THE CITY AND BOROUGH OF JUNEAU, ALASKA

MEETING NO. 98-06: The Special meeting of the City and Borough of Juneau Assembly, held in the Assembly Chambers of the Municipal Building, was called to order at 12:00 noon by Mayor Dennis Egan.
Assembly members present: MacKinnon, Muñoz, Perkins, Garrett, Kibby, Koelsch, Mayor Egan
Assembly members absent: Powell, Hagevig
A quorum was present.
Staff Present: Evelyn Stott, Municipal Clerk; Dave Palmer, City Manager; John Corso, City Attorney
Ms. Muñoz reported that yesterday she met with Representative Ramona Barnes on the issue of the transfer agreement. Rep. Barnes was very cordial but also very clear that she will not accept changes to the existing agreement. Ms. Muñoz found the meeting very helpful and learned a lot of information about the agreement. First, on the use of the gym, Rep. Barnes made it very clear that activities that involve children would not be permitted at any time during the day at any time during the year. Second, Rep. Barnes was very clear that the financing for the project is not determined and there are no guarantees that the financing will happen. In that regard, Ms. Muñoz felt it was very important to have a date on the agreement to provide closure to the community on this issue. Without a date, she is certain it will go on year after year. Finally, Ms. Muñoz received a strong impression that the gift of Capital School really has little to do with improving Juneau’s standing as a Capital City.
Mr. Perkins thanked Ms. Muñoz for meeting with Rep. Barnes and discussing the addendum.
MOTION – by Perkins, that the city proceed with the agreement for transfer of Capital School from the CBJ to Legislative Affairs Agency, as written in the Transfer Agreement with the attachment Addendum "A", and asked unanimous consent.
Ms. Muñoz objected.
Yeas: MacKinnon Perkins, Kibby, Koelsch, Mayor Egan
Nays: Muñoz, Garrett
Motion carries 5:2
Mayor Egan stated, in conversations with Mr. Palmer and a message from Mr. Powell, they indicated that, although this is not the best agreement, they are in favor of going ahead now and negotiating down the road.
