Negotiations Delay Emergency Declaration
Posted by Comments (61)on Friday, September 16, 2011
Tuesday’s City Council meeting will feature a status report on the city’s general fund, but no action will be taken in regards to declaring a “fiscal and service level emergency.” Consideration of that item has been deferred until after Oct. 31.
An update on labor negotiations with public employee unions will occur Tuesday. The city sent a letter this week to the police and firefighters unions expressing an interest in meeting about sick leave payouts. Those discussions could begin as soon as Monday, Sept. 26
The council is also expected Tuesday to hold a public hearing, conduct a special election and adopt resolutions that will approve the formation of Community Facilities District (CFD) No. 14, “which will provide funding for the ongoing operation and maintenance of the enhanced improvements associated with the Hitachi Campus and Santa Teresa Transit Village project.”
Due to delays in projects slated to finish last fiscal year, the council will also be rebudgeting items. Additional money dedicated to these projects will cost more than $927,000. Projects include park maintenance, fixing a Koi Fish pond filtration system and increasing funding for the Seven Trees Branch library.
