The 2011 FNL program line-up will again consist of 13 weeks enter- tainment beginning June 10 and running through September 2. The popular Tommy Castro Band will kick off the season with lots of ex- citement, according to Tharrington, who says he is "striving to raise the bar by adding another layer, and this summer to promote the event to our Hispanic community". He thanked the City for eight years of partnership. Judith described her efforts to "represent Cloverdale in the most friendly and warm way possible" in her role as concessions manager. She said people told her they came to the event because of her "cool cam- paign". Ron Sigamund who makes possible the juried sculpture art dis- play that graces the plaza for the summer months and into October, pointed out that the program has brought new relationships to Clo- verdale with respect to loaned art for the community and that it has helped establish Cloverdale as an arts destination, which is included in the Economic Development Plan. The City partnership on the sculp- ture exhibit was $7,000 in 2010. Council members described the work of CAA and its programs as haying "changed the face of Clover- dale" and "inspiring". City Manag- er Nina Regor pointed out how the CAA helped forge a relationship with the Voight Family Foundation, which is now working with the City on upgrading Kleiser Park. Former Planning Commissioner David Ziegenhagen commented, "There's nothing as inspirational as being in that mass of people at FNL". Consent Calendar Resolutions appointing Coastland Engineering as engineer for the Landscape & Lighting District, and related to the recommended ap- proaches for updating city goals and priorities were approved. Mayor Gus Wolter requested that a second reading and adoption of an ordinance repealing the present chapter of the Municipal Code enti- tled "Collection, Disposal and Pro- cessing of Solid Waste, Recyclables and Compostable Materials and Re- lated Activities" be discussed sepa- rately. He wanted to make sure the ordinance does not preclude the city from negotiating with other compa- nies. Regor pointed out language that confirms same, as well as |an- to the public would be appropriate. If the CPAC performance schedule does not permit, the meeting will be held at the Senior Center. Subcommittee Reports A number of subcommittees are still to meet, but the Planning/CDA Subcommittee discussed strategies for the Economic Development Plan with respect to faqade improvement. They have reworked the wording for RV parking. MayorWolter expressed that LAFCO was less than enthusiastic about having the City submit a sphere of influence that mirrors the UGB. In a follow-up conversation with the Mayor, he explained that the County is unaccustomed to deal- ing with Exception Areas in UGB and spheres of influence and that the City has been asked not to pur- sue that at this time due to the amount of work required to review and approve it. LAFCO is the agen- cy that will approve or disapprove whether the City can run services to the Asti Exception Area. During the subcommittee discussion Regor said it was decided to go forward with the UGB consistent with what voters wanted in 2010. Mayor Wolter asked Councilmember Palla to bring up the matter with Supervisor Mike McGuire. The Public Services, which com- bines Public Works and the Police Department, was very well attend- ed. Among numerous topics dis- cussed Councilmember Russell reported that the Skate Park inter- ests prefer an Asti Road location, while the Dog Park group is looking into a property on the north end of River Park. She says the City needs to think seriously about the Social Host Ordinance that is being pro- posed. There will be an update on streetlights on the boulevard be- tween Elbridge and Clover Springs at the next meeting. She expressed concern about racecar and motorcy- cle participants in the Citrus Fair Parade. Councilmember Palla recom- mended banning fishtailing and other unsafe vehicle and motorcycle maneuvers during parade. He also asked the City Attorney whether cOsts for City time on the Social Host Ordinance could be recouped. At- toey Danly thought cost recovery wald be available in the civil realm, b notcrirninal. He said the Petalu- m'::SHO is being successfully used .t(prosecute several instances and ttb legislation is designed to work i?conjuriction with a code enforce- ment scheme and those chapters of He will look into it further guge that permits the City to ..... The City Manager wiI1 lo0k into ..... choose to engage in multiple fran- chises. The ordinance does also provide for franchise responsibility and re- quired permits/certifications, though specific indemnities and drafting of liability language is un- derway. Though exclusivity is not required, it will be unlawful for any- one to operate without a franchise agreement. Councilmember Russell wants to be sure franchise operators are employing people legally. Danly pointed out insurance to back in- demnity will be required, and that employment practices, vehicle maintenance, and use of approved disposal sites are standard topics to be covered in an agreement that fo- cuses on service levels, responsive- ness to customer complaints and a primary focus on safety and lawful operation. He says franchisees will be required to follow safeguards and tO comply with reporting re- quirements. New Business In reviewing Staff recommenda- tions for approaches to updating city goals and priorities, Coun- cilmember Palla asked whether there could be two or three goals outlined to accomplish with a plan to achieve that. All council members agreed to that and that a separate meeting, perhaps held on a Satur- day with 2-3 weeks advance notice i AN()THER FREE HDH SENIOR LIVE WELL PRE:;ENTATI()N Presented by Allan L.

SINK LAW OFFICE questions Councilmember Palla raised regarding designation of a skate park property. She will talk with LAFCO before the skate park is scheduled to go before Council. He had concerns regarding tax obliga- tions and whether the City is locked in to a skate park if plans were to change for some reason. Legislative update Counsel Eric Danly reported that a letter from Sacramento regarding the Governor's proposed sweeping budget changes was just received. It will be reviewed for answers espe- cially regarding doing away with redevelopment agencies. The City Manager reported that a Reconcilia- tion Committee is attempting to draft a bill that addresses the Senate and Assembly committee votes and suggested reforms.
