DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
On December 17, 2013, the Board authorized Lease Agreement No. 335-L1411 with Briw Office Investors for 38,875 square feet of office space located at 3057 Briw Road, Suite A and B; for the term commencing February 1, 2014 and ending December 31, 2023, with a total maximum obligation of $5,944,108.56 during the term of the lease, for office space to provide Federal and State-mandated client services; and to house Health and Human Services Agency Administration and Finance.

The PG&E Public Safety Power Shutoff events (PSPS) have emphasized the need for the County to install generators at all of its facilities both owned and leased. With the County experiencing several PSPS events in 2019 and again in 2020, time is of the essence to lessen these negative impacts to County operations.

The County has a 360KW generator available to install at 3057 Briw Road, allowing the building to remain open during PG&E PSPS events. The landlord has agreed to install the generator and pay for the underground and above ground infrastructure. The County would be responsible for all electrical costs, automatic transfer switch, disconnect switch, circuit breaker and the electrician labor to install. The County’s anticipated costs are estimated to not exceed $100,000. If the costs exceed $100,000, staff will return to the Board for approval of the expense.
