RESOLUTION NO. 991
RESOLUTION REQUESTING JEFFERSON COUNTY BOARD TO
FINANCIALLY SUPPORT REPAIRS TO THE INDIANFORD DAM
WHEREAS, the City of Fort Atkinson is about to commit to $1.3 million to development of the downtown area adjacent to the Rock River, and
WHEREAS, private development along the riverbank is estimated at $16 million, and
WHEREAS, the City had conducted a study of the condition of the river wall through downtown, and
WHEREAS, plans and specifications are being prepared for bid letting for river wall repairs, and
WHEREAS, Federal, State, and local monies are being used as all agencies see the importance of maintaining the river wall, and
WHEREAS, the Rock River is a Federal nominee for designation as an American Heritage Riverway, and
WHEREAS, the Rock River is designated as a State Statute Urban Riverway, and
WHEREAS, stewardship funds have been applied for to construct a riverwalk along the banks of the Rock River in downtown, and
WHEREAS, the Fort Atkinson Beautification Council and Chamber of Commerce have gone on record supporting repair of the Dam, and
WHEREAS, a recent University of Wisconsin study estimated that removal of the Dam would reduce the value of the lake property affected by the Dam by more than $23 million, and
WHEREAS, the Wisconsin State Journal on Sunday, April 9, 2000 stated that in their opinion, the solution lies in a cooperative management plan for the Dam, the plan makes sense and the environmental damage that would be caused by removing the Dam outweighs any benefits, and
WHEREAS, Jefferson County is starting to reap the rewards of promoting tourism, and
WHEREAS, if the Dam is removed, the low level of the river and the lake will eliminate or vastly reduce the attractiveness and recreational use of these waterways, and
WHEREAS, a flourishing downtown providing commerce provides additional State and County sales tax.
NOW, THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the City Council, representing the citizens of Fort Atkinson, strongly urge the Jefferson County Board to enter into a Section 66.30 Agreement with Rock and Dane Counties to repair and maintain in the future the Indianford Dam, and to budget the Counties prorated share of the costs in their 2001 budget.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the City Manager of the City of Fort Atkinson submit a copy of said Resolution to all County Board members as well as the County Administrator.
City Manager Wilmet stated that this Resolution No. 991 has been prepared in support of repairing and maintaining the Indianford Dam. The City Manager stated that he believes most of the facts, informational meetings and opinions have been expressed within. The Jefferson County Board will need to act soon on joining a cooperative management plan for the Dam with Rock and Dane Counties. He further stated that based on the City's plan for downtown redevelopment, property tax shifting that would occur, recreational activities and aesthetics, the impact on removing the Dam would be devastating on the City.
Cm. Zastrow, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to adopt Resolution No. 991 and to strongly urge Jefferson County to put monies in the 2001 budget to support the repair and maintenance of the Indianford Dam. The motion further stated that a copy of this resolution should be submitted to all County Board members.
On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.

City Manager Wilmet reported to the Council that after deliberation at the Planning Commission a motion to annex the property with a zoning of R-2 failed on a 3-3 tie vote and a motion to annex the area and zone R-1 also failed on a 3-3 tie vote. The City Manager further reported that the Planning Commission stated that they were interested in seeing a plan developed for the entire area instead of just the four lots in question.
The City Manager stated that the Council had a couple of options. The Council could deny this request; they could accept the request for annexation with a zoning recommendation or they could send this request back to the Planning Commission for further discussion.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Johnston, moved to accept the request for annexation by James & John Hedrick for the area on the end of the extension of Highland Avenue with a zoning of R-1 and Ward 7 with a public hearing to be held at the next City Council meeting.
Cm. Johnston stated that he felt there was a natural boundary here to accept these lots without the rest of the area because the utilities could only extend to these lots and not the rest of the area for possibly many years.
The motion carried on a voice vote.
(d) RECOMMENDATION FROM PLANNING COMMISSION TO DENY THE REZONING REQUEST ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE EXTENSION OF HIGHLAND AVENUE EAST OF SOUTH MAIN STREET FROM R-1 TO R-2.

(e) REVIEW AND APPROVE MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING FOR DESIGN CONCEPTS FOR SHERMAN AVENUE PROJECT (2005).
City Manager Wilmet stated that before the Council this evening was a Memorandum of Understanding for the Sherman Avenue Project that is scheduled for construction in 2005. The memorandum covers the design concepts of the project, i.e. project length, roadway width, location of parking, sidewalks, property acquisition, traffic signals, landscaping, etc. The memorandum does contain cost estimates for the two design options, but does not commit the City to any cost sharing at this time. That will be handled with the project agreement at a later date.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve the Memorandum of Understanding for design concepts for Sherman Avenue Project (2005) and to authorize the appropriate City Officials to sign the document. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
(f) REVIEW AND APPROVE CHANGE ORDER NO. 1 FOR RIVER WALL STABILIZATION PROJECT.
Mr. Bob Gundlach of Earth Tech Inc. addressed the Council to state that when the contract for the plans and specifications for the river wall stabilization project were put together, it was assumed that information contained in the study report would be sufficient to base the plans on. There was no time or money included to address any storm drainage issues. Once the field investigations began, it became apparent that additional field survey was needed to more accurately locate the surface and underground and to address drainage issues along the river wall. He further stated that the attached change order addresses the additional time required to survey and plot this information.
The City Manager stated that in addition it also has time included for developing the easement descriptions for the temporary easements needed. The total dollar amount is $5,130 on an initial contract amount of $21,798.
Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to accept and approve Change Order No. 1 for the river wall stabilization project. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.
(a) REVIEW AND AWARD BIDS FOR 2000 STREET PROGRAM.
Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve B.R. Amon & Sons bid for the 2000 Street Program in an amount not to exceed $203,576.56. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.

In the event that the City exercises its prepayment privilege, if any, then no such direct annual tax shall be included on the tax rolls for the prepayments made and the amount of direct annual tax hereinabove levied shall be reduced accordingly for the year or years with respect to which said note was prepaid.
In each of said levy years, the direct annual tax so levied shall be carried into the tax rolls each year and shall be collected in the same manner and at the same time as other taxes of the City for such years are collected, provided, that the amount of tax carried into the tax roll may be reduced in any year by the amount of any surplus in the debt service account for the note.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the proceeds of said note shall be used solely for the purposes for which it is issued, but may be temporarily invested until needed in legal investments, provided that no such investment shall be in such a manner as would cause said note to be an "arbitrage bond" within the meaning of Section 148 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, or the Regulations of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue thereunder, and an officer of the City, charged with the responsibility for issuing the note, shall certify by use of an arbitrage certificate that, on the basis of the facts, estimates and circumstances in existence on the date of the delivery of the note, it is not expected that the proceeds will be used in a manner that would cause said note to be an "arbitrage bond."
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the projects financed by the note and their ownership, management and use will not cause the note to be a "private activity bond" within the meaning of Section 141 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, and that the City shall comply with the provisions of the Code to the extent necessary to maintain the tax-exempt status of the interest on the note.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the City Clerk shall keep records for the registration and for the transfer of the note.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the City officials are hereby authorized and directed, so long as said note is outstanding, to deliver to the Lender any audit statement or other financial information the Lender may reasonably request and to discuss its affairs and finances with the Lender.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that said note shall be delivered to the Lender on or after the date of said note, upon receipt of the total principal amount of the loan evidenced thereby, plus accrued interest, if any, to date of delivery, provided that, if this is a refinancing, the refunding note shall be immediately exchanged for the note being refinanced.

He stated that the City has been presented with the opportunity to purchase this lifesaving device at a reduced cost and at matching dollars through the Fort Atkinson Memorial Health Service Foundation. The total price of this project would be $30,000 with $15,000 being provided for by the Hospital Foundation, leaving $15,000 to be raised by the community. These units would be made available to the City departments on signing a commitment with the Hospital Foundation. He further stated that it would be recommended that five of the defibrillators be placed in the Police Department squad cars, one in the new Police Department, two in the Fire Department first response units, and one in the Municipal Building and one located in the Senior Center.
