DISCUSSION/ QUESTIONS
..
OOWL HKM
City Manager Shrives reminded Commission that something needs to be started with this project.
Mayor Knutson thanked Shari and Kevin for all of their work and for the valuable presentation.
During the time when the project was first presented to present, there has been a meeting with
the EPA(Environmental Protection Agency) and a clearer expectation about what is needed.
Mayor Knutson explained that with the information that was given this evening, there needs to
be time to absorb it all. City Manager Shrives commented that there needs to be some decision
made that gives a definite direction. The presentation will be emailed to the Commission for
their' review and posted to the City website. Mayor Knutson commented that there will be a
decision given during the November 17th Commission meeting.
THE APPOINTMENT OF MS. LISA KINYON, CITIZEN AT LARGE TO THE POLSON
REDEVELOPMENT AGENCY·1 YEAR TERM, TO FULFILL A VACANCY DUE TO A
VOLUNTEER RESIGNATION-This agenda item was presented by PRA President Ken Avison. The
PRA is pleased to have the opportunity to put forth Lisa Kinyon as a new member of the PRA. Mr.
Avison has had the opportunity to serve on several boards with Lisa. Lisa has a business downtown
within the TIF District. Mayor Knutson clarified there were two applications for the position. The PRA
recommendation is Lisa Kinyon. Commissioner Southerland motion to approve the appointment of
Ms. Lisa Kinyon to the Polson Redevelopment Agency. Commission Morrison second.
Commission Discussion : none Public Comment: none. VOTE: Unanimous Motion carried
APPROVE CONTRACT WITH McCRUMB CONSTRUCTION FOR NEW LIGHTS ON
WALKING PATH IN SACAJAWEA PARK.City Manager Mark Shrives presented this agenda item.
The City recently completed the City Dock and Pier Path project. There was funding available and there
was a discussion about possibly putting lights along the path in Sacajawea Park and fin ishing up in
Riverside. There is a section of three (3) lights that were not part of the original project. The area is in
front of the Salish Building which was not part of the City's project that could be funded with the TIF
dollars. BenErika LLC is going to donate the funds to finish the three lights in front of their building.
They are donating $10,600.00 and then there are other Park donations that will be used to put the lights in
place. This is being done as a separate part of this project. It was not part of the TIF project. This
contract is for those three lights. The rest of the lights were done as a Change Order. This is an add on
contract that needs Commission approval. Commissioner Erickson asked if it would be the same lights.
City Manager Shrives answered it will be the same lights it'sjllst that these lights will be installed with
donated money. Commissioner Campbell commented that this is a good idea . Mayor Knutson asked for
a motion to approve. Commissioner Campbell motion to approve the contract with McCrumb

DISCUSS GOLF COURSE RESTAURANT LIQUOR LICENSE-City Manager Mark Shrives
commented that this item was going to be discussed during the recent workshop. Golf Director Roger
Wallace, Golf Board President Dave Cottington, and Golf Maintenance Superintendent Pat Nowlen have
been invited to address the Commission about this item. It is not as time sensitive as the Waste Water
project but it is a time sensitive matter. City Attorney Rich Gebhardt has also been asked to address this
matter and get the discussion started. City Manager Shrives commented that he would be asking for a
decision during the November 17'" City Commission meeting. Rich Gebhardt, "Madame Mayor I think
you are aware that we've had a couple of lawsuits over the past, over the management of the operation of
the All Beverage license. The way that we're attempting to manage it, and we've attempted in the past to
manage it, was by not having an employee manager of the All Beverage license. Our Golf Pro was on
contract for the management of it. Previously it was a I ittle bit Iike that but it was more toward the end
that the Department of Revenue, Liquor Control Division would not approve it. So, based upon my
conversations with the person from the Department of Revenue this spring, they were willing to go ahead
and let us have no actual employee of the City manage the operation through the summer. What we're
looking at is I got a question from this person that said, "why do you have an All Beverage liquor license
in the first place?" I couldn't answer that question because I wasn't around when it was purchased. I
think it has something to do with the fact that there would have been gambling associated with it at that
time. We can accomplish the same thing out at the golf course and allow ing for alcoholic beverages with
a Wine/Beer license. We don't have to have the same management criteria it doesn't have to be managed
like the All Beverage license. The cost is nominal to us because we have the right to have it as a
municipality running our own golf course. So, I guess, whether it is surplus property to you is your
question to be answered, and then what you do ·with it when you declare it surplus property and can we
continue to operate the golf course and provide alcohol beverages to the restaurant and to the premises
without having an All Beverage. My recommendation is that you move away from competition from
downtown with All Beverage licenses and you provide service to the people that patronize you golf
course and you see if you can recoup some of your investment by selling." City Manager Shrives, "I will
ask Roger and Dave and Pat, to speak." Roger Wallace, "I feel like we've been here before maybe. I'm
just going to give a little history and what's been discussed with the Golf Board. What my
recommendation would be. First of all, last time I was here and we talked about this there was some
confusion both here with where the funds came from. Let's be clear, everything that we're talking about
tonight is Golf Fund. It has no, no effect at all on General Fund. As a matter of fact, the Golf Fund sends
about $30,000.00 a year to the General Fund. So, lets me clear, whatever we talk about, whatever
decision you make as a Golf Fund issue and not a General Fund issue. Back in 2004 or 2005 we paid
$55,000.00 for that license. At the time there was Gaming. At that time it was a pretty good buy for us to
be honest. We did well. Today, with no Gaming and through the research I've done, I was asked by the
previous City Manager to make a proposal to purchase it. I had access to all the liquor license sells in
Montana over the last five years. So looking at those and talking with bankers up and down the valley,
some of whose banks owned licenses at the time, those licenses were wOlth, with no gaming, about
$10,000.00 in counties our size. For $12,000.00 it was a little too painful for Council to accept that and I
had a hunch that was going to be the case. So, $10-12,000.00 is what that license was wOlth with no
gaming, last year. With food and beverage being a part of the new hotel coming in. Food and beverage
rumored franchise food and beverage, that license is going to be integral to somebodies business model.
In an open bid process who knows, my hunch would be somewhere in between the $12 that we know it
was worth last year and the $55,000.00 that we paid for it. That would be my guess. Cun·entlyabout 1/3
of our total alcohol sales are hard alcohol. We do roughly $75,000.00 in alcohol sales. The two years that
the I have operated that license and I know what the deposits have been and from last year to this year it
has been either $23,500.00 or $25,000.00 in the hard alcohol sales. So, almost exactly it's 32.6% has
been the hard alcohol sales. Clearly there will be an effect on gross sales. I doubt it will be as large as
'DRAFT' City Commission Meeting November 3, 2014 Minutes
Page 6
that, $25,000.00. It might be $10,000.00 issue but there probably will be some loss in gross sales. My
experience is when we operated under Beer/Wine license prior, 2000 and before, that when you tell
somebody we don't have a gin and tonic, they want to know what kind of beer you have. So, some will
decide not to but most will decide to have a beer or a glass of wine. During the life of that license, I don't
have the numbers in front of me, but it wou ld be safe to say it has cost the Golf Fund in excess of
$100,000.00 whether it has been actual losses for the restaurant or moving from vendor to vendor to
vendor. Anybody with food and beverage experience, going from vendor to vendor, one vendor leaves,
the next vendor comes in and says the guy before was an idiot. I need this, this, this, and th is. We're
buying equ ipment and the lessor. At any rate, it has cost us more money than we can afford long term to
continue to lose to accomplish our capital needs as well. The All Beverage license is very restrictive and
some of the homework that we didn't do when we purchased it, you cannot sublet an All Beverage
license. You can a Beer/wine. So, in our experience trying to get contracts, essentially through the
Depmtment of Revenue, they will let us structure a contract that gave the leassee about 50% of those
liquor sales that's essentially that person is flushing 25% of their gross sales down the toilet but they're
still expected to incur 100% of the operational cost. So, Dan you would know what that might look like
in your business. It's not a rosy picture. So, the benefit, if you did decide to sell is you can sublet it. It
gets you out of the payroll liability. It gets you out of the liquor liability. If we choose to go down the
road with an All Beverage license, the City of Polson is always, always, always in the food and beverage
business. No choice. You are in it. Also, it is kind of, I've been in retail all my life. One of the
important rules in retail is that, and I think I've covered this before, identify your buying mistakes.
Everybody make buying mistakes. We made a buying mistake. Identify your buying mistakes, get out
from under them, and turn that capital into something that makes you money instead of continuing to lose
you money. We are continuing to lose money with this license at a much less extent today than we did
three, four, five, six, seven years ago but none the less it's upside down annually. So my
recommendation, personally, is to sell it and know that when you do sell it you cannot tie a location to
sales contract. You cannot require that it stays at the golf course. You can't, like in my proposal I said,
"Look I will buy it for $12,000.00 if I'm done in ten years, I'll sell it back to you for $ 12,000.00." That
can't be part of a contract. I guess for me it is a little bit of short term pain possibly versus the long term
gain. Even if there is some short term pain, there's a multitude of things we could do with $20-30,000.00
that that liquor license would generate. I'm sure Pat would be able to speak a little bit better to that than I
would be so. So at any rate, clearly you are not going to make a decision tonight. Time is a little bit of
essence in that we have a business model to consider for next year. If you decide to sell it, we have to
liquidate inventory, and possibly go out and see if somebody wants to adveltise for a leasee or something
like that and we get going probably April. It is a time consuming process to go through that. The sooner
the better the decision is made for us." Commissioner Campbell, "How do you put something like that up
for sale?" Roger Wallace, "We advertise for bid. We purchased it in a bid process. I'm assuming we
would put it out for bid again." City Manager Shrives, "We'd put it out for bid potentially set a minimum
acceptable price and then we do sealed bids. I haven't thought threw all that process but as I was thinking
the best way to do it would be bids. We'd set a minimum price that we'd be willing to accept and then
take sealed bids kind of like we do contracts." Commissioner Campbell, "How long did you get to run
that with gambling?" Roger Wallace, "We ran that business under gambling for eight years, nine seasons,
no six years." Commiss ioner Campbell, "Probably got their money back out of it too." Roger Wallace,
We didn't. People in generality, people that gamble typically don't want to be seen gambling. So, that
upstairs room was light, it was well lite. People would stick their 25 cents or 75 cents change they got
from their cheeseburger in the machine. Every now and then somebody would tip us over for a couple of
grand and just ruin the summer. We were on a profit sharing deal with the City and it was 50/50. I think
the most we ever made from a gaming standpoint was $250-300.00. It was a non-issue from a revenue
standpoint." City Manager Shrives, 'Last time we talked, it kind of came back that it was unclear where
the Golf Board stood, so I've asked the Golf Board to weigh in." David Cottington, ''The Golf Board
has discussed this probably, I don't know, half a dozen times at various meetings with Roger. We have
never really made a formal recommendation. I think I can confidently say that our recommendation
*DRAFT* City Commission Meeting November 3, 2014 Minutes
Page 7
would be to sell it. We're going to hear some grumbling, or somebody is going to hear it, probably
Roger. The few people that want a hard drink but like he said they will just buy a beer and that will be
the end of it for the first couple of months of the golf season. We've talked about everything that Roger
has explained to us in the same way. We had a discussion around this time last year. We said we should
sell it. We had a discussion about it being an asset and I asked Roger this morning about what the
percentage of hard liquor sales was and it was more than I thought it would be, but if half of that comes
back in beer sales then it's probably no big deal. We are aware of all of the points that Roger made and
that would be our recommendation ." Commissioner Campbell, "Is it possible that we sell this, take that
money to put toward the new cart shed?" City Manager Shrives, "That would be something that I would
let Roger and Pat figure out. I suppose it could be used toward a lot of things. Before Pat says anything,
it's kind of interesting, I talked to Cameron today. I stopped by the Pro Shop and was talking to him for a
little bit. I said so you gotten any big push back on the fact that there is not refunds for the golf passes
this next year? He said initially there was a couple of people but then when they talked about the fact that
there had been $8-10,000.00 in refunds last year and that $8-10,000.00 and I think there's a
misunderstanding as to where that money goes. Well , that money goes to potentially to buy another
mower. It goes to maintenance, so when Cameron explained that he said that everybody went, "Oh.
Okay. I understand now." So, we made that change, there hasn't been a whole lot of push back. So Ijust
thought that was interesting. The liquor license maybe is in that same vein, I don't know." Pat Nowlen,
"I just need you to know that I do support the sale of the liquor license. I see it as a piece of equipment
that we bought, we used for a while, and then it broke down when the gaming left. If we took the
opportunity to get rid of it, to get out from underneath it, we can operate the restaurant the way that we
need to, we have the ability to get a portion of that money back and spend it on probably maintenance.
Get out from maintaining this piece of equipment that's been broken for a long time." City Manager
Shrives, "We're here for discussion, questions." Rich Gebhardt, "One thing. What you would do is make
a motion to declare it surplus property and instruct the staff to go ahead and sell it. They would place the
lowest acceptable bid and then you can determine how the sale will be conducted. You don't necessarily
have to do it sealed. You could do it open if you thought you could get more money that way. That
would be the Manager's determination." Mayor Knutson, "We are not the only municipal golf course out
there. Are we the only ones that have this issue or do we know of any others and how they're working?
Are they just flying under the radar? How are they managing this whole thing?" Roger Wallace,
''There's really only, in western Montana, there's really only two other truly municipally owned and
operated golf courses, Bill Roberts in Helena and I can't remember the name of the golf course in Great
Falls. Both of them operate under Municipal BeerlWine license . I believe we're the only municipality in
Montana to have all All Beverage license." Rick LaPiana, "I'm going to give you a little bit of history
about the liquor license. When I was on the Golf Board that was one of the things that Roger brought up,
and I was on the Golf Board 2006 and 2007, was to get rid of the liquor license because of the problems
of operating that bar with outside help and to keep the inventory safe. If the liquor room is still in the
same spot downstairs, it's an accident waiting to happen . Why it hasn't happened I can't tell you . We
wanted to in 2006 and 2007 to sell it. Roger was right, the City Council looked at $50,000.00 and said,
"Oh my God we can't take the hit". Well, we've taken the hit. You gotta get rid of it. I've told Mark
already I know of two people that are ready to bid on it, that want to use it locally." Mayor Knutson,
"Well we certainly have a unified front from the Golf Course. I've heard, I guess, informally from people
that there's going to be some flare ups of course if this does go through. My inclination, I wanted to hear
from all of you to get your perspectives as the leaders out there. I wanted to have the pulse on our golfers,
our customers. I think that we want to make sure that we are providing a good service but we also have to
make sure that we are doing things legally and within the right perimeters as well. So, I appreciate all of
the perspectives that were shared tonight. There is definitely talk and it may be a short term pain. I
would fully expect that." Roger Wallace, "When you consider what effect on the corporate groups or
outside groups that come to us, we really are just replacing revenue from that day. Make no mistake that
it's a good day for us, but a Saturday, end of August or July I" to the first week of August, we're going to
make the same money just being open on regular business day that Saturday as we are hosting that event.
*DRAFT* City Commission Meeting November 3, 2014 Minutes
Page 8
There is some P.R . to be gained, absolutely. But from a pure business money in, money out standpoint
bottom line for that day it really doesn't have an effect." Elsa Duford, "I have go lfed a long time ago so
I am not going to arg ue the golf thing, but I wanted to bring to your attention is this article in the Flathead
Beacon. It' about Whitefish and it sounds li ke they would be de lighted to get a liquor license for the price
you mentioned tonight. It's qu ite a long article and it talks about how much it costs them to buy a liquor
license on the open market. These figures are j ust astounding to me. It said in July a beer/w ine license
sold in Kalispell for $500,000.00 according to the State Department of Reven ue statistics. The cheapest
Cabaret license sold in recent years went for $100,000.00 All Beverage license went for $585,000.00 in
Apri l which could be considered a bargain compared to the 2007 price of $950,000.00. I mean this is j ust
up the road. I would like you to read this article. It's kind of long but it's about a woman who wanted to
try and open a business in Kalispel l." Mayor Knutson, "I saw that article. It's also on line so you could
google it." Elsa Duford, "It's the October 151h issue of the Flathead Beacon. That's all I wanted was to
bring this a.ticie to your attention. Thank you."

CITY COMMISSION AGENDA ITEM SUMMARY
Agenda Item Number: 7
Meeting Date: November 17, 2014
Staff Contact: Cindy Dooley, Finance Officer
AGENDA ITEM SUMMARY: Approval of Resolution No. 2014-#_ to appropriate money
and provide for the payment of debts and expenses for the City of Polson in fiscal year 20132014.
BACKGROUND:
The final budget, even though it is displayed on a line item basis, is
approved at the fund level. Per MCA 7-6-4006, the City is allowed to amend the final approved
budget for any funds where the expenditures exceed the approved appropriations. This usually
occurs when the City receives unanticipated revenues and then spends those revenues or
unexpected expenditures are incun'ed that require the use of fund balance (prior year net
revenues). A budget amendment requires a public hearing to be held during the regular City
Commission business meeting. At the public hearing any taxpayer or resident may be heard for
or against any part of the proposed budget amendments.
ANALYSIS:
For fiscal year 2013-2014 there are a total of 10 funds that require a budget
amendment. Exhibit A to the Resolution details the appropriation amount that is needed and the
source of the appropriation and the amount available to fund the appropriation.
FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS: The total increase in appropriations is $19,747.00. There
is a total of $58,610.00 in increased revenues to offset appropriations in funds 2219, 2221, 2390,
2703, 2810 and 2876. Working capital will decrease in funds 2402, 2500 and 5390 as fund
balance is the source of the appropriation.

CITY COMMISSION AGENDA ITEM SUMMARY

Agenda Item Number:
Meeting Date: November 17,2014
Staff Contact: Cindy Dooley, Finance Officer
AGENDA ITEM SUMMARY: Approval of Pledged Securities for purchase of $1,000,000
Certificate of Deposit at First Citizens Bank, Polson Montana.
BACKGROUND:
Montana law requires city treasurers to deposit all public money not
required for immediate use into banks, building and loan associations, savings and loan
associations or credit unions. Demand deposits (checking accounts) must be deposited in banks
only. Deposits can be in the form of savings, time deposits, repurchase agreements and various
obligations of the United States Treasury and other U.S. agencies. The City's investment policy
further restricts savings, time deposits and repurchase agreements to deposits in local fmancial
institutions. Interest paid on investments shall be at rates that are no less than the rate of interest
that is paid on money from private sources on the same terms.
The City's investment policy requires that the uninsured portion of deposits be collateralized in
accordance with Montana State Law. MCA 7-6-207 states that if the financial institution has a
net worth to total assets ratio of 6% or more, then 50% of the uninsured portion must have
pledged securities (collateral). If the net worth to total assets ratio is less than 6% then 100% of
the uninsured portion must have pledged securities. The City's goveming body must approve
the pledged securities prior to the deposit being made to the financial institution.
ANALYSIS: The City placed an investment of public funds bid to local banks with a bid
closing date of November 13, 2014 at 4:00 pm. Three quotes were received as detailed on the
attached Quotes for Settlement November 18, 2014. Based on the quotes and an analysis of
comparable rates, the City will place $1,000,000 with First Citizens Bank on November 18, 2014
in a Certificate of Deposit. The attached list of pledged securities is a continuation of pledged
securities previously used as collateral for the First Citizens Bank CD #301494 which matured
on October 22, 2014. These securities were confirmed on November 12, 2014 by John Stobie,
CFO of First Citizens Bank.
FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS: This investment at an annual percentage yield (APY) of
.8% will earn approximately $8,025 with the interest being added to the account on a quarterly
basis.
STAFF RECOMMENDATION: Approve pledged securities for investment of public funds.
SUGGESTED MOTION: I move to approve the list of pledged securities presented for the
investment of public funds in a certificate of deposit at First Citizens Bank in the amount of
$1,000,000 on November 18, 2014.

RE: Final Plat Extension Request Dotson 2-lot subdivision
On July 30, 2014, the City of Polson received a $100 check from the Robin and Danielle
Dotson, presumably as an extension of their two-lot preliminary plat approval. As there
is no formal application for a preliminary plat extension request, and no other supporting
documents were received, the receipt of the check acknowledges its intent.
The preliminary plat of Lot 4, Skyline Homesites was unanimously approved in
September of 2009 by the Polson City Commission. The proposal was to create two lots,
each with an existing home on it. Both of the lots were to connect to Polson water and
sewer. There are 25 conditions to meet before a final plat can be submitted. There was
no parkland requirement, nor was there any infrastmcture requirements other than
connecting the both of the homes to public water and sewer.
Condition #3 of the preliminary plat approval reads: "This approval is valid for the
subdivision Final plat to be completed within two years from the date of Preliminary
approval. The Preliminary approval may be extended, by CC vote, for one additional
year if the applicant requests an extension of time prior to the expiration date."
As the preliminary plat was approved in September 2009, it would then expire, according
to Condition #3 on September 2011. It is the staffs understanding that an extension
request was submitted and granted, allowing the preliminary plat to have a new
expiration date of September 21, 2014. This new extension request, if approved, would
allow the preliminary plat to expire on September 21,2015.
State law was amended in 2011 to allow for multiple extensions of preliminary plats to be
considered whereby in previous years, only one extension request per preliminary plat
was allowed. MeA 76-3 -610 Effect of approval of application and preliminary plat:
(1) Upon approving or conditionally approving an application and preliminary plat, the
governing body shall provide the subdivider with a dated and signed statement of
approval. This approval must be in fo rce for not more than 3 calendar years or less than
1 calendar year. At the end of this period, the governing body may, at the request of the
subdivider, extend its approval for a mutually agree-upon period of time. Any mutually
agreed-upon extension must be in writing and dated and signed by the members of the
governing body and the subdivider or subdivider's agent. The governing body may issue
more than one extension. (2)Except as provided in 76-3-507, after the application and
preliminary plat are approved, the governing body and its subdivisions may not impose
any additional conditions as a prerequisite to final plat approval if the approval is
obtained within the original or extended approval period as provided in subsection (1).
As receipt of the check by the City of Polson was taken as an intent for a subdivision
extension agreement, and the contract planning staff can find no required time period
between when a request must be made and expiration occurs, (the check was received on
July 30th and the plat did not expire until September 21 st ), therefore an extension request
is placed before the City Commission for review. The lapse in time between when the
check was received and the requested City Council action in November can be attributed
to some confusion as to the applicant's intent when presenting the check to the City at the
end of July, and some additional final plat documents that have been trickling in. It is the
planning staffs intent to work with the applicant within the confines of State law and the
PDC to allow him to continue his work towards a final plat application. Revoking the
approval deadline would require the Dotson's start over with an entirely new preliminary
plat application and process.
In 1984, the Montana Supreme Court ruled in Oldenburg v. County of Flathead that a
Commission or governing body may extend a preliminary plat after its expiration
deadline has passed within a reasonable time. The City of Polson's Commissioners
should be advised that the expiration date for the Dotson's plat is September 21 st , 2014
and that their consideration of the extension request on November 17th , 2014 is 57 days
beyond that date. As a caveat to that, it was due to scheduling and other considerations
beyond the applicant's control that has created the gap in time frames.
In conversations with City staff and the applicant, there has been significant movement
towards completion of the final plat, although it has not been submitted in its entirety at
the time this report was written, it is anticipated that an application for final plat will be
received in the near future.
Compliance with State and local regulations:
This extension request is found to be in compliance with the State statutes (MCA 76-3507) and the PDC.
Staff Recommendation:
This particular preliminary plat was the division of land with existing structures at the
intersection of existing public roads. As the overall impacts of the subdivision to the
general community were marginal, and there is no new construction of public facilities
required, granting an extension of an additional year to the Preliminary Plat approval
would be recommended.

1.
Organize the ordinance material into appropriate subdivisions;

4.
5.
Provide appropriate catchlines, headings and titles for sections and other
subdivisions of the Code printed in the supplement, and make changes in

inserted in the Code and, where necessary to accommodate new
material, change existing section or other subdivision numbers;
Change the words "this ordinance" or words of the same meaning to "this
chapter," "this article," "this division," etc., as the case may be, or to
"sections
to
" (inserting section numbers to
indicate the sections of the Code which embody the substantive sections
of the ordinance incorporated into the Code); and

meaning of ordinance sections inserted into the Code; but, in no case,
shall the codifier make any change in the meaning or effect of ordinance
material included in the supplement or already embodied in the Code.
Sec. 1.01.200. Constitutionality.
If any section, subsection, sentence, clause or phrase of this Code is for any reason held to
be invalid or unconstitutional, such decision shall not affect the validity of the remaining
portions of this Code. The city commission declares that it would have passed this Code,
and each section, subsection, sentence, clause and phrase thereof, irrespective of the fact
that anyone or more sections, subsections, sentences, clauses or phrases had been
declared invalid or unconstitutional, and if for any reason this Code should be declared

conduct of the meetings.
B.
A majority of the commission shall not conduct synchronized email discussions
involving a matter over which the commission has supervision, control,
jurisdiction, or advisory power. Synchronized email discussions are email
exchanges among three or more commissioners within minutes of each other

discussions. Such discussions are characterized as an active exchange of
information rather than the passive receipt of information. An example of
synchronized email discussion would be three commissioners Sitting at their
computers and instantly exchanging emails conceming city business, whereas a
8
passive receipt of information is where a comm issioner receives an email and
responds in the normal course of time similar to responding by letter received in
the mail. The commission shall not view emails or other electronic
communication mechanisms conceming any matter on the agenda during a city
comm ission meeting unless the submission is part of a specifically approved
and adopted electronic public testimony program. Electronic communication
mechanisms include text messaging or any other emerging technology that
violates the spirit of open meeting laws. This does not preclude viewing emails
or electronic communication mechanisms that were received prior to the
commission meeting. Emails received by commissioners concern ing an agenda
item shall be forwarded to the city clerk and retained in accordance with the
city's retention policy.

revised by the city clerk to correct spelling, numbering and other technical
defects. The audio or video recording may not be amended.
B.
Executive session minutes. The city manager shall prepare minutes for all
executive meetings. The commission shall approve the minutes of an executive

commission shall be: "BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY COMMISSION OF THE
CITY POLSON."
B.
All ordinances shall be in effect from, and after, 30 days from the date of their
passage by the commission, except as otherwise provided by law. All resolutions
are immediately effective unless a delayed effective date is specified in the
resolution.
c.
The commission may, by an affirmative vote of five-sevenths of its members,
pass emergency measures to take effect at the time indicated therein. An
emergency measure is an ordinance or resolution for the immediate
preservation of the public peace, property, health, or safety, or providing for the
usual daily operation of a municipal department, in which the emergency is set
forth and defined in a preamble thereto.
D.
Every ordinance or resolution passed by the commission shall be signed by
the mayor and filed by the city clerk.
E.

advertisements from those applications on file as of the date of appointment.
Subcommittees of existing boards, comm issions or committees may be
appointed by the city comm ission without the necessity of public solicitation.
Members shall be appointed by a majority of the commission for all
appointments made by the city commission. In the case of statutorily authorized
mayoral appointments, the mayor shall seek the concurrence of at least two
other commissioners.
C.
The authority to vote despite a conflict included in section 2.02.100.E shall not
apply to any appointed board, commission, agency, or committee.
D.
All quasi-judicial boards shall have governing rules of procedure to be approved
by the commission, and said rules shall be in substantial conformance with law
and this article.
