Fairly diverse evening.
We start the evening with a closed session regarding a lawsuit. Apparently someone’s suing us. This is followed by our City Attorney’s performance review. We then have a very short meeting of the redevelopment successor agency, to approve our last meeting’s minutes and to consider a budget appropriation for outside legal counsel for the Town Center development.
There’s a smallish consent calendar, consisting of a VTA committee appointment, an agreement involving Caltrain electrification, a contract modification involving Mathilda/Olive traffic control, a tree maintenance purchase order, and the rejection/withdrawal of a bid.
Item 2 involves approval of the Old Mountain View-Alviso Road bridge replacement project. This is a $10 million capital works project which is mostly funded by a grant, with Sunnyvale’s share coming from gas tax money.
Item 4 is our annual resolution placing unpaid administrative citations on the tax rolls. This is different from the earlier similar action from a couple of weeks ago – that one involved unpaid utility bills. These are for violations of the City Code, often neighborhood preservation issues.
Item 5 is our annual water quality report, which needs to be approved and filed with the state.
Item 6 has us revisiting the layout for the Heritage Museum. In resolving the issue with the Butcher House, Council apparently created a confusing situation regarding other improvements that were intended for the campus. So we’re going to try and provide clarity.
