09/20/2016 Council Preview – Peery Park Specific Plan

We start the evening with a study session on Sunnyvale logo and branding.  Staff and consultants have been working for some time to update Sunnyvale’s branding, consulting with residents, staff, and Council, and we’re going to get a first look at what they’ve come up with.

The general session starts with recognition of October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The consent calendar is pretty small since we just met last week.  We’ve got a contract related to developing recycled/re-used water systems, increasing contingency for development of the Peery Park Specific Plan, a contract related to Microsoft Office, and a second reading of an ordinance from last week.

Item 2 is adoption of the Peery Park Specific Plan.  This should go quickly…

Item 3 has us looking at implementing a new curbside collection program for food waste, as part of our Zero Waste efforts.

And item 4 has us looking at a salary increase for unrepresented classified employees.  Certain employees cannot be a part of a union, due to the nature of their work.  For instance, if an employee is part of our “meet and confer” process for bargaining units, that employee can’t be a member of a bargaining unit.  So they don’t get to negotiate for their increases.  Instead, we tend to tie them to the increases provided to the SEA bargaining unit.
