There’s a City Council Meeting tomorrow night (March 15) @ 7 pm. The Agenda includes a number of key items for consideration.
There are no presentations scheduled, but we do expect some public comment related to current efforts surrounding High Speed Rail and Caltrain.
The Council should then move through the Consent Agenda fairly quickly as most of the items are routine in nature or have been seen/reviewed by the City Council at a prior meeting. These items include:
Staff anticipates that there may be a few brief comments or Q&A on the Consent Agenda, but the Consent Agenda may be approved in one motion of the Council.
After the Consent Agenda the Council will move to Public Hearings. Quite the line-up this evening.
After Public Hearings, the Council moves on to Regular Business. Only 3 items on their docket for the night.
The first up is review of a draft letter to the Fire District regarding their recent Citygate Report. The Town does not provide and is not responsible for the delivery of fire services; but, an inquiry arose while the Town was putting together its Local Municipal Services webpage as to what the Atherton-specific revenues and costs were for the services. This has sparked a lot of dialogue back and forth between the District and the Town. In December, the Board and Council held a joint meeting. At that meeting, there was a request by the Town to be involved in an upcoming update to the District’s Citygate Study - directly related to Fire Station #3 in Atherton. The District completed and presented the Report at their February 21 Board Meeting without opportunity for Town input. The letter is in response to that occurrence and again asks the District for more inclusion in the discussion.
Next is review of the draft ballot argument for the June 6, 2017 Special Election. The draft argument was written by a City Council Ad Hoc Subcommittee and must be reviewed and approved by the City Council.
The last item on the Agenda is the Civic Center Project Report. This Report is specifically related to Phasing and Staging. Now in the Construction Documents phase, it is anticipated that this project will be moving to bid in October/November 2017.
