Alameda City Council is expected tonight to give the City Manager approval to negotiate an agreement with the Water Emergency Transportation Authority (WETA) that would see a replacement seal haul-out constructed as part of a new ferry maintenance and operations center at Alameda Point.

Alameda resident Richard Bangert has been fighting on behalf of the seals, which are using a dilapidated dock on the site as a haul-out.

The memorandum of understanding between the City of Alameda and WETA would see WETA set aside $100,000 in a holding fund for the design and construction of the haul-out. The City of Alameda and WETA would jointly determine a new site for the haul-out, but WETA would the effort in getting it built, and would maintain it going forward.

WETA is expected to start construction before August of next year; in the event the agency doesn’t, the City of Alameda would use the funds in the holding account to take the project over.

The maintenance and operations center is expected to bring 100 jobs to Alameda and provide $2.5 million in public infrastructure.
