Hayward City Council Meeting
April 15, 2014
The meeting began with a presentation from Chindi Peavey, District Manager of the Alameda County Mosquito Abatement Program, ACMAD. Peavey said ACMAD is a service paid for by property taxes to conduct mosquito inventory in Alameda County and, subsequently, control. The agency concentrates on the larval stage and provides services to residents that include pickup of dead birds to determine if the cause of death was West Nile Virus.
City Attorney Michael Lawson gave staff recommendations regarding amendments to a mobile home ordinance, specifically the closure of mobile home parks and compensation for residents in that situation.
The council unanimously approved staff recommendations to fund local nonprofits from the Community Development Block Grant. Mayor Michael Sweeney was absent from the hearing because he works for Spectrum Community Services, an organization that applied for funding.
The counsel voted to adopt an ordinance that would prohibit camping and storage of personal belongings on city-owned property. The ordinance was approved 6-1 (Zermeno, Nay)
