 SPECIAL MEETING Monday, April 17, 2006 7:00 p.m.

  City Hall Council Chambers

  206 East Third Street, Second Floor

  The Moscow Mayor, City Council and Staff welcome you to tonight's 
meeting. We appreciate and encourage public participation. For regular 
agenda items, an opportunity for public comment is sometimes provided 
after the staff report. However, the formality of procedures varies 
with the purpose and subject of the agenda item; therefore, the Mayor 
may exercise discretion in deciding when to allow public comment during 
the course of the proceedings and limitations will be placed on the 
time allowed for comments. Citizens wishing to comment on business 
which is not on the agenda will be provided the opportunity to do so as 
item number 2. If you plan to address the Council, you will find a list 
of "Tips for Addressing the Council" on the table outside the City 
Council Chambers. Thank you for your interest in City government.

  RENEWING OUR FOCUS - At each meeting, one City Council member will 
present an example of patriotism, humanitarianism, community spirit, or 
other inspirational message. Contact a Council-member with examples to 
share at future meetings.

   * Consent Agenda: Any item will be removed from the consent agenda at 
the request of any member of the Council and that item will be 
considered separately later. Approval by roll call vote.

 A. Approval of Minutes of April 3, 2006 - Stephanie Kalasz

 B. Disbursement Report for March 2006 - Don Palmer

  Public Works/Finance Committee reviewed accounts payable for March 
2006 and recommends approval of the following:





   HUD Reserve

   Parks & Rec


   1912 Center




   Water Fund


   Sewer Fund




   Fleet Mgmt Fund


   Enterprise Construction

   Capital Projects

   * Public Comment and Mayor's Response Period (limit 15 minutes) - For 
members of the Public to speak to the Council regarding matters NOT on 
the Agenda and not currently pending before the Planning and Zoning 
Commission or Board of Adjustment, please state your name and address 
for the record and limit remarks to three minutes. Mayor will respond 
to comments from previous meeting.

  * Gas Franchise Renewal Ordinance - Gary J. Riedner
   On March 6, 2006, Council extended the natural gas franchise 
ordinance (due to expire on March 7, 2006) for a period of 60 days to 
account for the time necessary to implement a new franchise. The 
proposed Ordinance has a term of ten years with a renewal term of 
fifteen years. The Administrative Committee reviewed this matter on 
February 28, 2006 and forwarded a recommendation of approval to the 
City Council for consideration. The proposed Franchise Agreement was 
considered on first reading March 6, second reading on March 20, and 
scheduled the third reading for April 17, 2006. This timeline was 
necessary to meet the 30 day requirement imposed by Idaho Code §50-329.

  ACTION: Adopt Ordinance on third reading and that it be read and 
published by title only; or reject the Ordinance; or take such other 
action deemed appropriate.

  * Gosselin Lot Line Adjustment - Andrew Ackerman
   Tod Gosselin owns a vacant .43 acre parcel of property at 2925 Joseph 
Street that was recently created in an approved lot split. Due to 
reasons outlined in his letter, he is now requesting that the boundary 
lines of the subject lot be adjusted as shown in the attached 
documents. The proposed new lot dimensions would not change the square 
footage of the lot and would meet all the minimum requirements for lot 
dimensions and street frontage in the Low Density Single-Family 
Residential (R-1) Zoning District. Reviewed by the Public Works/Finance 
Committee on March 27, 2006.

  ACTION: Approve the lot line adjustment; or reject the lot line 
adjustment; or take such other action deemed appropriate.

  * Cemetery Water/Sewer Rates - Don Palmer/Les MacDonald
   Beginning upon October 1, 2005, the Moscow Cemetery Maintenance 
District was billed the commercial water and sewer rates based upon a 
four inch meter as was established under the utility rate study 
conducted in 2005. Water services are billed at the rate of $187.50 per 
month and $1.55 per CCF, while sewer is billed at the commercial rate. 
Prior to October 1, 2005, the District was charged only $0.15 per CCF 
for water. After implementation of the new rate structure, it was 
brought to our attention that the Cemetery District is significantly 
different than most commercial properties and was not adequately 
addressed during the 2005 rate study. Staff will present a proposed 
rate adjustment for the Cemetery District for the Committee's 
consideration. This was considered by the Public Works/Finance 
Committee on April 10, 2006.

  ACTION: Accept one of the alternative proposals as presented or reject 
all proposals; or take such other action deemed appropriate.

  * Quarterly Financial Report - Don Palmer
   Staff will present the financial report for the second quarter of 
fiscal year 2005-2006 (January 1, 2006 through March 31, 2006).

 ACTION: Accept Report.
