MOSCOW CITY COUNCIL
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:
Parks & Rec
Fleet Mgmt Fund
Bond & Interest
LID Special Assessment
* 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.
