10/14/2014 Council Preview – Landbank and Minimum Wage

This is going to be a long night.

We start the evening with a closed session regarding ongoing labor negotiations with the Sunnyvale Managers Association, followed by a second closed session involving litigation between our RDA successor agency and the County Office of Education.

The general session starts with three separate special orders.  The first recognizes Rotary’s World Polio Day.  The second recognizes National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  And the third is our annual Fire Safety Poster Contest awards.

The consent calendar is moderate.  We’ve got a CalPERS-related resolution, a contract for redoing some tennis and basketball courts, a contract for office supplies, and adoption of updates to our fire ordinance.

Item 2 on the agenda is reissuing solid waste revenue bonds to take advantage of lower bond rates.  The experts say this will save us some $614k.

Item 3 has us looking at adopting a minimum wage ordinance.  The proposed ordinance would match San Jose’s minimum wage.

Item 4 is perhaps the largest land use project we’ve seen this year, the Landbank campus at Central and Wolfe.

Item 5 proposes starting the process to sell some city-owned land at Mathilda and Iowa.

And item 6 has us taking positions on the various November ballot issues.

Short preview, long meeting.
