b/a Squires
Location: 11806 Glacier Hwy., Juneau, AK

The above-listed liquor license transfer is before the Assembly to either protest or waive its right to protest. 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 transfer, 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 transfer.


VIII. PUBLIC HEARING

 

a. Ordinance 2012-20(T)   
An Ordinance Appropriating To The Manager The Sum Of $5,689,247 As Additional Funding For The Juneau International Airport Runway Safety Area Capital Improvement Project, Grant Funding Provided By The Federal Aviation Administration, And The Juneau International Airport.

Economic Impact Note (EIN)

This ordinance would appropriate an additional $5,689,247 for the Runway Safety Area (RSA) capital improvement project. Funding would be provided by a Federal Aviation Administration grant for $5,500,000 along with a matching grant from Juneau International Airport (JIA) for $189,247. This additional funding brings the total project cost to date to $23,964,693, with further grant funding anticipated.

This portion of Phase 2 of the RSA project includes design, engineering, and construction of approach lighting to runway 8. The FAA funds 93.75% of the project with the remainder being split between Alaska Department of Transportation (pending) and Juneau International Airport. The JIA match represents the value of fill material provided to the Federal Aviation Administration for this project.

The Airport Board recommended this action at its October 10, 2012 meeting.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

 

b. Ordinance 2012-41
An Ordinance Repealing the Sunset Date on the CBJ Hardship Exemption.

When the CBJ hardship exemption, which reduces individual property taxes in cases of financial hardship, was amended in 2010, the Assembly included a sunset date, which would automatically repeal the exemption as of December 31, 2012. This ordinance would repeal that sunset date, making the exemption permanent.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.

c. Ordinance 2012-42
An Ordinance Relating to Shooting Ranges.

CBJ Code 42.20.050 prohibits the discharge of firearms within one-quarter mile of a road within the borough, exempting peace officers in the line of duty. It also has exceptions, allowing the discharge of certain weapons, within the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge, or at the Hank Harmon Rifle Range, the Juneau Gun Club Range, and facilities operated by the state or federal government. This ordinance would change the penal code by adding an exemption to allow the discharge of weapons at private shooting ranges within one-quarter mile of the road if the facilities are permitted consistent with the CBJ Land Use Code, Table of Permissible Uses.

I recommend this ordinance be adopted.
