He noted a meeting was held with the attorneys involved with the project. Mayor Morrison explained the City Council met in Executive Session, noting Councilmember Farmer was not available for the second session of Executive Session. As a consensus of the City Council, it was determined the issue would be handled on the September 17, 2013. He noted on September 11, 2013, Councilmember Farmer prematurely released information regarding the matter to the media.
  11. 11. Page 354 Minutes Vol. 104 September 17, 2013 City Manager Daniel Valenzuela provided a history of the TriCity Partnership consisting of Cities of Midland, Abilene, and San Angelo. He read a statement into the record: Joint statement on West Texas Water Partnership from City Manager Daniel Valenzuela, Mayor Dwain Morrison The following statement is offered jointly to our City Council, to the public and to the media from myself and from Mayor Morrison. These are the facts: On March 22, 2011, following a presentation by the prior City Manager and his Water Utilities Director, the City Council authorized the City Manager to negotiate and execute a contract with the cities of Abilene and Midland. The resulting agreement calls for the cities to work together to develop strategies that will result in all three communities supplementing their existing water supplies with long-term solutions. This effort is now known as the West Texas Water Partnership. In approving the agreement, the Council required that the contract include a provision under which the negotiated cost to the City of San Angelo would not exceed $100,000. The Council approved the motion unanimously. On May 20, 2011, the City Managers of all three cities, including my predecessor, signed and executed the agreement. The contract was also signed by the City Attorneys of Abilene and of Midland, but not by San Angelo’s City Attorney. The contract was drafted and reviewed by the Austin law firm of Lloyd Gosselink, which is representing the West Texas Water Partnership. The agreement was never submitted to the San Angelo City Attorney for her review and signature. In approving the contract, the City Councils of Abilene and Midland did not stipulate to a maximum expense. The executed contract does not include the $100,000 expense limit mandated by the San Angelo City Council. As a result, per the contract, the purchase orders issued by our Purchasing Division did not include a cap on how much the City of San Angelo could expend under the agreement. On Dec. 15, 2011, the City of San Angelo’s Water Utilities Director at the time received the first invoice from the City of Abilene, which is acting as the Partnership’s fiscal agent. The invoice was for services rendered by Lloyd Gosselink and by two engineering firms whose specialties include water supply evaluation, planning, development and design – those being Enprotec / Hibbs & Todd, and HDR. (It should be noted that Lloyd Gosselink and Enprotect / Hibbs & Todd had previously been assisting Abilene in the development of a new reservoir. Midland and San Angelo agreed to utilize the firms under their existing contracts with Abilene.) San Angelo’s share of the first invoice amounted to $43,259.72. The $100,000 limit mandated by the City Council was surpassed on May 25, 2012. The City of San Angelo has honored the signed and binding interlocal agreement. To date, the City of San Angelo has paid a total of $185,334.38. Another $62,527.38 is pending payment. That brings the total amount paid and owed to $247,861.76. The professional services rendered to date involve engineering, environmental, legal and political evaluation of a myriad of options for future regional water supplies. Details of these evaluations are protected by a confidentiality clause in the interlocal agreement. This clause ensures that sensitive information that could compromise the three cities’ ability to develop future water supplies is protected. What we can say is the work of the partnership’s attorneys and engineers have sharply focused efforts on the options most likely to prove successful in developing long-term water sources. Among the factors considered in evaluating possible water supplies are reliability, renewability, cost, feasibility, sustainability, and legal and permitting issues.
  12. 12. Minutes Page 355 September 17, 2013 Vol. 104 In recent discussions with current and former City of San Angelo employees and elected officials, many have said they did not and could not recall the City Council stipulation that expenditures be capped at $100,000. They have said their belief and understanding were that the costs would and should be shared equally among the three cities, which has been the case. One former Council member said had he been aware of the $100,000 limit, he would have sought more funding from the City Council. This Council member said he expected the total cost would well exceed $100,000. And in fact, in approving the agreement, Council members expressed an expectation that the cost would exceed $100,000 and their approval of a budget amendment would be required at that point. I concur with the assessment that this effort will not be inexpensive. This will be a long and involved process that will involve much technical study and analysis by attorneys and engineers with an expertise in water matters. There is no doubt the interlocal agreement and the expenditures were not in keeping with the City Council’s expressly stated instructions. The City of San Angelo has procedures in place to prevent such mistakes. First and foremost, all contracts approved by Council should undergo a legal review by the City Attorney’s office and should require an attorney’s signature. Part of that legal review ensures the contract reflects the expressed and approved desires of the City Council. Again, that did not happen in this case. Because the two staff members who spearheaded the City’s initial involvement in the partnership and the interlocal agreement no longer work for the City, we cannot explain why this procedure was not followed. Had the required legal review occurred, there would have been at least one other level of protection. The purchase orders sought to remit payment under the contract would have reflected the expense cap, per the agreement. Any payment sought above that ceiling would have been red-flagged and rejected. Additionally, it is not unusual for a special account to be established for a project such as this. The authorized amount is then placed into this account, from which all invoices are paid. Payments would be rejected once the account is exhausted. At that point, the City Council could consider increasing or eliminating the cap on expenditures via a budget amendment. Because the interlocal agreement did not include a limit on expenditures, none of these accounting safeguards were in place. During this time span, the City was between City Managers, San Angelo’s involvement in the West Texas Water Partnership was limited to a handful of officials, and the City Council was strongly pressing the need to address the community’s short- and long-term water supply. As a result, I am convinced the failure of the interlocal agreement to reflect the Council’s authorization of the contract was an oversight rather than willful negligence on the part of any former or current employee. I have reached this conclusion after thorough investigations by myself and by the City’s internal auditor. Most of the City Council members, including Mayor Morrison, have concurred with this assessment. Moving forward, I will require the following: • First, all Council-approved contracts will be reviewed by and will include the signature of one of our City attorneys. • Second, our Purchasing Division will continue to ensure that all purchase orders reflect the contract upon which they are based. • Third, separate expenditure accounts will be established for special projects to ensure that spending does not exceed the authorized expense. • Lastly, failure by any employee to adhere to these procedures will result in disciplinary action. Additionally, in this particular instance, more information about the West Texas Water Partnership’s work will be shared with the City Council. That change has already been
  13. 13. Page 356 Minutes Vol. 104 September 17, 2013 instituted. I plan to update the Council about the activities of the West Texas Water Partnership in executive session on a quarterly basis. We want each of the seven elected Council members to be knowledgeable of and comfortable with the Partnership’s efforts. In conclusion, it is vital for the City Council, the public and our partners in Abilene and Midland to unquestionably know Mayor Morrison and I remain fully supportive of and committed to the West Texas Water Partnership. The impetus that sparked this cooperative regional effort remains as real today as it was when our three communities came together two- plus years ago. That is, we share a common, dire need … to develop water sources that will allow our communities to thrive for generations to come. And we share the sincere belief that we can accomplish more good for each of our communities – and for the whole of West Texas and its smaller municipalities – by working in concert with one another rather than in conflict against one another. This is true politically; we need the voices of all of West Texas’ state representatives and state senators speaking in unison if we are to be heard above the chorus of elected officials from more populous areas east of I-35. This is true financially; combining resources is the wisest use of taxpayers’ dollars. It ensures we don’t duplicate the need for items such as engineering services or infrastructure, and it allows us to stretch our dollars further in reaching even farther out to the most reliable water sources. And this is true regionally. We are neighbors; what’s good for San Angelo, Abilene and Midland is good for Ballinger, Robert Lee, Big Spring, Coleman and a whole host of small towns throughout West Texas. Frankly, Abilene and Midland need San Angelo to make this quest for more water work. Likewise, San Angelo needs them. Mayor Morrison and I urge this Council and our citizens to continue to support this regional effort. It may well be the engine for ensuring that San Angelo and our neighbors have continued access to the most essential and the most precious natural resource a community and its people need. Daniel Valenzuela, City Manager City of San Angelo Mayor Morrison further clarified when the project was presented in April 2011, Council Members were aware there would be several phases in this process, specifically noting the confidentiality of the project research. He expressed had the expenditure issue been presented to Council, the expenditure would have been approved due to the nature and dire straits of the City’s need for water. Mayor Morrison noted Councilmember Farmer was also in support of the partnership, as written in her letter released to the public. He apologized for the oversight and noted the item has been presented on the agenda providing full transparency to the public. Councilmember Wardlaw requested clarification regarding the caption as listed on the draft agenda and final agenda noting he considered the caption to be too broad and general. Referencing Councilmember Farmer’s letter, Councilmember Wardlaw stated she alleged there were recent modifications made to 2012 minutes noting tampering with a government documents is a felony offense. He suggested the City Clerk provide clarity as to whether the minutes were modified, and if modified, present those modifications whether grammatical or substantiated. City Clerk Alicia Ramirez explained administrative changes to the minutes are common; however, substantial changes made to a set of minutes previously approved by the City Council are not made without submitting such changes to the City Council for final review and approval. Responding to the question regarding the caption wording, Mr. Valenzuela informed it is common for numerous changes between the draft agenda document to the final published form. He noted the individuals involved included the City Attorney and Assistant City Manager/Chief Financial Officer Michael Dane. Mr. Valenzuela noted the caption, as written, was to ensure staff received specific instruction and approval to proceed with the payment of expenditure associated with Phase I on the interlocal agreement as well as providing further direction to proceed with future expenditures.
  14. 14. Minutes Page 357 September 17, 2013 Vol. 104 Mr. Valenzuela further explained the comment regarding previous unauthorized expenditures for furniture noting the unauthorized expenditure for the partnership happened prior to the furniture issue. He remarked City procedures were not followed on the partnership contract; stating these were two totally different issues. General discussion was held on Councilmember Farmer’s access to various documents pertaining to the Phase I expenditures, related dates the information was available, and Ms. Farmer’s complaints addressed in her letter regarding accessibility to the documents. Councilmember Fleming commented on Councilmember Farmer’s statement regarding Council conducting an illegal executive session meeting on September 3, 2013 noting and clarifying Ms. Farmer was aware of the second executive session but chose not to attend. He spoke in support of the partnership between Midland and Abilene. He acknowledged staff’s oversight of the expenditures; however, Mr. Valenzuela explained the oversight in executive session, which Ms. Farmer chose not to attend. Councilmember Fleming questioned Ms. Farmer’s press release noting questionable ethical behavior. He further commented staff did apprise Council of the $3M project costs during the last executive session. Motion, to authorize funding and payment for City’s proportionate share of costs incurred for services pursuant to the interlocal agreement between cities of Abilene, Midland and San Angelo, effective April 9, 2011 (West Texas Water Partnership), and ratification of all actions already taken and payments made pursuant to said interlocal agreement since its effective date, direction to staff to present quarterly reports, to include Phase I $262,540.00 only, and with the stipulation any future expenditures, including Phase II, will be presented to City Council for review and approval, was made by Councilmember Silvas and seconded by Councilmember Fleming. Mr. Dane explained the various cost associated with Phase I in the amount of $262,540 and Phase II at an estimated cost of $1,016,783 of the project. He further noted the documents should remain confidential as outlined in the agreement, staff will seek reimbursement of funds from City of San Angelo Development Corporation, as well as provide quarterly updates. Responding to a question from Councilmember Farmer, Mayor Morrison expressly requested Ms. Farmer maintain the confidentiality of the interlocal agreement as it pertains to subject matters explicitly discussed in Executive Session. Councilmember Farmer left the meeting at 10:44 a.m. and returned at 10:48 a.m. Public Comments were made by Citizens Jim Turner, JB Hall, Steve Salmon, Gloria Dewitt, and Gary Cortese, Mayor Morrison further clarified and as a policy any future contracts will not be signed by the City Manager unless the contract has been reviewed and approved by the City Attorney. He also clarified the motion on the floor was explicitly to resolve and take action on Phase I expenditures. A vote was taken on the motion on the floor. AYE: Morrison, Fleming, Self, Silvas, Vardeman, and Farmer. NAY: Wardlaw. Motion carried 6-1. Motion, to approve future funding for Phase II at an estimated cost of $1,016,783, and to continue to be a partner in the West Texas Water Partnership, and with the understanding any future payments will be presented to City Council for discussion and approval, was made by Councilmember Fleming and seconded by Councilmember Silvas. Responding to a question from Councilmember Vardeman, Mayor Morrison suggested handling further discussion, not only in retrospect but as to the future of the matter, in executive session. Mr. Vardeman concurred. Mr. Valenzuela suggested the project engineer present the information to Council. After further discussion and in conclusion, Councilmember Silvas withdrew his motion, and Councilmember

Summary: A quote was sought and received from Frazer, LTD through the Houston-Galveston Council of Governments (HGAC) contract number AM-10-12 for the removal, refurbishing, and remounting of existing ambulance boxes already used by the San Angelo Fire Department. The Houston-Galveston Council of Governments is a state-wide, competitively bid purchasing cooperative. Vendors submit pricing based on a set of published specifications, and are awarded contracts based on their submissions and their applicability to award guidelines. This process is very similar to the City’s Request for Bid process, but saves the City money associated with the logistics of the formal bid process. As members of HGAC, the City of San Angelo can purchase off these competitively bid contracts as allowed by state law. History: The City has established a replacement cycle for ambulance chassis of two per year. This cycle replaces each ambulance chassis and the refurbishing of the patient boxes at approximately five year intervals to ensure the department continues to operate reliable emergency transportation vehicles. Existing City-owned ambulance boxes are removed, cleaned, updated, and remounted on the new chassis. Two replacement ambulance chassis were previously approved by council on March 5, 2013, have been purchased, and are waiting to be fitted. Financial Impact: The City will purchase the remount service from Frazer ($72,900) off HGAC contract #AM-10-12 from capital account 501-9000-800-07-42. Total budget for the project is $156,263, which includes the refurbishing of ambulance boxes and replacement of equipment used in the operation of ambulance services.

This agenda item is a request to approve a Second Amendment to the Interlocal Agreement approved by City Council on October 20, 2009. History: City Council minutes from the previous meetings are dated May 2, 2006, October 16, 2007, August 19, 2008, October 20, 2009, and February 16, 2010, and which include prior discussion over the consolidation and interlocal agreement. Discussions regarding the benefits to be gained from the consolidation of the San Angelo Transit System and the Concho Valley Rural Transit District (CVRTD) have centered on the financial/funding, operational, technical, and legal chapters that will be involved. The Goodman Corporation (TGC) had been retained by the CVCOG through funding provided by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) to gather the necessary data and information to facilitate a smooth transition from two separate transit systems to one consolidated system that will serve the City of San Angelo and the 13 counties within the CVCOG’s planning region. The following benefits were to be derived thru the consolidation: Better connectivity between the rural transit program and the Concho Valley 12 County Area and the San Angelo urban system; Elimination of inefficiencies in para-transit trip scheduling which currently exist in the San Angelo area;
  29. 29. A reduction of the City of San Angelo general fund contribution to transit services; The provision of more cost- and service-effective transit services within the City of San Angelo; and An increase in the ability to leverage both state and federal financial resources to support transit for the City of San Angelo and the Concho Valley Rural Transit District. The CVTD has been operating the transit system since September of 2006. The local contributions were $153,280 in 2006, $198,304.68 in 2007 and $212,996.16 in 2008. The funding amount requested for 2009 was $212,996.16. On February 16, 2010, an amendment to the Interlocal Agreement increased the local contributions for 2009 to $302,996.16. The additional $90,000.00 allowed the CVTD to undertake special projects in fiscal year 2010 and since to include, but not be limited to: transit oriented development projects related to the multimodal terminal or other transit infrastructure projects, planning projects to identify needs and gaps in services in the City, and operational projects that target meeting the identified unserved or underserved areas in the incorporated area of the City. Special projects evaluation and selection will be reviewed through the City’s budget review process. The Amendment also allows the CVTD and the City to enter into an agreement for use of City space for parking of CVTD vehicles and use of available City services by CVTD. Compensation for this use will be made by the CVTD to the City in the amount of $120,000.00. This Second Amendment to the Interlocal Agreement extends the term one additional year, commencing September 1, 2013, and ending August 31, 2014. Both parties are allowed to terminate the renewal with a 90 day written notification to the other party.
