1.    Call to order and pledge of allegiance.
Chairman Nicole Shupp called the meeting to order and led in the pledge of allegiance.

2.    Discussion and possible decision to discuss and examine the Incorporation feasibility study presented by EPS. (Action)
Nicole Shupp asked that the presentation be made and suggested that questions be held until special meetings can be scheduled for public participation.

Vicky Parker motioned to have a presentation only tonight, accepting questions from the public to be answered at a later time.  Mrs. Parker noted that the Incorporation Advisory Board will be setting up a number of workshops to address the study.

Bill Dolan seconded the motion, advising that there are forms on the back table to be filled out.  Mr. Dolan asked that questions be submitted in writing to the advisory board and be brought back to the Town Board.

Mr. Darby and Mr. Maurizio both agreed.

Sheriff DeMeo commented that he could not believe the Board did not have time to read the report.

Bill Dolan stated that he had many questions on the study and would like to hear from the Advisory Board and the public regarding their questions before a meeting is held to decide anything.

Alan Parker, member of the Incorporation Advisory Board stated that he also has questions.

Vote passed 5 – 0.

Richard Berkson with Economic and Planning System (EPS) provided a power point summary of the study.  Items presented included, purpose, pros and cons, methodology, key assumptions, and summary of findings.  Mr. Berkson also presented information regarding revenues and expenditures for a city as well as costs and revenues for the County.  He also provided needed recommendations as part of the study which included having workshops, elections, clarifications of contracts, services and costs, legislative approach, flexibility to address revenue issues, etc.  Information was presented concerning Municipal Service Providers – existing and proposed.

Mr. Berkson noted that the report is available for public review.  Workshops are extremely important as well as discussions with the County to clarify service levels and cost assumptions.  The legislative approach, submitting a bill to the legislature, appears to have the greatest degree of flexibility as it can address issues during the transition period; specifically the transfer to the CTX revenues.

More detail was explained from page 15-16 of the report.  

Vicky Parker had one question concerning community development. Richard Berkson explained it was the planning and zoning functions being referred to.  Bill Dolan and Mike Darby said their questions will be emailed to Mr. Berkson.  

Sheriff DeMeo made some comments concerning his department.

The Town Board thanked Mr. Berkson for his presentation.

Mr. Kohbarger will be contacting the Board members of their schedules and setting up the special meeting workshops.

3.    Public Comment. Action may not be taken on matters considered during this period until specifically included on an agenda as an action item – NRS241.020 (2)(C)(3). (Non-Action)
