Fremont City Council

June 21, 2011

Consent:
Approve contract for Cedar Street improvements - curbs, gutters and sidewalks - with JJR Construction, Inc. in the amount of $149,454. Funds for this project are available from Measure B Bike and Pedestrian Funds. Although projected costs of this project exceeds Measure B funds available, an additional $40,000 for staff time will be drawn from the Capital Improvement Program (2011/12-2015-16) approved by City Council.

Public Comment:
Niles Essanay Silent Film Museum invited the public to attend the Broncho Billy Film Festival June 24-26. Also a contest sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation requires citizen participation in online voting. Details are available at the museum website: www.nilesfilmmuseum.org.


Revise purchasing ordinance allowing City Manager more flexibility to award and execute contracts within the existing $100,000 threshold on a per contract basis rather than per contractor per year. In some instances, bid competition exemptions apply; for instance where a single source is available. The proposal was modified to retain a 12-month limitation on contracts involving real property.


City Council & Redevelopment Agency
Adopt a resolution to secure funding for and agreement with Irvington Station of San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) service. The redevelopment agency will secure $120 million through tax allocation bonds. Funds will flow directly to BART. Funding is contingent on a comprehensive agreement with BART which will be required to perform land acquisition, design and construction work. In addition to the station, BART will construct street connections between the proposed parking lot and both High Street and Roberts Avenue.
