REGULAR MEETING BANGOR CITY COUNCIL ? SEPTEMBER 22, 2014

CONSENT AGENDA ITEM NO.

ASSIGNED TO COUNCILOR

Executive Summary: Kenneth Crump is requesting an easement for a portion of his deck in the setback area of his property at 735 Hammond Street. Mr. Crump lives at 735 Hammond Street. He recently began construction of an addition to his deck on the property. It was later discovered that a portion of the addition extends into the twenty foot Hammond Street setback. The portion of the deck in question is an addition to the original deck for the house, which was legally built but is now nonconforming. The addition extends no further into the setback than the original deck. The majority of the addition does conform to City Code. Given the circumstances, especially the small size of the setback violation and the presence of the nonconforming deck, staff recommends approval of an easement of eight feet into the setback to allow for the deck addition.This item was discussed at a Business & Economic Development Committee meeting on September 16, 2014.

14-303 ORDER

Authorizing the City Manager to execute a lease amendment between Montage Enterprises, d/b/a The Grasshopper Shop, and the City of Bangor, Airport Department (BGR).

DURGIN

Executive Summary: This Order will authorize a lease amendment between Montage Enterprises, d/b/a The Grasshopper Shop, and the City of Bangor, Airport Department (BGR). Montage has operated a retail concession in the domestic terminal at Bangor International Airport since 1995.

Through an internal audit, it was discovered that a new lease rate was set which is consistent with the other concessions at the Airport. Any lease rate must be approved by the City Council and Airport staff cannot find documentation that this rate was officially approved by City Council. Montage has been paying the lease rate of 10% of net sales, since OCT 2007, which was approved by the Airport Director at the time. Under the approved terms of the lease, the rate was tiered at the following: $0-$100,000 = 10%, $100,000-$150,000 = 12.5% and over $150,000 = 15%. If approved, Montage would continue to pay the lease rate of 10% which is consistent with the rate for Stellar Partners operators of Bangor News & Gifts. Staff supports that both concessions pay the same lease rate. All other provisions of the original lease will remain unchanged. The lease amendment will be approved by City Legal.

This item has been reviewed and approved by the Airport Committee at its meeting on September 9, 2014.

14-304 ORDER

Authorizing Contract for the Purchase of a Plow Truck

BLANCHETTE

Executive Summary: The FY 2015 budget includes $135,000 in funding to replace one plow truck. While this level of funding was appropriate based on the vehicle we had originally planned to replace it is not to buy a sand/salt truck. One of current sand/salt trucks has failed, which we had planned to replace next year. On September 15, 2014 the Finance Committee reviewed a request to waive the bid process to purchase a "work ready" unit from Freightliner of Maine H.P. Fairfield, which would allow the City to acquire the vehicle prior to the onset of winter conditions. On September 15, 2014, the Finance Committee reviewed and approved staff recommendation to purchase the plow truck from Freightliner of Maine in the amount of $154,218. The contract award recommendation must be reviewed and approved by the City Council as it is over $100,000.
