Discussion

Tagged Passions:recognition and council

National Payroll Week was founded by the American Payroll Association in 1996. National Payroll Week celebrates the unique partnership among America s workers, their organizations, the payroll professionals who pay them, and critical government programs such as income taxation, social security, Medicare, fair labor standards and child support. Together, through payroll withholding, they contribute and collect 70 of U.S. Treasury revenue, approximately 2.4 trillion per year.

This special week celebrates many things important to each of us who work. During the week of Labor Day, the City of Rockville celebrates National Payroll Week, which recognizes the valuable contributions America s workers and payroll professionals make everyday in our community. From the economic, cultural, and social achievements of workers, to the significance of an honest day s work for an honest day s pay, National Payroll Week is a celebration on many levels. National Payroll Week is a national campaign used as a platform to spread awareness of the payroll withholding system, to host community service projects, and to educate others on how paychecks are calculated and how to get the most out of their pay. The City of Rockville is excited to host its third annual Payroll Week for 2019. Mayor and Council History Mayor and Council read, adopted and presented the 2018 Payroll Week Proclamation on August 1, 2018. This is the first time that this item is being presented for the 2019 Payroll Week. 5.B Packet Pg. 7 Attachments Attachment 5.B.a: 2019 National Payroll Week Proclamation (PDF) 5.B Packet Pg. 8 5.B.a Packet Pg. 9 A tta ch m

Discussion

Tagged Passions:council, boards and commissions, Conservation, and environment

In 2003, the Mayor and Council established a series of Environmental Excellence Awards to recognize extraordinary accomplishments made by residents, organizations and businesses that work to enhance Rockville's environment and sustainability efforts. Additionally, these awards are intended to encourage other community members to follow the lead of the award recipients. Anyone may, at any time, nominate an individual, organization, or business for an Environmental Excellence Award. In 2008, the Mayor and Council designated the Environment Commission to review such nominations and select deserving award winners.

The Environment Commission recommends Mr. Mark Charles receive the Carl Henn Outstanding Individual Environmental Stewardship Award in recognition of his thirteen years of exemplary service as Chief of Environmental Management for the City of Rockville. In January 2007, Mark Charles was hired as the first Chief of the Environmental Management Division. At that time, the Division consisted of only one other staff member. Today, the Environmental Management Division consists of 40 FTEs with a budget of over 6 million dollars, and is responsible for stormwater, sustainability, and the recycling and refuse programs.

During Mark s tenure, the City made significant strides in environmental protection. He led the effort in the Mayor and Council s adoption of the City s first comprehensive Sustainability Strategy to guide the City toward being a greener and more sustainable community. He oversaw the creation of the City s first water quality protection ordinance as well as comprehensive revisions to the stormwater ordinance, the addition of green building provisions to the City s building codes, amendments to green the zoning and procurement codes, and the creation of the first Water Resources Element of the City s Comprehensive Master Plan. Under

6.A Packet Pg. 10 Mark s direction, the City implemented a rigorous stormwater management program to reduce water pollution and improve watershed health that included three watershed management plans, a stormwater management inspection and maintenance program, and the creation of environmental compliance and enforcement processes. Mark has represented the City s environmental interests before the Maryland General Assembly and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments (COG), including its Chesapeake Bay Policy Committee. Mark also served as the City liaison to the Environment Commission when it was successfully nominated to receive the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency s Presidential Environmental Volunteer Award. He also has been a featured speaker at Earth Day and Arbor Day observances, school environmental education events, Peerless Rockville sessions, and the Rockville Business Academy.

Subject Update on Rockville Goes Purple
Tagged Passions:administrator and manager

Recommendation Staff recommends that the Mayor and Council receive an update on the Rockville Goes Purple initiative.

Discussion The Rockville Goes Purple initiative was established by the Mayor and Council on September 24, 2018. The goal of the initiative is to increase awareness of the opioid crisis, and provide education and resources to prevent future opioid addiction and overdoses in the Rockville community. A planning committee of internal and external experts and resources was established to support the initiative. The group met approximately monthly since the beginning of the calendar year to plan the activities described in this update. The planning committee members include: Mayor Bridget Donnell Newton Councilmember Beryl Feinberg Mitra Ahadpour, U.S. Food and Drug Administration Carlos Aparicio, Rockville Community Services Victor Brito, Rockville City Police Tim Chesnutt, Recreation Parks Raymond Crowel, Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services Kathy Dantzler, Rockville 11 Fred Evans, Rockville resident Erin Fashion, Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services Paige Janzen, Rockville Community Facilities Samar Khleif, Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services Jenny Kimball, City Manager s Office David E.

Fiscal Year 2019 Activities Activities since September 2018 have engaged a wide range of Rockville residents, elected officials, service providers, subject matter experts and others interested in this important topic. The Mayor and Council kicked off the initiative with a special guest speaker and will conclude the first year of Rockville Goes Purple with a celebration of National Recovery Month in September. The following list summarizes the activities to date. Prevention Starts with All: The Chris Herren Story The City hosted former NBA player Chris Herren at the F.

Meghan Westwood, executive director of the Avery Road Treatment Center, explained treatment services in the region and the challenges associated with fighting the opioid epidemic in Montgomery County.

Following the panel discussion, attendees received free comprehensive training on administering Narcan. Narcan is a rescue drug used to reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. With funding from Montgomery County s Opioid Intervention Team, each participant received a Narcan kit at the end of the training, as well as DisposeRX (for safe disposal of unused medication) and other educational materials. Knowing the Risks of Opioids Senior Education Forum - The Rockville Senior Center hosted the June 6, 2019 forum through a partnership with the Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services Aging and Disability Services and Opioid Intervention Team, and the Montgomery County Collaboration Council. Participants learned from pharmacy resident Victoria Zhu about the effects of pain medication and pain management alternatives. Corporal Ken Matney spoke about the safe disposal of medications. Opioid Spoon Project Honor Tour The Tour made a stop in Rockville Town Square on June 7, 2018. Dominic Esposito created an 800-pound opioid spoon sculpture to memorialize loved ones lost to the epidemic. Attendees had the opportunity to hear Mr. Esposito s story and sign the spoon in honor and memory of loved ones. The tour stop was co-hosted by Rockville s Mayor and Council and the Montgomery County Council of PTAs Substance Use Prevention Committee. Rockville City Police Department Narcan Training Through a partnership with Montgomery County Health and Human Services, all of Rockville s sworn police officers have been trained to administer Narcan and have been issued Narcan kits for use on patrol and responding to calls for service.

Information Sharing and Outreach

No additional detail provided

Online - An online presence for Rockville Goes Purple is at: https://www.rockvillemd.gov/2275/Rockville-Goes-Purple. It provides background information about the opioid crises. a Rockville 11 promotional video, and information about where to get assistance. Staff will also continually use the site to advertise upcoming events and activities.

Events Rockville s special events are a great opportunity to spread the word about Rockville Goes Purple. Information and giveaways were shared at the City booth at Hometown Holidays and at National Night Out parties. To support awareness of the Rockville Goes Purple campaign, staff distributes wrist bands, pins, car magnets, and purple glow sticks at events. The City also provided our campaign materials to Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services for distribution at their events. 6.B Packet Pg. 15 Latino Youth Program The County s Department of Health and Human Services conducts a week-long information series on substance abuse annually for Rockville s Latino Youth Program in the Community Services Division.

Host the Knight Foundation s Race for Recovery on Sunday, September 29 in Rockville Town Center.

Rockville will also co-sponsor the International Overdose Awareness Day event on Thursday, August 29 at 7:00 pm in the Executive Office Building Cafeteria, Terrace Level. The event will include speakers, remembrance of those who lost the battle to addiction and resource tables.

The planning committee will plan additional FY20 activities over the next several months, with a focus on activities that target young people. Research indicates that the majority of people suffering from addiction began misusing a drug at 18 years of age or younger. The Committee would like to focus future activities on opioid education and prevention among high school and middle school students. As a next step, committee members will meet with high school and middle school principals to learn how Rockville Goes Purple can partner with school communities to enhance current Montgomery County Public Schools efforts. The committee will also increase participation of youth in planning and volunteerism for Rockville Goes Purple. Efforts to engage additional community partners will also continue into the fall, particularly service providers, schools, PTAs, community recreation centers and other organizations that interact with the young people in our community. Mayor and Council History In June 2018, the Mayor and Council joined state and local jurisdictions in a lawsuit against drug manufacturers and distributors for their role in the opioid crisis. On September 24, 2018, Emily Keller, City of Hagerstown Councilmember, presented to the Mayor and Council on the Washington County Goes Purple initiative. Following a discussion, the Mayor and Council directed staff to establish a Rockville Goes Purple initiative to increase education and awareness of the opioid crisis. The Mayor and Council also supported using 12,000 from the city manager s contingency funds to implement two events in early 2019 to kick off the Rockville Goes Purple initiative. 6.B

Tagged Passions:construction, council, streets, and Pedestrian

Project Description: The Southlawn Lane Sidewalk Project is a CIP project and includes the installation of approximately 1,700 linear feet of five-foot-wide pervious and conventional concrete sidewalk on the south side of Southlawn Lane between Lofstrand Lane and Gude Drive. Other major items of work within the project include the installation of curb and gutter, as well as storm drain inlets and drainage pipe.

Background: The south side of Southlawn Lane between Lofstrand Lane and Gude Drive has a sidewalk gap that if constructed, will connect to a sidewalk built several years ago, west of this current location. Currently, there is no sidewalk on either side of Southlawn Lane in this area so pedestrians are forced to walk in the road, or on the grass roadside. This project will provide pedestrians with a safe area to walk.

Subject Adoption of Resolution to Adopt the 2018 Montgomery County Hazard Mitigation Plan, as Required by the Robert T.

Recommendation Adoption of Resolution to Adopt the 2018 Montgomery County Hazard Mitigation Plan

Discussion Staff recommends that the Mayor Council adopt the Resolution (Attachment A) so that the City remains eligible for state and federal disaster relief funding. The resolution adopts the 2018 Montgomery County Hazard Mitigation Plan, as required by the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Acts and Title 44 of the Codes of Federal Regulations, Part 201, to maintain Rockville s eligibility for disaster relief funding.

Tagged Passions:funding, regulation, council, emergency, and disaster management

To reduce the effects of disasters, the law encourages, among other initiatives, a planning process based on cooperation among state and local authorities, community partners and the public at large. The law recognizes local and state pre-disaster planning and promotes resiliency as a major mitigation strategy. Under the regulations implementing this law, states and local governments must have an approved and adopted hazard mitigation plan in order to maintain eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is responsible for reviewing and approving state and local plans. In developing the plan, Montgomery County assembled a core planning team consisting of County agencies, municipalities, utility companies, and community volunteer organizations. Lt. Seilhamer represented the City of Rockville to provide input. The purpose of the Hazard Mitigation Plan is to identify policies, capabilities, activities and tools to help make Montgomery County and the City of Rockville more resilient in the face of future disasters. The plan is reviewed and updated every five years.

In April 2019, FEMA approved Montgomery County s updated Hazard Mitigation Plan. In order to maintain eligibility for pre- and post-disaster mitigation grant funding, the City of Rockville must adopt the plan.

Mayor Council Meeting Date: August 22, 2019 Agenda Item Type: Discussion and Instructions

Tagged Passions:instruction

Department: Recreation Parks Responsible Staff: Colleen McQuitty

Subject Hometown Holidays 2020 Recommendation Staff recommends that Mayor and Council confirm the decision to eliminate the Sunday activities and entertainment from the 2020 Hometown Holidays. Discussion Hometown Holidays was established 31 years ago to give community members an entertainment option in Rockville instead of heading to the beaches over Memorial Day weekend. The weekend activities lead into the annual Memorial Day ceremony and parade to recognize the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service to our country. The event is held in Rockville Town Center to highlight the area and attract visitors to the businesses located downtown. Hometown Holidays has become the City s premiere event and has attracted over one million people to the downtown area, who have listened to more than 400 bands, and have had the opportunity to interact with nearly 1,000 vendors throughout the years. In October 22, 2018, the Mayor and Council discussed the future of Hometown Holidays, particularly the diminishing space in the downtown area and concerns expressed by residents about the noise generated by the event and the hours of the event, both in terms of set up and operation. The Mayor and Council provided input on minor changes to the layout of the 2019 Hometown Holidays and support for 2019 operating hours of 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. The Mayor and Council also directed staff to inquire with Montgomery County Public Schools and Montgomery College about options for relocating the 2020 festival to those sites on Mannakee Street.

On December 3, 2018, staff returned to the Mayor and Council for continued discussion about Hometown Holidays in 2020 and beyond. Based on input from stakeholders impacted by or participating in Hometown Holidays, staff proposed to hold Hometown Holidays 2020 as a one- day festival in Town Center on Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Staff also proposed

hosting a larger concert on Sunday evening at Montgomery College, followed by the Memorial Day ceremony and parade on Monday. After discussion of the options and the fiscal impacts, the Mayor and Council directed staff to plan a one-day festival in Rockville Town Center, followed by the Memorial Day ceremony and parade on Monday. The FY20 adopted budget reflects that approach.

Tagged Passions:council, budget, university, and festival

Planning for the 2020 festival is underway, and staff is at the point of signing multi-year contracts for Hometown Holidays services. Given that the contracts impact multiple years of the festival, staff is coming to the Mayor and Council to confirm the decision of late last year to reduce the festival to one day. Returning to a two-day event would require an additional 48,000 in FY20. For your information, at the conclusion of the 2019 event, staff received positive feedback on the length of event, hours of operation, and revised layout from the community, event partners, sponsors, and attendees.

Mayor and Council History Mayor and Council discussed the layout and hours of the 2019 festival, and the scope of future Hometown Holidays festivals on October 22, 2018.
Tagged Passions:planning, council, contract, services, events, holiday, festival, and history

On December 3, 2018, staff provided the Mayor and Council with an update and recommendation on Hometown Holidays in 2020 and beyond.

Options Considered Option 1: Maintain Hometown Holidays 2020 at its current funding level which includes a one- day festival on Saturday from 12pm-8pm with the Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony on Monday. Option 2: Increase the FY20 Hometown Holidays budget by 48,000. The festival would then be held on Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 8pm with the Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony on Monday. Boards and Commissions Review
Tagged Passions:funding, council, boards and commissions, budget, holiday, and festival

The Recreation and Parks Advisory Board previously stated their support and preference for a two-day event followed by the traditional Memorial Day Ceremony and Parade.

Fiscal Impact If the Mayor and Council approve a two-day event for Hometown Holidays 2020, staff will fund the 48,000 from the General Fund contingency account for this year and will add the additional funding to the base budget going forward.
