City Council meeting, Monday, May 9, 2011

Some items of interest, you may find others. 

City Council Agenda, general pages 1-3, detailed summary comments follow. 

Consent Calendar,  Item 5.  RV Park Vertical Beach Access Project.  Originally CA Coastal Conservancy (Conservancy) granted the City $350,000 for the repair of the horizontal and vertical beach access trail at the San Francisco Recreational Vehicle Park (formerly called Pacifica Recreational Vehicle Park). $94,680 additional monies were needed to complete the project, paid by the City, and are included in the prior City budget. The Conservancy is reimbursing these monies; therefore, net cost to the City is $515 only, paid from the General Capital Improvement Fund. See computer screen pages 8-10.   Happy Trails!  "Happy Trails to You", a stress reduction song.
Public Hearing, Item 9.  The sewer rate increase is 3.4043%, (them minimum will increase from $493.54 per year to $510.34). See computer screen pages 17- 25 (text discussion pages 1-3 within those pages).  Problems with the collection system are discussed, but I don't see the sewer spill fines and lawsuit.

Consideration, Item 10.  Outsourcing  tree maintenance, street light maintenance, and street sweeping programs from the Department of Public Works.  The City is asking to prepare a request for proposal (RFP) for competitive bids.  This is expected to save $262,539 (General Fund), maybe. Computer screen page 26.

Only in Pacifca does the street sweeper come by on Monday and Garbage day is Tuesday.

I wonder who is the brainiac who changed this.

The street sweeper always came by a couple hours after the Tuesday garbage pick ups

All five present and accounted for. Tod Schlesinger lighting Vreeland's comb-over and beard on fire and making deJarnatt's head bobble.
