CITY COUNCIL AGENDA ITEM NO. 4

Meeting Date: December 9, 2003

Subject/Title: Reject the claim presented on December 2, 2003 by John Tran and Ngue My Vuong

Submitted by: Karen Diaz, City Clerk/Director of Administrative Services

Approved by: John Stevenson, City Manager

RECOMMENDATION
Reject the claim submitted by Tran and Ngue My Vuong (claimants), as recommended by the City Attorney.

BACKGROUND
The Claimants state that they were involved in a serious car accident that occurred on June 2, 2003 at Walnut Boulevard and Vasco Road which resulted in the death of their son. Claimants contend that one of the causes of the accident was the negligent design, construction and maintenance of the roadway. The claim further states that the defendants, County of Contra Costa, City of Martinez and the City of Brentwood, failed to implement any safety measures, redesign and/or modify the roadway, its signing and/or speed limit despite knowledge that the roadway was dangerous. The claim seeks an unspecified dollar amount for medical and burial expenses.

The location of the accident occurred outside the city limits and jurisdictional boundaries and as a result the City Attorney recommends rejections on that basis.

FISCAL IMPACT
No fiscal impact at this time.
