General Obligation Bond (Measure T, Public Safety and Infrastructure Bond).


As recommended by the Rules and Open Government Committee on November 14, 2018:

Direct the City Manager to:

1. Revise Proposed General Obligation Bond Project Categories (included as Attachment A to the City Manager’s September 11, 2018 Memorandum) to read as follows:

• Preserve “Build Fire Station 37” as a priority project

• Supplant “Rebuild/relocate or build two Fire Stations, including property acquisition” with:

- “Build at least two new fire stations, including property acquisition, or conversion of existing City land,” and

- “Rebuild/ relocate fire stations 8 and 23, including property acquisition or conversion of existing City land.”

• Supplant “Public Safety Headquarters Infrastructure Needs” with “Police Headquarters Infrastructure Needs”


2. Pursuant to the 2015 SJFD Strategic Business Plan, accelerate the development of a Facilities Master Plan that addresses fire station location, along with staffing and budget impacts, within 12 months (Goal #2, 9.4 Infrastructure and Support). The Facilities Master Plan should include specific timelines for the construction and rehabilitation of each of the new and rehabilitated fire stations called for under Measure T.


3. Within 60 days of the certification of the election results, return to Council with:


i. A timeline for the implementation and funding of staffing/operations of Fire Station 37, with commencement of construction within 18 months.


ii. Timeline of construction of the next new fire station, with the purchase of land for the next new fire station within 24 months, and design and construction thereafter.
