We start the evening with yet another closed session regarding labor negotiations. This is followed by a study session to discuss the finances related to the Sunnyvale Golf Course and its restaurant. This has been an ongoing issue.
The regular meeting starts with two special orders – one recognizing Arts and Humanity Month, the other recognizing National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The consent calendar is middlin’, including a contract for ammunition and other safety equipment, a contract to use some excess funds on road maintenance, a contract renewal for the Bill Wilson Center, and two second readings of ordinances approved at our last meeting. The last one is interesting – it’s a request to commit a local match for a joint application with VTA for an MTC grant involving a potential shuttle service in Peery Park. The intention isn’t necessarily for the city to pay the match, just to guarantee the match, with the intention to have Peery Park developers (or a future transportation management agency) to fund it. But it’s a bit tricky, since that hasn’t been established yet.
And related, item 6 has us looking to appropriate an additional $25k to expand the scope of the market analysis to include a couple of properties beyond the Civic Center itself.
Finally, item 7 has us appointing representatives to the VTA State Route 85 Corridor Policy Advisory Board.
