Agenda Item No. 3 -- Presentation, discussion and possible action on the City of College Station 2001-2002 Proposed Budget.

 

Budget and Strategic Planning Manager Jeff Kersten presented a detailed overview of the proposed budget.  The proposed FY 2001-2002 annual budget totaled $154,835,922 for all funds.  Of this amount, $119,176,064 was proposed for operations and maintenance expenditures and $35,659,858 proposed for capital improvement projects.  The budget was presented in three key budget themes. 

 

ü     Strategic Planning

ü     Current Service Budget

ü     Strategic Expansion certain services and activities

 

He stated that the proposed budget was based on the current ad valorem valuation tax of 0.4293 per $100 of assessed valuation.  Total Debt Service portion is $0.2631 and General Fund portion is $0.1662.  Total tax revenues are projected to increase by 7.5% due to new value added to the tax roll and increases in appraised values. 

 

Mr. Kersten outlined key decision points:

 

ü     $9 million interim CIP-3 cents, ($9 million is not included in the proposed budget)

ü     Operations and Maintenance costs associated with Veteran’s Park and Phase 1 of Fire Station #5. 

ü     Expand Street Maintenance Service Levels by moving Drainage Maintenance to Drainage Utility Fund.

 

The Electric and Water revenues are based on current rate structures.  The proposed budget also included a wastewater rate increase of 7%.  This rate increase is needed due to the additional debt service associated with the expansion of the Lick Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The proposed budget also included a sanitation rate increase for commercial customers of 8%.  This increase is needed to fund an additional commercial collection route and to meet the fiscal policies of the City.

 

Mr. Kersten explained that the budget must be adopted by September 27, 2001 and the tax rate must be adopted by September 30, 2001.  He noted that the Special Budget Workshop Meetings would be held on August 22, 2001, August 28, 2001 and September 5, 2001.

 

No action was taken.

Regular Meeting

 

Regular Agenda Item No. 11.1 -- Public hearing, discussion and possible action on an ordinance rezoning 2.497 acres out of the Robert Stevenson Survey League A-P located at 4121 State Highway 6 South from C-3 Planned Commercial and A-P Administrative Professional to C-1 General Commercial.

 

Staff Planner Jessica Jimmerson presented an overview of the rezoning case.  The applicant has requested this rezoning in order to prepare the property for future development.  The landowner hopes to use the property for a restaurant, however C-1 zoning would allow uses ranging from offices, hotels to retail stores and service stations. 

 

The subject property is located on the east side of Highway 6, and surrounded by undeveloped C-3 Planned Commercial and land that has been in an A-O Agricultural Open holding pattern since annexation.  The 350 by 300 ft. tract is currently zoned C-3 Planned Commercial and A-P Administrative Professional 

 

The Thoroughfare plan showed the future Barron Road extension south of the subject property.  An extension of Barron Road is planned SH 6 to Rock Prairie road to include an overpass and highway interchange.  Also, a major north-south collector was planned east of the subject property, parallel to State Highway 6.  The property is located as such that it would have no impact on the design or construction of either an overpass at Barron Road or the north-south major collector.  The design of the overpass is in the future.  A future entrance ramp on State Highway 6 will be developed in the vicinity of this tract.  This will have some impact on access to the tract; it will not create the same impacts and safety concerns as an exit ramp. 

 

The Land Use Plan depicted this area as Regional Retail.  C-1 is an appropriate zoning classification in retail regional areas. 

 

Veronica Morgan, Mitchell and Morgan Engineers,  511 University Drive stated that the C-1 zoning request is applicable and she concurred with staff’s presentation.

 

Mayor McIlhaney opened the public hearing.  No one spoke.  She closed the public hearing.

 

Mayor Pro Tem Mariott made a motion approving the rezoning of 2.497 acres located at 4121 State Highway 6 South from C-3 to C-1.  Motion seconded by Councilman Silvia.

 

After a brief discussion, Councilman Garner made a motion to postpone this agenda item so the applicant and Ms. Morgan had an opportunity to discuss and consider C-B Zoning as suggested

 

by the Council.  Motion seconded by Councilman Hazen, which carried unanimously, 7-0.  This item was discussed further in the agenda. 

 

Regular Agenda Item No. 11.2 -- Public hearing, discussion and possible action on three ordinance amendments affecting the Planned Development district (PDD) to reinstate PDD regulations, to validate PDD’s that were approved this year and establishing a Planned Development District policy.

 

Senior Planner Sabine Kuenzel presented four components to address the expiration of the PDD zoning district.  The PDD District expired on January 1, 2001.   The four components included a Zoning Ordinance amendment reinstating the PDD, a Subdivision Regulations amendment to tie future PDD subdivision decisions to a previously approved PDD plan, a Code of Ordinances amendment that validates three PDD'S that were submitted prior to January 1, 2001 but approved after the PDD expired, and the proposed PDD policy. 

 

The Planning and Zoning Commission and staff recommended approval of the ordinances presented in the packet.

Regular Agenda Item No. 11.6 -- Presentation, discussion and possible action on a resolution establishing the sale prices of cemetery spaces in the College Station municipal cemetery.

 

Ross Albrecht, Forestry Superintendent presented recommendation from the Cemetery Committee and the Parks and Recreation staff regarding the sale price of cemetery spaces and the designation of cremate spaces in the College Station Cemetery. 

 

The Parks and Recreation Department Staff and the Cemetery Committee developed the idea of creating a cremate section in the city cemetery as a means to memorialize a recent large donation

to the endowment fund.  The space designation did not previously exist; a sales price should be established.  The recommended sale price of the cremate spaces is $250.00 each.

 

City staff and the Cemetery Committee reviewed the current prices for the existing standard and infant spaces.  The Cemetery Committee and staff differ on the standard space recommendation.  Staff recommended increasing the standard spaces from $400.00 to $600.00 each, and to increase infant spaces from $100.00 to $200.00 each.  Also, staff recommended that cremate spaces be

 

 

 

priced at $200.00 each.  Staff estimates that on average, the city will need between $250.00 to            

$350.00 per standard space for perpetual care of the city cemetery.  The Cemetery Committee recommended setting the standard spaces from $400.00 to $500.00 each, cremate spaces at $250.00 each and infant spaces remain at $100.00 each.

 

After consideration of the proposed fees, staff recommended setting the cemetery rates as outlined below:

 

Standard spaces from $400.00 to $600.00

Creatmate spaces established at $250.00

Infant Spaces remain at $100.00

 

The fees recommended by staff will potentially meet or exceed the 80% level of total cost recovery for the operation and maintenance cost of the cemetery.

 

Councilman Massey made a motion approving Resolution Number 8-9-01-11.06 increasing fees by $200.00 for each standard space and set a fee of $250.00 per space for cremate spaces.  Motion seconded by Councilman Silvia, which unanimously, 7-0.
