Councilmember Babbott moved to take the recommended action.  The motion was seconded by Councilmember Kelty.

 

Of note, in taking the action, Councilmembers expressed concern regarding the rising costs of petroleum products and asked what steps the City could take to address these costs.

 

Mr. Negroni stated that the City is considering alternatives to petroleum, including soy.  However the cost of soy is considerably higher than petroleum right now.  They are also looking at a more diverse offering of products.  Rather than having one motor oil for the entire fleet, they are considering different products for light duty vehicles that could be less expensive than the products required for the City’s diesel equipment.  Staff was asked to continue to look for cost saving alternatives in the area of petroleum products.

 

The motion passed on unanimous vote.

Councilmember Silva moved to approve the recommended action, seconded by Councilmember Cooper.

 

There was a discussion regarding the availability of hybrid full-sized vehicles that would be suitable for use by the Police Department.  Mr. Negroni stated that full-sized hybrid vehicles are so new they are not readily available, and because the demand for these vehicles is so high, bids are not competitive.  Staff was asked to keep a close watch on what is happening in the industry, and to evaluate other cities experiences with full-sized hybrid vehicles.

10.     ORDINANCES AND RESOLUTIONS

 

A.

Consideration of Ordinance No. 2005-16:  An ordinance amending Title 8, Chapter 8‑03, Streets and Public Ways, Division 8-03-002 North Downtown Business District Encroachment Policy by amending Section 8-03-002-0005, permitted encroachments.

 

 

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Read Ordinance No. 2005-16 for the first time by title only.

 

Gerry Craig, Traffic Engineer, gave a brief presentation to the Council.

 

Councilmember Haughey moved to read Ordinance No. 2005-16 for the first time by title only, seconded by Councilmember Silva.

 

The following arguments were offered in opposition to the ordinance:

 

 

·     

The original intent of the Smokefree Air Ordinance was to clearly distinguish between indoor and outdoor spaces.

 

·     

The amendments are not in synch with the spirit or the intent of the ordinance.

 

·     

The amendments open the door to many gray areas, such as smoking while standing outside a business.

 

·     

Addressing public indoor air quality, considering the carcinogenic behavior of indoor smoke and long-term exposure, was the original intent of the ordinance.

 

·     

The amendments basically say that outside isn’t outside if it’s on the sidewalk, but outside is outside if it’s not on the sidewalk.

 

The following arguments were made in support of the ordinance:

 

 

·     

An outdoor café is a continuance of the business premises, and ‘no smoking in the workplace’ should apply regardless of whether you are indoors or outdoors.

 

·     

Without the amendments, restaurant employees would have to breath smoke while serving outdoor customers.

 

·     

The amendments are in synch with the spirit and intent of the ordinance in that they protect people from smoke in the workplace.

 

·     

The amendments will allow for the equitable treatment of all businesses, in that only those adjacent to a public sidewalk would be able to use that sidewalk in order to establish a smoking area within their restaurant.

 

·     

There is a difference between walking past a doorway where people are smoking, and having to sit next to patrons smoking while eating in an outdoor café.

 

The motion to read Ordinance No. 2005-16 for the first time by title only passed on majority roll call vote as follows:

 

 

Mayor Donaldson

Aye

 

Vice-Mayor White

Nay

 

Councilmember Babbott

Nay

 

Councilmember Cooper

Aye

 

Councilmember Haughey

Aye

 

Councilmember Kelty

Nay

 

Councilmember Silva

Aye

 

J. Carnes, Manager of Maloney’s Tavern, 101 N. Leroux Street, stated he was in favor of the original Smokefree Air Ordinance, however sees the prohibition to smoking on sidewalk patios or outdoor cafes as a disadvantage to the City.  Disallowing smoking on sidewalk patios may result in small crowds of smokers being uncontained and uncontrolled, leading to sidewalks that are less friendly to pedestrians. 

 

B. Drew Gruver, downtown bar owner, 1731 N. Kutch, stated he was in favor of the original ordinance, however, he is unhappy about being told by an Assistant City Attorney (indicating Lisa Stankovich) that he will be responsible to police the sidewalks for smokers who may be waiting in line to enter his bar if the amendment is approved. 

 

Lisa Stankovich, Assistant City Attorney, stated her understanding is that if a service line is outdoors, you can smoke, however if the service line is in an enclosed area, you cannot smoke.  (Ms. Stankovich returned later in the meeting to restate her position.)

 

Title was read as follows:

 

 

Ordinance No. 2005-16

 

 

 

An ordinance amending Title 8, Chapter 8‑03, Streets and Public Ways, Division 8-03-002 North Downtown Business District Encroachment Policy by amending Section 8-03-002-0005, permitted encroachments

 

 

B.

Consideration of Resolution No. 2005-57:  A resolution of the Mayor and Council of the City Flagstaff, Arizona, requesting a second voting member on the Coconino Plateau Water Advisory Council.

 

 

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Read Resolution No. 2005-57 by title only.

Adopt Resolution No. 2005-57.

 

Councilmember Haughey moved to read Resolution No. 2005-57 by title only, seconded by Councilmember Silva.

 

Ron Doba, Utilities Director, gave a brief description of what would be accomplished with the resolution.  Mr. Doba stated that the item was presented to Council at their May 2, 2005 meeting and was defeated.

 

The following points were made in support of the resolution:

 

 

·   

Coconino County has two voting members and the City of Flagstaff currently has only one voting member.

 

·   

Advocacy of the community would be better served with two voting members.

 

·   

Every government represented should have an equal number of votes.

 

·   

Having a representative from the City’s Water Commission would provide continuity between the City and the various water boards, and would represent the City as their primary advocacy.

 

The following points were made in opposition to the resolution:

 

 

·   

Cooperative consensus building among water users should be the Council’s main objective.

 

·   

The City has equal representation on the Northern Arizona Municipal Water Users Association’s board; Flagstaff doesn’t request more votes than smaller cities just because it’s bigger.

 

·   

Requesting two voting members would suggest to our tribal neighbors that Flagstaff should have more power and control over water issue decisions than they do.

 

·   

It has taken several years to create a sense of equity among our water partners and this resolution could threaten the balance that has been achieved.

 

·   

The emphasis of the Coconino County resolution forming the Coconino Plateau Water Advisory Council is not on political votes as much as expertise and a willingness to work together to find solutions for the good of all.

 

City Attorney Patricia Boomsma was asked if Councilmembers can bring back items for a vote that have previously been decided, and what is to prevent the Council from re-debating every decision made.

 

Ms. Boomsma stated there is no policy to prevent Councilmembers from re-debating items that have previously been decided, unless Council adopts a rule to that effect.  However, for the award of a bid contract, or the rejection of a bid, it is a one-time consideration.

 

Council discussed the possibility of providing time at public meetings to allow for updates from the Council representatives of boards and commissions.

 

The motion to read was defeated by majority roll call vote as follows:

 

 

Mayor Donaldson

Nay

 

Vice-Mayor White

Nay

 

Councilmember Babbott

Nay

 

Councilmember Cooper

Nay

 

Councilmember Haughey

Aye

 

Councilmember Kelty

Nay

 

Councilmember Silva

Aye

 

Assistant City Attorney Lisa Stankovich returned to recant her earlier comments pertaining to Item 10A.  Ms. Stankovich stated that the definition of service line in the Smokefree Air Ordinance includes outdoor service lines as well as indoor service lines.

 

Council requested that Ms. Stankovich contact the downtown bar owners who were in attendance earlier in the evening and clarify this issue with them.

 

Council directed staff to come back with an amendment to the Smokefree Air Ordinance removing outdoor service lines from the definition of service lines, which will be considered at the second reading of Ordinance No. 2005-16.

 

C.

Consideration of Resolution No. 2005-75:  A resolution for the adoption of the Budget for Fiscal Year 2005-2006; and declaring an emergency.

Councilmember Silva moved to read Resolution No. 2005-75 seconded by Councilmember Kelty.  The vote was unanimous in favor and title was read as follows:

 

 

Resolution No. 2005-75

Elizabeth Neumayer, Parks and Recreation Director, summarized the details of the proposed action.
