New Citywide Fees and Charges for Services Effective September 1, 2018
On Tuesday, June 19, 2018, the City Council adopted an updated fee schedule that reflects the results of a citywide user fee study. The City had not conducted a comprehensive fee study in over 10 years. The fee study reflects the City’s current costs to provide services. The fee changes will go into effect on September 1, 2018. The City Finance Department is finalizing a consolidated City Master Fee Schedule which will be posted here on August 15, 2018. A copy of the Fee Study can be found here.
The project consists of installing removable bollards, from curb-to-curb, on Main Street near Holly Avenue and just north of Fire Station #1. The work to be performed will consist of trenching, concrete pouring, and asphalt pavement restoration. During construction, traffic on Main Street between Holly Avenue and Grand Avenue will be restricted but remain open in both the north and south directions. If necessary, traffic might be restricted overnight (no construction) but remain open in both the north and south directions. It will take approximately 6 weeks for the Contractor to complete the project, weather permitting. On Thursdays, the Farmers Market will not be impacted and remain open during construction.
A second letter will be hand delivered by the Contractor closer to the actual construction time to those immediately adjacent to the project site. This second notice will provide more information regarding the specific construction times and roadway closures.
The RSI program used funds from Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to treat homes from the effects of noise from LAX. As of May 11, 2018, LAWA and FAA will no longer reimburse the city for RSI administrative expenditures. This means the RSI program cannot continue unless expenses are paid from the City’s general fund and there is no predictable schedule when construction can restart. Terms and conditions for performing RSI work have changed and some of the criteria are yet to be resolved. As such, the city does not feel that there is a benefit to the residents for continuing to be involved in this process. Instead, staff recommends that the airport be responsible for mitigating the noise it creates which is the normal RSI arrangement throughout the country. With no source of funding, staff is recommending council direct the City Manager to terminate El Segundo’s RSI program.
In a continuing effort to strive for excellence in customer satisfaction, we have partnered with an independent research company, to administer a transaction point survey.
During your visit to the Library or City Hall, we invite you to complete the survey on the iPads installed on different counters. City staff can assist you in locating the iPads and starting the survey. We have decided to make it easier for you to provide feedback by making the survey short.
El Segundo is genuinely interested in your candid evaluation of our performance. We want to understand what we are doing well and what we can do better. Your feedback will be used to establish priorities for improving your customer experience.
We thank you in advance for your participation and engagement!
Last week, several “Bird” scooters were placed in our community. This was not done in consultation with City staff and as such the City of El Segundo was not given the opportunity to collaborate with the Bird Scooter Company on how to ensure the safety of our community while also preserving our quality of life.
