6)   Memorandum from the Town Planner, Conservation Commission and the
President of the  Conanicut Island Land Trust re: RI Natural Heritage
Preservation Commission - Open Space Grants
Councilor President Amerigian:  I liked your (to Town Planner)
recommendations, but I am not sure where we would come up with the money.
       Councilor Murphy:  Mr. Powell and I talked two or three weeks ago
about the wetland mitigation fund, which was established when the cross
island highway went through and there were some monies put in there in
lieu of them creating other wetlands.
      Right now there is a question as to how much money is in that fund.
       I understand the Town borrowed from the fund to acquire the highway
barn property at Fort Wetherill.
       It is my understanding that this was borrowed and would be
replaced.   Administrator: There is some money in that account, but  keep
in mind that the Jamestown Shores Beach was bought with that money.
      I have here the minutes of that meeting where Council voted to use
that money for the Fort Wetherill property.
      It was voted that the Town would replace that money with any
proceeds that the Town made once they relocated the highway barn and
leased that facility out.
      Councilor Murphy: Were there any strings attached to that money when
it came from the state?  Administrator:  Based on what is in the minutes,
no.   The Council did get  an opinion from the Solicitor and he said there
were no strings attached to the money.
      Councilor Murphy:  So how much money do we have?  Administrator:
About $42,000-$43,000.
      Councilor Wright:  I think we should authorize Mr. Powell, Ms. Bryer
and Mr. Hubbard to come up with recommendations as to where they think we
might apply for grants to use this money.
      Mr. Powell: Ms. Bryer, Mr. Hubbard and I  sat down with this last
week and brain stormed a whole series of properties on the island that we
thought would be candidates for this.
       This is going to be a very competitive grant program.
      This is the first time this money has been available since 1986.
      We need to look at the pieces of property that have the highest
likelihood of winning approval.
      We know what a lot of this criteria is already.
     We now need to sit down with the criteria that the state has given us
and fit these properties into that criteria and see which properties score
the highest.
      We would then forward the list to Council for review and we may ask
that this be done in executive session because it will involve real estate
and peoples properties.
      Ms. Bryer: I know we have limited funds to do this.  RIDEM has
indicated that  funds will be available next year and the year after.
       We would be looking at those years more favorably, once we get our
list together we will have more of a strategy for next year when funds
become available.
      Hopefully, put it in next years budget or if we have a land bank
funds could be used from that.
      Mr. Powell:  Would like to get a list of priorities together. 
Following continued discussion, motion by Council President Amerigian,
seconded by Councilor Murphy to authorize the Town Planner, Conservation
Commission Chair and Mr. Hubbard to get a prioritized list together and
report back to the Council on April 27.  So unanimously voted.      
 
Frederick W. Brown, Building/ Zoning Official arrived at 8:00 PM

7)   Memorandum from the Town Planner re: 1998 Community Development Block
Grant Program
Following clarification of a few items, motion by Councilor Murphy,
seconded by Councilor Dolce to approve the filing of the 1998 Small Cities
Community Development Block Grant Program application for an amount
not-to-exceed $250,000.
      Funds are to be used for the provision of employment opportunities,
housing opportunities, and community facilities/services principally
benefitting low and moderate income individuals and families; and in
accordance with the list attached hereto.  So unanimously voted.
8)   Memorandum from the Building Official re: proposed permit fee
schedule revisions (continued from 03/09/98)
Mr. Brown: Fees have not been changed since 1985.  Councilor Murphy: Are
you in favor of changing?  Mr. Brown: Yes, I have been in contact with the
RI Department of Planning.
      I have checked with surrounding communities on their fee structure.
      We are the lowest in the State.
      Motion by Council President Amerigian, seconded by Councilor Murphy
to advertise the proposed permit fee schedule revisions for public hearing
at the next regular meeting on April 13.
      So unanimously voted.  Solicitor: The amendment would be effective
upon adoption.   

9)   Fort Wetherill Committee re: appointment of Jamestown representative
to the State Architectural Search Committee
Councilor Dolce: I am hoping to have a meeting of the Fort Wetherill
Committee by this weekend.

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

1)   Response from the RI Turnpike and Bridge Authority re: elimination of
tolls at the Mount Hope Bridge
a)   Draft letter to Senator Teresa Paiva-Weed
Councilor Murphy: Draft is a little too harsh.
      Councilor Dolce: We need to communicate our concerns to Senator
Paiva-Weed.  The time is now to let her know what our concerns are. 
Councilor Wright: This draft letter is to give Senator Paiva-Weed support
and should be a strong one.
      Following brief discussion, motion by Councilor Wright, seconded by
Councilor Pease to approved the draft letter and to let Senator Paiva-Weed
know that the Council  applauds her efforts to help reduce tolls to local
users, however wishes to reiterate specific concerns, and to authorize the
Council President to sign the letter on the behalf of the Council.
      So unanimously voted.

2)   Tax Resolution
     a) Copies of current and proposed laws
Following discussion, motion by Councilor Wright, seconded by Councilor
Pease to ask the Solicitor to put this information in the form of a bill,
to be discussed at the next meeting on April 
13.  So unanimously voted.

3)   Ambulance property survey
Administrator: The Building/Zoning Official has recommended getting a
survey done.  Council President Amerigian: No action required.

Rabies education and the rabid fox incident:
Jack Civic, DVM, Jamestown Animal Clinic: I'm here to answer any questions
that you may have regarding rabies.
      I spoke to the RI Department of Health and they almost fell over
when I said that we did not have a 24-hour leash law.
      The word is out at the schools and we have moved the rabies clinic
originally scheduled for April 25 to April 4.  Lt. Balzer has gone to the
farms to talk to owners about vaccination of the farm animals.
      People need to be educated and made aware that  rabies is here, it
is just not evident.
       Motion by Councilor Wright, seconded by Councilor Murphy for Dr.
Civic to prepare 8 to 10 questions and answers for review by the Council
on March 30.  So unanimously voted.

Motion by Councilor Murphy, seconded by Councilor Pease to schedule a
special meeting of the Town Council on March 30 following a special
meeting of the Town Council sitting as Board of Water and Sewer
Commissioners to discuss questions and answers to be submitted by Dr.
Civic.  So unanimously voted.

4)   Proposed skate park
a)   Copy of Zoning Board of Review meeting minutes (04/09/90) re: new
school
Motion by Councilor Murphy, seconded by Council President Amerigian to
refer this to the Building/Zoning Official for review and to report back
to the Council on April 13.  So unanimously voted.

b)   Parking (per Council President Amerigian)
Council President Amerigian: This would be in relation to the skate park.
      There already appears to be a parking problem at the field.
      Everyone  parks along Lawn Avenue, Arnold Avenue and Westwind
Drive..  No one parks in the Melrose Avenue parking lot.  Could prohibit
parking on one side of Arnold Avenue, which might help defuse some of the
residents.
       Councilor Murphy: We may already have an ordinance on no parking in
that area.
       Motion by Councilor Wright, seconded by Councilor Murphy to have
the Administrator look into the matter.
      Council President Amerigian:  Try to get people to park in the
Melrose Avenue parking lot and get input from neighbors and from the
School Committee.  So unanimously voted.

5)   Proposed zoning ordinance amendments re: open space
Council consensus: Conservation Commission Chair to come back with more
information for the Council on April 13.

6)   Elderly exemption
Motion by Councilor Murphy, seconded by Councilor Wright to table this
matter until April 13 and for the Administrator to  provide present
exemption and any additional information necessary for Council.
      So unanimously voted.

7)   Legislative review:  Council consensus: To table this matter until
April 13.

8)   Water ordinance (adopted 03/05/98) re: status report
Mr. Goslee: Had some problems this weekend and this morning.  The lunch
hour this week was not as good as last week.
      Council President Amerigian: What do you recommend?  Mr. Goslee:  I
would not add any additional use restrictions at this point.
      Council consensus: Mr. Goslee to report back at the Special Water
and Sewer meeting on March 30.

9)   Water and sewer rates
Following discussion, motion by Councilor Wright, seconded by Councilor
Murphy to table this matter until the Special Water and Sewer meeting on
March 30.  So unanimously voted.

10)  Proposed land bank (continued from 03/12/98 work session)
(Recusing and standing in the audience: Ellicott Wright)
     a) Letter from Dennis H. Webster
Council President Amerigian:  Some of the suggestions that were made at
the workshop and
the suggestions that Mr. Webster has made in his letter are good ones. 
The items that have been raised relate number one to the question of land
purchases and how they are affected by this proposed legislation to the
percentages that should be in the legislation in terms of the amount of
the tax, percentage wise.
      There have been questions raised relating to sections 17 and 25 that
detail how the elector would voted on this.
      There have been some comments made about the nature of the
exemptions.
      I think all of these should be discussed.  Mr. Powell: If we take
this thing to the legislature would you understand this?  I think this
needs to be explained.  Councilor Murphy:  I do think this is complicated.
 Maybe we should just go straight forward like the other legislatures.
      I think that $100,000 was an equitable amount for the exemption.
       I do not want to give an exemption for vacant land.
      I would like to be straight forward by saying the exemption for
improved property is $100,000 for the first $100,000.
      Solicitor: It is $75,000.
      Should not apply to vacant property, we are trying to preserve
vacant property.
      The first $100,000 would be exempt.
      Solicitor: That is far different than what I tried to design.
      Councilor Murphy: When I thought of this, there are not too many
houses selling below $100,000 in Jamestown.
      The   impact on the moderate to low houses would be significantly
reduced.  Council President Amerigian: Thirty percent of the houses were
under $125,000 or less.
      Solicitor: I designed that exemption  because I tried to determine
from the Council what the policy objective was.
     What you wanted to accomplish.
      I assumed what you wanted to accomplish was to provide the moderate
income family with the ability to buy a house in Jamestown based on that
families income.
      Which would essentially be exempt from this tax.
      This was to promote the moderate family living in Jamestown.
      It would not reduce the tax paid by the person who could afford the
million dollar house.
      The person with the million dollar house would pay the tax on the
full million dollars.
      With that in mind, I said how do we do this?   Lets see if we can
create a formula that generates from a moderated income as published by
HUD with prevailing interest rates generate a price that a moderate income
family could afford to pay for house.
     (Clerk changed audiotape at this point during discussion) Solicitor: 
In my opinion, that's what all legislation does.
      It creates an in group and an out group.
      Councilor Murphy:  I like the idea of saying it's more equitable,
more people are paying a share.
      I don't want to propose to the legislature, that only the rich
people are paying this tax in Jamestown.
      Council President Amerigian: You may have to recommend the higher
percentage in order to accomplish the same goals revenue wise.
      Councilor Murphy:  The burden is then shifted to the people buying
the $150,000 to $200,000 houses.
      There is a large percentage  that will take an unfair hit.
      They are going to have to pay every dollar of their house.
      Most of the houses in Jamestown are $200,000 or below.
      Everyone pays a little bit, if more people pay.
      Council President Amerigian:  What about inflation?  Councilor
Murphy: Could be adjusted in five or ten years.
      Now, we just need to try and get the initial bill through.
      Councilor Dolce: In the initial bill there was an exemption for
first home buyer.
      The Solicitor has taken it one step further and said this will apply
to the first home buyer, but it will be more of a dynamic equation whereby
on a yearly basis we will be able to determine what the first home buyer
should typically buy.
      If you can buy a house for over $149,000, then maybe you should be
contributing a percentage of that to the land bank.
      If you can't, then you certainly qualify under HUD minimum
guidelines and you would be exempt.
      I think this can be explained.  I think that would be viewed more
favorably with the state than a $75,000 exemption. 

E. W. Sterling Graham, Jr.: Will that drive real estate prices down? 
Council President Amerigian: I imagine that it will do something funny
around the threshold.
      Council President Amerigian: What do you think Councilor Pease? 
Councilor Pease: I like the attempt to make it fair, but if it is too
complicated it is in trouble.
      I like the low rate and no exemption.
      First time home buyers, what does that mean?  Where?  Whose name? 
How are you going to research that?  Five percent is two high.
      How is Little Compton and Block Island's rate set?   Solicitor: 
Financial town meeting.
      Councilor Pease: They can still do theirs that way, we can not.
      Mr. Powell: Little Compton is still at two percent with $75,000
exemption.
      It is recommended by Mr. Eddy, Secretary of the trust (from Little
Compton) that we stay away from the exemption.
      Solicitor:  That is a very different exemption.
      Mr. Powell: I recommend locking it in at two percent and keep it
simple.
      Ms. Hubbard: I spoke to Mr. Eddy a few days ago and he recommend not
locking in the two percent and to stay away from the exemption.
      Council President Amerigian: I agree with Councilor Pease that five
percent is too high.
      Council President Amerigian to Mr. Hubbard: Have you read Mr.
Webster's letter?  Is his suggestion the viable one?  Solicitor and Mr.
Hubbard: No.
      Solicitor: It is thoughtful, but there are certain legal
requirements which it does not satisfy.
      Mr. Hubbard: You are down to the point where I think you have to
separate accepting the land bank legislation and then have a separate
issue to determine the amount, if that is possible.
      Or you have to pick one, two or three amounts and go for it.
      Otherwise, it dramatically increases the chance that this will not
go through.
      Councilor Pease: What would flat one percent raise, with no
exemption?  Mr. Powell: In 1997 $300,000, in 1996 about $350,000 and in
1995 about $200,000 with no exemption.
      That includes all sales.
      Council President Amerigian: I think that we have eliminated the
first time buyer issue, we are down to deciding the percentage and how it
is going to be determined.  Solicitor: I think that you can avoid problems
through education.
      I also would eliminate four and five percent.
      Councilor Dolce: I would be happy with one or two percent and have
it pass.
      Council President Amerigian: I would like to find a way to vary it.
      Solicitor: Mr. Pease would you like to eliminated this choice, and
simply send the legislation with a straight two percent as done in 1986? 
Councilor Pease: I would tempted.  Council President Amerigian: It still
gives the voters the right to vote on it every year and to reject it.
      Councilor Murphy: I agree.
      Solicitor: So we are at two percent now?  Council President
Amerigian: Yes, I am not happy with that, but I do not see any way around
it.  Councilor Pease: What about an exemption?  Solicitor:  This will go
before the voters by the end of the year at a financial town meeting.
      We should design the legislation in such a way that it can end at
some date.
      That the voters can end it.
      Would it be acceptable if we wrote this in such a way that the
voters could terminate it at an election, if put on the ballot by the
Council.
      Councilor Pease: Town wide election?  Solicitor: What if the 
population of Jamestown is telling you that they do not want this tax
anymore?  I am suggesting that it could be terminated at a special or
general election?  Councilor Pease: I agree.
      Councilor Murphy: Tax yes, not the land bank.
      Solicitor: I'm suggesting that legislation provide that once it has
been approved by the voters at two percent, it will remain two percent
until the Council puts it on the ballot for another election and the
voters terminate the rate at that election.
      At this point, the tax has ended.  Councilor Murphy: What about the
exemption?  Councilor Dolce: By having the exemption, will that be an
advantage in helping get the bill passed?  Council consensus: Yes,  drop
the exemption to $75,000.

10:45 PM: Councilor Dolce left at this point.
      
Motion by Council President Amerigian, seconded by Councilor Murphy to ask
the Solicitor to revise legislation as discussed (two percent with $75,000
exemption), for discussion at the next meeting on April 13.
      So voted by 3 in favor, none opposed,  Councilor Dolce absent and
Councilor Wright abstaining.
