Pittsburg City Council Meeting

Monday, February 5, 2018, 7pm

City Call Council Chambers, 3rd Floor

Agenda can be found here.

Agenda items of note:

#4. Vacating Right of Way on Los Medanos Street. City wants to dump responsibility for maintaining their property on Los Medanos Street, south of 10th Street. Combine this item with a previous one from a past meeting whereby the City voted to dump responsibility of Cumberland Street south of 10th Street and you start to wonder what the City is up to with the properties bordering these streets. Concern is raised because the City has not mentioned what their future plan is for this area is, and why they are making slow but stealthy changes to this area.

#6. Raising Water and Sewer Rates. Remember how the City implied that banning plastic bags would reduce costs of water treatment? Remember that the City Manager just got a huge raise? Remember all the services the city cut in the last budget? Remember that the City tore up Black Diamond Street to put in recycled water for the John Buckley Park yet did not take advantage of that work to replace aging infrastructure?

Remember when our City used to be run well?

#8. Tusany Meadows Development Agreement. Another Seeno item buried in the Consent Calendar which should force Councilman Evola to recuse himself as he is closely related to the Seeno family.
