He said the property owners will receive notices and those 38 properties will be added to the tax rolls to be City Council Meeting Minutes/September 23, 2003 Page 3 of 8 Pages collected. He said since 1995, GIS systems have been added to the process at the Appraisal District, and those kind of mistakes should not happen again. Nelon asked how much time can be given to the people regarding payment of the back taxes. Deborah Hunts aid Senate Bill 727, passed I ast session, allows omitted property until January 31, 2005 to pay the five years of back taxes. She said she is prepared to offer, for this one incident, the opportunity for those taxpayers to make payments as they see fit from the date they receive the tax bill until January 31, 2005. Evans said the people effected by this problem live in his district and he wants them to have as much time as possible to pay off the back taxes. He asked if the Council could waive any penalty and interest on the amount due. Hunt said prior to January 31 2005, Council has the right to waive the interest. Evans said he would like to do a motion on a future agenda. Rundell said she will consult with the tax attorneys and City Attorney.

Kirby recused himself and left the dais. Snell asked if the service station is included. Benton said it becomes part of the plat, but not part of the site plan. She said it is not a part of the PUD Development Plan nor part of the other agreements, saying this establishes it as a legal platted lot instead of a tract left outside of the property owned by the Wolf Family. Evans asked if there were any way to "dress up" the corner. Charlie Crossfield, representing Simon Property Group, said Simon has a contract with the Wolfs and there will be restrictions to make sure the tract harmonizes with the remainder of the property as much as possible.

Begin immediately to address the short-term facility needs that include: Library, Community Center, Recration Center, Inforamtion Technology and Fire Station 1 5. Determine a solution for creating more space for the Library as the first step in implementing the plan. 6.

Smith asked for clarification on recommendation 3. Yantis explained that there are three major complexes for City government and that no further properties should be acquired that do not compliment those locations.

Motion by Snell, second by Sansing to approve the adoption of the City of Georgetown Facility Plan.

He said the Selection Committee recommends City Council Meeting Minutes/September 23, 2003 Page 6 of 8 Pages that Council approve a contract with GRW Willis, Inc.

Baldridge, Tourism Director and Main Street Manager and Paul Brandenburg, City Manager Brandenburg explained that this event is not listed as one of the events covered in the policy which are the Poppy Festival, Sertoma Fourth of July Celebration, BlueGrass Festival, Williamson County Sheriffs Posee Rodeo Parade, and the Christmas Stroll. He said he recommends that the policy not be changed, but that the Council grant the waiver by paying for the fee out of the Council Contingency Fund. Motion by Kirby, second by Sansing to approve paying for the special events fees (estimated at approximately $100) for the Art Walk out of the Council Contingency Fund. Approved 6-0. BB Review and possible action to award the bid for the Golden Oaks and the 8th and Church Street Wastewater Projects to Royal Vista, Inc. and to establish a project budget of $200,000.00 -- Glenn Dishong, Water Services Manager and Jim Briggs, Assistant City Manager for Utility Operations Dishong explained the item and asked for Council's action to combine two projects for cost savings and demonstrated the locations on a map.

CC Review and possible action to award the bid for rehabilitation of manholes to F & L Concrete Services of League City, Texas, and to establish a project budget of $140,000.00 -- Glenn Dishong, Water Services Manager and Jim Briggs, Assistant City Manger for Utility Operations Dishong explained the item, saying this project would be a combination of manhole repair and replacement in two different areas. Kirby questioned and Dlshong explained why these manholes need to be repaired so soon and how the new material will allow longer life for the repaired manholes. Motion by Sansing, second by Smith to approve the award of bid. Approved 6-0. DD Consideration and possible action to enter into a contract with Operations Management International, Inc. (OMI) for the operation of the City's water plants for a five-year period starting October 1, 2003, with the first year operating budget of $775,000.00 -- Glenn Dishong, Water Services Manager and Jim Briggs, Assistant City Manager for Utility Operations Dishong explained the item and noted that there are wording changes being done to satisfy both parties. Carls said she has received no objections from OMI regarding the version included in the packet. She said she will meet again with OMI on Thursday of this week. Eason said she is concerned about the opportunities for base rate adjustments, saying she understood that caused problems in the last contract amount. She said under Section 6.1, she disagrees with the automatic renewals and feels the contract should be rebid when the contract is complete. Dishong said the OMI proposal included increases in the cost due to flow and normal price escalators, which he said is expected and is consistant with the RFP. Carls said the wording regarding the renewal can be revised to make it clearer. Snell asked for language that would indicate that Council would, before the end of the contract, either decide to enter negotiations on the current contractor or put out another RFP. Briggs agreed and noted that there is a 180 -day provision when the City can determine not to renew the contract and instead, put it out for bids. Smith expressed concern with the word "mutual." Carls confirmed that Council wishes to retain the option to renew the contract or decide to go out for another bid at the end of five years. Kirby said he feels the base rate and volumetric rate should not be re -negotiated four months before the end of the year. He said he thinks this matter has been shrouded in mystery and confusion from the beginning. He said he is also concerned that the water/wastewater contracts have been split between the two providers, and said he now understands that there is also a problem with negotiating the contract with BRA. He said a firm bid by one contractor should outweigh a negotiated bid with the other contractor. City Council Meeting Minutes/September 23, 2003 Page 7 of 8 Pages Nelon stated that everything about this item has been done in the public and the Council has officially acted. He said the decision has been made and now just the wording changes are what is to be finalized. Smith acknowledged that this item has been discussed in detail. Kirby asked that both contracts be delayed. Evans said he thinks the Council needs to receive a copy of the original contract along with a copy of the current changes. Motion by Sansing, second by Snell to approve the contract with the clarification of the wording at Section 6.1. Snell clarified Evans' and Kirby's concerns about the figures. Briggs explained that the figures reconcile. Smith said this contract reflects what was voted on by Council. Approved 5-1. (Kirby opposed) Brandenburg suggested and Briggs agreed that the requested analysis will be made and delivered in hard copy to the Councilmembers' boxes. EE Consideration and possible action to enter into a contract with Operations Management International, Inc. (OMI) to extend the current operating agreement for the City's wastewater plants for October 2003 with an estimated cost of $90,706.00 -- Glenn Dishong, Water Services Manager and Jim Briggs, Assistant City Manager for Utility Operations Dishong explained that the extension is needed in order to complete the negotiations with the Brazos River Authority. He said it would be a day-to-day contract under the same conditions as the existing contract. He said the only difference in the price would be for maintenance or repairs. Eason asked if the repairs would come to Council for approval. Dishong said if the repair exceeded $15,000, it would come back to the Council for approval. Motion by Smith, second by Sansing to approve the extension of the contract. Approved 6-0. FF Consideration and possible action to award the bid and approve the project budget for construction of Shell Road Realignment and Waterline Improvements to Chasco Contracting of Round Rock in the amount of $832,500.00 -- Mark Miller, Transportation Services Manager and Jim Briggs, Assistant City Manager for Utility Operations Dishong explained the item and noted that the primary funding would come from the Shell Road Public Improvement District, with additional funding from the Water Fund.
