San Gabriel Fire Department requests feasibility study from Los Angeles County Fire

After the dissolution of the tri-city fire agreement with San Marino and South Pasadena, a study was commissioned to evaluate the San Gabriel Fire Department and the services it provides to the community compared to neighboring cities. As part of the presentation, the option of contracting with Los Angeles County was explored as a way to improve fire services to the City.

To carry out the study’s proposals, staff is recommending that a feasibility study be conducted to explore the possibility of contracting fire service to Los Angeles County Fire.

Public Works requests agreement with LA County Public Works for bridge maintenance 

To help extend the service life of bridges across the country, the Highway Bridge/Bridge Preventive Maintenance Program (BPMP) provides federal funding to help extend the service life of bridges to prevent costlier rehabilitation in the future. Under an agreement with Caltrans, LA County Public Works currently inspects all but one of the City’s 17 bridges. These inspections are conducted every two years according to National Bridge Inspection Standards.

At the moment, the following bridges require inspections:

  • Las Tunas Drive over the Rubio Wash
  • Broadway over the Rubio Wash
  • Ramona Street over the Alhambra Wash
  • Mission Road over the Alhambra Wash

The scope of work includes patching damaged concrete and asphalt and sealing bridge deck surfaces, with work eligible for partial funding under the federal BPMP. Since LA County Public Works can apply these projects under a larger countywide repair project, they’ll be able to apply cost efficiencies that the City may otherwise not be able to offer.

Under this proposed agreement, LA Public Works would perform preliminary engineering and administer the construction contract, with an estimated cost of $196,000. BPMP is estimated to cover $157,000, with the City’s final out-of-pocket cost is estimated to be $39,000.

The City Council is recommended to approve the contract with LA County Public Works to conduct preventative maintenance on four City bridges.
