  3. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS
  4. Don Adams, P.O. Box 21141, co-owner of Island Waterways, an airport shuttle transportation system and also a tour operations for land transportation. He referred to the last meeting of the Assembly when the local Taxi Association came before the Assembly and asked for a revocation of their license to operate on the basis of two claims. One claim was that their vehicles have the wrong color and secondly that they are parked in the wrong place. Mr. Adams testified that this is their fifth year of operation, they have had the same color, electric red, a deep red color, not maroon, and they operate Ford Vans. The Taxi Association said their color conflicted with the Taku Taxi, which is a maroon color. The Taku Taxi Co. has never complained or mentioned to them that they disapproved of their colors. Their vans have a distinctive logo: on the side it says Island Waterways and to the rear of the vehicle, in large lettering, it says Airport Shuttle. He felt it would be difficult to confuse their van with a taxi. The terminal or depot for the parking of the vans is at their private residence, which they have also been doing this for five years and have had no complaints except from the cab companies. They feel the complaint from the Taxi Cab Assoc. is based on competition as they would like to gain a competitive advantage; revocation of Island Waterways license would put them out of business, making more customers for the Taxi companies. Mr. Adams was told by the City Clerk that the issue of the terminal or depot is not a question that involves the for-hire vehicle code but would concern the zoning commission. He spoke with the office about zoning and told them their procedure. The zoning office did not see anything wrong with parking the vans at their own private residence. There are other companies that have for-hire permits who park at private residents such as individual cab drivers. Two cab companies in town operate out of a private residence and have been for longer than Island Waterways has been in business. He asked the Assembly to consider the request by the Taxi Assoc. to be without grounds.

    Mr. MacKinnon said they have had a number of complaints that Island Waterways is picking up fares on the way between hotel and airport shuttles. Mr. Adams said no, they do not do that. Their business is a three fold business: they transport passengers going to the airport from hotels or downtown bed and breakfasts; they pick up people from the airport and transport them down town to either hotels or bed and breakfasts. Permit and regulation does not allow them to pick up fares on a standby basis.

    Mr. MacKinnon asked if people call in to say they need a ride. Mr. Adams said people do call in and ask if they can be picked up on a regularly scheduled route at one of the hotels. Mr. Adams said another factor of their business is the van tour that they provide during the summer. They pick up people at the cruise ship terminal and carry them to the Glacier through the city. A third part of their business is to transport airline crewmembers to the airport. Those are the three things under their permit.

    Mr. Powell invited Mr. Adams to participate as the city works on an ordinance and then subsequent regulations on this issue.

    Elia Adams, P.O. Box 1171, co-owner Island Waterways. They have been in operation five years and they have a permit to sell at the waterfront. This is their forth year taking care of Alaska Airline crewmembers. This is the third year of doing shuttle from airport to downtown hotels and bed and breakfasts. They take care of approximately 15,000 passengers a year. If they had at least 1percent of the customers complaining about their business, that would be 150 region recorded complaints, they would not be in business. They comply with the airport and CBJ regulations; taxes, federal and city; public demand within the limits of their capacity. They have three vans, 1 basically for crews, one for the passenger shuttle and then all of them for tours. They have accumulated 400,000 added miles. They are a mom and pop operation and drive themselves, especially in the winter. She feels that complaints are coming basically from the extreme competition of transportation businesses in town. She asked the Assembly to consider that if there were any mistakes they could be made by irregularities of the airplanes. They do not break the law. They have a sample, in their file, of one month of services taken in 1996 and they collected 130 signatures for only one month. Winters are hard for them, like for everyone in the transportation business. That is why they have diversified their services with three enterprises. They will provide not only transportation but interpretation in various languages and teaching in various languages as well.

    William P. Dunn, 11435 Glacier Highway. He spoke at the last meeting about his dismay at an exchange of a portion of hillside of mature spruce and hemlock for rock fill and a concrete wall. He had met with various city folks and was urged to write a letter, which he did. He wrote a several page letter explaining why he was dismayed and what he thought was lost. He has heard other folks speak as loudly about their concerns about what has occurred. He has still had no response to his letter. To the best of his ability, he had suggested in his letter, three specific suggestions. He had hopes staff would fine-tune his suggestions. He had suggested that staff address their attention to the hillside development section and that they do away with the minor development phrase. In regards to vegetation, they come through with real specific requirements about just exactly where the trees are and how important they are, the associated results. He again requested that the borough respond to his inquiries and effort as a layman to make some specific suggestions. He only made those three specific suggestions by asking seven basic questions about this specific project. They have not been addressed and he does not know what else to do. He hand carried his letter to Ms. Easterwood, Ms. Pierce and Mayor Egan. His family has lived in their home for over 40 years. He has read through letters from his folks who were also trying to prevent the wipe out of the shoreline for residential. They protested the change from residential waterfront to residential waterfront commercial. He asked for a bit more emphasis to be put on homeowners in the area. He pays taxes and this has been his home for a long time.

    Mayor Egan said he did not get a copy of the letter that Mr. Dunn is referring to. Mr. Dunn became quite upset.

    Mr. MacKinnon clarified that Mr. Dunn sent the letter to Ms. Easterwood and Ms. Pierce. Mr. Dunn said he hand carried them. He had an extra copy that he was going to give the Chairman Dybdahl of the Planning Commission but was told it was not necessary as Ms. Easterwood had made a copy for each of the Commissioners. He gave the extra copy to Mayor Egan at the last meeting.

    Mr. MacKinnon said the Assembly meets again in two weeks and Mr. Dunn will have a reply by the next meeting.

    Mr. Powell asked Mr. Palmer to get a copy of the letter to each Assembly member so they could respond prior to two weeks. He said their stacks are deep with letters and it is possible a mistake was made. He apologized for the delay.

    Jeff Arnold, Associated Legislative Director for National Association of Counties, NACO. They are in Juneau, 350 strong, starting on Wednesday for their Western Interstate Region Conference. This annual conference brings together county, borough and parish officials to talk about a lot of issues that are very important to the west and certainly to Alaska. The Natural Resource policy, they believe, is one of the most important elements and one of the challenges and opportunities for the 21st century. They are bring people together in Juneau to talk about some of those things and learn about some of the issues and to make sure they understand the importance of these kinds of things to the economies and the future of western America. They are very glad to be in Juneau and appreciative of the Assembly’s help.

    Mr. Powell asked for the extended agenda and if the sessions were open to the public. Mr. Arnold gave a brief overview of the upcoming days events, workshops and meetings and said they will be meeting at Centennial Hall and all are invited. There is a registration fee associated with the conference and it is open to the public and press.

    3. Bill Ray Center – Status Report

Administrative Report: Attached.

Mayor Egan added that in discussions with Marshall Lind, he and Mr. Palmer made it very clear that no decisions were going to be made, pro or con, until numbers are reviewed and analyzed by the Finance Committee or COW.

Mr. Perkins asked the time line for when this may be brought forward. Mr. Palmer said it would take a couple weeks to pull the information together.

Mr. Kibby asked Mr. Palmer why the change of heart; a few years ago the Assembly was interested in this building. Mr. Palmer said the university wants to build a gymnasium. The legislature authorized them to spend money but they do not have it to spend. They are looking for a source of money.

Mr. Powell said he had the same concern as Mr. Kibby. He said that they acted in good faith the first time around and this time around he hoped they would be operating in good faith and act as partners; this strikes him as very ironic.

Ms. Muñoz asked what the envisioned use of this building would be. Mr. Palmer thought it would be to replace the property that is currently being leased downtown: Municipal Way Bldg. and the Marine View Bldg. The Bill Ray square footage is a little bit larger but an analysis will need to be done to determine usable space. Ms. Muñoz clarified that the Municipal Building would continue to be used by the city and Mr. Palmer said yes, the square footage is needed.

Ms. Hagevig commented that with the acquisition of the parking areas that are predominantly used by CBJ folks in the subport, the parking issue becomes much more critical in addition to the ability for the public to have more access to public oriented departments. Mr. Palmer said that would be looked at as part of the parking study.

Mr. Palmer reported that he and the Mayor would be going back to Washington D.C. the first week in June to shake the tree again with regard to the NOAA project. The Governor sent a letter of support and the CBJ lobbyist, Tony Smith, has been working with the administration and OMB to get some letters from them.

B. Board Liaison Reports

Mayor Egan said the Alaska Committee will meet at 7 a.m. at JEDC on Wednesday.

  1. ASSEMBLY COMMENTS AND QUESTIONS
  2. Mr. Perkins asked Mr. Palmer if he was in receipt of Mr. Dunn’s letter. Mr. Palmer said he spoke with Ms. Easterwood following the last Assembly meeting. She had his letter and he will verify that it has been answered by now.

    Ms. Muñoz received a complaint about trash along the Montana Creek trail, including an old school bus. She asked Mr. Palmer to look into that and let her know so she could respond.

    Ms. Hagevig said as the Host County for the Western Interstate Region Meeting for the National Association of Counties, we are hosting a Salmon Bake on Thursday night starting at 6 p.m. Sponsors have covered the bulk of the expenses for this event and most other events which is greatly appreciated. She asked for an update from the Airport Manager about the letter received from the City of Skayway’s City Manager, Bob Ward, with respect to the prospective passenger facility charge and to get an update on what happened at the Airport Board meeting with respect to implementation.

    Mr. Miller reported that they received several letters which they are putting together for a composite answer. The Airport Board, at it’s meeting last Wednesday, did vote to delay the imposition of the passenger facility charge until October 1st. That was Airport Board action and not staff recommendation. Ms. Hagevig asked if there was any way, if the passenger facility charge was implemented, to use any discretion as to whether or not it gets charged universally to everyone who is travelling between two points so that some of the very small communities have a little more latitude or is that precluded by the FAA. Mr. Miller said the grid if very complex. The Airport staff went forward asking for different exemptions and got far more exemptions than he thought they would. They were able to level the playing field a little bit but it will never be a perfectly level playing field between the helicopter operators because one is off airport and one is on airport. When you start asking for too many exemptions, you start to dilute the system so that it cannot be used the way it is intended. This airport is a municipal airport and the communities that are registering complaints are state owned and operated airports, so they do not have to support their local airport the way we do. Those who benefit from a service are those who should primarily pay for it. Regardless of how much a person paid for their ticket, the runway lights still need to be on, the runway needs to be plowed, the bathrooms need to be stocked with toilet paper.

    Ms. Hagevig asked if the Board discussed the issue that all of these outlying communities actually use our airport either as a destination or as a stopping off place to continue to their final destination and as such, reap some benefit from it. Mr. Miller said the collective answer to the written letters will be going out very soon. Also, he is pleased some people from these communities were at the board meeting so they were able to express their opinion.

    Mr. Powell said that tomorrow is bike to work day and he encouraged all to use an alternative mode of transportation. There will be a celebration outside of the Capital Bldg. at the end of the day.

    Mayor Egan thanked Donna Hatten, Marian Miller and Rosemary Hagevig for all their work on the NACO Conference. He also thanked all the people at the Municipal League and JCBB.

    Mayor Egan said there was a letter from Mr. Bill Legere at KTOO regarding the special session. They are proposing that the city underwrite the cost of 50% for the coverage of the special session that convenes on the 26th. According to people in the know of the session, it should last 4-5 days, 5 days max, and it would be $2,000 per day. The money is available in Better Capital Funds, it has already been appropriated but it needs to be authorized.

    Assembly Action

    MOTION – by Kibby, to authorize the use of the fund for a maximum of five days. There being no objection, it was so ordered.

    Mayor Egan congratulated Kristen Hutchinson for her award.

    Mr. Kibby expressed that there was a lot of discussion at the Airport Board the other day. They heard from a lot of people but he thinks they also heard that currently, the congressional delegation is working on exemptions that may be inclusive of areas, such as radius 100 to 150 miles. The people that were representing that felt they would know in the next 3-4 months. The motion was not to delay but to implement on October 1st.

  3. CONTINUATION OF PUBLIC PARTICIPATION ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS - None
  4. ADJOURNMENT - There being no further business to come before the Assembly, and no objection, the meeting adjourned at 8:10 p.m.
