This will be a very, very long day.
We start the evening with a pretty long closed session regarding ongoing labor negotiations. [Note: edited to remove mention of a CalPERS presentation that is next week, not this week.]
Our regular meeting starts with a recognition of National Flag Day. We then get into a very large consent calendar. One interesting item is the transfer of an affordable housing project to a new owner. There’s also a contract for purchasing body-worn cameras and associated equipment and services for our public safety officers. There’s another NOVA-related contract, a filter contract for the WPCP, the annual Downtown Parking District Assessment, and our required November election resolution. There’s the allocation for a grant related to EMS data hardware. There is a necessary change to city salaries related to our raising the minimum wage. PG&E needs an easement related to the Wolfe Road purple pipe project. We’re giving the California Theatre Center a below-market rental rate. And we’ve got two second readings of ordinances related to Summit Denali.
Item 4 is a big one – our annual public hearing for the upcoming 2016/2017 budget. It’s the opportunity for members of the public to comment on the draft budget before we actually take action on it.
Item 6 is likely the big one – consideration of a special development permit for a new office complex on what was formerly Lockheed-Martin property in Moffett Park. Part of this was recently reported in the Sunnyvale Sun.
Item 7 is the resolution required for the Sunnyvale Public Lands Act ballot measure. Primarily, we have to make a decision about who files the Arguments Against.
And item 8 is an extension of the CalPERS 180-day waiting period. Our current IT Director, David Jensen, is retiring, but he’s scheduled to retire before we can find his replacement. So we’re looking at an extension for him to cover the gap.
