Josh Jones asked for discussion on the Lauber Municipal Law Firm invoice. He said that he talked to Jeff Deane, City Attorney, earlier. He asked him to come to just one meeting a month to save on costs. He also asked that all City staff go through the City Manager before contacting the City Attorney and he can decide if he needs to be contacted. Josh asked that all City Commissioners also go through Jeff Hancock, City Manager, before contacting the City Attorney. He asked that any City advisory boards go through the City Manager also first.

Jeff Deane said that he can come to the first meeting of the month. He said that he can be on call for the second meeting and be available if needed.

Josh said that this can be reevaluated in a month and see how it is going.

Josh also asked about the Schneider Electric project. He asked if the Commission can see where we are on our prior bills and what they are now since this project is final.

Susan will find out how they calculate their savings and compare it to the last two years and bring this back to them.

L. Watts moved to approve the Consent Agenda. J. Jones seconded. J. Jones, L. Watts and R. Nichols voted aye. K. Allen and P. Allen voted no. Motion carried 3-2.

APPROVED CONSENT AGENDA.

Public Comment:

(Sign up required. Comments on any topic not on the agenda and limited to 5 minutes per person, at Commission discretion)

Michael J. Hoyt – Mr. Hoyt said that you have heard this before, but he is going to bring it up again. He told them that their meeting yesterday was a K.O.M.A. violation. You used the personnel exception, and the personnel exception cannot have words added to it like reviewing resumes. He printed and handed out several Attorney General opinions. (He did not give the Clerk a copy). He referenced that Commissioner Allen once said that if we’re going to go down, you’re going to go down with us. The Attorney General doesn’t quite see it that way. He said that he highlighted a letter from Ms. Mendoza to him that states Mr. Deane is not a member of the public body and the meeting with K.O.M.A. cannot be found to have violated its provisions. If you want to accept bad advice and pay for it, he’s the one that is going to walk away. You’re the one going down. Page 2 he has highlighted and put in plain language and understanding, ordinary meaning says that personnel has been defined in Webster’s dictionary as a body of employees that employ some services. So, instead of trying to work around the law, how about trying to work in the law. If you want to have discussion of your resumes, just call them candidate 1 through candidate 100, if that’s what you’re trying to protect. What you should be showing to the voters is the process that you’re going through. You came in here, turned the cameras off and closed the doors and you could have been hiring Dr. Nichols’ brother. We don’t know whether you’re interested in education or experience. Maybe we would have some input on that. You don’t have to divulge anyone’s name. He’s sure the search firm would prefer to leave those things quiet, so they don’t get poached from them. You can speak in general terms and still go through the process of being open and transparent like K.O.M.A. would want you to do.

Ordinance No. 31 – He gave them notes as soon as he got certification of the petition. Now we are running up against an election. He thought they would do the right thing, and leave the money in one spot, and revoke Ordinance No. 31. He understands that we have spent $3,500 in ballots but why not spend another $10,000 and do the right thing. Think of the politics and objects of it. You drag all of the voters in on the 5th of January to vote on something that they may or may not understand. He hopes that they understand it and vote no. Then you will drag them in again on March 5th and try to get them to vote on a sales tax which will be even a harder sale as this is not a tax ordinance 31. We just want you to keep the money where it came into and spend it where it came into. He knows that Commissioner Allen has posted a couple of sewer failures. Let’s spend some money on the sewers instead of letting them go. Keep the money where it is – it’s not a tax. We probably need it for the streets and the parks. You might be standing there on March 5th with two $15,000 bills for special elections. Think about that.

Advisory Boards – He removed his name from the Airport Advisory Board for no other reason than he is coming up with an initiative with the County and he would like to with the City – to strengthen and give our advisory boards structure. The Airport Advisory Board met yesterday for the first time in a year. With all we have going on out there, and they haven’t met in a year. I would think that all boards should have five minutes before you with their Chairman. He said that he provided a 90 page booklet provided by the E.P.A. It is a generic book. Maybe you need an advisory board coordinator to get the agendas going in the right direction.

K. Allen said it would be nice, once a month, for a liaison from each board to report to them.

K. Allen asked Jeff Deane about interviewing candidates out in public.

Jeff Deane said that the Attorney General’s opinion specifically states that personnel matters, the hiring and firing and discipline of employees is covered. If you are trying to hire an employee that is specifically a personnel matter and that interpretation is covered by the Attorney General’s opinion. The Attorney General has the statutory and constitutional rights to interpret a law. It states that the hiring of employees falls under exception number 1.

Scott Johnson – Mr. Johnson said that he spoke with Frank Halsey today regarding the building at 10 N. National. He asked if the City has a LandBank in place?

Susan Bancroft said yes they do.

Scott that he handed them a paper regarding the urgent shape of the building. He said that Mr. Halsey is still on board. He understands the efforts in trying to sell the building, but it is his strong belief, that if we don’t do something right away, we won’t have a building to save or sell. He believes with extreme urgency, the building needs some structure work done immediately. It may be in the best interest of the building and Mr. Halsey to move forward on the transfer of ownership now, so we can all save this historic building.

Scott also asked that a port-a-potty be placed at the skate park as well as a bench.

Interim City Manager Report and Comments: Jeff Hancock stated that he moved his comments towards the top of the agenda. He provided a written report of all the things he has done in the last three weeks. The Commission and the public knows what he is doing. It’s not just a three day a week job as he is taking calls on Thursday and Friday. He appointed Allyson Turvey as the Acting Zoning Administrator to fill in for Nate. We developed a new street cut process. This puts some teeth into the process. He will send them out a copy of this new process. It will go before the Plumbing Board before it is implemented.

Kevin Allen said that he would like to look at this before it is implemented.

Lindsey Watts asked if they could look at it at the next work session.

Jeff Hancock said that we need to set priorities on what to look at for our work sessions.

Pete said that we have a good ordinance concerning street cuts in place. We’ve never enforced it or taught it to the workers. Pete thanked Jeff Hancock for his efforts since he has been here.

Old Business: None

Appearances: None

New Business:

  1. Municipal Advisory Services Agreement – Stifel – Susan Bancroft, Director of Finance, introduced Bret Shogren and Stan Jones of Stifel, Inc. This company replaced the previous company called George K. Baum, which is the City’s financial advisor.

Bret Shogren said that he is officed in Wichita and Stan Jones is officed in Kansas City. He hopes to assist with refinancing some of the General Obligation bonds that the City has. Last year when he was here he was with George K. Baum and Company. Last year, Stifel acquired their firm. They are operating under Stifel. This company asked them to renew the agreement under their new name. The terms and conditions are the same as well as the fees. This agreement asks for Stifel to be the financial advisor of record at a cost of $250.00 per hour and for bond issues at a $10,000 minimum fee.

J. Jones moved to approve the agreement with Stifel for the City’s financial advisor of record. L. Watts seconded. All voted aye.

APPROVED THE AGREEMENT WITH STIFEL FOR THE CITY’S FINANCIAL ADVISOR OF RECORD.

  1. Refinancing of Bonds – Gilmore & Bell – Approval of Resolution and all supporting documentation for the Mayor to sign – Bret Shogren, informed the Commission that they are here to assist with the refinancing of the City General Obligation bonds. He shared the trend of interest rates. We are very near the lowest interest rates in 30 years. When rates are low it is an opportunity to sell bonds. The City currently has six General Obligation bonds which are from 2009, 2010-A, 2011-A, 2011-B, 2012-A, and 2012-B. Those have outstanding interest rates between 1.6% and 4.1%. Current market conditions show that we can pay off those loans with a 0.67% true interest cost which would reflect a gross savings of $77,465.17. This is roughly about $15,500 per year over the next five years. Industry standards show that the City would benefit by refinancing these bonds. The bond documents are drafted by Gilmore & Bell. The bond date bid would be February 2nd, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. He would appear again at the February 2nd, 2021 City Commission meeting and notify the Commission of the interest rates that were submitted in the bids. Approval of the Resolution is needed to proceed along with the sale documents.

L. Watts moved to approve Resolution No. 20-2020 authorizing the offering for sale of General Obligation Bonds, Series 2021-A, of the City of Fort Scott, Kansas. J. Jones seconded. All voted aye.

APPROVED RESOLUTION NO. 20-2020 AUTHORIZING THE OFFERING FOR SALE OF GENERAL OBLIGATION BONDS, SERIES 2021-A OF THE CITY OF FORT SCOTT, KANSAS.

  1. Sales Tax Resolution – Approval of either Option 1 or Option 2 and all supporting documentation for the Mayor to sign – Susan Bancroft, Director of Finance, informed the Commission that they met on December 8th, 2020 for a work session regarding the renewal of the .5% sales tax. There were two options discussed and it was determined to move forward with a special election to be held on March 5th, 2021. Option 1 include the .5% sales tax renewal would be for five (5) years with 90% allocated for street improvements, sidewalks, bike lanes, and curb and gutter with these proceeds to be designated to a specific transportation sales tax fund, and 10% of the proceeds to be used for parks and community facilities with a designated community sales tax fund.

Option 2 could read 10% of the proceeds could be used for parks, community facilities, and health care services and improvements with proceeds designated to a community sales tax fund.

Discussion was held regarding the two options.

L. Watts moved to approve that Option 1 be approved and to approve Resolution No. 21-2020 authorizing and providing for the calling of a special election in the City of Fort Scott, Kansas, for the purpose of submitting to the electors of the City the question of imposing a one-half percent (0.5%) city-wide retailers’ sales tax and providing for the giving of notice of said election.

  1. Water Rate Increase – Approval of Ordinance No. 3570 – Susan Bancroft, Director of Finance, informed the Commission that this ordinance increases the water rates by 5% for 2021. This increase is due to the River Intake Project. There will also need to be an increase next year.

The Fire Department received a Fort Scott Area Community Foundation Grant recently in the amount of $2,500 to go towards the rehab of the 20 year old fire safety trailer which is used at area schools to teach children about fire safety. This grant will fund part of this project, but more funds are needed. She asked for approval to apply for a Timken Foundation grant for the remainder of the required funding. Tinken grants require a minimum request of 10,000, so in addition to the safety trailer rehab, they are requesting $5,000 in CPR Training Program Materials, and $3,000 in ALICE Training Equipment. The total grant request for Timken Foundation is in the amount of $10,500.

L. Watts moved to approve to apply for the Timken Grant in the amount of $10,500. J. Jones seconded. All voted aye.

  1. Fuel Flow Fee Agreement – AG Spraying Company – Approval for the Mayor to sign the agreement – This was removed from the agenda per the City Manager.

  1. Donation of Fire Truck – Michael Miles, Deputy Fire Chief, informed the Commission that before them tonight is approval to donate the 1991 pumper truck that is now out of service. This pumper truck was taken out of service after the delivery of our new pumper truck back in the beginning of 2020. A letter was sent out to all Bourbon County Fire Districts in August and we received letters of interest from all of the fire districts. This letter was sent to Garland Fire District, Scott Township Fire, and District 3 Fire. Garland Fire District can use this truck and immediately place it into service. They have the space to station this truck and have plans to build a future station to help their resident’s ISO ratings. That would lower the cost of insurance for residents of Garland. Garland also has mutual aid agreements with county fire departments including Scott Township. This truck would be available for them for to request assistance.

Scott Township would like this apparatus to potentially use around the area of Lake Fort Scott. They currently do not have an area established to house this truck if awarded. This would also reduce a major expense from having to purchase a truck to house at a future location.

District 3 is in dire need of replacing a 1978 Fire Engine and could use this apparatus as a major upgrade for their fleet and reduce a major expense of purchasing one.

Michael said that he and the Fire Chief met and believe that at this time Garland Fire would be best suited to be awarded this pumper truck. Garland can immediately use this truck. With upcoming future purchases, the other two districts will be possibly awarded other used trucks that the Fire Department has.

J. Jones moved to recommend that Garland Rural Fire District be awarded this pumper truck. L. Watts seconded. All voted aye.

APPROVED TO AWARD THE USED PUMPER TRUCK TO GARLAND RURAL FIRE DISTRICT.
