Minutes-August 26,2003 WORK SESSION Review the proposed FY2004 Capital Improvement Program City Manager Kyle Hayes presented Council with an overview of the FY2004 Capital Improvement Program. The Capital Improvement Program is a plan prepared annually to provide for both short and long range physical development within the City of Beaumont. The CIP includes a listing of all General and Public Works improvement projects along with project descriptions and cost estimates. Approved projects are classified in two phases: current and planned. A current project is one that is underway or will be underway within the fiscal year. Planned projects are approved projects but are only in the preliminary development stage. The recommendation was made by City Manager Kyle Hayes to eliminate the previously planned hike and bike trail along the Neches River. He stated that although the City had already invested monies in the project, the City's share of the project had risen from 600 thousand dollars to 2.1 million dollars. A cost benefit analysis shows that funs would be spent more beneficially for the City on other needs. He also had concerns for safety and maintenance issues on the proposed trail. Councilmembers concurred in this recommendation and Councilman Samuel commended the Manager for his recommendation. Councilmember Patterson requested City Manager Kyle Hayes and staff to move up the South Park Drainage program to 2005 instead of the targeted start date of 2007.

Charter requires the submission of the CIP to Council as part of the financial planning process. It is adapted in September with the annual operating budget. The CIP allows for project evaluation at a comprehensive level and also provides the financial information necessary to plan and anticipate potential changes to the tax structure, user fees and bonded indebtedness. Generally, a capital improvement has the following characteristics: relatively high monetary value (at least $100,004), long life (will last at least 10 years), and results in either the creation of a fixed asset, or the revitalization of one. Fixed assets are resources owned by the City which have monetary value, long-term character and will be held or used. Examples are land, buildings and improvements to land other than buildings. Included within the above definition are the following specific items: purchase, improvement and development of land; construction of new facilities for the delivery of City services;remodeling of existing facilities; and the planning/engineering costs related to specific improvements of the type listed above. The CIP includes a listing of all General and Public Works improvement projects along with project descriptions and cost estimates. General Improvements include Parks and Recreation, Public Safety and other general government municipal facility improvements, whereas Public Works Improvements include street and stormwater drainage projects. Approved projects are classified in two phases: current and planned. A project classified as current is underway or will be underway within the fiscal year. Projects classified as planned are approved projects but are only in the preliminary development stage. Other projects for consideration, also included in this presentation, represent projects that are desirable but are not included in the five year plan. 1 Capital Program 2004 August 26, 2003 Completed Projects (1999-2003) Since 1999, approximately$50.2M of projects, both general improvement and public works, have been completed or will be completed prior to fiscal year end 2003- The general improvement projects completed during this five year period totaled $15.9M. The costs for all public works projects topped $34.3M. An average of$10M in projects were completed annually during this period. A summary of the projects completed from 1999-2003 follows: YEAR DESCRIPTION AMOUNT Public Works Projects 1999 Chaison Street-Threadneedle to Harriot $ 156,000 2000 Walden Road/Ditch 109 845,000 Ector Street Ditch 500,000 2001 Concord Road- Phase 1 (1-10 to Helena) 3,500,000 Franklin Street 785,000 Folsom Road 2,900,000 Frontage Road- Entertainment Complex 1,000,000 2003 Walden Road-Major Dr. To Fannett 6,570,000 Concord Road Phase 1 8,370,000 Concord Road Phase 11 5,700,000 Major Drive 4,000,000 General Improvement Projects 1999 Alice Keith Swimming Pool $1,380,000 2000 Municipal Court Building 1,904,000 Fire Station Construction (3) 2,285,000 Beaumont Yacht Club Additions 1,080,000 Parks Maintenance Facility 700,000 2001 Police Building Renovation 300,000 Fire Training Center Improvements 1,496,000 Athletic Complex-Softball Fields 1,616,000 Airport Fuel Facility 195,000 2002 Airport Runway Extension 268,000 Miller Library Expansion 475,000 T.

The growth in assessed value mirrors the level of debt issued by the City for improvements to infrastructure which support a growing economy. The debt level has fluctuated between $67.6M at 10/01/94 to $89.2M at 10101199 while maintaining an average basis of 2.09% for period under review. The projected debt level for 10/01/03 is $81.5M with a debt ratio of 1.95% of assessed value which is in line with the average. The following table illustrates this discussion.

Individual project descriptions, with maps for street and drainage projects, may be found in the section titled "Project Descriptions." The following table identifies the specific cost associated with each phase of the CIP. Capital Improvement Program FY 2004 -2008 Program Summary Cost Public Works Improvements Current $32,007,000 Planned 69,160,000 Total 1 01,167,000 General Improvements Current $4,962,000 Planned 850,000 Total 5,812,000 Total Program Cost $106,979,000 Funding Financing for the annual program is provided by the "cash flow" approach, whereby debt is issued to generate enough cash to pay the actual expenditures during the year for both existing and new projects. This approach provides the most efficient use of the public tax dollars by allowing multi-year projects to be initiated without issuing debt for the full cost of the projects at the time of project commencement. All available funding sources are considered. Historically, funding has been provided by the sale of general obligation debt, Community Development Block Grant, and various Federal and State agencies. Based on a"cash flow" approach the City expects to sell approximately$10M in Certificates of Obligation (CO's) each year for the next three years. This inflow of cash will provide sufficient cash flow for current General and Public Works Improvement projects. 5 Capital Program 2004 August 26, 2003 Funding for the remaining projects has not been identified. As these projects transition into the "current" classification, funding requirements will be reviewed and proposed. Several factors which are unforeseeable will dictate the amount of debt issued. Weather, planning, design and construction costs all factor into the decision of when and how much debt to issue. Effect on Operating Costs It is expected that the operational needs related to current and scheduled Public Works Improvements will be absorbed into existing operating departments and will not require additional personnel. The most significant operating item is maintenance of rights-of-way related to street projects, which will be handled by the Parks division. The projects within the General Improvements category will be handled the same way. Additional operating needs will be absorbed. Conclusion The Capital Program is designed to annually review the development and continuing maintenance of the City's infrastructure. The relationship between the assessed valuation, outstanding debt, annual debt service requirements and general government expenditures as illustrated provide a basis for project consideration and funding. Revisions and amendments may be incorporated into the plan as desired by Council. 6 FIVE-YEAR CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM PUBLIC WORKS PROJECTS FY 2004-2008 Estimated Estimated FY 2004 Future Anticipated Project Expenditures Planned Funding Construction Current Projects Cost at FYE 2003 Expenditures Required Start Date 23rd-College to Washington $ 1,930,000 200,000 1,730,000 - In Progress Virginia-Mercantile to Avenue A 2,830,000 10,000 1,512,500 1,307,500 2004 Downtown Improvements Orleans-Wall to Crockett 950,000 (1) 100,000 850,000 - In Progress Pearl-Fannin to Liberty 500,000 - 150,000 350,000 2004 Delaware-Dowlen to Major 3,660,000 160,000 2,500,000 1,000,000 2003 Neches River Hike&Bike Trail 4,557,000 (2) 376,000 - - Unknown Phelan Boulevard Drainage Participation Project 200,000 (3) - 200,000 - 2004 Phelan-Major to Keith 2,430,000 - 200,000 2,230,000 2005 Concord IV-E.Lucas to Hwy 105 9,540,000 (a) - 830,000 8,710,000 2007 Main-Calder to Blanchette 3,250,000 - 225,000 3,025,000 2005 R.

Estimated cost for this project is $150,000. PORT INTERCHANGE YARD As a part of the downtown revitalization effort,the City would like to take advantage of its material resources and develop the riverfront behind the Civic Center and City Hall. In order to make the development a reality, the City would need to purchase the Port of Beaumont's Interchange Yard (6-7 acres) located between the Civic Center and City Hall and Riverfront Park. Estimated cost for this project is $750,000. 37 PRINCE STREET OUTFALL The Prince Street drainage area covers approximately 1,350 acres. This area is bounded roughly by East Lucas on the north, Pine Street on the east, Maple Avenue on the south, Concord Road on the southwest and Detroit Avenue on the west. Natural ground elevation in the study area varies from 33 feet in the Fair Park area to 5 feet in the area east of Pine Street and 10 feet in the area north of Lucas, the Hayes Gully Outfall. Roadside ditches, which are not adequate to handle the amount of runoff, comprise 70% of the drainage system in the project area. This area is also comprised of four sections which drain independently of each other. The northwest area drains into Hayes Gully Outfall, and the other three areas drain to the east into Brakes Bayou. The completion of this project will require the installation of trunk lines, inlets, manholes and connecting pipe improvements, which will provide for a more consolidated and effective drainage system. The preliminary design is complete. Estimated cost for this project is $9,200,000. RESTROOM FACIUTIES -Alice Keith,Park This project would provide for new restroom facilities at Alice Keith Park. The existing public restrooms are not ADA accessible and plumbing is very old with frequent vandalism and sewer problems.Estimated cost for this project is$125,000. RIVERFRONT PARK - Bank Stabilization This project provides for 1,225 feet of bank stabilization. The shoreline along the west bank of the Neches River is eroding and the existing sidewalk supports are exposed. The existing sidewalks on the north shore will collapse without support. Estimated cost for this project is $1,135,000. ROOFTOP AIR HANDLER This project would provide for the replacement of the rooftop air handier at City Hall. The existing air handier unit at City Hall is over 20 years old and in very poor condition. The housing, door gaskets, and drain pans have deteriorated beyond repair. Approximately 30 feet of duct is coated with asbestos containing materials. Water is leaking from rusted through drain pans, causing built-up roofing materials to deteriorate. Estimated cost for this project is $175,000. ROYAL STREET OUT-FALL- Remaining Phases Provides for the completion of Phases 11, 111, and IV of the Royal Street Outfall Project. This project will be bounded by MLK Parkway on the east, Wall Street on the north, Southern Pacific Railroad on the west and Irma Street on the south. Estimated cost for this project is $1,680,000. 38 TELEPHONE SYSTEM REPLACEMENT This project would provide for complete new telephone systems at City Hall, Police Department, Fire Headquarters and health facilities located on Washington Blvd. The existing systems at these locations are outdated and only used or reconditioned parts are available. City Hall telephone communications switch remains to be the hub for four sites and is at maximum capacity at this time. Replacement of the switches would allow for future expansion, include improved features, and would relieve the City of the precarious situation that currently exists. Estimated cost for this project is $525,000. 39
