TOWN OF DAVIDSON
BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS
216 South Main Street
September 25, 2018
I. CALL TO ORDER

Joseph (Joe) Calandra

III. CHANGES TO AGENDA
IV. PUBLIC COMMENT - The Board shall provide at least one period for public comment per month at a regular meeting.
V. PUBLIC HEARING
(a) Public Hearing - Davidson Day TEFRA Matters, Town Attorney Cindy Reid
Summary: Davidson Day School is seeking funding for a new upper school campus located at 1803 Mecklenburg Highway in Iredell County. In order to finance the construction, the school’s plan is to issue as much as $9 million in educational revenue bonds. The bonds are private and the town has no part in transaction other than to approve the issuance in principle. Even though local government approval has nothing to do with the eventual transaction, the federal government requires local commissioners to approve the bonds because they are tax exempt.
(b) Public Hearing - North Harbor Club Conditional Planning Area, Planning Director Jason Burdette
Summary: This is a Board of Commissioners public hearing as required by Section 14.5.5. of the Davidson Planning Ordinance. The proposed plan appears to be consistent with (a) the Davidson Comprehensive Plan, as adopted by the Board of Commissioners and amended from time to time; and, (b) all other officially adopted plans and the Planning Ordinance.
VI. CONSENT - Consent items are non-controversial and routine items. Prior to the board's adoption of the meeting agenda the request of any member to have an item moved from the consent agenda to old business must be honored by the board. All items on the consent agenda must be voted on and adopted by a single motion.
(a) Consider Approval of Draft August Meeting Minutes from August 7, August 28
(b) Consider Approval of November 6th 1st Tuesday Meeting Location Change
Summary: On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the Town Hall Board Room will be utilized as a polling place for Election Day. Staff recommends hosting the 1st Tuesday Work Session at The Hurt Hub at 6:00 p.m.
VII. OLD BUSINESS - Items for old business have been previously presented and are for discussion and possible action.
(a) Salary Study Recommendation, Town Manager Jamie Justice and Consultant Susan Manning
Summary: To ensure the Town of Davidson is competitive with municipalities in the Charlotte Region, a pay study was included in the FY 2018-19 budget. The last pay study was conducted in 2015 and the town’s strategy, and a human resource best practice, is to complete a pay study every three years. Staying competitive allows the Town of Davidson to recruit and retain high performing employees that provide services to the citizens. A collaborative effort was made between the towns of Huntersville, Cornelius, and Davidson to collect and analyze data from 20 local communities.
(b) Discussion of Capital Projects, G.O Bonds, and Unassigned Fund Balance, Town Manager Jamie Justice
Summary: At the September 11, 2018, the board of commissioners and staff discussed the need to prioritize capital projects and the use of the 2017 general obligation bonds, and the related use of unassigned fund balance. This information will be used in the development of the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP). This discussion evolved from a discussion on the funding for a Grey Road curb, gutter, and sidewalks project.
VIII. SUMMARIZE MEETING ACTION ITEMS
IX. CLOSED SESSION
(a) Closed Session - § 143.318.11 (a) (5) for land acquisition of 335 Sloan Street.
