CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO.
Meeting Date: April 9, 2002
Subject/Title: Highway 4 Bypass Law Enforcement Services Contract
Submitted by: John Stevenson, City Manager/Mike Davies, Police Chief
Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager
Approve a Resolution authorizing the City Manager to approve a Contract with the Highway 4 Bypass Authority for Law Enforcement Services.
On January 8, 2002 the City Council approved Resolution No. 2366 increasing the Bypass Fees to fund the accelerated and expanded Highway 4 Bypass Project.
The California State Highway Patrol will ultimately police this facility, but that will only happen after full acceptance by the State, which will be after completion of Segments 1 and 3. Until that time, the City will need to enforce vehicle code and public safety issues since it is within the City limits of Brentwood. The Police Chief and City Manager negotiated the attached Contract that allows for re-evaluation of the reimbursement amount after the first year in order to assure that the City is appropriately compensated for services associated with this roadway.
None. It is the intent of the Contract for the City to be fully reimbursed for its services.
