2014-14 NEW BUSINESS:
      A. Second Quarter 2013-2014 Budget Reforecast. FINANCE
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: At this time staff is transmitting the Second Quarter 2013-
14 Budget Reforecast which outlines proposed changes to the original budget
that have come about as result of changes in revenue projections, policy
priorities, labor contracts, updated economic conditions, or other factors.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: No major changes to the budget were made for the
second quarter. Some marginal adjustments were made resulting in the
following:
               The projected year-end FY14 fund balance for the General Fund
                is $4,823,112 up slightly from $4,795,755 estimated at the first
                quarter reforecast. The FY14 operating deficit (expenditures over
                revenues) is expected to be $830,446 down from the first quarter
                reforecast ($856,803) but up from the original budget estimate
                ($592,495).
               General Fund revenues are reforecast to be $113,042 (+0.5%)
                higher than originally budgeted. Most of this increase is due to
                higher builder permit fees and state shared revenues that were
                incorporated into the 1Q reforecast.
               General Fund expenditures are estimated to be $350,993 or 1.5%
                greater than originally budgeted mostly due to a $300,000
                supplemental contribution to MERS in addition to $58,000 in
                higher projected inspection costs that were both incorporated
                into the 1Q reforecast previously approved.
               Other City funds are mostly in-line with budget projections.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: City Commission approval of this reforecast will
formally amend the City’s 2013-14 budget.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Approval.
Motion by Vice mayor Spataro, second by Commissioner Hood to approve the
Second Quarter 2013-2014 Budget Reforecast.


                                                                               3

From:         Director of Public Safety Jeffrey Lewis

RE: Fireworks Delegation of Authority Authorization


SUMMARY OF REQUEST:

The Director of Public Safety requests that the City Commission review and authorize
the “Fireworks Delegation of Authority Authorization Pursuant to PA 256”.

The Bureau of Fire Services is seeking for departments that are interested in
applying for inspection delegation for consumer fireworks sales facilities (CFRS)
under Section 19 of 2011 PA 256. The delegation is for one (1) year. The fire
department would be responsible to conduct inspections of the permanent &
temporary CFRS location within its jurisdiction (City of Muskegon). Entities (MUFD)
that elect to have delegation will receive 80 % of the application fee paid for the
consumer fireworks certificate ($700.00 for permanent & $420.00 for temporary).

Currently MUFD has two (2) trained “certified fire inspectors” that are qualified to
perform this job task. Application will be made upon the acceptance by City
Commission.

FINANCIAL IMPACT:

Positive financial impact as fees are paid to conduct inspections

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED:

N/A

STAFF RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends reapproving & performing delegation inspections.
                CITY OF MUSKEGON

perform Fireworks Delegation Inspections as stated.

RE:        River Barges to Muskegon Port- Letter of Support


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Legislation has been introduced to allow
river barge traffic to enter the Muskegon Port. Currently, similar river
barge traffic has access to the Wisconsin ports, but not West Michigan
ports. If river barge traffic is allowed to enter the Muskegon ports, a
drastic increase in export and import will be available to the Muskegon
area (including the shipment of goods such as aggregate and alternative
energy products into Muskegon and the shipment of agricultural goods
out of Muskegon).


FINANCIAL IMPACT: The future potential for the Muskegon area to
benefit from both import and export of goods through river barge traffic
could be significant.


BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.


STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To approve the attached letter of support
for “Coast Guard Proposed Rulemaking USCG-2013-0954” directed to
the Director of Governmental and Public Affairs, US Coast Guard
Headquarters and to authorize the Mayor’s signature.

Avenue and Seaway and Shoreline Drive) curbed and uncurbed paved streets and paved
shoulders. Vendor must also perform special sweeping requests as solicited.

RE:          Participation Agreement for Nims Neighborhood
             Playground


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Staff has been working with Nims Neighborhood
(“Neighborhood”) and Muskegon Public Schools (“MPS”) to designate a parcel of
property on the former Nims School site for a playground for the neighborhood.
When the school closed a few years, ago, the play equipment was removed. There
are no other playgrounds in close proximity to much of the neighborhood. Therefore,
MPS has agreed to donate a parcel of property to the City of Muskegon (“City”), who
will then enter into an agreement with the Neighborhood to construct and maintain a
playground on the property. At this time, it is not absolutely certain where the
playground will be located on the property. Therefore, the attached “Participation
Agreement” has been prepared (and approved and signed by MPS), which will allow
the Neighborhood to have an assurance of property control for the future playground
(needed for grant applications).



FINANCIAL IMPACT: None.



BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.



STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To approve the attached “Participation Agreement”
and authorize the Vice-Mayor’s signature.

RE:           PILOT Request (Nelson Place) - Ordinance
              Amendment, Second Reading


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: Joe Hollander of Hollander Development Corporation (a
partner in Nelson Place Limited Dividend Housing Association Limited Partnership),
is seeking new financing for Nelson Place. There is currently a Payment in Lieu of
Taxes (PILOT) for Nelson Place which was executed on March 26, 1996. Mr.
Hollander intends to refinance the existing high interest loan from MSHDA with a
lower interest rate loan from another lender. However, the exiting PILOT Ordinance
for Nelson Place terminates the exemption upon refinancing. Therefore, an
amendment to the current Ordinance is being requested to allow for the continuation
of the PILOT after refinancing. Mr. Hollander intends to continue with the present
rent restrictions and income limits (with no dislocation of existing tenants… see
attached letter from Mr. Hollander). There will be no significant change to the existing
PILOT (length of Contract, PILOT payment). In addition, Nelson Neighborhood
Improvement Association will be paid back for a portion of their initial investment in
the property. The Commission will review and vote on the Ordinance Amendment at
the March 10, 2014 Work Session. It is likely that a second reading will be necessary
on March 11, 2014.

FINANCIAL IMPACT: None.

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: If the City Commission agrees that the continuation of
the PILOT is necessary for this property, staff recommends that the attached
Ordinance amendment be approved and the Clerk be authorized to sign the
necessary documents.

SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The PILOT Contract between Nelson Place Limited

length of the PILOT, as well as the PILOT payment, remain the same.

FINANCIAL IMPACT: The terms remain the same.

BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.

Mayor and Clerk to sign.

From:        Planning & Economic Development Department
RE:          Sidewalk Snow Removal Ordinance Amendment-
             Revised


SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The City of Muskegon currently has a snow removal
ordinance for sidewalks. However, it is not practical to administer. Therefore, an
amendment to the Ordinance is recommended to allow for actual enforcement of the
Ordinance. The major changes are to require snow to be removed from sidewalks
within 24 hours after the cessation of any storm depositing snow on the sidewalk,
and to allow for employees other than police officers, authorized by the City
Manager, to enforce the provisions of the Ordinance. In addition, since the February
11 Commission meeting, the draft ordinance has been amended to read, “within
twenty-four (24) hours after the cessation of any storm depositing snow on the
sidewalk abutting the property or as soon as practical, clear the snow from the
sidewalk”. This allows for discretion, depending on the weather conditions.



FINANCIAL IMPACT: None.



BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.



STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To approve the Ordinance Amendment for “Removal
of Snow and Ice from Sidewalks” and authorize the Clerk’s signature.
