VI.      OLD BUSINESS

            A.  Consider authorizing the Mayor to execute a Lease Modification and Extension Agreement with Silverspot Nursery School 

                  (The current lease expires on May 31, 2012.  The lease waives the $310 a month with the understanding that an equivalent amount is expended by the Tenant in a manner which would provide a direct benefit to the community.  Currently, this is for the purpose of a Tuition Assistance Program.)

VII .    NEW BUSINESS

            A.  Consider approval of the playground’s design, Mothers of Brisbane’s fundraising program, funding sources of the Community Park Playground Replacement Project, and direct staff to put site preparation out to bid

                  (At their June 20, 2011 meeting, the City Council was presented with three different projects within the Community, whose costs totaled more than the amount of funding available.  It was suggested that the priority project be the replacement of the current play equipment in the Community Park.  The Parks and Recreation Commission has been working on a playground design and the Council will consider approval of that design at this meeting and give further direction regarding funding and site preparation.)

            B.  Consider approving the refunding plan of the 2002 Utility Bonds

                  (In September, 2002 revenue bonds were issued to finance water and sewer system improvements such as the Valley Drive Lift Station, the Lake Street Booster Pump and the new Glen Park Tank.  Currently there is a balance of $3,545.000 with interest rates from 4% to 5% payable through September 1, 2031.  By issuing refunding bonds of $3,655,000 at 4% annually until March 2032, the Utility Fund is estimated to save $12,387 each year for a total of $247,743.)

            C.  Consider authorizing the City Manager to execute an agreement with ICF International to perform California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) training for the community and city boards and commissions

                  (Approval of this item would provide city boards, commissions, and the public with training regarding the CEQA and environmental impacts reports so all parties can effectively participate in the review of the forthcoming Baylands draft environmental impact report.)

            D.  Consider authorizing the Mayor to execute a Confirmation of Loan Agreement concerning an Enforceable Obligation of the Redevelopment Agency of the City of Brisbane

                  (The purpose of the loan agreement is to preserve a record of the existing indebtedness owed by the Brisbane Redevelopment Agency to the City of Brisbane for funds advanced by the City to facilitate completion of the 2001 refinancing of the Marina bonds.)
