Proctor Street).

13. City Manager 

For Possible Action: To authorize the City Manager to add the position of Deputy City Manager to the FY 2012/2013 City Manager's budget within the range of Unclassified UNC 46. (Larry Werner)

Staff Summary: As described in the Explanation for Recommended Board Action there is a need for the Deputy City Manager position to be restored. The main drivers for this request are to maintain and perpetuate the performance management system that the City began implementing in 2007; to implement the initiatives that the Board has established (town hall meetings, community outreach, etc.) that we have not been able to address through reduced staffing; grant coordination; and general upper management support.

14. Supervisor Shirk 

For Possible Action: Discussion and possible action regarding the annual budget process including conducting budget hearings whereby departments would present their detailed budgets.

Summary: When it comes to budget specifics, instead of being able to have a discussion with Department Managers, one prior Board opted out, preferring to have a discussion at the policy level only with City staff. Board members can ask for special close door discussion - one with City staffers only.

My opinion - without having Department Managers present there is no challenge to reveal budget details and demand clarity. I believe change is needed in how we negotiate a balanced budget. A prior Board sequestered public input and eliminated their inclusion in the budget review process with Department Managers. This is wrong and needs to be reversed by this Board to permit openness and transparency. Budget reform requires tackling the accepted, yet, expensive and inefficient ways we conduct business. If we truly want to improve and overhaul our budget, then the Board must start by reforming the way they conduct budget hearings. The outcome of these hearings will have a direct impact on taxes spent, the quality of life experienced and the financial health of families, therefore, their presence should be encouraged.

Staff Summary: The Health Director has an obligation to train and provide ongoing educational development of the Board of Health on the core functions of public health, their roles and responsibilities, advocacy, policy and applicable state and local laws. All Boards of Health are obligated to either enact or recommend policies that are in the interest of the public's health. A comprehensive orientation allows for an opportunity for the Board to be informed of their roles and responsibilities. 

B) For Possible Action: Presentation with possible action to accept the Carson City Health and Human Services agency strategic plan. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: A local health department must have an agency strategic plan in order to seek Public Health Accreditation. The Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) standard 5.3.1A states: "A functional and useful strategic plan requires that it be understood by staff and implemented by the health department. The development of such a plan requires a planning process that considers opinions and knowledge from across the health department, assesses the larger environment in which the health department operates, uses its organizational strengths and addresses its weaknesses, links to the health improvement plan that has been adopted by the community, and links to the health department's quality improvement plan" and 5.3.2A adds: "A strategic plan defines and determines the health department's roles, priorities, and direction over three to five years. A strategic plan sets forth what the department plans to achieve as an organization, how it will achieve it, and how it will know if it has achieved it. The strategic plan provides a guide for making decisions and allocating resources to pursue its strategies and priorities." The adoption of the agency strategic plan completes the three pre-requisites required to apply for accreditation. 

C) For Possible Action: Report, discussion and possible direction to staff regarding the Director's report on Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) activities. (Marena Works)

Staff Summary: Provide an update on CCHHS. This is an opportunity to inform the Board of Health of current activities, programs and services within CCHHS.

Staff Summary: In the 2013 legislative session, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services will be requesting a bill to integrate the division of mental health with the division of health. At the same time new requirements in health care with regards to the Affordable Care Act (ACA) are beginning to come into play. Romaine Gilliland has been hired to assist CCHHS to monitor pertinent legislation, changes at the Nevada State Health Department and ACA impacts. 

F) For Possible Action: Presentation with possible action to accept the Carson City Health and Human Services (CCHHS) first Annual Report 2012. (Marena Works)
