5. JED PRETTYMAN - Permission To Clean and Landscape Mead Cemetery (Eagle Scout Project)
Jed Prettyman, Boy Scout Troop #297, requested permission to clean and landscape the Mead Cemetery located behind the building occupied by Sutherland Lumber. This is his Eagle Scout project. He asked if there were any funds to landscape with grass or rocks and if he could gain access to the cemetery. Gary Sonntag stated that before any city funds are expended, he would have to verify ownership of the property. Jed stated that he and his mother checked county records and found that the cemetery property is owned by the City. Gary stated that when the building (formerly Wal-Marts) was built, a gate was placed off of their parking lot for the purpose of allowing access to the cemetery. However, there is no water to the property. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved that Jed be allowed to clean and landscape Mead Cemetery and that he coordinate this with Gary Sonntag. Motion seconded by Councilmember McEvoy and carried. It was also recommended that Jed encourage the County to partnership with the City on this endeavor. Mayor Piccolo thanked Jed for his interest.
6. IRRIGATION REPORT - Update
Brianna Welch gave a brief update on the irrigation program and what has been accomplished to this point. A committee, composed of herself, Gary Sonntag, Gus Kalatzes, Keith Grogan and Mayor Piccolo, have set up a pilot program. Instead of a Water Master, each ditch was assigned a Aditch captain@, who would be responsible to turn the gates on and off. Since this was implemented, the system is running a lot more effective than before. Each Aditch captain@ was issued a key for their ditch. Through the help of the City Attorney, a key lease agreement was prepared. Keys and locks were checked out and the program became effective June 1, 2005. The Mayor and Council thanked Brianna for her assistance and for a job well done.

MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved that the Irrigation Management Program be struck from Unfinished Business. Motion seconded by Councilmember McEvoy and carried.
30. CITIZENS SERVICE BUILDING - Contract Awarded
Gary Sonntag reported that the bid received from Stilson and Sons Construction for the Citizens Service Building is in the amount of $287,761.00. When you combine that amount with the $25,000 expended for architectural fees and inspections fees for asbestos and heating and air conditioning, it will exceed the available funding amount of $300,000. He will not be able to award the project until this is resolved. Options that can be considered are to move ahead with the project and seek additional funding through the CIB or elsewhere, realizing that the earliest opportunity for the CIB would be in July. Another option would be to eliminate some components of the project. He investigated and found that this would amount to $16,000. The last and most unpopular option would be to demolish the building and start over. Gary recommended that the city remain optimistic in seeking additional funding and move ahead to award the project. This should be done within 30 days so that the contractors= prices for materials and subcontractors can be locked in. Total cost of the project would be $325,000. However, there should be a contingency for unforseen things. Police Chief Shilaos stated that he is seeking a grant from a federal agency that works with small police and fire departments. It looks promising but nothing definite. Gary stated that due to transitional changes in the Engineering Department, there might be approximately $20,000 of unexpended funds at the end of this fiscal year that could be applied towards this project. Due to the implementation of the Apilot program@ for irrigation, there will also be $5,000 unexpended in this department. These two funds would total the additional $25,000 that is needed until such time that additional funding can be secured. Police Chief Shilaos stated that as there is more asbestos in the building than was originally thought, it might be possible to go back to the CIB with this issue. Mayor Piccolo encouraged the Council to move ahead with this project. MOTION. Councilmember Tatton moved that the remodeling of the Citizens Service building move ahead with the transfer of additional funds as outlined by Mr. Sonntag and that these amounts be replaced if additional funding is received through the CIB or the USDA., and that the project be awarded to Stilson and Sons Construction.
