AND WE SERVE BOTH INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL CUSTOMERS, INTERNAL WELLBEING, THE FLEET SERVICES THAT WE PROVIDE FOR POLICE AND FIRE, BEAT STREETS, SIDEWALK, POTABLE WATER, OR JUST RESPONDING TO EMERGENCY FLOODING SITUATION OVER THIS WEEKEND.

WE DO EVERYTHING THAT IMPACTS THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF OUR CITIZENS.

THANK YOU.

[4. PUBLIC COMMENTS]

NOW WE'LL MOVE ON TO PUBLIC COMMENTS.

UM, JUST TO REMIND EVERYONE, UH, YOU HAVE THREE MINUTES, PLEASE STATE YOUR NAME AND BEING THAT THIS IS NOT AN AGENDA ITEM COUNCIL ISN'T ABLE TO COMMENT BACK.

AND WE HAVE ONE PERSON WHO SIGNED UP FOR PUBLIC FOR PUBLIC COMMENTS.

MR JIM FONTENEAU.

THANK YOU MAYOR FORD AND CITY COUNCIL.

UM, I COME BEFORE YOU REPRESENTING METTA CREEK ASSOCIATION.

I HAVE BEEN THE PRESIDENT OR, UH, THIS WAS GOING ON MY SIXTH YEAR.

SO I KIND OF TELL YOU I'M SORT OF A SLOW LEARNER.

UM, OUR BOARD IS CHALLENGED WITH MANAGING THREE DIFFERENT TYPES OF RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT, SINGLE FAMILY, PATIO AND TOWNHOMES.

THE SUBDIVISION IS COMPRISED OF 750 LOTS, PLATTE, IT FROM SECTION ONE TO SIX.

THE DISPUTE THAT I'M BRINGING TO YOU AND IT IS A DISPUTE.

I DON'T LIKE TO DO THIS IN PUBLIC, BUT THE DISPUTE IS, IS CENTERED AROUND SECTION FOUR, WHICH IS COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS THE PATIO HOMES.

UH, EXCEPT FOR THE RESIDENT LOTS.

THERE IS A QUESTION AS TO WHETHER OR NOT THAT SECTION FOUR IS PRIVATE OF PUBLIC ACCESS PROPERTY.

FOR EXAMPLE,

[00:10:01]

STREETS, ALLEYS AND PARKS.

THE STANDARD VERBIAGE FOR DISCLOSURE.

MEMBERS OF THE ASSOCIATION BOARD INCLUDING ME AND A HOST OF SECTION FOUR HOMEOWNERS PRESENTED THIS DISPUTE AND QUESTION AND FORMAL MEETING WITH FORMER CITY MANAGER, MR SNIPES.

HELLO? HELLO.

WE'RE STILL HERE.

I WAS CUT OFF.

I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HEARD ME, BUT YES, WE, WE HEARD YOU.

FULL DISCLOSURE, I WANTED TO MENTION THAT WE DID MEET AND PRESENT THE DISPUTE AND QUESTIONED WITH IN A FORMAL MEETING WITH CITY MANAGER SNIPES AND COUNCILMAN .

I HOPE YOU'RE DOING WELL SIR.

UH, MR. ATKINSON ALONG WITH OTHER CITY STAFF MEMBERS WERE PRESENT DURING ONE OF OR BOTH OF OUR MEETINGS.

WE MET WITH MR SNIPES ONCE, TWICE WITH UH, COUNSEL AND BONNIE.

AND IN MY MOST RESPECTFUL OPINION, BOTH MEETINGS WERE RESPONDED 200 PROFESSIONALLY AND WITHOUT THE REASONABLE ADVOCACY EXPECTED.

I WOULD ADD THAT WE ALSO REQUESTED INFORMATION BY WAY OF THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT NOW.

SO HOW DID WE CONCLUDE AT LEAST FROM THE ASSOCIATION PERSPECTIVE AND THE MEMBERS AND THE SECOND SECTION FOR HOW DID WE CONCLUDE AT MEADOWCREEK? SECTION FOUR EXCEPT FOR RESIDENTIAL LOTS IS NOT PRIVATE.

WELL I INTRODUCED A ROSE AT THE CONCERN REGARDING THE CITY'S USE OF SECTION FOUR CREEK CIRCLE AS A MAIN ROADWAY PATH FOR RECENT NEWS STREET CONSTRUCTION AT ASHMONT.

TRY AND SECTION ONE NEXT TO SECTION FOUR AND TO THIS DATE, USE OF THE STREETS AND DAMAGES DIRECTLY CAUSED IN PART BY WASTE MANAGEMENT VEHICLES IN SCHOOL BUSES.

THIS LED THE ASSOCIATION THROUGH OUR VICE PRESIDENT WHO HAPPENS TO BE AN EXPERT AT SEARCHING LEGAL DOCUMENTS TO RESEARCH THE ORIGIN OF SECTION FOUR IS DEVELOPMENT.

THE PROCESS RESULTED IN DISCOVERY OF A LEGAL DOCUMENT, DEDICATING SECTIONS ONE AND FOUR COMBINED TO THE CITY.

I BELIEVE THE CITY SECRETARY PROVIDED COUNSEL A COPY OF THE DEDICATION DOCUMENT BY WAY OF YOUR EMAIL.

I WISH TO PUT BEFORE THE COUNCIL TWO BASIC QUESTIONS.

IN FACT, PERHAPS QUESTIONS IN LAW? IT DEPENDING ON HOW THE COUNCIL EXPECTS TO RESPOND.

I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED BASED ON UH, MY, UH, TALKS WITH PEOPLE AND, AND CITY COFFERS IF YOU WILL.

AND A BRIEF CONVERSATION WITH THE MAYOR THAT CERTAIN INDIVIDUALS HAVEN'T PASSED THIS INFORMATION THROUGH THE COUNCIL OR THAT IT HASN'T BEEN RAISED.

HELLO? ALRIGHT, ARE YOU THERE? OKAY.

MR , I KNOW YOU'VE MET YOUR THREE MINUTES.

I DON'T KNOW YOU.

YES YOU HAVE.

MAY I, MAY I REQUEST ONE MINUTE TO SUM UP? OKAY.

WELL COUNCIL WOULD HAVE TO VOTE TO DO THAT.

SO WOULD Y'ALL ALLOW MR PANO FOR ANOTHER MINUTE? IS THAT YOUR MOTION MR UH, COUNCIL MEMBER STERLING? YES IT IS.

IS THERE A SECOND? SECOND.

THERE'S A MOTION AND A SECOND I'LL DO A ROLL CALL VOTE.

MAYOR PRO TEM PRESTON COUNCIL MEMBER EDWARDS MAY.

THE SECOND COUNCIL MEMBER STERLING MADE THE MOTION.

COUNCIL MEMBER BONEY? YES.

COUNCIL MEMBER RUELAS.

YES.

COUNCIL MEMBER EMORY COUNCIL MEMBER EMORY.

AND THIS IS MAY AFFORD.

YES.

SO MOTION PASSES.

I KNOW YOU HAVE ONE MINUTE.

GO AHEAD.

THE TWO QUESTIONS I LEAVE WITH CITY COUNCIL FOR CONSIDERATION, WHETHER THE TAX PAYING CITIZENS IN SECTION FOUR ENTITLED THE CITY SERVICES TO DATE IS EXTREMELY CONFUSING AND THE CITY STAFF AT ALL LEVELS AND MORE SERIOUSLY, UH, RESIDENTS OF SECTION FOUR TO WHETHER IT'S LEGAL DEDICATION, DOCUMENT HAS MERIT FROM THE COUNCIL.

FROM THE COUNCIL'S PERSPECTIVE.

UH, WE RELIED SOLELY ON OUR ADVOCACY TO COME FROM COUNCILMAN BONEY.

THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN TO BE HONEST WITH YOU.

UH, WE WILL LEFT WITH ONE THING.

THIS IS THE BONY ACTUALLY TOLD A DOZEN TAX PAYING CITIZENS OF MISSOURI CITY AND RESIDENTS OF METAL CREEK.

UH, BUT FOR THAT THEY WOULD HAVE TO PAY FOR SERVICES FROM THE CITY.

THESE ARE TAX PAYING INDIVIDUALS.

SO THOSE TWO QUESTIONS I LEAVE WITH THE CITY COUNCIL AND I HOPE THAT WE COULD GET A RESPONSE BACK.

WE HAVE ALSO THE WAY GOING WHEN WE REQUESTED INFORMATION FROM THE CITY THROUGH THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION THAT SURE.

OKAY.

[00:15:01]

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

WE'LL NOW MOVE ON TO MARY.

I'D LIKE TO RESPECTFULLY SAY JUST A FEW THINGS IF I COULD, WELL THAT ITEM ISN'T ON THE AGENDA.

I'M, I'M ASKING YOU AS THE INDIVIDUAL WHO'S GOVERNING THIS MEETING, IF IT'S OKAY TO RESPOND IF I MAY, BECAUSE IT'S NOT PROPERLY POSTED ON THE AGENDA.

YOU CANNOT, UH, UNDER STATE LAW RESPOND TO IT.

HOWEVER, IF THERE IS A DESIRE TO PUT THIS ITEM ON A FUTURE AGENDA THAT CAN, UH, THAT UH, REQUEST CAN BE MADE AT THIS TIME, YES, I WOULD DEFINITELY LIKE TO DO THAT.

OKAY.

YOU GUYS MAKE SURE THIS GETS ON THE NEXT MEETING AGENDA.

ALRIGHTY.

[5. STAFF REPORTS]

THANK YOU.

WE'LL MOVE ON TO STAFF REPORTS.

MIDYEAR BUDGET REVIEW.

UM, IS THIS ELENA, YOU'RE GIVING THE STAFF REPORT? ELENA.

DOUG, DID WE GET HER BACK ON THE LINE? YES, I HEARD THAT.

OKAY.

CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW? YES, WE CAN.

GO AHEAD.

I'M HERE.

GOOD EVENING MAYOR AND CITY COUNCIL.

YES, THIS IS THE MID YEAR, UH, BUDGET REVIEW.

UH, LAST FISCAL YEAR WE PROVIDED FINANCIAL REPORTS ON A QUARTERLY BASIS AND WE ALSO INCLUDED BUDGET AMENDMENTS.

WE ARE NOW MOVING TOWARDS DOING A MIDYEAR BUDGET REVIEW, WHICH WILL NOT ONLY INCLUDE, UH, THE INFORMATION FOR EXPENDITURES AND REVENUE TO DATE, BUT A PROJECTION AS FAR AS YOUR IN TO ENSURE THAT WE'RE WITHIN BUDGET.

AND AT THIS POINT IN TIME, THIS IS WHEN WE'LL UM, UH, INTRODUCE OR, UH, REQUEST BUDGET AMENDMENTS FOR CITY COUNCIL APPROVAL.

UM, THIS PRESENTATION WILL BE AT A HIGH LEVEL.

I WILL BE COMBINING FUND TYPES SUCH AS THE SPECIAL REVENUE FUNDS, CAPITAL PROJECT FUNDS AND ENTERPRISE FUNDS.

YOU DO HAVE THE DETAIL FOR EACH FUND IN YOUR AGENDA PACKET FOR REFERENCE.

IF THERE ARE ANY NOTABLE ITEMS THEY WILL BE HIGHLIGHTED DURING THIS PRESENTATION.

FOR THE GENERAL FUND, UH, WE ARE PROJECTING TO INCREASE FUND BALANCE AT THE END OF FISCAL YEAR 2020.

WE HAD OUR PRESENTATION BY JOHN HOCKEY KNEELS, UH, WHERE WE DISCUSSED SALES TAX INFORMATION AND YES, UH, MARCHES, SALES, TAX FIGURES WERE SURPRISING.

UM, BUT IF YOU LOOK AT THE WAY THAT WE BUDGET, WE ARE CONSERVATIVE AND OURSELVES TAX BUDGET AND ALTHOUGH WE RECEIVED 10.2 LAST YEAR, WE BUDGETED 9.6 THIS YEAR.

SO, ALTHOUGH THE PROJECTIONS SHOW THAT THERE WILL BE A DECREASE IN THE REST OF THIS FISCAL YEAR BECAUSE OF THE MANNER IN WHICH WE HAVE BUDGETED, UH, WE ONLY EXPECT THERE TO APPROXIMATELY $200,000 REDUCTION IN OUR SALES TAX REVENUES.

ELENA? ELENA, THIS IS MERE FOR REAL QUICK.

UM, IT'S, IT'S EVERYONE ELSE ABLE TO SEE YOUR, SEE THE PRESENTATION? YES, YES.

OH WOW.

OKAY.

DOUG.

OKAY, GO AHEAD.

I JUST WANTED TO MAKE, I CAN'T, SO IF EVERYONE ELSE CAN, THAT'S FINE.

KEEP GOING ALAINA.

OKAY.

SO AS FAR AS REVENUE IN THE GENERAL FUND, WE ARE PROJECTING TO BE TWO, APPROXIMATELY 2% UNDER, UH, THE BUDGETED AMOUNT.

UM, WE ARE, UH, MAKING SOME ASSUMPTIONS REGARDING PROPERTY TAXES THAT WE WON'T RECEIVE THE FULL AMOUNT BASED ON, UM, POSSIBLE CHALLENGES DUE TO COBIT 19.

UH, AND ALSO WE HAVE REDUCTIONS IN SOME OF OUR CHARGES FOR SERVICES SUCH AS PARKS AND RECREATION, UM, AND SOME OF OUR FINES AND FEES.

UM, BUT OVERALL, UH, DUE TO THE CONSERVATIVE BUDGETING, UH, FOR THIS FISCAL YEAR, WE'RE JUST SEEING A 2% REDUCTION.

THAT IS OUR PROJECTION IN REVENUE WHEN IT COMES TO EXPENDITURES.

UH, WE ACTUALLY HAVE SAVINGS THAT EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF THE REVENUE REDUCTION DUE TO SAVINGS, PRIMARILY IN PERSONNEL AND OTHER AREAS WHERE WE WILL SEE REDUCTIONS IN RESPONSE TO COBIT 19 SUCH AS TRAVEL AND TRAINING.

UH, WE'RE ANTICIPATING A SAVINGS, AGAIN, THAT EXCEEDS THE REDUCTION IN REVENUE.

ALTHOUGH WE HAVEN'T IMPLEMENTED FREEZES, WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR OUR REVENUE SOURCES AND EXPENDITURES TO ENSURE THAT THEY ARE IN LINE WITH PROJECTIONS.

AND JUST AS A REMINDER, UH, THIS COUNCIL APPROVED A RESERVE OF ONE POINT $5 MILLION TO ADDRESS EXPENDITURES RELATED TO DISASTERS.

UM, AT THIS TIME WE DO NOT ANTICIPATE USING THESE FUNDS BASED ON THE SAVINGS THAT WE WILL HAVE AN EXPENDITURES.

UH, NEXT SLIDE.

SPECIAL REVENUE FUNDS.

UH, THE MAJOR FUNDS IN THIS CATEGORY ARE THE TOURISM KIDS, OUR HOTEL OCCUPANCY TAX DONE AND PARKLAND DEDICATION FUNDS.

UH, THE REDUCTION IN REVENUE IS PRIMARILY DUE TO THE TERMINATION OF HOUSTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEMS PARTICIPATION IN TERM THREE AND A REDUCTION IN

[00:20:01]

THE REVENUE BUDGET FOR TERSE TO, UM, IF YOU RECALL, LAST MEETING THERE WAS, UH, AN AGENDA ITEM TO TERMINATE THE COLLEGE SYSTEMS PARTICIPATION IN THE TOURS.

THE 2020 BUDGET INCLUDES PAYMENT OF PAST INCREMENTS, UM, FOR TAX YEARS THAT REMAINED UNPAID.

UM, BUT IT ALSO INCLUDED THE EXPENSE, BASICALLY GIVING THE COLLEGE SYSTEM THE MONEY BACK.

AND SO WE'RE ANTICIPATING THAT WE AREN'T GOING TO RECEIVE THAT MONEY AND WE ALSO WON'T BE SPENDING THE MONEY, UH, BUTTERS TO WHEN THE, UH, THE COUNTY, THEY OVERPAID, UH, THEIR INCREMENT IN FISCAL YEAR 2019.

UH, THEY REALIZED THIS AFTER WE DEVELOP THE FISCAL YEAR 2020 BUDGET.

AND, UH, SO THE 2020 ESTIMATE WAS BASED ON MONEY THAT RETURNED.

SO WE ARE NOT ANTICIPATING RECEIVING, UM, THE AMOUNT THAT WAS BUDGETED AND UH, THAT WILL BE CORRECTED WITH THE CLEANUP BUDGET AMENDMENT AT YEAR END.

THE REVENUE FOR HOTEL OCCUPANCY TAX HAS BEEN REDUCED BY 30%.

THAT IS TO ACCOUNT FOR THE LOWER OCCUPANCY RATES DUE TO COVE AT 19.

AND ALSO STATE.

AS FAR AS THE EXPENDITURE PROJECTIONS, UH, THE DECREASE OF 21% IS PRIMARILY DUE TO THE TOURISM TURNS TWO IN PARIS THREE, UH, WE BUDGETED FUNDS AND ANTICIPATION OF REIMBURSING, UH, PERRY HOMES FOR THEIR DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT.

BUT THEN, UH, ONE OF THE TERMS, UH, BUT WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED THE REQUEST FOR REIMBURSEMENT TO BEGIN THE EXPENDITURE REVIEW PROCESS.

SO WE BELIEVE THAT WE WILL, UH, BUDGET FOR THAT REIMBURSEMENT IN FISCAL YEAR 2021 AS WE DON'T BELIEVE WE'LL BE ABLE TO COMPLETE THAT PROCESS AND REIMBURSE THEM THIS FISCAL YEAR.

AGAIN, WE WERE ALSO, UH, BUDGETED TO REIMBURSE THE HOUSTON COMMUNITY COLLEGE SYSTEM, UH, BUT SINCE WE WON'T RECEIVE THOSE SONS, UM, WE WON'T SPEND THAT MONEY SO THAT ACCOUNTS FOR THE 21%.

NEXT SLIDE PLEASE.

THE DEBT SERVICE FUND, UH, WE'RE PROJECTING A REDUCTION IN PROPERTY TAX COLLECTIONS DUE TO CHALLENGES TO COPE AT 19.

UH, THE DEBT SERVICE LINE HAS A HEALTHY FUND BALANCE AND WOULD BE ABLE, WE'LL BE ABLE TO ABSORB THE ADDITIONAL $70,000 IF THE PROJECTION PROVES TO BE ACCURATE.

NEXT SLIDE.

UTILITY FUNDS.

NOW THIS IS ALL OF OUR UTILITY FUNDS COMBINED.

THAT INCLUDES WATER, WASTEWATER, STEEPBANK, FLAT BANK, WASTEWATER TREATMENT PLANT IMPACT FEES, THE CONSTRUCTION FUNDS AND SOME OF THE DEBT FUNDS RELATED TO UTILITIES.

UH, REVENUE.

THERE'S A SLIGHT DECREASE, UH, 0.6%.

AND EXPENDITURES.

THERE'S AN INCREASE OF 213,003 64.

WE HAVE UPDATED OUR INVESTMENT EARNING PROJECTIONS BASED ON THE CURRENT MARKET AND THESE FUNDS HAVE BEEN ADJUSTED BASED ON THEIR PORTFOLIO.

SO IF A FUND HAS CDS WITH HIGHER INTEREST RATES, THEIR PROJECTION FOR INTEREST INCOME MAY REMAIN WHAT WAS INCLUDED IN THE BUDGET OR IT MAY ACTUALLY BE INCREASED, BUT NOT TO THE EXTENT OF OTHERS THAT HAVE, UH, FUNDS IN LIQUID ACCOUNTS SUCH AS WELLS FARGO OR INVESTMENT POOLS WHERE THE INTEREST RATES ARE LESS THAN 50 BASIS POINTS.

NOW.

SO AS FAR AS THE REDUCTION IN REVENUE, IT'S DUE TO, UH, INVESTMENT EARNINGS AND SEE BANK FLAT BANK, WE'RE REQUESTING A BUDGET AMENDMENT, WHICH IS ON THE REGULAR AGENDA.

THE BUDGET AMENDMENT INCREASES THE REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE COSTS 212,000 AS THEY ARE EXPECTING TO EXCEED THE BUDGET IN THIS AREA BASED ON WHAT HAS OCCURRED SO FAR THIS FISCAL YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE.

CAPITAL PROJECTS.

UH, WE ARE ALSO REQUESTING A BUDGET AMENDMENT IN CAPITAL PROJECTS AND THIS IS FOR THE 2019 DEBT ISSUE.

UM, WE ARE INCREASING REVENUE FOR THE, UH, REFINANCING THAT WAS DONE AND WE HAVE TO INCREASE EXPENSES TO PAY OFF THE PREVIOUS DAY.

AND SO THAT'S WHY YOU SEE, UH, UH, AN INCREASE IN FIVE OR 5 MILLION IN REVENUE AND AN INCREASE OF 5 MILLION IN EXPENDITURES, UM, THAT IS DUE TO THE BUDGET AMENDMENT FOR THE REFUNDING, WHICH OCCURRED PREVIOUSLY IN THIS FISCAL YEAR.

NEXT SLIDE.

OTHER ENTERPRISE FUNDS.

OKAY.

THIS INCLUDES THE LGC AND SOLID WASTE FUND.

UH, DUE TO COBIT 19, WE'RE PROJECTING A DECREASE IN REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES FOR LGC.

WE ARE PROJECTING THAT EXPENDITURES WILL EXCEED REVENUE BY APPROXIMATELY $267,000.

UM, BUT THESE LOSSES WE WILL BE BRINGING BACK A FUTURE AGENDA ITEM TO DETERMINE HOW TO MOVE FORWARD.

UH, WITH LGC THE SOLID WASTE FUND IS PROJECTED TO BE WITHIN BUDGET FOR BOTH REVENUE AND EXPENDITURES.

NEXT SLIDE.

[00:25:01]

THE EQUIPMENT REPLACEMENT FUND, WE'RE PROJECTING TO SPIN LESS THAN THE BUDGET IN ORDER TO REMAIN WITHIN THE FUNDS AVAILABLE.

IS THERE ANOTHER SIDE? NEXT SLIDE.

OKAY.

UH, ALSO IN YOUR PACKET WE INCLUDED A MID YEAR FUND BALANCE SUMMARY, WHICH REFLECTS THE BEGINNING FUND BALANCE FOR EACH FUND AS WELL AS THE ESTIMATES FOR REVENUE AND EXPENDITURE AND THE PROJECTED ENDING FUND BALANCE.

THERE ARE THREE FUNDS THAT SHOW NEGATIVE FUND BALANCE.

AND I WANTED TO UH, GO OVER THAT BRIEFLY WITH YOU JUST IN CASE THERE WERE QUESTIONS.

CDBG, WHICH IS THE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT BLOCK GRANT.

IT'S ON A REIMBURSEMENT BASIS AND TYPICALLY AT YEAR END WE ACCRUE REVENUE SINCE IT'S ON A REIMBURSEMENT BASIS.

SO NORMALLY THERE IS A NEGATIVE, UH, FUND BALANCE AT THE END OF THE YEAR WITH A DUE TO DUE FROM LIKE A LOAN OF CASH FROM THE GENERAL FUND UNTIL WE RECEIVE OUR REIMBURSEMENT FROM, UM, THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

UH, THE SURFACE WATER CONSTRUCTION, UH, FUND IS AN ENTERPRISE FUND THAT RECEIVED BOND PROCEEDS.

UH, THESE BOND PROCEEDS ARE RECORDED AS A LIABILITY INSTEAD OF REVENUE, SO IT'LL SHOW THAT IT'S NEGATIVE, BUT IT'S, IT'S, IT'S FINE WHEN IT COMES TO CASH.

UM, AND THEN LGC AGAIN WILL, UH, COME BACK WITH A SEPARATE AGENDA ITEM ON A FUTURE AGENDA FOR LGC.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS IN REGARDS TO THIS REPORT? HI ELENA.

COUNCILWOMAN STERLING.

I HAVE A QUESTION.

UH, LAST WEEK I THINK WHERE WE DISCUSS, UH, ACC, THE REIMBURSEMENT FOR UM, ATC THAT WE WILL IN TERM RECOUP THE COST ROUGHLY AROUND 190 200,000.

DID YOU NOT SAY THE WOMEN ARE GOING TO RECEIVE THOSE PHONES? CORRECT.

SO HCC IS BEING REIMBURSED WITH THE FUNDS THAT THEY CONTRIBUTED INTO THE INCREMENTS INTO THE PROJECT, WHICH WAS 350,000.

WE PREVIOUSLY INVOICED THEM FOR, UM, I THINK IT WAS TAX YEAR 15 AND 16.

THAT WAS A TOTAL OF ABOUT $196,000.

UM, BUT ONCE THE TERMINATION AGREEMENT IS APPROVED, UH, WE WERE, WE ARE GOING TO BACK OUT THAT ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE BECAUSE WE WON'T BE PAYING THEM.

LIKE THEY WON'T PAY US AND WE WON'T PAY THEM.

IF THEY GIVE US THE $196,000, WE WOULD JUST HAVE TO TURN AROUND AND GIVE IT RIGHT BACK TO THEM.

OKAY.

OKAY.

I UNDERSTAND.

THANK YOU.

YES.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS? AGAIN, WE DO HAVE A BUDGET ORDINANCE, UH, ON THE REGULAR AGENDA ARE, I'LL BRIEFLY GO OVER THOSE ITEMS ONCE AGAIN.

OKAY.

ELENA.

THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

ARE YOU DONE? I'M SORRY.

LOCATED WITHIN THE PLAN.

THAT STREET NAME HAS BEEN CHANGED TO THE A CROSSING, UH, THE THIRD CHANGE THAT THE ORDINANCE OR THAT THE AMENDMENT MAKE IT, THAT IT REVISES A CERTAIN APPLICATION, UH, TO CERTAIN ROADWAY IMPROVEMENT WITHIN THE PLAN.

SO IT DOESN'T CHANGE THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF THE FINANCING PLAN WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE REMOVAL OF THE HCC PROJECT.

SO THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS FOR CLIFF EDWARDS? I'M SORRY, HOW LONG WAS THE CONTRACT? HOW LONG WILL BE THE DURATION OF THE CONTRACT? SO IT IS A ONE YEAR CONTRACT WITH THE OPTION TO RENEW FOR THREE YEARS.

SO TOTAL LINK COULD BE FOUR YEARS UNLESS WE DECIDE TO END THE CONTRACT FOR WHATEVER FOR WHATEVER REASON DOWN THE ROAD OR NOT RENEW IT.

I THINK THAT WAS COUNCIL MEMBER EMORY THAT YOU HAVE A QUESTION? YES, I DID.

UH, WELL GO AHEAD AND TELL ME WHAT THE FREQUENCY OF SPRAYING WILL BE AND IS IT THE SAME AS LAST YEAR OR ARE WE TAKING INTO CONSIDERATION, UH, UH, MAYBE A, UM, AN INCREASE IN MOSQUITO POPULATION? SO IT IS, IT IS BASED OFF OF THE ONE SPRAY PER WEEK CURRENTLY.

UM, IF THERE IS A NEED FOR ADDITIONAL, UM, SPRAYS, WE HAVE THAT KIND OF BUILT INTO THE CONTRACT, THE, THE UM, WE, WE ROUGHLY SPRAY ABOUT 36 TO 40 WEEKS DEPENDING ON WHEN WE FEEL LIKE MOSQUITO SEASON IS STARTING.

IT'S USUALLY FROM MAY TO NOVEMBER.

SO WE ARE CURRENTLY SPRAYING RIGHT NOW, BUT UM, THAT COMES OUT TO ABOUT 36 TO 40 WEEKS.

UH, IN THE PAST WE'VE HAD TO GO TO MULTIPLE SPRAYS PER WEEK, BUT WE'VE GOT A LITTLE CUSHION BUILT INTO OUR, OUR FUNDING TO COVER THAT.

SO, UM, AND ALSO THE CONTRACT, THE CONTRACT IS LISTED FOR UP TO 70 SPRAYS, SO WE DON'T ANTICIPATE GOING OVER THE 30 DAYS 40, BUT THERE, THERE IS A CUSHION BUILT IN FOR UP TO SEVEN DAYS.

THANK YOU.

SO YES, THEY WILL DO PRIVATE STREETS AND UM, AND GATED COMMUNITIES THEY HAVE ACCESS.

THANK YOU CLIFF.

THIS IS COUNCIL MEMBER ANTHONY.
