Municipal Development District (MDD) Meeting May 27, 2020 Update

Supporting Documents for Agenda Items can be found HERE.

Attendance:  Present:   President Byron Bevers, Mike Sorich, David Hoover, Ted Fletcher and Ron Raymaker  

ITEM 4:  Capital Projects for Water/Sewer -   This stage of planning only considered future projects that are unfunded or partially funded from the Public Works Department. CIP assumes MDD funding at maximum contribution. A brief description of each project is provided in the supporting documents.  Discussion was centered on streets, pathways, parks and facilities including the east relief detention pond.  Discussion only.

ITEM 5:  Test Pumping Bid Approval -  Temporary test pumping of the East Relief Pond site will allow Bleyl engineering to field verify their hydraulics and hydrology (H&H) calculations and modeling as well as allow for additional data collection. Rental cycle is for 28 days. The cost of this rental is eligible for full funding from the Municipal Development District (MDD). No action taken as staff recommended tabling.

ITEM 6:   Booster Pump Water Plant #2 -   The addition of booster pumps at Water Plant #2 was recommended by Bleyl Engineering to increase the pumping capacity of our water system and provide redundancy.  The booster pumps were funded in 2018, however the replacement of a ground storage tank and load calculations for the MCC delayed the purchase and installation of the pump. The  new pump will add pumping capacity and flexibility to our water system. This purchase is cost-shared between the City and the Municipal Development District (MDD) with payments of City (30%) - $9,033.71  and MDD (70%) - $21,078.67.  MDD Board approved the funding at the 70% level of $21078.67.

ITEM 7:   Sales Tax Audit-  Richard Fletcher with HDL Companies presented a proposal to staff to start a sales tax audit for MDD. The only money that will be paid out will be a 30% commission on any sales tax that is recovered and for future collections for a 24-month billing period from the date the MDD first realizes the sales tax improvement. This proposal also includes the report series and analysis on their website that are updated monthly for staff.   MDD voted 5-0  to move forward as a pilot through September 30 but asked staff to continue research of other options.

ITEM 8: Ratification of  April Accounts Payable - MDD ratified the accounts payable by a vote of 5-0.
