Vallejo City Council to be updated on waterfront property and negotiations with fire union
Vallejo City Hall

VALLEJO - Two items continued from a special closed session meeting of the Vallejo City Council from two weeks ago are scheduled to go before the council on Tuesday.

The council is expected to get an update from its labor negotiators, interim City Manager Mike Malone, interim Human Resources Director Mark Love, and representatives from the Sloan, Sakai, Yeung & Wong, LLP law firm about the status of labor negotiations between the city and the International Association of Firefighters, IAFF 1186, which represents Vallejo firefighters.

City staff will provide the council with an update about the Sekha Hills project at 285 Mare Island Way on the city’s waterfront.

The Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation acquired the rights to the property from the Adams Family Trust in August 2019. Vallejo leased the property to the trust since 1974. That lease is expected to expire in 2024, city staff previously said.

The Nation previously expressed plans to demolish the existing building on the property and construct a new two-story building with a cultural center and high-end restaurant.

City negotiators include interim Assistant City Manager Gillian Hayes, Paul Kelley, special advisor to the city manager and economic development manager, and City Attorney Veronica Nebb.

Finally, the council will receive information from its legal counsel about the city taking yet-to-be disclosed legal action.

“Based on existing facts and circumstances, the legislative body of the local agency has decided to initiate or is deciding whether to initiate litigation,” according to the government code section cited by the city.

The Vallejo City Council’s special closed session is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m., Tuesday and will be held via teleconference. Members of the public will be able to address the council about the closed session items prior to the council entering closed session, which the public is not allowed to attend.
