3.            Consider approval of a Developer Advance Funding Agreement with Friends of Switchpoint for the Riverwalk Village affordable housing development.

BACKGROUND AND RECOMMENDATION:  A $250,000 advance to Friends of Switchpoint is proposed to cover the costs of developer fees for the Riverwalk Village affordable housing development.  Advancing these funds to Friends of Switchpoint allows all future operating revenue to remain available for Riverwalk Village operations.  Staff recommends approval.

5.            Consider approval of an ordinance to create an appeal process for the appeal of administrative decisions to an administrative hearing officer, including amending the ordinance for employee appeals to be heard by an administrative hearing officer.

BACKGROUND AND RECOMMENDATION: Currently administrative appeals are heard by a number of different bodies: board of adjustment, planning commission, city council, ad hoc committees, and review boards.  This ordinance will allow all administrative hearings to be heard by an administrative hearing officer unless otherwise provided in the code.  We are going to first amend the employee appeal ordinance to have employee appeals heard by an administrative hearing officer.  Staff recommends adopting the new ordinance and the amended ordinance.
