Mayor Davis called the Special City Council Meeting of June 29, 2001 to order at 8:10 a.m. A quorum was present. Item No. 1. Discussion of Fees Schedule. City Manager Doug Spell presented the Fees Schedule for Council consideration. Council had requested additional infonnation at the previous meeting on planning and development fees, street closing fees, and watershed fees. This infonnation was provided to Council in advance and City Manager Spell briefed Council. A. Plannine and Development Fees. Council Member Kilgore questioned the Planning and Zoning Fees Schedule. Council Member Kilgore expressed concern over the excessive proposed change that would make the fee for a 151-10t subdivision increase from $502 ($200 plus $2 per lot) to $4,075 ($300 plus $25 per lot). Wayne Herron, Planning Manager stated that the fee increase for a 151-10t subdivision, based on a revenue estimate for the number of subdivisions received this year, would be $675 ($300 plus $5 per lot). Mayor Davis questioned the use of a $5 per lot fee since it was listed on the Fees Schedule as $25 per lot. Mr. Herron referred to a memorandum from Carol Rhea, Planning Director, that addressed a previous concern about the $25 per lot fee being unacceptable to Council. City Manager Spell advised that the $25 per lot fee is Staff s recommendation based on full cost recovery, and the $10 per lot fee was presented by Ms. Rhea as an alternative should Council desire an incremental increase. Mr. Herron further 63 e e e e e referenced the memorandum by stating that a 200-lot subdivision, at the alternate rate of $300 plus $10 per lot, would generate a revenue of $2,300, which is in line with the cities of Salisbury ($2,200), Lexington ($3,000), and Belmont ($1,475) and less than Waxhaw ($10,250), Indian Trail ($2,000-$6000), and Charlotte ($19,260). Ms. Rhea also recommends lowering the flat fee for minor subdivisions from $150 to $100. Council Member Kilgore requested the amount of money lost last year. Mr. Herron noted that several fees are not collected for permits, and the City's subdivision fees are low in comparison with other jurisdictions. Mr. Herron stated the proposed fees would generate revenue of $43,690, while the same projects in the past year received $16,660. Mayor Davis noted a discrepancy between the $10 per lot figure stated in the memorandum and the $5 per lot figure cited in the revenue projection table on Page 3 of the memorandum. Mr. Herron responded that the $10 per lot fee is Ms. Rhea's alternative recommendation. City Manager Spell clarified that the $25 per lot fee is Staffs recommendation based on full cost recovery, and the $10 per lot fee is an alternative if Council desires an incremental increase. Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore recommended there be an incremental increase annually until the $25 per lot fee is attained. Council Member Keziah was in agreement with the recommended $300 plus $25 per lot fee. Council Member Smith requested the total projected revenue using the recommended $25 per lot fee. Mr. Herron responded that the total revenue at the proposed fee would be $5,300 for a 200-10t subdivision. Mayor Pro Tern Bazemore stated that fee decreases should remain in areas of need, such as graveyard fees, and the development fees are not an area of need, therefore, he recommended keeping the development fee at $25 per lot. City Manager Spell advised that many developments are done by developers from outside the area, and if full cost recovery is not achieved, then taxpayers must subsidize these projects. An inquiry was made regarding the number of new subdivisions per year that the fee would affect. City Manager Spell referred to Ms. Rhea's memorandum and noted the projection is for seven new subdivisions. Council Member Kilgore requested the fee amount if a 200-10t subdivision was developed in the County. Mr. Herron replied that the fee would be $1.50 per lot for a total of $300. City Manager Spell advised that the County is increasing their fees by doubling their building inspection fees in their proposed budget. B. Emere:encv Inspection Fee. City Manager Spell advised adding this fee to the schedule. The recommendation is for a fee of $200 per inspection, with an hourly rate charged for work in excess of two hours. c. Street Closine: Fees. Council Member Kilgore questioned the excessive increase in this fee from $35 to $1,040. He stated that people who request street closings have to incur the expense of the survey, attorney fees, and the application fee. This was explained at a previous meeting, and the increase was designed to cover the advertisement costs, required sign installation, and staff time. City Manager Spell stated that adjacent property owners gain real property if a street right of way is closed further justifying full cost recovery. D. Watershed Development Fee. Council was in agreement with the watershed development fee increases. 64 e e e e . E. Openin2: and Closin2: of Graves. Council Member Kilgore questioned the Opening and Closing of Graves Fee at Hillcrest and Suncrest. Kilgore stated that the increase from $300 to $600 is a substantial amount and suggested increasing the fee in increments of $100 for in-City residents. Kilgore cited no problems with the out-of-town grave charges. City Manager Spel1 advised that adjustments have been made in accordance with previous Council direction and are reflected in the proposed changes dated June 19. The resident opening and closing rate would be increased from $300 to $450, resident grave spaces would increase from $100 to $250, and resident cremation burials would increase from $75 to $115. Item No.2. Consideration of Adoption of Fiscal Year 200112002 Fees Schedule. Council Member Hargett moved to adopt the Fees Schedule as written. Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Hargett, Keziah, Smith, Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore, and Mayor Davis NAYS: Council Members Kilgore and Jordan The Fiscal Year 2001-2002 Fees Schedule is hereby incorporated as a part of these Minutes as ((Exhibit A. " Council Member Smith inquired about utility deposits and whether the City evaluates credit records with other utility companies. Director of Finance and Administration Sonia Vizcaino, confirmed that this process is done, and stated that Equafax is also utilized. Council Member Smith further questioned whether there is a distinction made between owner and renter. Ms. Vizcaino replied that there is currently no distinction made. This issue will be discussed in the Customer Service Committee. Council Member Smith inquired about the time period used for good credit. Ms. Vizcaino replied that the industry standard of 24 months is utilized. Item No.3. Consideration of Adoption of Fiscal Year 200112002 Annual Operating: Bud2:et and Budg:et Ordinance. Council Member Jordan expressed concerns previously discussed with City Manager Spell regarding the budget. Jordan stated that the budget does not have a strategy for allowing young professionals to enter new subdivisions that are being developed. In addition, Jordan noted his concern regarding the continued practice of police officers driving their cars home, as a subsidy to them. Council Member Jordan further stated that residents must pay transportation costs that are at least 19 percent of their total monthly income. This is a substantial subsidy provided to the police officers who often live outside the City, and he expressed a concern that this leads to a lack of vested interest in the area they serve. Council Member Jordan also noted a concern about subsidizing the Building Inspections Department from general revenue. There have been previous discussions about collecting adequate fees to make this department self-sustaining, which has not occurred. Council Member Jordan stated his disagreement of paying lobbyists to represent the City in Washington. A final concern was expressed relating to the lack of a Hispanic staff person at City Hall to assist with the estimated 22 percent Hispanic population in the City. 65 · e e e e Council Member Smith requested a progress report concerning the activities of the lobbyists and the actions they are making. City Manager Spell stated that this would be initiated in the fall to prepare for the federal appropriations process. There have been preliminary discussions to date, but this would involve extensive contact with Council and staff to establish priorities for the City. These priorities could include appropriations for various projects such as housing issues, Airport facility needs, or the old Annory Building restoration. The initial step is to brainstonn possibilities and then set priorities to be used as a directive for finding appropriation bills that could accommodate these needs. It was suggested that air quality be an issue of priority. City Manager Spell stated that several City staff members are currently evaluating grants utilizing Grants Locator to detennine if it would be beneficial to departments. City Manager Spell further noted that he met with Bob Harvell, Building Standards Manager, and quarterly updates will be provided to Council pertaining to the status of revenues. City Manager Spell advised that the proposed budget is designeØ to facilitate transition by having comparability with the fees of the County. The Fees Schedule will be evaluated over a six-month period and will then be presented to Council again if adjustments are needed. City Manager Spell stated that the numbers are the best estimates staff could obtain based on three months of history. Council Member Keziah moved to adopt Resolution R-2001-37 and Budget Ordinance BO- 2001-08 to approve the Fiscal Year 2001-2002 Budget: RESOLUTION TO ADOPT AN ANNUAL BALANCED BUDGET FOR FISCAL YEAR 2001-2002 R-2001-37 WHEREAS, the City of Monroe is required by the North Carolina Local Governrnent Budget and Fiscal Control Act to adopt an annual balanced budget; and WHEREAS, a balanced budget has been prepared for the City of Monroe for fiscal year 200 1 ~2002 under the provisions set forth in the above referenced legislation; NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the City Council of the City of Monroe adopts the following budget ordinance: BUDGET ORDINANCE DO-2001-08 BE IT ORDAINED by the City Council of the City of Monroe, North Carolina: Section lA The following amounts are hereby appropriated in the General Fund for the operation of the City government and its activities for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2001, and ending June 30, 2002: General Governrnent Transportation Public Safety Environmental Protection Cultural and Recreational $3,238,235 1,924,740 10,635,320 1,985,085 5,652,270 66 e e e e e Section 1B Section 1 C Section 2A Section 2B Section 2C Section 3A Debt Service 1,995,500 $25,431,150 It is estimated that the following revenues will be available in the General Fund for the fiscal year beginning July 1,2001, and ending June 30, 2002: Ad Valorem Taxes Other Taxes and Licenses Unrestricted Intergovernmental Revenues Restricted Intergovernmental Revenues Sales and Services Investment Earnings Miscellaneous Other Financing Sources $9,545,800 3,588,000 2,298,900 900,000 6,587,250 776,000 72,600 1,662,600 $25,431,150 There is hereby levied a tax at the rate of fifty ($0.50) cents per one hundred dollars ($100) valuation of property as listed for taxes as of January 1, 2001, for the purpose of current year property taxes listed under "Ad Valorem Taxes" in the General Fund in Section 1 B.

For enlargements of existing services, the fee shall be the difference between the new service size and the existing size. The fees presented above are based on a typical "equivalent residential unit" (ERU) peak daily flow demand from a customer with a 'l4 inch meter size, and American Water Works meter equivalency ratios. Peak ERU flow allowances are 245 gallons per day for sewer, and 368 gallons per day for water. The Water Resources Department reserves the right to impose additional availability fees for meter sizes greater than 2 inch when, based on industrial pretreatment permit applications, flow projections, or other information, the water or sewer flow volumes exceed 150% of allowable flow. Fees shall be based on $3.55 per gallon for sewer and $2.75 per gallon for water. In no case shall the fees be less than shown in the schedule. If based on financial calculations of present worth using current financing rates and user fees, the projected customer usage fees will provide a positive return to offset the additional availability fee 59 amount, the Director of Water Resources and Director of Finance and Administration, with thc concurrence of the City Manager, may waive the additional fees. The waiver shall be based on a written agreement between the customer and the city defining the conditions of the waiver. Section 2: When Availabilitv Fees are Not Required When renovation or repair of existing establishment's results in no increase in the size of the water/sewer service and no increase in flow volume beyond the allowable flow limit, no availability fee shall be charged. When a renewal tap is requested for an existing establishment and is not associated with an increase in size or flow volume, no availability fee shan be charged. No availability fee shall be charged for a change in occupancy or ownership of the same facility provided the facility has not expanded. However, if an existing development on a lot or parcel is demolished in favor of the construction of new development, availability fces may be due as follows: (1) if the new development includes a larger watcr tap size or increased flow volume, fees shall be paid for the proposed increase in use accordance with this article; and (2) if an old development on a lot or parcel has been demolished and removed for a year or longer before the construction of new development is initiated, fees shall be paid for the new development as if the property were being developed for the first time. Applications for dedicated fire-line only water service connections or dedicated %" rcsidential lawn irrigation water service connections do not require payment of availability fces provided that domestic water service for the property is also being obtained by separate metcr from the City of Monroe. 60 e e e e e · e e e e ARTICLE F.
