This utility relocation phase of the Library project started <br />earlier t11is year with the waterline relocation on Villa Avenue. The waterline relocation was <br />followed with the construction of joint trenches for gas, telephone, cable TV, communication, <br />and electric lines. Currently, one of the main electrical line connections from Cleland Avenue to <br />Villa Avenue crosses the east side of the proposed Library building and therefore must be <br />relocated. <br />Tl1is overhead electrical line cannot be undergrounded based on Pacific Gas &Electric Company <br />(PG&E) policy and access requirements. The project's design removes this overhead power line <br />and installs new electrical poles at the east side of Town property, away from the new Library <br />building. <br />DISCUSSION: <br />Over the past three months, staff has collaborated with PG&E to prepare the utility easement <br />documents required by PG&E for this electric line relocation <br />PREPARED BY: TODD CAPURSO ~~`~ <br />Director of Parks and Public Works <br />Reviewed by:Assistant Town Manager/Deputy Director mown Attorney/General <br />Counsel/ Clerk Administrator/Secretary ~~Finance Community Development <br />...~~,_LL..._,.,.m.-,a-. ~....~w.v,.,.m-~.-..,F.~,.-.~...ycn,.. ~..~ W...,,~~..w..w..,.._...-,.~_..~..P,..~m,.m..~.~„~,.,,,.-.rc..,,.-v..,,-,-,-,,,~..~..~._,_~.,,.~,~.,.~_.......~,.,.....~.~..~,.~m....~..w,,.~.~,.~.,,. <br />N:\PPW\MANAGEMENT\COUNCIL\COUNCIL REPORTS\2010 Reports\June 7\Library.PGE.easement.doc <br />
