Paso Robles City Council Meeting Highlights from 9/26/2018
California Voting Rights Act Challenge–approved a resolution expressing the City Council’s intention to initiate procedures for establishing and implementing by-district elections for City Council Members pursuant to Elections Code § 10010 and appropriating approximately $60,000 for costs. This item is in response to threatened litigation from Malibu-based attorney Kevin Shenkman, who has threatened similar litigation against numerous cities throughout California. No city has yet to successfully defend itself from one of these legal challenges and every city has incurred significant legal fees, up to $4M. Under State law, plaintiffs in these cases are able to get legal fees from cities they sue.
Airport Lease Agreement–approved the Assignment and Assumption of Municipal Airport Property Lease of Laura Coats Revocable Trust to the Thomas Allen Schulz Revocable Trust for property commonly known as 4350 Cloud Way in the Airport Industrial Park.
Centennial Park Roof Repair–approved authorization for the City Manager to enter into a contract for Centennial Park Roof Repair with the lowest responsive bidder James A. Quaglino, Inc. dba Quaglino Roofing in the amount of $255,860.
Police Department Firearms Purchase and Surplus–approved a resolution declaring the Police Department’s aging firearms as surplus and authorizing the City Manager to enter into a contract with ProForce Law Enforcement Inc. to purchase new Sig Sauer firearms, holsters, and lighting for the Police Department. The City will save $15,980 toward the purchase of new firearms and equipment through this contract. The total cost to the City is $23,317.26.
This represents just a subset of the total actions by the Council. The full agenda (with all the back-up materials) can be found at http://www.prcity.com/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Agenda/_09252018-65
