City Council to review San Gabriel Plaza mixed-use project

This is a preview of the April 2 City Council meeting agenda, which you may read in full here.

City Council to review San Gabriel Plaza Mixed-Use Project

The City Council will review a mixed-use project with 163 residential condominium units and 34,835 square feet of retail/restaurant on an approximately 3.66-acre site located at 220 South San Gabriel Boulevard.

Previously, the Planning Commission considered the proposed project and recommended the adoption of the environmental documentation and the approval of the project by a vote of 4-0. Should the project be approved by the City Council, the project will then be evaluated by the Design Review Commission. 

City Council to review digital copy machine lease proposal for SGPD

At the moment, the San Gabriel Police Department has been using two printing machines – one primary, and one backup – for the last five years. Due to the department’s 24/7 nature and the age of the machines, both printers have required additional service calls due to aging parts.

The department currently has a monthly cost of $1,600 for print services, ranging up to approximately $3,000. With new machines, the monthly costs would decrease to $725 with a range up to $1,500. The SGPD is proposing a new five-year lease for printing services, which would provide a monthly cost savings of approximately $875.

Canon’s pricing, terms and conditions were awarded a competitive bid contract through the National Intergovernmental Procurement Agency. Staff from the SGPD are recommending that the City Council waive the formal competitive bidding process and authorize the Chief of Police to utilize a cooperative discount pricing for a new five-year lease. SGPD staff is also recommending that the City Council enter into a new lease of $725 per month within a new five-year agreement, rather than extending the existing printing machine leases.

Funds would come from the department’s contractual expenditure account #121-751-00-22-000 under copier and maintenance, which is set at $19,500. The cost would include delivery, installation, training, maintenance, service, labor and parts.

In addition, the following items will be reviewed:
