The San Ramon City Council is set to discuss an array of police department updates during its meeting Tuesday evening.
Police chief Joe Gorton will lead the public presentation, focusing on his department's strategic plan, crime trends and emergency dispatch operations.
The police discussion is among items set for the regular council meeting, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall, 2222 Camino Ramon.
In other business, City Manager Greg Rogers and staff will update the councilmen on the Bollinger Canyon Road widening project, which involves adding a fourth travel lane in each direction on the thoroughfare between Alcosta Boulevard and the Interstate 680 overpass as well as other improvements.
City officials hope to begin work on widening Bollinger Canyon Road between Market Place and the freeway later this year or early next year, with the goal of completing the additions by 2018 before the City Center at Bishop Ranch shopping complex opens, according to city engineer Brian Bornstein.
The council will consider making appointments to the Transportation and Housing advisory committees.
The councilmen will honor Pine Valley Middle School students Maximiano Gonzalez, Chris Hansen and Kevin Barthol for winning the Street Smarts video contest. They will also recognize Harvey Riggs for his work on the Transportation Advisory Committee.
City staff will also introduce the council to new Public Works Division employees Ron Allen, James Cauthren, Lance Graf, John Hodgers, Maria Lusherovich, Scott Rennicks, Gary Savell, Robert Sikes and David Watson.
