Unanimously approved City's and Redevelopment Agency's FY 2010 operating budget, Capital Improvement Program FY 2010-19 budget, Master Fee Schedule update, Gann Appropriations limit and Community Promotions Program. Councillor Zermeno, a Cinco de Mayo board member, recused himself when the Council voted on allocations for Cinco de Mayo funding.
John Kyle is unhappy with the Alameda County Congestion Management Agency's solutions for truck parking in the County. He is upset trucks regularly park overnight at Southland Mall, are still present at 7.30 a.m, and detract from a development that is already in financial difficulty. He remarked that Union City's Mayor Mark Green is CMA Chairman and observed that trucks do not park at Union Landing. Nobody associates the problem of truck parking with Union City, unlike Hayward.
Audrey Lepell, President of Citizens for Alternative Transportation Solutions (CATS) opposes the introduction of one-way traffic on A St, between Foothill and Mission Blvds, as part of a mini-loop intended as part of the Route 238 Corridor Improvement. Mayor Sweeny reminded her that he and Councillors May and Henson had also opposed the proposal. Given the Council's split vote at a previous public hearing, the majority decision held. Another hearing will be scheduled following Councillor Halliday's call to reconsider the proposal.
