4.

Consideration of Scope Changes and Allocation of Funds for Additional Improvements:  Aquatic Multigenerational Center.

 

 

RECOMMENDED ACTION:

Approve the recommendations outlined in the staff summary report.

 

Mary Jo Jenkins, Management Services Director, proposed a number of funding alternatives in order to include an additional $578,000.00 in improvements, as directed by Council at their July 10, 2006 Work Session.

 

Proposed revisions include returning to the scope of work 36 parking spaces in the northeast parking lot, miscellaneous sidewalks, and certain curbs in the parking lot where the architects determine curbs will enhance the project and provide for stormwater runoff.  The babysitting room, the multipurpose room, and the adjacent lounge area can be reincorporated into the scope of work.

 

Councilmember Kelty arrived at the meeting at 4:07 p.m.

 

The City budgeted net revenue for a full year’s operation of the center beginning July 2007.  Since the facility is not anticipated to be operational until December 2007, $350,000.00 of the budgeted net revenue can be reallocated to the construction of the center.

 

A reallocation of $64,000.00 from the general fund portion of the Northern Arizona Technology and Business Incubator budget could be used to fund the proposed changes in scope.  Finally, a portion of the economic incentive fund could be reallocated to the aquatic center, which will generate $174,000.00 for the proposed add-ons.  The $174,000.00 cannot be taken out of the landfill closure fund because it is an enterprise fund and it would not be appropriate to use these funds as a revenue source for a general fund project.

 

Addressing the $2.1 million disparity between the first construction cost estimate and the concept design cost estimate, Kathleen Viskocil, Senior Project Manager, explained that the concept design cost estimate consisted of a per-square-foot building estimate and a comparable facility site work estimate, based on the architect’s experience in various Colorado mountain towns.

 

Councilmember Kelty asked that a discussion on how to address unreliable and unpredictable construction costs be scheduled for the next Council retreat.

 

Councilmember Haughey moved to approve the recommended action, seconded by Councilmember Cooper.  The motion passed on unanimous vote.

 

5.

Adjournment of Special Council Meeting.

 

There being no further business to come before the Council, the Special Meeting was adjourned at 4:28 P.M.
