S.R. City Council Agenda, Oct 11th


Our thanks to our friend, Anne Seeley, of Concerned Citizens For Santa Rosa, for her analysis of this Tuesday's City Council agenda:

Friends:    There is no Study Session before this 4PM meeting.
I begin with Report items, because there are many important ones.

14.1 Referendum - Petition Challenging Ordinance #4072, the Rent Stabilization and Just Cause Eviction Ordinance. This is an update from staff on how this challenge will (or will not) proceed.
You've likely read of the petition drive funded by The California Apartment Association challenging the ordinance.  Many signatures were obtained using mixed-up language that lead signers to think that they were signing to support Rent Stabilization. See below for more info;

14.2 Expanded Year-Round Community Homeless Assistance Program (CHAP).  It is recommended by the Housing and Community Services Department that the Council issue regulations to allow for immediate implementation of the Year-Round CHAP.  See more below:

14.3 Plan Bay Area Draft Preferred Scenario.  It is recommended by the Planning and Economic Development Department that the Council provide direction for comments to be sent to the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC) and the Association of Bay Area Governments (ABAG) regarding the draft scenario and to authorize the mayor to sign a letter submitting those comments.

14.4 One Bay Area Grant 2 (OBAG2) (Everything has its acronym!)
    The Sonoma County Transportation Authority (SCTA) will release a call for for projects in November. This is a request from the City of Santa Rosa that the Council will discuss.

14.5 Measure Y -Should the Council Endorse Measure Y, the Sonoma County Library 1/8 percent sales tax to restore and enhance Library Services?
14.6 Proposition 52 - The Council will discuss whether to endorse Prop 52.  This is about protecting the funding that the state collects from hospitals that is required of hospitals to allow them to receive Medi-Cal payments.

15 Public Hearings
  15.1 Short-Range Transit Plan for Possible Adoption. It is recommended by the Transit and Public Works Department that the Council adopt the Fiscal Year 2016-2025 Short Range Transit Plan.

29.  Upcoming Meetings

See you there!
