9. 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.
A) For Possible Action: To approve the correction/increase of the taxes for the 2011/12 and 2012/13 tax years for parcel number 007-181-06 (130 Cogorno Wy) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $237.94. (Kimberly Adams)
Staff Summary: The owner of assessor parcel number 007-181-06 (130 Cogorno Wy) was receiving the 3% "owner occupied" tax cap on the above stated property located in Carson City. The owner was also claiming "owner occupied" status in Washoe County. Per NRS 361.4723 (a) "Primary residence of the owner" means a residence which: (1) Is designated by the owner as the primary residence of the owner in this State, exclusive of any other residence of the owner in this State; The property owners actual primary residence is in fact located in Washoe County. The Assessor's office is requesting that the abatement be adjusted so that the taxes will reflect the correct alternate tax cap for both the 2011/12 and 2012/13 tax year per NRS 361.765. This will result in an increase to the Real Property tax rolls in the amount of $80.78 (2011/12) and $157.16 (2012/13), for a total of $237.94.
B) For Possible Action: To approve the correction, decrease of the taxes for the 2012/13 tax year for parcel number 008-312-20 (1595 N Lompa Ln) per NRS 361.765 in the amount of $45.98. (Kimberly Adams)
Staff Summary: Due to a factual error, the improvement value for the property located at 1595 N Lompa Ln (parcel number 008-312-20) was incorrect for the 2012/13 fiscal year. This resulted in an incorrect tax bill for the 2012/13 year. The Assessor's office is requesting that the current fiscal year taxes be corrected and refunded in the amount of $45.98 per NRS 361.765.
For Possible Action: To approve the reclassification of a vacant civilian Sheriff's Support Specialist position to a sworn Deputy Sheriff position. (Ken Furlong)
Staff Summary: Resulting from the 2010 budget reductions, the detention division staffing was reduced by eight (8) positions. Currently there are 20 sworn positions and two (2) civilian detention positions to staff the facility 24/7. Civilian duty assignments are prohibited from having any direct inmate contact or transport within the facility (such as to and from court).
There are three (3) distinct deputy sheriff defined positions. Of the three (3), and only one can be staffed by a civilian (Control Facility). The reclassification of the vacant civilian position would allow the detention division additional flexibility in staffing and assignments. Further, since civilian employees are prohibited from direct inmate contact, the reclassification would provide for the additional tasking of responding to emergencies and enhance the safety and welfare of both employees and inmates alike.
For Possible Action: To accept the report on the condition of each fund in the treasury and the statements of receipts and expenditures through September 11, 2012 per NRS 251.030 and NRS 354.290. (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. NRS 354.290 requires the County Auditor to report to the Board of Supervisors a statement of revenues and expenditures based on the accounts and funds as were used in the budget. A more detailed accounting is available on the City's website - www.carson.org.
9-4. Health and Human Services
For Possible Action: To accept a grant in the amount of $20,000 in wages for a part-time employee and up to $10,000 to cover other expenses for one year from NeedyMeds. This grant will be effective as of October 15, 2012. The purpose of this grant is to hire an Advocate to promote the NeedyMeds drug discount card and to assist the residents of Carson City to find, apply to and benefit from various programs that assist individuals with their medicine and healthcare costs. (Marena Works)
Staff Summary: NeedyMeds is a 501(c)(3) non-profit information resource devoted to helping people in need find assistance programs to help them afford their medications and costs related to health care. With the free NeedyMeds Drug Discount Card individuals can save up to 80% off the price of their prescription medications. The card may be used by those without insurance and by those who decide not to use their insurance. Carson City is being offered this demonstration grant to see if an impact can be realized in the number of people using a drug discount card. This card is valid on name brand and generic drugs.

For Possible Action: To support and sponsor the efforts of the V&T Railway Reconstruction Commission by applying for a Federal Transportation Administration Sarbanes Grant for approximately $3 million. (Juan Guzman / Ken Dorr, Manhard Consulting)

C) For Possible Action: To approve time extensions for The Seasons LP (Autumn Village I, Amendment No. 4) and The Seasons II LP (Autumn Village II, Amendment No.1) until approximately 2063. (Larry Werner)
Staff Summary: The owners are refinancing the debt on the The Seasons LP (Autumn Village I) and The Seasons II LP (Autumn Village II) projects under a HUD program to reduce overall debt service payments to allow for the properties to pay full property taxes. The properties are currently under ground leases with the City expiring in 2060 and 2061 respectively. HUD requires that a ground lease have a maturity no earlier than 50 years.

Burnaugh was permitted to construct the existing improvements and paid property taxes for years on property along Highway 50 East that was thought to be owned by Burnaugh but actually owned by BLM, and now owned by Carson City.
