Street Signal Installation Paul Lanspery, Administrative Officer, r expenditures Council could use in making list for street signals. Currently, the number one priority as Tank Farm /Higuera hope to find an-additional $70,000 to do Drive and Foothill Blvd. Illustrated as aviewed possible resources and a determination of the priority Council had indicated.the traffic signal and they would a second signal at Patricia. . follows: Resources Expenditures 80,000 CIP 3 signals @ $70,000 = .$210,000 20,000 Tank-Farm need $97,500 12,500 Calle Joaquin 2 signals.@ $75,000 = ..$150,000 $112,500 need $37,500 or $57,500 depend- ing on the combination of signals. Councilman Settle stated that he would prefer to.change the.priority leaving Tank Farm as number one, moving priority three to number two, that of Madonna Road / Calle Joaquin. He felt the safety factor warranted the Madonna Road signal over that of Patricia Drive. Paul Lanspery suggested that $25,000 could be taken from Revenue Sharing, presently in contingencies for the traffic signals. Councilman Griffin preferred the priority with Tank Farm first, Patricia Drive second and Madonna Road / Calle Joaquin third. Councilman Dunin agreed with Councilman Settle, viewing that the traffic at the Calle Joaquin /Madonna Road was critical. Wayne Peterson, City Engineer, reminded the Council that the priority for the Patricia Drive signal came as a result of a petition circulated by the Patricia Drive neighborhood who were concerned with school children traversing Foothill Blvd. Councilwoman Dovey'suggesfed that Calle'Joaquin and Madonna Road and the Patricia Drive with the'Tank Farm as number three. After discussion, and upon general consensus, staff was directed to go out to bid for all three signals and prepare specs so that the award of the third signal would not be mandatory with the priority list as follows: 1) Patricia Drive /Foothill; 2) Madonna Road / Calle Joaquin; and 3) Tank Farm /Higuera Street. Council agreed to transfer $25,000 from Revenue Sharing (budget contingencies) to traffic signals, provided that the bed tax measure is approved by the voters in November. (5 =0) 2. EMT II Funding Rudy Muravez, Finance Director, explained that the City had appropriated $8,000 under Non - Departmental Budget to cover the City's contribution to the EMS agency, to be encumbered and carried forward to the 1982 -83 budget. In the 82 -83 preliminary budget there was an additional $8,000 proposed under Non - Departmental Budget to continue participation in the regional EMS agency. Those funds are to be used for tuition payments and overtime expenses for firefighters attending EMT II training. The equipment requirements for start up of the EMT II program are estimated at $10,885. He would recommend the Fire Department's budget be augmented under Fire Emergency Response for an amount of $10,900. Councilman Griffin was concerned that although the funding had been determined for this year for the initial start up, staff keep a.check list or determine a mechanism to highlight key points that might arise that should come back to the Council prior to implementation. City Council Minutes Thursday, June 24, 1982 - 12:10 p.m. Page 3 Councilman Dunin agreed. He felt that the Council should be made aware of any unanticipated problems the Fire Department might be faced with. Mayor Billig also suggested that should funding for the EMT program become scarce or the participation from other agencies reduced, that future funding determination for the EMT II program be placed before the voters. Staff was also urged to consider user charges as part of the implementation program. (5 -0) C. New Budget Request 1. Parking Meter Collection Equipment Rudy Muravez, Finance Director, stated he had received a request from Dennis Cox, the Safety Coordinator, for the recommendation to purchase new equipment designed for the collection of meter coins. He stated the equipment currently being used was over ten years old and was obsolete. He would recommend that the 1982 -83 budget be increased by $2,800 to cover the cost of the new equipment. On motion of Councilman Dunin, seconded by Councilman Griffin, to approve $2,800 for the parking meter collection equipment request in the 1982 -83 budget. (5 -0) D. Discussion of Parking Lot on Monterey & Broad Streets Wayne Peterson, City Engineer, suggested the Council jointly participate with Mr. Spradlin for a proposed parking lot improvement at the corner of Monterey and Broad Streets, which would allow 20 parking spaces, 7 to be owned by Mr. Spradlin. The cost to construct the lot was estimated at $13,500. Landscaping and a sign would cost $7,000 and Mission style sidewalk constructed across both frontages of the city owned property was estimated at $20,000. The total project cost was estimated to be $40,500. He stated that since Mr. Spradlin would have 7 spaces he would suggest Mr. Spradlin's participation be 35% of the cost of the project, not include the Mission style sidewalk which has already been constructed across the front of the Spradlin property. After brief discussion, and upon general consensus, it was moved by Councilman Dunin, and seconded by Councilman Griffin, to approve joint City /Property Owner parking lot project for 20 spaces. The lot construc- tion and landscaping to come from Parking Facilities, City's share to be $13,400. The Mission style sidewalk to come from the Mission Plaza fund, City's share $10,000 previously budgeted and construction to be only on the Broad Street frontage of City property. Motion carried, (5 -0) E. City Hall Entrance Remodeling Paul Lanspery, Administrative Officer, explained that to remodel the entrance of City Hall he has estimate and preliminary plans for $125,000. He questioned that the Council was interested in pursuing this. After brief discussion, and upon general consensus, Council agreed that no major remodeling be done at this time but that staff simply be directed to maintain an adequate job of pruning, planting.annuals and those types of beautification not requiring major costs.
