Parking meter collection is the subject of a joint meeting of the Audits and Governmental Efficiency committee and the Transportation committee on Tuesday.

Today is Monday, June 20, and park proposals, staffing for the 3-1-1 system and audits of the parking meter collection and parking citation programs are on the agendas this week at City Hall.

MONDAY: Arts, Parks, Health and Aging committee meets, as does Budget and Finance committee in a joint session with Personnel committee.

A report on plans to consolidate the city's Office of Finance and the Office of the Treasurer headlines the joint session as CF 11-0600-S40.

TUESDAY: Council is in session, as are four committee meetings.

Red light cameras are again taken up by City Council, as the body looks to delay the Police Commission's recent decision to halt the program. A pair of potential motions heads to Council as CF 11-1015.

An update on CRA's plans for Proposition 84 parks proposals heads to Council. The plans must be submitted by July 1.

If plans to cut eight positions from the city's 3-1-1 system go through, hours of operation will need to go down as well. That's the report under CF 11-0600-S96, which goes to Information Technology and Government Affairs. The Mayor's budget proposed dropping the current 10pm closing time back to 4:45pm. The line was 24x7 until this past year.

Audits of the city's parking meter collection and citation processes go to a joint meeting of the Audits and Governmental Efficiency committee and the Transportation committee as CF 11-0989 and CF 11-0837. The City Controller's recently-released audit showed a lack of oversight and tracking of the collection process.

WEDNESDAY: Council returns, as do two committee meetings.

Ilium Associates would get a third extension of its contract to market city-run transit services under CF 09-1347, which heads to Transportation committee. The six-month extension is intended to give the Department of Transportation time to analyze the two proposals submitted for a February RFP.
