FUTURE AGENDA ITEMS

None

WORK SESSION ITEMS Budget Work Session

City Manager Sharon Hayes briefly reviewed the council-manager form of government and staff's responsibility versus council responsibility regarding the budget. Council sets the priorities and the tax rates while the City Manager brings forward the budget proposal. Ms. Hayes stated the process starts in April each year. All departments meet with the budget team which includes the City Manager's Office and the Budget Office. The team reviews all requests based on needs and Council priorities. This year, departments submitted $9.7m in requests. Of those requests, $7.2m were one-time/non-recurring requests and the remaining $2.5m were ongoing/recurring expenditures. Total revenue available is only $2.8m. Approximately $2.2m was recurring and only approximately $300k was non-recurring. Ms. Hayes stated that the budget team attempts to make sure that each department’s needs are accommodated, while still paring down the requests, over and over, until the team feels the budget is ready to present to the Council. Finance Director Kyle Lester presented this item. He provided the following summary depicting a modification based upon staff’s recommended tax rate and the Council-proposed tax rate:

(9)

CC08282018 Page 3 of 5

Mr. Lester stated that the effective rate pulls the budget down by $250k ongoing, while the proposed rate would add approximately $230,000 to the budget. During the previous year’s budget process, it was decided that $500k in property tax would be dedicated to long-term capital plans. By building up cash for upcoming projects, it is hopeful that the need for future debt can be offset. Keeping the tax rate the same as this year allows staff $250k more than if the tax rate is reduced to the effective rate. To maintain consistency with last year’s actions, staff wants to utilize the $250k to add to the capital funds on an annual basis. Some internal budgetary changes have been made to accommodate this. Council discussion included what constitutes ‘capital’; not confusing priorities and wish lists; and setting aside dollars for a capital fund to try to limit or avoid a burden on taxpayers when a capital need arises. Ms. Hayes stated that staff is compiling a list of capital projects and debt. Within the next couple of months, staff should be able to present that data to the Council.

Mr. Lester provided the following graph and explained that, as of right now, cash-funding for capital would reach $3.5m in the next five years. With the new proposal, that amount grows to $4.75m, adding an extra $1.25m through that period.

Mr. Lester mentioned one other change, the addition of a new vehicle for the building inspector. The position does not currently have a vehicle, but the job responsibilities warrant one; therefore, staff has added that vehicle for a non-recurring cost of $25,000.

Capital planning:

• Two “buckets” of cash (5-year look) • Available sales tax - ~$5.2m

• Used primarily for maintaining/replacing current assets (fleet, facility renovations, etc.)

• Property tax - $4.75m

(10)

New facility needs include: • Police Station:

• Current building insufficient for needs • Expected within next five years • Estimated cost of $15m

• Fire Station #1:

• Current building insufficient for needs • Expected within next two years • Estimated cost of $4m

It was noted that the Council and staff’s work over the last eight years has helped to stabilize the City’s budget.

In the previous budget work session, Council requested an update on the street maintenance program and funding. Director of Transportation and Public Works Manny Palacios presented this portion of the budget work session. Mr. Palacios spoke about the pavement survey that was conducted by IMS in 2012-2013. In 2013, IMS recommended the following:

1. Target Overall Condition Index (OCI) of 66 and backlog below 15% for entire roadway network. This equates to a $1.4M annual budget. A budget of $663k is insufficient and will result in an OCI of 62 with an increase in backlog.

2. Additional long-term funding needs to be secured. Borrowing/bonding will not provide a solution; however, the City is taking great strides by recycling and setting aside funds for crack sealing. 3. Maintenance only defers eventual reconstruction.

4. Steady – effective rehabilitation and maintenance on an annual basis saves the City money over deferred maintenance.

In 2013 when compared to other cities, Weatherford rated near the middle in average OCI, fair on backlog, and was expected to do better with $1.4m in street maintenance funding per year.

Mr. Palacios provided the following chart depicting street operations budget:

$927,537

$184,265

(11)

CC08282018 Page 5 of 5

In 2018, with 190 Total Centerline Miles, Transportation and Public Works staff have calculated the present OCI at 75. The following is a breakdown of the estimated number of miles based on OCI with green being excellent condition and red being poor condition:

OCI 0-29 8.73 Miles OCI 30-59 35.18 Miles OCI 60-79 37.02 Miles OCI 80-100 109.21 Miles

Mr. Palacios thanked his staff for their diligent work, thinking outside the box, and learning how to utilize equipment for reclamation projects. During this fiscal year, 23 street projects have been completed and staff is hopeful that three more will be completed by the end of this fiscal year. Street rehabilitation projects are completed all over the City and are not concentrated in just one area. Staff works with City utilities, Texas Gas and other utility providers to coordinate projects and repairs to help minimize construction on City roads. He explained the pavement reclamation process and presented several before/after pictures of City streets. Mr. Palacios stated he hopes to be able to perform another pavement survey in 2019 or 2020. Mr. Palacios stated that the Street Operations Maintenance budget of $1,444,380 currently provides for approximately 60k square yards of street improvements and approximately 25,000 square yards of preventative maintenance per year. This equates to approximately six miles per year.

Concerns include: 1) concrete prices continue to rise; 2) contractual services are increasing due to current strong economy; 3) asphalt streets in older developments are beginning to deteriorate; 4) increased traffic leads to more wear and tear on streets; and 5) ADA regulations lead to increased costs.

Mr. Lester stated that upcoming budget meetings include: • September 11th

o Public Hearing on Tax Rate o Public Hearing on Budget

o Need recommendations for outside agencies • September 25th

o Adoption of FY19 Budget

ADJOURNMENT

On the motion of Jeff Robinson, second by Heidi Wilder, the Council voted unanimously to adjourn the

meeting at 7:39 p.m. Motion carried 5 - 0. _____________________________

AGENDA REPORT

Meeting Date: September 11, 2018 Staff Contact: Craig Farmer, Director, Development &Neighborhood Services

Item Number: 2018-758-AR Phone: 817-598-4338

SUBJECT:

Consider approval of Ordinance 912-2018-27 for a zoning district change to allow a C2 Commercial/ Interstate Zoning District to an Industrial Zoning District at a property located in the 2600 block of E. Bankhead and described as being 10.478 acres situated in and being a portion of the Maria Antonio Mesa Survey, Abstract 856, and being a part of the Samuel Bond Survey, Abstract 165, City of Weatherford, Texas. ZCH2018-0011.

BACKGROUND/DISCUSSION

UPDATE: The wrong ordinance was inadvertently attached to the original agenda item on 6/26. The minutes of what was discussed and voted on are included as a reminder and the correct ordinance is now attached.

ORIGINAL DISCUSSION: The subject property is an undeveloped parcel located on the west side of East Bankhead, abutting the I-20 frontage road. The developer, Blue Beacon, is proposing to develop a new truck washing facility to replace their existing Weatherford location along Santa Fe Drive. The attached site plan shows the proposed layout for the site.

The property is currently zoned C2 Interstate Commercial. The adopted General Plan designates this area as

Manufacturing & Warehouse in the future land use plan. Staff has worked with the applicant and staff recognizes that Industrial zoning would allow for the proposed use by right. Without Industrial zoning, a conditional use permit would normally be required in the C2 zoning district. The request complements the character of the existing area and would allow for the area to transition further towards the intended place type, guiding future development of the area.

FINANCIAL IMPACT None.

SUGGESTED ACTION

The wrong ordinance was inadvertently attached to the original agenda item on 6/26. The minutes of what was discussed and agreed upon are included as a reminder of what discussed and voted on and the correct ordinance is now attached. ORIGINAL SUGGESTED ACTION: Staff recommends approval. The Planning & Zoning Commission voted

unanimously (5-0) at its meeting June 13, 2018 to approve the item. ATTACHMENTS

Weatherford Rezone Narrative;

Blue Beacon Int. is a nationwide company whose major business is washing over the road trucks. We have had a truck wash business in the City of Weatherford for over 25 years and have decided we would like to relocate to the site on Bankhead Rd so that we would have the opportunity to add wash bays in the future. We plan to start with a two bay wash which could be expanded to a four bay wash.

We feel our use will be compatible with surrounding uses. We have several locations across the county that are located next to a Loves truck stop and found the two uses complement with each other. The industrial park to the south is a similar to our use and will not be negatively impacted.

The City of Weatherford’s Development Plan shows the area as a manufacturing/warehousing area but we feel Zone I is appropriate for our use and will not afford or deny us any benefits already enjoyed by the neighboring properties.

The applicant will be requesting a variance from the public sidewalk requirements.

If we are successful in obtaining approvals of for zoning and permitting we would plan to start construction within 60 days of closing on the property.

MINUTES OF THE CITY COUNCIL WORK AND REGULAR SESSIONS HELD JUNE 26, 2018 IN THE CITY HALL COUNCIL CHAMBERS, 303 PALO PINTO STREET, WEATHERFORD, TEXAS.

CALL TO ORDER & ANNOUNCEMENT OF A QUORUM

Mayor Craig Swancy called the Work Session to order at 4:30 p.m. Present were: Mayor Craig Swancy, Heidi Wilder and Kevin Cleveland. City staff included: City Manager Sharon Hayes, Deputy City Manager James Hotopp, Assistant City Manager Brad Burnett, City Attorney Ed Zellers and Assistant City Secretary Krista Beach. Absent were: Council Members Jeff Robinson and Curtis Tucker.

Council Member Curtis Tucker joined the meeting at 4:33 p.m.

WORK SESSION ITEMS

Discuss policy and regulations within the City of Weatherford extra territorial jurisdiction (ETJ).

Development and Neighborhood Services Director Craig Farmer presented this item. Mr. Farmer explained that the City has subdivision authority. There is approximately two miles surrounding the City limits that comprise the ETJ. Before 2017 and the most recent legislation, ETJs were considered a City’s future growth area that could not be encroached upon. In most other states the County is responsible for this area; however, in the State of Texas the cities have been responsible for planning and laying out the road systems in those areas and were given ETJ authority over subdivisions. This includes reviewing plats for roads and utilities but building permits are not required. In the past, cities would annex areas for growth. Currently this is a rural county with a population of over 125,000, and with the election in November this could become a Tier 2 county, which would prohibit involuntary annexation.

The General Plan Development Phasing and Annexation Policies states:

x The City’s land use, public infrastructure and service level decisions should balance costs and revenues to support the City’s long‐term fiscal sustainability.

x The City should use the powers available in a City’s ETJ to ensure that future development in areas surrounding the current incorporated City does not negatively affect Weatherford’s future vitality or the fiscal burden on Weatherford’s residents and taxpayers.

x The City should plan for appropriate future development in its ETJ in accordance with the General Plan, including phased infrastructure expansion and annexation.

x The City should consider creation of a “2050 ETJ urban boundary” to guide and limit future expansion to areas that are logically part of the future community.

x The City should require/encourage voluntary annexation in exchange for provision or financing of any utility, roadway, drainage facility, public safety or other public service. The City should not provide such services outside the City unless legally required to and/or should use developer agreements to implement plans of the City.

Possible solutions are:

x Develop Urban Policy Boundary (UPB) – UPB would be a “policy” boundary or line for planning purposes

o Not a permanently fixed or legal line o Divides ETJ into either

ƒ urban areas planned to be in and served by City

ƒ rural areas not planned to be in or served by City within the Planning Horizon (2050+)

x Not only use legal requirements but be fiscally responsible as well x Inside UPB – Urban Standards - future City

(23)

CC06262018 Page 2 of 6

x Outside UPB – Rural Standards – County x Continue to maintain Weatherford ETJ rights

o other cities cannot incorporate in ETJ

o “urban” style development must be in City of Weatherford

Council Member Wilder cautioned regarding the need to minimize the issuance of rural waivers because the policy should be designed to reflect fiscal responsibility and not provide any extra financial burden in respect to long-term maintenance.

Mr. Farmer stated that other cities are discussing urban policy boundaries but that he was not aware of any City that has adopted one as of yet. Further discussion included enclaves, recent annexation laws, and that the City is generally the only water supplier. The real issue is what the City expects the boundary to be by the year 2050 and how the City will serve those residents. Such a boundary can help the City be strategic in its future services and growth. There is no formula that can gauge whether it makes sense to bring a subdivision into the City or not. Cost benefit would be the determining factor.

This is an introductory to open discussions on the topic and will be discussed with other boards and commissions as well to get thoughts, ideas and direction on the subject.

Discussion regarding whether to allow chickens inside the City limits.

Councilman Kevin Cleveland requested this item at a previous meeting. Some items that Mr. Cleveland suggested for discussion on the topic were: distance requirements, quantity allowed, enforcement of ordinance, housing and if free-range should be allowed, property size requirements, and if roosters are permissible. Discussion also included the preference of an ordinance over the possibility of required permitting due to the time and personnel permitting would require.

Direction was given to create a draft ordinance to bring back to council that includes: quantity cap (dependent on lot size), coop requirements with exemptions of larger tracts of land, banning of roosters and distance requirements (50 feet).

Mayor Swancy called for a recess until 6:30 p.m.
