CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITY It is the customer's responsibility to maintain all private piping downstream of the water meter in proper repair and condition, and to promptly discover and stop the loss of water if it occurs. In addition, the customer is responsible for making arrangements to repair or have repaired the fixture or Regular City Council Meeting June 17,2008 Page 144 device causing the water loss. Although there is no obligation for City of Monroe to adjust accounts when the water has been metered properly, it is the City of Monroe's desire to encourage customers to make prompt and permanent repairs and to show consideration for circumstances that result in excessive billing charges. The customer must provide information describing the situation or circumstances that resulted in the loss of water. This should include the cause of the water loss if known, when the problem was discovered, what action was taken to stop the loss of water, and the arrangements made for repairs. If a repair is completed, the customer must provide a copy of the plumber's bill or a statement of materials purchased if the repair was performed by the customer. This will support the condition that the repair is a quality job of a permanent nature. ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE Upon receipt of the customer's statement describing the water loss and copies of invoices or receipts documenting repair, a City of Monroe Customer Service Representative will evaluate the circumstances surrounding the water loss. The accuracy of the meter may be verified prior to calculating the adjustment. The Customer Service Representative will calculate the adjustment under the following guidelines. (a) The adjustment shall be one-half ('/2) of the amount in excess of the previous twelve (12) months average billings for water and sewer excluding the months(s) of excessive consumption for which the adjustment is requested, or if the average consumption is -undeterminable due to high consumption for an extended period of time, the three month's consumption average after repair shall be considered as the average consumption. (b) No adjustment shall be made for a period in excess of two (2) billing periods (c) A maximum of one adjustment will be allowed every year. Adjustments will not normally be allowed for water loss arising from carelessness, negligence or lack of due diligence on the part of the customer, as it is the customer's responsibility to promptly discover and stop the loss of water. The City of Monroe will adjust sewer charges off a customer's account when they fill a swimming pool/hot tub or spa only if the consumption is 10,000 gallons or more, and if it is verified that the swimming pool drains and filter backwash do not discharge to the sewer system. A maximum of one adjustment per year is allowed. It will be the customer's responsibility to read their water meter prior to filling the pool and after the pool is filled and call the readings into the Customer Service Division. The amount of the calculated usage will be adjusted off the sewer charges. All water loss calculations shall be documented by Customer Service personnel, and shall include a complete and adequate description of the problem and justification for the adjustment. A proposed adjustment will be reviewed and approved or denied by the Customer Service Manager/Supervisor before a credit adjustment is made to the customer's account. In accordance with the North Carolina Records Retention and Disposition Schedule, a copy of the documentation will remain in the Customer Service Department for a period of thirty-six (36) months, and be retained digitally in the utility address file. Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Page 145 Once the adjustment has been made to the customer's account, the Customer Service Representative will notify the customer that the adjustment has been made. IMPLEMENTATION The Customer Service Manager/Supervisor shall be responsible for implementation and interpretation of this policy, and is authorized to exercise on behalf of the City .of Monroe, the discretionary determination as to the applicability of this policy in the various circumstances involving abnormal water usage or loss.

Adoption of Additional Six -Month Moratorium on Residential Subdivision Development. A. Public Hearing. Mayor Kilgore opened the duly advertised public hearing. Assistant City Manager Herron stated that currently, the moratorium for single-family development expires on July 22, 2008. He advised that the Land Development Committee had been working the last six months on recommendations for single-family development in Monroe; however, recommendations will not be completed by the July expiration date. Staff will work to present findings as soon as possible so that the moratorium can be lifted at the earliest point possible. He advised that staff was asked to consider exempting or providing exceptions for minor subdivisions from the moratorium, but the Planning Board has again recommended no exceptions be made at this time. Mr. Herron advised that staff, Land Development Committee, and Planning Board recommended that Council adopt an Ordinance renewing the moratorium to run to January 2009. Council Member Jordan asked Mr. Herron if he was aware of any hardship this might be placing on anyone. Mr. Herron stated that he was aware of people who were interested in creating subdivisions. Council Member Jordan stated that he was referring to individuals who would like to subdivide their land for a family member. Mr. Herron stated that he was familiar with people who wanted to do this. He advised that the Planning Board debated as to whether or not this constituted a "hardship" and it was their recommendation that this did not cause a hardship. rTh Council Member Jordan stated that consideration needed to be given to individuals who would like to subdivide their land to allow a family member to build a house to take advantage of current interest rates or to take care of a situation whena family member may need to bring another family member closer to them or something of that nature. He stated that he would like for staff to come up with the appropriate language that would allow for this exception as a part of the consideration for this moratorium. With regard to the requests for subdividing, Council Member Jordan asked what types of subdivisions were being requested. Mr. Herron stated that most requests were for one lot. t ; Council Member Jordan stated that it was his understanding that the primary reason for enacting Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Page 153 n the moratorium was to try to get control on the water and sewer usage and also on the type of developments that are going to be allowed especially with regard to density in large subdivisions. He stated that he was having a hard time trying to see what kind of harm doing a minor subdivision for six months would have. Mr. Herron stated that the Planning Board's concern, which is debatable, was that if there were any changes suggested in lot size and clustering standards for building construction, even one or two homes could impact a neighborhood. They felt like this was an actual subdivision of property and they did not see that as an emergency situation especially since staff was looking to resolve this as quickly as possible prior to the six month deadline. Council Member Jordan stated that he understood what the Planning Board was trying to do. However, Council, in trying to establish policy, had to look as what was fair and what best served the needs of the citizens. He stated that the Planning Board and the Land Development Committee have had six months to work on this and people have been on hold for six months and now again for those people who want to build one or two homes for some type of a family or relative's use, the City is going to ask them to wait another six months while the matter is further investigated and he was not sure if this was good policy. Council Member Ashcraft concurred with Council Member Jordan. He stated that if you were talking about a parent who wanted to give two or three acres to their children so that they could live beside them he felt that this was subdividing the tract and not a subdivision development. Mr. Herron stated that by definition it was and this could not be distinguished from a legal standpoint. Council Member Ashcraft asked if the only issue was people that wanted to build one home. Mr. Herron stated that this was what he understood Council to say and staff was here to serve Council. He requested that if this is the language Council would like, that the City Attorney confirm whether or not this language can be incorporated into the Ordinance. Council Member Jordan reiterated that he wanted the City to be able to accommodate the people who are trying to move a relative in beside of them. Mr. Herron stated that staff would word this to just simply exempt the one lot. The reason would not be stated because the reason was irrelevant to the Ordinance. Mayor Kilgore stated that if the Ordinance was amended to allow for one lot subdivisions, he would like to see this on a case-by-case basis. Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore questioned if this could be done, because a moratorium is a moratorium. Mr. Herron stated that if you exempted one or two lots, it applied across the board regardless of the circumstance. City Attorney Sholar stated that if you tried to identify what is a crisis or what are the exceptions you are going to allow or not allow, then you will start getting into gray areas that open up areas for potential challenges. He suggested that if Council felt that a two -lot subdivision for this one house -type situation was not considered a major development, he suggested that Council go with this recommendation. Council Member Jordan recommended that staff work on a revised Ordinance and bring the Regular City Council Meeting June 17,2008 Page 154 matter back before Council at a later date. Mr. Herron advised that staff would prepare a draft Ordinance to be brought back for Council consideration at the July 15 City Council Meeting. n Mayor Kilgore continued the public hearing until the July 1.5, 2008 City Council Meeting. Item No. 19. Fiscal Year 2008-2009 Budget. A. Public Hearing. Mayor Kilgore opened the duly advertised public hearing. City Manager Meadows stated that at several meetings, discussions have been held regarding the FY 2008- 2009 budget. As the budget currently stands and as presented to Council, total funds are $134,535,447. The major items of note including reducing the tax rate from $0.55 cents to $0.50 cents, establishing a stormwater utility which would have a stormwater utility fee for residential customers of $4 per month beginning January 1, 2009, and a 4%2% water and sewer rate increase effective July 1, 2008 for bills issued on or after July 1 which reflects the tremendous number of capital projects that the City will be undertaking in the upcoming years with regard to water and wastewater. Mayor Kilgore stated for the record that the stormwater fee was mandated by the Federal Government. Council Member Jordan stated that there were still unanswered questions to the budget and he would like to have responses. B. Action — Motion to Continue. Council Member Jordan made a motion to continue this public hearing until June 18, 2008. Council Member Nash seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Ashcraft, Jordan, Nash, Smith, Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore, and Mayor Kilgore NAYS: None Item No. 20.

Public Comment Period. A. Ms. Annie Jordan. Ms. Annie Jordan apologized for not being able to attend the June 3, 2008 City Council Meeting to express her concern over the Winchester neighborhood. She stated that in 2005, members of the Winchester neighborhood approached Council and asked for Regular City Council Meeting June 17,2008 Page 155 a Teen Center or a Youth Center where their children can go and get off the streets. Ms. Jordan stated that school was out and the children were walking up and down the streets with nothing to (Th do regardless of the weather situation. She stated that the Winchester area needed an institution for the children to go and have clean entertainment and a clean atmosphere. In this institution she would like to see a computer room, study room, and entrainment room. Ms. Jordan stated that they wanted to give the youth a chance and requested that Council do the same.

Council Member Smith seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Ashcraft, Jordan, Nash, Smith, Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore, and Mayor Kilgore NAYS: None Upon return from Closed Session, Mayor Kilgore recessed the June 17, 2008 at 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 17, 2008, to be reconvened at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18, 2008. Wednesday, June 17, 2008 Mayor Kilgore reconvened the Regular City Council Meeting at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18, 2008. A quorum was present. Item No. 23. Fiscal Year 2008-2009 Budget. A. Public Hearing (Continued from June 17, 2008). Mayor Kilgore opened the continued duly advertised public hearing. There being no other speakers, Mayor Kilgore closed the public hearing. Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore stated that there was not enough time to provide missing responses to -the Outside Agency Committee from Union Smart Start. He did provide a handout to Council that displayed the money Union Smart Start received from the Monroe City Council, how the funding was spent, and who provided additional funding. B. Action — Motion to Provide Outside Agency Funding to Union Smart Start. Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore made a motion to appropriate $52,000 to Union Smart Start through the Outside Agency funding. Council Member Ashcraft seconded the motion. Council Member Jordan stated that this program was different from anything else the City did through the Outside Agency funding. He stated that the Outside Agency Committee was trying to perform due diligence in making sure that public dollars were being allocated in a way that would not cause any question as to how those monies were being used. He advised that the Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Page 156 Outside Agency Committee was trying to do it the proper way by using the same kinds of means the United Way used to determine whether or not their agencies are being good stewards of their donors' dollars. Council Member Jordan stated that one of the things he had hoped not to bring out as a part of these discussions but was going to because he felt it was important and it lead to why he wanted to ensure that these monies were being used in a way that that the Outside Agency Committee was hoped they were being used. The money that is given for the teacher allows the church program to operate in a way that entices people to bring their kids over there for daycare services because it is a "More at Four" program and the teacher is there. He advised that the City became a part of that overall program. Council Member Jordan stated that on May 31, 2008, there was a third article that came out in The Charlotte Observer relating to an investigation that was going on where Elizabeth Baptist Church invested $200,000 of the church's money, the pastor invested $25,000 of his money, and one of the other members invested $25,000 of their money with someone who is supposed to be a securities broker. Council Member Jordan stated that it did not matter to him; he was just bringing it to the attention of Council. He felt that Council had a fiduciary responsibility to the citizens of Monroe to make sure that seed money was going to be given to a program that entices people to carry their kids to participate in that program that there is not a co -mingling of monies between the monies that go into the daycare program and the monies- that go into the general fund of the church. Council Member Jordan stated that he did not know how this would be done but that it needed to be done in order to make sure that the City was not allowing the City's money to be seed monies that act as a drawing card for a "More at Four" program and there is the possibility that there is a co -mingling of monies in the "More at Four" program or the daycare program and the church's general fund where the general funds in the church are being used in a manner that the citizens of Monroe would probably not approve of. Mayor Kilgore asked if the program was going to continue this year or was the trailer being closed down and moved. Assistant City Manager Herron stated that the State had contacted staff about getting a letter of approval regarding zoning specifically that all of the structures meet zoning requirements. Mr. Herron stated that in an effort to provide this information, staff notified Elizabeth Baptist that the trailer that was located out front was given a temporary permit by City Council that expired in 2004. Therefore, staff was unable to provide the letter that everything meets requirements. He stated that it was staff's understanding that the State needed that letter t� continue to issue the proper documents. Beyond that, Mr. Herron stated that he was not aware what the State was doing at this point or the status of the matter. He stated that the City was unable to issue a letter advising that everything was in compliance at this point and time. Mayor Kilgore asked for the status of the trailer. Mr. Herron stated that this was not able to be renewed. Staff allowed a certain amount of leverage to complete the school year and work out any problems with the State. They have until August 1 before any action or enforcement would take place. Council Member Jordan called for the question. Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Page 157 The motion to provide Outside Agency funding in the amount of $52,000 to Union Smart Start passed with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Ashcraft, Keziah, Smith, and Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore NAYS: Council Members Jordan, Nash, and Mayor Kilgore C. Motion to Rescind Funding. Council Member Smith made a motion to rescind the funding if the "More at Four" program was not approved for next year. Council Member Ashcraft seconded the motion, which passed unanimously with the following votes: AYES: Council Members Ashcraft, Jordan, Keziah, Nash, Smith, Mayor Pro Tem Bazemore, and Mayor Kilgore NAYS: None Council Member Nash stated that Council was provided with a Cash Flow Statement dated June 3, 2008 showing a tax rate of $0.50 cents and today a Cash Flow Statement was provided showing a difference in the funds. She requested clarification of the approximate $3 million in the difference. Budget Analyst Mary Lou Clark advised that changes have been made in the budget since the Cash Flow Statement of June 3. Mr. Fatland stated that since the budget of June 3, staff handed out a recap sheet totaling $127.2 million. The balance is now at $134.5 million. He stated that the major changes included adding the solid waste enterprise fund ($2.7 million), adding the new medical fund ($5 million), adding the new workers' compensation fund ($2 million) which includes all the cash that was in the self- insurance set aside account, plus adding a new property and casualty internal service fund ($570,000). Ms. Clark reviewed and explained the major changes in revenues. She advised that the solid waste revenue ($2,725,000) was moved out to its own separate fund so it would not be in the General Fund revenue, a slight adjustment was made to the vehicle property taxes, funding for workers' compensation and property damages was added in and in doing so, money had to be transferred out of the General Fund to the Airport Fund, Parks and Recreation Fund, and Golf Course Fund. She stated that this would lower General Fund revenue because it is a transfer out. Ms. Clark advised that money was also transferred out to Downtown Monroe. She advised that these monies were split up by each fund and would need to be individually calculated to determine the funding if Council so desired. Council Member Nash stated that the growth in 2006 and. 2007 was 4.3% last year and this year staff was projecting 3% on real property. Mr. Fatland advised that this was determined using the revaluation numbers provided by Union County. He advised that in future years beyond that, staff projected another 3% growth. Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Page 158 t l n Council Member Ashcraft asked if staff projected this to be conservative. Mr. Fatland stated that based on the projections of the economy and slow down, staff decided to be conservative and drop it down 1 %. He advised that each year, like the CIP, staff will be updating the five-year forecast. Council Member Smith asked how much of the tax value is residential and how much is commercial and industrial. Mr. Fatland and Economic Development Director Plate advised that it was approximately 60% residential/40% commercial. Council Member Smith asked staff to verify this information in hopes of setting a goal. Staff will research this information and provide it to Council. Mr. Plate advised that there would not be a breakdown of commercial/industrial. It would be residential and non-residential. Council Member Nash stated that on the employee contribution to employee medical, it listed $282,000. She stated that she was told that this was a one-time expense. If so, why is it projected for six years. Mr. Fatland advised that the cost would not go away. He explained that when you increased something, it was going to be there in the future. The City will have to deal with that obligation next year as well. Mr. Fatland advised that if you took out appropriation from fund balance, it dealt with the current year and would have to be addressed again next year. He stated that if taxes were raised, it would take care of itself automatically. He stated that the Insurance Committee would be looking at ways to address the partnership between the employer and the employee for next year's rates. Mr. Fatland stated, as mentioned earlier, the money collected by the Internal Service Funds from all the Enterprise Funds was recurring income. Item No. 24. Closed Session Pursuant to N.C.G.S. 143-318.11(a)(6). Council Member Smith moved to go into Closed Session pursuant to N.C.G.S. 143-318.11(a)(6).

Ordinance to Amend Code of Ordinances — Chapter 95: Youth Protection — Definitions. Upon return from Closed Session, Council Member Jordan advised that an amendment needed to be made to the Youth Protection Ordinance. He referred the matter to City Attorney Sholar for further explanation. City Attorney Sholar stated that upon review of the Youth Protection/Juvenile Curfew Ordinance, a typographical error was discovered which included Sunday during both curfew restrictions periods and omitted Friday. Staff recommended that Council adopt an Ordinance correcting the error and including Sunday in the 11:00 p.m. curfew and Friday in the 12:01 curfew. Council Member Jordan moved to adopt Ordinance 0-2008-30: Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Page 159 n ORDINANCE AMENDING TITLE IX, CHAPTER 95 OF THE MONROE CODE OF ORDINANCES 0-2008-30 BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF MONROE THAT TITLE IX, CHAPTER 95 OF THE MONROE ORDINANCES IS HEREBY AMENDED AS FOLLOWS: TEXT AMENDMENT Section 1.

No work authorized by a permit that has expired may thereafter be performed until a new permit has been secured. (G.S. 160A-418) Therefore, the following fees will be charged for permits that are allowed to expire: 1. Permit expiring after six months A. A new, second permit will be issued within six months of the expiration date of the first permit with a minimum fee of $40. B. Time that lapses beyond six months of the expiration date will require the full amount of fees to be charged. 2. Permit expiring after 12 months A. A new, second permit will be issued with the full amount of fees being charged. NOTE: Should a permit be issued and the individual the permit is issued to decides not to pursue said work, a refund of the fees collected will be made up to one year of the issuance date of the original permit, minus a minimum fee of $40.

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 3/4 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 capacity fees for meter sizes greater than 2 inch when, based on industrial pretreatment permit applications, flow projections, or other flinformation, the water or sewer flow volumes exceed 150% of allowable flow. Fees shall be based on $4.60 per gallon for sewer and $3.60 per gallon for water. In no case shall the fees be less than shown in the schedule. Regular City Council Meeting June 17, 2008 Exhibit "A" Page 97 of 100 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 capacity fee amount, e\ the Director of Water Resources and Director of Finance and Administration, with the 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 Capacity 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 capacity 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 capacity fee shall be charged. No capacity 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, capacity fees may be due as follows: (1) if the new development includes a larger water 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 3/4" residential lawn irrigation water service connections do not require payment of capacity fees provided that domestic water service for the property is also being obtained by separate meter from the City of Monroe.
