Check out item 8 from monday's council meeting
"8. Approve and Authorize the City Manager to Execute Contract Amendment No. 1 to Contract No. C10135025 in the Amount of $266,647 with Alta Planning + Design for Preliminary Design and Environmental Assessment Services for the Pedestrian & Bicycle Overpass at Highway 101 (PE-11011) and Feasibility Study of Adobe Creek Reach Trail Project Leading to the Overpass for a Total Contract Amount Not to Exceed $338,929. "
Looks like, despite our financial problems, we are committing $300K+ for a study and millions afterwards for the bridge. Where will the money come from--not an issue for the council.
This is just another thing that the city cannot live without.
