Vice-President Buschkoetter announced that in accordance with Section 84-1412 of the Nebraska Revised Statutes, a current copy of the Open Meetings Act is available for review and is posted towards the back of the Council Chambers.

 

ORAL COMMUNICATIONS – PAUL WICE

 

Paul Wice from KGFW Radio stated that Kearney has been his home for 63 years.  He had been afforded the rare privilege to be able to cover City government for the past four decades in the Kearney community.  It is also rare for broadcast journalist to spend their entire career in one location. He had opportunities to go elsewhere in broadcasting and university teaching, but he was glad that he stayed in Kearney.  Kearney is a unique and special place and without a doubt the leading community in out-state Nebraska in terms of business, education, industry, medical availability, agriculture, tourism and any other way that you would want to rate our community.  Each month at Planning Commission and City Council meetings, public hearings are heard for new developments.  Kearney can also boast to an outstanding educational system from UNK (nationally rated), to the KPS faculty and students who are continually recognized for achievements, and to the parochial schools including Zion Lutheran from which he graduated from in 1958. The community is very generous whether it is to benefit United Way, MONA, or other worthwhile causes.  He will now be able to help with Habitat for Humanity.  His experience has been that all the drives in this community for a worthy cause always succeed. 

 

Mr. Wice stated that he is officially retiring from full time work as of this Friday, September 28th, but he will never retire from involvement in this community.  He loves where he has lived these past 60+ years.  Although he will no longer be at the media table, he will still occasionally be attending the Council meetings.  He is looking forward to dedicating more time to special projects in this community.  This Council and all who will follow them will continue to lead the Kearney community to even greater achievements in the future.  The City Managers that he covered were: Ray Lundy, Cliff Stockmeyer, Tom Palmer, Gary Greer, Allen Johnson and Mike Morgan; and Mayors: Doc Richards, Justus Dobesh, Ron Larsen, Pete Kotsiopulos, Bruce Blankenship, Galen Hadley, Stan Clouse and many other staff members. 

 

Council members thanked Paul Wice for his dedication to the community.

 

ORAL COMMUNICATIONS – GOLDEN K KIWANIS

 

Dale Zikmund, President of the Golden K Kiwanis, stated he wanted to present a facsimile check on behalf of their club representing the hours that Golden K members have volunteered for the City during the past fiscal year.  During the year they worked 10,922 hours which they figure is worth at least $10.00 per hour which totals $109,220.00.  The volunteers too love Kearney because it is a great place.  They volunteer their time at Good Samaritan Hospital, Platte River Road Archway, MONA, UNK, all the Kearney schools, Red Cross and the Police Department.

V.    CONSENT  AGENDA  ORDINANCES

 

ORDINANCE NO. 7381 – REPEAL ORDINANCE NO. 7361 AND SELL PORTION OF VACATED AVENUE E

 

Back in 2000 the City received a request from a property owner to purchase some vacated right-of-way. The City of Kearney sold to that abutting property owner the vacated east 17 feet of Avenue E as it abuts Lot 1 except the south 30 feet of Westerbuhr Addition. The property has since changed ownership and in order to clear up title on the parcel, the City needs to sell the vacated east 17 feet as it abuts the south 30 feet of Lot 1, Westerbuhr Addition. This matter was brought forward to the City Council in July of 2007. When the document was submitted to the Register of Deeds, it was noted that the legal description needed to be corrected. This ordinance will rectify any issues with regard to this matter.

 

Council Member Lammers introduced Ordinance No. 7381, being Subsection 1 of Agenda Item V to repeal Ordinance No. 7361 and correct the legal description to sell the vacated east 17 feet of Avenue E as it abuts the south 30 feet of Lot 1, Westerbuhr Addition, an addition to the City of Kearney, Buffalo County, Nebraska, now vacated and being part of Lot 1758, Original Town of Kearney Junction now the City of Kearney, Buffalo County, Nebraska, and moved that the statutory rules requiring ordinances to be read by title on three different days be suspended and said ordinances be considered for passage on the same day upon reading by number only, and then placed on final passage and that the City Clerk be permitted to call out the number of the ordinance on its first reading and then upon its final passage.  Council Member Lear seconded the motion to suspend the rules. President of the Council asked for discussion or if anyone in the audience was interested in the ordinance. No one responded. Clerk called the roll which resulted as follows: Aye: Buschkoetter, Lear, Lammers, Kearney. Nay: None. Clouse absent. Motion to suspend the rules having been concurred in by three-fourths of the City Council, said motion was declared passed and adopted. City Clerk read Ordinance No. 7381 by number. Roll call of those in favor of the passage of said ordinance on the first reading resulted as follows: Aye: Buschkoetter, Lear, Lammers, Kearney. Nay: None. Clouse absent. Motion carried. Ordinance was read by number.

 

Moved by Lear seconded by Buschkoetter that Ordinance No. 7381 be passed, approved and published as required by law. Roll call resulted as follows:  Aye: Buschkoetter, Lammers, Kearney, Lear. Nay: None. Clouse absent. Motion carried.

 

By reason of the roll call voted on the first reading and final passage of the ordinance, Ordinance No. 7381 is declared to be lawfully passed and adopted upon publication in pamphlet form and made available to the public at the Office of the City Clerk, the Kearney Police Department and the Kearney Public Library.

VI.    REGULAR  AGENDA

 

ORDINANCE NO. 7383 – AMEND CHAPTERS 21 AND 22 OF THE CITY CODE

 

Moved by Buschkoetter seconded by Kearney to remove from the table the proposed amendments to Chapter 21 and 22 of the City Code.  Roll call resulted as follows: Aye: Buschkoetter, Kearney, Lear, Lammers. Nay: None. Clouse absent. Motion carried.

 

City Planner Lance Lang stated at the last Council meeting, the Council adopted an ordinance amending Chapter 20 to allow duplex lots to be established by Minor Subdivision along the common wall in District R-2, Urban Residential Mixed-Density District. Revisions to allow townhouse development on fee simple lots were also discussed. The Council continued amending Chapters 21 and 22 to allow staff to clarify the amendments based on discussion held during the public hearing.

 

There are only two changes to the amendments to Chapters 21 and 22, the remainder of the proposed amendments is still valid as presented at the last City Council meeting. The two changes that the Council requested are as follows:

      1)   The required side yard for townhouse developments in Table 21-102 for District R-3 and in Table 22-102 for District R-4 shall remain 15 feet.  At the last meeting, the amendment proposed reduction of this setback to ten feet.

      2)   Note 2 referencing Tables 21-102 and 22-102 shall be amended to read as follows:

A minimum thirty (30) feet of separation shall be maintained between any two (2) adjacent structures containing townhouse units. Such open area shall be managed as common space by a homeowners association.

 

In the amendment presented on September 11, the minimum separation was 20 feet (based on the reduced 10-foot side yard) and the land between the structures could either be part of a private lot, or could be open space managed by the association. The current proposal specifies 30 feet of separation based on the 15-foot side yard requirement, and insures that they cannot be fenced off as part of a private lot, thereby insuring adequate pedestrian circulation throughout the development.

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter stated there was a considerable amount of discussion regarding these two issues at the last meeting and most of his questions were answered at that time.  Council member Lammers agreed. 

 

Council member Kearney stated that he was not uncomfortable changing what was proposed by the Planning Commission regarding these items.  He believed that it should have been remanded back to Planning Commission.  He was uncertain about the impact of the density of these types of living areas would bring in future years.  For these reasons, he was opposed to the amendments.

 

Moved by Lammers seconded by Lear that Ordinance No. Ordinance No. 7383 amending Section 21-102 “Site Development Regulations” of Chapter 21, “District R-3, Urban Residential Multi-Family District (Medium Density)” of the Code of the City of Kearney and Section 22-102 “Site Development Regulations” of Chapter 22, “District R-4, Urban Residential Multi-Family District (High Density)” of the Code of the City of Kearney to allow townhouse development on fee simple lots be placed on first reading, and that the ordinance be read by title on three different days. Vice-President of the Council asked for discussion or if anyone in the audience was interested in the ordinance. No one responded. Clerk called the roll which resulted as follows: Aye: Buschkoetter, Lear, Lammers. Nay: Kearney. Clouse absent. Motion carried. City Clerk read Ordinance No. 7383 by title only.

 

ORDINANCE NO. 7376 – REZONE SOUTH OF 56TH STREET, WEST OF 2ND AVENUE AND EAST OF 17TH AVENUE

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter stated that the Applicants have requested that Ordinance No. 7376 rezoning property located south of 56th Street, west of 2nd Avenue and east of 17th Avenue remain on the table until October 9, 2007. Therefore, no action is necessary.

 

EAGLES FRATERNAL ORDER 2722 MANAGER APPLICATION

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter opened for discussion the application for Corporate Manager of Roland Whitney submitted by Eagles Fraternal Order 2722 in connection with their Class C-11097 liquor license located at 17 West 24th Street.

 

Roland Whitney, 301 East 26th Street, presented this matter to the Council.  Most of their help have been through a “sting” and have never had any trouble.  They always watch for underage drinking.  All their employees are going to take the TIPS class.  Most of their customers are members of the Eagles and they do not have any carry out. 

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter stated their record has been very good.  The last violation they had was in 1975 and 32 years is very good.  Mr. Whitney stated that he has been a member of the Eagle’s Club for 44 years.  He used to manage Grandpa’s Steak House, his uncle ran the Oasis and his aunt ran Dad’s Tavern so he is familiar with the business. 

 

Moved by Lear seconded by Buschkoetter to approve the application for Corporate Manager of Roland Whitney submitted by Eagles Fraternal Order 2722 in connection with their Class C-11097 liquor license located at 17 West 24th Street. Roll call resulted as follows: Aye: Buschkoetter, Kearney, Lear, Lammers. Nay: None. Clouse absent. Motion carried.

 

AWARD BID FOR NORTHWEST WELL FIELD IMPROVEMENTS – PHASE III (WATER CONDITIONING FACILITY AND CONTROL SYSTEM)

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter opened for discussion the bids received for the Northwest Well Field Improvements – Phase III (Water Conditioning Facility and Control System) and to consider approval of Resolution No. 2007-208 awarding the bid to Eriksen Construction from Blair, Nebraska in the amount of $410,900.00 for the construction of the Water Conditioning Facility and rejecting the bids received for the Control System and authorize re-advertising the Control System.

 

Reed Miller from Miller & Associates presented this matter to the Council. At the July 24, 2007 City Council meeting the Council approved the plans and specifications for the North West Well Field Improvements - Phase III.  The Phase III Improvements include a Water Conditioning Facility to treat the water and SCADA System Improvements to communicate with the wells via an automated control system.

 

On September 12, 2007 the City received bids for the Phase III Improvements.  Miller and Associates the City’s Engineer on the project has prepared a letter summarizing the bids and recommending awarding the bids.

 

Two bids were received for Bid A, the Water Conditioning Facility. Eriksen Construction of Blair, Nebraska submitted the low bid which is $107,100.00 below the Engineers Estimate. Two bids were received for Bid B, the SCADA System Improvements. A.W. Schultz of Shawnee, Kansas submitted the low bid for Bid B, in the amount of $210,800.00. However, A. W. Schultz’s bid was a qualified bid and they stated that their bid did not include utilizing the programming services of Technical Maintenance and Service Company as specified in the bid documents. Due to the significant difference between the two bids and the low bid being a qualified bid that does not meet specifications we believe the Bid B work should be re-advertised and re-bid.

 

Funds to pay for the development of the Northwest Well Field including the Water Conditioning Building and SCADA System have been included in the proposed 2007-2008 Budget.  The funds were secured through a loan from the State of Nebraska Drinking Water Revolving Fund.

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter asked how optimistic Mr. Miller was about being more satisfied with the results of a re-bid. Mr. Miller replied he would be very optimistic because he was sure that at least one of the bidders would re-bid and they are trying to get some other bidders to look at the project. The timeline of the first bid was sufficient, but this is a very specialized project.  Most of these bidders come from larger metropolitan areas because there are not many SCADA systems in the community.  Of the two bids received, one was from Lincoln and the other was from Shawnee Mission, Kansas. The condition on the low bid was they would not be using the programmer that the City had requested in the specifications because of his past experience with our system.  Since the bidder did not include what was asked, he asked that his bid not be considered.

 

Moved by Buschkoetter seconded by Kearney to approve the bids received for the Northwest Well Field Improvements – Phase III (Water Conditioning Facility and Control System) and approve Resolution No. 2007-208 awarding the bid to Eriksen Construction from Blair, Nebraska in the amount of $410,900.00 for the construction of the Water Conditioning Facility and rejecting the bids received for the Control System and authorize re-advertising the Control System. Roll call resulted as follows: Aye: Buschkoetter, Lear, Lammers, Kearney. Nay: None. Clouse absent. Motion carried.

AWARD BID FOR DASHER BOARDS FOR INLINE HOCKEY RINK AT APOLLO PARK

 

Vice-President Buschkoetter opened for discussion the bids received for the purchase and installation of dasher boards for an inline hockey rink to be located at Apollo Park from Premier Rinks, dba Athletica in the amount of $24,850.00 and to consider approval of Resolution No. 2007-209.

 

Recreation Superintendent Scott Hayden presented this matter to the Council. The Kearney Park and Recreation Department started an inline hockey program around 1995.  At that time, the Kearney Optimist Club sponsored and purchased a portable rink system call Border Patrol (1-foot high foam panels).  Over the years the concrete was repaired several times in order to keep the playing surface smooth.  However, due to continued concrete heaving and spawling, the Park & Rec Department deemed the surface unplayable and discontinued the program in 2006.

 

In the summer of 2006, Erika Moore approached City staff to see if there was something that the Ice Hockey Association could do to help. A plan was developed to put in permanent dasher boards and modular sport surfacing over the concrete.  The cost of the project would be $75,000-$80,000. Meetings were conducted with the Adult and Youth Ice Hockey Association to determine the need for inline hockey. Both Associations were very much in favor of the project as an inline hockey rink would supplement the ice hockey program nicely.  Inline leagues, camps, tournaments and open play could be conducted.  In December of 2006, the plan was presented to the Park and Recreation Advisory Board and the Board was in favor of the project.

 

The City of Kearney advertised for (1) the purchase and installation of inline hockey modular sport flooring, and (2) the purchase and installation of inline hockey dasher boards for an inline hockey rink at Apollo Park.  The City received the following bids:

 

Bidder

Sport Flooring

Dasher Board

 

Mataflex

Utica, NY

 

$29,900.00

 

$40,500.00

Sport Court of Nebraska

Omaha, NE

 

$43,927.00

 

No Bid

Becker Arena Products

Burnsville, MN

 

$44,425.00

 

$45,950.00

Premier Rinks, dba Athletica

Minneapolis, MN

 

No Bid

 

$24,850.00

 

Staff continues to evaluate the bids received for the sport flooring and will come back at a later date with a recommendation.

 

The Apollo Park Inline Hockey Committee has raised $40,000.00 for this project that will be put towards the dasher boards, flooring, and other amenities (signs, benches). The City of Kearney will spend up to $30,000 from the Park Development Fund and $10,000 from City Sales Tax.

 

They gave the bidders the option to use sports net or chain link and the low bidder chose netting which was even lower than they anticipated.  Mataflex is a company that he is familiar with and has some good references.  The dasher boards take about six weeks to get here and the sports flooring takes about 3-4 weeks, so they will arrive at approximately the same time even with the extra time to do the research on the flooring. The installation will have to be coordinated and their goal is to have it installed before the snow starts falling.

 

Erika Moore, who spearheaded the project from the In-line Hockey committee was unable to attend this meeting, but sent a letter to be read.  She worked very hard these past five months in raising $40,000.00 which is no small task.  She was looking forward to announcing that amount and that the fund raising effort was an amazing process.  She was staggered by how many people and businesses in the Kearney area rallied around a City and private project that will directly impact the youth of our community, as well as offer an opportunity for general fitness to the entire community.  Now that they have reached this $40,000.00 goal, she is hopeful that the City will match these funds in turn as previously discussed.  They will then be able to move forward with the rink set up.  She expressed her thanks to staff and the Council and is looking forward to the next phase of completion.  This will add a whole new dimension to recreation and programming.  It will be another attraction to the City of Kearney.  Their fund raising efforts are largely through sponsorships that will go on the dasher boards and the Optimist Club that also gave a significant portion to the funding.

 

Moved by Kearney seconded by Lammers to approve the bids received for the purchase and installation of dasher boards for an inline hockey rink to be located at Apollo Park from Premier Rinks, dba Athletica in the amount of $24,850.00 and approve Resolution No. 2007-209.
