Pacifica City Council’s agenda for next Monday’s meeting includes several funding requests for building and infrastructural repair projects and a 2012-2013 budget proposal of $51,532,990.
At the upcoming meeting, City Council will address repairs needed since spring of 2010 at the Pacifica Municipal Pier. The city has received a design proposal from Biggs Cardosa Associates and V&A Consulting Engineers. The Biggs Cardosa Associates proposal included a lower cost at $34,000, and city staff advises the council to approve a contract for this proposal.
California’s Wildlife Conservation Fund would reimburse this amount to make the repairs.
Also on the council’s agenda is to replace an aging sewage pipe and electrical motor at the Sharp Park Pump Station. Dahl-Beck Electric is the favored bidder for both projects, with cost proposals at $37,867 and $32,464 respectively.
San Pedro Creek Bridge, which was built 57 years ago, is also in need of attention. The council will decide whether to approve a revised plan that takes into account the California Coastal Commission’s position that widening the creek is necessary for flood control and restoration.
The bridge replacement project itself would cost approximately $9.5 million, and would be funded through federal, state, and local grants. The creek widening would cost $1.7 million. Fiscal impacts on the city would be $399,968 to be reimbursed by the San Mateo County Transportation Authority.
The council will also be requested to confirm the continued existence of a local emergency, as declared by the Director of Emergency Services of Pacifica, at 380 and 400 Esplanade Avenue due to severe cliff erosion.
The emergency was first proclaimed in April 2010 when the revetment supporting the city storm drainage failed. Pacifica is one of several coastal towns facing erosion issues, and the Associated Press recently called the town “an early adopter of planned retreat” from the ocean.
Pacifica City Council will hold its next meeting Monday June 11 at 2212 Beach Boulevard.
