Suisun council to hear proposed fare hikes

By From page A3 | February 02, 2014

SUISUN CITY — City Council members will hear Tuesday about the proposed new fare structure for Fairfield and Suisun Transit.

Local fares would go up 25 cents to $1.75. The cost of taking a bus to the El Cerrito del Norte Bay Area Rapid Transit station would be raised 75 cents to $6.50.

It’s an information-only item. The Fairfield City Council will have the final say in the matter. Fare increases would go into effect July 1, if approved.

Also on the agenda are:

  • Consider resolutions authorizing the city manager to enter into a contract with Gates & Associates for the conceptual design of the second phase of the Lawler Ranch Park project; execute an agreement with Solano Transportation Authority to fund an update of the Downtown Waterfront Specific Plan; submit a grant application for the Sustainable Communities Planning Grant Incentives Program.
  • Discuss fireworks sales funding arrangements between nonprofit sellers and the wholesaler.
  • Discuss the logistics and format of a budget workshop as part of the upcoming budget cycle.

The council will also be asked to approve a priority list of community events, with associated costs, that will be submitted to the Suisun City Community Services Foundation for potential funding.

The foundation anticipates having probable funding available for Christmas on the Waterfront, Saturday Night Movies and Sunday Jazz Series, according to the council agenda. It’s also proposing two additional movies and jazz productions before the city’s July 4 event, and adding back the fireworks show to the Christmas on the Waterfront.

A special meeting, with a closed session to discuss anticipated litigation, starts at 6 p.m. The regular meeting follows at 7 p.m. Both are in the city council chambers, 701 Civic Center Blvd.

The complete agenda can be found at www.suisun.com.

    Agenda 21 Alert!! The "Sustainable Communities Planning Grant" is the pay-off your local "leaders" will receive for selling out your town to regional non-governmental organizations. Your leaders have traded away the righteous city authority of eminent domain, for example, for a few dollars in grant money. They call him "Pol Pot Pete" because he treats his people so bad... it's just that most of the people don't know how bad it is. (He was first called "Pol Pot Pete" during a council meeting where he stood firm in his commitment to add poison to the drinking water... even though study after study proves fluoride is ruinous to human health.)
