Approving Final Map and Improvement Agreement for Landmark Plaza Subdivision

 

Councilmember Christensen announced that the Landmark Plaza site would be discussed in detail later tonight during the Daly City Redevelopment Agency’s meeting.

 

It was moved by Councilmember Christensen, seconded by Councilmember Torres and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:

 

      Resolution No. 08-39, Accepting and Approving Final Subdivision Map, Authorizing Execution of a Companion Subdivision Improvement Agreement for the Landmark Plaza Subdivision and Accepting Offer of Dedication for Pedestrian Access (Daly City, California)

 

COMMUNICATIONS:

 

Coastal Development Permit and Environmental Assessment for the Construction of a New Deck, Fence Replacement, Lower Level Addition and Garage Reconfiguration at 35 Seaview Drive

 

            Senior Planner Tatum Mothershead outlined the project site in a PowerPoint presentation, pointing out its adjacent position to the coastal bluff. The proposed 33 square foot addition on the lower level, in conjunction with the new deck square footage, will result in total lot coverage of 42%, which is well within the maximum 50% allowed for the R-1 zoning. Additionally, the development is located within 300 feet of the coastal bluff, well outside the Resource Protection limits, which limits any reconstruction to be at least 50 feet from the coastal bluff. Also, tandem parking will be converted to a side by side configuration. The Planning Commission is forwarding a recommendation of project approval.

 

            In response to Councilmember Torres’ question regarding the Coastal Commission, Ms. Mothershead stated that applications are shown to the commission and the Council’s determinations are sent to the commission.

 

It was moved by Councilmember Guingona, seconded by Councilmember Gomez and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:

 

Resolution No. 08-40, Adopting Findings of Fact  and Imposing Conditions of Approval on Coastal Development Permit (UP07-8), to Construct a New Deck, Fence Replacement, Lower Level Addition and Garage Reconfiguration (35 Seaview Drive)

 

AWARD OF BIDS/CONTRACTS:

 

Mussel Rock Landfill Site Maintenance 2008

 

            Interim Director of Public Works Patrick Sweetland stated that staff recommends awarding a construction contract for the subject project to Stoloski & Gonzalez, Inc. in the total bid amount of $617,010. Stoloski & Gonzalez has been in business since 1985 and has successfully completed the Daly City the Mussel Rock/Avalon Canyon Repairs in 2003 and the Mussel Rock Site Maintenance in 2005 and 2006.

 

The construction cost for the Base Bid and Add Alternate 1, including a 10% contingency and a 5% construction inspection, is $709,570. Since funding of $153,738 is available in the Mussel Rock Maintenance Capital Project Account, staff proposes to borrow the remaining $555,832 from the City’s Self Insurance Fund. The borrowed funds would be repaid over the next two years.

 

In response to Councilmember Gomez’ question, Mr. Sweetland stated that the construction will use metal piping.

 

It was moved by Councilmember Torres, seconded by Councilmember Guingona and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:

 

            Resolution No. 08-41, Authorizing Execution of Contract with Stoloski & Gonzalez, Inc. (Mussel Rock Landfill Site Maintenance 2008 Project)

 

RESOLUTIONS:

 

Determination of Extraordinary Expenses Under City’s Franchise Agreement with Allied Waste Services for Integrated Waste Management

 

            Director of Finance Don McVey stated that the Mussel Rock Transfer Station, owned by the City of Daly City and leased to Allied Waste, is used to transfer garbage from packer trucks, self-haul garbage, and recyclables to long-haul trucks for disposal at Ox Mountain Land Fill or for recycling. Under the Franchise Agreement for Integrated Waste Management Services, the city has agreed to review requests for extraordinary costs so that the franchisee can recover this under a future rate setting. Mr. McVey proceeded to outline the needed repairs on the transfer station with an overhead presentation.

 

            Councilmember Christensen wondered if the repairs at Mussel Rock are due to normal wear or from deferred maintenance. Mr. McVey pointed out that the Earth’s natural movement is the main cause of the roadway problems. Councilmember Christensen requested the city and Allied Waste to remain vigilant on keeping up an appropriate maintenance schedule for the transfer station.

 

It was moved by Councilmember Torres, seconded by Councilmember Guingona and carried by unanimous roll call vote to adopt the following resolution:

 

            Resolution No. 08-42, Determining Extraordinary Expenses Under City’s Franchise Agreement for Integrated Waste Management with Allied Waste Services

 

PUBLIC APPEARANCES/ORAL COMMUNICATIONS:

 

            Paul Malolot, Daly City resident, suggested a nonprofit agency to monitor Allied Waste and to act as a mediator between the public and the company. For security purposes, Mr. Malolot also suggested that libraries require picture IDs along with passwords when checking out items since patrons are able to borrow up to 50 items at a time. Councilmembers Torres and Christensen supported Mr. Malolot’s ideas regarding library usage.
