8. Consent Agenda
All matters listed under the consent agenda are considered routine and may be acted upon by the Board of Supervisors with one action and without an extensive hearing. Any member of the Board or any citizen may request that an item be taken from the consent agenda, discussed and acted upon separately during this meeting. The Mayor, or the Mayor Pro-Tem, retains discretion in deciding whether or not an item will be pulled off the consent agenda.
For Possible Action: To approve the correction and increase of the taxes for the 2008/09, 2009/10, 2010/11 and 2011/12 tax years for parcel number 007-431-11 (1024 Baily Ct.) per NRS 361.157 and NRS 361.155 (5) in the amount of $12,027.35. (Kimberly Adams)
Staff Summary: The property located at 1024 Baily Ct. APN 007-431-11 was granted an exemption in 1998 because the property was owned by the First United Methodist Church and being used for the Pastor of the church as a parsonage. In August of 2007, the property was no longer being used for the Pastor and the church decided to rent the home out and collect rent. It was not until November of 2011 that our office was notified that the property was being rented out. Per NRS 361.157 (1) "when any real estate or portion of real estate which for any reason is exempt from taxation is leased, loaned or otherwise made available to and used by a natural person...for profit or as a residence, or both...is subject to taxation." NRS 361.155 (5) further states that "if an exemption is granted or renewed in error because of an incorrect claim or failure of an organization to give the notice required by subsection 4, the assessor shall assess the taxable portion of the property retroactively pursuant to NRS 361.769 and a penalty of 10 percent of the tax due for the current year and any prior years may be added." In light of the fact that the owner of the property did notify us, provided a ledger of rents received since 2007 and it does not appear that they purposely avoided paying taxes, it is the opinion of the Assessor's office and the District Attorney's office that the 10% penalty be waived. Additionally, based on the rent amounts provided, the property did not qualify for the lower 3% tax cap in any of the requested years. The Assessor's office is asking for the correction and increase of the 2008/09 through 2011/12. This correction will result in a increase in the amount of $2,755.30 for the 2008/09, an increase of $2,970.22 for the 2009/10 fiscal year, an increase of $3,169.22 for the 2010/11 fiscal year and an increase in the amount of $3,132.61 for the 2011/12 fiscal year.
A) For Possible Action: To accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury through February 7, 2012 per NRS 251.030. (Nick Providenti)
Staff Summary: NRS 251.030 requires the Finance Director (for the purpose of the statute acting as the County Auditor) to report to the Board of County Commissioners (or in our case the Board of Supervisors), at each regular meeting thereof, the condition of each fund in the treasury.
B) For Possible Action: To accept the Carson City Cost Allocation Plan for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. (Nick Providenti) Late Materials
Staff Summary: City staff is requesting that the Board accept the Cost Allocation Plan prepared by Mahoney and Associates using financial information for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 for use in preparing the FY 2013 Carson City Budget. As per last year, the city will use the OMB Circular A-87 Cost plan and will remove any costs associated with the City Manager's Office from the allocation for amounts charged to the Quality of Life Special Revenue Fund. The City will use the Full Cost Allocation plan for amounts charged to all other Enterprise and Special Revenue Funds.

A) Presentation of the Carson City Quarterly Business Review for the period ending December 31, 2011. (Linda Ritter)
Staff Summary: This item represents the quarterly business review related to the City-wide performance scorecard. A scorecard is a tool that focuses our attention on those things most important, aligns our activities throughout the organization, measures our progress and monitors projects that improve our performance. In the report the objective represents what we want to achieve as a City. The performance measures give us a progress report on meeting those objectives by comparing actual data with established targets. These targets represent our expected and/or desired performance. If targets are not being met, staff focuses on those areas and determines what, if anything, can be done to reverse the situation.

(Larry Werner)
Staff Summary: The recent legislature created an interim committee to discuss the Ctax distribution at the urging of several cities. The main issue has been the Tier 2 distribution in a couple of counties. Carson City has no issue with the current Tier 1 or Tier 2 distribution. NACO made a presentation to the interim committee on February 1, 2012 stating that all the counties were in agreement with the Tier 1 distribution. Chairwoman Kirkpatrick asked that all counties weigh in on the issue stating whether they had any issues and were they supportive of the NACO presentation.
