STARTING TODAY WITH ITEM 1A ANYTHING IN OUR PACKET. OUR GREAT BIG VERY THICK PACKET COUNCIL THAT YOU NEEDED EXTRA INFORMATION ARE YOU HAVING QUESTIONS JUST TO START OFF WHEN YOU WANT TO DO PUBLIC ADDRESS. OH I DO. THANK YOU. IT'S GONNA LEAVE MR FARMER HANGING OUT THERE. I'M SORRY MR. FARMER I JUST JUMPED RIGHT OVER THAT. NOW IT IS TIME FOR OUR PUBLIC ADDRESS. WOULD YOU LIKE TO COME FORWARD

[PUBLIC ADDRESS]

PLEASE SIR. YES. IT'S JUST YOU TODAY. WE'RE GLAD TO SEE YOU THANK YOU. I'M JESSIE FARMER 57 23 SOUTH ALWAYS I'M INFLUENCED BY RATE INCREASES ON MY ON MY WATER BILL WHICH IS A STATEMENT OF FOUR DIFFERENT UTILITIES AND THAT COMBINED INCREASE WAS AN EIGHT POINT TO TWO PERCENT INCREASE THAT I NOTICED FROM NOVEMBER FROM OCTOBER I GUESS IN THE FISCAL YEAR AND THE NOVEMBER STATEMENT WHICH I RECEIVED A FEW DAYS AGO. MR. FREEMAN CAN YOU PULL THAT MICROPHONE UP THERE. WE WANT TO TRY AND SO THERE YOU GO IN DISCUSSING THAT I NOTICED THIS AGENDA THAT YOU HAD ON TO SEE AND TO BE TO BE TO SEE THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS INCREASE OF A MAJOR CHANGE OF ORDER ON THE INSTALLATION OF A SEWER LINE GONE OUT TO THE WEST SIDE OF TOWN. NOW THAT'S ON HERE. IT'S NOT YOUR AGENDA IT'S THE. I WAS RAISING THE QUESTION WELL NOW THERE'S A BOND THAT'S BEEN LEVIED TO EXECUTE THAT AND I'M TALKING WITH PEOPLE IN THE NORTH PART OF AMARILLO THAT LIVE IN 60000 AND 70000 DOLLAR VALUE HOMES THAT LIVE IN OUR NORTH PART OF OUR CITY AND THEY'RE BEING ASKED TO SEE IF. EIGHT POINT TWO PERCENT INCREASE ON THEIR ON THEIR UTILITY BILL. ON THE CITIES OF WHAT WE CALL A WATER BILL. AND THEY'RE ALSO SEEING THE SAME POINT 3 3 PERCENT INCREASE ON THEIR APPRAISED VALUE OF THEIR PROPERTIES. NOW THAT'S THAT'S A PRETTY HORRIFIC CHARGE TO SOME OF THESE PEOPLE AROUND VISIT WITH ON THE NORTH SIDE OF OUR CITY AND WE HAVE THE BARRIO WE HAD THE TO DEVELOP PLANS TO HOW TO REDEVELOP THESE NEIGHBORHOODS. WELL YOU'RE NOT GONNA BE ABLE TO DEVELOP YOU TAKE THE MONEY OUT OF THESE PEOPLE'S POCKETS FOR THEM TO WORK IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOODS. SO I'M COMING HERE TO ASK IF SOME PLACE IN YOUR FUTURE THAT YOU

[00:05:05]

CAN RELIEVE SOME OF THIS STRAIN ON THEIR BUDGETS. BY PUTTING THE BUDGET RESPONSIBILITY ON THE DEVELOPMENT AREAS WHERE YOU'RE ASKING FOR ELEVEN MILLION DOLLARS TO DEVELOP A NEW PART OF OUR CITY WITH THE BETTER SEWAGE SYSTEM. YOU ALSO GOT A WATER LINE OUT THERE THAT WAS PUT IN BY ENTERPRISE MONEY AND THAT'S ALL SUPPORT AND THE NEW DEVELOPMENT AREAS OF OUR CITY. BUT THE PEOPLE LIVE IN THE EXISTING NEIGHBORHOODS ARE HAVING TO PAY FOR THAT AND I DON'T THINK THAT'S FAIR TO THEM AND I THINK THERE'S SOME WAY IN YOUR SYSTEM. OF GIVING TIME OR. ATTENTION TO THEIR BUDGETS OF SAYING WE'LL PUT THAT EXPENSE ON THOSE NEW DEVELOPMENT AREAS AND QUIT PUTTING THAT BURDEN BACK ON THE OLD RATEPAYERS SOMEHOW TRY TO START WORKING YOUR RATE PAYER SYSTEM WHERE THESE PEOPLE IN THESE LOWER PRICED HOMES CAN NOT BE IMPACTED SO DRAMATICALLY. AND I THINK AN EIGHT POINT TWO PERCENT IS TOO DRAMATIC PERSONALLY AND SEVEN POINT THIRTY THREE PERCENT APPRAISED VALUES IS A DRASTIC INCREASE THE COST OF IT. THANK YOU. THANK YOU MR. FARMER. OK. NOW THANK YOU COUNCIL MEMBER PANEL FOR PUTTING ME ON THE RIGHT TRACK THERE. WELCOME. YES. AS CITY MANAGER

[D. CONSIDER APPROVAL - CHANGE ORDER NO. 4, NORTHWEST INTERCEPTOR: (Contact: Matt Thomas, City Engineer) Awarded to McKee Utility, lnc. - $150,000.00 Original Contract $10,650,000.00 Current Change Order $150,000.00 Previous Change Orders $178,484.25 Revised Contract Total $10,978,484.25 The change order includes the construction of a sewer main extension needed to serve the development of the Texas Tech University Veterinary School and other future development near Evans Drive. This proposed change order will take advantage of an existing contractor working in the area on the outfall main that this line ties into. This will provide a more efficient and cost effective project by reducing mobilization cost and time. Additionally, with the installation of this main, the City will be able to collect frontage fees from other future developments served by this main.]

TO MAYBE MAKE A COMMENT ON ITEM D. YES. STATEMENT OF FACT. SURE. WITH REGARD ON THE I'M GONNA BRING UP FLOYD HARTMAN ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER TO TOUCH ON THAT MAYOR. COUNCIL MEMBERS FLOYD HARTMAN ASSISTANT CITY MANAGER FOR DEVELOPMENT SERVICES. YES. ITEM D ON THE CONSENT AGENDA IS A CHANGE ORDER CURRENT CHANGE ORDER REQUESTS FOUR HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS PREVIOUS CHANGE ORDERS OF ONE HUNDRED SEVENTY EIGHT THOUSAND. THE ORIGINAL CONTRACTOR AS YOU SEE WAS TEN MILLION SIX HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. THAT WAS THE NORTHWEST INTERCEPTOR AS WE'VE DESCRIBED IT TO YOU BEFORE THE EXPANSION OF THE SEWER SYSTEM ON THE WEST SIDE OF TOWN FOR DEVELOPMENT ESPECIALLY SERVING THE MEDICAL CENTER THAT IS CRITICAL FOR THE GROWTH. THE EXISTING LAND THAT SERVES THE NORTHWEST IS OVERLOADED AND THAT'S THE PRIMARY REASON FOR ALL OF THAT EXPENSE THAT'S OVER A NUMBER OF YEARS SINCE THE MEDICAL CENTER STARTED DEVELOPING THAT WE CANNOT OPERATE EFFICIENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY. WELL SOME THINGS THAT WILL OCCUR UNDER THIS CHANGE THE PIPELINE WERE SUCH THAT TO LIFT STATIONS HAVE ALREADY BEEN ABANDONED. IT ALLOWS US TO ADD A PIPELINE IN THE NEAR FUTURE. HOPEFULLY THAT WILL ABANDON TWO MORE LEFT STATIONS. SO ULTIMATELY THIS PIPELINE WILL ELIMINATE FOUR LIFT STATIONS OUT OF OPERATION AND POSSIBLY A FIFTH. SO IT HAS EFFICIENCY OF OPERATIONS BUT THIS SPECIFIC CHANGE ORDER THAT'S LISTED HERE TODAY IS TO SERVE THE NEW AREA AROUND WHERE THE TEXAS TECH VET SCHOOL IS IS GOING TO SERVE ADJACENT PROPERTY AS WELL.

ONE OF THE REASONS FOR IT IS THAT PROPERTY ALREADY HAS EXISTING SERVICE. THAT FLOWS INTO THAT OVERLOADED LINE THAT GOES THE OTHER WAY. SO IT'S NOT EFFECTIVE FOR US TO CONTINUE PUTTING MORE LOAD ON AN OVERLOADED LINE. SO THAT'S WHY THE CITY'S PAYING FOR THIS PIECE OF LINE IS BECAUSE OF REGULATORY REQUIREMENTS AND PROTECTION OF THE CITIZENS AND THE ENVIRONMENT RELATED TO AN OVERLOADED SEWER LINE. ALL RIGHT. ANYTHING ELSE. THANK YOU. ALL RIGHT. ONE COMMENT. JUST THE LAST LINE OF THAT ITEM DOES SPECIFY THAT WITH THE INSTALLATION OF THIS MAIN THE CITY YOU'LL BE ABLE TO COLLECT FRONTAGE FEES FROM OTHER FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS SERVED BY THIS MAN. CAN YOU JUST SPEAK TO THAT. SURE. ANYTIME A LINE IS PAID FOR WHETHER IT'S BY THE CITY OR DEVELOPER AND EXTENDS OUT INTO THESE OPEN SPACES FOR DEVELOPMENT. OUR POLICIES ARE SUCH THAT A FRONTAGE FEE CAN BE APPLIED FOR THE 20 YEAR LIFE FIRST 20 YEARS OF THAT LINE TO RICA COLLECT FEES RELATED TO THAT INSTALLATION SINCE THE CITY IS PAYING FOR THIS PIECE OF LINE. THE CITY WILL BE THE BENEFICIARY WHEN OTHERS TOWN TO THAT LAND WITHIN THE FIRST 20 YEARS OF ITS LIFE. SO THAT COMES OUT ABOUT ELEVEN DOLLARS A FOOT UNDER THE CURRENT POLICY SUCH THAT SOME OF THAT EXPENSE CAN BE RECOUPED IF GROWTH OCCURS WITHIN 20 YEARS AT TO THAT EXISTING LINE THAT'S ADJACENT THE FRONTAGE OF THAT PROPERTY FRONTAGE OF THAT ROAD OR THAT EASEMENT THAT THAT LINE GOES INTO. SO IF IT'S FIVE HUNDRED FEET IN THAT THAT WOULD BE FIVE HUNDRED TIMES ELEVEN THAT THE CITY WOULD RECOUP. IF A DEVELOPER PUTS THAT IN DEVELOPER RECOUP THAT LAND THAT THAT FUNDING. OK SO IT'S IT'S A COMPONENT OF RECAPTURE OF COST RELATED TO SUBDIVISIONS FOR OTHER DEVELOPMENTS OR SITE PLANS. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS AND JUST THAT THIS CHANGES COSTS DOLLAR AMOUNT FOR THIS PARTICULAR

[00:10:03]

CHANGE. ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS ONE HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAR AND IT'S TAKING CARE OF SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO.

AND SINCE THE QUIT IT'S TAKEN CARE OF SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO AND SINCE EQUIPMENT'S ALREADY THERE WE DIDN'T. GETTING A BETTER PRICE FOR THIS THAN WE WOULD OTHERWISE GET HERE NEXT YEAR PREVENTS THAT LOAD FROM GOING IN THAT OVERLOADED LAND. ANY OTHER QUESTIONS COUNSEL. THANK YOU FOR. ANY OTHER THINGS THAT WE NEED TO TOUCH ON BEFORE WE MOVE TO ITEM 1A. WELL THAT'S GOOD. THANK YOU.

OKAY. SO NOTHING ON ITEM 1A THEN MOVING TO ITEM ONE B WHICH IS A PRESENTATION ON

[A. Review agenda items for regular meeting and attachments;]

[B. Presentation AMA Safety Town;]

SAFETY DOWN. WELL WE'VE GOT FIREFIGHTERS HERE TO TALK TO US ABOUT SAFETY TOWN AND AS WE ALL KNOW IT'S ALWAYS GOOD THAT. YOU BROUGHT MOVIES. THAT'S ALWAYS POPULAR FINANCE DEPARTMENT NEVER BRINGS MOVIES. WHERE KIDS CAN HAVE FUN AND ENJOY THEMSELVES. INTERACTIVE. LEARNING. 15 DIFFERENT AGENCIES CAME TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS POSSIBLE. NEARLY 6000 KIDS CAME THROUGH A SAFETY TOWN THIS YEAR TO LEARN ALL SORTS OF SAFETY MESSAGES. THEY GOT WET. THEY LAUGHED. THEY DANCED. AND THEY GOT TO LEAVE. REAL LIFE SUPERHEROES. CHILDREN CAME IN BY THE BUS LOAD FROM ALL 26 COUNTIES OF THE TEXAS MAN. OVER THE COURSE OF FIVE DAYS. AT RANDALL COUNTY FIRE STATION. AND THEY. LOVED. THAT'S. HER. TOWN. ROCKS. FIRST OF ALL THANK YOU ALL FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ALLOW US TO PRESENT ON SAFETY TOWN. MY NAME IS CAPTAIN COL JOYE. AND I'M JEFF JUSTICE COMMUNITY LIAISON. WE'D ALSO LIKE TO THANK OUR CHIEFS FOR ENABLING US TO EVEN DO SOMETHING LIKE THIS. IT'S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE AND THEY LET US RUN WITH IT. WE RUN THE PUBLIC INFORMATION PUBLIC AFFAIRS FUNCTION FOR THE ADMIRAL FIRE DEPARTMENT AND RFD MISSION IS TO PROTECT OUR COMMUNITY BY PROVIDING THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF COMPASSIONATE AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES. JEFF AND MYSELF CAME INTO THIS ROLE ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO AND WHEN WHEN WE TOOK. THE PUBLIC AFFAIRS ROLE OVER FOR RFD WE WANTED TO LOOK AT THE AT HOW WE OPERATED. AND WE WANTED TO RUN THE PUBLIC AFFAIRS PUBLIC EDUCATION FUNCTION OF HFT THE SAME WAY THAT WE RUN OUR EMERGENCY SERVICES WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY OF COMPASSIONATE AND PROFESSIONAL CARE. WE LOOKED AT SOME OF THE PROBLEMS THAT WE WERE BEING PRESENTED WITH THE NUMBER OF SCHOOLS THAT EDUCATE THE SAFETY MESSAGES THAT WE WANTED TO PRESENT TO THE STUDENTS AND HOW WE'VE DONE IT IN THE PAST. WE'VE LEARNED IN THE FIRE INDUSTRY THAT JUST BECAUSE YOU'VE DONE SOMETHING FOR A LONG TIME DOESN'T MEAN IT'S THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND EFFICIENT WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THAT MISSION. SO OUR CHIEFS ALLOWED US THE FREEDOM TO BRAINSTORM AND COME UP WITH NEW IDEAS AND SAFETY TONE WAS ONE OF THOSE IDEAS. WE WERE ABLE TO PULL TOGETHER ABOUT 15 15 TO 17 AGENCIES AND PARTNER TOGETHER WITH THEM TO CREATE A SAFETY TOWN SAFETY

[00:15:05]

TOWN WAS ESSENTIAL. WE'VE RUN TWO OF THEM. THE FIRST ONE WAS IN THE SPRING OF 2019 AND IT WAS FOR KINDERGARTEN THROUGH SECOND GRADE STUDENTS. THE SECOND ONE WAS IN THE FALL OF 2019 AND IT WAS THIRD GRADE THROUGH FIFTH GRADE STUDENTS COMBINED.

WE'VE SEEN ABOUT 10000 STUDENTS FROM ALL OVER THE TEXAS PANHANDLE INCLUDING WESTERN OKLAHOMA AND EASTERN NEW MEXICO. SO THE REAL ISSUE WAS ALL OF THE SCHOOLS WERE CONTACTING US AT THE END OF LAST YEAR DURING THE START TESTING BECAUSE THE KIDS NOT TAKING THE TEST HAD TO BE OUT OF SCHOOL ALL DAY. SO THEY WANTED TO COME TO OUR FIRE STATIONS AND TAKE TOURS AND HAVE US VISIT THEM AND THINGS LIKE THAT AND IT WAS OVERWHELMING. WE ONLY HAVE 17 FRONTLINE TRUCKS. WE HAVE 13 STATIONS AND WE HAVE TO CONTINUALLY YOU KNOW COVER THE CITY. SO WE DIDN'T WANT TO TURN IN THESE KIDS AWAY OR THESE TOURS AWAY SO WE DECIDED LET'S MAKE A PLACE WHERE THEY CAN ALL COME AT THE SAME TIME. AND WITHIN THAT THREE DAY PERIOD THE FIRST TIME WE SAW ALMOST FIVE THOUSAND THIRTY SIX OTHER KIDS 4000 KIDS. AND NOW IT'S TO A POINT WHERE WE FEEL LIKE THE NEXT ONE IS GOING TO BE ALMOST MORE THAN WE CAN HANDLE. WE HAVE LITERALLY RUN OUT OF SPACE IN THAT GIANT BUILDING AT RANDALL COUNTY AND WE AGAIN DON'T WANT TO TURN ANY OF THESE KIDS AWAY. WE DON'T WANT SCHOOLS NOT COMING HERE. SO. OUR AGENCY FIREFIGHTERS WE'RE ONE OF THE ONLY AGENCIES MAYBE IN THE WORLD THAT WE WORKED REALLY HARD TO PUT OURSELVES OUT OF BUSINESS. WE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT AND. PRIORITIZE TEACHING KIDS ABOUT FIRE SAFETY AND HOW TO BE SAFER. WHAT THIS EVENT DOES IS IT. IT'S A FUN INTERACTIVE HANDS ON EVENT THAT THAT STUDENTS COME AND LEARN ABOUT SAFETY MESSAGING FROM ALL OF THE AGENCIES INVOLVED. THE LIST I BELIEVE YOU HAVE A HANDOUT LISTS ALL THE PARTNERING AGENCIES. EACH AGENCY WAS REQUIRED TO BRING WITH THEM A AGE APPROPRIATE SAFETY MESSAGE FOR THE KIDS.

EVERYTHING WAS ASKED TO BE HANDS ON AND INTERACTIVE AND WE HAD TREMENDOUS FEEDBACK FROM THE TEACHERS AND SCHOOLS. WE HAD. 30 YEAR TEACHERS SAY THAT THIS WAS THE BEST FIELD TRIP THAT THEY'VE EXPERIENCED IN THEIR CAREERS. OUR NEXT EVENT IS IN SPRING OF 2019. AND WE HAVEN'T OPENED UP THE REGISTRATION. FORM YET AND WE ALREADY HAVE 2000 KIDS THAT ARE COMMITTED TO COMING TO THAT. WE'RE EXPECTING SOMEWHERE AROUND 6000 KIDS AT OUR NEXT EVENT. AND LIKE JEFF SAID WE'RE BEGINNING TO OUTGROW THE SPACE THAT THAT RANDALL COUNTY HAS A LOT TO US. WHAT WE'RE DOING TODAY WHAT WE WANTED TO DO IS FIRST OF ALL I JUST SAID THANK OUR CHIEFS THANK YOU GUYS FOR THIS TIME. BUT WE'RE ALSO SEEKING THE COMMISSION'S ENDORSEMENT ON ON SAFETY TOWN AND ALLOWING US TO LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO CREATE A PERMANENT FIXTURE WITHIN THE CITY OF AMARILLO. WE WANT SOMETHING THAT AMARILLO WOULD BE WE'LL BE PROUD OF THAT AFTRA CAN TAKE OWNERSHIP OF AND CREATE SOMETHING THAT BECOMES AN ANNUAL ICON TO BRING STUDENTS AND SCHOOLS FROM ALL OVER THE REGION. THE TEXAS PANHANDLE INTO OUR CITY AND GIVE ALL OF THESE KIDS THE SAME OPPORTUNITY THAT RFD PROVIDES TO THE STUDENTS WITHIN OUR CITY LIMITS. WE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE WE WANT. THE CITY AND THE CITIZENS TO TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THIS SAFETY TOWN WITHOUT IT COSTING TAXPAYERS ANY MONEY OBVIOUSLY. SO WE WOULD LIKE TO FIND PARTNERS AND SPONSORS TO HELP FUND THIS PROGRAM. WE HAVE SEVERAL PEOPLE THAT ARE INTERESTED BUT WE REALLY LIKE WE SAID ARE SEEKING YOUR ENDORSEMENT TO MOVE FORWARD WE WANT TO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR TIME AND ALLOWING US TO PRESENT TO YOU. I THINK WE HAVE SOME QUESTIONS. I'M GUESSING THAT WE DO COUNSEL WHO WANTS TO START LADIES. HOWARD IS GIVING YOU ALL THE TABLE. I WOULD BE INTERESTED IN HEARING SOME OF THE IDEAS IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU'VE BEEN MULLING AROUND ON. AS FAR AS WHAT SAFETY TOWN LOOKS LIKE IT LOOK LIKE WELL YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT SOME VISION FOR SOME OF THE FUTURE THINGS AND ICONIC OF WHAT WOULD DRAW PEOPLE HERE EVEN AS LIKENED HIS OWN ACTIONS. SO I'D LOVE TO HEAR SOME OF YOUR CREATIVE THOUGHTS ON THAT. WE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO VISIT FRESCO FIRE DEPARTMENT AND THEY HAVE WHAT WE WOULD CONSIDER THE TAJ MAHAL OF OF

[00:20:02]

SAFETY TOWNS IN THE UNITED STATES. WE VISITED THERE AND WE WE LEARNED ABOUT HOW THEY OPERATE. THEY HAVE WHAT LOOKS LIKE A FIRE STATION WITH A MINIATURE TOWN ATTACHED TO IT WITH STREET STOPLIGHTS MINIATURE BUILDINGS WHERE THEY TEACH STUDENTS ABOUT ROAD SAFETY FIRE SAFETY SEVERE WEATHER SAFETY ALL OF THESE THINGS WE LEARNED FROM THAT. BUT WE CAME BACK AND WE LIKE OUR IDEA BETTER. WE WE'VE INSTEAD OF JUST BE BEING A FIRE ORIENTED LOCATION. WE'VE BEEN ABLE TO DO SOMETHING THAT YOU DON'T SEE OFTEN. WE'VE PULLED TOGETHER A 15 AGENCIES THAT ALL HAVE A SAFETY MESSAGE. AND SO WE WANT TO CREATE SOMETHING SIMILAR. A TOWN LIKE ENVIRONMENT WITH WITH 15 DIFFERENT AGENCIES THAT ARE ABLE TO PROVIDE A SAFETY MESSAGE TO THESE KIDS GIVING THEM A HANDS ON INTERACTIVE ENVIRONMENT. NOT ONLY THAT BUT CREATE A MORE STERILE ENVIRONMENT FOR THESE KIDS TO COME BECAUSE WHEN THEY COME TO OUR STATION ARE CLIMBING ON OUR FIRE TRUCKS PUTTING ON OUR GEAR AND CANCER IS A BIG CONCERN IN OUR SERVICE RIGHT NOW. SO THAT'S SOMETHING WE'D LIKE TO GET AWAY FROM AS WELL. JUST CREATED AN ALL AROUND FUN INTERACTIVE ENVIRONMENT FOR THESE KIDS SO THAT THEY CAN CLIMB ON EVERYTHING AND LEARN AT THE SAME TIME. IT'S HARD TO COME UP WITH AN EXACT NUMBER BECAUSE IT HAPPENS SO OFTEN. WE ESTIMATE THAT WE HAVE CLOSE TO 10 8000 KIDS EVERY YEAR THEY COME TO TOUR OUR FIRE STATIONS. WE HAVE GROUPS OF WELL OVER 100 KIDS THAT COME FROM A SCHOOL TO A FIRE STATION FOR A TOUR THERE. THEY'RE CRAWLING ON OUR FIRE TRUCKS. WE WANT TO GIVE THEM THAT THAT EXPERIENCE AND THAT OPPORTUNITY. BUT OUR FIRE TRUCKS LIKE HE SAID THEY'RE NOT STERILE. AND OUR GUYS ARE CONSTANT. WE RUN 24000 CALLS A YEAR SO OUR GUYS ARE RESPONDING TO CALLS AND THEY CREATE SOME SOME PROBLEMS AS FAR AS LEAVING GROUPS UNATTENDED IN THE FIRE STATION WHEN THE CREW LEAVES. SO BY CREATING A LOCATION THAT'S SPECIFICALLY FOCUSED ON PUBLIC EDUCATION WE FEEL LIKE IT WOULD IT WOULD CREATE A SAFER AND STERILE ENVIRONMENT. SO YOU SAID THIS LAST YEAR 2020 YOU'RE PROJECTING AROUND 6000 SO DOES THAT KIND OF THE MAXIMUM IS THAT WHAT I'M HEARING YOU THINK YOU CAN YOU CAN ABSORB AND THEN WHAT WOULD BE LIKE WHAT. WHAT IS THE UPSIDE POTENTIAL. HOW MANY THAT IF YOU HAD FACILITIES YOU COULD SERVICE. SO OUR FIRST EVENT WE SAW 30 600 KIDS OVER THREE DAYS OF THAT CAPPED OUT. THAT'S AS MUCH AS WE ACCEPTED. OUR SECOND EVENT. WE EXTENDED TO A FIVE DAY PERIOD AND WE SAW A 50 700 KIDS. OUR NEXT EVENT WE'VE LEARNED THAT OUR OUR SWEET SPOT IS SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FIVE AND FIFTY FIVE HUNDRED FIVE THOUSAND FIFTY FIVE HUNDRED KIDS OVER A FIVE DAY PERIOD. WE'RE EXPECTING THAT IT'S MAYBE A GOOD PROBLEM TO HAVE BUT WE'RE EXPECTING IN THE SPRING TO HAVE TO TURN KIDS AWAY. WE ALREADY HAVE 2000 KIDS SIGNED UP THROUGH THE WOW PROGRAM THAT OFFERS OPPORTUNITIES TO RURAL KIDS. SO THOSE 2000 KIDS THAT'S NOT ANY OF THE HST OR S.A.T. STUDENTS WE'RE EXPECTING CLOSE TO 6000 THAT WE'RE GOING TO FACILITATE. IF WE HAD. A PERMANENT FACILITY WE COULD SPREAD THESE NUMBERS OUT THROUGHOUT THE YEAR. PUBLIC SAFETY. IS REQUIRED CURRICULUM IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. IN ADDITION THE REASON THAT WE HAVE A SPRING AND A FALL EVENT IS DUE TO THE STAR TESTING FOR THIRD AND FOURTH GRADE STUDENTS. THE KINDERGARTEN FIRST AND SECOND I KNOW THIS BECAUSE MY WIFE IS A SCHOOL TEACHER. THEY ARE ASKED TO KINDLY EXIT THE SCHOOL OF THOSE OTHER KIDS TAKE THAT TEST. AND SO WHAT WE SAW WHEN WE CREATED SAFETY TOWN WERE SCHOOLS WE HAD A HUGE INFLUX OF SCHOOLS WANTING TO COME TO HER OUR FIRE STATIONS IF WE CAN OFFER THIS TYPE OF ENVIRONMENT ON A YEAR ROUND BASIS. THE UPSIDE TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION WOULD BE. THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS.

BASICALLY. WE FEEL LIKE THAT WE COULD STAFF IT IN A WAY THAT WE WOULD BE ABLE TO FACILITATE TOURS AND PUBLIC SAFETY EDUCATION THROUGHOUT THE YEAR I HAD ONE FINAL QUESTION SO YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT THE FIVE DAY. DID YOU SEE THIS EARLIER HOW MANY HOURS DO YOU HAVE THOSE KIDS DURING THE DAY. ABOUT SIX HOURS. I HOPE. THEY

[00:25:02]

WERE LONG DAY. THAT'S FIVE TIMES SIX. YEAH IT'S A LOT OF HOURS. I MEAN I'M THINKING OF LIKE VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS AND YOU KNOW IT'S LIKE OVERTIME THOSE HAVE GOTTEN SHORTER AND SHORTER. THOSE KIDS WEREN'T THERE NECESSARILY FOR THE FULL TIME OUR FIRST EVENT WE HAD. IT WAS A THREE DAY EVENT. WE HAD A MORNING SESSION AND AN AFTERNOON SESSION EACH DAY. WE'RE STILL PLAYING WITH THE SCHEDULING DUE TO THE THE LIMITS THAT ARE IMPOSED ON US ON THE SIZE OF THE BUILDING AND WHETHER WAS A CONCERN IN THE FALL. IT RAINED THE ENTIRE TIME SO EVERYTHING WAS MOVED INDOORS. BUT THOSE KIDS WE WERE WE WERE OPEN FOR SIX HOURS. MOST OF THOSE GROUPS STAYED FOR APPROXIMATELY THREE HOURS THE FIRST GO ROUND THE SECOND GO ROUND. WE HAD GROUPS WHICH STINNETT IT TO ALL DAY. SO THEY WANTED TO BE THERE ALL DAY THEY COULD. AND A LOT OF THEM BROUGHT THEIR PACKED LUNCHES AND HAD LUNCH AND AND THEN GOT TO DO THINGS TWICE IF THEY WANTED TO BECAUSE THERE IS OBSTACLE COURSES LIKE THIS ONE HERE. THERE'S I MEAN THERE'S A LOT OF FUN STUFF TO GET WET. THAT'S THEIR FAVORITE THING. BUT. WE WANT. WE DO WANT TO SAY THIS. WE CAME UP WITH THIS IDEA OF SAFETY DOWN AFTER HE DID BUT THOSE NAMES ON YOU ON THE LIST THAT YOU HAVE EVERY ONE OF THOSE AGENCIES THEY PITCHED IN JUST AS MUCH AS WE DID PROVIDING MANPOWER.

EQUIPMENT RESOURCES ATMOS ENERGY FED ALL OF OUR VOLUNTEERS AT THE FIRST EVENT. SO EVERYBODY ON THAT LIST WAS A HUGE CONTRIBUTOR TO THIS EVENT. YOU'VE GOT SOME GREAT PARTNERS ON HERE. AND I DO WANT TO RECOGNIZE YALE'S LEADERSHIP AND JUST THE CREATIVITY AND THE VISION. AND SO CONGRATULATIONS ON SUCH A SUCCESSFUL PROGRAM. THANK YOU. THANKS PAUL. YOU HAVE A QUESTION. NO I DO NOT GET A QUESTION OR TWO A STATEMENT FIRST IT SOUNDED LIKE A WONDERFUL PROGRAM I THINK THE KIDS WOULD ENJOY IT AND WE NEED TO KEEP IT GOING SOMEHOW. WHAT IS THE LOCATION OF THE RANDALL COUNTY PROPERTY SAID RANDALL COUNTY FIRE STATION NUMBER ONE WHICH IS AT ELEVEN ELEVEN EAST LOOP 335 THE BIG IT USED TO BE AN EVENT CENTER ON THE SOUTH LOOP. OKAY WHAT'S THE SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THAT BUILDING. THAT'S A BIG ENOUGH. IT'S IT'S BIG IT'S BIG. AH OUR ISSUE IS. LIKE I WAS EXPLAINING TO COUNCIL MEMBER HAYES.

WE'RE TRYING TO FIT AS MANY KIDS AS WE CAN INTO FIVE DAYS. AND SO WE HAVE WE END UP HAVING 1000 2000 KIDS THERE. ONE TIME WE FEEL LIKE WE COULD. WE COULD DO JUST AS MUCH GOOD WITH A SMALLER VENUE THAT WAS OPEN YEAR ROUND. IF THAT MAKES ANY SENSE BRING THEM IN ONE BUS AT A TIME RATHER THAN 1000 2000. THE IDEA THE SQUARE FOOTAGE. WELL THE. FOR THE BUILDING. OK. WELL WHAT WE WERE LOOKING AT IN FRISCO SAFETY TOWN THEY HAVE TWO ACRES OF LAND. THEY HAVE SEVERAL. ALL OF THE BUILDINGS ARE BUILT FIVE EIGHTH SCALE SO THEY'RE BRICK AND MORTAR WORKING BUILDINGS WITH HEAT AND AIR. YOU CAN GO IN AND OUT OF THEM. AND THE SPONSORS SPONSOR THOSE BUILDINGS. SO YOU HAVE A WAL-MART AND APPLEBEE'S A BANK AND THE KIDS CAN GO IN AND OUT OF THOSE BUILDINGS AND LEARN DIFFERENT LESSONS WITHIN EACH OF THOSE BUILDINGS PLUS THERE WOULD BE A MUSEUM AND INTERACTIVE THINGS LIKE THAT. I DON'T KNOW THEY MIGHT NOT WANT TO GIVE YOU ONE BUILDING WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT THAT. OK JUST A COUPLE COMMENTS. YES. LEICESTER CITY MANAGER. SO REALLY MORE ANYTHING ELSE THEY WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW SOME OF THE COOL STUFF WE'RE ABLE TO DO THIS SUMMER.

AND ALSO LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT WE WANT TO MAKE IT BIGGER. WE WANT TO MAKE IT BETTER. WE WANT TO MAKE IT BETTER ABLE TO SERVE MORE KIDS AND HAVE PEOPLE BE SAFER IN THE PANHANDLE AND ALL AREAS THAT WE SERVE. SO BARRING ANY OBJECTION AND I DON'T SEE ANY I WOULDN'T EXPECT ANY FROM FROM FROM THIS COUNCIL WHAT THEY'RE GONNA DO NOW IS GO OUT AND RAISE FUNDS. THEY'RE GONNA GO TO STATE AND FEDERAL AND PRIVATE SOURCES OF MONEY AND THERE'S SOME THERE FOR IT FROM ALL OF THOSE DIFFERENT SOURCES AND THEY'RE GOING TO TRY AND BRING IN THE FUNDS NECESSARY TO TO TO ACQUIRE AND BUILD WHAT WE WANT AND ALSO TO BE ABLE TO OPERATE IT. YOU KNOW THERE'S A LOT OF OF OF OURS FROM ALL THESE DIFFERENT ENTITIES BUT IT'S NOT REALLY TAKING AWAY FROM THE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY OR THE PROTECTION THEY PROVIDE THEIR COMMUNITIES. THERE'S ALSO SOME EQUIPMENT THAT'S USED BUT WE WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE HAVE DEDICATED

[00:30:03]

EQUIPMENT JUST FOR THIS PURPOSE. WE'VE GOT AN OLD FIRE TRUCK THAT WE'RE GONNA APPLY TO THAT PURPOSE CLEAN IT UP KEEP IT NICE AND SANITIZE SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT YOU KNOW ANY OF THE THINGS THAT THAT FIREFIGHTERS DO WITHIN THE DAY TO DAY LIVES WITH KIDS. SO THEY'RE GONNA GO OUT THEY'RE GOING TO SEEK ALL THIS.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO OUT AND AGGRESSIVELY SEEK THE FUNDS AND SEEK THE RESOURCES AND MAKE IT HAPPEN. AND THIS IS ALSO GONNA HELP US DO WHAT WE NEED TO BE DOING IN OUR REGION. WE ARE WE ARE BLESSED TO BE A CITY OF THE SIZE AND RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE. WE ARE IN AN AREA THAT DOESN'T HAVE A LOT OF POPULATION CENTERS SO WE ARE A LEADER IN OUR 26 COUNTY AREA. BUT BEYOND. YOU SEE PEOPLE COMING FROM NEW MEXICO FROM OKLAHOMA. WE'RE A REGIONAL LEADER AND THIS WILL ENABLE US TO CONTINUE TO DO THAT AND IT DOESN'T MEAN THAT ANY OTHER COMMUNITIES OR PARTNERS AREN'T ABLE TO DO THE THINGS THAT THEY NEED TO DO. BUT THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WE'RE UNIQUELY QUALIFIED TO DO BECAUSE OF OUR POPULATION BECAUSE OF THE SIZE OF OUR DEPARTMENT THAT CAN BENEFIT AND BLESS THE REST OF OUR COMMUNITY. AND THEN THAT'S IN KEEPING WITH OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO THE WHERE APPROPRIATE LEADER. HOW MUCH MONEY DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING TO TRY TO ASK FOR. GATHER UP. OUR GOAL IS LARGELY DEPENDS ON WHETHER OR NOT WE CAN FIND CITY OWNED LAND NEXT TO A FIRE STATION. BUT THE APPROXIMATE COST THAT WE'VE FOUND FROM THE FRISCO FIRE SAFETY TOLD US ABOUT 5 MILLION 5 MILLION. YES. OK. SO THAT'S A GREAT TARGET AND YOU WOULD HAVE A DEDICATED PERMANENT BUILDING SEPARATE AND APART FROM A CURRENT FIRE STATION GROUP. YES. KIND OF THE IDEA. I MEAN YOU'RE JUST GETTING STARTED. THINGS ARE GOING TO CHANGE AS YOU MOVE ALONG. BUT YES I I JUST WANT TO SAY MR. CITY MANAGER I APPRECIATE YOUR LEADERSHIP IN CREATING A CULTURE AMONG CITY STAFF WHERE CHIEF GREENLEE COULD ENCOURAGE HIS GUYS WITH AN IDEA LIKE THIS AND GUYS I WANT TO SAY THANK YOU I WAS ABLE TO GO ON THE FIRST DAY BACK IN THE SPRING AND I LEFT THERE AMAZED AT THE NUMBER OF KIDS THAT WERE GOING THROUGH THAT THE VOLUME YOU WERE HANDLING. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED BY THAT. AND SO I LOVE THE THINKING. I LOVE THE FACT THAT YOU'RE THINKING NEW IDEAS HEY YEAH WE'VE ALWAYS DONE IT LIKE THIS BUT IS THERE A BETTER WAY. THAT'S ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT THINGS I THINK THAT YOU GUYS DO AS CITY STAFF IS RECOGNIZING WE'VE ALWAYS DONE IT THIS WAY. BUT STOPPING AND ASKING YOURSELF TRYING TO CREATE THE SPACE TO ASK THAT QUESTION IS THERE A BETTER WAY. AND THEN ULTIMATELY WHEN YOU SAY YEAH THERE'S A BETTER WAY THEN YOU HAVE TO PUT YOUR BOOTS ON BECAUSE THERE'S A LOT OF WORK TO DO RIGHT. I MEAN THERE'S NO THERE'S NO PLAN THERE'S NO STRUCTURE. YOU'VE GOT TO SELL THIS IDEA UP THE CHAIN AND DOWN THE CHAIN. AND THEN YOU GO OUT IN THE COMMUNITY TO ALL THESE OTHER AFFILIATES AND YOU'RE SELLING IT TO THEM. THAT'S A WHOLE LOT OF WORK. SO I WANT TO AFFIRM AND I CAN TELL THE COUNCIL FEELS THE SAME WAY WE WANT TO AFFIRM NEW IDEAS NEW THINKING DOING THE WORK BEHIND THAT TO THE POINT THAT IT'S SO SUCCESSFUL THAT YOU NOW HAVE MORE WORK TO DO. AND YOU'RE HERE SAYING WE'RE WILLING TO DO IT FOR THE BENEFIT OF NOT JUST OUR CITY I AGREE WITH WHAT THE CITY MANAGER SAID ABOUT WE ARE LEADERS NOT JUST IN THE 26 COUNTIES BUT WE'RE LEADERS IN THE TRI STATE AREA. SO WHAT. AS WE GO SO GOES OUR AREA AND I COULDN'T HELP IT AS I WAS WATCHING THE MOVIE JUST THINKING ABOUT I'M LOOKING AT THE FACES OF A LOT OF FUTURE FIRST RESPONDERS RIGHT THERE AND YOU ARE YOU ARE RECRUITING THEM AND THEY ARE DETERMINING IN THIS MOMENT THIS WORK IS INTERESTING. THIS WORK IS VALUABLE AND I WOULD BE A VALUABLE CONTRIBUTOR TO OUR COMMUNITY IF I WOULD LEARN MORE ABOUT THIS WORK. AND AND I AS A CITIZEN GREATLY APPRECIATE THAT JOLLA SAYING THAT NO ONE ABOUT WHAT YOU DO EVERY DAY YOU DO IT WITH EXCELLENCE. BUT NUMBER TWO YOU'RE HELPING TO RECRUIT YOU'RE MAKING IT EASIER FOR THE CITY COUNCIL OF 2040 TO FILL THE JOBS BECAUSE IT'S HARD TO FILL THOSE JOBS. IT'S A BIG COMMITMENT. SO I JUST WANTED TO I WANT TO SAY YES IT'S A GREAT IDEA. I THINK YOU'RE GONNA HAVE OUR SUPPORT. I WANT TO SEE IT EVOLVE INTO A RECRUITING TOOL ALSO. SO MAYBE AN OLDER COMPONENT 9TH 10TH 11TH GRADERS MAYBE EVEN SIXTH SEVENTH GRADERS SHOWING UP AS POTENTIAL JOB CORPS PEOPLE. AND I DIDN'T SEE POISON CONTROL ON THERE AND SO I'M JUST THINKING THERE'S SOMEBODY WHO I DIDN'T. VERY INTERESTING FIELD TRIP THERE WITH A GROUP OF SCHOOL KIDS ONE TIME AND THEY MIGHT MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO YOUR ALREADY VERY STRONG PARTNERS OF COURSE. ANYTHING ELSE. GREAT JOB. I KNOW THIS TOOK A LOT LONGER THAN Y'ALL THOUGHT BUT THAT'S SOMETIMES THAT'S A BAD SIGN TODAY. THAT'S A REALLY GOOD SIGN. WE'RE WE'RE VERY IMPRESSED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. GREENLEE THANK YOU OK WE ARE GOING TO BE HERE A LONG TIME. WE SPEND 30 MINUTES ON EVERY ITEM. ALL

[C. Update on Golf Operations and Golf Task Force Recommendations; and]

[00:35:06]

RIGHT. OUT OF ONE SEE THIS NEXT ITEM IS REALLY IMPORTANT AND COULD TAKE A MINUTE TO UPDATE ON GOLF OPERATIONS MR. SEGER MANAGER WE'LL GET PARKS DIRECTOR MICHAEL ISSUE. AND WE ALSO HAVE A NUMBER OF GOLFERS KNOWN SYSTEM PARKS DIRECTOR WITH US. SO MICHAEL TAKE IT AWAY. ABSOLUTELY MARY. COUNSEL MY NAME IS MICHAEL CASHEW I'M THE DIRECTOR OF PARKS AND RECREATION. THE ITEM TODAY IS AN UPDATE ON GOLF OPERATIONS AND GOLF TASK FORCE RECOMMENDATIONS. BEFORE WE GET INTO THE GOLF TASK FORCE RECOMMENDATIONS WHAT I'D LIKE TO WALK THROUGH IS A LITTLE BIT MORE OF THE HISTORICAL CONTEXT AND THEN I'LL TURN IT OVER TO GEORGE PERRIELLO ALTHOUGH OUR GM OF GOLF OPERATIONS TO WALK THROUGH THE TASK FORCE. SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE'VE SEEN AS WE'VE LOOKED AT THE HISTORICAL TRENDS IS OVER THE LAST 10 YEARS THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS OF GOLF IN AMARILLO HAVE BEEN FAIRLY CONSISTENT. I THINK WHERE WE'RE WE'RE STRUGGLING WITH IS THAT THE BALANCING OF QUALITY OF LIFE AND COST RECOVERY. OUR GOAL AS A DEPARTMENT IS TO CONTINUE TO FIND WAYS TO DO IT MORE EFFECTIVELY AND EFFICIENTLY INCREASING REVENUE AND DECREASING COST. SO THAT'S ONE OF OUR OBJECTIVES AND THAT'S ONE OF THE REASONS THAT THE GOLF TASK FORCE WAS FORMED IN 2018. WE ALSO SAW THE ANNUAL GOLF PASS GO UP IN PRICE AND AS A RESULT WE SAW A FAIRLY SIGNIFICANT DECLINE IN THOSE ROUNDS OF GOLF. THESE NEXT CHARTS I ACTUALLY PRINTED OFF A LITTLE BIT BIGGER SO YOU HAVE MORE ON THE DICE. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS RELATED TO IT. BUT THE FIRST CHART IS REALLY TOTAL ROUNDS OF GOLF AT EVERY ELO SINCE 1995. AND WHILE WE'VE BROKEN IT OUT IS BY GOLF COURSE. SO YOU CAN SEE THE LIGHT BLUE AT THE BOTTOM IS ROSS THE DARKER BLUE IS COMANCHE TASK GOES IS KIND OF THAT PINK SALMON COLOR IN THE MIDDLE. THE LIGHT GREEN IS LA PALOMA THE DARKER GREEN IS AMARILLO COUNTRY CLUB AND THEN THE RED IS PALETTA CREEK. AND SO AS WE KIND OF WALK LEFT TO RIGHT ONE OF THE THINGS YOU'LL SEE IS IN NINETEEN NINETY NINE ARROWHEAD OPEN ADDING 18 ADDITIONAL HOLES OF GOLF AND LA PALOMA OPEN SO YOU CAN SEE THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS AND DARK BLUE GO UP SLIGHTLY AND WE START TO SEE THE LIGHT GREEN APPEAR ON THE CHART IN 2002 AND 2003 WE SAW WILD HORSE CLOSED FOR RENOVATION AND SO YOU SEE THE LIGHT BLUE AT THE BOTTOM THOSE ROUNDS DECREASED BECAUSE THAT FACILITY WAS PARTIALLY CLOSED IN 2010 THE CITY OF CANYON TOOK OVER CALDERA CREEK AND SO YOU SEE THE RED EMERGE IN 2010 AND THEN IN 2011 AND 12 MUSTANG WAS CLOSED FOR INNOVATION SO AGAIN YOU SEE THE LIGHT BLUE PORTION DROP DURING THOSE YEARS AND THEN IN 2012 THE DARK GREEN DISAPPEARS FOR 2012 AND 13 WHILE AMARILLO COUNTRY CLUB WAS DOING THEIR RENOVATIONS. AND THEN IN 2018 YOU SEE WHERE THE CITY COUNCIL APPROVED THE GOLF FEE INCREASE AND THE ROUND DECREASE IN THE CITY OF AMARILLO. LOOKING AT 10 YEARS OR THAT I GUESS WOULD BE THE NINE YEARS SINCE 2010 THE AVERAGE NUMBER OF ROUNDS FOR THE CITY PORTION COMES OUT TO EIGHTY SEVEN THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY. THE NEXT CHART BREAKS IT DOWN MORE IN TERMS OF WHAT THE CITY OWNS AND WHAT OTHER WHAT THE OTHER SHARE OF GOLF MAKES UP. SO THE GREEN IS THE CITY'S SHARE OF GOLF. THE GREY IS OTHER GOLF COURSES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY AND UP ALONG THE TOP YOU'LL SEE FIVE. PIE CHARTS THE TWO ON THE LEFT AND THE TWO ON THE RIGHT ARE THE EXACT SAME. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THE ONE ON THE FAR LEFT AND THE FAR RIGHT HAVE A LITTLE BIT MORE DETAIL IN TERMS OF BREAKOUT. SO IF YOU LOOK AT THE THREE IN THE MIDDLE YOU'LL SEE NINETEEN NINETY EIGHT 2008 AND 2018 AND YOU CAN SEE THE PERCENTAGE SHIFT FROM CITY OWNED AND MORE DRASTICALLY IN ABOUT 2010 REPELLED ARROW CREEK CAME ON IT WENT FROM THE CITY HAVING THE MAJORITY OF ROUNDS TO NOW SWITCHING TO WHERE THE OUTSIDE ENTITIES HAD MORE ROUNDS OF GOLF THAN THE CITY. IN NINETEEN NINETY EIGHT WE HAD APPROXIMATELY ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY FIVE THOUSAND ROUNDS AS A CITY 66 PERCENT OF THOSE WERE WITHIN THE CITY COURSE THE MUNICIPAL COURSES IF YOU LOOK AT THE CHART ON THE FAR RIGHT THE 2018 PERCENTAGE THAT COMES OUT TO ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY ONE THOUSAND ROUNDS. SO THAT'S DOWN FROM ONE EIGHTY FIVE TOTAL IN OUR SHARE OF THAT COMES OUT TO ABOUT 45 PERCENT. SO THAT NUMBER OF ROUNDS WENT DOWN ABOUT TWENTY TWENTY FOUR THOUSAND AND OUR SHARE WENT FROM SIXTY SIX TO FORTY FIVE. ONE OF THE INTERESTING THINGS IS IF YOU LOOK AT ABOUT THE LAST 10 YEARS THE OVERALL NUMBER OF ROUNDS IN AMARILLO WAS ABOUT ONE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY FIVE THOUSAND ROUNDS A YEAR. WE THINK THAT IS REALLY THE CAP OR THE CAPACITY CURRENTLY WITHIN GOLF. YOU CAN SEE PRIOR TO THAT THERE WERE SOME DIPS IN SOME SOME PEAKS BUT REALLY OVER THE LAST ABOUT 10 YEARS IT'S BEEN FAIRLY CONSISTENT

[00:40:01]

IN TERMS OF THE TOTAL NUMBER OF ROUNDS. BUT WHEN WE SAY CAP AND CAPACITY WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS THAT ALL THESE COURSES TOGETHER CAN HANDLE BECAUSE THEY CAN HANDLE CRACKED A LOT MORE THAN WHAT'S BEING PLAYED THAT'S JUST SHOWING US THAT THE CEILING ON THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS THAT ARE ACTUALLY BEING PLAYED THAT WE CAN EXPECT TO BE PLAYED EXPECTED NUMBER OF ROUNDS IS PROBABLY A BETTER WAY OF STATING THAT. AND SO YOU CAN SEE LAST YEAR THE NUMBER OF CITY ROUNDS WENT DOWN APPROXIMATELY TWELVE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FIVE ROUNDS. SO A LOT OF THE ROUNDS THAT LOST LAST YEAR WERE NOT. OUTSIDE COURSES IT WAS REALLY AFFECTING THOSE MUNICIPAL COURSES AND WE THINK THAT WAS DUE TO THE ANNUAL PASS PLAY. YEAH THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF GREEN ROUNDS PLAYED STAYED CONSTANT. THE DECLINE WAS IN PAST PLAY AND ACTUALLY REVENUE WENT UP AND OUR SUBSIDY WENT DOWN. SO WE MOVED ALL THE NUMBERS IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION EXCEPT FOR THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS PLAYED RIGHT. SO THE NEXT CHART SHOWS THAT TRENDS FROM 2008 TO TWO THOUSAND SIXTEEN THAT THE CHART AT THE TOP WHICH IS THE ORANGE IS THE ANNUAL SUBSIDY AND YOU CAN SEE WE'VE GOT A RED LINE WHICH HAS WHAT THAT ACTUAL AVERAGE IS OVER THAT PERIOD. THE BLUE IS THE AMOUNT OF REVENUE GENERATED BY GOLF. AND THEN YOU'VE GOT THE PIE CHARTS BELOW SO YOU CAN SEE THE BALANCE OF SUBSIDY VERSUS REVENUE. WHAT WAS BEING BROUGHT IN VERSUS WHAT WAS BEING SUBSIDIZED AND THEN AT THE BOTTOM IS THE OVERALL EXPENDITURES FOR THE DEPARTMENT. SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU'LL SEE IS THE OVERALL AVERAGE OF PIE CHARTS COMES OUT TO FORTY NINE POINT THREE PERCENT SUBSIDY OVER THAT TIME PERIOD. AND THAT WAS PRIOR TO THE CITY TAKING FULL OWNERSHIP OF GOLF OPERATIONS. WHEN WE JUMP TO THE NEXT SLIDE WE SHOW WHAT THOSE CHANGES LOOK LIKE AFTER THE CITY TOOK FULL OPERATIONS OF GOLF. WE SEE THAT THE SUBSIDY WENT FROM THE ONE POINT FIVE NINE TO ONE JUST OVER ONE POINT SIX WHICH WAS AN INCREASE OF JUST OVER SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS. WE ALSO SAW A SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN REVENUE SO THAT REVENUE WENT UP ONE POINT THREE 9 MILLION DOLLARS. AND SO AS A RESULT YOU LOOK AT THOSE PIE CHARTS UNDERNEATH AND YOU CAN SEE THAT THE REVENUE PORTION OF IT TAKES UP A LARGER PERCENTAGE. AND SO OVER THOSE THREE YEARS AND THAT INCLUDES THE CURRENT FISCAL YEAR THAT WE'RE IN WE'RE ESTIMATING THIRTY FIVE POINT FOUR PERCENT OF THAT WOULD BE SUBSIDY VERSUS REVENUE WHEREAS BEFORE IT WAS 49 PERCENT AND THE 2018 NUMBERS HAVE STILL BEEN UNAUDITED SO THEY'RE SUBJECT TO A LITTLE BIT OF CHANGE. BUT OVERALL THE SUBSIDY WENT UP ABOUT 60000 REVENUE WENT UP ONE POINT THIRTY NINE MILLION. AND THEN THE LAST SLIDE IS REALLY LOOKING TO THE FUTURE AND WE'VE IDENTIFIED SOME POTENTIAL STAFFING AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES THAT WOULD BE REALIZED DURING THE OFF SEASON OF GOLF MORE OF THE WINTER SEASON. AND SO THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WILL BE BRINGING FORWARD AS A PART OF THE BUDGET PROCESS THIS YEAR. AND YOU CAN SEE THAT WE ESTIMATE THAT THAT SUBSIDY WOULD DROP FROM WHERE IT CURRENTLY IS TO ABOUT 26 PERCENT. AND SO THAT'S SOMETHING THAT WE WILL BE BRINGING FORWARD TO COUNCIL AS A PART OF THE BUDGET PROCESS. AND THEN THIS SLIDE IS JUST AN OVERALL. KIND OF LAY OF OF WHERE WE'VE BEEN OVER SINCE 1995. AND WITH THAT MICHAEL MENTIONED THE OPERATIONAL ENHANCEMENTS THAT WE MIGHT MAKE REALLY OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES THAT WE MIGHT MAKE. WE WON'T REALLY FULLY REALIZE THE BENEFITS OF ANY OF THOSE MOVES UNTIL THE 2021 SEASON BECAUSE WE'LL BE PHASING THAT IN OVER THE COURSE OF THIS NEXT YEAR. SO JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WHILE WE'VE GOT SOME GOOD PLANS THAT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE THERE WE WON'T REALLY FULLY REALIZED THE BENEFITS FINANCIALLY UNTIL 2021. RIGHT. I THINK YOU'RE ADDRESSING THE QUESTION THAT I'M HAVING ON THIS ONE. SO WHEN WE'RE LOOKING AT OUR 2019 NUMBERS AND AS WE'RE GOING INTO THE 2020 YEAR PROJECTIONS AND YOU'RE YOU'RE PROJECTING IT TO COME DOWN TO 26 PERCENT. CORRECT.

DEFINE FOR ME AGAIN WHAT YOU'RE BASING THAT ON. IS IT TRENDS. IS IT IMPLEMENT A PROJECTING GUESSTIMATES FROM CHANGES WE'RE GOING TO BE HEARING SUGGESTED FROM THE TASK FORCE. THESE ARE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES THAT HAVE BEEN IDENTIFIED BY STAFF. SO AS WE'VE LOOKED AT OUR OPERATIONS WE'VE LOOKED AT WAYS TO REDUCE THE COSTS ESPECIALLY IN OUR OFF PEAK MONTHS. SO REALLY DURING THE WINTER SEASON. AND THAT'S WHERE WE WERE LOOKING AT THOSE OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES WHETHER IT'S STAFFING EFFICIENCIES OR OTHER OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCIES THAT INCLUDE IN SOME CASES REDUCING STAFFING IN MOST CASES THAT WILL INCLUDE GOING TO SEASONAL OR PART TIME INSTEAD OF FULL TIME PEOPLE. IT'LL INCLUDE CROSS TRAINING STAFF MEMBERS SO THAT EVERYBODY IS DOING EVERYTHING. YOU KNOW THERE'S THERE'S THERE'S A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT WE CAN DO TO BE MORE EFFICIENT WITH OUR PERSONNEL AND WITH THE RESOURCES THAT WE HAVE OUT OF THE GOLF COURSES. WE ALSO HAVE TO EVALUATE A LEVEL OF SERVICE.

[00:45:03]

I MEAN YOU KNOW ARE WE GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAVE THREE COURSES AND TWO COURSES IN THE TOP 10 THREE COURSES IN THE TOP 15 AND FOUR COURSES IN THE TOP 50 STATEWIDE. WELL MAYBE FOUR COURSES AND THEN JUST GIVE US. TOP 25 AND WE HAVE THREE. YEAH WE'VE WE WE ARE AT THE FRONT END OF THAT LIST EVERY SINGLE YEAR SO WE HAVE TO EVALUATE HOW MUCH MONEY WE'RE PUTTING INTO GOLF AND ARE WE PROVIDING A LEVEL OF GOLF THAT THAT IT EXCEEDS OUR REVENUE AND WHAT WE CAN JUSTIFY SPENDING ON IT. SO WE MAY WANT TO PROVIDE THE SAME AMOUNT OF GOLF BUT REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF MONEY WE SPEND ON IT SO THAT IT. BALANCES OUT WITHOUT HAVING TO CLOSE ANY COURSES WHAT IS OUR TARGET LONG TERM.

WHAT IS OUR COST RECOVERY AS SUBSIDY PERCENTAGE MAX THAT WE'RE TRYING TO TARGET. I THINK THE CHALLENGE BECOMES WE'RE ABOUT AS LEAN AS WE CAN GET WITH THE PROPOSED CHANGES THAT WE'LL BE BRINGING FORWARD. OTHER THAN THAT THERE'S REALLY THERE'S VERY LIMITED EFFICIENCIES THAT WE WOULD SEE MOVING FORWARD BEYOND THAT POINT. SO THAT'S KIND OF ABOUT AS MUCH AS WE CAN LEAN UP OUR OPERATION AND THAT'S EVERYTHING FROM REDUCING STAFF TO SCALING BACK AND CROSS TRAINING. THAT'S REALLY KIND OF THE BENCHMARK WE HAD ORIGINALLY BEEN TARGETING AROUND SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS AS OUR TARGET SUBSIDY AMOUNT. RIGHT NOW WE'RE PROJECTING IT AT OUR LEANEST IN 2020 REALLY THIS IS GOING TO BE MORE SOMETHING WE WON'T SEE UNTIL 2021 GETTING THAT SUBSIDY DOWN TO ABOUT ONE POINT ONE MILLION. SO WE'RE GONNA NEED ASSISTANCE FROM OUR GOLFING COMMUNITY INCREASING THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS INCREASING THE MARKET SHARE THAT CITY COURSES ARE ABLE TO COMMAND. AND THAT'S GONNA BE A CHALLENGE BECAUSE OTHER COURSES ARE PROVIDING A COMPETITIVE PRODUCT AS WELL AND WORKING WITH OUR COMMUNITY TO JUST INCREASE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE THAT ARE PLAYING GOLF. THE WHOLE GOAL IS TO HIS TO MAINTAIN THE INVESTMENT WE'VE MADE IN GOLF NOT REDUCE THE AMOUNT OF GOLF THAT WE PROVIDE BUT ALSO RECOGNIZE THAT WE CAN ONLY REASONABLY PUT A CERTAIN LEVEL OF SUBSIDY INTO THE GOLF FUNCTION UNDERSTANDING THAT WE WERE OVER TWO MILLION DOLLARS JUST A FEW YEARS AGO AND BEING ABLE TO GET THAT SUBSIDY REALISTICALLY DOWN TO AROUND A MILLION DOLLARS IS A BIG MOVE BUT IT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH. SO ONE OF THE THINGS YOU'LL SEE STAFF OUR FOCUS HAS BEEN TRYING TO FIND THE MOST EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO RUN OUR GOLF COURSES GOLF TASK FORCE WAS REALLY THEY WERE CHARGED WITH LOOKING AT OPERATIONS BUT REALLY THEIR FOCUS WAS HOW DO WE FIGURE OUT HOW TO EXPAND AND RE-ENGAGE OUR COMMUNITY. WHEN YOU LOOK BACK AT THAT ONE CHART THE GREEN AND THE GRAY WHAT YOU SEE IS OUR SHARE OF THE ROUNDS HAVE GONE DOWN. OUR GOAL IS HOW DO WE START INCREASING THAT GREEN PORTION OF IT TO WHERE WE CAN RECAPTURE SOME OF THOSE ROUNDS THAT OVER THE YEARS WE'VE LOST TO THOSE OTHER COURSES AND WE'VE COME UP WITH SOME WAYS THAT WE THINK WE'LL START TO BRING SOME OF THE GOLFERS BACK AND SOME OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE GOLF TASK FORCE. SO WHAT I'LL DO IS I'LL TURN IT OVER TO GEORGE ALTHOUGH GEM OF GOLF OPERATIONS AND HE'LL WALK THROUGH KIND OF THE TASK FORCE AND SOME OF THEIR RECOMMENDATIONS. MICHAEL BEFORE YOU LEAVE I WANT TO MAKE A COMMENT SOMETHING THAT I'VE HEARD PEOPLE SAY JUST IN THE GROCERY STORE WHEREVER THEY STOP US TO TALK ABOUT THIS ISSUE. I MEAN IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE TO A LOT OF PEOPLE IN OUR CITY IS THAT THE LEVEL OF PLAY DECREASED RELATED TO THE INCREASE OF GOLF FEES BACK IN 2017. AND SO I NUMBER ONE I WANT TO COMMEND YOU ON PUTTING THIS DATA TOGETHER. I KNOW THIS DIDN'T JUST HAPPEN YOU DIDN'T SNAP YOUR FINGERS AND IT WAS PUNCH A BUTTON IN THE REPORT SPIT IT OUT.

YOU'VE DONE A MASTERFUL JOB YOU AND YOUR TEAM OF PUTTING THIS DATA TOGETHER. I WOULD COMMEND YOU MR. CITY MANAGER FOR THAT BECAUSE WE WE DON'T WANT TO MAKE DECISIONS OR GIVE YOU GUYS GUIDANCE ON GUESSING WE WANT TO DO IT ON DATA. AND SO THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL WAY OF SUMMARIZING A LOT OF DATA SO THAT WE CAN GIVE DIRECTION ON THAT. ONE OF THE THINGS THE DATA IS SHOWING ME IS THAT YES PLAY CITY COURSES WENT DOWN AS A RESULT OF INCREASING THOSE FEES. HOWEVER IT WAS ALREADY TRENDING DOWN FOR THE PREVIOUS FOUR YEARS. AND WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE 23 YEAR TREND IT WAS IT WAS TRENDING DOWN. SO YES WE HAD DECREASED PLAY THE YEAR THAT THOSE COSTS WENT UP BUT THE TREND OVER A VERY LONG PERIOD OF TIME WAS THAT PLAY WAS GOING DOWN THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS AT OUR CITY COURSES WAS GOING DOWN. AND I THINK THAT'S A VERY IMPORTANT DATA PIECE FOR US TO BE AWARE OF. AND I'M VERY GRATEFUL THAT YOU GUYS CAN SEE THAT THROUGH THE INFORMATION AND YOU'VE DONE A GREAT JOB OF PUTTING THAT INFORMATION IN A VISUAL FORMAT SO WE CAN EASILY SEE IT ALSO. AND I ASSUME THAT IF ANY CITIZEN

[00:50:02]

WANTED A COPY OF THESE REPORTS THEY COULD GET. HOW WERE THEY ABLE TO GET THOSE. JUST CALL THE CITY SECRETARY OR WE WILL MAKE THOSE AVAILABLE ON OUR ON OUR CITY WEB SITE. WE'LL WORK WITH JORDAN AND WE HAVEN'T TALKED ABOUT THIS BUT WE'LL MAKE THIS AVAILABLE AND EASY TO FIND ON THE CITY'S WEB SITE. I THINK ANOTHER THING THAT'S ALONG LINES WHAT YOU'RE SAYING MAYOR ON THAT GREEN AND BLACK PAGE GREENING GREEN AND GRAY PAGE AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE OVERALL NUMBER OF ROUNDS ARE GOING DOWN NOT JUST AT CITY COURSES BUT IN ALL THE COURSES IN THAT THAT ARE EXIST PRIVATE AND PUBLIC IN THE CITY AND REALLY IN TOTAL NUMBER OF ROUNDS PLAYED IS GOING DOWN. WE DOUBLED THE NUMBER OF NON CITY COURSES THAT EXIST INSIDE THE CITY AND ADDED ANOTHER CITY COURSE INSIDE THERE SO WE ADDED THREE GOLF COURSES WORTH OF HOLES. AT THE SAME TIME THAT THE NUMBER OF ROUNDS BEING PLAYED IS GOING DOWN YOU CAN SEE THIS WHEN YOU LOOK AT 98 A NUMBER OF ROUNDS PLAYED AT TESCO SO A COUNTRY CLUB IS 36 NOW OVER 36000. AND IN 2018 IT'S AT 20000. SO THAT'S ALMOST I MEAN THAT'S A SIGNIFICANT DROP OVER 40 PERCENT. SAME IS TRUE WITH EMERALD COUNTRY CLUB. NOT AS BIG OF A PERCENTAGE YOU KNOW GOING FROM 26000 20000 BUT STILL A 20 PERCENT DROP OVER A 20 PERCENT DROP. SO I THINK WE CAN SEE SOME SOME CHALLENGING TRENDS NOT JUST FOR THE CITY COURSES. I'M SURE IT'S A CHALLENGING BUSINESS MODEL THAT OUR PRIVATE PARTNER OUR PRIVATE PEERS AS WELL IN NATIONWIDE AND NATIONWIDE GOOD AFTERNOON I'M GEORGE PERRIELLO THE GM OF GOLF OPERATIONS AND MICHAEL WENT TO A BUNCH OF THE NUMBERS THAT WE'VE YOU KNOW LOOKED AT AND OVER THE LAST TWO AND A HALF THREE YEARS AND WE GET A PRETTY GOOD PICTURE WHERE GOLF IS BUT KIND OF MOVING FORWARD. YOU KNOW WE WE CHALLENGED OURSELVES AS A STAFF AND CITY MANAGER WANTED A TASK FORCE PUT IN PLACE AND SO WE GATHERED YOU KNOW TWELVE PEOPLE THAT HAD A CROSS-SECTION OF GOLF KNOWLEDGE. SOME DID IT A COUPLE OF THEM DIDN'T. SO THEY WERE KIND OUTSIDERS AND WE KIND OF BASICALLY BUST DOWN THE WALLS AND SAID THIS IS WHERE WE'RE AT. HOW DO WE MAKE GOLF BETTER AND HOW DO WE MOVE FORWARD. AND YOU KNOW TO ANSWER SOME OF THE QUESTIONS ABOUT WHERE WE'RE AT AND WHAT OUR GOALS ARE WE'RE MAKING SOME INTERNAL CHANGES FROM FROM A STAFFING AND SOME FROM OUR EXPENSE SIDE OF IT. AND EVEN IN THE GOLF COURSE AND THE LEVEL THAT THE GOLF COURSES ARE THAT WE HAVE VERY NICE GOLF COURSES. HOWEVER WE DO A LOT WITH VERY LITTLE. AND SO OUT OF OUR CITY BUDGET THERE'S NOT A THERE'S NOT A LOT OF THAT MONEY THAT IS DIRECTLY ATTRIBUTED TO THE MAINTENANCE OF THE GOLF COURSE. FORTUNATELY WE HAVE A GM OR ASSISTANT GM OF GOLF OPERATIONS JAMES DOE IS AS TALENTED AS THERE IS KEEPING THESE GOLF COURSES IN GREAT SHAPE. SO WHEN YOU COMPARE OUR RESOURCES WITH WITH FOUR GOLF COURSES VERSUS SOME OTHER PLACES THAT HAVE ONE GOLF COURSE OR TWO WE'RE DOING THE SAME ON FOUR GOLF COURSES AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DO WITH ONE GOLF COURSE. SO WE'RE I'M VERY PROUD OF THAT. THE QUALITY OF THE GOLF COURSES AND IT'S ALWAYS SOMETHING WE NEED TO LOOK AT AND WHERE WE NEED TO BE. BUT THE OTHER QUESTION IS IS WHERE WE'RE GOING FROM OUR ONE POINT ONE. AND I'LL THINK A LOT OF THAT IS MOVING FORWARD BECAUSE THE EXPENSE SIDE LIKE MICHAEL SAID WE'RE PRETTY CAPPED NOW THE PLACE WE HAVE. SOME ROOM TO MAYBE IMPROVE IS ENGAGE IN OUR GOLFERS GETTING GETTING PLAY BACK UP ANYTIME YOU HAVE PEOPLE COME THROUGH YOUR DOORS AND BUSINESS YOU TEND TO MAKE MORE MONEY AND THAT'S KIND OF WHERE THE GOLF TASK FORCE WAS BREAK DOWN THE WALL SEE WE'RE OUT TO WHERE WE CAN GO AND YOU KNOW WE MAY I'M NOT GOING TO SAY EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT TWO YEARS AGO WHEN WE WENT REBID OUR PRICING STRUCTURE. HE CAME WITH SOME CHALLENGES. WE HAD SOME CHALLENGES WITH OUR CUSTOMERS AND WE LOST SOME PLAY. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT THE GREEN FEES AS GERARD SAID STAYED PRETTY FLAT. IT WAS JUST BASICALLY OUR PERMIT ROUNDS THAT DROPPED IN THE IDEAL WORLD WE WOULD HAVE HAD THOSE PRICES INCREASES AND KEPT OUR LEVEL OF PLAY AT THE SAME SPOT. AND THAT'S WHERE WE WOULD'VE RECOGNIZED A LOT MORE OF WHAT WE WERE TRYING TO DO. THE BAD NEWS IS OUR REVENUE WENT UP A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE WE WENT UP. BUT OUR PLAY WENT DOWN AND THAT'S WHAT I WAS HOPING WE COULD KEEP OUR PLAY UP. BUT IN ANY EVENT WE BASICALLY HAD THREE AREAS THAT THIS TASK FORCE CONCENTRATED ON ONE OF THEM WAS INCREASING OUR MARKETING EFFORTS. NOW I'VE BEEN AROUND THE GOLF COURSE IS A LONG TIME AND I'M GOING TO TELL YOU WE DID A LOUSY JOB AT THIS AND BECAUSE BASICALLY IF YOU WANTED TO PLAY GOLF AND AMARILLO YOU NEED TO GO TO ROSS OR GO TO COMANCHE. SO WE NEVER FELT LIKE WE NEEDED TO PUT A LOT OF MONEY OR OR TIME IF PEOPLE WANTED TO PLAY GOLF. THEY KNEW WHERE TO GO. WE DIDN'T HAVE A LOT OF COMPETITION EXCEPT FOR THE

[00:55:02]

PRIVATE CLUBS. SO WE DIDN'T DO A VERY GOOD JOB WITH THAT BUT WITH KRISTEN COMING ON BOARD AND WHAT WE'VE BEEN DOING OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF. YEAR OR SO SINCE SHE'S BEEN THERE THERE'S A LOT MORE ENGAGEMENT. THERE'S A LOT MORE LIKES A LOT MORE FOLLOWS. PEOPLE ARE ENGAGING. SO WHEN WE WHEN WE INCREASE THESE MARKETING EFFORTS WE'RE PUTTING OUR NAME OUT THERE NOT NECESSARILY TO THE GOLFER BUT TO MAYBE THE NON-TRADITIONAL GOLFER THAT MIGHT WANT TO TAKE UP THE GAME AND SOME OF THOSE THINGS THAT WHERE THAT THE TASK FORCE WANTED WAS IN OUR MARKETING EFFORTS WAS ONLINE TEE TIMES. I'M PROUD TO SAY WE WENT LIVE IN OCTOBER. YES IT HASN'T GONE WITHOUT SOME HICCUPS BUT WE'RE WORKING THROUGH THOSE. BUT YOU CAN GET A TEE TIME ONLINE AT OUR GOLF COURSES JUST BY GOING TO OUR PLAY GOLF AMARILLO WEB SITE. SO THAT'S GREAT.

AND THAT'S GONNA BE VERY VALUABLE MOVING FORWARD. BUT LITTLE THINGS LIKE EXPLORE THE FOUR WE HAD WE HAD THOSE TWO YEARS AGO WASN'T HUGELY SUCCESSFUL BUT WE DIDN'T REALLY MARKETED ALL THAT MUCH. AND WE'VE BROUGHT THAT BACK. BUT WHAT IT DOES IS IT ENGAGES OUR PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE COMMUNITY TO PLAY ALL OF OUR GOLF COURSES. WE CHANGED IT UP FROM OUR ORIGINAL EXPLORE THE FOUR. SO IT'S A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT FORMAT AND THEN WE PUT ESKIMO PRICING AND THESE ARE LITTLE THINGS THAT PEOPLE JUST DON'T KNOW. BUT THEY SHOULD BE VERY APPRECIATIVE. BUT ESKIMO PRICING IS BASICALLY A A DECEMBER JANUARY PROGRAM WHERE WE'RE NOT HAVING A LOT OF PLAY BUT IT NEVER MADE A LOT OF SENSE TO CHARGE THE SAME AMOUNT OF MONEY FOR OUR GOLF COURSES WHEN THEY'RE DORMANT OR FROZEN AND THEY'RE NOT AS IN GOOD A SHAPE AS THEY ARE IN JUNE AND JULY. AND WE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE GIVE US FLAK ABOUT WHY YOU CHARGE IN THE SAME AMOUNT. SO EVEN A FIVE DOLLAR DISCOUNT IS A LOT BUT IT'S AT A TIME OF THE YEAR THAT IT'S NOT COSTING US A LOT OF MONEY. THE SECOND DEAL WAS OF THE TASK FORCE WAS TO CREATE SOME NEW AUDIENCE. AND WHAT WE CAME UP WITH FOR THESE PEOPLE CAME UP WITH ALL OF US BASICALLY WAS UNHAPPY OUR PROGRAM AND THIS WAS TAKEN THE GOLF COURSE AT A TIME OF THE DAY THAT VERY LITTLE GOES ON. SO THAT'S AFTER OUR LEAGUE PLAY AT 5:00 THIS IS AT 6:00 IN THE EVENING. AND BASICALLY WHAT WE HAVE AT THAT TIME OF THE DAY IS WE MAY HAVE A FEW PEOPLE COME OUT AND HIT SOME GOLF BALLS BUT WE HAVE STAFF STAY AND THEY'RE WAITING FOR THE GOLFERS TO COME IN BECAUSE WE HAVE PUT UP THE GOLF CARTS AND GET THE RANGE PACKED AND GET READY FOR THE NEXT DAY AND REMEMBER WE'RE OPEN SEVEN DAYS A WEEK EXCEPT FOR THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS DAY. SO WE HAVE THE STAFF OUT THERE. SO WHAT WE DID WAS WE TRIED TO CREATE A PROGRAM TO POSSIBLY BRING PEOPLE THAT DON'T TYPICALLY PLAY GOLF OUT TO THE GOLF COURSE AT A TIME OF THE DAY THAT WE'RE NOT DOING A LOT OF BUSINESS SO IT'S NOT COSTING US ANYTHING SO ALMOST ANY KIND OF REVENUE THAT COMES IN AT THAT POINT IS A PLUS. AND IT ALSO MIGHT TURN A NON-TRADITIONAL GOLFER IN THE GOLFER. AND THAT'S THE ULTIMATE GOAL IS TURNING PEOPLE BACK INTO PLAYING GOLF. BY THE TIME WE GOT THIS ROLLED OUT. IT WAS BASICALLY SEPTEMBER IT'S A TIME OF YEAR THAT OUR GOLF COURSE WAS BASICALLY GONE OFF LINE. YOU GET INTO FOOTBALL SCHOOL THINGS HAPPEN AND WE'RE NOT JUST WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF AN OFF SEASON AND THAT'S OUR FIRST DIP.

BUT WE DID 574 THOSE ROUNDS IN SEPTEMBER. I WAS SHOCKED THAT WE HAD THAT MUCH AT THAT TIME OF THE YEAR OBVIOUSLY. OCTOBER NOVEMBER IT'S 153 OF THEM. BUT WE'RE NOW WE'RE GETTING INTO REALLY SKETCHY TIME OF THE YEAR BECAUSE IT GETS SO COLD SO FAST.

BUT WE'VE HAD 727 ROUNDS OF GOLF PLAYED ON A HAPPY HOUR SINCE WE BASICALLY IMPLEMENTED THIS SEPTEMBER 1ST. THIS COULD BE HUGE WHEN WE GET TO MARCH APRIL MAY AND JUNE AND WE GET INTO ALL THE SUMMER MONTHS. SO I'M REALLY EXCITED ABOUT SEE WHERE THE HAPPY HOUR GOES AND ENGAGING PEOPLE AND BRINGING THEM BACK AGAIN. THE TASK FORCE WE WANTED TO FIGURE OUT WAYS TO GET PEOPLE BACK PLAYING GOLF. THE THIRD WAS HOW DO WE ENGAGE OUR CORE CUSTOMER. AND THAT'S OUR PAST PEOPLE. OUR GREEN PHASE DIDN'T GET CHANGED ABOUT THE ROUND STAYED VERY FLAT ALTHOUGH WE WERE CHARGING EIGHT DOLLARS MORE ROUND THE COMANCHE AND FOUR MORE DOLLARS AT ROSS. WE DIDN'T LOSE HARDLY ANY GREEN FEE GUYS. MOST OF OUR ROUND COUNT WHICH IS SOME MONEY IS THOSE PERMANENT PLAYERS OUR MONEY. THAT'S WHERE OUR LOSS OF PLAY THAT 12 13000 ROUNDS WENT OUT THE DOOR. SO WHAT WE WANTED TO DO WAS JUST KIND OF LOOKING AT THE HISTORY OF WHERE WE'RE AT RIGHT NOW WE IMPLEMENTED TWO YEARS AGO THE MANY PATHS WHICH IS FOUR ROUNDS OF GOLF FOR FOUR OR 20 ROUNDS GOLF FOR 400 DOLLARS SO IT'S 20 ROUND 20 DOLLARS PER ROUND OF GOLF. THEN WE BASICALLY DOUBLED OUR PRICE OF OUR ANNUAL PERMITS. WE USED TO BE AT 930 WHERE 2000 WE'D NEVER HAD IT WITH GOLF CARTS BEFORE AND THEN WE HAD OUR SENIOR PASS WHICH WAS 62 AT THE TIME IT WAS 570 AND NOW IT'S A THOUSAND. SO WE BASICALLY DOUBLED IT. THE BAD NEWS IS WE WENT FROM 280 FOR THOSE

[01:00:04]

PEOPLE DOWN TO 79. SO THAT'S WHERE A LOT OF OUR CORE GOLFER WENT OUT THE DOOR.

YEAH. THEY WERE PLAYING GOLF AT A CHEAP RATE CHEAPER RATE BUT THESE PEOPLE AT STEELS RIGHT GOLF CARTS USE OUR CONCESSIONS USE OUR PRO SHOP USE OUR DRIVING RANGE AND IF THEY'RE NOT COMING THROUGH THE DOOR THEN IT'S REVENUE LEFT NOT NOT BEING ABLE TO CAPTURE THAT REVENUE. THE PROBLEM THAT OUR GOLFERS HAD WAS OUTLAY AND THE MONEY UPFRONT AND WE IDENTIFIED THAT. THROUGH THE GOLF TASK FORCE. AND IT'S BASICALLY I MEAN THE BEST EXAMPLE I CAN BASICALLY GIVE YOU IS OUR COMPETITORS CHARGED GOLF BY THE MONTH. WE WERE CHARGING FOR GOLF BY THE YEAR SO WE WEREN'T IN THE SAME BALLPARK OF MARKETING AS OUR COMPETITORS WERE. AND WHEN YOU START ASKING FOR 34 HUNDRED OR TWO THOUSAND UP FRONT THERE WAS BASICALLY NO RESISTANCE TO THAT. AND SO WITH THE GOLF TASK FORCE WE WANTED TO IMPLEMENT SOME CHANGES WE'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT CHANGING OUR PRICES ANY WE'RE JUST TALKING ABOUT HOW WE DO BUSINESS AND IT WOULD BE SIMILAR TO IF YOU AND YOUR WIFE OR HUSBAND WENT AND BOUGHT A CAR AND YOU YOU'RE TRYING TO PICK OUT A YOU KNOW A FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAR CAR AND THE DEALER TELLS YOU YOU NEED TO SCRATCH A CHECK FOR FIFTY THOUSAND AND YOU DRIVE HOME IN HIS CAR. NOT MANY PEOPLE CAN DO THAT BUT IF HE SAYS WE CAN GET YOU IN THAT CAR FOR FOUR HUNDRED SEVENTY FIVE DOLLARS A MONTH YOU LOOK AT YOUR WIFE OR HUSBAND AND YOU SAY WE CAN DO THAT AND YOU BUY THE CAR. THAT'S WHAT OUR COMPETITORS ARE DOING. THAT'S NOT WHAT WE WERE DOING. WE WERE ASKING FOR THE FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLAR CHECK UP FRONT SO WE IDENTIFIED THAT AS A PROBLEM. SO WHAT WE WANTED TO DO IS WE WANTED TO MOVE INTO WHAT WE CALL MONTHLY BILLING IN SOME OF THE IN SOME OF THIS IS BASICALLY IT'S THE SAME PRICE WHICH IS MAKING IT EASIER FOR OUR CUSTOMERS TO PAY FOR IT MAYBE A LITTLE BIT MORE WORK ON STAFF. WHO CARES. I DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT. WHAT I CARE ABOUT IS GETTING THESE PEOPLE ENGAGED AND GETTING THEM BACK TO THE GOLF COURSE. AND WE ALSO IDENTIFIED THAT WE HAD A COUPLE OF DEMOGRAPHICS THAT WE WERE MISSING. AND AND BASICALLY IT WAS KIND OF A TO STEER SENIOR STEP. WE BEFORE WE HAD THE ANNUAL AND THE SENIOR AT 65 AND OVER THE GOLF TASK FORCE IDENTIFIED THAT 50 TO 64 AS A GUY THAT MIGHT BE A SENIOR BUT HE'S STILL WORKING.

BUT HE DOES HAVE MAYBE A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME IN HIS LIFE TO PLAY A LITTLE BIT MORE GOLF BUT HE CAN'T GET OUT THERE ALL THE TIME LIKE A REAL RETIRED SENIOR CAN. AND THEN THE 80 AND OVERGAARD WHICH MADE PERFECT SENSE BECAUSE THOSE ARE THE GUYS THAT REALLY LEFT US. WE HAD A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT USED TO PLAY A LOT OF GOLF WELL SAY LIKE GOLF MAYBE TWO THREE TIMES A WEEK. THERE WERE 80 PLUS THAT BASICALLY WHEN WE WENT TO 1000 THOUSAND DOLLARS OR TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS THEY CONUS AND THEY DIDN'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE. THEY JUST QUIT PLAYING GOLF. AND SO WE WANTED TO TRY TO ENGAGE THOSE PEOPLE AND A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE THAT ARE 80 PLUS THEY'VE BEEN SUPPORTING OUR GOLF COURSES FOR 40 YEARS. WHY NOT GIVE THEM A BREAK. AND SO THAT'S WHERE SOME OF THESE IDEAS CAME FROM. THE ONE OTHER THING THAT CAME WAS BE A LITTLE BIT MORE ALL INCLUSIVE LIKE OUR CLUBS ARE. IN OTHER WORDS WE NEVER HAD YOU KNOW THESE GOLFERS CAN CHOOSE WHERE THEY WANT TO WHAT A WALKING OPTION AND A RIDING OPTION THEY CAN CHOOSE BETWEEN THAT THERE'S DIFFERENT PRICES FOR THAT. BUT EXCLUDING THE OLD TIMER WHICH VEDA AND OVER WE'VE INCLUDED OUR RANGE IN THERE.

OKAY. SO THAT'S MORE SIMILAR TO WHAT A CLUB WOULD DO. SO WE'VE BECOME A LITTLE LESS ALL A CARD LITTLE BIT MORE INCLUSIVE. AND SO THE THE TEST CYCLE WITH SOME OF OUR CORE GOLFERS RUNNING THIS BY THEM IT'S BEEN VERY VERY POSITIVE SO FAR AND THEY'RE EXCITED ABOUT HOW WE'RE GONNA MOVE INTO THE FUTURE WITH GOLF. THE NEXT SLIDE WE'VE GOT. JUST TO KIND OF SHOW YOU WHERE WE'RE AT. WE'RE ABOUT A TWENTY ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR AVERAGE COST. WE'RE MOVING IT TO 20 TO 80 SOME OF IT IS A LITTLE BIT OF AN INCREASE BUT SOME OF IT IS THAT DRIVING RANGE THAT WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT WE'RE INCLUDING. SO WE ARE GOING TO TRY TO CAPTURE A LITTLE BIT MORE MONEY PER PERSON. HOWEVER IT'S A LITTLE EASIER TO BUDGET AND PAY FOR IT BY DOING IT BY THE MONTH INSTEAD UPFRONT AND THEN JUST KIND OF MOVING FORWARD. WE'RE REALLY GOING TO PUSH THE MARKETING WE WANT OUR NAME OUT THERE WHETHER THEY'RE A GOLFER OR NOT. AND I THINK THAT'S WHERE WE FELT KIND OF FELL SHORT. WE'VE JUST BASICALLY CATERED TO THE GOLFERS BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE COMMUNITY. THERE'S A LOT OF GOOD THINGS THAT HAPPEN THAT ARE GOLF COURSES THAT THAT MAYBE NOT THE NON GOLFER REALIZES HOW MUCH OF A BENEFIT THOSE GOLF CART THOSE GOLF COURSES ARE AS FAR AS CHARITY FUNDRAISER FOOD BANK MONEY ALL THE CITY MONEY LOT OF MONEY RAISED DURING THAT.

THAT DOES BENEFIT OUR COMMUNITY EVEN THOUGH THEY MAY NOT EVER STEP FOOT ON THOSE GOLF COURSES. SO WE'RE GONNA CONTINUE TO MARKET PUT OUR NAME OUT THERE. WE'RE GONNA HAVE A GOLF OPEN HOUSE TO KIND OF EXPLAIN SOME OF THIS. I BELIEVE

[01:05:02]

IT'S GONNA BE ON WEDNESDAY THE 18TH WE'RE GONNA DO ONE AT ONE O'CLOCK AT ROSH RYDER'S THREE O'CLOCK AT COMANCHE AND IT'S BASIC FOR ANYBODY THAT WANTS TO HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ANSWERED OF WHERE WE'RE AT WHERE WE'RE GO AND HOW ANYTHING THEY NEED HELP WITH WITH ONLINE TEE TIMES OR FOLLOWING A PACKAGE THAT MIGHT WORK FOR HIM OR PEOPLE MAY JUST SAY YOU KNOW WHAT I WANT TO STAY WHERE I'M AT PAY GREEN FEES STAY IN THE MINI PASS PROGRAM WHATEVER. AND THEN AS MICHAEL SAID WE'RE TWEAKING THINGS AS WE GO THROUGH THE NEXT SEVERAL MONTHS YEAR TO HAVE SOME LONG TERM BENEFITS AS FAR AS OUR OPERATIONS ARE CONCERNED. SO. QUESTIONS I'LL JUST SAY GEORGE THAT WE REALLY APPRECIATE ALL THE WORK. I THINK THIS HAS STRETCHED YOUR POSITION AND YOUR TEAM GREATLY. AND WE'VE SEEN A LOT OF FEEDBACK. A LOT OF NEGATIVE FEEDBACK. AND JUST TO BE FRANK ABOUT IT AND YOU'VE BEEN THE FRONT LINES OF RECEIVING THAT. AND YET AT THE SAME TIME TRYING TO MAKE CHANGES TRYING TO IMPLEMENT TRYING TO PROVIDE GOOD CUSTOMER SERVICE. SO WE SEE YOU DOING ALL OF THOSE THINGS AND JUGGLING ALL OF THAT SPINNING THOSE PLATES. SO WE WANT TO SAY THANK YOU. I'M ESPECIALLY GRATEFUL FOR THE INTERACTION THAT YOU'VE HAD WITH THE GOLF TASK FORCE. I CAN SEE POTENTIAL IN ALL OF THESE CHANGES I THINK ACROSS THE BOARD WE CAN. I'M KNOWN FOR BEING IMPATIENT. I AM QUITE IMPATIENT. SO DO I WISH WE'D ALREADY IMPLEMENTED THESE. YES. DO I WISH WE WERE ALREADY SEEING THE BENEFIT OF THEM. YES. AND DO I WISH OUR GOLF SUBSIDY NUMBER WAS THAT MUCH SMALLER. YES BUT I CAN SEE THAT YOU GUYS ARE TRYING AS HARD AS YOU CAN.

AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A PROCESS IN A LOT OF IT'S GOING TO BE RELATIONSHIP BUILDING WITH THE FOLKS WHO DECIDED NOT TO PLAY. SO I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THE MONTHLY OPTION AS A COST ALTERNATIVE FOR THEM AND WE WANT TO PLAY GOLF. YEAH. I MEAN IT JUST MAKES IT EASIER FROM THE BUDGET. BUT YOU KNOW TALKING ABOUT OUR CUSTOMER YEAH THEY WERE NOT REAL HAPPY TWO YEARS AGO AND IN IT AND IT'S LIKE YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE HAPPY FOR PAYING MORE MONEY FOR GAS OR MILK OR BREAD AT THE GROCERY STORE. YOU JUST NEVER HAPPY WHEN YOU INCREASE THE PRICES WELL WHERE WE WERE AT. WAS IT THE RIGHT PLACE TO BE. WE WERE PROBABLY TOO CHEAP THAT WE NEED TO GO UP. PROBABLY SO IT'S HARD FOR THOSE PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THAT. BUT THAT'S THE REALITY OF WHERE WE NEEDED TO BE MOVING. BUT THEY WERE UPSET ABOUT IT. AND THAT'S BASICALLY BECAUSE WE WERE GETTING IN THEIR POCKET TO PLAY A SPORT THAT THEY REALLY LOVED TO PLAY AND THEY LIKE TO PARTICIPATE IN. AS TIME HAS GONE ON THROUGH TALKING TO THEM FOR TWO YEARS AND I SPENT A LOT OF TIME TALKING TO OUR CORE GOLFERS AND ANYBODY REALLY THAT WANTS TO TALK TO ME ABOUT IT AFTER WE GET OVER THE INITIAL SHOCK THEY UNDERSTAND WHERE WE'RE AT. AND THEY'RE KIND OF EXCITED ABOUT WHERE WE'RE MOVING ESPECIALLY WITH THE WAY THEY CAN BUDGET THEIR MONEY AND PAY FOR IT. SO I DO FEEL LIKE SOME OF THESE PEOPLE MAY WANT TO COME BACK TO US. WE HAD A JUST FOR AN EXAMPLE WE HAD A PAST BEFORE YALE'S TIME BUT WE HAD A PASSED PART PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR THAT PLAYS GOLF A LOT WITH US. AND I WAS SHOWING HIM SOME OF THIS YESTERDAY AND HE WAS ALWAYS REALLY ACTIVE IN THE GOLF LEAGUE AND THINGS LIKE THAT. AND BASICALLY HIS COMMENT WAS WE SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING THIS MONTHLY BILL AND TEN YEARS AGO. BUT FOR SURE WE PROBABLY SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT IT TWO YEARS AGO WHEN WE WENT UP ON THOSE PRICES. THE PROBLEM IS WE WOULDN'T BE IN WHERE WE'RE AT TODAY WITHOUT DOING IT THE WAY WE DID IT. SO WE LEARN AND WE MOVE FORWARD. AND WE'RE TRYING TO GO THROUGH THE PROCESS AND DO THE RIGHT THINGS FOR THEM AND FOR US AND FOR THE CITY FOR EVERYBODY. WELL AND YOU GUYS HAVE BEEN PART OF WHAT WE'VE WORKED SO HARD TO PUT IN PLACE AS A POLICY AT THE COUNCIL LEVEL THAT SAYS WE WANT TO THINK LONG TERM WHEN WE'RE MAKING FISCAL FINANCIAL DECISIONS AND PART OF THAT IS OUR LEARNING OUT OF THAT PROCESS SEEING THAT IT'S YOU CAN'T CATCH UP ALL THAT IN ONE OR YEARS. YEAH. AND SO EVEN THOUGH WE DID MAKE A SUBSTANTIAL CHANGE IT STILL DIDN'T CATCH US UP TO WHERE WE NEEDED TO BE. SO WE'RE LEARNING ON OUR SIDE AND WE'RE NOT WE'RE NOT THE ONLY COMMUNITY THAT FIGHTS THIS.

IT'S ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. AND SO IT'S LIKE MICHAEL SAID IT'S A BALANCE BETWEEN QUALITY OF LIFE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT WHAT YOUR GOLF COURSES STAND FOR IN YOUR TOWN GIVING YOUR CITIZENS SOMETHING TO DO. YOU KNOW THERE'S A BALANCE THERE. AND YOU GUYS AS A GROUP HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHERE YOU WHERE YOU NEED IT AND WHERE WE WANT TO

[01:10:04]

BE. WELL I'M VERY APPRECIATIVE OF YOU ALL TAKING THE TIME TO REALLY IDENTIFY THE ISSUE AND GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE OF THINGS BECAUSE I HAVE SEVERAL FRIENDS SEVERAL GOLF FRIENDS AND A LOT OF THEM ARE RETIRED AND I'VE TALKED TO TALK TO THEM ON A REGULAR BASIS BUT THEY NEVER MENTIONED THE FACT THAT OTHER GOLF COURSES WERE CHARGING MONTHLY VERSUS HAVING THE FUNDS UP FRONT. RIGHT. AND SO THIS IS A REAL EYE OPENER FOR ME BECAUSE I AND I UNDERSTAND THE STRUGGLE NOW TRYING TO COME UP WITH 2000 DOLLARS ALL AT ONCE OR 3000 VERSUS ON A MONTHLY BASIS AND I THINK IF THEY HAD SHARED THAT WITH ME EARLIER THAT'S A SOLUTION I COULD HAVE COME BACK TO YOU ALL AND SAID HEY YOU KNOW HOW YOU KNOW HAS THIS ALWAYS BEEN THE STANDARD AND HOW WE CHARGING THE FEES. WELL THE BAD NEWS IS YOU KNOW IT WASN'T A THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR NON THIRTY FOUR HOUR PERMIT AT THAT TIME. IT WAS A LOT OF MONEY BUT IT WASN'T CRIPPLING. SO TO SPEAK 570 FOR THE SENIOR AND QUITE FRANKLY IT WAS BASICALLY MARKETED LIKE THIS WHERE THE CITY. THIS IS OUR DEAL. TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT. BUT AS WE INCREASE THESE PRICES AND IT BECAME A LITTLE BIT MORE BURDENSOME TO COME UP WITH THE FUNDS WE RAN SOME PEOPLE OUT BUT IF WE COULD HAVE MADE IT A LITTLE BIT EASIER AND EASIER FOR THEM TO PAY FOR IT OR BUDGET FOR IT. I THINK WE CAN MOVE FORWARD AND MAYBE HEAL SOME OF THOSE WOUNDS. I THINK PART OF OUR CHALLENGE THOUGH ALSO ON THAT WAS DEPENDING ON WHAT TIER A PRIVATE CLUB MEMBER FELL IN OUR ANNUAL FEE YOU KNOW TWO YEARS AND BEYOND WAS NOT THAT MUCH MORE THAN A MONTHLY FEE. AND SOME OF THOSE PLACES DESERVE IT A BIT BUT THAT'S NOT A BLANKET STATEMENT I GET. IT'S NOT LIKE.

AND IT REALLY DEPENDS ON WHERE YOU FELL AND WHAT TYPE OF SERVICES YOU WERE BUYING AT A PRIVATE CLUB. BUT A MONTH OR TWO THREE TOPS AND STRAIGHT IN AND OUR MONTHLY ARE ABLE TO ACHIEVE IS NOT THAT MUCH MORE THAN A MONTHLY FEE AND SOME OF THESE PLACES WE MOVED TO WHERE WE'RE A LITTLE MORE COMPETITIVE AND WE REALLY DO. WE REALLY DIDN'T NEED TO LOOK AT WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT ROLLING IN THIS NEXT YEAR.

YEAH. YEAH. AND MOST OF THE GOLFERS THEY DID REALIZE OVER THE YEARS THAT SINCE THE FEES HAD NOT INCREASED THAT IT WAS REALLY TIME FOR AN INCREASE AND THEY KNEW THAT THEY WERE GETTING A A GREAT YOU KNOW A GREAT FEE STRUCTURE. ABSOLUTELY. SO THOSE TWO THOUSAND I KNEW THAT 2008 TO 2018 IT WAS TOO LONG. AND SELF ADMITTEDLY AND THERE WAS TIMES THAT WE HONESTLY. THOUGHT OUR RAISE THE QUESTION THAT WE NEED TO GO UP ON OUR GOLF BUT IT NEVER HAPPENED. AND SO IT JUST SAT THERE AND WE KNEW AT SOME POINT IN TIME THE BUBBLE WAS GONNA BREAK AND WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO DO SOMETHING.

AND IT DID. AND I JUST YOU KNOW I WISH WE COULD HAVE IN THE FUTURE HAVE DONE THAT OVER AND INCREMENTAL YOU KNOW. AND INCIDENTALLY ON THIS WHEN YOU GO WHEN WE WOULD HAVE OUR PRICE INCREASES ON OUR PART IN THE PAST IT WAS ON A YEARLY BASIS. SO IF WE HAD TO GO UP 80 OR 100 DOLLARS OR 60 DOLLARS ON A PASS BELOW WE HEARD IT WE HEARD IT EVERY TIME IT WAS LIKE AGAIN COST MORE FOR MILK AND BREAD. AND SO WE HEARD IT THEY GOT OVER IT BECAUSE THEY STILL KNOW THEY WERE GETTING A GOOD DEAL BUT WE STILL HEARD IT NOW MOVING FORWARD IF WE NEED 60 DOLLARS MORE PER PERSON. WE'RE TALKING FIVE DOLLARS A MONTH LOT EASIER TO BUDGET A LOT EASIER TO SWALLOW. AND THAT'S WHY WE WANT TO MOVE IN THIS DIRECTION. YEAH I AGREE. AND THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE APPRECIATE THAT GEORGE WOULD YOU SAY AGAIN WITH THE TIME FOR THAT HAPPY HOUR. WHAT ARE THOSE. WELL WHAT WHAT WE DO IS WE HAVE SOME TWILIGHT RATES AND LAST YEAR WE WERE THREE AND FIVE O'CLOCK THAT WE HAD OUR BREAKS ON OUR GREEN FEES. NOTHING ON WEEKENDS. MOVING FORWARD WE STARTED. WE ACTUALLY HAVE A LOT ON WEEKENDS. THAT STARTED A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO BUT IT WAS STILL THREE AND FIVE. AND THEN WHEN WE DID THIS HAPPY HOUR IT WAS IT WAS AT SIX O'CLOCK. SO WHAT WE'VE DONE TO KIND OF. TO MOVE THINGS A LITTLE BIT WHERE IT MAKES A LITTLE BIT MORE SENSE IS DURING THE SUMMER WE'RE MOVING OUR TWILIGHT HOURS TO WHAT WAS THREE AND FIVE OR NOW GOING GONNA BE TWO AND FOUR AND THEN WE PICK UP THIS ADDITIONAL PRICING WHICH IS ANOTHER TWILIGHT HAPPY HOUR AT SIX O'CLOCK. SO AT SIX O'CLOCK IN THE SUMMERTIME WHEN DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME AND IT'S NOT DARK TO NINE OR NINE THIRTY WHEN WE GO OFF DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME WE MOVE OUR TWILIGHT FROM TWO TO FOUR WE'RE MOVE WE MOVE ON TO 12:00 2:00 AND THEN WE'LL DO FOUR O'CLOCK RIGHT NOW WITH THE HAPPY HOUR. BUT REMEMBER IT'S DARK AT FIVE THIRTY. SO YOU DON'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME. SO BASICALLY WE FLOW WITH OUR TIME CHANGES BUT IN SEASON WE WERE TWO FOUR AND SIX O'CLOCK ON THE HAPPY HOUR. THAT'S A THAT'S A LOT OF INFORMATION RIGHT HERE AND THAT'S A LOT OF CHANGE RIGHT HERE. SO HOW ARE YOU GOING TO COMMUNICATE THAT TO ART ALL OVER ITS ALL

[01:15:01]

OVER BUILDINGS. IT'S ON OUR WEBSITE. I MEAN IN OUR GOLF HARD CORE GOLFERS KNOW IT AND REAL TO ATTRACT NON CORE GOLFERS THAT'S KIND OF WHO THIS MARKET IS. SO YOU KNOW JUST THINKING HOW ARE WE GOING TO GET THAT MESSAGE TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T SHOW UP DON'T SEE IT ON THE DOORS. THAT'S THAT'S WHERE KRISTIN'S DONE A GREAT JOB BECAUSE WE HAD SO MANY LIKES ABOUT THE HAPPY HOUR AND SO MANY COMMENTS AND IT WAS BASICALLY THIS IS A GOOD DEAL. WE NEED TO GO OUT THERE WE HAVEN'T BEEN TO OUR GOLF COURSES IN YEARS. WE NEED TO GO BACK OUT THERE AND DO THIS. WE'VE HAD FAMILIES I PROMISE YOU THEY WOULD NEVER STEP FOOT ON THESE GOLF COURSES BUT THEY CAME OUT FOR HAPPY HOUR BECAUSE THEY COULD COME OUT WITH THEIR FAMILY THEIR TWO KIDS AND THE WIFE AND THE HUSBAND AND THEY'D GO PLAY FOR FIVE SIX SEVEN HOLES WHATEVER THEY HAD TIME FOR THE COOL PART ABOUT HAPPY HOURS THE WAY WE CHARGE FOR GOLF IS BASICALLY BY THE NINE OR 18. SO. HEY YOU GOT TO GET GOT TO GET YOUR GOLF IN HAPPY HOUR. WE'RE NOT PROMISING HIM NINE HOLES OF GOLF. WE'RE PROMISING NEW PLAY AS MUCH GOLF AS YOU CAN UNTIL DARK. SO ANOTHER QUESTION ON THE EXPLORER THE FOUR AND A PRINT PRINTED MATERIALS ARE YOU WORKING WITH THE CONVENTION AND VISITOR COUNCIL ANY TO TRY AND MARKET THAT INFORMATION ON THE QUALITY OF OUR GOLF COURSES. TWO OUT OF TOWNERS THERE'S BEEN SOME TALK BUT I'M NOT SURE MICHAEL HOW MUCH WE'VE WE VISITED WITH THEM ON THAT AND THAT'S OK YOU KNOW I'M JUST THROWING IT OUT THERE TO BE SURE YOU'RE STILL IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND FOLLOWING UP ON THAT THAT EXPLORE THEREFORE WE ARE NOT TAPPING INTO PEOPLE WHO ARE VISITING HERE FOR CONVENTIONS THAT MIGHT BE HERE OVER THE WEEKEND THAT COULD GO AND IF THEY JUST KNEW A LITTLE BIT ABOUT OUR CAUSE IT'S MORE OF A SEASONAL PROGRAM. IN OTHER WORDS WE STARTED SELLING ON BLACK FRIDAY AND WE'RE GOING TO SELL UNTIL THE END OF DECEMBER AND THEN THAT'S IT. AND THEN YOU HAVE 20 20 TO PLAY THE FOUR ROUNDS OF GOLF AT LEAST ONE ON EACH OF THE GOLF COURSES. SO IT'S KIND OF A SEASONAL PROGRAM BECAUSE BASICALLY IT'S IT'S SIMILAR TO OUR MANY PAST WHICH WE HAVE IN PLACE AND WE DO. WE DID TURN A LOT OF OUR PERMANENT PLAYERS IN THE PAST THAT QUIT US INTO PART INTO MANY PAST PLAYERS.

THEY DIDN'T TOTALLY QUIT PLAYING GOLF BUT THEY GOT THEY GOT MORE PICKY AND CHOOSY ON THE DAYS THEY PLAYED GOLF BECAUSE INSTEAD OF IT COSTING THEM 10 DOLLARS AROUND IT'S COSTING THEM 20 DOLLARS AROUND. RIGHT. SO JUST MAKING SURE THAT WE'RE GETTING THAT INFORMATION TO OUR VISITORS AND GETTING THAT GROUP TO COORDINATE WITH US ON THAT AND THEN THE LAST ONE IS JUST ON THE NAMING OF THE OLD TIMER PASS. YOU DON'T ONLY FOCUS GROUP RESPONSES TO ACTUALLY THERE WAS SOME COMMENTS SAYING WHO WANTS TO BE CALLED THE OLD TIMER. THEY DO. IS IT THE GOLDEN TICKET THEY ACTUALLY THEY DO.

THAT'S WHAT THEY CALL THEMSELVES AT THE GOLF COURSE. AND THEN THE PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THE ROOM WHEN WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THIS ACTUALLY NAMED IT. AND THEN THERE WAS EVEN SOME CONVERSATION WITH THE ATTORNEYS YESTERDAY ABOUT ARE WE GOING TO GET INTO BACKLASH. AND HE SAID NO I KIND OF LIKE IT. AND SO IT IS. THAT'S WHAT THEY BASICALLY REFER TO THEMSELVES. ONCE YOU GET 80 YEARS OLD YOU STAY ON THE GOLF COURSE YOU'RE AN OLD. OK. WELL FOR THE RECORD THE POLITICIANS WERE SENSITIVE TO IT. YEAH. AND I BROUGHT IT UP. HEY FOR THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THEY'RE GETTING TO PLAY GOLF WHERE THEY'RE GOING TO BE HAPPY THEY DON'T CARE WHAT WE CALL THEM. SO LIKE THE SPARTAN TICKET OR ANYTHING ELSE. HOWARD. YES. I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT YOU'RE DOING HERE BUSINESS EVER GO INTO THE OUT OF BEING LOOK AT THEIR OWN BUSINESS AND LOOKING FOR EFFICIENCIES I WANNA COMPLIMENT YOU ON HAVING THE QUALITY GOLF COURSES IN YOUR RIDING HIGH IN THE STATE. BUT I WOULD SAY BE CAREFUL BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW THE QUALITY TO GO DOWN. YEAH AND THAT'S A BALANCE AND THAT'S WHAT YOU KNOW WE NEVER WANT TO YOU KNOW I GET WHERE WE'RE AT FINANCIALLY BUT THERE'S A BALANCE OF IF YOU KNOW WHERE YOU NEED TO KEEP YOUR GOLF COURSES IN GOOD SHAPE RIGHT NOW YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE A SECONDARY PROBLEM OF PEOPLE WON'T BE PLAYING YOUR FACILITIES NOT BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT IT BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. SO IT'S ALWAYS BEST YOU HAVE NICE GREENS YOU HAVE GOOD FAIRWAYS YOU HAVE GOOD TEES PEOPLE ARE GOING TO WANT TO PLAY YOUR GOLF COURSE YOU KNOW THAT I'VE TOLD MICHAEL THIS MILLION TIMES WE PROBABLY WOULDN'T BE SITTING IN THIS ROOM TALKING ABOUT THIS RIGHT NOW IF WE COULD FIGURE OUT HOW TO GIVE ME 12 MONTHS OF JUNE WEATHER AND THAT'S PART OF OUR CHALLENGES THAT WE HAVE IN THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY IS WE NEED THESE GOLF COURSES IN THE SUMMERTIME BECAUSE WE'RE BUSY AND PEOPLE ARE UTILIZING THEM BUT BUT PART OF THE PROBLEM IN TEXAS PANHANDLE IS FOR 5 6 MONTHS OUT OF YEAR THAT YEAR. I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE'RE GONNA GET. WE HAVE TO GEAR UP THAT IT'S GONNA BE A PRETTY NICE DAY BUT I'M CERTAIN CERTAIN DAYS IS NOT VERY NICE TO BE OUTSIDE PLAYING GOLF. YOU KNOW GEORGE LOOKING AT THE GREEN AND BLACK CHART I CAN SEE IN 2006 THERE WAS A TICK UP IN ROUNDS AND IN 2011 THERE WAS A TICK UP IN ROUNDS

[01:20:01]

AND I WONDERED IF THAT WAS JUST PURELY WEATHER RELATED. A LOT OF IT IS. SOME YEARS YOU CATCH IT A LITTLE BIT BETTER. I'M KEEPING TRACK OF I WOULD SAY 2006 AND 11 SOME OF IT TELL YOU THAT. WELL SEE IT WOULDN'T BE ELEVEN. 2006 IS COMING OFF THE RENOVATION OF WILD HORSE SO IT PROBABLY TAKE BACK TO MORE POPULAR. WELL NO IT WAS WORSE. I THINK THEY REALLY DID IT AND MORE EXCITEMENT. BUT GEORGE DOES TRACK METICULOUSLY WEATHER DAYS WIND DAYS BECAUSE WE LOSE DAYS NOT JUST TO RAIN AND COLD BUT ALSO TO WIND. YEAH. AND I'VE GOTTA YOU KNOW I'VE GOT A STANDARD FOR WHAT A GOLF DAY YEARS AND LIKE YOU KNOW JUST FOR EXAMPLE. I WON'T BORE YOU BUT NOVEMBER DECEMBER JANUARY FEBRUARY IF WE DON'T HAVE 25 ROUNDS PLAYED AT EITHER ONE OF OUR COMPLEXES THERE IS SOMETHING UP WITH THE WEATHER THAT DAY. IT'S EITHER A LITTLE COLD OR RAINY LITTLE SNOWY WINDY WHATEVER. IF WE GET A LOOK IF WE GET MORE THAN 25 ROUNDS A DAY IT'S PROBABLY A DECENT ENOUGH DAY TO PLAY GOLF. NOW WHAT YOU FIND IS WE HAVE 100 ROUNDS AND WE HAVE 15 ROUNDS. WELL THE DAY WE HAVE 15 ROUNDS YOU KNOW THERE'S SOMETHING WITH THAT WEATHER. WELL WHAT I FOUND WAS AFTER 2000 AND SET AT EIGHT 17 18 WHEN WE WENT UP ON OUR PRICES WE STARTED TO HAVE A LOT WORSE WEATHER DAYS. SO I STARTED CALLING THIS THAT WE TRACK WEATHER SLASH PRICING DAYS AND WHERE I'D COME FROM THAT AS WE USED TO HAVE TWO HUNDRED EIGHTY FOUR PEOPLE THAT WOULD PAY THEIR TWO OR THREE DOLLAR A GOLF COURSE IMPROVEMENT FEE BECAUSE THEY WERE AN ANNUAL PERMIT. THE WEATHER WASN'T VERY NICE. THEY MAY STILL COME OUT TO THE GOLF COURSE THEY MAY PLAY NINE HOLES IF THE WEATHER WAS JUST SO BAD THEY MAY CALL IT A DAY AT NINE HOLES. BUT THEY CAME OUT THERE. WE TURNED THOSE PLAYERS INTO A 20 DOLLAR PUNCH CARD PLAYER. SO NOW THAT RAW DAY IS GOING TO COST HIM TWENTY DOLLARS NOW TO COME PLAY AND THAT'S WHERE I FEEL LIKE THEY SAY YOU KNOW WHAT. I'M JUST GOING TO SAVE MY MONEY FOR A BETTER DAY TO PLAY GOLF. AND SO THAT'S WHERE SOME OF OUR ROUND CAME WHEN THEIR WEATHER GOT TOTALLY WORSE. WE'RE ALWAYS GONNA HAVE SOME UPS AND DOWNS BUT OVER THE COURSE OF THE WINTER GENERALLY THAT MAYBE A LITTLE WORSE. LITTLE MORE LITTLE BETTER A LITTLE WORSE WHATEVER ON AVERAGE THEY'RE ALL ABOUT THE SAME IT JUST MAY BE DIFFERENT MONTHS OF THE YEAR THAT IT'S DURING THE WINTER THAT IT'S UP OR DOWN. BUT OVER THE COURSE IT'S ABOUT THE SAME. BUT WE HAVE LOST MORE DAYS TO WHAT I CALL WEATHER NOW SLASH PRICING. SO THAT'S WHERE SOME OF OUR ROUNDS WENT. PEOPLE BECAME A LITTLE MORE CHOOSY OF THE DAYS THEY WENT TO THE GOLF COURSE. OK GREAT. GREAT INFORMATION. AND I HOPE YOU'RE WALKING AWAY FROM THE PODIUM FEELING AFFIRMED NOW THAT WE KNOW IT'S TAKEN A MINUTE. WE KNOW IT'S BEEN HARD BUT WE DO APPRECIATE YOU. WELL THERE'S NOT THERE'S NOTHING MORE THAN I WANT TO DO TO GET TO WHERE YOU PEOPLE AS A COUNCIL AND OUR CITIZENS AND OR IN OUR COMMUNITY FEEL GOOD ABOUT GOLF AND NOT BAD ABOUT GOLF. I THINK AS A GOLF COMMUNITY WE FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHAT WE'RE DOING. BUT SOMETIMES THERE'S OTHER CHALLENGES OUT THERE. AND I DON'T KNOW IF SOME OF THESE CHANGES ARE GOING TO GET US TO THE MARK THAT WE NEED TO GET TO. BUT I DON'T. ALL I DO KNOW IS WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO GET TO THOSE MARKS AND WHETHER WE GET THERE THERE'S A LOT OUTSIDE INFLUENCES WITH WEATHER AND THINGS LIKE THAT THAT I CAN'T CONTROL. BUT WE'RE GOING TO TRY. THAT'S ALL WE CAN DO. AND WE APPRECIATE THAT. I THINK YOU'RE GOING TO FIND THAT FROM THE COUNCIL'S POINT OF VIEW WE'RE ALWAYS GOING TO BE CONTENT. BUT WE ARE NEVER GOING TO BE SATISFIED. OK. AND SO THAT'S TRUE OF EVERY DEPARTMENT EVERYTHING THAT THE COUNCIL TOUCHES WE RECOGNIZE THE EFFORT Y'ALL ARE MAKING AND WE ARE CONTENT WITH THAT WE'RE ALWAYS GOING TO BE DISSATISFIED BECAUSE WE WE ALWAYS WANT. WE WANT MORE. I WAS LAUGHING WHEN YOU WERE TELLING THAT STORY ABOUT JUNE WEATHER ALL THE TIME AND LIKE AS SOON AS YOU'LL FIND THAT MAGIC WAND WE WANT IT. WE'VE GOT OTHER NEEDS FOR IT TOO SO THAT TIES INTO NEVER BEING SATISFIED. THAT'S CORRECT. THANKS GEORGE. YOU BET.

[2. CONSENT ITEMS]

ANYTHING THERE THAT NEEDS TO COME OFF FOR FURTHER DISCUSSION NOT SEEING ANYTHING I'D TAKE A MOTION ON ITEM TO MAYOR. I MOVE TO APPROVE THE CONSENT AGENDA AS PRESENTED SO IT'S THE MOVE BY COUNCIL MEMBER POWELL AND SECONDED BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH TO APPROVE THE ITEMS ON THE CONSENT AGENDA. ALL OF THOSE IN FAVOR PLEASE SAY AYE.

ANYONE OPPOSED THAT ITEM PASSES. LOOKING AT ITEM 3 A MR. CITY

[A. CONSIDER AWARD - FIVE-YEAR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES CONTRACT TO RS&H, INC.

MANAGER. RIGHT. WELL WE'VE GOT MICHAEL. MIKE CONNOR OUR AIRPORT DIRECTOR HERE TO

[01:25:04]

BRING US THE ITEM. THIS IS BASICALLY JUST A FIVE YEAR CONTRACT WITH OUR PRIMARY CONSULTANT FOR ALL AIRPORT PROJECTS. SO MIKE FACTORY WHAT WE JUST APPROVED A PROJECT FOR OUR AS AN H ON THE CONSENT AGENDA. CORRECT. GOOD AFTERNOON. COUNSEL MIKE O'CONNOR AND DIRECTOR OF AVIATION. SORRY I DIDN'T BRING ANY VIDEOS OR SOME VIDEO OF ENGINEERING WOULD BE KIND OF BE KIND OF BORING SO YEAH. ANYWAY MAYBE NEXT TIME NOBODY WANTS TO COMPETE WITH THOSE HAPPY KIDS ON THE PIRATE BAY. ABSOLUTELY NOT. THIS IS A FIVE YEAR ENGINEERING AND CONSULTING CONTRACT. WE OPERATE THESE CONTRACTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH FAA GUIDELINES AND REGULATIONS AND ARSON H ACTUALLY HAS BEEN VERY GOOD TO US OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS. THEY CURRENTLY HAVE OUR CURRENT CONTRACT OBVIOUSLY. AND THEY'VE DONE AN EXCELLENT JOB FOR US. SO WE'RE VERY HAPPY TO BE PRESENTING THIS THIS CONTRACT TO YOU AT THIS TIME. WE WENT THROUGH A CONSULTANT SELECTION PROCESS A REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL. WE HAD FIVE PANEL MEMBERS INCLUDING TWO FROM THE AIRPORT AND THREE FROM OTHER CITY DEPARTMENTS. THE CONTRACT INCLUDES ENGINEERING AND PROFESSIONAL CONSULTING SERVICES INCLUDING AIR SERVICE DEVELOPMENT AND STUDIES AND THOSE TYPE OF THINGS INCLUDING DESIGN SERVICES AND CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION AND ALSO OUR PR SERVICES RESIDENT PROJECT REPRESENTATIVE SERVICES FOR ALL OF OUR PROJECTS GOING FORWARD FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS SO THIS IS A FIVE YEAR CONTRACT. AS IN THE PAST ALL THE PROJECTS WILL BE ON AN INDIVIDUAL TASK ORDER BASIS JUST FOR BLACK OR FOR INFORMATION. FORTY FIVE TASK ORDERS WERE PRODUCED OVER THE PAST FIVE YEARS SO WE HAD QUITE A FEW TASK ORDERS TOTALING FOR THE ENGINEERING SERVICES ABOUT SIX POINT ONE MILLION DOLLARS OUT OF THOSE 45 TASK ORDERS. THAT'S FORTY FIVE TIMES WE'VE ACTUALLY COME TO YOU TO GET APPROVALS ON THOSE VARIOUS ITEMS. THE CURRENT CONTRACT EACH TASK ORDER WAS OF COURSE BROUGHT TO YOU AND WE WERE LOOKING AT THIS OVER A PERIOD OF TIME AND THE TIME IT TAKES FOR US TO REPAIR THE TIME IT COST ALL AND YOU TO HAVE TO APPROVE ALL THOSE ITEMS BY TASK ORDER. AND WE'VE MADE A CHANGE IN THIS PARTICULAR CONTRACT WHERE RATHER THAN HAVING AN OPEN ENDED CONTRACT FOR AN UNSPECIFIED DOLLAR AMOUNT LIKE THE CURRENT CONTRACT WE'D GO FOR A AT LEAST AN ESTIMATED AMOUNT OF SEVEN POINT FIVE MILLION FOR THE ENGINEERING SERVICES OF THE NEW CONTRACT AND IN REPLACE OF THAT HAVING NOT HAVING TO TAKE IT TO EVERY TASK ORDER TO THE COUNCIL. AND WE FEEL THAT THAT WILL HELP STREAMLINE KIND OF OUR OPERATION AND NOT HAVE TO KIND OF WASTE YOUR GUYS TIME ON APPROVING EVERY SINGLE ONE FOR EVERY PROJECT. YOU'LL SEE THE PROJECTS ANYWAY GOING FORWARD FOR THE CONSTRUCTION PORTIONS OF EACH PROJECT AND OF COURSE ALL THE PROJECTS OR OR MOST OF THE PROJECTS THAT ARE LISTED IN OUR BUDGET EVERY YEAR FOR RCMP. SO WE FOUND THAT YOU KNOW OTHERWISE IT'S JUST KIND OF REDUNDANT AND I THINK AS I SAID WE DON'T ALL WASTE EVERYBODY'S TIME. SO LIKE I SAID IT'S A SEVEN POINT FIVE MILLION DOLLAR NOT TO EXCEED CONTRACT SO IF WE EVER GOT TO A POINT WHERE WE WOULD NEED ADDITIONAL FUNDS FOR ADDITIONAL PROJECTS WE WOULD OF COURSE HAVE TO BRING THAT TO YOU FOR ADDITIONAL APPROVAL. AND MIKE HOW MUCH OF THIS DO WE ANTICIPATE IS GOING TO BE PAID FOR THROUGH FEDERAL FUNDS. CORRECT. SO WE'RE ESTIMATE 90 PERCENT OF IT IS IS OF MOST CONTRACTS FOR THIS TYPE OF SERVICES PROVIDED BY A FEDERAL GRANT THROUGH THE FAA. SO RIGHT NOW WE'RE ESTIMATING A TOTAL PROJECT TOTAL PROJECTS IN THE FIVE YEARS OF ABOUT TWENTY SEVEN MILLION. AND THAT. GIVES US SOME FAA FUNDING ESTIMATE ABOUT TWENTY ONE POINT SIX MILLION. SO WE'VE GOT QUITE A BIT WOULD BE FEDERALLY FUNDED AND SOME PROJECTS THAT WE DO AREN'T FEDERALLY FUNDED. SO YOU KNOW THERE'S SOME WE'D HAVE TO DO ON OUR OWN KIND OF PUT A SHORTLIST OF POSSIBLE PROJECTS THAT WE COULD HAVE SOME ARE LISTED IN OUR FIVE YEAR CAPITAL PLAN AS IT IS POSSIBLY BUILDING THIS CUSTOMS BUILDING WHICH COULD BE A THREE MILLION DOLLAR PROJECT WHICH WAS PART OF THE STUDY FOR IS PART WHAT YOU JUST APPROVED IN THE IN THE CONSENT AGENDA. POSSIBLY AS TAXIWAY RECONSTRUCTIONS POSSIBLY NEW TAXIWAYS NEW APRONS BAGGAGE CAROUSEL REHAB REHABILITATION PARKING GARAGE REPAIRS. ADDITIONAL HANGARS ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENTS WE KNOW WE'LL HAVE PROBABLY ONE OR TWO OF THOSE NEW BOARDING BRIDGE WE HAVE A GATE THAT WE DON'T CURRENTLY HAVE A BOARDING BRIDGE AND WE LIKE TO ADD ONE THERE WORK ON A PERIMETER ROAD FENCE REPLACEMENTS AND NEW PARKING GARAGE ELEVATOR AND A NEW AIRCRAFT

[01:30:02]

RESCUE AND FIREFIGHTING TRAINING SIMULATOR WHICH WE'VE HAD TO UNFORTUNATELY NOT USE THIS PAST YEAR AND A HALF. SO WE'VE ALSO PUT IN THERE FIVE YEARS OF AIR SERVICE DEVELOPMENT AND ABOUT A HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR THAT'S 750000 THOUSAND OF THAT SEVEN POINT FIVE MILLION ADDITIONAL AMOUNTS FOR UNKNOWN OR EMERGENCY REPAIR PROJECTS AT LEAST A MILLION DOLLARS THERE. OF THOSE TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS ADDITIONAL AMOUNTS FOR UNKNOWN OR EMERGENCY CAPITAL PROJECTS MOST LIKELY TWO MILLION DOLLARS THERE AND ABOUT A 10 PERCENT CONTINGENCY KIND OF BUILT INTO THE WHOLE NUMBER. SO LIKE I SAID THERE ARE 90 PERCENT FEDERALLY FUNDED AND WE'VE GOT ABOUT PROBABLY ABOUT ONE POINT FIVE TO 2.5 ESTIMATED FOR NON FAA FUNDED PROJECTS. SO DO NOT SHOW THE ARTS AND NATURE PROJECTS SINCE TAKING SINGULARLY THEY TYPICALLY SHOW UP ON CONSENT AGENDAS BECAUSE THEY'RE PRETTY ROUTINE AND THEY'RE TYPICALLY NOT VERY LARGE. BUT WHEN YOU TAKE THEM ALL. ALL FIVE YEARS ALL AT ONE TIME IT'S A BIG NUMBER. WE WANT IT. THAT'S THE REASON WHY WE PUT IT ON THE ON THE ACTION AGENDA. MEAN I'M SORRY ON THE NON CONSENT AGENDA BECAUSE IT'S JUST SUCH A BIG NUMBER. WE KNEW IT WOULD YOU KNOW DRAW ATTENTION SO WE WANTED TO HAVE THAT CONVERSATION JUST TO MAKE SURE THAT WE ADDRESSED ANY QUESTIONS COUNCIL MIGHT HAVE A THING FOR MR. CARR COUNCIL. THANK YOU MIKE.

APPRECIATE IT. WE APPRECIATE WHAT YOU'RE DOING AT THE AIRPORT TO HAVE A MOTION WITH REGARD TO ITEM 3A. YES. MAYOR I MOVE TO MOVE TO APPROVE A FIVE YEAR PROFESSIONAL SERVICES CONTRACT FOR PROFESSIONAL ENGINEERING AND CONSULTING SERVICES FOR THE FUTURE DESIGN OF AIRPORT PROJECTS INCLUDING CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION RESIDENT PROJECT REPRESENTATIVE SERVICES AIR SERVICE DEVELOPMENT AND RELATED AIRPORT CONSULTING TO R S AND H INC. NOT TO EXCEED THE AMOUNT OF SEVEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS. GOOD JOB. THAT'S A LONG MOTION. THANK YOU. OKAY. MOTION MADE BY COUNCIL MEMBER POWELL A SECOND ABOUT COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH. ANY FURTHER DISCUSSION ON THAT. QUESTIONS. ALL THOSE IN FAVOR PLEASE SAY AYE. ANYONE OPPOSED.

THAT PASSES. MOVING ON TO ITEM 3B. MR. CITY MANAGER THREE B

[B. DISCUSSION AND CONSIDERATION OF ORDINANCE NO. 7828: (Contact: Floyd Hartman, Assistant City Manager) This item is the first reading of an ordinance amending the Amarillo Municipal Code, Chapter 16-5-50, Article III, which authorizes the operation of golf carts on streets in the Central Business District (amending Ordinance No. 7782) to remove the sunset provision of the existing ordinance that provides a permit system for the use of golf carts to transport passengers among certain downtown facilities and venues.]

IS THE CONSIDERATION FOR ORDINANCE 7 8 2 8 AND THIS IS THE GOLF CART ON CITY STREETS ORDINANCE THAT WE USE IN THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT TO ALLOW GOLF CARTS TO BE USED TO TRANSPORT PEOPLE TO AND FROM EVENTS IN DIFFERENT BUILDINGS DOWNTOWN.

WHEN WE PUT THIS IN PLACE WE SAID THAT WE WOULD BRING IT BACK FOR REVIEW AT THE END OF THE YEAR. WE HAVE REVIEWED THE ORDINANCE WE HAVE REVIEWED THE GOLF CORPORATE UTILIZATION AND THE PERFORMANCE. THE THING THAT WE WERE CONSIDERING IS PUTTING IN A FRANCHISE FEE FOR THIS BUT THE USE HAS NOT BEEN ADEQUATE TO JUSTIFY A FRANCHISE FEE. IT HAS BEEN WORKING WELL WHEN IT IS USED. THE PEOPLE THAT ARE DOING THE GOLF CARTS ARE DOING IT IN IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ORDINANCE AND ARE DOING IT SAFELY. WE RECOMMEND THAT THIS SAME ORDINANCE BE KEPT IN PLACE AND JUST REMOVE THE SUNSET PROVISION. IT WILL NOT REQUIRE A FRANCHISE FEE GOING FORWARD IF WE APPROVE IT THE WAY IT IS. AND OBVIOUSLY IF WE HAVE A CHANGE IN HOW GOLF CARTS ARE USED DOWNTOWN OR IF WE FEEL THERE IS A LACK OF UTILIZATION OF THE SAFETY STANDARDS THAT ARE CALLED OUT IN THE ORDINANCE THEN WE CAN ALWAYS BRING IT BACK TO RECOMMEND A FRANCHISE FEE FORMAT GOING FORWARD. SO THAT'S WHAT THIS WOULD DO IS JUST APPROVE THE ORDINANCE AS IT IS AND REMOVE THE SUNSET PROVISION.

COUNCILLOR DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THAT. HOW MANY OPERATORS DO WE HAVE DOING. GOLF CART SERVICE THREE 3 OR 4 3 3 3 7 PRETTY SEASONAL. STRICTLY MORE WITH.

IT WAS ALL PURELY BASEBALL AND REALLY ONLY AT THE START FIRST PART OF THE SEASON TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEASON STARTED TAPERING OFF. TO HAVE A MOTION ON ITEM 3 BE COUNCIL. YES MAYOR. I MOVED TO ADOPT ORDINANCE NUMBER 78 28 WHICH AUTHORIZES THE OPERATION OF GOLF COURTS OR GOLF CARTS ON STREETS IN THE CENTRAL BUSINESS DISTRICT TO REMOVE THE SUNSET PROVISION OF THE EXISTING ORDINANCE THAT PROVIDES A PERMIT SYSTEM FOR THE USE OF GOLF CARTS TO TRANSPORT PASSENGERS AMONG CERTAIN DOWNTOWN FACILITIES AND VENUES. IT'S BEEN MOVED BY COUNCIL MEMBER POWER TO APPROVE ORDINANCE NUMBER 78 28 IS SECONDED BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH. ANY FURTHER QUESTIONS OR DISCUSSION. HEARING ON ALL OF THOSE IN FAVOR PLEASE SAY AYE. OPPOSED.

ITEM PASSES WITH THE 4-0 VOTE. ITEM 3C IS CONSIDERATION OF ORDINANCE NUMBER 78

[C. PUBLIC HEARING AND CONSIDERATION OF ORDINANCE NO. 7829: (Contact: Cris Valverde, Assistant Director of Planning and Development Services) This item is the first reading and public hearing of an ordinance rezoning a 102.39 acre tract of unplatted land in Section 61 and 62, Block 2, AB&M Survey, Potter County, Texas, plus one-half of all bounding streets, alleys, and public ways to change from Agricultural District to Planned Development District 325A for an industrial park and associated uses. (Vicinity: Northeast 24th Avenue and Folsom Road.)]

[01:35:05]

TWENTY NINE MR. CITY MANAGER WELL WE'VE GOT CRISTO VERDE IS THIS THE DIRECTOR OF PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT AND HE'S GOING TO HAVE THE NEXT THREE ITEMS TO REZONING AND ONE VACATION NATION. THAT'S CORRECT. MAYOR COUNTS. GOOD AFTERNOON. ORDINANCE SEVENTY EIGHT TWENTY NINE IS FOR THE REZONING OF A ONE HUNDRED AND TWO POINT THIRTY NINE ACRE TRACT OF UNPOLLUTED LAND IN SECTION 61 AND 62 BLOCK 2 A.M. SURVEY IT'S LOCATED IN POTTER COUNTY TEXAS IT'S THE CHANGE FROM AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT TO PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT 325 A FOUR AND INDUSTRIAL PARK IN ASSOCIATED USE IS THE VICINITY IS NORTHEAST 24TH AND FOLSOM ROAD. THIS PARTICULAR SLIDE SHOWS SOME OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE AREAS SUCH AS ADJACENT ZONING DISTRICT DISTRICTS WHICH CONSIST OF GENERAL RETAIL DISTRICT RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT 3 AND AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT TO THE NORTH PLAN DEVELOPMENT DISTRICT 325 TO THE WEST AND AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT TO THE EAST AS WELL AS LIGHT INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT TO THE SOUTH ACROSS THE RURAL ROAD RIGHT AWAY THERE. IMMEDIATELY IMMEDIATELY ADJACENT LAND USES CONSIST OF UNDEVELOPED LAND IN ALL DIRECTIONS. AGAIN THESE AREA CHARACTERISTICS ARE BEING SHOWN ON THE MAP. THE COLOR REPRESENTATION DOES SHOW THE ZONING AND THROUGH THAT THE COLORS ON THE MAP YOU CAN SEE SOME OF THE DEVELOPMENT OR NO DEVELOPED NON DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA. AGAIN A CHANGE IN ZONING IS BEING REQUESTED IN ORDER TO EXPAND THE EXISTING CENTER PORT BUSINESS PARK EASTWARD TO ENCOMPASS THIS PARTICULAR AREA FOR COMMERCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL USES.

ANALYZING THE REQUEST BEGINS WITH REFERRING TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLANS FUTURE LAND USE AND CHARACTER MAP WHICH IDENTIFIES OR RECOMMENDS FUTURE LAND USES FOR A PARTICULAR AREA. ADDITIONALLY CONSIDERATION ON WHAT IMPACT A PARTICULAR REQUEST HAS ON EXISTING DEVELOPMENT AND ZONING PATTERNS IS ALSO TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION AS PRESENTED. DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS OF THIS PLAN DEVELOPMENT ARE AS FOLLOWS. ALLOWED LAND USES WILL CONSIST OF ANY USE ALLOWED WITHIN A HEAVY COMMERCIAL HEAVY INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT PROHIBITED LAND USES INCLUDE NO SLAUGHTERHOUSE STORAGE OF LIVESTOCK AND OR LIVE ANIMALS NO USE WHICH NEGATIVELY IMPACTS THE BUSINESS PARK OR NEIGHBORING AREAS THE OFFENSIVE ODOR FUMES DUST SMOKE POLLUTION OR WHICH CONSTITUTES A HAZARD OR NUISANCE. IN ANY EVENT SHALL NO LAND USE BE OR LAND BE USED FOR ANY ADULT ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES AND THAT INCLUDES USE OF THE LAND AS FAR AS MANUFACTURING DISTRIBUTION AND OR OTHER ADULT ACTIVITIES. ALL OTHER DEVELOPMENT STANDARD SHALL COMPLY WITH HEAVY INDUSTRIAL DISTRICT. A PLANNED DEVELOPMENT SITE PLAN HAS BEEN SUBMITTED AS PART OF THIS REQUEST AND IS NOW BEING SHOWN ON THE SCREEN FOR YOUR REFERENCE. THE AREA CONSISTS OF SEVEN TRACTS OF LAND AND FOR VARIOUS NON RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT AND ALL TRACKS WILL ADHERE TO THE JUST MENTIONED DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS WHEN TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE ABOVE OR THE JUST MENTIONED STANDARDS MORE IN PARTICULAR THE ALLOWED AND PROHIBITED LAND USES. IT WAS THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S OPINION THAT THE REZONING REQUEST IS CONSISTENT WITH THE 2010 COMPREHENSIVE PLANS FUTURE LAND USE MAP WHICH RECOMMENDS INDUSTRIAL LAND USES FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA. IT WAS ALSO THE PLANNING COMMISSIONERS OPINION THAT ALTHOUGH RESIDENTIAL ZONING DOES EXIST TO THE NORTH. CONSIDERING EXISTING INDUSTRIAL ZONING TO THE SOUTH AND WEST AS WELL AS GENERAL RETAIL DISTRICT TO THE NORTH IN ADDITION TO THE NUISANCE RESTRICTIONS BEING PROPOSED WITH THIS PLAN DEVELOPMENT THE EXPANSION OF THE EXISTING PLANNED DEVELOPMENT WOULD NOT BE INCONSISTENT WITH THE AREA ZONING AND DEVELOPMENT PATTERNS. AN AERIAL IS NOW BEING SHOWN ON THE SCREEN AND THAT KIND OF GIVES A BIGGER PICTURE OF THE DEVELOPMENT PATTERNS OUT THERE YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF NON RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT HAS OCCURRED IN THE AREA. THERE IS A SMALL PARK POCKET OF RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT JUST NORTH OF THIS TRACK BUT DOES NOT AS DEVELOPED DOES NOT GO SOUTH TO THIS PARTICULAR TRACK BEING RESOUND STAFF NOTIFIED ALL PROPERTY OWNERS WITHIN 200 FEET OF THIS REQUEST. AND AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME WE HAVE ONLY RECEIVED ONE COMMENT REGARDING THE EXPANSION OF THIS EXISTING PLANNED DEVELOPMENT. THE AREA PROPERTY OWNER WHO OWNS THE RESIDENTIAL ZONE LOTS TO THE NORTH. EXPRESSED CONCERNS IN PART WITH POSSIBLE NUISANCE OR ODOUR AND NOISE WITHIN NON RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE AREA. DURING THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION MEETING IT WAS RELATED TO THE PROPERTY OWNER THAT

[01:40:04]

THERE ARE PROVISIONS THAT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT NUISANCE ACTIVITIES AS WELL AS PROHIBITION OF CERTAIN LAND USES AND EARLIER ON A JUST KIND OF DESCRIBE WHAT THOSE WERE. THOSE ARE GOING TO BE INCORPORATED IN THE PLANNED DEVELOPMENT AS WELL. THEY ARE ALSO PART OF DEED RESTRICTIONS FOR THIS PROPERTY. SO THERE'S KIND OF A DOUBLE SET OF STANDARDS THAT WILL HAVE TO BE COMPLIED. THE LAND OWNER THE LAND OWNER WAS POSITIVE OF THESE STANDARDS BEING INCLUDED IN THE PLAN DEVELOPMENT AND STATED THAT THESE CONCERNS WERE BEING ADDRESSED BY DOING SO. HOWEVER THE PROPERTY OWNERS STILL DID HAVE SOME CONCERN WITH THE POTENTIAL LOWERING OF HIS PROPERTY VALUES. SHOULD EXPANSION OF THE EXISTING BUSINESS PARK OCCUR. I WOULD NOTE ALSO THAT REPRESENTATIVES FROM BOTH ADC AND CITY HAVE MET WITH HIM TO ADDRESS HIS CONCERNS. I THINK THEY'VE DONE EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO ADDRESS THOSE CONCERNS.

ABSOLUTELY IN AND I WOULD LIKE TO ALSO ADD TO THAT THAT WE DID HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH THAT PARTICULAR PROPERTY OWNER TODAY AND. HE WAS REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT MAYBE SOME CONNECTIVITY BETWEEN THE BUSINESS PARK IN THAT RESIDENTIAL AREA TO THE NORTH. ONE OF THOSE BEING SOLID WASTE SERVICES OR ALLEYS AS AS DESIGNED THERE WILL BE NO CONNECTIVITY THERE. THERE WILL BE NO ALLEY ADJACENT TO THIS RESIDENTIAL AREA FOR COMMERCIAL USE. SO THERE IS A TRUE SEPARATION OR DELINEATION FROM INDUSTRIAL AND ANY RESIDENTIAL AREAS TO THE NORTH. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO NOTE THAT NOT ONLY DOES THIS COMPREHENSIVE PLAN RECOMMEND INDUSTRIAL ZONING FOR THIS PARTICULAR OR LAND USES FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA OUR PREVIOUS COMPREHENSIVE PLAN THAT THE LATEST MAJOR REVISION DATING BACK TO 89 ALSO DID RECOMMEND INDUSTRIAL USES FOR THIS AREA. SO THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF DOCUMENTATION. THAT IS PUBLIC THAT HAS KIND OF DEEMED THIS AREA. TO BE SET ASIDE FOR INDUSTRIAL OR NON-RESIDENTIAL LAND USE IS AGAIN CONSIDERING ALL THE ABOVE THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION BELIEVES THAT THE APPLICANT'S REQUEST PROVIDES SUFFICIENT SAFEGUARDS BY THE WAY OF DEVELOPMENT STANDARDS THAT ATTEMPT TO MITIGATE ANY NEGATIVE IMPACT ON SURROUNDING PROPERTY AND BECAUSE OF SUCH THEY DID RECOMMEND APPROVAL AS PRESENTED.

THAT ITEM PASSES WITH. MOVING ON TO ITEM 3D CHRIS ITEM 3D IS ORDERED IN

[D. PUBLIC HEARING AND CONSIDERATION OF ORDINANCE NO. 7830: (Contact: Cris Valverde, Assistant Director of Planning and Development Services) This item is the first reading and public hearing of an ordinance rezoning a 13.98 acre tract of unplatted land in Section 191, Block 2, A.B.&M. Survey, Potter County, Texas, plus one-half of all bounding streets, alleys, and public ways to change from Agricultural District to Residential District 3. (Vicinity: Temecula Creek Boulevard and Riesling Way.)]

THIS PARTICULAR SLIDE SHOWS AREA CHARACTERISTICS SUCH AS ZONING AND THE ADJACENT ZONING CONSIST OF RESIDENTIAL DISTRICT 3 TO THE EAST AND AGORA AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT TO THE NORTH SOUTH AS WELL AS A PORTION OF THE PROPERTY TO THE WEST. THE APPLICANT IS REQUESTING A CHANGE IN ZONING IN ORDER TO CONTINUE WITH THE NEXT PHASE OF THE VINEYARD SUBDIVISION ANALYSIS OF ANY ZONING CHANGE BEGINS WITH REFERRING AGAIN TO THE COMPREHENSIVE PLANS FEATURED LAND USE MAP ALSO CONSIDERED IS HOW IT IS ONLY CONFORMS TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD UNIQUE CONCEPT OF DEVELOPMENT WITHIN A PARTICULAR AREA. WHEN COMPARING THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP AND THE REZONING REQUEST THE APPLICANTS REQUEST DIFFERS FROM WHAT IS RECOMMENDED FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA AS IT IS DESIGNATED FOR RURAL DEVELOPMENT. WHEN COMPARING SUCH DESIGNATION CALLS FOR RESIDENTIAL USES YET ARE FOR ONES THAT HAVE LOWER DENSITY AND GREATER OPEN SPACES. ALTHOUGH THE PORTION OF THIS PARTICULAR SITE TO BE DEVELOPED WILL NOT REPRESENT THE JUST MENTIONED CHARACTERISTICS OF RURAL DEVELOPMENT IT SHOULD BE RECOGNIZED THAT THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN CONDITIONS FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA SINCE THIS PROPERTY WAS. CONSIDERED

[01:45:06]

IN THE 2010 COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FUTURE LAND USE MAP. ACTUALLY YOU CAN KIND OF SAY THAT THE FUTURE LAND USE MAP DESIGNATION MAY HAVE BEEN A RESULT OF THE AGRICULTURAL ZONING THAT WAS EXISTING AT THE TIME OF ADOPTION AGRICULTURAL ZONING AGAIN IS KIND OF A PLACE HOLDER FOR FUTURE DEVELOPMENT AND SO IT'S IT'S MORE THAN LIKELY THAT THEY JUST WANTED TO KIND OF MIRROR THAT PLACE HOLDER ZONING AS BEST AS POSSIBLE UNTIL FUTURE DEVELOPMENT PLANS DID OCCUR AGAIN ARE THREE AND ALLOWED USES OF SINGLE FAMILY HOMES IS THE PREDOMINANT ZONING PATTERN OUT THERE AND ALSO IT DOES COMPLY WITH THE APPROVED PRELIMINARY PLAN THAT WAS PREVIOUSLY APPROVED FOR THIS PARTICULAR AREA. SO THIS WAS REALLY FALLING INTO ALL PHASES OF DEVELOPMENT THAT HAS BEEN APPROVED PREVIOUSLY AND SO WITH THAT WE DID SEND PROPERTY OWNER NOTICES TO EVERYBODY WITHIN TWO HUNDRED FEET WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY CALL. THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION CONSIDERED THAT CONSIDERS THIS A LOGICAL CONTINUATION OF THE EXISTING ZONING AND DEVELOPMENT PATTERN IN THE AREA AND RECOMMENDS APPROVAL AS PRESENTED. ANY QUESTIONS FOR CHRIS COUNCIL. THANK YOU CHRIS. THIS TIME WE'LL OPEN A PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS MATTER ANYONE PRESENT WHO WISHES TO SPEAK FOR ON OR AGAINST THE MATTER WILL HAVE THREE MINUTES TO COME TO THE PODIUM AND DO SO AS ANYONE PRESENT WHO WANTS TO SPEAK C NO ONE WILL CLOSE THE PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS MATTER AND ENTERTAIN A MOTION.

ITEM 3E THIS IS ORDINANCE 78 31 AND IT'S FOR THE VACATION OF TWO 20 FOOT

[E. PUBLIC HEARING AND CONSIDERATION OF ORDINANCE NO. 7831: (Contact: Cris Valverde, Assistant Director of Planning and Development Services) This item is the first reading and public hearing of an ordinance vacating a portion of a twenty-foot Public Utility Easement in Block 311 and a twenty-foot Public Utility Easement in Block 312, Mirror Addition, in Section 155, Block 2, AB&M Survey, Potter County, Texas (Vicinity: Southeast 3rd Avenue and Ross Street.)]

PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENTS AND BLOCK 311 AND BLOCK 312 MERE ADDITION. THEY'RE BOTH IN SECTION 155 BLOCK 2 A.M. SURVEY AND THEY'RE LOCATED IN POTTER COUNTY TEXAS THE VICINITY OF SOUTHEAST THIRD AVENUE AND ROSS STREET. THE APPLICANT IS RE QUESTIONING THE ABANDONMENT OF THE JUST MENTIONED PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENTS THAT WERE DEDICATED IN 1954 AS A RESULT OF TWO ALLEYS BEING VACATED IN THAT SAME YEAR.

THESE BLOCKS WERE INITIALLY SUBDIVIDED INTO LOTS FOR RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT. YET SINCE APPROVAL IN 1889 COMMERCIAL ZONING AND DEVELOPMENT HAS OCCURRED WITHIN THESE BLOCKS. THIS IS EVIDENCED BY THE NON RESIDENTIAL LAND USES AND ADJACENT AND ADJACENT PROPERTY TO THE NORTH WEST AND SOUTH OF THESE BLOCKS WITH DEVELOPMENT NOT OCCURRING AS INITIALLY PLANNED AND SUBSEQUENT NON-RESIDENTIAL DEVELOPMENT OBTAINING UTILITY SERVICE CITY AT THE ADJACENT RIGHTS OF WAYS THESE PREVIOUS ALLEYWAYS AND EASEMENTS FOR THAT MATTER WERE NEVER IMPROVED OR EQUIPPED WITH UTILITY INFRASTRUCTURE SUCH AS WATER SEWER ELECTRICAL AND OR CABLE. THE APPLICANT NOW OWNS THE UNDEVELOPED UNDEVELOPED PORTIONS OF THESE TWO BLOCKS AND HAS SUBMITTED A PLAN THAT WILL COMBINE THE PRESIDENTIALLY PLOTTED LOT INTO LARGE COMMERCIAL TRACKS.

THIS IS IN PREPARATION FOR UPCOMING DEVELOPMENT OF THE SITE. AS WITH ANY VACATION REQUEST THE APPLICANT IS REQUIRED TO EITHER PAY FAIR MARKET VALUE TO ACQUIRE THE AREA DEDICATE AN AREA OF GREATER OR EQUAL VALUE. PAY ONLY THE HIGHER COST OF THE FAIR MARKET VALUE OR THE RELOCATION COST OR COMPLETE A COMBINATION OF THESE REQUIREMENTS. IN THIS PARTICULAR CASE THE APPLICANT IS DEDICATING APPROXIMATELY 70 500 SQUARE FEET OF RIGHT OF WAY VIA THE PLANT. YET THIS SQUARE FOOTAGE IS BELOW WHAT IS BEING VACATED BY TWO THOUSAND ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY FOUR SQUARE FEET. SO DEDICATION OF AN AREA OR AN AREA OF EQUAL OR GREATER VALUE HAS NOT BEEN ACCOMPLISHED. AS SUCH THE APPLICANT IS REQUIRED TO PAY THE FAIR MARKET VALUE OF THE REMAINING SQUARE FOOTAGE WHICH AMOUNTS TO ONE THOUSAND SEVENTY SIX DOLLARS. THE APPLICANT HAS PAID THIS AND WE ALSO DID SEND THIS OUT TO ALL UTILITY COMPANIES.

THERE IS NO EQUIPMENT IN THIS PARTICULAR AREA. THERE IS NO REAL NEED FOR THIS PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT. WE DID SEND NOTICES I'M SORRY WE DID NOT BECAUSE THIS IS JUST A PUBLIC UTILITY EASEMENT. THE CONSIDERING ALL THIS THE PLANNING AND ZONING COMMISSION RECOMMENDS APPROVAL AS PRESENTED ANY QUESTIONS COUNSEL FOR CHRIS. THANK YOU CHRIS AT THIS TIME WE'LL OPEN A PUBLIC HEARING ON THIS MATTER

[F. CONSIDER APPROVAL - EAST GATEWAY TAX INCREMENT REINVESTMENT ZONE #2 DEVELOPER AGREEMENT FOR JAMAL ENTERPRISES, LP: (Contact: Andrew Freeman, Director of Planning and Development Services) This item approves a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) #2 Developer Agreement for the Jamal Enterprises, LP Toot'n Totum Travel Center project to be located at 7909 East Interstate 40.

The rebate is contingent upon certain deadlines for building permit issuance and receiving a certificate of occupancy.]

I GOT ANDREW FREEMAN HERE TO PRESENT THE DIRECTOR OF PLANNING AND I CANNOT ADVIL OR PLANNING DEVELOPMENT BUT BEFORE I GIVE IT TO HIM FROM THE STILL A LITTLE BIT OF HIS THUNDER AND JUST GIVE A LITTLE BIT A PREFACE ON THE PURPOSE OF TEARS NUMBER TWO YOU PROBABLY GOT SOME OF THAT IN THERE BUT THE PURPOSE OF TEARS NUMBER TWO IS TO ENCOURAGE INVESTMENT IN OUR EAST GATEWAY TEARS. THAT INVESTMENT IS GOING TO PROVIDE INCREMENTAL REVENUE TO THE CITY AND TO AND TO OUR MUNICIPALITIES THAT ARE PARTICIPATING. I'M SORRY OUR JURISDICTIONS THAT ARE PARTICIPATING IN HERE'S NUMBER TWO TO PAY FOR IT NEEDED INFRASTRUCTURE AND FACILITIES IN THE AREA. THIS PROJECT FALLS RIGHT INTO THAT CATEGORY. LET ANDREW INTRODUCE THE GUESTS IN THE ROOM. BUT THIS WILL BE THE BIGGEST EXAMPLE OF WHATEVER THIS IS THAT'S EVER BEEN BUILT. SO. SO JERRY TOOK CARE OF MY FIRST SLIDE FOR ME. I WENT OUT OF MY WAY TO NOT STEAL ALL OF YOUR THUNDER. IT'S JUST. YES JUST BRIEFLY. THESE WERE VERBIAGE STRAIGHT OUT OF PROJECTS AND FINANCING PLAN FOR TEARS NUMBER TWO. SO IT DOES TALK ABOUT A DEDICATED REVENUE SOURCE TO HELP REVITALIZE THAT AREA SPECIFICALLY FOR PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE AND THE PUBLIC ATHLETIC FACILITY IT WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2000 16 WAS A BASE YEAR. AS YOU ALL KNOW TAX INCOME AREA INVESTMENTS OUT HAS A BASE YEAR AND AS DEVELOPMENT OCCURS THAT ADDITIONAL INCREMENT ABOVE THE BASE YEAR IS COLLECTED FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ZONE. SO FAR WE'VE HAD TWO HOTELS OPEN UP AND WE'VE GOT A THIRD ONE UNDER CONSTRUCTION RIGHT NOW WITH THIS PROJECT. POSSIBLE VALUE ADDED IS GONNA BE IN THE LOW 30S TO MID 30 RANGE. SO YOU'RE ALREADY SEEING WE'RE ALMOST MATCHING WHAT THE BASE HERE IS AS FAR AS NEW DEVELOPMENT JUST IN A FEW YEARS. AS FAR AS THE KEY OBJECTIVES AND GOALS I WANTED TO HIGHLIGHT JUST A FEW OF THESE ARE ALL THE GOALS IN THERE SO TALKS ABOUT. RELOCATION EXPANSION OF THE BIG TEXAN REDEVELOPMENT OF THE BIG TAX AND SITE RV PARKS RETAIL OUTLETS. BUT I WANT TO HIGHLIGHT SPECIFICALLY AS FAR AS THIS BROAD DAY IS CONCERNED IT FALLS UNDER THE SPECIFIC BALL POINT OF AUTO AND TRUCK SERVICE OUTLETS CONTRIBUTING ADDITIONAL PROPERTY AND SALES TAX REVENUE FOR THE ZONE AND FOR THE CITY. WE'VE ALSO SEEN LIMITED SERVICE HOTELS CONTRIBUTING ADDITIONAL PROPERTY AND HOT TAX REVENUE FOR THE ZONE. THOSE ARE DEEP PATEL'S PROJECTS WITHIN EAST GATEWAY. HERE'S THE BOUNDARY. IT'S JUST SOUTHWEST OF THE AIRPORT BETWEEN EASTERN AND LAKESIDE ROUGHLY AS FAR AS THE PROJECT IS CONCERNED. IT'S WITH JAMAAL ENTERPRISES L.P.. IT'S FOR A TWO TOTEM TRAVEL CENTER APPROXIMATELY EIGHT MILLION IN CONSTRUCTION COSTS SIXTEEN POINT ONE ACRES AND WILL CREATE 75 FULL TIME JOBS BETWEEN THE CONVENIENCE STORE FUNCTION OF THE FACILITY AS WELL AS TWO FAST FOOD STORES LOCATED WITHIN IT WHICH INCLUDES WHICH WHICH AND WENDY'S FRANCHISES. IT'LL HAVE EXTERIOR FILLING AREAS AS YOU'D NORMALLY SEE WITH A TRAVEL CENTER. TRADITIONAL PUMPS AND FRONT DIESEL LANES IN THE BACK AS WELL AS SPECIFIC RV FILLING AREAS FOR THOSE LARGER ARBY'S TO BE ABLE TO PULL THROUGH. IT INCLUDES ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SPACES FOR SEMI TRUCK PARKING FIVE OVERNIGHT RV SPACES AND NINETY SEVEN AUTOMOBILE PARKING SPOTS. AND THEN I'VE INCLUDED HERE SOME OF THE ADDITIONAL MANATEES THAT WILL BE INCLUDED AS FAR AS THE CHILDREN'S PLAYGROUND DOG PARK OUTDOOR SEATING. EXPAND MEN'S AND WOMEN'S RESTROOM. SO THIS IS REALLY GOING TO BE ABOUT TWO TO TWO AND A HALF TIMES LARGER THAN ANY TO OUR FACILITY AND IN THE REGION. SO THIS WILL BE A LARGE FOOTPRINT REALLY GOING TO BE DRAWING A LOT OF NEW TRAFFIC NEW CARS NEW VISIBILITY FOR THE EAST GATEWAY TEARS AND ADDITIONAL REVENUE TO HELP SUPPORT THE GOALS OF THE HERE IS JUST HIGHLIGHTING THE LOCATION FOR THE PROJECT. IT'S THE NORTHWEST CORNER OF LAKESIDE AND I-40. WE'VE GOT A FEW RENDERINGS HERE OF THE FRONT OF THE STORE. YOU CAN SEE WHICH WAS A SIGN.

WENDY'S AS WELL AS A TWO TERM LOGO THERE. AND THEN THE BACKSIDE OF THE STORE AS WELL. I ALSO WANTED TO JUST GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF THE SCOPE OF THE PROJECT. THIS IS THE PRELIMINARY SITE PLAN JUST SHOWING JUST HOW LARGE THIS IS WITH TRUCK PARKING IN THE BACK. YOU CAN SEE THE DIESEL PUMPS IN THE BACK AS WELL. IN THAT VERBIAGE ALL ON THE BOTTOM LEFT OF YOUR SCREEN. THAT'S ACTUALLY ADDITIONAL LAND OWNED BY JAMAAL

[01:55:03]

ENTERPRISES THAT COULD BE FUTURE DEVELOPMENT FOR HOTEL RETAIL. OTHER USES TO SUPPORT THE ZONE SO THAT COULD BE SOMETHING IN THE FUTURE ONCE THIS GETS GETS DEVELOPED AND ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT OF THIS PROJECT. THAT'S A LITTLE DIFFERENT THAN THE PREVIOUS PROJECTS WE'VE HAD AS FAR AS INCENTIVE REQUESTS ARE CONCERNED.

THIS PROJECT DOES HAVE A FORWARD. FOURTEEN HUNDRED FOOT ROAD PUBLIC ROAD TOWARD THE REAR OF THE PROPERTY ON THE NORTH SIDE. THEY'LL HAVE TO BE INCLUDED WITH THIS PROJECT. AS FAR AS ADDITIONAL INFRASTRUCTURE THAT OTHER PROJECTS HAVE NOT HAD TO DEAL WITH IN THE EAST GATEWAY TEARS AS FAR AS THE INCENTIVE PRESENTED TODAY AS PROPOSED BY THE TIERS BOARD WHICH IS MADE UP OF POTTER COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES CITY EMERALD COLLEGE WATER DISTRICT ADM ISC ALL SERVE ON THAT BOARD TO MAKE THESE RECOMMENDATIONS. IT IS FOR A 10 YEAR AGREEMENT. THE FIRST FIVE YEARS WILL BE A REIMBURSEMENT OF 90 PERCENT OF THE INCREMENT THAT THEY PRODUCE WITH THE PROPERTY AND THEN THE LAST FIVE WOULD BE 50 PERCENT REIMBURSEMENT FOR YEAR SIX THROUGH 10. THE REASON THE BOARD IS LOOKED AT TRYING TO LOWER THE LATER YEARS IS THAT THEY DO KNOW WHAT ALL THEY HAVE ON THEIR GOALS AND WHAT THEY'D LIKE TO ACHIEVE AS FAR AS WHAT THEY NEED TO USE THAT REVENUE FOR SO IT'S IMPORTANT FOR THEM TO KEEP IT TO TRY AND KEEP IT 10 YEARS LOWER PERCENTAGES WHERE POSSIBLE TO TRY AND GENERATE THAT REVENUE TO FILL THOSE INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDS AS WELL AS THE ATHLETIC FACILITY. THERE ARE ALSO ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS TO ENSURE THAT THE PROJECT MOVES FORWARD SUCH AS A BUILDING PERMIT REQUIRED WITHIN THREE MONTHS OF COUNCIL APPROVAL OF THE AGREEMENT AND THEN A CERTIFICATE OF OCCUPANCY IS REQUIRED. 18 MONTHS AFTER THAT BUILDING PERMIT ISSUED KNOWING THAT THERE MIGHT BE DELAYS WE DID BUILD IN SOME LANGUAGE TO ALLOW SOME FLEXIBILITY IF THERE ARE CERTAIN DELAYS THAT TAKE PLACE THROUGH THAT PROCESS WHICH WE DEALT WITH RECENTLY WITH. MR. PATEL'S PROJECT. SO WE'RE FAMILIAR WITH THAT PROCESS. THE TIERS BOARD VOTED TO APPROVE THE REQUEST IN NOVEMBER UNANIMOUSLY AND PRESENT TO TODAY. WE TOOK IT TO POTTER COUNTY COMMISSIONERS COURT LAST WEEK TO GET THEIR FEEDBACK AND THEY WERE ALL VERY POSITIVE ABOUT THE PROJECT AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING IT MOVE FORWARD. AND WE HAVE MR. GREG MITCHELL. WE'VE SEEN SO ME HERE IN THE AUDIENCE REPRESENTING THE COMPANY IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS ABOUT THE PROJECT IN PARTICULAR COUNCIL.

DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. MR. MITCHELL ANYTHING YOU WANT TO ADD. NO HE'S DONE YOUR JOB. I WISH IT WAS GOING TO BE A MILLION DOLLARS BUT THAT'S NOT GOING TO BE THE NUMBERS WE'LL BE. WE PUT THAT IN THERE BECAUSE IT'S AN ESTIMATE. AND WITH THE PLANS ARE OUT FOR BID RIGHT NOW AND I'M SORRY TO SAY IT'S GOING TO BE MUCH MORE THAN 8 MILLION DOLLARS SO YOU CAN SEE WHY I'M HERE AT THE CITY ASKING FOR SOME HELP TO GET THIS PROJECT UNDERWAY. WE KNOW IT'S GONNA BE MORE THAN THAT BUT I JUST HAD TO GIVE THE CITY A NUMBER SO I GAVE YOU THAT NUMBER AND WHICH ALL THAT DOES IS CREATE MORE TAXES EVENTUALLY FOR US TO PAY THE CITY TO ACCEPT THAT'S THE WAY WE ARE WE'RE VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS. IT'S BEEN IN IN IN IN Q FOR FOUR OR FIVE YEARS MAINLY NOT BECAUSE OF I'LL SAY THIS IN JERRY'S HONOR NOT BECAUSE THE CITY BECAUSE OF TECH START HAVING ALL THE DIFFERENT THINGS I HAD TO WORK OUT AND THAT'S FINALLY GOTTEN WORKED OUT SO WE'RE RIGHT TO BUILD. THE DODGERS ARE LINED UP READY TO START BULLDOZING EXCITING QUESTIONS. COUNCIL WELL WE WISH YOU WELL. THANK YOU. PROJECT I WILL TELL YOU BECAUSE OF US GOING IN WE'VE ALREADY HAD MULTIPLE INQUIRIES ABOUT THE EXTRA LAND WE HAVE WHETHER IT BE FOR RETAIL RESTAURANTS A CLINIC WE'VE HAD HOTELS AND ALL KINDS OF STUFF SO I THINK WHAT YOU'RE DOING WHETHER IT BE ON OUR PROPERTY OR OTHER PROPERTY IT IS A CATALYST FOR NEW THINGS TO COME IN DOWN THERE. CERTAINLY THAT'S THE INTENT. YEAH YEAH. THE QUESTION BESIDES THE JUST UTILITY OF THE FUNCTION OF THE THE APPEARANCE OF JUST THE IMPROVEMENT ON THE BEAUTY HONG KONG HIGH FORTY I'M GETTING SOME NEW CONSTRUCTION AND SOME THINGS THAT ARE ATTRACTIVE COMING IN FROM THAT GATEWAY. WE'RE EXCITED ABOUT IT. YEAH. THANK YOU. WE WORKED HARD ON THAT. THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. CERTAINLY CERTAINLY YOU KNOW THE QUESTIONS AND I'LL GET TO SAY JARED GELLER THE ONLY GROUP I'VE EVER SEEN THAT CAN MAKE MONEY OFF THE GOLF COURSE I'VE ALWAYS SPENT MONEY ON A GOLF. SOME OF THIS DEGENERATE. WE'RE NOT THERE YET. ALL RIGHT. I THINK WE NEED A MOTION ON ITEM 3 F THEM ON THEIR OWN. YES SIR. WHO REVIEWS HIS REBATES. WHO WOULD NOT REVIEW THE PROJECT COMPLETED THROUGH

[02:00:02]

TAX RELIEF. WHAT'S THE LOGIC. THAT'S PART OF THE DELAY. THE WAY THAT THE TERROR ZONES WORK WHEN IT'S NEW CONSTRUCTION UNTIL IT'S ON ITS SECOND YEAR IT'S GOT A DIFFERENT DESIGNATION AS FAR AS TAX RATE IMPACT. SO THAT FIRST YEAR IT ACTUALLY STILL GOES TO ALL THE VARIOUS ENTITIES. SO WE PUT THAT LANGUAGE IN THERE SO IT STARTS ONCE THE TIER STARTS COLLECTING IT AND THAT'S WHEN THEY GROOM IT START TIME.

THINK THEY'LL GO FOR 10 YEARS. THANK YOU. UNDER ANYTHING ELSE HOWARD I THINK WE'RE READY FOR THE MOTION. MAYOR A MOVE TO APPROVE THE EAST GATEWAY TAX INCREMENT REINVESTMENT ZONE NUMBER TWO DEVELOPER AGREEMENT FOR JAMAAL ENTERPRISES LP TOTEM TRAVEL CENTER PROJECT TO BE LOCATED AT SEVENTY NINE O NINE EAST INTERSTATE 40. THE AGREEMENT IS FOR 90 PERCENT YEARS 1 THROUGH 5 IN 50 PERCENT YEARS 6 13 ANNUAL PROPERTY TAX REBATE FOR 10 YEARS. CIRCULAR MOTION MADE BY COUNCIL MEMBER PANELS SECOND BY COUNCIL MEMBER SMITH.
