Alameda City Council Has Full Legal Agenda

At a special meeting this Wednesday night, Alameda City Council will review three existing suits against the City of Alameda, and one expected suit.

First up on the agenda is the East Bay Regional Park District’s lawsuit against the City of Alameda over the rezoning of federal property on McKay Avenue, near Robert Crown Memorial Beach. The City of Alameda appears ready to give the go-ahead to a developer to building housing on the site after acquiring it from the federal Government Services Administration. The parks agency wants the land to improve access to the beach. The case is RG12655685 in Alameda County Superior Court.

Next is a suit that dates back to May, for sewer work done in the area of Pacific and Buena Vista Avenues in late 2010 and early 2011. The owners and resident of a Chapin Street property saw that sewer work at that time flooded the basement of their house with raw sewage. They are suing the City of Alameda and the contractor who did the sewer work for tens of thousands of dollars of costs related to the flooding, and legal fees. That case is RG12628456 in Alameda County Superior Court.

Council will also hear an update on the wrongful death lawsuit against the City of Alameda over the death of Raymond Zack, on Memorial Day 2011.

Finally, council will conference with legal counsel regarding anticipated litigation, the details of which have not been released.
