Street Rehabilitation
Description

This project involves the repair and preventative maintenance of local, collector and arterial streets based on street condition identified through the use of the City’s Pavement Management Program (PMP). The long-term goal is to achieve an average pavement condition index score equal to or greater than 70.

The City’s PMP is designed to maximize the longevity of streets with cost effective maintenance and repairs while working within budget constraints. By doing so, the infrastructure investment that the City has made in the street system over past years is preserved. Accelerated roadway deterioration leads to an increase in overall roadway maintenance costs. A street in good condition also prevents the formation of hazardous conditions such as potholes.

Below is a link showing the preliminary streets selected for treatment. The street sections will get a crack seal, slurry seal, or complete repaving depending on their condition:

WATER
Advanced Water Meter Infrastructure Project
Description

The City’s water meter system is at the end of its useful life and is due for replacement. The residential meter system was installed over twenty years ago in 1993 and has a twenty-year life expectancy. Due to age and deterioration over time, these meters cannot reliably detect flow rates below ¼ gallon per minute. The inability to read smaller flows increases unaccounted water losses to the City and compromises residents’ ability to detect and repair smaller leaks.

Installing an advanced meter system allows for remote monitoring and tracking of water usage by the customers and the City through the internet. Water conservation efforts are significantly promoted by providing more accurate water usage readings to customers which promotes a better understanding of their usage patterns and billing, helps to identify abnormalities and provides the opportunity to address water leaks which would have gone unnoticed in the old system. The advanced water meter system would provide the flexibility to switch to a monthly billing cycle in the future and eliminate the need for drive-by water meter reading.

Geographic Information System
Description

The proposed work program involves the upgrade and expansion of the existing Geographic Information System (GIS) infrastructure to allow staff to access GIS data through the internet. This upgrade to a web-based platform also provides an opportunity for the City to enhance public service by making certain GIS information available to the public through the City’s website, if desired. The proposed work program also plans for the continuing expansion of GIS into other aspects of the City’s
operations to enable more departments within the City to benefit from GIS. The end goal of this project is the centralization of all of the City’s physical assets in one location for increase in efficiency, and
ease of access for staff, residents, and support all reporting needs.

Current Fiscal Year deliverables are:
1. Elimination of third party property and ownership application, thus saving an annual maintenance fee of $6,300. The City currently utilizes a third-party application to obtain property owner information for mailings and other related tasks.
2. Utilize GIS for San Bruno CATV marketing strategies, track CATV field equipment locations and customer service records and allow editing of data by CATV field personnel.
3. Identify information that can be made available to the public through the City website.
4. Integration of Community Development’s code enforcement and building permits application.
5. Provide Disaster/Emergency mapping and printing capabilities for all field operations. The availability of accurate, up-to-date asset information and maps is critical in preparing for and responding to emergencies.

Records Management System
Description

This project proposes to replace the existing system with “RIMS” CAD and RIMS from Sun Ridge Systems. The Police Department’s current CAD and RIMS was purchased from Hitech systems in 2000. At that time, the system was expected to last 15 years; however, improvements in technology have made the RIMS product a more efficient system that will eliminate redundancies. RIMS will allow the Department to be compatible with other agencies in the county for information sharing and crime analysis. RIMS will also provide the public with greater access to information regarding criminal activity in their neighborhood.

The system installation would occur in three phases. The first phase would consist of the installation of hardware and software needed to operate the new system. The second phase would be the transfer of data from the old Hitech system to the new Sun Ridge system. The third and final stage before full implementation would be the training of all police personnel to properly operate the new system.

WATER
WASTEWATER
Dry Weather Flow Monitor at 7th Avenue
Description

This project will restore the City's ability to accurately measure the flows from San Bruno to the South San Francisco/ San Bruno Water Quality Control Plant. All sewage that flows from San Bruno to South San Francisco passes through the sewer mains on 7th Avenue and Tanforan Avenue. The flow meter located on 7th Avenue does not provide accurate flow measurement on a consistent basis- especially during periods of low flow. This project will construct improvements to restore accurate flow measurement.

Disaster Recovery Project
Description

This project will implement a disaster recovery project plan to ensure continued critical operations in the event of a catastrophic event that renders the existing data center “offline”. There is currently no disaster recovery system, plan, or procedure in place to protect the City’s electronic assets, which includes email records, financial data, and emergency response databases. Although nightly tape backups of the City’s data are performed, a catastrophic event occurring in City Hall and/or the data center could render the network, emails, data, and phones inoperable and/or inaccessible. Using the City’s existing virtual machine and storage systems technology, which was implemented in 2008, this project would ensure that sufficient technology services can be restored within a defined period of time. The project will also greatly reduce the vulnerability of the City’s data and phone network and to develop and test recovery plans and procedures. This project will meet the infrastructure and recovery objectives for the 20+ City software applications and the phone system.

Microsoft Office Project
Description

Replace the City’s Microsoft Office Suite 2000 with the newest Microsoft Office Suite, which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Publisher. The City of San Bruno currently uses Microsoft Office 2000 as the office production suite for employees to perform their daily tasks. This version has been in use since
2000 and is the only office suite available to City employees. Microsoft has released a number of new Office suites over the past ten years and with each version, new features are introduced to provide further efficiencies in daily tasks. With each new release, compatibility issues arise between older and newer
versions. This made it difficult, and at times impossible, for staff to work on documents from outside parties who are operating on newer version. Although the City has installed converters on the Citrix network to allow newer formatted documents to open, the enhanced features of the newer versions are lost in the
conversion due to compatibility issues. As these applications advance, compatibility with Office 2000 will decline. Support for Office 2000 has already passed its useful life and the replacement cost presented
includes on-site training for all users.
