Report from Staff on Progress of Mine Remediation, Publicity Concerning Well Water

        Art Gravenstein from the Nevada Department of Environmental Protection was
present to advise they have been sampling domestic wells and offered to sample
anybody’s well that is within a reasonable distance of the mine. When they first detected
uranium in domestic wells, there were 27 and now they are up to 93. If you look at the
wells and the distribution of uranium, there is no rime or reason and not sure if they will
ever know. The action plan that NDEP unilaterally did when they first discovered the
uranium was they felt they needed to react immediately in the best interest of the
community. The plan was to sample these domestic wells for four months to try and find
out if there is a consistent reading on these wells. Meanwhile, they asked for assistance
from an EPA “problem solver”, who does computer modeling and calculations for
contaminant transport. Is this uranium from the mine or natural occurring? He has gone
on record in the paper and in letters that their initial opinion is that the uranium is
naturally occurring. However, they need to determine what the source of the uranium is.
Regardless of how the uranium got there, they have to help the public deal with the
situation. They have finished the fourth four month sampling and the May results are
out, which will be hand delivered within the next couple of days. The June results will be
in about two weeks. Then they need to decide what they will do with this information.
Their responsibility to this community is to give the information is a timely manner.

       Mayor Homestead felt the state was doing a great job.

       City Manager Newell recommended the city prepare a resolution requesting
Atlantic Richfield manage and pay for public information and come up with a community
information plan.

        Mayor Homestead felt this was a good recommendation and requested this
resolution be put on the next agenda.

Planning Commission Minutes of June 7, 2004

Harvey & Mandy Glazier Change of Land Use from R-1 to R-C at 30 Meadow Drive
and Special Use Permit to allow them to operate a child care facility

       The Planning Commission reviewed the request to change the zone from R-1 to
R-C at 30 Meadow Drive. The applicants wish to operate a child care facility from this
residence. There were several adjacent property owners in attendance that voiced
disapproval as well as several that were in favor. The Planning Commission
recommendation to the City Council was for denial of the request to change the zone at
30 Meadow Drive.

       Councilman Vicencio made the motion to accept the Planning Commission

Street

        The Planning Commission reviewed a Parcel Map Application for Anthony
D’Antonio to split the parcel at 233 So. Main Street. Apparently, previously the split was
done by deed alone; therefore, the split at that time was illegal. The intention of the
applicant is to rectify this split. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the
Parcel Map application with the condition the applicant secure sewer and water
easements and address the fire issues per the letter from the Mason Valley Fire Protection
District.

        Councilman Dini made the motion to accept the Planning Commission
recommendation to approve the Parcel Map application for Anthony D’Antonio at 233
So. Main Street with the condition they secure water and sewer easements and address
the fire issues per the letter from the Mason Valley Fire Protection District. The motion
was seconded by Councilman Robinson and passed unanimously.

Read in Full Ordinance No. 04-04

       Mayor Homestead asked if all council members have read in full Ordinance No.
04-04 “an ordinance amending the Yerington City Code Title 5 Police Regulations,
Chapter 4 Animal Control, Section 4-A-2 Animals Not Permitted, and other matters
properly relating thereto.”

     Councilman Dini proposed this ordinance on May 24, 2004 and all council
members advised they have read in full this ordinance.

       Councilman Vicencio made the motion to adopt Ordinance No. 04-04 as corrected
seconded by Councilman Dini and passed unanimously.

Read by Title Bill No. 359 Ordinance No. 04-05

       Mayor Homestead read by title Bill No. 359 Ordinance No. 04-05 “an ordinance
amending Title 10 Zoning Regulations, Chapter 1 Title; Purpose; Definitions; Section 10-
1-3 Definitions adding Required Area Residential Industry; amending Chapter 4
Residential Districts, Section 4A-3 R-1 Single Family Residence Districts Special Uses
and Section 4B-3 R-2 Limited Multiple Residence Districts Special Uses; amending
Chapter 6 Commercial Districts, Section 6B-4 C-2 General Commercial Districts Special
Uses; and other matters properly relating thereto.”
        City Manager Dan Newell explained currently the city does not have a residential
industry use for home occupation in R-1 and R-2 zones, which this amendment will make
it possible by Special Use. In addition, light manufacturing will be added to C-1 zones
by Special Use. This allows some flexibility to allow certain manufacturing operations in
a C-1 zone.

        Councilman Robinson proposed this ordinance amendment to be read in full at the
next regular City Council meeting.

Debt Management Report for 2004-05

       City Manager Dan Newell explained this is the annual report that will be sent to
the Debt Management Committee with Lyon County and the Department of Taxation.

      Councilwoman Sanford made the motion to approve the 2004-05 Debt
Management Report as submitted seconded by Councilman Vicencio and passed
unanimously.

Park & Recreation Board Recommendations for Ball Field Scheduling & Key Deposit

      City Manager Dan Newell explained the Park & Recreation Board met on May
  th
26 and made the following recommendations:

       1. Ball Field Scheduling: Approval of the tournament schedule and the Hispanic
          league schedule.
       2. Ball Field Key Inventory: Approval of a $20.00 deposit for each key that is
          issued to any coach. The fields need to be re-keyed because of the large
          number of keys that have not been returned. Public Works is now keeping
          track of and issuing keys.

       Roy McDonald, Public Works Director, further explained that at the beginning of
each season, the President of the Little League will submit a list of who is allowed to
have a key. In addition, they have offered to re-key all the ball fields again, which two
years ago the city re-keyed and now there are over 300 keys out and cannot get them
back.

      Councilwoman Sanford made the motion to charge a $25.00 fee for the key,
which $20.00 will be refunded when the key is returned, and approve the Ball Field
Scheduling.  The motion was seconded by Councilman Robinson and passed
unanimously.

Hangar Lease #317 for Lee Cardoza

       City Manager Dan Newell explained this lease is the standard non-FBO lease and
the only difference is the shape of the proposed hangar. Mr. Cardoza has requested
permission to build an L-Hangar, which will fit on the property, instead of a T-Hangar.
      Councilman Vicencio made the motion to approve the hangar lease for Lee
Cardoza as presented seconded by Councilman Robinson and passed unanimously.

Hangar Lease for Jim and Connie Denning at #2 Airport Way

        City Manager Dan Newell explained that Mr. & Mrs. Denning have requested a
lease on airport property to build a 10’ x 20’ drive-through coffee and ice cream shop as
shown on Exhibit A. This lease is basically the same as for a hangar lease except for the
price, which is $150.00 per month for the first six months and then $200.00 per month
until the first CPI increase after five years. City Attorney Zumpft has reviewed the lease
and made some changes.

      Councilwoman Sanford questioned why this location since it would be right
between McDonald’s and the Hangar Café where you can get ice cream too.

        Jack Sypolt, representing a group of the leaseholders (including himself) of
airport property who have reviewed this and don’t think that it fits in with the intended
use of the airport at this time. There is already a restaurant that sells coffee and ice cream
at the airport. They have in the last year spent a considerable amount of time and money
in improving that restaurant and really have brought a lot of activity to this airport. The
best price on aviation fuel within five hundred miles has also brought a lot activity to the
airport. I think this Coffee Stop would conflict with their business as well as the concern
of traffic in that area, airport movements that may go on particularly Continental Air
Flights and also Yerington Aero a Fixed Base Operator. He is not against free enterprise
and made the suggestion that possibly they could move it across the street in the area of
the athletic fields or slightly to the west in the weed pile at the end of the athletic fields.
Their business won’t be fly-in business, but youth using the fields and that means the
youth would have to cross the highway, which is very busy. He appreciates consideration
of not recommending that use in that area but possibly a nearby location that would be on
city property.

        Councilman Dini agreed with Mr. Sypolt about the intended use of the airport
area as they already have a place that would be in direct competition and doesn’t see the
need for it or fits into the plan of the airport. What ensures safety there if people are
possibly wondering around and who would control that?

       Councilman Vicencio expressed the concern of kids going across the highway.

       District Fire Chief Tognoli expressed concern with traffic in that area and the
encroachment onto Highway 95A is increasing immensely.

      Councilman Vicencio made the motion to deny the lease for Jim and Connie
Denning seconded by Councilman Dini and passed unanimously.
Authorization to Apply for a Walker River Basin Communities Foundation Grant for a
Drug Dog

       City Manager Dan Newell explained the Police Department is requesting
authorization to submit a grant application in the amount of $7,705 to Walker River
Basin Communities Foundation for a drug dog.            To date, there are donation
commitments of $33,000.00, which includes a police vehicle equipped to house the dog.

       Councilman Dini made the motion to authorize the Police Department to submit a
grant application to Walker River Basin Communities Foundation for a drug dog. The
motion was seconded by Councilman Vicencio and passed unanimously.

Pay Bills

      Bills and salaries, Voucher #2815 through Voucher #2952, inclusive, totaling
$132,389.05 were approved for payment by motion of Councilman Vicencio seconded by
Councilman Robinson and passed unanimously.

       There was no further business and the meeting adjourned.
