of Emergency Communication Equipment for Police Vehicles in an Amount Not to Exceed 58,288.38

Recommendation
Tagged Passions:equipment, public safety, emergency, communications, and Communications

Adopt a resolution authorizing the City Manager to dispense with formal bid procedures under East Palo Alto Municipal Code Section 2.84.070(D) and accept the proposal from Telepath Communications and Broadcast Microwave Services/Data 911 to install emergency communication equipment for two (2) 2020 Ford Explorer police utility vehicles for the police department in an amount not to exceed 58,288.38

Alignment with City Council Strategic Plan

This recommendation is primarily aligned with: Priority 1: Enhance Public Safety/ Emergency Preparedness Priority 2: Increase Organizational Effectiveness and Efficiency Background On December 6, 2005, the City Council, via Resolution No. 2532A, adopted the Vehicle Fleet and Replacement Guidelines. These guidelines outline the standards by which the City will replace vehicles. According to the guidelines, patrol vehicles shall be replaced at five years or 100,000 miles. This policy ensures City vehicles remain operable with reasonable maintenance, and that they are safe and effective for police service. City Council allocated funding in the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 budget for annual vehicle/equipment replacement. These vehicles will allow the Department to continue with safe effective and efficient management of its police vehicle fleet.

Analysis Finding an authorized police emergency communication installer who can provide proper emergency communications equipment, computers and camera hardware for our police vehicles has become increasingly difficult. Although several vendors were contacted, many of them cannot supply radio/computers installations. It should be noted that two other Wireless companies were non-responsive to our bid request. Therefore, Telepath Communications is the genuine lowest responsible vendor. See the tables below. Vendor: Emergency lights and safety equipment

(2) Patrol/SUV Vehicles Total Telepath Communications: Includes Equipment, Radio s and all installations of BMS/Data911 Computers/Cameras 33,523.52 33,523.52 Vendor: Computers/Cameras (2) Patrol/SUV Total BMS/Data911-Computers/Cameras 24,764.86 24,764.86

Tagged Passions:rfp, RFP, equipment, radio, public safety, emergency, communications, computers, Communications, wireless, and Wireless

Given these special circumstances, the City Manager is recommending dispensing with formal bid procedures under East Palo Alto Municipal Code Section 2.84.070 (D) which states such procedures may be dispensed, When other special circumstances require, and the City Manager recommends disregarding bid procedures, and City Council approval is obtained to disregard bid procedures and which expressly authorizes negotiations with one or more firms, persons, corporations, partnerships and/or associates for entities. In sum, staff is recommending accepting the following bids: 1) Telepath Communications be the selected responsible bidder to provide the installation of emergency communication and equipment for all police vehicles; and, 2) BMS/ Data911 be selected as a separate vendor for its computers/cameras equipment for police patrol vehicles, since BMS/ Data911 manufactures the specialized equipment for police use. Selecting these vendors would meet the needs of our Police Department, save time and cost, and would give us efficiency and consistency in standardizing equipment and service. The aggregate proposal from Telepath Communication and BMS/ Data911 for two (2) 2020 Ford utility vehicles for the Police Department total 58,288.38

Fiscal Impact The 58,288.38 cost of the emergency safety equipment and installation will be charged to the Equipment Replacement Reserve Fund ( 012). Adequate budget appropriation and funds are available to for the purchase in the FY 2019-2020 budget.

Background

The purpose of this report is to provide information about Beverage Container Recycling City/County Payment Program funds (Beverage Container Funds) and to recommend use of these funds to enter into contract with Grassroots Ecology to conduct mandatory compliance cleanup events along the Runnymede drainage system and throughout Cooley Landing Park. CalRecycle The City of East Palo Alto is eligible to receive payments through CalRecycle for programs designed to return funding to communities throughout the state for various targeted purposes, which include (but are not limited to): Used Oil Payment Program returns user-based fees back to communities to conduct programs that provide outreach about proper disposal of used oil; and,

Beverage Container Recycling City/County Payment Program returns user-based fees for beverage containers back to communities for programs that encourage proper disposal of beverage containers and recycling.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:program and recycling

Since FY 2014-2015, CalRecycle has required a Resolution from the City Council to authorize a specific entity to apply and access any funding payments.

On July 3, 2018, the City Council, through Resolution No. 4985, authorized the San Mateo County Environmental Health Services (EHS) Used Motor Oil and Filter Recycling Program to apply for and accept all available Used Motor Oil and Filter Recycling Program funds on behalf of the City of East Palo Alto. This Resolution has a five (5) year timeline before an updated Resolution is required, unless the City Council determines alternative Used Oil Payment Program uses are warranted. The Beverage Container Recycling City/County Payment Program (Beverage Container Fund) is a pool of money available to public agencies in California for the purpose of returning a fair share of beverage container redemption money, collected through the redemption of beverage containers. Collectively, beverage containers redeemed by East Palo Alto residents and businesses returns to the City through the Beverage Container Fund. Funding is distributed to local programs that support furthering beverage container collection, thus reducing the incidence of this material entering the landfill or other undesirable locations. The City is eligible to access between 6,500 and 9,000 annually for the Beverage Container Fund. The fund fluctuates annually based on the quantity of beverage containers redeemed throughout the year. East Palo Alto has not applied for this payment since the updated requirement for a City Council Resolution for an authorized signatory. This

signatory is designated to apply and execute the payment for local programs, along with programming the funds for beverage container management projects.

State and Federal Mandates The City of East Palo Alto is permitted to discharge stormwater into the Waters of the State, dependent on compliance with the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit, regionally permitted through the San Francisco Bay Regional Water Quality Control Board (Water Board) via the Municipal Regional Permit (MRP), which affects all jurisdictions within the San Francisco Bay Area. MRP 2.0 Permit Provision C.10.a.i required permittees to achieve a seventy percent (70 ) trash load reduction from the 2009 baseline by July 1, 2017. Additionally, the provision requires permittees to achieve an eighty (80) percent trash load reduction by July 1, 2019. All agencies are also required to identify pollution potential and reduce adverse impacts to local waterways through on-land cleanup efforts.

Tagged Passions:funding, utility, Utility, program, water, compliance, and stormwater

In 2019, as part of the rescinding of the Cease and Desist Order for full trash compliance, the City has been tasked with maintaining the Runnymede Drainage system, an open-air stormwater conveyance system on the eastern border of the City. This system provides the City capacity to discharge stormwater from sixty-seven percent (67 ) of the community. This system is susceptible to collecting litter that is wind-blown or distributed by local wildlife. Such debris, which flows through the City s stormwater system, must be cleaned to no visible impact standards at least twice a year.

Cooley Landing Park, which was upgraded in 2019, has been identified as an area where people congregate and leave litter that makes way into the surrounding parking lot and parkland. Cooley Landing Park is a San Francisco Bay shoreline park that is surrounded by Bay water and is one of the areas within East Palo Alto which is at highest risk for pollution. As such, it requires regular organized litter abatement efforts. Due to its open boundaries and the proximity to the waterway, the frequency of this litter abatement effort should be continuous and ongoing to prevent poor water quality from impacting the San Francisco Bay waters.

Citywide Cleanup of Litter of Beverage Containers

The Beverage Container Fund offers a significant opportunity for the City, particularly if leveraged through existing programs. Grassroots Ecology has been conducting on-land cleanups through their Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), providing environmental stewardship activities for the City. Roughly sixty-seven percent (67 ) of the material collected from local cleanups in East Palo Alto is comprised of single use take-out products which include redeemable beverage containers, much of which is recyclable. However, the City is lacking a volunteer-led cleanup program dedicated to hosting ongoing cleanup activities at the Runnymede drainage system or Cooley Landing.

Grassroots Ecology

Since April 20, 2016, Grassroots Ecology, under the former subsidiary of Acterra, has a MOU with the City of East Palo Alto detailing a unique relationship in which the community is provided with community ecological stewardship opportunities at Cooley Landing Park. Utilizing the bayside park as a means of connecting the community to on-land litter cleanups, planting native plants, removing non-native plants, and other environmental education efforts, Grassroots Ecology has assisted volunteers with the removal of solid waste including beverage containers, since prior to the MOU, with cleanup events happening monthly, on average. The City has not been a fiscal sponsor for programs provided through this MOU.

Tagged Passions:utility, solid waste, Utility, events, program, environment, plant, parks, education, and volunteer

Outside of the scope of the MOU, on May 15, 2018, the City Council authorized the City Manager to enter into contract with Grassroots Ecology to provide vegetation for the Cooley Landing Park Project Phases 4 and 5 Project. On March 5, 2019, the City Council authorized a First Amendment with Grassroots Ecology to plant the vegetation they had grown as part of Phases 4 and 5 and to provide continued maintenance of this vegetation over the next three (3) years.

Volunteers for Grassroots Ecology include a broad array of participants including local school children, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, residents, and corporate volunteers seeking opportunities to provide community service. Analysis
Tagged Passions:council, contract, plant, parks, administrator, manager, education, and volunteer

The City is expanding the services available to the community members, but also continues to balance limited staffing resources, and relies on non-profit partners to provide supportive services related to organizing volunteer efforts for programs related to ecological stewardship, tree plantings and other native plantings. The partnership with Grassroots Ecology has enabled the City to continuously benefit from litter abatement at Cooley Landing Park to prevent discharge into the San Francisco Bay. Grassroots Ecology has a broad volunteer base, which continuously expands through their ongoing outreach efforts, and a frequency of cleanup efforts which supports the required action from the Water Board.

Use of the Beverage Container Funds to support Grassroots Ecology s cleanup efforts provides a mix of benefits to the community.

If authorized by the City Council, the City Manager, or designee, will prepare a five (5) year contract with Grassroots Ecology delineating a specified number of cleanup events at Cooley Landing Park and a minimum of two (2) cleanups per year, thus maintaining no visual impact for compliance with the Water Board s request the Runnymede Drainage system between Runnymede Street and the O Connor Pump Station. Grassroots Ecology will be required and provide documentation as to the litter abatement and recyclable beverage container pick-up, when possible, for recovery through the recycling programs offered through the City s Franchise Hauler Contractor, Recology. This information will be provided

to CalRecycle through an annual summary of activities as part of the requirements of the funding opportunity.

Tagged Passions:funding

The City recommends assigning the City Manager as authorized designee for these funds to be used for ongoing litter abatement efforts as an indefinite assignment, until the City Council authorizes an alternative use for these funds. The recommended contract term with Grassroots Ecology is a five (5) year period, which will provide some fiscal stability for organizational litter abatement event planning while also providing the City with mandatory data collection of cleanup efforts to be reported to the Water Board through the City s annual report for NPDES stormwater compliance.

Fiscal Impact Upon authorization to designate Grassroots Ecology as the recipient of the City s CalRecycle Beverage Container Funds, staff will establish a five (5) year contract and annually direct these funds to Grassroots Ecology to provide ecological stewardship events for the removal of litter from designated parkways and waterways in East Palo Alto. The Notice of Funding Availability for each jurisdiction is typically released in January of each year, with Award Announcement subsequently provided April of that year. The actions described in this memorandum do not have a Fiscal Impact on the City s General Fund since the funds will be reimbursable. Staff is recommending a budget appropriation (revenue and expenditure) of 9,000 for FY 2019-20 in Fund F215. Staff recommends that the General Fund supplement any difference between the contract work and the actual grant award, but at no time will ever exceed 9,000 per year. Environmental The action being considered does not constitute a Project within the meaning of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), pursuant to CEQA Guideline section 15378 (b)(5), in that it is a government administrative activity that will not result in direct or indirect changes in the environment.

supporting East Palo Alto s interests in regional efforts like the SFJPA Flood Reduction project, BAWSCA and groundwater issues, and regional sea level rise efforts.

The Engineering Division manages a list of qualified consultants. On October 4, 2016 the City Council authorized the Planning, Building and Engineering Divisions to release RFP/RFQ for technical services for on-call services to assist the divisions on the four planning projects listed above, services to assist CIP Projects, among others. On May 15, 2017, the City Council adopted a resolution approving the qualified list of consulting firms for on-call Engineering Services. On February 6, 2018, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 4937 approving a contract with Freyer Laureta (F L) in the amount of 120,000 for staff augmentation services. On July 3, 2018, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 4990 approving Amendment 1 with Freyer Laureta for 50,000 for the continuation of staff augmentation services. Analysis The Public Works Department has a number of upcoming projects that may require additional engineering resources for tasks such as, but not limited to, review and project management. These upcoming projects include water infrastructure rehabilitation and upgrades. Many of the upcoming water projects are meant to deliver the additional water purchased from SFPUC to the City s drinking water system. These projects have large effects on the residents and upcoming developments. Staff recommends that 80,000 be added to the Freyer Laureta contract to ensure ample engineering services, as well as a contract extension to December 31, 2020. Fiscal Impact The action described in this memorandum requires additional appropriation in fund F511 of 80,000. Adequate reserves are available in the Water Capital Fund F511.

Tagged Passions:donation, Donation, administrator, and manager

Alignment with City Council Strategic Plan

This recommendation is primarily aligned with: Priority 2: Enhance Economic Vitality Priority 3: Increase Organizational Effectiveness and Efficiency Priority 6: Create a Healthy and Safe Community Background The chairs in the Council Chambers are frequently used by City Council, the Planning Commission, Public Works and Transportation, the Rent Stabilization Board, and the Senior Advisory Committee. Due to high usage, the chairs have deteriorated, and many have become non-functional. All chairs in the Council Chambers should be replaced to maintain functionality and a condition that is appropriate for the City Council Chambers. Analysis Study.com is a business located in Mountain View, specializing in the provision of online educational resources and test preparation materials. After ordering new chairs for their offices, Study.com offered to donate the replaced chairs, rather than disposing of them. These chairs are clean, ergonomic, functional, and still in good condition. As such, the acceptance of these donated chairs is desired and would greatly benefit the City. Acceptance of this donation creates an opportunity for the City to enhance the City Council Chambers with functional chairs that are stable and in good condition. 52

This recommendation is primarily aligned with: Priority 2: Enhance Economic Vitality Priority 3: Increase Organizational Effectiveness and Efficiency Priority 6: Create a Healthy and Safe Community Background Jack Farrell Park is home to the City s only outdoor basketball court. The surface of the basketball court has deteriorated due to time and high use, resulting in faded striping and unevenness that present safety challenges for the community to enjoy this popular amenity. Analysis A private citizen, Mr. Peter Pau, visited and offered to facilitate the painting and resurfacing of Jack Farrell Park basketball court as a public gift to the City. Painting and resurfacing the basketball court would provide a significant community benefit, thus improving park activation and reaffirming the City s commitment to youth recreation.

Approve a resolution authorizing the City Manager to execute an extension to the Retainer Agreement with Ken Brown Strategic Consulting, in a form approved by the City Attorney, for an amount not-to-exceed 115,000 for the period of July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.

Alignment with City Council Strategic Plan

This recommendation is primarily aligned with: Priority 1: Enhance Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness Priority 2: Enhance Economic Vitality Priority 3: Increase Organizational Effectiveness and Efficiency Priority 4: Improve Public Facilities and Infrastructure Priority 5: Improve Communication and Enhance Community Engagement Priority 6: Create a Healthy and Safe Community Background The City has contracted the for government affairs consulting services with Mr. Ken Brown while he was working at various firms, including Spiegel and McDiarmid and the Ferguson Group. Since November 2011, Mr. Brown started his own firm, Ken Brown Strategic Consulting. The last retainer agreement with KBSC is for the last fiscal year period ending June 30, 2020. The services of KBSC include the services of the Sacramento firm Nossaman LLP, who provides staffing and expert support in government affairs consulting activities at the State level. 59 Analysis The team approach of KBSC s and Nossaman LLP has provided support and needed expertise to staff to advocate in the City s behalf in an effective manner. Examples of successful support mentioned in the draft Retainer Agreement here attached include: Working with East Palo Alto to secure a 4.4 million grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) to complete the reconstruction of Bay Road, including the stormwater infrastructure components of the project. This work included setting up a site visit from the EDA field representative for Northern California and organizing a meeting for Mayor Abrica with the Acting Director and Western Regional Director of EDA in Washington, DC. KBSC has also worked closely with the City in preparing the EDA grant application, including drafting several sections of the grant and reviewing and editing the remaining sections. KBSC has also shepherded the grant through the extensive EDA application process to ensure that all of the documents were submitted and all of the Agency s questions were answered. On September 4, EDA participated in a press event in East Palo Alto to announce the grant. KBSC continues to work with the City and EDA to finalize the details of the grant award so the City can receive the funds and begin project construction this fall.

Mr. Brown s 115,000 not-to-exceed retainer amount includes the modest increase of 500 per month from the previous year and is based on this past year s success and the fact that the contract has not been increased for nearly a decade. Furthermore, during these years, KBSC expanded the level of services by adding Jennifer Capitolo and Ashley Setoudeh of Nossaman LLP to the team to provide the City legislative support at the State level. Given the familiarity of both Mr. Brown and Nossaman with East Palo Alto related issues, the offer of keeping the contract at the same funding level with the expanded ongoing services is very reasonable.

Staff has found the KBSC-Nossaman team to be very responsive to staff inquiries and very effective in advocating and advancing the City s interest. Currently KBSC-Nossaman are helping us prepare an approximately 8million application to the Economic Development Administration for Bay Road. Thus, KBSC-Nossaman is very familiar with the City s needs and proactively alert us of grant opportunities. 61 With a new administration in Washington DC it is important to build new relationships with appointed officials. Given the experience and proven record of KBSC, staff is recommending continuing the contract for the next fiscal year. Fiscal Impact The cost of this contract is 8,750 per month for a total of 105,000 a year, plus reasonable expenses of up to 11,000 for a total amount not to exceed of 115,000. This amount was included in the Fiscal Year 19-20 General Fund budget. Public Notice The public was provided notice of this agenda item by posting the City Council agenda on the City s official bulletin board outside City Hall and making the agenda and report available at the City s website and at the San Mateo Co. Library located at 2415 University. Environmental This award of this contract is exempt from the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act ( CEQA ) pursuant to CEQA Guidelines, as it is not a project as it has no potential to result in a direct or reasonable foreseeable indirect physical change to the environment.

42: A DIGITAL REVOLUTION

Enjoyment and passion have to be the seeds of creativity.

Xavier Niel, Co-Founder and Chairman of 42

When French telecommunications innovator Xavier Niel co-founded 42 in Paris in 2013, he shared a vision of creating a coder training facility like no other previously conceived. As he had envisioned creating a model institution of higher learning that could provide a hands-on, technical education within a collaborative, professional setting, he sought to form a school with a unique pedagogy. After having established 42 in Paris, Xavier extended the reach of his philanthropic endeavor with the opening of 42 Silicon Valley in 2016. In May of 2017, Niel opened the world s largest digital incubator, Station F , a 350,000 square foot powerhouse in the heart of Paris.

Fans of the science fiction novel will recognize the significance of 42 from The Hitchhiker s Guide to the Galaxy, where it is the Answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything. Wanting to give students the ability to navigate their own ultimate questions through learning how to code was the inspiration behind 42 Paris and 42 Silicon Valley.

is an innovative, higher education coding school with an established campus in Paris and a newer campus in Silicon Valley. Funded by French businessman Xavier Niel, 42 turns the traditional educational model upside down and provides an industry-leading college-level education for free with no teachers, classes or books. We also boast an open admissions process that is entirely merit-based. We embody the American dream by offering top quality education and the opportunity for social mobility.

42 Silicon Valley s mission is to offer people a chance to succeed in the field of programming. Future jobs in the United States are based on a knowledge-based economy, and according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics job outlook from 2016 to 2026, the demand for programming skills will increase 24 in the next 10 years. However, high quality computer programming education in the US is expensive and restricted to a single model or system of learning. Since it was founded in 2016, 42 Silicon Valley s goal is to train 10,000 people in computer programming over the next 10 years.

THE 42 EDUCATION

Peer-learning at 42 primarily focuses on promoting passionate student engagement. Peer instruction adds value in its ability to encourage critical thinking, problem-solving and innovation. 42 s collaborative dynamic of a healthy and abundant exchange of ideas comes from students working together to confront and troubleshoot challenging situations without any prior knowledge. This type of teamwork naturally leads to forming strong bonds between students that helps them build a network that can assist them later on in their careers not to mention the personal enrichment from making a new community of friends.

offers a rigorous, industry-leading education modeled after a professional work environment. When you don t have teachers or professors, students are the ones in charge of their own success and that of their peers. We believe that fostering students ability to think critically, enhance their ability to problem-solve, and create through hands-on projects is not only more effective for learning but also more fun. In the end, this creates a community of lifelong learners and contributes to helping students evolve into well-rounded software engineers. Students not only learn advanced programming skills, but also develop valuable interpersonal skills and an ability to communicate with people at different levels of understanding. Furthermore, our peer-based learning model is ever changing to meet the current and future needs of the tech world, meaning students develop a critical long-term foundation but also real-time marketplace skills.
