Mr. Hayes explained that prior to 1998, payments received from Entergy/Gulf States were based on gross receipts. In 1999, the Texas Senate passed and signed into law for immediate enactment, Senate Bill 7. Senate Bill 7 was an electric restructuring bill providing for customer choice of retail electric providers that would commence on January 1, 2002. At that appointed time, electric utility companies would begin paying franchise compensation to cities, based on the number of kilo watt hours of electricity delivered in the city,with payments to be not less than the total payment received in the base year 1998, the year immediately preceding the enactment of Senate Bill 7. Mr. Hayes reported that the payment received in fiscal year 2001 was based on gross receipts. That payment was in the amount of $4,397,000.00. He reported the payment received from Entergy in 2002 was based on the kilo watt hours. The payment received was in the amount of $3,267,000.00, or $1.1 million less than that received in 2001. In fiscal year 1998, the payment received from Entergy was $3,542,000.00 or$272,000.00 more than the payment received in fiscal year 2002. Mr. Hayes is planning to move forward, along with the City Attorney and other area cities within Entergy's service area, to audit Entergy and other utility companies that pay the City franchise payments. The audit would be performed to see if the companies are actually paying correctly and secondly, if additional monies are due the City. City Manager Kyle Hayes also expressed that part of his plan to introduce legislation whereby Entergy would pay by the old method of gross receipts and not by kilo watt hour usage. Two firms have submitted proposals to perform such an audit. City Attorney Lane Nichols and City Manager Kyle Hayes expressed desire to use one of the companies, Fox, Smolen & Associates, of Austin, Texas, at a proposed initial cost of$7500.00. This particular company has been hired by the City of Vidor for the same purpose. A meeting is scheduled later this week with other area cities to discuss this issue of electric utility companies. Audio and video tapes are available upon request in the City Clerk's office. Minutes -February 11,2003 Page 4 • Discuss modified staffing plan in the Fire Department Assistant Chief Charles Mullins presented a proposed staffing plan and hiring freeze to reduce overall and overtime costs in the Beaumont Fire Department. The proposed Modified Staffing Plan and Hiring Freeze are attached hereto as Exhibit "A." This exhibit provides background information and compares the current staffing plan to the proposed modified staffing plan. It further details procedural changes in fire prevention services,first responder calls and non-critical calls. Audio and video tapes are available upon request in the City Clerk's office. • Discuss Street Projects in the Capital Improvement Program and discuss proposed issuance of Certificates for Obligation Tom Warner, Public Works Director for the City of Beaumont, provided Council with an overview of the current requirements for Certificates of Obligation, as well as presented an overview of each Public Works Improvement project scheduled to date. This overview is attached hereto and made apart of as Exhibit "B". Audio and video tapes are available upon request in the City Clerk's office. • Discuss proposed sale of Central Park Property Kirby Richards, Director of Central Services, presented to Council a proposal from Herman Memorial Baptist Hospital to purchase approximately 24,570 square feet of land adjacent to the southeast corner of their property (Exhibit "C " is attached hereto and made apart of). The tract measures 78 feet along College Street, and 315 feet along the eastern border of Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas (BESET) property. The property is currently under lease agreement with the Texas National Guard Armory (TNGA). TNGA has leased a 2.5 acre tract from the City for a training facility since 1965. The lease agreement gives TNGA exclusive right to the property. The initial step in the process to sell the property would be to submit a letter to the Texas Military Facilities Commission (TMFC) in Austin concerning the proposed property sale for their board meeting in March 2003. The Commission's Board would have to vote for approval. Another step required for the property sale is a submission to voters at an election. Approval by a majority of the votes must be received. If approved, State statute requires the property to be conveyed through a competitive bid process. Mike Bowers,with Baptist Hospital,explained to Council that the hospital wanted to acquire the property to expand the ambulance driveway, to architecturally complete the east corridor of the property and to complete the sale of a portion of the property done in 2001. Councilmember Patterson received confirmation that the sale would not interfere with Central Park. A general consensus of City Council was given to Mr. Richards to move forward on proposed sale. Audio and video tapes are available in the City Clerk's office. Minutes -February 11,2003 Page 5 COMMENTS Councilmembers comment on various matters Councilmember Goodson stated: "Well this issue that just came up about the guard armory just brings to mind an interesting question, I know the Manager presented the council five additional park properties that might be considered for some disposition, including Weiss Park. We need to see whether the City is maximizing the use of some parks. The article that was in the paper about the Gilbert Estate, I know some questions have occurred for years about our continued use and operation of Gilbert Park, and if we ever in the future wanted to consider some alternate uses of this park. We're going to have to wait until that estate issue resolves itself. I get questions periodically about what our intentions are on the Gilbert building, but I would assume that those are also in abeyance until this estate matter is resolved. I just thought it was an interesting article that had some interesting impacts on the City that others may not realize besides just the Gilbert building, cause I did have a chance to go by and look at a couple of pocket parks and smaller parks in different places recently and as the City looks through these times of having to cut budgets and so forth, parks are a wonderful thing and I certainly want to maintain them and enhance them in any neighborhood that we can, but if we have any properties, be they parks or other general facilities that are not being used, I think this is the appropriate time to look at what those facilities cost us to operate and maintain as opposed to what the benefit that is derived by the individual citizens in a community from them, Thank you." Mayor Pro Tom Smith stated: "You brought up the parks, there are two in my ward and maybe more, but the Ida Reed park which is over on Eighth or Ninth Street right on the freeway, Combest which is on Highway 69 near Minglewood are not used. Now Ida Reed park, there's a lot of bad things go on around there, so the neighbors do not use that park and would have no objection to the park being closed." Councilmember Cokinos - None Councilmember Samuel stated: "Yes, I was posed with the question and I could not answer it. Is there a prohibition against a property owner who plans development on a residential lot, is there a prohibition about him not being able to move forward with building a garage or something like that first ?" City Manager Kyle Hayes answered: "Not to my knowledge, it's my understanding for improvements over a hundred dollars in value, you have to take out a building permit, but I don't know of anything that would prohibit building a garage first." Tom Warner, Public Works Director, interjected: "If the garage was built and not used as living quarters, it would be permissible as long as he met all the setbacks and all the other requirements, but I will confirm that to make sure Councilmember." Councilmember Samuel asked Mr. Warner to confirm that information for him. Minutes -February 11,2003 Page 6 Councilmember Patterson reported: "Yes, Mayor. The Pear Orchard Neighborhood Association meeting will be held at Cathedral of Faith next week on February 18th, at 7:00 p.m." Mayor Evelyn Lord stated: "And I've got a report on a couple of community activities. A week ago tonight, I went to a very fine meeting, that made me feel really good about the community. It was 77 Eagle Scouts that had a very special recognition dinner, and when you look out and see those fine young people, that are coming up in our community and all the service projects that they carried out in many churches throughout our community, and many parks,just made you feel really good. And then of course, we gave the Extra Mile Award. The Mayor's committee for those people with disabilities gave the Extra Mile Award to the Golden Corral, and they certainly deserve to be recognized because they not only have made themselves very accessible to people with disabilities, but they have hired people with disabilities. And so that was the first award that this committee has given, and that was very special. Then the other day we went to Grandparents Day at Cathedral School, and once again, it just made you feel good to see everything that was going on with grandparents. I'm going to have to do a little bit more work, myself as a grandparent, after seeing the kinds of relationships that they had. I'm lucky this time to have some of my grandchildren within reach, and not living overseas so far away from them. At this time I would ask the Manager, if he would like, and then the City Attorney if they would have anything they would like to say?" City Manager Kyle Hayes stated: 'Very quickly. We are planning to bring to you next week to discuss five or six parks for your consideration to be placed on the ballot in May, and then also the Finance Officer and the City Attorney and I need to go to Hibernia Bank, and discuss with their Trust Officers, the Dickerson Estate, who left his estate with the proceeds are going to our library system. But at the same time, Hibernia Bank is handling the estate of Mrs. Gilbert, so it would be a good opportunity to talk with them, and also hopefully, get in touch with their attorneys about the possibility of working something relating to Gilbert Park." City Attorney Lane Nichols - None At this point, Councilmember Cokinos recognized Judy Byrd in the audience. Mrs. Byrd was scheduled to receive the Proclamation for LULAC Week, in the audience. Mayor Lord invited Mrs. Byrd to come forward to receive the Proclamation and address Council. Public Comments (Persons are limited to three minutes) Tommy May Professional Firefighters 1307 Wall Street Local 399 Beaumont, TX Mr. May addressed Council and expressed his opposition to the proposed "Modified Manpower Plan"for the Beaumont Fire department. Mr. May especially noted that in view of the fact that we are under a "heightened alert,"that this plan, along with the reducing of equipment responding to emergencies, may cause a 5% increase in insurance rates, as well as decrease the number of lives saved in emergencies. Minutes -February 11,2003 Page 7 Sharon Daeke 3775 E. Lucas Apt. 4 Beaumont, TX Mrs. Daeke thanked Tom Warner, Public Works Director, and Council for moving ahead with the Twenty-third Street Plan. Her parents live in that area and flooding occurs in their yard frequently and she wanted something to be done to alleviate this problem. Mrs. Daeke also stated that her attendance at Council meetings every Tuesday was to represent people with disabilities and show opposition regarding the reduction of city transit service of late nights and weekends. Mrs. Cleveland Nisby 4520 Corley Beaumont, TX Mrs. Nisby offered a "Thank You" to Council for moving forward with the Twenty-third Street project. Mrs. Nisby also expressed her disappointment that Entergy may take up to five months to move optical cables before the actual work begins. With no further business, Council meeting was adjourned at 3:01 p.m. Audio and video tapes are available upon request in the City Clerk's Office. . ._�f�,-A'\V�4 kkI Mayor E lyn Lord _k&4- J__ Susan Henderson, City Clerk Minutes -February 11,2003 Page 8 EXHIBIT "A" — 3 Pages 'AP INTER-OFFICE MEMORANDUM � c City of Beaumont,Texas Beaumont Fire Department Date: January 31,2003 To: Kyle Hayes,City Manager From: Michel G.Bertrand,Fire Chief Subject: Proposed Modified Staffing Plan and Hiring Freeze COMMENTS Due to City budget constraints,I have researched methods of reducing overall and overtime costs in the Beaumont Fire Department. Background The Suppression Division is allocated 211 firefighters divided into 3 shifts.There are currently four vacancies and two personnel on long term light duty assignments,which reduces the number to 205. This averages to 68 personnel per shift.Each day,there are 10 personnel off duty on"Kelly Day"(an FLSA adjustment tool to maintain a 48 hour work week)and an average of 8 off duty per day on vacation.This reduces the daily level to 50 personnel.With an average of 2 to 4 firefighters off per shift on sick leave and for other reasons,daily staffing levels may fluctuate from below 47, up to 52 personnel. Following are the proposals; Hiring Freeze-Six Positions The Fire Department currently has four(4)Grade I vacancies.I propose to keep those positions open, including the next two(2)positions that become available.This would be a total of six(6)positions not filled until such time the City is able to strengthen its current financial position. With planning to hold open the next two positions that become vacated, the total number assigned to suppression reduces to 203,which averages to just above 67 personnel per shift. Without anyone on sick or other leave,optimal daily staffing would be 50 personnel available for fire suppression duty.Overtime may still be incurred when staffing shortages occur due to sickness,specialized training schools,EMS training requirements,or various other reasons. Reduce Minimum Staffing Level In order to reduce overtime,the minimum staffing level will have to be reduced.It is currently set at 47,meaning, if levels of personnel reporting to work fall below 47 on any given day,off-duty personnel are called in at the overtime rate to bring levels up to the minimum of 47.I propose reducing the current level of 47 to 45.Doing so would require placing apparatus out-of-service from time to time, as well as the movement of personnel to fill in unanticipated shortage areas.Calling in personnel on overtime will not be required unless the level falls below 45.Department records indicate that in 2002, levels dropped below 45 a total of 25.5 times, or about 7%of the time. In comparison to the current staffing level, levels dropped below 47 a total of 28%of the time,which necessitated overtime expenditures. Proposed Modified Staffing Plan and Hiring Freeze Page 2 Current Staffing Plan Council was presented the current staffing plan at the October 5, 1999 meeting.The plan requires 50 personnel to fully staff all apparatus.A new aerial truck,Quint 9,was purchased and placed in service on January 30,2003.This single pumper/aerial apparatus consolidated the services of a fire engine and an aerial truck at Fire Station No. 9, located at 7010 Gladys. However, there is another apparatus at Station 9, a rescue unit, which is a suburban type vehicle,that is utilized if enough personnel are on duty to staff all equipment.This rescue unit is one of three suburban style vehicles that is utilized city wide to primarily respond to medical incidents.Therefore,even with the consolidation, it still requires 50 personnel to staff all apparatus. The current plan requires that when staffing levels drop to 49 or 48,a unit at Station 9,Rescue 57(suburban)is placed out-of-service,and those personnel are reassigned.If the level drops to 47,in addition to the suburban being placed out- of-service at Station 9,one firefighter is taken off of Truck I(pumper/aerial),located at 747 College 5t.,and reassigned. By reassigning one person off of Truck 1, it can only be used as an aerial.If the level falls below 47,personnel are called in to fill in at overtime rates. The following table illustrates adjustments made when staffing levels fall below 50. CURRENT STAFFING PLAN On-duty Number of Personnel Below Apparatus Taken Out-of-Service for Personnel Staffing Level Full Staffing Reassignment to other Apparatus 50 0 None 49 1 Rescue 57(Suburban) 48 2 Rescue 57(Suburban) 47 3 Reassign F.F.off Truck 1 (pumper/aerial) 46 4 Call in oil duty personnel Proposed Modified Staffing Plan The minimum staffing level will now be set at 45 personnel. Anytime levels fall below 45,off-duty personnel will be called in to fill in at the overtime rate.Full utilization of all apparatus requires 50 personnel.If the level falls to 49 or 48, Rescue 57 (suburban) would be placed out-of-service, and the two personnel assigned to that unit would be reassigned If the level falls to 47,a firefighter would be reassigned off of Truck 1(pumper/aerial).At this point,there is no change in the staffing policy when comparing the Current with the Modified plan. If the level falls to 46 or 45, an aerial/rescue will be placed out-of-service,and the two firefighters assigned to that aerial/rescue will be reassigned. The aerial/rescue taken out-of-service may be Snorkel 7(aerial),Rescue 50(Suburban)located at 1710 McFaddin or Truck 3 (aerial),Rescue 56(suburban),located at 805 Woodrow. Proposed Modified Staffing Plan and Airing Freeze Page 3 The following table illustrates adjustments made when staffing levels fall below 50. PROPOSED MODIFIED STAFFING PLAN On-duty Number of Personnel Below Apparatus Taken Out-of-Service for Personnel Staffing Level Full Staffing Reassignment to other Apparatus 50 0 None 49 1 Rescue 57(Suburban) 48 2 Rescue 57(Suburban) 47 3 Reassign F.F.off Truck 1 46 4 Snorkel 7(Aerial) Rescue 50(Suburban) or, Truck 3(Aerial) Rescue 56(Suburban) 45 5 Snorkel 7/Rescue 50 or Truck 3/Rescue 56 44 6 Call in off-duty personnel Budgetary Impact Based on the annual salary and benefits of an entry level Grade I firefighter at approximately$39,500,freezing six positions should realize a savings of$237,000 per year.Additionally,based on figures 2002,overtime is projected to be reduced by approximately$100,000 by reducing the minimum staffing level from 47 to 45. This would equate to a total estimated annual savings to the city of$337,000. Summary Although I have recommended closing a fire station in the past,new legislation over the past few years,such as Senate Bill 382,have changed strategies in the fire service.The closing of fire stations now,would greatly impact response strategies in a negative way.A component of SB382 mandates a 2in-2out team at a fire scene.Simply stated,this Fire Department complies with the mandate by responding with an additional crew to a fire incident which was not required prior to the Bill.This established practice makes it more important now,than ever,to maintain the number of stations that are currently in service. The changes I propose will have indirect costs associated with them If rescue units(suburbans)are temporarily out of service,other apparatus will have to respond to medical calls in their place,thus increasing the volume of calls for the other apparatus. Additionally,fire calls may be received when these fire apparatus are on medical calls, forcing responses from out of district apparatus,which will require longer response distances and delays in response times for assistance on the fireground. As stated previously,with an average of 2 to 4 firefighters off per shift on sick leave and for other reasons,daily staffing levels will fluctuate.This plan requires as many firefighters to be on duty as possible.Fire administration will take an active role in insuring staffing levels remain as high as possible.This will be done by schedule management and sick leave verification.Additionally,in efforts to reduce overtime expenditures,some fire prevention services,such as safety programs or speaking engagements,will no longer be conducted after hours or on weekends,except on a very limited basis. First responder calls must also be re-assessed for necessity of a fire engine at certain medical calls. Reducing responses to non-critical calls will help to maintain apparatus in service. The firefighters of Beaumont are a dedicated and hard working group entrusted with delivery of quality services to the citizens. Overall,this plan will continue to provide quality service and adequate fire protection to the community.
