PUBLIC HEARING

Mayor Hopkins stated a public hearing was being held concerning the proposed amendment to the 2012 Consolidated Urban Renewal Plan.

Greg Jenkins of the Greater Muscatine Chamber of Commerce and Industry stated the GMCCI supports this proposal and feels from an economic development standpoint it is extremely good for Muscatine. He asked that City Council support the proposed development.

Kevin Shea, the attorney representing CAM II Warehouse Inc., stated his client is asking City Council to reject conferring TIF tax status and other monetary benefits to the Gordon Sevig Trucking Company (GSTC) because it will be creating an unfair competitive advantage for GSTC against CAM II, an already existing Muscatine business. He stated GSTC should be required to pay the same property taxes and operate under the same rules as CAM II.

Councilmember Phillips asked where CAM II is located.

Mr. Shea stated the facility consists of 13 buildings and is located at 6110 49th Street South (Progress Park). He stated that almost 100% of the products at the facility belong to GPC. He pointed out the new facility will be located 2 ½ blocks from CAM II.

Councilmember Spread asked how many employees were working at this location, and Mr. Shea said there were approximately 60 in the Muscatine area.

Councilmember Fitzgerald asked Mr. Shea if his client had been given notice.

Mr. Shea stated that one year was negotiated in January 2013 at which time they were told the contract would not be renewed.

Councilmember Fitzgerald asked if there was a 90 day clause for GPC to get out of contracts with companies such as CAM II.

Mr. Shea stated CAM II's contract, which is a service contract, has always had a 180 day clause.

Public hearing closed.

PUBLIC HEARING

Mayor Hopkins stated a public hearing was being held concerning a proposed development agreement with Wal-View Developments Limited Company/GSTC Logistics Inc.

Kevin Shea, representing the CAM II Warehouse located in Progress Park, stated he does not feel the proposed project will add diversity to Muscatine because there are already warehouses in the community. He stated that if anyone is going to get TIF proceeds, it should be CAM II and not Wal-View. He stated the project will not generate new jobs but rather will take existing jobs from CAM II. He stated the city is going to give Wal-View $5 million to compete with CAM II who has been paying city taxes for almost 20 years. He stated the tax dollars paid by CAM II will be helping their competitor. He stated Wal-View has already broken ground and is going to build whether they are given the $5 million or not.

Councilmember Spread asked if CAM II had applied for TIF in the past.

Mr. Shea stated CAM II had applied for TIF benefits in 2006 when it purchased the Newcomb property on Hershey Avenue but the benefits were denied because the foundation was already in the ground.

Councilmember Spread asked if that was grounds for turning down the TIF request, and City Administrator Gregg Mandsager answered yes.

Mr. Shea stated his client is not asking City Council to keep Wal-View out but is asking that the city not provide them with TIF benefits.

City Administrator Mandsager stated that a number of years ago the city was asked to take Progress Park out of the TIF area and designate it as a tax abatement area.

Councilmember Fitzgerald asked about the difference between tax abatement and TIF.

Community Development Director Steve Boka stated that under tax abatement, taxes are forgiven on a declining scale as opposed to TIF where they go back to the developer. He stated the proposed development is in the same TIF area as Newcomb's and Curry's. He then explained why the TIF request from CAM II was denied for the Newcomb property located on Hershey Avenue.

Councilmember Spread stated it was his understanding that any new development that takes place at Progress Park would be eligible for tax abatement and not TIF benefits.

City Administrator Mandsager stated that new facilities or facilities remodeled in Progress Park would be eligible for tax abatement.

Councilmember Fitzgerald asked if this proposed development was outside of the Progress Park Area, and Community Development Director Boka stated it was located in the South End TIF District which has been in existence since 2000.

Mr. Jenkins of GMCCI stated he feels this proposed development will drive economic development for that part of the community. He stated City Council has a great reputation where economic development is concerned.

Public hearing closed.

Site and concept plan for the proposed band shell on the riverfront approved.

Councilmember Fitzgerald stated that previous City Councils have worked to maintain the open areas on the riverfront. He stated he also had concerns about vandalism. He then stated he was not opposed to the band shell; however, he would not support its placement on the riverfront.

Mayor Hopkins asked Tom Bankhead, the architect who designed the proposed band shell, to address the glass issue.

Mr. Bankhead stated the glass panels are tempered and laminated and are somewhat bullet proof. He stated they are very tough.

Councilmember Fitzgerald stated he understands that tempered glass is strong when the face is hit with an object; however, it can break if the edges are hit.

Mr. Bankhead stated the lower panels will have trim pieces to protect the edges. He pointed out the band shell's unique design.

Councilmember Bynum asked for clarification on what City Council would be approving.

City Administrator Mandsager stated tonight's action includes approval of the site and basic design of the band shell. He stated that landscaping still needs to be addressed.

Mayor Hopkins stated the conceptual drawings probably have more trees than are necessary. He then stated he tends to ignore the feedback about protecting the view on the riverfront. He stated the proposed 40' by 60' band shell would be placed on top of the elevation currently on the riverfront and would only use 180' of the down river green space area. He stated the proposed band shell will take up very little space.

Mr. Bankhead stated there will not be any topographical changes to the site. He pointed out that trees would be an enhancement to the view of the river.

Mayor Hopkins pointed out that the request tonight is approval of the location and design of the band shell which will be done in two phases. He stated he would like to see the platform poured soon enough for a blues performance in September.

Mr. Bankhead said he would like to see one contractor responsible for the entire band shell project.

City Administrator Mandsager stated it was important for City Council to understand that if funding does not become available, there will be a concrete slab in the green space on the riverfront.

There was discussion concerning the footings for the concrete slab.

Councilmember Spread asked if any funding has been received for the proposed band shell.

Mayor Hopkins answered no. He stated this was the last hurdle before fund raising could begin.

Resolution adopted approving the amendment to the 2012 Consolidated Urban Renewal Plan.

Councilmember Spread stated we can do this but the question is should we do this. He stated it is his understanding the proposed project is eligible for TIF proceeds and that businesses located in Progress Park are eligible for tax abatement proceeds.

City Administrator Mandsager stated there is nothing preventing the city from putting Progress Park into a new TIF District if City Council chooses to do so. He then explained the differences between the requirements for TIF and tax abatement. He stated the project is paying for itself because only new tax dollars are being used. He also noted that GSTC is installing a significant amount of public infrastructure.

Resolution adopted approving the proposed development agreement with Wal-View Developments Limited Company/GSTC Logistics Inc.

Councilmember LeRette asked how this proposed agreement compares to other agreements we have at this time.

City Administrator Mandsager stated they are all different because they are tailored to each individual project.

Councilmember LeRette asked if the "not to exceed $5 million" is an estimated amount.

City Administrator Mandsager stated the estimate was $4.9 million.

Councilmember Spread asked what the assessed value was for the proposed development.

City Administrator Mandsager stated it was assessed at $18 million which is the minimum amount.

There was further discussion on the proposed development agreement.

Resolution adopted accepting completed work for the Golf Course Irrigation Project and authorized final payment to Midwest Irrigation LLC of East Dubuque, Illinois.

Resolution adopted setting a public hearing on the Dawson Street Reconstruction Project for Thursday, July 11, 2013, at 7:00 p.m.

Resolution adopted setting a public hearing on the 2013 Asphalt Overlay Project for Thursday, July 11, 2013, at 7:00 p.m.

Three-year contract approved with Genesis Health Systems for Employee Assistance Services effective July 1, 2013.

City of Muscatine's Employee Handbook approved.

City Administrator Mandsager stated the wording had been changed to include the site in the State Code concerning "conflict of interest". He stated that the handbook can be emailed to those employees with email addresses and hard copies provided to those who do not. He stated everyone will be required to sign and turn in the acknowledgement form.

City's insurance renewal approved effective July 1, 2013.

Motion approved to authorize the purchase of a solar battery arrow board from Iowa Plains Signing Inc. of Slater, Iowa, in the amount of $4,920.

Councilmember Spread asked if this equipment would be used by outside contractors, and Public Works Director Randy Hill stated it will primarily be used in-house.

Change Order #2 approved for the Mad Creek Sewer Extension Project.

Letter of Understanding with McGladrey LLP approved for the Fiscal Year 2012/2013 City Audit with a fee of $42,750 for the basic audit and an additional fee of $2,650 for the Housing Program REAC audit.

Request approved from the Water Pollution Control Plant to authorize the issuance of purchase orders to Langman Construction in the amount of $53,510 for site excavation, installation of manholes, and replacement of pavement and to Mellon Associates in an amount not to exceed $4,000 for four DeZuric valves.

Water Pollution Control Director Jon Koch explained why he was requesting approval to replace four valves rather than the two that had been originally budgeted.

Councilmember Spread asked if this would require a budget amendment.

City Administrator Mandsager stated an amendment would not be necessary because the required funding will stay within the existing budget.

Contractual agreement approved with Muscatine Community College for video product and cablecast services effective July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2016.

Request approved from the Police Department to approve a Memorandum of Understanding for Allocation of the 2013 Justice Assistance Grant Direct Award in the amount of $18,833.

Under comments, Councilmember LeRette stated there would be no City Council meeting on July 4th and so he wished everyone a happy 4th of July.

Mayor Hopkins stated that earlier in the week Bob Allbee, President of Muscatine Community College, hosted nine college officials from Hebei Province. He stated there are more Chinese leaders who want to tour Muscatine Community College and other parts of Muscatine. He stated the city can probably anticipate a fairly steady flow of people from China.

Motion approved to go into Closed Session at 8:22 p.m. per State Code 21.5 to discuss property purchase.

Mayor Hopkins called the Closed Session to order at 8:29 p.m. Councilmembers present were LeRette, Fitzgerald, Bynum, Phillips, and Spread. Also present were City Administrator Gregg Mandsager, Finance Director Nancy Lueck, Public Works Director Randy Hill, and Community Development Director Steve Boka.

Motion approved to leave the Closed Session at 8:43 p.m.

The meeting adjourned at 8:44 p.m.

DeWayne Hopkins, Mayor
