City Council Reg. Mtg. Minutes <br /> Wednesday, June 19, 2019 <br /> Page 2 of 4 <br /> Jim Fee with his wife owns Rob's Quick Stop located at the corner of 15th & Callow, expressed his <br /> concern about the drive-through smoke shop on the land held in trust, but located in the middle of <br /> a residential neighborhood, and believes the City is ignoring their own ordinances to allow it. <br /> Randy Moore owns several stores in Bremerton, expressed his concerns that he will not be able to <br /> pay taxes and compete with a business on the land held in trust that is not required to pay taxes; <br /> so he asked for help and questioned if he will need to leave Bremerton just to remain in business. <br /> Khem Butcher lives on Callow Avenue near the business on the land in trust stating that it was <br /> supposed to remain a residence, and not be a commercial business. <br /> President Younger asked that it be clarified on whether or not the Bremerton City Council had any <br /> say in this project... City Attorney Roger Lubovich confirmed that the City of Bremerton does not <br /> have any jurisdiction over this property, it is in the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Indian Affairs... <br /> Erinn Howell stated that she learned that the Bureau of Indian Affairs must send an official letter <br /> to the City when a project like this is going in, and then the City must be allowed 30-days to provide <br /> a response. She was especially concerned that it does not feel like the City is fighting on behalf of <br /> the residents, and there is no communication about how long the construction will last. <br /> Mr. Lubovich responded that a member of his staff contacted the Bureau of Indian Affairs but <br /> learned that this type of project did not require them to provide a Notice to the City... <br /> Doug Johnson remembered that a few years ago, the residences received advanced notice about <br /> a proposed casino on this same property, and were successful in stopping it from being built. He <br /> believes another neighborhood meeting is required because he does not think this current project <br /> was well thought out, and he worries for the residences, and the potential increase in traffic. <br /> Michel Cryder was very concerned about the increase in noise and lights with this type of <br /> business allowed in a residential neighborhood. <br /> Anna Mockler mentioned that even though she lives a few blocks away, she attended the past <br /> community meeting to hear the concerns of the neighbors, as well as the provided explanations by <br /> the City, and hopes that the Mayor and City Council can get together to mitigate the issues; and <br /> also supports an additional community meeting. <br /> CONSENT AGENDA <br /> 5A— Claims & Check Register: Check Numbers 384723 through 384940, and EFT-V19899 <br /> through EFT-V19964 in the amount of$2,575,167.39; Regular Payroll for the pay period <br /> ending May 31, 2019 in the amount of $881,072.14; Regular Payroll (Voids, Payouts, & <br /> Corrections) for the pay period ending May 31, 2019 in the amount of$32,145.25; and <br /> Retro Pay for the pay period January 1, 2019 to May 15, 2019 in in the amount of <br /> $2,763.11 <br /> 5B — Minutes of Meeting — June 5, 2019 <br /> 5C — Minutes of Study Session —June 12, 2019 <br /> 5D — Sole Source Purchase of Automated Playback Equipment from CASTUS for Bremerton <br /> Kitsap Access Television (BKAT) <br /> 5E — Contract with Pape & Sons Construction, Inc. for the Marine Drive Stormwater LID Retrofit <br /> 5F — Purchase of Replacement Festoon Lighting from CED for use on 4th Street between Pacific <br /> and Park Avenues <br /> 5G — Amendment No. 1 to the Consulting Agreement with BMcConsulting, LLC for Lobbying <br /> Services <br />
