I. DISCUSSION ITEMS 

A. Presentation by Rosalee Darby, Yavapai Fair General Manager, re the Yavapai County Fair

This year's County Fair should be amazing!   

B. Council discussion re elements of the structured sober living home ordinance

To be tied to the Business Licensing permit. Operators will have to obtain a permit.

First person from the public shared that his son died in a sober living home (he did not specify the location of the home.)

Justin Bateman: An owner operator of a home. Structured Sober Living Home - discusses how his homes handle some of the issues that have been spoken of. He suggests state laws "This issues goes way beyond state measures... Until we treat the whole beast... We're not going to address it." As long as there are financial benefits for the Structured Sober Living Home to exist with fraud, they will exist, Bateman explained. 

Mo Michael: In favor in what is being done. She states, "I'm one of those outcomes." But then explains that she is still sober, she went back to school, is buying a home and raising her kids here. "We're going to help in any way we can."

Mary Beth Hrin says that the weak link is the supervisory requirements. She suggests making the requirements as strong as possible for the supervisors. 

Joe Collings: On the permitting process and the business license - wants them to be ADA compliant. 

Bill (?): Asks if there is a target number of business permits to issue. He wants to know if they can limit it, put a cap on it. According to Attorney Paladini, "We just can't... There's no way to set a cap."

There is also going to be another training for house managers, sponsored by Prescott Rehab Support, according to Barry Hancock. The cost is $345. 

Wilcox notes that this ordinance could be very cutting-edge, but it will require a code-enforcment team.

Sischka asks if they tried to do this before and manage it with zoning. He thought it was stopped by HUD. Attorney Paladini said that the current law is accepted by HUD. 

Mayor Oberg said that he's been discussing this with Chief Black to find a solution to code enforcement issues.

A discussion of trying to  change the definition of Community Residence to include some provision of meals. 

Billie Orr wants the standards to be hgh.

Paladini asks for a list of topics they want to see covered:

Wants to make sure they have a sober living home nad relaps policy to include 1) Notice tp family of eviction, 2) Time limits on when eviction can occur. 3) Alternate living accommodations.

Discussion of regulating client's prescription drugs. 

By the way, you can watch this meeting live at https://www.facebook.com/eNewsAZ/

Rules and Regulations must be posted on site. Visitation policy, and a good neighbor policy needed. 

Sischka notes that this is all far beyond the KISS concept, and is getting so far in the weeds, and is so unenforceable. Ink w

 EnfLazzell thinks they need as many tools as possible in the "toolbox". Orr agrees. 

"I think it's do-able, I think we have to do it," Orr said. "We've all worked hard to get to this point."

"I want high standards, not minimum standards," Orr said.

Blair asks how capable they are to enforce this, can they afford to have the enforcement and even perhaps a K9?

Alison Zelms (filling in for Craig) said there are processes for enforcement. 

We have included letters written by the federal legislature to the Governmental Accountability Office requesting Sober Living Homes be investigated. 

Attorney Paladini notes that most enforcment on issues is based complaint. 

Lamerson notes that laws change, and we all have to comply anyway. 

Mayor Oberg says they will have support from insurance companies, and whatever they have in the ordinance, they will be required to meet the requirements in the insurance.

agenda memo

Proposed FY 17 Bed Tax Allocations

Nine applications were awarded, one was declined because it did not meet requirements. 

allocations

Blair asks about the increase in salaries - basically, they reorganized the money from previous years. 

Lamerson asked about "seed money" - that this should be temporary funding. "It almost seems as if year after year, it becomes entitlement... At what point, do we start weaning off some of the special events from city tax dollars."

"At some point, some of these things should be self-sustaining," Lamerson said. 

Sischka asks if the City is getting a return on investment? Yes.

Councilwoman Orr: 

Office funded from 3% bedtax. 

The tourism office can directly track $1.7M generated, a return on investment of 3:1. "This is a revenue creator for us," Orr said. 

Wilcox discussed the 4th of July - thought it was more successful and family-oriented when it was back at Pioneer Park. She wants to fund the 4th of July out of the bedtax. That cost about $60-80K.

Alison noted, "There are some capacity issues... Can it be done? Yes, but is there a return on that investment?"

Oberg said that the comments he received for 4th of July hae been about 50% for, 50% wanting to return to 4th of July. 

Joe Baines noted that as an example, the Highland Games has grown from a one-day event to a two-day event. Kendall states, "It's very important to the character of our downtown." 

Sischka asks about the return on investment for the Whiskey Off-Road. 

Motion passes unanimously.
