Item Summary: Joint Relief Funding Review Committee: The purpose of this item is to review and consider changing the terms of office for members of the Joint Relief Funding Review Committee. Currently, the expiration for the terms of office coincide with other committees in June. The committee's responsibilities begin in February and conclude in September; therefore, making it inconvenient to consider appointments in June because of his/her involvement in the selection process for outside agency recipients of CDBG monies. The membership's terms are for three years. B -CS Library Committee: The members of the B -CS Library serve two year terms, with terms corresponding to the calendar year. The terms of Bill Lancaster and Mary Chauvin expired December 31. Staff Recommendation: Joint Relief Funding Review Committee: Staff recommends changing the board membership term from January - December effective immediately. If council approves, the board membership would change as follows: David Decker, 1/01; Sara Goode, 1/02; and Jim Scarmardo, 1/02. Staff is requesting Council consider applications to fill the position currently occupied by David Decker. Mr. Decker has indicated a desire to continue service. An additional application was also received for this committee. B -CS Library: Ms. Chauvin has indicated that she does not wish to be re- appointed. Mr. Lancaster is willing to continue service if that is the desire of the council. We received several applications for this committee in 2000. We contacted those individuals from citizens and they have indicated their willingness to be considered for this committee. Council Action Options: 1. Appoint one citizen to Joint Relief Funding Review Committee and two citizens to B -CS Library. 2. Reject applications and re -advertise. Supporting Materials: Applications available in council binder. Current membership lists for B -CS Library Committee and Joint Relief Funding Review Committee. CITY OF COLLEGE STATION Outside Agency Funding Policy Adopted 9/28/2000 1. All CDBG eligible service providers will make requests for funds through the Joint Relief Funding Review Committee (JRFRC), including those that currently receive funds from the City's General Fund. This committee evaluates social service agency funding requests and determines a recommended allocation for the Cities of Bryan and College Station's pooled US HUD Community Development Block Grant Public Service funds. The amount of CDBG funds obligated within a program year to support public service activities may not exceed 15% of the total grant awarded to the City plus 15% of total program income received in the preceding year. Due to the source of the funds, eligibility for these funds is determined by Community Development Block trant guidelines. 2. The College Station City Council will fund outside agency requests through the General Fund as it deems appropriate. Funding levels will be determined on a year by year basis, depending on the needs of the requesting organizations, the City Council's strategic goals, and available funding. 3. The three College Station members of the Joint Relief Funding Review Committee will review General Fund outside agency requests, except those made by political subdivisions and the Brazos Valley Animal Shelter, and provide a prioritized funding recommendation to the City Council. 4. All organizations requesting funds through the General Fund will be required to complete a standard application. 5. Requests for Hotel/Motel Fund, Sanitation Fund, and Electric Fund outside agency funding will continue to be reviewed by the Office of Budget and Strategic Planning. The Office will also continue to review General Fund requests from political subdivisions and the Brazos Valley Animal Shelter. CITY COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING Page 9 THURSDAY, MAY 26, 1988 Councilman Gardner seconded the motion which carried unanimously, 7-0. Agenda Item No. 11 - Consideration of Rose Chemical Steering Committee's proposed buyout and consent offers relating to the Missouri disposal site for PCB material. City Attorney Locke described this item. She stated that the Environmental Protection Agency found that the disposal site at Holden, Missouri was not found to meet EPA standards. The City of College Station has disposed of 6,875 pounds of waste at that site. The Rose Chemical Company filed bankruptcy due to the cleanup costs, but the bankruptcy court held that cleanup cost cannot be "evaded" through a bankruptcy filing; therefore, the City is responsible for its portion of the cleanup. A committee was formed by the generators involved and this committee hired Clean Sites, Inc. to coordinate the cleanup. Two options have been presented to the City: 1) buyout for $17,875.00; or 2) participate on a continuing basis for $10,518.75. The staff recommended the buyout option. Councilman Birdwell moved to approve the staff recommendation to enter into a buyout agreement with Rose Chemical Company for $17, 875.00. Councilman Haddox seconded the motion which carried unanimously, 7-0. Agenda Item No. 12 - Consideration of a resolution establishing the Bryan/College Station Joint Relief Funding Review Committee. Mayor Ringer explained that this committee will be appointed by the Bryan Council and College Station Council to review requests from agencies seeking funding from the two cities and making recommendations to both Councils for determination of those re- quests. Councilman Brown moved approval of Resolution No. 5-26-88-12 establishing the Bryan/College Station Joint Relief Funding Re- view Committee. Councilman Mcllhaney seconded the motion. Mr. Ragland clarified that the intent of this committee's charge is to bring the Council a recommendation and provide the Council with all requests in a summary fashion. r'O6683 CITY COUNCIL REGULAR MEETING THURSDAY, MAY 26, 1988 Page 10 Councilman Gardner inquired about the use of Community Development Funds.

Agenda Item No. 13 - Consideration of an ordinance amending Chapter 1, Section 11, Subsection B(3) of the Tax Code, whereby Subsection B(3) is eliminated from the Tax Code. Ms. Locke stated that the Attorney General recently issued a ruling determining that the cities and counties who collect hotel/motel occupancy taxes do not have the authority to grant an "exception" for organizations whose purposes are religious, charitable or educational. The proposed ordinance will amend the city's current ordinance deleting Chapter 1, Section 11, Subsection B(3) of the Code. Councilman Birdwell moved approval of Ordinance No. 1751 deleting Subsection B(3) of Chapter 1 of the College Station Code of Ordi- nances. Councilman Gardner seconded the motion which carried unanimously, 7-0. Agenda Item No. 14 - Consideration of an ordinance amending Section 4, Chapter 4, of the Code relating to carnivals, circuses, menageries, sideshows, and concesssions. Ms. Locke explained that this ordinance has been found to be ineffective. A committee was formed by the staff to put together an ordinance which addresses problems in regulating carnivals and circuses. An applicant would file an application with the Build- ing Department along with furnishing suitable evidence. Mr. Ragland explained several problems which have occurred with the review process. Councilman Mcllhaney moved approval of the ordinance as proposed. Councilman Brown seconded the motion. Councilman Birdwell moved to amend the ordinance by deleting Section E(7), E(9), and F(1).
