MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Arial to approve the financial report February, 2016.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bowcutt.
VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Hughes – aye
Councilmember Bowcutt – aye
Councilmember Arial – aye
Councilmember Baca – aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Purchasing Manager Connie Hood introduced Jean Wojtyla, the new Purchasing Technician.

AWARD OF BID:
Consider award of the annual blanket bid for fertilizers and chemicals.

Purchasing Manager Connie Hood stated the low bidder was Helena Chemical. The last couple of years, staff has gone with a one year bid that included a two year option, this is the third year. She requested to award the bid to Helena for an amount not to exceed $250,000.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the blanket bid for fertilizers and chemicals with Helena not to exceed $250,000.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Baca.

AWARD OF BID:
Consider award of bid for the Little Valley Phase 5 sports field.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that when the RAP tax passed, the intention was to build two soccer fields and restrooms at the Little Valley Park. When the bid was noticed, it included Phase 6 improvements; however, while preparing the budget for next year, Phase 6 was deleted because he felt that the City has spent quite a bit of money on this park, neglecting some of the other City parks. He added that there are no RAP tax funds available to complete Phase 6. Based upon this information, Parks Planning staff looked at the line items, deleting the items that would have been included in Phase 6. If the entire project was going to be completed, the second bidder would be given local preference; however, taking the items out, they no longer meet the 5% requirement. There is no doubt that B Hansen Construction is a local contractor under the purchasing rules. The low bid was in the amount of $2,108,006 and did not include items such as lights, engineering fees and light impact fees.

Mayor Pike agreed. The Council spoke previously about using RAP tax funds for soccer fields. It makes sense to remove some of the items as other parks are being constructed. He mentioned that there was a budget committee to assist the City Manager and Budget Director to represent what the Council would want.

City Manager Gary Esplin mentioned that bid documents allow staff to delete individual items based on budget. Phase 6 was an additional phase which cannot be done without adding additional funds to the project, taking from other sources. He reviewed some of the items that were taken out. After removing the items, the low bidder remains the same. The cost of the project will be $2.1 million.

Purchasing Manager Connie Hood advised the low bidder was Musco in the amount of $290,095.

City Manager Gary Esplin clarified that the amount has been updated to $236,618. These fields will not be fenced at this time. The lights will be paid for using RAP tax funds.

Parks Planning Manager Jeff Peay explained that the change in the cost is due to removing the volleyball court from the Phase 5 project.

SETTLEMENT AGREEMENT:
Consider approval of a settlement agreement with Insite Towers to provide electrical service to the site west of Dixie Drive.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained this settlement arises from an issue with regard to who is supposed to provide electrical service to the Insite Towers. The City’s position has been that because the property is in the County, it should not be required to provide the electrical service. The owners of the property have obtained approval from the County to install the tower on the property. They now agree to annex the property to the south of Dixie Drive into the City; the property to the north will remain in the County. This will clear up the issues with regards to the services. Additionally, the settlement allows for some impact fee credits.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman asked the approval be subject to approval by the Legal Department. The agreement is between the City, the Gubler’s and Dixie Power.

This request has been discussed by staff – there are some issues that need to be discussed. The recommendation is to have the event on 100 East. Staff’s concern closing the street for a for profit who is involving a local 501c3, the Children’s Justice Center, as a beneficiary of a portion of the revenues.

Brandon Jay, event director for Slide the City, stated they have held this event worldwide; 60 successful events within the United States. He explained that the event is a 1,000 foot ‘slip n’ slide’ they put on city streets. The slide is nylon fabric with 1” high density foam underneath. Patrons are protected with a 24’ bumper on each side. The end of the slide has a control basin with 18-20” of water. The Children’s Justice Center will receive $60 for each volunteer they supply for a total of $6,000. Additionally, they donate 10% of the fees and give patrons a 10% discount if using the promotional code. Food vendors will be charged to participate; the fees will go to the Children’s Justice Center as well. The food vendors will be located at the cross section at the halfway mark and at the bottom of the slide. He stated that the slide is 24’ wide; food vendors will be sitting inside the intersection at 200 North.

Tina Griffin with the Children’s Justice Center explained that the patrons are capped at 5,000. They can ride once or for a two hour time slot.

Chris Conrad with Slide the City, Tina Griffin and Darrin Holman with the Children’s Justice Center introduced themselves.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that the applicant talked to staff about this last year; at that time they were proposing to hold the event on 700 East. Staff reviewed the application - it needs to be subject to the insurance requirements as City Attorney Shawn Guzman mentioned an issue with what was submitted.

Mr. Jay added that patrons go down the slide on tubes. Parking is proposed to be in the downtown parking garage; if there is a sellout amount (5,000 patrons), they would work out a plan with Dixie State University. Tickets can be purchased in advance or at the event.

Mr. Conrad explained that their website and press releases will outline the parking recommendations.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained that if Council is concerned with parking, barricades can be put in the area that may say “local traffic only”. The applicants submitted a security plan that was reviewed by staff; there will be no City staff working the event. If the event is overly successful, staff will have to be ready to address traffic issues. Police Captain Staley reviewed and feels comfortable with the traffic plan.

Mr. Jay noted that they shut registration down to 4,600 on line and have never had more than 500 tickets purchased at an event. The most popular time will be 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. They have three different lanes on the slide, one of which is staggered for smaller patrons. He explained that his staff will be stationed on the side of the slide and will have walkie talkies.

Councilmember Baca commented that the City supports the Children’s Justice Center; however, he is concerned that a private business wants to shut down a City street. Most profits are going to Slide the City using volunteers – 10% seems minimal to give to the Children’s Justice Center. Additionally, the event promoters were advertising the event prior to it being approved, particularly the insurance. He suggests that if they return and it is approved, they need to be diligent and contact staff prior to advertising the event.

Councilmember Bowcutt noted that the event promoter is taking on all of the financial risk.

City Manager Gary Esplin explained there is no limit on medical coverage. He understands the problem has been solved.

City Attorney Shawn Guzman stated that the last certificate had the sublimit on the medical insurance. He asked for an updated certificate.

Mr. Holman compared this event to others in the City that request road closures for private races and other similar events.

City Manager Gary Esplin commented that staff would like to see this event take place to see how it goes.

MOTION: A motion was made by Councilmember Hughes to approve the special event permit for the Slide the City event at 100 East 250 North on June 4, 2016 subject to the review of the insurance requirements with the Legal Department to make sure they meet the requirements.
SECOND: The motion was seconded by Councilmember Bowcutt.
VOTE: Mayor Pike called for a vote, as follows:

Councilmember Hughes – aye
Councilmember Bowcutt – aye
Councilmember Arial – aye
Councilmember Baca – aye

The vote was unanimous and the motion carried.

Mr. Holman added part of the Children’s Justice Center’s objective with this event is not only financial, but also to promote public awareness.

Mr. Jay stated ticket prices are between $10 and $60. The water will be given to a construction company for dust control.

RESOLUTION:
Consider approval of a resolution entering into an interlocal agreement with Washington County regarding coordination on the U.S. BLM Resource Management Plan.

City Manager Gary Esplin mentioned that the BLM has received comments and concerns regarding their Resource Management Plan, the City has not been involved, but the County has. The City was actually named in the federal law stating that it should be consulted. This interlocal agreement allows the County to share the information they have been given through their agreement with the BLM. Additionally, through this agreement, the City can voice concerns to them.

Mayor Pike added that he and City Manager Gary Esplin called the local BLM office asking to meet with them. They were told that they could not meet because it needed to be confidential with their partners. If approved, the County will provide all of the documentation pertaining to their discussions with the BLM over the past couple of months. This is a good and immediate solution.

Councilmember Arial stated that it is unfortunate that the City has to go through this process even though they were mentioned in the documents.

Councilmember Baca comments this item reflects the close working relationship between the City and the County.
