12.         Adoption of a City Council Resolution to Accept Contract 2009-10, Leland Road and Railroad Avenue Drainage Improvement Project, Authorize Additional Construction Contingency and Direct the City Engineer to File a Notice of Completion

 

Contract 2009-10, Leland Road and Railroad Avenue Drainage Improvement Project (the “Project”) consisted of installation of a new storm drain line along Railroad Avenue to alleviate localized flooding on Railroad Avenue and prevent storm runoff from entering private property. This Resolution will accept the construction contract as complete, authorize an additional construction contingency and direct the City Engineer to file a Notice of Completion for the Project.

 

13.         Receive and File Staff’s Report on the Review of Development Impact Fees Received by the City of Pittsburg that are Subject to AB 1600 Reporting Requirements

 

AB 1600 (Government Code Sections 66000–66008) requires cities to justify and account for developer fees which they enact, increase or impose as a condition of new development for the purposes of financing “public facilities and improvements”.  AB 1600 also requires an annual review of the developer fees that have been collected and spent during the previous year.  This report fulfills these AB 1600 requirements.

 

14.         Adoption of a City Council Resolution to Amend Island Energy’s Fiscal Year 2015-2016 Capital Improvement Project Budget to Reallocate Funds Among Capital Projects

 

By Resolution 15-13086, the City Council approved the Capital Improvement Program (CIP) budget for fiscal years 20015/16 through 2019/20. As part of the City of Pittsburg’s Five Year Capital Improvement Program budget, Island Energy submitted budgets for three capital improvement projects on Mare Island. The priority of capital projects has changed, and staff recommends approval of a re-allocation of funds within the Fiscal Year 2015-2016 budget to meet the new priorities.

State law requires local jurisdictions to conduct a periodic review of active development agreements within the community.

Additionally, the resolution authorizes the City Manager to execute a Certificate of Compliance that is a recordable document stating that, as of the date of the resolution, the City Council finds the Developer has made good faith compliance towards complying with the DA.

 

17.         Adoption of a City Council Resolution to Approve the California Theatre Improvements Project, Allocate Funds and Authorize the City Manager to Enter into Agreements to Complete the Project

 

In 2009, the City and the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Pittsburg (the “Agency) entered into a Project Funding Agreement for construction of up to 27 identified projects to alleviate blighting conditions in the Project area. A majority of the projects were completed. Staff proposes allocation of up to $291,000 of unspent funds from completed projects to construct improvements to the second floor at the California Theatre.

 

18.         Adoption of a City Council Resolution Unanimously Declaring an Emergency in the City of Pittsburg Related to Future Funding of Police, Youth and Senior Services and Road Preservation

 

The City is facing an emergency starting in Fiscal Year 2017-18 with the partial expiration of the Measure P sales tax. Without an extension of the existing sales tax at its current rate (one-half percent/dollar 0.5%), the City will be unable to maintain its financial viability at current staffing and service levels for Police, Senior Center services, economic development/job creation and to provide funds needed to make repairs to local streets.  The City will face risks as to public health, safety and welfare.

 

19.         Adoption of an Ordinance Amending the Pittsburg Municipal Code Chapter 5.56, Taxicabs and Buses and Adoption of Resolution for Taxi Permit Fees

 

The City of Pittsburg will consider amending Pittsburg Municipal Code Chapter 5.56, Taxicabs and Buses, to comply with current statutes regarding taxicab regulation. Staff recommends adoption of a resolution updating its permit fees to recover the costs of the additional regulatory requirements.
