City Council to Consider Resolution Making Council Chambers a Site for Hybrid Meetings

Published on Monday, February 6, 2023 | 5:00 am

As part of Monday’s consent calendar, the City Council will consider adopting a resolution that would essentially make council chambers the site of hybrid meetings.

Under the resolution, all meetings of the City Council, its Subcommittees and the planning, design, community police oversight Commissions that take place in the City Council chambers would become hybrid meetings.

It would cost about $300,000 per year to conduct the hybrid meetings at the site. 

When the City Council considered returning to in-person meetings late last year, several council members expressed a desire to continue under a hybrid model that would allow people to continue to comment remotely. 

Here are the other items on Monday’s consent calendar.

  • A $204,525 contract to Sloan Vazquez McAfee for compliance verification review of commercial waste haulers. The City has been hiring consulting firms to conduct compliance reviews of franchise commercial haulers since 1999. These reviews ensure franchise commercial haulers’ compliance with the non-exclusive solid waste franchise agreement, administrative rules and regulations, and all federal, state or local laws and regulations applicable to the operation of the franchise system.
  • Adopt a resolution to approve Final Parcel Map No. 083256 for the subdivision of three City-owned existing parcels into two parcels. The subject subdivision is located at 685 E. Union St. on the north side of Union Street between Oak Knoll Avenue and El Molino Avenue. Two of the parcels shared an address of 701 E. Union St., the site of the demolished Banner Bank Building, purchased by the City for creation of open space. The third parcel was the City-owned surface parking lot located at 100 N. El Molino Ave. Two lots would be created as a result of the subdivision of the existing three lots. 
  • A $169,944 contract with Golden Sun Enterprise for Jefferson School Pickleball courts project. Currently in Pasadena, there are ten pickleball courts: four at Allendate Park, four (two dedicated and two joint-use with tennis) at McKinley School and two joint-use (with basketball) at McDonald Park. Two additional courts are scheduled to be constructed at Vina Vieja in FY 2024. In an effort to increase the number of pickleball courts, staff explored other potential locations throughout the City. Jefferson Elementary School, located at 1500 East Villa Street, was identified for the addition of two temporary pickleball courts. The City is leasing the Jefferson School site from Pasadena Unified School District through November 30, 2027 for the purpose of hosting Library, Police and Fire Departments programs. The site can also accommodate two temporary pickleball courts that can be used by the public throughout the duration of the City’s lease.
  • A resolution establishing four new classifications and salaries and updating salaries of five existing classifications, including deputy city manager, business systems analyst, film program coordinator, film coordinator, power resource planning manager, power resource planner I, power distribution supervisor-electrical test and construction.
  • Resolution of intention to renew the Pasadena Tourism Business Improvement District. The PTBID is a benefit assessment district proposed to continue a revenue source to help fund marketing and sales promotion efforts for Pasadena lodging businesses. The renewed PTBID includes all lodging businesses, existing and in the future, located within the boundaries of the City of Pasadena. The PCOC and Lodging business owners decided to pursue renewal of the PTBID in order to continue a revenue source devoted to marketing Pasadena as a tourist, meeting and event destination. If renewed, the PTBID would generate approximately $5,250,000 in its initial year for promotion of travel and tourism specific to Pasadena and continue to fund the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau and to support the sales and marketing efforts of the Rose Bowl Stadium.
