Tonight is a very involved council meeting. It is full of proclamations & presentations, city council resolutions and even a back door sales tax. Below you will see the listed items we would like to highlight and a little better explanation of the meaning behind the items presented.

Presentations & Proclamations:

Presentation-EPA Superfund Job Training Institute-Council Member O’Connell

Presentation-2014 CIAA Softball Rookie of the Year Award to Jocelyn Hernandez-Council Member Baca Jr.

Introduction of 1st Class of Institute of Progress-City Administrator Story

Presentation-Fill the Boot 2014-Firefighter Ploehn

Presentation-RUSD Summer Lunch Program-Cindi Stone

 Miscellaneous Items:

D.3 below is the city establishing Semi Truck routes within the city. What we would like to know is what does the city plan to do with the dangerous way they drive in our city. From speeding, running red lights and unsafe turns putting other vehicles in danger the city need to establish a way to take control of truckers before something bad happens to a innocent community member. With the massive amount of commercial space Rialto is allowing if we don’t act not this could turn bad real quick.

D.3 Request City Council to Adopt Resolution No. 6542 Rescinding

Resolutions No. 2035, 2324, 3094, 3567, 4523, 4686, 5053 and 5355

Establishing Truck Routes, and Establishing Truck Routes in

Conformance with the 2010 General Plan.

D.13 seems like a public access to internet services in the public areas of the city, but all it’s just an exclusive power grab from Time Warner to offer WiFi to their customers alone. Yes only Time Warner customers will have access to this internet.

D.13 Request City Council to Approve a Partnership Agreement with Time

Warner Cable Company for the Public WiFi Project.

D15 Is the second reading of the ordinance requesting the City Clerk offer more detailed meeting minutes. Lets see if everyone stays in their seats and votes for or against this ordinance last meeting one councilmember left his seat until the vote was over then he just came back. Lets hope everyone goes on the record on how they feel about this effort to properly record our cities business.

 D.15 14-327 Request City Council to Adopt on second reading Ordinance No. 1542

 ORDINANCE NO. 1542

AN ORDINANCE OF THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF RIALTO,

CALIFORNIA, AMENDING SECTION 2.07.010 OF THE RIALTO MUNICIPAL

CODE REGARDING THE CITY CLERK’S DUTIES IN MAINTANING THE

MINUTES OF CITY COUNCIL PROCEEDINGS

Tab 2 is a adjustment to our waste collection fees. Not to long ago our city council made a massive mistake by giving waste management a 10 year contract where we have to give them notice 10 years in advance of canceling the contract. Now they want to charge you a tax opps I mean a fee to help replace the roads because trash trucks cause more damage to our roads than a car. So because you have to have trash services per a municipal code and now we are locked into a forever contract. Oh also your trash rates are going up too. Your only hope is that city council doesn’t approve the Rialto Road Tax

TAB2 14-203 Request City Council to Adopt Resolution No. 6546, Declaring its

Intention to Set a Public Hearing for July 8, 2014, to Consider Municipal

Solid Waste Collection, Recycling and Disposal Service Rates for Fiscal

Years 2014/2015 through 2018/2019, to Incorporate a New Incentivized

Commercial Recycling Program, and to Implement a Pavement

Maintenance Fee.
