Information only.



PUBLIC HEARING(S)

AB19272 1. Consideration of public comment regarding application for Bureau of Justice Grant in the amount of $22,744

Flo Simon, Deputy Chief, Police Department explained that the funds would be used to purchase hardware to outfit traffic motorcycles with Statewide Electronic Collision and Ticket Online Records (SECTOR) Equipment.

Council President Snapp opened the public hearing. No citizens spoke and the public hearing was closed.

Information only.


AB19273 2. Consideration of amendments to BMC Titles 20 and 21 code sections dealing with the annual Comprehensive Plan/Neighborhood Plan amendment process

“AN ORDINANCE RELATED TO LAND USE REGULATIONS, AMENDING BELLINGHAM MUNICIPAL CODE CHAPTER 20.20 AND SECTION 21.10.150.B.1. TO CLARIFY COMPREHENSIVE PLAN AMENDMENT PROCEDURES, ADD DOCKETING CRITERIA, AND REVISE THE DECISION CRITERIA.”

Greg Aucutt, Senior Planner reviewed the proposed amendments to BMC Titles 20 and 21. Regarding 20.20.080.B.1., the new language for 'who may apply' clarifies that any person can submit an application to place a non-site specific amendment on the docket, while a site specific amendment may only be requested by the property owner or his authorized agent.

Council Member Buchanan asked for clarity on the proposed language for BMC 20.20.030A.(1) specifically in the area of selecting proposals.

Mr. Aucutt replied that staff makes recommendations to the Planning Commission and the City Council. The list is reviewed and staff determines which ones can reasonably be done, given staff resources. Proposals go through a prioritization process and then recommendations are made. Ultimately it is the council that decides which proposals are docketed. If there are more than can reasonably be done within the year, then staff will make recommendations to the council.

Council President Snapp opened the public hearing.

Patrick McKee spoke in opposition to BMC 20.20.030 the Annual Docketing Criteria and 20.20.040 Decision Criteria. He made the following comments:
    · These criteria should be relegated to advices given to the Planning Commission and City Council in a staff report or handbook which would outline things to be considered in a land use decision.
    · These criteria should not be codified. This as an attempt by unelected staff to tell the elected members of this council how you [the city council] must make a decision.
    · There may be proposals which technically meet all of these criteria, which an elected member may disagree with and would vote against.
    · Council should not be put into a legally binding position.
    · Codifying the criteria is an open invitation to law suits.
    He added that it appears that the new language for 'who may apply' eliminates the possibility that anyone can petition the Planning Director, the Planning Commission or the City Council to put forward a site specific neighborhood plan amendment.

    There being no further comments, the public hearing was closed

    The Council and staff discussed the language relating to the docketing process at length. It was determined that the language was not clear with regard to site specific proposals and does not reflect the intent. It was agreed that the proposed ordinance should be postponed so that staff could clarify the language.

    WEISS / KNUTSON moved to postpone consideration for one week, to the next regular meeting, to clarify wording. MOTION CARRIED 7-0


    AB19274 3. Consideration of amendments to BMC Title 20 to change the setback and landscape requirements within Residential Planned and Industrial Planned zones.

    “AN ORDINANCE AMENDING THE BELLINGHAM MUNICIPAL CODE (BMC) 20.38.050.B. AND BMC 20.38.050.D. TO CHANGE THE SETBACK REQUIREMENTS FOR BUILDINGS, PARKING/LOADING AREAS, AND LANDSCAPING/SCREENING REQUIREMENTS WITHIN A RESIDENTIAL PLANNED AND INDUSTRIAL PLANNED ZONE, AND AMENDMENT BMC 20.12.030.C.2. REGARDING LANDSCAPING IN SETBACKS WITHIN AN INDUSTRIAL GENERAL USE TYPE.”

    Moshé Quinn, Planner reviewed the proposed changes to the code, and presented maps, diagrams and pictures illustrating the changes.

    The Proposed Industrial Plan code amendments would:
      • Reduce mandatory minimum setbacks between similar uses in the same zone.
      • Establish criteria to allow less intensive industrial uses to locate closer to the property line when abutting certain non-industrial zones.
      • Establish parking lot landscaping requirements that are consistent with CPTED principles and prohibit loading areas with a required setback.
      • Only require a wall of trees if a 25’ yard is required.
      • Implement the goals and policies of the Bellingham Comprehensive Plan.

    The proposed code amendments further improve the land use development code and provides clear and concise development standards; promote the efficient use of land; provide setback flexibility to improve site design options and incorporates CPTED principles. Staff and Planning Commission recommend approval.

    Council President Snapp opened the public hearing. No citizens spoke and the public hearing was closed.

    KNUTSON / WEISS moved approval for first and second reading. MOTION CARRIED 7-0

    Finance & Personnel
    Members: Chair, Michael Lilliquist; Barry Buchanan; Seth Fleetwood

    AB19279 1. An ordinance approving certain additions, betterments and improvements to the City’s combined Water and Sewage System and the issuance of “Water & Sewer Revenue Bonds, 2011”

    “AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY OF BELLINGHAM, WASHINGTON APPROVING CERTAIN ADDITIONS, BETTERMENTS AND IMPROVEMENTS TO THE CITY’S COMBINED WATER AND SEWAGE SYSTEM; AUTHORIZING THE ISSUANCE OF WATER AND SEWER REVENUE BONDS OF THE CITY IN THE AGGREGATE PRINCIPAL AMOUNT OF NOT TO EXCEED $48,000,000 TO PAY COSTS OF SAID IMPROVEMENTS; DELEGATING AUTHORITY TO APPROVE THE FINAL TERMS OF THE BONDS; AND RESERVING THE RIGHT TO ISSUE REVENUE BONDS ON A PARITY WITH THE BONDS UPON COMPLIANCE WITH CERTAIN CONDITIONS.”

    There was no recommendation from committee. During committee, council members had asked several questions which were addressed to John Carter, Finance Director. He provided a memo to council members in response to those questions, which is included in its’ entirety below.
      "What is the status of reserve accounts for previous bond issues?

      With a $48 million bond under the terms laid out, staff estimates that we would add $2,819,000 to the existing Bond Reserve Account. The existing reserve account has a balance of $2,351,923. As of August 1st due to the fact that the final payment is made on the 1999 Sewer Bond Issue the existing reserve account will be reduced to $1,736,334.

      Total Reserve Account balance will approximate $4,555,000 upon issuance of the 2011 bond issue as proposed.

      What is the cost of funding the Reserve Account requirement from bond proceeds?

      The cost of financing the reserve account from bond proceeds is the net of the interest paid on the borrowing less any interest earned for the investment of the reserve account.

      The differential in interest paid to interest earned is called arbitrage. A positive arbitrage means the city earns more in interest than the amount of interest paid on the bond. Conversely a negative arbitrage is incurred when the reserve account interest payment is higher than the interest earnings on those funds.

      Following is a quick summary of the differential at various interest rate spreads on $2,819,000.

      Calculating the annual amount of net interest paid to fund the reserve account from bond proceeds:

      Annual Amount
      1% Negative arbitrage $ 28,190
      2% Negative arbitrage $ 56,380
      3.5% Negative arbitrage $ 98,665

      1% Positive arbitrage $ (28,190)

      What is the cost of deferring the financing assuming a rising interest rate environment?

      If interest rates rise 50 basis points (1/2 of 1%) between now and issuance the annual payment on the 30 year bonds would be approximately $175,675. If rates rise 100 basis points the payment would rise about $351,350 per year.

      What does the total debt service payment of the Water/Sewer bond increase to with this bond?

      The 2011 D/S payment for the combine Water/Sewer funds is $4,596,396. Assuming a 30 year level D/S on the new bond as proposed would have the following D/S payments:

      2012 $ 4,595,000
      2013 $ 5,035,400
      2014 $ 5,051,600
      2015 $ 5,062,331
      2016 $ 5,072,431
      2017 $ 4,461,781
      2018 $ 4,467,831
      2019-2024 $ 3,700,000
      2025-2026 $ 3,297,000
      2027-2041 $ 2,817,000

      The debt service can be held constant through the use of a “Wrap” structure which would extend the average bond life and thereby slightly increase the Net Interest Cost by about 20-25 basis points.

      How is the capital plan of Sewer and Water fund proposed to be funded?

      The current capital plan over six years in summary projects that of the $142 million in capital projects that approximately $100 million will be funded through bonds. The remainder would be funded through existing Reserves and Cash flow of the funds.

      In the 2011-2016 Capital Plan three bond issues have been proposed:

      2011 Sewer bonds Projects to be funded include

      Waste water treatment plant expansion $35,000,000
      Inflow & Infiltration (I&I) projects $ 7,000,000
      Waste water plan Priority 1 projects $ 1,000,000

      2014 Sewer bonds-Projects to be funded

      Waste water treatment plant expansion $ 15,000,000
      Wet weather peak flow $ 20,500,000
      I&I projects $ 3,000,000
      Waste water plan Priority 1 projects $ 15,000,000

      2014 Water Bond-Projects to be funded
      Metering $ 8,300,000
      King Mt. Reservoir $ 6,000,000
      Water treatment plant - Pre Treatment $ 3,000,000

      Why can’t existing Reserves and Revenues cover the capital needs?

      The city adopted a rate structure for Water and Sewer services in 2007. System demand charges within the Waste water fund were forecasted to be $3 million per year. Due to the construction slowdown this revenue stream is now approximately $1 million per year. This $2 million a year shortfall has been substituted for through the use of fund reserves and delaying capital projects. The Waste water fund had a net deficit of $3.4 million in 2009 and $1.5 million in 2010.

      What will rates need to be in future years to pay for the entire financing plan?

      The existing rate structure is scheduled to be reviewed early in 2012. This analysis has a large number of assumptions and will need to be carefully thought through. We would expect that the rate analysis will show the need to increase rates beyond the expected rate of inflation.

      Although these rates are very important the current bond issue can be placed with debt service that currently fits within the investment criteria for the utility."
    Council Member Weiss asked that the Priority 1 projects be described:

    Ted Carlson, Public Works Director said the Priority 1 projects that were identified in the Sewer Comprehensive Plan adopted in 2009 include a mix of pumping and lifting stations and replacing segments of trunk mains within the system. Projects were identified based on assumptions that were placed into models that had to do with growth projections that were identified in the Comprehensive Plan.

    Council Member Weiss asked about the I&I (Inflow & Infiltration) budget for the 2011 and 2014 bonds. The city anticipates spending $5 million on a pilot project in 2012. Once the impacts of the pilot project are understood and if it turns out that the city would like to pursue further I&I on a larger basis, could the costs be integrated into the 2014 bond issue?

    Mr. Carlson concurred and said, staff will continue to work with the Department of Ecology (DOE). If the pilot project is successful, staff can then work with DOE to have the Comprehensive Plan updated to address the Wet Weather Facility which needs to be online in 2016. The 2011 bond has the flexibility to move bond proceeds from any project within the list. Staff would like to move forward with the initial bond issue and will be able to have a better feel for the 2014 bond issue.

    KNUTSON / BORNEMANN moved approval for first and second reading.

    Council Member Weiss opposes the bond issue. He has concerns about the growth projections and feels that with an I&I program and pre-treatment options, the city may not need to do the program as proposed.

    MOTION CARRIED 6-1, WEISS opposed.
