PUBLIC HEARING/FISCAL YEAR 2018-2019 BUDGET:

Public hearing to take public comment before formally adopting the Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Budget.

 

City Manager Lenhard stated the City's Preliminary Fiscal Year 2018-19 Budget was presented on May 3, 2018 after which a copy has been made available on the City's website and at the City Recorder's Office.  State Law requires the City to have at least one public hearing before formally adopting the City's final annual fiscal budget, and also requires the budget be adopted on or before June 22nd. There will be two public hearings to take citizen input. The second hearing will be on June 21, 2018.  No action is needed during this public hearing. Official action to adopt the 2018-19 Budget will be requested during the June 21, 2018 public hearing.  

 

There was discussion regarding the city’s rainy day fund and the State limits on the funds.

 

City Manager Lenhard explained the total budget is approximately $270 million, of that approximately $73 million is in the general fund. He explained there will be a

final public hearing in two weeks at which time he will recommend the council approve the budget.

 

There was discussion regarding the increase in the FY 2019 over the FY 2018 budget of nine to ten percent.  The revenues are projected to increase; however, there is no increase to the city’s tax rate.  It is a balanced budget.

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing, seeing no one wishing to comment, he closed the public hearing.

 

PUBLIC HEARING/NON-RECIPROCAL TRANSFERS FOR UNBILLED UTILITY SERVICES:

Public hearing to review and take public comment regarding non-reciprocal transfers for unbilled utility services from the Electric and Water Funds to other City Funds.

 

Administrative Services Director Trevor Coombs reviewed the water and power services provided at no charge to City facilities, such as parks, wells & pump stations. Costs are built into the current utility rates. This practice is required to be discussed in a public hearing; no action is needed at this time.  It is about $12 per year per citizen for a year.  This covers water and electrical.  He provided the dollar amount of the unbilled electric and water consumption. He indicated there are projected estimates for the FY 2019 costs in the budget. 

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing. 

 

Gregg Kemp asked if the City provides utilities to the golf courses without charge.

 

Administrative Services Director Trevor Coombs replied not all of golf courses are provided services at no charge. The golf courses are only about $10,000 of the total $390,000 amount; the remainder is water for the parks. 

 

Water Services Director Scott Taylor explained all city owned golf courses are on irrigation water which includes treated reuse water.  Golf courses pay for the share assessments they own in irrigation companies for the water they use on the courses and the City maintains the system and delivers the water to the courses.

 

Larry Bundy expressed concern as far as the unbilled services; he asked if there can be cap placed on the money taken out of these accounts. He asked how the city pays for these services and what is done with interest earned on savings accounts.

 

City Manager Lenhard explained if the general fund were charged for water and electricity, there would need to be revenue increases to cover those costs, meaning fees would have to be increased.  The money would still be coming from tax payers’ pockets, just as increased fees rather than through the utility rates.  The State has cities publish these costs and hold a public hearing as a way of assuring the services are properly accounted for.  The accounting recognizes the expense but doesn’t charge the general fund.

St. George City Council Minutes

Administrative Services Director Trevor Coombs explained staff keeps track of the interest earned on various accounts and uses that in the budget process to help calculate revenues and keep costs in check.  The unbilled services are tracked by utility account and by department.

 

Mayor Pike commented that the City is not spending any more money; this hearing is simply to explain how accounting is done. Seeing no other people wishing to comment, he closed the public hearing.

 

Councilmember Baca asked if there is a fund for donations made by people.

 

Administrative Services Director Trevor Coombs explained the City does a receive bit of donations from customers who round up to the next dollar the amount due on their bill.  Those funds are used for people in need.  He discussed the HEAT program, another option for people in need.

 

PUBLIC HEARING/TRANSFERS FROM ENTERPRISE FUNDS:

Public hearing to review and take public comment regarding the proposed transfers from Enterprise (Business-type) Funds to Other Funds in the Fiscal Year 2018-2019 Budget.

 

Administrative Services Director Trevor Coombs explained these are administrative and overhead services provided by the General Fund to the various Enterprise (business-type) Funds. Costs are estimated and each enterprise fund transfers their proportionate share of costs to the General Fund. Per House Bill 164, any transfers between Enterprise and Non-Enterprise Funds are required to be discussed in a public hearing.  No action is needed at this time.  He explained it is more cost effective for enterprise funds to use what the resources the city has in house as opposed to Enterprise funded departments getting their own HR or Legal department for example. He reviewed the amounts of the transfers to other funds; the total for water and electric is $5,425,000 and $2,430,000 for the drainage fund.

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing, seeing none, he closed the public hearing.

 

PUBLIC HEARING/ORDINANCE/AMEND THE ATKINVILLE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT COMMERCIAL ZONE:

Public hearing and consideration of an ordinance amending the Atkinville Master Plan PD-C (Planned Development Commercial) Zone to expand Area 4.5 (Employment Type I) east along the Southern Parkway on approximately 25.8 acres generally located east of Astragalus Drive exit along Southern Parkway.

Public hearing and consideration of an ordinance changing the zoning from OS (Open Space) to C2 (Highway Commercial) on 12.90 acres for Twin Lakes. The property is generally located north of the I-15 Freeway between Twin Lakes Drive and Red Hills Parkway.

 

Planning Manager John Willis presented the request to change the zoning from OS (Open Space) to C2 (Highway Commercial) on 12.90 acres for Twin Lakes. The property is generally located north of the I-15 Freeway between Twin Lakes Drive and Red Hills Parkway.  This is a request to change the zoning. No development is proposed.  The applicant is requesting a C-2 zoning; therefore, all development would be required to comply with the applicable ordinances, in regards to heights, setbacks, and uses.  This item was tabled at the May 17 City Council meeting.  He presented a PowerPoint presentation covering the following topics: map of the location, zoning is open space, general plan is commercial, the request is modified to PD-C, site plan to expect future amendments with elevations, the items in the written text, the use list, staff worked with the application to remove several uses that were proposed.    The Planning Commission recommended denial of the C-2 and recommend the zoning be Planned Develop Commercial (PD-C).

There was discussion regarding approved uses under PD-C.  An example of an approved use is a circus.  The discussion included some approved uses of concern such as an automobile repair or boat service and what can be done to keep those types of things looking neat.

 

Planning Manager John Willis indicated with PD-C the council can review each use as it comes in for development or another option is to leave it open to be reconsidered it as part of the site plan review.  If there is a use the council doesn’t want to allow, it should be removed as part of this action.

 

Mayor Pike commented that the City also has the option to enforce violations via the code enforcement staff.

 

Councilmember Baca asked about the drainage.

 

Planning Manager John Willis said the applicant is working on the drainage and will continue to do so.

 

Neil Walters representing the applicant said there are a substantial number of adjustments including removing the circus and the water park from consideration for uses of the property.

 

Mayor Pike opened the public hearing.

 

Gary Hughes, the Twin Lakes Association President, explained the HOA is still worried about what goes in there due to noise. He said homes have lost value already.  With all the possible things like a massage establishment, will each one of these uses be addressed before it’s approved?

 

Mayor Pike explained if the council doesn’t take uses out tonight, they won’t be denied later but council will look at the designs.

 

Gary Hughes indicated a bus terminal, taxi stop are busy and 24 hour operations. The library and post office sound pretty good.  He is worried about disturbing the established neighborhoods.  He commented that he doesn’t see any type of rentals like apartments or townhomes. 

 

Mayor Pike explained said there are several apartments/townhomes in various stages of development in the City.

 

Gary Hughes asked about the lights that will come off to the houses. 

 

Mayor Pike commented the development will all have to confirm to City ordinances.  Seeing no one else wanting to comment, he closed the public hearing.

 

Mayor Pike explained this is PD-C located where it is an entrance to the city and he would like to have a bit more say than C-2 commercial development would require.

He expressed that it’s reasonable to allow the property owners some exceptions to allow them to develop their property.

 

The council discussed the changes made as the development is moving from open space zoning to commercial.  The change from C-2 to PD-C gives more oversight on what is developed.  Not all the approved uses would be part of the development.

 

There was discussion regarding whether to exclude certain uses such as a bus terminal, auto repair and boat servicing. 

 

Neil Walters commented regarding the concern that an auto repair use won’t reflect well on the City. He indicated it’s a use the applicant would like to have considered but isn’t currently on the list of proposed development. He commented that the council will have quite a bit of say over the site plan and there are some good mitigating impacts that can be done to mitigate concerns.  The applicant recognizes that in the context of the planning processes, each use will be before the council as the project goes further. 

 

The group discussed some of the auto facilities that are well kept and code enforcement regulations.  The group agreed noise was part of living in a city.
