Appointed Emily Duncan as alternate Union City representative to the Oakland International Airport Community Noise Management Forum.
Authorized payment of $10,407,508 to the County of Alameda and County of Alameda Library District. Pass-through payments to the County and the Library District would be made after the Redevelopment Agency reached a certain tax increment threshold as of June 30, 2009. The fiscal impact is the payment itself; the Agency anticipated this and funds are available to cover it.
Authorized City Manager to execute three contracts to implement the parking program in the Station District. The parking program was approved on Nov 10 when staff was authorized to prepare contracts with vendors. Ampco System Parking, Digital Payment Technologies and Weldon, Williams and Lick are three of the vendors chosen for the program. Capital and start-up costs will be funded by a $378,501 Redevelopment Agency grant to the city. Revenues from parking permits and pay stations will fund Parking Program operations.
City Manager Reports
Ordinance introduced for paid parking in the station district. Council approved the parking program on Nov 10, 2009. Modifications to the parking ordinance will allow Council to implement several provisions, including hourly, metered parking for Union Square, enforcement of violations in privately-owned lots, for parking in fire lanes and handicapped stalls and paid, quarterly permit parking. Enforcement costs will be funded through revenue. No impact to the general fund.
Amended General Fund operating budget for FY 2009-10, presented first quarterly report comparing General Fund budget to actuals and disbursement report for July 1 through September 30, 2009.
Approved appointments to the Human Relations, Parks and Recreation and Planning Commissions and to the Public Art Board and Senior Citizens Commission.
Received report describing measures taken to alleviate the conditions which led to the adoption of a temporary moratorium prohibiting the issuance and approval of entitlements for the Horner/Veasy area. The temporary moratorium ordinances were to give the city time to evaluate infrastructure needs and market conditions to determine appropriate uses for the area. There is an anticipated $20,000 to have reports prepared by a qualified third party to identify non conforming use.
