Kim Giuliano will announce the Art & Wind Festival, which is coming up in only two weeks. Darlene Amaral will give a presentation on Bike to Work Day coming up on May 14th. Karen Stepper will announce the Exchange Club of San Ramon Valley's Scholarship Award.
The City Council will appoint a replacement for Gordon Kimber on the Transportation Advisory Committee. Kimber served on the Committee for 12 years and was honored for his service at the Marcy 12, 2009 City Council Meeting. The City received six applications for the vacancy and after interviewing five of the six applicants, the Planning Commission recommends Victoria Harris for the appointment.
The Council will hold a Public Hearing to apply for an Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant for $215,600 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The money will be used to convert all city-owned street and parking lot lights to low energy LED's. LEDs, Light Emitting Diodes, not only save energy but can last 50,000 to 80,000 hours longer than traditional street lighting.
Following the meeting the Council will hold a Closed Session to evaluate the City Attorney and City Manager. Another Closed Session will be held to discuss two properties located between Creekside Road and Crow Canyon Road just West of Park Place.
