Rajesh Patel, applicant and developer, has submitted a revised plan for the 22,000 sf mixed- use commercial/retail building at 917 Virginia Avenue, Parcel Identification Number 14 012700040377. The building will be two stories with 13,000 sf of retail on the first floor and 9,000 sf of office space on the second floor. The site plan calls for a side drive-through window to accommodate a national food chain as part of the overall project. The property is accessed from Virginia Ave, Rainey Avenue, and Elkins Street with curb cuts only on Rainey Avenue and Elkins Avenue.
Though staff worked with Mr. Patel and his design team to re-orient the drive-through window to the rear and allow for stacking within the site and not onto Rainey, the national tenant has indicated that the queuing is not sufficient and has requested an alternate drive-through location (side).
The Planning Commission considered this request on December 11, 2018 and recommended the Mayor and Council grant the special use permit. Staff supported their recommendation.

Council has directed staff to retrieve quotes and financing rates for a new ambulance for the Fire Department. Council asked staff to research additional ambulance pricing opportunities. At present no offering has been delivered to staff that has a better price point than Custom Truck and Body Works. The City has obtained financing quotes from BB&T, SunTrust and Regions. Regions Bank delivered the lowest rate.
After additional research, the quote from Custom Truck and Body Works was still the lowest. Staff respectfully requests Council's approval to purchase the ambulance from Custom Truck and Body Works, with Regions Bank as the financing organization. If approved staff will return to Council with commensurate contracts and agreements for the purchase.
Council has directed staff to retrieve vehicle and financing quotes for a replacement van for the Recreation Department. Attached are quotes received for vehicles and the financing quotes from BB&T, SunTrust and Regions. Regions Bank delivered the lowest rate. Due to the nature of fluctuating inventory and choices between new and pre-owned vehicles, staff requests Council approval to use Regions Bank for van financing and to purchase either a new vehicle, not to exceed $52,240 or a pre-owned vehicle, no earlier than model year 2017 with no more than 15,000 miles and not to exceed $35,000.
Attached for consideration and action is the 2019 meeting schedule ordinance. A first reading was conducted on December 4, 2018.
