For Possible Action: To adopt on second reading, Bill No. 107, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code, Title 2, Administration and Personnel, Chapter 2.14, Carson City Audit Committee, amending Section 2.14.040, Responsibilities of the Carson City Audit Committee, by adding additional review and recommendation responsibilities regarding the adequacy of city department and office performance measures for the purposes of internal audits, setting forth auditing standards, and requiring the committee to oversee the internal auditor's creation and implementation of fraud, waste and abuse identification processes and reporting, and other matters properly related thereto. (Nick Providenti)
Staff Summary: The original ordinance, as amended, listed a number of responsibilities of the Carson City audit committee but did not require the internal auditor to perform his duties in conformance with professional standards, such as are required for external financial auditors, the legal profession, engineers, building inspectors and other professions. Such standards are required of internal audit organizations worldwide. These standards help ensure any persons performing internal audit work for Carson City meets basic levels of independence, qualifications, experience, ability and that conclusions and recommendations are adequately reported. Further, the existing ordinance does not include provisions that the internal auditor review the adequacy of the city departments' or offices' performance measures. Finally, the City does not have established processes to identify potential fraud, waste and abuse (FWB) of city resources and property nor to respond to such situations if identified. The amended ordinance directs the internal auditor to create and implement processes to identify potential FWB of city resources and property and establish a findings protocol regarding any such issues identified by the internal auditor.
For Possible Action: To introduce, on first reading, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code Title 4, Licenses and Business Regulations, Chapter 4.16 - Solicitors and Canvassers, amending Section 4.16.010 - Permit Required, to eliminate canvassers and other non-commercial first amendment solicitors from the title and permit requirement and to add peddlers, amending Section 4.16.020 - Definition, to clarify and expand definitions and delete the sheriff's application process from the section, amending Section 4.16.040 - Investigation and Issuance, to change the section name and create a new permit registration process and denial due process and permit fee schedule, amending Section 4.16.050 - Badges, by deleting the badge deposit and refund process and prohibiting use of an expired badge, amending Section 4.16.060 - Revocation of Permit, to add clarification to the permit revocation due process, amending Section 4.16.070 - Appeal, to change the section's name and delete the appeal process and replace it with a misdemeanor prohibition for any and all types of solicitors that violate a posted no soliciting sign, amending Section 4.16.080 - Expiration of Permits, to make expiration language changes, amending Section 4.16.100 - Hours of Soliciting, to delete the section, amending Section 4.16.110 - Certain Salesmen Exempted, to change the section's name and to clarify and expand the list of persons exempt from the permit requirement, and other matters properly related thereto. (Sheriff Kenny Furlong & Randal Munn)
Staff Summary: The existing solicitors' ordinance was adopted prior to current applicable case law and has not been previously updated. Compliance with current law has been accomplished by non-strict enforcement of the current ordinance under advice of the District Attorney's office. The applicable case law allows reasonable time, place and manner restrictions on "commercial speech" though it too is considered 1st Amendment speech. Door to door soliciting is either commercial speech or pure 1st Amendment speech (for example: political or religious speech ). Generally, the restrictions that the law might allow to be placed upon commercial speech are not allowed with regard to pure 1st Amendment speech. This amendment to the Carson City Municipal Code is necessary to bring the City's ordinance in compliance with current law on this subject.
21. District Attorney
For Possible Action: To adopt Bill No. 108, on second reading, an ordinance amending the Carson City Municipal Code Title 2 - Administration and Personnel, creating a new Chapter 2.44 - Financial Administration, and creating a new section 2.44.010 - Majority Voting Required on Use of Public Funding for Carson City Center Project, to Require an Affirmative Vote of the Majority of the People Before Public Funding Can Be Used for the Carson City Center Project, and other matters properly related thereto. (Randal Munn)
Staff Summary: Pursuant to NRS 295.095 Petitioners filed their Affidavit For Petitioners' Committee and sample Initiative Petition ordinance at the Clerk-Recorder's office on February 1, 2012. The Initiative Petition ordinance, as signed by various Carson City voters, was submitted on June 27, 2012, for "Certification of Sufficiency" pursuant to NRS 295.105. On July 6, 2012, the Certification of Sufficiency that the petition contained sufficient signatures to qualify for consideration was issued by the Clerk-Recorder. The 30-day time limit ("within 30 days after the date the petition was finally determined sufficient" NRS 295.115(1)) for the Carson City Board of Supervisors to adopt the certified initiative ordinance expires on Sunday August 5, 2012. The initiative ordinance adopted by the Board, if any, must be "without any change in substance" from that of the circulated petition's. If the Board adopts the initiative ordinance on first reading at its July 19, 2012 meeting, a second reading adoption at its August 2, 2012 meeting would satisfy both the Carson City Charter and NRS 295.115(1). If the Board rejects adoption, then the Board must submit the Initiative Petition ordinance to the voters as a ballot question at the November 6, 2012 general election or otherwise sue to keep it off the ballot. Arguments for and against would be developed by appointed committees pursuant to NRS 295.121.
