He indicated that he did not have enough experience or history with "Hardy Plank" to be able to give a recommendation. Mr. Dowsett noted that this was an RFP process, rather than a "low bid" process. Discussion ensued. Councilor MacGregor moved to accept bid from Michael MacCaslin, Councilor Moore seconded. Councilor Searcey asked that staff contact the contractor's board to see if there were any complaints and suggested that the motion be made contingent on the results of that contact. The motion carried, with Councilors Searcey, Peterson and Church voting "Nay", Mayor Lehmann and Councilors Moore, Welch and MacGregor voting "Aye".
 C. Discussion Items From Infrastructure Committee:
  1) Vacation of City Property (Range Drive Area): Councilor Moore noted that this came to the attention of the Council as a concern voiced by Mr. Campbell, the owner of Crestview Hills Golf Course. The Committee recommended vacation of the property with two conditions: comparable landscaping, and granting any easements needed by the City for the golf course. Mr. Dowsett also mentioned that Southwest Lincoln Water District requested reservation of their easements through that strip as well. City Attorney noted that enforcement of landscaping could be part of the agreement, which would come back to the Council in the form of a resolution for final approval. Councilor Moore moved to have City staff proceed with the drafting of the documents for the requested vacation with the attached conditions of landscaping within one year and the granting of the requested easements. Councilor Welch seconded, and the motion carried unanimously.
  2) Funds for Southeast I & I: Councilor Moore noted that the City has applied for a $250K loan and the sewer rates were raised to cover repayment of the loan. However, DEQ has indicated that the monies will not be available until the next fiscal year, probably in September. The concern was that the I & I work would not be able to be completed during the summer months. Councilor Moore suggested that the Council consider authorizing the Chief Administrative Officer to pursue short-term funding, which could then be paid back from the loan proceeds when the funds were released. Following a brief discussion, Councilor MacGregor moved to direct staff to investigate funding, not to exceed the debt service level already approved. Councilor Welch seconded, and the motion carried unanimously on a voice vote.
  3) Water Site Funding: Councilor Moore indicated that Public Works Director McClintock had voiced concerns regarding the following items: replacement of the Eckman Creek Pump Station, rerouting lines in the slide area, north dam repairs which needed to be done, and a sedimentation basin for pretreatment which will increase the production capability and decrease turbidity load on the water plant. The anticipated cost for the projects would be about $700K, and most of the work would be performed by the Public Works crew. These costs were incorporated into the proposed budget for FY 2000-2001.
 4) Hiring of Bartlett & Associates for Water Rates: Councilor Moore noted that water rates would probably have to be increased to come up with $55K per year to help pay for the proposed improvements. He recommended that the City proceed with the hiring of Mr. Bartlett to look at the water rates and the current SDC structure. Councilor Welch moved to hire Mr. Bartlett to perform the rate study and SDC upgrade for a cost of $9300. Councilor Peterson seconded, and the motion carried unanimously on a voice vote.
 D. Upcoming Workshop Topics: Discussion ensued. Consensus of the Council was to discuss water and sewer issues at the June workshop.
12. OLD BUSINESS: Law Enforcement: Councilor Moore noted that the committee appointed to discuss the current contract with the Sheriff had met and concluded their discussion. Copies of the recommendations had been distributed to the Council, and he asked that the Council review them for discussion at the next Council meeting. A brief discussion ensued regarding the formation of a "South County" enforcement district. Councilor Welch noted that, given the response from Yachats, it should be clarified that the deputies are available for Waldport, not to provide enhanced law enforcement for Yachats.
13. EXECUTIVE SESSION(S): Not required.
14. ACTIONS, IF ANY, FROM EXECUTIVE SESSION: None.
15. ADJOURNMENT: At 8:55 p.m., there being no further business to come before the Council, Councilor MacGregor moved to adjourn. Councilor Moore seconded, and the motion carried unanimously on a voice vote.

Also present were Public Works Director McClintock, City Administrator Dowsett, Port Manager Rivers and City Clerk Quinlan.
2.DISCUSSION ITEMS:
 A. Tsunami Warning System: Councilor Welch noted that the siren had been ordered, and the thought was to place it in the Port area if the Port commission so agreed. Discussion ensued. It was noted that the long-range plan was to obtain a total of three sirens, plus the siren on the firehall. No objections were made on the part of the Port Commission.
 B. Public Works Matters:
  1) Storm water Local Improvement District: Mr. Dowsett gave a brief overview of the proposed LID project, noting that the Infrastructure Committee recommended performing a "pre-formation" notification and hearing. The approximate cost for the Port of Alsea portion of the LID project under the present projected cost-sharing would be about $51K. Most affected properties would pay approximately $120-125 per year over 30 years. The report was funded by Urban Renewal monies, and included some $700,000 on the part of the City. URA pledged $500,000 if the LID is formed, although the City has not yet made a decision on participation. It was noted that 60% remonstrance would defeat the proposal. A backup proposal was approximately $200,000 expenditure in "fixes". Discussion ensued regarding possible sources of funding and the impact that such a project would have on the area.
  2) Waterline Looping on Port Property. Mr. McClintock noted that the distribution system in the port area included two deadend lines, one down Broadway and one down Mill Street. He proposed a saw cut next to the curb near the Port office which would allow access to the lines in order to loop them and eliminate the dead ends. Following a brief discussion, consensus of the Port Commission was to allow the City to proceed with the project.
 C. Parks and Recreation Matters:
  1) OYCC Summer Project: Maggie Rivers distributed materials in regard to the parks and recreation issues and gave a brief overview of the proposed summer projects.
  2) Lint Slough Recreation Opportunities: Commissioner Johnson gave a brief summary of the Lint Slough project to-date, noting that the dam had been recently removed, which was phase 1 of the project. Phase 2 will be to reroute Lint Creek back into Lint Slough and open up some of the roadway, possibly next summer. Discussion ensued regarding improving the trail on the west side of the slough, putting in a trail on the east side, and maybe erecting a bridge to tie the two together. Mayor Lehmann noted that the Parks and Recreation committee would schedule a field trip to look into the project.
 3) Ball Field Property: A brief discussion ensued regarding the Port's ballfield property and whether the City would be interested in leasing the property from the Port to retain it for recreational purposes. Maggie explained that the suggestion has always been that the Port's properties be leased long-term, rather than selling the property. Discussion ensued. Consensus of the Council was that the City was not interested in leasing the property from the Port at the present time.
 Mayor Lehmann displayed the new memorial plaques which will be installed on the new benches at Meridian Park, as the Port has been involved in the parks process.
3. ADJOURNMENT: At 7:20 p.m., there being no further business to come before the Council and Commission, Councilor MacGregor moved to adjourn, Councilor Moore seconded, and the motion carried unanimously.
Respectfully submitted,

The motion carried unanimously on a voice vote.
 Discussion ensued regarding Public Works funds. Mr. McClintock was present to answer questions. Ms. Lehmann noted that this budget reflected continued funding for the new second sewer plant operator position as required by DEQ and the filling of the utility trainee position.

Discussion ensued. Mr. Moore moved to reduce the Utility Worker allocation by $20,737 and move those monies to Contingency. Mr. Pompel seconded.

Mr. McClintock explained that he wanted to get an industrial strength mower to handle the various areas which need to be mown, not all of which is manicured lawn. Mayor Lehmann noted that the Contingency allocation in the Public Works fund could be left as it was or placed in the water, sewer and street funds proportionately.
 Discussion ensued regarding the Street fund. It was noted that the requested budget had been cut by $27,163 in order to balance the fund.
 Discussion ensued regarding the Water Fund. Mr. MacGregor noted that the Loan proceeds showed $500,000 but the fund did not show the payment of that loan. Mr. Dowsett explained that no payments were anticipated in this budget, those would show up in the next year's budget assuming that the loans were taken out and the projects completed. Mr. MacGregor noted that in order to repay those loans, a water rate increase would have to take place. Further discussion ensued. Mr. McClintock noted that the engineer's estimates were much larger than his anticipated costs, as most of the work would be performed in-house. Mr. MacGregor moved to reduce capital outlay projects by $500,000. Mr. Peterson seconded. Mr. MacGregor amended his motion to reduce the Loan Proceeds by $500,000. Mr. Peterson seconded the amendment. Mr. Moore noted that this would virtually eliminate all of the proposed projects for the upcoming season. Further discussion ensued.
