City Council Meeting
December 12, 2017
The Glendale City Council approved the consent calendar, which included six items, with one unanimous vote.
Council released a request for proposals (RFP) for a new vendor for the Healthy Vending Services Program, which Council first adopted in 2016. On March 29, 2016, the City Council passed a Healthy Vending Resolution that all snack and beverage products sold in vending machines on City property serve healthy foods. The guidelines adopted by the City were supported by the Glendale Healthy Kids and Healthy Lives Parent Collaborative, and based on state healthy vending laws for K-12 schools.
City Council also approved the advertisement of bids for the Doran Street and Adjacent Streets Improvements Project, which is part of Public Works Engineering’s ongoing efforts to improve the condition of the City’s streets.
Facility Use License with St. Francis High School for Improvements to Glendale Sports Complex, Field #1, and Long Term Use of Field
Glendale City Council unanimously approved the above action item, which allows St. Francis High School to use field #1 at the Glendale Sports Complex at no charge during baseball season annually. The school will pay the approved nonprofit fee for the field for any use outside of the baseball season.
The license term will be 10 years, with an option to renew for a second ten-year term. For the full item, see the agenda report.
Design and Build of a Live Fire Modular Training Complex
Council unanimously approved for the design and build of a Live Fire Modular Training Complex. On October 18, 2016, City Council approved the Request for Proposals for the design and construction of a Live Fire Training Complex. The Live Fire Facility will replace the former burn building structure that was decommissioned in 2010. Since the dismantling of the former building, the Glendale Fire Department has been unable to conduct live fire training at the Glendale Fire Training Center.
The new Live Fire structure would be designed, permitted, and constructed by United at the existing fire training facility located at 541 Chevy Chase Drive. The design and construction is anticipated to take approximately six months. For more information, check out the staff report.
Denial of Appeal of DRB Case located at 510-512 West Doran Street
Council unanimously denied an appeal of a Design Review Board decision to approve the construction of a new home at 510-512 West Doran Street. The property will retain the existing house for historical purposes, which will be relocated on the property to make room for the new home. Full details of the case can be found online.
The next regular City Council Meeting is scheduled for December 19, 2017 at 6 p.m. at Glendale City Hall in City Council Chambers. A Housing Authority meeting will precede it at 3 p.m. More information about the topics to be discussed can be found in the links provided in this section.
