AYES: MAYOR AMES, MAYOR PRO TEM MOUTON, COUNCILMEMBERS NEILD, GETZ, FELDSCHAU, PATE, AND SAMUEL NAYS: NONE MOTION PASSED GENERAL BUSINESS Consider approving a five-year agreement with Express Scripts, Inc. for Pharmacy Benefit Manager services for City employees and retirees. In March of this year, City Staff requested bid proposals from pharmacy benefit managers. Eight (8) bid proposals were received and evaluated by an independent team of experts from Team Pharmacy Consulting, Inc, the City's drug consultant, based on the following weighted qualitative criteria: Account Management, Adherence to Request For Proposal, Customer Service, Implementation, Management Reports, Performance Guarantees, Price and Value Added Services. After evaluating the bid proposals, City staff and Team Pharmacy Consulting, concluded that Express Scripts, Inc.'s pricing generated the largest annual plan savings and scored the highest on the weighted qualitative criteria. As prescription drug costs continue to rise, the City faces a challenge in providing the same level of drug benefits as in previous years. Prescription drug costs totaled $3.2 million for 2018. The current Pharmacy Benefit Manager contract with Express Scripts ends 12/31/2019. Specialty pharmacy drugs to treat cancer, autoimmune conditions, and multiple sclerosis patients cost the City approximately $1,392,811 in 2018. Industry projections convey that specialty medications will continue to rise. Currently, the City's specialty cost is running a little over 26% of pharmacy costs. Express Scripts offers a robust Specialty Pharmacy case management program. The specialty program entitled SafeGuardRX optimizes care and value with programs such as Oncology Care Value, Multiple Sclerosis, Inflammatory Care, Hepatitis Cure Value and Pulmonary & Asthma. These programs provide specialized patient care to optimize health outcomes and reduce unnecessary drug and medical costs. Express Scripts scored the highest in the Request for Proposal weighted qualitative evaluations. Bid tabulations for the top three (3) finalists are as follows: Minutes — June 18, 2019 I The drug plan design for City employees will remain the same.

Consider amending Chapter 24 of the Code of Ordinances related to building permit fees.

In order to comply with this mandate, attached are proposed amendments to the way in which some fees are calculated.

Mayor Pro Tem Mouton seconded the motion. AYES: MAYOR AMES, MAYOR PRO TEM MOUTON, COUNCILMEMBERS NEILD, GETZ, FELDSCHAU, PATE AND SAMUEL NAYS: NONE MOTION PASSED Ordinance 19-036 Consider amending Section 20.03.003 of the Code of Ordinances that would establish and change the speed limits on the Eastex Freeway frontage roads. TxDOT recently completed construction on the Eastex Freeway frontage roads between Tram Road and the Hardin County Line. Improvements were made to the existing frontage roads as well as extending them to tie-in to new bridges spanning Pine Island Bayou. In order to establish a speed zone for this area, TxDOT performed a traffic study which resulted in 85th percentile speeds of 56 and 59 mph. The study is utilized by transportation engineers as a guide to set speed limits since it is a good representation of what the majority of motorists feel comfortable driving. The proposed speed limit for the new bridges is 55 mph and is also recommended that the existing speed limit north and south of Tram Road be raised to 55 mph to provide continuity along this section of road. It is recommended that the speed limit and speed zone boundary change for the Eastex Freeway frontage roads by amending the speed limits under the schedule of Chapter 20 Section 20.03.003 to read as follows: - Speed In Miles Per Street Limits of Zone Direction of Hour Travel Max. Min. Eastex (a) From the Hardin County line to South 55 Freeway the north bank of the L.N.V.A. Canal. (U.S. 69, (b) From the south bank of the South 45 96,287) L.N.V.A.

The City Council, on April 9, 2019, suspended the effective date of the requested increase until July 10, 2019 in order to have the request reviewed for compliance with the Gas Utility Regulatory Act.

Consider approving the Guidelines for the buyout and elevation of structures that flooded during Hurricane Harvey. As a result of flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, many homes within the 100 -year floodplain received flood damage. During a Council Work Session held March 27, 2018, guidance was given to seek funding opportunities for the buyout or elevation of homes located within the 100 -year floodplain. Since that time, staff has conducted extensive outreach to those affected within the floodplain. This effort has included direct mail, phone calls, placing "door -hangers," press releases and public outreach events in an effort to maximize participation. As a result, twenty-seven (27) applications have been received. In addition, The Texas General Land Office has dedicated HUD funding to the City of Beaumont for these buyouts and elevations covering the costs for this program. One requirement of the program is to take public comment on and adopt formal guidelines for the implementation of the grant. Enclosed are the proposed guidelines, developed in conjunction with the Ardurra Consulting Group, one of the City's disaster recovery consultants. Funds would come from The Department of Housing and Urban Development's CDBG- Disaster Recovery funds through the Texas General Land Office.
