On Monday's agenda, City Commissioners will focus much of their time proposing charter changes that will require a vote by residents on election day in June.

First, there will be discussion and possible action to direct staff to prepare an ordinance and resolution relating to the calling of an election for the purpose of a one-half cent sales tax for the June 26, 2018, general election.

The board will discuss whether to call an election to amend the City Charter regarding electing city commissioners at-large.

An ordinance may be considered to change the time for the beginning of terms for incoming mayor and city commissioner seat-holders. The changes will conform with election dates and setting the time for the election of the vice mayor.

Commissioners may consider a resolution calling for and holding an election in Shawnee to be conducted by the Pottawatomie County Election Board, and providing for voting by absentee ballot. The election would be for the purpose of adopting an ordinance to amend the charter by changing the time for the beginning of terms for the mayor and city commissioners to conform with election dates and setting the time for election of the vice mayor.

Commissioners may consider an ordinance to call an election, amending the charter by changing the method of ordering the holding of elections by resolution, which conforms with state law; and setting the effective date and providing for severability.

The board also may consider a resolution calling for and holding a general election to adopt an ordinance amending the charter.

The ordinance would change the method of ordering the holding of elections by resolution, which conforms to state law; and providing for said election to be conducted by the Pottawatomie County Election Board, and providing for voting by absentee ballot.

Commissioners will consider an ordinance and a resolution calling for a general and runoff election for Ward 1, Ward 5 and Ward 6.

In other business, the board may decide whether to disband the Contract Review Committee.

The purpose of the Contract Review Committee is to review funding requests by agencies and entities that serve the public on behalf of the City or in-lieu of the City hiring staff and directly providing a public good or service. The City has utilized a Community Service Contract Review Committee since 1993.

The current annual review/renewal process has been streamlined over the last few years and the number of requests has remained consistent.

“City staff is able to perform the core functions of the review committee should the commission desire to eliminate the Contract Review Committee,” City Manager Justin Erickson said in the agenda memo.

Staff is recommending the City Commission consider two options:

• Disband the Contract Review Committee for Fiscal Year 2018-2019, allowing staff to proceed with contracts and proposals that will be presented to the City Commission in May or June 2018; or

• Direct staff to formalize the Contract Review Committee through the creation of a formal resolution or ordinance to be considered by the City Commission at a future date.

Also on the agenda, the board may consider whether to enter into a consulting agreement with INSURICA to provide insurance consulting and employee benefit services to the City of Shawnee.

Mayor Richard Finley intends to proclaim March 15, 2018, Arbor Day.

On the Airport Authority agenda, the airport staff is seeking permission to expend up to $24,999 for non-professional services in support of the repair of the fuel storage and dispensing system, preparation of associated documentation and training.

Shawnee's airport provides its customers with Phillips 66 brand aviation fuels. As such, Phillips 66 conducts semi-annual facility and equipment inspections. In a letter from Airport Manager Bonnie Wilson, “Following the most recent inspection, Phillips provided the airport staff with an inspection report detailing deficiencies with existing equipment, and with the fuel safety and fuel quality programs currently in place.”

She said inspections and repairs necessary to come into compliance with Phillips’ standards are outside the capacity of staff.

“Until such time as deficiencies in the system have been addressed, the sale of fuel will be negatively impacted,” Wilson said.

The only item set for the Municipal Authority is to approve the minutes from its last meeting.

The 6:30 p.m. meeting will take place Monday in the Bertha Ann Young City Commission Chambers at City Hall, at 16 W. 9th St.
