AWARDS, PRESENTATION AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

	1)	James Nadeau & Company – Town Audit review	

Mr. Nadeau presented an Executive Summary of the Audit of 2001-2002 Financial 
Statements.  Mr. Nadeau reported that the Town of Jamestown has continued to 
earn an unqualified auditors’ opinion, which is the highest level of assurance 
that can be received. The Town remains in a very strong financial position. 
Every fund of the Town from the smallest special revenue fund to the general 
fund had positive fund equity and positive surplus at February 28, 2002.

Mr. Nadeau reported on specific funds:

General Fund

It was reported that the general fund operating loss for the fiscal year ended 
February 28, 2002 was $151,111; however, the Town’s budgeted loss was $522,773.  
The Town’s operating results exceeded budgeted results to the extent of 
$371,662.  The general fund unreserved fund balance at February 28, 2002 was 
$2,363,179; total fund equity was $3,441,124.  This represents a very strong 
financial position.

School Unrestricted Fund

Mr. Nadeau noted that the School Department’s unrestricted operating fund had an 
operating surplus totaling $296,347 for the fiscal year ended February 28, 2002.  
The School Department’s unreserved fund balance at year-end was $452,949; total 
fund equity was $555,949.

Capital Projects Funds

All the Town’s capital project funds had positive fund equity.  Capital 
Improvement Fund had fund equity in the amount of $911,684;  School Capital 
Improvement Fund had fund equity in the amount of $338,214; Wetland Open Space 
had fund equity in the amount of $15,753; and Library Building Fund had fund 
equity in the amount of $9,042.  Total Capital Projects Funds equity as of 
February 28, 2002 was $1,274,693.

Enterprise Funds

All three of the Town’s enterprise funds generated operating profits for the 
fiscal year ended February 28, 2002 and had positive fund equity at year-end.  
Harbor Management Fund had an operating profit of $2,640 and fund equity of 
$94,701; Water Fund had an operating profit of $199,936 and a fund equity of 
$358,876; the Sewer Fund had an operating profit of $2,158 and a fund equity of 
$788,767.  Total operating profit was $204,734 and a fund equity of 
$1,242,344.In other matters, Mr. Nadeau noted that the fair value of the assets 
of the police pension fund exceed the actuarial accrued liability to the extent 
of $1,043,513.00.  Accordingly, this plan is over funded to this extent as of 
the most recent actuarial valuation date (March 1, 2001).  This represents an 
increase totaling $771,598.00 since the previous actuarial valuation (March 1, 
1998).  Given the carnage in the equity markets of the past two years, the Town 
is encouraged to have a current actuarial valuation performed.

The Town Administrator reported that the actuary study is in the process of 
being completed and it is expected that information will be made available to 
the Council prior to the end of the current budget process.

Councilor Willis suggested that Mr. Nadeau go through his recommendations.  
Additionally, Councilor Willis asked if the funds from the Water and Sewer 
Department were appropriately applied to the correct funds.  Mr. Nadeau 
mentioned that there is an effort to cross bill services and the Town has made 
significant strides in to get those issues squared away.   

Mr. Nadeau noted that one of the tenants for a good internal control system, is 
segregation of accounting release so that no one individual has complete control 
over an entire transaction.  Presently, there are not sufficient personnel to 
segregate those duties.  

Mr. Nadeau reviewed a new financial reporting model by the Governmental 
Accounting Standards Board. Statement Number 34 must be implemented by February 
28, 2004 and will require that the Town present financial statements using the 
full accrual method of accounting.  The new statement also requires the 
reporting of infrastructure fixed assets and the recognition of depreciation 
expense for all funds.  

The Deputy Finance Director, Christine Collins, informed the Council that she 
would be budgeting for the new software in the next Town budget.  Councilor 
Littman inquired into the debt limit that the Town could incur.  Mr. Nadeau 
noted that the Town could borrow 3% of assessed value of real estate; which 
approximates $27,502,364.  As of February 28, 2002, the Town’s debt was under 
the limit by $21,084,004.   Additionally, he noted that sewer bond funds would 
be exempt from this regulation.  

There being no further comments, the Council thanked Mr. Nadeau for his 
attendance.

OPEN FORUM

	1)	Scheduled Requests to Address2) Non-Agenda Requests to Address

Nick Robertson, Carr Lane requested Council’s permission to speak when the 
Council addresses the Highway Barn.

Representative William Murphy updated the Council on the Russian fishing 
vessels.  Mr. Murphy stated that he spoke to RIDEM and was informed that there 
is a possibility that the Russian fishing vessels will be coming back.  Mr. 
Murphy noted that he will be meeting with EDC on Friday at 9:00 AM at Quonset 
and invited the Council to attend.   Mr. Murphy mentioned that there are other 
areas being considered for the dockage of these vessels.

Olafur Gislason, Beavertail Road stated that the seafood industry is growing on 
the island.  Mr. Gislason recommended that the Council take the position that 
Quonset Point would be the appropriate venue for transshipment and subsequent 
freezing of seafood.  This would create jobs and encourage the exportation of 
the fish products that are not commonly used in this area.  Council President 
Settipane commented that RIDEM has promised that the Town would be allowed input 
into any decision to allow these fishing vessels back in this area and requested 
that Representative Murphy keep the Council informed relating to this issue.  

REPORTS OF BOARDS, COMMITTEES AND TOWN OFFICIALS

1) Town Administrator’s report

-------------------------------
Town Administrator's Report
September 9, 2002

The following report consists of items of general interest to the Council. I will 
be pleased to provide any additional clarification or information you require.

A few weeks ago I offered the position of wastewater management coordinator to 
Justin Jobin. Justin accepted the job and has been working about twenty hours a 
week for the past three weeks. He has been working predominantly on public 
education materials while reviewing different software programs. Recently Justin 
assisted with the educational portion of the wastewater management program for 
the Town of Charlestown. With Justin on board, I anticipate the Town's wastewater 
management program will move forward.

I received the attached communication from Bob Sutton, Chief of Planning far 
RIDEM. One of the items RIDEM agreed to, as a condition of the road cut permit, 
was to overlay Fort Wetherill Road from the entrance of the boat ramp parking lot 
at Fort Wetherill Park to the new Fish and Wildlife parking lot. I have reviewed 
this request with Steve Goslee and I had a follow-up conversation with Bob 
Sutton. Included in your package is the schedule for the installation of the new 
electrical cable across the east passage. Since Narragansett Electric anticipates 
installing the cable in October, Steve and I have decided it is best to wait 
until the next oiling/paving season to complete the work on Fort Wetherill road. 
I have no problem with the Town completing the work and being compensated by 
RIDEM for labor, materials, and equipment cost. The work to be completed includes 
skimming the road, followed by resurfacing it with oil and blue stone. Bob Sutton 
is agreeable to waiting until next season and compensating the Town for their 
services.

In the next few weeks, I will place in advertisement an the Providence Journal 
for a Town Engineer. In the past year, a number of Town departments used the 
contracted services of an engineer for various projects. The need for these 
services will continue in the coming year. To help with continuity, it would be 
in the best interest of the Town to have the same individual work on the various 
projects. Currently, I see this person as a consultant and not as an additional 
staff member. As you know we have budgeted for a Town Engineer.

When I was appointed Town Administrator, a condition of my appointment was to 
attend class or take courses, which would lead towards a Masters in Public 
Administration. Following through on their directive, I applied and was accepted 
in URI's Masters in Public Administration Program. As of the end of July I 
completed all required course work, passed the comprehensive exam and received my 
Masters in Public Administration from the University of Rhode Island. I would 
like to thank the current council and past councils (and especially my husband) 
for their support in this endeavor.

For your information I have attached the following documents:

Copies of the most recent test results for the landfill
--------------------------------

In addition to the Town Administrator’s report, the following items were 
discussed.

Jamestown Varrazanno Bridge

The Town Administrator reported that she has spoken to the Director of RIDOT, 
William Ankner and to Joseph Brady regarding the delays on the bridge.  It is 
expected that RIDOT will be in contact with her to discuss ways of alleviating 
this problem.  Additionally, the Town Administrator reported that it is expected 
that the she will meet with RIDOT prior to the beginning of the second half of 
the project, which is scheduled sometime after April.

Health Care 

The Town Administrator invited Council members to a workshop on health care with 
the Trust on October 3, 2002 at 7:30 PM in the Jamestown School.

Noise Ordinance

Brooks Acoustics Corporation will be providing services relating to the proposed 
Noise Ordinance for no more than $1,500.00.  These funds will be taken from 
incidentals and emergencies.  

Community Center Project

The Town Administrator recommended that the town would be using asphalt and next 
year follow up with blue stone and sealing on the side of the Community Center.

Councilor Swain suggested that the project be completed this year rather than 
waiting for next year for the blue stone.   Pat Eannarino requested that the 
Town obtain an opinion from the Town Consulting Engineer, Richard Pastore, as to 
what surface should be considered for that area.

It was the consensus of the Council that the Town Administrator should contact 
Mr. Pastore for an opinion on this and to continue it on the agenda.  

Water Conservation

Councilor Swain, addressing conservation measures, asked why the flower shop and 
the car wash were not on the same water conservation schedule.  Councilor Swain 
noted that the Secret Garden was notified that they could no longer continue 
watering; however, the car wash was extended to 48 inches below capacity before 
they had to discontinue their services.   The Town Administrator reported that 
the Rules and Regulations adopted by the Council specifically note that the 
commercial car wash could continue to operate until the reservoir level is 48 
inches below capacity. It was the consensus of the Council that this be put on 
the next council agenda for a special session of the Board of Water and Sewer 
Commissioners at 6:30 PM on October 15, 2002.

Wastewater Management

Council President Settipane requested that Justin Jobin, the new On-Site 
Wastewater Specialist be on the October 15, 2002 Council agenda to discuss the 
procedure for voluntary compliance of the On-Site Wastewater Ordinance.   The 
Town Administrator reported that Mr. Jobin is currently working on procedure, 
educational materials and application.

Following a discussion by the Council and Town Administrator, it was moved by 
Councilor Willis, seconded by Council President Settipane to discuss all 
wastewater management issues at Town Council meetings.  So unanimously voted. 

	2)	Parks and Recreation memoranduma) Skate Park Bid re: bid received 
from Sam Batterson in the amount of $71,000.00 (recommendation to deny)

Clayton Carlisle, representing the Friends of Jamestown Skaters, presented a 
brief summary of the plans for the skate park.  Mr. Carlisle noted that the 
amount of the bid received is in line with what was anticipated and lower than 
what one would expect a project of this scope would cost.  Mr. Carlisle 
recommended that the Town proceeds with the project and move forward with 
executing the contract upon satisfactory completion of required contractual 
obligations.   Mr. Carlisle informed the Council that if the Town commits to 
signing a contract to construct the facility, the Friends of the Jamestown 
Skaters would continue to coordinate all items, such as site preparation, with 
Matt Bolles. Mr. Carlisle stated that they are hoping to begin the project in 
October.

The Recreation Director Matthew Bolles, informed the Council that he has 
researched other less expensive alternatives for constructing a skate park.  Mr. 
Bolles recommended construction of a modular park with a phenolic fiber laminate 
surface known as skatelite pro.  The surface being recommended is extremely hard 
and friendlier to skaters than concrete.  Additionally, Mr. Bolles stated that a 
modular park could be added on to if the park becomes popular or could be scaled 
down or removed if necessary; all features that a concrete structure would not 
allow.  Mr. Bolles informed the Council that this type of structure could be 
built now with the present funding.   

Councilor Littman inquired if the funds to rehabilitate the basketball court 
could be deferred towards the skate park.  Mr. Bolles reported that the paving 
of the basketball court must be done regardless. 

Steve Lane, Design Committee member for the skate park stated that the committee 
is looking for a commitment from the Town in order to take advantage of matching 
grant funds.   

The Town Solicitor advised that the Town does not have the authority under the 
Charter to guarantee payment for an unfunded project.  

Councilor Swain suggested that it would be necessary to advertise an RFP for the 
modular design and perhaps while that is being done, Mr. Carlisle could work 
with the Town Administrator to renegotiate the bid he has received.  

It was moved by Councilor Swain, seconded by Councilor Willis to task the 
Recreation Director and Town Administrator to put out a bid RFP on a modular 
design skate park consistent with what was previously designed for a board and 
cast version and to have the results of that bid to the Council by the next Town 
Council meeting on October 15, 2002.  So unanimously voted.

b) Theater Drapery Project re: bid received from High Output of Providence in 
the amount of $6,900.00 (recommendation to accept)

Parks and Recreation Director, Mathew Bolles, informed the Council that the 
draperies would replace the present draperies, which are not flame retardant.  

It was moved by Councilor Willis, seconded by Councilor Littman to award the bid 
for the flame-retardant draperies to High Output of Providence for not more than 
$6,900.00.  So unanimously voted.

2) Jamestown Affordable Housing re: Beavertail Lighthouse Lease

It was moved by Councilor Swain, seconded by Councilor Willis to accept the 
communication from Jamestown Affordable Housing.  So unanimously voted. 3) Tree 
Preservation & Protection Committee re: Jamestown Tree Trust Fund

Bob Dolan Tree Committee member, presented a draft of a Trust Donation and 
Stewardship Agreement for the Council’s consideration.  Mr. Dolan informed the 
Council that it is the Tree Committee’s hope that this will promote the donation 
and care of trees on Town owned property.  

It was the consensus of the Council that this be reviewed with the Town 
Administrator and Town Solicitor and placed on the agenda for the next Council 
meeting.			

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

	1)	Highway Barn Site and size (continued from 8/26/2002)

Council President Settipane reviewed the new information recently received on 
cost estimates for the proposed highway facility.  It was the consensus of the 
Council that the site and building cost estimates for the proposed locations 
were too high.  

Councilor Willis commented that she is still very interested in cutting the size 
of the facility down and the way we store the equipment.  Additionally, 
Councilor Willis inquired if we could consider a pole barn type structure in 
order to keep the square footage costs down.  

The Town Administrator recommended keeping the size of the barn at 11,120 sq. 
ft., as recommended by the committee.  This facility, if built as recommended, 
should last the Town for many years.   Additionally, the Town Administrator 
recommended selecting a site and then designing a building for that site.

Nick Robertson, Carr Lane, previous Highway Barn Committee member, stated that 
the Town has spent a lot of money on engineering studies over the last four or 
five years.  In addition, Mr. Robertson noted that both committees studying the 
proposed Highway Barn have made the same recommendations.  Mr. Robertson 
suggested that the Council follow those recommendations. 

Council President Settipane reviewed previous committee recommendations, noting 
that both committees recommended nine bays; seven bays for the Department of 
Public Works - two of which would be heated, one for the Recreation Department 
and one for the Fire Department.  

Council President Settipane introduced a conceptual design of an alternate site 
at Fort Wetherill.  This site consists of approximately 3.50 acres and would 
include rehabilitation of the existing building for use as office and storage 
and for a new facility to be constructed to the west consisting of 8 bays.   It 
was noted that this site would require less funds for site preparation and with 
use of the existing building, less funds for construction.  Additionally, the 
Fire Chief reported that a hook-up for the fire alarm is already located in that 
area and could be tied into for a new facility.  Council President Settipane 
pointed out that the fire alarm hook-up would be an additional $60,000.00 
savings.   

The Council discussed restrictions on the Fort Wetherill property when it was 
acquired by the Town in 1974.  Council President Settipane referenced the 
agreement with the Federal Government whereby those restrictions were released.  
When questioned, Mr. Robertson informed the Council that he was unaware that 
those restrictions had been lifted.

Laszlo Siegmund, consulting engineer informed the Council that he has inspected 
the present facility in the past and would expect it to cost approximately 
$160,000.00 to $180,000.00 to rehabilitate the existing building.

Other comments taken from the public included the following suggestions:

The possibility of constructing a less costly passive facility in conjunction 
with the more costly active facility.  

The need for a master plan of Town facilities, which would include a 
comprehensive plan of present and future needs.

Upon the end of the presentation, the Town Administrator stated that this plan 
seems doable. It was the consensus of the Council that the Highway Barn be 
continued to the next Town Council meeting for further discussion on costs and 
zoning on October 15, 2002.

It was moved by Council President Settipane, seconded by Councilor Swain to 
include the conceptual design documents into the record.  So unanimously voted.

The Council took a five-minute break at 9:50 PM.  

2) Jamestown Historical Society re:  management of Conanicut Battery on Prospect 
Hill (continued 8/26/2002)

The Town Solicitor informed the Council that he has reviewed the communication 
from the Jamestown Historical Society and suggested that a memorandum of 
understanding, with an annual renewal be considered. It was moved by Councilor 
Swain, seconded by Councilor Littman to authorize the Town Administrator to work 
with the Town Solicitor to finalize the details outlined in the communication 
between the Jamestown Historical Society, dated August 2002 for the maintenance 
and continuance of the quality of work done there.  So unanimously voted.

	3)	Sidewalk repairs a) Assessment of sidewalks on Narragansett Avenue, 
Pemberton Avenue (near apartments) and the waterfront area at East Ferry 
(continued from 09/09/2002)

The Town Administrator informed the Council that a report on sidewalk repairs 
would be available at the next Town Council meeting.  Council President 
Settipane requested that the report also contain a record of repairs made.  It 
was the consensus of the Council that this be continued to the next Town Council 
meeting on October 15, 2002.

	4)	Wastewater Management Plan (continued from Water and Sewer meeting 
09/16/2002)

No action taken.

The Town Solicitor informed the Council that this is in reference to the 
installation of a float that the Town has never received an assent to install.  
Mr. Munger has been advised that the float must be removed.

curbing.  It is expected that this will be completed by the end of October or 
November.  

Representative Long informed the Council that it was his understanding from the 
Town Administrator and Public Works Director that the installation of granite 
curbing could be used to alleviate the problem.  Mr. Long informed the Council 
that he has requested that the State provide assistance to the Town by providing
