D6 Items of Interest Week of May 14, 2018
Highlights: The Common Council will take up the Mayor's veto of the plans and specs for Winnebago St construction on Tuesday. To override the veto requires 14 votes. If you want to weigh in on reconsideration, email firstname.lastname@example.org before 6:30p Tuesday or attend the meeting and register to speak. Please include your address in your email. It is item number 12 on the Council's agenda. If the vote to override the veto fails to get 14 votes, there is no approved project and Engineering staff will work on revising the plans. They will have to present the revised plans to Ped Bike Motor Vehicle Commission, Board of Public Works and the Common Council for adoption. But if the vote to override the veto succeeds, Option 2 will move forward as the Council adopted at the last meeting. See agenda item description below for more info. Here is link to the project page http://www.cityofmadison.com/engineering/projects/winnebago-st-linden-ave-reconstruction
A new use agreement with Big Top Events LLC and funding for Breese Stevens improvements is also on Tuesday's agenda along with CDBG funding for down payment assistance for Winnebago Co-Housing, and budget amendments for Olbrich expansion and Judge Doyle Square garage and retail component.

6:30p room 201 CCB
7. 51065 Amending Section 28.183(8) of the Madison General Ordinances to require that the Plan Commission decide whether minor alterations should be approved if the alderperson of the district and the Director of Planning and Community and Economic Development do not agree on whether the minor alteration should be approved. Sponsors: Marsha A. Rummel
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This amendment requires that that the Plan Commission shall decide whether to approve a request for minor alteration to a conditional use if the Director of Planning and Community and Economic Development and Alderperson of the District disagree about whether a minor alteration should be approved. This language adopts similar language already contained in Sec. 28.098(6)(a), MGO, pertaining to minor alterations in Planned Developments.
My comments: As an alder, I disagreed with the Planning Director about a minor alteration for a conditional use and was quite frustrated when my request to have the Plan Commission review what I thought were several significant alterations was rejected. (See Lehnertz comments for details...). This simple amendment will ensure there is a publicly noticed process to review controversial changes.

CONSIDERATION OF OVERRIDE OF MAYORAL VETO 14 VOTES ARE NEEDED TO OVERRIDE MAYORAL VETO.
If you want to weigh in on reconsideration, email email@example.com before 6:30p Tuesday or attend the meeting and register to speak. Please include your address in your email.
I will ask my colleagues to sustain the Mayor's veto and vote against the override.? I have never seen the Council reject the recommendation of the lead agency (Board of Public Works), Engineering staff, and the alder for a street reconstruction project and no one can recall any Mayor vetoing a street reconstruction project either. It is unprecedented.
No matter what happens with the override vote, construction will likely be delayed due to the late start to the bidding process - either late summer or spring of 2019. I have been working with Engineering staff to add funds to the 2019 capital budget to underground utilities between Sutherland Court and Linden Court.

52. 51427 Authorizing the City to enter into Use Agreement with Big Top Events LLC for the management of concessions, alcohol, events and facility operations at Breese Stevens Stadium for 2019-2028 (2nd Ald. Dist.)
The proposed resolution authorizes the City to enter into a Use Agreement with Big Top Events LLC for the management of concessions, alcohol, events and facility operations at Breese Stevens Stadium for the ten year period of 2019 - 2028. As part of this agreement, the City will manage a capital project and provide a capital contribution of $1,300,000 toward the soccer-related improvements described in Attachment D of the agreement ("Soccer Improvements").
A resolution proposed (Legistar File 51432) requests appropriation amending the 2018 Parks Division Capital Budget to authorize $650,000 in general obligation debt and $650,000 in park impact fee funding for the Soccer Improvements. The annual facility rental revenue ranges from $68,000 in 2019 to $91,000 in 2028, increasing $2,000 to $3,000 per year. The total facility rental payments for the ten year period are $785,000.
The City will save approximately $34,000 annually in utility costs which will be reimbursed by Big Top Events LLC, bringing the total value of the ten year agreement to approximately $1,100,000. If the agreement is extended, the value to the City would be another $170,000 in utility savings and $530,000 in facility use fees over the five year period. Should the agreement not be authorized, there will be additional staff costs associated with the day-to-day operation of the facility. ?
53. 51432 SUBSTITUTE - Amending the 2018 Parks Division Capital Budget to authorize $650,000 in general obligation debt and $650,000 in park impact fee funding to the Breese Stevens Field project.

56. 51484 Authorizing an Amendment to the 2018 Capital Budget to Design and Construct the Above Grade Parking, Retail and Slab ("the Podium") on the Block 88 Public Garage and Directing Further Actions as a Component of the Judge Doyle Development Project.
See also the Block 88 memo in legistar. https://madison.legistar.com/View.ashx?M=F&ID=6222333&GUID=3A1C9448-2FEE-4885-9C7C-D718650AD9CC
The 2018 adopted capital budget includes $41,791,659 for construction of the Judge Doyle Public Parking Structure (MUNIS project #11471), $1 million for a bicycle center (MUNIS project #11160), and $1.3 million for city fleet stalls in the public parking structure (MUNIS project #11319). Total funding authorized for the project, including funds already expended, is $45,965,112. This includes $19.1 million from Parking Utility Reserves, $24 million from TID 25, $2.3 million GO debt and $565,322 from a federal TIGER grant. Based on accepted bids for the public parking garage and the estimated cost of building out the bicycle center, the total cost for the project is estimated at $39,411,061. As such, approximately $6.6 million of expenditure authority remains unused in the project budget. The unused expenditure authority could increase depending on the amount of the construction budget contingency ($2.4 million) that might be utilized in constructing the public parking structure and bicycle center.
As of December 31, 2016, the Parking Utility had reserves of $34.4 million. The Parking Utility is adding approximately $5.5 million to its reserves annually. Construction of the Capitol East Parking Garage and the Judge Doyle Parking Garage, including the amount proposed to be appropriated in this resolution, will reduce Parking Utility Reserves by $27.1 million ($3.6 million for Capitol East and $23.5 million for Judge Doyle).
Under this resolution, $4.4 million would be appropriated from Parking Utility reserves to increase the total project budget to $50.4 million. The $4.4 million would be added to the estimated unused expenditure authority in the project of $6.6 million, to provide a total of approximately $11 million. The estimated hard and soft costs of completing first floor retail space, two above-grade parking decks and associated access ramps, as well as a load transfer slab on top of the structure (together called "the podium") that can serve as the foundation for future development (e.g., office, apartment), is $11 million.
According to the City's Development Agreement with Beitler Real Estate Services (see Exhibit B - Ground Lease Agreements Term Sheet - of the Development Agreement), Beitler will pay $755,000 to lease Blocks 88 ($180,000) and 105 ($575,000), with these amounts escalating by 5% every 5 years. In addition, the Parking Utility could realize net revenues of approximately $300,000 annually from retail leases and the above-grade parking stalls. Under this resolution, these revenues are dedicated to replenishing the $11 million allocated for the cost of constructing the podium that was to have been paid by the developer. Based on this revenue stream, the $11 million would be repaid to the parking utility Reserve Fund in approximately 12 years, assuming an interest rate of 2.5%. The repayment approach proposed in this resolution is similar to that approved by the Council in March 2017 (see RES-17-00214 - Legistar #46425).
INTRODUCTION OF NEW BUSINESS FOR REFERRAL WITHOUT DEBATE ORDINANCES
62. 51476 Amending Sec. 1.08(4) of the Madison General Ordinances to allow the Traffic Engineer to issue citations for violations of Sec. 10.05, the occupancy of rights-of-way ordinance. Sponsors: Ledell Zellers and Marsha A. Rummel
DRAFTER'S ANALYSIS: This ordinance amends the citation authority of the Traffic Engineering Division in order to allow inspectors from that unit to issue citations for violating the City's right-of-way occupancy ordinance, Sec. 10.05, MGO. Sec. 10.05 regulates right-of-way excavations, as well as the use of the right-of-way by utilities. Under that section, those seeking to excavate in the right-of-way must obtain a Permit to Excavate, and abide by the conditions of that permit. That ordinance and permit is administered by the City Engineer. The Traffic Engineer, meanwhile, administers Sec. 10.055, the Street Occupancy Ordinance, which ordinance regulates the short term use of the City's rights-of-ways. It is not uncommon for a single project site to be subject to both a Permit to Excavate in the Right-of-Way and a Street Occupancy Permit. By expanding the Traffic Engineer's enforcement authority to include Sec. 10.05, inspectors of the Traffic Engineering Division will be able to enforce not only the requirements of temporary street occupancy permits, but the requirements of right-of-way excavation permits. This additional enforcement authority will save administrative costs and lead to a more efficient response.

REMINDER: Final Yard Waste Round Starts May 14
Thursday, May 10, 2018 - 4:12pm
The Streets Division will perform one more curbside yard waste collection round. Every resident in Madison will have one final opportunity to have yard waste collected from the curb this spring.
The final round will begin on Monday, May 14.?
On May 14, crews will begin collecting yard waste from the area of the city that receives Monday refuse collection. After each street within that district receives their final collection opportunity, collection crews will rotate into the Tuesday district and provide each street with their final collection opportunity. The Tuesday district will be followed by the Wednesday district and then concluding with the Thursday and Friday districts.
The spring collection period will end when the Friday collection districts receives their final curbside yard waste collection opportunity. Curbside yard waste pickup will not be performed again this year until the start of the autumn leaf collection season.
Before placing yard waste to the curb for pickup, go to www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste and click the Pickup Schedule button.
If your neighborhood is marked "Pickup Pending" on the map, place your yard waste out for collection as soon as possible because crews will be around soon.
If your neighborhood is marked "Crews Working," it may be too late to take advantage of the collection round as crews may have already serviced your neighborhood, so residents should instead take the yard waste to a drop-off site.
If your neighborhood is marked "Season Over," do not place yard waste to the curb, and instead take it to a drop-off site.
Be sure to check the pickup schedule on the website regularly so this final chance for curbside pickup is not missed. The map is updated daily when crews are deployed.
The drop-off sites are located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. on the southwest side, 4602 Sycamore Ave. on the east side, and 402 South Point Rd. on the far west side. Please note that the South Point Rd. site only accepts yard waste. All three sites are open 8:30am to 4:30pm seven days a week, and until 8:00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. These hours will remain in effect until Sunday, December 2.
For additional information regarding yard waste and collection guidelines, residents can visit www.cityofmadison.com/yardwaste, call the yard waste hotline at 608-267-2088, or contact the Streets Division office that services your home. Residents east of S. Park Street can call 608-246-4532. Residents west of S. Park Street can call 608-266-4681.
