July 2, 2008
                                    MINUTES

Council Members Present: Norm Johnson, Bill Lover and Rick Ensey

Staff Present: Assistant City Manager Dave Zabell, Police Chief Sam Granato, Police Police
Lieutenant Gary Belles, Fire Chief Charlie Hines, Deputy Fire Marshall Ron Melcher, Code
Compliance Officer Royale Schneider, Assistant City Attorney Bronson Faul, Police
Administrative Assistant Terri Greer

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Johnson at 2:00 p.m.




                                              3
I.          Jail Cost Projections

Belles provided a brief update of current jail population and cost projections. There was a
22% increase in population in April. Lover inquired about the opening of the new pod in the
juvenile detention center. Belles advised that although we have had juveniles housed there,
the sentencing and restitution for juveniles are outside of the police department’s control.

     II.        North 1st Street Emphasis

Belles reported the final statistics for the North 1st Street emphasis. As this area is
comprised of businesses rather than residences, it was different than all of our previous
emphasis patrols and lessons will be taken from this emphasis.

     III.       WASPC Conference

Granato reported that the WASPC Legislative Committee met on June 24 and put Random
Drug Testing on their priority list. Placement on the priority list means that WASPC will
provide logistical assistance and support, and will provide testimony on behalf of the lead
agency, which in this case will be the Yakima Police Department. The issue was adopted
by the committee and will be presented to the full membership in November at the Fall
conference.

     IV.        Amendment of section 15.25.060 of Yakima Urban Area Zoning Ordinance to file
                criminal cases in the City of Yakima Municipal Court

Faul asked to not have any action taken on this issue at this time. He reported that the
Planning Commission is doing a complete revision of their code which will be presented to
the Council when it is finished. At that time, there will need to be council action taken in
order to prosecute these cases in Municipal Court rather than District Court.

     V.         Weedy Lots
Schneider presented the problem of abatement of weedy lots. The abatement process
takes 60 days. In 2007, there were 69 grass fire calls inside the Yakima City limits. This
should be addressed as a public safety issue rather than a nuisance issue. Hines would
like to see some type of enforcement during fire season that limits weed height or imposes
a fine. Johnson wants to see an ordinance drafted to address the issue. Lover would like
Code Enforcement to be able to fine violators. He will contact Jeff Cutter to see what can
be drafted. Zabell asked what authority the Fire Department has if they identify a lot that is
an immediate threat. All authority rests with Code Enforcement. Lover asked if it would be
possible for the City to have hazardous lots mowed and then charge the property owner.
Zabell advised that we had to make sure the City has the authority to do that, and stated the
authority should change based on whether the issue was a fire hazard/public safety concern
or a nuisance/unsightly lot concern.
            XIII.   Adjournment
The meeting was adjourned at 2:35. The next meeting will be scheduled when needed.
Approved by Council Member Johnson, Chair

                                                MINUTES

Council Members Present: Norm Johnson, Bill Lover and Rick Ensey

Staff Present: City Manager Dick Zais, Assistant City Manager Dave Zabell, Police Chief
Sam Granato, Fire Chief Charlie Hines, Deputy Police Chief Kelly Rosenow, Finance
Director Rita DeBord, City Clerk Debbie Moore, Assistant City Attorney Cynthia Martinez,
Police Administrative Assistant Terri Greer

The meeting was called to order by Chairman Johnson at 2:03 p.m.

VI.          Public Safety Computer System

DeBord provided the committee with an update and organization chart for YAKCORP, the
task force completing the RFP process for the County-wide public safety records
management system. Subcommittees are currently meeting to evaluate needs in various
aspects of public safety. She expects to have vendors demonstrating their products by late
this year or early next year.

Zais advised that staff is also looking to identify a funding source for this project.

      VII.      Security Measure for City Clerks Office

Moore is proposing to install security glass at the Clerk’s counter similar to what is installed
across the hall from her in Utility Services and the Cashier’s desk. Due to the layout of the
clerk’s office, they have one employee who is essentially alone at the counter and frequently
has to deal with hostile or disturbed citizens.

Zais advised that this would be funded out of the current City Hall maintenance budget.

The committee had no objections.

      VIII.     Gang Ordinance

Martinez advised that there were two sections of the gang ordinance that were inadvertently
left out of the body of the ordinance when the ordinance was revised, although they were
included in the index of the ordinance. This is a housekeeping measure to correct the
omission.

It was MOVED by Lover and SECONDED by Ensey to pass the ordinance on to the full
council with a do-pass recommendation. Motion PASSED unanimously.

      IX.       Title 6, Public Safety Code Update Project

Martinez advised that as part of the consolidated RMS system, the Legal department is
undertaking a review of Title 6 of the municipal code (the Public Safety Code) to ensure that
it is in it’s best form before the RMS system is implemented. Some RCW’s have not been


                                                  5
adopted by the City into the Municipal Code that should be adopted, so there will be drafts
of updates to the criminal code being presented to the committee in the future.

   X.      Violent Crimes Task Force

Granato and Rosenow presented an update of the Violent Crimes Task Force. There is
currently a recommendation to have co-commanders of the Task Force to facilitate a
prevention/intervention component to the Task Force.

   XI.     Other Business

A review of the Police grants was conducted. The total of grants for the year is over
$400,000.

   XII.    Adjournment

The meeting was adjourned to executive session for a police personnel issue at 2:37.

                         Yakima City Council Committee Meeting
                         Council Economic Development Committee
                              Wednesday, October 1, 2008
                                       4:00 p.m.

Members present: Micah Cawley and Rick Ensey Absent: Neil McClure
Staff: Dave Zabell, Bill Cook, Michael Morales, Bruce Benson, Randy Beehler, Doug Mayo,
Jerry Robertson
Invited guests:       Glen Durall, Appletree Construction

Appletree Construction request for ―master plan review‖ for multi-family construction

Bill Cook outlined the City’s current procedures for single family and duplex ―Master Plan‖
review. The charge for the master plan review is currently set at 10% of the cost of the
building permit fee. Appletree Construction is requesting a similar process for master plan
review for multifamily construction greater than a duplex. Bill Cook reported that he and
Glen Durall had talked about the request prior to the committee meeting, and staff’s
recommendation would be to charge 20% of the building permit fee for the larger multifamily
master plan review due to the additional complexity of the plans. Discussion included a
brief outline of the review process that would be required for the large project that Appletree
is working on. Micah stated that meeting at 15% could work. Rick suggested 10%. Jerry
Robertson gave some more detailed examples of what would occur on the duplicate plan
review. The cost difference between 10% and 20% on this particular project would save the
developer approximately $15,000. Rick moved and Micah seconded a motion that the
Committee would recommend the 10% fee to the full Council. The motion carried 2-0 (Neil
McClure absent). Jerry asked if the Committee would consider a recommendation about
the number of units. The Committee recommended a maximum of six units.

Scenic and 80 Avenue Annexation



                                              6
Bruce Benson reported that the City has been presented with a signed annexation petition
for four of the six properties included in this area. The City did not solicit the annexation.
The four signatures total more than the 75% of assessed value that is required for
annexation. The two parties that have not signed the petition would be able to speak at the
hearing. Rick moved and Micah seconded a motion for forward the annexation to the full
Council and recommended Council approval. The motion carried 2-0.

Public Service Announcements for Changes to City Policies and Procedures

Micah stated that anything that is related to a change in how the City supplies its direct
services should be communicated to the public as effectively as possible. Randy Beehler
said that the City’s practice has traditionally been to rely on our own distribution methods
and free media coverage, but we have produced a few public service announcements
(PSA). An incentive for the media to give a little better placement for our free public service
announcements would be to buy advertising in conjunction with the PSA. The community
relations budget does have some money available each year for advertising. Micah asked
Randy to develop a plan for discussion at the November 5 Committee meeting. Randy will
begin by talking to some local media representatives about the costs and the process.

2008 Community Redevelopment Deductions (CRD) Allocations

The Committee reviewed the list of 2008 applicants and the scoring which was done by the
Commercial Revitalization Deductions Allocations Committee. The city received over
$33,000,000 in applications for the $12,000,000 that is available for 2008. The Economic
Development Committee recommends the allocations be approved by the full Council as is.

Other Business

Micah reported that he has had comments from citizens regarding various blighted
properties, and he would like to see this issue move forward. Bill Cook suggested that
various options could be discussed at an executive session of the Council.

The next regular meeting of the Council Economic Development Committee is November 5,
2008. The November agenda will include:

      Discussion regarding public service announcements
      Consideration of professional real estate broker services agreement

Guests: Esther Huey of Southeast Community Center, Henry Beauchamp of OIC, Luz
Gutierrez of RCDR, and Lynn Kittleson.

   1. HUD Complaint Letter
      Mr. Jackie Brown recently submitted a complaint letter to HUD regarding the
      Southeast Community Center (SECC). HUD forwarded the letter to the City of
      Yakima for follow up.

       Henry Beauchamp gave a brief history of the SECC. Currently OIC is managing the
       SECC under a five year contract with the City of Yakima. Also, the City Parks and
       Recreation Department has a three year contract with the Americorp Program which
       operates out of the center.

       Ester Huey gave an explanation of the services available at the center. The services
       are related to health, education, and employment issues. The services have
       changed over the years. The changes are due in part to the entry of the Farmer
       Workers Clinic and Yakima Neighborhood Health Services to the southeast Yakima
       community. Ms. Huey has drafted a letter of response that further explains all of this
       (attached).

       Chris Waarvick explained the contract with the Americorp Program and SECC.
       Parks and Recreation manages the fiscal portion of the program and SECC
       operates the service portion of the program. The funding received from the City of
       Yakima is through a grant. Approximately $75,500 is from the grant and the SECC
       is required to generate the same dollar amount.

       Office of Neighborhood Development provides reimbursement of the cost of
       maintenance at SECC.

       In the contract with OIC, the SECC is required to have an advisory committee. The
       City Council Nominating Committee has reviewed the applications and is going to
       interview the applicants. The SECC Advisory Committee will be made up of seven
       community members and will serve in an advisory capacity to Council, staff and the
       operators of the SECC. The Council may also appoint ex officio members as the
       Council deems necessary to act in an advisory capacity to the committee.

Other Business
      Office of Neighborhood Development purchased the property at 201 S 8th Street in
      2005 with HOME funding. HOME regulations state that when starting a project,
      which in this case would start with the purchase of the property, work must
      commence within one year and completion of the project within five years. The
      project is within a year and a half of the five year deadline. A draft outline will be
      brought to the committee at the November meeting so that final decisions on the
      project can be made.

       A request was made to have a public input meeting in Spanish for the Hispanic
       community in Yakima. There will be a meeting to inform the Hispanic community on
       October 22, 2008 at 6:00 pm at the Ramirez Child Center. This meeting is not a
       public input meeting required by HUD.

Discussion:

    Randy Beehler presented the results of the Council’s Strategic Priorities by both the
     individual members of the City Council and from the on-line survey. He provided
     clarification of the statistical data gathered and advised that the ranking of the
     Strategic Priorities from the on-line survey is not statistically valid and cautioned
     placing too much emphasis on the current results. (There were 14 responses from
     the on-line survey.)

    The Committee determined more participation in the survey ranking of the Strategic
     Priorities would be beneficial. The Committee agreed to:

          o   A News Release to the community advising the public of the on-line survey.

          o   October’s City of Yakima ―Issues Brief,‖ which will be highlighting the 2009
              Budget, should also mention the on-line survey.

          o   The survey results will be shared with the City Council and may be discussed
              during the January 2009 City Council Retreat.

    The Budget Committee will apply the prioritized Strategic Priorities to the services
     provided by the City and link them to the 2010 department budgets in an effort to
     establish service priorities for future budget adjustments as needed.

ITEM 6

ITEM TITLE: Public Meeting to consider the final plat of Marvin Gardens submitted by
Opportunities Industrialization Center of Washington (OIC) and Yakima Valley Partners
Habitat for Humanity and extend the deadline for approving the final plat.

SUBMITTED BY: William R. Cook, Director of Community & Economic Development

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Jeff Peters, Associate Planner, 575-6163

SUMMARY EXPLANATION:
The Plat of Marvin Gardens is a 20-lot subdivision located at in the vicinity of 3000 – 3100
Hathaway Ave. In open Council session on January 18, 2005 the Hearing Examiner's
recommendation to approve this preliminary plat was accepted and preliminary plat
approval was granted subject to conditions.

The City Engineer's office has inspected the plat, as well as, all completed improvements
and has accepted a financial security for all improvements outstanding left on this plat. The
City Engineer has also signed the plat in affirmation of this fact. The Planning Division has
likewise reviewed the final plat and finds it also to be in substantial conformance with the
terms and conditions of the preliminary plat decision.

YMC 14.20.210 sets forth the following process for final plat approval:

A. Upon receipt of a proposed final plat, the City Council shall at its next public meeting set
a date for consideration of the final plat. Notice of the date, time, and location of the public
meeting shall be given to the subdivision applicant, Surveyor, City Engineer, Office of
Environmental Planning, and the Yakima County Health Officer at least four days prior to
the date of the public meeting.

B. The City Council shall review the final plat during the public meeting and shall
approve the final plat if the Council determines that the final plat conforms to the
conditions of preliminary plat approval and applicable state laws and meets the
requirements of this title as they existed when the preliminary plat was approved.
C. Upon approving any final plat, the City Council shall authorize the Mayor to sign the final
plat as evidence of City Council approval. (Ord. 98-65 § 2 (part), 1998).

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Adopt the resolution authorizing the Mayor to grant an

             future date

 SUBMITTED BY: Chris Waarvick, Director of Public Works
               Ken Wilkinson, Parks and Recreation Manager

 CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Chris Waarvick/576-6415

 SUMMARY EXPLANATION: At the October 4, 2008 City Council meeting, staff was
 directed to bring back for Council consideration a motion on the following question:

 ―Is the Yakima City Council willing to place before the voters at an appropriate time in the
 future a PFD 0.1% sales tax increment allowed by state law for the purpose of funding the
 construction of a Regional Aquatic Center.‖

 In this intervening period, staff also met with Council members and the Mayor to answer
 questions and/or inquiries regarding financing, construction, project risks, and policy
 implications of building a regional aquatics facility. The attached letter, dependent on your
 action on the motion, will be addressed to the mayors and individual Council members of
 both the City of Selah and the City of Union Gap. We are prepared to answer any inquiries
 they may have prior to their vote on a willingness to support this PFD funding mechanism.
 The indication of support by all three cities is recognized as a prerequisite to asking the two
 potential site donors to respond to requests for proposals and subsequent City expenditure
 of funds for proper due diligence.

 STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recognizes this decision is a policy matter for City
 Council to deliberate.

ITEM 10


ITEM TITLE:        Consideration of a Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to
                   execute a Site Use Contract with the Yakima Police Athletic League for
                   the maintenance and operation of the Mille Park Activities Center.

SUBMITTED BY: Samuel Granato, Chief of Police
              Kelly Rosenow, Deputy Chief of Police

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Deputy Chief Rosenow – 575-6210

SUMMARY EXPLANATION: Attached is a resolution authorizing the City Manager to
execute a site use contract with the Yakima Police Athletic League (YPAL), a Washington
non-profit corporation, for the operation, management and maintenance of the Miller Park
Activity Center (MPAC).

The Yakima Police Department participates with YPAL to provide programs and services to
at-risk youth of the community. The City of Yakima is the owner of the MPAC where YPAL
is located. Previously, the City had an agreement with the Yakima Valley Farmworkers
Clinic to operate and maintain the MPAC. The Yakima Valley Farmworkers Clinic has
provided notice to the City of Yakima that this agreement will end on October 31, 2008.
YPAL has the expertise to manage the facility and continue to provide programs based out
of the MPAC.

While at this time there is no cost associated with this contract it is anticipated the City and
YPAL will have discussions sometime in the mid-year of 2009 in regards to possible future
compensation to YPAL from the City. The proposed contract does require the City to bear
the cost of major maintenance expenses, such as heating/air conditioning failures or repair,
parking lot maintenance, roofing, and other structural repairs.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: It is recommended that the Council adopt the resolution

ITEM *11

ITEM TITLE: Consideration of a Resolution authorizing execution of a ―Construction
           Management Agreement‖ with Olympic Associates Company in an amount not
           to exceed One Hundred Ninety Five Thousand Dollars ($195,000), to provide
           construction management services for improvements to the Capitol Theatre

SUBMITTED BY: Bill Cook, Director CED

CONTACT: Michael Morales, Deputy Director CED, 575-3533

SUMMARY EXPLANATION: The Capitol Theatre Committee presented a multi-phase
expansion plan to the City Council at a study session on March 25, 2008. As the project is
funded primarily from a Public Facilities District, funds will be administered by the city and a
formal Request for Qualifications was conducted to select an architect. The city council
approved a contract with Traho Architecture for these services.

As the project will utilize the General Contractor-Construction Manager (GCCM) process for
bid and construction, the city also needs to engage a consultant, separate from the
architect, to carry out these tasks and manage the project in the city’s interest. This is a
requirement for receiving certification from the state of Washington to utilize the GCCM
process.

City staff, in conjunction with Traho Architects and the Capitol Theatre, issued a request for
qualifications from three firms that have experience with GCCM. After a review of
qualifications and experience, Olympic Associates was recommended for the contract.

Under the proposed agreement, Olympic Associates will begin its work with the city by
preparing the proposal package and presenting to the state certification board for GCCM,
and will stay involved with the project through construction. The remainder of Olympic’s
scope of work is more specifically described in Exhibit ―A‖ of the attached agreement.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff recommends approval of the contract.


ITEM *12

ITEM TITLE:        Resolution Authorizing Acceptance of Federal Funds Through the
                  Department of Justice, and Authorizing Corresponding Agreement with
                  the Bureau of Justice Assistance.

SUBMITTED BY:          Samuel Granato, Chief of Police

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Kelly Rosenow, Deputy Police Chief – 575-6210

SUMMARY EXPLANATION: The City has proposed to the US Department of Justice a
three-year crime prevention/intervention program to coordinate with police emphasis patrol
sweeps in targeted high crime neighborhoods. Congress has mandated the DOJ Bureau of
Justice Assistance to make available $335,381.00 to the City of Yakima to facilitate the



                                              14
project.   The attached resolution authorizes the City Manager to act as the official
representative to accept the grant.

The funds will be used for wages and benefits for a full-time gang prevention officer to
coordinate the Yakima GREAT program, to compensate Codes Enforcement project related
overtime and to contract for crime prevention and public awareness programs.

These federally mandated funds require no local matching funds

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Adopt resolution authorizing acceptance of federal funds


ITEM *13

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Adopt this Resolution authorizing and directing the City Manager
and City Clerk of the City of Yakima to execute the Intergovernmental Cooperative Purchasing
Agreement with Roza Irrigation District.

                                             17
ITEM 18

ITEM TITLE: Consideration of adoption of an Ordinance amending Chapter 11.04 of the
            Yakima Municipal Code to create a new section 11.04.060 establishing
            procedures and fees for reviewing a ―Master Plan‖ residential building permit
            application.

SUBMITTED BY: William R. Cook, Director of Community and Economic Development
Department

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: William R Cook / 509-575-6113

SUMMARY EXPLANATION:
Background
Historically the City of Yakima has followed a process in place with Yakima County, and has
accepted and approved ―Master Plans‖ for residential single family, duplex and townhomes.
A ―Master Plan‖ is an application to build an exact duplicate of a previously reviewed (under
the same edition of the International Building Code) and approved building plan with all
professional license seals current at the time of resubmittal. The designation of a ―Master
Plan‖ entitles the applicant to a reduction in their plan review fee. Ordinance 2005-06
establishes the plan review fee for a building at 65% of the building permit fee. For a
―master plan‖ review this number is reduced to 10% of the building permit fee.

Proposed amendment to Chapter 11.04
Recently the Department of Community and Economic Development received a request
from Glen Durall, representing Appletree Construction, requesting the City extend the
―Master Plan‖ program to multifamily development projects (i.e. greater than a duplex).

Although the argument to reduce plan review fees for these larger, more complex
residential structures is sound, there are some differences between reviewing a single
family or duplex residential structure under the International Residential Code and larger
residential structures under the International Building Code. Yes, the amount of staff time
to review an identical plan is less, but in the case of multifamily projects, is still more than a
single family or duplex plan. For example, multifamily residential projects trigger:
            A requirement for sprinklers which in turn requires verification of adequate fire
flow, fire apparatus access and fire hydrant location;
            Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility is triggered for multifamily
projects;
            Projects larger than a duplex should be reviewed at a City Design Services
Team (DST) meeting involving all City departments and private utilities;
            The Airport Safety Overlay (ASO) is triggered for buildings over 35 feet in height.

Prior to the October 1, 2008 Council Economic Development Committee meeting, I spoke to
Glen Durall by phone and in person to reach an agreement on a recommendation from both
of us to set the plan review fee for multifamily projects at 20% of the building permit fee.
Unfortunately this agreement did not come out in the Committee meeting, and based on the
information available to them, the Committee recommended a fee of 10%; the same as
currently applied to smaller, less complex ―Master Plan‖ applications.




                                               18
The Ordinance before you has 10% for the fee for a ―Master Plan‖ for multifamily projects,
reflecting the Council Economic Development Committee recommendation. However, we
ask that Council consider the full impact of the distinction between a single family, duplex or
townhome residential structure and a more complex multifamily structure, and approve a
20% fee for these multifamily projects.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Pass Ordinance

BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: Recommended for approval by the Council
Economic Development Committee at their October 1, 2008 meeting


ITEM 19

ITEM TITLE: Consideration of an Ordinance amending Chapter 7.90 of the Yakima
Municipal Code to ―Transit‖; revising the schedule of fares for the City’s public transportation
system; and adding section 7.90.020 to the Yakima Municipal Code

SUBMITTED BY: Chris Waarvick, Director of Public Works
              Ken Mehin, Transit Manager

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Ken Mehin/576-6415

SUMMARY EXPLANATION:
Public hearings were conducted on September 16 and 23, 2008, receiving public comments
about proposals to increase transit fares. Participation results of a two-day passenger
survey (September 24 & 25, 2008) were also presented. The last fare increase took place
in 1995. The fare increase would offset a portion of increased fuel and operational costs.

At the Study Session held on October 14, 2008, staff was directed to prepare legislation
increasing walk-on fares for Adults ($0.75), Youth ($0.50), and Reduced ($0.35). Passes
would remain at the current rate and Dial-A-Ride continues to be double the walk-on price
($1.50).

The fare adjustments will be factored into the 2009 operating budget. The Transit Fare
increase would take effect January 1, 2009.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Staff respectfully requests City Council to pass the
Ordinance authorizing the Transit Fare adjustments as described in the attached
Ordinance.

BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: The Council Transit/Transportation
Committee supports processing the fare adjustment through the full Council.

ITEM *20

ITEM TITLE: An ordinance relating to Public Safety and Morals; amending chapter 6.11 of
the City of Yakima Municipal Code pertaining to Criminal Street Gangs by adding the
language of sections 6.11.080 entitled Juvenile Offenders and 6.11.120 entitled
Severability.

SUBMITTED BY: Cynthia Martinez, Senior Assistant Attorney

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Cynthia Martinez, Senior Assistant City Attorney
                          575-6033

SUMMARY EXPLANATION: On June 10, 2008, the Yakima City Council adopted chapter
6.11 of the City of Yakima Municipal Code entitled Criminal Street Gangs. The approved
chapter 6.11 listed sections 6.11.080 and 6.11.120 within the index but the full language of
these sections did not appear within the body of the chapter. A preliminary draft reviewed
and studied by the City Council did include the language of these sections. The missing
language does not affect the enforceability of the Criminal Street Gangs Ordinance adopted
by the City Council in June 2008. Section 6.11.080 states that juvenile offenders may not
be subject to the mandatory minimum scheme contained within the Criminal Street Gangs
ordinance; with the exception of criminal traffic offenses, the State of Washington retains
the exclusive right to regulate juvenile sentencing. Section 6.11.120 authorizes the
provisions within chapter 6.11 to be severable; if a portion of the chapter is declared invalid,
the City may still enforce the remainder of the chapter. This amendment is merely a
housekeeping measure to add the missing language before sending chapter 6.11 to the
codifier.

STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Pass Ordinance.

COUNCIL COMMITTEE/ BOARD/COMMISSION RECOMMENDATION: The Council
Public Safety Committee unanimously recommends the full Council adopt the proposed
amendments.

SUBMITTED BY: William R. Cook, Director of Community and Economic Development
Department

CONTACT PERSON/TELEPHONE: Joe Caruso, Acting Codes Manager -- 509-575-6257

SUMMARY EXPLANATION:
In January of 2007, the City Council passed a resolution authorizing the Yakima County
Homeless Network to use two churches, First Baptist Church and the Vineyard Church, in
the downtown area for temporary emergency cold weather shelters.

This year, the Yakima County Homeless Network has requested Vineyard Church to shelter
the women and First Baptist Church to shelter the men. In addition, a need for homeless
couples has developed and the First Baptist Church will be used as a shelter for



                                           21
approximately six (6) homeless couples. The policy is to be valid November and December
2008, and January, February and March 2009.

Temporary Shelters

The proposed Temporary Emergency Shelter Program sets minimum standards and
requirements for cold weather emergency shelters. Requirements set out in the policy
focus on the temporary volunteer managed characteristic of these shelters. The floor plan
configuration of the homeless persons within each of the churches would be reviewed and
approved by the Building/Fire Official.
