Recycling Recovery Special Charge at Common Council on Tuesday

You may have seen the news that on Monday the Finance Committee voted to move forward with a recycling resource recovery special charge and that Common Council will be voting on a new city ordinance to allow the enactment of this charge (see Common Council agenda item #93 below in City Meetings of Interest).

It's important to note the following:

  • Individual properties will be charged between $4.10-$4.30/month ($49.20-$51.60/year).

  • These charges had already been approved in the 2022 budget back in November of 2021 (Tuesday's vote will just codify the charges).

  • If this charge is not approved by the Common Council, we will have to make up the $1.5M difference in this year's operating budget (and $3M next year) through another mechanism.

If you're interested in learning more about this issue and our associated budget struggles, the Finance Committee talked about this in great detail on Monday. Here's the video and presentation.

I am very sympathetic to the fact that our property taxes and fees continue to rise, although our mill rate increases for city services have not increased nearly as much as you might think. I also understand that this is a regressive charge that will be more difficult to pay for lower income folks and those on fixed income. Our limited methods of addressing the regressive nature of the charge are well discussed in the Finance Committee video. Because the state legislature has tied the hands of municipalities by significantly reducing state aid and instituting "levy limits", there is only so much room in our budget. If this charge is not approved and we need to make up the budget difference elsewhere, I would appreciate hearing from you regarding what City services you are willing to see reduced or eliminated, understanding that will also likely lead to some city staff losing their jobs. 

Red Rock Rooftop Terrace Design

Summary of Neighborhood Meeting on Proposed Rooftop Terrace at Red Rock Saloon

On April 12 I hosted a neighborhood meeting to hear about Red Rock Saloon's plans to construct a rooftop terrace on the second floor atop their existing nightclub and bar at 222 W. Gorham Street. The proposed terrace would be accessed from current second floor interior spaces via two new garage doors and two standard doors. The deck would be approximately 1,450 square feet and its occupancy is estimated at about 90 patrons. The applicant plans to have the terrace open during their current operating hours and have no exterior amplified music. Red Rock Saloon is required to seek a Conditional Use Permit for this outdoor area from the Plan Commission.

You can watch the recorded neighborhood meeting here. The only attendees were the proposal team and me, but I have received input from MPD and a nearby neighbor who is concerned about noise. While I believe that the applicant is interested in addressing many of the concerns that were brought up at the meeting, I am hoping that there will be a detailed management plan for the terrace forthcoming. The applicant has agreed to shut the garage doors late night to keep interior noise from spilling out and impacting nearby residential properties and has suggested they would close the deck at 1:30am rather than 2:00am. There is likely to be further discussion of these matters at Plan Commission, likely in June.

You are welcome to email me at district2@cityofmadison.com with any thoughts or concerns.

Madison Senior Center Courtyard Public Meeting

The Madison Parks Division seeks public input on improvements to the Madison Senior Center courtyard at 330 West Mifflin St. The courtyard is scheduled for transfer to the Parks Division as a public park and requires renovation. Parks will hold a series of public outreach sessions to gather community input on the desired amenities for the space.

A virtual project kick-off meeting will be held on Thursday, April 21 at 6:30 p.m.

You can join the virtual meeting using your computer, smartphone or tablet, or you can listen in via telephone. You will receive login information after registering here.

The project team will review existing plaza conditions and gather input from area residents and future park users on potential improvements. More information on this exciting addition to the Madison Parks system, including project schedule and pending meeting dates will be shared on the project website.

Crazy Legs Course Map

Two Special Events to Close Streets in State Street/Langdon Area on April 29 & 30

On Friday, April 29th, the 600 block of Lake Street (between Langdon and Lake Mendota) and Mendota Court will both be closed from approximately 10am until 11pm for All Campus Party's annual Lake Street Bash sponsored by the Wisconsin Alumni Student Board. The event will be allowed to have amplified music from 2pm to 8pm. For more information, contact Gracie Regalia at gregala721@gmail.com.

On Saturday, April 30th, the annual Crazylegs Classic will close several downtown and campus area streets including these streets in District 2:

  • State Street between Lake and W. Gilman Streets
  • W. Gilman between State and Carroll Streets
  • Carroll Street between W. Gilman and Langdon
  • Langdon between Carroll and Lake Streets

See the map above for the race and walk route through the downtown area.

The route will start at Lake Street and UW's Library Mall with Mall setup starting on Friday, April 29 at 2:00pm. The course setup will start at 6am on Saturday, April 30, with the run/walk starting at 9:50am.

4/11/22 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
 
Agenda Item 93
Creating Section 4.097 of the Madison General Ordinances to Create a Resource Recovery Special Charge.
Recent Legislative History
4/11/22 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
Sponsors: Satya V. Rhodes-Conway, Keith Furman, Patrick W. Heck and Regina M. Vidaver
Fiscal Note
This ordinance would create a new special charge that would be imposed upon curbside recycling customers. Implementation of the special charge will occur annually by separate resolution. It is anticipated that the special charge will be collected as part of the Municipal Service Bill and that 2022 revenue will total approximately $1,500,000, with an increase to approximately $3,000,000 in 2023. The costs of implementing the special charge will be included in the Tyler Utility Billing project. No additional appropriation is required.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS:  This ordinance creates a resource recovery special charge that would be imposed against all properties that receive City curbside recycling services, consistent with the recommendation of the Common Council in the City's 2022 adopted operating budget to create a special charge to support the costs of the City's recycling program.  The City's overall costs of its recycling program, including the costs of collecting, sorting and recycling, have increased over time.  This special charge will allow the City to recover all or a portion of the costs of providing these services from its recycling customers.  This special charge will be imposed only against those properties receiving curbside recycling services, which includes most properties with 8 or fewer residential units, along with some small commercial properties.  This special charge will not be imposed against properties who use private recycling services, including larger residential parcels, most commercial properties, and all industrial properties.  Following enactment, a resource recovery special charge policy will have to be approved by the City.  This policy will direct how the charge is determined and imposed against parcels receiving this service.  The actual amount of the special charge will be set annually by the Common Council by separate resolution.
Note: You can also read the draft policy (as opposed to this proposed ordinance change) that gives more details on the special charge. More discussion is also available in District 2 Updates above.
 
Agenda Item 95
Authorizing a $62,225 contract with Madison's Central Business Improvement District (BID) to fund the continuation of the Downtown Activities Program focused on existing plazas around the Capitol Square and State Street (2nd, 4th and 8th AD.)

4/11/22 FINANCE COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
Fiscal Note
This resolution authorizes an agreement between the City of Madison and Madison's Central Business Improvement District (BID) for programming at locations on State Street and the Capitol Square. The Economic Development Division's 2022 Adopted Operating Budget includes $62,225 to support the (BID) programming. No additional City appropriation is required.
 
Agenda Item 96

REPORT OF LANDLORD AND TENANT ISSUES COMMITTEE
 
Agenda Item 105
Amending Section 32.04, Relating to Rent Abatement Procedures.
Recent Legislative History
3/17/22 LANDLORD AND TENANT ISSUES COMMITTEE    RECOMMEND TO COUNCIL TO ADOPT - REPORT OF OFFICER
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: Under current Ordinances, an eligible tenant must seek rent abatement by filing a petition for rent abatement with the Building Inspection Division. Under this proposal, the Building Inspection Division orders the landlord to pay rent abatement, if the landlord fails to correct rent impairing violations by the original due date. The landlord has the right to appeal the Building Inspection Unit's order to pay abatement to the tenant by filing a request for a hearing on the order to pay rent abatement. If the Landlord files a hearing request, a hearing is held before the hearing examiner to determine whether the landlord did not fail to correct the violations, the landlord was not responsible for the violations or the tenant unreasonably refused entry to the landlord for the purpose of correcting the violations.

Agenda Item 115
Amending Section 13.18 of the Madison General Ordinances to Update the Lead Water Service Line Replacement Ordinance.
Legislative History 3/24/22    Attorney's Office Referred for Introduction
Finance Committee (5/16/22); Water Utility Board (4/26/22); Common Council (5/24/22)
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution would modify the requirements and payout of the Water Utility Lead Water Service Line Replacement Ordinance. Under current policy, the program pays out $1,500. The resolution would increase the payout to $2,500 for each lead service line replaced and modify certain application requirements.
The Water Utility funds this program with revenue from leasing water towers to be used as cell towers. In 2021, the budget for tower revenues was $260,000, and $288,500 was received (MUNIS 86547200-43522-00000). The 2021 expense associated with this program was $26,624. No additional appropriation is required.
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance amends the Lead Water Service Line Replacement Ordinance. The reimbursement program payment is being increased to $2,500, and the program submittal requirements are being updated to require the submittal of three bids from licensed plumbers. In addition, the Water Utility will be required to inspect the service replacement following completion. Moreover, this ordinance is being amended to specifically provide that disconnection or refusal of service is a potential penalty in the event of non-compliance with the lead water service line replacement requirements.

Legislative History
4/11/22 STREET USE STAFF COMMISSION    Referred for Introduction
Vending Oversight Committee (4/27/22), Common Council (5/10/22)
Fiscal Note
The proposed resolution authorizes Special Vending Approvals for 2021 special events. Specifically, this resolution authorizes temporary invalidation of vending licenses for licensees assigned to sites located within the special event perimeter for the duration of the special event; authorization of event sponsors to select vendors for the event and requiring that event sponsors obtain a Special Event Vending License; and suspension of rules regarding handcrafted goods and personally prepared food for the 19 events included in the attachment.
Under MGO 9.13(2)(c), Special Event Vending Licenses are issued for event vendors in the name of the event sponsor. Approval of this resolution will result in $8,000 in City revenue from Special Event Vending Licenses. Six event sponsors do not sell food or goods and, therefore, are not required to purchase a license. Other actions authorized in this resolution do not result in a fiscal impact.
In general, vendors pay an annual fee for their licenses which come with the caveat that their license may be invalidated up to 10 times per year. The invalidation of licenses due to the special events does not impact revenue.
