    1. ADOPTION OF 2001 CITY, SEWER AND WATER BUDGETS.
    2.  

      City Manager Wilmet reviewed several charts and graphs that had been developed to explain the 2001 City, Sewer, and Water budgets.

    City Manager first spoke on where the 2001 revenues are derived. He stated that for the 2001 budget 62 cents of every dollar will come from Fort Atkinson property taxes. This compares to 63 cents for the year 2000 budget and 59 cents per dollar for the 1999 budget. The second largest source of revenue is from state aids which will make up 28 cents of every dollar for the 2001 revenues. This compares to 27 cents per dollar for the 2000 budget and shows a 7 cent decrease in state aids from the rate of 35 cents per dollar of just three to four years ago. The other revenues that make up the 2001 City of Fort Atkinson budget are 4 cents of every dollar from public charges, 3 cents from regulation and compliance, 2 cents from commercial monies, and 1 cent from public improvements.

     

    The actual 2001 revenues were stated as follows:

     

    Property taxes $ 4,925,361.00

    (Including Utility & Debt Service Transfer)

    State Aids (Revenue Sharing, Road Aid) 2,190,348.00

    Regulation & Compliance (License fees) 270,630.00

    Public Charges (Fire & Recreation fees) 353,900.00

    Public Improvements (Special Assessments) 20,825.00

    Commercial (Interest & Property Sales) 146,560.00

     

    $ 7,907,624.00

     

    City Manager Wilmet then went on to explain where the 2001 City tax dollars will be spent. He stated, as per usual, public safety and public works make up the largest portion of the City's expenditures. Public safety will consist of 28 cents of every dollar and public works will be at a rate of 23 cents of every dollar. The City Manager explained that these numbers have been at these levels for many years. The other 49% of City expenditures are split down as follows: Culture & Recreation 15 cents per dollar; Debt Service 12 cents (same as in year 2000); Capital Outlay 8 cents (down 2 cents from year 2000); general government 8 cents (down from 10 & 11 cents per dollar in the last few years); Capital Projects of road improvements at 3 cents; and Health & Social Services at 1 cent of every dollar. The actual dollar figures for the year 2001 expenditures are as follows:

     

    General Government $ 651,320.00

    Public Safety 2,251,070.00

    Health & Social Services 17,500.00

    Public Works 1,783,655.00

    $ 7,907,624.00

    The City Manager continued with a breakdown of a citizen's total 2001 tax bill. The City Manager stated that as it has been in the past, the largest share of a citizen's tax dollar or 43 cents per dollar is for public schools, 32 cents of every dollar is for City which is the same as it was last year, the county portion is 18 cents of every dollar, vocational school 6 cents, and the state is 1 cent per every tax dollar paid. The total property taxes to be collected from the City of Fort Atkinson residents is $14,909,991.00, with a breakdown as follows:

     

    Public Schools $ 6,458,456.00

    City 4,768,161.00

    County 2,721,111.00

    Vocational School 846,801.00

The City Manager added that therefore the total General Fund, Debt Service, and Capital Project levy per thousand for the City of Fort Atkinson will be $8.4391617 cents. The City Manager further pointed out that this is 4 cents less per thousand than the year 1999 rate.

     

    Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm.

That Chapter XXI, Section 21.09(D)(9), be amended as follows:

 

In accordance with the procedures outlined in the City Ordinance No. 21.09(D), SEWER USE CHARGES, shall be as follows:

 

BOD 0.492 per pound

S.S. 0.674 per pound

TKN 1.647 per pound

 

The charges for BOD, S.S. and TKN will be used for surcharging users that discharge higher than domestic strength wastes.

 

The equivalent rate for domestic strength wastewater shall be $3.98 per thousand gallons.

 

In addition, the charges to Jones Dairy Farm for domestic strength waste, BOD, S.S. and TKN will be in accordance with the 1991 contract.

 

The annual fixed rate charge will be $48.00 per year per sewer hook-up.

 

All ordinances or parts of ordinances in conflict herewith are hereby repealed.

 

This ordinance shall take effect and be in force for meter consumptions beginning in November and billable in January, 2001 for non-sampled customers (Class A), and January 1, 2001 for sampled customers (Class B, C and D).

 

Dated: November 21, 2000

 

PRESIDENT OF THE COUNCIL

 

ATTEST:

 

 

FAITH ELFORD, CITY CLERK

 

City Manager Wilmet explained that with the adopting of the 2001 Sewer budget, the sewer use charges for year 2001 must be changed and therefore the ordinance amended as follows: BOD to 0.492 per pound down from 0.536 in the year 2000; S.S. at 0.674 per pound up from 0.641 in the year 2000; and TKN at 1.647 per pound which is up from 1.591 per pound in the year 2000. The equivalent rate for domestic strength wastewater shall be $3.98 per thousand gallons as compared to $3.95 per thousand gallons in 2000. And finally, the annual fixed rate charge will be $48.00 per year (or $8.00 for every two months) down from the $51.00 per year this year. The City Manager further explained that this would bring about a reduction of about 60 cents per residential customer.

 

Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to suspend the rules and pass this ordinance thru its second and third readings. The motion carried unanimously.

 

Cm. Johnston, seconded by Cm. Zastrow moved to approve Ordinance No. 565 amending the sewer use charges for the year 2001. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.

 

    1. PUBLIC HEARING ON COMBINATION CLASS "B" LIQUOR LICENSE FOR CHINA BUFFET AT 1525 JANESVILLE AVENUE.

 

President Day called the public hearing to order and stated that any resident or citizen wishing to speak on this subject should come forward to the podium and state their name and address for the record.

 

Hearing from no one President Day closed the public hearing.

 

  1. PETITIONS, REQUESTS AND COMMUNICATIONS

 

    1. COMMUNICATION FROM ROBERT W. BAIRD ON BID TABULATIONS FOR THE $4,475,000 BOND ANTICIPATION NOTES.

 

City Manager Wilmet introduced Mr. Paul Patrie, 1st Vice-President for Robert W. Baird.

 

Mr. Patrie reviewed a final pricing summary on the $4,475,000 Bond Anticipation Notes with the Council. He stated that the settlement date of these BANs will be December 6, 2000 with a maturity date of August 1, 2003. The City's first interest payment will be due on February 1, 2001. Mr. Patrie also stated there is a provision that the notes are callable on August 1, 2002 or any date thereafter. It was also explained that the City received a rating from Moody's of a "MIG-1" which is the highest rating that a City of our size can receive.

 

Mr. Patrie went on to explain that there were six bidders for the sale of these BANs. The low bidder was Dain Rauscher, Inc. at a true interest rate of 4.9145%. The interest rates from the six bidders ranged all the way up to 5.0839%. Mr. Patrie explained that since the low bidder came in at a much more favorable rate then the 5.25% that was estimated, the City will actually gain $39,898 that will not be needed for interest payments. These additional funds will be available for TIF projects.

 

Cm. Flood, seconded by Cm. Johnston moved to accept the communication from Robert W. Baird on the bid tabulations for $4,475,000 in Bond Anticipation Notes and accept the low bid from Dain Rauscher, Inc. with a true interest rate of 4.9145%. On call of the roll the motion carried unanimously.

(A) Creation and Deposits.

Monies in the Borrowed Money Fund may be temporarily invested as provided in Section 66.04(2), Wis. Stats. Any monies, including any income from permitted investments, remaining in the Borrowed Money Fund after the purposes for which the Notes have been issued have been accomplished, and, at any time, any monies as are not needed and which obviously thereafter cannot be needed for such purposes, shall be deposited in the Debt Service Fund.

 

Section 8. No Arbitrage. All investments permitted by this Resolution shall be legal investments, but no such investment shall be made in such a manner as would cause the Notes to be "arbitrage bonds" within the meaning of Section 148 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"), or the Regulations of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue thereunder (the "Regulations"); and an officer of the City, charged with the responsibility for issuing the Notes, shall certify as to facts, estimates, circumstances and reasonable expectations in existence on the date of closing which will permit the conclusion that the Notes are not "arbitrage bonds," within the meaning of said Code or Regulations.

 

Section 9. Persons Treated as Owners; Transfer of Notes. The City Clerk shall keep books for the registration and for the transfer of the Notes. The person in whose name any Note shall be registered shall be deemed and regarded as the absolute owner thereof for all purposes and payment of either principal of or interest on any Note shall be made only to the registered owner thereof. All such payments shall be valid and effectual to satisfy and discharge the liability upon such Note to the extent of the sum or sums so paid.

 

Any Note may be transferred by the registered owner thereof by surrender of the Note at the office of the City Clerk, duly endorsed for transfer or accompanied by an assignment duly executed by the registered owner or his attorney duly authorized in writing. Upon such transfer, the City Manager and City Clerk shall execute and deliver in the name of the transferee or transferees a new Note or Notes of a like aggregate principal amount, series and maturity, and the City Clerk shall record the name of each transferee in the registration book. No registration shall be made to bearer. The City Clerk shall cancel any Note surrendered for transfer.

 

The City shall cooperate in any such transfer, and the City Manager and City Clerk are authorized to execute any new Note or Notes necessary to effect any such transfer.

 

The fifteenth day of each calendar month next preceding each interest payment date shall be the record dates for the Notes. Payment of interest on the Notes on any interest payment date shall be made to the registered owners of the Notes as they appear on the registration book of the City at the close of business on the corresponding record date.

 

Section 10. Compliance with Federal Tax Laws. (a) The City represents and covenants that the projects financed by the Notes and the Refunded Obligation defined in Section 13 and their ownership, management and use will not cause the Notes or the Refunded Obligation to be "private activity bonds" within the meaning of Section 141 of the Code.

The City Clerk, or other officer of the City charged with the responsibility for issuing the Notes, shall provide a Continuing Disclosure Certificate for inclusion in the transcript of proceedings, setting forth the details and terms of the City's Undertaking.

City Manager Wilmet explained the several items that were being offered for adoption with respect to the Utility Code Chapter 98 of the City of Fort Atkinson Ordinances.

 

He stated that Sec. 98-35 was being created as to reference the regulations that control the function and operation of the utility as prescribed by the PSC.

Sec. 98-42 will be added to the ordinance to provide for the City Engineer to issue citations for violations where the safety, operation and welfare of the public system is put in conflict with its regulations, policies, procedures and practices by individuals violating these areas and causing direct or indirect harm to the general welfare of the system and community.
