The San Ramon City Council is set to welcome back three familiar faces Tuesday evening when re-elected Mayor Bill Clarkson and councilmen Phil O'Loane and Scott Perkins take the oath of office during a ceremony at San Ramon City Hall.
O'Loane and Perkins finished in the top two spots in a four-candidate race for a pair of council seats being contested Nov. 8. Clarkson won as the only mayoral candidate, appearing unopposed on the November ballot.
Clarkson's upcoming two-year term, which runs through December 2018, marks his third straight term after first being elected in 2011. San Ramon mayors are limited to a maximum of four terms.
Perkins won his fourth consecutive term in November while O'Loane's victory was his second straight term. Both will serve four-year terms that run through December 2020. There are no term limits for City Council.
The trio will take the oath of office administered by city clerk Renee Beck to begin their new terms Tuesday evening.
The swearing-in ceremony is the main topic set for the regular council meeting, scheduled to start at 7 p.m. inside the council chamber at City Hall, 7000 Bollinger Canyon Road.
The rest of the council's docket consists of a seven-item consent agenda and approval of meeting minutes from the council's Nov. 22 regular meeting and special workshop on revenue enhancements.
The consent agenda, a collection of items deemed routine and voted upon all at once unless an item is pulled for separate consideration, includes approving nearly $465,000 in new or amended contracts for work on four city projects.
Those contracts include a maximum $275,000 contract with Breneman, Inc. for sidewalk repairs and miscellaneous concrete repair work and a maximum $105,000 with Toole Design Group to implement the San Ramon Bike Master Plan.
As part of the consent agenda, the council will also consider changing city parking restrictions on six streets, adding new red "no parking" curb paint along portions of Bellingham Square, Canyon Crest Drive, Foxboro Circle, Goldenbay Avenue, Hibiscus Road and Trumpet Vine Road.
In other business, the council is scheduled to hold a closed-session special meeting earlier Tuesday evening, beginning at 6 p.m. in the council chamber at City Hall.
The council members will conduct a performance evaluation for interim city manager Joe Gorton, who has served in the temporary role since July 1 after previous city manager Greg Rogers retired.
A career law enforcement official, Gorton also works concurrently as San Ramon's police chief -- a position he's held since late 2013.
The city hasn't started to recruit for a new permanent city manager, with the sitting council wanting to wait until after the Nov. 8 council election before deciding how to proceed with the hiring process.
Also during closed session, the council will talk about price and terms of payment relating to the sale of city property at 10 Boardwalk Place, a parcel on the west side of the city off Crow Canyon Road between Bollinger Canyon and Old Crow Canyon roads that was once home to the popular Mudd's restaurant.
People can attend the beginning of the special meeting and offer public comment when the council first convenes before adjourning into closed session -- which is not open to the public. Any action taken in closed session must be announced in open session afterward.
