Item 8 -           Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Grant

 

Earlier this year, the Police Department applied for funding under the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Grant program.  The department has been awarded $61,917.00 for the 2007/2008 funding cycle to assist victims of crime.  Because the grant program requires a match, the City’s share is $15,479.00 (20%)

 

Staff recommends that Council approve the acceptance of the grant from the State of Florida in the amount of $61,917.00 for the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) Grant program.

 

Item 9 -           2008 Critical Dates Calendars

 

Planning Commission recommended adoption, 7-0 of the proposed 2008 Critical Dates Calendars. The calendars are structured identically to the calendars that were adopted for 2007. The only significant changes to the calendars are reflected on the Public Hearing Critical Dates Calendars for the months of November and December. During these months, the regular Planning Commission meeting dates have been moved from the 4th Thursday of the month to the 3rd Thursday of the month in order to accommodate holiday dates during those months.

 

                        Staff recommends that Council adopt the 2008 Critical Dates Calendars, as recommended by the Planning Commission.

 

City Manager Comments:  The dates on the calendar for City Council Meetings may be modified in December after the City Council organizational meeting.  The City Council will adopt the 2008 meeting dates at that time.

 

Item 10 -        Award of Five (5) Surveying Contracts

 

Previously, Council approved the final ranking for five Surveying Firms and authorized staff to enter into contract negotiations with those five firms.  These are the negotiated contracts for those five surveying firms for a three year period of time and allowed to extend up to two (2) additional years, one year periods at a time if mutually agreeable.

 

Staff recommends that Council approve and award the surveying contracts attached to: Sliger and Associates, Inc.; Tomoka Engineering/Wade-Trim, Inc.; Dyer, Riddle, Mills & Precourt (DRMP); Southeastern Surveying, Inc. and CPH, Inc.

 

Item 11 -        Award of Construction Inspection and Environmental Services

 

Previously Council approved the final ranking and negotiated a successful contract for Construction Inspection & Environmental Services to Quentin L. Hampton Associates who along with Terra Verde, Biological Consulting Services and Good Environmental were ranked number one.  Attached is the contract.  Please note that the contract is for three (3) years with an extension.  The number of hours has been reduced by 50% from the initial negotiation.  This is due to the current building slow down.  Also note, that the contract has an increase every year with a cap of 4%, to cover anticipated inflation.

 

Some of the funding for these services is budgeted in the 001 1900 515 3113 account.  Other funding will be on a per project basis.

 

Staff recommends that Council approve and award the Construction Inspection and Environmental Services to Quentin L. Hampton, Biological Consulting Services, Terra Verde and Good Environmental as submitted.

 

Item 12 -        Acceptance of Settlement in the Case of Stephen P. Owsiak vs. City of Port Orange

 

On March 27, 2005, Mr. Owsiak, who was a pedestrian, was struck by a motor vehicle while attempting to cross Dunlawton Avenue near the intersection with Nova Road.  Mr. Owsiak was severely injured.  At the time of the accident the streetlights were not functioning due to the Nova Road street improvements.  Mr. Owsiak claimed that lack of lighting contributed to the accident.  It is the City’s position that Mr. Owsiak was under the influence of drugs and alcohol at the time of the accident and was the sole cause of his injuries. 

 

A copy of the settlement agreement is attached.  The agreement provides payment of $15,000.00 to Mr. Owsiak.  Although it is the City’s position that there is no liability the defense cost of trying the case before a jury would exceed the settlement cost regardless of whether the City prevails. Further, there is always a risk of trying a case before a jury regardless of the strength of your legal position.

 

Staff recommends Council to authorize the settlement of the Stephen P. Owsiak vs. City of Port Orange, Case No. 2006-31250 CICI pursuant to the terms set forth in the settlement agreement.

H.                             COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

 

Item 18 -        Resolution No. 07-72- Establishing Revised Fee for Garage and Yard Sale Permits

 

In reviewing the fee charged for garage and yard sale permits, it has been found that the current fee of two dollars has not changed since 1979.  This fee does not adequately cover the cost of printing, issuing, and tracking permits.  The proposed fee of five dollars is in line with other municipalities in our area.  Daytona Beach, South Daytona, and Ormond all charge a five-dollar fee for garage and yard sale permits.

 

Staff recommends approval.

 

City Manager Comments:  This was one of the suggestions presented in the long memorandum on ways to address the budget.  The research on the amount being charged by others cities was provided by one of our employees.

A relocated easement will be provided with the completion and final acceptance of the Port Orange Properties Development.

 

The easement vacation application and legal description have been reviewed for completeness and accuracy.

Port Orange Properties, L.C., the Developer of the proposed Port Orange Properties development has provided a Public Improvement Agreement for the relocation of a portion of a public sanitary sewer main and other proposed public improvements shown on the development plans currently under review by City Departments. The agreement requires that this work is completed within one year from the development permit issuance and that a one-year maintenance bond for that work will be provided with the completion and final acceptance of the Port Orange Properties Development.

 

The Community Development Department has received a request to vacate existing easements in connection with the proposed public sanitary sewer main relocation.

Staff recommends Council to approve the Subdivision Replat for the Eastport Business Park – Lots 8, 9, & 10 as recommended by the Planning Commission.  The Planning Commission’s recommendation for approval is subject to the following conditions:

Item 23 -        Concurrency and Fair-Share Agreement for Final Site Plan – Floridian Bank

 

A 2,865 sq. ft. two-story building is proposed on the Floridian Bank site, which is located at 4720 Clyde Morris Blvd., south of Willow Run Blvd. in the PO (Professional Office) zone.  Currently this project is going through the City’s minor site plan process and is being reviewed at the staff level.  Due to roadway and intersection level-of-service problems within the City, concurrency improvements are being planned or under construction at locations where these problems exist.  All new developments in the City are required to pay for their impact to those locations through a Concurrency and Fair-Share Agreement.  Based on the November 21, 2006 Traffic Impact Analysis prepared by Kimley-Horn & Associates, the fair share amount for Floridian Bank is $114,415, which will go toward the improvements of the Dunlawton Ave/Clyde Morris Blvd intersection, the I-95 interchange area, the Summertrees Road extension, and the Town West Blvd./Williamson Blvd. intersection.  The agreement must be approved by the City Council, in addition to having the fair-share amount paid before a Development Order can be issued for this project.   Included is a copy of the Fair-Share Agreement and the Floridian Bank site plan for the Council’s information.

 

Staff recommends Council to approve the Concurrency and Fair-Share Agreement for the Floridian Bank Final Site Plan.

J.                              PUBLIC UTILITIES

 

Item 35 -        Resolution No. 07-75 - Establishing Public Utilities Engineering and Permitting Fees as Authorized per the Land Development Code

 

The City of Port Orange provides utility service to portions of Daytona Beach Shores, Ponce Inlet, and areas of unincorporated Volusia County. Historically, the Public Utilities Department has collected engineering inspection fees for construction of water and sewer utilities infrastructure installed within these jurisdictions (outside of the Port Orange city limits).  To date, the fees collected have been in accordance with the Port Orange Land Development Code.  However, no fees have been collected to cover the Public Utilities costs associated with review of utility engineering design or permitting for site and subdivision developments located outside of the Port Orange city limits.

 

As an outcome of the FY08 budget workshops, Public Utilities was directed by the City Manager to prepare a fee resolution that comprehensively addressed all aspects of Public Utilities involvement with site and subdivision development in Ponce Inlet, Daytona Beach Shores, and the unincorporated Volusia County.  Many of the fees presented were derived from data presented in a report prepared in early 2005 as part of a study of Community Development fees.  Where no data was readily available, Public Utilities staff involved with the process have estimated their involvement and quantified the fees based upon current pay scales and benefits.

 

In the past year, there is a dramatically increased focus of concurrency concerns in the arena of water treatment plant capacity, consumptive use permitting, and sewer treatment plant capacity, as well as with the water distribution and sanitary sewer collection system capabilities. Consequently, demands upon the Public Utilities engineering staff has grown significantly. 

 

We are requesting approval of the attached fee resolution, with an effective date of October 1, 2007.  For the record, it is our intent to more closely track our involvement with the development processes of Daytona Beach Shores, Ponce Inlet, and Volusia County.  Thereafter, it may be necessary to adjust the fees accordingly in order to more accurately reflect our actual involvement with each of the activities.

 

Staff recommends Council to approve the resolution, establishing Public Utilities engineering and permitting fees as authorized per the Land Development Code.

 

Item 36 -        Resolution No. 07-76 - Sale of Wetland Mitigation Bank Credits to Centerline Homes for the Coquina Cove Project

 

Centerline Homes has requested to purchase a total of 42.8 State wetland mitigation bank credits for the Coquina Cove project.   These credits are required to mitigate construction of the Coquina Cove sub-division.  Centerline Homes has agreed to the terms for purchase of mitigation credits per existing City policies for a total cost of $1,624,500.00 per City policies, a 10% deposit has been received and a letter of intent has been sent to Centerline Homes to assist them in completing their SJRWMD permitting.

 

The City mitigation bank has sufficient credits available for sale of this project.  However it should be noted that we have now depleted the credits that Council authorized for sale to private development.   Remaining credits are to be held in reserve for City projects.

 

Staff recommends approval of the sale of 42.8 State mitigation bank credits to Centerline Homes.  Once the sale is approved, the contract executed and the payment received in full, the City will take formal action to officially record the sale in its ledger and notify the SJRWMD of this project allocation.

 

Staff recommends Council to approve the resolution, authorizing the sale of 42.8 State wetland mitigation bank credits in the total amount of $1,624,500.00, and authorize the Mayor and City Manager to sign documents on behalf of the City.
