Sentinel staff report–
The Citrus Heights City Council will meet Thursday night in a closed-door session at 6:30 p.m. followed by a regular council meeting where fireworks, city finances, organics recycling and other items are scheduled to be heard on the agenda.
Here’s a brief summary of what’s on the council’s 101-page agenda packet for June 10:
Investment Policy. The council will consider adopting revisions to the city’s investment policy, with revisions including various percentage-based limits on types of investments and routine updates of titles, and a new requirement for monthly reporting to be made by staff to the council.
Appropriation Limit. The City Council will consider a staff recommendation to approve an appropriations limit of $61 million for fiscal year 2021-22. An appropriations limit is required by law to be set each year, with the city barred from exceeding that limit.
Storm Drains. The council will consider approving a five-year agreement with Coastline Water Resources, Inc., to continue providing the city’s storm drain maintenance services from July 2021 to 2026, for a total cost of about $3.5 million, including a 15% contingency. A staff report said three bids were received, but comparison costs of the other bids were not included in the report.
Street Repaving. The council will consider a staff recommendation to contract with Goodfellow Bros. CA, LLC, for repaving sections of 14 streets in Citrus Heights, as part of the city’s 2021 Residential Street Resurfacing Project. Goodfellow Bros bid was the lowest of nine bids received, coming in at just under $1.3 million, while the highest bid was submitted for more than $1.8 million.
Housing project. The council will consider approving a request to extend the “due diligence” period for Woodside Homes to assess the Sylvan Corners property it is in the process of buying from the city. The home builder has already sought one prior extension, and now seeks to extend the period through Aug. 13, citing “areas of concern” being identified on the 11-acre property. The council’s closed-door session will also relate to the project, although the agenda says only that the topic will be negotiation with Woodside Homes regarding “price and terms of payment.”
Abandoned Vehicles. The council will hear a recommendation from the police chief to consider support of an upcoming regional “Sacramento Abandoned Vehicle Service Authority” (SAVSA) ballot measure, which would extend a program set to expire in April 2022. The current program adds a $1 fee to all Sacramento County residents when they register their vehicles, to help combat abandoned vehicles on private and public property. The city currently receives $50-60,000 per year from the program and would be asked to contribute around $62,500 to help place the measure on the ballot, according to a staff report. The measure would require two-thirds support from voters to pass.
American Rescue Plan. The council is slated to hear an update from the city’s Administrative Services Department on the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which will provide the city with close to $16 million in additional funding this year.
Fireworks Enforcement. The council will hear a report from the Police Department regarding a fireworks enforcement and operations plan, in advance of anticipated problems related to Independence Day celebrations.
The council will also hear a trio of presentations at the beginning of the meeting, including employee service recognition, an update from Republic Services, and a presentation on mandatory organics recycling. Council members will also take routine annual action action to record delinquent solid waste charges on the tax roll.
