– Agenda Item #9: Needles Public Utility Authority / Needles City Council: Authorize staff to move forward with a proposed wastewater public education/outreach program to include a food servicing grease trap pumping and inspection pilot program and residential fats, oil and grease public education flyer.

Background: Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG) is a main issue for our local wastewater system and plant. Large amounts of oil and grease in wastewater can cause sewer lines to clog, Sewer lift station failures, wastewater treatment plant problems and environmental Concerns.

To combat an on-going problem the following programs have been developed to use the Wastewater public Outreach/education funds;

1) Food Servicing Grease Trap Pumping and Inspection Pilot Program:

Rebate a maximum of $100.00 per pumping and grease trap inspection performed by the City for a maximum budget of $10,000.00. A maximum of three (3) rebates can be applied to each food service establishment utility account. A mandatory City inspection of the grease trap is required to obtain the rebate.

2) Residential Fat’s, Oil, and Grease Public Education Flyer:

Provide awareness and prevention of FOG for a household. Estimated printing cost $1,000.00.

Fiscal Impact: The budget for FY 2016-17 is $16,667.00. The proposed projects/materials is estimated to be completed for approximately $11,000.00.

Environmental Impact: FOG which discharged into the sewer it quickly cools and accumulates in Sewer pipelines, resulting in a sewer blockage. These blockages often result in overflows and environmental pollution can occur in our homes, streets, lawns and possibly the Colorado River. Providing an incentive program to food servicing establishments and residential education can reduce the FOG currently being discharges and will lessen the probability of environmental pollution.

Recommended Action: Authorize staff to move forward with proposed Food Servicing Grease Trap Pumping/Inspection Pilot Program and Residential FOG Outreach Program.

– Agenda Item #14:

** Video from ZachNews on YouTube: **

Authorize the City Manager to negotiate an intergovernmental agreement to temporarily use the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe Building Inspector until a Building Official can be hired.

BackgroundWhen the City was renovating the El Garces it utilized the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe (FMIT) as a building services contractor because the City did not have a licensed and certified Building Inspector. The enclosed agreement was executed between the FMIT and the City for those services. The City did not have a certified building inspector and in order to meet that obligation for ongoing building services, the City sought proposals and engaged Bureau Veritas (BV) for Building Official, Plans Examination, and Inspection services. BV assigned a person to provide that service to the City however he has left the city for another job. BV is unable to assign a satisfactory person to provide building related services.

During the mid-year budget process Council discussed adding a building official as funding is available to do so. That recruitment should begin this week with a successful candidate On board as soon as possible, but in all likelihood 90 days. In order to Continue to provide builders with good customer service I have returned to the FMIT about reactivating the previous agreement (attached). It will need to be modified to be specific to our immediate needs and the term changed to 90 days.

Fiscal Impact: The previous agreement charged $200/inspection.

Recommendation: Authorize the City Manager to negotiate an intergovernmental agreement to temporarily use the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe Building Inspector until a Building Official can be hired.
