Suisun Council clarifies one-way street ordinance

By From page A4 | January 08, 2014

SUISUN CITY — If you drive down the one-way street portions of Kellogg, Solano and Common streets, you can now get ticketed.

The Suisun City Council fixed a glitch in its laws Tuesday night that muddied police officers’ efforts to ticket those people who drove the streets the wrong way.

This sprang from the resolutions a couple of years ago that changed the street sections to one-way by ordinance. But enforcing the change required amending the city code to include the streets that were designated by the ordinance.

In other business, a council majority approved paying $1,000 for its membership to the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce out of city coffers. Mayor Pete Sanchez abstained while Councilwoman Lori Wilson voted no.

The city dropped out of the chamber in 2011 during fiscally tight times when the council cut back the number of memberships to organizations it paid dues to. Councilmen Mike Segala and Sam Derting then paid for the chamber membership out of their own pockets rather than see the city go unrepresented.

Council members also approved extending the city’s disposition and development agreement with Main Street West, the master developers for the city’s waterfront area. The extension is for 120 days beyond its present Feb. 19 deadline.

Suisun City staff and Main Street West asked for the extension to allow them more time to work on an amended agreement to continue Main Street West’s development projects and to get the agreement approved by the State Department of Finance.
