The following is a preview of the September 4 City Council meeting. You may read the full agenda here.
After more than 20 years with San Gabriel, Fire Chief Derrick Doehler has announced his retirement, which officially begins on August 31, 2018. To maintain the San Gabriel Fire Department’s current level of service, the City’s Human Resources department is proposing that a new post-retirement agreement be drafted with Chief Doehler that would keep him employed no later than February 28, 2019 while a search is underway for a new Fire Chief.
Under California laws that govern the public sector, a retiree may not be employed by the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (or CalPERS) for more than 960 hours in a fiscal year, with a salary that does not exceed a regular employee in the same capacity. During this agreement, a search for a successor must be underway.
The City’s Human Resources department recommends that the City Council approve a resolution authorizing the employment agreement with Chief Derrick Doehler and the City of San Gabriel.
Public Works requests budget increase for 2017 CDBG street improvements
Back in March 2018, the City Council approved a contract for street improvements along Broadway, Live Oak Street and San Gabriel Boulevard. The project was completed in May, and the contractor also performed additional paving and ramp replacement on Live Oak Street from California Street to Pine Street to complete the gap between the two newly paved streets.
At the time, the project budget was approved at a cost of $586,300.00 including a 10% contingency. A change order has been prepared to cover the additional costs, which total to $29.543.76.
Staff from Public Works is recommending that the City Council approve the change order.
