Full Agenda for Alameda City Council Closed Session Tonight

Alameda City Council has a full plate for its closed session tonight. City Council and the City’s Public Utilities Board will conference with legal counsel over outstanding lawsuits that date prior to the sale of Alameda Power & Telcom’s cable division to Comcast, and City Council will conference with the Interim City Manager on labor negotiations between the City of Alameda and several labor groups.

City Council and the Public Utilities Board, which oversees Alameda Municipal Power (once called “Alameda Power & Telecom”) will discuss the Vectren Communication Services and Nuveen Municipal High Income Opportunity fund lawsuits. In 2008, the City of Alameda preemptively sued the investment fund as the sale of the utilities telecom division did not raise enough funds to pay back bonds sold to Nuveen. Vectren Communication Services was a contractor that the utility used to build out its cable TV and Internet network.

On the labor front, Council will discuss negotiations with several employee bargaining organizations: Alameda City Employees Association; Executive Management Employees; Fire Management Association; International Association of Firefighters; International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers; Management and Confidential Employees Association; Police Management Association; Police Officers Association; Police Officers Association (Non Sworn)

An early version of the agenda for tonight’s meeting included an item for a claim against the City of Alameda by Councilmember Lena Tam, who, earlier this year, defended herself against allegations of official misconduct; the item was removed in the current revision of the agenda.

The meeting starts at 5:00 p.m. at Alameda City Hall. Members of the public can address the City Council and Public Utilities Board on agenda items before the bodies adjourn to closed session.
