GLENDALE CITY COUNCIL MEETING PREVIEW

BUILDING RETROFIT

The City Council is expected Tuesday to authorize a $574,900 contract with EMCOR Service for a retrofit of the former police station at 140 N. Isabel St. The building, currently known as the community services building, requires a new mechanical system to make it a viable facility.

WHAT IT MEANS

The council is likely to approve the contract as the project is a part of Glendale Water & Power's new and expanded public benefit programs, which the council approved last week. The funds will come out of federal grants from the Department of Energy and the utility's public benefit charge.

?

FLEET INSPECTIONS

The council is expected to authorize a $136,926 contract with Transit Resource Center Inc. for public transit vehicle inspections for a five-year period. The city currently owns 34 Beeline buses and six Dial-A-Ride vehicles, which would be inspected quarterly, per the agreement.

WHAT IT MEANS

The council will likely approve the contract as the inspections help the city comply with federal regulations.

?

STREET MAINTENANCE

The council is expected to authorize a $1.5-million contract with American Asphalt for street maintenance projects and a $1.9-million contract for a Colorado Street pavement rehabilitation project.

WHAT IT MEANS

The council will likely approve the contracts which will support infrastructure maintenance and repair as a part of the city's Capital Improvement Program.

?

EMPLOYEE BENEFITS

The council is expected to approve amendments to the Supplemental Benefits Ordinance for various city employee unions to allow for increased health benefits costs in the amount of $451,203.

WHAT IT MEANS

The council will likely approve the amendments because they are included in previously negotiated employee contracts.

?

HISTORIC SIGNS, HOMES

The council will review a report regarding proposed historic district signs, which will mark entry points into the city's designated historic districts.

The council will also hold public hearings about several properties, which the Historic Preservation Commission has recommended to be added to the Glendale Register of Historic Resources.

WHAT IT MEANS

Implementation of the program will increase public awareness about Glendale's various historic districts, including Royal Boulevard, Cottage Grove and Ard Eevin Highlands.
