Called to order at 4:01 p.m. A Overview of Public Property Finance Contractual Obligations (PPFCO) to be used in funding 6 patrol vehicles and partially fund the sewer vacuum truck -- Micki Rundell, Director of Finance and Administration Rundell explained PPFCO's. She said the average life of the fleet was well over four years, so they rolled up the capitol replacement to lower the life of the fleet to 2 1/2 years which also lowers the maintenance cost. She said this will be paid from existing money in the Fleet Fund, saying the vacuum truck will be funded through the Cimarron Hills Development Agreement. She said of the total issuance, $130,000 will go to the vacuum truck, the rest is fleet and issuance costs of 2.38% guaranteed for the 3 -year life of the issue. She said this reimburses the city for what has already been spent. B Presentation and discussion regarding water/wastewater capacity as it relates to Del Webb -- Jim Briggs, Assistant City Manager for Utility Operations and Paul Brandenburg, City Manager Brandenburg said the purpose of this item is to make Council fully aware of the meaning of the water/wastewater agreement with Del Webb and how it affects the City's capacity. Briggs did a presentation regarding acre-foot production of water availability through contracts with the Alliance, Stillhouse Hollow through the BRA Agreement, Lake Georgetown, and well water. He said the City has adequate water through 2052, and we are currently paying $34.50 per acre/foot. He also briefed the Council on the ability to handle the wastewater needs of the City, saying the City will "run thin" on permitted capacity in 2013. He said there is the possibility of a regional system as well as expansion of the Pecan Branch Wastewater Treatment Plant. He said the San Gabriel Park Wastewater Treatment Plant cannot be expanded without an "off pipe" to carry the wastewater beyond the Aquifer Recharge Zone. Sansing asked about re -use rather than discharge. Briggs said the treated effluent is currently being used for irrigation, but once water is put in a river, it belongs to the State and cannot be retrieved. There was discussion regarding the current efforts with effluent at the City of Austin. There was brief discussion regarding impact fees. Briggs told Council the current impact fees are $8.25 for water $6.00 for sewer, for a total of $14.25.
