EBC|AGENDA: June 8-14 — Warriors parade cancels Oakland meetings; FREMONT council raises; SAN LEANDRO fiber optics master plan

SAN LEANDROCity Council work session, Monday, June 11, 7 p.m.
ENTIRE AGENDA HERE | Next meeting: June 18.
–FIBER-OPTIC MASTER PLAN– San Leandro’s downtown fiber-optics network is the envy of neighboring cities. The city, though, is looking for ways to improve the network, which has doubled in size in the past few years to 20 miles, and locate areas to expand. The network not only gives access to high-speed internet to some residents but more importantly, is a significant lure for tech companies that require processing of large amounts of data, to come to San Leandro. Monday’s work session is entirely focused on a draft fiber optics master plan.

–CITY MANAGER RETURNS– Monday night’s work session also marks the return of City Manager Chris Zapata. The findings of an independent investigation released June 4 into allegations of sexual misconduct by Rose Padilla Johnson, the CEO of the Davis Street Family Resource Center, led the City Council to reinstate Zapata. The meeting will be Zapata’s first since he was placed on paid administrative leave on Jan. 18.


FREMONTRegular City Council meeting , Tuesday, June 12, 7 p.m.
ENTIRE AGENDA HERE | Next meeting: June 19.
–COUNCIL SALARY INCREASE– A Fremont city ordinance allows the council and mayor to give itself a salary increase based on the Consumer Price Index, although capped at 4 percent. This year, the CPI is just a tad below that maximum marker. “Applying the annualized rate of 3.88% over the two year period from December 2016 to December 2018 would result in the Councilmembers’ salaries increasing from $2,118.89 per month to $2,286.51 per month and the Mayor’s salary increasing from $3,764.52 per month to $4,062.31 per month,” according to a staff report.

–Staff, though, recommends, “As an alternative benchmark, the City Council could consider the annual salary increases it approved for all City employees (except police) during this same two-year period: 3.00% increases effective July 1, 2017, and July 1, 2018. At that 3.00% annualized rate, Councilmembers’ salaries would increase to $2,247.93 per month and the Mayor’s salary would increase to $3,993.78 per month.” The changes, if approved, would go in effect for the next council, sworn-in next December.

–POLICE DATA-SHARING MOU– At the Public Safety Committee, the city is being asked to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, Probation, and Superior Courts to switch over to the county’s new data-sharing system “designed to promote inter-operability among a variety of criminal justice computer systems within and outside Alameda County.” Oversight of the system will given to Information Technology representatives from each agency.

–MORATORIUM ON SALE OF PUBLIC LANDS– Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan is proposing a 180-day moratorium on the sale of public lands at the Community & Economic Development Committee. “The community has been calling on the City to develop and implement a responsible public lands policy, which a broad coalition of stakeholders are in the process of authoring. In the meantime, we must take the steps necessary to ensure that valuable public land is not sold off for private interests, and lost to the taxpayers of Oakland,” writes Kaplan.
