Keith Gurnee, Jesse Norris and Mayor Kenneth E. Schwartz ABSENT: None PRESENT: J.H. Fitzpatrick, City Clerk; R.D. Miller, Administrative Officer; A.J. Shaw, City Attorney; E.L. Rodgers, Chief of Police; Robert Strong, Director of Planning $ Building D.F. Romero, City Engineer ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. Council consideration of methods of implementing provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act for non - exempt, sworn police personnel effective January 1, 3975 if said act were still.judged to apply to City personnel. This item was continued from.the December 2, 1974.City.Council meeting due to a mix -up in the Police Officers Association not receiving notice of the hearing. R.D. Miller, Administrative Officer, again reviewed for the City Council the provisions.of the Fair Labor Standards.Act as it applied to non - exempt police and fire personnel under the existing regulations to be finalized between now and the first of the year by the Department of Labor. The amendment to be considered by the City Council this evening reads as follows: The declaration of the basic work period for non - exempt,.sworn police personnel.was a.seven day period-during which.normal work would con sist of five consecutive shifts on duty and two shifts off duty. The work day.would consist of elapsed period of eight hours with one -half hour off for.meal.period if possible. It was hereby stated that monthly salaries were approximate, and hourly rates for overtime would be calculated-as in the past by dividing the monthly salary by 173.3333. Overtime.in.excess.of 60.hours worked per week would be compensated at time and one - half. .The.Police Chief from.time to time would post specific work schedules-for individual personnel. . The Administrative Officer continued that under present interpretation of Federal.Fair Labor Standards Act, the meal period when police officers were subject to recall was considered work time. It was his recommendation.that the present 15 minute roll call training prior to officers beginning duty be eliminated-in order that no possible claims for overtime pay would be made for roll call training... ._ . The City Attorney, A.J. Shaw, submitted a memorandum to the City Council reviewing some of the items presented by the Administrative Officer. He stated that-he agreed with the recommendation of the Administrative Officer dealing with roll call training, but he recommended that the City Council adopt these recommendations as..a temporary.inter.im measure with the under- standing that the City intended to reconsider the matter .after the adoption of the final. regulations. by the.Federal Government and after the City had an opportunity to analyze the City's policing requirements during lunch hour periods. He felt this.was.a.time in the.City!s.life that innovative thinking must be brought to bear on work hours and.work.benefits for City.employees, particularly in the public safety field. City Council Minutes December 16, 1974 Page 2 Officer Ed Martin, President of the Police Officers' Association, stated that the Police-Officers' Association objected to the recommendations of the Administrative Officer as follows: 1. The Police Officers' Association objected to the Police Captain and Lieutenant being exempt from negotiation of working conditions, hours, etc. by the Police Officers' Association. 2. They objected to not being paid for the lunch hours and they would support the recommendation that the meal periods now be included in the eight hour work day. 3. On behalf of the Police Officers' Association, he objected to.the elimination of the existing pre - shift . roll call training. He.felt this training was necessary for the protection of the Police Officers and the citizens of San Luis Obispo. He felt that this period was necessary for proper operation of'the City Police Department and safety of the officers. He felt the City should pay the individual officers 15 minutes overtime each working day for this roll call training. He felt this would be economical to the City as it would provide better protection and better informed police officers. Police Chief Ervin Rodgers explained the problems involved in overlapping shifts for police officers in order to get the so- called roll call train- ing in without too much confusion. A.J. Shaw again stated that any action taken by the City Council this evening should be recognized as an interim decision for final determination when final FLSA rules were promulgated and also many of these matters could be again negotiated during the normal meet.and confer times between the City and the Police Officers' Association. Councilman Gurnee stated he was opposed to the elimination of the roll call training and was also opposed to the 60 hour work week before time and one -half pay would be paid for all overtime hours to police officers. He felt the City Council and City staff should recognize that the normal work week for police officers was 40 hours and any time worked over 40 hours should be paid for at time and one -half. Councilman Brown stated he agreed with the proposal for an eight -hour shift including meal periods if the roll call training were eliminated.. He hoped this could be taken care of by the Police Chief and staff working out on overlapping shifts by the various officers. On motion of Councilman Brown, seconded by Mayor Schwartz that the City Council accept the recommendations _ of the Administrative Officer for a seven day work period, consisting of five consecutive shifts on duty, two shifts off duty and the work day would consist of eight hours with one -half hour off for meal period if possible. If a roll call training period.were needed, the City police staff should initiate overlapping shifts in . order to accomplish the necessary informational periods. This.decision to be a temporary basis until final rules and regulations had been received. Motion carried on the following roll call vote.: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Norris and Mayor Schwarti NOES: Councilman Gurnee ABSENT: None 2. At this time the City Council considered the FINAL PASSAGE of ORDINANCE NO. 628, an ordinance of the City of San Luis Obispo amending certain provisions of the Municipal Code concerning the licensing and vaccination of dogs. A.J. Shaw, City Attorney, briefed the amended sections in Ordinance No. 628, dealing with licensing of the dogs within the County of Sah Luis Obispo under the new County Animal Control organization.. 1 1 1- J City Council Minutes . December 16, 1974 Page 4 He also submitted a proposal from Central Coast Laboratories to.prepare a geological report of the Johnson Avenue widening to include both field work and preparation of maps for $400. On motion of Councilman.Gurnee,. seconded by.Councilman Brown the recommendation-of the Planning Commission and Planning Director. was, approved and the staff was authorized to retain the proper consultants to prepare the work. 4. The Council subcommittee,'Councilmen Graham and Gurnee,. 1 submitted their report. on the Veterans'. Memorial Building acquisition and the County space needs. The Council subcommittee reported that they had met with representatives of-the County of San Luis Obispo and Supervisors Kopper and Kresja and the County's consultant on capital facilities to discuss the future of the San Luis Obispo Veterans' Memorial Building. The subcommittee discussed in detail County plans to remodel the Vets'. Building to accommodate additional courtroom space, the consequences of these plans on the operations of the Vets' Building, the possibilities and consequences of the City's purchase of the structure, and the overall implications of the County's space needs as.they related.to impacts on the San Luis Obispo downtown area. The Council-subcommittee then presented various findings to.the City Council- and made the following.recommendations: 1. The City should not .attempt to purchase the Veterans' Memorial Building. 2. The City should support, not oppose, the County's.plans for remodeling the Vets' Building. ° 3. The City should make positive overtures to the County Board of ' Supervisors by offering City assistance to work with County staff, the long -range space needs committee, the capital facilities consultant, and the Board of Supervisors in their capital.facil- ities and space needs program. The City Council discussed with the subcommittee members their recommendation and on motion-of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Graham that the CitynCouncil accept the subcommittee's recommendation items 1, 2.,, and 3, motion carried, all ayes. The City Clerk was instructed to submit a copy of the Committee's report to the Downtown Association, the Chamber of Commerce and the Promotional Coordinating Committee. Memorandum from David Williamson, Assistant Administrative Officer, regarding the City acquisition of property at 1095.Orcutt Road, part of the Orcutt Road overpass project. Mr. Williamson stated that the sale price asked was $19,995, indicated market value based upon assessment figures was $8,000, in 1969 the property sold for $10,500, and an appraisal by City staff showed the property to have a total market value of $13,500. Therefore, he recommended to the City Council that further consideration of acquiring this property at 1095 Orcutt Road be deferred until funds were budgeted for the design, construction, and acquisition of the property necessary to complete the Orcutt overpassing or similar improvements. On motion of Councilman Norris, seconded by Councilman Brown the staff recommendation was accepted and the offer to purchase the property.was ordered received and filed. City Council Minutes December 16, 1974 Page 5 6. Memorandum from Robert Strong, Planning Director, regarding the closure of Mountain View Avenue at Old Garden Creek. He stated that the City staff had reviewed the proposal for the possible closure of Mission Street and Mountain View Avenue with the crossings of Old Garden Creek and also an evaluation of the Mission Street culvert as far as a flood hazard was concerned or whether important circulation and access routes ran through this area. He continued that neither of the two local street crossings were considered essential, but the closure of Mission Street would create abnormally long blocks and inconvenience a great number of residents utilizing this access to their properties. Further, he felt the Mission Street culvert did not appear to constitute a significant flood hazard in that it did not endanger structural improvements and only once since its construction in the early 1950's had it ever topped. In contrast, the culvert at Mountain View had less than a 10 -year storm capacity and was considered by the staff sufficiently deficient to warrant high priority on the City's C.I.P. for flood hazard abatement. The present estimate to correct this problem would be in the area of $50,000. The closure of Mountain View with Garden Creek would not substantially alter convenient local circulation within the neighborhood because Center Street and Lincoln Avenue, 300 feet to the north and south, respectively, would still accommodate east -west movement. In reaching the conclusion that Mountain View crossing of Old Garden Creek should be considered for abandonment rather than reconstruction, the City staff considered the following factors: 1. The hillside residential area bounded by San Luis Peak, Foothill Boulevard community shopping area, Stenner Creek and the freeway was generally oriented to the north -south through Broad and Chorro Streets. Eastwest access to the neighborhood was limited to Murray Street connecting Broad and Chorro to Santa Rosa, or further north, either through Meinecke or Foothill Boulevard. 2. South of Murray none of the local streets cross Stenner Creek to provide connection to Santa Rosa, thus reinforcing the collector characteristics of Chorro and Broad. 3. All commercial, health care, school and park facilities serving this residential area, with the exception of the small convenience shopping cluster at Broad and Lincoln, were located outside the neighborhood, thus reinforcing the use of Chorro and Broad as neighborhood collector routes. 4. Neither police nor fire service response times would be affected significantly by closure of Mountain View nor was the street an important or essential local traffic circulation route. S. Traffic counts of March, 1974 at Old Garden Creek on Mountain View Avenue substantiated that it was a lightly travelled, local street accommodating approximately 400 vehicles per day. Although both Lincoln and Center undoubtedly experience a larger traffic volume, the former functioning as a connection between Chorro and the Broad Street freeway ramps, both could easily accommodate the additional 250 to 300 average daily traffic that the proposed closure would divert. 6. From estimates prepared by the City Engineer (March 12, 1974) the cost to remove the culvert at Mountain View, stabilize the banks, construct barricades and modify sewer and water lines, would be approximately $10,000, while the estimate for reconstructing the Mountain View culvert was approximately $50,000. Perhaps additional landscaping, a pocket park playground, curb, gutter and sidewalk modifications and minor signing modifications might be considered as optional amenities concurrent with street closure and removal of the culvert at an additional cost of $5,000. Contrasted with $50,000 for reconstruction, the $15,000 total expense for closure appeared feasible. City Council Minutes December 16,..1974 . Page 6 While the staff was prepared-to discuss.both Mission and Mountain View Street closures with.the City Council; they rec6inmended that only the Mountain View closure-be pursued at this time. .Mission Street-should, in the staff-opinion, be retained at least until Zone 9 flood control studies were completed: If the City Council concurred with staff recommendation for closure of Mountain View Avenue, it would be appropriate to schedule Planning-Commission and City Council public hearings on the street abandonment pr ;nposal, but that both the Traffic Committee and Waterways Planning Board should con- sider the proposal.prior to the public hearings by the City Council and Planning Commission. On motion of Councilman Norris,.seconded by Councilman Brown that the _City Council accept the staff recommendation and refer the matter.to the Planning Commission for studies on street abandonment of Mountain View Avenue with prior input by the Waterways Planning Board and the Traffic Committee. Motion carried., all ayes. 7. Robert Strong, Planning Director,-submitted for.the Council's consideration and information a tentative work program and topics of concern for further study of the environmental and economic impacts of. Cal Poly growth and development.; The.lengthy report was broken down into descriptions of the various projects, environmental setting ,'the.environmental.impact of.proposed.projects,.and . a list of 33 items which could be of mutual concern for discussion by the City and Cal Poly staff. Robert Strong reviewed in detail a most comprehensive report prepared by the City on this subject. E..Douglas Gerard, Executive Dean, California Polytechnic State University, stated to the City Council that.the University.staff did not receive a copy of Mr. Strong's report until 4 p.m. December 16.,,1974, and they naturally did not have an opportunity to react to the proposal or to make.suggestions to the City Council. They.did..not even have time to analyze the recommenda -. tions of the report. He asked the City Council on behalf of the University administration to continue the matter to a future meeting so that input could be placed in the record before the City Council on behalf of the University. He continued. that since the last meeting with the City Council at which this matter was.discussed, the University staff awaited a.call.from the City staff' to.meet and to prepare.a'joint report to the City Council. But; this report which was not received until 4 p.m. this date was done without any input from the University. On motion of Councilman Norris, seconded by Councilman Graham that this matter be continued to a.special adjourned meeting on.February 24, 1975 for input by both the University and City staff for Council consideration. Motion carried, Councilman Gurnee voting no. Prior to leaving the meeting, Douglas Gerard, Executive Dean, submitted a report to the City Council with information on enrollment trends and .. . student characteristics dated December 10, 1974 and prepared by L.H. Dunigan, director of.institutional research for the University. 8. Robert Strong, Planning Director, submitted for the Council's consideration and approval a consultant-contract for general plan technical services by Envicom for environmental evaluations, seismic safety and noise elements. He reviewed for the City. Council the scope of the work _.to be done by Envicom, the-extent-of the program-, and.the.results expected from the contract. The estimated cost for technical services in the agreement was $16,456, payable monthly upon-progress billings with the first report to be completed by January 1,1975 and the second and third segments to be completed.between February and June, 1975.

On motion..of.Councilman Graham,.seconded by Councilman Brown that the City Council accept the.proposal.of Envicom and that the Mayor be authorized to sign -the contract. Motion carried. 9. Memorandum from Robert.Strong, Planning Director, regarding acquisition -by the City of Corporation Yard facilities at Broad Street between South and Alphonso Streets. He stated that the City staff had studied alternate areas for development of a.corporation.yaid including current City owned property in the.vicinity of the sewer.farm, which the staff felt would be more economical for development as a corporation yard.in the event the Council authorized further investigation of such proposals. It -was the staff recommendation, based on economical and acceptable alternative locations; that the City Council notify Mr. Maino that they were -not interested in the Broad- South.Street property and staff would propose further alternate sites if the Council wished this to be included in the Capital Improvement.Program. On motion.of. Councilman .Gurnee,...seconded.by Councilman Graham that:the. City.notify Mr. Maino that they- .did..not wish to purchase the property on Broad Street and that the City staff.include' further proposals -in the C.I.P. if they so desired. Motion carried'.

City Council Minutes December 16,:1974 Page 8 On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Councilman Brown the.following resolution was introduced:' Resolution No. 2707 (1974 Series), .4 resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo providing for and giving notice of a General.Municipal Election on March 4, 1975; authorizing..con solidation.of the election with Board of Education and'Community College and School District elections; and placing.on the ballot a proposed charter amendment authorizing infraction penalties for ordinance violations. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Gurnee, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: None 13. Robert Strong, Planning-Director, stated that the Zone .9 Advisory Committee suggested that.the City Council consider revising its request that the Marsh Street bridge be planned and programmed for immediate replacement.. Subsequent corrective work had been accomplished by-Cal Trans, and segments of the creek both upstream and downstream of this bridge were now greater.constrictions than the bridge itself.. Three current studies, the Zone 9 Master Flood Control P1an,..the Regional Transportation Plan, and the-General Plan of the'City might influence the appropriate.design for Marsh Street bridge replacement, and should be considered before construction was committed. All three prerequisite plans should be..completed prior to'1976, and bridge'replace.ment was cur- rently programmed for construction in 1977: Therefore, the City Planning staff.recommended that the Council amend Resolution No. 2422 to request that Cal Trans continue to program sufficient.funds for Marsh Street bridge replacement or other appropriate corrective construction during 1977, but that design alternatives be evaluated with respect to pending flood control, transportation, cir- culation and land use plans. On motion of Councilman Brown,-.seconded by Councilman Norris the following resolution was introduced: Resolution No. 2705 (1974 Series), a.resolution of the Council.of the City of San Luis Obispo supplementing Resolution No..24.22 regarding corrective flood action in'the vicinity of the Marsh Street bridge off -ramp from Highway 101. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: . AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Gurnee, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: None 14. Memorandum.from Robert Strong, Planning Director; reporting that various portions of property had been offered to the City by Cal Trans. These properties were surplus to street widenings acquired on Broad Street. He suggested the City Council consider.purchase of the property at-Santa Barbara Avenue and Broad'Street and.to indicate any interest in the Chorro and Broad or.Orcutt and Broad.locations to Cal Trans. 'He continued that the property at Santa Barbara and Broad Street was being offered by the State for the purchase price of $16,300. He concluded.that the reason for recommending the acquisition of the Broad -Santa Barbara parcel was that some day there would be widening needed on Santa Barbara Avenue and the future.possibility.of South-Street being extended over Broad Street for an overcrossing might require further acquisition of property at these intersections'. Therefore, the staff.recommended.that the City Council consider purchase of this.property. f 1 City Council Minutes December 16, 1974 Page 9 On motion of Mayor Schwartz, seconded by Councilman Brown that the matter of acquiring the property at Broad and Santa Barbara Avenue be continued for appraisal by City staff and report back at the January 6, 1975 meeting. Motion carried, all ayes. On motion of Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Brown that the City notify the State that the other parcels of land were unwanted by the City. Motion carried. ' 15. Memorandum from Councilman T. Keith Gurnee regarding the City Council's action on the County's Use of the City Jail Facility for juvenile detention. He asked that the City Council reconsider their action in leasing this facility at $1,000 per month. He stated he felt that the $1,000 per month figure was not really based on any factual valuation of the use of the facilities being requested by the County. Also, he felt that the County was facing severe problems on the junevile detention issue and that many of these juveniles were citizens of San Luis Obispo and therefore, he felt the City should encourage and perhaps assist the County in a more acceptable permanent solution to the problem in the shortest time possible. He suggested that rather than such an exorbitant rent as $1,000 per month, that the County should be allowed to use the facilities for a period no longer than six months, that the County would provide for supervision of our facility when used for County juvenile detention, and that the County would pay rent either on actual and justified cost of utility usage and other maintenance and operation costs to the City which could be attributed to the County usage of the facility. Or, if these were not acceptable, he would recommend that the County be allowed free use of the facility within a strict six month time period. R.D. Miller, Administrative Officer, again reviewed the Council action taken at the December 9, 1974 meeting at which time staff recommended a minimum rent of $1,000 per month based upon replacement cost for the ' property being used by the County plus the rehabilitation of the facility when and if the County were to move. The City Council discussed various alternatives as proposed by Councilman Gurnee but felt that the decision had been made and accepted by the County. Since this decision was accepted, they did not feel it should be changed. The memorandum from Councilman Gurnee was ordered received and filed. 16. David Williamson, Assistant Administrative Officer, submitted to the City Council a report regarding the status of applications currently being processed by the City for building or other development permits which would be granted after the effective date of recently enacted Ordinance No. 604 -A. He submitted a detailed list of 12 projects and then analyzed them as to the deficiencies which would be recognized under Ordinance No. 604 -A. The City Council discussed in detail various projects going through the City at this time, and rather than make a decision at this time, the staff was asked to prepare a priority list of work that must be done in order to alleviate any overburdened facilities involved in these projects. The report to be submitted at the January 6, 1975 City Council meeting. ' 17. Communication from Gerald Mason, Attorney at Law, representing the San Luis Brick Company on Broad Street-stating that the San Luis Brick Company, due to the widening of Broad Street took out plans and permits for construction of new buildings on their property at the new setback line, but due to an apparent error in locating the building caused by the dis- appearance of one of the survey controls established by Cal Trans on Broad Street the building was set into the minimum setback lines in effect by the City in this zone. City Council Minutes December 16, 1974 Page 10 The discrepancy at the maximum encroachment point would be 1.7 feet on Mutsuhito Avenue and 1.6 feet at the front on Broad Street. To rectify this error for which the property owner really was not liable or responsible would cost the property owner at least $20,000 to tear down brick walls and recast the foundation. The project had been approved by both the City Planning Commission and the Architectural Review Commission. He therefore requested that the City grant a variance to permit encroaching on the setback lines of 1.7 feet on Mutsuhito Avenue and 1.6 feet on Broad Street. A.J. Shaw, City Attorney, explained the problem to the City Council and ' Robert Strong, Planning Director, reviewed with sketches exactly what the encroachment would do to the property and to the setback lines on both streets. After discussion by the City Council, it was moved by Councilman Gurnee, seconded by Councilman Norris that the following resolution was introduced: Resolution No. 2701 (1974 Series), a resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo authorizing completion of a non - conforming building. Passed and adopted on the following roll call vote: AYES: Councilmen Brown, Graham, Gurnee, Norris and Mayor Schwartz NOES: None ABSENT: None 18. A.J. Shaw, City Attorney, submitted for the Council's consideration an agreement between the American Bonding Company, the bonding company for Mid -State Construction Company.'were the bankrupt contractors for the Senior Citizens Center, and the City of San Luis Obispo, which in part required that the City pay to the bonding company the unpaid balance for construction of the building. The bonding company would then make up the difference between the unpaid balance and what was claimed owed to the various subcon- tractors and suppliers and they would pay off these claims. The agreement also stated that the bonding company would indemnify the City from any future liability of claims for non - payment of material and labor on the Senior Citizens Center and also would indemnify the City from any claims by the bankruptcy referee. A.J. Shaw recommended that the City Council accept the agreement and authorize the Mayor to sign on behalf of the City. On motion of Councilman Graham, seconded by Councilman Gurnee the following resolution was introduced: Resolution No. 2704 (1974 Series), a resolution of the Council of the City of San Luis Obispo approving an indemnification agreement between the City of San Luis Obispo and American Bonding Company.
