Tonight’s Campbell City Council meeting is the first for 2012 and will deal with the purchase of a hybrid car, the awarding of Phase II for the Campbell Avenue Resurfacing Project, officially declaring war on weeds and by the Gaslighter Theater owners.
The Campbell City Council meeting will take place at 70 N. First St. at 7:30 p.m. in council chambers.
The consent calendar has nine items tonight, including the approval of the improvements made by Interstate Grading and Paving, Inc. along Campbell Avenue and the award of the project’s Phase II. Because this type of work requires warmer weather, the project will be publicized in May and the completion of this phase is estimated as Spring 2012.
Improvements to this portion of the two-part project include:
- Installation of a 2” rubberized asphalt concrete on Campbell Avenue from east of Hunt Avenue to west of San Tomas Expressway.
- Repairing localized pavement failure or dig outs between the eastern part of San Tomas Expressway and Jeffers Avenue.
- Installation of a 2” rubberized asphalt concrete on Campbell Avenue between Jeffers Avenue and Winchester Boulevard.
- Repair of localized pavement failures between Winchester Boulevard and 4th Street.
Also on this list is the authorization of the purchase of a new Ford Fusion hybrid for the Superintendent of Public Works, an estimated cost of $32,000 that will come out of the Vehicle and Equipment Maintenance Operating Budget for the fiscal year 2011-12. This vehicle will be the city’s second hybrid car purchase.
Under the "Public Hearings and Introduction of New Ordinances" section of tonight's agenda is the city's official declaration of war on weeds as well as the appeal of Melodann, Inc., owners of the former Gaslighter Theater.
Council at the Dec. 6, 2011 meeting made the official declaration of war on weeds. Tonight, it will allow the Santa Clara County Agricultural Commissioner's Office to move forward on 38 properties in Campbell that have "hazardous vegetation."
Last on the agenda of this section is the appeal by Melodann, Inc. of the Oct. 25 decision by the Campbell Planning Commission denying a Conditional Use Permit (PLN2011-111) to allow the proposed business to exist as a restaurant and lounge and offer general alcohol sales, live entertainment, and late night activity on property located at 400 E. Campbell Avenue. The planning commission is recommending that council upholds its decision to deny the CUP.
