Public Comment
Mark Williams, AC Transit Board Member, informed Council that AC Transit will purchase up to 65 buses from Gillig, Hayward.

Jim Drake complained about the noise levels associated with refuse collection by Waste Management. Pick-up is prohibited before 7 a.m. in the immediate vicinity of his home, which is next to commercial property, and was observed for approximately seven years. Almost two months ago, Waste Management resumed collection between 5 a.m. and 6 a.m. He furnished Waste Management with a copy of the City's Noise Ordinance but to no avail and resorted to parking his car to deny access to refuse trucks. He asks that the City enforce the Noise Ordinance/collection times as part of the franchise agreement with Waste Management.

John Super informed Council that Libitzky Holdings, LP has violated the terms of conditional use permit PL-2009-0100. A performance bond was not submitted to the City before the original use permit (97-160-13) expired on August 20, 2010 in respect of the estimated cost of demolition of the company's warehouse building and other buildings in the Cannery Area. He does not want to see blight in his neighborhood and would like any agreements enforced.

Desiree Unsworth, Administrative Intern, The Kids' Breakfast Club (TKBC), invited Council to attend TKBC's Saturday Academy on Global Youth Service Day, April 21, 2012. At 9 a.m., local youth volunteers will serve breakfast to low-income children and their families at Burbank Elementary School (B Street). Attendees will receive educational materials.
