Council Considers Teen Center

Approval of a bid to go ahead with construction of the Riverbank Teen Center is on the agenda for the next Riverbank City Council meeting that is slated for Monday, Jan. 11, starting 7 p.m. at City Hall.

The council meets regularly on the second and fourth Mondays of the month in City Hall chambers on Third Street.

The low bid of about eight proposals is for approximately $750,000, or $30,000 less than the low figure in a previous bid call, said City Manager Rich Holmer. He expects the council members to accept the offer and authorize the construction that could be complete by September or October.

Among other items, the council is due to accept the recent sidewalk improvements made on Patterson Road and Terminal Avenue and authorize work by Pacific Gas & Electric Company to move power connections at the corporation yard so the current maintenance building can be demolished.

While the new corporation yard facility is under construction, the Public Works Department will move its offices to property owned by American Laminates on Talbot Avenue.

In another agenda item, council is expected to approve purchase of the Santa Fe Street building just west of the city museum for use as an annex. The $65,000 purchase was postponed at the last council session for more information.

In a closed-door session, four department heads are due for their annual performance evaluation. The four are Economic Development and Housing Director Tim Ogden, Finance Director Marisela Hernandez, Public Works Director Dave Mellili and City Manager Rich Holmer.
