Town Of Moraga

Recent Town Council Actions on April 11, 2018

CHANGE TO SOCIAL HOST ORDINANCE APPROVED

Town Council adopted a change to the Social Host Ordinance in light of the new recreational marijuana laws. Currently, the Ordinance prohibits any person from hosting or allowing a party with over five persons under 21 years old where alcoholic beverages are possessed or used. This change adds recreational cannabis and cannabis products to this prohibition as it is illegal for persons under 21 to use or possess recreational cannabis. For more information, contact Police Chief Jon King.

ALL-ACCESS PLAYGROUND PROJECT ACCEPTANCE

Town Council accepted the site preparation, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements, playground equipment, and rubber safety surfacing work completed by HM Construction, Inc. and Ross Recreation Equipment. Due to penalties for non-performance, the project concluded $115,000 under budget.

2016 FULL DEPTH RECLAMATION PAVING PROJECT ACCEPTANCE

Town Council accepted the pavement improvements completed by Bay Cities Paving and Grading, Inc. Although the roadway reconstruction work on Bollinger Canyon Road (St. Mary’s Road to Joseph Drive), Corliss Drive (Wakefield Drive to Camino Ricardo), and Larch Avenue (#1160 Larch Avenue to Camino Pablo) was completed in 2016, the Town had to wait until all environmental permits were issued prior to completing paving and repairing the storm drain outfall that was undermining Bollinger Canyon Road in 2017.

SENATE BILL 1 FUNDS FOR PAVEMENT PROJECTS

On April 28, 2017, the Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 1, the Road Recovery and Repair Act of 2017. Various portions of this new funding will be deposited into the newly created Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account (RMRA). Town Council appropriated the Town’s allocation of $277,000 for this fiscal year into the 2018 Joint Moraga-Orinda Full Depth Reclamation project.

PROCLAMATION DECLARING ALCOHOL AWARENESS MONTH FOR APRIL 2018

Town Council presented a proclamation to Jaime Rich of the Lamorinda Alcohol and Drug Abuse Prevention Team (ADAPT) declaring April as Alcohol Awareness Month in Moraga, recognizing the problems inherent in the use of alcohol by under-age youth that affect all communities.
