City Engineer Stevenson gave an overview of the Staff Report.
Councilmember McPoland questioned the proposed fee for each community, in terms of how it was determined. Discussions ensued regarding existing and future traffic that traveled on Vasco Road.
Vice Mayor Gomes reported that Vasco Road improvements were included in the Strategic Plan for transportation improvements within Far East County, per the SCA3 Amendment. Also, that if this would occur, it would be an identified project to be funded. He felt that the most important component was the hookup of the future Highway 239 to Vasco, through Tracy and over the I-580 corridor.
Mayor Kidd stated that Assemblyman Torlekson informed him that he had requested $10 million to be included in the State's upcoming Transportation Budget for Vasco Road improvements. Assemblyman Torlekson also said that in speaking with the Governor regarding this issue, he was told that it was not likely that he could receive the $10 million, but there was a strong possibility of receiving $5 million. Mayor Kidd noted that combined with funds from CCTA, which had committed $5 million, that this could be used for the first phase of improvements, which was the $10-12 million needed to fix the curvy section, along with doing the safety improvements. Also, per Assemblyman Torlekson, Mayor Kidd stated that with passing this resolution, the City would have an increased likelihood of receiving State funding, and that Assemblyman Torlekson would be sending Mayor Kidd a letter within the next few days addressing his proposal.
Vice Mayor Gomes felt that by passing this resolution, it would reflect Brentwoods commitment for improved traffic conditions.
The public hearing was opened.
Barbara Guise suggested that the City of Brentwood request that the County of Alameda join in this commitment, and commended the Council for supporting this issue.
Ron Nunn, 741 Sunset Road, fully supported the proposed Vasco Road fees, and felt it would benefit Brentwood as a whole.
Councilmember McPoland recommended that a letter be sent to the City of Antioch to request that they voluntarily pay the additional monies, or at least match the projected fee of Brentwood. Mayor Kidd interjected a request that a letter also be sent to each entity, as well as the cities within Eastern Alameda County and Supervisor Scott Haggerty from Alameda County.
Councilmember Petrovich supported the overall concept, but objected to Alameda County's non-participation, and therefore felt he could not support this item.
Barbara Guise stated that due to Brentwood not supporting the widening of Highway 4 in the past, that they now need to step up to the plate and support this resolution.
M/S/C/U Gomes/McPoland closing the public hearing.
M/S/C Gomes/Young passing Resolution No. 2027 adopting the Vasco Road Project Study Report dated July 23, 1999 and the TJKM Vasco Road Fee Study dated February 9, 2000, directing staff to incorporate the Vasco Road and Walnut Boulevard Infrastructure improvements into the Roadway Master Plan and the Buildout Analysis of the Roadway Development Fee, with a change that the cost of improvements to each entity be adjusted through an Engineering Study. NO: Petrovich
13. Passage of Resolution No. 2028 authorizing the City Engineer to implement a prequalification procedure for prospective bidders to construct the City's Capital Improvement Projects (CIP), and authorizing staff to tailor the contractor prequalification and appeal procedures, prequalification questionnaire and evaluation criteria for each project individually, and release the questionnaire for public response.

Councilmember McPoland agreed with concept, but expressed concerns, in terms of liability.
