Memorandum 
 

To:       Mayor and Commissioners 

From:  Frank Peterson 

Re:       City Commission Meeting 

Date:  June 10, 2014 

We have a number of items on the agenda, and I thought you could use a little background on them as 
you prepare for our meeting next week. 

Work Session 

       1. The proposed budget is our attempt to meet the items outlined in the action plan – essentially 
          improve services while dealing with the losses related to BC Cobb and added expenses related 
          to the Smart Zone bonds and LC Walker Arena.  Here are some highlights leading up to the 
          budget presentation: 
              a. Proposed balanced general fund budget for fiscal year 2014‐15 in accordance with 
                  Action Plan, with GF revenues of $24,733,981 and GF expenditures of $24,733,617. 
              b. Over 75% of GF revenues come from income tax, property tax and state shared revenue. 
              c. Compared with the budget from six years ago, property tax is down 7.56% and state 
                  shared revenue is down 13.42%. 
              d. FY 2014‐15 budgeted revenues compared to actual FY 2008 revenues of $25,563,632 
                  are down over $800,000. 
              e. FY 2014‐15 budgeted revenues are about equal with actual revenues received in 2005.  
                  However, since 2005 the CPI has risen by more than 21%. 
              f. General operating millage to go from 9.5 to maximum 10.0 and sanitation millage to go 
                  from 2.5 to maximum 3.0. 
              g. 229 budgeted full‐time positions for FY 2014‐15 compared with 315 in 2002. 
              h. Contract trade inspections, environmental and rental inspection services with SafeBuilt. 
              i. Continue to contract recreational services with outside agencies. 
              j. GF to provide $227,000 in support to Smartzone for debt service. 
              k. Proposed street lighting special assessment of 75% of street lighting costs to raise 
                  $495,000. 
              l. We’ve increased blight fight efforts throughout neighborhoods.  
              m. Implementation of Action Plan approved in April by the City Commission to improve 
                  current service levels to provide the best value to our taxpayers. 
                   
CRC Meeting 

   1. We have a candidate for the Construction Board of Appeals.  We are recommending approval. 
       

Regular Meeting 

   1. We’ll be recognizing some graduates of the Citizen Police Academy – including Commissioner 
      Turnquist! 
   2. Organizers of the 4th of July special event at Heritage Park are asking to have a second day of 
      fireworks – July 4th and 5th. 
   3. The Civil Service Commission has requested that the City Commission extend the HR agreement 
      with the County for 1 additional year.  There would be no changes in the contract terms – the 
      cost would remain unchanged from the current year. 
   4. We are seeking approval for two capital improvements through the Engineering Department – 
      one is cost share with Norton Shores and Fruitport Township, and the other is a roof 
      replacement for the building at McGraft Park. 
   5. We are proposing a change to the Fireworks Ordinance to clarify when fireworks can be used, 
      and on which types of properties they can be used on. 
   6. We will have a public hearing on the 2014‐15 Budget. 

Other Updates: 

   1. The CRC meetings on the road were very‐well received.  We have had a number of comments 
      from people throughout the City that they would like to see these continue.  I’m not sure how 
      feasible it is to do that over the long‐term, but I bet we can accommodate a couple each 
      summer.  I’ll leave it up to the CRC Chair to make a recommendation on this. 
   2. We have gotten many positive comments about our Action Plans – people are reading them, 
      and many are voicing their pleasure with our direction!  This is great! 
   3. The Medical Marihuana ordinance will be ready for review and adoption at the first July 
      meeting. 
   4. Parties in the Park start this week!

      F. Operations Management Contract:  Farmers’ Market Commercial
         Kitchen. PLANNING & ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
SUMMARY OF REQUEST: The new Farmers’ Market downtown includes a
Commercial Kitchen. The intended use of the kitchen is for incubator space, as
well as classroom/education. The ultimate goal is to have the Kitchen used
24/7. In order to market the facility, as well as manage the usage, collect rent,
etc., a Kitchen Manager is needed. Proposals were requested for this and
Pioneer Resources was the only proposal received. The City has negotiated with
Pioneer Resources for their management services, with the resulting Contract. It
is difficult to know exact costs and services needed at this point, since it is new
for all of us. Therefore, the Contract term is only six months to start. It is
anticipated that both the City and the Manager will have a better
understanding of operations and costs at the end of the six month term.
Meanwhile, we are confident that Pioneer is the best company to manage the
Kitchen, as they have experience with food service and operations and
management.
FINANCIAL IMPACT: Per the terms of the Contract, the Manager shall provide
the staffing, management and operations of the facility. The City shall pay for
the utility costs. The Manager shall track revenue and expenses and turn over
any net proceeds to the City.
BUDGET ACTION REQUIRED: None.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: To approve the Contract and authorize the Mayor
and Clerk’s signatures.
Motion by Commissioner Rinsema-Sybenga, second by Vice Mayor Spataro to
approve the operations management contract for the Farmers’ Market
commercial kitchen with Pioneer Resources and authorize the Mayor and
Clerk’s signatures.
