CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 7 

 Meeting Date:  April 11, 2000

 Subject/Title:     Brentwood Boulevard Assessment District Undergrounding Cancellation

 Submitted by:    Engineering: J. Stevenson/B. Bornstein

 Approved by:     Jon Elam, City Manager

 RECOMMENDATION        

Passage of a Resolution approving the contract with Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) for previous work on the modification of utilities on Brentwood Boulevard and Sycamore Avenue to signalize this intersection, and approving payment to PG&E for their design of the Brentwood Boulevard Undergrounding District for an amount not to exceed $157,188.97. 

PREVIOUS ACTION

On July 14, 1987, the City Council passed Resolution No. 87-72 forming the 1987 Underground Utility District No. 1 along Highway 4 from 150 feet north of Spruce Street to 1,000 feet north of Village Drive.

On May 14, 1996, the City Council passed Resolution No. 96-65 authorizing Pacific Gas & Electric Company and Pacific Bell to design underground utilities for the Brentwood Boulevard Reconstruction Project, CIP Project No. 336-3013. 

BACKGROUND

In 1989 the City requested that PG&E install conduits, cable, transformers, primary splice boxes and secondary splice boxes at the intersection of Brentwood Boulevard and Sycamore Avenue in preparation for the signalization of this intersection.  This work was in conjunction with the overall designed project to underground the overhead utilities for the undergrounding assessment district.  Unfortunately, this assessment district was rejected by the many businesses along Brentwood Boulevard due to the high costs of these improvements.  In the course of this action, PG&E spent a great deal of time for engineering and cost estimating this project that began back in July of 1987.  The proposed improvements had been revised and updated at least five times since the onset in 1987.  Due to the lack of City funding and no set construction schedule for these improvements, PG&E requests to close this project and be paid for the partial work performed and the engineering and estimating of the job since 1987.  Hopefully in the future, alternate sources of income will become available (such as Rule 20A) for the undergrounding along Brentwood Boulevard and the City will be able to utilize PG&E engineering and design that has already been completed for the undergrounding improvements.
