      expanding the City’s canine program, noting that the money could be used
      to acquire a canine officer, equipment, vet bills and on-going care for the

      the community and to Yavapai County.

      C.       Presentation by Arizona Classical Theatre

      Janet Salese thanked the Council for the Arts and Humanities Council
      grant for the Arizona Classical Theatre and commented it would be difficult
      to present their programs without the funding. She then presented
      complimentary tickets to the Councilmembers and announced the opening
      of Julius Caesar on July 28 and the Taming of the Shrew on July 29,
      adding that the festival would continue through August 13 and
      performances would be presented at the Prescott High School’s Ruth
      Street Theater. She reminded the audience to enter the high school
      parking lot from Whetstine Avenue as Ruth Street was under construction.

      School Superintendent Kevin Kapp said it was a win-win situation for the
      school and the theatre group to allow them to perform in the school
      auditorium.

      Ms. Salese added the Arizona Entertainment Weekly which aired on
      Channel 5 was recently in the area and did some filming.

      D.       CYMPO 2030 Regional Transportation Plan

      Patrizia Gonella-Ramos, senior associate with Lima and Associates
      consulting firm, reported on the Central Yavapai Metropolitan Area
      Transportation Study that made projections through 2030. The study
      included the quad-city area made up of Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino
      Valley, and Dewey-Humboldt.

      Ms. Gonella-Ramos presented the following information:

           •   The area population would nearly triple over the next 2-1/2
               decades, from 117,671 in 2005 to 439,389 in 2030.
           •   Six lanes would be necessary on portions of Glassford Hill Road,
               Highway89A and Highway 69.
           •   Four lanes would be needed on Fain Road, Highway 169, portions
               of Williamson Valley Road, Highway 89 and the Old Black Canyon
               Highway
           •   New road links, such as six-lane stretches of Side Road, Great
               Western Boulevard, and a Glassford Hill Road extension from
               Highway 89A to Outer Loop Road would be necessary.
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006           Page 3


           •   The cost of road construction work would be approximately $1
               billion, which did not include right-of-way for the new roads or
               corridor studies.
           •   The study included extensive public participation but did not
               consider the availability of water or future economic issues.
           •   The consultants would be making this presentation to the other
               municipalities and would then summarize local jurisdictional
               comments and prepare an implementation plan and final report
               which would go to CYMPO for adoption and forwarded to the
               Arizona Department of Transportation.

      Councilwoman Suttles asked if the City was behind where they should be
      and Mr. Norwood responded the Council approved the Growth
      Management Study which would look at the community and its’ needs.

      Councilwoman Suttles remarked some of the projects would have to be
      funded by Prescott and others would be funded by the State and other
      entities. Mr. Norwood clarified that more lanes wouldn’t be added to
      Willow Creek Road and Highway 69 could only be expanded so much. He
      asked who would want to be responsible for blasting the rocks through
      Granite Dells and making that four lanes, so there were limitations.

      Councilman Luzius commented public transportation was needed and a
      survey was being done regarding public transit and would be completed in
      February 2007.

      Councilman Lamerson suggested revisiting the General Plan that was
      based on a population of 55,000 and to look into creating a regional
      general plan so the quad-city plans were compatible.

      E.       Presentation of Standardization of Contracts

      Engineering Services Director Mark Nietupski explained the proposed
      standardization of contracts was the combined efforts of several City
      departments. The following information was included in the Powerpoint
      presentation:

      Objectives/Benefits:

           •   Facilitate responsible and fair contracting practices/improve
               business relationships
           •   Encourage more bidders/increase competition
           •   Defined method of issue resolution/avoids claims
           •   Successful projects/win-win for both parties
           •   Enable fast contract review and establish consistency among
               contracts.

      Allocation of Risk pertaining to other work in project area

         •   Allows for consideration of payments when delays or disruption of
             schedule occurs for reasons outside of the Contractor’s control. In
             the event that the contractor encounters delay or disruption in the
             project schedule due to factors not wholly the fault of the contractor
             or within the contractor’s control then the Contract may be adjusted
             pursuant to the Delay’s and Extension of Time provisions of this
             Contract and a timely request submitted for Contract Amendment.
         •   Puts the burden on the Contractor to timely request this.

      Delays and Extension of Time – Current Version

         •   It is the Contractor’s responsibility to establish construction
             methods and a construction schedule.
         •   To receive consideration for an extension of time, a request must
             be made in writing to the Engineer stating the reason for said
             request, and such request must be received by the City Engineer
             immediately following the end of the delay-causing condition.
         •   The extension of time allowed shall be as determined by the
             Engineer and approved by the City.
         •   There are no payments for any delays in this project, or extensions
             of time which may be granted to the Contractor whatsoever.

      Payment for Delays: Proposed for Inclusion

         •   MAG 109.8 - Payment for Delay – as modified hereafter:
         •   109.8.2(B) - Any compensation paid to the Contractor shall be in
             accordance with the General Conditions, Payment to Contractors.
         •   109.8.3 - Extension of Contract Time: For any such delays, the
             contract time will be adjusted in accordance with the General
             Conditions, Delays and Extension of Time section of the Contract.

         Circumstances which would be considered for payment for delay:

             •   Failure to locate or incorrect location of utilities. (The
                 Contracting Agency will deny any claims for damages or delays
                 if another owner or operator is at fault.)
             •   Contracting Agency Delays: Arizona Revised Statutes 34-221
                 states “A contract for the procurement of construction shall
                 include a provision which provides for negotiations between the
                 Agent and the Contractor for the recovery of damages related to
                 expenses incurred by the contractor for a delay for which the
                 Agent is responsible, which is unreasonable under the
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006                Page 5


                 circumstances and which was not within the contemplation of
                 the parties to the contract.”
             •   In this case, if the Contractor sustains damages which could not
                 have been avoided by the judicious handling of forces,
                 equipment and plant or by reasonable revision in the
                 Contractor’s schedule of operation, the compensation for such
                 damages will be negotiated. The Contractor shall notify the
                 Engineer of the condition in writing by the next work day. Failure
                 to notify the Engineer within this time may be just cause to reject
                 any claims for such damages.

      Suspension of Work – Current Version:

         •   In no event shall the suspension of work entitle the Contractor to
             any additional compensation or monies, unless expressly agreed to
             by the City in a duly executed and approved contract amendment.
         •   In no event shall the Contractor receive compensation for loss of
             anticipated profits, extended overhead, unabsorbed home office
             overhead, or any other payments other than demobilization costs
             and remobilization costs as provided for herein.

      Suspension of Work – Amended Version:

         •   Upon receipt, the Engineering Services Director will evaluate the
             contractor’s request. If the Engineering Services Director agrees
             that the cost and/or time required for the performance of the
             contract has increased as a result of such suspension and the
             suspension was caused by conditions beyond the control of and not
             the fault of the contractor, its suppliers, or subcontractors at any
             approved tier, and not caused by weather, the Engineering
             Services Director will make an adjustment (excluding profit) and
             modify the contract in writing accordingly.
         •   No contract adjustment will be allowed unless the contractor has
             submitted the request for adjustment within the time limits
             prescribed.
         •   No contract adjustment will be allowed under this clause to the
             extent that performance would have been suspended or delayed by
             any other cause, or for which an adjustment is provided or excluded
             under any other term or condition of this contract.

      Work by Others – Current Version:

         •   The City of Prescott is placing the risk of such delays fully and
             totally upon the Contractor herein.
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006               Page 6


           •   The sole remedy of the Contractor herein would be to seek an
               adjustment of the contract time in accordance with the Delays and
               Extension of Time, Section B requirements.

      Cooperation Between Contractors (formerly called Work by Others) –
      Amended Version:
        • Contractors working on the same project shall cooperate with each
           other as directed.
        • Each Contractor involved shall assume all liability, financial or
           otherwise, in connection with his contract.

      Attorney Gary Kidd added the Council was concerned about contractors
      hiring illegal aliens and desired the hiring of legal help and compliance
      with the Immigration Act; the City used I-9 forms for employment purposes
      and legal workers on City projects; a statement would be put in
      subcontracts to the effect contractors could not hire illegal aliens for City
      projects.

      Councilman Blair requested an early completion clause that would reward
      the contractor for finishing a project early.

      Mr. Nietupski explained that came at a cost and would make a project
      more costly because that would be above the amount of the contract.

      Councilman Blair asked that it be put in a couple contracts and assess it
      after the projects are completed.

      Attorney Gary Kidd mentioned it could be put in the scope of work.

Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006              Page 9


      Vanessa Hickman, the representative for CVS/Pharmacy, remarked they
      were processing 75 person transfers throughout the state.

      Councilman Blair asked that Ms. Hickman convey to the corporate offices
      that the City would like this store to review their landscaping.
      Ms. Hickman said that she would take that information back to corporate.

      C.     Reappointments to the Advisory & Appeals Board, Board of
             Adjustment, Fire Board of Appeal and Prescott Preservation
             Commission.

      Councilman Luzius MOVED to REAPPOINT Thomas Menser to the

      D.     Approval of Amendment No. 1 to Contract #2005-231 with
             Black & Veatch Corporation in the amount of $5,924,588.00 for
             Phases II (Preliminary and Final Design) and III (Construction
             Contract Bidding and Evaluation Services) for the Big Chino
             Water Delivery Pipeline, Paulden Pump Station, Chino Valley
             Water Production Facility Modifications, and Intermediate
             Storage Tanks Project.

      Big Chino Water Ranch Project Manager Jim Holt reviewed Phases I, II
      and III and said the estimate was approximately $170,000,000; the
      existing intermediate pump station was designed in 1982 and put into
      commission in 1987, but with the new 36” water line that was installed in
      2001 the pump station became obsolete; staff was recommending Council
      approve Amendment No. 1 for Phases II and III in an amount not to
      exceed $5,924,588; the City share was $3.2 million and Prescott Valley’s
      share was $2.7 million.

      Councilwoman Suttles requested monthly updates on the project and
      Councilman Blair asked that it be at the first round of meetings every
      month so Council knows the status of the project.

      Councilman Lamerson said the water was needed to reach safe yield and
      he wouldn’t oppose the project.

      Ed Nicholson, 1671 Stoney Lane, suggested delaying the amendment to
      the contract; awarding it represented plunging ahead on a project that had
      been shown to be out of control; the City was placing high risk of financial
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006            Page 10


      revenue that may not be there if there was an economic slow down; the
      project should be linked with growth in the City.

      Bill Richards, 425 Fairway View Drive, asked if staff had provided Council
      with a written financial plan showing how the $170,000,0000 costs would
      be paid and Budget/Finance Director Mark Woodfill responded the water
      rate study was completed six months ago that contemplated the purchase
      of the ranch and costs of this project; however, the estimate was low.

      Bill Richards asked if the study was available to the public and
      Mr. Woodfill replied that it was.

      Jim Lawrence, 345 High Chaparral Loop, inquired at what point in time the
      Council would address the project cost difference between the old
      estimate of $80 million and the new estimate of $170 million; the cost of
      implementing a mitigation plan was not included in those estimates and it
      could double the costs; the plan needed to be put in place as it would
      have an effect on the cash flow.

      Mr. Holt clarified the City was working with Arizona Department of Water
      Resources (ADWR) to monitor 60 other wells in the area and staff would
      review and explore mitigation.

      Councilman Luzius remarked the City was faced with at least three
      lawsuits and a mitigation plan was needed now, not later.

      Councilman Roecker said that he didn’t know how the City would mitigate
      something they hadn’t damaged and there was nothing to mitigate now as
      no water had been pumped out of the ground and wouldn’t be until 2009;
      Salt River Project (SRP) knew everything the City was doing; they were
      making good progress, they should stay on schedule, and move forward.

      Councilman Roecker continued the City had to address safe yield which
      was being done; now the public was calling for mitigation plans, which
      would be done, it wasn’t the time; and he would like to see a timeline put
      in the newspaper to keep the public apprised of the schedule.

      Mayor Simmons and Councilman Blair supported moving forward.

      Councilman Lamerson MOVED to APPROVE Amendment No. 1 to
      Contract #2005-231 with Black & Veatch Corporation in the amount of
      $5,924,588.00 for Phases II (Preliminary and Final Design) and III
      (Construction Contract Bidding and Evaluation Services) for the Big Chino
      Water Delivery Pipeline, Paulden Pump Station, Chino Valley Water
      Production Facility Modifications, and Intermediate Storage Tanks Project,
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006              Page 11


      which was SECONDED by Councilman Blair. The motion carried 6-1 with
      Councilman Luzius casting a NAY vote.

      E.     Approval of Site Plan for the Shops at the Boulders consisting
             of 38,000 square feet of commercial buildings on 5.58 acres,
             located at the northwest corner of Willow Creek Road and Gail
             Gardner Way, SI05-003.

      Community Development Director Tom Guice explained there was no new
      information to present and the Planning and Zoning Commission had
      voted unanimously to approve the site plan.

      Mayor Simmons asked if the post office had caused a delay in the
      notification to the neighborhood of today’s meeting and it was confirmed
      many of the residents had received their notification yesterday or today; it
      was also clarified by staff there was no legal requirement to notify the
      residents of the Council’s review of the site plan; it was done as a
      courtesy.

      Speakers:

      Michael Davis, 1647 Morning Stone Drive, commented noise was
      discussed last week and staff was suggesting the setback be waived
      between the commercial and residential property; he lived in Granite
      Springs and the rear of his property overlooked the site in question and he
      did not think the boulders would reflect the noise from backup alarms on
      delivery trucks and sanitation haulers emptying dumpsters, but rather
      would amplify it and bring it up around the homes; he requested a
      provision be put in the CC&R’s that no truck deliveries or sanitation trucks
      be allowed between 10:00 P.M. and 7:00 A.M.; the residents needed their
      sleep.

      Manager Steve Norwood clarified when the project got more site specific
      that would be the time to address the noise issue and Director Tom Guice
      clarified the Final Plat would be coming to Council for approval and at that
      time the noise issue could be addressed.

      Jacob Walker, project representative, commented they couldn’t control the
      City sanitation trucks but he was sure they could work around the problem
      explaining most of the shops in the center were small shops and deliveries
      would be by small trucks during the day.

      Rodney Beckham, 1677 Morning Stone Drive, remarked his home was
      close to Iron Springs Road and he received damage to the home when
      Wal-Mart was blasting, receiving more damage than anyone else in the
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006               Page 12


      area and he wasn’t excited about more blasting being done for this
      project.

      Mr. Guice responded there would be an inventory of the homes done
      ahead of time and the amount of blasting would be much less than the
      Wal-Mart project.

      Robert Kyanko, 1661 Morning Stone Drive, President of the Granite
      Springs Homeowner’s Association, applauded everyone for their
      cooperation; his notification came yesterday, others received their’s today
      even though they were mailed July 6; his concerns were blasting and the
      effects of that as it was nightmarish with the Wal-Mart construction project;
      blasting went on for 8-9 months, a couple times a week with 90 rapid fire
      explosions; he realized there would be a lot of noise during construction
      but urged the City to develop a new noise ordinance.

      Councilman Luzius said the City was told by Wal-Mart the blasting would
      be minimal, but it was hardly the case; then with an on-site rock crusher
      and tractor trailers hauling loads of dirt and rock away from the site, the
      Council needed to look after the people of Prescott.

      Jason Walker remarked he was a resident of Prescott and their intent was
      to minimize blasting if it was needed; he couldn’t guarantee there wouldn’t
      be any blasting, but they would have localized shots and they had talked
      to the Fire Marshal earlier today.

      Fire Marshal Ted Galde explained there was specific protocol for blasting
      and the blaster had to be licensed; they needed to get a permit and
      insurance, and the City would require seismic readings; notification could
      be required beyond the code requirement of 300 feet and everyone was
      aware of the problems with the Wal-Mart project; the Fire Department
      would watch this closely.

      Rodney Beckham remarked he lived 2,000 feet from the Wal-Mart project
      and his home was damaged and he hoped the developer would expand
      the notification process beyond the 300 to 500 foot area.

      Ed Nicholson, 1671 Stoney Lane, asked if there was a website where
      blasting information was available and Mr. Galde responded the City
      website would have information as well as the newspaper and people
      would be notified when blasting was going to occur.

      Councilwoman Suttles MOVED to APPROVE the Site Plan for the Shops
      at the Boulders consisting of 38,000 square feet of commercial buildings
      on 5.58 acres, located at the northwest corner of Willow Creek Road and
      Gail Gardner Way, SI05-003, with the condition that the Residential
Prescott City Council Regular Voting Meeting – July 25, 2006              Page 13


      Protection Standards be waived allowing placement of the buildings closer
      to the western property line adjacent to the open space of the Granite
      Springs subdivision, which was SECONDED by Councilman Blair. The
      motion passed unanimously.

      F.     Adoption of Ordinance No. 4548 - An ordinance of the Mayor
             and Council accepting the dedication of a public sewer
             easement on a parcel south of Northridge Drive and west of
             Blooming Hills Estates.

      Councilman Luzius declared a conflict of interest as his wife was
      employed by Carrington Homes.

      Councilman Blair MOVED to ADOPT Ordinance No. 4548, which was
      SECONDED by Councilwoman Suttles. The motion passed unanimously
      with Councilman Luzius abstaining.

      G.     Recess into Executive Session.

      The Prescott City Council recessed into Executive Session at 5:00 P.M.

IV.   EXECUTIVE SESSION

             or consideration occur at a public meeting. The public body shall
