The San Ramon City Council on Tuesday (July 22) is set to receive a presentation on water use and water management strategies amid the current California drought.
The presentation will include discussion of the water supply for the city's water providers, East Bay Municipal Utility District and Dublin-San Ramon Services District.
More efficient landscaping practices for local agencies and conversion of turf strips in the Dougherty Valley to landscaping that require less water use are also topics to be addressed in the drought discussion during the council meeting, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. inside the council chambers at 2222 Camino Ramon.
In other business, the council is set to conduct a public hearing regarding Building and Safety Services' statement of expenses for unpaid abatement costs, fees and fines. The public hearing is an unfinished business item from the July 8 council meeting.
The council will also discuss the eighth amendment to the Bishop Ranch annexation and development agreement and the sixth amendment to a portion of Chevron Park annexation and development agreement. The amendments are listed as discussion-only items, with final consideration expected to occur on Aug. 12.
The council will appoint new representatives to serve on the Senior Citizen Advisory Committee, Arts Advisory Committee, Central Contra Costa Transit Authority and as Poet Laureate.
Karen McNamara, interim Parks and Community Services director, will introduce the new county librarian, Jessica Hudson. City Manager Greg Rogers will give an update on the new City Hall construction project as well.
